~First Frost Birthday Card~

Stampin' Up! First Frost Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup.jpg

Ok, so I’ve discovered I REALLY like the new First Frost Bundle in the Holiday Catalog. I knew I liked it, but when I set out to make a birthday card and still wanted to use this bundle…I realized I REALLY like it! It’s got to be the adorable flowers. They have a watercolored look and are just downright pretty!

Stampin' Up! First Frost Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinupThe flowers are layered on top of sweet Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and some die cut and punched leaves. The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral and cut with one of the Stitched Label Framelits. One of the adorable Blossoms Elements (a sweet little rose) is attached to the sentiment label.

The leaves on this card are a combination of two styles. The first is Vellum leaves punched out with the Leaf Punch, and the second is Petal Pink leaves die cut using the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.

P.S You’re the Best Birthday Card!

Stampin' Up! PS You're the Best - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Look at this cute typewriter! I love typewriters…I’ve spent years typing on typewriters! 🙂 And, this one is so cute, isn’t it? It’s adorably retro and has lots of messages to put on the paper!

Stampin' Up! Typewriter - Prettypapercards - stampinup

This stamp set is called P.S. You’re the Best and, of course, that’s one of the sentiments! There are 8 different phrases you can put on the paper coming out of the typewriter.

 

Stampin' Up! Typewriter - Peggy Noe - stampinup

To create this card I started with a Whisper White card stock base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White card stock washed with a Pool Party watercolor wash. The typewriter was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then the typewriter was placed over the watercolor wash with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Glitter Enamel Dots and some Rose Metallic Thread finished it off.

Introducing Limited-Edition Blended Seasons Video!

Stampin' Up! Purple Blended Seasons - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Stampin’ Up! has introduced a fabulous limited-time bundle called Blended Seasons, and today I have for you both a sample card and a video showing you the bundle!

This bundle is so much fun! Truthfully I’ve only played with the floral image, but am so looking forward to using every stamp in the set! I think what I like the most about this bundle is the Framelits. The large framing dies are stitched on the outside and the inside, and they create such unusual cards! 

Stampin' Up! Blended Seasons Bundle

Included in this offering are Watercolor Pencils in some of our new colors! So exciting! I have the Watercolor Pencils but for this card I decided to use some of the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers 🙂

Easy Lemon Zest Birthday Card!

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Oh my goodness, it’s been SO hot here in Southern California! I needed something to refresh me. What better than a cute citrus birthday card?  🙂

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest Card - Prettypapercarrds - stampinup

I decided to pull out the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Builder Punch – they really make a great summer birthday card.

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This card is easy because it’s almost all done with punches! I just love punches, they’re quick and it’s so satisfying to pop out a cute little citrus slice!! So all you do here is stamp the citrus slices in a few different colors and punch them out with a 1-3/4″ circle punch.

Then stamp the lemon and leaves and punch them out with the Lemon Builder Punch, and you’re ready to assemble. Quick, right?

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest - Prettypapercards - stampinup

To make this card base, start with a piece of Whisper White card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 2-1/8″ and 6-3/8.” Fold and burnish the score lines. The closure of the card is at the front. I used a sheet of the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (Interesting, right? This is one of the black and white sheets in the paper stack!). Cut two pieces to 5-1/4″ x 2″ and adhere one to each front panel. Then arrange the punched citrus slices on the panels, trimming off the edges of some of the pieces and placing them at the sides of the panels. Adhere.

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Adhere the leaves to the lemon, then adhere to the left side of the card opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals.. Stamp a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock with the Happy Birthday sentiment, trim the card stock, and adhere the sentiment over the lemon also with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish, apply Wink of Stella to the citrus slices to make them sparkle 🙂

Stampin' Up! Nature's Poem dsp - Prettypapercards - stampinup

ALL the Designer Series Papers are my favorites! They’re all so pretty that it’s been hard to choose which one to use 🙂 I decided on Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. I love the beautiful color Blackberry Bliss and have created a card using two papers in that color. Seriously, aren’t they gorgeous?

Stampin' Up! You Are Wonderful - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The papers are aligned against the right edge and the bottom edge of the card. This pulls the eye to focus on the strong sentiment “You Are Wonderful.” It’s such a great saying and works for birthdays, congratulations, and many other occasions!

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature cards - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Some 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon in Powder Pink is tied in a little bow (LOVE this ribbon!!), and the sentiment has been stamped onto a circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. A few Iridescent Sequins finish it off.

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.

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

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!
