Well Suited in 2 Styles!

Take a look at two styles of masculine cards I created with the Well Suited Suite by Stampin' Up! One card is created using several coordinating papers from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack. The other card is a fun fold card and features one piece of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper but showcases BOTH sides of it. Take a look at my video replay below of a recent Facebook Live I did. You'll get all the dimensions you need plus some tips for successful card making as you view my video demonstration of these two masculine cards. Of course, these layouts are perfect for any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers. 

 

I absolutely LOVE this Well Suited Suite but most especially its Designer Series Paper. It's perfect for making masculine cards to celebrate the special men and boys in your life. It's bright. It's bold. It's fun. I created two a great cards featuring this fabulous Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

Look at all the details, in addition to the many pieces of DSP, I used on this card to make it fun and interesting! Twine in Basic Gray & Night of Navy, Matte Black Dots, and card stock punched with the Double Oval Punch. They're all great separately, but together, they're a party celebrating your special guy!

The card below features one of my new favorite fun folds because I love being able to feature BOTH sides of my favorite Designer Series Papers as often as I can. This is another great card layout that will work with any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers by Stampin' Up!

Yes, you can add multiple colors to a single stamp image. I colored on the butterfly and hummingbird solid stamps with Stampin' Write Markers.

3 Ways to Showcase BOTH sides of your favorite DSP

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers - I just can't get enough of them. So many choices of DSP collections in an array of themes, images, colors, and patterns. Don't even ask me to name my favorite. I can't choose just one as my favorite. AND, yet, there is a common problem when I use my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. Often times, I like many of you I'm sure, find it difficult to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to use on my card or project. What's a paper crafter to do??? Well, in today's video, I have 3 solutions. 3 card layouts you can use to showcase BOTH sides of your Designer Series Paper. Yes, I said BOTH sides of the DSP. You don't have to choose. Hooray!

Please enjoy watching this video replay of a recent Facebook Live, then start creating with your favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. And, if you come up with your own unique ways to showcase both sides of your DSP, be sure to share them!

 

Sweet raspberries in shades of Rich Razzleberry and a "book binding" fold make showcasing both sides of this paper easy and fun.

I snipped a 2" line from the center of the right edge to the middle of my DSP and folded back the corners to create this fun fold showing off both sides of my paper. It's unexpected, clever, and so easy!

I used a 3/4" x 4" strip of coordinating Designer Series Paper for an added touch to the inside of the card.

This sweet strawberry hello card was created using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Punch out 4 pieces of DSP and flip 2 over so everyone can enjoy both sides of this cheery DSP.

Sweet, Sweet Strawberry!

While I love a pretty winter snow (which is not happening in central Ohio this week), the gray days can be long and make me wish for warmer, sunnier days. Today's Sweet Strawberry birthday cards remind me of warm days and bright sunshine. I enjoyed making these cards and combining the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set & Strawberry Builder Punch in the January - June Mini Catalog with the Berry Delightful DSP from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. What a great combination of products. The Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green colors work so sweetly with them as well to create these bright, cheery cards sure to make anyone smile warmly.

Sending Happy Thoughts

There are so many reasons I love card making. I get to use amazing coordinating products in an array of fabulous colors and themes too numerous to name or count. I get to belong to a community of creative people who understand my love for stamping and paper crafting and inspire me to keep on stamping and creating. I get to express myself creatively and add my own personal touch to my correspondences. I get to inspire and teach others to enjoy stamping and paper crafting like I do. Best of all, card making keeps me spreading love, kindness, and happy thoughts in challenging times by sending the hand stamped cards I've made.

I made this beautiful set of cards to let friends and family they are thought of and loved. They feature the Hydrangea Hill Suite and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set - 2 of my favorite new products in the new January - June Mini Catalog. I hope you love these cards as much as I do. If so, you can download the Free Project Sheet I created for you.

True Love - Black & White with Pops of Color

True Love Designer Series Paper from the new Love You Always Suite in our 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog makes it easy to create fun black & white cards with pops of color. While the Love You Always Suite does include images & sentiments for Valentine cards, it is also very versatile. This suite makes beautiful cards for anniversaries, bridal showers, engagements, and weddings and simply to tell people they are loved. AND, while the black & white True Love Designer Series Paper can make beautiful feminine cards with its many floral images, it's also great for making masculine using the geometric patterns sides of the paper. 

