Simple & Suite!

Clean and simple, that’s what this card is all about.  It’s actually powerful~one sentiment in a very pretty font, stamped in a striking color.

Just a few enamel dots are added for interest.  But the sentiment does all the work.  I mean, really, wouldn’t you love to receive this card?

Pretty Pointer:  Choose a sentiment you love, one with a pretty font.  Stamp it in a different color, not black.  Add some classic-looking embellishments~just a few.  Enamel dots are perfect!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Make Someone Happy!

I love this sentiment for a thank you card!  I have a friend who gives me just the right gifts.  She seems to know more than anyone how to give me a gift that is thoughtful and special.  Maybe you have someone like that in your life?  Well, this stamp is just what you need!

I made this card today for my friend, to thank her for a sweet gift 🙂  I loaded it with pretty flowers from the Oh So Succulent stamp set.  I used a blender pen to do a bit of shading to bring the flowers to life.

The leaves have been die cut with the Stylish Stems Framelit Dies and tucked in around the flowers.  I also added some tiny bits of a White Lace Doily.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Do you have the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set?  If not, just click on the picture below to go straight to my store!  It’s a gorgeous stamp set, you’ll love it!

Pretty Thank You Tags!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

When my customers place an order with me they always get something special and handmade from me. This month they are receiving a pretty thank you tag like the ones above!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

These tags are CASE’d from a sample I saw in a Stampin’ Up! magazine.  As demonstrators we receive a bi-monthly magazine with ideas for great creations and I saw this tag and loved it.  I changed it up just a bit and used a different washi tape.

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

The pretty flowers are from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Avant Garden.  You may notice that one of the tags is lighter than the other one.  That’s because I stamped the flowers in Archival Black ink on one tag, and used Pear Pizzaz ink on the other one.  It really gives a different look, doesn’t it?  Then I colored in the flowers with some Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum ink.

So, don’t you love these flowers?  Well, the only way to get this stamp set is by placing a $50 order with Stampin’ Up!  And, here’s the best part, when you place that order, the Avant Garden stamp set is…FREE! Yes, totally FREE!  That’s the wonderful thing about Sale-a-Bration:  FREE PRODUCTS!

If you want this stamp set, just CLICK HERE to go straight to my store, choose $50 in fabulous products (before shipping and taxes), and add this item (Number 143272) to your order.  It will be FREE!!

May I suggest for your order:  the 2″ Circle Punch (Item No. 133782) for $18, the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (Item No. 133324) for $23, Archival Basic Black Ink (Item No. 140931) for $7, and the Floral Bouquet Designer Washi Tape (Item No. 141664) for $5.  That adds up to $53 !!!  Add the Avant Garden set FOR FREE!! and you’re good to go!

Thank you for stopping by today, and have fun shopping!

Little Basket of Eggs!

Oh my goodness, look at these cute eggs!  I can’t even stand it they’re so adorable!  And they have personalities…look at the feet!

I’m just now starting to play with the Hey Chick stamp set.  It’s one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that you can only get with an order of $50 or more from Stampin’ Up!  All I can tell you is that you’ve got to get this adorable set!  It’s going to be perfect for all of our Easter and spring cards 🙂

The egg basket was created with a die from the Window Box Thinlits (the basket base) and the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The basket was stamped with one of the stamps from the Delicate Details stamp set.

I can see I’m going to have lots of fun with this set.  What about you?  Have you gotten this set yet? 🙂

Pop of Pink!

Pop of Pink is one of my favorite designer series papers!  All of the Stampin’ Up! papers are two-sided which means you have lots of patterns to choose from.  The sheet I’m using today has classic black and white dots on one side ~ a great background for any design.  Not only does this paper have black and white designs, but also the bright pink called Melon Mambo.

Because Stampin’ Up! has card stock that coordinates with all the designer series papers, it was easy to grab some Melon Mambo card stock and use it for this pretty die-cut flower.

This flower is from the Special Reason bundle.  The bundle includes both the dies and the stamp set, everything you need to make a fabulous card!

Pretty Pointer:  Sometimes after you’ve run a die through the Big Shot, it’s fun to leave some of the pieces IN the paper. This adds a bit of interest to your creation!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy stamping!!

Beautiful You!!

Today’s card uses the Beautiful You stamp set.  This set is really something different.  I love it!

These stamps are very artistic, they make beautiful scenes.  And on top of that, they are amazingly easy to stamp!  They give a clear crisp image.

It doesn’t take any time at all to make a great card!  For this card I stamped the girl with the umbrella, then I stamped some designer series paper with the same stamp.  I cut out the umbrella from the dsp and pieced it onto the umbrella on the girl. Super easy — and a big WOW!

I added a quick “sky” above the umbrella using the Sale-a-Bration set called Delicate Details (FREE with a $50 order!).  Then I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and punched it out with a circle punch.  Quick and done!

Oh, I forgot…I used Watercolor Pencils on her dress!  It’s so much fun to color…so relaxing!  And, making cards is relaxing, don’t you think?  That’s something I really like about card making, it gives me a chance to get away into a world of colors and papers and lace (sometimes), and forget everything else.  What about you?  Why do you like card making?  Let me know, I love your comments!

Soft Valentine from a Friend!

Sometimes I receive lovely cards in the mail, and today I want to share one with you!  This card was made by my friend and downline, Su Mohr!

Su is a master at using designer series paper, and you can tell by the way she’s used it on this card.

The die cut “love” is from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  I “love” the Blushing Bride card stock she’s used here.  So sweet!

Thank you, Su, for the wonderful Valentine!

Pals Blog Hop: Case the Catty!

2017badge-flamingo

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for February 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are CASE’ing a project shown in a current Stampin’ Up! catalog. After all, with the Annual, Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs available right now, there is much inspiration from which to choose. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the lineup on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Hop 3 best

What does “CASE the catty” mean anyway?  It means to make any project shown in any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs. I chose to used the Any Occasion stamp set and make a few of the cards shown in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog!  This darling stamp set is on pages 14 and 15 of the Sale-a-Bration Catalog (see the catalog at the end of this post!).  I cased (copied) one of the cards and then created a few cards which are similar to the ones shown in the photo.

Now, there are several fabulous things about this stamp set.  The first fabulous thing is that it’s F-R-E-E!! Yes, FREE with a $50 purchase!  Who can beat that?

Hop 3 clothespins

The second fabulous thing about this set is that is SO cute!  Oh my goodness, it’s darling!  The stamps are small and can fit anywhere (and small is cute, right?).  But also, I mean just look at the tiny gift box and bow stamps on the birthday card in the middle above.  And check out the little tassels on the thank you card.  Super cuteness!!

Hop Pink standing

And what do you think of the tiny lace on the baby card above?  It’s actually two stamps, the swoopy line is one stamp and the lace is another stamp!

Hop 3 standing row

And third, this set is crazy versatile!  I’ve counted, and there are at least 7 types of cards that you could make from this one stamp set.  Wow!  20 different stamps come in the set and you just mix and match ~ how great is that?

Hop tu flat
