Look for the Last Chance Products List after 1pm MT today, March 23rd. Once the list is announced, I will post PDF's here and on my Facebook Business Page Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe and my Stampin' Peace VIP Group on Facebook.

Join me tonight at 8pm EST for my Facebook LIVE on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I'll be walking you through the current Annual Catalog and showing the retiring products. I think this is a little easier for you than looking at a long list. So grab your current Annual Catalog, a pen (I like to use red or some other bright color), and a beverage and join me at 8pm EST.

 

Have a great day! I'm looking forward to you joining me on Facebook this evening!


More Split Panel Cards

My Saturday, December 26th blog post featured a video demonstration of making a Split Panel Card using the Dandy Garden Suite featured in our new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog launching January 5th. If you missed it, please click on the following link to see the demonstration and photos of the Split Panel Cards:  https://bit.ly/37OFE6Y.

Today's blog post features a twist on these Split Panel Cards. I used the same Stampin' Up! Dandy Garden Suite products and the same cutting and scoring dimensions to make a different version of my previous Split Panel Cards. Today's Split Panel Cards are in the landscape or horizontal position rather than the portrait or vertical position.

 

Calypso Coral is just one of many gorgeous Stampin' Up! colors in the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper Collection. Dandelions and dragonflies are a couple of the coordinating images seen throughout the Dandy Garden product collection. Dragonflies can be stamped then punched with the coordinating stamp set and punch or use the Dragonflies Punch to punch dragonflies from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. Either way the dragonflies are a wonderful addition to your cards and paper crafting projects, especially when adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim is easy to tie bows with and just the right weight for using as a card embellishment.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

My sentiment was stamped so that it is covered when the card is closed.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

 

Misty Moonlight and bumblebees are also coordinating components of the Dandy Garden Suite. On this card, I placed the extra horizontal piece toward the top of my card rather than near the bottom as in the previous card. A simple change that makes a dramatic impact.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!

If you're curious as to how I managed 2 colors of ink on 1 stamped image, be sure to check out my video demonstration on my December 26th blog post. I show you 2 ways to add 2 or more colors to a single stamp for a multicolored stamped image. Click here to see the video demonstration for this stamping technique and the Split Panel Card.

Dandy Garden Suite by Stampin' Up!


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".

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.

I appreciate you visiting my Stampin' Peace website. May your days be filled with peace and beauty. Happy Stamping!


Boho Indigo Note Cards

I have to admit, creating with the Boho Indigo Product Medley makes me happy. The simple color scheme of Misty Moonlight, Very Vanilla, and Metallic Gold Accents, the variety of designs in the Designer Series Paper, the elegant gold ribbon and texture of the blue ribbon, the felt flowers with bead center, the numerous die cuts, and, last but not least, the stamp set and coordinating dies. I love it all! The possibilities are endless for making wonderful cards for any occasion or note cards like the two I made below.

Here are two of several cards I've created with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. Be sure to download the Free PDF Project Sheets I made for you so you can make these cards too.

You're one in a million!

New products are so much fun to play with. The Quite Curvy Bundle, Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, and festive Curvy Celebrations DSP do not disappoint. In fact, I'm going to need a lot more time to create with these fabulous and versatile products. My Facebook Live video replay below gives you some tips for using the Curvy Dies and will show you how to make a beautiful card perfect for telling someone how much they mean to you. 

The cards in today's blog post give you a sneak peek at the Quite Curvy Bundle which will be in our 2021 January - June Mini Catalog. But you don't have to wait that long to order it. The Quite Curvy Bundle is available as a pre-order to EVERYONE beginning November 3rd.  And if you love Quite Curvy Bundle, consider adding the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set & Classic Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to your upcoming order. These coordinating Christmas products will NOT be in the 2021 Jan - June Mini Catalog like the Quite Curvy Bundle. They are exclusive to the Curvy Celebrations Promotion November 3rd - January 4th only.

Such a great card for expressing gratitude, love, congratulations, and even thinking of you and encouragement.

3 Curvy Dies were used on this card. One cut the curvy edge & dots. The second one cut the leaves and embossed the curly lines. The third die used cut out the bird I colored with Stampin' Blends.

I added an extra layer of Mint Macaron card stock between the card base and Whisper White card stock on the inside of the card for a little added interest.

Another Variation of the Slimline Card

Today's blog post contains a video demonstration of a new variation on the Slimline Card. It's called a Double Split Slimline Card. With my video demonstration and directions, I hope you'll feel confident to try it on your own. My cards feature the bright, colorful, festive, and fun Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper with tips on getting the most out of it along with the coordinating dies. Enjoy!

 

Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper & Home Together Dies by Stampin' Up!

These two cards use the same Double Split Slimline Card layout and same Trimming the Town DSP but look so different. I love the versatility of Stampin' Up! products to help me create one of a kind cards even with limited supplies.

This card is so fun and festive and reminds me of my childhood when Dad would "flood" our backyard to make an ice rink for us. Such fun we had! We loved winters in Cleveland. Dad took us to the valley so sled a lot too. And he was a high school teacher so he loved snow days as much as we kids did.
