Buffalo Check Rose Thank You Cards!

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

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.

The “Thank You” sentiment is from the Parcels & Petals Cling Stamp Set. Stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Two new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots were added for a bit of bling! 🙂

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!

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! Harvest Hellos Apple Card - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

It’s fall and apples are all over, so why not on cards? The Harvest Hellos Bundle has everything you need to create this darling card with a 3D apple. The Apple Builder Punch does all the work, and the details are in the video tutorial below!

You might be wondering how to mail this card 🙂 Well, you fold the apple flat by separating the slices in half and pressing them down as you slide the card into the envelope.

NEW VIDEO: Create Easy Watercolored Fall Leaves!

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

Hi there! Today’s card has a pretty watercolored leaf background that is SO EASY to make! You could use this technique for all your fall projects, and you could use different fall colors each time! Watch my video tutorial below and learn how to do it!

You know, I’m calling this leaves, but it’s actually a bundle of wheat and other dried fall crops. If you don’t mind though, I’m going to continue to say leaves 🙂 This gorgeous stamp is part of the brand new Tidings All Around stamp set, available on Sept. 4 when our new Holiday Catalog goes live. So what you’re seeing is a sneak peek!!

And these colors are SO PRETTY together! 

The pretty watercolored panel is tied up with Copper Trim and some Leaves Trinkets. You could use anything for the sentiment. Here I used a thank you stamp from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. Do you have this set? It has oodles of small sentiments for every type of occasion. If you don’t have this set, YOU MUST get it. It’s a standard for every stamper.

Stampin' Up! Gather Together Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card is a sneak peek of a few new holiday items. I’m so excited to show you these beautiful new products! So to start off, the cute little pumpkins and the sentiment are from the new Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set. They were cut out with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. This is such a darling fall bundle!

Now these holiday items aren’t available to customers until September 4, 2019, but start your wish list because there’s SO MUCH you are going to love!!

Another new item you’re seeing on this card is the Frosted Frames Dies. These dies created the Soft Sea Foam frame and attached foliage you see above. I added some Vellum leaves punched with the Leaf Punch, and some Whisper White sprigs punched with the Sprig Punch. The pretty dotted paper inside the frame is a sheet of the new Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. Aren’t you getting excited?!?

Video Tutorial: Quick Thank You Notecards!

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Notecard - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Want to make some quick thank you notes? The best way to do it is to grab a set of what I call “magic” Stampin’ Up! Notecards & Envelopes and begin creating. And that’ what I have to show you in my video today!

Here are the “magic” Notecards & Envelopes. What’s so special about them? Well, you don’t have to cut the card stock, for one! They come as 20 pre-made notecards and matching envelopes in a package. They are all cut and scored for you! And, they are made with thick card stock (think better paper). And, you don’t have to purchase the envelopes separately! This is great!

Now you could use any designer series paper. I chose the Woven Threads paper because I’m really liking it these days 🙂 You could leave off the die cuts and just have the sentiment, if you really want to simplify your thank you notes.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Notecards - prettypapercards - stampinup

Punch the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch. I always love a punch ~ quick and easy. That’s what we love, and that’s what helps these cards qualify as “easy” cards!
