Dog & Cat Lovers, This is For You!

I put together some really cute cards and pet treat boxes using the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, coordinating card stock, and a variety of paper punches. Check them out on this video replay of my July 8th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace VIP. You'll get cutting information and demonstrations for assembling all the projects below.

 

I can't help but smile when I look at the cute pups on these delightful cards.

Who would have thought that Cinnamon Cider and Real Red work so well together? I had no idea until I saw that they were part of a fabulous color combination in the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.

I replaced a couple of the punched circles with punched hearts for the card below. I love it!

Our new 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" Acetate Card Boxes make cute little gift boxes for dog & cat treats. Know someone who has a new pet? Why not gift them with a bit of cash in one of these cute boxes to help them with purchasing treats, toys or other items needed to keep their pet happy and healthy.

I love the little heart that is part of the Dog Builder Punch. I can use that punch year round for any time I want to add a little heart embellishment to my cards, gift tags, or other paper crafts.

The Real Red ribbon in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack is the perfect size for dog and cat collars with the Dog Builder and Cat Punches. Sometimes it's the tiniest detail that completes you project.

A Little Bird Told Me

Aren't these birds from the Posted for You Stamp Set so cute? They were very easy to color. I colored mine to look like robins using my Stampin' Blends markers. Change out colors and make them any kind of bird you love or ever a variety of birds. Stampin' Up! has several other coloring tools you could use in place of Stampin' Blends if you like: Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, Stampin' Write Markers.

Simple & Elegant

Simple and elegant is the best way to describe today's cards. The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is fabulous for so many reasons. I love creating with the stamp set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies. These simple and elegant Blossoms in Bloom cards are wonderful all occasion cards. Use them as note cards or to express sympathy, thoughts of you, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, retirement, and more. Tone on tone cards such as these perform well as simple and elegant cards.

These cards are elegant in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla.Many Layered Blossoms Dies & Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

TIP:  Use Adhesive Sheets with card stock to die cut & adhere the die cut pieces to your card fronts easily.

The Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon adds a nice pop of color without taking away from the card's simplicity and elegance.

I can't decide which I like better, the Whisper White card above or the Very Vanilla card below. Which is your favoite?

The woven ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack matches our Very Vanilla card stock perfectly.

What other Stampin' Up! colors would you use to make these simple & elegant tone-on-tone cards? Petal Pink is on my mind.

Want to make these simple and elegant cards a bit fancier? Consider adding a bit of metallic or glitter paper with a few small die cut flowers or perhaps some embellishments such as small Metallic Pearls or gold Gilded Gems. We have even more embellishment to choose from. What will you choose?

It's easy. It's fun. Give it a try then create some beautiful cards with your very own customized Designer Series Paper.

The colors really "pop" against the metallic gold outlines of the flowers and leaves.

The new Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch pairs perfectly with this sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set. Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch, & Lovely Labels Pick A Punch by Stampin' Up!

Emily was not able to go on the Hilton Head Vacation with me as she is in a Physical Therapy Clinical for 8 weeks. I left her some goodies and cards including this one when I was gone to remind her she is loved always and would be missed. The sentiment on this card said exactly what I was feeling.
Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, Lovely You Stamp Set, & Lovely Labels Pick A Punch by Stampin' Up!

I love the details created by the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.
Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, Lovely You Stamp Set, & Lovely Labels Pick A Punch by Stampin' Up!

Card Dimensions:  Highland Heather card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on long side, and folded in half. Ornate Garden DSP is 4 3/4" x 3 1/2". Gold Foil layer is 4 7/8" x 3 5/8".

For top card, gold label is 1/2" x 4". For bottom card, gold label is 1" x 4" and white label is 3/4" x 3 1/4".

 

FYI...after making these cards I realized the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon is retired and no longer available. I guess I just didn't get enough of it, I wanted to keep using it! We do, however, sell the Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding which could be colored with Highland Heather Stampin' Blends or any color of your choice. Customized ribbon to go with your customized DSP - how sweet.

Make It with Mary Monday, July 6, 2020

There's no better way to jump back into my Stampin' Peace work after a great vacation in Hilton Head with family than with a Make It with Mary Facebook Live. It was especially fun to gather and create with my Stampin' Peace VIP's on July 6th after being "unplugged" for over a week (something I'm not used to doing). Take a look at the Facebook Live video replay where I demonstrated creating with a new card sketch and then showed an alternate card sketch using card stock and DSP of the same dimensions.

 

The Ornate Garden Suite is full of cheerful florals in bright colors.

Ribbon and Gilded Gems add just the right amount of shimmer and shine to this card.

I stamped and colored the flowers on my envelope to coordinate with me card. Decorated envelopes let your card recipient know that they are about to open a very special piece of mail - a gift from the heart.

I used card stock and Designer Series Paper of the same dimensions but changed the layout to make the next card. I love how it turned out. Now, I have another new card sketch to work with.

I "stamped off" with Mint Macaron ink for the scrolling image. This way, the image did not detract from the sentiment.

I used the scrolling image with Mint Macaron to dress up the envelope front. It's pretty and still leaves plenty of room to address the envelope.

Tuesday Tips - Post It Notes

Post-It Notes or "sticky notes" are a staple in my craft room. I'm going to show you a couple of reasons why I think sticky notes are a must-have for every paper crafter.

The Good Things in Life

The good things in life are better with you! There are so many people that I could send cards with this lovely sentiment. - family members, friends, loved ones, and stampin' friends like you. Card making is one of those good things in my life that really is better because of YOU and all my Stampin' Peace customers and followers who allow me the opportunity to share what I love to do. What an awesome job this is!

"The Good Things in Life are better with you" sentiment is a feature product in today's card and free project sheet. This card features the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and Tasteful Labels Dies along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Take a look at the photos then be sure to download the Free Project Sheet.

 

So many wonderful details come together to make these cards fabulous!
Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, & In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

 

The Tasteful Touches Stamp Set has several meaningful sentiments. And the size, shape, and stitched detail of the Tasteful Labels Die I used is absolutely perfect for the sentiment on these cards. Don't you agree?
Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, & In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

 

The paper I chose from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper collection looks like real woven fabric. You can actually see fibers and threads of various colors and shades. The Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon adds a layer of soft texture. Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, & In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

 

The two stamped feathers add an unexpected bit of interest in the otherwise plain corner of the card front.
Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, & In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

 

You can use small embellishments to draw attention to specific words in your stamped sentiments as I did with the silver Metallic Pearls on these cards. I used them to accent the word 'better' on one card and 'you' on the other. I like both!
