Happy Independence Day, Stampers!
What a fantastic holiday at just the right time of year. It's a day for sun, fun, water, BBQs, friends, family and fireworks! It's also a very memorable way to spend the day in labor and have a baby! That happened 30 years ago and we still marvel at the timing and miracle of the birth of Jenny Cade!
Shhhhhhh.... don't tell her, but here's a peak at the card I made for her for today! We are having a celebration with a lot of her friends and I wanted to make something special for her:
I can't tell you how hard it is to not go all out red, white and blue with a kid that has a birthday on the 4th. She had it all when she was young... clothes, sunglasses, flip flops, barrettes, jewelry, nail polish... you name it! She then went for several years with red, white and blue being banned from her wardrobe. It is slowly sneaking it's way back in now, haha!
For the card, I used a star mask and some embossing paste on Night of Navy card stock. I used water color paper and my Aqua painter with some red ink for the stripes. The rest is easy to figure out!
Hope you all have a terrific 4th! I'll be back tomorrow with lots of news and surprise promotions from Stampin'Up!
Happy Birthday America!
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!
