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.

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.

Merry Christmas Tin

Have you seen the darling tins in our 2020 Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog? They come in two shapes - rectangle and round - and both are fabulous! They're fun. They're versatile. They can be filled with candies, a decorated cookie, a gift card, cash, coins, personal notes, meaningful quotes, jewelry, and more. Or how about gifting your crafting friends a bolt of Stampin' Up! ribbon, a bunch of gift tags, or an assortment of embellishments. 

Today's post shows one way to decorate a Round Tin quickly and easily with the Wreath Builder Dies and foil paper in red, green, and gold. Whether I use this as a stocking stuffer, gift card holder, or table favor, I have no doubt the recipient will LOVE it. The question is, though, will that person want to share it and pass it on or keep it for oneself to use as a holiday decoration for years to come.

Nothings says Christmas more than red, green, and gold and a holiday wreath. This Round Tin was fun and VERY easy to decorate. I can think of so many ways to use it which makes my heart happy.
Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

I stamped "Merry Christmas" in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with a 2" Circle Punch, then layered it onto a 2 1/4" circle punched from Green Foil Paper.Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

These Round Tins are bigger than you'd think - 3 3/4" in diameter x 1 1/4" high. The window is 3".  These Round Tins are food safe and come in a box of 4 for just $12. What goodies or gifts would you fill these with?

Elegant Christmas Wreath Card

This week, I enjoyed creating with the Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set. The following is a video replay of my November 11th Facebook Live in which a started with an elegant wreath card I made. I then showed my viewers how to create two different cards (both of them fun folds) using the same paper crafting supplies and cutting dimensions. I love how all three cards turned out. One is just as elegant as the next. Very Vanilla, Metallic Gold, and Real Red is one of my favorite color combinations for a very classic style of Christmas card. I hope you enjoy my video demonstration and feel inspired to create with the Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set. 


Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

The same paper crafting supplies and many of the same cutting dimensions were used to make 3 different card layouts. 2 of them are fun fold cards! Be sure to watch my video above to see the differences in these 3 classy and elegant holiday cards.

So many gorgeous details and beautiful textures in this simple yet elegant card.

A simple message of Merry Christmas is very fitting for this simply beautiful card.

Can you spot the difference in this card below from the one above??? The card below is a fun fold card with a different opening. Can you see it now? If not, watch my video demonstration above to see the clever opening.

Happy Christmas Snowman

Make darling Happy Christmas cards with the Snow Wonder Bundle. This traditional snowman brings back wonderful memories of snow days while growing up in Cleveland. As kids, we loved sledding, skating, and making snowmen and snow angels. As an adult, I still get excited to hear of kids having a snow day from school and love seeing them have fun playing in the snow. 

As you can see in these cards below, I basically just made the same cards in different colors. These are pretty traditional colors for the theme of these cards, but feel free to step outside the box and choose a non-traditional color scheme - perhaps, pinks and purples, when creating your own cards.

The first card I made uses Misty Moonlight and Mossy Meadow. My second card uses Pool Party and Garden Green. The snowman was stamped in Gray Granite (You may want to "stamp off" for a lighter shade.) and colored with Stampin' Blends. A little sparkle and shimmer can be added to the "snow" using a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

You're one in a million!

New products are so much fun to play with. The Quite Curvy Bundle, Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, and festive Curvy Celebrations DSP do not disappoint. In fact, I'm going to need a lot more time to create with these fabulous and versatile products. My Facebook Live video replay below gives you some tips for using the Curvy Dies and will show you how to make a beautiful card perfect for telling someone how much they mean to you. 

The cards in today's blog post give you a sneak peek at the Quite Curvy Bundle which will be in our 2021 January - June Mini Catalog. But you don't have to wait that long to order it. The Quite Curvy Bundle is available as a pre-order to EVERYONE beginning November 3rd.  And if you love Quite Curvy Bundle, consider adding the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set & Classic Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to your upcoming order. These coordinating Christmas products will NOT be in the 2021 Jan - June Mini Catalog like the Quite Curvy Bundle. They are exclusive to the Curvy Celebrations Promotion November 3rd - January 4th only.

Such a great card for expressing gratitude, love, congratulations, and even thinking of you and encouragement.

3 Curvy Dies were used on this card. One cut the curvy edge & dots. The second one cut the leaves and embossed the curly lines. The third die used cut out the bird I colored with Stampin' Blends.

