Simple Well Said Birthday!

Stampin' Up! Well Said Birthday - prettypapercards - stampinup

The Well Said Bundle is ah-ma-zing! Why? Because it gives you hundreds of options!! The stamp set has 51 stamps!!! These are individual sentiment stamps. And, the framelit set has 24 dies ~ nice cursive sentiment dies. Between the stamps and dies, you can create literally hundreds of combinations!!

This bundle makes creating a card very quick and easy, and today’s card is a perfect example. You choose a die – in this case the word “birthday.” And then you choose a coordinating stamp – I’ve chosen the word “happy,” a standard sentiment. And there you go!

For this card I’ve layered card stock and designer series paper. The dsp is called Classic Garage and comes in 6″ x 6″ double-sided sheets. The green used here is Tranquil Tide. It makes for a  great guy card, don’t you think?

The envelope for this card was lined with another piece of Classic Garage dsp. There’s a great envelope liner die in the Beautiful Layers Thinlints Die set. It’s such a nice way to finish off your card by lining the envelope 🙂

All That You Are Birthday and Stampin’ Blends Tip!

Stampin' Up All That You Are Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This birthday card showcases the spectacular All That You Are Cling Stamp Set. It’s a great set for coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers! And, it goes along with this week’s Global Design Project Theme of the garden path 🙂 

Stampin' Up! All that You Are - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I just love this bouquet of flowers ~ it looks like a bride’s bouquet, don’t you think? The main bouquet was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored in with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and the Granny Apple Green Combo Pack.

I’ve added two additional flowers colored with the Lovely Lipstick Combo Pack and cut out with the coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies. These are affixed with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Pretty Pointer:  Use the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to add depth to your colored images. After you have applied the color, go back in and “lift” some of the color. Here you can see that I lifted color from the petals of the largest flower. Do you see where it looks almost white in the center of some of the petals? That’s where I’ve “lifted” color!

See my YouTube Video Tutorial with my 3 Tips for Using Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers HERE!

Coloring stamped images is SO much fun! It totally relaxes me. It’s so peaceful to just think about colors…everything else is forgotten and I’m peacefully coloring…you should try it! And it’s so easy to create something beautiful with these Stampin’ Blends!

Hoppy Birthday!

Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This So Hoppy Together stamp set is too cute! And when I thought of making a fun guy birthday card my mind went right to this set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Hoppy Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It has fun whimsical characters that make me laugh and they will bring a smile to anyone who receives this card! Start by stamping your frog of choice (hee-hee!) from the set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock. Use our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color in the body. I used the Old Olive Combo Pack which includes both the light and dark shades. I stamped the little crown and then colored that in with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

Stampin' Up! Hoppy Birthday - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Isn’t this unicycle-riding guy so happy/hoppy?? For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiment stamps from the set onto a small strip of Whisper White card stock. Then I trimmed the word “hoppy” out with my Paper Snips. I stamped the word “Birthday” using the Well Said stamp set, trimming it as with the other word. They are attached to the Whisper White panel with few dots of Multipurpose Glue.

Notice the creatures shown above in the stamp set. There is a funny set of three flies with googly eyes (!!!!) and a dragonfly, also with googly eyes 🙂 Too cute!

During Sale-a-Bration, this stamp set is FREE with your order of $50 or more in my online store HERE. And, I have exciting news—on March 1st you will be able to order the coordinating framelits for this stamp set! Yippee! Be watching for the Sale-a-Bration Coordination Products available March 1st.

For today’s card I used a piece of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I’ve just started using this paper and it’s so much fun! I love the bright colors and fun graphics. Like the piece I used today…such adorable little colored dots all over. It looks like confetti 🙂

The complimenting color here is Pineapple Punch. It looks so fresh and vibrant with the purples, doesn’t it? This is going to be a great color for spring! This really is an easy card to make. I’ve created several base layers, but you can just use one, with a stitched rectangle that forms the background for the die-cut words. Choose the words you want for your card and use a bright complimentary color. Poof, you are done! Easy, right?
