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!

Florals on the Fence with the 2017-2018 In Colors!

Hello Friends,
I'm getting a slow start this week after a wonderful, memorable and bittersweet weekend in our former home of Casper, Wyoming. We celebrated the life of an incredible man that meant so much to our family. For some reason, my brain is a bit stuck in the past and I feel kinda foggy this morning, sorta like, "what's next"...  

After giving it a little thought, I think it's time to look forward to the new catalog, even though the debut is a couple of weeks away. I've been able to preorder some things and am enjoying my time playing with new products. That relaxes me, excites me and gives me something to look forward to many days!  I have a fun card for you today that combines a stamp and framelit bundle that were introduced last year, but are carrying over into the new catalog. It also shows off some of the new In-Colors including Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. Here's my card:



I decided I really wanted to show off the flowers and create some dimension, so the front of the card is only a half card. I stamped it with the favorite "Hardwood" stamp that we use all the time to create a fence look. I then stamped and cut flowers, leaves, berries etc from mostly new In-Colors with a splash of Sweet Sugarplum. The products I used are from the "Falling Flowers" bundle, #142329. which you can still purchase as a bundle until May 31st and save 10%. After May 31st, the stamps and framelits will be available, just not as a bundle with the extra savings.

I've got several events coming up the rest of the month and most will feature sneak peaks at what is coming in the new catalog. If you would like your own copy of the catalog, contact me and I'll get one to you! It's always fun to start with new products and see what ones will tap into your creative juices. I think 2017-2018 is going to be a very good year!

Happy Stampin'!
Sarah
