Create Fast & Fabulous Cards

Today's focus is on creating a set of cards quickly and easily when you needs lots or just want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand when needed. And we always need birthday cards. Everyone we know has a birthday, right? In the following video, I demonstrate 2 layouts, same but sized differently, to help you make a stack of cards in a jiffy. The first layout allows you to make 9 cards with 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. The second layout allows you to make 12 cards with 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. The "Fast & Fabulous" card made for this post feature the Go To Greetings Stamp Set and Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper. Watch, learn, then pull out your card stock and Designer Series Paper to prep for your own set of Fast & Fabulous cards.

The 5 cards you see below are the ones I demonstrated in my FB Live which went out to 5 lucky viewers after my June 6th Facebook Live. (I very often give a way the cards I make in my Lives). These are just 5 of the total 21 I made using the 2 layouts shown in my demonstration. After finishing my Live, it took me just about an hour to complete the other 16 cards including adding the white card stock to the inside of each card and embellishing the card fronts. When I say these are Fast & Fabulous Cards, they really are.

Stylish Sketches Simple Stamping

In today's post, I'm sharing one of my favorite new, and often overlooked, new products of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog - the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 precut and scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards, 20 envelopes, plus a sturdy box to store your finished cards or to give them as a gift. All this for just $10.00. It's a great value both in what you get for the price and for the convenience allowing you to get off to a quick start in your card making. I've paired these Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes with the Stylish Sketches Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set to make some quick and easy, yet fabulous, cards. I used the wonderful Watercolor Pencils to color the sketched images of the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set. And did you know the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set can be yours FREE when you place a $50 Stampin' Up! order? Yes, it's true! But don't wait too long. Our Summer Sale-A-Bration promotion ends August 31st and all Sale-A-Bration products are available while supplies last only.

Oh, my. Happy Friday the 13th. Are you superstiscious? Not me. So let's celebrate. It's Friday. The end of another great week of living and loving life.

Love animals? How about wild animals? How about Wild & Sweet animals like this darling panda. This is just one of 3 darling animals in the brand new Wild & Sweet Stamp Set.

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)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.

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 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. 

 

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & Simply Scored Scoring Tool - Mary Knabe

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & Simply Scored Scoring Tool - Mary Knabe

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

The card below features the Decorative Tile Technique.

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.

Flowing Flowers Cards

Happy New Year, Stampin' Peace Friends! 

With the holidays behind us, it's time to start thinking about writing our Thank You Notes. I'm sharing what I'm using as my birthday and Christmas thank you notes. They feature the brand new Flowing Flowers Stamp Set and Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. I love using our Notecards & Envelopes of quick and easy thank you cards or when I need to make several of other kinds of cards. They're very affordable at just $7 for 20 pre-cut and scored note cards and envelopes in either Basic White or Very Vanilla. The folded size is 3 1/2" x 5", and yes, they are mailable.

This Video Replay of my December 27th Facebook Live includes a demonstration of the Simple Stamping I used to make all these cards. Remember, Simple Stamping means we use stamps, ink, and paper only. It's fun and easy but still allows you to make pretty cards. So watch now then do some Simple Stamping cards of your own.

I chose to use Merry Merlot ink on these cards, but so many of our colors look amazing on the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. FYI...you'll want to use some Grid Paper or other scrap paper as you will be stamping off the edge of the note cards.

To add a little more interest to these cards, add a layer of embossed card stock as I did on the cards below. I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, my most used embossing folder. I like the subtle texture it provides.

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.

Matte Black Dots are a perfect embellishment for these black & white cards with a pops of Just Jade color.
