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.

Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be working and helping Andrea and Jon with final prep for their wedding on June 26th.

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.

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

Today, I want to introduce you to a brand new product - the Artisan Additions Dies. These dies are unique in that they do not match up to any particular stamp set. 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. 

 

I love that I could create 3 very different cards using the very same layout and same die on each of them.

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!

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 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.

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.

Marbleous! Simply Marbleous!

I am thrilled to show you my Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" DSP One Sheet Wonder x 6. In this Video Replay of my January 10th Facebook Live, you'll see me use 6 sheets of the Simply Marbleous DSP, one sheet of each color, all cut the same way. I call it my "One Sheet Wonder x 6". It makes 2 sets of 6 cards each plus a Slimline Card and Gift Tag using all 6 colors. It's easy. It's fun. And the cards are so pretty and work for just about any occasion. Use this method when you need to make several cards at once or when you want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand and use as needed.

So enjoy this video, then give my "One Sheet Wonder x 6" a try. FYI...you can get this Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order. Why not purchase some new punches, build your inventory of ink pads, or stock up on card stock? Or purchase a couple of stamp sets or a bundle you've got on your wish list. Whatever you choose for your $50 order, the Simply Marbleous DSP is a fun choice of a Sale-A-Bration freebie!

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" cards.
