Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

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.

Fall Wreath Thank You Card!

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

Today’s card is a fun 3″ x 3″ square card that looks so nice with a wreath on it! And the All Around Wreath Dies are perfect! This particular wreath die is so pretty, I just love it!

Stampin' Up! Wreath Thank You Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

The card base is 4″ x 8,” scored at 4.” The first layer is a piece of Purple Posy card stock embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The wreath was cut from Terracotta Tile card stock. This color looks so striking against the Purple Posy! The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and it fits perfectly inside the wreath.

The additional leaves and branches are cut with some of the other dies from this set. They were slipped in under the leaves of the wreath and affixed with some Multipurpose Glue. And to finish off the card is a pretty bow tied from Magnolia Lane Linen Ribbon.

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.
