Just when I thought I’d gotten all the free stuff I wanted out of the Sale-A-Bration catalog, Stampin’ Up! comes out with another 3 items I have to get my hands on! Available only from February 21-March 31, hurry and get these before they sell out! Look at this glimmer paper! So beautiful!
And this reverse words stamp, perfect for the watercolor look without me messing everything up! Lol.
These medallions remind me of a stamp set I had back in the day. So many possibilities!
To get any of these items for FREE, email me your order or use hostess code: 3AGXYPCB
Hi and Welcome to the BFF Stampers blog. I’m so excited to be participating in our 6th Blog Hop. All of these crafters are so talented and I’m blessed to be united with them.
Today on our blog hop we have a color challenge! I hope you are inspired by the three colors we have chosen. The colors are So Saffron, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi. These colors are really beautiful together.
When I do a color challenge, I like to get out all the cardstock and ink of the colors that I have. I play around and stamp different images but the thing that is in right now is watercoloring! I have to admit, I am absolutely no good at watercoloring. I’ve tried all the different techniques and I just can’t get it right. So for this card, I pulled out my trustworthy Watercolor Wash background stamp. You can’t go wrong with a built in water color look.
Doesn’t that black really make the colors pop? I used my Aqua Painter and dampened the whole stamp first, then I squeezed a little ink onto the lid of the stamp pad and used my aqua painter to paint the layers onto the stamp. Then stamped it onto watercolor paper. And it’s watercolored. And I liked it! And yes, I’m pleasantly surprised!
I think these dragonflies might be my favorite set from the new catalog. The background paper I used in the photo is called Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. It is a Sale-A-Bration product that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase. It’s 12 sheets of black and white scrapbook paper, perfect for coloring! What is your favorite product from the new catalogs?
This Saturday, Feb. 4th I’m having the Occasions Kick Off Stamp Camp. We will be making these cards plus a surprise Valentine Card and demoing some fun product. We might even get to color some of that paper from above with the new Watercolor Pencils! It starts at 6 p.m. at Sew Easy Studio here in Ramona. Check out the Facebook Page at BFF Stampers and click on Events. Don’t forget your adhesive and paper snips.
Hi BFF’s!!! I’m so happy to get back into a schedule after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s. I pray that all of you and your families had a safe and happy New Year and that you all got the love you wanted for Christmas 🙂
So Phew! We’re back and do we have some exciting news for you! Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration is available to look at and buy from! Squeal!

Such a variety! The blog hop today is showcasing some of the items from the new catalog, so here goes!
My absolute favorite is the balloon pop up dies. I just used them to make invitations for a birthday party! They were so fun and and easy way to add something spectacular.
Here is the video straight from Stampin’ Up! showing you exactly how to use the dies.
There are so many fabulous stamps, designer series paper and adorable little embellishments, that you will not have a problem finding $50 worth of stuff to buy. And for every $50 you spend in product, you receive something free from the Sale-A-Bration brochure! You can not buy the product from the SAB, you’ve got to earn it! So come check out the catalog and let me know what’s on your wish list! If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, then I’d love to send you a catalog. Just contact me and let me know!
And this card is made from a stamp set called Window Shopping, but the stamp set is not the best part! The best part is the Window Box Thinlet Die that you can buy to go with it! I’ll add the video below.
We went to a meeting with our team and got some adorable cards using their pre-orders also.

I finally found some time to do a Mojo Monday Sketch. This one is perfect for a Christmas card. It went together fast because I used a coordinating designer series paper pack called This Christmas from Stampin’ Up! I love this paper. Here’s the sketch:
And here’s my take:
What I like most about sketch challenges is that you can flip the sketch around, replace embellishments with other embellishments and use any colors you want! So everyone’s ideas are so different! Click on the sketch and take a look at the Mojo Monday blog and all of the ideas and then make a card and link it to their blog! This weeks challenge can win a prize! Good luck!
