Happy Friday Stampers!
I'm glad to see the weekend get here, aren't you?! Our subdivision is having a garage sale tomorrow so we've been cleaning out some nooks and crannies to see what we can part with. My husband and I downsize in small baby steps so it isn't so painful - haha!
I have an amazing, simple card for you today. One of the new products is a great, large Happy Birthday greeting thinlit that you can cut out with your Big Shot. So the greeting would really stand out, I cut two of them, one in white and one in Calypso Coral to place behind and slightly to the left of the white. I think it really helps the white greeting standout and gives more of a 3D effect. What do you think?
I used some fabulous new Designer Series Paper that is coming out in the new catalog (June 1st) and some of the new In Color ribbon, Tranquil Tide. Did you notice the cute little bow? These are In Color embellishments that are also going to be in the new catalog! I don't care how good your fine motor skills are, you couldn't tie a bow that cute on your own!
Speaking of Big Shots, do you have one? If not, you should consider it! This fabulous embossing and die cutting machine steps your papercrafting up multiple levels and is indispensable for me. I use it multiple times a day and rarely make a card without it. Check out the store (along the right side of the blog) for more information. I also have some ideas on how to get one for a reduced price by hosting a party or pooling some orders with your friends. I've never had anyone purchase one that wasn't glad they did and frankly wondering why they didn't sooner!
Hope you have a great weekend!
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!
