Happy Birthday!


Hi and welcome to my first post!  My name is Jane Knudsen.  I have been a stamper for over 20 years and a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 2 years.  I love the SU! product line but in the interest of full disclosure I will use other products from time to time.  I will note what I use at the end of each post.

I love to create cards, duh! Otherwise I wouldn’t be giving this blog thing a try! I hope to entertain you a little bit and inspire you to create!  Here we go….

For my first card, I thought the Stampin’ Up! Map It Out stamp set was perfect.  Welcome to Big Sky Country, the Treasure State, the Last Best Place!  Montana is a great place to live.  I was lucky enough to be born and raised in Montana.  Even when I moved to Idaho for a few years, I couldn’t wait to get back.  Ever been driving and have to roll down the window and shout out?  That was me, every time I went over Monida pass.  Dead of winter or not, I rolled the window down and gave a shout!  Nobody ever shouted back which is a good thing as I would have probably driven off the road!

This card is an odd size for me, coming in at 3½ by 5½.  I am one who generally sticks to the standard card size but because of the shape of the stamp, I didn’t want too much white space left on the card. I used the new memento black ink and a little real red for the X.  The card base is midnight muse (just retired today!), layered with real red and white cardstock.  Throw a little midnight muse ribbon and a real red button on and you are done!

Thank you for stopping by today to see what I made.  Please be sure to stop back again!
