Guest Designer: Star of Light and His Light Card!

Stampin' Up! His Light - prettypapercards - stampinup

I’m so happy to share this beautiful card with you today! It was created by my friend Bette Schroeder and she has so many wonderful details here – I want you to see them all!

Stampin' Up! His Light Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

The base of the card is an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Night of Navy card stock, scored at 4-1/4″. A piece of 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White card stock was torn close to one of the 5-1/4″ long edges, and then adhered to the card base. I just love this torn edge technique and you just might see me using it on some of my own cards in the future 🙂

She then artfully layered stamps from both stamp sets, using Night of Navy and Pool Party inks. I had to try my hand at creating Bette’s card ~ of course! And I found that using the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool really helped to get the “Rejoice” level with the other images.

Pals December Blog Hop ~ All That Sparkles & Shines!

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines.” Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both!

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Star of Light - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today I have for you a sparkly Christmas ornament!! Almost every part of this ornament sparkles and shimmers and glitters! Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Paper is at the heart of this creation. Can you identify the different glimmer papers?

Stampin' Up! Star of Light - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For a blog hop with this title you absolutely MUST use Sparkle Glimmer Paper, right? 🙂 That’s the white in the center of the ornament. And the pretty bow and pine branches were cut from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper in Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Ornament - Peggy Noe - Stampin' Up!

The ornament itself was cut from Real Red card stock using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies. Then some Frost White Shimmer Paint was painted all over the Real Red lacy front, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels were place all around the outer circle.

The sentiment was stamped on Shimmery White card stock with Merry Merlot ink. — Are you noticing all this shimmer?? This is a sweet ornament that you could hang anywhere during this season, or make a bunch and cover a whole tree!! 🙂

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s hoppers. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Romance Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

From the new Wonderful Romance stamp set I’ve used this large floral and leaf stamp. It’s so pretty I just had to watercolor it!! First I stamped it onto a piece of Shimmery White card stock using Sahara Sand ink. This creates very faint lines which give you the borders for watercoloring. (It’s called borderless watercoloring.)

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Romance - prettypapercards - stampinup

Using an Aqua Painter, I gently applied color and a bit of water to “color in” the stamped image. It was fun to use different shades of green to create depth. The colors are Granny Apple Green and Old Olive ink. The larger flowers are watercolored with Gorgeous Grape ink, and the tiny flowers in Petal Pink.

This stamp set has the cutest little stamp with tiny dots. I’ve stamped it all around the leaves and flowers ~ truthfully, I was having so much fun I just kept stamping those little cuties!!
