Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder for the Win!

Happy Friday, or FriYAY, as some say. And what a fabulous Friday it is. The fall weather in central Ohio is beautiful. Perhaps, I'll take my first visit to the Circleville Pumpkin Show this weekend. 

I think now is a great time to spoil each of you with a little something. How about a Free Friday Download? This one features the Merriest Moments Stamp Set and coordinating Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder along with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper. It's a gorgeous card to send during the merriest season of all.

4 STUNNING Blackberry Beauty Cards

I don't know about you, but I love to make batches of cards so that I always have a stash at my ready. An easy card layout can help you do that. And by mixing and matching Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and incorporating it in the card layout, you can create lots of different cards with that 1 card layout. 

In the following Facebook Live video replay, you'll see me demonstrate making 4 different cards using the same easy card layout and same Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper. You'll also pick up some tips and making your envelopes stunning too!

The card below I pulled from my stash and CASE'd it make 4 beautiful cards with products from the Blackberry Beauty Suite.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score & fold at 5 b1/2" on long side
  • White or Vanilla card stock for inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Designer Series Paper = Cut 1 piece 1 3/4" x 5 1/4" for center strip
  • Coordinating DSP = Cut 2 pieces 1" x 5 1/4" for left and right strips.

Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

I love pairing these two sentiments from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set on the outside and inside of my cards. Perfect sentiment for so many people I know.

Another stunning card made with this simple layout and the Blackberry Beauty Suite! Who would you send this one too??? Definitely someone is need of our support?

For the next two cards, I changed the orientation of the card layout from vertical to horizontal making this simple layout even more versatile.
Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe (1)"I'm Here For You" is a sentiment you can send to people for so many different reasons. Everyone wants to feel love and support from friends and family.

From Christmas Bells to Wedding Bells

I LOVE when I discover ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in unexpected ways. I especially love discovering ways to use my holiday products year round, not just for the holiday season. In this video, you'll see that I use the Christmas Bells in the Gingerbread Dies collection to make stunning cards for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, and bridal showers. This idea was definitely not something I thought of when I purchased the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, but I'm so glad it came to me later.


Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Which is your favorite wedding card, the Basic White or Very Vanilla? Mine is the white one. My daughter Andrea is getting married in June and is wearing white, and the Soft Succulent color of the ribbon on this card is very similar to the color of her bridesmaids' dresses. I think this will be a wonderful wedding or bridal shower card to use for this special event in our family.Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for 2 cards shown above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4" on long side

Gingerbread & Peppermint Card & Gift Bag

I'm so excited to share today's card and gift bag project with you. I absolutely love it. I created this festive card with products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. Talk about FUN. This suite has it! Traditional bright red and green patterns and a traditional theme of yummy holiday treats - gingerbread and peppermints. Be sure to download the project sheet using the link below for today's Free Friday Download.

As an alternate to mailing this card, you can give it the additional purpose of decorating a gift bag. Card & Gift Bag together, no lost cards or tiny tag. To do this cut a 1 1/2" strip of coordinating color card stock the width of your gift bag. Use a strong adhesive (like Stampin' Seal+ or Tear & Tape) on each end of the strip only to adhere it to the bag. Slip the card over the strip and there you go!
