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"

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.

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 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.

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.

Send a Bouquet of Thanks

The gift of thanks and gratitude is so important. People like to be acknowledged and appreciated for their work, their efforts, their gifts given. In today's post I'm sharing a video replay of my May 24th Facebook Live. In it I demonstrate 3 different cards using the Bouquet of Thanks Stamp Set and Watercolor Pencils. I'll also show you a technique allowing you to change out the "THANK YOU" to another sentiment making this stamp set even more versatile. With so many great coloring tools and fabulous Stampin' Up! colors to use with the Bouquet of Thanks Stamp Set, it's easy to great beautiful cards.

Cutting Dimensions for all 3 cards:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side.
  • Basic White inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Crumb Cake for stamping = 3 1/4" x 4 1/2
  • Crumb Cake layer = 3 3/8" x 4 5/8"
  • Other color card stock layer = 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

Card #1

Card #2Stampin' Up! Bouquet of Thanks Stamp Set & Watercolor Pencils - Mary Knabe (2)

I stamped and colored the entire image except for the banner. I then stamped the banner on a separate piece of Basic White card stock, cut it out with Paper Snips, and adhered it to the full image with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Card #3Stampin' Up! Bouquet of Thanks Stamp Set & Watercolor Pencils - Mary Knabe (2)

I covered the "THANK YOU" on the red rubber with Washi Tape, inked up the entire stamp with Crumb Cake ink, removed the Washi Tape, and stamped onto the Crumb Cake card stock. Doing this gave me a blank banner. Then I could stamp a different sentiment on the banner. Doing this adds to the versatility of the Bouquet of Thanks Stamp.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the May 2022 Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kit includes contents to make 10 cards, 10 gift card holders, or a combination of both cards and gift card holders. I'm excited as I always need gift card holders. Or you can use the contents of your kit and your own imagination and creativity to come up with some unique, one-of-a-kind projects. No matter what you create, I have a feeling you'll have lots of fun with this latest Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Here are my alternate cards. For this PPP blog post, I challenged myself to make 2 different cards using "throw away" pieces as stencils. It took some thinking "outside of the box" to create these, but I'm happy with the results. 

Stampin' Up! May 2022 Celebrating In Color PP Kit - Mary Knabe

The photos below show how I made each of my cards.

The Stamparatus was very useful in holding my stencil and card stock in place while I applied the In Color ink to each of the 5 spaces using Sponge Daubers.

I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment.

I cut the inked & stamped card stock to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Basic White layer measures 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". Basic Black layer is 4" x 5 1/4". Basic White Thick card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.

 

I used the piece left over from punching out the large banner die cut as my stencil for the next card.

After applying the ink, I removed the stencil, then cut along the straight lines of the large banner and adhered it to Basic White card stock measuring 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.
