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!

Consider Yourself Hugged

Hi Stampers!
I hosted a fun class last night for ladies who prefer night classes due to work, small children or for whatever reason! We had a great time and also a chance to make a little more complicated cards that took some patience along the way with fussy framelits!

When some Designer Series Paper is especially beautiful, I love to feature it. Another thing that is fun is to try to mimic it with stamping, which is what we did with this card:

This beautiful creation uses the "Whole Lot of Lovely" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the "Lots of Love" Stamp set. There are stamps that help you recreate the flowers and leaves that are featured on the DSP, hand painted by a talented Stampin'Up! artist! This is also a great color scheme. Can you imagine a floral themed card with no reds, pinks, oranges, purples?  Here it is!  We took a 3"x 3" piece of white card stock and stamped it up, then cut out the circle, allowing us to place the framelit where we wanted it. It's fun to try and create the same overall design with stamps, that is on paper.

My "Ladies Night" stamping class will be happening monthly so if that time slot works for you, join us some time!  You can keep up on all my classes and events by checking out the calendar on my SU website and even RSVP through the website.

Hope you are having a lovely week!
