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!

You're the Best!

Hi Stamping Friends!
I have one more card to show you today from a recent class. I'm always trying to showcase different products and different techniques to keep people interested and expand their crafting horizons!  This card did quite a bit of both!  Here it is:

The background was inspired by a Stampin'Up! blog which reminded me about using the sponge brayers to get ink on some paper. I used Peekaboo Peach, Powder Pink and Berry Burst with the foam brayers on Shimmer White paper for some extra sparkle. They are fun to use because you have quite a bit of control over how much ink you wish to put on. I then cut out the center with a diamond pattern die from the Oh So Eclectic set.  Then, I ran my piece through the Big Shot with the Ruffles embossing folder and adhered some gold fold paper on the back of it, peeking through the diamond cutouts. That's a few steps for a background, but it was fun! I then used the flowers and leaves in the Oh So Eclectic set to decorate the top, added a sentiment and some gold thread. This was a fun card but it did take some extra time to cut everything out, especially in a class setting. I like to do both - whip a card out in a hurry and take some extra time to make a truly interesting and multi-dimensional card.

It's the weekend!  I will be getting ready for my Holiday Catalog Reveal party!  I hope you can stop by, it will be well worth it, I promise. It is next Tuesday, August 29th, from 3 to 7 p.m. at my home. Please contact me for the rest of the details!

Happy Stampin'!
