A Fun Twist on my Pocket Card

I love making pocket cards. The one featured in my last post is really fun and easy to make. It starts with a 5 1/4" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper. (If you missed it, click here to view it now.) In today's Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate how to make a Fun Fold Card using the same elements used in my Pocket Card. So take a look at this video. Learn how you can add a couple more scores lines and cuts to that 5 1/4" x 12" piece of DSP to make this new Fun Fold Card. Of course, using the Beauty of the Earth Suite makes creating beautiful cards pretty darn easy too.


Cutting & Scoring Directions:

  • Card Base = 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • DSP = 5 1/4" x 12", score at 4" & 8", flip over and score at 2" & 10"
  • Basic White inside = 5" x 3 3/4"

 

I made this Fun Fold Card using the same Designer Series Paper, sentiment, punch, ribbon, and embellishments as on one of the Pocket Cards from the previous post. A few extra score lines on the DSP can change this combination of supplies from a Pocket Card to a Fun Fold Card.

By changing out the paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP pack and sentiment from Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, it was easy to recreate this Fun Fold Card as a Christmas or Winter Time card. I simply love it. The ribbons and embellishments I chose fit perfectly with the other elements making this card oh so pretty.

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Sneak Peeks

212049622_10219719043708496_5893127899089061058_n

The Stamping with Friends Blog Hop Challenge for today was to showcase a new product from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog which launches on August 3rd. By viewing all the blogs in this blog hop, you'll get lots of Sneak Peeks of wonderful new products to come and great samples too.

My card below features 3 brand new products coming in our Holiday Mini Catalog - the Thinking Thanks & Peace Stamp Set, Silver Foil Specialty Paper, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I stamped with VersaMark Ink, added Silver Embossing Powder, then applied heat with our Heat Tool. The dove was colored with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. To me, this card shows the same simplicity and beauty as the Peace on Earth message itself.

Fresh Fruit For All

I have loved creating with the amazing You're A Peach Suite. It is so fresh and fun. BUT, there is so much more to the Sweet As A Peach Bundle if you allow yourself to see it a new light. Think outside the box. Let your imagination take shape Can you envision creating other fruits with this bundle? Well, in my video below, I demonstrate how I used the Sweet As A Peach Bundle to make blueberries, cherries, plum, and apples. I bet you, like the viewers of this Facebook Live, can think of many more fruits you can make with this stamp set and dies bundle. The versatility of the Sweet As A Peach Bundle has opened me up to so many more ways to use it. 

Take a look at my video demonstration, then make a "fruit salad" of cards give or send. You'll be spreading love and summer fun!

Custom Made Designer Series Paper Envelopes

If you've been following my work for a while, or if you're new to Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, it doesn't take long for you to learn that I love Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. It is often time the first product I reach for when I sit down to design and create. I love that each piece of paper has a different print on each side. I love that the colors in the Designer Series Paper are true Stampin' Up! colors coordinating with all our other color products - ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments. AND so many of our Designer Series Papers also coordinate with other products such as stamp sets, dies, and punches. Stampin' Up! is known for its color coordination and product coordination. That's what I love most about using Stampin' Up! products, Designer Series Papers being one of my favorite products categories. I love them for cards, scrapbook pages, little favors, and so much more.

In the following video, I demonstrate quick and easy cards in 3 sizes each with coordinating envelopes made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. You can whip up these cards and envelopes in record time. The custom made DSP envelopes are so easy, especially after watching my video demonstration and using the templates pictured. Feel free to print the picture of the envelope templates for your future use.

Pretty Paper Piecing Cards

I'm so excited to show off one of my favorite stamp sets, Beautiful Moments, AND to show you a favorite technique too, Paper Piecing. Paper Piecing is so fun and can be used as an alternate method of coloring your stamped images. Enjoy my video demonstration. I hope you will be inspired to use the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set and to do some Paper Piecing on your own hand stamped cards.

FYI...My Paper Piecing Demonstratrion includes making 2 cards. If you joined my Facebook Live on the evening of 6/16, you will recall that just as I started making the 2nd card (the fun fold card) all the smoke alarms in my house started going off. Fortunately, I am fine and so is my house. Turned out to be 1 faulty smoke detector that tripped all the others too. Therefore, I demonstrated my 2nd card the next morning so be sure to check out BOTH videos below.

You're A Peach Center Easel Card

One of the many things I like to do in the summer months is visit local farm markets to get the freshest veggies and fruits I can. This year, I decided to take advantage of The Peach Truck when it comes to my community later this month. I'm so excited. I've invited my daughter Andrea to come over for the day to make "peach recipes" with me. So far I want to make a peach pie, peach salsa, and peach sangria. I'll probably put some in the freezer for smoothies too. Stampin' Up!'s You're a Peach Suite is perfect for summer crafting! Perhaps, I'll use it to make some cute gift tags to share my peach treats with others later this month.

For now, I love making cards and other paper crafts with this colorful suite of coordinating products. In this video, you'll learn to make what I call my Center Easel Card featuring the You're a Peach Suite. I think you're going to love it, and with my video demonstration and cutting and scoring dimensions, I make it easy for you to make it too. So watch, then gather your supplies and make a Center Easel Card yourself. Don't forget to share with me as I love to see what you all create. We can be inspired by each other. And most of all, don't forget to SEND your handmade card to bring a little sunshine and cheer to someone else. You'll be so glad you did and so will they!

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side. With card in horizontal position, cut 1" from each side of card front from bottom up to score line. Fold flaps back. On center piece, score at 2 1/8". ***This is easier to understand if you watch video first.
  • DSP for side panels = 4 1/8" x 7/8"
  • DSP for top and bottom of Center Easel = 3 3/8" x 2"
  • DSP for inside bottom = 5 3/8" x 1/2"
