This week some of the Spellbinders® designers and partners are participating in a blog hop AND you have a chance to win a Sapphire! Seriously. It's the cutest thing ever and you need one. I promise. Click on THIS LINK to find out how to enter to win!

In the meantime, I am sharing a card today that I created using some of the fabulous new Sapphire dies!

Hello Friend by Jennifer Ingle #spellbinders #JustJingle #cardmaking #giveaway

For this card I pulled out the Basic Squares, Basic Rectangles, and the Mini Hearts die sets. Why, yes, I do happen to be in love with these dies. Like, SUPER DUPER in love, dude. Save the date. For reals, though.

Hello Friend by Jennifer Ingle #spellbinders #JustJingle #cardmaking #giveaway

I cut the shapes in several colors before adhering them randomly onto my card. I made sure to emboss each piece (because Spellbinders® dies are MADE to cut and emboss and they rock like that) to add extra visual texture to the design. I absolutely LOVE how this one turned out. For reals.

Be sure to head on over to the Spellbinders® Blog to enter to win and to check out the blog hop!

Have a Happy!


Just A Little Boat

Yup. Just a little boat. A little adorable boat. A little adorable boat in red, white, and blue. That is what I have for you today. This adorable little boat in red, white, and blue comes from the super adorable Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit. That you need. No, for reals, though. It's awesome. And I super duper love these stamps! LOTS!

Thanks by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #cards #patriotic

To create this fun little design, I stamped the boat and colored it with Spectrum Noir pens. I stamped the water on a scrap piece of cardstock and then colored that with Copics before fussy cutting the waves with my Fiskars MicroTip Scissors. I adhered the waves with foam tape to add just a bit of dimension. YAY!

Thanks by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #cards #patriotic

It's going to be a busy week around here! Lots of fun stuff happening! I wanted to announce the winner of the CanvasPop! Giveaway for those waiting on that fun announcement! The winner is... Taylor! Congratulations, Taylor! Email me for your code!

Guest Designing with SRM!

Are you familiar with SRM Stickers? First of all, let me tell you that they offer MUCH more than stickers. Second of all, the stickers are actually super awesome and I've been a huge fan for a long time. I am so excited that they recently added Jane's Doodles Stamps to their product line! Today I am lucky enough to be doing a guest post over on their blog featuring this super fun card!

Thank You by Jennifer Ingle for SRM Stickers #justjingle #srmstickers #spectrumnoir #cards

For this card I used the super cute Little Miss Mia stamp set for my images. I absolutely LOVE this adorable little pup! SO CUTE! I colored him with Spectrum Noir pens and masked him before stamping the kite. For reals, you guys... CUTENESS!

Thank You by Jennifer Ingle for SRM Stickers #justjingle #srmstickers #spectrumnoir #cards

For the sentiment I used one of the fabulous Thank You stickers, which are now available in the SRM Store as stamps, too! WHAT?! Awesome. I love options! A couple of cute stitches stickers accent the sentiment banner nicely.

Be sure to head on over to my post on the SRM blog to check out the inspiration there and to leave some love!

Have a Happy!

Hello, friends! We have a brand new challenge for you this week, and it is your FAVORITE! It is ANYTHING GOES week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! This week, the design team is featuring Simon Says Stamp Exclusive products, which means LOTS of awesome inspiration! You don't have to use Simon exclusives to participate, but if you have some, we would love to see them! Did you pick up some of the latest Color of Fun release goodies? This is a great excuse to show them off!

Live in the Sunshine by Jennifer Ingle for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #ssscoloroffun #cards

I used the brand new One With Nature stamp set. P.S. I am head over heels in love with this set. When I first saw it, I knew the images were just so perfectly 'me', but then, after moving past the distraction of AMAZEBALLS images, I saw the typewrite font and just about fell over with joy. In. Love. I tell you. For reals, though. I also used the new Wisteria ink pad. I'm not a big purples person, so my stash was missing them. I decided to purchase this one and man do I love it! I just may need more purples in my life.

