Celebrate With A Coastal Cabana Sunflower!

Celebrate Sunflowers Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

You would expect a sunflower to be yellow or orange and black, wouldn’t  you? But today’s card is different! Here I’ve used Coastal Cabana and Petal Pink with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle to create a different kind of sunflower!

The standout on this card is the large Petal Pink die-cut sunflower adhered over a Square Vellum Doily. I love the light lacy look! In the center is a small sunflower stamped in Petal Pink ink on Whisper White card stock. The sentiment was stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on Petal Pink card stock and carefully fussy cut.

This bundle is just amazing. It could be my favorite bundle in this year’s Annual Catalog! If you don’t have this bundle, you absolutely must get it! And if you have it, I encourage you to try out some unexpected colors! 

A 1/2″ strip of Petal Pink card stock placed above and below the sunflower really brings the sunflower and the sentiment into focus. This card can be used for all types of occasions: birthday, graduation, engagement, retirement, etc.!

Celebrate Sunflowers!

Celebrate Sunflowers Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle is FABULOUS! At first I thought it was seasonal – just for fall. But the more I use it, I find that it’s for ANYTIME! Today’s card is a fun card that could be a summer card, but could also just be a celebration card!

This card begins with a Daffodil Delight card stock base. On the front of the card base is a fun piece of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper. I love this particular design because it looks kind of like confetti in the air for a celebration!!

The sunflower die creates a wonderful background piece. Here I used Shimmery White card stock lightly watercolored with Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo ink. When dry, the paper was cut with the large sunflower die and adhered to the card with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Melon Mambo ink on a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock. It was then cut out with a die from the Ornate Layers Dies and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

NEW VIDEO: Happy 4th of July!!

Celebrate Patriotic Card Pretty Paper Cards

Happy Independence Day!! Hope you have a nice weekend, even though it will be different from normal. I’ve decided to celebrate anyway and be happy, and I’ve created a fun card to do just that!

This card uses a fun technique where you lay down strips of cardstock, glue them to a base, and when they are dry you cut them out in whatever shape you like using dies! Here I’ve used the Stitched Be Mine Dies. I love the scalloped heart border that is cut separately when you use the die. Here it’s layered and set off to the left from the main heart!

Patriotic Celebrate Card Peggy Noe (1)

To add more festive texture, the 5″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White panel was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. Some Misty Moonlight, White and Silver twisted baker’s twine was tied around the panel in a fun bow. The ends of the baker’s twine have been frayed loose with Paper Snips.

Black and White Striped Celebration!!

Stampin' Up! Striped First Frost - prettypapercards - stampinup

Black and white stripes are classic. They give a fresh and modern look to everything ~ including cards! So how do you create a striped background?

Stampin' Up! First Frost stripes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Well, you might use a designer paper that has black and white stripes. But you also might create your own stripes 🙂 Start with a panel of Whisper White card stock 4″ x 5-1/4.” Cut 5 strips of Basic Black card stock to 4″ x 1/2.” Lay them across the white panel at 1/2″ intervals. To get the spacing close to exact (it’s hard to be totally exact!), you can use a few methods. One is to line up your Whisper White panel on our Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper and then line the black strips up accordingly on grid lines, at 1/2″ intervals.

The method I used was to cut another strip of card stock – I chose Daffodil Delight for contrast- at 1/2″ x 5.” This became a guide that I placed between each black strip to make sure the distance between them was 1/2.” It worked well for me. You might even have another way to line up the black strips. If you do, please let me know 🙂

I’m so happy with this card, I just love the black and white. I may be doing it more, so watch out!!

Celebrate the Beauty of Fall!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Thinlits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are staples in my craft room. The “celebrate” sentiment is one that can be used for several different occasions…birthday, congratulations, and others!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today I’m using the sentiment to celebrate the season! I love fall – have I said that? And here in San Diego County it’s actually been cooler than usual this October. I’m a happy girl!!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Cajun Craze, Tranquil Tide and Peta Pink are the colors used on this card. The petal shape is repeated in several of the elements, that’s what brings everything together. 

To create this card, start with a Whisper White card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Then adhere the Cajun Craze panel 4″ x 5-1/4″ embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Thinlits - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Adhere a 3″ x 2″ piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series paper wrapped on the left edge with a piece of Tranquil Tide Mini Ruffled Ribbon. Punch some Vellum three times using the Leaf Punch and randomly arrange them under the die-cut word “Celebrate.”
