Global Stamping Friends – Color Feature

Posted on

Hi and Welcome back to another month of awesome projects made by demonstrators from around the world. You are visiting me, Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers.  This month we thought we’d challenge ourselves with a color feature.  I really liked this idea and will be featuring a color monthly.  This month for the Global Stamping Friends hop we decided on the color Call Me Clover.  I’ve fallen in love with this color while using it these past couple days.  It is a beautiful bright green. We were allowed to also use black & white in our designs.

For both of my cards I used the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.  I love the bold prints on the back but it also has some black and white designs on the opposite side.  And I love the 1/8″ size of the ribbon.  It’s my favorite size as you will also see in the next card. There is a list of all the products I used in these two cards down below.

In this card I used the 1/8″ Whisper White ribbon.  I told you I loved that size ribbon.  The pop of Call Me Clover adds so much to this card.  This stamp and die cuts are from the Stitched All Around Bundle.

I hope you found some inspiration to try this bold In-Color.  Next up in the blog is Amanda Farlinger.  Click on the arrow below to go to her blog.  Scroll to the bottom on the page if you’d like to see a list of everyone in the hop.

Thanks for stopping by,
Your BFF,
Jenn

Hi Friends!  Welcome to another round of the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop.  You are visiting me, Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  Next up is Mo Rootes.  This month’s theme is favorite designer series paper and I know the one I chose is going to be popular!

I’ve chosen the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  It has beautiful pearl accents throughout the pack and you get 24 sheets of thick double sided paper.  The project I’ve made is a box with a couple cards all made with one sheet of DSP.

Here are the dimensions to make the box:

DSP – 11 1/2″ x 8″

Score along the long side at – 3/4″, 5 3/8″, 6 1/8″ and 10 3/4″

Score along the short side at – 3/4″ and 7 1/4″

You will have a 4″ x 12″ strip of DSP left over.  Cut it to make 2 4″ x 5 1/2″ pieces for the card fronts.

Thank you for hopping by to check out my project today.

Global Stamping Friends July Blog Hop – Home Decor

Posted on

Welcome to another month full of fun projects made from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world.  Right now you are visiting me, Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  For July’s theme, we are making Home Decor items.  Today it is supposed to be 111° F!  That is very hot for my little town.  So we are at the beach!  I made a sign for my craft area that depicts my mood today.  I’m going to be sitting at the beach with my feet in the sand, RELAXING!

I am so glad that Mint Macaron has come back.  It goes perfectly with Smoky Slate and Bermuda Bay.  I got this inspiration from my shower curtain.  I’ve been wanting to make this for awhile now and this blog hop was just the push I needed to take the time to figure out how to do these chevrons.

I sponged all the pieces in Crumb Cake and used a Crumb Cake piece of cardstock for my backing.  The word is cut from the Large Letter Framelits in Crumb Cake and sponged also.  The little sand dollars are cut from the new Under the Sea Framelit Dies.

I hope you enjoyed my Home Decor item.  I know I do!  It’s so pretty!  These are my favorite colors for summer.

Next up is Sarah.  I know she is really going to WOW you with what she has created.  Below is a list of everyone in the hop.

Thanks for stopping by,
Your BFF,
Jenn

New Catalog goes LIVE today!!!!

Posted on

Today is the DAY!! The 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is LIVE!!!  If you have not received your catalog yet and do not have a demonstrator, contact me!  I will get you a catalog.  In my opinion, this is the best catalog yet!

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends June Bloghop.  You are visiting Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  Our theme this month is anything new!  Of course it is!  Today is the kick-off of the New Catalog!  I’m very excited if you can’t tell.

All the cards I make are the normal size.  They might be a fancy fold or a note card size or 3×3, as long as we sell the base, I’ll make the size.  The card I’m making today is from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack.  Stampin’ Up! has come out with card bases and envelopes that fit the 4×6 or 3×4 cards in the Memories & More Packs.  I’m so excited about that!  Here is my sample of a 4×6 card base using those cards.  This card has no ink or stamping on it!  The Memories & More card packs make it so easy to make a quick card.

Don’t you love these colors?  They are returning In-Colors, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss.  So pretty!

I used a new punch called the Detailed Trio Punch and I cut the detailed laser cut flower from the aptly named Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper 🙂  It is white on one side and vanilla on the other.  It comes with 4 pieces of each of these 2 designs.

I hope you liked my card and visit all the people in the hop to see brand new products from the new catalog!

Up next is Karie Beglau.  I know she will have something amazing for you to see!

I’m on my way to our church retreat today for the weekend and it’s all about Choosing JOY!

John 15:11 – “These things I have spoken to you, that MY JOY may remain in you, and your Joy may be full”

Choose Joy!

Your BFF,
Jenn
