Gold and Sugarplum Thank You!

Sweet Sugarplum is one of my favorite colors!  I love the name AND the color!  For today’s card I’ve paired it with Dapper Denim and gold…oooh!

What is that bit of gold in the lace?  Well, I was playing around and I layered some Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim with tiny pieces of a Delicate White Doily.  I adhered them to the white panel using Fast Fuse and a few dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I allowed the adhesive to come through the open areas of the lace and doily.

Then I poured Gold Glitter over them and pressed the glitter into the lace and doily.  When I brushed off the glitter, it was stuck in the groove and gave it a fabulous sparkle!!

You should give it a try ~ It’s not only fun to play with 🙂 but gives your card a super-neat look!

Well, this isn’t my swap card (are you kidding, I can’t show you my card before the conference!), but it is a card I’ve been wanting to show you.  It’s made using the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  It’s like coloring paper for adult and, it sure makes a pretty card!

St. Patrick’s Day Thank You!

Happy St. Patty’s Day!  We are going for the green today with this card and lots of layers do the trick!

The two greens used here are the fabulous Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy ~ wow do they go well together!  Now one thing to know about Mint Macaron…no, actually two things!!  (1) It’s the prettiest mint green you’ve ever seen and, (2) it’s only available through May 31st, or while supplies last!  Really, if you love this color like I do, get your paper and ink now before they are gone!

The background behind the sentiment was created with a sweet little stamp from the Sale-a-Bration set called Make a Medallion.  I stamped it all over the piece of Whisper White using Mint Macaron ink.  I really like the way it turned out 🙂

The sentiment is another Sale-a-Bration set called So Very Much.  It’s a beautiful large font and yet the lines are thin.  It really makes a statement -and a quick card!

Easy Birthday Blast Card!

Birthdays are so special and, if you’re like me you want to give a really special card.  Well, I think this is a pretty special card 🙂

The Star Blast Edgelits (part of the Birthday Blast Bundle) are FABULOUS!  Look at all that detail!  And this card is really a snap to make ~ seriously!

I cut out the star blast with the edgelits and used the stars that popped out to decorate the top of the card. The sentiment is actually from the Big on Birthdays stamp set.  I really like the way this sentiment looks on the base of the star blast.

A Lace Doily was slipped under the sentiment piece and then I tied a few pieces of Linen Thread around the Whisper White card stock.

This Bundle is one you can have on hand for a long time.  It’s going to be one of my go-to birthday bundles!

And, this is such a great time to make this Bundle part of your collection!  Why?  Because it’s Sale-a-Bration, the best sale of the year!  With every qualifying order you receive one special item FREE from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogs below!

The Remarkable Inkbig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “Sale-A-Bration”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Pretty Paper Cards,  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 at Pretty Paper Cards.

I’m so happy to be taking part in today’s blog hop!  To celebrate our theme, my card today has LOTS of Sale-a-Bration items!  Just for fun I tried to get in as many as I could.  Can you spot them all?

Well, the flowers are from the Avant Garden stamp set.  I stamped three on the Whisper White panel, and then stamped four on another sheet and fussy cut them out to adhere on top of the other flowers.

I gave the flowers little stamen centers using the Botanical Builders Framelits and Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.  I had to get in the fabulous Glimmer Paper!

The lace at the top is stamped from the Delicate Details stamp set.  Don’t you just love lace?  I do, and I love that I can add it anywhere on my card using the stamps in this set!

The happy birthday banner is from the Any Occasion stamp set.  This set is totally fun!  You get the “clothes line” stamp with lots of words and phrases  to hang on the clothes line 🙂

So, I count four different Sale-a-Bration items, what about you?  Did you catch them all?  Which items do you already have?  Remember, these Sale-a-Bration items are only available through March 31st, so get them while you can!!

Go With Happiness! (GDP077)

Today’s card is a fun watercolor for the Global Design Project Challenge.  It’s a color challenge and below you can see the colors we are to use.

For my free choice color I picked Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper (love!).  It’s a bit hard in the photo to tell the difference between the Bermuda Bay flowers and the Mint Macaron Glimmer leaves, but look close and you’ll see it!

The pretty flower is from the So in Love stamp set and it’s heat embossed in white and then watercolored in detail using the Peekaboo Peach ink.  Here’s a close up:

The new little thing I did on this card is to add what looks like little water droplets.  They are made using the Fine Tip Glue Pen and just leaving little drops to dry.  I’d seen this technique elsewhere and wanted to try it.  I kind of like it, what do you think?

The sweet sentiments on the inside and outside of the card are from the Swan Lake stamp set.  I like sets with coordinating sentiments…they do all the work for you, right?

 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’d love it if you would leave me a comment ~ I like comments 🙂  And please pop over to see what others have done at the Global Design Project.

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!

Happy Easter Message!

You know, Easter is a happy message!  I like it that the stamp set I used for this card is called “Easter Message” and this is a happy Easter card!

It’s a beautiful stamp set ~ I love these lilies!  This was an easy card to make using a few ink pads and a blender pen.  The lilies were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink to start.  Then I just filled them in by coloring using the blender pen and picking up a little ink from the lid of the ink pads.

And, of course, I had to add a bit of the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper!  Don’t forget, the Assorted Glimmer Paper Pack is FREE through March 31st with a $50 order!  Don’t miss out, order soon!

Do you stamp a little something on your envelope?  I like to.  It just gives a little hint of what’s inside 🙂  If we are sending a special handmade greeting card, I just think it’s nice to add a little something on the envelope.  For today’s card I stamped a few lilies on the envelope corner.
