The card opens to reveal an inside full of pretty pumpkins from the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

This pumpkin panel lifts up to reveal the third section of the card.

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!

I have a template for you so that you can make this same card. It’s super easy! Start with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. The “X” below shows you the section you cut out. The dotted lines represent the places you will fold. Each section is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2.” Easy, right?

Make a Pumpkin!

Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Pumpkin Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupIt’s October and time for pumpkins! I love October, and Fall! Today I want to show you a simple way to make a pumpkin of any size.

Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Thankful Card - Peggy Noe - Pumpkin Card

All you need to make a pretty pumpkin is three ovals. You can die cut the ovals or punch the ovals with any size oval punch. Place two of the ovals to the back and one in the center on top, as shown above. I like to pull the tops together a little tighter than the bottom. For this pumpkin, I cut the ovals with the Stitched Shape Framelits.

This is a quick and easy way to make a pumpkin. Want a large pumpkin? Use large ovals. Small pumpkin? Use small ovals. It’s up to you!

My Favorite Holiday ~ Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”.  Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays.

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.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Hello Fall Card - Peggy Noe - stampin up

My favorite holiday is … Fall. I know, it’s not “really” a holiday, but for me it is! I LOVE Fall. Here in San Diego County only a native can find Fall. We have quite a long late summer, most of our Fall days are really late summer days. It can be 80 or 90 degrees all the way through October. So when we do have a true Fall day here (coolish weather with a few leaves floating around), it’s a really big deal! It can be 69 degrees and we will all start up our fireplaces!!! It’s a holiday!

So today I made for you a true Fall card! I used a fun technique with Embossing Paste and have a little photo tutorial for you. The purple leaves on this card were made with Embossing Paste and then watercolored lightly with Fresh Fig ink using an Aqua Painter. Here’s how it’s done:

Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste Tutorial - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The stencil for the paste was created using a leaf die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, but you can use any die or punch to create a stencil! It’s a fun technique!

Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste Fall Card - Peggy Noe - stampin up

Here’s a close up of a finished leaf. It almost looks sparkly or sugary, doesn’t it? After I made the leaves on the card, I splattered the card with the same Fresh Fig ink and Aqua Painter (tap against a bone folder). The sunflowers were fussy cut from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. This paper is so beautiful, seriously. It’s one of my all-time favorites 🙂

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Hello Fall - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The sentiment used is from the Merry Cafe stamp set, and it expresses just how I feel! I also added a bit of Metallic Thread for bling! We have to have bling, right???

Oh boy, I just love it when we get a new catalog!! It’s time for the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and, as a demonstrator, I’ve been able to order new items early before the catalog goes live on September 1st. Now the Holiday Catalog features not only Christmas and New Year’s items, but fall and Thanksgiving and Halloween. It’s chock full of gorgeous stamps and papers and ribbons!

The first stamp set I wanted to play with is the Count My Blessings set. Today’s card uses my favorite stamp from the set ~ I just LOVE these flowers! Look at the way they are opening to show their little seed-like centers!

The colors here are Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Fresh Fig. I think these are going to be my go-to colors this fall. The flowers and leaves were colored in with a Blender Pen, putting a little more ink in some areas to create shading. A bow tied with Linen Thread finishes off the fall theme.

Grateful Wreath!

Grateful angled R

This is a card we made recently at my card classes and I thought you might like to see it.  I really liked this card because it gets me in the mood for fall and Christmas when I hang wreaths on my front door ! 🙂

Grateful envieThe stampers at the class really liked this card.  To make the wreath, I traced (very lightly in pencil) a circle from one of the Layering Circle Thinlits Dies (you could just use a glass).  Then I stamped around the circled with a little leafy stamp from the Love & Affection stamp set.

Grateful flat

I added a some tiny flowers from various stamp sets, and the sentiment from Endless Thanks.  Pretty easy, right?

October is Here with Vintage Bling!

Leaves flat L

October is here and I’m excited!  Fall is my favorite season!  Even though I live in Southern California, I still get excited about all the pretty, rich colors in the stores and “slightly” cooler weather. Leaves flat

Kraft paper is a great background for rich colors.  Here I’m using Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive.  I stamped the leaves from the Vintage Leaves set and then used my Blender Pen to blend in the colors.  I also added a bit of Crushed Curry. 🙂  Then I crumpled the leaves in my hands to give them some texture.

Leaves flat R

The frame was cut from Rich Razzleberry card stock using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, and it was laid over a gold Metallic Foil Doily and a Delicate White Doily.  I had some fun with the Rich Razzleberry Ribbon Trim:  a 1-1/2″ length of ribbon was cut at one end into small strips, leaving the other end alone to tuck under the sentiment.

Vintage Leaves and Bling!

Pumpkin L cu

Vintage Leaves is a must stamp set for fall.  The stamps are intricate, and pick up color beautifully, which is just what you want!

Pumpkin standing
For today’s card I also used the pretty pumpkin stamp, along with it’s cute little stem and leaves, from the Jar of Haunts set.  I stamped the pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie ink, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then watercolored it with the same ink.  If you haven’t tried watercoloring, you have go try it!!  It’s super easy with the Aqua Pen: just squeeze a bit of water out of the pen onto the paper, add a bit of ink, and have fun!

Pumpkin F down

The leaves were stamped directly onto the watercolor paper and then just blended with some water from the Aqua Pen.  Simple!

Pumpkin flat

The watercolored panel was mounted with dimensionals onto a piece of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (yeah bling!), tied with a bit of Linen Thread, and placed on the Very Vanilla card base.

Now go try some watercoloring!!  🙂

Rich Copper Foil Leaves for Fall!

Leaves flat envie

Copper Foil ~ it’s gorgeous and rich and shiny.  So Fall.  And, perfect for Fall leaves!  Fall doesn’t officially start until Thursday, but I’m so ready.  Here in San Diego County it’s been gently raining ~ this rarely happens!  So I’m really in a Fall mood!

Leaves cu 2


For today’s card, I cut the leaves from the Copper Foil using the Flourish Thinlits, and scattered them around on the card.  The flowers were stamped on the card using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.

Leaves flat angled R

I just love the Penned & Painted stamp set!  The flowers are whimsical and fun, and were just what I wanted for my card.  The flowers were colored wth Stampin’ Write Markers and Blender Pens.
