Stamp ‘N Hop – Color Challenge!

Welcome to February’s Stamp ‘n Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles and this month our them is a Color Challenge. I’ve been participating in a monthly color challenge blog hop now for a few months and they always stump me! I set the colored cardstock out on my desk and it sits there all month. I figure if I put it out there it will give me some inspiration, but it rarely happens and I just end up throwing something together. I’m not even very good at matching my clothes 🤣

The three colors above were a perfect match for the Berry Delightful DSP that you can get for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. This month is the last month to earn SAB products.

One of my favorite techniques is heat embossing white on Crumb Cake cardstock and coloring with my watercolor pencils. I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen to watercolor with. It’s hard to see the glitter, but it’s there. I also heat embossed white for the sentiment onto a piece of vellum. I love how you can still see the stamping through the sentiment piece.

I hope you found inspiration in my card using these colors. Up Next is Cheryl Taylor. Click on the Next button to hop on over to her blog. Don’t forget to leave everyone some love. We appreciate hearing from you!

Galentine’s Day is February 13th!

Have you ever celebrated Galentine’s Day? I have to admit that I had heard of it but never celebrated it. Now that I’m married, of course I celebrate Valentine’s Day. Well, let’s be honest, how much can you really celebrate when you celebrate Valentine’s Day with kids every single year!? LOL.

But back to Galentine’s. Stampin’ Up! made the cutest stamp and punch bundle called Hearts & Kisses that is all about our gal pals and I had to make a quick card with it for all my gals to see. I participated in a few challenges while making this card.

I’ve joined the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge. That means making a project with your interpretation of the word which is “Valentine”. I thought Galentine was totally appropriate.

I also participated in this week’s TGIF color Challenge. This week’s color’s were Smoky Slate, Real Red and Petal Pink which are perfect colors for a Valentine card.

I used the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add glitter to the lips because Why Not!!

I hope you get a little inspiration to send your gal pals a little love this Valentine’s and know that everyone needs a little reminder that they are loved. <3

Your BFF,
Jenn

Technique Tuesday – Die Cutting

Welcome to the Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles. This month’s theme is Die Cutting! There are so many fancy techniques for die cutting but the one I use the most is layering over a die cut with other die cut pieces. Usually I’d cut apart a die cut to layer it with other colors but the Always in My Heart Bundle has extra dies to cut out the pieces. I Love that!

The colors I chose were Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose because those are the colors in the Foil Sheets.

Stampin’ Up! has this fantastic product called Adhesive Sheets. They are sticky on both sides and you put the cardstock on one side, run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine and when it comes out, the die cut has a backing that you pull off and it becomes a sticker. It’s the absolute best product to use with die cutting intricate pieces like these. I have a link to all products use below the blog hop participants.

The banner is in the die cuts also. It already has the fold lines embossed to give it the banner look.

I also participated in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge using a Fun Fold, Floral/Image and Splatters. If you’d like to play along, click the image below to head over to their page.

Thank you for stopping by and hopping along with us today. I hope you were inspired by my die cutting technique. Check out the list below and keep hopping to get even more ideas.

Your BFF,
Jenn

Always in My Heart Card
 
INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Score 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Pool Party cardstock at 4-1/4″ along the 8-1/2″ side and fold.

2. Cut the Pool Party gesso textured pattern of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and adhere to the card front.

3. Cut Vellum cardstock to 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. Add Stampin’ SEAL near the center of the vellum where it will be covered by the other layers and adhere the vellum centered on the card front.

4. Add 2 stripes of Stampin’ SEAL vertically near the center of the vellum layer, where it will be covered by other layers. Zig zag a 16″ piece of the Pool Party Sheer ribbon, starting at the left edge near the top and ending at the right edge closer to the bottom.

5. Die cut Pearlescent Specialty Paper with the floral heart image from the Floral Hearts dies. Keep both the heart wreath and the heart cut from the center. Adhere both pieces to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Glue Dots.

6. Die cut about 6 leaf shapes from Old Olive and Granny Apple Green cardstock with the Floral Hearts dies and layer onto the edges of the heart wreath with Glue Dots.

7. Stamp Basic White cardstock with the two 2-step flower images shown. Stamp the outline image of one flowers with Petal Pink ink and a second with Poppy Parade ink. Stamp the outline image of the other flower in Bumblebee ink and a second with Calypso Coral ink. Stamp the coordinating solid image for each flower in the same color, but stamp it off once or twice before stamping to get a lighter fill color.

8. Die cut the flowers with the coordinating dies, it’s easy to do since the die set includes 2 dies of each flower! Add flowers to the heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Mini Glue Dots.

9. Stamp scrap Pool Party cardstock with the “Happy Anniversary” or “Be My Valentine” image using Pretty Peacock ink. Die cut with the banner. Fold the banner ends on the score lines to make it appear 3D. Add the banner to the card with Glue Dots on the ends and Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center.

10. Add about 5 Gold Glitter Enamel Dots in various sizes to the heart and the card.
