Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Large Sentiment

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 one of my all time paper crafting idols Tanya Rees! She lives down under! I hope one day I can give her a big squishy hug in person. In the meantime, I am so happy to be sharing our hand-made papercrafting treasures with you as part of today's blog hop! ❤️ 

The theme for today's hop is "Large Sentiment"! I hence chose a larger flower stamp for today's project, and made my best attempt at including my largest coordinating sentiment. I truly hope that it inspires you to create whatever your heart desires! 

Today's card features one of my most favorite stamp sets that will be retiring soon. It is the Stampin' Up! Band Together Stamp Set! All of the images included in this set are pictured in the photo below. If you want to purchase this set for yourself make sure you do so soon so you don't regret missing out on this opportunity! 

My dear Grandma passed away last November. Somehow the card that I created for today's hop reminds me so much of her. She always loved her flowers. She looked beautiful in yellow. She is forever my Grandma. Forever my friend. Forever with me. I like to think that I got my smile and that wee bit of sparkle that lies within me within me from her. 

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration piece! Feel free to leave a comment below, or message me if you have any questions. & On that note, up next in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His projects are always spectacular! Love you 4-Ever BK!

Stampin' Up! Cute Fruit Stamp Set - #GDP282

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog! If you are new here, my name is Carolynn Sander and I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. I am delighted to have you here today. It's been a whirlwind of a year and I feel like I am finally finding some balance in life . Having the energy and time to create is something I have missed this past year. I am hoping to be a wee more present on my blog in the future, so stop by as often as you like as I am sure I will have more crafting projects and ideas to share with you. 

Isn't this such a fun card I have to share with you today? I pulled inspiration from the Global Design Project weekly challenge when creating today's cutsie card! I was also inspired by the amazingly talented Melody Hyde. She has come up with some amazing tips and tricks for creating the layered sentiment that is on today's project. Check out her facebook page if you are interested in more inspiration, and to see her video tutorial that helped me out big time!  

The Stampin' Up! Cute Fruit Stamp Set is one of those hidden stamping gems. It is not showcased in the regular  Stampin' Up! Catalogue, rather it is in  the Beginner Stampin' Up! Guide! You can check out this guide by clicking on the picture link below. The guide is great for newbies and seasoned stampers alike! It is packed with inspiration! 

Now for the adorable stamp set! Check out all of the amazing images below! There are so many ideas that flow when I look at this set. What is extra awesome is you can purchase the set as a bundle shown below, or on it's own. The options are unlimited! 

If you are in Canada and you are interested in create your own "Bananas" card for that crazy fun friend of yours make sure to click on the shop icon at the end of today's post! 

Last thing to share with you today is the beautiful inspiration sketch from the Global Design Project Team! Take a look at the sketch and allow it to inspire you to create a fun project! #GDP282
