Sparkle for the Remarkable Inkbig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for July 2017. This month our theme is “SPARKLE”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Peggy Noe, 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.

Sparkle! Who doesn’t love sparkle? What a fabulous theme for our blog hop! A Gold Striped Treat Bag is the beginning of my “sparkle” project today. These bags are so much fun to embellish!

I used the pretty Berry Burst as an accent color and made a tag of Berry Burst card stock. The tag is adorned with a “lovely” heart cut from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Lovely Words thinlits dies. The gold really sparkles against the berry!

A strip of 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst runs along the lower white stripe. Sparkly rhinestones line the ribbon strip.

Pretty Pointer: Do something different with your supplies. Use an item in an unusual way, the way the ribbon above is used in a way you wouldn’t expect. It gives an element of surprise to your project!

These bags are so nice for treats and little gifts. You can put almost anything in them. What’s your suggestion? Obviously, a cookie, a few candies, a nice bar of soap, some tea bags… I’d love to hear more! Leave me a comment and tell me what you would use this bag for 🙂

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 in the list.

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!

Pals Blog Hop: Textures or Techniques

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and want you to enjoy our creations!

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the line-up 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 card today focuses on both texture and technique, and it uses some continuing products and some new products! Let’s talk about texture. A card can be fun and interesting because of the texture on the card.

To add texture to my card I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder on a panel of Shimmery White card stock. Then I watercolored the panel with Sweet Sugarplum ink. You can see how the ink filled in the white space between the petals in some places and not in other places ~ this also adds texture!

Pretty Pointer: Shimmery White card stock is perfect for times when you want to both watercolor and use an embossing folder. It is a paper that is recommended for watercoloring and is also thin enough to go through an embossing folder.

For more texture, I added some of the brand new 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in the new In Color, Berry Burst (loving this ribbon!). I topped that with some Very Vanilla 1/2′ Lace Trim and finished it all off with an open lacy-looking flower. The “lovely” die cut sentiment is from the brand new Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.

All the details of the items I used are at the bottom of this post. Hope this gives you some ideas for adding texture to your own projects!

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

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!!

From the Heart Blog Hop!

2017badge-flamingo

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for January 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects showcase themes that are “from the heart.” This includes any of the following themes… Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and/or Sympathy. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Hop envieSometimes we just need a fancy Valentine.  Whether you want to give someone a fancy Valentine or you want to receive one…  And, if you need a fancy Valentine today, then this is for you 🙂

Hop cu RThe star element of this card is the 3-D heart!  It’s super-easy to make.  I cut 5 hearts using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies. Each heart was stamped, both on the front and the back, with a flourish stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set.  The stamping puts patterns on the hearts which coordinate with the background designer series paper.

Hop flat

Each heart was then folded in half and the sides glued together.  I love the result!

Hop cu L

The pretty Lace Doily is new in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  These doilies are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other side.  How versatile is that?  For my card I used the Very Vanilla side to go with the Very Vanilla card base.

Hop standing

Behind the doily is a circle punched from Calypso Coral card stock.  This highlights both the doily and the heart!  The Calypso Coral frame was created using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
