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.

Enjoy the Moment

I love love taking a look through my Annual Catalog to inspire me all year round and with the 24 Hour Stamp Sale that starts tomorrow it’s a great day to check out all our Cling Stamp sets such as the Enjoy the Moment set (154452) found on page 26. This set has some great nature inspired images and year round sentiments too.

Check out these lovely cards made with this set. This first card is done in great masculine colors.

The Night of Navy and Early Espresso are tied together with the Gold Fine Art Ribbon (154561) that has a great earthy feel to it and a bit of shimmer with the gold thread. And how about this next card?

This card uses a warm color pallet made up of Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso and some Copper Foil Paper (142020). The Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) adds some texture along with the Stitched Rectangles (151820) ad Ornate Frames Dies (150664).

Want a softer look? How about this last card done in shades of green?

This card pulls all of its colors together with the bit of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807) behind the stamped images. The Soft Sea Foam, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen create a calming feel while the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (152709), Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon (155722) and Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder adds some texture to the project.

This is one of my favorite sets from the Annual Catalog and great news for just 24 Hours it will be on sale! You’ll want to make sure to check out all our Cling stamp sets from the Annual Catalog in our Stamp Sale that starts Wednesday, October 20th!

Team Fun, Artic Bears & More

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather. We had a warmer than normal, but beautiful sunny week for fall break. How about you? Since I didn’t share with you last week, I thought I would share some of the projects from my October Team Meeting. During our monthly team meeting we meet and stamp together along with swapping a project too. I’ll start with this card made with the Artic Bears stamp set (156428) from the Mini Catalog on page 39.

This card is a CASE (copy and share everything) from the catalog, CASEing is a great way to create when you need something quickly or are just getting started. And this next project is a fun 3D made with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and Artistically Inked stamp set (154542).

The sentiment has been heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder (155555) and the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (155465) adds some texture and interest. Do you see the little 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (155571)? These jewels are so much fun and add a bit of shimmer and shin to any project. And how about this next card using the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (156478) and Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)?

Isn’t it just great for sending during the fall holidays? And how about a fun Triangle Front Flap card using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718).

Some texture has been added not only with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317), but also with the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) and Opal Rounds (154289).

We have tons of fun together and I love to see what everyone is crafting at home. How about you? Do you enjoy sharing and stamping with others? If so, joining my group might be just the thing for you or how about a class or two? Joining is a great option for anyone since you will you get to purchase your favorite Stampin’ Up! products at a discount. You can learn more about my group the Blue Mountain Stampers HERE and of course, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me by email at StampwithJini@gmail.com.
