Nothing's Better Than...

You have to love a fun card layout that is so versatile you want to use it over and over. That is exactly what you're going to see in this Facebook Live replay. I demonstrate a fun, easy, versatile card layout as I make a card using the Nothing's Better Than stamp set. I then use that same layout to make 2 more cards featuring the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. I think you're going to love what you see.


Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than - Mary Knabe
Ooooh, this card makes me dream of VACATION in a warm and sunny location or sitting poolside with friends.

Nothing's Better Than being able to use a favorite card layout over and over again as you will see in the photos below.
Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than - Mary Knabe

As you can see in the photos below, I changed out the Stitched Rectangle Die for a smaller one in my third card. Otherwise, the card layout is the same. You could do this same layout with other shapes or with flowers stamped, colored, and die cut with the Happiness Abounds Bundle. The sky's the limit.

Spring is in the air. I'm enjoying some warmer temperatures and lots of sunshine in central Ohio today. I can't wait to see spring flowers in my yard and on my walks in a few weeks. Until them, I'm enjoying some tulips in paper form with the Flowering Fields Suite by Stampin' Up!. This MEGA suite is filled with wonderful products that will make you smile the whole time you're creating with it.  And the projects you make will surely make others smile too.

In this video replay of my February 28th Facebook Live, I demonstrate how to  make each of these cards with a 3" x 3" square of Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. It's an easy technique that makes a big impact. I love it and hope you do too.

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

I sure hope that during this busy holiday season you are finding time to slow down, step back, and just enjoy the moments with the people around you.

I wish you peace and joy and a break from the hustle and bustle on this day.

I love that this card layout not only showcases the beautiful Tidings of Christmas Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper but also helps me use up those leftover strips that accumulate. I'm so happy with the way this card turned out.

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Birthday

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop

I'm excited to be participating in my first Stampin' with Friends Blog Hop. A Card Sketch Challenge with a Birthday Theme is the focus of this blog hop. I created my own card sketch (my first of many, I hope) and then designed a birthday card with it. My card features products from the Pansy Petals Suite and one of our newest In Colors, Fresh Freesia. I hope you like this card as much as I loved designing it.

Pansy Petals Suite by Stampin' Up!

Such a pretty card for a spring birthday or simply for someone who loves flowers in general or pansies specifically.

The pansies were cut from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper using the small pansy die cut from the Pansy Dies. I fussy cut the small leaves from another print in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper pack. I placed a small Pale Papaya rhinestone from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in the center of each pansy for a bit of bling. I wrapped Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the entire card front and tied a knot at the right side. The sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink on Basic White card stock then punched with the Double Oval Punch. I decided to layer white on white ovals.

I die cut another small pansy from Pansy Petals DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card for an added touch.
