Arrow Fold Cards

Let me show you how to make these truly FUN Fun Fold cards. These are Arrow Fold Cards featuring the delightful Baby Pull Toys Stamp Set. This fun fold combined with Subtle colors of the card stock and Designer Series Paper and cute images from the Baby Pull Toys Stamp Set sure make delightful cards to welcome new babies or congratulate parents and grandparents. I hope you enjoy viewing my video, and find the demonstration helpful and inspiring, inspiring enough that you decide to make a few Arrow Fold Cards of your own.

I made 4 Arrow Fold Baby Cards in classic baby colors. Choose colors that appeal to you or perhaps even match them to baby's nursery colors.

Hippest Hippos in town!

When I first saw the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating Hippo Dies in the July - August Sale-A-Bration  Brochure, I just knew I had to have them. What I didn't know, though, was just how much fun I would have with them. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I'll show you how to color the hippos and then make a card that is "cuteness overload". ***Please note that this video isn't quite up to my usual. Facebook Live was giving me fits and not letting see my usual screen with the buttons to manage the FB Live. (Facebook has been making LOTS of updates and changes that I was still trying to learn and navigate.) So...you'll see things a bit backwards...like me being left-handed which I'm not. ;)  But, with a little patience and understanding from my viewers, I powered through, and it ended up not being so bad. AND I think I have the new FB changes figured out for my next Facebook Live.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side
  • Basic White card stock = 8 1/8" x 3 1/8" (cut 2)
  • DSP = 8" x 3"
  • DSP or card stock for grass = 3" x 1", tear along one long side

The card below is my original sample. I really like it but the cute hippos are competing with a busy background. I think I like the more subtle Balmy Blue background on the card above.Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos - Mary Knabe

Easel Cards Made EASY!

I'm delighted to bring you this video demonstration on making Easel Cards. You are going to love this Fun Fold and be surprised at how easy it really is to make if you haven't tried it yet. You'll also get a look at some cool new In Colors and a brand new bundle. All coming with the launch of our new Annual Catalog on May 4th. Be ready to listen and learn, and pay special attention to my tips on using the Stamparatus in creating with Builder Punches.

This is my sample easel card I made to show before demonstrating. I love the 3 new In Colors I used and how they compliment each other. They are Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.

Builder Punches can be tricky to use. I hope you picked up some tips from my video to make using the Flowers & Leaves Punch and other builder punches easier.

The easel card below was made with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set without the coordinating Flowers & Leaves Punch. Instead I chose to color the stamped image with Stampin' Blends.
