All of the flowers and leaves you see were cut out with the Tropical Thinlits Dies. There are 8 fabulous dies in this set, including the leafy square piece at the front of the card.

Wonderful Healing Hugs!

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Card - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The Healing Hugs stamp set is special. It’s special because it has some stamps that are created in a new way… they’re called “Distinctive Stamps” and they’ve been created from a photograph. This gives them a realistic depth and intensity. Look closely at the rose, the detail is amazing. And the leaves are so realistic! I love roses, and I love this set!

Clear Mount Stamp Set Item No. 146530  $21.00

For this card I stamped the roses and leaves arbitrarily on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock. The colors are Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green, and they are truly luscious together! This is covered with a piece of Vellum cut to the same size.

Pretty Pointer:  Vellum laid over any stamped image diffuses the light and gives a very soft look. It’s a great way to change up a card or a portion of a card, and — it’s easy to do! Simply adhere the Vellum with a bit of adhesive placed below the area where another item will go. This will hide the adhesive. On this card the Vellum is attached to the rose panel with a bit of Tombow Multipurpose Glue placed underneath the area where the sentiment piece will go.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature Healing Hugs - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The fun sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and it’s stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock cut with a die from the Stitched Labels Framelits.

Tufted Praying for You Card!

Stampin' Up! Tufted Promenade - Prettypapercards - stampinup
Sometimes you just need a card that says “Praying.”  Some situations are difficult and the only thing you can say to someone is “I’m praying for you.” This card is perfect for such a situation.

For this card I’ve used the beautiful Tufted Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. What do you think? It’s unusual and soft…I really like it. It reminds me of a pillow 🙂  The flowers were fussy cut from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and three little pearls were placed in the center of each flower.

The sentiment here is from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set. It’s actually part of a larger sentiment which I stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I gently cut around the word I wanted (here “praying”) and affixed it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Pretty Pointer:  It’s easy to isolate one or two words from a sentiment stamp by stamping the entire stamp on a scrap piece of card stock and then cutting out just the words you want! Makes your stamps much more versatile!

Beautiful Promenade Photopolymer Stamp Set
Item No. 146842  $21

The measurements of this card base are 10″ x 4-1/4″ and it’s scored at 5-1/2.” You are left with the 1″ edge on the right where you stamp the leaves. The Pool Party panel was cut at 4-1/4″ x 4″ and then embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder. The leaves were stamped in Pool Party ink with the leaf stamp from this set. I then used a Blender Pen to blend the ink inside of each leaf.
