Global Stamping Friends – 2 Year Anniversary Hop!

Posted on

 

Hi friends!  Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Two Year Anniversary Hop!  I can’t believe we’ve been hopping for 2 years already!  I’ve been a demonstrator for almost 3 years now! I am blessed to have Stampin’ Up! a part of my life.  Stampin’ Up! gives me the opportunity to meet new like-minded people and make them life-long friends.  This month’s theme is anything we want to do!  I’m making some coasters to give out to some of those friends that I’ve made.

I’m using the Waterfront stamp set again because I love it!  It’s perfect for a silhouette type scene on these coasters.  I’ve stamped the scene in our retired Archival Black ink pad. I would recommend the Staz On black pad now.  I let them dry and then I painted them with Mod Podge to make them shiny and so the condensation of the drinks do not get into the coaster.  I used ceramic coasters.

I hope you like them and I really hope my friends like them.  See you next month in September for our Color Challenge!

Your BFF,
Jenn

Stamp N’ Hop – Masculine

Posted on

Welcome back to another Stamp ‘N Hop with demonstrators from all over the world showcasing MASCULINE products this month.

I have to admit, I struggle with the masculine side of crafting.  I love bling, ribbon and flowers.  I’ve been wanting to make a card for my husband to say thank you for working so hard for us everyday.  He loves everything water from fishing to surfing so today I am making a project using the stamp set, Waterfront.  I also used the Hardwood background stamp to get some woodgrain look on the card.  I got my inspiration for this card from a fabulous Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Kelly Kent.

I broke the fibers in a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock to make it look crumpled or “rugged”.  I stamped off the Tranquil Tide ink to make the water a lighter color.  I love Tranquil Tide because of the blue-green look and it can be used either way.  A list of supplies is down below.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please hop along to the rest of the talented crafters.  Up next is Laura Mackie.

Hi Friends!  Welcome to another round of the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop.  You are visiting me, Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  Next up is Mo Rootes.  This month’s theme is favorite designer series paper and I know the one I chose is going to be popular!

I’ve chosen the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  It has beautiful pearl accents throughout the pack and you get 24 sheets of thick double sided paper.  The project I’ve made is a box with a couple cards all made with one sheet of DSP.

Here are the dimensions to make the box:

DSP – 11 1/2″ x 8″

Score along the long side at – 3/4″, 5 3/8″, 6 1/8″ and 10 3/4″

Score along the short side at – 3/4″ and 7 1/4″

You will have a 4″ x 12″ strip of DSP left over.  Cut it to make 2 4″ x 5 1/2″ pieces for the card fronts.

Thank you for hopping by to check out my project today.

Global Stamping Friends July Blog Hop – Home Decor

Posted on

Welcome to another month full of fun projects made from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world.  Right now you are visiting me, Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  For July’s theme, we are making Home Decor items.  Today it is supposed to be 111° F!  That is very hot for my little town.  So we are at the beach!  I made a sign for my craft area that depicts my mood today.  I’m going to be sitting at the beach with my feet in the sand, RELAXING!

I am so glad that Mint Macaron has come back.  It goes perfectly with Smoky Slate and Bermuda Bay.  I got this inspiration from my shower curtain.  I’ve been wanting to make this for awhile now and this blog hop was just the push I needed to take the time to figure out how to do these chevrons.

I sponged all the pieces in Crumb Cake and used a Crumb Cake piece of cardstock for my backing.  The word is cut from the Large Letter Framelits in Crumb Cake and sponged also.  The little sand dollars are cut from the new Under the Sea Framelit Dies.

I hope you enjoyed my Home Decor item.  I know I do!  It’s so pretty!  These are my favorite colors for summer.

Next up is Sarah.  I know she is really going to WOW you with what she has created.  Below is a list of everyone in the hop.

Thanks for stopping by,
Your BFF,
Jenn
