Sneak Peek Week: Wishing You Well and New Video!

Stampin' Up! Wishing You Well Card - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Today’s card is a subtle fall bouquet with a surprisingly beautiful bow! It’s another sneak peek from the new Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 5th. Included in this catalog are some very gorgeous fall items that you will love, like the Wishing You Well stamp set featured on today’s card.

I made a video for you showing lots of the new products from the catalog!

So what do you think of all those great goodies? Wonderful, right? Well definitely start your wish list 🙂

Now back to today’s card…isn’t this bow amazing? This stamp set is one of the new DistINKtive sets. The stamps are made in a special way; and you can see that in the bow here. I’ve never seen a stamped bow like this one, have you? It’s a showstopper!!

The colors used on this card are what I call an “array of fall.” Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry, and Crumb Cake. You can’t find a better combination for a fall look.

Stampin' Up! Just a Note Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This card is perfect for a sweet hello to a friend. One thing card making does for me is cause me to send more cards. I love to send and receive cards, but sometimes I get so busy. Let’s not allow ourselves to get so busy that we can’t take the time to send a note to a friend!

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.

A Little Elephant ~ and a Winner!

Stampin' Up! Little Elephant Card - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Happy Monday! Today I have for you the cutest little elephant ever! Isn’t he adorable? I just can’t get enough of this stamp set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Little Elephant Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This stamp set is sweet and whimsical, and can be used for lots of occasions. There’s a coordinating punch too!

One thing I like about this punch…it punches little ears for the two sizes of elephants! On today’s card I’ve punched a little ear out of Crumb Cake card stock, and then stamped little hearts coming out of his trunk in Crumb Cake ink!

Wood Words Welcome and My Little Dog :-)

Stampin' Up! Welcome Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Hi there! Welcome! Do you ever need a welcome card? I need them to welcome new members of my Sweet Stampers Team ~ and the Wood Words stamp set has a cute little “welcome” sentiment that’s just perfect!

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Welcome - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Because the sentiment is a bit small, I highlighted it and made it look larger by cutting it out with the square Stitched Shapes Framelits and layering it on top of a contrasting color square. This makes the small-sized sentiment look bigger!

Stampin' Up! Wood Words - Prettypapercards - stampinup

So,, as I was working on this card, my little Yorkshire Terrier Elie came to tell me she wanted something (likely dinner). I explained to her that I was finishing up this card for my blog post and asked if she could wait just a bit. She ran away and I was deeply concentrating on this card. When I finished it, I got up to take the photos where I always do, in front of a few sprigs of silk ivy. As I approached the photo area I saw that some ivy had blown off the table onto the floor. I’ve had the fan on because it’s been pretty warm here. As I knelt down to pick up the sprig of ivy, it fell apart in my hand and I saw that the leaves had all come off the stem. Then I saw that the plastic stem was in little bits. Then I looked over — and there was Elie with leaves and sprigs of ivy all around her, just looking at me as if to say – look away, I’m not doing anything!!!

She is so cute! I can’t even tell you how much fun we have together. But I do sure hope that her tummy is ok :-l Think she was hungry??? Back to this card (less a sprig of ivy!!!).

Beautiful Designer Series Paper Sale is Almost Over!

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature cards - Peggy Noe - stampinup

There are only 2 days left of the BUY 3 GET 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Sale (today and tomorrow), so I thought I would show you some projects I’ve made using a few of these beautiful papers.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Poem - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The first two cards use the Nature’s Poem dsp (short for Designer Series Paper). I particularly love the Blackberry Bliss color that runs through these papers.

Stampin' Up! Detailed With Love - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The card above uses the Petal Promenade dsp (love, love!). I have to say it’s probably my favorite…beautiful roses and shades of pink, what more can a girl ask for?

Stampin' Up! Pop of Petals Punch - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

The paper on this card is the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ dsp. It’s bold and bright and full of flowers. And the 6″ x 6″ size makes it easy to work with.

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic - Peggy Noe - stampinup

And here is the Tropical Escape 6″ x 6″ dsp. I’ve probably used this paper the most. The colors are spectacular and the tropical theme is so perfect for summer.

Here’s a chart of all the papers that are on sale through July 31st. You’ve seen 4 out of the 10 available in this promotion.

Personally, I would recommend ordering the 4 papers I’ve featured. You buy 3 at $11.00 each and get the 4th FREE!! There you go! Decision made! 🙂 Oh, don’t forget that each of these dsp’s have an available card stock pack! That’s a package of 24 sheets of card stock, 8 sheets of 3 different colors that coordinate perfectly with the dsp! These are all shown in the product lineup at the end of this post.
