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.

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"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 1 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 3 1/2" x 2"

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.

Create Fast & Fabulous Cards

Today's focus is on creating a set of cards quickly and easily when you needs lots or just want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand when needed. And we always need birthday cards. Everyone we know has a birthday, right? In the following video, I demonstrate 2 layouts, same but sized differently, to help you make a stack of cards in a jiffy. The first layout allows you to make 9 cards with 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. The second layout allows you to make 12 cards with 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. The "Fast & Fabulous" card made for this post feature the Go To Greetings Stamp Set and Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper. Watch, learn, then pull out your card stock and Designer Series Paper to prep for your own set of Fast & Fabulous cards.

The 5 cards you see below are the ones I demonstrated in my FB Live which went out to 5 lucky viewers after my June 6th Facebook Live. (I very often give a way the cards I make in my Lives). These are just 5 of the total 21 I made using the 2 layouts shown in my demonstration. After finishing my Live, it took me just about an hour to complete the other 16 cards including adding the white card stock to the inside of each card and embellishing the card fronts. When I say these are Fast & Fabulous Cards, they really are.

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.

Sun Prints in Gray Granite

Have you seen the gorgeous new Sun Prints Suite in the Annual Catalog? If not, be sure to check it out on pages 90 - 91. It's got an amazing stamp set & dies bundle, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and a fun Fern Embossing Folder. With a little creativity and imagination and inspiration, the possibilities are endless.

In this video replay of my May 20th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make 2 gorgeous cards with some of the Gray Granite prints in the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack. You'll see how to die cut a shape and then use both the positive and negative pieces to make 2 cards. You know me, if I can make 1 card, I might as well make 2. Right? A great way to build up a nice stash of cards to have on hand.

 

Stampin' Up! Sun Prints Suite - Mary Knabe For these 2 cards, I die cut the large rectangular label shape from the Painted Labels Dies from a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" DSP. I used the negative or "frame" piece for one card and the positive or "label" piece for the second card. The Vellum and Rustic Metallic Dots greatly enhance these simple but elegant cards.

Sending Sunshine & Good Feelings

Hmmmm, what can you do to have a little fun and spread joy and good feeling to others? Make and send a handmade card, of course! I created this cheerful, sunny card with the new Good Feelings Stamp Set from the 2022 - 2023 Annual Catalog and the Tulip Fields Stamp Set from the 2022 January - June Mini Catalog. As you'll see in my Facebook Live video replay below, the Stamparatus, our perfect stamp placement tool, plays an integral part in creating this card.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic Black card stock = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Basic White scrap for die cutting smallest circle from Layering Circles Dies = approximately 3" x 3"

Stampin' Up! Good Feelings & Tulip Fields Stamp Sets - Mary KnabeThis card is sure to bring sunshine and smiles to the person receiving it.

As seen in my video, the Stamparatus is essential for getting a good clean look to the entire stamped sentiment.

A Money Card "To the Man who does Everything"

Sometimes we want to do something special for that special man who does everything for others, but we just don't know what to get. Why not let that person pick out their own gift?

The money card I make in this video demonstration features several new Stampin' Up! products including the He's All That Bundle and Perfectly Penciled DSP and products in the new Tahitian Tide In Color. You can easily adapt this money card for your specific needs by swapping out the stamp set, DSP, colors, etc. Anyone receiving cash in a Pocket Money Card you make will be doubly delighted with your gift.

Free Project Sheet - Wild & Sweet Panda

Oh, my. Happy Friday the 13th. Are you superstiscious? Not me. So let's celebrate. It's Friday. The end of another great week of living and loving life.

Love animals? How about wild animals? How about Wild & Sweet animals like this darling panda. This is just one of 3 darling animals in the brand new Wild & Sweet Stamp Set. It also features a bit of the new all black & white Perfectly-Penciled Designer Series Paper. You'll love this DSP for simple black & white or black & white with a pop of color cards and paper crafts. Or  customize it with any of your coloring tools. 

I made this card for a recent demonstrator swap I participated in. I think everyone loves it. It's simple and sweet and so easy to make. I'm happy to share a free project sheet with you so you can make it too.

Embossing Folder Techniques

I sure am excited about this post. I had SOOOOOO much fun demonstrating lots of Embossing Folder Techniques in a recent Facebook Live. You are going to love all the different ways of using embossing folders adding more value to your embossing folders. Embossing folders are a small thing that can make a BIG impact on our cards and paper crafts. The cards and techniques I show in this video feature Stampin' Up!'s brand new Fern 3D Embossing Folder. Definitely a new favorite embossing folder for me. I hope you find this video helpful and inspiring and fun too. I'd love to see how you use some of these easy and fun embossing folder techniques.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for embossing = 4 3/4" x 3 1/2
  • Card stock layers for So Saffron and Evening Evergreen cards = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • 2 rectangle corner layers for Soft Succulent cards = 3" x 4 1/4" or size of your choice.
  • Metallic Gold strips = 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

The 2 cards below show the difference between the "embossed" and "debossed" sides of the card stock.
Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder - Mary Knabe (5)

For the 2 cards below I applied Soft Succulent Ink to one side of the embossing folder with a Blending Brush, embossed the white card stock, then cleaned the embossing folder and then repeated the process inking the other side of the embossing folder before embossing the white card stock.Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

For the following 2 cards, I embossed the white card stock pieces, then applied ink. I used a Blending Brush to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the left and used a Stampin' Sponge to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the right. Two very different looks, a softer look versus a bolder look.
