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.

Plentiful Plants

Yesterday I shared with you a fun bundle called Welcoming Window and so today I thought I’d share another great set that’s all about plants, the Plentiful Plants Bundle (155688).

This bundle is all about the plants and has a wonderful collection of coordinating products that go with it. You can get them all in one easy to order Suite, Bloom Where You’re Planted making creating quick and simple. This first card uses the wonderful Paper Lattice (155697) to highlight the fun book end fold for this card.

I just love the bright pop of Melon Mambo to draw your attention to the sentiment. And this next card uses the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper (155696) as a back drop for these lovely plants. The sentiment is pulled from another set and uses the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883) to highlight it along with the Genial Gems (155500). You’ll find yourself reaching for these gems over and over with their soft shades and sprinkle of gold.

And if you are wondering about the Baker’s Twine it’s from our Essential Pack (155475) which contains 4 colors for your crafting needs. And if you love the plant hanger why not check out our NEW Macrame 3D Embossing Folder (155435)? I’m probably dating myself, but when I think of hanging plants I think of macrame, lol. It’s great to see this option coming back again as I love to hang my house plants.

So what do you think? Have a favorite set? Is it yesterdays Welcoming Window or today’s Plentiful Plants? Or both?

Today’s the last day to sign up for my Seascapes Class in August

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 August 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 – contact me for a shipping quote…a 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 July 26th).  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 August 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.

I’ll do my best to fill these orders as quickly as possible. I’ll be placing my order first thing on August 3rd. However, if there are back orders, orders will ship when everything has been received.

What’s Cookin’ this summer?

I don’t know about you but the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy in the kitchen putting up those fresh garden vegetables and trying new recipes with them too. Some have been a hit and some not so much, but that is the way it goes right? For those of you who love being in the kitchen creating great dishes we’ve got a great new bundle for you.

Check out these fun cards using this bundle of products the choices are endless! I love the bold background for this first card. Do you recognize it? It’s the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder (155435) creating all that texture.

And how about the classic apron? I remember so well spending time with my Grandmother who always had an apron handy for me. After she was gone I wore those aprons for years as I worked by myself baking, a fond remembrance of my youth and those times we spent together. This apron was created by using the Basic Borders Die (155558) simply by starting with the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (Host 155426) and cutting one side with the die and then the other.

The apron trim is also one of the dies that you’ll find in the set along with the table on this next card.

So what do you think? Know someone who would enjoy receiving a card made with this set and a the little reminder that happiness IS homemade? Why not stop by my online store and check out this wonderful bundle and other products for your crafting needs?

Bamboo Beauty

This stamp set is simply elegant and has some wonderful sentiments using a lovely font.

Not only does the Bamboo Beauty stamp set (155478) have great year round sentiments the images a quick and easy to work with too. Check out these lovely cards made using the set.

This first card is quick as easy when used with our new Soft Succulent Classic Ink (155778/155779) and teamed up with the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper stack (155641). And how about this next card?

The background has been first Spritzed (126185) with Pear Pizzazz and then images have been stamped using Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz and Gray Granite. A couple of Champagne Rhinestones add a bit of shine (151193) and the Baker’s Twine (155475) a bit of texture.

This next card teams up the Bamboo Beauty stamp set with the Watercolor Shapes stamp set (156968) to create this striking card.

And finally this breath taking card that uses an emboss resist technique for the back drop that has been stamped using the Stacked Stone Background stamp (152556).

Done in shades of Garden Green (147089/102059) it is simply elegant.

So what do you think? Want to take a look? You can find this set on page 49 of the Annual Catalog or in my Online Store.

Stellar Birthday

With the space race in the news the last couple of weeks I thought I’d share some cards using the Stellar Birthday stamp set (154461) for our future little astronauts and the possibility of their one day reaching for the stars.

This set is filled with fun images and quirky sentiments.

Check out these cards made using the stamp set. This first card uses a fun using bleach.

The Night of Navy card stock back ground has been spritzed (126185) to create this two tone effect and then Clear Wink of Stella (141897) has been added to create some shimmer. Shimmery Crystal Effects (150892) has also been added to the face of the astronaut for a bit more shine and create a glass effect. This fun bleach technique creates different effects depending on what color card stock you start with making it a lot of fun. Why not give it a try?

This next card has some movement since it uses our fun new Give it a Whirl Dies (154336).

It creates the ability to show several different images on the wheel that you can whirl through

making it a lot of fun to create and receive.

If you haven’t seen these dies you’ll want to be sure to check them out since they are a great set of dies that can be used with lots of different stamp sets.

I really like the way that Stampin’ Up! has given these type of independent die sets in the 2021 Annual Catalog that can be used for all kinds of crafting needs.

Don’t have an Annual Catalog and would like one? If you don’t have a current demonstrator email me your name, address, and phone number to StampwithJini@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to mail you a catalog.

Check out these 3 cards made using the Season’s Blessings Bundle (155485) – each one shows off a different way to use the set.

The coordinating Seasonal Basket Dies (1155960) make this bundle a breeze to create fun cards with.

Done in wonderfully warm and rich fall colors of Bumblebee, Cajun Craze, and Crumb Cake. So what do you think? You can find this stamp set on page 94 of the Annual Catalog. Why not check it out today?

Timeless Tropical Treats

Love quick and easy treats? If so our Ombre Gift Bags might be just the think you are looking for since they make creating a treat quick and easy. I was inspired to create my own little gift bag by a swap that I received (you can see it HERE).

Make them up ahead and simply slide your goodie inside when you’re ready.

Bags are 4 3/4″ x 7″ so they’ll hold quite a bit too. This batch I whipped up for a little Team gift for our Meeting, I filled them with a sweet little treat for my along with a little something I picked up on the Maui Incentive Trip in May.

They were a hit for sure.

Want to see how I made them? I’ve got a quick little video tutorial and PDF for you.