Live in the Sunshine by Jennifer Ingle for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #ssscoloroffun #cards

Find Your Happy

My happy right this minute? Blueberry Cobbler Coffee and a delicious breakfast sandwich. How about you? If you would LIKE a happy, head on over to my current CanvasPop Giveaway for a chance to win a free photo canvas! 'Cause I'm not sharing my coffee. For reals, though.

Find Your Happy by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #cards #crafts

I absolutely LOVE this Graphic Twist die from the Simon Says Stamp Color of Fun release! Seriously... it is SO much fun! I decided to keep the graphic feel and add a pounce of color using some Kirarina Wink pens. I simply added swashes of color to my black background (because these pens are AWESOME on black!) and then die cut the pattern from a white panel to place over it. Super simple, but I love the graphic feel of it. The die isn't *quite* long enough to go down the vertical length of a card, so I lined up the lines and extended the cut for the full look.

Find Your Happy by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #cards #crafts

The sentiment is from the My Sunshine set. That set is a bit of a hidden gem, in my opinion. I am finding the sentiments to be SUPER useful for all kinds of cards! I love it!

Have a Happy!


Playing Favorites!

Before we get started I wanted to remind you to check out my CanvasPop Review, Discount, and GIVEAWAY! You don't want to miss this one! AWESOME product!

This week, for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge we have a fun one for you! We are PLAYING FAVORITES! Showcase YOUR favorite product and/or your favorite technique on your project! The design team is using Ranger products this week, which, obviously, we LOVE! Because they are AWESOME. For reals, though. You don't have to use Ranger products to play along, but if you have some we love seeing what you do with them!

Oh, Happy Day!!! by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #rangerink

When considering my favorite technique, the obvious came to mind first - CAS design. I like to keep it clean and simple. I, naturally, decided to use that, but I also pulled in another favorite technique that I don't use all that often - ink blending! As I worked on this card, I was reminded why I don't use it that often - I kind of suck at it. HA! I actually love how this turned out in the end, but I have to be honest... LAYERS! There are LOTS of layers of distress ink on that background. I had to work it and work it and then work it some more to get the blend correct. Worth it? Totally. A fun crafting time? For reals, you guys!

Oh, Happy Day!!! by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #rangerink

That awesome die? Yup, that's totally from the new Simon Says Stamp The Color of Fun release. And I love it. With all my heart.

Are you ready to be AWESOME? Create something fabulous showcasing YOUR favorite technique and or product and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store. Yup. It's that easy. Just make sure it is something new, as backlinked projects won't count.

CanvasPop Review, Discount, and Giveaway!

So, you take photos, right? And you love them, but I'm guessing you print fewer of them than you'd like. Even if you are a scrapbooker, as I know many of you are, you print them for your albums, but then they get tucked away. I was recently given the opportunity to have a photo printed on canvas by CanvasPop for free, and can I just tell you how much I LOVE this canvas! The process was super easy and the finished product is gorgeous!

Canvas Pop Canvas Review by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #canvaspop #homedecor #photography #fenwaypark #baseball #redsox

See that awesome shot of Fenway Park in the snow? Yup. I took that shot. I loved it the instant I took it and the first thing that came to mind was that I wanted to somehow incorporate that shot into my home decor. CanvasPop made that TOTALLY possible! I chose a size, a wrap, and the other specs for my canvas. You can also choose to have them framed, if you like! The colors on this thing, you guys, GORGEOUS! It printed beautifully and lost nothing in the process. I was concerned that the canvas might take away some of the detail or feel of the shot and that was NOT a problem at all! I love how this canvas turned out so much!

Canvas Pop Canvas Review by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #canvaspop #homedecor #photography #fenwaypark #baseball #redsox

Now I have a piece of my favorite place on Earth on a beautiful canvas in my living room! I love it! And I love that it is my own work, as well. One of the great things about CanvasPop is that it takes your photos up to the artist level when you have them printed and hang them in your home! I love that. Super duper love that!

