A simple change of the Designer Series Paper comes in handy when you need to make a bunch of cards.

I think the Linen Thread double bow is a nice accent for this Boho basket.

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.

Gilded Autumn Thanksgiving Favors

The ever so popular Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper is back in stock. This paper has been re-stocked several times because of its popularity and demand. It was back ordered for a while then went was not even available to order, but it's back now. Order your Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP now to make your autumn and Thanksgiving cards and paper crafts. This DSP and the entire Gilded Autumn Suite is GORGEOUS. Don't be fooled by its name, though, because it's not just for fall and Thanksgiving. Many of the DSP prints can be used for other occasions such as sympathy, thinking of you, support and encouragement cards. Many would be great to use for masculine cards. Nature lovers would appreciate the beautiful color combination and botanical prints and patterns. And of course, the Gilded Autumn products would make great birthday, thank you, congratulations, and retirement cards too. 

I hope you'll enjoy the following video demonstration in which I use the Gilded Autumn Suite to decorate Rectangle Tins to use as decorations, place cards, and treat favors all in one for my Thanksgiving table. These personalized gifts are such fun to make. Mine will be filled with candies, but I bet together we can come up with lots of things to put in these decorative tins.

 

I'm excited to make a few more of these Gilded Autumn Decorated Tins - one for each of my Thanksgiving guests. They'll look so pretty as place cards to decorate my Thanksgiving table.

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.

Boho Indigo is BEAUTIFUL!

Finally, I took some time to create with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. What a beautiful assortment of products from the stamp set and dies to the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, many sheets of cut outs in Very Vanilla and metallic gold, two ribbons, and felt flower embellishments. It truly is a great value at $70. This is the first card I made with the Boho Indigo products. I'll definitely be making many more.

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.

I embellished this card with leaves and acorns punched from Designer Series Paper with the Autumn Punch Pack and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon is one from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

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.

Easel Card fully opened. As you can see there's plenty of space to write a Halloween message.

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.
