Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Friend ~ You're the Best!

Happy Friday Stamper Friends!
Man, the weeks go fast, don't they!  I always feel like the week is stretching out pretty long before me on Monday and Tuesday, then I turn around and it's about noon on Friday. What happens? If you figure that out, let me know please. I'll bet I could get a lot more done!

No matter how fast time flies, we should still take time to let a friend know how much they mean to us. I'm guilty of thinking about this way more often than taking the time to express it verbally or with a handmade card. I have a card today that would be just the ticket for a dear friend!

My card uses the new "Lovely Inside and Out" Bundle, however, I just used the framelits this time.  There are three of them which say "Friend", "Hugs" and "Lovely".  They come in an outer shape of a circle, oval and heart so you can add other framelits to cut outside and complete the circle, oval or heart if you want to, which is what I did. My "friend" piece on the front of the card actually used 3 framelits, the "friend" one from this set, an oval from the "Stitched Shapes" set and an oval from the previously retired ovals set for the white piece. I wanted the white card stock behind the "friend" die cut because my background paper was just busy enough that the word didn't pop like I wanted it to. I added a half doily, ribbon and some Fresh Florals Designer Series paper, all featuring the new In Color, Fresh Fig. Here's a peek at the framelits so you can get a better idea of how they work! This picture is taken from the Stampin'Up! website:

Are you curious about the inside, especially the leaves?  Believe it or not, that stamp comes from the
"Numbers of Years" set - a little obscure when you are thinking about leaf sets, but I love the stenciled look of it. I used Tranquil Tide for the ink, another new In Color. The punched out piece and sentiment are from a fabulous new bundle, "Label Me Pretty".  One of my favorite things is combining stamp sets and tools from a wide variety of styles and products. I think that is how you can get a unique design that perhaps no one else has thought of before. I love my art to be wonderful and wonderfully unique!
