Stampin' Up! Bird Banter Birthday - #TGIFC 153

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 a handmade birthday 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 inspiring ideas! 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! It's a ton of fun!

Today's theme is anything goes for our TGIF Design Team! Yay! This made me excited as I had one more card left to share from my Onstage Live Display Board from last November in Salt Lake City! As well, we could all use a few more birthday cards right? Now if you wish to join in this week, the idea is you create a project that has been inspired by one of the TGIF Design Team projects this week. I would love for you to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) any aspect of my card! Check it out below!   

This card features the Bird Banter Stamp Set. I chose to make a card using this set that has ZERO birds. Why? Well because I really did want to showcase just how versatile this set is! If you aren't familiar with the Bird Banter Stamp Set you can check out all of the images in this set in the photo below!
Isn't it fabulous? The birds have so much character. As well, there are some great sentiments in this set! Making it perfect for just about any paper crafting project!

Today's card also features the Stampin' Blends markers. Small stamps like this balloon are great for practicing your blending with these alcohol based markers! If you aren't familiar with the Blends check out the video from Stampin' Up! below! You will fall in love.💖

Finally, since this is my last share from my display board at Onstage Live in Salt Lake City, and I have so many great memories from that trip, I am going to share a photo of my display board one last time. If you are in Canada, and you are interested in attending a Stampin' Up! Onstage event, you can contact me to join my team! Check out more details on becoming a demonstrator by clicking HERE.

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! 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!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! Bookcase Builder Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via my wonderfully talented friend Maike Beimler!  She is always creating amazing works of art! 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! It's an incredible line up!


The theme today is "New Life"! This topic can include anything from baby, to wedding, to spring! You name it! If it marks the start of something new, it fits the theme for today! I can't wait to see all of the new ideas our team has to share with the world! For my "New Life" project I went with a baby shaker card today! I just so happen to know a special someone who is expecting a baby boy this summer so I couldn't help myself! I love shaker cards, but it's been a few months since I had created one so it was time. Check out my cutsie rubber ducky congrats card below. I was pretty pleased with the result. With some imagination and few of my favourite Stampin' Up! products this card came together quite nicely.

If you are curious as to how you can create your own shaker card, just check out the video from Stampin' Up! below. They are pretty fun to make!

Well I hope that you enjoyed today's project. Up next is Brian King! He has amazing style! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today!
