Stamp with Jill is changing a little bit!


I am closing in on 12 years of stamping, sharing and blogging.  WOW!

Some of you have been with me since day one!  You have watched me grow as a stamper, my style evolve, and my various businesses change.  You have watched my family and my kids grow and my puppies change.  Thank you for all of your friendship and support!  

One thing that has not changed is my love and obsession for stamping and paper crafting.  And that is where my latest change is taking place.  Last October, FSJ merged with Spellbinders and my stamping store got bigger.  It has been so much fun expanding my paper crafting tools!  However, I am finding them a little limited in stamps and tools for my personal style.  

There are so many amazing paper crafting products out there.  You have seen some of them pop up here at  Until now,  they are all at different online stores making shopping way too hard for YOU.  (Umm…checking out at 5 separate stores is just stupid and not cost effective).  

After a few weeks of behind the scenes work I am now going to be primarily working with 3 companies.  They are:

Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson both offer almost all of the stamping companies like Altenew, My Favorite Things, HoneyBee Stamps, Lawn Fawn, Gina K, and many many MORE!  They even offer some Spellbinders too!  They also have exclusive store specific products and of course sales and coupons!  Plus a huge amount of Copic markers, dies, inks, adhesives and gorgeous papers.  Shopping at 1 or 2 stores is so much easier for you!

I am sure you are asking, how do you shop with me?  It’s EASY.  Just click the links here on my blog (or in my emails), shop online at your convenience, and I will get credit for the order. 

I will continue to create, blog and share my passion for stamping and paper crafting with you, just the brands and colors will be expanding even more.  SO MUCH FUN is ahead!


Some Coloring fun!

I have been busy working on coloring with my 30 day coloring challenge. I’m a little over halfway through and I have learned a few things. First coloring is relaxing, even for just 5 minutes. Practice makes your coloring improve. and finally I don’t have a lot of coloring stamps!

Now on to todays card. I have done a little shopping and one of my 1st purchases was this stunning stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Sketched Flowers. I have had my eye on it for months!

Here are the markers I used and how the coloring looks before becoming a card.

I just love this and you will be seeing more of this stamp set. If you have to have it click HERE or on any of the links below. The a HUGE stamp set with lots of versatility. (note: if it is “out of stock” be sure to get on the list by giving your email)

I chose the the Simon Says Stamp Tiny words sentiments for my card but you can see in the stamp set that there are lots of options.

Follow me on Instagram of you want to see all of my coloring projects so far. I never in a million years would have colored this many images. I have several cards made already too. I’ll be back tomorrow to share some more fun card making creations!

Every single thing to make this card is at Simon Says Stamp:

Easter Blessings: A FSJ Creative Team Blog Hop

The FSJ Creative team is blog hopping today! We are celebrating the Easter Blessings launch today!!! I have 4 beautiful cards to share with you using the Faithfulness Stamp set and dies.

Clean and simple for my first card share. I began by inking the top flower of the Faithfulness stamp set with Pineapple Smoothie ink. And the stems with Lemongrass ink. No fancy tools or techniques, just carefully tapping the ink pad onto the parts of the stamp. Tip: use the lighter color ink first. If you look close it’s not perfect and that’s what I was going for. A few splatters of sparkle silk finished the card.

Yum!! The chocolate bunny (Espresso ink on cocoa powder card stock) might be my personal favorite. The Create and Blooms prints paper is perfect for the bunny. The scallop frame is die cut with fancy edged rectangles etched dies. (another one of my favs!). The flowers are not a die!! They are the spring kisses embellishments!!

What says spring more than yellow flowers? I used the Create and Blooms prints paper and the scallop framed die (fancy edge rectangle dies) to highlight the beautiful sentiment and the summer branch die cut as an accent.

This little bunny was stamped with espresso ink on oatmeal cookie card stock. Love the simplicity of this card. The scallop A2 borderabilties dies allows just enough of the plaid print to show. All of the create and blooms prints paper designs are perfect for spring.

The stamp set is Zen Floral from Honey bee stamps. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! after I colored it, I took it and made it into the most beautiful clean and simple card.

The long sentiment is silver heat embossed from Simon Says Stamps “Big Thanks words”. I love long sentiment strips! The “Thanks” is the “Be Happy” stickers from FSJ. Quite a beauty!

The Coloring Challenge Creations

Oh man! I’m having lots of fun with this coloring challenge. Need more info on the challenge. click here. Love this Thinking of you card using one of the flowers and the sentiment from the FSJ February stamp of the month!

Carson’s Birthday Card! I tucked this in his care birthday care package since he’s away at school.

Clean and simple with a touch of Washi Tape. Another one of the of the sentiments and flowers from the FSJ February stamp of the month!

This GinaK floral stamp really pops on the A2 scallop dies from HoneyBee. (umm these are my new favorite layering tool)

How fun is this chef card using some plaid paper from GinaK? Of course Valentines day is just 6 days away and I think this one will be for my hubby.

Off to color some more. It’s getting easier to blend my copics! the more you use something the easier it gets to use! At this point, I have been using so many markers I have not been recording colors. They are literally scattered all over my stamping table.

So here are the main supplies for the above cards. If you prefer to check out at one store, Simon Says Stamp has most of these products!
