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!

Every Day is an Adventure !

Hi stampers!
I'm back today with more travel/camping/adventured themes!  I can never get enough of these. I'm not really a seasoned traveler and tend to stick to about a 5 state region, but I do love to get away and regard any road trip as an adventure, even if it's to the town 25 miles east for a really good pizza burger (Mark's In and Out in Livingston, BTW) !!

I was really impressed with the July Paper Pumpkin kit and as I put my cards together, I realized I could easily recreate the same look with some of my supplies. I used some retired corrugated paper for my mountains and the rest is history!  Here's my card:

It may be obvious, but it's one of those things that bears mentioning. You need to cut your panorama circles 1/4" (at least) larger than your circle in your card front!  I used dimensionals to adhere the layers, to give a fully dimension effect.  As for the stamp set, I have featured this delightful hostess stamp before on my blog. It is "Dare to Dream" and is available with a $150 or more order. Stampin'Up! loves to spoil those who put in big orders, or host a party of several smaller orders and give you a chance to purchase some special stamps at a big discount, that are not otherwise available. My color palette for this card was Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Soft Suede - all great colors and very full of nature!

I don't have classes scheduled next week so plan on creating as many new projects and samples as I can to inspire you, heading into the Holiday Catalog time period!  Demonstrators get to order starting August 1st and customers will be able to order when the catalog goes live on September first. That's another good reason to consider becoming a demonstrator- much quicker gratification with new products, haha! Ask me the details and I'll happily share the scoop.

Have a great weekend!  It's the last week of July, still more summer fun to be had!
Happy Stampin'!
