Guy’s Eclipse Birthday Card!

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinupWhat IS an eclipse card? It’s also called the hidden words technique. Letters of a word are raised up out of the rest of the card, and the letters look like they are hidden but coming right up out of the paper.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Framelits Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I just got the Large Letter Framelits Dies so of course I had to make an eclipse card! Actually, this was an easy card to make. It’s for a guy, so I used a blue (Dapper Denim) paper with an accent of Lemon Lime Twist. I lined up the letters on the paper and ran it through the Big Shot.

Stampin' Up! Handmade Envelope Eastern Palace - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Then I added a handmade envelope because the shape of my card wasn’t standard. Don’t even ask me about the dimensions…I just formed the envelope around the card 🙂 To trim the envelope I used a stamp from the Badges & Banners stamp set and punched it out with the Best Badge Punch.

Stampin' Up! Eclipse Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This was such a fun card to make! FYI, once you cut the letter out of the paper, layer the paper over a piece of a contrasting color. Then place the letters back in their openings, using our Foam Adhesive Strips. That’s it! Easy, right?

Sweet Moon Baby Cards!

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Moon Baby Gingham - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, we always need baby cards. This week I needed two baby cards (one for a little boy and one for a little girl) and didn’t have any! I reached for the Moon Baby stamp set.

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Gingham Moon Baby - Peggy Noe - stampinup

There are some adorable stamps in this set and the one I used for this card is a set of little stuffed animals 🙂 Look at this row if cuties! I stamped them first in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then had too much fun coloring them with the new Stampin’ Blends! The envelope has a few of the little guys 🙂

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Moon Baby Lemon Lime - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The die-cut word “sweet” is from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits ~ I love sweet things and I love the word “sweet.” It’s so appropriate for a baby card!

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Moon Baby Pink - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Here’s the card I made for a baby girl. Don’t you just love the little baby sleeping on the moon? (love, love this stamp!) I used a pretty pink dotted paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and then colored the baby’s little onesie to match 🙂

Pretty Pointer:  Use a stamp from the set on the outside of the envelope. This gives a little preview of what’s inside!

I’m back today with a video tutorial on how to make these quick and easy gift boxes! I showed you one of these darling little boxes the other day on the Pals Blog Hop HERE. I’m personally making a bunch of these for my holiday gifts and I was thinking you might like to make some too! Here’s the video:

The foil paper takes this box from ordinary to FABULOUS! Stampin’ Up! has a nice selection of foil papers (gold, silver, copper), but I personally love this Champagne Foil. And when you run the piece on the top of the box through the Big Shot with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, it really creates a WOW factor!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Gift Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

In addition to the Champagne Foil Box, I’ve also made another box using Cherry Cobbler card stock and panels made from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (4 panels 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″). The top of this box is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and embossed with the same embossing folder. AND, you can get this embossing folder FREE from me!

Fall Friend Card for Tic Tac Toe!

Prettypapercards Tic Tac Toe Friend Card with Fall Theme - Stampin' Up! stampinupIt’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and today’s card has a fall theme. I really do love fall, and I love to use fall colors. That’s why I chose the first row across in the challenge! Here’s this week’s board:

Sentiment – check; Fall Colors – check; Twine – check  🙂  And, I added a few leaves from Row 2 just for fun!

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Leaf Punch - Peggy Noe - stampinupLeaves have so many shades. To get leaves to look at all realistic I like to watercolor and combine colors. For the leaves here, I used Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach inks with an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White paper. After the water dried I splattered the paper with Fresh Fig ink. Then the leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Lovely Word Thinlits Dies - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The sentiment is cut from Cajun Craze card stock using the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. It sits on a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (love, love!). Underneath I tucked a strip of Fresh Fig card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. And tying it all up in a knot is a thin section of Jute Twine pulled apart from the larger piece of thread.

Pals Blog Hop: Anything But a Card!

Welcome to the Pals November 2017 Blog Hop featuring “Anything But a Card”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals wow you with projects like home decor items, gifts and 3-D items. Maybe even some card sets.

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.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Box Champagne Foil - Peggy Noe - stampinup

A pretty box is just what we need for holiday gift giving! As paper crafters, we have the ability to actually make an easy small box.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Gift Box Champagne Foil - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For this box I used a beautiful Champagne Foil Sheet ~ isn’t it gorgeous? To decorate the top of the box I added an additional piece of Champagne Foil that was embossed with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Do you see how it has the pattern of a snowflake? And the box opens easily at the front so that you can slip in the little gift!

Stampin' Up! Champagne Foil Holiday Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched Ribbon was slipped under the embossed piece and then tied up in a bow on the top. It’s the perfect finish to the blingy box!!

Stampin' Up! Champagne Foil Holiday Foil Gift Boxes - Prettypapercards - stampinup

You can use all kinds of different papers to make boxes. I made a second box using Cherry Cobbler card stock and the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. For this box I cut pieces of the designer series paper and adhered them on all of the sides of the box.

To make the box:

  • Start with an 11″ x 7″ piece of card stock
  • Placing the card stock in a horizontal/landscape position, use the score blade on your Stampin’ Trimmer to score at 2″ – 5″ – 7″ – and 10″
  • Turn the card stock to the vertical/portrait position and score at 2″ and 5″
  • Hold the card stock in the vertical/portrait position, with the smallest scored section at the top (1″)… you will see three scored sections along the top. Trim away the left and right sides, leaving a 3″ wide x 1″ deep tab. This forms the tab which is part of the lid of the box.
  • Turn the card stock back to the horizontal/landscape position and cut up from the bottom of the card stock at each vertical score line just as far as the first horizontal score line.
  • Flip the card stock around so that the side you have just cut is now at the top. Again cut up from the bottom of the piece at each vertical score line just as far as the first horizontal score line.
  • Fold and burnish each score line. Form the box with the tabbed lid at the top. Trim the sides of the lid to 1″ deep, to match the tab.
  • Put the box together, adhering the sides with Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse
  • Run a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of card stock through the Big Shot inside of the Winter Wonder Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (see how to get it FREE below!).
  • Tie ribbon around the embossed piece, making a bow at the top. Adhere to the top of your box.

I will be posting a video tutorial with instructions on how to assemble the box later this week. All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of this post.

I’d sure love to hear what you think of this box and my video. I’m trying to get better at them 🙂 Please leave your COMMENT HERE.

Thanks so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today! Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on December 13, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below.

Black and White Birthday and Ways to Save!

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Black and white plaid is so classic, who doesn’t like it? It can be casual or elegant, and that’s what makes it good for any occasion. Today’s card pairs it with the beautiful Berry Burst for a birthday card!

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Pretty Pointers:

  • Pair a bold color with a contrasting bold for a real WOW! Here the Basic Black and the Berry Burst play off of each other for a bright card.
  • Remember to decorate your envelope. It makes your card much more of an “experience.”
  • Soften a geometric. Here the doily and the curvy lines of the flourish die cut really soften the square pattern.

Prettypapercards Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The cute little flower in the lower left corner of the oval was stamped and then colored with Berry Burst and Powder Pink ink and a blender pen.
