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!

Pedal Power!

Hi Stampers!
I can't believe it is Thursday already!  I'm hosting a fun Holiday Catalog Release party next week, Tuesday, August 29th, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and I've been busy getting ready!  I took some time out for some classes this week and wanted to share one of the cards we made.  It features the fabulous bicycle stamp set and framelits!  They are so easy to use and have some many cute accessories!  Here's the card we made in class:

I wanted to do something special with the background, so we inked up the brick embossing folder prior to running it through the Big Shot. If you ink up the "brick" side and not the "mortar" side, you will get the right results!  I used a 1" strip of the wood grain paper for a floor and then built the bike! There are many choices, but no surprise, I chose a dog to put in my basket!

Here's another version with some retired paper:

If you love bikes, this could be a great addition to your stamping collection!  Here's a look at the stamp set so you can see all the possibilities:

It's easy to work with and between the stamps and framelits, you can create a wonderful bike-themed design!

Hope you enjoyed today's cards!  I'll be back tomorrow!
Happy Stampin',
