Winter Wonderland Card with First Frost!

Stampin' Up! First Frost Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Today’s card is a fun, multi-layered card that is great for any winter occasion. It uses the First Frost stamp set – one of my very favorites! 

The colors on this card are luscious and soft…Seaside Spray, Whisper White, and Soft Sea Foam, with a bit of Vellum ~ a beautiful wintery combination!

The base of the card is Whisper White card stock. The next layer, moving up, is Seaside Spray card stock which has been distressed on all sides (use your fingernail or edge of your scissors). Then there is a piece of Vellum that has been embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

A narrow piece of Whisper White card stock has been embossed with a combination of White Embossing Paste,  Seaside Spray ink, and some Ice Stampin’ Glitter. All three of these were mixed together and then applied to the card stock over a polka dot Basic Pattern Decorative Mask. These masks are such fun to use and add an interesting element to your cards 🙂 That layer is tucked under another piece of Whisper White card stock that has been stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink using some of the leaf stamps in the set.

The gorgeous Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon was tied around that last layer with a bow and the flowers and leaves were tucked all around and adhered with Multipurpose Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves were tipped with a bit of Shimmery Crystal Effects and then dusted with Ice Stampin’ Glitter. Look very close to see all the glitter and bling!

An Apple Harvest Card!

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Hellos - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Apples are SO fall ~ I just love when I see the big bins full of apples in the store! And I love that Stampin’ Up! has an Apple Builder Punch and the Harvest Hellos stamp set!

Stampin' Up! Apple Seeds Harvest Hellos - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

You’ve seen the pumpkin cards I’ve made using this bundle, but this is the first time I’ve made apples. The stamp set comes with a full apple stamp, a slice of apple stamp, and a stamp with apple seeds. How cute is that? For today’s card I’ve used Crumb Cake card stock for the card base, with a piece of Cajun Craze card stock barely showing out from behind another piece of Crumb Cake.

The apple and the apple slice use So Saffron card stock and they are colored with the Light Real Red and the Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink on So Saffron card stock and cut out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Fall Sunflower Nametags!

Stampin' Up! Pretty Peacock Sunflowers - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Do you ever need something a little different? Well I needed to make some name tags for the ladies in my Bible study. So it occurred to me that cards that stand up horizontally like tents would make great name tags to put on tables in front of each person 🙂

Stampin' Up! Sunflower Daisy Punch - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Begin with a Whisper White card base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2,” scored at 4-1/4.” Adhere a piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper cut to 4″ x 5-1/4.” For these name tags I used only the papers with Pretty Peacock sides, as I’m just loving this color right now! You can see all the beautiful patterns below. The reverse of these papers are fall patterns of other colors.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Peacock Sunflowers - Peggy Noe - stampinup

To create the sunflowers, punch two daisies from Petal Pink card stock with the Daisy Punch. Gently curl the ends of the daisy petals using a bone folder. Then adhere the two daisies together in the center using Multipurpose Glue, alternating the petals. With the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, punch the sunflower center from Pretty Peacock card stock. Adhere to the top of the daisies using Multipurpose Glue. Then adhere the entire sunflower to the lower left side of the card using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The names on the tags were made with a label maker. Each sticky label was the laid on a 1-1/8″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White card stock and that was then flagged at one end with the Banner Triple Punch. The names were then tucked under the edges of the sunflowers and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

This design also makes a very nice card to send or give someone. It’s so versatile that you could stamp any sentiment on some Whisper White card stock and tuck it under an edge of the sunflower as I did 🙂 I’d love to hear YOUR ideas for this card!

NEW VIDEO: Lots of Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes!

Stampin' Up! Mini Curvy Keepsakes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s project is Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes ~ halloween treat boxes, fall treat boxes, holiday treat boxes! And wow are they cute! I’ve made a video showing you exactly how to create these cuties 🙂

Each of these little minis was decorated differently, but all use the same basic die for the box. Below is a closeup of the fancy holiday one. This box uses a 6″ x 6″ piece of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, some Leaf Ribbon, and Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red ink, and cut out with one of the little stitched dies in the set.

The Halloween Mini Curvy Keepsake Box below was made using a 6″ x 6″ piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock, and stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on all four sides with the jack-o-lantern stamp from the Harvest Hellos stamp set.

And below is the classy fall box created with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on a piece of Grapefruit Grove card stock and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. Be sure to watch the video to learn the trick of how to make such a small punched piece! The ribbon at the top is Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain.

It’s The Sentiment That Counts Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of our projects.  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! Wild Rose Blessed - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This sentiment “Blessed” is one of my all-time favorite sentiments! It conveys so much, but mostly it’s what I like to say to people: “You are blessed!” If you are going through hard times, if you are celebrating a birthday, or a milestone, this word can reassure and encourage you. And that’s what I want my cards to do! 

Stampin' Up! Blessed Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This great sentiment is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set ~ it’s a fabulous set! The background for the sentiment was heat embossed on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with white embossing powder using the large leaf stamp from the Gather Together stamp set. Then an Aqua Painter was used to apply Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze ink across the paper. Some Mint Macaron ink was then splattered on the paper. To learn how to use splattering, please see my YouTube Video HERE.

A large bow was made using two pieces of Cajun Craze Linen Thread that were each shredded a bit, and the tails of the bow were left long. The sentiment was stamped in Mint Macaron ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. Then it was torn around the edges and adhered over the tails of the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Iridescent Sequins were added for some bling 🙂
