Announcing: Create the Day Away, a Cardmaking Experience!

Wow! I’m so excited to let you know about this special event! My friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Linda Foster, is teaming up with me to present a wonderful day of card making (birthday cards, thank you cards, holiday and fall cards!), food and fun here in San Diego!

Put the date on your calendars now (phone, planner…) and watch for registration to open next week. We are planning lots of fun things! If you just can’t wait 🙂 leave a comment or email me at peggy@prettypapercards.com and I’ll give you more details!!

Ok, now on to today’s card 🙂

Wanted to give you another peek at the fabulous new stamp set and dies (a bundle!) released early by Stampin’ Up! The Holiday Catalog doesn’t come out until September 1, but they want us to get excited!! So this month they’ve released a bundle early! Whee!

I decided to use Lemon Lime Twist, Gold and Black for my colors. It’s a fresh and new holiday combination! Look closely at the edges of the Lemon Lime Twist piece. That neat border was produced with one of the dies from the new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. These dies have so many options. Here is a photo of all the dies that you get with this set. I can’t wait to use all of them!


Pretty Pointer: Do you see the little gold dots on today’s card? Those come from a layer of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. I love these sheets! The design is gold on one side and silver on the reverse. Use these to add a layer of fun and beauty to any project — especially holiday projects!

New Feature on My Blog!

I’ve added a great new feature to my blog. To find out exactly what I’ve used to create this card, go to the bottom of this post and see small photos of each product! The best thing is that you can click on any photo to go straight through to my store for specific details about that product. And, if you want to order any of the products, you are right in my store and can just add those items to your cart! I’m hoping you’ll like it and that it will help you to identify just what you’ll need to create the same project!

I sure love your comments! I’d love to hear what you think about today’s post ~ CLICK HERE to leave me a comment!

My First Christmas Card of the Year!

Yippee! The first Holiday Bundle of the year has been released to demonstrators in the month of July and I just got mine today! I love it!!

It’s called Carols of Christmas and not only is the stamp set great, the dies are amazing! Over the next few weeks I’ll be showing you more of the dies, but let me just say that they are different and very neat! For my card today, I used the trees and the little deer.

Isn’t he adorable? There is a stamp of the little deer and a die, so you can use them together or separate. For my card I used the die on some Dapper Denim card stock but used the stamp on the envelope. So far, this little guy is my favorite thing in the whole bundle!!

The trees were cut out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I love the fact that they look like snow. It sounds refreshing right about now because it’s a hot summer here in Southern California!

Now the best news is that YOU can get this bundle starting August 1st! It’s an early release in advance of the Holiday Catalog. We could use this set and get all of our holiday cards made by the end of August! Wouldn’t that be amazing? 🙂

And, as an added bonus, for every $50 order you place in the month of July, you will receive a $5 Bonus Days Coupon to spend in August, on anything…but it would make a nice little savings on this fabulous bundle!

 

 

There’s so much going on this month! You also have the opportunity to get my Prettypapercards by Mail for the month of July!

This is perfect for summer crafting because you receive a wonderful birthday stamp set (for use all year round) and all the cut papers and die cuts and embellishments you need to create 3 pretty cards. And you don’t even need to figure out how to put the cards together because I send you a full tutorial with directions to put each card together! And, as a bonus, you receive one of my handmade cards! CLICK HERE for the whole scoop. I’d love to have YOU join me this month! Email me at peggy@prettypapercards.com to let me know you’re IN!
