Lots of Heart Valentine Banner & Card!

Handmade Valentine Banner using the Stampin' Up! Lots of Heart Bundle designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #peggynoe #lotsofheart #valentinebanner #prettypapercards

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I like to put a few heart-themed decorations up, and for this year I’ve created this fun heart banner. A friend of mine made one for her craft room and I loved it ~ so I decided to make my own!

Handmade Valentine Banner using the Stampin' Up! Lots of Heart Bundle designed by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #peggynoe #lotsofheart #valentinebanner

Each individual “flag” was made with a 4″ x 3″ piece of True Love Designer Series Paper. I chose the sheet with the black polka dots on a white background. At the top of each flag is a sweet little scalloped edge piece that was cut using the Stitched Be Mine Dies. Throughout these projects the colors Magenta Madness and Real Red are alternated with the black and white.

The ribbons add so much, and Stampin’ Up! has beautiful ribbons! Here I’ve used Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon, 5/8″ Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, and 3/8″ Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon. They’ve been attached with Stampin’ Seal to the center of each flag and looped at the top. Ribbons were also tied in a group on each end of the banner. And to string the banner together, I’ve used Real Red Stitched Ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

You can also use the flags on the front of a card!! Here I’ve used a Basic White card base and added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock that’s been embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. After embossing, I added Magenta Madness ink with one of our new Blender Brushes.

It’s Time to Make Valentines!

Handmade Valentine card made with Stampin' Up! Always in my Heart Bundle, created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #valentinecard #alwaysinmyheart #peggynoe

Yes, it’s time to start making Valentines! So it’s close to mid-January and we need time to make the cards and mail them, right?

Handmade Valentine card made with Stampin' Up! Always in my Heart Bundle, created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #valentinecard #alwaysinmyheartstampset #prettypapercards

For this card I’ve used the new Always in my Heart Bundle. This bundle includes the Always in my Heart Stamp Set and the Floral Heart Dies. Things I love about these dies…the fun die that cuts the strips of hearts. Here I’ve cut three strips and adhered them across the Real Red card stock piece with dots of Multipurpose Glue.

The other thing I love about these dies is the banner that goes across the heart. This is a great banner because it adds the score lines that create the folds on either side, and the folds lift the center part of the banner up above the heart.

The heart here is made using Blushing Bride card stock cut with the Stitched Be Mine dies. This die set has a large heart with a stitched scalloped edge.

Darling Valentines for Little Ones!

Children's Valentines Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

Today I’m showing you the Valentine cards I made for my niece and nephew. They are little, ages 2 and 5, and I know they are going to love getting these in the mail 🙂 There are two cards, one for a boy and one for a girl. 

Dinoraur Valentine Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

My nephew loves dinosaurs, so the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper is perfect. I chose to use one of the papers that had pinks and reds for Valentine’s Day. This card is easy to make, as you simply cut out one of the dinosaurs with Paper Snips and adhere him onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp a piece of Whisper White card stock with the sentiment from the From My Heart stamp set using Lovely Lipstick ink. Punch out the sentiment with the smooth heart punch in the Heart Punch Pack. Punch another heart from Pool Party card stock using the same punch. Glue them together at an angle using Multipurpose Glue, then attach them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Little Ladybug Valentine Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

For my niece I made a ladybug card…and of course she had to have pink wings!! For this card I used the Little Ladybug stamp set and Stampin’ Blends. It was so much fun to color! A piece of Lovely Lipstick card stock was punched with the scalloped heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. A piece of Whisper White card stock was stamped with a sentiment from the From My Heart Stamp Set and then punched out with the smooth heart punch. The hearts were glued together with Multipurpose Glue and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m SO excited for my niece and nephew to receive their cards!!

The Best Ever “Love” Card!

Valentine Amour Card Stampin' Up! by Pretty Paper Cards

It’s the month for love, amour, and romance — and today’s card is perfect! You can use this card for Valentine’s Day, weddings, anniversaries, or any loving event 🙂

Valentine Amour Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The standout on this card is the heart made of different colored strips of card stock. Here I’ve used Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Lovely Lipstick, and Cherry Cobbler. 

Pretty Pointer:  To create this heart, start with a 4-1/4″ square of any color card stock (I used Whisper White). Cut 1″ x 4-1/4″ strips of the colors you want in the heart. Adhere the strips horizontally across the square with Multipurpose Glue. When dry, cut with one of the large hearts in the Stitched Be Mine Die set.

Parisian Amour Valentine Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

This card uses the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper that’s FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration. Are you asking where is that Golden Honey paper? Well, it’s the black and white stripe! All of the Golden Honey dsp is backed with a black and white pattern and I love it!

On top of the striped layer is a smaller piece of Vellum card stock that has been embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder. The heart was then adhered to the Vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some leaves and sprigs were punched and tucked under the edges of the heart. The “amour” sentiment was cut from Whisper White card stock using the gorgeous Parisian Dies. And some tiny hearts were cut using one of the dies from the Stitched Be Mine Die set. I glued them arbitrarily around the card and then added some From My Heart Faceted Gems.

Vintage Valentine with a Video Tutorial!

Very Vintage Merci Card by Peggy Noe

Welcome and thank you for stopping by today! Hope you’re ready for a fun Vintage Valentine, because that’s what I’ve been working on! I demonstrated how to make this card last Friday on my Facebook Live. I’ve edited the video and have it below for you!

The Buffalo Check stamp set adds a nice contrast to the red on this card. It’s one of my “basic” stamps, one I can always reach for 🙂

And the Parisian Dies have two great word dies: both “merci” and “amore.” You could use either one. I chose to use “merci” because I have some thank you’s to send to my customers 🙂

Parisian Flourish “Love” Card!

Parisian Flourish Stampin' Up! by Peggy Noe

Today i want you to see the beautiful Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder! It’s part of the Parisian Blossoms Suite and I LOVE it! For today’s card I’ve really tried to show you how pretty it is 🙂

The hearts and the white panel of today’s card are all embossed with the Parisian Flourish folder. On the hearts I’ve sponged color with a sponge dauber to really show off the embossing. On the Petal Pink hearts I used a sponge dauber to add Petal Pink ink, and on the Cherry Cobbler heart I added White Craft ink.

Parisian Blossoms Heart Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

There is a small panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper peeking out on the right side. This paper is gorgeous! In fact, everything in the Parisian Blossoms Suite is fabulous. There are so many more items in this suite ~ you can see them below. If you want to get all of the items, you can order the Parisian Blossoms Suite Bundle!

The sentiment was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock using a die from the Well Written Dies. The word is adhered with tiny dots of Multipurpose Glue to a strip of Whisper White card stock punched with the Classic Label Punch. The whole thing was then attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Parisian Heart Valentine Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

This card would be great as a Valentine card, or a wedding card, or even an anniversary card. You could make several to have on hand during the year 🙂
