Halloween Sliders just in time for Trick-or-Treat

Monday was such a fun day. During my Facebook Live I demonstrated making my Halloween Sliders with 2 different kinds of treats. Then I spent some time making several more of each Late in the day, my daughter Emily and I took the Halloween Sliders to my nieces and their roommates at The Ohio State University. Avery is a freshman studying business and living in the same dorm where her parents met. Her sister Alison is a senior in nursing and living off campus. It was fun to see these girls, hug them, and see where they're living and enjoying their college days. How fun it was for Emily and I, both OSU alumni, to spend a little time on campus. And just to note...big kids like Halloween treats too.

So if you're for still looking for something to make and give for trick-or-treat, take a look at the video below for a demonstration of making these "sliders" with candy bars and single serving cookies. These sliders can easily be adapted for any holiday or occasion. The sliders are so simple to make & use minimal supplies allowing you to whip up a batch in no time! Just by changing up the size of your paper, you can make sliders for microwave popcorn packets and so many other candy bars and treats. What's your favorite and what holiday or occasion would you make these treat sliders for?

 

Hershey Bar Sliders, so fun to make and give!

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope you'll make some fun "sliders" for Halloween or perhaps another holiday or event. I'd love to know what treat you'll use to make these fun favors!

 

Happy Halloween and Happy Stamping!

4 STUNNING Blackberry Beauty Cards

I don't know about you, but I love to make batches of cards so that I always have a stash at my ready. An easy card layout can help you do that. And by mixing and matching Stampin' Up!

In the following Facebook Live video replay, you'll see me demonstrate making 4 different cards using the same easy card layout and same Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper. You'll also pick up some tips and making your envelopes stunning too!

The card below I pulled from my stash and CASE'd it make 4 beautiful cards with products from the Blackberry Beauty Suite.

From Christmas Bells to Wedding Bells

I LOVE when I discover ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in unexpected ways. I especially love discovering ways to use my holiday products year round, not just for the holiday season. In this video, you'll see that I use the Christmas Bells in the Gingerbread Dies collection to make stunning cards for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, and bridal showers. This idea was definitely not something I thought of when I purchased the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, but I'm so glad it came to me later.


Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Which is your favorite wedding card, the Basic White or Very Vanilla? Mine is the white one. My daughter Andrea is getting married in June and is wearing white, and the Soft Succulent color of the ribbon on this card is very similar to the color of her bridesmaids' dresses. I think this will be a wonderful wedding or bridal shower card to use for this special event in our family.Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Delivering Birthday Cheer

Today is a BIG day. Today is my daughter Andrea's 30th birthday which means I have been a mom for 3 whole decades. Honestly, it's been the best "job" I've ever had and title that I am most proud of. I didn't always get the mothering right, but all of it was done with great love. And when I see my children as adults, I couldn't be more proud of them and the raising of children that their dad and I did. 

So since today is a special birthday for our family, I decided my Delivering Cheer card & gift bag would used for today's blog post. I love everything about this hanging card & gift bag and am excited for you to view the demonstration below. What I want you to know up front is that this birthday card was made with the Delivering Cheer holiday stamp set from our Mini Catalog. I love when I can find ways to showcase our holiday stamp sets beyond the holiday season. Doing so, we make our products more versatile and get more bang for our buck. Purchasing stamping and paper crafting supplies can get pricey so we need to find as many uses for our products as we can. (I sure am glad I have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator discount and save on all my purchases. Ask me how you can too.)

I think you'll enjoy not only seeing me create a birthday card from a holiday stamp set, but also how I use that same card to decorate a plain gift bag. It's 2 projects in 1.

 

I love the many different colors of Stampin' Blends we sell so I can so I can mix and match colors for just the right color palette for my project. I love all the bright colors used for this birthday card.

If you aren't currently working with a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to earn your business and would be happy to send you a complimentary catalog.


Thanks for stopping by and viewing today's post. I hope you leave feeling inspired or having learned something new.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

 

 

 


Torn Paper Technique!

It's always fun learning new techniques. I was inspired to demonstrate the Torn Paper Technique with you all after seeing my friend Marti Blair do it. I love it. It's easy and fun and really packs a punch to a simple card. I chose fall colors to use with the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set for this video tutorial. I hope you'll give this technique a try and share what you make using it.
