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!

A Wonderful Life Together

Hi Stamper friends!
I'm back today with some new work from my stamping studio/craft room. I don't want to make it sound to pretentious... it's a spare bedroom where I can escape and create - haha!  Today I have a card that would serve double duty.. a wedding greeting or an anniversary card!  here it is:


I had a couple of goals with this card. I have been trying to design a card using our acetate sheets that have gold designs on one side and silver designs on the other. I was excited about them, thinking they would be super useful and it turns out they are harder to incorporate than I imagined!  I've made a few cards now that I haven't been crazy about but this one seemed to work. I chose the gold side of the polka dot acetate sheet.

And the flowers... more flowers!  Can we ever get enough?! This is a new bundle called "Beautiful Bouquet". There are tons of flower, leaf and stem options between the stamps and the framelits but the true value of this set is the many versatile sentiments. If I was a new stamper with a big shot, this would be a must have set for that reason alone! Here's a peak at the set:



You can see what I mean about all the options! Obviously you can make any kind of bouquet in any color scheme.  I also used this set to stamp a card and here it is:


I was trying to capture the sense of a field of blue flowers that we see when we are out hiking or 4-wheeling in the mountains. They are prolific this time of year and so pretty.  Here's the real thing:


This picture doesn't do them justice and they look more purple than blue here, but they are blue! Speaking of nature, you sure see a lot of Lemon Lime Twist out there among the leaves!

If you like what you see and would love to create some projects with stamps and ink, contact me and I'll get you started!  It's not expensive to get going on a project and gradually grow your stash of supplies with some well thought out purchases or even our monthly craft kit called Paper Pumpkin. This is a sport that all can play! Think about it !

Happy Stampin'!