So take a look now at my December 30th Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Live card making demonstration. I show you 2 ways to design cards using 4" x 6" pieces of your new favorite Designer Series Papers. You'll also get lots of ideas to add various pops of color to the black & white True Love Designer Series Paper for one-of-a-kind cards to bring love and smiles to those receiving your lovely cards.

 

The first 3 cards here show you how I used pieces of 4" x 6" DSP, cut down to 4" x 5 1/4" by cutting off 3/4" on one short side.  But don't get rid of those 3/4" strips as you can use them on your cards as shown in my video demonstration above and photos below.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I began adding pops of color to the following card by coloring with Stampin' Blends in Rococo Rose and Old Olive. Notice how I used the 3/4" strip of DSP on the inside of the card.
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Mixing and matching the fabulous sentiments and dies of the Forever & Always Bundle makes creating one-of-a-kind cards for special occasions so easy. How about that new Heart Charm embellishment as an accent on this card? I love it.
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Utilize your strips of Designer Series Paper to add interest to the inside of your cards!
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Ribbon and card stock in Just jade adds a simple touch of color to this pretty black & white card. Notice how I used the 3/4" strip of Designer Series Paper I cut off of the original 4" x 6" piece. Flip the DSP strip over for added detail.

Take a look at the gorgeous details in the DSP and dies used on this card.Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Using Magenta Madness adds a BIG POP of color on the following black & white True Love card.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Magenta Madness sure makes a statement against the black & white.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

A bow tied with Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is a fun accent for this card.

Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

 

In the following 3 cards, I started with 4" x 6" pieces of True Love Designer Series Paper with the geometric side up. Instead of cutting off a 3/4" strip, I actually tore the paper approximately 1 1/2" from one short side. TIP:  When I tear DSP or card stock, I prefer to hold it so that I tear towards me from top to bottom. In other words, I turned my DSP in a horizontal position, held it along the top with my left hand, placed my right thumb and index finger at top approximately 1 1/2" from the right side and pulled the paper toward my body. I feel like I have control of the paper as I'm tearing when I do it this way.

I added pops of color to this card with Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. I love the exposed torn edge of this card too.Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I added several pops of color with Sponge Daubers and ink pads.
Forever & Always Bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Isn't this a great sentiment for a card for a special friend??? I love it!!!

Quick & Easy Holiday Thank You Cards

I'm using up some of my Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to make some quick & easy Holiday thank you cards. I chose a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petal Stamp Set which I think is perfect for my holiday thank you cards.

Flowers for Every Season for Curvy Celebrations

It's always fun to mix and match Stampin' Up! products. I especially like to match the "old" with the "new" or described better as matching Annual Catalog products with new catalog products. In today's cards, I mix the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and 2020-2022 In Color products from the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog with the Quite Curvy Bundle from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I have prepared a Free Project Sheet for you to make this card. I hope you will download it now and enjoy it for making Quite Curvy cards today and in the future. Download Project Sheet - Quite Curvy Cards with Flowers for Every Season DSP

Dandy Garden Fun Fold Cards

I received these from my Stampin' Up! upline Susi Brunk & 2nd upline Sherrie Parker last week. A cute little canvas decorated with the Brightly Gleaming Suite products and a coordinating fun fold card. I used the fun fold card as inspiration for my December 20th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live.

Here are a couple more of this same Fun Fold Card I made by mixing and matching more of the Dandy Garden DSP.

The Dragonflies Punch is such a great part of the Dandy Garden Suite. You can punch your stamped dragonflies and punch dragonflies from the colorful Dandy Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper as I did for these cards. I love the extra effort Stampin' Up! puts into coordinating its many products.

Don't skip the video above if you want to learn 2 ways you can put 2 or more colors of ink on a single stamp as I did for stamping these coordinating envelopes.

I absolutely love Blackberry Bliss, and I love the brightness of the other colors against the very rich Blackberry Bliss color.
