Sneak Peek: Woven Heirlooms!

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads - prettypapercards - stampinup

Here’s a fun suite of products coming up in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, available June 4th. It’s called the Woven Threads Suite, and it’s just my style 🙂

This card also features the new In Colors. The card base is Seaside Spray, a lovely soft blue. On top of that is a piece of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. I like this paper because, to me, it’s a combination of Victorian patterns and distressed shabby chic. I really like this particular paper in the set 🙂

The stamp set is fun – with script sayings and distressed flourishes. For this card I’ve stamped the long flourish stamp in Seaside Spray on a piece of Whisper White card stock, and then I tore the stamped image out and placed it behind the sentiment. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on a stitched oval of Terracotta Tile card stock.

Behind the torn piece is a strip of Flax Ribbon, and that sits on a piece of Seaside Spray card stock cut with one of the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies (love, love!).

Beautiful Petal Promenade Congratulations!

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Petal Promenade has been one of my favorite designer series papers this past year. The petals, the flowers…they are gorgeous! Today’s card uses two sides of the same piece of designer paper. The Stitched Rectangle Dies were used to cut out the frame. The frame really sets off the flowers, doesn’t it?

3D Magnolias and a Video!

Stampin' Up! Magnolia Blossom Wreath - prettypapercards - stampinup

Magnolias are all over the new Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and the Magnolia Memory Dies actually create 3D magnolias! I’ve been having fun making lots of paper magnolias and adding them to a wreath that I have in my craft room. Would you like to know how to create these gorgeous flowers? Watch the Stampin’ Up! video below to find out how.

Below is a picture of the completed wreath. This is an inexpensive wreath I picked up at a big craft store. Every so often I change out the decor on the wreath. You may notice that I attach the flowers to the wreath with mini clothespins. That’s because I want to be able to take them off later and replace them with something else! I do try to hide the clothespins 🙂

The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle is going to be very popular. The new catalog goes live on June 4th, so as you see sneak peeks and previews, it would be a good idea to keep a list of what you want to order.

Here’s a Wish List for you to download and keep handy for June 4th. I’ll be showing you more sneak peeks over the next few weeks, so get ready!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Gatefold Sympathy Card for Lovely as a Tree :-(

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Sympathy Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

A sympathy card seems appropriate for this retiring stamp set, Lovely as a Tree. All of Stampin’ Up! has recently had a retirement party for this stamp set that’s been around for SO many years. And it’s only available for a few more weeks!

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Sympathy - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card is a gatefold card, the front is like a gate with the two sides folding inward to the center. The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock.Each side of the “gate” was topped with a piece of Petal Pink card stock. A tree from the stamp set has been stamped on two pieces of Shimmery White card stock, one for each side. The trees were each colored with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers and then adhered to the Petal Pink pieces.

A piece of Very Vanilla card stock was adhered to the center of the card, and this is what you see when you “open” the gates 🙂 The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch and attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets were added to the front of the card.
