My New Favorite Stamp Set and FREE Tutorials!

Stampin' Up! Count Your Blessings Thinking of You Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Sometimes I start using a stamp set and the more I use it the more I love it. That’s what’s happened with this Count My Blessings set. I’ve been using it and it’s fabulous! I love the big font and the pretty flowers!

Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards Thinking of You - Peggy Noe - stampinupI mean, really, look at those gorgeous flowers! Maybe some of you know this type of flower, I’d sure like to know. For this card I stamped the flowers on vellum with Mememto Ink, and then I colored the back side of the vellum with the new Stampin’ Blends (available November 1st). Coloring the back of the vellum gives a softer look to the color.

The flowers were then placed over a piece of Shimmery White paper which had been watercolored with Melon Mambo ink and given a splatter of Melon Mambo ink all over.

One of the Best Cards You Can Send!

Birthday cards and congratulations cards are wonderful and we love to send them, but I believe the best card we can send is the card saying we care. ¬†That’s why I love to send cards like this one, to show care and bring a smile to others. And I think it’s the best card we can send!

This sentiment on today’s card is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, and it’s one I use frequently. I’m so happy that it’s carrying over into the new catalog ūüôā ¬†It has been stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock and punched out with a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

The pretty flowers are from a retiring set called Penned & Painted. It’s a great set of loose flowers and leaves. It’s a 2-step stamp set but I only used the outline stamps. Then I colored the insides of the flowers with our watercolor pencils and lightly brushed water over them with an aqua pen. ¬†The leaves are colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you like the Penned & Painted set, grab it right away as the retiring items are only while supplies last ūüôā

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!

Beautiful You!!

Today’s card uses the Beautiful You stamp set. ¬†This set is really something different. ¬†I love it!

These stamps are very artistic, they make beautiful scenes.  And on top of that, they are amazingly easy to stamp!  They give a clear crisp image.

It doesn’t take any time at all to make a great card! ¬†For this card I stamped the girl with the umbrella, then I stamped some designer series paper with the same stamp. ¬†I cut out the umbrella from the dsp and pieced it onto the umbrella on the girl. Super easy — and a big WOW!

I added a quick “sky” above the umbrella using the Sale-a-Bration set called Delicate Details (FREE with a $50 order!). ¬†Then I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Mint Macaron card stock and punched it out with a circle punch. ¬†Quick and done!

Oh, I forgot…I used Watercolor Pencils on her dress! ¬†It’s so much fun to color…so relaxing! ¬†And, making cards is relaxing, don’t you think? ¬†That’s something I really like about card making, it gives me a chance to get away into a world of colors and papers and lace (sometimes), and forget everything else. ¬†What about you? ¬†Why do you like card making? ¬†Let me know, I love your comments!