AND... CanvasPop has one amazing feature that many like sites do not have - a 100% Love it for Life Guarantee! Yes. They actually want you to love your canvas so much that they guarantee it for life. THAT is customer service, folks. For REALS, though.

If you head over there you can get 35% off your order using the code JUSTJINGLE35! Still looking for that last minute Father's Day gift? DO IT! This is perfect!

Also, CanvasPop is generously offering ONE lucky Just Jingle reader a FREE 16x20 Canvas Print! Yes, that's right! To enter, head on over to the CanvasPop Facebook page and let them know that Just Jingle sent you then leave a comment here telling me about the photo you would like to have printed!

Giveaway will close Tuesday 23 June 2015. Winner will be contacted via email. Be sure to leave a contact email. If I am unable to reach you, a new winner will be chosen.

Have a Happy!


SMILE! It's time for the Pinkfresh June Blog Hop!

Hello, and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio June Embellishment Kit Release blog hop. You should be arriving to my blog from Christin's blog. If you are just finding the hop here on my blog and want to see some inspiration from my the entire design team, please start at the Pinkfresh Studio blog! I think you will enjoy this hop! This is a great kit and the team has done some really fun things with it!

Look Back and Smile by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #pinkfreshstudio #cards #diy #quotes

I absolutely love these acetate pocket scrapbooking cards. And no, I don't really scrapbook, but they work SO well on cards! I created this card sort of like a shaker with not shakey bits. This allows the clear acetate card to have some space between it and the background, leaving room for light to get in there and just plain ol' make it look cool. 

Smile (detail)

CHECK OUT that awesome wood veneer?! Seriously. I am in love with it. And that washi tape has already become a go-to for me. It's fabulous! And lined. Yes, it is on a paper liner so the gold doesn't transfer to the back of the tape beneath it which is awesome. Basically, this kit rocks. For reals, though.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today, be sure to Like Pinkfresh Studio on Facebook and Instagram, and comment on the Pinkfresh blog {the june kit release post} for a chance to win the June kit! The winner will be announced 22 June 2015.

What's that? You want to actually SEE the whole kit? Oh, okay, well, here then. Why didn't you just say so?! *winnk* *wink*  

Ummm... yup. It's AWESOME. For reals. Like, tons. That die? Yes, it cuts out all of those letters in that alphabet stamp. And makes a cool tool to, oh, I don't know, create the perfect sized window for the card above! Yup. I totally used it for that. 

Your next stop on the hop is Jessy's blog

Head on over to the Pinkfresh Studio blog for the full hop list. 

Have a Happy, folks!


Two Cards. Two Techniques. Two Tutorials

It's not TUESDAY, but it is TWOSDAY! hee-hee....see what I did there? *sigh* Okay, I will get on with it, I promise.

Here's the deal, I have TWO cards and TWO tutorials up today on different blogs. Each shows a different technique and I honestly think both are awesome and I hope you love them.

Topiary Thanks by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #spellbinders #cards #diy

This card is up over on the Spellbinders blog and with this one I show you how to really get FULL mileage out of your Spellbinders dies by using them to cut, emboss, AND stencil to create a seriously fantastic finished look. LOVE IT!

So, basically, why are you still here? GO! Check out these tutorials! Share them with friends! Thanks and I love you all!

Have a Happy!


Fun With Flowers

I know I was rather excited about the new Simon Says Stamp Color of Fun release yesterday. Guess what? I'm STILL that excited about it! Seriously! It is so awesome and I am SO loving these stamps and dies! Today I am showing off the gorgeous Many Thanks stamp set. This set is a collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and WPlus9, therefore, amazing, naturally.

Fun with Flowers by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #wplus9 #cards

I masked off the area I wanted my floral strip and stamped away! I even used LAYERS, you guys! Well, kinda. I mean, it's layered for me.I used two different stamps for each flower and for each leaf. Layers, dude. For reals. I also used the new Hollyhock and Blue Jay inks for this one. The new ink colors in the Color of Fun release are really amazing. Seriously. They are AMAZING. Buy them.

