Stamp N’ Hop Favorite New Designer Series Paper

Posted on

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.

Next up is Mo Rootes.  I know she will have a fabulous project for you.  If you want to skip ahead, a list of all the participants is below.

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,

Global Stamping Friends – Sketch Challenge!

Posted on

May the 4th be with you!  Just throwing that out there for some of my friends.  You know who you are!!! 😉

Hi BFF’s!  Doesn’t it feel like this year is just flying by?  It’s almost summertime!  I know in some areas it’s still snowing.  If that is you, I am very sorry.  What a winter it has been for some places around the world, but I can’t complain much here in San Diego, California.

Welcome to another blog hop with the Global Stamping Friends where demonstrators from all around the world are showcasing awesome Stampin’ Up! products!  This month we are working with a sketch.  I love sketch challenges.

Here is the sketch we are working with and here is what I came up with using some new, some retiring and some current products.  I really stuck to the sketch with the circle and stripes and accents.  I added some dimension with the Sparkle embossing folder.

I fell in love with this designer series paper called Painted With Love that is only available while supplies last.  The gold accents really caught my eye.  So I decided to stamp the circle and the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossing in Gold.  This circle came from a brand new not-yet-released stamp set called Swirly Frames.  It coordinates with the Circle and Square Framelits.  It will be available in the new catalog on June 1st so you’re getting a sneak peek. 🙂

I used a current bundle that will be carrying over into the new catalog.  It’s called Colorful Seasons.  The sentiment and the flowers are from this bundle.  The colors I used were Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride and Rich Razzleberry.

I added a thin strip of the designer series paper inside the card also to finish it off. 🙂

I hope you liked my card. Next up is Tricia.  I know you will enjoy what she has come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.  Below is a list of everything I used today on this card except for the Swirly Frames.  If you’d like to shop with me, click HERE and use the Hostess Code BNQEJNBK when you check out and I will send you a surprise in the mail.

Your BFF,
Jenn
