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!

Whole Lot of Lovely

Hi Stampers!
How is your Wednesday going so far? Did you check out the Clearance Rack yesterday?  There are some great deals on last year's products. You can access it through the "shop now" link on the right.

I'm excited to share a fun card today that features the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. Boy, is it pretty!  It features hand-painted designs by a Stampin'Up! artist that are absolutely gorgeous. The paper is so pretty, it's hard to know what to do with it as you don't want to detract from it!  Here's my card:


As you can see, I combined the "Lots of Love" stamp set with the "Beautiful Bouquet" stamp set to try to get the right flower arrangement. I think the most striking thing is the black background on the Designer Series Paper. It really makes the colors pop.  Did you notice my embossed background?  I used a new favorite folder, the "Layered Leaves" folder which is a dynamic texture embossing folder and gives a really nice embossing with varying layers of depth.  This is a card where I wish my photographic skills and set up were more professional. The colors aren't quite perfect but I hope you get the idea!  Photography for my Stampin'Up! business is on my list of things to do!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any questions! I'm always ready to chat about crafting, haha!

Happy Stampin'!
Sarah
