Parisian Thank You Card!

Parisian Beauty Merci Card created by Peggy Noe

Today’s card is a French thank you card created with the beautiful Parisian Beauty Bundle! For me this is a “clean and simple card” because there are very few layers and the card has a clean look.

This card uses quite a few products from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Suite on pages14-17 of the 2020 Mini Catalog. The base of the card is made of Petal Pink card stock. The background panel is a piece of the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (ooh-la-la!).

You may notice that I’ve used several different backgrounds for today’s photographs. I’m experimenting and trying out backgrounds. Some colors, like today’s Petal Pink, look better on different backgrounds. I was trying to get the gorgeous pinky-peach color to show up clearly, so I tried several different backgrounds. Which do you like best for this card?

Parisian Beauty Thank You by Peggy Noe

When I was in college I took a lot of French, but today I can hardly remember a word 🙁 But, I do remember “merci”! I just love the word dies, they are what I like to call “an automatic sentiment”! And, this bundle has the prettiest stamp and die for the Eiffel Tower! I’ve heat embossed it with white embossing powder on vellum card stock and cut it out with the die. I think it really makes a statement all by itself.

NEW VIDEO: Create a Painted Poppies Tag & Card!

Thank You Tag Painted Poppies Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

How do you get your ideas of what cards to create? Well sometimes I get my ideas from the fabulous Stampin’ Up! catalogs. There are so many gorgeous cards in the catalogs. In fact, that’s how I decided to create today’s tag! On page 26 of the new 2020 Mini Catalog you will see a banner with a cute tag at the far right. I 

During my Facebook Live last Friday afternoon, I showed how to create this tag, and I showed how you can use it to create a pretty card!

For the card, start with a Whisper White card base. Then add a 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White panel stamped lightly with the larger dotted stamp in the set and Mossy Meadow ink; adhere it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Cut a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2,” adhere also with Dimensionals.

Painted Poppies Thanks by Peggy Noe

I have to tell you, while I was making this card today I was so engrossed and not paying attention to my little dog, Elie. I heard some noise but thought it was my husband. When I finished the card I went to see what she was doing and…here’s what I found.

I mean, look how cute she is! She found a flyer (I must have left it on the floor?) and she shredded it to bits! I know, she wanted my attention 🙂 She got lots of hugs and no punishment.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Now, back to the 2020 Mini Catalog which is available starting tomorrow. It was previously called the “Occasions Catalog” but now we will refer to it as the Mini Catalog. It has stamp sets and great products for Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day, all of the holidays that come around during the first half of the year. And, IT ALL STARTS TOMORROW!!

One of the big suites in the new Mini Catalog is the Peaceful Poppies Suite. To give you a little preview today, I’ve used the Painted Poppies stamp set to watercolor a pretty thank you card. The sentiment is from the coordinating Peaceful Moments stamp set. There is SO much in this suite…2 stamp sets, 2 sets of coordinating dies, ribbon, sequins, etc.!!

Today’s cards are classic with the black and white buffalo checks. Buffalo checks are SO popular right now, and Stampin’ Up! has got you covered. The Buffalo Check Stamp is a wonderful background stamp and it gives you the freedom to create the checks in any color you like! Buffalo checks are a great background for almost anything else you want to do! 

For this card, begin with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Whisper White card base, scored at 4-1/4.” Stamp a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock with the Buffalo Stamp and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Tie some Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the Buffalo Check piece and tie on the front in a pretty bow.

Today I’m using an image from the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper. It looks like a bouquet of roses! The cluster of roses was fussy cut using Paper Snips and raised up on Stampin’ Dimensionals above a piece of Vellum punched out with the Starburst Punch.
