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!

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'!
Sarah
