Splendid Thoughts Fun Fold Cards

Card swaps are a great way to be inspired and get new project ideas and card layouts. In my August 19th Facebook Live, I demonstrated a Fun Fold Card I learned from a swap card created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and friend, Renee Kohnke. I love it and think you will too. This fun fold is similar to a Side-Step Card but much easier. Enjoy this Facebook Live Replay, then plan to make a few of this new-to-me Fun Fold Card. Perhaps, it's new to you too. My cards feature the Splendid Day Suite with its gorgeous Specialty Designer Series Paper and stamp set & dies.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Large Z-Fold card base = 5 1/2" x 8" (not 8 1/2"), scored at 1", 2", 5" on long side
  • Card front panel = 3" x 6", scored at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Basic White inside card = 5 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  • DSP 1 = 5 1/4" x 2 3/4" and 5 1/4" x 3/4"
  • DSP 2 = 4" x 2 3/4"

The following card is very similar to the one above, however, I used the reverse side of each piece of the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper, decorated the card front differently and without a sentiment, and have the front panel left of center.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Lots of Pun

Welcome to the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. It's always fun to create alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin kit each month, then join in the blog hop to share these projects with all of you.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" cards.

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

Cutting Dimensions for 2 cards shown above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4" on long side

  • card stock layer for stamping = 4 1/4" x 3"

Quick Tip Tuesday - Make a Frame with Dies

For today's Quick Tip Tuesday, I'm demonstrating how to make "frames" to use on your cards, scrapbook pages, and collages. It's super easy and gives even more versatility to your dies when you mix and match them to use in this unique way. Take a look and give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

Here's the card I made using the Pale Papaya frame I made in the video above. I used the largest Scalloped Contour Die with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. It's easy to mix and match dies and the possibilities are endless. Consider making frames of different sizes and widths or even different shapes of dies like circles.

Masking Technique with Delicate Dahlias

Masking isn't just for stepping up your Halloween Costumes. In fact, Masking is the name of the Stamping Technique I demonstrate for you in this video. You will love it. I make it easy with my tips. You'll be amazed at the depth that it creates in your stamping. It's a great technique to use with flowers and groups of images or even to create a scene like the Peaceful Deer standing in front of or behind a tree. So watch, learn, then grab your sticky notes and Paper Snips and get started masking.

Card Dimensions:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Mossy Meadow layer = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

 

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is perfect for demonstrating the Masking Technique. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set I got FREE. You can too when you place a $100 Stampin' Up! order with me by September 30th.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

 All you need to get started masking is some sticky notes and your Paper Snips!
Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

The results you get with the Masking Technique are amazing. The dahlias look more realistic with flowers in front of and behind others and with the stamped leaves behind the flowers.

A Lovely Engagement Card

In case you haven't heard...there's going to be a wedding in my family. Andrea said yes to Jon's proposal on July 10th. I'm so excited for this couple. I've never seen my daughter as happy as she has been the last year and a half since she met Jon, and I'm happy to have Jon as a son-in-law. 

Andrea & Jon's engagement

Here is the card I made for Andrea and Jon congratulating them on their engagement. I used 2 brand new products from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog launching August 3rd - the Strong of Heart Stamp Set and Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I love the silver heat embossed imaged colored with Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

How blessed I am to be Mom to Andrea and her sister Emily, and now I get to welcome Jon to our family. I'm looking forward to lots of love and laughter as we plan for Andrea and Jon's wedding. 2022 will be a BIG year with the wedding and Emily's graduation as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter. Thanks for visiting stampinpeace.com.

PS. We have a wedding date and venue! 


Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.
