Handmade Card using the Hand Penned and Sweet Strawberry stamp sets by Stampin' Up! designed by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #peggynoe #prettypapercards #sweetstrawberrystampset #hand-pennedstampset #stampinup #stampingup #thankyoucard

Today’s card is pink and sweet and oh so pretty.The base of this card is Basic White cardstock covered with a sheet of Hand-Penned Petals Designer Series Paper.

Then a piece of Basic White cardstock was blended in the center with Polished Pink ink and Blending Brushes to create a nice light pink background. The large flower from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set was inked with Polished Pink ink and then stamped off, before stamping over the blended area.

Using the Tailor-Made Tag Dies I cut two different sized tags, one from the Be Dazzling Paper and a smaller tag from Polished Pink cardstock. On the smaller tag I stamped the sentiment (from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set) in Versamark ink, covered it with White Emboss Powder and melted it with the Heat Gun.

The tags were tied together with some gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels were used to add more bling!

This stamp set has no sentiments, so you can use any sentiment you like or need! For my card today, I wanted a thank you card and pulled out the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I love the “thank you” sentiment, the size and the font are perfect for my card. See how I created the card in the video below.

 

To add some fun to this card, I used the Meadow Dies to cut a butterfly from some In Color Shimmer Vellum. Then In Color Jewels added just the right bling! 🙂

Tailor Made Thank You Ribbon Card! (GDP307)

Handmade Thank You Card made with the Tailored Tags Dies from Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #tailoredtags #tailoredtagsdies #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #sweeticecream #sweeticecreamstampset #thankyou #thankyoucard #patternparty #paperribbon

Today’s card uses some of my favorite patterns ever! I love black and white buffalo check and I love dotted paper, and this card has both!

This design highlights the sentiment by placing it on a Pale Papaya tag. The black ink against this color is striking, and the tag die really makes the sentiment stand out. The tag was cut using the Tailor Made Tag Dies. I love these dies and will be using them even more as the holidays approach.

For this card I’ve used my favorite black & white buffalo checked paper (from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper) to form some paper ribbon. Here’s a video tutorial showing how to make paper ribbon:

 

The “thank you” sentiment is from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I pulled this sentiment out because it’s fairly large, so it makes a statement, and I really like the font. Many times when making a card I’ll just find a sentiment I really like, no matter what stamp set it’s from 🙂

My inspiration for my card came from this week’s Global Design Project Challenge. It’s all about the word “thanks.”

Feels Like Home: One Stamp Set ~ Three Ways!

Handmade thank you card using the Feels Like Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #feelslikehome #feelslikehomestampset #thankyou #thanlyoucard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Have you seen the Feels Like Home stamp set? I love the scene in this stamp ~ it reminds me of a doorway in Paris, France. I’ve never been to France but I’ve imagined in my mind that a doorway in Paris might look like this 🙂 What does this scene remind YOU of?

Handmade thank you card using the Feels Like Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #feelslikehome #feelslikehomestampset #thankyou #thanlyoucard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #polishedpink

Today I have for you three different cards all created with the same stamp set! This card was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Then I colored in the scene with light watercoloring. What I call “light watercoloring” is using a small bit of water from a Water Painter and some ink from the ink pad. I firmly press together the back of the closed pad, which adds some ink into the inside lid of the pad. Then I add to the lid a small – very small – bit of water from the Water Painter and dot the brush tip of the Water Painter on the paper.

Here’s another card that is simpler than simple, but with a big impact! For this card you simply ink the stamp in Misty Moonlight ink and stamp it on Basic White cardstock. The stamp is so beautiful and the ink so vibrant, that you don’t need to do anything else! It’s framed in Misty Moonlight cardstock to give it a pop.

And the final card is another light watercolor, this time in different colors, and with the full sentiment stamped at the top of the card. This stamp set looks great with any colors. And, did you know, it’s FREE! It’s true, this stamp set is a free gift that you can choose with a minimum $50 order during Sale-a-Bration. This is why I love Sale-a-Bration…free stuff!

As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

. Handmade Fall Card made with the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #prettypumpkin #prettypumpkinbundle #prettypumpkinstampset #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #fallcard #pumpkincard

Can you guess my favorite season? Yes, it’s fall! I love the colors, the coolness, the coziness, the football, fires in the fireplace… all of it! Here in Southern California it’s usually pretty hot through November. But that doesn’t deter me 🙂 I still get out my fall decorations and make fall cards!

My card today combines some wonderful fall colors and themes that bring us right into this season. To begin a card like this, I pull out all the papers with the appropriate colors to determine how to use them. Here the first layer is a wood-look piece of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Then there’s a layer of a print from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. I watercolored a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with coordinating colors and, when dry, I stamped the piece in Crumb Cake ink with some stamps from the Very Versailles set.

On top of this background, leaves and pumpkins, a sunflower die and coneflowers have been added to pull in the various themes of fall. The sentiment from the Season’s Blessings stamp set is heat embossed on a piece of Old Olive cardstock and cut with a label die from the Hippos & Friends die set.

To finish off the card, some fun Black & White Gingham Ribbon was added, along with a few sparkly jewels!

Nature’s Harvest Thank You!

Handmade Fall Card made with the Nature's Harvest stamp set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #coneflower #coneflowercard #nature'sHarvest #nature'sharveststampset #fallcard #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #prettypapercards.com

This new stamp set has captured my interest, and I really like it! These upside-down daisies are just cute! Actually I found out they are called coneflowers. I challenged myself to “case the catalog,” and chose this card from page 56 of the new Mini Catalog.

Casing means copying. You can copy everything about another card or just certain aspects. This time I copied almost everything. The card base is Soft Succulent cardstock and the next layer is a panel from the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper. It’s been distressed with Paper Snips.

The coneflowers were stamped in Crumb Cake ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock and then colored in with Stampin’ Blends. The piece was splattered with a Black Stampin’ Blend using the cap against the brush end to create the splatter. Then the piece was cut with a circle die from the Layering Circle Dies and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

One thing I really like about this stamp set is the sentiments and the font. For this card I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out with a label die from the Pretty Pillow Box Dies.

The Very Vanilla Lace was tied in a bow and adhered with a glue dot; the sentiment was then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the bow. This was such a fun card to “case.”  Why don’t you case a card from the catalog? Give it a try!
