Colour Combo Blog Hop – Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede


Welcome to this month’s Colour Combo Blog Hop. This is my first time participating and it was so challenging! You might be hopping over here from Anastasia’s blog if you are following along and now you are visiting Jenn Charles.

I’m going to take you through my process of how I mixed and matched these 3 colors together. I started with pattern paper first. There are so many gorgeous designer series paper in the new Holiday Catalog. The one I chose to use today is the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP. What makes it so special is the copper foil and gold foil on some of the designs. I love autumn colors.

I knew when I saw this paper that I had to use that mint macaron piece for this color challenge.

Next up was stamp set to pick with it and then it was just a matter of which order to layer all the colors. Should I use a soft suede background? What color should the birds be, etc. Then it all just came together! I really like the outcome.

Thank you for hopping along with us. I hope you’ve been inspired to step out of your comfort zone and mix up some colors!

Next up is Tricia Butts. I can’t wait to see what she has made using these colors.
See you soon,
Your BFF,

Stamp N’ Hop – Favorite Die Cut Bundle

Welcome to the monthly Stamp N’ Blog Hop. This month’s theme is all about our favorite bundles! You have just arrived from Stacey Marsh’s blog if you are hopping along in order. You are currently visiting Jenn Charles from the USA.

I’ve already posted a blog today regarding my favorite punch bundle so this time around I decided to go with my favorite die bundle. I have a couple favorites in this year’s annual catalog. The sunflowers for example are to die for but the one that I’ve been playing with the most lately is the Nothing’s Better Than bundle. You can mix and match the sayings to make it so much more fun!

This bundle is full of things I can’t live without. Between coffee, cookies, chocolate and cocktails, there is sure to be one thing in this set that is a must-have in your quarantine arsenal. I just realized all of these addictions start with the letter “C”…lol. Anyway, on to my card:

As you can see, the stamps have an outlined image and also a double step stamp image that fills in the outline so that you don’t have to color. Even the lime has a double step stamp but I colored mine in this time.

This is my first time cutting up the the Playing with Patterns designer series paper and it is so versatile. It has so many different patterns that you really can coordinate it with anything. I also used the Foam Adhesive Sheets to give the glittered word Cocktails some lift. I love them! They cut so easily on the die cut machine. I will definitely be using these more often. And speaking of the word cocktails, have you seen the beautiful Rainbow Glimmer paper? It’s a must-have!

I hope you got some inspiration from these cocktails! Mine are non-alcoholic but they are still just as refreshing. For a list of everything used on today’s card, please scroll down.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today. Up next is Sandra Herzog. I’m sure she picked a bundle that I must have! P.S. My addiction is coffee but I wanted to change it up to something more colorful…hahaha.

See you soon,

Global Stamping Friends – Favorite Punch Bundle

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. If you are following along the list of participant then you have just come from Anastasia’s Blog. You are now visiting Jenn Charles. This month’s theme is favorite bundle. I wanted to choose a punch bundle but there are quite a few that I love.

I finally settled on the Whale Done bundle because not only do I love the stamp and punch but I love the WHOLE suite! The papers are the cutest! I think the embossing folder is my absolute favorite at the moment.

I used a little bit of everything from the suite. The big whale is stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out but the baby whale is fussy cut straight from the designer series paper. You can also punch the big whales from the paper using the punch. They fit perfectly!

Thanks for joining along with us this month. I hope you were inspired to get this awesome suite of products. These whales and turtles are just so cute! There is a list down below of everything I used on this card today.

Thanks are in order!

Hi Friends. So today I am participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Hop. The fun thing about participating in this blog hop is that people vote on your project and you can be a winner to participate in another blog hop! Who doesn’t love a little competition? And when people vote and say they like your project, it makes you happy.

Today’s theme is thank you and I have some serious thank you’s going out to everyone who ordered from me in July and earned a Bonus Day coupon to spend anywhere including the Mini Holiday Catalog. The Catalog goes live tomorrow and it is awesome.

Using Celebrate Sunflowers, I have made this fun thank you card for my customers.

Just Jade Cardstock: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for cardbase
4 1/4 x 3
Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4 embossed with Brick embossing folder
3 7/8 x 2 5/8
Bumblebee Cardstock: 4 x 2 3/4
In-Color DSP: 1/2 x 2 3/4

Fold the Cinnamon Cider card base in half and adhere the brick embossed Very Vanilla cs onto the top. Stamp the Sunflowers in Bumblebee and the leaves in Cinnamon Cider onto the smaller very vanilla piece. Tap the Cinnamon Cider ink pad onto an acrylic block and use a watercolor pen to pick up some of the ink from the block and flick it onto the piece lightly. Set aside to dry. Using a post it note, block off the part of the sentiment you do not want showing and stamp the thanks in Cinnamon Cider on the small strip of vanilla. Tap the edges into the ink to make an ink border. Cut a diagonal from the corner of the DSP and the corner of the small sentiment and layer them off set together. Adhere all the layers to the center front of the card. Add a bow.

Thank you for stopping in today and checking out my project. If you’d like to check out all the projects and vote for your favorites, follow this link.

Happy Voting,

Share and Enjoy !
