Fun Holiday Banner!

Stampin' Up! Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies - prettypapercards - stampinup

This adorable banner was on my blog back in September, but it’s so cute and I wanted to show it to you again before Christmas! It’s not hard to make and would be great anywhere in your home!

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Framelits - prettypapercards - stampinup

You can find this banner on page 8 of the Holiday Catalog. I liked it so much I wanted to make one for myself. You know, one of the best ways to learn stamping is to copy some of the projects that are shown in the catalog! The Stampin’ Up! designers create some absolutely amazing things and I always learn when I “try” to copy their work!

Stampin' Up! Joy Banner - Prettypapercards - stampinup

You can make this easy banner by cutting strips of designer series paper 2-1/2″ wide x 4″ long. Then you just decorate your little strips! The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper has some really pretty plaids that are great for this banner.

The letters were cut with the Large Letters Framelits. If you don’t have these dies, I highly recommend you get them ~ they are so useful! 

Large Letters Framelits

I’ve used these for birthdays and anniversaries ~ and banners!

Stampin' Up! Joy Banner - Peggy Noe - stampinup

My favorite thing about these cute little rectangles is the adorable doilies at the top of each piece. They are created using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies! This die set has a doily in it ~ love, love!! I got this die set JUST because of the doily die!! (Is that bad??)

And because these dies are not carrying over after December 31, right now they are 25% OFF!! The discounted price is $23.25 ~ if you want them, this is the time, before they are gone completely!

These dies are part of the Year-End Closeout! CLICK HERE to see the list of items that will retire and not be returning. Some are discounted and some are not – but ALL are retiring, so get what you want while supplies last!

Anything But a Card – Pals November Bog Hop!

Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.

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! Snowfall Thinlits Holidays - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Well we definitely have to make a list of the gifts, and then we need pretty packaging! Both of these projects use the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. The stripes are so festive. They remind me of candy canes.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The list is easy to create with an 8-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of the Dashing Along paper. On top of that is an 8″ x 4″ piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. This gives it support and a nice contrast. This is the base for the list. At the top of the Cherry Cobbler piece is a large Sparkle Glimmer Paper snowflake. I love this giant snowflake! It was cut using a die from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright - Peggy Noe - stampinup
A 1″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock was stamped with the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and the little bulbs were colored in with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and Garden Green ink using a Blender Pen. The lined paper I used was taken from a pad of paper I just had around the house 🙂 I cut it down to fit.

Stampin' Up! Snowfall Thinlits Gift - Prettypapercards - stampinup

This adorable gift box is one of our Baker’s Boxes. I love these boxes because they are fairly large and fit a nice bag of homemade cookies. I decorated mine using the same Dashing Along Designer Series Paper. I measured each side panel and top panel and just cut a piece of the paper a little shorter. The Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer was invaluable!

Stampin' Up! Snowfall Thinlits Gift - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The box was wrapped with Real Red 3/8″ Mixed Satin Ribbon. As a topper I cut four (4) of the large snowflakes, folded each in half, and attached them together at the base with Glue Dots. Then I attached them to the top of the box with Glue Dots.

You can purchase all the products I used from my Product List below.

August Blog Hop ~ Cut It Out!

Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out, so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

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! Nametags - Peggy Noe - stampinup

All of our cutting tools are fabulous and I use them all the time! Today’s “cuts” form a darling name badge that ties around the neck. When you need name tags, why not make your own, right? Stampin' Up! Stitched Seasons Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I’m calling these name badges as they tie around the neck rather than pinning or clipping on. The base of the badges is a 2″ circle punched out of Soft Sea Foam card stock. Using the Stitched Label Framelits I’ve cut out a lacy label from Whisper White card stock. Then I put the names on the labels using the fun Make a Difference stamp set. This set has stamps for the entire alphabet, both lower and upper case, in a nice loose calligraphy font. It’s super easy to create the names – the letters sit next to each other so smoothly. It’s hard to make a mistake!

Stampin' Up! Nametags - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Then I cut out a sweet bow from Flirty Flamingo card stock using the new Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies (only available through August 31st). I just love this little bow! Some fun Powder Pink Ruffled Ribbon was folded in half, slipped between the layers, and then everything was stapled together.

Stampin' Up! Vases Builder Punch - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For some of the name badges I added tiny tulips punched out with the Vases Builder Punch :- ) There’s no end to what you can create with the Stampin’ Up! cutting products.

Pretty Spring Gift Bag!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Bag - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup
Sometimes I just want to create something different! The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is SO totally gorgeous that it has to be used as much as possible. Today I decided to make a sweet gift bag using an entire 12″ x 12″ sheet of this pretty paper and my trust Envelope Punch Board!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Bag - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The pattern for the bag is from Sam Donald (Pootles) and can be found here. Her tutorial is so good there is no need for me to reinvent it 🙂 It’s a darling fold-over bag and looks so fabulous made in this designer paper.

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Gift Bag - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

To decorate the front of the bag I created a daisy using the Daisy Punch and the backside of the designer paper. Each side of this paper is a gorgeous hand-drawn design and one side has a pearlescent finish. The daisy is placed on a pearlized doily and I’ve added some leaves punched using Lemon Lime Twist card stock. It’s truly easy to create with these coordinated products!

Quick and Easy Framed Art Gift!

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Project - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Framed art makes a beautiful gift, and the Hold on to Hope stamp set makes beautiful framed art!! Today’s project is something you can put together quick. It’s easy but looks like you’ve spent hours creating it! 

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Home Project - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This is such a nice verse from the Hold on to Hope set – it’s perfect to feature in a frame. Stamping the verse in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink makes it crisp and clear. After stamping, the verse was cut with a die from the Layering Circles Framelits and then layered on a Tea Lace Doily.

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Project - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The background behind the verse is one of the sheets of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s a lovely understated floral pattern. Do you see the sweet little butterfly? It’s a stamp in the set and has a tiny matching framelit! 🙂

To finish it off, place it in a cream frame and tie it all up with some pretty Stampin’ Up! ribbons and a tag! The tag was cut using a die from the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies. I added a bit of the designer series paper and another stamp from the Hold on to Hope set.

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Framed Verse - Peggy Noe - stampinup

You Are Loved Spring Gable Box!

_Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

So I just can’t stop having fun with these Silver Gable Boxes! They are great for spring get togethers! Just fill them with a few different candies and decorate the outside of the box.

_Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Treat Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I covered the sides of the Silver Gable Boxes with 2″ strips of the Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper (FREE until March 31st with your $50 order!). Some pretty Smokey Slate 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon were used together to tie a bow on the top of each box. _Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

A pretty silver foil butterfly was cut using the Bold Butterfly Framelits. Mini Glue Dots were used to adhere the butterfly to the knot part of the bow. It looks like the butterfly is landing right on the bow 🙂  The sentiment is from the new Blossoming Basket stamp set (FREE with a $100 order now through March 31st). It was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock, then the end was clipped with scissors to form a flagged end. The sentiment strip was then attached to one of the tails of the bow with a mini clothes pin!
