Purple Hearts ~ for YOU!

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Why a purple Valentine? Well, purple is the color of the year for 2018 and I’ve been waiting for just the right card to use it. AND, I want to send it to one of YOU!

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness - Prettypapercards - stampinup

These hearts were created with the Heart Happiness stamp set. It’s a great set – full of hearts of all sizes and patterns!

Heart Happiness
15 Photopolymer Stamps
Item No. 145769  $17

This stamp set is great because each heart is so different. It gives you lots of options, I love that! For this card I’ve used two of the hearts in the set. The striped heart is stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink, and the sweet floral border heart is stamped with the same ink, but on a background watercolored with Wisteria Wonder ink and splattered with Elegant Eggplant ink.

The sentiment I’ve used is from the Petal Palette stamp set (CLICK HERE to view). This set has some great sentiments in great fonts. What I like about this sentiment is that it works for any type of card. It can be a Valentine card for a friend, or just any type of card for a friend…or a loved one, husband or boyfriend.

My January Favorite Bundle Offer!!

I’m very excited to share with you
My January Favorite Bundle!

January is the time to make Valentines! And my favorite Bundle this month is the Sure Do Love You Bundle! Why? Well, for several reasons:

  • I LOVE the trendy slender-shaped heart stamp and coordinating die.
  • I LOVE the treat box die (the photo on the left shows the front of the box). It’s slim, like a Valentine candy heart box.
  • I LOVE the other heart and banner stamps and dies because they can be used year round.

WHY a Bundle? Well, the stamp set is wonderful, but with the coordinating framelits it’s REALLY WONDERFUL! I mean, who wants to fussy cut the hearts and banner? It’s SO much easier with the framelits. AND, with the framelits you get the adorable valentine box! Who can resist that?

Amazing Congratulations Card!

Stampin' Up! Amazing Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you know someone who needs congratulations? Someone who needs to hear a “well done”? Well, this is the perfect card! I made this card for a member of my team who has done a fabulous job, and I’m so glad I had these Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. I got them FREE with my recent order, and I just love them!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Thinlits - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For this card, I used a sheet of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Those little dots you see are silver foil and are a part of the beautiful paper, and wow are they pretty! I used some Bermuda Bay card stock for the “amazing” sentiment, and some star sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment to add more bling! Aren’t these colors gorgeous together? The paper color is Calypso Coral and the Bermuda Bay (blue) looks striking against it.


Celebrate You Thinlits – Item No. 146840

These Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are a Level 2 FREE gift with an order of $100 or more before shipping and tax during Sale-A-Bration. These die will be available after Sale-a-Bration but they will not be free 🙂

Easy DIY Valentine Wreath!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you like decorating your home? I love decorating the inside of my home, and my front porch. I usually keep a wreath on my front door, and for the past year or so I’ve had a wreath with leaves and little soft white buds. They look like tiny cotton buds. For each season I’ve added some special trim to my wreath. 

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Valentine Banner - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For Valentine’s Day I decided to hang a small heart banner across the center opening of the wreath. I cut the hearts using the large heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, and I used the fabulous Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts.

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Box Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I cut out several hearts (one is from plain Melon Mambo card stock) and clipped them onto some of the pretty Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim with Gold Library Clips. Bling bling!! I simply tied the ends of the trim onto branches of the wreath. Easy!!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Banner Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

When we moved into our home we painted our front door black. It was a bold move but now I’m so glad we did it. It looks good, and everything I hang on my door looks great against the black!

Stampin' Up! Pals Blog Hop Sure Do Love You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

From the heart…it just seems that the best thing you can say to another person – from your heart – is “you are loved.” And that’s what today’s card is all about. You can say this to a friend, to a lover, to a child, these are wonderful words for anyone to receive.Stampin' Up! Pals Blog Hop Celebrate You - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The words on this card were created with a die from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration) which created the Real Red “YOU,” and the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set which was used to stamp the words “ARE LOVED.”

Stampin' Up! Pals Blog Hop Valentine - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The words created with the Labeler Alphabet stamps are set on a heart from the Sure Do Love You stamp set. And of course for a valentine you have to have a doily!! This is a Metallic Foil Doily turned upside down so that it’s a white doily!

Stampin' Up! Blog Hop Valentine - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It’s all set on a background watercolored with Pool Party ink and tied with a sweet bow of Silver Baker’s Twine!
