ICS Blog Hop 2022 - 2024 In Colors

Welcome to the June 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "Meet the New In Colors". Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis - such fabulous names for such fabulous colors. They're bright. They're cheerful. They make me happy. They work so well together but also combine well with many of our other Stampin' Up! colors. All of the 2022 - 2024 In Color projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy our Meet the New In Colors blog hop.

6a01b8d1640c2c970c026bdee744bc200c-500wi

For this blog hop post, I chose to use all 5 new In Colors on 1 card. I think they're fun, festive colors so decided I'd create a birthday card. Then as I was creating, I thought, "why not turn it into a gift card holder", something I always need. I hope you enjoy my gift card holder featuring the 2022 - 2024 In Colors and will give it a try. It's really quite quick and easy and is just as much fun to make as it will be to give to someone special.

Fabulous Fun Fold Card & Feeling Loved, Valued, Appreciated by SU!

I'm excited to share with you today, the many wonderful gifts I received from Stampin' Up! for being a 2022 Incentive Trip Achiever. Earning an incentive trip is a pretty big deal as less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide earned this reward. The gifts are amazing as you will see in the second half of this post, but first I need to share a truly FUN and EASY Fun Fold Card inspired by a card created by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts for a recent card swap. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one and share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy this video demonstration and will plan to make your own version of this Fun Fold Card and perhaps even share it on my Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Page.

I received this card from SU! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts in a recent card swap and used it as the inspiration for my May 6th Facebook Live and today's blog post.

This week, Emily and I were supposed to be on the 2022 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip I earned. It was to be a Western Caribbean Cruise. SU!, however, made the decision to cancel it last fall due to Covid. While I was sad to not be able to take Emily on this trip and to not gather with the other SU! 2022 Incentive Trip Achievers, I still owe a big THANK YOU to Stampin' UP! for the wonderful gifts they sent. Just another way Stampin' Up! has made me feel loved, valued, and appreciated for the work I do. (Less than 1% of SU! Demonstrators worldwide earned the 2022 incentive trip. It takes a lot of hard work, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to earn such a reward.) 

Many customers, team members, and followers have asked me what the gifts were. So here's a look at them now.

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"

A St. Patrick's Day Decoration from my Dollar Store Find

I found this little piece of home decor at the Dollar Store. I purchased it with the intent to reuse the frame and came up with a quick and easy St. Patrick's Day decoration. I love how it turned out. It took very little time, used only a handful of products, and cost next to nothing to make. AND it's quite cute! My photos walk you through the process from Dollar Store find to cut holiday decoration.

Dollar Store Craft with Stampin' Up! Heart Punch - Mary KnabeCut a 6" x 6" sheet of Garden Green Designer Series Paper into 2" strips. Punch out 3 hearts from each strips. Be sure to "flip" DSP between punches to maximize your DSP. You will use all 9 hearts punched to make the shamrock.

Punch a stem for your Shamrock from a scrap of the DSP as shown in photo below.

Now, let's fold 6 of the 9 hearts in half and then layer and adhere 2 folded hearts to a flat heart by applying glue down along the folds only.

I arranged the 3D hearts and stem into the shape of a shamrock and adhered them to 4" square piece of Gold Foil. I adhered Garden Green card stock to the inside of the frame, then adhered the shamrock on gold foil to it. A fun and festive little piece of home decor just in time for St. Patrick's Day from my Dollar Store find.

Fun Cards with Floating Strips Technique

In today's Facebook Live video replay, you'll see a fun technique using paper strips done 2 ways - one with card stock strips, the other with a piece of DSP cut into strips. A piece of Window Sheet is used as a base for the strips. With so many card stock colors and Designer Series Paper with various card layouts, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy watching my demonstration, the put this technique to use in your own craft room. It's easy and makes creating and sending your handmade cards even more fun. Plus the people who receive your cards are sure to smile with delight and gratitude. So click on the video below then give the floating strips technique a try today.

Stampin' Up! Floating Strips - Mary Knabe (1)

Confession Time:  I have to admit, I totally forgot to "float" the window sheet with card stock strips by adhering it to my card stock with Stampin' Dimensionals. Hello??? You know how much I love using Stampin' Dimensionals, right? I use them on nearly every card I make. Yet, I forgot to use them on my Floating Strips Card above. Ooooops. It's still a pretty card and you get the idea, right!


Stampin' Up! Floating Strips - Mary Knabe (1)I adhered DSP strips to Window Sheet in order then cut out a circle from it with the largest Layering Circles Dies and my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Using dies to cut out your Floating Strips adds even more variety and possibilities for creating unique cards. 
Stampin' Up! Floating Strips - Mary Knabe (1)Yep, my strips are floating on this card! LOL
