Creative Inking Blog Hop - Designer Series Paper Showcase

Creative Inking Blog Hop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #bloghop, #designerseriespapers

Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop!  This month our focus is the fabulous designer series papers from Stampin' Up!  What my customers tell me they love about these papers are the quality, that they are 2 sided and that the colors all match with Stampin' Up!'s colors.  3 Great reasons.

I've decided to focus on 1 layout and showcase that layout with different designer series papers.  You are in for a treat! 

Scenic Sayings, Fruit Stand, #scenicsayings, #fruitstanddesignerseriespaper, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard, #handstampedcard, #cardclassinthemail,

Fruit Stand Designer Series paper is showcased on this beauty!  Love the color combination!   This card made me happy and the greeting comes from the Scenic Sayings stamp set.  Check out the cute enamel shape on the greeting!  Such a great finishing touch!

All Things Thanks, Morocccan designer series paper, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard, #handstampedcard, #cardclassinthemail, #allthingsthanks, #Moroccandesignerseriespaper

Check out this beautiful color scheme - Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim!  The paper is the Moroccan designer series paper - love the designs!  I used a greeting from the All Thing Thanks stamp set which is in the Occasions catalog.  Check out the cute enamel shape on this card too!

Seaside Shore, By the Shore, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard, #handstampedcard, #cardclassinthemail, #seasideshore, #bytheshoredesignerseriespaper

 Here's a fun card using the Seaside Shore stamp set and the By the Shore designer series paper.  Are you seeing how easy it is to make cards with 1 layout and our designer series papers?  You don't have to worry about matching any colors! 

Floral Phrases, Floral Boutique, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard, #handstampedcard, #cardclassinthemail, #floralboutique, #floralphrases

This is my husband's favorite!  Floral Phrases is the name of the stamp set and Floral Boutique is the name of the designer series paper.  This is such a classic color combination - Night of Navy and White.   Remember the Floral Boutique class is still available!  It has been the most popular class in the mail EVER!

Check out the Floral Boutique Class in the Mail here.

Friendly Wishes, Succulent Garden, #bloghop, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard, #handstampedcard, #cardclassinthemail,

And finally I paired the Friendly Wishes stamp set with the Succulent Garden designer series paper from the Occasions catalog.  

Which card is your favorite?  Please share with us all?  Which paper didn't I use that would be awesome?

These papers will be making way for new ones in June. . . get your favorites now!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Food Challenge

Stampers Dozen, Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Creative Inking Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring projects with a Food Theme.  We all love food right?  So, you're going to love this hop!

Cool treats, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Frozen Treats, #cooltreats, #frozentreatsframelits, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #tastytreats, #birthdaycard, #papercrafts, #handstamped, #rubberstamping

One of my favorite things is ice cream!  So the Cool Treats bundle was an obvious choice for me!  Read on to check out the cool technique I used to make the ice cream stand out even more! 

First, let's check out the Nugget treats.  Cool treats, Frozen Treat, Tasty Treats, #cooltreats, #tastytreats, #frozentreats, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #candytreat, #nuggettreat, #stampinupdemonstrator, Nugget treats are an easy peasy add on to make any card great!  Chocolate = Awesome - Right!  

Cool treats, Frozen Treat, Tasty Treats, #cooltreats, #tastytreats, #frozentreats, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #candytreat, #nuggettreat, #stampinupdemonstrator, #birthdaycard,

I used the Celebrations Duo embossing folder to create the debossed "celebrate" image.  Then I stamped the ice cream popsicles over the top in Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Watermelon Wonder.  

Look closely at the popsicles - do you see the bit of shine on them?   Here's the tip:  If you use the fine tip glue pen and paint the images, the glue dries clear and gives you that cool shine that makes them look more real!  I used the fine tip glue pen to also add the sprinkles embellishments that are also part of the Cool Treats Product suite.  

I think this product suite - is "cool" and would be a Tasty Treat to be in your stamping cupboard!  (LOL).

I chose to showcase a unique bundle from the Occasions catalog;  the Happy Celebrations stamp set bundled with the Celebrations Duo textured embossing folder.  It is unique because it creates a lovely debossed impression!    Watch as the debossed impression comes to life when you stamp one of the many images from the Happy Celebrations stamp set over the top!

 Diagonal images are trendy and with this debossing folder you can do a diagonal impression easily.   I accented with designer series paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels paper pack. (I love these stacks for their great versatility and value).

