I hope you’re ready to make this holiday season magical, because the Christmastime Is Here Suite is, well . . . here! This exclusive, limited-time collection of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season.

I’m so excited to show you a preview of this suite today. It will be available on November 1st and, as you can see, it’s over the top gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! Christmastime - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

The Christmastime is Here Suite includes:

  • One photopolymer stamp set
  • One cling stamp set
  • One set of coordinating dies
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon
  • Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots
  • AND, a new Charming Rose Bracelet

On today’s card I’ve used a piece of the specialty designer series paper on top of a Whisper White card base. This pattern has a deep Cherry Cobbler background with a beautiful gold foil pattern on it. I’ve used the Christmas Rose Cling Stamp Set stamped in Versamark Ink on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and heat embossed in White Embossing Powder. Then I watercolored the stamped image using an Aqua Painter and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Stampin' Up! Frosted Foliage - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup
The winter holidays are so wonderful! And Stampin’ Up! has lots of gorgeous products for the winter! Today’s card uses the Frosted Foliage Bundle and some amazing new gold ink to convey warm winter wishes.

Stampin' Up! Frosted Foliage Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The Frosted Frames Dies that are a part of this bundle have cut the – kind of wild – foliage on the card out of Gold Foil and Pretty Peacock card stock. These two colors, along with Very Vanilla card stock, make a yummy color combination.

Today’s card begins with a Very Vanilla card stock base. A 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock was stamped with the snowflake stamp from the Frosted Foliage stamp, using the new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad (ooh, gorgeous!). That piece was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Glue. A 4-3/4″ x 3″ piece of Pretty Peacock card stock was also stamped in the same manner and adhered to the Very Vanilla piece.

Stampin' Up! Frosted Foliage - Peggy Noe - stampinup
The sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The foliage was then adhered with Multipurpose Glue to the left of the sentiment. A bow was tied from the ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS 3/8″ Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon.

Toile Tidings Wreath!

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Wreaths are classic for all seasons and the Toile Tidings Suite has several options. Today’s card is a 4″ x 4″ square with a wreath made of leaves die cut using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This card is cased from the sample on page 9 of the current Holiday Catalog. The Whisper White 8″ x 4″ card base was scored at 4.” A 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of the Real Red gingham sheet from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper was adhered with Multipurpose Glue to the front of the card, as a background for the wreath. The Garden Green die-cut leaves are overlapped to form a circle and adhered to one another with Multipurpose Glue. 

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

A pretty bow of Garden Green Double-Stitched Ribbon was attached to the wreath with a few Mini Glue Dots. The sentiment from the Tidings All Around Set was stamped on Whisper White card stock in Garden Green ink, and cut with a banner die from the Christmas Cardinal Dies. The dots stamp from the Tidings All Around set was stamped a few times on the sentient piece in Real Red ink. Finally, some Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots were added to the wreath as holiday berries 🙂

This card could be created in different colors for fall, summer, spring, Easter, ANY holiday. I just love the entire Toile Tidings Suite Bundle! Did you know that you can order the entire suite bundle including two stamp sets, two die sets, paper and ribbon? It’s an amazing suite and one you will use for years to come!

Thank you so much for stopping by today 🙂  Happy stamping!

Copper Christmas Tree Card!

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card is a stepped up traditional! Traditional cards have trees and say Merry Christmas, but this card has bling!!! Most of the sparkle comes from the Copper Foil embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder ~ I love it!!

Stampin' Up! Plaid Christmas - Peggy Noe - stampinup
The trees were punched with the Pine Tree Punch from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. This is 6″ x 6″ plaid paper with thin gold lines running through it. You get 48 sheets of paper in one package! Here 3 trees were punched and the center tree was placed a bit higher on the card so it stands out.

The ribbon used here is one of my new favorites, the Classic Weave Ribbon. It’s Very Vanilla with Copper lettering and it’s so rich. You don’t need much, just about 6″ to tie around.

A Sweet Cup of Christmas!

Stampin' Up! Sweet Cup of Christmas - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the new Holiday Catalog, a Cup of Christmas ~ I love it! I love this sentiment especially. And, I love the new reversible stamps! Have you ever heard of reversible stamps? They were recently developed by Stampin’ Up! Here’s a fun video explaining all about them:

Aren’t they amazing? For today’s project I’ve only used one of the sides of the stamp. You could easily make a second card tying the bow on the left side of the card and using the reverse side of the stamp!

This great set comes as a bundle at 10% OFF! It’s a great savings for you!

Now, what do you think of this gorgeous candy cane ribbon? It’s called the Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Stripe Ribbon, and it’s just yummy!! It also ties nicely 🙂

Stampin' Up! Cup of Christmas - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The base of the card is Whisper White card stock and the first panel on the card is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock stamped all over in Garden Green ink with a darling little holly stamp from the set!

Stampin' Up! Cup of Christmas Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The sentiment was first stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock in Cherry Cobbler ink. Then it was punched out with the Everyday Label Punch. Also punch a scrap piece of Garden Green card stock with the same punch. Cut the green piece down the center lengthwise (landscape/horizontal version) using your Paper Snips. Cut off the little round circles that are on both the left and the right ends of the tag. Glue the top of the Garden Green piece to the back of the Whisper White stamped label, allowing it to show above the tag. Do the same for the bottom of the tag. See the photos of the card as examples. Adhere the tag to the Soft Sea Foam piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

After you have stamped the mug in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the dies from the bundle, tie it to the bow as shown with a bit of Whisper White Baker’s Twine ~ and you are done! Just looking at this card makes me want a Pumpkin Spiced Latte! 🙂
