Be My Valentine Pop Up Card

Pop-Up Cards. We all love them, but how do you make them you might ask. Today's post shows you how quickly and easily you can make your own pop-up cards. It's fun and easy to do when you follow along with my video demonstration. I hope you enjoy watching this Video Replay of my February 5th Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group and find it helpful in creating your own Pop-Up Cards! Trust me when I say the people who receive your pop-up cards will love them and be filled with delight and awe.

Black, White, and Real Red - a classic color combination for Valentine's Day and Love! The True Love Designer Series Paper is all black & white with floral prints on one side and geometric prints on the other side. Pair it with Real Red for classic Valentine cards as I did on these Pop-Up cards I made for my daughters or add a punch of your favorite Stampin' Up! color!

A Pop-Up card can be made simply as I demonstrated in my video above, but it sure says "WOW" to the recipient of your pop-up card.

The stitches on the banner, the scallops on the black heart, and a single rhinestone adds lots of pretty detail to the inside of this pop-up card.

I made the treat boxes below for my daughters to coordinate with their pop-up cards above. I used True Love Designer Series Paper with the Love You Always Treat Boxes and filled with chocolates and a Graeters Ice Cream git card.

Pansy Patch Bay Window Card

I've discovered a new-to-me fun fold card - the Bay Window Card. It looks a bit intimidating but with the right measurements and my guidance I have no doubt that you can and will enjoy making some Bay Window Cards yourself. And, of course, everybody who receives one of these will be amazed at your creativity. And that is what it's all about, isn't it? Putting smiles on the faces of others!

Congratulations, Emily!

Two weeks ago, our family celebrated our daughter & sister Emily. Emily and her Doctor of Physical Therapy classmates had their pinning ceremony (postponed from last year due to covid). While only students and staff could be at the in-person event, the rest of us watched virtually. What an exciting time for this class of 2022. Just 3 days later they all completed their 2nd year of DPT school. Now, they enter their 3rd and final year by doing 3 rounds of clinicals. We are so proud of Emily for how hard she has worked and all that she has accomplished and for the all-around good person that she is. 

This is the card I made for Emily to mark this special milestone. It features the beautiful new Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper along with a sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set. You can see the full Hand-Penned Suite Collection on pages 104-105 in our new Annual Catalog.

 

Be sure to download the Free Project Sheet so you can make this card too.

Make My Popcorn Purse!

My family has always enjoyed movies whether it be movie night at home or a trip to the theatre (boy, do I miss that). And popcorn just makes the movie experience better! It seemed appropriate that I have a fun Oscar Night treat so why not share my "popcorn purse". Take a look at my fancy Oscar Night clutch made from Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper and Basic Black Card Stock. It looks so elegant on the outside, but on the inside it's a popcorn party!

A couple of tiny refrigerator magnets were used on this, but velcro or double stick tape is another option for this party favor.

I made this video as a result of so many requests by people who saw this post originally. Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope you like today's project. Change up the paper and card stock to make popcorn purses for favors at a little girl's party. Make it pretty for Mother's and enclose a movie night coupon along with the popcorn for a fun Mother's Day Gift. Enclose a movie or theatre gift card also inside the popcorn purse and give it as a Birthday gift for your favorite movie lover. 

 


Happy Earth Day with Beauty of the Earth Suite

Happy Earth Day!Earth-tree-900x620

 

I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a project featuring a brand new suite launching with our new Annual Catalog on May 4th - Beauty of the Earth - today in celebration of Earth Day.  The Beauty of the Earth Suite includes the colorful Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set and coordinating Beautiful Trees Dies, Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, Bark 3D Embossing Folders, and colorful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. 

Beauty of the Earth Suite by Stampin' Up!

For today's post I made 8 slimline cards quickly and easily and with just 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. You can too! Simply follow my cutting dimensions and assembly instructions below. Easy peasy, I guarantee it!

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card bases = Cut 8 measuring 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side, fold in half. (I cut 4 Night of Navy & 4 Merry Merlot.)
  • Basic White layer = Cut 16 measuring 3 1/4" x 8 1/4". (You'll use 2 per card - 1 on front & 1 inside.)
  • Card stock layer on front = Cut 8 measuring 3 1/8" x 8 1/8". (I cut 4 Night of Navy & 4 Merry Merlot from left over card stock that I had when I cut the card bases from my 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of card stock.)
  • Designer Series Paper = Use the Beauty of the Earth DSP with watercolor tree prints at the top and bottom of the paper with white space in the middle. Cut it at 6" (in half) through the white space. Then cut each of the two 6" x 12" pieces into 4 pieces measuring 3" x 6". 
  • Wood Grain DSP (also from Beauty of the Earth DSP) = Cut 4 pieces measuring 2" x 3".

  6. Adhere Basic White card stock to inside of card.
  7. Die cut 2 Night of Navy birds and adhere to card front as shown using Glue Dot.
