Stampin' Up! International Project Highlights!

     Hi everyone! Welcome to our International Project Highlights share, using current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs to see a close up of our projects. You can see the gallery list below, this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost. You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander's blog in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
     Today's card is one that I created using the Christmas Pines stamp set from Stampin' Up! I combined it with the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder, as well as the adorable Mini Pinecone embellishments that are part of the current Stampin' Up! holiday selection. With a little embossing and watercolouring this card comes together quickly.  The copper accents add that extra bit of shine that make this card beautiful! Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about today's project!

     Thanks for visiting my blog today! There are so many amazing ideas and lots of inspiration, so be sure to check out the gallery at the end of this post. We know that you will love our gallery of projects made from Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators around the world! Also, if you are in the Calgary area and are looking for a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd be happy to help you out. Feel free to click on my contact details at the top of this page for more information.

Bow Builder Punch Meets Pinecones & Presents DSP

     Well hi again! Here I am on day two of sharing a wee bit of Christmas with you all. Today's card is rather simple, however it still has that wow factor thanks to Stampin Up's bow builder punch. I'm not gonna lie, when I first saw this lovely bow patterned paper (that is part of the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper Pack from Stampin' Up) I thought OMG!!! I need to pair that with my bow builder punch! So the two unite, and a simply easy card becomes a wow card with the ease of a punch! No pun intended! I have to share with you a video tutorial that displays exactly how quick and easy it is to make a bow using this tool. Check it out below!
     Did I say easy? Ah yep!!! Anyone can whip up a few quick cards, or embellishments for those special gifts with this lil beast! I also have to share with you a few other ideas from the Stampin' Up site that display the awesome patterns included in the paper pack that I have used on today's card.
     The possibilities are truly endless! As mentioned in my post from yesterday, today's card will be one that we are making at my Stampin' Up! Christmas Card Making Night here in my SW Calgary home on October 25th. If you are interested in the details, just click on the "Classes" tab at the top of this post.

     Thanks again for stopping by,

Father Christmas Card - Stampin' Up! CASED Card

     Hi everyone, I hope that all of my Canadian friends enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving this past weekend! Our family enjoyed a couple of delicious homemade family dinners. We were very cozy in our homes (I say homes because we spent time at our home, and both of our parents homes this weekend). Here in Calgary we were greeted by a lovely snowfall! I have to say that all of that white stuff made it that much cozier of a weekend! Since we were all snuggled up inside I figured hey ... why not really get into the spirit of winter and make some Christmas cards? I had just received my 1st shipment of stamps from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalogue the week prior. What better time to get in the mood for Christmas than when it's dumping snow, and we are feeling trapped indoors, and I have new stamps waiting to be inked up?  
     The card I'm sharing with you today is actually one that I copied (also known as CASED - Copy And Share Everything) straight from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalogue. Sometimes it's just easier to keep it simple for oneself, rather than reinventing the wheel. The Stampin' Up catalogues are full of ideas and inspiration for all, making it easy-oh-peasy to whip up a gorgeous card! This card is one of many that we will be creating at my Christmas Card making night in a couple of weeks. If you are interested in attending just click on the "classes" tab at the top of this post for all of the details. I'd love for you to join us! Or if you wish to host your own Christmas card class at your place, feel free to contact me and we can arrange a date.

     I'll be posting pictures of the other cards that we'll be making that night on my blog in the coming days, so stay tuned!

     Thanks for stopping by & may your October merry but not so white!
