Dandy Garden Fun Fold Cards

I received these from my Stampin' Up! upline Susi Brunk & 2nd upline Sherrie Parker last week. A cute little canvas decorated with the Brightly Gleaming Suite products and a coordinating fun fold card. I used the fun fold card as inspiration for my December 20th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Start with 4 1/4" x 11". Cut off 1 3/4" from one end. This is the extra piece that you place vertically and adhere to top flap of card.
  • Card base is the 4 1/4" x 9 1/4" piece you now have. Score at 1 7/8" from each end. Fold on both score lines to form top and bottom flaps for card front.
  • Designer Series Paper - Cut 2 pieces 1 5/8" x 4" and 1 piece of a different but coordinating DSP 1 1/2" x 4".
  • Whisper White for inside of card = 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

I love the Ladybug Trinket Embellishments. They are metal and adhere easily with a Mini Glue Dot.Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

Here are a couple more of this same Fun Fold Card I made by mixing and matching more of the Dandy Garden DSP.

The Dragonflies Punch is such a great part of the Dandy Garden Suite. You can punch your stamped dragonflies and punch dragonflies from the colorful Dandy Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper as I did for these cards. I love the extra effort Stampin' Up! puts into coordinating its many products.

Don't skip the video above if you want to learn 2 ways you can put 2 or more colors of ink on a single stamp as I did for stamping these coordinating envelopes.

I absolutely love Blackberry Bliss, and I love the brightness of the other colors against the very rich Blackberry Bliss color.

Make a Holiday Pocket Card

I've been making Holiday Pocket Cards and want to show you how! Take a look at my November 30th Facebook Live Video Replay for a complete demonstration. You'll see me make 2 pocket cards start to finish plus see a few others I made. Pocket cards are lots of fun to make and send. They also make great gift card holders just in time for the upcoming holidays. Or switch out the colors and stamp set to make pocket cards for birthdays and other occasions. These are so easy to make, you'll want to make several in one sitting. Watch, be inspired, and stamp on!

I made my pine trees using Triangle Dies in various sizes to die cut various patterns of Shaded Spruce DSP from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper. It's easy and FUN to mix and match the sizes and patterns of your pine trees to create festive pocket cards to spread Christmas Cheer.

I die cut the 2 layers of white poinsettias from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. The flower centers are from the Holiday Rhinestones which include 5 gorgeous colors of rhinestones. I used the holly leaf dies to cut the Green Foil Paper leaves.

My holly leaves turned out exactly the way I wanted them to - with lots of detail to add more interest. I first stamped the outline of each holly leaf with Shaded Spruce ink onto my Designer Series Paper, then stamped the inside color. I then die cut the holly leaves while also using the embossing dies that embossed the veins of each leaf. It sounds complicated, but it really was not. 

3 large pearls colored with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends marker are the perfect finishing touch adding beauty and elegance to this already pretty pocket card.

Not sure what to get your crafty friends and family members? Why purchase Stampin' Peace Gift Certificates and give them the thrill of choosing their own Stampin' Up! gift. Perhaps, they'll purchase the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine or one of the other many new products coming January 5th. Gift certificates are sold in any amount and are good through 2021, although, I suspect the receivers will be too excited to wait that long to use their gift certificate. Contact me at mknabe2008@gmail.com to purchase gift certificates.

Quite Curvy Hello Note Card

It's nice to send a pretty card simply to say hello to a friend or loved one who you haven't see in a long time or who you know needs a little pick me up or to know they are thought of. This card is perfect for that person. The card is simple and quick to make. The gold hoop adds a fun element to this wreath card. The sentiment and flowers are from the Quiet Curvy Bundle. And with such bright colors as Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party, whose days wouldn't be made just a bit brighter with this card?

No extra layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper for this simply beautiful card.

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!I prefer to use Whisper White THICK card stock for my white card bases as it is much sturdier and stands up better than our original Whisper White card stock that is intended for layering. The same holds true for Very Vanilla card bases. 

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!
What a nice impact this Gold Hoop Embellishment adds. It makes this simple card a bit fancy!

 

TIPS for making this card: 

  • For adhering the Gold Hoop Embellishments, use a few Mini Glue Dots rolled up or even a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape rolled. You don't need adhesive all the way around the Gold Hoop. Just 3-4 spots with good adhesive will hold your Gold Hoop in place nicely.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Black Momento Ink or in color of your choice.
  • I stamped 2 floral sprigs in Black Momento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party.
  • Die cut both floral sprigs. Then cut one of them into 2 pieces (1 very small piece and 1 longer piece) and tuck and adhere these underneath the Gold Hoop. The other floral sprig I placed over the top of the hoop using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
  • Use a Mini Glue Dot behind the knot of the bow to adhere it to the bottom of the floral wreath.

Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits. 

IMG_0150 (1)Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with  4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

Shaker Cards Made Easy

Shaker Cards are so much fun to give. Everyone - people of all ages - love receiving a Shaker Card in the mail and giving it a shake. But, let's admit, Shaker Cards can be a bit tricky to make. Not anymore! Not with this super cool, easy-to-make version of the Shaker Card as we know it.

Simple & Beautiful Brightly Gleaming Cards

My November 9th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live was lots of fun. I used a limited amount of supplies to create quick, easy, and simply elegant Christmas cards with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. I hope you'll watch my Facebook Live Replay and that you will be inspired to do what we in the Stampin' Up! world like to call "Simple Stamping" with our 3 main products - stamps, ink, and paper. These cards are great for beginner stampers or for those who prefer a simple style. They are great for people making their first card or for someone making lots of cards to send family, friends, and colleagues, or to donate to a church group or nursing home. And of course, you can always add layers of card stock, DSP, and specialty papers along with ribbons, trims, and embellishments to turn these simple cards into wow cards. The supplies used may be limited but the creative possibilities are endless. So enjoy this video, then grab some supplies and get started creating simply beautiful cards.

 

Using both side of the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper makes it easy to create multiples of your designs and layouts.
