Wildflower Path

I want to show you how to make beautiful cards with the Wildflower Path Stamp Set with 2 step stamping. I make it easy for you to use this often overlooked stamp set to make cards that give stunning results, so much so that you are going to want to own this pretty stamp set.

 

Cutting Dimensions for my first card shown below:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • DSP = 4" x 6", cut at 5 1/4" to form 2 pieces measuring 5 1/4" x 4" and 3/4" by 4 inches. The strip will be use on  inside of card.
  • Basic White card stock for inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for stamping = 4" x 4"
  • Ribbon = 5"

For the card below, I used many of the same elements as in my first card but made one significant change to create a fun fold card. I made a base of Mint Macaron card stock 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 layered with DSP measuring 4 5 1/4" x 4". I then cut a piece of 4" x 8" white card stock, scored and folded it in half to use as the card that opens to include your written message. Otherwise, the two cards are very similar.

Who knew that Embossing Folders could be so much fun? I love the new Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders for simple but WOW cards. At $8.00, this pair of Mini Embossing Folders are a must have. I paired the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders with the beautiful Silver Foil 12' x 12" Specialty Paper. I love the way these cards turned out and hope you will too.

He's the Man Gift Box with Hinged Lid

I love to create fun gift bags and boxes. Today, I'm exited to share one of those with you. I received this Gift Box with Hinged Lid from my friend and SU! team member at a recent girls' craft weekend. I immediately thought of ways I could make and use more of these. The possibilities are endless!

Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe (6)
Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe (6)

 

Enjoy this this Replay of my August 15th Facebook Live then make note of or print the template so you can make these fabulous gift boxes on your own. What a great way to package little gifts or gift cards!

 

Templates for Gift Box with Hinged Lid

  • You'll want to make the bottom of the box first, then the top. Be sure to watch video to see how the box is put together once you've cut and scored your card stock and designer series paper.

Below are a few of the gift boxes I made with the He's The Man Designer Series Paper.

Remember that mistake I made in the Live demonstration? Yep, I had my template upside down when I glanced over at it. Ever do something like that? Well, it happens. BUT, look what I did here? I used the opposite side of the DSP and was able to make it work for another gift box.

With a new school year starting for many, the thought of using this gift box with hinged lid for teacher appreciation gifts. Chocolates, gift cards, paper clips & office supplies are just a few of the many items you can put in these for your favorite teachers, classroom aides, and school staff. The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper were used to make the gift box below.

6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder with Abigail Rose DSP

I've got another fabulous 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder - my favorite kind.

AND for even more cards, cut one 12" x 12" sheet of DSP into four 6" x 6" squares and cut as instructed for a total of 16 cards.

He's The Man!

I love One Sheet Wonders - especially 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonders! They're fun. They're fast. They're manageable without being overwhelming like some of the larger OSWs can be. I shared the following 6" x 6" DOUBLE One Sheet Wonder a while back featuring the He's The Man DSP, but wanted to show it to you again.  Why??? Because I used it again with the same DSP but some alternate card layouts. If you missed my May 3rd blog post with the video demonstration (or just want a refresher), can see it below. But then KEEP SCROLLING because I have more cards to show you (some with alternate card layouts) using the same 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder.

6_ x 6_ One Sheet Wonder - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for card stock for 4 cards:

  • Card bases (cut 4) = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half
  • Basic White inside card (cut 4) = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Card stock layer (cut 4) = 3" x 3 1/4"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Stampin' Up! He's The Man DSP - Mary Knabe

I love the different themes included in the He's The Man Suite - BBQs, classic cars, camping, and even tools for the handyman.

The 2 sheets of dies cuts included in the He's The Man DSP make creating cards SUPER EASY. Great cards with no stamping made quickly. AND it's a great introduction to card making for first timers.

I can't seem to get enough of the Rustic Metallic Dot Embellishments. They're not only great for these masculine cards, but have been used on a wide variety of cards I've made for lots of different people and occasions.

Artisan Additions Dies

They are intended to add an extra element of creative and artistic expression to the cards and other paper crafts we make. The Artisan Additions Dies used with our other stamp sets and products open us up to limitless creative possibilities.

I hope you enjoy seeing the various ways I used the Artisan Additions Dies to create some amazing cards in this video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live.

Techniques with Amazing Thanks & Other Word Dies

We all love word dies for making fabulous cards, scrapbook pages, collages, and more. In this video demonstration, I'll introduce you to a fun technique using the Amazing Thanks Dies and all our word dies. Watch, then put your word dies to use in a new way!

Stampin' Up! Amazing Thanks Dies - Mary Knabe (2)

Cutting Dimensions for Fresh Freesia Thanks Card:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Below you'll see additional ways to use the Amazing Thanks Dies. I love having several ways we can use our Stampin' Up! products.

 

For this card I used both the Amazing Silhouette Stamp Set and Amazing Thanks Dies. Stamping in Shaded Spruce ink directly onto the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper really adds a lot of interest to this card. Card stock colors used were Shaded Spruce and Basic Gray.

Cutting Dimensions for Tree Thanks Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • DSP = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

Cutting Dimensions for You Are Amazing Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • DSP 1 = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • DSP 2 = 5 1/4" x 2"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Making one card is fun but making two is even better. You can die cut once and make 2 cards by using both the negative and positive pieces from your die cutting. As shown in the pair of cards below, I die cut the word Thanks from Pattern Party DSP. I used that large piece of DSP with the words cut out for one card front and and adhered the die cut word itself to the front of a second card. Card stock used to make this card is Granny Apple Green and Basic White.

  • DSP or Basic White layer = 4" x 3 1/2"
  • DSP strip on 2nd card = 4" x 3/8"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Die cut 'thanks' from DSP. Use the DSP with word hole on 1st card. Use die cut 'thanks' on 2nd card.

Look for the Last Chance Products List after 1pm MT today, March 23rd. Once the list is announced, I will post PDF's here and on my Facebook Business Page Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe and my Stampin' Peace VIP Group on Facebook.

Join me tonight at 8pm EST for my Facebook LIVE on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I'll be walking you through the current Annual Catalog and showing the retiring products. I think this is a little easier for you than looking at a long list. So grab your current Annual Catalog, a pen (I like to use red or some other bright color), and a beverage and join me at 8pm EST.

 

Have a great day! I'm looking forward to you joining me on Facebook this evening!


Loving me some Island Vibes!

Yep, I'm feeling some Island Vibes in the Stampin' Peace Studio this week. Check out the cards I made in a recent Facebook Live. I got the Island Vibes free with a $50 order, but had no idea I would love it as much as I do. And what a good time to use it and pretend I'm headed to a tropical island for some sun and sea when we were having an ice and snow storm in Ohio. I hope you will be inspired by this video demonstration below, then perhaps choose the exclusive Island Vibes Stamp Set as your free Sale-A-Bration product with your $50 order this month.

Have you tried this stamping technique that I used on the cards 2nd and 3rd card above? If not, I sure hope you will. Color on your rubber stamp with the paint brush end of your Stampin' Write Markers to stamp an image in more than 1 color. Be sure to "huff" or breathe heavily on the rubber stamp to remoisten the inks before stamping onto card stock.
