Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Vellum

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 the wonderfully talented Cathy CainesI have a feeling that she left you feeling pretty inspired today!


The theme for today is anything and everything to do with vellum! I hope you enjoy my vellum infused project!


I love adding soft touches of vellum to my hand made cards. The little sprigs of vellum that are layered with my die cut leaves here add the perfect subtle detail that is needed to make this card a wee bit more fancy than average. I am not sure if it is noticeable in the photos, but I also dry embossed a piece of vellum with the Stampin' Up! Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It is hiding behind the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. Not only did I dry emboss this small piece of vellum, but I covered it with the Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint. The shimmer paint gives the vellum a pearl finish which coordinates just perfectly with the Stampin' Up! Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.


Well that's it for my vellum inspiration today, but I know that the rest of the Be Inspired Design Team has much more to share with you! Up next in today's blog hop is my talented friend Janneke de Jong! I can't wait to see what she has to share with us!

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Bike Ride - #TGIFC187

Hi everyone! If you are new here my name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This week the TGIF Challenges Team has a fun back to the basics technique theme! We are getting spongy this week! With ink, shimmer paint, you name it!  Be sure to check out all the projects over at TGIF Challenges! As well, we would love to have you join in with us! Come on over and show us what you got!


For my project this week I decided to sponge my backdrop for today's card!


Sponging a nice even background is super easy with Stampin' Up! Inks and the Stampin' Up! Sponge Brayers!


These brayers are seriously one of my fave tools from the catty! Best part is that you can clean them with soap and water between each use so that you can use them with multiple colors! Just make sure that you allow them enough time to dry out in between! Check out the supply list below for a complete list of products used on today's card. Not gonna lie, this is my first time using the bike stamp from the "Bike Ride" stamp set. I thought I was pretty clever by putting a merry spin on it! What do you think?

Again thank you so much for stopping by! & Remember to stop by the TGIF Challenges site to 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! Merry Christmas To All - #TGIFC185

Hi everyone! Welcome to another fun inspiration challenge with the TGIF Challenges Team! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This week the TGIF Challenges Team has a fun sketch to share with you! It's a super versatile one! We would love to see your spin on it, so be sure to join in with us! Make sure to visit the TGIF Challenges page for more details!


Is this sketch not fabulous? I can't wait to make a spring card with it. I picture lemon slices when I stare at it! Saying that, we haven't even endured the winter yet so it had to be a Christmas card for today's share!
