VIDEO! Fun Holiday Gift Box and Coordinating Card!

Joy Dies Stampin' Up! Peggy NoeIt’s so much fun to make a coordinating gift box and card, especially for the holidays! The Stampin’ Up! Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are a great size that allows for us to fill them with lots of fun goodies…like MORE chocolate! Hee!

The Joy Dies are some of my new favorites! I love the “clouds” that surround the delicate words. This die set has three words: joy – bright – peace. 

The Heartwarming Hugs paper is just right for the holidays, with great designs in traditional red and green. I really liked this pattern and it has a small green gingham on the back.

The card uses just about same design as the box. I gave the ribbon a bit of a different treatment. It’s an elegant stitched red satin ~ love it 🙂

NEW VIDEO: Perfectly Plaid Christmas Tree Card!

#perfectlyplaid #perfectlyplaidstampset #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #Christmascard

The Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch create fabulous Christmas cards! I love this stamp set because it has a variety of nice sentiments and great images, especially the Christmas trees! 

Today I have a video tutorial for you to show you just how to make this card:

 

 

I’ve been using this color combination a lot lately, and I really like it. For this card, I think the trees look so nice in the Granny Apple Green ink stamped on Granny Apple Green card stock.

The little dots on the card are from a stamp in the Gorgeous Posies stamp set. It almost looks like a bit of snow, doesn’t it?

Oh So Soft Poinsettia Holiday Card!

#poinsettia #poinsettiapetals #poinsettiacard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

When I first saw this color combination I was mesmerized. It’s unexpected, unusual, not a combination I would think of. But oh boy do I love it!

#poinsettia #poinsettiapetals #poinsettiacard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, Basic Black, and Whisper White – they are gorgeous together. The background of this card is a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper that’s been lightly washed with a Water Painter and Soft Sea Foam Ink.

#poinsettia #poinsettiapetals #poinsettiacard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

 

The Poinsettia Dies were used to cut the flower, the leaves, and the other pieces. You can see how the dies also emboss lines into the leaves and flowers for a realistic look. The flower petals were slightly curled using a Bone Folder. A bow of Linen Thread is tucked up under the leaves.

NEW VIDEO: Peony Poinsettia Christmas Card!

#peggynoe #prettypapercards #peonygarden #poinsettiapetals #stampinup #stampingup #christmas #christmascard #holidaycard

What? Peonies AND poinsettias? YES! These sweet peony buds make such a nice background on a Christmas card. Here’s a video tutorial showing you just how to create this card:

The Peony Garden Designer Series Paper comes to life when you color it with our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Here I’ve used the Real Red and the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs.

This is the fabulous Poinsettia Petals stamp set. There is SO much you can do with these gorgeous stamps. Today’s card uses the classic Merry Christmas sentiment.

 

#peggynoe #prettypapercards #peonygarden #poinsettiapetals #stampinup #stampingup #christmas #christmascard #holidaycard

The Whisper White card base for this card is 5-1/2″ x 7-3/4″ and scored at 4-1/4.” The colored piece of designer series paper is 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2,” and the strip of the reverse side of that paper (for the right side) is 1″ x 5-1/2.”

#peggynoe #prettypapercards #peonygarden #poinsettiapetals #stampinup #stampingup #christmas #christmascard #holidaycard

The Whisper White circle was cut using the Painted Labels Dies. It really highlights the sentiment! The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink on a 3/4″ piece of Old Olive card stock. And a few Red Rhinestones were added for bling 🙂

NEW VIDEO: Dove of Hope Fancy Fold Card!

Today’s card is a fancy fold square card with a circle opening on the front, revealing the sentiment behind. It’s such a fun fold, I just had to show it to you! The video below will show you exactly how to make it 🙂

The card base is Whisper White card stock cut at 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ square. Score the square at 4-1/4″ on two adjoining sides, creating four (4) scored squares. Placing the full sheet in front of you, you will cut out the top left square, using either a Paper Trimmer or Paper Snips. In the one remaining square on the lower left side, cut a 2-1/2″ circle using the Layer Circle Dies.

Dove of Hope Peace Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

You could decorate the card in any way you like. To decorate it like this sample, close the card and stamp the sentiment in the center of the circle using Magenta Madness ink. Open the card and stamp the ornament just slightly above the sentiment. Color the ornament using Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils. Stamp a few of the smaller doves on the edges.

Use the Wreath Builder Dies to cut a wreath out of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Adhere to the outer circle using Multipurpose Glue. 

Open the card further and stamp and decorate as you want to. Here I stamped a sentiment “Peace-Joy-Love” on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. I used one of the Hippo & Friends Dies. Stamp the large sentiment in Magenta Madness ink on the circle you cut from the front of the card. Add some of the olive sprigs if desired.

Dove of Hope Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

Stamp the large dove on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Magenta Madness ink. Color the dove with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends. Adhere to the front of the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
