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.

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!

Thanks for stopping by today!

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!

Little Basket of Eggs!

Oh my goodness, look at these cute eggs!  I can’t even stand it they’re so adorable!  And they have personalities…look at the feet!

I’m just now starting to play with the Hey Chick stamp set.  It’s one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that you can only get with an order of $50 or more from Stampin’ Up!  All I can tell you is that you’ve got to get this adorable set!  It’s going to be perfect for all of our Easter and spring cards 🙂

The egg basket was created with a die from the Window Box Thinlits (the basket base) and the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The basket was stamped with one of the stamps from the Delicate Details stamp set.

I can see I’m going to have lots of fun with this set.  What about you?  Have you gotten this set yet? 🙂
