Card Sketch 3 Ways

On my October 19th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live, I introduced a new easy card sketch and used it to make 3 different cards.

  • Card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on long side, folded in half.
  • DSP Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Whisper White card stock strip - 1/2" x 5 1/4" or scrap to stamp & punch sentiment
  • Two 1 1/2" squares of DSP or card stock
  • One 2" square of DSP or card stock

Holiday Rhinestones contain 5 different colors of rhinestones to embellish your holiday cards and paper crafts with. Red Rhinestones also are great for these cards as are Gold Gilded Gems. I love having so many wonderful embellishments to choose from when I stamp and create.

Pretty Poinsettia Shadow Box Cards

I absolutely love Poinsettia of all colors and sizes, perhaps, because I have a December birthday. When I first saw the Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! 2020 Holiday Catalog, I just knew I had to have it. I love the Poinsettia Petal with matching Poinsettia Dies that cut AND emboss the veins in the poinsettia petals. The Designer Series Paper is gorgeous and the Beaded Pearls so elegant. These products are featured in the Facebook Live video replay below in which I demonstrate how to make a Shadow Box Card. Making this Fun Fold Card is actually quite a simple process, and the Shadow Box cards fits nicely in a standard medium envelope as it is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when lying flat.

Here are two very different card both made with the Poinsettia Place Suite. Mixing and matching products makes for endless possibilities in creating pretty poinsettia cards for the holidays.

The Red Velvet poinsettia pairs beautifully with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper used on the front of this Shadow Box. The design of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the inside of this Shadow Box card matches the design on the Plush Poinsettia Paper on the front of the card. So many beautiful details coordinating on this gorgeous card.

I've changed quite a few elements in the 2nd poinsettia Shadow Box card I made. The card base is made of Old Olive card stock on front and Whisper White for the back/inside layer. I moved the Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the card, changed out the sentiment for a larger one and embellished the card front with Holiday Rhinestones in gold. The poinsettia is made of Red Foil Paper, uses the Beaded Pearl for its center, and has loops of Old Olive Ribbon with a sparkly edge behind it.

The Poinsettia Dies not only cut out poinsettia petals. They also emboss veins in the petals.

Triple Layer Stamping with Holly & Berries

I'm excited to share with you the Triple Layer Stamping Technique. I demonstrated this technique in a recent Facebook Live. The cards I show in my video feature a traditional theme with the holly & berries stamp from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set, a Stampin' Up! favorite returning for a second holiday season. I hope you'll watch my video and learn this wonderful stamping technique then apply it to your own hand stamped cards. Cutting dimensions and a complete supply list can be found below.

I love holly & berries. They're such a traditional part of Christmas and holiday decor. I knew the holly & berries stamp from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set would be perfect for making a traditional Christmas card with the Triple Layer Stamping Technique. I love these card. How about you?

The sentiment inside the card is a continuation of the sentiment on the front of the card. I love when Stampin' Up! pairs sentiments for both inside and outside of our hand stamped cards.

Embossing Makes Cards Extraordinary!

Embossing takes your handmade cards to an extraordinary level. Whether you emboss with embossing folders or embossing powders & heat tool, your cards are sure to impress. You can do both of these techniques on all sorts of papers including card stock, vellum, and foil paper. In the video demonstration below, I'll show you "dry" embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder and "heat" embossing with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Tool. Both of these techniques will help you create extraordinary cards.

New Easy Card Sketch

Happy October! Today also marks the beginning of a brand new Stampin' Up! year. Through the course of 2020, I have challenged myself to learn and grow and try new things. I've taken some business training and participated in Stampin' Up! Leadership Summit. As I look ahead to the new year, I am excited. I'm encouraged. I'm motivated. I'm goal driven. I'm striving to better my best in all areas. I'm happy to be continuing on in my Stampin' Up! journey.

In my September 28, 2020, Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live, I introduced one of the easiest card sketches ever. I love using this card sketch to show off Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. The cards I made in the video below all feature the absolutely stunning Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. The fall prints, colors, and metallic accents make this one of my most favorite paper packs ever. I also used the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and coordinating punches in the 3 cards you'll see in my video and in the photos below. Enjoy this card making demonstration and consider the limitless possibilities when using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers with this easy card sketch.

Easel Cards Made Simple

Are you like me? You like cards with a "wow" factor but aren't into making cards that take so much precious time to make? My Magic in this Night Easel Cards have that "wow" factor and are both fun and easy to make with my video demonstration. There are so many variations on the Easel Card (I'll show some in future videos), but this one is the most simple I think. So if you've never made an Easel Card, or even if you have, I hope you'll check out my video below. It won't be long before we'll want to get some festive Halloween cards in the mail to our favorite people and some who may just need a fun pick-me-up.

 

A couple of Easel Cards with a bit of magic in them. "Magic?" you ask. I believe there's a bit of "magic" in the limitless possibilities we have creating with  Magic in this Night Suite products from Stampin' Up!

The Cat Punch is a nice addition to the Magic in this Night Suite. Punch your Black Glitter Paper glitter side up, then again with the glitter side down to get cats facing different directions.

The punched Story Label and 1 1/2" Circle each have Stampin' Dimensionals under them. These stacked labels are what hold the card front up as if on an easel.

So many details make this Halloween card spooky and a bit elegant too.Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I cut the lacy bats on the following card from Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper with the Halloween Magic Dies.

I used the Metallic Mesh Ribbon in a unique way on the front of this card. No Bow. No knot.

I love how the bats seem to be "flying" off this Easel Card.
