For this card I used the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper in Mango Melody as a background. Stripes and circles always look good together!

Item No. 147820  $11.00    ORDER by clicking the photo below!

The red used in the paper and on my card is Cherry Cobbler. It’s a classic deep red and I love using it for the holidays!

Pretty Pointer: To give a sentiment a different look, trim closely around the words with your Paper Snips. The sentiment becomes much more versatile because it will fit in smaller spots! Try it!

Behind the sentiment you see a strip of our Chicken Wire Elements and some 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. I’ve actually pulled off a few layers of burlap from this strip to use on another project, so the strip you see here is not quite 5/8″.

A few Metallic Sequins and a bow of the Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine finish off the card.

And We Have A Winner!

Stampin' Up! Love What You Do Thank You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card combines two of my favorites: the Love What You Do stamp set and the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper!

Stampin' Up! Love What You Do - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Who doesn’t love frosted everything? This card uses the Frosted Floral dsp, the Frosted Epoxy Droplets, the Pearlized Doilies, and a bit of Shimmer Paint on the sentiment piece! Wow!

Stampin' Up! Thank You Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

You can’t really the Shimmer Paint, it’s hard to photograph. But it is there! The flowers here were stamped with Blackberry Bliss and then I pulled the ink to the center of the petals with an Aqua Painter.

Stampin' Up! Fall Leaf Card - Prettypapercards - stampinup

My favorite season has always been fall ~ I love it ~ the leaves, the colors, the end of hot weather (whew!). And fall cards are so much fun to make! 

Stampin' Up! Fall Leaf Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For my card today I’ve used the Falling for Leaves Bundle from the new Holiday Catalog. It’s the perfect set for all your fall cards!

Stampin' Up! Fall Leaves - Prettypapercards - stampinup

This card uses some non-traditional colors that I think are so pretty together…

Stampin' Up! Detailed Leaves - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Technique Tip:
To make the special background panel on this card, use Petal Pink card stock and the embossing dies that are part of the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies. Emboss the leaves all over the panel and then sponge with some Bright Copper Shimmer Paint (love this stuff!).

Stampin' Up! Falling For Leaves - Prettypapercards - stampinup


Most of the leaves have been cut with the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies. The set comes with 6 different leaf dies. There is also a lacy horizontal die – I used this on Copper Foil and tucked it under the sentiment. A bit of Blackberry Bliss Twine and a few Metallic Sequins finish off the card.
