Stamping Tips Feed

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! Designer Series Paper and incorporating it in the card layout, you can create lots of different cards with that 1 card layout. 

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.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score & fold at 5 b1/2" on long side
  • White or Vanilla card stock for inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Designer Series Paper = Cut 1 piece 1 3/4" x 5 1/4" for center strip
  • Coordinating DSP = Cut 2 pieces 1" x 5 1/4" for left and right strips.

Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

I love pairing these two sentiments from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set on the outside and inside of my cards. Perfect sentiment for so many people I know.

Another stunning card made with this simple layout and the Blackberry Beauty Suite! Who would you send this one too??? Definitely someone is need of our support?

For the next two cards, I changed the orientation of the card layout from vertical to horizontal making this simple layout even more versatile.
Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe (1)"I'm Here For You" is a sentiment you can send to people for so many different reasons. Everyone wants to feel love and support from friends and family.

ICS November Blog Hop - Christmas is Coming!

Welcome to the November Inspire Create Share Christmas is Coming Blog Hop. All of the projects were created to inspire your Christmas card making and crafting.

6a01b8d1640c2c970c026bdee744bc200c-500wi

For this blog hop post, I wanted to do something very different by using an often overlooked product - Paper Lattices. I've used this product in a couple of different ways so far. The first was as a back drop for cards featuring the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite. Recently I created a fall thank you card by weaving strips of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive card stock through a Paper Lattice making the Paper Lattice the focal point of the card.

For this post, I created a card by weaving 2 pieces of Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2" Ribbon through the Paper Lattice - one horizontally and one vertically. I then added a bow of the same ribbon and a small stamped "gift tag" for a Christmas "present" card. I love the way this turned out. It's pretty. It's elegant. It uses my all time favorite red - Cherry Cobbler. The ribbon weaving was easy as the Paper Lattices are more sturdy than you'd think. And this card is quick to make.

I later got to thinking that this would be a fun card to give a gift card. Simply add a card stock or DSP pocket to the inside. And if I can make a Christmas present card, why not make birthday present card too. The possibilities are endless.

TIP: Use a small dot of Multipurpose Glue on each little solid diamond shape on the back of the Paper Lattice to adhere it to your card front.

Easiest One Sheet Wonder Ever

Everybody needs to know what I consider the EASIEST One Sheet Wonder EVER!!! It's a simple 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder that makes 3 cards and can be used with just about any size stamped sentiments or images. You are going to LOVE it, so watch my video demonstration, then give it a try. The cards I demonstrate feature the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Sets (one of my favorites for birthday cards) and Pacific Point DSP from the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Cut 6" x 6" DSP at 2".
  • Cut 1/2" off the 2" x 6" strip.
  • Turn the 4" x 6" piece to the horizontal/landscape position. Cut in half at 3" to make two 3" x 4" pieces. 
  • Cut Basic White card stock 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" to layer DSP strip on.
  • Cut 2 pieces of Basic White card stock 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" to layer the other two DSP pieces on.
  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4".

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.

Get Your FRI- YAY GIFT

Happy Friday! It's Halloween Weekend! Trick or Treat in my neighborhood was last night. For the third year in a row, it was rainy but not nearly as cold as the last two years. We don't get many trick-or-treaters here, but it's still fun to see who comes out, watch the little ones having fun, and chat with the parents. Neighbors on both sides of me sat out together along with my Emily who is going back to Cincinnati today. She's been here the last few minutes doing a Physical Therapy Clinical with OSU. I'll miss her, but she's doing great things, enjoying her chosen profession, and looking forward to graduating with her DPT in April. As next door neighbors, we said sitting on one of our porches for trick or treat is now a tradition. I love it. How fortunate I am to be blessed with such nice neighbors on each side of me.

PS...My favorite part of the night was seeing a little green gecko who walked up each driveway saying, "I gecko". And I love seeing kids who were here last year and have grown taller!

I'll be doing some Stampin' Up! work this weekend, having an early lunch with friends Rosie and Mark Saturday as they will be in Columbus, and then, of course, watching the OSU vs Penn State Saturday evening. Andrea and Jon will be joining me. It's sure to get a little loud here as we cheer on our Buckeyes.

No matter what you have planned for your weekend, I hope you're weekend is filled with fun, laughter, family, and friends and a bit of rest and relaxation too. And if you're up for a little crafting, here's a FREE PROJECT SHEET to inspire you!

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

Gingerbread & Peppermint Card & Gift Bag

I'm so excited to share today's card and gift bag project with you. I absolutely love it. I created this festive card with products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. Talk about FUN. This suite has it! Traditional bright red and green patterns and a traditional theme of yummy holiday treats - gingerbread and peppermints. Be sure to download the project sheet using the link below for today's Free Friday Download.

As an alternate to mailing this card, you can give it the additional purpose of decorating a gift bag. Card & Gift Bag together, no lost cards or tiny tag. To do this cut a 1 1/2" strip of coordinating color card stock the width of your gift bag. Use a strong adhesive (like Stampin' Seal+ or Tear & Tape) on each end of the strip only to adhere it to the bag. Slip the card over the strip and there you go!