I added an extra layer of Mint Macaron card stock between the card base and Whisper White card stock on the inside of the card for a little added interest.

Another Variation of the Slimline Card

Today's blog post contains a video demonstration of a new variation on the Slimline Card. It's called a Double Split Slimline Card. With my video demonstration and directions, I hope you'll feel confident to try it on your own. My cards feature the bright, colorful, festive, and fun Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper with tips on getting the most out of it along with the coordinating dies. Enjoy!

 

Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper & Home Together Dies by Stampin' Up!

These two cards use the same Double Split Slimline Card layout and same Trimming the Town DSP but look so different. I love the versatility of Stampin' Up! products to help me create one of a kind cards even with limited supplies.

This card is so fun and festive and reminds me of my childhood when Dad would "flood" our backyard to make an ice rink for us. Such fun we had! We loved winters in Cleveland. Dad took us to the valley so sled a lot too. And he was a high school teacher so he loved snow days as much as we kids did.

Pretty Poinsettia Shadow Box Cards

I absolutely love Poinsettia of all colors and sizes, perhaps, because I have a December birthday. When I first saw the Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! 2020 Holiday Catalog, I just knew I had to have it. I love the Poinsettia Petal with matching Poinsettia Dies that cut AND emboss the veins in the poinsettia petals. The Designer Series Paper is gorgeous and the Beaded Pearls so elegant. These products are featured in the Facebook Live video replay below in which I demonstrate how to make a Shadow Box Card. Making this Fun Fold Card is actually quite a simple process, and the Shadow Box cards fits nicely in a standard medium envelope as it is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when lying flat.

Here are two very different card both made with the Poinsettia Place Suite. Mixing and matching products makes for endless possibilities in creating pretty poinsettia cards for the holidays.

The Red Velvet poinsettia pairs beautifully with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper used on the front of this Shadow Box. The design of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the inside of this Shadow Box card matches the design on the Plush Poinsettia Paper on the front of the card. So many beautiful details coordinating on this gorgeous card.
Shadow Box Cards with Poinsettia Place Suite by Stampin' Up!


I've changed quite a few elements in the 2nd poinsettia Shadow Box card I made. The card base is made of Old Olive card stock on front and Whisper White for the back/inside layer. I moved the Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the card, changed out the sentiment for a larger one and embellished the card front with Holiday Rhinestones in gold. The poinsettia is made of Red Foil Paper, uses the Beaded Pearl for its center, and has loops of Old Olive Ribbon with a sparkly edge behind it.

The Poinsettia Dies not only cut out poinsettia petals. They also emboss veins in the petals.

Embossing Makes Cards Extraordinary!

Embossing takes your handmade cards to an extraordinary level. Whether you emboss with embossing folders or embossing powders & heat tool, your cards are sure to impress. You can do both of these techniques on all sorts of papers including card stock, vellum, and foil paper. In the video demonstration below, I'll show you "dry" embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder and "heat" embossing with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Tool. Both of these techniques will help you create extraordinary cards.

Just a girl with goals!

Girl-with-goals
Yep, that's me. Just a girl with goals! And right now, I'm just a girl with a last big goal for the current Stampin' Up! year and only 10 days left to reach that goal. 
 
This is a last quarter personal sales goal.  I am about $1100 short of meeting this goal. If I reach my goal, I plan to invest the bonus I will receive into purchasing a new and improved, heavy duty paper cutter. This cutter will allow me to cut several packages of card stock at one time. (My current paper cutter, limits me to 12 sheets at a time.) Spending less time cutting card stock for classes and events will give me more time to plan & design more classes & events, Facebook Lives, & YouTube videos, as well as spend more time training & coaching my team while still growing my own business.
 
I am asking for your help and would appreciate any support you can give. 
 
Any and all orders will receive a surprise SU! gift from me AND for every $50 you order between now and September 30th, you will receive an entry into my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway. That's right I'd like to give away a New Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Wouldn't you love to be the winner of this cool new tool?
 
September Host Code for Online Orders:  QPQPQJVG Please use the monthly host code when placing an online order at www.maryknabe.stampinup.net***Do not use Host Code when ordering $150+ as you will receive Stampin' Rewards. I will still send you my monthly SU! gift and enter you into the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine Giveaway.
