#imbriningbirthdaysback October’s Cards

Each month I send out Birthday Cards to family, friends and you! So I thought I’d share with you my this month’s card and a tutorial for it.

I was really feeling fall when I designed this card and it’s reflected in the colors – don’t you love the way the Painted Autumn stamp set makes the image feel water colored?

I’ve also made a tutorial for you in case you’d like to make some too. After all who doesn’t love getting snail mail in their box? There is nothing better than a hand stamped birthday card,  right?

Hello Life Mini File Folder Treat Holder

This past weekend was my second Annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Winter Weekend and I’ve got to say it was a blast and the creative energy was flowing shortly after we unpacked! I’ll try to share more about this fun team event with you later when I’ve caught back up on my sleep! LOL

Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you this quick and easy Valentine themed treat that I made first.

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (1)

So quick and easy and it holds a pack of gum –

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (3)

I used the Hello Life stamp set (137136) that you can find on page 6 of the Occasions Catalog and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779) from page 5.

While the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper has a Valentine feel to it on one side, the great part is the other side is neutral enough for any occasion! This pattern that I’ve used for this project is a perfect example.

I love the little sentiments found in this set and since it is Photopolymer it is sooo easy to line up and layer the images.

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (2)

Can you see the cute little heart on the top of my file folder flap? It’s stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe and adds a little interest to the flap (since it is tone on tone.)

With the rain today my camera is just not real happy. And of course photos just don’t do projects the justice they deserve – great news projects are always on display in my classroom during events so you can see just how great they are for  yourself!

If you’d like to learn how to make these cute little treats click HERE for my video tutorial to show you how.


Stamp Set: Hello Life (137136)

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (132708), and Crisp Cantaloupe (131176), Calypso Coral Classic Ink (126983)

Paper: Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779), Crisp Cantaloupe (131298), Calypso Coral (122925), Basic Black (121045), and Whisper White card stock (100730)

Accessories: Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine (135636), Envelope Punch Board (133774), 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (119854), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch (119861), and 1 3/8″ Circle Punch (119860)

Marvelous Metallic Pumpkins

I love to learn new techniques. Do you? Today’s project combines two things I love techniques and the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. Whoo hoo! I find myself using my Blendabilities all the time – they are just so much fun to color with and I’m not really a coloring type of person normally. But I’m finding coloring with my Blendabilities is very relaxing and  I always feel so accomplished when I’m finish coloring an image LOL.

I’ve used the Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating Fun Fall Framelits that are available in a money saving Bundle (137628) for this project. This is such a great set for the fall, it’s not such for Halloween as you can see.

marvelous metallic pumpkins

So wondering what and how I did this? It is sooooo easy and it really gives your project a WOW effect. I’m hoping you can see the wonderful look that this little pumpkin has in my photo.

Want to learn this really quick and easy technique? I’ve made a quick video for you. So without delay – Here is my Marvelous Metallic Pumpkins Video Tutorial.

Love it? All you need is a sold image for this project and you’re set to go – the ideas are endless. I haven’t noticed there is any problem so far with my Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers – The only tip is lighter hand when coloring is better since the StazOn Ink is also alcohol based too much pressure picks up the StazOn. That is why for your regular projects you’ll want to use our Memento Tuxedo Black Pad.

Want to learn more about Stampin’ Blendabilities? I’ve got a Blend with Friends Class coming up in October. Not only will you get to practice with the Blendabilities Markers, but the class includes a bundle of products that will get you started. Sound interesting?

Why not contact me today (706 754-7124 or stampwithjini@gmail.com) to learn more about the Blend with Friends Class or you can click HERE to see my full calendar of events. I think you’ll really love using our Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers once you try them and they are such a great deal too!


Stamp Set: Fall Fest (135194), For All Things (135152/135155), and Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517)

Ink: White Cotton StazOn Pad (106960), Tangerine Tango (1269416), Sahara Sand (126976), Bermuda Bay (131171), and Crushed Curry Classic Ink Pads (131173)

Slip Free Yarn Hangers

Today’s post is one that is a non stamping project, but I thought you may enjoy it. Lately I’ve had several people ask me to share how I make these Slip Free Yarn Hangers that I’ve made for family and friends. So I thought to myself it would be easier to show you with a video tutorial.


These slip free yarn hangers are easy to make, use up those left over skeins I’ve got laying around the house, and keep my hands busy so I don’t snack while watching TV at night! (My weight loss program at its finest since late night snacking is a tough one for me – LOL)

My daughter has recently discovered the benefits of these after she took her batch that I made as a Christmas gift to college. No more tank tops on the floor of her college closet. She has recently said to me  “These are great. Can you make me another 20?”

So I’m looking for more of those wire hangers. The biggest problem I have is finding two that are the size shape and size hiding in my stash.

Hope you enjoy my tutorial. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. And if you make some – why not share your creations with me on my Facebook page? I’d love to see your slip free yarn hangers!

Wow, has it already been a couple of days since I shared with you? Today’s card was so much fun creating that I wanted to share it and a the Creating Clouds with Stampin’ Spritzers video I made with you before time slipped away again from me today – lol.

This card is one of my favorites that I’ve made recently since it uses one of my favorite products – the Stampin’ Spritzer (item 126185). I just have so much fun with these things I don’t want to stamp once I start.

It’s Wicked Cool

I made this card a while ago and have been meaning to share it with you. I love the little witch’s feet in the Wicked Cool Stamp set, don’t you? I guess I’m dating myself but they always remind me of the shoes sticking out under Dorothy’s house at the beginning of the Wizard of Oz. I remember being so scared watching that move as a child. I ramble, anyhow back to my card.

Coloring directly on the stamp is a great way to color any image and that is what I’ve done here with the Wicked Cool image.  Can you guess which punch I’ve used for the broom? It’s the Owl Builder – You can use that punch for all kinds of things! (Click HERE to see my recent “Got Milk” Tutorial using the Owl Builder Punch.)  And did you notice the Basic Jewels? I just used my orange Sharpie ® to color my Basic Rhinestone. Yep, now you can any color Basic Rhinestones you desire what a great tip, huh?


Stamp Set: Wicked Cool

Inks: Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Big Shot, Spider Web, Woodgrain, and Chevron Embossing Folders, Apothecary Accents Framelits, ¼” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones and Sharpie ®
