Stampin' Up! Precious Parcel Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

There are so many great Sale-a-Bration items that it was hard to choose, so I’ve used three! The Precious Parcel Card Kit is a vintage card kit and one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration items. For my card today I’ve cut out two of the floral images from the kit and used them as the focus of the card.

Stampin' Up! Sending Wishes Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

The background on the card is a piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I love both sides of these papers, one side is a butterfly pattern and the other side is a black and white pattern. Here you see the white paper with black dots. Above that is a layer of vellum.

The leaves behind the flowers were punched with the Leaf Punch from the third Sale-a-Bration item, a Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet. The lighting gives the leaves different shades in the photograph but they blend perfectly with the floral colors!

Butterfly Beauty Card!

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This is a card we made over the weekend at my local classes and I thought you’d like to see it! 

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

It was created using the Beauty Abounds Bundle. This is an amazing bundle! There are 20 dies in the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits that come as part of the bundle – wow! If you love butterflies, this is definitely the set for you! 🙂

The butterflies on today’s card are cut from both Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape card stock. These two purples go so well together! The yellow I used is the soft So Saffron. A beautiful color combination!

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Card - Peggy Noe - staminup

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Do you ever find a sentiment that you just love? That’s the way I feel about “a little note.” I love the font and I love the saying because it is SO versatile! It can convey hi, or hello, or thinking of you, or so sorry or…just about anything. It’s one I will be using a lot!

Well Written Dies for a Friend!

Stampin' Up! All My Love - prettypapercards - stampinup

Today’s card uses the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper as the base for a card for a friend! All the papers in this set are so pretty. The colors in this particular paper are Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, and Lovely Lipstick.

Pretty Pointer:  When using a pattern paper, stick with the colors in the the paper for the other elements of the card. (Going outside these colors creates confusion for the eye.) You see this technique used on today’s card.

Stampin' Up! All My Love - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Because Lovely Lipstick is one of the colors in the dsp, I’ve used the pretty Lovely Lipstick Foil (get FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration) for some background leaves. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and is stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink.

The “friend” die-cut word was cut using the Well Written Framelits Dies. The dies are fabulous! There’s SO much you can do with them!
