Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered - Peggy Noe - stampinup
Hooray! All month long I’m celebrating my 6th Anniversary with Stampin’ Up! And I just had to make this congratulations card to give you a sneak peek of a fun new Host Stamp Set that will be available in the new Annual Catalog on June 1st. I love this new stamp set, it’s SO cute!

This is me being lifted up by the balloons, full of joy that I’ve spent 6 years with this wonderful company! I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast!!

The balloons are each watercolored with the new 2018-2020 In Colors. I want you to have lots of opportunities to see how beautiful these colors are. I tried to color a few of them both dark and light so you can get the full spectrum of color 🙂

An Amazing Card!

Stampin' Up! - Amazing Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Hi there! Today’s card is for a good friend who is moving. She likes yellow and orange, and gold, so I created a card for her using those colors 🙂

Ok, so I love the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (a free Sale-a-Bration item!). I really like the die-cut word “amazing.” It’s delicate and curvy and looks great on any project. And cut out in Whisper White it even looks a bit lacy, don’t you think? 

Stampin' Up! Amazing You Special Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Pretty Pointer:  You can use Stampin’ Blends Markers with any stamped image. Be sure to use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink or heat embossing to stamp/set your image. This prevents the alcohol in the markers from blurring the stamped image. 

Here I’ve stamped a flower from the Amazing You stamp set (also free during Sale-a-Bration) with the Memento Ink and then colored it in with the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. Behind the flowers are a few vellum leaves punched out with the Leaf Punch.

For the base of the card I’ve used Whisper White card stock topped with some Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. This acetate is gold on one side and silver on the other.  Then I’ve used a Shimmery White panel that’s been watercolored with Daffodil Delight ink.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Thinlits - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For this card, I used a sheet of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Those little dots you see are silver foil and are a part of the beautiful paper, and wow are they pretty! I used some Bermuda Bay card stock for the “amazing” sentiment, and some star sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment to add more bling! Aren’t these colors gorgeous together? The paper color is Calypso Coral and the Bermuda Bay (blue) looks striking against it.


Celebrate You Thinlits – Item No. 146840

Sparkly Flourish Congratulations!


This card is for a special friend of mine who has just received a wonderful professional honor.  I wanted to make her a really special card that conveys my happiness and joy for her … so what else but gold, gold, gold and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper?

Peggy 2

The gold dotted card stock is from the beautiful Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  The beautiful flourish is cut with the Flourish Thinlits and the sentiment was cut with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