Thailand Achievers Blog Hop - Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek

ThailandWelcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for December. This month our theme is the "Occasions Catalogue Sneak Peek" we ALL get excited about new product and we want to showcase some of the new products for you to give you ideas and inspire you for the new Occasions catalogue that starts 4th January 2016.  One of the perks of being a demonstrator is receiving the new goodies before anyone else! 

For my sneak peek, I chose to use a bundle that everyone is super excited about.  My customers who have received their catalogs in the mail already tell me this bundle will be on their first order!  The bundle is Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

You'll want to check out these fabulous samples and be sure and check out the end of this post for a class (hint:  Techniques) you won't want to miss.

Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop with a theme of Winter Frolics.  The winter frolics have started at our house. . our grandson is 20 months and is absolutely LOVING the snow. 

12-2-16He doesn't like gloves because he can't get the thumb thing worked out.  His hands get cold. . . so I am thinking it is time for him to be introduced to hot chocolate which is the inspiration for my share today using the Snow Place stamp set and Snow Friends framelits. 

Snow Place, Snow Friends, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #snowfriends, #snowplace, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpetersThe Snow Friends framelits and Snow Place stamp set are in the annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  It has been a perennial favorite for a few years.  The matchbox style card holds a package of hot chocolate - and of course you need some marshmellows for the hot chocolate! 

Snow Place, Snow Friends, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog hop, #snowfriends, #snowplace, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bloghop, #bjpetersSo stinkin' cute!   And super easy.  This could be a great last minute neighbor, mailman, teacher or co-worker gift this holiday season.  What are you waiting for?

Creative Inking Blog Hop - Homemade Holidays

Stampin' up!, BLog Hop, BJ Peters Santa's Sleigh, Snow Place, Snow Friends, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, #snowfriends, #snowplace, #santa'ssleigh, #stampinbj.com
Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop for November.  This month's theme is Homemade Holidays.  When I saw this theme, I immediately thought about gifts.  I love to make homemade gifts for they are one of a kind and cherished by those that receive them.  One of my favorite things to make is a frame as I find it easy to create a scene.   This one was inspired by a painting I saw at a craft fair yesterday.

Santa's Sleigh, Snow Place, Snow Friends, Christmas, #santa'ssleigh, #snowfriends, #snowplace, #christmasdecor, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comI used the Santa's Sleigh bundle as a start.   I layered Garden Green, Always Artichoke & a Warmth & Cheer dsp pine tree on my Soft Sky background embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I added the reindeer.  As an afterthought, I wish I would have put a bow or the wreath from the bundle around his neck.  The reindeer is prancing on Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

Santa's Sleigh, Snow Place, Snow Friends, Christmas, #santa'ssleigh, #snowfriends, #snowplace, #christmasdecor, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comThen I used the Snow Place stamp set with the coordinating Snow Friends framelits to add the cute little snowmen.  I added a greeting from the Tin of Tags stamp set to finish it off.   Do you wish you were getting this frame?  Why not make one of your own! 

Online Extravaganza, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #stampinupsale, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #onlinestampingsaleTomorrow is a BIG day - the start of the Online Extravaganza from Stampin' Up!   ONE DAY Only deals on Monday, November 21 and November 28.  Check out the deals here and be sure and watch my blog for inspiration and updates!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Happy Holidays

Blog Hop, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersWelcome to this month's Stampers Dozen Blog Hop with a Happy Holidays theme.   For my inspiration, I didn't want to overlook Thanksgiving so, I am sharing my annual table decor for my Thanksgiving table this year.

Vintage Leaves, Table Decor, Stampin' Up!, Petals & Paisleys, #petals&paisleys, #vintageleaves, #tabledecor, #tablesetting, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #bloghop, I love this simple place setting.  It's simple enough to make a bunch, although my Thanksgiving dinner guests are typically small in number.  Let me share a few hints as to how simple this project is;

  • Using the Tag a Bag gift bags, emboss with Woodlands embossing folder. 
  • Cut a 2" x 12" strip of Petals & Paisleys designer series paper and adhere around bag as shown being careful to not have it too tight that the napkin and silverware won't fit inside.  Add a 3/4" strip of a contrasting paper that has a pennant end as shown.
  • Stamp 3 leaves using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and die cut with the leaflets framelits.  My leaves are in Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon.  I adhered the leaves with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Vintage Leaves, Table Decor, Stampin' Up!, Petals & Paisleys, #petals&paisleys, #vintageleaves, #tabledecor, #tablesetting, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #bloghop,
  • I added a button with linen thread tied through it.
  • The greeting is from the Acorny Thank You stamp set and is punched out with the Classic Label punch. 
  • The best finishing touch is the coordinating dessert peppermint chocolate you will add!

