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!

Happy Easter Message!

You know, Easter is a happy message!  I like it that the stamp set I used for this card is called “Easter Message” and this is a happy Easter card!

It’s a beautiful stamp set ~ I love these lilies!  This was an easy card to make using a few ink pads and a blender pen.  The lilies were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink to start.  Then I just filled them in by coloring using the blender pen and picking up a little ink from the lid of the ink pads.

And, of course, I had to add a bit of the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper!  Don’t forget, the Assorted Glimmer Paper Pack is FREE through March 31st with a $50 order!  Don’t miss out, order soon!

Do you stamp a little something on your envelope?  I like to.  It just gives a little hint of what’s inside 🙂  If we are sending a special handmade greeting card, I just think it’s nice to add a little something on the envelope.  For today’s card I stamped a few lilies on the envelope corner.

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!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sweet Sugarplum Thanks! (GDP076)

Today for the Global Design Project Challenge we are to copy (case) a card by the fabulous Kylie Bertucci!  Kylie is an amazing artist.  Click on her card below to see what the other designers have done.

Of course I had to use the beautiful Sale-a-Bration Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper!  For the panel I placed a Lace Doily over Whisper White card stock and sponged over it with Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I love how it came out!

The sentiment is from the stamp set called All Things Thanks.  It’s been heat embossed in silver on top of the sponged panel.

Thank  you for stopping by today!  Pop on over to the Global Design Project site and enter your own card!

The Endless Birthday Card!

This past weekend was my father-in-law’s 90th birthday!  We had a special family dinner and I made him this endless (sometimes called never ending) card.  Our family members signed little cropped pieces of card stock and I was able to include them all on the card.  As you can see below, some of the family got quite fancy with their computers 🙂  He loved it!

The endless card keeps opening up and opening up and you end back at the beginning 🙂  The card actually opens three times.  The above photo is the first opening.  I put most of the family greetings here.

This photo shows the second opening of the card.  You can see that I have to hold it down with my finger to give you a good view of it.

And this is the back of the card.  When you open it from here (by separating it at the middle), you return to the front of the card.  Isn’t this neat?  Dad loved his card and I think it will be a treasure for him as he slowly reads the comments from the family.

I made a special envelope for the card using our Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.  The pretty label on the envelope uses the labels from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.  And, I stamped the letters on the label with the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set.

The endless cards aren’t that hard to make once you get the hang of them.  I’ve made several and they get easier every time!  Here’s a little video I made for you showing an endless card made with the Stampin’ Up! Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  This isn’t a tutorial, but it shows you how the card opens.

For a tutorial on how to make the card, I’ll refer you to a wonderful video by Robin Messenheimer.  CLICK HERE to go right to her tutorial.  Have fun!

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!
