Global Stamping Friends – All about LOVE!

Posted on

Welcome to February Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  You are here at Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  There are so many fun creations this month for our theme: LOVE!  So fitting for the month of February.

I’ve decided to go with a scrapbook page today to showcase the love between my twin daughters.  I’m feeling very nostalgic lately because they turned 17 last month and I’m realizing they won’t be here much longer.  They will be off to college and their own lives soon.

  Here you can see a little peek of my hidden journaling.  I like to hide my journaling because I don’t like my handwriting so much.

I’ve used the Petal Palette Designer Series Paper, Memories & More cards and die cuts.  The colors are black, white, blushing bride, and silver glimmer.  I’ve also stamped in Smoky Slate on the heart.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project.  Hop along and see the rest of the Friends from all over the World.  Up next is Karie Beglau.  There’s a full list of everyone below if you’d like to hop around randomly!

Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop

Posted on

Wow Wow Wow!  It’s finally here!  The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are FINALLY here!!!  I’m so excited to be a part of this hop with these amazing, talented demonstrators.  We’ve got a fantastic assortment of creativity to share with you.  I’m praying that after you finish hopping through, you will be just as excited as I am about all the wonderfully exclusive things YOU can earn for FREE with a $50 order starting tomorrow!

I’ve got a couple Sale-A-Bration items myself that I was able to get early as a perk of being a demonstrator.  My most favoritest (is that even a word?) of them all is a stamp set called Epic Celebrations.  For those of you that don’t know, I have two teenage daughters in my home.  They always need a card and all of mine are either too flowery or too plain.  Every once in a while they will really like a card.  This new stamp set is perfect for teenage b-day cards.  Or just the occasional, hey, I have to give you a card because my mom said, card. It’s cool and that makes me cool.  HA!

Introducing Epic Celebrations:

Take note of the beautiful colors of that scrapbook paper behind the stamp set.  That is also something you can earn for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, it’s called the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper.

Here’s what I’ve come up with using these 2 products together.

This turquoise glimmer paper is from the Occasions Catalog.  It matches perfectly with Bermuda Bay colored designer series paper.  I colored the converse shoes with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  I love these markers!

I hope you fall in love with this stamp set like I did.  Hop along and check out all the fun ideas using the Sale-A-Bration items. Scroll to the bottom for upcoming classes and ways to earn even MORE FREE stuff!


Need a Catalog?  If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog and get you hooked on papercrafting!  Contact me and I’ll send you out the catalog with a surprise!

The Occasions Catalog goes live tomorrow!  A couple options to earn more FREE stuff!
***Host a party with $250 in sales and you can receive at least $50 in FREE product of your choice!

***Collect orders (or put in your own order) of $100 and join me in a Catalog Hostess Party.  I need 10 friends to host a $1,000 party and you will all receive a share of the Hostess Benefits.

***Want it all?  Did you know that you can sign up to be on Team BFF and you will receive a discount of 20% on everything you order and get the perks of being first to see everything and first to order it? Starting tomorrow, you can get $125 worth of product for $99 with FREE Shipping AND you will also receive 2 FREE stamp sets of your choice!

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop 6-Color Challenge!

Posted on

logo for gsf

Hi and Welcome to the BFF Stampers blog. I’m so excited to be participating in our 6th Blog Hop.  All of these crafters are so talented and I’m blessed to be united with them.

Today on our blog hop we have a color challenge!  I hope you are inspired by the three colors we have chosen.  The colors are So Saffron, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi.  These colors are really beautiful together.

color swatches

When I do a color challenge, I like to get out all the cardstock and ink of the colors that I have.  I play around and stamp different images but the thing that is in right now is watercoloring!  I have to admit, I am absolutely no good at watercoloring.  I’ve tried all the different techniques and I just can’t get it right.  So for this card, I pulled out my trustworthy Watercolor Wash background stamp.  You can’t go wrong with a built in water color look.

Watercolor dragonflies

Doesn’t that black really make the colors pop?  I used my Aqua Painter and dampened the whole stamp first, then I squeezed a little ink onto the lid of the stamp pad and used my aqua painter to paint the layers onto the stamp.  Then stamped it onto watercolor paper.  And it’s watercolored.  And I liked it!  And yes, I’m pleasantly surprised!

I think these dragonflies might be my favorite set from the new catalog.  The background paper I used in the photo is called Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  It is a Sale-A-Bration product that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase.  It’s 12 sheets of black and white scrapbook paper, perfect for coloring!  What is your favorite product from the new catalogs?

Stamp Camp feb 4

This Saturday, Feb. 4th I’m having the Occasions Kick Off Stamp Camp.  We will be making these cards plus a surprise Valentine Card and demoing some fun product.  We might even get to color some of that paper from above with the new Watercolor Pencils!  It starts at 6 p.m. at Sew Easy Studio here in Ramona.  Check out the Facebook Page at BFF Stampers and click on Events.  Don’t forget your adhesive and paper snips.

Thank you for joining me on the hop!  Next you will enjoy the creativity of Kimberley Anne Morris.

Happy Stamping,

Jenn
