Delightful Daisy Gift Bag and Coordinating Card!

Stampin Up Daisy Delight Gift Bag Ideas - Peggy Noe StampinupDo you ever need a gift bag to coordinate with your gift card? Being a paper crafter, I like to create gift bags and cards that have a similar theme. Especially for a birthday.

Stampinup Daisy Delight Gift Bag Daisy Punch - Peggy Noe Stampin UpFor this gift I used a bag I had on hand and decorated it. Truthfully, this was the only color of bag I had. White or yellow or green might have worked better, but I can use what I have 🙂 First I stamped the white tissue paper with the daisy stamp using Crushed Curry Ink. Then I stamped some individual daisies on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the Daisy Punch. They decorate the ribbon and the bag.

Pretty Pointer: The Daisy Delight Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Daisy Punch are sold together as a bundle for a 10% savings!!

Stampin Up Daisy Delight Birthday Card - Peggy Noe Stampinup

The coordinating birthday card uses the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, more punched daisies, and a few glittering gold leaves.

Stampin Up Daisy Delight Birthday Card Idea - Peggy Noe StampinupSNEAK PEEK ALERT! This sentiment is punched with the NEW Everyday Label Punch! Doesn’t it have a fun outline? This punch will be available from the Holiday Catalog starting September 1st! You will love it!!

Sneak Peek ~ Beautiful Paper Rosettes!

Stampin Up! Be Merry Kit Rosette - Peggy Noe Stampinup

I love paper rosettes, what about you? They can be made by hand and I have to say, it does take a while. So if I ever find them pre-made I grab them up right away! Well, Stampin’ Up! has made me very happy – the new Holiday Catalog has a darling holiday kit called Be Merry, and this kit has 10 (seriously, 10!) beautiful pre-made white and gold rosettes!

Stampin Up Be Merry Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Look at these pretty guys! These rosettes are a full four inches around! The photo above was adjusted with an antique shading, and shows the white rosettes with the gold rim. There are five of these and 5 gold dotted ones.

Now I have to tell you that I didn’t put the kit together as I was supposed to 🙂 I couldn’t help myself, I just had to do a little something different! Instead of making the Christmas rosettes, my mind kept telling me…bows and lace! And these In Color Bitty Bows just look so cute right in the center of the rosettes! What can I say?

Stampin Up Be Merry Ornament Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Aren’t they adorable? These can be used as ornaments, package toppers, they could make a wreath, or even hang on a piece of jute and be a banner for the fireplace!

All of the Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile, I just love that. I’m going to put together another kit for you in the next few weeks so that you can see it assembled with the red and green holiday theme – as it’s supposed to be!!

PLACE A PRODUCT ORDER OF $75 or more (before shipping and tax) in my on line store this month and you can earn a spool of Linen Thread FREE. Linen Thread is going to be perfect for all your fall and holiday projects!

New Painted Harvest Sneak Peek for Tic Tac Toe!

Today is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge day and I have a sneak peek for you! I want to show you my FAVORITE stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog! Yes, I know you’re thinking it should be a Christmas holiday set, but this fabulous fall set has stolen my heart!

The set is called Painted Harvest and it comes as a bundle with a great new leaf punch! This bundle will be available starting September 1st. Do you have a copy of the Holiday Catalog? All of my current customers receive a FREE catalog in the mail. If you would like one, simply place an order in my online store HERE, and I will send out your catalog right away!

Here is the Tic Tac Toe Board for this week’s challenge. For my card today I used the far left column: burlap, flower, leaf. Click on the board below to go to the website and see what the other designers have created! 🙂

This card has several layers that all combine to give depth and texture. On top of the card base is a layer of Whisper White card stock (5-1/4″ x 4″) bordered with washi tape on the top and bottom, and stamped all over with a cute little dotted stamp that is part of the Painted Harvest set. This gives a sweet background for the main feature!

The main feature is this beautiful sunflower ~ I LOVE it! I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and then fussy cut it with my paper snips. It’s raised up with dimensionals on top of a layer of bulap wrapped back and forth. After I punched the leaves out with the spiffy new leaf punch, I tucked them in behind the flower with a bit of Tombow Multipurpose Glue on the ends.

You are going to love this bundle! Get your wish list started for the Holiday Catalog…there are lots of great new items that you are going to want!

Pretty Sour Cream Container and Video!

Sour cream containers are such great treat holders, and they are so easy to make! Today I have a video tutorial to show you just how easy they are!

For this project I’ve used the gorgeous Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. These papers come in a 6 x 6 size, which is perfect for the sour cream containers, and isn’t each paper pattern beautiful?

Delicate ribbons and lace tie the openings of the containers together until you are ready to open them and eat the yummy treats. I imagine these being served at a lovely English tea and they would have nuts in them 🙂

Here’s the video tutorial for you with step-by-step instructions:

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek for You!

Oh boy, I just love it when we get a new catalog!! It’s time for the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and, as a demonstrator, I’ve been able to order new items early before the catalog goes live on September 1st. Now the Holiday Catalog features not only Christmas and New Year’s items, but fall and Thanksgiving and Halloween. It’s chock full of gorgeous stamps and papers and ribbons!

