Love For You Dies

The Love For You Bundle coming January 5th is sure to be a favorite of many. At first glance, however, the die set may be a bit overwhelming. In this video, I demonstrate how to use all the words and give you options for mixing and matching them for different looks. After viewing the video, be sure to see the photos below for a template/chart to use with this die set. Print it out and put it with the die set for quick reference in the future.

Holiday Thank You Cards made with Petal Park Bundle

Well, if your life is anything like mine, life is settling down and I'm getting back to my routines after the holiday hoopla. I really enjoyed all the fun and festivities with my family. I need a bunch of holiday thank you cards and wanted them to look festive but was also eager to use some of my new products. I love the cards I came up with using the new Petal Park Bundle with its coordinating stamp set and punch and a festive color combination of Shaded Spruce and Sweet Sorbet. I love the versatility of this bundle as it works for so many occasions and reasons for sending cards. I also love that it is designed for 2-Step Stamping.

Stamping the outline images at full strength, then stamping off (going from ink pad to scrap paper to card stock) for the second layer gives you 2 different shades of the same color and really shows the details well as in the card on the left in the photo above. Stamping both layers with ink at full strength (going from ink pad to card stock) gives you bolder color but more subtle details as in the card on the right in the photo above. Give both methods a try and see which one you like best.

Christmas with Cas follow up

Happy New Year, friends. I thought today would be a good time to update you on Christmas for Cas.
 
Thank you to everyone who have donated to "Christmas for Cas". Andrea informed me this afternoon that over $3000 in toys, games, books, cash, and gift cards were donated to this 8 year old cancer patient she works with and his family. Many cards were sent and lots of prayers said as well. Cas was so excited and his family so very grateful.
 
Not only have so many people contributed to making this a joyous Christmas for Cas and his family, but they've also given this family some much needed help for things like gas and groceries. Cas' family lives in WV. In addition, to the back and forth and taking care of a teenage son at home, the family is in the process of making their house accessible for Cas' homecoming in early 2023 (hopefully).
 
In addition to many members of my Stampin' Peace community and my donation of 20% of my Stampin' Up! sales December 1-15, those donating include Andrea and Jon's families, friends, and co-workers, and colleagues of Cas' mom.
 
Andrea and I were talking last week about how when so many people come together each doing what they can, big things can be accomplished. No donation is ever too big or too small when it comes to giving from the heart to help others. Andrea is in awe of the kindness and generosity she has seen from so many people. She wants you to know how much your kindness and generosity is appreciated. Thank you!
 
Please continue to keep Cas and his family in your prayers as they still have a very long road ahead of them. Andrea received a text from Cas' mom on Christmas Eve, again thanking her and included pictures of Cas "ringing the bell" after completing his last cancer treatment. Now, the long road of rehab comes. The hope is that with PT and OT Cas will get stronger and recover enough function that he can go home in the next few months. 
 
As you pray for Cas and his family, I ask that we also pray for others who are also fighting cancer and other diseases including mental health.

Gifts for the whole family who got to be with Cas for Christmas plus gift cards to help the family. 
IMG_9464.HEIC
Andrea got to play Santa's helper! Andrea and her husband even baked cookies and put together icing, sprinkles, and more for Cas and his family to enjoy a holiday activity of decorating and eating Christmas cookies.
IMG_9464.HEIC
For privacy reasons, we blocked out most of Cas' face is this photo his mother took of him with Andrea, but I wanted you to see this little guy's smile. Andrea said she was so proud and happy as Cas read EVERY card he received mostly by himself.
 
Thank you for choosing to make a positive different in the lives of others, whether it be in helping Cas' family and/or any other act of kindness and giving you engage in.
 
Happy New Year. May you and yours be happy, healthy, and at peace in 2023.

2-Step Stamping with Petal Park Stamp Set

It's so easy to create beautiful cards with the Petal Park Bundle and 2-Step Stamping Technique. In this replay of a recent Facebook Live, I demonstrate 2-Step Stamping and offer some tips for lining up your stamps making this technique easy and fun. I used an anniversary sentiment on my cards, however, these cards would be great for so many different occasions and reason for sending cards. Just swap out the sentiment to suit your need.


Cutting Dimensions for 1st Card:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White (cut 2) = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Cutting Dimensions for 2nd Card:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White (cut 2) = 5 1/4" x 4"

Stampin' Up! Petal Park Bundle - Mary Knabe

Stamping both layers with ink at full strength (going from ink pad to card stock) gives you bolder color but more subtle details as in the card above.

Stamping the outline images at full strength, then stamping off (going from ink pad to scrap paper to card stock) for the second layer gives you 2 different shades of the same color and really show the detail well as in the cards below. Give both methods a try and see what your preference.

Another option for 2-Step Stamping is to use 2 different but coordinating colors, one darker and one lighter, for example Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride for the flowers.  Stampin' Up! Petal Park Bundle - Mary Knabe

Fragrant Flowers Bundle with Favored Flowers DSP

One of the greatest benefits of creating with Stampin' Up! products can be summed up in one word - COORDINATION - coordination of colors across inks, card stock, Designer Series Paper, ribbons, and embellishments and coordination of products such as stamp sets, punches, dies, and DSP. This one characteristic of coordination makes creating cards, scrapbook pages, treats, and home decor with Stampin' Up! products easy, fun, and stress free. I LOVE LOVE LOVE using Designer Series Paper, so often use that to choose a color combination. Then I look to a suite, bundle, or stamp set to use with the DSP. And before I know it, I'm creating beautiful cards and more.

In this replay of my December 22nd Facebook Live, you'll see how I used several new coordinating products featured in the 2023 Jan - April Mini Catalog and Jan - Feb Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Enjoy my demonstration of 3 cards I made with the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set and Dies and the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.

Dollar Store Makeover

I purchased 3 of these wood ornament wall decorations at the Dollar Tree store. Then decorated them with Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and ribbon for an easy door decoration. Use DSP in the colors and holiday themes of your choice to match the decor you have or make a few as gifts. What an easy, lovely, and inexpensive gift for your hostess, co- worker, neighbor, or Secret Santa. 

Just a few simple steps, and you're all set. 

  • Trace shape with pencil onto Designer Series Paper.
  • Cut out shape with Paper Snips.
  • Apply Multipurpose Glue to back side of DSP.
  • Adhere DSP to wood shape.
  • Tie bow and adhere to top of ornament.
  • Add other embellishments, letters, etc. as desired.
  • Repeat steps for all your wood shapes.

Make 1 or 3 or as many as makes you happy. Hang them separately or together as I did for a door decoration. You can even decorate the backsides too. Make it traditional or contemporary. Add your grandchildrens' names or pictures for a keepsake. In other words, let your creativity and imagination guide you to make it personal.
