Remarkably Created Blog Hop – Mix & Match Stampin’ Up!

Posted on

Welcome to another round of the Remarkably Creative Blog Tour.  The theme for the month is Mix & Match!  The objective is to show you just how compatible our mini catalogs are with our main annual catalog.  You are at Jenn Charles – BFF Stampers and if you’d like to hop around, the entire list of participants are listed below.  Thank you for joining us today.

I must admit, I had a hard time finding stepping out of my comfort zone to mix and match my sets.  I learned during this challenge that I am definitely a “keep your suites together” type of gal.  With the exception of sentiments, I rarely mix my sets together.  However, we have so much variety to offer in our catalogs that you are bound to find something that works just for you!

My first card features my absolute favorite designer series paper, Petal Passion along with my favorite In-Color this year, Berry Burst. The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set.  These products are both featured in the Petal Passion Suite.  I pulled out the Oh, So Eclectic stamp set and thinlit dies and it all fell together perfectly.

I think that every color matches with this paper and you just can’t go wrong!  Of course I had to have Silver Glimmer Paper because I have to have bling!  I also embossed a few spots on the flowers with silver embossing powder just to add more glimmer.

After I got started, I couldn’t stop!  I pulled out the Waterfront Stamp Set to make some water to make a little lakeside scene to reflect Spring.  The chair, branch, flowers and sentiment all come from the Colorful Seasons Bundle.

The Waterfront Stamp Set is so versatile to make all different kinds of scenes depending on the colors you use.  I’ve used Soft Sky and Marina Mist for the water.  My flowers are Sweet Sugarplum and my chair is cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Start mixing and matching your stamp sets and papers.  You will come up with some unique and fun projects.

Just a reminder, you are with Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers.  Click on the next name below mine to continue getting ideas.  All of the products used today are at the bottom of the post.

Thanks for hopping by,
Your BFF,

Global Stamping Friends – All about LOVE!

Posted on

Welcome to February Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  You are here at Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  There are so many fun creations this month for our theme: LOVE!  So fitting for the month of February.

I’ve decided to go with a scrapbook page today to showcase the love between my twin daughters.  I’m feeling very nostalgic lately because they turned 17 last month and I’m realizing they won’t be here much longer.  They will be off to college and their own lives soon.

  Here you can see a little peek of my hidden journaling.  I like to hide my journaling because I don’t like my handwriting so much.

I’ve used the Petal Palette Designer Series Paper, Memories & More cards and die cuts.  The colors are black, white, blushing bride, and silver glimmer.  I’ve also stamped in Smoky Slate on the heart.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project.  Hop along and see the rest of the Friends from all over the World.  Up next is Karie Beglau.  There’s a full list of everyone below if you’d like to hop around randomly!

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Valentines!!!

Posted on

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I’m not very big on Valentine’s Day.  I’m not exactly sure why except that I’ve never been a mushy gushy show-your-love type of gal.  I married a man who is exactly like me.  Usually hubby will bring home a flower and a card for each of our daughters (we have 3) and a manly (ninja turtles or whatever is in style that year) box of candy for our son.  I get flowers and a card.  It’s all very ritualistic.  I think I’d rather him surprise me with some flowers on a random day, because unfortunately, I have come to expect to receive something and then it loses it’s meaning, doesn’t it?  I’m sure I’m overthinking it all.

So anywho, on to my card.  I’m still using the Petal Palette set.  I absolutely love it.  I’ve made a card showcasing my love for this set.  HAHA.  Just kidding.  I will probably give this card to my hubby on Valentine’s Day, because it’s expected.

The colors I used were Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Black and White.

I hope you like my card and are inspired with a non-Valentiney Valentine’s Day card.

International Highlights December Winners Blog Hop – Love Again!

Posted on

I am so honored to announce that I submitted a card into Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights for November and won top 10!  The link to that blog post is HERE. The reward is a special hop with just the top 10 submissions using the same theme: Love.

So today I’ve made a card using the Merry Cafe stamp set along with the Coffee Cafe set to make a gift card holder for a friend of mine.  We both LOVE Starbucks and each other!

I embossed the sentiment and the heart using gold embossing powder. I love all the bling on this card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Coffee Break designer series paper is perfect with these little hearts to show my affection (for coffee) and my friend.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Thank you so much for voting for me so I can be in this special hop.  Follow along in the lineup below and see what the other talented winners made.

Your BFF,

Jenn
