Sparkles Galore!

Hi there!  Hope you are having a great week! I’ve been having fun making these pretty cards with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Each card uses a different one of the 2016-18 In Colors. I love seeing them all together, they are so springy!

This sentiment from the Rose Garden stamp set was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and punched with the 2″ Circle Punch. Then it was layered on top of some of the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and poof, a gorgeous card!

The wonderful thing about these cards is that most of the items used to make them are now FREE (individually) with your $50 order! Sale-a-Bration is almost over and I want you to be able to take advantage of all the great FREE items!  Here are the items from this card that you can get FREE (each one is FREE with a $50 order, before tax and shipping):

Coloring Inside the Lines!

Hi there!  How are you today?  Are you having a nice weekend?  I’ve been busy getting ready for On Stage San Diego.  This is a regional Stampin’ Up! Conference which is going to be held right here in San Diego on April 8th!  I’m getting super excited!

This weekend I’m making “swaps” for the event.  Cardmakers like cards, right?  Well when we get together we like to exchange cards and that’s called “swapping”!  So I’ve been designing and making my swap cards~fun!

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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!

Pretty Pocket Card Kit!

Are these cards cute or what?  And they are just what we need right now with spring just a few days away, right?

They are little pockets and the cards pull up so you write a little something on the inside 🙂

Everything you need comes in the kit.  It’s super easy to put together and took me, seriously, no more than 15 minutes to make 8 adorable cards!

Here’s the best part:  this whole kit is FREE!  Yes, really, FREE, with a $50 order!  I’ve already sent several of these cuties to friends.  The kit comes with full-sized envelopes so you just pop the card in an envelope and it’s ready to go!!

One reason I’m posting these today is because we are close to the end of Sale-a-Bration and we aren’t sure how long the Sale-a-Bration items will last.  If you like this kit, get it asap.  I don’t want you to miss out!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Pretty Thank You Tags!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

When my customers place an order with me they always get something special and handmade from me. This month they are receiving a pretty thank you tag like the ones above!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

These tags are CASE’d from a sample I saw in a Stampin’ Up! magazine.  As demonstrators we receive a bi-monthly magazine with ideas for great creations and I saw this tag and loved it.  I changed it up just a bit and used a different washi tape.

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

The pretty flowers are from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Avant Garden.  You may notice that one of the tags is lighter than the other one.  That’s because I stamped the flowers in Archival Black ink on one tag, and used Pear Pizzaz ink on the other one.  It really gives a different look, doesn’t it?  Then I colored in the flowers with some Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum ink.

So, don’t you love these flowers?  Well, the only way to get this stamp set is by placing a $50 order with Stampin’ Up!  And, here’s the best part, when you place that order, the Avant Garden stamp set is…FREE! Yes, totally FREE!  That’s the wonderful thing about Sale-a-Bration:  FREE PRODUCTS!

If you want this stamp set, just CLICK HERE to go straight to my store, choose $50 in fabulous products (before shipping and taxes), and add this item (Number 143272) to your order.  It will be FREE!!

May I suggest for your order:  the 2″ Circle Punch (Item No. 133782) for $18, the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (Item No. 133324) for $23, Archival Basic Black Ink (Item No. 140931) for $7, and the Floral Bouquet Designer Washi Tape (Item No. 141664) for $5.  That adds up to $53 !!!  Add the Avant Garden set FOR FREE!! and you’re good to go!

Thank you for stopping by today, and have fun shopping!

Pals Blog Hop: Case the Catty!

2017badge-flamingo

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for February 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are CASE’ing a project shown in a current Stampin’ Up! catalog. After all, with the Annual, Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs available right now, there is much inspiration from which to choose. 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 may see all the projects.

Hop 3 best

What does “CASE the catty” mean anyway?  It means to make any project shown in any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs. I chose to used the Any Occasion stamp set and make a few of the cards shown in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog!  This darling stamp set is on pages 14 and 15 of the Sale-a-Bration Catalog (see the catalog at the end of this post!).  I cased (copied) one of the cards and then created a few cards which are similar to the ones shown in the photo.

Now, there are several fabulous things about this stamp set.  The first fabulous thing is that it’s F-R-E-E!! Yes, FREE with a $50 purchase!  Who can beat that?

Hop 3 clothespins

The second fabulous thing about this set is that is SO cute!  Oh my goodness, it’s darling!  The stamps are small and can fit anywhere (and small is cute, right?).  But also, I mean just look at the tiny gift box and bow stamps on the birthday card in the middle above.  And check out the little tassels on the thank you card.  Super cuteness!!

Hop Pink standing

And what do you think of the tiny lace on the baby card above?  It’s actually two stamps, the swoopy line is one stamp and the lace is another stamp!

Hop 3 standing row

And third, this set is crazy versatile!  I’ve counted, and there are at least 7 types of cards that you could make from this one stamp set.  Wow!  20 different stamps come in the set and you just mix and match ~ how great is that?

Hop tu flat

The products used on these cards are listed for you below, along with a link to the Sale-a-Bration Catalog so you can browse!

Coloring Book Flower!

Lines R cu

This flower is amazing!!  It’s from a sheet of designer series paper called “Inside The Lines,” and it’s another one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration items!

Lines L

What am I talking about?  This designer series paper is like a coloring book!  There are four different beautiful designs in the set.  For today’s card I cut out a bloom from one of the sheets and colored it with a Blender Pen and several different colors of ink.  Isn’t it pretty?  This paper would also be great as a background paper, it has so many possibilities!

143830G Inside Lines dsp

This card was easy to make.  Just a few pretty layers, a tiny sentiment, and a little splatter!  The yellow square was cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  This set of dies is classic, I use it all the time!

Lines Flat

You’ve seen me use this tiny sentiment before.  It’s from Thoughtful Banners.  It’s perfect for an understated card that just lets someone know you are thinking about them 🙂

See you back soon!
