Stampin' Up! Best Route Memories & More Card Pack - #TGIFC203

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with a fun challenge! Come on over to the TGIF Challenges site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see how this week's "Out of this World" theme inspires you!

When I pondered this week's theme, I imagined creating a beautiful galaxy card. I truly LOVE the galaxy background technique! You can learn how to create a galaxy background by clicking HERE. This previous post of mine includes a complete tutorial, so make sure you have a look if it interests you. Anyhow, it ended up that I really just didn't have the time this week to create that galaxy background. Life happens right? Like Every Freak'n Day! So I decided to go with the simple route! & The Stampin' Up! Memories & More cards came to my rescue!


Other than a little dry embossing, and a little bow tying, today's card was literally slapped together! Now that's what I call inspiring! A card in a quickie is my kind of card these days!  



I think I will be making a few more of these simple cards for all of those celebrations that pop up this year! & In the meantime, I will remember to "Live In The Moment". After all... when we are no longer here (& when we are), it's these moments that matter most.💖

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope that you leave here feeling a wee bit inspired. 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! Here Comes The Sun Stamp Set - #TGIFC201

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with another inspirational colour combo! Come on over to TGIF Challenges site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see how today's soft and subtle hues inspire you!

When I first studied this week's colour combo I pictured spring and Easter! I actually really can't wait until spring! The cold weather up here in the great white north gets a little depressing after a while. I decided to brighten my day by creating a flowery card with today's colours! Saying that, I have to apologize, but I really didn't see the Saffron fitting in with my project. So I decided to opt out of it! You can too if you wish! The colours are really there for inspiration! So do as you wish & let your creative juices flow!


I really adore the sayings that come in the Stampin' Up! Here Comes The Sun Stamp Set! You can earn your set for free if you place a qualifying hostess order! It's definitely one of my favourite hostess sets of recent! & The best part is, it's photopolymer! Meaning you can bend and twist the stamps to reshape the sentiments to your liking, as I have done on today's project! Check out all of the images that come in this set below and you will catch my drift! 

  

What do you think? Isn't this set fabulous? If you would like to check out another card I created with it you can do so by clicking HERE. It is so versatile! I am sure you could create your own unique fabulous creations with it! Or feel free to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) mine! Sharing is caring after all! 

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope that you leave here feeling a wee bit inspired. Remember to stop by the TGIF Challenges site to join in the fun this week!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

The theme for today is Sale-A-Bration! Sale-A-Bration is by far my most crafty time of year!💖 After all, who doesn't love free stamps & all? Today's card features one of my most beloved Sale-A-Bration sets for 2019! The Hello Cupcake Stamp Set!



This set is perfect for creating those much needed birthday cards for the year! And if you are in Canada (or if you aren't), it is seriously so cold here right now! Being snowed in makes for the perfect excuse to craft your day away! I plan on making a few more cards like this, but in different colours so that I always have a birthday card on hand this year! I can't wait to see what this cupcake looks like when whipped up with a few different frostings!


Well I won't keep you too long today, I hope you enjoyed today's project! For a complete list of the Stampin' Up! products that I used, check out the supply list below.

Stampin' Up! Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Stamp Set - #TGIFC199

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with a fun challenge! Come on over to the TGIF Challenges site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see how Sale-A-Bration inspires you!

For today's project I decided to challenge myself to keep it simple with the use of just stamps, ink, and paper! #simplestamping

  
This card uses one of my fave stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalogue, as well as the "Celebrate Your Day" sentiment stamp from the Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Stamp Set which is part of the 2019 Sale-A-Bration product line. I simply stamped my images on Thick Whisper White Cardstock using Momento Black Ink. I then coloured them in with a few of my favourite Stampin' Blends and voila! 



I think I will be making a few more of these simple cards for all of the kid birthdays that we have coming up this year! I never have enough of those! What do you think? 

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope that you leave here feeling a wee bit inspired. Remember to stop by the TGIF Challenges site to join in the fun this week!
