Garden Birdhouse Birthday!

Garden Birdhouse Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards #gardenbirdhouses #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup #birthdaycard

These little birdhouses are so cute, and the tiny birds are even cuter! Today I’ve used the Garden Birdhouses stamp set to make a birthday card that has some sponge daubing and some ink blending 🙂

On top of a Cajun Craze card base is a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White cardstock.This piece was colored with Blending Brushes, using Balmy Blue ink on the top half and Granny Apple Green on the lower half.

Then the birdhouses were stamped with Crumb Cake ink, and the little birds were stamped with Cajun Craze and colored in with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Now, for the cute little leaves! They are from the Sparkle of the Season Bundle. This is where I used the Sponge Daubers. I sponged three different ink colors on each leaf stamp: Cajun Craze, Flirty Flamingo, and Crushed Curry. After I sponge on the colors, I “huff” on the stamp with my mouth. This moistens the ink so that it stamps perfectly! The leaves were then cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Mystery Happy Birthday!

Handmade Birthday Card Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #you'reapeachpaper #happybirthday #happybirthdaycard #birthdaycard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Last night at my team get together and we played mystery stamping. What’s mystery stamping? It’s a time when you put together a card based on clues. This is the card I created using the clues!

Handmade Birthday Card Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #you'reapeachpaper #happybirthday #happybirthdaycard #birthdaycard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #artgallery

We started with a card base and a piece of designer series paper. I used the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper which is one of my favorites 🙂 Then I added cardstock that coordinated with the colors in the designer series paper.

The leaves were cut with the Stitched Leaves Dies. Some were cut from Pear Pizzaz card stock and the larger leaf  was cut from the free Be Dazzling paper. I LOVE this free Sale-a-Bration paper! The sentiment is from the Art Gallery stamp set.

Quick Birthday Card Design!

Handmade Striped Birthday Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe Pretty Paper Cards #you'reapeach #you'reapeachdsp #stampin'up #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Today’s card is a quick and easy card design. All you really need to make it “pop” is a pretty designer series paper. I’ve chosen one of my favorites, the You’re a Peach paper.

Handmade Striped Birthday Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe Pretty Paper Cards #you'reapeach #you'reapeachdsp #stampin'up #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #sweetasapeachstampset

Simply cover the front of your card base with a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the peach paper. Cut (4) 3/4″ x 5-1/2″ strips of another paper design (with our beautiful designer series papers, you could simply use the reverse side of the same sheet!) and arrange them on the front of the card. Stamp your sentiment on another strip and – poof – you’re done! Here’s a replay of my Facebook Live showing you just how to make this card:

 

 

You can add more to your card, like.embellishments, leaves, or more layers under the sentiment. But you don’t have to. The paper does all the work for you!

NEW VIDEO: Penguins ~ Penguins ~ Penguins!

Today is all about penguins! They are the cutest little guys and Stampin’ Up! has gone overboard with penguins. They have stamps and paper and a punch!

I’ve made two cards using the same items, showing how you can change just a few things to create for a whole new look! Below is a replay of a Facebook Live video showing how you can make the same cards.

As I mentioned on the video, this fun Penguin Playmates paper is totally FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a minimum $50 order. Not only are the penguins on this paper adorable, but the reverse side of the papers have patterns that can be used as card backgrounds.

Here is the Penguin Place Bundle that coordinates with the above paper. The punch cuts out some of the penguins in the paper! Who doesn’t love that??

Actually, I don’t even have the Penguin Place Bundle ~ can you believe it? I wanted to create a card with only the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper alone. I got it FREE with one of my orders. So I decided to use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. It fits the penguins perfectly!

And behind the penguins is one of the reverse sides of the papers. Doesn’t it look great? And the picture below also shows an envelope with the flap covered in another one of the papers!

The birthday sentiment is from the Counting Sheep stamp set, and it’s been punched out with the Double Oval Punch. I really like making cards with punches, they are quick and easy ::-)

NEW VIDEO: Counting Sheep Birthday Card!

