International Highlights December Winners Blog Hop – Love Again!

Posted on

I am so honored to announce that I submitted a card into Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights for November and won top 10!  The link to that blog post is HERE. The reward is a special hop with just the top 10 submissions using the same theme: Love.

So today I’ve made a card using the Merry Cafe stamp set along with the Coffee Cafe set to make a gift card holder for a friend of mine.  We both LOVE Starbucks and each other!

I embossed the sentiment and the heart using gold embossing powder. I love all the bling on this card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Coffee Break designer series paper is perfect with these little hearts to show my affection (for coffee) and my friend.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Thank you so much for voting for me so I can be in this special hop.  Follow along in the lineup below and see what the other talented winners made.

Your BFF,

Jenn

Global Stamping Friends – Festive Celebrations

Posted on

Happy December!  December! Already!  Where has the year gone?

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop featuring Festive Celebrations!  These ladies never cease to amaze me with their creativity and the projects they come up with every month.

For my project, I’ve come up with a card and tag idea with a coordinating box.  I made it less feminine because it will be for my husband’s friend.  Coming up with manly ideas is very hard for me.  Do you struggle with that?

I coordinated them all using the Colorful Seasons Designer Series Pack.  The Christmas tree came from our timeless Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  It’s been around forever!

The Happy Christmas banner stamp is from a newer stamp set called Labels to Love.  You can find a list of everything I used down below.

These boxes are really easy to make.  They are very convenient for gift packaging year round, making them any size you need.

To make this box I used:
Thick Whisper White cardstock – 8×8 scored at 2 inches on all 4 sides.
Designer Series Paper – 6×6 scored at 1 inch on all sides.
Fold all the score lines. You will have 4 square corners on both pieces.  Cut one side to the line and adhere it together.  I like to use tear & tape so my box won’t dare to fall apart even with heavier items inside.

I CASE’d this card from a card in our Annual Catalog on Page 141 for the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge #156.  I love challenging myself to come up with something new while also making it easier by using something already done! Does that make sense!  LOL.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card and gift packaging idea today.  Thank you for hopping along.  Click on the NEXT arrow to check out the talented creations by Marieke Bart.  There is a Roll call of everyone hopping today below for your convenience.

Jenn

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Give Thanks

Posted on

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for October 2017. This month our theme is Give Thanks!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I’ve decided to make a fall card although today I am mostly grateful for the family and friends surrounding my dad.  My dad lost his wife (my stepmom) a couple weeks ago and so many gathered yesterday to express the love they all had for her.  It was beautiful and made my dad so happy.

 

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog – BFF Stampers, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
