Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Miss You

Hi there! 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 Dijkstra - de Jong! Wasn't her creation today fabulous? She is always inspiring me! πŸ’–


The theme for today's hop is Good Bye or Miss You! As the dawn of a new Stampin' Up! Catalogue draws near, there are many retiring Stampin' Products that we must say farewell to. I have used a stamp from one of my favorite retiring sets on today's card. Can you guess which stamp it is? If you aren't too sure, have a look at the supply list at the end of this post and you should be able to solve the mystery! My hint is I also used this stamp set in my previous blog post. Okay, I am sure I gave it away now. πŸ˜‚ Hope I didn't ruin your fun! 


One thing that I realized when creating a project for today's hop was how few "Good Bye" or "Miss You" stamps that I actually own. The miss you stamp I ended up using was this sweet "I miss your face." sentiment stamp from the Stampin' Up! Hello Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. The stamps in the set are full of fun shapes and patterns, I wanted to create a card that really went with this saying. Hence why I combined a variety of Stampin' Up! products to create today's card. Check out the images in the Stampin' Up! Hello Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set below! 


I of course also used 2 other stamp sets in addition, a total of 4 stamp sets for 1 card! Why keep it simple? The sets and card did come together quite simply though, despite using so many products. Stampin' Up! products are made to coordinate, allowing my imagination to run wild with ease. 


Here is a close up of today's project. I created the soft clouds in the background by using the cloud shaped dies from the Stampin' Up! Rainbow of Happiness Bundle. After cutting them out I used the negative piece left over as a mask. I then lightly sponged some Coastal Cabana Ink with my Stampin' Up! Blending Brush. The soft cloudy background turned out just how I envisioned. What do you think?


I hope that you enjoyed today's project!  Up next in today's hop is Brian King! Brian is always inspiring me with his art! I am so grateful to be hopping with him today! I am sure he will blow you away! πŸ’–

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Easter Friends

Hi there! 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 Aussie friend Louise Sharp! Wasn't her creation today fabulous? She is always inspiring me! πŸ’–


The theme for today's hop is "Stepping Into Spring"! I decided to create a cute Easter themed card for today's hop! The Stampin' Up! Easter Friends Stamp Set is beyond adorable if you ask me! I hope you are inspired today! I know the Be Inspired Design Team has some awesome works of art to share with you! πŸ’– 


I love how today's card turned out, and as much as I wish I could take all the credit, this lil chick stamp is what makes me fall in love.😍  When you have stamps that are designed by the most amazing artists, creating a stunning project is pretty easy. So thank you to Stampin' Up! Have a look at the rest of the images that are part of this set below. With Easter around the corner, this stamp set will help you with all of your springtime creative endeavors! 


On today's card I also displayed my most favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) Ever! This DSP is retiring soon, so if you love it as much as I do make sure to host a party, or place a minimum order, to get yours for FREE! 


I will miss having the Stampin' Up! Pattern Party DSP around, but I have stocked up on it for personal use so I think I can manage. πŸ˜‰


I hope that you enjoyed today's project!  Up next in today's hop is Brian King! Brian is always inspiring me with his art! I am so grateful to be hopping with him today! I am sure he will blow you away! πŸ’–

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! Artfully Layered Bundle

Hi there! 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 Tanya Rees! Wasn't her creation today fabulous? She is always inspiring me! πŸ’–


The theme for today's hop is anything and everything from the current Stampin' Up! Mini-Catalogue! This catty is full of some amazing products. One of my favorite's is the Stampin' Up! Artfully Layered Bundle! Hence why I chose to feature it today!    πŸ’– 


This suite of products is so gorgeous! It's no wonder this bundle has the term "layer" in it's name. The elements in this collection of products are so easy to layer over one another. It's kind of like layering your favorite comfy wardrobe pieces on a cold (or maybe even balmy) day, but instead you are layering paper elements! When you layer such pretty elements you are bound to create a simple yet beautiful masterpiece! Its a no fail! #WIN!


Here is a close up of today's card! Are those Faux Sea Glass Shapes not the most perfect addition to this card? I must be ordering some more of those soon. I am also in love with the Stampin' Up! Layering Designs Vellum! If you love these products as much as I do feel free to check out my online store by clicking the "Shop" button at the end of today's post. You won't be disappointed. 


I hope that you enjoyed today's project!  Up next in today's hop is Brian King! Brian is always inspiring me with his art! I am so grateful to be hopping with him today! πŸ’–
