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 🙂

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!

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! 🙂

A Darling Little Snow Girl!!

Stampin' Up! Let it Snow - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Oh my goodness, I love this darling little snow girl! She’s all over the Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, and she’s SO happy! When I first saw her I totally giggled because she’s so cute. Well, you know I had to make a card with that sweet joyful face! 

Stampin' Up! Let it Snow Christmas Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

This is an easy card to make. Begin with a Whisper White card base. Wrap some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Let It Snow paper. I chose a pattern that contrasted with and set off the snow girl!

Stampin' Up! Let it Snow - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The snow girl was cut out of the paper with a stitched label die from the Wild Rose Dies. On the back of the die-cut piece I’ve adhered some Silver Metallic Thread. To learn how to do this, watch my video HERE. Adhere this piece over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment here is from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and was stamped in Real Red on Whisper White card stock. I just love this card, it says joy, doesn’t it? Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below 🙂

Sneak Peek: A Beautiful Toile Christmas!

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas Card by Pretty Paper Cards - stammpinup

Woo – Hoo! A sneak peek Christmas card using lots of new goodies from the Holiday Catalog! This catalog goes live in a bit over a week (on September 4th) and I’ve been really excited to show you this card!

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas by Pretty Paper Cards

Today’s card uses the Toile Christas Bundle. Now I know you don’t see any toile here 🙂 That’s in the pretty Designer Series Paper. I’ll be showing you lots that later. But for today’s card, I’ve used a pretty winter foliage stamp from the set, inked and stamped in the new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink onto a piece of Merry Merlot card stock. This piece was then splattered in some white ink mixed with water, and then some Noble Peacock Rhinestones were added for more bling!

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas Wishes by Peggy Noe - stampinup

Behind the Merry Merlot piece is a panel of Gold Foil dry embossed with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder. Between the two pieces are some winter foliage die cuts from the Frosted Frames Dies. And behind all this is a piece of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper in Pretty Peacock.

Sneak Peeks from My Fun Weekend!

Card of a red cardinal setting on a table

This past weekend my wonderful team of local Sweet Stampers came over for a get together at my house. We made cards and 3D items, got favors and prizes, we talked and laughed, we exchanged swaps, and we looked at lots of the new products from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog! Oh, and we ate cake and watermelon and strawberries 🙂 (My team members who don’t live locally will be receiving their goodies in the mail!)

My friend and fellow demonstrator, Robin Daus, made some pretty cards to show off a few of the gorgeous new suites in the Holiday Catalog. I thought you might like to see her creations! The cards posted today were all created by Robin.
