RemARKably Created Blog Tour: Easter!

Posted on

Welcome to another month with us hopping around the Remarkably Creative Blog Tour.  You are visiting Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  This month our theme is Easter.  I love Easter!  As a Christian, I believe that Jesus died to give me life.  Easter is when we celebrate this FREE gift God has given us.  How do you celebrate?

The cards that I’ve made are using the new Blossoming Basket stamp set.  This beautiful basket of flowers is perfect for an Easter card.  I’ve paired it here with Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.

I’ve used the Pretty Label punch to punch out my sentiment and stick it under.

I “painted” on the ink by smooshing the ink pad and using the ink on the lid with a Wink of Stella as my “paintbrush”.  I love the glittery effect that Wink of Stella leaves on everything!  Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz were the colors I used.  Then using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend, I colored the basket.  You need to use the Memento Black Ink Pad while using the alcohol markers or the stamped image will bleed. In this case, I stamped the basket in Crumb Cake itself and wanted it to bleed a little for a more textured look.

Here is more of a close-up of my card.  I sponged the pink Pretty Label Punch, the designer series paper and the white focal image cardstock all in Crumb Cake.  I used Linen Thread to tie the bow.

At Stamp Camp last night we made this set.

Here is another card with the same idea but using Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and So Saffron card Base.  I used the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the crumb cake piece on the card and also on the basket.  This stamp set and embossing folder are a FREE Sale-A-Bration item you can earn with a $100 order.  I also used our Stampin’ Spritzer filled with alcohol and 10 drops of Daffodil Delight Re-inker to change the color of the Shreddie.  It comes in Berry Burst, Silver and White.  The dots on the background of the card is a stamp from Timeless Textures and the framelit I used to cut the Happy Easter sentiment on the basket is from Bunch of Banners Framelits.  And my friend Doris brought me these pretty tulips to class last night. Isn’t she sweet?

Last but not least I wanted to show you a card I made using the Hold on to Hope stamp set and Framelits Dies.  I did get this idea off of Pinterest but I can not re-find the card I cased to give credit.  So if this was your idea, thank you!

This card uses Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon and Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The cross is cut from Silver Foil.  The sentiment says: Celebrating one of God’s most Remarkable Creations – and the inside says YOU!  I want each of you to take this card to heart because it is true!  You are Remarkable and made by God and He doesn’t make mistakes!  You are perfect in His eyes, just the way you are.

Thanks for hopping with us today!  Below is a full lineup of everyone with their Easter projects.  Remember, you are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers.  Praying you have a fantastic Easter surrounded by people you love.

Remarkably Created Blog Hop – Mix & Match Stampin’ Up!

Posted on

Welcome to another round of the Remarkably Creative Blog Tour.  The theme for the month is Mix & Match!  The objective is to show you just how compatible our mini catalogs are with our main annual catalog.  You are at Jenn Charles – BFF Stampers and if you’d like to hop around, the entire list of participants are listed below.  Thank you for joining us today.

I must admit, I had a hard time finding stepping out of my comfort zone to mix and match my sets.  I learned during this challenge that I am definitely a “keep your suites together” type of gal.  With the exception of sentiments, I rarely mix my sets together.  However, we have so much variety to offer in our catalogs that you are bound to find something that works just for you!

My first card features my absolute favorite designer series paper, Petal Passion along with my favorite In-Color this year, Berry Burst. The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set.  These products are both featured in the Petal Passion Suite.  I pulled out the Oh, So Eclectic stamp set and thinlit dies and it all fell together perfectly.

I think that every color matches with this paper and you just can’t go wrong!  Of course I had to have Silver Glimmer Paper because I have to have bling!  I also embossed a few spots on the flowers with silver embossing powder just to add more glimmer.

After I got started, I couldn’t stop!  I pulled out the Waterfront Stamp Set to make some water to make a little lakeside scene to reflect Spring.  The chair, branch, flowers and sentiment all come from the Colorful Seasons Bundle.

The Waterfront Stamp Set is so versatile to make all different kinds of scenes depending on the colors you use.  I’ve used Soft Sky and Marina Mist for the water.  My flowers are Sweet Sugarplum and my chair is cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Start mixing and matching your stamp sets and papers.  You will come up with some unique and fun projects.

Just a reminder, you are with Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers.  Click on the next name below mine to continue getting ideas.  All of the products used today are at the bottom of the post.

Your BFF,


Global Stamping Friends – All about LOVE!

Posted on

Welcome to February Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!  You are here at Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  There are so many fun creations this month for our theme: LOVE!  So fitting for the month of February.

I’ve decided to go with a scrapbook page today to showcase the love between my twin daughters.  I’m feeling very nostalgic lately because they turned 17 last month and I’m realizing they won’t be here much longer.  They will be off to college and their own lives soon.

  Here you can see a little peek of my hidden journaling.  I like to hide my journaling because I don’t like my handwriting so much.

I’ve used the Petal Palette Designer Series Paper, Memories & More cards and die cuts.  The colors are black, white, blushing bride, and silver glimmer.  I’ve also stamped in Smoky Slate on the heart.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project.  Hop along and see the rest of the Friends from all over the World.  Up next is Karie Beglau.  There’s a full list of everyone below if you’d like to hop around randomly!

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Valentines!!!

Posted on

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me on 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’m not very big on Valentine’s Day.  I’m not exactly sure why except that I’ve never been a mushy gushy show-your-love type of gal.  I married a man who is exactly like me.  Usually hubby will bring home a flower and a card for each of our daughters (we have 3) and a manly (ninja turtles or whatever is in style that year) box of candy for our son.  I get flowers and a card.  It’s all very ritualistic.  I think I’d rather him surprise me with some flowers on a random day, because unfortunately, I have come to expect to receive something and then it loses it’s meaning, doesn’t it?  I’m sure I’m overthinking it all.

So anywho, on to my card.  I’m still using the Petal Palette set.  I absolutely love it.  I’ve made a card showcasing my love for this set.  HAHA.  Just kidding.  I will probably give this card to my hubby on Valentine’s Day, because it’s expected.

The colors I used were Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Black and White.

I hope you like my card and are inspired with a non-Valentiney Valentine’s Day card.
