Darling Lemon Lime Tags!

I’m really liking this new Lemon Lime Twist In Color. It’s so bright and fun — I just can’t stop using it!

Each month my local customers get handmade tags on their Stampin’ Up! bags. (My out-of-town customers get handmade thank you cards!) These are the tags I’m making for May! I would love for YOU to be my customer! Just place an order with me by CLICKING HERE. As soon as you place an order through me, you will become my customer and I will send you a personal handmade thank you card! (Please do not indicate “No Contact” or I won’t be able send you a card.)

The Scallop Tag Topper Punch I used on the top of these tags is one of my favorite punches. The scallops are so pretty and it automatically punches the little hole in the top of the tag! It’s a punch I’ll be keeping for a long time!

There’s a fabulous new stamp set in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and it’s called Crafting Forever. It’s perfect for crafters. I love the sentiment I used here on the tags…love the sentiment and love the curly font!

I’m not kidding, start making your Wish List  now if you haven’t already, because this new catalog has so many great new products!! Serious! Look at the gold scallops  across the top of the tag. That’s a sticker from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers!! How easy is it to just put a sticker on a tag or card? 🙂

If you need a new Annual Catalog, just email me at peggy@prettypapercards.com and I’ll send one to you right away. It has so many samples and ideas for making great projects ~ you’ll love it!

Thanks for stopping by today! Your comments mean so much. Please let me know what you think of today’s tags!!

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!

Fun Candy Cane Tags!

Candy Cane Tags 3 b

These are the last of the tags that we made at my card classes over the weekend.  These were really the most fun to make…they are easy to make and they are just SO cute!!  All of these tags were made using items from the Candy Cane Lane Suite in our Holiday Catalog.

Candy Cane Tag Washi

Do you recognize what this tag is made of??  It’s the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape!  I love it!  The stamps used on this tag are from Cookie Cutter Christmas and Candy Cane Christmas sets.

Candy Cane Tag house

This tag uses the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.  For the base of the tag I used Whisper White card stock and glued the dsp onto the base.  Then I punched the top of the tag with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The ADORABLE little gingerbread house is simply fussy cut from one of the sheets of dsp.  A small strip of Whisper White card stock was cut as a flag and stamped with the tiny “to and from” stamp.

Candy Cane Tag circle

This third tag was started in the same way as the previous tag.  I put some fun striped Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape on the bottom.  The sentiment is from the Work of Art stamp set.  Just stamp it on Whisper White card stock and punch with a circle punch.  Now, don’t you LOVE the peppermint candy?  It was stamped, fussy cut, and popped up on a dimensional!

Candy Cane Tags 3

Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine was strung through the openings in all the tags.  The real red and white striped twine looks perfect with the tags!

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  I hope you’ve enjoyed all of the holiday tags.  Now, go make some of your own…you’ll need them!

Vintage Circle Tag!

Round Orna R

This is one of my favorite tags that we made in my classes last weekend!  I love the vintage feel and the gold and deep red Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.

Round Orna slight L

Pretty Pointer:  If you are looking for a rich color combination for your holiday cards, this is the one.  Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla are gorgeous together, and when you add the gold it’s totally elegant!

Round Orna standing

To create this circular tag I used the Circle Layering Framelits along with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Don’t they layer together perfectly?  The inner circle is cut from one of the sheets of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog.

The above photo helps you see the gold embellishments that really bring this tag to life.  I just love that little golden pinecone!

Tags all

My November classes were all about TAGS!!  We’ve had lots of fun the past few days making 7 different holiday tags along with a fun box to hold them!

Tag Box Angled

To make the box, I followed a tutorial that I found on Splitcoast Stampers by Chris Slogar.  To make the box you use the Envelope Punch Board and a 6″ x 6″ piece of cardstock.

Tag Box Flat 2Over the next few days I’ll be posting the tags individually so you can see all the details.  Most of the tags were inspired by ones I saw on Pinterest and I just changed up a few things to make them my own 🙂

Please come back and see all the prettiness!!

Christmas Ornament?

Friend Hanger flat RI know, this doesn’t look like a regular Christmas ornament.  And, maybe it’s just a cute little thing to hang on a hook.  This is one of those things that you start and it keeps morphing as you go 🙂  I kept adding more and having fun, and I kind of like how it came out!

Friend Hanged flat

I started with some kraft paper that I embossed with a flower stamp from the set Awesomely Artistic.  White embossing on kraft paper looks so good!  Then I just started layering pretty things!

Friend Hanger L

Some of the things I layered first were:  (1) a light pink sheet of Fruit Stand dsp; (2) Touches of Texture stamped on Shimmery White that was first watercolored with a light wash of Emerald Envy and then punched with a circle punch; and (3) a delicate white doily.

Friend Hanger cu R

Some die cuts were added, and I gathered up some lace and adhered it with some copper spotted washi. Then I backed the whole thing with a layer of emerald envy card stock and another layer of Mint Macaron card stock.  Some holes were punched in the top left and right corners, and I added a loop of twine from my garage!

Friend Hanger standingSo, what do you think:  is it a Christmas ornament or a little thing to hang on a hook?  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Vacation Tag for a Doggie!!

Elie tag

Last week my husband and I went on a vacation ~ a cruise to Alaska!!  But it was very traumatic as we had to leave our sweet little yorkie, Elie.  She stayed over with my daughter for the week and, of course she needed a special bag to take all of her goodies with her.

Elie with her bag

I actually just used a pretty shopping bag, but I gave it a very special tag.  I think the rest of the family felt I went a bit overboard making her a special tag.  I had to! Most of the tag was made with Stampin’ Up! products, but I used a few other items, like press on letters spelling out her name 🙂

Cruise me and D last day

And guess what?  We all survived our separation/vacation!  Elie had a wonderful time with my daughter and we had a fabulous time on our cruise!  Above is a picture of us on our last day on the ship, it was a selfie, can you tell?

Tags of Blessing!

Bookmarks 2

Tags are fun!  I love making tags!  They are mini versions of cards so they are quicker to make–sort of 🙂  I have so much fun with these little things that sometimes I spend a bit too much time!  But, that’s not the case with today’s tags.  These were a snap to make!  See what I’m talking about below.

Bookmark 1

These little cuties were stamped with a flourish stamp from Timeless Textures, using Delightful Dijon ink.  That created an antique-looking background for the sentiment.  This sweet sentiment was then stamped with Watermelon Wonder ~ this color looks beautiful against the background.

Bookmark 1 angled

A little swipe of new Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape (available June 1st!!), a few sequins and a bright lace tie finish off the tags.  See what I meant?  Easy!  Quick!

Do you make tags?  If not, I really encourage you to give them a try…very fun!  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of tags.  I love to hear from you!

Perfect Plum Thanks!

Purple Tag 2

Tags, tags, tags ~ I love them!  What do you do with tags?  You can use them on gift packages or bags, on gift jars, they can be made longer and be bookmarks, they can become a part of a card…and so many other things!  I tie them on bags of Stampin’ Up! goodies ordered by my customers!

Purple Tag 3

These tags were made using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch on Perfect Plum card stock.  On top is layered a piece of Shimmery White card stock which has been stamped (Grateful Bunch) and watercolored (using an Aqua Pen).  It’s a very easy process.  Then a strip of Perfect Plum was stamped with a stamp from Another Thank You and the end of the strip trimmed into a little flagged end.  Some Gold Cording is used to tie the tag onto the customer’s bag.
