This paper is covered with flowers – and lots of them. One of the colors in the paper is the 2020-2022 In Color called Bumblebee. This color frames the card and is the circle background for the sentiment. It looks amazing against the black background of the designer paper!

The sentiment here is from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets!

Behind the sentiment is a precut figure from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. The figure has been reversed, so the gold is at the back and the white is face up. The white picks up the white blooms in the paper and goes beautifully with the theme of wildflowers.

Buffalo Check Birthday Card!

#somuchlove #stampinup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #buffalochecks #birthdaycard

Black and white buffalo checks are so “IN.” For today’s card they form the backdrop for a pretty fall floral arrangement. 

#somuchlove #stampinup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #buffalochecks #birthdaycard

To effectively stamp the Buffalo Check stamp, it’s best if you use the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool. This way you can stamp several times to get the desired coverage.

The cute little pumpkins were cut with the Autumn Essentials Dies, and the background leaves were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. I think I’ve told you before that I’ve cut leaves with these dies from all shades of green, and I keep them handy to pull out when I need them 🙂

#somuchlove #stampinup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #buffalochecks #birthdaycard

The flower is from the So Much Love Stamp Set (that you can get FREE with your Starter Kit during the month of September 2020!). The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It’s stamped on Petal Pink card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch.

Posted for You: Pals In Color Blog Hop!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our theme is the “new 2020-2022 In Colors.” The Design Team is showcasing the new family of In Colors from the new catalog. We know you will love them as much as we do! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Posted for You Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

My word for this year’s In Colors is “rich.” They aren’t quite gem tones, and they aren’t really deep, but they are rich colors Each one has depth, and blends well with other colors. For today’s card I’ve used the In Colors Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Misty Moonlight.

Posted for You Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

Today’s card uses the sweet new Posted for You Bundle. It has the cutest Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch 🙂 The “stamp” is featured right in the center of this square card. Here are the details on how to make this card:

The birds and leaves were stamped in Sahara Sand ink on two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. One image was lightly watercolored with Just Jade and Misty Moonlight ink, using the new Water Painters.  On the second image, only the lower bird was watercolored with Bumblebee ink. It was then fussy cut out of the rest of the image. This tiny bird was adhered over the bird on the first piece, using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. A Magenta Madness In Color Enamel Dot was placed in the upper left corner of the stamp for the tiniest bit of bling!

The card base is 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White card stock, scored at 4-1/4.” A 4″ square piece of Just Jace card stock was adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Glue. 

Posted for You Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

A 3-3/4″ square piece of Bumblebee card stock was cut and dry embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. Then a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock was cut with the largest square die from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered on a diamond angle over the Bumblebee piece, using Multipurpose Glue.

A Square Vellum Doily was trimmed down with Paper Snips and adhered in the center of the Misty Moonlight piece with tiny dots of Multipurpose Glue. Some Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine (part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) was wrapped twice around the Bumblebee piece and secured on the right side with a bow. The entire piece was then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Just Jade piece. The postage stamp was adhered over the baker’s twine with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Just Jade ink, and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. It was adhered to the card front, also with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals..

NEW VIDEO: Beautiful Friendship & Retiring In Colors!

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The Beautiful Friendship stamp set is – in one word – beautiful! Today’s card uses this stamp set to showcase the five retiring 2018-2020 In Colors. These colors will retire on June 3rd and I want to be sure you can grab the ones you want before they’re gone. Many times they sell out before they retire!

I’m wondering, which color is your favorite? Are you all stocked up on it? Mine is Lovely Lipstick, and you’ll be seeing more of it in the coming days 🙂 Here’s a video from my Facebook Live last Friday that demonstrates how to make today’s card:

 

One thing I love about this stamp set is the sentiments, they are so nice – ones that you can use over and over. You could create so many variations on today’s card: use softer colors,,, stamp all of the flowers on one side of the Whisper White card stock, SO many ideas!
