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!
