Artisan Additions Dies Take 2

In my last post, you saw me demonstrate using 2 of the 3 dies in the Artisan Additions Dies collection. Now, I'll show you 3 very different cards made with the 3rd die in that set. I also feature products from the Awash In Beauty Suite and Go To Greetings Stamp Set. Please watch the entire video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live to see me demonstrate how to make all three of the cards below as well as a unique way of using the new Decorative Circle Punch. This one is a bit longer than most of my videos, but it's packed full of stampin' goodness. 

I recently demonstrated the Off-Center Z-Fold card with the Hey Sports Fan Suite. Here it is again with the Artisan Additions Dies and Awash in Beauty Suite. This may just be my favorite new fun fold.Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

The Off-Center Z-Fold card is great for showing off your favorite Designer Series Papers.

Cutting Dimensions for Off-Center Z-Fold Cards:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 11", cut off 1/4" to make base 5 1/2" x 10 3/4", (do not discard 1/4 strip as it is used on this card).
  • Score card base at 3 1/2" and 6 3/4" on long side.
  • DSP on front/left panel = 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
  • DSP on middle panel = 3" x 5 1/4"

I hope you watched the video to see how I punched the ends of the Happy Birthday banner using the new Decorative Circle Punch. Make your punches more versatile by finding new ways to use them as I did on this card.

Brewed For You Angled Gate Fold Card

While looking for inspiration for my August 7th Facebook Live, I discovered that it was National Beer Lovers Day. SO, I decided to pay tribute to all those who enjoy a cold brew by using the Brewed For You Stamp Set & coordinating Brewed Dies. AND, I also wanted to demonstrate how to make an Angled Gate Fold Card at the request of one of my Stampin' Peace followers. I love the fun fold card I came up with this for this Facebook Live and am sharing the Video Replay of the demonstration for you here. I hope this demonstration inspires you to make an Angled Gate Fold Card (or a few) and perhaps, add the Brewed For You Bundle to your next order. I was thinking in the demonstration as you will hear, that you could easily make a frosty mug of root beer by changing out the Crushed Curry ink to Early Espresso ink thus making this bundle a bit more versatile. Either way, it's fun to create with.

Pretty Cards made with Pretty Pop-Ups Dies

Hello Stampin' Peace Friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and fun Labor Day Weekend here in the USA. Emily came for the weekend which is always nice. She and her dad and I watched the UC vs. Arkansa game in the afternoon and the OSU vs. Notre Dame game here on Saturday evening. We missed Andrea & Jon as they were in WV celebrating their niece Charlie's 2nd birthday. (She was their flower girl in their wedding in June.) I prepared a game day spread including Buffalo Chicken Dip that I made for the first time. It was a big hit! Emily and I also did a little shopping at Costco and the mall, and now she is off playing golf with her dad while I get a little work in.

Today, I want to introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Pop-Ups Dies. O. M. G. You are going to LOVE them. They are truly one-of-a-kind and make such pretty cards. I hope you'll enjoy this Video Replay of my August 22nd Facebook Live. I think you will!

Masking Paper Techniques with Forever Fern

Before jumping into today's project, I want to share what took place one afternoon this week in my Stampin' Peace Studio. I had some young crafters visit. My niece Avery has been watching Jameson, Addison, and Beau this summer, and asked if she could bring them over for a "crafternoon". Of course, I said yes. (FYI...these same kids were here 2 years ago when my other niece Alison watched them, so it was fun to have them back. And they were excited to be back.)

Left to right in photo above, 2nd graders Beau and Addison, my niece Avery who is starting her sophomore year at The Ohio State University, and 4th grader Jameson.

We first made cards from the April 2021 So Cool Paper Pumpkin Kit. Do you remember it? Each child made 2 popsicle cards, 1 watermelon card, and 1 rainbow card. They each talked about giving one to their new teacher as "Meet the Teacher" was the next day. They decorated blank art journals with stickers and then ecorated gift bags to put their cards and other goodies in using Stampin' Write markers. Then we had an ice cream treat. Afterwards, the kids could create on their own using card stock and retired Designer Series Paper. They made signs for their rooms and cards for their mom and dad. All in all, it was a fun "crafternoon" for all of us.

My sister Joan (Avery's mom) stopped over. The kids had fun sharing what they made with her.

The kids are ready to head home with all their paper crafts and big smiles. And I got big hugs!

Hippest Hippos in town!

When I first saw the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating Hippo Dies in the July - August Sale-A-Bration  Brochure, I just knew I had to have them. What I didn't know, though, was just how much fun I would have with them. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I'll show you how to color the hippos and then make a card that is "cuteness overload". ***Please note that this video isn't quite up to my usual. Facebook Live was giving me fits and not letting see my usual screen with the buttons to manage the FB Live. (Facebook has been making LOTS of updates and changes that I was still trying to learn and navigate.) So...you'll see things a bit backwards...like me being left-handed which I'm not. ;)  But, with a little patience and understanding from my viewers, I powered through, and it ended up not being so bad. AND I think I have the new FB changes figured out for my next Facebook Live.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side
  • Basic White card stock = 8 1/8" x 3 1/8" (cut 2)
  • DSP = 8" x 3"
  • DSP or card stock for grass = 3" x 1", tear along one long side
