Global Stamping Friends – Extraordinary Anniversary Blog Hop

Posted on

Welcome to the 3rd year anniversary of Global Stamping Friends. I can not believe it’s been 3 years of fun stamping with this group of friends from all over the world!

To celebrate this year’s anniversary, I’m going to go back to my first post with this group and remake the project I made at that time! It was an adorable baby shaker card.

Click the photo above to be taken to the very first post I did for the Global Stamping Friends.

Here I’ve used the stamp set Above the Clouds to CASE the baby card. The designer series paper is from the Follow Your Art suite.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today to celebrate Global Stamping Friends’ Anniversary. Up next is Amanda Farlinger.


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!

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

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
