Pals Blog Hop: “B” for Blushing Bride Birthday!

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B”. Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is. Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

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! Healing Hugs Birthday - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinupStampin' Up! Healing Hugs Birthday - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

My card today is a birthday card using several brand new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. It was so much fun to open these new goodies and play with them! 

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs - Peggy Noe - stampinup

These beautiful roses and leaves are from the new Healing Hugs stamp set. Aren’t they gorgeous? They are a new type of stamp called “dist-INK-tive” stamps. They were made in a special way to look very real and lifelike! CLICK HERE to see a video all about the DistINKtive stamps 🙂

Stampin' Up! Ruffled Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Underneath the roses is a piece of the new Tropical Escape 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which has been embossed with the very amazing Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Do you see the ruffles? I LOVE them!! The card uses our soft pink called Blushing Bride. Mostly monochromatic cards can draw your attention to the elements of the card instead of focusing on the color.

The sweet little sentiment tag was cut with the new Stitched Labels Framelits and stamped with a sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I chose this sentiment because I like the different fonts and the size fits perfectly into the tag framelit!

Big on Birthdays With My Favorite Outgoing Colors!

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Today I have a fun birthday card for you with a rainbow panel of color! The Big on Birthdays stamp set has some wonderful large birthday sentiments. This sentiment is heat embossed in white on a piece of vellum which lays over the rainbow panel.

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

To make the rainbow, I simply sponged on the colors in stripes across the Whisper White card stock. I’m using some of my favorite retiring colors ~ Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Peekaboo Peach. Aren’t they beautiful together?

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays Card - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The base of this card is also Wild Wasabi, and for texture I added a bit of Pink Pirouette card stock embossed with the Basket Weave Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available in the new annual catalog).
