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"

Stampin' Up! Good Feelings & Tulip Fields Stamp Sets - Mary KnabeThis card is sure to bring sunshine and smiles to the person receiving it.

As seen in my video, the Stamparatus is essential for getting a good clean look to the entire stamped sentiment.

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.

Fabulous Fun Fold Card & Feeling Loved, Valued, Appreciated by SU!

I'm excited to share with you today, the many wonderful gifts I received from Stampin' Up! for being a 2022 Incentive Trip Achiever. Earning an incentive trip is a pretty big deal as less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide earned this reward. The gifts are amazing as you will see in the second half of this post, but first I need to share a truly FUN and EASY Fun Fold Card inspired by a card created by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts for a recent card swap. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one and share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy this video demonstration and will plan to make your own version of this Fun Fold Card and perhaps even share it on my Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Page.

I received this card from SU! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts in a recent card swap and used it as the inspiration for my May 6th Facebook Live and today's blog post.

This week, Emily and I were supposed to be on the 2022 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip I earned. It was to be a Western Caribbean Cruise. SU!, however, made the decision to cancel it last fall due to Covid. While I was sad to not be able to take Emily on this trip and to not gather with the other SU! 2022 Incentive Trip Achievers, I still owe a big THANK YOU to Stampin' UP! for the wonderful gifts they sent. Just another way Stampin' Up! has made me feel loved, valued, and appreciated for the work I do. (Less than 1% of SU! Demonstrators worldwide earned the 2022 incentive trip. It takes a lot of hard work, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to earn such a reward.) 

Many customers, team members, and followers have asked me what the gifts were. So here's a look at them now.

Embossing Folder Techniques

I sure am excited about this post. I had SOOOOOO much fun demonstrating lots of Embossing Folder Techniques in a recent Facebook Live. You are going to love all the different ways of using embossing folders adding more value to your embossing folders. Embossing folders are a small thing that can make a BIG impact on our cards and paper crafts. The cards and techniques I show in this video feature Stampin' Up!'s brand new Fern 3D Embossing Folder. Definitely a new favorite embossing folder for me. I hope you find this video helpful and inspiring and fun too. I'd love to see how you use some of these easy and fun embossing folder techniques.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for embossing = 4 3/4" x 3 1/2
  • Card stock layers for So Saffron and Evening Evergreen cards = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • 2 rectangle corner layers for Soft Succulent cards = 3" x 4 1/4" or size of your choice.
  • Metallic Gold strips = 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

The 2 cards below show the difference between the "embossed" and "debossed" sides of the card stock.
Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder - Mary Knabe (5)

For the 2 cards below I applied Soft Succulent Ink to one side of the embossing folder with a Blending Brush, embossed the white card stock, then cleaned the embossing folder and then repeated the process inking the other side of the embossing folder before embossing the white card stock.Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

For the following 2 cards, I embossed the white card stock pieces, then applied ink. I used a Blending Brush to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the left and used a Stampin' Sponge to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the right. Two very different looks, a softer look versus a bolder look.

Count On Me Dutch Door Cards

Oh, gosh, I've been a bit under the weather since last week and have been nursing myself back to health. I haven't had much of a voice in the last few days. One plus to living alone is it's easy to not talk and rest your voice.

Anyway, I have a fun card layout to show you. In this video demonstration, I show you how to make a Dutch Door Fun Fold Card. You won't believe how easy it is with great results. Featured products are the Count On Me Stamp Set and Abstract Beauty Designer Series Paper. So have a look then start making some Dutch Door Cards of your own. Be sure to share them and then spread some happiness by mailing them.

 

Cutting Dimensions for Dutch Door Fun Fold Cards:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side.
  • For card stock layer, turn card base to vertical position, and cut at 2 3/4" down to score line.
  • DSP layer = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock layer = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

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.

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.

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.

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.
