Stampin ' Up! 2018 Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Display Stamper Blog Hop ~ Day Seven


Hi everyone! Welcome to the final day of our Stampin' Up! OnStage Display Stamper Blog Hop! If you have been hopping along you most likely arrived via Stesha's Blog! She is pretty amazing! I am so pleased to have you here with me in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! As a display stamper,  I was one of fourteen Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in North America to be chosen for this role. Today myself, and 19 other display stampers from around the globe, are on day seven of sharing some amazing inspirational projects that were created with Stampin' Up! (not yet released) products. These products will be available on January 3rd, 2018! Therefore, I hope you enjoy all of the sneak peeks we are sharing with you. Be sure to click on the NEXT button at the end of today's post so that you don't miss out on the entire line up of inspiration! 


Today's project is probably one of my favourite creations. This is actually the first time I have created a banner with my Stampin' Up! products. I think I will be stowing it away so that I can use it at various celebrations throughout the year! It features the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Tutti-frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, the Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon, as well as the Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon! These items combined beautifully when it came time for me to create this fun banner! I also chose to use one of my favourite stamp sets from the annual catalogue, the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Photopolymer Stamp Set!


When it came to creating the actual banner pieces, the Stampin' Up! Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, and my Stampin' Up! Banner Triple Punch came in handy! I can see myself using these tools for all of my future banners!

Since today is the last day for this wonderful Display Stamper Blog Hop, I thought I would share with you a photo of my actual display board! If you notice, there are a few projects on here that I have yet to share close ups of. Don't you worry, I will be showcasing these projects on my blog in the coming months. I had to save some of the surprise for later! Thank you so much for following along with us all this week! I hope you have enjoyed everyone's posts as much as I have.


I hope that this seven day hop has inspired you! Or made you a wee bit excited for January to come along! Next up today is Aurelie Fabre! She is one of this years Artisan team members! I am sure she will wow us with her projects today! Click on the NEXT button below so that you don't miss out!

Stampin' Up! Color Theory Shaker Card ~ #TGIFC135 Ombre

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 I have an "Ombre" themed Christmas shaker card to share with you! I hope you enjoy it! As well, remember to check out the TGIF Challenges site today! There are lots of awesome ombre projects to enjoy! If you feel inclined, we would love to have you join in with us this week! Have fun creating your masterpiece and upload it to your blog or favourite social media site. Then share it to our page! The more the merrier!



According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of ombre is, "Having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark." The ombre look is very popular these days. You see it in fashion, hair, interior design ... really almost everywhere you look, and the papercrafting world is no exception! You will find many ombre masterpieces surrounding you if you keep your eyes peeled! That is what makes this theme a great one for this week's TGIF Challenge!


There are many ways one can achieve that blended ombre look with inks and paper. Saying that, I kinda cheated today. What do I mean by this? Well I used a sheet of paper from my fave pack of Stampin' Up! DSP to create the ombre project you see here! This made it easy oh peasy! Have a look at the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack in the photo below! You will see why it is a must have! The colours are so bright and fun! As well, these papers are oh so versatile!


Well what do you think? Is this DSP not beautiful? Just think of all of the possibilities! #SwoonπŸ’–

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

Cheers & Happy Stamping!

Stampin ' Up! 2018 Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Display Stamper Blog Hop ~ Day Four



Well hello everyone! Here we are on day four of our display stamper hop! By now you must know what this is all about right? I hope that you are enjoying all of the Stampin' Up! sneak peek fun! If you have been hopping along you most likely arrived here in Calgary, Alberta, via Stesha's blog. She has some amazing creativity that girl! Not sure if my Tutti-frutti card will be quite as superb as her artwork today, but I think you will enjoy it regardless. These fun new Stampin' Up! products make it easy to give a quick wow!




Today's project features the "Fruit Basket" stamp set. I love how this pear stamp pairs with the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper (DSP). And did you notice that new Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon? It also pairs perfectly with this combo of products! As far as I am concerned Stampin' Up! nailed it with this fruity line! When creating this great pear card, I added in a few of my other favourites from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue as well. I love how all of the products Stampin' Up! releases combine so nicely! 

Well I don't want to hold you up! There is a lot to take in today so let's carry on with the hop! I am sure Aurelie Fabre will wow you with her work today!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop ~ Tutti-frutti DSP

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander's blog in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via Janneke de Jong ! Wasn't her project this week fabulous? I would have to say so! Make sure to click on the next button at the end of this post so that you catch all of the fabulous projects our team has to share with you today! Our group is a wee bit smaller this week! That just means you will hop through the line up with a little more speed! I think OnStage took the wind out of a few of us. lol



The theme this week is circles! I decided to showcase this Kiwi card that was part of my OnStage Live display board in Salt Lake City this past month. The Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper (DSP) is not available for sale until January 3rd, so this a a little tease I know! Aren't those kiwi circles adorbs though?


Being from Canada, I didn't realize how popular this "Kiwi" card would be with my New Zealand friends! I have a couple New Zealand pals who have now made it very clear to me that they NEED a "Kiwi" card to call their own. lol I will be ordering more of this DSP when it becomes available so that I can send a batch of these cards off in the mail! The DSP and Lemon Lime Twist Sequins used on this card are not available for sale until January. Saying that, I used some of my favourite current products on this card as well. Check out the supply list below for more info on what exactly went into the making of today's project!

Maike Ulbrich is up next in the hop today! She has amazing style! I can't wait to see what circle inspired project she has to share with us today!



Are you interested in seeing some more display stamper sneak peeks?

Thank you so much for visiting today! If you have any questions in regards to today's project feel free to contact me! As well, if you are in Canada and you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up! products, I would love to have you visit my Stampin' Up! online shop! Just click on the shop button below if you wish!
