Perennial Ice Cream Birthday Card!

There’s so much I want to show you in this fun card. It has some retiring items and some items that are carrying over, and they all combine for a very “happy” card!

This card uses the beautiful retiring Purple Posy card stock. There is a card base, and then a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Watch the video below to learn how to create this card!

The Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper is so much fun! It’s retiring soon so I really wanted to use it. I’ve fussy cut the ice cream cones (there’s one inside, and one on the envelope) so that they appear all over the card 🙂

The sentiment is from the retiring Pretty Perennials stamp set. It was stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink and fussy cut. It is adhered on a 3-3/4″ x 1″ strip of the Ice Cream Corner paper, and both are secured with Stampin’ Dimensionals on top of some sweet Blushing Bride Twine.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels are scattered about for some bling 🙂

True Love for Green Week!


Handmade birthday card using True Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #truelovedsp #shadedspruce #birthdaycard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

It’s GREEN WEEK here at Pretty Paper Cards, and every day I’m going to show you a card featuring one of the many beautiful Stampin’ Up! greens! It seems appropriate because St. Patrick’s Day is this week. Today’s color is Shaded Spruce!

This card uses the True Love Designer Series Paper. This is a black and white paper with floral and geometric patterns, and it just cries out to be colored! The base of the card is Basic White card stock and a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock was adhered over that. Three 2″ x 3″ pieces of the white and black polka dotted sheet of True Love paper were then adhered alternately.

The floral cluster was fussy cut from another sheet of the True Love Designer Series Paper. (You can make an entire card with this paper!) The flowers were colored with the Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. The leaves were colored with the Dark Shaded Spruce Blend, and the petals were colored with the Light Shaded Spruce Blend.

The Fine Art 3/8″ Gold Ribbon was adhered with Stampin’ Seal +. Put a strip of the adhesive along a horizontal line, adhere a bit of ribbon, make a loop and adhere another bit of ribbon, and so on. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set.

Handmade birthday card using the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp Set and Butterfly Bijou Paper by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #ridiculouslyawesome #butterflybijou #stampinup #stampingup #prettypapercards #peggynoe #birthdaycard #gildedleafing

This week is Green Week! Wednesday is St. Patrick’s Day and it’s a great excuse to CELEBRATE all week! We’ll start out with a big, bold birthday card using the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set. And, I am totally ready for this fun week:

Today’s card uses some fun Gilded Leafing! Watch the re-run of my Facebook Live below to learn how to make this card and use the Gilded Leafing!

 

The design for today’s card is from the Global Design Project Challenge. It’s an easy design, and I had lots of fun with it!


The main color on today’s card is Just Jade. I’m really loving this color! The background uses the new Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper that is only available until May 3, or while supplies last.

Stamps with BIG sentiments make creating cards easy-peezy! Basically you make the background and add the large sentiment, that’s it!

Fancy Fold Birthday for the Pals Blog Hop!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created “Birthday Bonanza” projects to inspire you to make for all of your family and friends. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we all love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Handmade Fine Art Floral Stampin' Up! 3D Card by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #fineartfloral #peggynoe #prettypapercards #3Dcard #fancyfoldcard

Today’s card is a fun fancy-fold card using the beautiful Fine Art Floral Suite, and it really is fun! It also uses the new Gilded Leafing!

Handmade Fine Art Floral Stampin' Up! 3D Card by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #fineartfloral #peggynoe #prettypapercards #3Dcard

The card base is a piece of Old Olive cardstock cut at 12″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 2,” 4,” 8,” and 10.” Fold the sides in toward the center, and then fold the 2″ panels back so it looks like doors. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Rococo Rose cardstock. Then cut that piece into three sections, each 4″ x 1-13/16.” They will lay horizontally across the front of the card, but do not adhere at this point. Cut three pieces of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper, each 3-3/4″ x 1-9/16.” Adhere the strips of designer series paper to the strips of cardstock with Multipurpose Glue.

Handmade Fine Art Floral Stampin' Up! 3D Card by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #fineartfloral #peggynoe #prettypapercards #3Dcard  #fancyfold

Simply lay the cardstock strips horizontally on the folded card front and adhere the first and third strips to the left side, then adhere the second strip to the center of the right side. 

Handmade Fine Art Floral Stampin' Up! 3D Card by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #fineartfloral #peggynoe #prettypapercards #fancyfold

The words were cut from Basic White cardstock using the dies; a thin layer of Multipurpose Glue was placed on the lower half of the letters and Gilded Leafing was pressed onto the glue. After it dried, a small paint brush was used to brush off the excess. The gilded words were adhered to the strips using Foam Adhesive Strips.

The inside of the card was decorated with another pattern of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. The leaf and flower were stamped and cut with dies, and the sentiment from the set was stamped and cut with a label die from the set. This is a fun card to make and it really shows off the gorgeous designer series paper!

I just can’t stop playing with these adorable chicks! Today’s card is a 3-1/2″ x 5″ birthday notecard, the perfect size to drop in the mail for that special friend.

And these notecards use a fresh color combination of So Saffron, Real Red, and Basic White. These colors can be used all year round, but they look especially nice in February 🙂

Here’s a video tutorial demonstrating how to make today’s featured card.

 

Look how cute these little chicks are in the card below! I can’t help but giggle each time I look at them! I love the crepe paper banner!!
