Stampin' Up! Soft Pastels Assortment - #TGIFC344

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 a product spotlight featuring the Stampin' Up! Soft Pastels! These pastels are one of those products that I just don't seem to pull out enough. This week's theme was the perfect excuse for me to play with them for the first time. 


I have been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and fan since the dawn of this millennium. Stampin' Up! used to have Stampin' Pastels way back in the day, and this newer product version of an old time favorite got me pretty excited when I saw them! There are many techniques you can do with them. For today's card I took my Coastal Cabana colored pastel and scribbled on a scrap piece of paper. I then took my Stampin' Up!  Sponge Dauber and rubbed it in the chalky residue. The next step was to run the sponge dauber over my paper igloo that I created using the Stampin' Up! Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and the Classic Cloche Dies. By Sponging the chalk pastel over the textured cardstock it really makes the igloo pop! I am pretty happy with how this card turned out! 


If you have yet to purchase the Stampin' Up! Soft Pastels Assortment you should really consider them. They are a very affordable addition to your crafty collection and there is so much more that one can do with them!

Stampin' Up! Classic Cloche Bundle - #TGIFC343

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 Place Cards and Table Settings! With American Thanksgiving this weekend I am sure many will be filling their tables and bellies with home made goodies. There are some great table decor ideas over at the TGIF Challenges site this week, so pop on over if you are looking for some festive inspiration. Here in Canada we are long past the time of Thanksgiving. Saying that I am always grateful. Since Christmas is just around the corner I decided to create a pretty candle wrap that one could use as a focal point for this upcoming holiday season. 


This was actually quite easy to create using of course some of my favorite Stampin' Up!  products. The Stampin' Up! Classic Cloche Bundle pictured below is so versatile. Today's project is my first creation I have made with this bundle of products. I really need to stamp with it some more before the Christmas season has passed us and we are onto the next big celebration! 


This is an amazing bundle of products! Don't you think? What are some of your favorite Stampin' Up! products from this years winter mini catalogue? I would love to see what you create with your favorites!
