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! 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!

Let’s Get Hopping Round 17 - Simple Stamping

Well hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful February! If you are new here, my name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta. I am so happy to have you here with me today! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via the wonderful Eimear Carvill! Wasn't her project today fabulous? I would have to say so! If you want to capture all of the simply stunning creations that are part of today's blog hop, make sure to click on the next button at the end of this post!

The theme for today's hop is "Simple Stamping". This is a topic that can actually be quite tricky for the seasoned stamper. It was definitely a good challenge for me to take on, as sometimes simple can actually be quite stunning. Don't yah think? Have a peek at my "Simple" set of note cards below.

Are you in love with the Stampin' Up! Happy Tails Photopolymer Bundle? Well I am! I decided to cheat a little bit today, and I paired this bundle with the Stampin' Up! Part of My Story Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Stamp Set. I figure it's not really cheating because by the time you purchase the Stampin' Up! Happy Tails Photopolymer Bundle, as well as the Stampin' Up! Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes, plus an Ink (or two), you are pretty much earning the Part of My Story Stamp Set for free! Check out the rest of the sentiments that are part of this Sale-A-Bration stamp set in the image below!

These sentiments would pair wonderfully with many stamps and papers in the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues! I also love that they are great for card making OR memory keeping!πŸ’–

If you noticed I actually sponged the wee puppies that you see on today's note cards using the negative of my punched out pooch as a mask. I am bias, and of course I love the "Golden" puppy the most. I actually only see a Golden Retriever pup when I look at this punch. Saying that, I do think that when this little doggy is inked up in different neutrals he/she can reflect many breeds that are near and dear to our hearts. These cards can be used as notes to send to your loved ones whom may have lost their furry friends, or they can be sent just to say you care. Either way... aren't they adorable?

Well I hope that you have enjoyed today's set of cards, AKA one of my first modern day "Simple Stamping" project posts! For a full list of supplies used to create today's cards make sure to scroll down to the end of this post.
