Many Mates

What is Many Mates? It’s a great sentiment set with great greetings and a great option for teaming up with your favorite image sets since it covers all kinds of occasions.

This set also comes with a great set of detailed dies, perfect for creating wonderful backgrounds and edges. Check out these first two cards using the dies.

Done in traditional red, white and blue this card has a classic feel to it and the pop of gold that was used with the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (152155) and ribbon from the Boho Indigo Product Medley (153132/153925) give it a, well I think a navel feel, but maybe that’s just me.

This next card has great texture to it with it’s layers

The Tasteful Label Dies (152886) were used to layer the sentiment along with the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder (152718).

And if you are into clean and simple this next card might be just your thing. It uses our Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper 6×6 stack (152486) and the Magenta Madness 1/4″ Ribbon (153623). For a great female look.

Such a great layout – swap out the Designer Series Paper to create any kind of feel, it’s so simple. Don’t you love our Designer Series Papers and the quick pop of color they give us?

Enjoy!

Celebrating Sunflowers with our 2020 In Colors

Sunflowers. Ahh, how they bring back memories. As a child my mother would plant sunflowers in her garden and though out the growing season I would stand next to them to mark their growth. They quickly towered over me and I was always amazed by at just how tall they would get. My mother even took a picture of me wearing my favorite yellow rain jacket and hat next to them one summer when I was about 3. When they were done for the season, we dried them so that we could let the birds eat the seeds during the long winter months in Wisconsin. I guess the fact that I was 3 might be one of the reasons they seem so tall! LOL! But when I saw this set it made me think of that picture from so long ago.

Celebrate Sunflowers

So today I thought I’d share some cards using our new 2020 In Colors made with this stamp set and it’s coordinating dies. These first two cards use the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (145286) to add to the design.

Celebrate Sunflowers In Colors

Done in Just Jade and Bumblebee. And this next one uses our Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness to make the sunflower pop!

Celebrate Sunflowers In Colors

The tag was done using our new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883). And if you need a quick card check out this next one using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (146912) and Blends to color the center.

Celebrate Sunflowers In Colors

And last but not least a fun technique card.

Celebrate Sunflowers In Colors

First the images were stamped in Bleach, the leaves cut out, and then the card was assembled. This simple technique is quite striking and I love how the beach works differently with each color card stock. The In Color Designer Series Paper was used for the pop of Magenta Madness on the dies. and of course those fun little In Color Enamel Dots. I just love them with their glossy shine.

So which one is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Just a bit of Stampin’ Up! news:

IMPORTANT Stampin’ Up! is launching our new websites on August 4th.   The links taking your directly to the product in my Online Store may not work as normal. They may simply work by taking you to my store but not to the product itself.    If you have any issues placing an order with me please let me know.  I’m happy to help.

Please remember these two very important things: When placing an order in the Online store: Please confirm you are shopping with me and that my name is listed as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (The new system will allow you to check out as a guest and bypass choosing a demonstrator. If that is the case I won’t get your order information and I won’t be able to mail catalogs, gifts, etc.).  My name is listed as Jini Merck and I live in Clarkesville, Georgia.

Since this is a NEW website, your bookmark and auto fill passwords may not work.

If that is the case you’ll want to create a new bookmark and sign in that way, saving it again to your password safe if you use one. Also, because of this your password may not work.  If that happens you will need to reset it. Because it is a new website and we are using a new email system for it, when you go to reset your password, the link emailed to you may go in your spam folder.  So you’ll want to check that if you don’t see it right shortly after you request it.

Please know that I’m here to help in any way as always. There may be a few bugs to start with in the new Online Store, so if you prefer for me to place your order for you I can. We can get through this together as always.   

Thanks and as always I appreciate you choosing me as your Demonstrator!

Spot Light on the new Buttery Bumblebee

Soft and mellow the new In Color Bumblebee is a lovely new color to add to your collection. It’s part of the five new 2020-2022 In Colors that I’m highlighting this week and can be purchased on it’s own or part of the In Color Ink Pad Collection (154597). It also an assortment pack of card stock (153074) which makes it a great place to start building a color pallet.

Check out these lovely monochromatic cards that are sure to please. While they all use different stamps the Bumblebee gives them a warm buttery feel. This first card uses the Tasteful Touches Bundle (154098) and is teamed up with our Basic Black Card stock (121045) and ink. A little texture has been added with the Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder (152718) and In Color Designer Series Paper. I think would make a great masculine card. What do you think?

Bumblebee Tasteful Touches

This next card also uses the Tasteful Touches Bundle but it’s been teamed up with our Whisper White card stock this time.

Bumblebee Tasteful Touches

Basket of Blooms

I love flowers during the summer. It brings me back to my childhood and walking through my Aunt Adeline’s yard which had what seemed like acres of flower beds and my Grandma’s front flower bed. Both of them loved flowers and their flower beds were so carefully manicured. While toiling in flower beds isn’t my cup of tea, I do enjoy the pop of color they bring to my yard and since it also brings the hummingbirds I always try and put some baskets and pots around my patio and porches. A more limited approach I know, but a much better for my allergies since although my mother tried for years I just don’t have a green thumb, that was passed on to my son.

So today’s cards reminds me of those wonderful ladies who have been gone along time now but are never far from my thoughts when I enjoy a wonderful splash of color from a flower bed.

This first card uses our new In Colors Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Bumblebee found in the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486).

And this next one teams up the In Color Designer Series Paper (153070) with Gorgeous Grape flowers. It uses the simple paper piecing technique. Do do this you’ll simply stamp the image onto your Designer Series Paper, this time they used the wood pattern from the In Color stack and fussy cut with your paper snips. So simple, but a great technique to use on your projects.

Isn’t it fun the way the flowers on the card front give a border that highlights the pattern on the inside of the card?

This next card uses the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder (152718) to add a bit of texture.

The flowers were colored in with out new 2020-2022 In Color Stampin’ Blends. Who doesn’t love the addition of these new colors to our Stampin’ Blends option?

And finally some soft subtle cards. Done in Highland Heather and Petal Pink this first card also uses the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder to add some texture along with the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon (153658)

And this final card uses a combination of Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight, and Sahara Sand

The Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon (150446) add a special touch with it’s sparkle.

I can’t pick a favorite can you?
