Pretty Cards made with Pretty Pop-Ups Dies

Hello Stampin' Peace Friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and fun Labor Day Weekend here in the USA. Emily came for the weekend which is always nice. She and her dad and I watched the UC vs. Arkansa game in the afternoon and the OSU vs. Notre Dame game here on Saturday evening. We missed Andrea & Jon as they were in WV celebrating their niece Charlie's 2nd birthday. (She was their flower girl in their wedding in June.) I prepared a game day spread including Buffalo Chicken Dip that I made for the first time. It was a big hit! Emily and I also did a little shopping at Costco and the mall, and now she is off playing golf with her dad while I get a little work in.

Today, I want to introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Pop-Ups Dies. O. M. G. You are going to LOVE them. They are truly one-of-a-kind and make such pretty cards. I hope you'll enjoy this Video Replay of my August 22nd Facebook Live. I think you will!

Hippest Hippos in town!

When I first saw the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating Hippo Dies in the July - August Sale-A-Bration  Brochure, I just knew I had to have them. What I didn't know, though, was just how much fun I would have with them. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I'll show you how to color the hippos and then make a card that is "cuteness overload". ***Please note that this video isn't quite up to my usual. Facebook Live was giving me fits and not letting see my usual screen with the buttons to manage the FB Live. (Facebook has been making LOTS of updates and changes that I was still trying to learn and navigate.) So...you'll see things a bit backwards...like me being left-handed which I'm not. ;)  But, with a little patience and understanding from my viewers, I powered through, and it ended up not being so bad. AND I think I have the new FB changes figured out for my next Facebook Live.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side
  • Basic White card stock = 8 1/8" x 3 1/8" (cut 2)
  • DSP = 8" x 3"
  • DSP or card stock for grass = 3" x 1", tear along one long side

He's The Man!

I love One Sheet Wonders - especially 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonders! They're fun. They're fast. They're manageable without being overwhelming like some of the larger OSWs can be. I shared the following 6" x 6" DOUBLE One Sheet Wonder a while back featuring the He's The Man DSP, but wanted to show it to you again.  Why??? Because I used it again with the same DSP but some alternate card layouts. If you missed my May 3rd blog post with the video demonstration (or just want a refresher), can see it below. But then KEEP SCROLLING because I have more cards to show you (some with alternate card layouts) using the same 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder.

6_ x 6_ One Sheet Wonder - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for card stock for 4 cards:

  • Card bases (cut 4) = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half
  • Basic White inside card (cut 4) = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Card stock layer (cut 4) = 3" x 3 1/4"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 1 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • Card stock layer (cut 2) = 3 1/2" x 2"

Stampin' Up! He's The Man DSP - Mary Knabe

I love the different themes included in the He's The Man Suite - BBQs, classic cars, camping, and even tools for the handyman.

The 2 sheets of dies cuts included in the He's The Man DSP make creating cards SUPER EASY. Great cards with no stamping made quickly. AND it's a great introduction to card making for first timers.

I can't seem to get enough of the Rustic Metallic Dot Embellishments. They're not only great for these masculine cards, but have been used on a wide variety of cards I've made for lots of different people and occasions.

Artisan Additions Dies Take 2

In my last post, you saw me demonstrate using 2 of the 3 dies in the Artisan Additions Dies collection. Now, I'll show you 3 very different cards made with the 3rd die in that set. I also feature products from the Awash In Beauty Suite and Go To Greetings Stamp Set. Please watch the entire video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live to see me demonstrate how to make all three of the cards below as well as a unique way of using the new Decorative Circle Punch. This one is a bit longer than most of my videos, but it's packed full of stampin' goodness. 

I recently demonstrated the Off-Center Z-Fold card with the Hey Sports Fan Suite. Here it is again with the Artisan Additions Dies and Awash in Beauty Suite. This may just be my favorite new fun fold.Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

The Off-Center Z-Fold card is great for showing off your favorite Designer Series Papers.

  • Score card base at 3 1/2" and 6 3/4" on long side.
