Creating Kindness Blog Hop - Rustic

Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to another Creating Kindness around the world blog hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. If you have been following the hop you would have just arrived here via the talented Danielle Bennenk. Her project was very country chic I would have to say! Did you love it as much as I? The theme for today's hop is anything and everything "Rustic"! Our hop today is full of many rustic and fun ideas! I hope you enjoy! As well, remember to click on the next button at the end of this post so that you can follow the entire hop!

I am not much for words today. To be truthful, I created this card over a week ago in preparation for this hop. I was in my element at the time and had thought out every detail. I am very happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately, our beloved dog Rosie passed away very suddenly two days ago, and like I said my words have left me. I like to think this card is for her... our Rosie.

Rosie you are and always will be our dear friend. Thank you for blessing our lives with your light and love. OXO

Next up in the hop is Lou Kitzelman! She has a stunning project to share with us today!💖 Click on the next button below so that you don't miss out!

Watercolour Card With Stampin' Up! Sunny Days

Hi everyone! Welcome to another fun Friday with the TGIF Challenges team! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Today the TGIF team has a gorgeous colour palette to share with you! Check out the TGIF Challenges site to take in all of the pretty projects our team has created with these fun colours! You will love all of the inspiration!

What do you think of this month's colour combo? Is it not superb? I would have to say so. Here's what I came up with using these hues. 

For today's card I decided to create a pretty watercolour wash for my backdrop! I then embossed the images you see here with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder. I am so excited to have the black powder back in this years Stampin' Up! catalogue! It has always been a favourite of mine!

I then watercoloured the images and added a glossy shine by dabbing the images with my Stampin' Up! Fine-Tip Glue Pen. This glue pen is great for adding detail to your papercrafting projects! It can also be used to adhere tiny elements such as sequins! 

Well I hope that you enjoyed today's project! Thank you so much for visiting today! Remember to stop by the TGIF Challenges site and join in the fun this week! As well, if you are from Canada check out my online 24/7 Stampin' Up! supply shop below!

Cheers & Happy Stamping!
