Beautiful Lasting Lily!

Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The prettiest stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog is the Lasting Lily Photopolymer set (my opinion!)! This is one of our Distinktive stamps (highly detailed) and has floral images and versatile sentiments. That’s what makes a great stamp set: pretty images and versatile sayings!

Today’s card was made for a dear friend of mine who recently lost her mother. The lily was fussy cut and lifted up on Stampin’ Dimensionals above a panel embossed with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (one of my favorites!).

This lily is SO striking! I couldn’t believe how gorgeous it looked stamped on the envelope!!

The sentiment was stamped with Highland Heather ink and cut with one of the NEW Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies! Remember, stamp FIRST and then cut with the die. That way you can center your sentiment on the rectangle 🙂

Chicken Wire Thank You Cards :-)

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Thank You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

That sounds funny, doesn’t it — “chicken wire thank you notes”? But that’s what they are!!! I really like these Chicken Wire Elements and am trying to use them every chance I get!

Stampin' Up! Chicken Wire Thank You - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For today’s card I cut a portion of one sheet of chicken wire and affixed it over a panel watercolored with Old Olive ink and an Aqua Painter.

The plaid “Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper” has both Old Olive and Night of Navy stripes, so I used those for my ink colors. The sentiment is stamped with Night of Navy ink.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe Fall Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you like coffee? I LOVE coffee! And, I LOVE this set! It’s fun and cute. There’s so much you can do with it! I used both the stamp set and the framelits. You can make short cups and tall cups and add the whipping cream stamp. There’s a straw and a little tag — lots of fun!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Grapefruit Grove - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card features some items from the suite. The main item on this card is the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder! Can you see the deep impressions made in the new Grapefruit Grove card stock? This is a very pretty embossing folder and it’s part of the suite.

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Grapefruit Grove - prettypapercards - stampinup

The Share What You Love designer series paper is thick and one side of each sheet of two-sided paper is pearlized! You can see it in the photos if you look close. Pictures just don’t do this paper justice. You will be blown away when you see it!!

Stampin' Up! Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love - prettypapercards - stampinup

I’ve added a few Vellum leaves punched with the leaf punch, and the sentiment is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.

I just love it when Stampin’ Up! releases a whole suite of products early – the month before the annual catalog comes out. It’s such a treat to see new things and get your hands on them! You will have your choice of three different bundles in the suite – with a bundle for beginning stampers all the way to a bundle for advanced stampers. There’s a bundle for everyone! 

Ok, so tomorrow’s the day, right? In the meantime, be sure you don’t miss the retired items and clearance items. Great deals over there!
