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.

Not only is it bright and bold, when you team it up with a 2 step stamp set like To a Wild Rose, you’ll get a wonderful color with lots of depth. Check out this month’s Thank you card using the set.

Like it? This project is one of those that Stampin’ Up! has included in our quarterly Demonstrator resource, Stampin’ Success. I just changed it up a bit. I love the fact that we get tips and projects to help us grow as stampers and Demonstrators. And everyone who has placed an order with me in July will be receiving one of these cards!

Beautiful Perennial Essence Suite

This Suite of products is just striking with it’s rich colors and images – the Designer Series Paper itself is beautiful all by itself. But when you team it up with the other products in the Suite you have soooo many choices to create with! If you haven’t seen the Suite you can find it on page 106-108 of the 2019 Annual Catalog.

Want to see some projects made with the products found in the Suite? I’ve got 7 great cards to share with you today. All with a different twist with this stamp set.

The Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock (149101) used on these first projects is wonderful to work with.

And the Perennial Essence Floral Centers (149442) are not only self stick but have a wonderfully natural look to them. They are perfect to use on your Daisy Lane projects too!

Quick and easy this card uses the Story Label Punch (150076) to frame the sentiment.

And since the Floral Essence Stamp set is a has separate stamps for the flowers centers you can create all kinds of combinations.
