Jars of Love vintage card with Cupcakes & Carousels

Ok, I just had to share one of my favorite cards from the Build Your Stash card class by mail!  Check out this fun Sending Love card featuring the Jars of Love stamp set! When I originally started designing the class, I had been planning on focusing on the Better Together stamp set – because it is a great sentiment set – as well as the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack.  But when I pulled out this sunburst patterned paper from the pack, things just started going in a totally different direction.  And in the end, I felt the … Read More

Stampin' Up Eastern Palace Suite Preorder Samples

How fun is this?  Normally, the new Stampin’ Up annual catalog comes out on June 1st and so you would have to wait for the new catalog to go live to order any of the new goodies (well, unless you purchased the demonstrator starter kit, but that is a whole other fun thing!).  But this year, Stampin’ Up decided to get the party started early by releasing one of the suites early! Introducing the Eastern Palace Suite! This is a new suite that is coming out with the Annual Catalog but you can get your hands on it via one … Read More

Close up of Layering Ovals with the Fresh Fruit stamp set to get layered scallop ovals | Jennifer Blomquist - NWstamper.com

What do you get when you’ve made a bunch of projects but then totally slacked off on sharing them on the blog?  A mad dash to start posting them all so you can see the fun ideas while you can actually still get the products if you want to make it yourself.  Novel idea, huh? 😉 Today I wanted to share a card that I made for my Stamp Club that was inspired by a card by Kim Williams.  I loved the basics of her card and just simplified it down to this version which I think is just so … Read More

I’m back from OnStage Local in Shreveport, LA (this is like a regional conference for Stampin’ Up demonstrators)!

The Good:  A number of retiring items are discounted 15%-50% off! The Bad: Everything except stamps are only available while supplies last, and some items have already sold out!

Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker

Flourishing Phrases Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker - Jennifer Blomquist, NWStamper.com

Back when Stampin’ Up had Chalkboard Paper, we also got the White Chalk marker.  And I knew what to do with it… duh, you use a chalk marker on chalkboard paper!  🙂  But then, the chalkboard paper went away and the chalk marker remained, which made me think there had to be other great uses for this marker.  Since then, I found that it is great for all kinds of soft accents and touches on your cards.  My favorite version is Accent Coloring with the chalk marker on light brown paper, like I did in this card! I stamped the flourish … Read More
