Saying goodbye to Painted Harvest

Today I’m sharing a tutorial for a card made with one of my favorite stamps that is retiring. The Painted Harvest set is photopolymer so it’s easy to line up and the 2-step images in this set are very forgiving since you don’t have to line them up perfectly either.

Pick a color pallet that includes a few colors like this project does or use just one color to create shades and depth – either way you’ll love the look since this stamp set does all the work for you with it’s built in shading and watercolor feel.

While I used more of a this project has more of a “autumn” feel to it change up the Cajun Craze for Daffodil Delight and you’ll have a “summer” feel to your project. Don’t you love how simply changing color gives you a whole new look?

If you’d like to make this card I’ve got a tutorial with the complete supply list and measurements for you.

Painted Poppies & More

Memorial Day always makes me think of red poppies and so today I thought I’d share a couple of card using the Painted Poppies stamp set.

This first fun fold cards has been stamped in Poppy Parade and Old Olive classic Ink. The mats are done in Early Espresso for a softer feel than Basic Black would give you.

And this next card uses our Granny Apple Green Classic Ink and the Poppy Parade Light Stampin’ Blends to color the poppies.

Bright and cheerful and perfect for this week. If you love this Designer Series Paper that was used on both these cards you’ll find it on our Last Chance List. The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper is filled with lovely patterns and is only available while supplies last or until June 2nd. So why not stop by my Online Store and see all the items that will be leaving on the 2nd?

How to Reserve yours?

You’ll need to email me (StampwithJini@gmail.com) or call me (706 754-7124) to hold your spot ASAP, since there isn’t a lot of time before I need to place the order on June 3rd so you get yours as soon as possible after the catalog goes live.

EMAIL me directly at StampwithJini@gmail.com with your information listed below to save your spot in the share: (Note: For multiple shares and/or swatch books I’ll invoice postage the least expensive way using the priority options– If you prefer feel free to contact me for a shipping quote… Flat Rate packaging can hold quite a bit).

Please include the following information in your email:

1.  Full Name

2.  Mailing Address (US only)

3.  Indicate how many Paper Shares and/or Design Tool & DSP Swatch Book sets you would like to reserve

4.  Email for PayPal invoicing

When your shares/swatch book order fills, I will email a PayPal invoice for payment process (around May 27th).  I will then place my order with Stampin’ Up! once payment is received for the shares/swatch book.

PayPal is easy — and a PayPal account is not required to make your payment.  Just an email address and credit/debit card.  When you receive your PayPal invoice by email, you can choose to pay using your PayPal funds or by a credit/debit card.  Simply follow their instructions to make your payment via the method that is most convenient for you. It should be simple!

And of course, if you live locally – just let me know if you prefer to pick up your items rather than pay for the shipping and I’ll invoice you accordingly.

NOTE:  The first share/swatch books if placed on June 3rd can be expected in about 2 weeks after I place the order. Here is how my paper shares/swatch books work… first I save your spot and collect your payment, then I place the order, receive the order, cut and package the paper, package up your swatch book/share for mailing and then take them to the Post Office to ship.

Covid-19 Reminder: I will do my best to do everything I can to expedite your order. COVID19 has affected shipping times. If it causes back orders please be aware that Swatch Books & Paper Shares will not ship until all paper has been received.

If you love this idea but missed out on my earlier Design Tool & Swatch Books I do have a 2020 January – June Mini ($22) and 2019 Annual Catalog set ($26) that are available to purchase at this reduced price. Shipping not included.

Friend Like You Card Tutorial

Today’s card is bright and cheerful and great for summer

So what do you think? Love the summer time feel – we are just starting to heat up here in North Georgia and with Memorial Day right around the corner I’m looking forward to getting back in the pool. (That is once we get the new liner installed, our old one decided to give up on us last week as we were preparing to open it.)

