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.

Send a bit of love with the Country Bouquet Bundle

Today’s cards are a lovely way to say to someone special that you love and care about them. Not only does the Country Bouquet Bundle (160383) include wonderful sentiments and images it also includes a punch! I love the ease of a punch!

And this Bundle is part of a Suite of products (160390) that coordinate so you can start creating quickly too.

Check out these fun cards using the bundle. This first card uses the punch as a focal point for a sweet and easy card. The ribbon and sequin adds a bit of texture.

And this next card uses the punch to punch out the images from the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper (160375). A bit of the die from the Two Tone Floral Die (159181) is tucked behind the Nature’s Prints Label Die (158800).

Don’t you love how you can use products that you already have with new ones? And of course if something goes on back order you can try the individual items or wait until they come back in stock. If you’d like me to notify you when they do just let me know by dropping me a line at StampwithJini@gmail.com

Head over heels for Love Cats

If you love our 4 legged furry family members or know someone who does you’ll enjoy the Love Cats stamp set (160410) found in the Mini Catalog on page 13. This stamp set is filled with fun images and puny sentiments.

Cute, right? Check out these cards I received in my recent swap using the set. They both use the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper (160375) with it’s cute little heart pattern sheets. This first card is done in Sweet Sorbet and Soft Suede.

I love it’s quick and easy layout and fun fold that allows the peek of Designer Series Paper to show. This card base is a quarter sheet of the Sweet Sorbet for the pop of color behind the Basic White layer that creates the fun fold. The 5 1/2″ x 7″ Basic White card stock has been scored on the 4″ mark to create the offset. Simply apply the strip of Designer Series Paper on the inside and you’ve got this great pop of color. The Stitched with Whimsy Dies (155314) highlight our focal point add some fun interest too.

And this next card uses a simple folding technique in order to allow the image to shine!

Done in our Memento Tuxedo Black and using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (152709) this is a great card for someone just building their stamping supplies. Punches always make adding the sentiments so easy and also add some dimension. And of course you I love the fact Stampin’ Up! gives us ideas in it’s catalogs too. Do you ever use the ideas to start creating? I know I do, if you’ve never tried why not give it a go? We call it casing – copy and share everything 🙂

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a quick treat box tutorial that I made using this stamp set.
