6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder with Expressions In Ink

Well gosh, it's been a bit since I've posted to my blog. The past weeks have been a bit hectic and exhausting. I've been dealing with some family matters including working on wedding invitations, spending time with family over the Easter holiday, and helping a family member who became very ill last week. Fortunately, she is finally on the mend. In addition, I'm prepping kits for my highest number of participants ever for a recent class to go. Needless to say, that has put me behind in my social media posts, and I have missed it. I find that when I have to put my SU! business on the back burner at times for any reason, it confirms how much I love what I do and desire to do it more and better and for as long as I can. 

SO... moving on, I'm happy that I can jump back in this week. In today's post I'm sharing a very easy 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder to make 2 cards. This is a card layout you can use over and over for any occasion you wish for making and sending cards. Please enjoy the video demonstration, then give this One Sheet Wonder a try. And afterwards, please share you creations on my Facebook Business Page Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe or in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group to inspire others.

Cutting Dimensions to make 2 cards:

  • Card Base (cut 2) = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock inside (cut 2) = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Cut DSP as shown in Video so that you have 2 pieces measuring 3" x 3 1/2" and 2 pieces measuring 3" x 2 1/2"
  • Gold Foil (cut 2 pieces of each size) 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" and 3 1/4" x 2 3/4".
  • Basic White strip (cut 2) = 3 3/4" x 3/4"

Count On Me Dutch Door Cards

Oh, gosh, I've been a bit under the weather since last week and have been nursing myself back to health. I haven't had much of a voice in the last few days. One plus to living alone is it's easy to not talk and rest your voice.

Anyway, I have a fun card layout to show you. In this video demonstration, I show you how to make a Dutch Door Fun Fold Card. You won't believe how easy it is with great results. Featured products are the Count On Me Stamp Set and Abstract Beauty Designer Series Paper. So have a look then start making some Dutch Door Cards of your own. Be sure to share them and then spread some happiness by mailing them.

 

Cutting Dimensions for Dutch Door Fun Fold Cards:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side.
  • For card stock layer, turn card base to vertical position, and cut at 2 3/4" down to score line.
  • DSP layer = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock layer = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

Simple Stamping with Painted Poppies

It's time for some KISS & SIP, also know as Keep It Simple, Stampers, with Stamps, Ink, and Paper. I made 4 cards with just that - stamps, ink, and paper. It's where we all started, right? Simple stamping is great for beginners, those with limited supplies (no, we don't need it all to make beautiful cards), and those who just love a clean, simple style of cards.

I used the very same products and layout for each of the 4 cards below. 

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for all cards are the same

  • Basic Black card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Poppy Parade layer = 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • Basic Black layer = 4 3/8" x 3 1/8"
  • Old Olive layer = 4 1/4" x 3"
  • Basic White layer = 4" x 2 3/4"

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe (3)
Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe (3)These cards with bunches of poppies combine coloring the poppies with Stampin' Blends in Poppy Parade and the stamping and stamping off (stamping without re-inking) of the splatter for leaves with an Old Olive ink pad. Change up the sentiment and the orientation of the card and you have 2 different but highly similar cards to send.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe

The card below requires no coloring of the poppy and leaves at all, just stamping with stamps in the Painted Poppies set.

I want to point out that each of the different sentiments is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. This is one of my go-to sets for sentiments that I would highly recommend for everyone. There's a good variety of greetings in pretty fonts.

 

Did you know that poppies are a symbol for US veterans? You could turn these into Thank You cards to honor our US veterans.

Techniques with Amazing Thanks & Other Word Dies

We all love word dies for making fabulous cards, scrapbook pages, collages, and more. In this video demonstration, I'll introduce you to a fun technique using the Amazing Thanks Dies and all our word dies. Watch, then put your word dies to use in a new way!

Stampin' Up! Amazing Thanks Dies - Mary Knabe (2)

Stamin' Up! Amazing Thanks Dies - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for Fresh Freesia Thanks Card:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Below you'll see additional ways to use the Amazing Thanks Dies. I love having several ways we can use our Stampin' Up! products.

 

For this card I used both the Amazing Silhouette Stamp Set and Amazing Thanks Dies. Stamping in Shaded Spruce ink directly onto the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper really adds a lot of interest to this card. Card stock colors used were Shaded Spruce and Basic Gray.

Cutting Dimensions for Tree Thanks Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • DSP = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

Cutting Dimensions for You Are Amazing Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • DSP 1 = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • DSP 2 = 5 1/4" x 2"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Making one card is fun but making two is even better. You can die cut once and make 2 cards by using both the negative and positive pieces from your die cutting. As shown in the pair of cards below, I die cut the word Thanks from Pattern Party DSP. I used that large piece of DSP with the words cut out for one card front and and adhered the die cut word itself to the front of a second card. Card stock used to make this card is Granny Apple Green and Basic White.

Techniques with Simply Scored Scoring Tool

You know how I love to find alternate uses for my many Stampin' Up! products. Today, I'm sharing with you ways to use your Simply Scored Scoring Tool for techniques other than simply scoring card bases. In this Facebook Live video replay, I'll demonstrate a few different ways to create decorative scoring and give you a few tips to help do that.

Frame your entire card front or just a couple of corners with decorative score lines made with your Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

FYI...Please note that the decorative scoring techniques can also be done using the Paper Trimmer with the attached Scoring Blade. I find it, however, that the Simply Scored Scoring Tool is a great investment for many people. It's great for quickly scoring card stock for large amounts of card bases. I find it a bit easier to do the decorative scoring techniques as well. Perhaps, try these techniques using both the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade and see what you prefer.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the March 2022 Beyond the Horizon Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I know many people are still waiting for their March Kit due to a shipping issue. I was fortunate and surprised to have received my so am sharing a few alternate cards for you here. This one stumped me a bit as all of the card bases are so beautiful, I hated to cover them up. After playing with kit contents for a bit, I found a way to embellish the card bases with sentiments and die cuts without covering up too much of each of the beautiful card fronts. I hope you like them as much as I do.
