In doing so, I'll show you 3 different cards. All gorgeous! This technique is simple, fun, and gives stunning results! Take a look, then give it a try!

Hybrid Embossing Folders are A*MAZ*ING

Hybrid Embossing Folders are quite new to Stampin' Up! Currently we have 2 available, Bloom in the Annual Catalog and Merriest Frames in the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog. What makes Hybrid Embossing Folders different than all other embossing folders is they come with a set of dies, and one of those dies fits inside the Hybrid Embossing Folder allowing you to cut and emboss in one step! How great is that???

In this September 15, 2021, Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder with its coordinating dies, both part of the Merriest Moments Bundle. You can use the Hybrid Embossing and dies each separately or in combination. The results are beautiful and amazing in each case! Enjoy my video demonstration of my beautiful Merriest Moments cards and how to use the new Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies

 

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle - Mary Knabe

I love the versatility of the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and the different ways it can be used.
Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle - Mary Knabe

Simple and elegant! I love it.

This card shows the result of using the large Merriest Frame die within the Hybrid Embossing Folder. The white card stock on the card below was embossed and cut in one step thanks to the Hybrid Embossing Folder.
Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle - Mary Knabe

A bit fancier with more detail than the 2 previous cards but still quite simple and elegant.
Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle - Mary Knabe

Did you notice the layer of Vellum card stock behind the white layer? I think it adds a lot of interest and elegance to this card. The Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon and Pastel Pearls are wonderful accents for all three of these cards.

Together is the Merriest Place to Be

It's true. Together with loved ones is the merriest place to be during the holidays! I love this sentiment so was excited to put it to use for a recent card swap I participated in. The sentiment is part of the Merriest Moments Stamp Set. I love this stamp set for its traditional images and assortment of sentiments to create beautiful cards. It also has a HYBRID Embossing Folder (dies and embossing folder that work together) providing endless opportunities to create amazing holiday cards.

Peaceful Prints DSP with Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set & Deer Builder Punch by Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe

A strip of Designer Series Paper makes it easy to add a little something extra to the inside of your card.
Peaceful Prints DSP with Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set & Deer Builder Punch by Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe

I love all the details on this card - from the red & black buffalo check to the layers to the black scalloped circle to the rhinestone and Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. All these elements work so well together without them distracting from the 2 focal points, the deer punched from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and the beautifully scripted Merry Christmas sentiment.

Craft Your Own Gift Bags

I love making my own gift bags! I purchase plain white and kraft gift bags of various sizes online (check out Amazon and/or google kraft gift bags). Then I decorate them with Stampin' Up! supplies - from Designer Series Paper and card stock to ribbons and embellishments. The possibilities are endless! I make them for holidays and specific occasions such as birthdays or baby showers. They're perfect for those "just because" gifts too. And nothings better than giving a handmade gift than giving it in  wonderful handmade packaging. I know many of you like me love to gift our hand stamped cards. Why not decorate a gift bag to put them in for an added touch? 

Below I show you in pictures how I made a pretty and festive gift bag for the holidays. The Adorning Designs Decorative Masks made it easy. I chose the snowflake mask, 1 of 4 in the set, sponged our White Craft Ink over it onto my kraft gift bag, heat set it, and added a fun gift tag I made as an embellishment. I love how it turned out. It was quick. It was easy. It was fun! AND, it was inexpensive to make! I'll admit, I am frugal when it comes to packaging gifts. I will not spend $4 on a simple no frills gift bag at the store when I can make something myself. And you know what? People love my handmade bags and want to save them so they can reuse them. That says a lot, doesn't it.

So follow my step-by-step pictures below, then give these Adorning Designs Decorative Masks a try!

After all, isn't it hard to choose just one sheet or pattern from so many beautiful ones in the same pack?

A Fun Twist on my Pocket Card

I love making pocket cards. The one featured in my last post is really fun and easy to make. It starts with a 5 1/4" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper. (If you missed it, click here to view it now.) In today's Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate how to make a Fun Fold Card using the same elements used in my Pocket Card. So take a look at this video. Learn how you can add a couple more scores lines and cuts to that 5 1/4" x 12" piece of DSP to make this new Fun Fold Card. Of course, using the Beauty of the Earth Suite makes creating beautiful cards pretty darn easy too.


Cutting & Scoring Directions:

  • Card Base = 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • DSP = 5 1/4" x 12", score at 4" & 8", flip over and score at 2" & 10"
  • Basic White inside = 5" x 3 3/4"

 

I made this Fun Fold Card using the same Designer Series Paper, sentiment, punch, ribbon, and embellishments as on one of the Pocket Cards from the previous post. A few extra score lines on the DSP can change this combination of supplies from a Pocket Card to a Fun Fold Card.

By changing out the paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP pack and sentiment from Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, it was easy to recreate this Fun Fold Card as a Christmas or Winter Time card. I simply love it. The ribbons and embellishments I chose fit perfectly with the other elements making this card oh so pretty.
