Sneak Peek: Lovely You Z-Fold Card!

Lovely You Peggy Noe

Today’s card is another Sneak Peek. The NEW Lovely You Bundle pairs beautifully with the Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, and a fun Z-fold card shows them all off! I’ve created two cards for you so that you can see how the card looks in two different patters of the designer series paper.

People love to receive cards that are different and have interesting folds. You could use this card with any sentiment for any occasion, and the recipient will love it!  (Personally, I’m just crazy about this sentiment…”wildly grateful” … from the Lovely You stamp set.)

Here’s a peek at the card completely opened up.

SNEAK PEEK: Life’s a Beautiful Journey!

World of Good Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The new suite called World of Good is different, and fun, and pretty, and imaginative. It’s interesting and that’s why I like it. It causes you to dream. It reminds me of an old world and a new world. And what I’m showing you today is just the tip of the iceberg of what can be done with this suite.

World of Good Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

For today’s card I’ve used a piece of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper. It looks like an old letter or manuscript. And I love the inkwell and the feather pen. I really don’t know much about the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but for some reason I picture this type of pen and ink 🙂

World of Good Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The script was created by running a piece of Very Vanilla card stock through the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and then tearing off a piece the size that I wanted. The piece was then sponged with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink to bring out the words and to make it look “old.” The left and right edges were then rolled to give the look of an old scroll.

NEW VIDEO: 3 Ways to Create a Stamped Flower!

Tasteful Touches 3 Flowers Peggy Noe
Today’s card and video show you three different ways to create a stamped flower. This is another sneak peek of the fabulous NEW Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set that I am totally loving! It will be available NEXT WEEK starting June 3rd ~ yippee! And the flower in this set is just so pretty, I had to play with it!

Tasteful Touches Pretty Paper Cards

This flower was lightly watercolored with an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White paper. The background for the flower was watercolored on the Stampin’ Up! Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Take a look at the video to see how I did it:

Below is a close up of the three ways of stamping discussed in the video. The first row of flowers was simply stamped with Merry Merlot ink on Whisper White card stock. The second row of flowers was stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then watercolored with Merry Merlot ink and an Aqua Painter. On the third row, both flowers were stamped on Shimmery White card stock with Merry Merlot ink and then lightly watercolored using an Aqua Painter, just pulling the ink inward. Isn’t it amazing the different looks produced by each method?

Here is the new stamp set that is featured in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
