Favorites from the NEW Catalog – Stamp N’ Hop

Yay! Today is the first full day of summer vacation and it has finally warmed up! Good thing to because we are planning a graduation party this weekend at the beach for my twin daughters. They graduated High School and I couldn’t be more proud! Although a cliché, the term, ‘it all flew by so fast’ was all I could think of during the graduation. It’s been an exhausting June so far but such a fun new chapter in their lives.

The new annual catalog is out and I’m in full crafting mode with fun stuff! The catalog is always such an inspiring work of art with so many beautiful stamp sets that it was hard to choose which one to start with, so I chose Magnolia Lane. This gorgeous flower and designer series paper has really won me over.

I made a fancy fold easel card for my buyers club.

I also used this set to make a scrapbook layout and this big bag I CASE’d from Sam Hammond. The tutorial is on her blog HERE.

I used the Hot Air Balloon Punch along with the die cuts in the Magnolia Memory Dies to make the paper pieced Magnolia flower.

Thank you for stopping by my blog during the Stamp ‘N Hop. Up next is Vickie Kello. I can’t wait to see what she has made. Click the arrow to go straight to her blog. Below will be a list of everything I used on my projects today. Please take note that if you do buy this stamp set, the Magnolia flower is very big and you will need either a Clear Block F or a Stamparatus to stamp with it.

Holiday Catalog Fun with Stamp N’ Hop!

Hi Friends!  Welcome to another round of Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop where demonstrators from around the world all get together for one cause: to inspire you!  This month we are having fun with new products from the Holiday Catalog.

I chose to feature the stamp set So Santa which has a Santa that is whimsical and fun doing unconventional santa things like baking, motorscooting and my favorite, surfing!

We had a Holiday Extravaganza to kick off the new catalog and half the attendees received a gift.  The way we decided who would win was by these adorable scratch-offs!  They were so fun and easy to make.

Each person got a scratch-off and when scratched would reveal either Merry Christmas or Bah Humbug!  You can probably guess who the winners were 🙂

I made these by printing the Merry Christmas or Bah Humbug onto Whisper White cardstock.  You can also stamp a sentiment.  Then I stamped the Santa and the HO! HO! HO! sentiment using Memento Ink.  I colored them with the Stampin’ Blends, attached the scratch-off blue water and adhered the whole thing to a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  Here are the directions on how to make the scratch-offs:

You will need:
– Clear Contact Paper (I got mine at the Dollar Store)
– Acrylic Paint
– Liquid Dish Soap
– Paint Brush (I used a foam paint brush)

Lay out the contact paper flat.  I used rocks to keep mine from rolling back up.  Mix 2 parts paint to 1 part dish soap.  Using the paint brush, paint onto the contact paper.  You will need at least 3-5 layers of paint letting it dry about 15 minuted in between coats or it will become very streaky.  The darker the paint, the less layers you will need.  I then let it dry overnight and the next morning I couldn’t help but scratch some off to make sure it worked 🙂

Using the Seasonal Layers Framelit Dies to cut the wave shape and then peeled off the back of the contact paper and stuck it onto the cardstock.

I hope you do give this homemade scratch-off a try.  It is such a fun technique and a real wow to the people who receive it.

You are visiting Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers. Please continue to hop along and be inspired by all the demonstrators participating in the hop this month.

Your BFF,

Jenn
