4th of July ~ 3D Heart!

Stampin' Up! 4th of July Heart Banner - prettypapercards - stampinup

Today’s project is a darling 4th of July 3D Heart. It’s a fun decor item for this time of year; and, it’s easy to make! I was inspired by a bigger wood and felt piece made by Michelle at TealandOrange. She has an Etsy store where she sells her fabulous products. You can also find her on Instagram @tealandorangehandmade. When I saw her 4th of July heart I fell in love with it and had to make one with paper!!

Stampin' Up! 4th of July Banner - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The entire project uses the Woven Threads designer series paper. Instead of the traditional red, white and blue 4th of July colors, I’ve used Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, and Pretty Peacock. These are the colors in the dsp and I was so surprised at how much they appear like red, white and blue! The heart was cut with the Be Mine Stitched Dies. The flowers are all punched with the new Medium Daisy Punch. For the tiny flowers I simply cut down the petals all around. The little heart centers were cut using a multi-heart die from that same die set.

The ribbons and papers hanging from the heart are all 1/2″ x 4-1/2″ strips. The ribbon is Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon, and the papers are various pieces of the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.

Now you know I had to try this cutie on my wreath! I love to redecorate my wreath for various seasons 🙂 But I’ve only made one heart so far, so the wreath looks a bit bare. When I have time I hope to make more hearts so the wreath is balanced!

Pals Blog Hop: Anything With Wings!

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Bird Box - prettypapercards - stampinup

My “winged” project is a sweet little box and a tag or box topper, depending on your preference! The box was created with the new Perfect Parcel Dies – and I almost missed these in the catalog! Oh my gosh I love this little box!

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Bird Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The box was made using two 6″ x 8″ pieces of Terracotta Tile card stock and one of the dies. There is one die which creates the box and you run both pieces of cardstock through the Big Shot separately, so that the score lines show through very clearly.

The box topper is cut to the size of the box, 4″ x 2.” It slides right on top of the box to give it a pretty top. The box and the topper are created with Terracotta Tile card stock and covered with the new Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. This designer series paper includes all of the new 2019-2020 In Colors.

If you prefer to make a tag, use a 4-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Terracotta Tile card stock punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

The new Scalloped Lace Trim was added around all sides of the box and affixed with tiny dots of multipurpose glue. This is new lace trim and I might just use it on everything!! 🙂 The box itself is tied up with a pretty bow of Call Me Clover 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Thanks Box - prettypapercards - stampinup

Both the tag and the box topper are decorated with some Call Me Clover Leaf Ribbon. The Well Written Dies have this tiny bird die – he’s so darling! I cut him out from Seaside Spray cardstock. I also used the dies to cut the “thanks” sentiment out of Terracotta Tile card stock. A few sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment added a bit of bling!

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 🙂

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!

Let’s Make a Banner!

Stampin' Up! Mosaic Mood Bird Banner - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Banners are easy and fun to make. I like to make smaller banners, not big ones, just sweet little banners to hang in my craft room 🙂 And today’s banner highlights some pretty new designer series papers that I’m so excited to show you!

Stampin' Up! Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Each paper on the banner was cut with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, that’s what makes this so easy!. At the bottom of each rectangle, a piece of lace was adhered to the back so it peeks out on the front giving it a bit of a shabby chic look 🙂 The rectangle above, the first rectangle on the left of the banner, was cut from the new Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper. Aren’t the mosaic roses beautiful? The paper also has some pretty butterflies. I cut one out and used a glue dot to adhere to the rectangle. A bow was tied with some brand new Petal Pink ribbon. All of these items will be available in the new annual catalog on June 4.

The next three rectangles were cut from the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The birds on these papers are just adorable! The rectangle below shows the back of one of the bird pieces. It’s Petal Pink with little white dots. The daisy was punched out from both Petal Pink card stock and Whisper White card stock using the Daisy Punch.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch - Peggy Noe - stampinup

A hole was punched in the top center of each rectangle and some Whisper White Baker’s Twine was slipped through the hole and used to tie the rectangles onto the banner’s ribbon. The banner is held together with a piece of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon which has been intwined with some fun Leaf Ribbon. It really carries on the theme of birds and flowers and leaves!

The rectangle below is made from more of the Bird Ballad paper. I like this piece with all the bird cages. This is topped with a bird punched from the same paper using the Starburst Punch.

Make an Easy Spring Wreath!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you sometimes put a wreath on your door or inside your home? I do, I love wreaths and have one outside on my front door and one inside on a barn door in my craft room. I like to change the decorations on  the wreath in my craft room often. especially with the seasons!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Flower Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I used the gorgeous Painted Seasons stamp set (FREE with a $100 order!) and coordinating framelits to cut out flowers and leaves and put them on my wreath! I really don’t want to glue the flowers onto the wreath, because soon I’m going to want to change it again 🙂 So I used little clothespins to attach the flowers.

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Spring Wreath - prettypapercards - stampinup

But I have a question for you…I tried arranging the flowers two ways, one where I spread the flowers arbitrarily around the wreath and the other where I clustered them together on the side of the wreath. Which do you like better?

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.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Banner - Peggy Noe - stampinup

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??)
