Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Sweet Treats

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 my super talented friend Janneke! Wasn't her creation today fabulous? She is always inspiring me! 💖

The theme for today's hop is Sweet Treats! I originally thought I would be creating some sort of cutsie treat package or candy wrapped decor for today's theme. As best of a plan that was, time slipped past me and I had to get creative. I hence decided to stamp some sweet treats for today's blog hop! 

So yep, as you can see, instead of decorating a sweet treat, my sweet treats were stamped on cardstock using the Stampin' Up! Sweets & Treats Stamp Set. Check out the images from this stamp set below! It's full of festive goodies that are sure to satisfy the palate. 

To add some vibrant color to the caramel candy apples on today's sweet project I pulled out my Stampin' Blend Markers. FYI if you have yet to try these coloring tools you are missing out. They are alcohol based, and to be honest the name says it all. They really do blend beautifully. Check out the Stampin' Blend video tutorial from Stampin' Up! for some tips, tricks, and ideas. Seriously! They are the best coloring medium! You feel like a pro even with the simplest of projects. 

As sweet as these apples are I am going to keep it simple today. I hope you enjoyed today's project! 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! His projects are always spectacular! I hope you are as inspired as I am by the Be Inspired Team Blog Hop! 💖

Stampin' Up! Clever Cats Stamp Set - #TGIFC338

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn, 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 the 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 anything and everything Halloween! October 31st is just around the corner, and this week's challenge was just what I needed to get me in the mood for some spooky festivities! I really wanted to create some cut treat packaging for today's theme, but I sadly had no treats in my house. I hence resorted to a Frightfully Cute Card! Have a peek at what I created! 

To be honest this set was not on my list until my BFF ordered it! She loves everything to do with Halloween, and she inspires me with her Spooktacular taste in stamp sets! 👻 Have a look at all of the images that are part of the Stampin' Up! Clever Cats Stamp Set below! 

Is this set not adorbs? I may be a wee bit more in love with it because I do love my kitty cat whom always loves to climb into any and every box that is laying around. Did you know that Stampin' Up! shipment boxes make great kitty cat houses? It's a great way to reuse and upcycle if you ask me! 

Thank you so much for visiting today! Feel free to leave a comment below! & Remember to check out the TGIF Challenges Site this week to join in the fun with us! I can't wait to see what everyone creates! 
Cheers & Happy Stamping!
