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!

Popsicle Fun

Hi Stampers!
It's Memorial Day weekend and while that means parades, ceremonies and remembering those who have served our country and fallen, it also signals the beginning of summer most of the time. We take things a bit slower in Montana and so it can still snow, but hopefully will be in and outta here before you know it!  I decided to feature a great summer treat today...Popsicles!  here's my card:

This stamp is from a great summer-themed set in the Occasions catalog and you can only purchase it for one more week, then it's gone!  Check out the stamp set itself and you'll see it features "all things summer"!

I don't live anywhere to really snorkel and I've never seen a starfish or dolphin in the neighborhood, but everything else screams summer fun! This would be such a great set to have on hand especially for kid-related projects.  A clear mount set is only $19.00 (#142261)!

My technique involved rolling a wet wipe up into a tube, about 4" long, then placing some drops of 3 different reinkers along the spine of the tube and swiping the wet wipe across the white card stock. One wet wipe inked up would probably yield 4-6 pieces of card stock before you would need to reink!

Take the time to check the Occasions Catalog out one more time and make sure you're not missing anything you wanted!  It's all gone after May 31st!

Happy Stampin'!
