Global Stamping Friends – All Things Stitched

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends May Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. This month’s theme is all things stitched. We could use one of our many, many stitched dies, sew on our project or even do faux stitching.

Today I am using the downloadable images from Stampin’ Up! All the proceeds from these purchased images will go to support two specific organizations that are  helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to the pandemic.

I used the stitched rectangles to cut out the printed download and the two layers. I also used the new Ornate Garden designer series paper because #sharesunshine and this flower paper really represents the sunshine!

You can download the 15 pages of images yourself for $12 at the link below.

Up next is Marieke Bart. I can’t wait to see what she has stitched! The rest of the roll call is below. Hop along and be inspired!

Retiring In-Colors

Happy Saturday!

I needed to work on some Mother’s Day cards for some customers but wanted to use our retiring in-colors a few more times before they are no longer available. So then I decided to use everything retired on this card to make it a challenge to myself!

The stamp set I’ve used is called Tea Together and it has coordinating dies called Tea Time (which are discounted 60%!). This set is perfect for Mother’s Day cards and also a tea lover. I’ve linked everything I’ve used below. Right now, for every $30 spent using the Hostess Code: VPWSYTXR , I will be sending you a gift in the mail along with your Thanks you card.

Here is a list of everything retiring from the Annual Catalog
And here is a list of everything retiring from the Mini Catalog

in case you want to mark off your own catalogs.

I’ve been doing Facebook lives the past two days on my business page, BFF Stampers. Join me daily at 10 a.m. I’ll be using more retiring product.

Hope to see you there. Call me with any questions,
Your BFF,

Stamp ‘N Hop – CASEing from Pinterest

Welcome to April’s Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop! You are visiting Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers. I am excited about this month’s them which is CASEing from Pinterest! I love CASEing projects because everyone out there is so talented. To CASE means to Copy and Share Everything. I’m very humbled when people choose to CASE any of my projects. Sometimes it’s even fun to CASE something you’ve done yourself in the past. But this month’s theme is to CASE from Pinterest and wow, there are SO. MANY. OPTIONS!

I’ve seen all over Pinterest these beautiful cards inspired by Bruno Bertucci. Kylie (his wife) had him do a video to show us how the Scrappy Strip Technique is done. I had to try it.

Today is a dark and dreary rainy day so I’ve used shades of blue for my first card.

I also wanted to make a bright card so i used these colors. Aren’t they gorgeous!

This card is a LOT of fun and SO easy! I suggest you watch the video and try one yourself.

Thanks for hopping along with us today. Next up is Cheryl Taylor. I can’t wait to see what inspiration she found on Pinterest!

Global Stamping Friends – Twisted!

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends April Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. This months theme was fun and out of the box. We had to take an item and use it in a manner that was not intended. This was a little hard for me as I am very cut and paste in my crafting.

I decided to use my balloon punch to make Easter eggs since Easter is coming up soon. It’s the perfect shape if you cut off the tiny balloon end. I wanted them to look like colored eggs so I punched them from the It Starts with Art designer series paper.

I had made a scrapbook page with this same kind of design before with the eggs and thought I’d bring in back in case you missed it!

Thank you for hopping along with us today. Up next is Rachel Macleod.

Your BFF,
