Global Stamping Friends – Festive Celebrations

Posted on

Happy December!  December! Already!  Where has the year gone?

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop featuring Festive Celebrations!  These ladies never cease to amaze me with their creativity and the projects they come up with every month.

For my project, I’ve come up with a card and tag idea with a coordinating box.  I made it less feminine because it will be for my husband’s friend.  Coming up with manly ideas is very hard for me.  Do you struggle with that?

I coordinated them all using the Colorful Seasons Designer Series Pack.  The Christmas tree came from our timeless Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  It’s been around forever!

The Happy Christmas banner stamp is from a newer stamp set called Labels to Love.  You can find a list of everything I used down below.

These boxes are really easy to make.  They are very convenient for gift packaging year round, making them any size you need.

To make this box I used:
Thick Whisper White cardstock – 8×8 scored at 2 inches on all 4 sides.
Designer Series Paper – 6×6 scored at 1 inch on all sides.
Fold all the score lines. You will have 4 square corners on both pieces.  Cut one side to the line and adhere it together.  I like to use tear & tape so my box won’t dare to fall apart even with heavier items inside.

I CASE’d this card from a card in our Annual Catalog on Page 141 for the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge #156.  I love challenging myself to come up with something new while also making it easier by using something already done! Does that make sense!  LOL.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card and gift packaging idea today.  Thank you for hopping along.  Click on the NEXT arrow to check out the talented creations by Marieke Bart.  There is a Roll call of everyone hopping today below for your convenience.

Your BFF,

Jenn

Global Stamping Friends Bloghop – Color Challenge

Posted on

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends September Blog Hop where demonstrators from all over the world are making cards to inspire you.  I’m Jenn and I’m so glad you are here to join us for the color challenge AND today is a great day because the 2017 Holiday Catalog is now LIVE!

This month we are doing a color challenge and these colors just scream WINTER!  So I chose to play with a new set from the new catalog called Snowflake Sentiments on page 35.  And of course, they have a coordinating set of thinlits called Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies that you have got to have to go with this set.

I absolutely love the font in this set.  I also love these intricate snowflakes.  Aren’t they pretty?  And I had to cut them from the white glimmer paper because snowflakes have to shimmer in my opinion!

I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far.  Click on the NEXT arrow to see what Courtenay Heuston is going to wow us with.  Her projects are always so inspirational.  There is also a list below of everyone in the hop.  Happy Hopping!

Your BFF,

Global Stamping Friends – One Year Anniversary Blog Hop

Posted on

Hi BFF’s!!

Can you believe that we have all been hopping together on the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop for one whole year already!  It doesn’t seem that long.  I’m starting to realize that the older I get, the faster time goes.  It’s slipping by.  I’ve been feeling kind of sentimental lately.  However, today is a day of celebration!  A celebration of friendships made over the course of a year because of a common passion of papercrafting.

Stampin’ Up!’s statement of the heart is ‘To Love what we do and Share what we love as we help other Enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…In this we make a difference’.

I believe we have done this globally by sharing this blog hop together.  I’ve made friends from all over the world!  I would have never done that if I hadn’t started stamping with this company.

So my card is a friendship card.  I want to say THANK YOU to all my new friends I’ve made over the last year and to all my customers who encourage me everyday to keep sharing what I love.

I’ve used the Coffee Cafe stamp set because I love the friendship sentiment in it.  And if you know me, you know I absolutely LOVE coffee!  Everyone loves their coffee made differently, from straight black (that’s me!) to barely brown at all because it’s so flavored up.  I believe all of us are like coffee, completely different in our styles or flavors of crafting but with the same base, Stampin’ Up!  

I used the glossy white cardstock to watercolor my frappacino.  This was my first time using it and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it dried.  I love the look it gave my ‘plastic’ cup.  It’s hard to see in the photo.

Thank you for hopping along with me today.  Click the NEXT button to visit the creative Rachel.

Jenn
