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.

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.

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.

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!

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”.

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.
