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

Well hello everyone! Happy Monday to you! I might not be a big fan of Mondays, but this Monday I am extra excited as we are kicking off our Stampin' Up! Onstage Display Stamper Blog Hop! You are currently visiting me (Carolynn Sander), in Calgary, Alberta. I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator who had an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G time at my 1st ever OnStage Live event this month! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via Stesha Bloodhart! I met Stesha in Salt Lake City, and I was in awe with her display of creativity. I am sure you were equally impressed by her artistic work today! Remember to click on the NEXT button at the end of today's post so that you catch the entire line up of inspiring projects this talented group has to share! FYI... there are plenty of Stampin' Up! sneak peeks, as these displays involved products that are not for sale until January 3rd 2018! You won't be disappointed!

The card I decided to showcase today features one of my favourite new stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Occasions 2018 Mini Catalogue. It's called "Bird Banter". Believe me... after you play with this set you will understand what all of the "Banter" is about! It's pretty tweet! lol

This card features a pretty watercoloured background. To create this smooshed backdrop, I inked up some wax paper with a few of my fave colours. I then gave it a few spritzes of water, and smooshed my watercolour cardstock into it to create the bright wash. I then stamped the birdie, and gave him some extra colour with my Aqua Painter using the same colour palette. I think it gave this card a fun retro feel. That's what I was going for after all. The 80's & 90's might have been a while ago... but we aren't too old to appreciate some bright neon spunk right????

Well I don't want to hold you up from enjoying the rest of the fun today! There is a lot to take in!  Aurelie Fabre is next up! I can't wait to see what she has to share with us! Make sure to click on the NEXT button below so that you can check out her work today!
