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!

Background Bits Thank You

Hi Stampin' friends!
One of the things I'm always excited to check out are the Hostess Stamps in our catalogs. They are usually at the back of the catalog, require a minimum purchase to be able to order and are such a great value!  I think they are often some of the more unique and trendy stamps that Stampin'Up! comes up with!  You can get 1 or 2 of them with an order in the $150-$200 range!  My first choice was the "Background Bits" stamp set. I love anything with a vintage, collage feel to it and of course anything with a antique script. This stamp set had them all!  Here's my card:

I tried to work as many elements in as I could and used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (DSP) to direct my color palette. Are you wondering about that new looking ribbon?  It's a great new ribbon offered in all of last year's In Colors (2016-2018). You can resist stripes and when the ribbon is narrow, even better!  I love this card. Here's a peek at my process/supplies:

It's easy to be inspired with such beautiful paper and stamps and colors. Contact me if you want to know how to get this stamp set for yourself!  It's a keeper ;)

Happy Stampin'!
