Stampin' Up! Time For Tags Stamp Set - #TGIFC227

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 some crafty inspiration! Come on over to TGIF Challenges Site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see what you come up with!



This week's TGIF theme is "Embossing Powder". If you want to add that simple WOW factor, then embossing powder is the way to go!


Today's card features my favourite Stampin' Up! hostess set. "Time For Tags" is both adorable & versatile! Check out all of the stamps that are included in this set in the image below.


As far as the embossing component, black embossing powder is the bomb! The "WOO-HOO" stamp, & the pineapple image (both showcased today), were both embossed with black powder! Colouring in your stamped images is a breeze when you choose to emboss first! Long story short, embossing is my favourite go to for stamping lined images!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colours

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 the Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colours! I always love adding a few new colours to my Stampin' library. And this year's colours are pretty fabulous!


For today's project I went with just three of the five 2019-2021 Stampin' Up! In Colours. I absolutely love how these colours flow together! Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, & Purple Posy! Check them out in that order below! Are they not beautiful? 



And how about that mane? Is it not fabulous? Are you curious as to how I created those crimped strands of coordinating unicorn hair? Well guess what? They were pulled from my most favourite ribbon! Yep! I pulled my ribbon apart to create unicorn hair! The exact same Stampin' Up! ribbon you see below! 


Next time you are looking for that special coordinating embellishment, but you don't want ribbon, just hack that ribbon and pull out some pretty strands! You can go wild with ribbon fibres! Wild like a unicorn!

Hmmm... speaking of unicorns, one of my most favourite humans, who is a lover of all unicorns, made a pretty magical card this week! I loved it so much! And I love her even more! So I promised her I would post it on my blog. I have to say that I am so very blessed to be this little girl's mom. And to share her wonderful creation with you all makes me smile from ear to ear. There is nothing better in life than sharing what you love, with those you love the most. πŸ’–


On that note, next up in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His creations are always magical!

Cheers & Happy Stamping!
