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.

Stamp N’ Hop – All about Love

Posted on

February is the month of Love!

1 John 4:19…We love because He first loved us.
How amazing is this! God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life!

I can not talk about the month of love without talking about the love that God has for us. I love this sampler that was inspired by Ronda Wade in her Creating for Christ Facebook Page.

This Valentine paper is so beautiful! I printed the verses from the Creating for Christ page. I will be having a class with this sampler on Sunday, the 17th. I know it’s after Valentine’s Day but this reminder of God’s love will be hanging up year round at my house.

I also wanted to share a tool from our catalog that has been in there and I’ve owned but had only just recently used. They are the Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheets. Sticky sheets that you stick your cardstock on and run through the Big Shot so that all the thin die cuts are easy to adhere (like a sticker) to your page without getting glue everywhere! I heart them.

I die cut the hearts from whisper white, crumb cake and lovely lipstick cardstock and poked them out carefully so the hearts were easy to stick back in the spots that they go. And the backing of the adhesive sheet was easy to peel right off like in the picture below.


Not only did I use it in one of the squares in my sampler, but I also made two cards using the other two cut outs and extra hearts. I love how they turned out. Perfect to send to my mom and stepmom for Valentine’s Day. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day Stamp set and I stamped it in Lovely Lipstick.

Thank you for hopping along with us today. If you have any questions about my faith or my project, please contact me! I’d love to hear from you. All of the products are listed below. Next up is Rebecca-Jo Unwin.

Your BFF,
Jenn

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
