Quick Tip Tuesday - Festive Corners

Happy Fall and Happy Tuesday. It's time for another Quick Tip Tuesday Video. The Festive Corners Stamp Set has become one of my favorites for so many reasons. It's unique and different and fun and quite versatile too with images and sentiments for celebrating Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day & Love. It can be a bit tricky and even messy stamping the corner sentiments in this stamp set as the stamps require you to use rather large clear acrylic blocks. Today's tip will help you stamp these corner sentiments cleanly and without an inky mess. AND, this tip can be applied to stamping all your narrow images and sentiments as well. Just use the edges of your ink pads. Take a look now at my video demonstration on this very helpful tip.

You can see in these photos how cleanly I was able to stamp the corner sentiments cleanly without mess using today's tip  -despite needing to use large clear acrylic blocks for just this little bit of stamping.

I CASE'd My Happy Mail

I, like all of you I'm sure, LOVE to get Happy Mail. This week I received a fabulous fun fold card created by my Merry Stampers Team Member Kiki Nickloes. And it came just in time last Thursday as I still needed to come up with an idea for my Friday Facebook Live. So I quickly CASE'd Kiki's miss you card and made a celebrate you card copying her fun fold. In my September 18th Facebook Live, I showed my sample card then demonstrated this wonderful fun fold. Both of my cards feature the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper, but different stamp sets for different occasions. Check out my video, then get ready to make some new fun fold cards of your own.

 

The card below featuring the Way to Goat Stamp Set was sent to me by Merry Stampers Team Member Kiki Nickloes. It's the card I CASE'd for my September 18th Facebook Live Fun Fold Friday demonstration.

I love how Kiki's fun fold card shows off her Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.

The Celebration card below is the first card I made by CASEing Kiki's card above.

I never tire of sunflowers. They always make me smile.

The photo below shows a picture of the card from the top. It's very similar to a standard Z-Fold card but with slightly different scoring dimensions.

The following card also uses the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper as did the card above.

Christmas Means More

I love the pops of Real Red in the holly berries and the sheer ribbon bow.
Christmas Means More

One of my all-time favorite Christmas sayings!

There so much beauty and interest to the card from the fun fold to the finishing details on the outside and inside of the card.

Just a girl with goals!

Girl-with-goals
Yep, that's me. Just a girl with goals! And right now, I'm just a girl with a last big goal for the current Stampin' Up! year and only 10 days left to reach that goal. 
 
This is a last quarter personal sales goal.  I am about $1100 short of meeting this goal. If I reach my goal, I plan to invest the bonus I will receive into purchasing a new and improved, heavy duty paper cutter. This cutter will allow me to cut several packages of card stock at one time. (My current paper cutter, limits me to 12 sheets at a time.) Spending less time cutting card stock for classes and events will give me more time to plan & design more classes & events, Facebook Lives, & YouTube videos, as well as spend more time training & coaching my team while still growing my own business.
 
I am asking for your help and would appreciate any support you can give. 
 
Any and all orders will receive a surprise SU! gift from me AND for every $50 you order between now and September 30th, you will receive an entry into my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway. That's right I'd like to give away a New Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Wouldn't you love to be the winner of this cool new tool?
 
September Host Code for Online Orders:  QPQPQJVG Please use the monthly host code when placing an online order at www.maryknabe.stampinup.net***Do not use Host Code when ordering $150+ as you will receive Stampin' Rewards. I will still send you my monthly SU! gift and enter you into the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway.

Try this Tri-Fold Shutter Card!

This Tri-Fold Shutter card is so much fun to make. After making my first one, I just knew I had to share it. This video replay of my September 16th Facebook Live includes a step-by-step demonstration so you can make Tri-Fold Shutter Cards too. They may look intimidating, but with my demonstration and tips, you'll see that it's quite easy to make.

The Tri-Fold Shutter cards in this video and post feature the So Sentimental Bundle from the Annual Catalog and the very beautiful Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper which is just one product in the gorgeous Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I love mixing and matching products from different catalogs and suites for more creative possibilities. 

Enjoy my video demonstration then get to work making a Tri-Fold Shutter Card of your own. I'd love to have you share your creation with me and others on my Stampin' Peace VIP Facebook Group.

 

I love how these Tri-Fold Shutter Cards turned out that I have a feeling I'll be making lots more of them.Tri-Fold Card with So Sentimental Bundle & Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

The sentiment and label shapes are from the So Sentimental Bundle, one of my all time favorites.
Tri-Fold Card with So Sentimental Bundle & Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I used three different patterns from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack for this card. You can, however, use up to 4 or 5 different papers if you really want to show off your Designer Series Papers.

The Holiday Rhinestones and Forever Greenery Ribbon make great embellishments of these cards. Little details like these can make a good card great!

This view shows the back of my Tri-Fold Shutter Card. I added some Whisper White card stock for writing a message. Tri-Fold Shutter cards are great for sending from a group of people. There's plenty of room on the back for lots of well wishes and signatures.

Do you see the slight difference in this card from the one pictured above? I introduced a 4th paper pattern for the center section of the card.

Open If You Dare!

Take a look at this! My Fun Fold Gift Card Holder featuring the Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up! is awesome, if I do say so myself. It's fun. It's spooky. It's creepy. It's even a bit elegant. There are so many interesting details making this gift card holder fun and fabulous. Enjoy my video demonstration from my September 9th Facebook Live, then give it a try. You can make these for any holiday or occasion by simply changing out the colors, paper, embellishment, and stamp sets to suit the theme. Be sure to share your creations with me. Feel free to show them off by posting to my Stampin' Peace Vip Facebook Group and/or Stamp 'n Scrap with Mary Knabe Facebook Business Page.

 

It's funny how I see so much beauty in this somewhat spooky card. I simply love the many fine details I see in the Designer Series Paper, stamped images, and other elements of this card.Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

It's easy to turn any card into a gift card holder by adding a "pocket" made from a strip of Designer Series Paper.
Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I colored the flowers on the Happy Halloween label with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker & a Blender Pen and the leaves with Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!


By pulling up the panel decorated with the Happy Halloween label, one discovers a "card within the card". There's plenty of room to add a personal message to your friend or loved one here.
Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I don't care all that much for living spiders, especially in my house, but think these stamped spiders creeping inside this card are kind of fun for Halloween.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I used the Label Me Lovely Punch to "take a bite" out of the Designer Series Paper when creating the pocket to hold a gift card.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!
The Cherry Cobbler color adds a fun pop of color  - I'd say it's a pretty good "blood color" for this Halloween card with it's "Open If You Dare" greeting.

I'm looking forward to sending a Halloween surprise to some special people with these Magic in this Night Fun Fold Gift Card Holders next month.
