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!

End of Summer Thank You Cards!

The last few days of August…the summer is over and September officially starts the fall season. It seems like the perfect time to make cards with this “peachy” Whole Lot of Lovely Designers Series Paper!

Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty Thank You - Peggy Noe - Stampinup

I have some thank you notes to send to some special friends and this sentiment from the Label Me Pretty stamp set seemed just right. This is such a nice stamp set and it’s even better because it has a coordinating punch. That combination makes creating a card a snap! The Pretty Label Punch is just that, pretty!  And both the stamp set and the punch come together in a bundle at a 10% discount! (That’s what I love about bundles!)

Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty Bundle Thank You Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Whole Lot of Lovely Thank You!

It’s Thursday and time for another fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I really love this challenge…you can choose which items you want to use on your creation as long as they make a tic tac toe! I’ve chosen the first row across: thank you, sequins, all things round.

The Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper is so pretty. The more I use it the more I love it. Look at these beautiful peaches! Really, all you need is this paper to make a great card! For a bit of interest I added a panel of vellum on the left.

Do you see that little bit of Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon? It adds such a nice touch. The sentiment is a stamp from the All Things Thanks set and is stamped on a piece of Shimmery White card stock that has been watercolored with a wash of Crushed Curry ink.

The fun peach on the front was just fussy cut from a small piece of the dsp. I LOVE this paper!!

Pretty Pointer:  Adding unexpected items to your card  gives interest and surprise. On this card, the ribbon and the cut out peach add surprise elements that appeal to the eye. These bring a “smile” when your friends and family open the envelope. I love knowing that they are smiling when they receive my card 🙂

Please pop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge page and see what the other designers have done with this challenge board! Better yet, enter your own card and join the fun!

Pink Brick Thank You Card!

Today’s card is fun and flirty with the beautiful Melon Mambo pink theme! Pink and white are always great together, and this hot pink is really a standout!

Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste is so versatile and easy to use. On today’s card I’ve embossed the left side using the paste and the brick mask. Then I went back in with an Aqua Pen and some of the Melon Mambo ink to color the bricks in various shades of pink. I then brushed the pen over the bricks diagonally to give a slight washed look.

I love embellishments and look for every opportunity to use them 🙂 For today’s card I layered a few pieces of Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon underneath the sentiment circle and then put a little wooden least sprig on top. Of course we still needed MORE embellishments so a few White Perfect Accents worked great!

It’s so much fun to create pretty cards using all of the amazing Stampin’ Up! products! I look forward every day to my time crafting, don’t you? Right now I’m back east on vacation and I’m missing stamping 🙂 But I’ll be back home in a few days crafting away!

Embossed Summer Daisies! (tttc003)

Today is Tic Tac Toe Challenge Day and we’ve got a great challenge board for you! This time I chose the first row across (at the top) but I added in a few other items from the board just for fun 🙂

For this card I tried something different with the embossing paste. We have the Decorative Masks to use with the paste, but I wanted some other patterns. I decided to use a punched piece of card stock, one that had a daisy punched out of it. And, it worked!

First I lightly watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with an Aqua Painter and some Daffodil Delight ink to give a little background color. When that was dry, I laid the punched card stock square over the watercolored piece and pressed some of the Embossing Paste into the punched area with the palette knife. I did that a few more times. Then I went back with the Aqua Painter and, without adding any water, just added a bit more ink and lightly painted the daisies. The paste dries a little rough, but that’s what it’s meant to do…add texture 🙂

These are my favorite summer colors: Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy. They just look so fresh! And this Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon is one of my new favorites – I was so happy to be able to use it on this card. This ribbon is super-easy to work with and ties great bows! A little vellum butterfly just adds to the summer theme.

So is your mind whirling about what shapes you could use with the embossing powder? Leave me a comment and let me know your ideas, I’d love to hear! And if you haven’t tried it, you absolutely must! It’s easier than you would think!

Spring Garden Thank You Tags!

The beautiful colors on these tags just make me think of a spring garden! They tags are bright and fresh and a little bit shabby chic. And they are full of new products! I made these tags for my customers this month. I love to tie a tag on their bags or slip a tag in the mail to those who order from my online store, Can you guess the new products used on these tags?

Alright, let’s look at a tag up close, from the bottom layer up:

The first/base layer is a 5″ x 2″ piece of Pool Party card stock punched at the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (couldn’t live without this punch!). The background stamp here is from a set called Background Bits and it’s a Host Set (to qualify to get this set you need to order $150 or more).

Next is a circle of Peekaboo Peach card stock punched with the new Starburst Punch and embossed with embossing paste using a Pattern Party Decorative Mask. As soon as I spread the embossing paste, and while the stencil/mask was still down, I used a sponge dauber and a bit of Berry Burst ink, lightly sponging the embossing paste. Then I removed the mask and voila ~ gorgeous!

A part of a Tea Lace Doily is gathered up and stapled to a strip of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. A single leaf of Lemon Lime Twist card stock and die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thilits is layered on top of a strip of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Then to top if all off, a piece of Pool Party card stock was punched with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch and the words “Thank You” were assembled with the Labeler Alphabet!

A bit of Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was used to tie a sweet little bow. The bow was adhered onto the tag with a Mini Glue Dot. White Baker’s Twine was looped through the hole at the top of the tag for tying.

The Labeler Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set
Item No. 141936

The Labeler Alphabet is a fabulous stamp set. It’s versatile, you can use it on any card and combine the letters to form the sentiment you want! For my tags I used Night of Navy ink to coordinate with the colors in the Naturally Eclectic dsp!
Place an order in my online store during the month of June and I will send you separately one of these Spring Garden Tags! And, for every order of $50 or more, if you use the monthly Host Code, you will receive from me a FREE gift of a package of new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals!
