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!

Time to get out the chairs and umbrellas!

Hi Stampin'Friends!
As we get closer and closer to the 4th of July, I'll bet many of you are heading out on an adventure of some kind this weekend!  The campgrounds, trails and lakes will be packed around here!  The weather forecast is for lots of heat and sun so that will definitely add to the fun!

I have a fun card today featuring a beach/lakefront/ballgame/concert in the park scene... you pick!  You've seen those comfy beach chairs and umbrellas to shade you and I decided to recreate that image! Here's my card:

I combined two popular stamp sets and framelits, "Colorful Seasons" and "Weather Together" .  I sponged some Crumb Cake ink on my Soft Sky background card stock to look like some sand. I then stamped the three chairs and matching umbrellas which were cut out with framelits.  There seemed to be something lacking so I added the stick on dot at the top of the umbrellas!  I thought this would be a great card to send to someone special that you've vacationed with or spent some relaxation time with.

It's fun to try and combine different sets. It makes the creativity go that much further ;)

Hope you have a great and safe weekend! Be sure to check back Monday when I'll have all the details of some special promotions coming up in July! You won't want to miss out!

Happy Stampin'!
