Cutting Dimensions:

Evening Evergreen card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4" on long side. Designer Series Paper is 5" x 3 3/4". Crushed Curry layer is 5 1/8" x 3 7/8". Crushed Curry circle was made with the "wreath" die from Encircled in Beauty Dies.

To make the berries on this card appear more realistic, I put drops of Fine Tip Glue on them. This gives the berries a raised, glossy look. TIP: This takes a good bit of drying time. Do it as the very last step in making  your card, then lay flat to dry.

A strip of coordinating Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper add a nice touch to the inside of this card.

I used Pearl Basic Jewels colored with Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin' Blends for the berries on the card below.

Halloween Sliders just in time for Trick-or-Treat

Monday was such a fun day. During my Facebook Live I demonstrated making my Halloween Sliders with 2 different kinds of treats. Then I spent some time making several more of each Late in the day, my daughter Emily and I took the Halloween Sliders to my nieces and their roommates at The Ohio State University. Avery is a freshman studying business and living in the same dorm where her parents met. Her sister Alison is a senior in nursing and living off campus. It was fun to see these girls, hug them, and see where they're living and enjoying their college days. How fun it was for Emily and I, both OSU alumni, to spend a little time on campus. And just to note...big kids like Halloween treats too.

So if you're for still looking for something to make and give for trick-or-treat, take a look at the video below for a demonstration of making these "sliders" with candy bars and single serving cookies. These sliders can easily be adapted for any holiday or occasion. The sliders are so simple to make & use minimal supplies allowing you to whip up a batch in no time! Just by changing up the size of your paper, you can make sliders for microwave popcorn packets and so many other candy bars and treats. What's your favorite and what holiday or occasion would you make these treat sliders for?

 

Hershey Bar Sliders, so fun to make and give!

Hmmm...I didn't even think to take a picture of us 4 OSU Buckeyes together. I guess because I live in the moment. But, I'll always have this fun memory.

 

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope you'll make some fun "sliders" for Halloween or perhaps another holiday or event. I'd love to know what treat you'll use to make these fun favors!

 

Happy Halloween and Happy Stamping!

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.

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

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!
