Stampin' Up! On The Farm Bundle - #TGIFC409

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 theme is "Layered Shapes"! Basically meaning incorporate some layered shapes into your work of art! I didn't go with the most basic shapes on today's project, but I did do a lot of layering so I figure that fits the theme? What do you think?  I hope you like it! 

The Stampin' Up! On The Farm Bundle is one bundle that I just adore!  The sweet little farm animal images and dies are perfect for one's spring Stampin' projects!  

I also used the Stampin' Up! Layering Diorama Dies on today's card. I feel like this large cloud-shaped die creates the perfect window to highlight the focal images on my project. You may also have noticed that I have used the hexagon shape throughout my work. I feel like the hexagons in the Stampin' Up! Hive 3D Embossing Folder give the same texture as chicken wire and hence I was drawn to this shape when choosing something that coordinated with the farm feel here today. 

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!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments 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 the talented Laura Mackie! Laura is from the UK and I have to say that I love the stunning creation she shared with us today! She is always giving me creative stamping ideas! 💖

The theme for today's hop is the Stampin' Up! Brights Collection! Stampin' Up! has an amazing array of products. The inks, cardstock, embellishments, and other fun stuff all coordinate. Colors are grouped into what traditionally is known as color families. The Brights Collection has to be my favorite of them all! I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with for today's bright hop! I am sure you will be inspired. 

I love how these fun colors make this card so cheery! Everything seems to pop on this one! After choosing my Brights Collection colors for today's project I peeked at my embellishment stash and the Stampin' Up! Glossy Dots Assortment was just what I needed to add some bling! 

The Charming Sentiments Bundle helped as well. What do you think? Have a peek at this bundle below. It has some great dies that coordinate with the many sentiments. 

I do hope to play with his bundle some more. The sayings in it are so versatile. There is a phrase to suite almost any occasion! One could create a bunch of cards with this bundle to have on hand for all of those special moments in life! 💖 

I hope that you enjoyed today's project! Up next in today's hop is Angela Meiritz-Reid! Angela is always inspiring me & I am sure she will blow you away! 💖
