SUO Challenge #172

Posted on

I entered this challenge because the theme is Sympathy and Caring and I have been meaning to make a card for my Grandmother because last week my Grandpa passed away. He had been sick and it was expected but it still leaves a hole in us, doesn’t it?

My Grandmother is not big on attention or sympathy for herself so my card is more just a, I love you and I’m here for you all the time type card. I love her so much and I really miss my Grandpa already. I don’t share a lot of personal stuff so excuse me this time around.

I hope you get inspiration from my card. It’s using one of my favorite colors that is retiring this year and I’m kinda sad about it, Mint Macaron.

Here is a link to the retiring list.  It is *While Supplies Last* so don’t wait too long!  The new Catalog comes out on June 1st.

Thanks for stopping by,

Your BFF,

Jenn

 


Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

Posted on

 

I’m excited that it’s time once again for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  It runs the first Friday of the month and the projects that you see are from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the globe using a common theme.

This month our theme is: OUR FAVORITE BUNDLE!

I had such a hard time choosing this time around because I have a few favorites right now.  But the one that is most fun to use currently is the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  This dragonfly set makes the most beautiful cards and there are so many different ways you can stamp the dragonfly or cut the dies.  Here are a few examples of cards I’ve made using this set:

Tomorrow I am attending OnStage Local here in San Diego and demonstrators from all over are getting sneak peeks of the new Annual Catalog that comes out in June.  I’m so excited to see the new bundles that will be available.  They’ve already given us some peeks at new In-Colors 2017-2019.  Hint: They are in the OnStage letters! SShhhh…

So pretty!  And one suite called Eastern Palace.  Amazing things done with that bundle already!

Don’t forget to sign up for Paper Pumpkin before April 10th to receive the FREE gift Sara has included in this anniversary box!  Sara designed it herself and you won’t want to miss out on all the goodness. Click on the photo below to sign up!  “Bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” is how Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass described the kit she designed for the April Paper Pumpkin.

I hope you get some inspiration from these dragonflies.  Up next is the amazing Marieke Bart with her favorite bundle.  If you need to go back, click previous to see Angélique Stempelkeuken.  Thanks for hopping with us!

Global Blog Hop #7: Sketch Challenge!

Posted on

Welcome to another month of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  This month we’ve got a sketch challenge!  Here’s the sketch:

Here’s what I made:

It’s my dad’s birthday today, so I had made this card for him using the sketch.  I really like the stamp set, Guy Greetings because it sums up my dad perfectly.  He was always working on a car or fixing things around the house.  Yes, he really did teach me, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey!  And I’ve since taught my kids!   The argyle print in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack is the perfect addition to a masculine card, in my opinion.  Love you DAD!

What can you create using this sketch? Leave a comment, along with a link to your blog and I’ll come check it out!

Tomorrow is my monthly Stamp Camp.  RSVP on the Event page over on the BFF Stampers facebook page if you’d like to join us.  This is the last month to enter to win the April Stamp Camp for FREE!  Just bring a new friend and you and your friend will get an entry into the raffle!

Shop my Stampin’ Up! store HERE and don’t forget to use Hostess Code: 3AGXYPCB and you will receive a surprise in the mail from me!

Don’t forget!  SALE-A-BRATION is still in full swing!  Check out the brochure of all the FREE exclusive items you can only get with a $50 purchase!  They’ve even added some new stuff!
