Another Example

Published by at 3:39 pm under Stampin' Up!,Sympathy

I sincerely hope that you are not getting tired of seeing the same stamps used over and over.  One of the reasons why I do this is to provide you with different designs that hopefully inspire you to stamp.  I have to selfishly admit that the biggest reason I do this is because I just love the stamps!  I love using them over and over again, I never tire of them like I do some of my other stamps.  There aren’t too many stamps out there that do that for me.  Usually I use a stamp once or twice and then I’m done.   On this card, I used the wild flowers again, I cut the image in two and placed the main cluster of flowers in the upper left corner of the sentiment and the placed the other half of the image in the lower right corner.


I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the four corners of the Vintage Cream paper (PTI).  I used my Scor It to emboss the double lines (sorry, they’re not showing up well in the photo).  I also used the Cuttlebug to cut the four gold corners on gold mirror paper, doesn’t it look just like metal!  I used the negative pieces from the four corners for the gold swirls on the sentiment, I just love my “bug!”  I didn’t have ribbon to match the flowers and raspberry paper so I opted for a neutral cream that I purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments

    This is just beautiful Jerri! I love the gold paper corners (isn’t the CB terrific!), and the pink border punch. I’ve been looking for that one, but it remains elusive!

  2. Both of these cards are beautiful!

  3. Marilyn McFadden says:

    Your use of gold is just gorgeous on these cards. They look so elegant and would be special to receive.

  4. Becca says:

    Jerri, I for one will never get tired of anything you do!! You are such a superb artist and I love it that you get so much variety out of one stamp!

  5. Marcia says:

    Your cards are simply outstanding! I love the golden corners and cut out flowers and dry embossing. Oh my the colors are my personal favorites. I love your style for sure!

  6. Marsha says:

    Jerri, you can get away with using your MCL stamps over and over again, ’cause you always change up the color, positioning, or use of them. I, for one, never tire of seeing anything that you do. Yes, the gold mirror paper does look like metal. Gorgeous, as usual.

  7. Stamper Gail says:

    How could anyone ever get tired of seeing your lovely creations Jerri? Nope not me anyway! Love all the extra touches you added on this design. This is also one of my favorite stamps in the M&CL line.

  8. Kittie says:

    I would never, ever get tired of seeing you use the same stamp in several different projects. I love seeing all of your gorgeous work.

  9. Vicky Gould says:

    I don’t think I will ever get tired of looking at your beautiful creations, Jerri. Lovely, just lovely.
    I lost my husband last week and your blog and SCS have been life savers – keep those beauties coming – you are an inspiration!

  10. Joan Fricker says:

    Oh my this is so awesome. You can take something simple (like the Cuttlebug embossing) and make it looks so rich and beautiful. I love this!!!

  23. Carolen says:

    You are an inspiration!

  24. Cindy H. says:

    This is simply gorgeous!! It kind of looks like a different stamp because of the way you broke it apart and used it – so lovely! I’m going to try some of my Cuttlebug dies with the mirror paper – I really like how it looks! I’m also glad to know that I’m not the only one who saves the negative parts of a punch to reuse in another way:) TFS

  25. Chris Franks says:

    Wow, Jerri! That really does look like metal. I love to see the same stamps used in different ways. We all want to get the most out of the stamps we have and sometimes we just don’t think to cut them apart and position them differently. Thanks for the inspiration!

  26. Shirley Lee says:

    Your cards amaze me because they are always gorgeous. Can’t wait until the Me and Carrie Lou stamps are available again. Question: what did you use for the raspberry border on this card? Your attention to detail is unbelievable and appreciated.
    Looking forward to more cards and beauty.

    Nope! Not tired one tiny bit. I love seeing your creations. This card is amazing. I love the gold stickers on the corners. Such amazing little detailing that coordinates with the rest of the card. I looked for Me and Carrie Lou and found some on Ebay, but none that I wanted. I will wait for a post from you that they are available online, so don’t forget to tell us right away! Hugs to you Jerri -michelle

    P.S. Thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog. I dont’ know how you find the time to do it all -I am in awe!

  28. Nimue says:

    I LOVE seeing all the different things that one can do with the same stamp. Sometimes you see things you never would have thought of and an old stamp becomes brand new again. Thanks! – Nimmy

  31. Joan Ervin says:

    Oh, my, Jerri, I could look at your beautiful creations all night long….everything you do is so spectacular and you are so clever to use the same stamps in diffrent ways. Everything you design has a new and fabulous look!! I love the corners on this one and the bugged background….soooo awesome with the watercolored flowers and the pink edging along the top and bottom. Jaw droppin gorgeous, girlfriend!!!

  33. Cathy says:

    Jerri, I NEVER get tired of the same stamps…. they’re far too beautiful! I can’t wait until there is on-line ordering from Violette’s. I have a terrible feeling I’m going to be as addicted to Carrie Lou as you are!

    This card is positively gorgeous — so incredibly elegant. Love it!


  34. Shel9999 says:

    You just keep on using those same stamps. They are gorgeous, and everything you make is a WORK OF ART! Those gold corners are perfect here!

  35. Jerri, you are so darn talented!!!!!! This is so beautiful! Where do you buy the gold mirror paper and who makes it…..I’d love to buy some!


  36. Mary L. says:

    What does “TPC” stand for (what company did you get the mirror paper from) and where do you purchase “Me & Carrie Lou” stamps?
