It uses the Curvy Dies, the Classic Christmas 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper, and my favorite Pine Tree Punch. The sentiment is from another favorite, the For Unto Us Stamp Set.

Winter Holiday Card for GDP #271!

Handmade holiday card created using Stampin' Up! Joy Dies and Pine Tree Punch; designed by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #joydies #pinetreepunch #stampinup #holidaycard

A sparkly forest of trees during the holidays, that’s what this card represents. The Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for the scene. The Shaded Spruce background color is dark and rich and draws us into the depths of the forest.

My card is inspired by this week’s Global Design Project Challenge ~ a winter holiday. The icons on the theme board include a Christmas tree, so I included trees on my card, trees punched with the Pine Tree Punch.

Handmade holiday card created using Stampin' Up! Joy Dies and Pine Tree Punch; designed by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #joydies #pinetreepunch #stampinup
The trees were punched from Shimmery White cardstock, a cardstock that works very well with watercoloring. After 5 trees were punched, each tree was watercolored on the back and the front with Shaded Spruce ink using the largest of the Water Painters. After allowing the trees to dry, fold them in half and burnish the folds with a Bone Folder.

A circle was cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies. The circle was lightly stamped with a dot stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set using Shaded Spruce inl. Adhere the circle to the card base with Multipurpose Glue. Then adhere the folded trees a shown using Multipurpose Glue. Place a large rhinestone from the Basic Rhinestone Jewels atop each tree.

The word “Joy” was cut from Silver Foil using the Joy Dies. The word was adhered to the designer series paper using tiny dots of Multipurpose Glue. Right now these Joy Dies are ON SALE AT 30% OFF!!

The dies are part of the Giant Year-End Closeout Sale – what a great price!

Handmade card using the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #trimmingthetown #trimmingthetownpaper #holidaycard

Are you like me – still making a few last minute holiday cards? I created my last few cards by using ONLY the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and a die set. And, these cards don’t even need to be stamped! 

Handmade card using the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #trimmingthetown #trimmingthetownpaper #holidaycards

This Designer Series Paper has everything you need! A few of the pieces have houses and churches and winter town scenes. And one piece has lots of holiday sentiments in several different languages. I’ve simply snipped out the sentiments I wanted with my Paper Snips Scissors and adhered them with Foam Adhesive Strips. This raises them up so that you can really see them! And the best thing is that the paper is ON SALE!!

The die-cut label that you see behind the house and tree in the card above was cut using the fabulous Celebration Labels Dies. I love these dies and am so sad they are retiring 🙁 BUT, they are currently on sale for HALF PRICE! Wow!

With this beautiful paper all you need to do is create your own winter wonderland! Use one of the sheets with mountains, cut out a house and a tree, and you have a beautiful scene!Handmade card uses the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #trimmingthetown #trimmingthetowndesignerpaper #holidaycards

Christmas Partridge Tag, Card & Gift Box!

Partridge in a Pear Tree Card created with the Stampin' Up!Arrange a Wreath Bundle designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #partridgeinapeartree #peggynoe #arrangeawreath #stampinupChristmas #tags

And a partridge in a pear tree! Do you know the Twelve Days of Christmas song? When I saw this partridge in the Arrange a Wreath Bundle, I immediately thought of this song ~ and I just had to make something featuring this cute little partridge. As it turns out, I made three things: a tag, a card, and a gift box! They all use basically the same items.

Each of these three items use the tag. Make three tags. Use one as a tag, one on a card, and one to decorate a Mini Pizza Box. Tags are so versatile! To create the tag, start with a 4″ x 2-1/2″ piece of the Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Cherry Cobbler. Top that with a 2″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. Punch a hole at the center top and run through a piece of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon, tying in a knot.

Partridge in a Pear Tree created with the Stampin' Up!Arrange a Wreath Bundle designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #partridgeinapeartree #peggynoe #arrangeawreath #stampinupChristmas

On top of the Plush Poinsettia Paper add some Gold Metallic Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack wrapped in circles and secured under a Stampin’ Dimensional. With the Forever Flourishing Dies, cut a sprig of leaves from Garden Green cardstock and also adhere over the gold trim with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Stamp the partridge on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Crumb Cake ink; cut out using the Wreath Builder Dies. Adhere over the other Dimensionals to cover them.

