Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Eastern Palace Sunflower

Hi there stampers!
I am guessing if you have been on Pinterest in the last month or two, you have seen alot of cards featuring the "Eastern Palace Suite"!  It's a bold, geometric, somewhat nontraditional set in Stampin'Up!'s lineup in the new catalog, coming out June 1st!  I've struggled a little with figuring out how to use it but have had some fun and success so far. Here's the unexpected card... a sunflower!

I used one of the thinlit medallions and cut two of them, one in So Saffron and one in Crushed Curry. I darkened the edges with some brown ink and a dauber, and also daubed my brick wall background a tad.  The stem is a branch from another set and the sentiment features a new punch and stamp set coming in a bundle.

As with all these cards I'm posting which feature new product, I will be bringing the card back again after June 1st, in the weeks and months ahead and sharing my techniques and supplies. For now, it's just a sneak peek!

Don't forget the retiring list is about to expire, May 31st!  There are still many great deals to be had and once it's gone, it's gone!

Have a great evening!
