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.

And, what is friendship but having coffee with a friend? I love this sentiment from the Coffee Cafe stamp set, and I added a sweet little coffee cup cut from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! 3 Lovely Words Friend Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

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

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.

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 and put your name and email address on our mailing list!

Autumn Mini Pizza Box ~ Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup stampin upHave you ever seen mini pizza boxes? I hadn’t…until Stampin’ Up! came out with them! 🙂 This decorated mini pizza box is my interpretation of this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Board we are working with:

For my project I used the first column down on the left (ribbon, floral, patterned paper) and the middle row across (floral, yellow, die-cut/punch). I started out working with the items in the first column down, but after I finished my pizza box I realized that the middle row across also applied!

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampin upThis project has no stamping, did you notice? It’s true! The top of the pizza box is covered with the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. And the pretty sunflower is simply cut out of the same paper! Easy, right?

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampinupSo what do you put in these little cuties? Several Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares would fit, or a few tea bags in their foil packages. But my favorite thing to put in these boxes is a set of little 3 x 3 handmade cards with envelopes. It makes a lovely gift!

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to pop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge website HERE to see what the other designers have come up with!

Sneak Peek ~ Beautiful Paper Rosettes!

Stampin Up! Be Merry Kit Rosette - Peggy Noe Stampinup

I love paper rosettes, what about you? They can be made by hand and I have to say, it does take a while. So if I ever find them pre-made I grab them up right away! Well, Stampin’ Up! has made me very happy – the new Holiday Catalog has a darling holiday kit called Be Merry, and this kit has 10 (seriously, 10!) beautiful pre-made white and gold rosettes!

Stampin Up Be Merry Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Look at these pretty guys! These rosettes are a full four inches around! The photo above was adjusted with an antique shading, and shows the white rosettes with the gold rim. There are five of these and 5 gold dotted ones.

Now I have to tell you that I didn’t put the kit together as I was supposed to 🙂 I couldn’t help myself, I just had to do a little something different! Instead of making the Christmas rosettes, my mind kept telling me…bows and lace! And these In Color Bitty Bows just look so cute right in the center of the rosettes! What can I say?

Stampin Up Be Merry Ornament Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Aren’t they adorable? These can be used as ornaments, package toppers, they could make a wreath, or even hang on a piece of jute and be a banner for the fireplace!

All of the Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile, I just love that. I’m going to put together another kit for you in the next few weeks so that you can see it assembled with the red and green holiday theme – as it’s supposed to be!!

PLACE A PRODUCT ORDER OF $75 or more (before shipping and tax) in my on line store this month and you can earn a spool of Linen Thread FREE. Linen Thread is going to be perfect for all your fall and holiday projects!

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.

You are going to love this bundle! Get your wish list started for the Holiday Catalog…there are lots of great new items that you are going to want!