Fun with Flowers by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #wplus9 #cards

If you haven't had the chance to check it out yet, run on over to Simon Says Stamp and be ready for some fun! This is my favorite release in awhile. I really love it! Lots.


Dreamers Gotta Dream...about a NEW RELEASE!

Did you SEE IT?! The Simon Says Stamp Color of Fun release is LIVE and it is FABULOUS! Oh, my goodness, you guys, this release! I absolutely LOVE it! I have been playing with a few fabulous stamps, inks, and dies from this release and I can't wait to share them with you over the next few days!

Dreamers Gotta Dream by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #ssscoloroffun #stamping #cards

I used the new Firework Burst die set and the My Sunshine stamp set for this card along with the gorgeous new Hollyhock ink pad. You guys, this pink?! It's so fabulous! I love it so much! The panel behind the sentiment is actually white cardstock inked with the Hollyhock ink to  match the stamped text perfectly. It makes me happy. Very happy.

Dreamers Gotta Dream by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #ssscoloroffun #stamping #cards

Now, seriously... head on over to the Simon Says Stamp store to check out this Color of Fun release! You do NOT want to miss out on this one! It is seriously amazeballs. My links are affiliate links and your support is always appreciated.

Because Sometimes You Just Feel Like Putting a Shaker in the Middle of a Card

That's a really long blog post title, but it's true, soooo.... I'm going with it. For reals, though. This was a fun card to create. The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge theme this week is Super Friends and Super Heroes. The Design Team is featuring Mama Elephant products this week. Mostly because Mama Elephant products are ADORABLE!!! For reals, though. They really are.

I Like U by Jennifer Ingle #mamaelephant #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #cards

I combined a couple of adorable Mama Elephant stamp sets with the Spellbinders® Curved Matting Basics A die set to create this fun little shaker card. I layered dies over the card for a bit of a textured background that isn't too busy at all. I used the same die to create the shaker window for a bit of added fun! I kind of love this one. And by kind of, I mean I TOTALLY love this one. Totes, dude. Totes.

I Like U by Jennifer Ingle #mamaelephant #justjingle #simonsaysstamp #cards

Now it's your turn! Create a card for a special friend or your super hero and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! If you need some inspiration, I highly recommend pulling out Mix Tape Vol. 1. It is the quintessence of super hero inspiration. I promise.

One lucky participant is going to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! WHAT?! Yup. Totally. Even super heroes need to shop now and then, right? Right. 

Stamps: Mama Elephant Photo Bomb and Small Talk Clear Stamp Sets
Markers: Spectrum Noir

P.S. Heavenly Donuts Coffee choice for today: Chocolate Covered Strawberry. And yes, it is delicious!


My Precious

Yes, I will openly admit that the primary reason I bought this adorable Winnie & Walter stamp set was because of the name. I mean, for reals, you guys! It's called MY PRECIOUS!!! And, yes, for the record, I do say it in my best Gollum voice. Every.single.time.

My Precious by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #myprecious #winnieandwalter #cards

I stuck with a very simple design for this card. To add the color, in the spirit of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I tried something I hadn't done before. I placed a sheet of acetate over the image and then used distress markers to scribble color over each gem stone. I then spritzed the acetate with water to activate the inks, flipped it over, and pressed the color onto the paper. I kind of love how it turned out!

My Precious by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #myprecious #winnieandwalter #cards

I will be honest, while I love the color technique and how that worked out, I do wish I had come up with a better way to place my sentiment on this one. It is just not feeling right. Even now. However, the truth is, I'm okay with that. I tried something new and it worked and that makes me happy!

Have a Happy, folks!


Well, That Stinks!