Here is my tutorial for you so you can make some too and spread a little sunshine

Friend Like You Card Tutorial PDF

I love the Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay combination that I used for this project. However, after I made it I realized that the Bright Color Collection Paper was no longer available, you may already have some which is great. If not the good news is we’ll have a new stack of patterns in the Brights Color Collection (152487) available in June when the 2020 Annual Catalog launches, so you can get some then. Or if you don’t want to wait check out the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (retiring 149489) which has a great Coastal Cabana pattern in it and it’s available at a fantastic price while it lasts!

Enjoy!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Friend Like You (149237)

Inks: Soft Suede (147115/115663), Bermuda Bay (147096/131156), and Granny Apple Green Classic Ink (147095)

Paper: Brights Collection Designer Series Paper (Retired 147001), Coastal Cabana (131297), and Whisper White Card stock (100730)

Accessories: 2 1/4″ Circle Punch (143720) and Banner Triple Punch (138292)

To a Wild Rose

Love roses? How about yellow ones? These were always my mom’s favorite growing up since I dad would get them for her when they were first married.

The To a Wild Rose stamp set (149452) was used to stamp this bright and cheerful card. And the color really pops with it’s Pineapple Punch and Daffodil Delight Combination. And since this stamp set is a photopolymer set it’s easy to line up the two-step images to create wonderful color and depth when stamping.

I love the way the Pineapple Punch has been teamed up with the Shaded Spruce leaves. Wondering how the focal point leaves were done? Well it’s our Watercolor Paper. The outline of the leaves were stamped and then a wash of color was added to create this soft look. This mirrors the stamped background images that aren’t popped up, those were stamped with shades of the Daffodil and Shaded Spruce. Cool right?

Why not stop by my Online Store and check out the 2018-2020 In Color Pineapple Punch and the money saving To a Wild Rose Bundle (151073) before it is gone along with all the other retiring items – you can still get this wonderful color while supplies last or until June 2nd. After that all the items on our Last Chance List will be going away.

Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a tutorial with your for a fun summer themed card.

Saying goodbye to Music from the Heart

When I saw this stamp set last fall I just new I had to have it. Not only did Dawn do a fantastic job of designing her set, but my daughter is a band director so I knew I’d use it for all kinds of projects. And it hasn’t disappointed – it’s got tons of versatility! Check out these cards using the set.

This first one uses our Pretty Peacock and Blackberry Bliss along with some punches too.

The Timeless Label Punch (149516) has been used to punch out the sentiment and then a second punched piece was cut in half to create this layer of layer under it. Such a quick and easy way to layer when using a punch. The piano sets on a Blackberry Bliss piece punched using the Starburst Punch (Retiring 143717). And our must have Layering Circle Dies (141705) were used to cut out the piano and the larger Basic Gray circle. A few Rhinestones are scattered around the card front for a bit of bling – don’t you love the face that we have packed of rhinestones ready to go like this card uses? Check out the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (retiring 149494) for a great selection of colors.

This next card also uses the piano image, this time done in Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral for a pop of color using the Label Me Lovely Punch (151296) using the same technique to create the mat.

Do you recognize the Designer Series Paper pattern? It’s from the very popular Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (retiring 151319) pack of paper.

And finally this last card uses our fun Melon Mambo and Black for it’s color pallet.

Bright bold and fun – and check out the Noble Peacock Rhinestones again (Retiring 149494). Told you it was packed with colors!

So what do you think? Love music or know someone who does? If you haven’t gotten yours you’ll want to get it now before it’s gone for good. Stamp sets were only guaranteed until the 15th of May, so after today it will be like the other products on our Last Chance List and only available while supplies last!

Why not take a few minutes to check things out and get your favorite 2018-2020 In Colors and other products before they are gone.

Why not check out the Last a Lifetime Bundle (Retiring 153736), the Bundle which saves you 10% is on the Retirement List.

After the sentiment has been heat embossed and the Lasting Elegance Dies (151475) have been used to cut out the frame and floral images. I love the ways that you can build different looks with this set of dies.
