The Remarkable Inkbig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “Sale-A-Bration”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Pretty Paper Cards,  or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe at Pretty Paper Cards.

I’m so happy to be taking part in today’s blog hop!  To celebrate our theme, my card today has LOTS of Sale-a-Bration items!  Just for fun I tried to get in as many as I could.  Can you spot them all?

Well, the flowers are from the Avant Garden stamp set.  I stamped three on the Whisper White panel, and then stamped four on another sheet and fussy cut them out to adhere on top of the other flowers.

I gave the flowers little stamen centers using the Botanical Builders Framelits and Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.  I had to get in the fabulous Glimmer Paper!

The lace at the top is stamped from the Delicate Details stamp set.  Don’t you just love lace?  I do, and I love that I can add it anywhere on my card using the stamps in this set!

The happy birthday banner is from the Any Occasion stamp set.  This set is totally fun!  You get the “clothes line” stamp with lots of words and phrases  to hang on the clothes line 🙂

So, I count four different Sale-a-Bration items, what about you?  Did you catch them all?  Which items do you already have?  Remember, these Sale-a-Bration items are only available through March 31st, so get them while you can!!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog, Pretty Paper Cards, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Pretty Thank You Tags!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

When my customers place an order with me they always get something special and handmade from me. This month they are receiving a pretty thank you tag like the ones above!

Stampin'Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Thank You Tags, handstamped, #peggynoe #prettypapercards

These tags are CASE’d from a sample I saw in a Stampin’ Up! magazine.  As demonstrators we receive a bi-monthly magazine with ideas for great creations and I saw this tag and loved it.  I changed it up just a bit and used a different washi tape.

The pretty flowers are from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Avant Garden.  You may notice that one of the tags is lighter than the other one.  That’s because I stamped the flowers in Archival Black ink on one tag, and used Pear Pizzaz ink on the other one.  It really gives a different look, doesn’t it?  Then I colored in the flowers with some Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum ink.

So, don’t you love these flowers?  Well, the only way to get this stamp set is by placing a $50 order with Stampin’ Up!  And, here’s the best part, when you place that order, the Avant Garden stamp set is…FREE! Yes, totally FREE!  That’s the wonderful thing about Sale-a-Bration:  FREE PRODUCTS!

If you want this stamp set, just CLICK HERE to go straight to my store, choose $50 in fabulous products (before shipping and taxes), and add this item (Number 143272) to your order.  It will be FREE!!

May I suggest for your order:  the 2″ Circle Punch (Item No. 133782) for $18, the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (Item No. 133324) for $23, Archival Basic Black Ink (Item No. 140931) for $7, and the Floral Bouquet Designer Washi Tape (Item No. 141664) for $5.  That adds up to $53 !!!  Add the Avant Garden set FOR FREE!! and you’re good to go!

Thank you for stopping by today, and have fun shopping!

Avant Garden Birthday!

Avant Garden envie

These beautiful flowers are part of a gorgeous stamp set called Avant Garden.  What does that mean anyway…”avant” garden?

Avant Garden L

Well, I looked it up and “avant” is French for “original and innovative,” “culturally or stylistically advanced.” This is a pretty innovative and stylistically advanced set of flower stamps, don’t you think?

Avant Garden R cuThe color palate for our “advanced” garden is bright and bold:  Melon Mambo, Emerald Envy and Black.  These are winter colors, just what we need in cold weather 🙂

Avant Garden cu

And the best thing about this great stamp set is that it’s FREE!  Yes, FREE!  During Sale-a-Bration, for every $50 purchase you can choose one FREE item from the exclusive Sale-a-bration Catalog!  And this stamp set is one of the FREE items!

Avant Garden holding

I really love this set.  All the stamps on this card are from the Avant Garden set, except the border stamp, that’s from the Tin of Cards set.

Pretty Pointer:  This border stamp from the Tin of Cards is an amazing stamp!  Use it everywhere:  on the lower edge of the inside of cards, on an envelope – front and/or back, and on the edges of cards!  This is one way to “step-up” any card!
