Card of Comfort

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Color Me Happy - Peggy Noe - stampinupSo many times we need a comforting card to send to a friend. I needed a card like that recently. I love the Rose Wonder stamp set because it has some wonderful sentiments, and this verse is one of my favorites in the set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Blends - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It’s a nice, comforting verse and I think it will encourage my friend. I stamped it in Black Memento Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. Then I used a flower from a new stamp set called Color Me Happy, and I stamped three flowers around the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Color Me Happy Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I want you to see a close up of the flowers because I was able to use the new Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers called Stampin’ Blends. They won’t be available to customers for a while, but as a demonstrator I was able to get them early and play with them. I love the way they blend and move on the paper! Didn’t they turn out nice?

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Isaiah 4110 - Peggy Noe - stampinupAs soon as the Stampin’ Blends are available to customers, I’ll let you know RIGHT AWAY!! I can’t wait for you to try these fabulous markers!

In the meantime, I recommend the beautiful Rose Wonder stamp set. It’s one of my favorites! It has some great sentiments and a beautiful rose ~ how can you lose??  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fun Friend Card for Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup Tic Tac Toe ChallengeI love the Tic Tac Toe Challenges…they are so much fun! My card for this week’s challenge is a green, fall, friendship card (first column on the left)! Here is the board:For the “fall” element of the card I did a watercolor wash on Shimmery White paper using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Berry Burst inks. After the color wash dried, I splattered some Berry Burst ink over the paper in little dots.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe Friend Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup Tic Tac Toe Challenge

For the green element I punched leaves using my favorite new Leaf Punch! I use this punch constantly ~ these leaves are so cute and you can just slip them in on any card 🙂 Here I added a few Gold Foil leaves for bling (!) and a few strands of Jute Twine.

The card opens to reveal an inside full of pretty pumpkins from the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! 4 Painted Harvest Lovely Words - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This pumpkin panel lifts up to reveal the third section of the card.

Stampin' Up! 5 Lovely Words Painted Harvest - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For the inside, I used the die-cut circle from the front of the card and affixed a banner with a nice sentiment from the Basket of Wishes stamp set. This is a fun fold and it’s a little surprise for the one who opens it!

Stampin' Up! 6 Lovely Words Painted Harvest - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I have a template for you so that you can make this same card. It’s super easy! Start with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. The “X” below shows you the section you cut out. The dotted lines represent the places you will fold. Each section is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2.” Easy, right?

Quick and Easy Halloween Treats!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Treat Bags - Peggy Noe - Painted Autumn

Are you looking for a way to make some quick and easy Halloween treat bags? It’s a snap with just a few supplies.

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Halloween Treats - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Use any treats you like. I love to use candy corn because it’s so colorful. I put the treats in cellophane bags, folded the tops of the bags and stapled them shut. Then I folded one Delicate White Doily on top of each bag and secured it with a decorated clothes pin.

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Fall Treats - Peggy Noe - Painted Autumn

The cute little pumpkin that is on the doily was fussy cut from a sheet of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and adhered with some Fast Fuse Adhesive. The same paper was also used to decorate the clothes pin, and a bow of Linen Thread was double tied on the pin. Easy, right? See all the products I used in the list at the end.

Make a Pumpkin!

Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Pumpkin Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupIt’s October and time for pumpkins! I love October, and Fall! Today I want to show you a simple way to make a pumpkin of any size.

Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Thankful Card - Peggy Noe - Pumpkin Card

All you need to make a pretty pumpkin is three ovals. You can die cut the ovals or punch the ovals with any size oval punch. Place two of the ovals to the back and one in the center on top, as shown above. I like to pull the tops together a little tighter than the bottom. For this pumpkin, I cut the ovals with the Stitched Shape Framelits.

This is a quick and easy way to make a pumpkin. Want a large pumpkin? Use large ovals. Small pumpkin? Use small ovals. It’s up to you!

Embossing Paste Leaves!

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupI absolutely love the new leaf punch! There is so much you can do with it! For today’s project, I used it as a mask for embossing paste!Stampin' Up! Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s cards are the ones we made at our one-day retreat, Create the Day Away, and I couldn’t wait for you to see them! One of our demonstrations was on using embossing paste in different ways.

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

For this card we created a “mask” by punching a piece of Heavyweight Card Stock with the Leaf Punch. We laid the punched piece of card stock on top of the thin card stock panel and covered it with Embossing Paste. Lift up the mask and you are left with the embossing paste leaves!

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous It's Your Day Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

We made both of these cards so that we could use a different arrangement of the card elements and a different sentiment on each card.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Cards - Peggy Noe - stampinup

What do you think? Do you have any preference? Different options, different stamps, different combination of colors…and all quick and easy!

Give it a try! Punch your own leaves and use the punched piece as a mask for embossing paste. Send me a picture of your project ~ I’d LOVE to see it!

Fun, Fun, Fun!

Yesterday was our one-day retreat called Create the Day Away! We had SO much fun! It was here in San Diego…we had it in a beautiful hotel ballroom with a crystal chandelier! This is my friend Linda Foster. The two of us put on the retreat!

It was a fun day of crafting! We had demonstrations of techniques, lots of make and takes, games, and PRIZES!! Here are the attendees working hard on their projects…

We had a fun photo area. Here are some crafters having their photo taken!

We also had little gifts for all attendees at their places when they arrived. One of their gifts was a sweet and adorable 3″ x 5″ index card spiral-bound notebook made by Linda. Look at the beautiful cover made of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper and tied with a gorgeous black and white striped bow!

We had a fun photo station where everyone could have their pictures taken and, of course, Linda and I had to get in on the action!

We are hoping to have another event in the Spring! If you’d like to be on our mailing list and receive notice of future events, please go to the website createthedayaway.com and put your name and email address on our mailing list!

Happiest of Birthdays!

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days Happy Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupOk, so this cake is too cute! I just have to use it! It’s from the Happiest of Days stamp set, my new favorite birthday set.

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days Happy Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampin up

The elements of today’s card all sit on a panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder. This is one of the sweetest embossing folders ~ everything looks so good with it!

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days Birthday Wishes Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupTo add a bit more to this card, I’ve colored in a few places with ink pads and a blender pen.  This gives it a little personality 🙂

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Days Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampin up

Pretty Pointer:  A good way to add interest to your card is to highlight a stamped element. One way to do that is to fussy cut the stamped image, like I’ve done here with the birthday cake.

My September Host Code Gift! Spend $75 or more with me using this month’s host code above and earn the NEW Champagne Foil Paper FREE.  Orders of $150 or more should not use the host code and automatically qualify for the Champagne Foil.  Qualifying totals exclude shipping and tax.
