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,
Jenn

Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop

Posted on

Wow Wow Wow!  It’s finally here!  The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are FINALLY here!!!  I’m so excited to be a part of this hop with these amazing, talented demonstrators.  We’ve got a fantastic assortment of creativity to share with you.  I’m praying that after you finish hopping through, you will be just as excited as I am about all the wonderfully exclusive things YOU can earn for FREE with a $50 order starting tomorrow!

I’ve got a couple Sale-A-Bration items myself that I was able to get early as a perk of being a demonstrator.  My most favoritest (is that even a word?) of them all is a stamp set called Epic Celebrations.  For those of you that don’t know, I have two teenage daughters in my home.  They always need a card and all of mine are either too flowery or too plain.  Every once in a while they will really like a card.  This new stamp set is perfect for teenage b-day cards.  Or just the occasional, hey, I have to give you a card because my mom said, card. It’s cool and that makes me cool.  HA!

Introducing Epic Celebrations:

Take note of the beautiful colors of that scrapbook paper behind the stamp set.  That is also something you can earn for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, it’s called the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper.

Here’s what I’ve come up with using these 2 products together.

This turquoise glimmer paper is from the Occasions Catalog.  It matches perfectly with Bermuda Bay colored designer series paper.  I colored the converse shoes with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  I love these markers!

I hope you fall in love with this stamp set like I did.  Hop along and check out all the fun ideas using the Sale-A-Bration items. Scroll to the bottom for upcoming classes and ways to earn even MORE FREE stuff!


Need a Catalog?  If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog and get you hooked on papercrafting!  Contact me and I’ll send you out the catalog with a surprise!

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
