Global Blog Hop #7: Sketch Challenge!

Posted on

Welcome to another month of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  This month we’ve got a sketch challenge!  Here’s the sketch:

Here’s what I made:

It’s my dad’s birthday today, so I had made this card for him using the sketch.  I really like the stamp set, Guy Greetings because it sums up my dad perfectly.  He was always working on a car or fixing things around the house.  Yes, he really did teach me, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey!  And I’ve since taught my kids!   The argyle print in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack is the perfect addition to a masculine card, in my opinion.  Love you DAD!

What can you create using this sketch? Leave a comment, along with a link to your blog and I’ll come check it out!

Tomorrow is my monthly Stamp Camp.  RSVP on the Event page over on the BFF Stampers facebook page if you’d like to join us.  This is the last month to enter to win the April Stamp Camp for FREE!  Just bring a new friend and you and your friend will get an entry into the raffle!

Shop my Stampin’ Up! store HERE and don’t forget to use Hostess Code: 3AGXYPCB and you will receive a surprise in the mail from me!

Don’t forget!  SALE-A-BRATION is still in full swing!  Check out the brochure of all the FREE exclusive items you can only get with a $50 purchase!  They’ve even added some new stuff!

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

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop/Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration

Posted on

Hi BFF’s!!! I’m so happy to get back into a schedule after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s. I pray that all of you and your families had a safe and happy New Year and that you all got the love you wanted for Christmas 🙂

So Phew! We’re back and do we have some exciting news for you! Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration is available to look at and buy from! Squeal! And we hope you will love it as much as we do.  There’s beautiful Valentine’s Day stuff and surly Manly stuff.  Dragonflies, Hot Air Balloons and Succulents!  Ice cream, Circus and Heros! Such a variety! The blog hop today is showcasing some of the items from the new catalog, so here goes!

My absolute favorite is the balloon pop up dies. I just used them to make invitations for a birthday party!  They were so fun and and easy way to add something spectacular.

Here is the video straight from Stampin’ Up! showing you exactly how to use the dies.

There are so many fabulous stamps, designer series paper and adorable little embellishments, that you will not have a problem finding $50 worth of stuff to buy.  And for every $50 you spend in product, you receive something free from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  You can not buy the product from the SAB, you’ve got to earn it!  So come check out the catalog and let me know what’s on your wish list!  If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, then I’d love to send you a catalog.  Just contact me and let me know!

Here’s a few more cards using new items.

This baby card is made with a sentiment from the Stamp Set, All Things Thanks.

And this card is made from a stamp set called Window Shopping, but the stamp set is not the best part!  The best part is the Window Box Thinlet Die that you can buy to go with it!  I’ll add the video below.

We went to a meeting with our team and got some adorable cards using their pre-orders also.

How to earn free stamps:

  1. Shop!!!  Buy online or buy in person:  For every $50 you spend on product out of ANY catalog or online in the clearance, you will receive a FREE Sale-A-Bration item of your choice from the brochure.

Mojo Monday 477 – Joyful Christmas

Posted on

Hi BFF’s!

I finally found some time to do a Mojo Monday Sketch.  This one is perfect for a Christmas card.  It went together fast because I used a coordinating designer series paper pack called This Christmas from Stampin’ Up!  I love this paper.  Here’s the sketch:

mojo477

And here’s my take:

image

What I like most about sketch challenges is that you can flip the sketch around, replace embellishments with other embellishments and use any colors you want!  So everyone’s ideas are so different!  Click on the sketch and take a look at the Mojo Monday blog and all of the ideas and then make a card and link it to their blog!  This weeks challenge can win a prize!  Good luck!

Your BFF’s,

Jenn & Lisa


Global Stamping Friends – Blog Hop #4 – All Wrapped Up!

Posted on

Hi BFFs!

Glad you could join us for the 4th Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “All Wrapped Up!”

It was so fun coming up with different ways to wrap various gifts for Christmas!

The first thing I made was a peek-a-boo box using Stampin’ Up’s! White Gift Boxes. Stampin’ Up! provides easy to alter gift packaging. The boxes are 3″ x 3″, so a pretty good size. I made a couple things with the boxes and also used the Petite Cafe Gift Bags for the cute paper bag. Fun fact: the Petite Cafe gift bags are poly-lined, which means you can put food inside and nothing will show on the outside of your bag. They are great for those cookie or fudge gifts!

On this white gift box, I made a bow using the patterned paper. I absolutely love these little mugs using the envelope punch board. Such a unique way to wrap up candy or give a gift card.

And speaking of gift cards, no Christmas would be complete without a Santa gift card holder.

image-3

Last but not least, I made a cute sour cream container using the Petals & Paisleys specialty designer series paper. This Star of Light stamp set and thinlets are definitely my favorite item of the season.

I hope you enjoyed our projects and hopefully found some ideas to spruce up your gift wrapping this year.


Take a look at what our Global Friends have created!
