Count down to OnStage Live I’m so excited – I’m getting ready to celebrate 30 years of Stampin’ Up! with my fellow demonstrators. I’ll have all kinds of wonderful project and goodies to share with you when I return!!! Meanwhile I’ve got some great posts lined up already sharing some of the projects I’ve made for this event that I hope you’ll enjoy.
Later today I’ll participating in Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap, an event that is all kinds of fun. I’m looking forward to seeing and stamping with some old friends while I’m there too. Any so today I thought I’d show you the card that I’ve designed as my project.
I really love the way this card turned out and think it will brighten the day of the recipient. I’m hoping everyone at the shoe box will feel the same way. How about you, what do you think?
I’ve got a quick video tutorial for you and a PDF also, so why not check them both out?

It’s Monday and I’ve got a week filled with tutorials for you! Today’s card is a Thank You card that I make to send out to those of you who place an order – and today’s card is the one I designed for November’s orders using a technique with our Embossing Paste.
I just fell in love with the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper when I saw it so I thought I’d use the beautiful Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper for this month’s project. I teamed it up with some of our Shimmer Paste and our brick mask.
But since I wanted to add a bit more color I tinted the Shimmer Paste Crumb Cake. Check out this quick Video Tutorial showing you just how simple that is to do! And that means we have unlimited colors to choose from. Who doesn’t like that?

And here is a quick reminder – There are just a few days left to get your November Pamper Pumpkin Kit! If this month’s kit is as popular as last years kit you’ll definitely want one!
Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.
This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.
I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial so you can recreate the Baby Wipe Technique for your projects!

And if you want to make some of these cards here is my video showing you how the card is put together too.

Today’s treat holder is a quick and easy one that you can make last minute for your holiday treat giving and it holds what else, chocolate! So it will be a hit with your chocolate lovers.
This treat was made using the fun little animal image from the Trick or Tweet stamp set – my favorite for making all those fun Halloween treats! And perfect for these Halloween wrapped chocolate Kisses I found this fall.
Check out this video tutorial so you can make some too.

Enjoy! And then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some birthday inspired cards with you.
Each month I stamp a special Thank You card for everyone who places an order with me and so today I thought I’d share the one I made for October.
This set is an oldie but goodie and I love the ease of working with these images. The set itself is a 2 Step set which means it gives you lots of options for color combinations. And this set is a bit special, since when you line of the mark that is shown to you on the sheet you get this beautiful image, turn it a bit and you’ll get a fuller flower. So much fun to play with and try different combinations!
The layout for this card was inspired by our Demonstrator Stampin’ Success Magazine that we get each quarter with tons of ideas and tips. I loved the color combination of the Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink.
I’ve typed up a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too.
I love to make little treat items for family and friends and so when I saw the Trick or Tweets stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I knew it would be perfect for this year’s Halloween treats.
Check out this cute little box I made using the set
My fellow stamper, Pam gave this cute little box idea last spring and so I wanted to give it a try myself. Turns out these little boxes are sooooo easy to make, that they are kind of addictive once you get going.
Or at least I couldn’t stop – LOL! The images and color combinations were just a lot of fun to play with once I got coloring with my Stampin’ Blends.
I thought you might like to try some too for your treats so I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial.

And of course I’ve included a complete supply list on my PDF tutorial for you.
Why not leave me a comment and let me know which combination is your favorite?
Have you seen the Take Your Pick Tool in the Holiday catalog on page 30? I’m so excited about this tool with all it’s features. I’m using it all the time!
Not only can you pick up small items with the Putty end, you have a spatula so you can pick up adhered card stock layers, a paper piercer and stylus. As usual Stampin’ Up! has done it again – creating a high quality tool to make our paper crafting easier. What could be better?
A lovely box to hold it and keep everything together of course. I went looking for a way to keep all the pieces together and here is what I came up with.
These boxes are easy to make and will keep everything together for you in one place. I really like the way my first box turned out, so much so I decided to add a magnetic flap to it – so you’ve got two options when making your own.
Here is a video tutorial for you, the PDF so you can print your own Take Your Pick Tool label and a PDF tutorial with the complete supply list.
Take Your Pick Tool Box Tutorial –
And I’ve given you cutting measurements in the PF for both the magnetic flap I’ve shown you and the non magnetic flap. Making it easy to create the version you’d like for your space.
The printable label is in both Blackberry Bliss and Basic Black so you can choose. And there are two sizes too for the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies or Tailored Tag Punch. Simply print on Whisper White card stock.
Today’s card is the final project we made during my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and it is a fancy fold. I love the fact that we can create 3d cards using just ink and card stock! For me it’s one of the things that make paper crafting so much fun!
The Dashing Deer Bundle of products coordinates with this month’s Host Special – the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper which is perfect for projects like this since it contains multiple sheets of the same patterns. The images in this set are lovely, but when teamed up with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies your options are endless.
This card uses a fancy fold called the Easel Fold and I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial show how this quick and easy fold is created for you along with a printable PDF.

After watching the video do you want to make one too?
Well you’re in luck since I’ve created a PDF for you with step by step instructions to create this card along with a complete supply list too.
And today I thought I’d share some photos from the event with you.
Of course there was lots to see since we had a table with all the Designer Series Papers and some of the products you could touch and feel.
A table where you could see my upcoming Holiday Extravaganza Gifts & More projects. I’ll be sending out more information about this class room – make sure you are on my Newsletter List HERE so you can get all the details.
And of course some stamping fun!
Want to see more photos including my display boards with tons of cards? Why not stop by my Stamp with Jini’s facebook page and check it out? And while your there why not like my page so you’ll see projects & more that I share on facebook?
Enjoy! And if you love this card you’ll want to be sure to stop back next week when I’ll be sharing more cards made with this bundle!
I’ve got another project from my Holiday Catalog Kick Off for you – and a couple more Tutorials too! I originally designed this card for my Team Retreat in August, but couldn’t resist sharing it with you too!
This card is a wow with it’s texture and shimmer, that are created with a Copper Shimmer Mist, torn edge and Corrugated layers. And it’s so easy to do!
I’ve created a couple of tutorials for you. The first is a PDF for the card so you can recreate it for yourself it includes both a complete supply list and directions.

Check out this short little video where I show you how you can create your own Shimmer Mist.

Once you play with the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon you’ll want some too – it’s to die for. And the Copper Shimmer Paint! So many ways to use this stuff – you can even use an Uninked Stampin’ Spot (141822) to create your own little Copper ink pad! How cool is that?
On to a couple of things you’ll want to know that are time sensitive:
Did you know that Fast Fuse is back? But it’s only While Supplies Last!
If you’re like me, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . .since Stampin’ Up! retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. Stampin’ Up! took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.
Whoo! hoo! So you won’t want to delay in ordering yours, since it while supplies last!
Items Approaching Not-Orderable Status
Here’s what Stampin’ Up! has told us.
Sales for the following holiday catalog products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of back orders. It will be at least 30 days before these items are back in stock.
147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack 147807: Chicken Wire Elements
These products will remain available until Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (MT); they will then be placed in not-orderable status. After that you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when these products are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Explanatory note: Costs incurred by backorders can be in the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars; therefore, after weighing the variables, we occasionally must make the decision to temporarily turn off an item number rather than permit back orders to accrue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, putting a product in not-orderable status while we wait for the stock to replenish allows the company to hold costs down.
