Simple Stamping with Painted Poppies

It's time for some KISS & SIP, also know as Keep It Simple, Stampers, with Stamps, Ink, and Paper. I made 4 cards with just that - stamps, ink, and paper. It's where we all started, right? Simple stamping is great for beginners, those with limited supplies (no, we don't need it all to make beautiful cards), and those who just love a clean, simple style of cards.

I used the very same products and layout for each of the 4 cards below. 

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for all cards are the same

  • Basic Black card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Poppy Parade layer = 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • Basic Black layer = 4 3/8" x 3 1/8"
  • Old Olive layer = 4 1/4" x 3"
  • Basic White layer = 4" x 2 3/4"

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets - Mary Knabe (3)These cards with bunches of poppies combine coloring the poppies with Stampin' Blends in Poppy Parade and the stamping and stamping off (stamping without re-inking) of the splatter for leaves with an Old Olive ink pad. Change up the sentiment and the orientation of the card and you have 2 different but highly similar cards to send.

The card below requires no coloring of the poppy and leaves at all, just stamping with stamps in the Painted Poppies set.

I want to point out that each of the different sentiments is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. This is one of my go-to sets for sentiments that I would highly recommend for everyone. There's a good variety of greetings in pretty fonts.

 

Did you know that poppies are a symbol for US veterans? You could turn these into Thank You cards to honor our US veterans.

6" x 6" OSW with Happy Forest Friends DSP

I've got a wonderful 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder and 4 great cards to show you in this post. I cut a 6" x 6" piece of DSP from a 12" x 12" sheet in the Happy Forest Friends DSP pack. You'll see that this particular DSP is very versatile and works well for so many occasions. Each of the 4 cards made with this One Sheet Wonder is different and each has been embellished differently. I hope you love this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder and my Happy Forest Friends cards as much as I do. I also hope that you will make a set of cards of your own using this fabulous One Sheet Wonder. To make even more cards, consider cutting an entire 12" x 12" sheet of DSP into four 6" squares and then following cutting instructions for this One Sheet Wonder. You'll end up with 16 cards total. You make the 4 different card designs or pick your favorites and cut accordingly. Either way, you'll have a nice stash of cards when you're finished.

Cut 6" x 6" DSP as follows:

  • Cut in half both directions to get four 3" squares.
  • Leave 1 square uncut.
  • Cut 2nd square at 1" intervals for three 1" x 3" strips.
  • Cut 3rd square in half in both directions to get four 1 1/2" squares
  • Cut 4th square in half diagonally.

Artisan Additions Dies

Today, I want to introduce you to a brand new product - the Artisan Additions Dies. These dies are unique in that they do not match up to any particular stamp set. They are intended to add an extra element of creative and artistic expression to the cards and other paper crafts we make. The Artisan Additions Dies used with our other stamp sets and products open us up to limitless creative possibilities.

I hope you enjoy seeing the various ways I used the Artisan Additions Dies to create some amazing cards in this video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live. 

 

I love that I could create 3 very different cards using the very same layout and same die on each of them.

Sun Prints in Gray Granite

Have you seen the gorgeous new Sun Prints Suite in the Annual Catalog? If not, be sure to check it out on pages 90 - 91. It's got an amazing stamp set & dies bundle, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and a fun Fern Embossing Folder. With a little creativity and imagination and inspiration, the possibilities are endless.

In this video replay of my May 20th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make 2 gorgeous cards with some of the Gray Granite prints in the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack. You'll see how to die cut a shape and then use both the positive and negative pieces to make 2 cards. You know me, if I can make 1 card, I might as well make 2. Right? A great way to build up a nice stash of cards to have on hand.

 

Stampin' Up! Sun Prints Suite - Mary Knabe For these 2 cards, I die cut the large rectangular label shape from the Painted Labels Dies from a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" DSP. I used the negative or "frame" piece for one card and the positive or "label" piece for the second card. The Vellum and Rustic Metallic Dots greatly enhance these simple but elegant cards.

Sending Sunshine & Good Feelings

Hmmmm, what can you do to have a little fun and spread joy and good feeling to others? Make and send a handmade card, of course! I created this cheerful, sunny card with the new Good Feelings Stamp Set from the 2022 - 2023 Annual Catalog and the Tulip Fields Stamp Set from the 2022 January - June Mini Catalog. As you'll see in my Facebook Live video replay below, the Stamparatus, our perfect stamp placement tool, plays an integral part in creating this card.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic Black card stock = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Basic White scrap for die cutting smallest circle from Layering Circles Dies = approximately 3" x 3"

Techniques with Simply Scored Scoring Tool

You know how I love to find alternate uses for my many Stampin' Up! products. Today, I'm sharing with you ways to use your Simply Scored Scoring Tool for techniques other than simply scoring card bases. In this Facebook Live video replay, I'll demonstrate a few different ways to create decorative scoring and give you a few tips to help do that. 

 

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & Simply Scored Scoring Tool - Mary Knabe

Frame your entire card front or just a couple of corners with decorative score lines made with your Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

FYI...Please note that the decorative scoring techniques can also be done using the Paper Trimmer with the attached Scoring Blade. I find it, however, that the Simply Scored Scoring Tool is a great investment for many people. It's great for quickly scoring card stock for large amounts of card bases. I find it a bit easier to do the decorative scoring techniques as well. Perhaps, try these techniques using both the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade and see what you prefer.
