Encircled in Warmth & Friendship

In this video demonstration, you'll see the many different and detailed shapes made with the Encircled in Beauty Dies. These dies come in several sizes and are fun to mix and match. And, trust me when I say they cut beautifully. The picture below shows all the different shapes you can die cut with the Encircled in Beauty Dies.

Cutting Dimensions:

Evening Evergreen card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4" on long side. Designer Series Paper is 5" x 3 3/4". Crushed Curry layer is 5 1/8" x 3 7/8". Crushed Curry circle was made with the "wreath" die from Encircled in Beauty Dies.

 

My cards below feature the Encircled in Warmth Stamp Set and Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper with the Encircled in Beauty Dies. I just love my Christmas wreaths!

To make the berries on this card appear more realistic, I put drops of Fine Tip Glue on them. This gives the berries a raised, glossy look. TIP: This takes a good bit of drying time. Do it as the very last step in making  your card, then lay flat to dry.

A strip of coordinating Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper add a nice touch to the inside of this card.

I used Pearl Basic Jewels colored with Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin' Blends for the berries on the card below.

Make It with Mary Monday, April 27, 2020

I love Make It with Mary Mondays on my Stampin' Peace VIP Group. Monday morning, I gave viewers the following dimensions to use in cutting card stock and Designer Series Paper. Then we all met for a Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group. I showed a card I created and then showed them how to using the same card sketch. Then I let viewers suggest what Stampin' Up! products I would use for the third card I would make using the same card sketch. Take a look at this video replay, then consider joining me for Make It with Mary Monday on my Stampin' Peace VIP Group on Facebook every Monday at 11am. 

This is the card sketch I used as inspiration for my April 27th Make It with Mary Knabe Monday Facebook Live.

Watercolor Drip Technique

The Watercolor Drip Technique is so fun and easy to do and gives fun results for truly unique cards and paper crafts. The results of this technique remind me of tie-dye. Watch my demonstration of this technique in my Facebook Live Video Replay and see some wonderful samples of cards I made with the Watercolor Drip Technique. The cards you'll see use 2 great color combinations - Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick, & Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay, Blueberry Bushel, and Coastal Cabana. 

Here are a couple cards I made using the Watercolor Drip Method shown in my video above using the bright & cheery color combination of Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick, and Daffodil Delight.

Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

 

This card makes me dream of beautiful sunsets in Maui in July when I go on a Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip I earned along with about 400 Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the world.In the Tropics Dies by Stampin' Up!

 

I used the colors Bermuda Bay, Blueberry Bushel, and Coastal Cabana for a calming color combination in the following 4 cards. I love that every watercolor is different using the Watercolor Drip Technique for truly one-of-a-kind cards.

First Frost Fun Fold Card...say that 3 times fast!

Frost is part of my morning views here in the midwest this time of year. Stampin' Up! has done a fabulous job capturing such scenes in its Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, and there is so much to love about this paper and all the products in the Feels Like Frost Suite. One side of each 6" x 6" sheet of Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP is a photo-realistic image of the simple beauty of nature touched by frost. The opposite side is a simple pattern in Metallic Silver and Whisper White. Both sides of all sheets bring so many creative ideas to mind. I can't wait to put more of them to work for me. 

In the meantime, I'd like to show you my take on the Feels Like Frost Scenery Cards inspired by my SU! demonstrator friend, Rachel Tessman. The cards I demonstrate in my video make the most of the photo realistic scenes. In fact, these fun fold cards use all but a 3/4" of each 6" x 6" piece of this specialty DSP. I hope you enjoy my creative sharing in my video below which I shared in a past Facebook Live.

Noble Peacock Rhinestones perfectly placed using the Take Your Pick Tool are a great way to embellish these cards.

Here I'm showing you an example of what I like to call a KISS card - Keep It Simple Stamping. It features the Reverse Words stamp set I got free with a Sale-A-Bration order. Many of my customers (also known as my Stampin' Peace VIP's) recently chose this cheery Bermuda Bay as their favorite color in the Stampin' Up! Brights Collection. I think the shiny Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim also adds to the fun of this card. I'm sending this card to someone who is embarking on a new venture in her life! I can think of many other uses for this card too. Please share what occasions you would use this card for.
