Custom Made Designer Series Paper Envelopes

If you've been following my work for a while, or if you're new to Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, it doesn't take long for you to learn that I love Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. It is often time the first product I reach for when I sit down to design and create. I love that each piece of paper has a different print on each side. I love that the colors in the Designer Series Paper are true Stampin' Up! colors coordinating with all our other color products - ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments. AND so many of our Designer Series Papers also coordinate with other products such as stamp sets, dies, and punches. Stampin' Up! is known for its color coordination and product coordination. That's what I love most about using Stampin' Up! products, Designer Series Papers being one of my favorite products categories. I love them for cards, scrapbook pages, little favors, and so much more.

In the following video, I demonstrate quick and easy cards in 3 sizes each with coordinating envelopes made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. You can whip up these cards and envelopes in record time. The custom made DSP envelopes are so easy, especially after watching my video demonstration and using the templates pictured. Feel free to print the picture of the envelope templates for your future use.

Black & White with a Pop of Color

I love black and white cards. I love them even more with a "pop of color". The True Love Designer Series Paper lends itself to these types of cards so easily. Use the True Love DSP as is but add color with bits of card stock, ribbon, and/or embellishments. I used Just Jade for my pops of color on the following 6 cards. These are so easy to make as they all use the same dimensions - making it easy to make lots of great cards fast to use now or build up your stash for later use. 

Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

I love layering punched shapes to add more interest to cards and make my sentiments stand out.
Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

Matte Black Dots are a perfect embellishment for these black & white cards with a pops of Just Jade color.
Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Basic Black 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 card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • DSP = Cut 4" x 6" then cut 3/4" off one end. Both the 4" x 5 1/4" and 4" x 3/4" pieces will be used on your card front.
  • Just Jade card stock (or color of your choice) = 4" x 1"

Make 6 Hydrangea cards fast!

I love making one of a kind cards, but sometimes I need several cards at once or for a particular occasion. That can take a lot of time. But here's a solution to help you make 6 beautiful cards fast with Designer Series Paper and simple stamping. Enjoy this video replay of a recent Facebook Live. I hope you'll find it helpful and inspiring, so much so that you'll be motivated to make your own 6 cards, quickly and easily.

Card Dimensions: 

  • Highland Heather Card Base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Gorgeous Grape layer = 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • DSP = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White for inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

I made these 6 cards fast with 1 sheet of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper! I love everything about the Hydrangea Hill Suite! It is gorgeous and screams warm days and sunshine too.

Sending Happy Thoughts

There are so many reasons I love card making. I get to use amazing coordinating products in an array of fabulous colors and themes too numerous to name or count. I get to belong to a community of creative people who understand my love for stamping and paper crafting and inspire me to keep on stamping and creating. I get to express myself creatively and add my own personal touch to my correspondences. I get to inspire and teach others to enjoy stamping and paper crafting like I do. Best of all, card making keeps me spreading love, kindness, and happy thoughts in challenging times by sending the hand stamped cards I've made.

I made this beautiful set of cards to let friends and family they are thought of and loved. They feature the Hydrangea Hill Suite and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set - 2 of my favorite new products in the new January - June Mini Catalog. I hope you love these cards as much as I do. If so, you can download the Free Project Sheet I created for you.

Enjoy the Moments

Enjoy the Moments with simple stamping and with fun new ways to color your stamps. In the following video replay from my January 6th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, I'll show you an example of simple stamping with the Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set. Plus, I'll show you 2 ways to add multiple colors to a single stamp to make a big impact on your Corner Bouquet cards. I think you'll enjoy both styles of stamping and give them both a try.

Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set & Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I created the following 2 cards with 2 different techniques for adding multiple ink colors to a single stamp. Be sure to view the video above for technique demonstrations. They're fun and easy to do and make a big impact!

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I colored my rubber stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Melon Mambo, Bumblebee, Highland Heather, Soft Suede, and Shaded Spruce. Then I "huffed" on the stamp to remoisten the inks and stamped on Basic White card stock.
Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!I used Shaded Spruce card stock to back the Basic White card stock for this card.
Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I used a different stamping technique to add multiple ink colors to my Corner Bouquet stamp for this card. This technique used Sponge Daubers and Ink Pads to add the various colors to my rubber stamp. Be sure to "huff" or breathe heavily on the inked stamp to remoisten the inks before stamping on Basic White card stock.

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

For a simple change, I used Bumblebee card stock to back the Basic White card stock on this card.

Quite Curvy Hello Note Card

It's nice to send a pretty card simply to say hello to a friend or loved one who you haven't see in a long time or who you know needs a little pick me up or to know they are thought of. This card is perfect for that person. The card is simple and quick to make. The gold hoop adds a fun element to this wreath card. The sentiment and flowers are from the Quiet Curvy Bundle. And with such bright colors as Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party, whose days wouldn't be made just a bit brighter with this card?

No extra layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper for this simply beautiful card.

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!I prefer to use Whisper White THICK card stock for my white card bases as it is much sturdier and stands up better than our original Whisper White card stock that is intended for layering. The same holds true for Very Vanilla card bases. 

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!
What a nice impact this Gold Hoop Embellishment adds. It makes this simple card a bit fancy!

 

TIPS for making this card: 

  • For adhering the Gold Hoop Embellishments, use a few Mini Glue Dots rolled up or even a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape rolled. You don't need adhesive all the way around the Gold Hoop. Just 3-4 spots with good adhesive will hold your Gold Hoop in place nicely.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Black Momento Ink or in color of your choice.
  • I stamped 2 floral sprigs in Black Momento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party.
  • Die cut both floral sprigs. Then cut one of them into 2 pieces (1 very small piece and 1 longer piece) and tuck and adhere these underneath the Gold Hoop. The other floral sprig I placed over the top of the hoop using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
  • Use a Mini Glue Dot behind the knot of the bow to adhere it to the bottom of the floral wreath.

Simple & Beautiful Brightly Gleaming Cards

My November 9th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live was lots of fun. I used a limited amount of supplies to create quick, easy, and simply elegant Christmas cards with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. I hope you'll watch my Facebook Live Replay and that you will be inspired to do what we in the Stampin' Up! world like to call "Simple Stamping" with our 3 main products - stamps, ink, and paper. These cards are great for beginner stampers or for those who prefer a simple style. They are great for people making their first card or for someone making lots of cards to send family, friends, and colleagues, or to donate to a church group or nursing home. And of course, you can always add layers of card stock, DSP, and specialty papers along with ribbons, trims, and embellishments to turn these simple cards into wow cards. The supplies used may be limited but the creative possibilities are endless. So enjoy this video, then grab some supplies and get started creating simply beautiful cards.

 

Using both side of the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper makes it easy to create multiples of your designs and layouts.

  • DSP Strips for envelopes vary in length and width. Cut them as they appeal to you and adhere securely with Multipurpose Glue.
