Extra Ordinary Blog Hop – GSF

Posted on

Welcome to an extra edition of the Global Stamping Friends blog hop. I’m here to give you a sneak peek of what I did at OnStage and also show you a stamp set that I think many of you will want to get your hands on. It’s called Daisy Lane and it already has a coordinating punch that I own so I love that already. It will also have another punch to go with it to make gorgeous designs. Have I intrigued you?

I stamped the flowers in Calypso Coral and the stems in Mossy Meadow. Then I used my Wink of Stella to blend the inks to make them look colored in and to give it a little sparkle of course!
I’m very sad to say that this Wood Textures DSP is retiring. If it’s something you think you need (of course we all do!) then I suggest getting it as soon as you can because it’s only available while supplies last.
I used a couple other new products. Here’s a new label punch called Timeless Label that I got as a gift for attending CentreStage. I’ve added some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack. I love it!

Here are the make n’ takes we got to make at OnStage. It’s so fun getting to play with a few of the new products and bring the samples home to show you.

The brown card with the nest that says Hugs for you is a card that will be coming out of Shelli’s Paper Pumpkin for the month of May. Isn’t it beautiful?

Don’t you just love that Stampin’ Up! brought out a new stamp set that goes with a punch most of us already own? I hope you were inspired by my card today. The products that you can purchase today are linked down below. The rest will be available on June 4th unless you want to Join Team BFF and buy from the new catalog starting May 1st with a 20% discount! I love the benefits of being a demonstrator!

Thank you so much for joining us on this impromptu blog hop. Next up is Tricia. I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with!

Stamp N’ Hop – Let’s get Girly!

Posted on

Welcome to another round of the Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop! This month our theme is ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS! I’ve gotta say that girl cards are almost the only thing I make around here. A real challenge for me would be a Manly card. I can’t make one of those to save my life!

When this blog hop goes live I will be up in the air flying to Utah for OnStage. OnStage is Stampin’ Up!’s version of convention where all of us demonstators get together in remote locations around the globe and see and learn all new stuff! I am so excited! I will have lots of fun stuff to share with you when I get back. You can follow along on my Instagram page @bffstampers to see some sneak peeks!

Anyway….back to the blog hop…

My friend asked me to make some invitations for a Surprise Party she was having for her mom’s birthday. She said she likes purples and pinks. Perfectly girly in my opinion 🙂 What do you think?

I printed all the words.

Thank you so much for joining us this month. Next up is Pia Gerhardt. Hop along to everyone to get all the girly inspiration.

GSF Blog Hop – Neutrals

Posted on

Welcome to April’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles in the U.S. and our theme this month is Neutrals! It was hard coming up with a neutral project but I love what I have done! I challenge you to give it a try yourself this month.

I’m so glad Stampin’ Up! added color to the Neutrals palette. I am in love with the stamp set Vibrant Vases. I just love the two-tone effect it makes with the double stamp. No stamping off needed for the lighter color!

The colors I used here from the Neutrals were Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake. I white embossed the flowers and used our Watercolor pencils to color in the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by and hopping along with us this month. I hope you were inspired by my project. Up next is Lisa Henderson. Keep hopping along to see everyone that participated.
