Welcome to another Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop where Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world come together to inspire you!
This month’s theme is circles.
This is my first time using this gorgeous paper and I wanted to use it all! It has a iridescent shine to it that makes it really stand out.
For some reason, making a card with circles was very difficult for me. After over an hour of agonizing on a card that wasn’t coming together, I gave up and made this in 5 minutes! Ha! So my advice today is stop overthinking! I love love love this card. It showcases the paper which is exactly what I was trying to do. I hope you give this card a try. Oh, and notice the Subtle Embossing on the Gray Granite cardstock. I use this embossing folder on everything now! Thanks for looking!
Every month I offer a FREE gift with a $50 order when you order online using that month’s Hostess Code. This month the FREE gift is Pearls. Use the hostess code GZETS2MD for November.

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.

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.
