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?

This card also uses some of my favorite retiring 2017-2019 In Colors: Powder Pink and Fresh Fig. If you don’t have these colors yet, or you need to stock up before they retire on June 3rd, don’t wait to order! Here are the five retiring In Colors – click any color to see all the retiring items of that color!

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!

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!

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.

The background piece here is the new Purple Posy card stock, and it’s stamped all over with a Distinctive leaf stamp. The roses are stamped with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape using two of the three rose stamps, and then cut out with the coordinating dies.

The stitched label behind the sentiment strip is one of the dies from this bundle ~ isn’t it neat? I’ll be using it on a  lot of cards 🙂 The sentiments are both from this new set too. If you love roses, this is definitely going to be the bundle for you!
