Ruffled Ribbon Birthday!

Today’s card is such a fun birthday card! Sometimes I like to make different birthday cards, out of the ordinary, something unexpected.

My unexpected element today is a bold Berry Burst ruffled ribbon. I’ve mentioned how I love the crinkled seam binding and I like to ruffle it loosely on a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Underneath the ribbon I’ve tucked a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. These two colors look SO good together!

Actually, my husband helped me design this card! He’s very artistic and many times he advises me when I’m unsure of a layout. I really like the way he arranged the daisies, I would never even think of adding them! Pretty neat to have a designing husband 🙂

Only a few more days left for my June Special …

Pick a “B” Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B,” features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

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.

The “B” in my card today is BIRTHDAY!! We always need birthday cards, don’t we, so this is a great “B” to choose. This sweet little “happy birthday” sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I mean, even the name of the stamp set makes you want it, right? 🙂

Today I’m using the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack. This pack contains lots of individual cards with designs on the front and the back. This is a 3″ x 4″ card with a wreath on it and a light flower pattern on the edges.

I angled this card on top of a panel of Berry Burst card stock which was embossed with the new – and darling – Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

A few die-cut leaves, a little wooden element, and a pretty ribbon finish off the card. The color theme for my card is from pages 56 and 57 of our annual catalog: Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive. I’m crazy about this combination!

Thanks again for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on July 12th. We’re having a pattern party! Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. See you on July 12th for the next Pals Blog Hop!

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for May 2017. This month our theme is “Sneak Peek”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Prettypapercards, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe.

Today’s card is a sneak peek of the new set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This stamp set has 32 stamps and many of them are sentiments in adorable fonts. That’s one thing I look for in a stamp set ~ good sentiments. When you need a card, the main thing is the right sentiment. Once you have that you can coordinate all the rest of the card around that sentiment.

And the best stamp sets are those with both fabulous sentiments AND pretty things to go with them! Look at these sweet flowers and pods and leaves! They are darling and just what I needed to make this card.

Pretty Pointer: The clear dots that look like pearls are really dots of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Just put a tiny “bubble” of glue on your card (and in this case, several bubbles!) and set it aside to dry. It’s a great way to create your own embellishments!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are at my blog – Peggy Noe, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.

Easy Birthday Blast Card!

Birthdays are so special and, if you’re like me you want to give a really special card.  Well, I think this is a pretty special card 🙂

The Star Blast Edgelits (part of the Birthday Blast Bundle) are FABULOUS!  Look at all that detail!  And this card is really a snap to make ~ seriously!

I cut out the star blast with the edgelits and used the stars that popped out to decorate the top of the card. The sentiment is actually from the Big on Birthdays stamp set.  I really like the way this sentiment looks on the base of the star blast.

A Lace Doily was slipped under the sentiment piece and then I tied a few pieces of Linen Thread around the Whisper White card stock.

This Bundle is one you can have on hand for a long time.  It’s going to be one of my go-to birthday bundles!

And, this is such a great time to make this Bundle part of your collection!  Why?  Because it’s Sale-a-Bration, the best sale of the year!  With every qualifying order you receive one special item FREE from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogs below!

The Remarkable Inkbig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “Sale-A-Bration”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Pretty Paper Cards,  or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe at Pretty Paper Cards.

I’m so happy to be taking part in today’s blog hop!  To celebrate our theme, my card today has LOTS of Sale-a-Bration items!  Just for fun I tried to get in as many as I could.  Can you spot them all?

Well, the flowers are from the Avant Garden stamp set.  I stamped three on the Whisper White panel, and then stamped four on another sheet and fussy cut them out to adhere on top of the other flowers.

I gave the flowers little stamen centers using the Botanical Builders Framelits and Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.  I had to get in the fabulous Glimmer Paper!

The lace at the top is stamped from the Delicate Details stamp set.  Don’t you just love lace?  I do, and I love that I can add it anywhere on my card using the stamps in this set!

The happy birthday banner is from the Any Occasion stamp set.  This set is totally fun!  You get the “clothes line” stamp with lots of words and phrases  to hang on the clothes line 🙂

So, I count four different Sale-a-Bration items, what about you?  Did you catch them all?  Which items do you already have?  Remember, these Sale-a-Bration items are only available through March 31st, so get them while you can!!

Spring Has Sprung Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring spring or spring-related projects. 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 can see all the projects.

My project today is a spring birthday card in a pretty glassine envelope!  Stampin’ Up! glassine bags made fabulous envelopes for cards!

The card just pulls out of the envelope easily.  For this card I made a little topper of lace doilies by cutting the doilies in half and adhering them to the back of the card.

The card itself has several layers that open up to reveal the sentiment 🙂  Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate with a sheet of Vellum underneath are attached to the card at the top using my favorite washi tape (the copper dotted tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape).

When you lift the layers up you find the pretty birthday wish from the Big on Birthdays stamp set!  I made this card for a dear friend who has a birthday later this month.  I’m going to write a little note there in the center of the page 🙂

You’ll noticed that I used about as much glimmer paper as I could!  I love it, and right now (until March 31st) you can get this beautiful glimmer paper FREE during Sale-a-Bration! (See below!)

Layers, layers and more layers make this glassine envelope really pop!  I hope you’ll try these glassine bags for envelopes.  Of course, you have to personally deliver a card with this type of envelope, but you know the person who receives it will be blown away!!

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Bling, Bling, and More Bling!!

Beautiful You.  It’s an amazing stamp set.  Truthfully, the drawings of the women are so good, not like anything I’ve seen before in a stamp.

This is a very special card.  I made it for my daughter’s birthday!  She’s an amazing person, a gorgeous woman, and she loves bling!

The Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper and the big gold dotted dsp (from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper) really make it sparkle!

She loved her card!  I’m so glad I had these great items to create the perfect card!
