Fall One Sheet Wonder

The Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack is full of plaids of varying sizes and color combinations. This Designer Series Paper is so versatile and will keep you creating beautiful cards and paper crafts for holidays and special occasions all year long. In the following video demonstration, I show you a very easy 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder to make 3 unique cards. In addition to the Plaid Tidings DSP, I feature the lovely Borders Abound Stamp Set and Holiday Rhinestones. I think you'll enjoy the fall cards I've prepared and demonstrated in this video replay of my September 14th Facebook Live video replay.

Use the following photo for your cutting guide for this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder.

The new Banners Pick A Punch is a great tool for punching 2 different banner cuts on 1/2", 3/4", and 1" strips of card stock and Designer Series Paper.

Linen Thread and Holiday Rhinestones are wonderful embellishments to dress up these fall cards.

The card stock sizes on the inside of the first & third cards match the card stock layers on the front of the cards and sure do dress up the inside of the cards.

Autumn is just around the corner. As I look forward to the changing colors of the fall leaves here in Ohio, I am reminded that with change comes beauty, and like the leaves on our trees, sometimes it is ok to let go. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Open If You Dare!

Take a look at this! My Fun Fold Gift Card Holder featuring the Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up! is awesome, if I do say so myself. It's fun. It's spooky. It's creepy. It's even a bit elegant. There are so many interesting details making this gift card holder fun and fabulous. Enjoy my video demonstration from my September 9th Facebook Live, then give it a try. You can make these for any holiday or occasion by simply changing out the colors, paper, embellishment, and stamp sets to suit the theme. Be sure to share your creations with me. Feel free to show them off by posting to my Stampin' Peace Vip Facebook Group and/or Stamp 'n Scrap with Mary Knabe Facebook Business Page.

 

It's funny how I see so much beauty in this somewhat spooky card. I simply love the many fine details I see in the Designer Series Paper, stamped images, and other elements of this card.Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

It's easy to turn any card into a gift card holder by adding a "pocket" made from a strip of Designer Series Paper.
Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I colored the flowers on the Happy Halloween label with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker & a Blender Pen and the leaves with Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!


By pulling up the panel decorated with the Happy Halloween label, one discovers a "card within the card". There's plenty of room to add a personal message to your friend or loved one here.

I don't care all that much for living spiders, especially in my house, but think these stamped spiders creeping inside this card are kind of fun for Halloween.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!

I used the Label Me Lovely Punch to "take a bite" out of the Designer Series Paper when creating the pocket to hold a gift card.

Magic in this Night Suite by Stampin' Up!
The Cherry Cobbler color adds a fun pop of color  - I'd say it's a pretty good "blood color" for this Halloween card with it's "Open If You Dare" greeting.

I'm looking forward to sending a Halloween surprise to some special people with these Magic in this Night Fun Fold Gift Card Holders next month.

If you look very, very closely, you can see my DSP seam along the left corner edge. Others will not even notice it, though, as they will be impressed by your creativity, and even more excited to see what's inside their Little Treat Boxes.

Roll up a few dollar bills, wrap and tie a bow with Baker's Twine or fine ribbon, and tuck inside this little box for a creative way to give birthday money!

These 2 Little Treats Boxes are simply elegant. I think they'd make wonderful table favors for a bridal shower, wedding, or anniversary. Perhaps, a tiny bag of mints would make a nice treat for these.

Gratitude = Happiness

My mother was a stickler for her kids sending thank you notes. Present times were also thank you note times. Birthdays, holidays, First Communion, Graduations - no matter the occasion, if we were given a gift of any sort, we were made to sit down and write a than you note. There was no getting out of it. Funny thing is, I liked writing to people, even thank you notes. I wrote letters to my cousin Rose who lived a couple hours away. I wrote to out of town grandparents and other relatives. I also learned to appreciate and cherish the thank you cards and hand written notes I received from others. My parents are both deceased, Dad 30 years and Mom 4 years), how grateful I am that I have letters they each wrote me in college plus a few cards I kept from my mom in her last few years. I love seeing their words written in their own handwriting. 

I'm so grateful for the opportunities I have as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator of 12 years to share card making with others. It gives us all, the opportunity to be creative and to reach out to others and spread kindness. I have no doubt our handmade cards are appreciated as we have created them with love. I believe the words we write in them carry just as much power as people just want to know they are thought of, loved, and appreciated. 

I've have worked hard this year in being more consistent with sending my Stampin' Up! customers a handmade card and a little Stampin' Up! gift each month as a small token of my appreciation for supporting me in my Stampin' Peace business. This way they get a little something to help them keep on stamping and making cards. And they have an extra handmade card in their stash to use when needed. I have gotten lots of positive feedback from doing this which I love, and it keeps me motivated to continue doing it into the future. 

* Be sure to Download Project Sheet - Forever Greenery Thank You Card so you can make this card too.