The first stamp set I wanted to play with is the Count My Blessings set. Today’s card uses my favorite stamp from the set ~ I just LOVE these flowers! Look at the way they are opening to show their little seed-like centers!

The colors here are Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Fresh Fig. I think these are going to be my go-to colors this fall. The flowers and leaves were colored in with a Blender Pen, putting a little more ink in some areas to create shading. A bow tied with Linen Thread finishes off the fall theme.

I love hearing from you! Let me know what you think about today’s post or ask me a question by leaving me a COMMENT HERE!

MY AUGUST HOST CODE OFFER!  Learn here how you can earn a spool of Linen Thread FREE when you shop with me in August!

August Pals Blog Hop: Cut it Out!

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

My card today uses both a punch and thinlits. Can you spot both? Well, the word “hugs” is cut with the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. I just love the words on these dies, especially the one I’ve used today. “Hugs” is such a sweet sentiment for so many occasions. I’m going to send this card to a friend who hasn’t been feeling well, and it really expresses my thoughts for her.

Have you spotted the punched pieces? They are on the left and right sides of the card. That pretty lace is actually card stock punched with the Decorative Label Punch. This punch is fabulous because you can add these pretty little lacy bits anywhere on your card!

I have another “cut” to show you, and that’s the flower on the envelope! Using my Paper Snips, I cut one flower out of a piece of this gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I glued it onto the envelope with a little Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue. I love to give a preview of my card on the outside of the envelope!

To see all the items used on this card, scroll down to the bottom of this post where each item is listed. You can click on any item to go to my online store and learn more!

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave me a comment HERE. I’d love to hear what you have to say about my creative “Cuts”.

What is Prettypapercards by Mail? It is a special monthly kit which includes everything you will need to create 3 cards designed by me, and using the stamp set I’m featuring for the month. I cut all the paper and assemble all the items you will need to make the cards just like I do. And, you will receive my pdf tutorials with instructions and tips to create the cards. A video will also be included with special tips from me. If you like the cards I make and want to know how I make them, this is your opportunity!

On this card, the two front sides fold to the center and the card is then held together with what is called a “belly band.” This card was created with the Wood Words stamp set. It’s a fun card both to make and to receive!

I love the red heart stamp that’s part of the set. I used it both on the inside of the card and on the corner of the envelope. You can see from the heart stamped here that it looks a bit rustic. This whole stamp set has a rustic vibe to it…and that’s what makes it different and fun! We made this card at my classes this past weekend and my students loved it!

The Absolutely Cutest Rose Stamp Ever!!

Oh dear. Every time I get a new stamp set it becomes my favorite!! Does that happen to you? The Happiest of Days stamp set is now my favorite 🙂 I mean, look at these great fonts! And what about the absolutely cutest single rose stamp ever?

Here the rose is stamped with the Basic Black Archival Ink, and then colored in using a Blender Pen and Flirty Flamingo Ink. The green here is the subtle Pear Pizzaz. And the background piece is Powder Pink cardstock. These colors blend beautifully together.

Here is a photo of the complete stamp set. I haven’t used the cake or the little package stamps yet, but aren’t they the cutest?  I’ll be getting to those very soon!

Happiest of Days Clear Mount Stamp Set
Item No. 143796

Pretty Pointer: When you have a special image or a favorite image, raise it up by using a Stampin’ Dimensional. This adds interest and gives depth to your card front.

In the photo below you see that I first stamped the left side of the card with the single rose stamp. Then for emphasis (and because this is the absolute cutest rose stamp ever!) I stamped another rose on a separate sheet of cardstock, cut it out by hand, and affixed it right over the previously stamped image using a dimensional. Then I put a sweet little pearl in the center.

I’d love to hear what you think of today’s card…I LOVE your comments 🙂 CLICK HERE to leave me a comment today!

And don’t forget the newest feature on my blog: all of the products used to make today’s card are shown at the bottom of this post.

Announcing: Create the Day Away, a Cardmaking Experience!

Wow! I’m so excited to let you know about this special event! My friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Linda Foster, is teaming up with me to present a wonderful day of card making (birthday cards, thank you cards, holiday and fall cards!), food and fun here in San Diego!

Ok, now on to today’s card 🙂

Wanted to give you another peek at the fabulous new stamp set and dies (a bundle!) released early by Stampin’ Up! The Holiday Catalog doesn’t come out until September 1, but they want us to get excited!! So this month they’ve released a bundle early! Whee!

I decided to use Lemon Lime Twist, Gold and Black for my colors. It’s a fresh and new holiday combination! Look closely at the edges of the Lemon Lime Twist piece. That neat border was produced with one of the dies from the new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. These dies have so many options. Here is a photo of all the dies that you get with this set. I can’t wait to use all of them!


Pretty Pointer: Do you see the little gold dots on today’s card? Those come from a layer of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. I love these sheets! The design is gold on one side and silver on the reverse. Use these to add a layer of fun and beauty to any project — especially holiday projects!
