About Stamp with Jini

My name is Jini Merck and I'm a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends. For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people in your life. I live in Clarkesville which is in the North Georgia Mountains with my husband and two children. Although my family keeps me busy I enjoy the creativity of stamping and crafts and the fellowship stamping brings into my life. Spending time creativing cards and gifts for friends and family has been one of my favorite hobbies over the years.

Trimming the Town

With the holidays upon us we will all be trimming the town, or at least our little part of it and so today I thought I’d share some wonderful cards made using the Trimming the Town Suite of Products found on page 24 – 26 in the Mini Catalog.

Here are some cards for you. This first card highlights the bundle.

And this next card uses some simple stamping and our Red Rhinestones (146924)

And if you love the Triming the Town Designer Series Paper you’ll love this next card – it’s a no stamping card front.

Simply stamp the sentiment of choice on the inside and you’re all set!

Did you know not only is this suite of products a lot of fun but when you purchase the Coming Home Stamp set individually, as part of a bundle, or suite you’ll be helping someone. Stampin’ Up! is donating $3 from every set sold to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility.

How great is that?

Stamp Set: Coming Home (153500)

Paper: Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper (153491)

Toile Christmas & More

Cardinals. I love watching these birds with their bright pops of red dotting my yard and feeder. The Toile Christmas stamp set features the cardinal and is a lot of fun to color. Since it is a sketched image you’ve got lots of choices for coloring.

Check out these cards the first one has been done using our Stampin’ Blends for a bold image and

this next card uses our Water Color Pencils for a more subtle look.

And how about some more cards? These next cards use the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and the coordinating Pine Tree Punch making cards quick and easy!

The Still Scenes stamp set was used to create this lovely winter scene.

And the last card I’ll be sharing with you today is a fun fold card that highlights the Rustic Retreat stamp set. The sentiment piece locks the house panel closed and keep it in place.

This set has some wonderful all occasions sentiments in addition to the Christmas one you see here.

Enjoy!

Winter Woods

Today’s cards all use the Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating In the Woods Dies that can be found in the 2020 Annual Catalog. And it’s part of the products that will be on sale during our 24 Hour Merry & Bright Flash Sale tomorrow. This set has some wonderful tree images that can be used for all kinds of fall and winter projects, but today’s cards uses it for holiday cards.

This card uses our White Frost Shimmer Paint and the In the Woods Dies for the trees and snow. The die cut images are set on a backdrop of Whisper White cards stock that has been embossed with our Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I am hoping you can see the 3d effect this evergreen die has since it is just striking in person. Simply elegant.

This next card uses a fun fold and the panels have been embossed with our Winter Woods Embossing Folder from the Annual Catalog (152881).

This folder is great since it works so well with so many of our sets.

And how about some heat embossing? This next card is embossed in silver on Night of Navy Card stock and highlights the beautiful silver and white patterns of the Feels Like Frost 6×6 Designer Series Paper (150444)

Nature’s Beauty

This sketch style stamp set highlights winter images and our woodland creatures. It’s beautiful stamped or with added color. This is one of our stamp sets that you’ll find in our Annual Catalog.

Check out these lovely cards made with this stamp set. This first card uses simple stamping and a fun embossing folder technique.

Ink is applied to the embossing folder on the inside, this time the Woodland Embossing Folder (152881) and then run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. When the card stock is removed from the folder the ink is pressed in along with the design. How cool is that?

And fun fact did you know you can always tell which side the top of the folder is? Just look for the Stampin’ Up! logo.

This next cared uses our Early Espresso and Soft Suede to create this lovely tone on tone card.

The image and sentiment are stamped on Very Vanilla for a more subtle feel. And finally here is a fun technique card.

This background was created using our reinkers and water from a Stampin’ Spritzer. After the card stock has dried it was run through our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss using the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder (151801).

Team Fun at the OnStage@Home After Party

I love sharing with my team and coming home after a Stampin’ Up! event is no different. While this year we gathered virtually we still were able to gather for an After party and share the excitement of the NEW 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.

So I created these cute little flag holders using the Quite Curvy Bundle (156228) that is currently available. I just love these little sweet birds!

I used the colors from our OnStage@Home swag so everything coordinated

and was able to put the logo on the inside of these folders with the little flag sticky notes. We are going to need lots of sticky notes!!!

I also put together some little charms using some images from the stamp sets, the catalog, and logo. Each one was a bit different

but they all had one thing in common – a prize patrol number!

Things were all set up for a light lunch and an couple of hours with the team.

Of course, no team event is without stamping, so I had packets for everyone with their little team gifts waiting for them all their stamping spot.

We also had a table to share all the Product Purchase Premiere goodies – there is nothing like being able to touch and feel in person!

And of course I shared my copy of the real Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalogs that they could look at too.

We made 4 projects using new products from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

And of course while we stamped prize patrol numbers were called and prizes were given out!

Lots of smiling faces

Want to see our projects?

Not only did stamp together, we got to use the new Blending Brushes found in the Mini Catalog and learn a fun new technique too.

I’ll be sharing these projects with you later so stop back by to see my tutorials and videos for these projects and more!

So what do you think? Sound like fun? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right!

Team Time Fun

Each month we gather to stamp and share with each other and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun cards that my team members have created over the past 2 months. I can’t believe they got buried on my desk and I haven’t shared them with you before now.

These first 2 cards use the Country Home stamp set (147678) from the Annual Catalog that you can find on page 90. This first one uses the beautiful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) to choose it’s color pallet.

And both these cards have been colored with our Stampin’ Blends which gives them that great bold rich, color.

And here is fun fold card using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp set () and lovely Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (153520).

This card uses the fun impossible fold to create a card that pops up but mails flat.

And one using our Stitched Leaves Dies (153567) that has been teamed up with the colorful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) again.

I really like the way these dies have the stitched edging that can be used on negative images like this and on the positive images too.

A gratitude journal made with the lovely Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (152488) – done in 6×6 and filled with paper to fill. A page for each person to personalize or use it as a lovely book to use yourself.

This next project uses the Grace’s Garden stamp set (151513) and is a fun fold card.

That once again folds flat for mailing.

This next grouping of projects is for Christmas and I’ll continue with some more fun folds. First this easel card that uses the Sweetest Time Bundle (155169).

And last but not least Shirley shared some little wooden pumpkins she made using the technique we used during our Peak Princess Event. You can see more and the tutorial for that project about that HERE.

And how about some Christmas projects? This first card uses the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (153487) and teams it up with the beautiful Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper (152493)

And for a here is a fun fold teepee card using our Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (150444) with it’s beautiful images.

Champagne foil Sheets (144748) were cut out using the Forever Flourishing Dies (152714) and were used as a backdrop for the sentiment. This card also folds flat for mailing simply by undoing the well placed velcro dot.

And now for some fun 3d projects – A cute little box that holds a couple of nuggets using the Little Treats stamp set (153516).

And fun tags using a variety of the holiday stamp sets found in the Annual and Holiday catalog. Can you name them all?

There are 4 different stamp sets used for these tags. Don’t look if you are still guessing but here is the list. Detailed Doves (153406), Christmas Gleaming (150464), Merry Moose (150494), and Perfectly Plaid (149418). Hand made tags for your packages make them extra special and are a lot of fun to make!

whew… what did I tell you, lots of great projects! I’m truly blessed with such a great team to share and stamp with.
