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,

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

Stamp N’ Hop – Masculine

Posted on

Welcome back to another Stamp ‘N Hop with demonstrators from all over the world showcasing MASCULINE products this month.

I have to admit, I struggle with the masculine side of crafting.  I love bling, ribbon and flowers.  I’ve been wanting to make a card for my husband to say thank you for working so hard for us everyday.  He loves everything water from fishing to surfing so today I am making a project using the stamp set, Waterfront.  I also used the Hardwood background stamp to get some woodgrain look on the card.  I got my inspiration for this card from a fabulous Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Kelly Kent.

I broke the fibers in a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock to make it look crumpled or “rugged”.  I stamped off the Tranquil Tide ink to make the water a lighter color.  I love Tranquil Tide because of the blue-green look and it can be used either way.  A list of supplies is down below.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please hop along to the rest of the talented crafters.  Up next is Laura Mackie.