Stamp the sentiment from the Arrange a Wreath Stamp Set onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink. Punch out with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.Tuck under the top right edge of the sprig of leaves and secure with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Partridge in a Pear Tree Card created with the Stampin' Up!Arrange a Wreath Bundle designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #partridgeinapeartree #peggynoe #arrangeawreath #stampinupChristmas

For the card, begin with a standard 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card base scored at 4-1/4″ and adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. Simply adhere the tag at an angle! You might want to tie the Embroidered Ribbon into a bow.

Partridge in a Pear Tree created with the Stampin' Up!Arrange a Wreath Bundle designed by Peggy Noe prettypapercards.com #partridgeinapeartree #peggynoe #arrangeawreath #stampinupChristmas

To decorate the Mini Pizza Box, create a belly band with a 4-1/2″ x 12″ piece of the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. Score the belly band at 3″ – 4-1/8″ – 7-7/8″ – and 9.” Wrap around the box and secure in the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Do not punch the top of the tag. After securing the belly band around the box, tie a long piece of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon around the belly band and tie a big bow on the front. Tuck the top left corner of the tag up under the bow and secure with glue dots or multipurpose glue.

My Favorite Things Pals Blog Hop!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects showing “My Favorite Things” from any of the two current catalogs or the upcoming catalog in January. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Handmade card using the Stampin' Up! Forever Flourishing Dies and the Joy Dies designed by Peggy Noe from prettypapercards.com #peacecard #foreverflourishingdies #stampinup

This is a slimline card measuring 8″ x 9″ and scored at 4″. It uses three of my favorite things: the Forever Flourishing Dies, the Joy Dies, and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper. It was fun to think of my favorite things in any catalog. The Forever Flourishing Dies and the Forever Greenery Paper are from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Handmade card using the Stampin' Up! Forever Flourishing Dies and the Joy Dies designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com

Here I’ve used two different leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing set, cut from Pear Pizzaz and Pretty Peacock cardstock. The Pear Pizzaz leaves are layered on top of the Pretty Peacock leaves. They are offset just a bit, and glued together with Multipurpose Glue. A few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels are added on the leaves.

The Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous. I remember when I first saw it at an On Stage Conference, I was blown away. And I still feel the same way. Here a 3-3/4″ x 8-3/4″ piece is layered on the card base after some Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon was adhered to the back to look like gift wrap. The leaves were layered over the intersection of the ribbon and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The word “Peace” was cut using the Joy Dies. This is a multilayered word cut out of Real Red cardstock 5 times and Gold Foil 1 time. Then all six words were layered on one another with the Gold Foil at the top, and adhered with tiny dots of Multipurpose Glue. The layered word was then adhered to the card using Multipurpose Glue.

To finish off the card, a double bow was tied using Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog and adhered to the leaves using Mini Glue Dots.

Handmade Stampin' Up! Floral Art Gallery Christmas Card by Peggy Noe of Prettypapercards.com #floralart #fineartfloral #Christmascard #stampinup

This is a two-step stamp set. It’s so interesting to see the beautiful flower that results from stamping twice, some areas are darker, some lighter, and the stamps leave some areas white. Isn’t the flower gorgeous?

The inks used on this card are Shaded Spruce, Real Red, and Cherry Cobbler. The card base is ‘Shaded Spruce cardstock stamped tone-on-tone with another floral image from the set in Shaded Spruce ink. The second layer is a sheet of dotted Classic Christmas designer series paper, and the third layer is Whisper White cardstock stamped with the beautiful flower. An additional flower was stamped and cut out with the coordinating dies. It was then adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional over the other flower to add even more dimension.

The sentiment is from the Warm Hugs stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock. It was then cut out with a new label die from the new coordinating Floral Gallery Dies. I can tell I’m going to be using the labels in this die set a lot!