Thanks for stopping by!   Now be sure and continue on the blog hop!

Thailand Achievers Blog Hop - Inspired by Nature

Thailand Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for October. This is our first hop with those that have earned the prestige trip with Stampin' Up!® to Thailand next July. This month our theme is the "Inspired by Nature" as many of us live in different areas around the world and have amazing seasons that we are enjoying. Plus the nature in Thailand is just incredible so we are inspired by our trip too. 

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - BJ Peters 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.

Sunshine Wishes, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Serene Scenery, #sunshinewishes, #serenescenery, #stampinup, #stampinbj.comFor my inspiration, I thought about my past weekend where fall is in full splendor here in Minnesota (USA).  The Serene Scenery designer series paper stack provides plenty of nature inspiration.   For this card, I chose a dandelion background and simply used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set (they are a bundle) to add the flower and the greeting. 

Vintage Leaves, Stampin' Up!, Serene Scenery, #vintageleaves, #serencescenery, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comFor this card I used a different Serene Scenery background and added embossed leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set which coordinates with the leaflets framelits.  I thought the greeting from Paisleys & Posies stamp set was perfect for this card. 

Be sure and check out the value in the Serene Scenery designer series paper.  With 48 sheets of 12 double sided designs, you are sure to have more than 1 favorite.  And it's a great value.  One side is scenery like and the other side has images that make you feel warm and cozy - like a nice warm sweater.

The retiring list is available here!  I strongly recommend that you check out the list and get your orders in asap.  Accessories are available while supplies last and Stamp sets are guaranteed until May 22.  This all ends May 31 to prepare for the new catalog - which is TOTALLY amazing!

Grateful Bunch, Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, Petite Petals, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #stampinbj, #bjpetersHere's a sneak peak of a new In Color - Peakaboo Peach!  This is a sample that I made for the display boards at Stampin' Up!'s recent OnStage gathering for demonstrators.  Check out the ruched ribbon - it's so fun to work with!   You're gonna love the new In Colors!  The new catalogs will be available in early May.  My customers will be receiving them complimentary!

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - Friends Are Forever!

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog Hop, FriendshipFriends are Forever!  That's the theme for this month.  I chose to focus on a friend - the 4 legged kind.  Here's my Mercury that we had to put to sleep in December - bone cancer.  So, in honor of my friend I miss, here is this month's inspiration.

  BJ Peters

I chose the Playful Pals stamp set and Pyramid Pals thinlits - an awesome bundle in the Occasions catalog.  You are going to love the possibilities with this bundle! 

Playful pals, Pyramid Pals, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, #stampinbj, #bjpetersThere are so many possibilities with this bundle.  There are over 50 stamps and 18 dies.  You have a full scope of creativity at your fingers.  With a little imagination and perhaps a little help from my blog and pinterest, you are all set!  Here's a video to get you started!

In the Meadow, Staminpin' Up!, BJ Peters, Masculine, Blog Hop

"In the Meadow" is a beautiful stamp set for masculine cards.  It can be found in the Occasions catalog.  Here in Minnesota (USA), we enjoy nature and part of that is deer hunting for some (not me).  This is an easy stamp set to achieve results with for your masculine cards.  And as you view these images, you can see that you could use these images for multiple occasions;  birthday, anniversary, sympathy, thank you and probably more too. 

In the Meadow, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog Hop, Masculine cards, I watercolored the deer using an AquaPainter - if you have never used an aquapainter, you will love how easy it is to achieve gorgeous results with very little effort on your part!  If you look closely, you can also see that I have added Softy Sky ink with my aquapainter in the background.  An easy peasy touch with the aquapainters! 

In the Meadow, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Blog Hop, Masucline cards, Grand Vacation achievers blog hopI added a couple strips of Neutrals Background designer series paper (trying not to be a hoarder of my DSP!).    Then a gold metallic button with a bit of linen thread behind it is a great finishing touch.   These added details really show the receiver that you took the time to create a card that is perfect!  

All of these products are available to purchase in my online store.  Check them out!
