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.

Abstract Beauty Fun Fold Cards

Fun Designer Series Paper + a fun-to-make Fun Fold layout = FAB-U-LOUS cards that are sure to bring smiles and fun to everyone!

Enjoy my video demonstration, note the cutting and scoring dimensions, then make some of these Fun Fold Cards of your own.

Marbleous! Simply Marbleous!

I am thrilled to show you my Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" DSP One Sheet Wonder x 6. In this Video Replay of my January 10th Facebook Live, you'll see me use 6 sheets of the Simply Marbleous DSP, one sheet of each color, all cut the same way. I call it my "One Sheet Wonder x 6". It makes 2 sets of 6 cards each plus a Slimline Card and Gift Tag using all 6 colors. It's easy. It's fun. And the cards are so pretty and work for just about any occasion. Use this method when you need to make several cards at once or when you want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand and use as needed.

So enjoy this video, then give my "One Sheet Wonder x 6" a try. FYI...you can get this Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order. Why not purchase some new punches, build your inventory of ink pads, or stock up on card stock? Or purchase a couple of stamp sets or a bundle you've got on your wish list. Whatever you choose for your $50 order, the Simply Marbleous DSP is a fun choice of a Sale-A-Bration freebie!

Stack & Shuffle Technique

Here's a fun technique that allows you to showcase your favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and make a set of 4 cards quickly and easily. You're going to love it, so start pulling out your favorite DSP so you can craft along with me in this video.

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 for inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • 4 different but coordinating pieces of DSP = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Stack the 4 pieces of DSP. With stack in vertical position, cut at 2 3/4". Turn stack of wide strips to horizontal position, and cut at 3". Turn stack of narrow strips to horizontal position, and cut at 2".
  • Shuffle DSP stacks as shown in video

I sure hope that during this busy holiday season you are finding time to slow down, step back, and just enjoy the moments with the people around you. You may have noticed, I haven't posted in several days. That's because I felt the need to slow down and enjoy this special time of year with my family. I wish you peace and joy and a break from the hustle and bustle on this day.

Happy Stamping Always!
