New Look, New Video: Smile!

Daisy Lane Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

Welcome to my new blog look! My friend Nicole Watt from Integrant Services has given my blog a beautiful refresh and I just LOVE it! It’s just what I needed with spring starting and the flowers in my garden ready to bloom. I hope you like it too 🙂

Today’s card also carries on the spring theme with the Daisy Lane stamp set and lots of punches. This was the card we made on last Friday’s Facebook Live! See the video tutorial below:

This card is just filled with punched images. The daisy was created using the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch. The leaves were made with the Leaf Punch and the Sprig Punch. The center of the daisy was punched from Mossy Meadow card stock using the 1/2″ Circle Punch. And the right edge of the sentiment strip was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch. Whew ~ that’s a lot of punches!

The background sheet here is a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. This blue gives a nice balance to the other colors. The sentiment “Smile” is one for so many occasions. This is a nice card to have on hand to send as an encouragement.

Make Today Amazing!

Rise & Shine Card with Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

Make today amazing with a nice hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate or tea! Whatever it takes to get you started, grab it and let’s make a card!  Today’s card features the FREE Rise & Shine stamp set, (FREE with a minimum $100 order in my online store) with a great mug and hot steam coming out of the mug. Personally, I prefer to consider it hot black coffee – my favorite early morning beverage! When I get up in the morning, the first thing I want is my black cup of coffee! After that, I’m ready to go, and “Make today amazing!” 

Rise & Shine Stampin' Up! Peggy NoeThe Rise & Shine stamp set gives you everything you need to create a fun card! The stamp set coordinates with the Cup of Cheer Dies which have continued over from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog. The stamp set itself is a “reversible” stamp set, so that you can stamp the mug with the handle on the right side or the left side. Isn’t that neat?

For this card, I’ve combined the stamp set and the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The cute little flowers were stamped with Seaside Spray ink and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The dots were stamped with a tiny dot stamp from the Perennial Essence stamp set using Terracotta Tile ink. (I keep this stamp handy and use it all the time!)

Rise & Shine Card using Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The inside of this card is plain and simple, the word “Thanks” from the new Ornate Garden Stamp Set is available April 1st. It’s cut with the pretty Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The Meercats Welcome You!

Meercat Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe.jpg

Have you seen these cute little meercats? The meercat stamp set is called The Gang’s All Meer and it’s FREE with a minimum $50 order until March 31st. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve used this set. It’s sooooo darling! 

Meercats Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

We had some new neighbors move in and I couldn’t believe it…2 parents and 3 little children! 5 people – 5 meercats!! What a perfect card for them! And the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper is so happy and cheerful I just had to use it!

Meercats Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The sentiment is from the Welcome Easter stamp set. The actual stamp says “welcome to the world, little one.” After stamping the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I fussy cut carefully around the word “welcome” and the sweet little heart. Then I used a Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend to color in the heart.

Hold On to Hope!

Hold on to Hope Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

Today’s card expresses something I want to say to each one of you: hold on to hope! These are difficult times. We are all concerned and anxious. But to get through this we need to hold on to hope, don’t give up, don’t be discouraged. Personally, my hope is in Jesus. His presence gives me great comfort, and I want you to know that same comfort. Hopefully, today’s card and stamp set will be an encouragement to you 🙂

Hold on to Hope Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The Hold on to Hope stamp set and coordinating Cross of Hope dies work beautifully together. I especially love the filagree cross die! It’s so easy to create a beautiful card. This stamp set and coordinating dies make gorgeous Easter cards!

 

Hold on to Hope by Stampin' Up! Peggy NoeDid you notice the new So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper? This paper is one of the NEW FREE Sale-a-Bration offerings that you can choose to receive with a minimum $50 order!

NEW VIDEO: Make Today Amazing!

Rise & Shine Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

Hi Friends! I’ve been thinking about you and wondering if you are working or at home…with this corona virus situation. Maybe you are working from home? I learned that’s now called “WFH.” In any event, stamping is a wonderful thing to do when you’re home!! I’m committed to giving you lots of ideas and designs to keep you busy 🙂

This is the card I made last Friday on my Facebook Live and I want you to see the video tutorial so that you can make it too.

The important thing to know is that this stamp set is FREE with your order of $100 or more during Sale-a-Bration! Use the Rise & Shine Stamp Set to create cards and other projects with hot morning beverages and greetings that are sure to warm anyone’s heart. This stamp set is a Reversibles set, so some of the stamps are two sided with an image on each side of the stamp for more creative options.

My favorite stamp in the set is the cute “steam” coming out of the mug!! Love, love!

Rise & Shine Stamp Set Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

One thing I love about this stamp set is that it goes with the Cup of Cheer Die set. There are dies to cut each of the cups – easy right? That way you can pop up the cup using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Pals Critters Blog Hop AND Blog Candy!

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Honey Bee Bundle Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

Researching how long I’ve been a part of the Pals Blog Hop, I discovered that I’ve been doing this for 8 years! Wow, it’s gone by so fast. I’ve just loved hopping along every month, it’s really a highlight of the month for me!

For this month my “critter” card has birds, bees and butterflies ~ three adorable critters! They all seem to belong together, don’t they? 🙂 They are sitting on a watercolored background which has a light wash of Pretty Peacock ink.

Honey Bee Bundle Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The birds were simply fussy cut out of a piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and adhered directly onto the watercolored piece. Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon was colored with a Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend and tied around in a bow. The bee hive was stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink – this color goes beautifully with Pretty Peacock. A piece of White Vellum was laid over the bee hive to give it a softer look. 

Honey Bee Bundle Garden Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The bee was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and colored just a bit with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. A Gold Foil piece of honeycomb was placed behind the hive. The Pretty Peacock butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty Dies. The sweet little “hello” sentiment was heat embossed with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock. And to finish the card off, a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones were added.