I am a dog person. If you have been around for more than ten minutes, you likely know this, already. I am not a cat person. I mean, I don't have anything AGAINST, them, per se, but they pretty much try to kill me every time I am in their presence. The don't do it on purpose. It's just that I am one of those people to whom animals are naturally attracted. This includes both cats and dogs. The thing is, I am VERY allergic to cats. Not a little bit allergic. LOTS of allergic. And they insist on touching me. And I love animals, so I have a very hard time turning down a cute and fluffy furball. Alas, this, is why I am not a cat person. They try to kill me.

BUT...I can still STAMP them! Because I am NOT allergic to ink and paper. WHOA, that would SUCK! It's a good thing I'm not allergic to ink and paper. For reals, though.

Not Feeling Well? by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #newtonsnook #cats #cards #getwellsoon

CUTENESS! I love the Newton's Nook cats! They are just adorable and so much fun to color, too! I colored this little furball with Spectrum Noir pens and then fussy cut the patterned paper below him to be the 'floor'in order to limit the layers on the card. The little bunting thingy (yup, technical term) is also cut from patterned paper.

Not Feeling Well? by Jennifer Ingle #justjingle #newtonsnook #cats #cards #getwellsoon

OH! Also, many of you have asked where I get my delicious coffee flavors. The answer is not likely going to make you happy unless you live on the North Shore in the greater Boston area. LOL! They come from a place called Heavenly Donuts. There are a few in the area, but only some are actually good because they have different owners. MINE, however, is amazeballs. They have the BEST customer service ever AND they have so many amazing coffee flavors (both iced and hot) that it blows your mind. For reals, though.

Have a Happy!

Stamps: Newton's Nook Naughty Newton clear stamp set
Patterned Paper: Project Life Southern Weddings 6x6 Paper Pad (P.S. This paper pad is absolutely GORGEOUS and not overly wedding-ish, so it is super versatile and you need it. For reals, though.)
Markers: Spectrum Noir

Fabulous is a Frame of Mind by Jennifer Ingle #mftstamps #cards #diy #bazzillbasics #coffee

I recently bought these adorable flamingo dies and thought they would be a perfect fit for the summer theme! I combine them with the MFT Coffee Cup Die set to create this fun card. The sentiment is half from the Tickled Pink stamp set and half computer printed. I accented the flamingo with white colored pencil to add some dimension. The Bazzill Kraft Foil paper made the PERFECT little coffee cup sleeve! Seriously. I love that part. I really do.

What They Said

So, Kathy Rac (yes, there is more to her last name, but that's what I call her in my head. Thanks, Instagram!), is doing her awesome 30 Day Coloring Challenge. The thing of it is... Kathy is really GOOD at coloring. Jingle, on the other hand... is okay at coloring. I mean, I don't suck at it and I can hold my own, but that's about the extent of it. Sooo... I decided to play along here and there for this challenge. We'll see how it goes. I know every day isn't feasible for me, but I plan to color MORE this month than usual. That's the level of commitment I am willing to make. PRACTICE! That's what it is all about, folks!

What They Said by Jennifer Ingle #cardmaking #mamaelephant #spectrumnoir #copic

So, I stamped these little adorables. These little adorables, while adorable, are a tad bit intimidating due to the coloring required to make them even more adorable. Naturally, I decided to stamp ALL THREE of them on ONE CARD because I like to give myself more work to do. Naturally. Seriously, though, I used a combination of Spectrum Noir pens and Copics (two critters with SN's and two with Copics... can you tell the difference? *wink*) to color the critters and then used them even more to add shadow at the bottom. Whoa. That was a LOT of coloring, folks. For reals, though.

What They Said by Jennifer Ingle #cardmaking #mamaelephant #spectrumnoir #copic

Okay, I admit it. They were super fun to color. Also, I did a little research to help choose my colors. Did you know that raccoons apparently have a thing for jazz hands? For REALS. Do a google image search. You will totally see it! Actually, I need you to see it. So... here.

It's a RACCOON with JAZZ HANDS. What more could you want, really?

SEE!!!!! JAZZ HANDS!!!! Oh, MAN, I love it so much. For reals, you guys. These are the kinds of things that just make my freaking day. For. Reals.

Have a Happy, folks!