Counting Sheep Birthday Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe #countingsheep #sheepdies #birthdaycard #sheepbirthdaycard #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup

Have you gotten your FREE Counting Sheep stamp set yet? It’s SO cute! And, there are FREE Sheep Dies that go with it! Both the stamp set and the dies are FREE, each with a minimum $50 order during Sale-a-Bration. This is a wonderful time to order some products from the new Holiday Mini Catalog (CLICK HERE TO SEE), and get these FREE items!

Today’s birthday card is made with both the stamp set and dies. I’ve created my sheep to mimic the Valais Blacknose Sheep. The post popped up one day on my Facebook feed (did I tell you I love sheep?) and I’ve been following them ever since. It’s a shelter for the blacknose sheep, located in Sweden, and they have the most adorable sheep! Here’s a picture from their Facebook page. If you want to follow them, search for “Walliskt Svartnosfar.”

Aren’t they so cute? When I colored my sheep I gave them all black faces, ears, and hooves using Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. Then I colored in the sheep with little circles drawn with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

Here’s a replay of my Facebook Live showing you how to make this card:

The “sky” here was colored with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends and then I went back in with the Color Lifter to  give a bit of shading. And did I mention that there is the tiniest stamp of grass?? 🙂 I stamped it in layers across the bottom to look like a field.

Handmade Birthday Card using the Stampin' Up! Counting Sheep Stamp Set and Sheep Dies by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #countingsheep #sheepdies #birthdaycard #sheepbirthdaycard #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup #happysheep

The Sheep Dies have lots of things that the stamp set doesn’t have, like the sun, the balloon, and the gate. These can be used for many other types of cards. I cut two suns from Basic White cardstock and colored them with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Then I adhered the first one with a Stampin’ Dimensional, and the second one on top of that with a Stampin’ Dimensional. 

 

The balloon was colored with Real Red Stampin’ Blends and then I colored the string of the balloon with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and adhered it onto the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then cut out with one of the Hippo & Friends Dies.

So don’t you love these cute blacknose sheep?? I adore them and am already thinking of friends who have upcoming birthdays 🙂

NEW VIDEO: What is a Cloche??

What is a cloche? How do you pronounce it? Why am I talking about it?

Handmade Birthday Card made with the Sweets & Treats Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #sweets&treats #sweets&treatsstampset #clochecard #birthday #birthdaycard #cupcakecard #birthdaycupcake #birthdaycupcakecard #peggynoe #prettypapercards #prettypapercards.com #stampinup #stampingup #cupcake

Well, I’m talking about a cloche because Stampin’ Up! is releasing 2 new stamp sets on August 3rd and both of them have cloche images in them! So I set out to find out more. First, you pronounce it “KL-O-SH” with a long O. It means “bell” in French. Ok, so we’ve got a bell What does it mean? It has several meanings:

  1. A glass bell-shaped dome that covers food to keep it moist;
  2. A glass or plastic dome that covers plants, specifically baby plants, to keep them moist and help them grow;
  3. A centuries-old ceramic baking dish used over a fire;
  4. A current type of baking dish used frequently to bake and store sourdough bread; and,
  5. A bell-shaped women’s hat popular in the early 1900’s.

And there you go! Now you know about the cloche and you’re ready to make cloche cards!!!

The Sweets & Treats Stamp Set is one of my favorites in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. It has all kinds of fun baked goods stamps and a cloche to put them in! For this card, I stamped the stand, the cloche, and I put a darling birthday cupcake inside the cloche! Here’s a replay of my Facebook Live that shows you how to make this card!

The stamps in this set couldn’t be cuter. Look at the darling heart on top of the cloche. I stamped it, colored it with Stampin’ Blends, and fussy cut it. It’s such a great finish for the cloche!

On top of the cupcake I added a Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot. This is a new embellishment in the Mini Catalog and we are going to use these dot alot for the upcoming fall and winter holidays!
