Springtime Foil Meets Southern Serenade!

Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Thank You Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Oh my goodness, the new Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper is AH – MAZ – ING!!! It’s one of the new Sale-a-Bration items, FREE with any $50 order.

You are probably wondering how I colored this foil paper? Well, truthfully, my friend and fellow demonstrator, Robin Daus, did it for me! Ha! She showed me how to do it and it’s easy! You put a piece of the Springtime Foil Paper, foil side up, flat on a paper towel or grid paper. Turn an ink pad upside down in your hand and hold the ink pad above the piece of foil. Starting at one end, lower the ink pad and drag it from one side of the paper across to the other, pressing down so that the ink is deposited on the paper. Do that a few times if needed. Then wipe the foil paper with a clean cloth or paper towel until it looks glossy. That’s it!

You can see from the photo above that it may turn out a bit darker in some areas and lighter in others, and that’s what gives even more texture! Don’t you love it? I’ve used my Berry Burst ink pad for this card. I just love the way it turned out, and all thanks to Robin!

For the sentiment I’ve used the Southern Serenade stamp set. The fonts and sentiments in this set are modern and fun and I really like to use them. I’ve also used a darling flower stamp from the same set.

Hold on to Hope Easter Card!

Stampin'Up! Hold On to Hope - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Happy Monday my friends! I’ve been really liking the new Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and find that I’m using it over and over! Today it created a great textured background for my floral Easter card ~ and I love it in Pool Party blue!

Stampin'Up! Happy Easter Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Of course any Easter card has to have pretty pastels! My color theme came from the triangle sheet of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper that’s layered on top of the basket embossed panel. I just began to build on that with some florals.

The beautiful white cross is really the centerpiece of the card. It’s created by a beautiful die from the Cross of Hope Framelits set. It’s really a classic die set and I’ll be keeping it for a long time 🙂

Sweet Bird and Basket Weave Card!

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Thank You - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The Sale-a-Bration Basket Weave Embossing Folder is going to be a classic. For one thing, it’s carrying over after Sale-a-Bration – that’s good. But the best part is that it adds beautiful texture to any project! For today’s card it forms a nice background for the rest of the card!

Today’s card is for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This is a really fun Tic Tac Toe Board! I ended up using both diagonal lines (Aperature/Gold Silver/Texture and Floral/Gold Silver/Sequins) and the left column (Aperature/Vellume/Floral) and the right column (Sequins/Circle/Texture) on my card! These elements are really easy to use together!

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Thank You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The basket weave is especially appropriate for anything bird related. Doesn’t it make you think of a bird nest? I love the little bird in the Petal Palette Bundle, and here I’ve colored him with Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake Blends. I also gave him a deep blue eye with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend 🙂

Stampin' Up! Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Under the bird is a combination of vellum punched leaves and floral dies cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. White on white and vellum is such a beautiful combination. I love the softness of it. Under the circle “window” is some of the new Sale-a-Bration Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper ~ gorgeous!!

.This paper is WAY MORE beautiful than it looks in this photo. You will love it! So, how do you get some?? It’s easy ~ just place a $50 order through me HERE and choose this paper as your FREE Sale-a-Bration Gift! Use the item number above (147193) to get this paper. It makes such pretty cards!

Thank you for popping over to my little corner of the world! Have a wonderful day!

Stampin' Up! Blossoming Basket Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Yes, new! This sweet basket stamp is NEW and it’s FREE! Stampin’ Up! added more exclusive FREE products for Sale-A-Bration and they are available now. 

This is a great bundle and I’ll be showing you more of the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. But for today I am LOVING this basket stamp! What a perfect basis for an Easter or Spring card, right? And it’s so easy to make!

Stampin' Up! Blossoming Basket - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Simply stamp the basket in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color in with Stampin’ Blends. The sweet little tag is another stamp in the set. I stamped it separately and cut the tiny little cute out and attached it with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Easy, right? Just set the basket panel on top of a piece of pretty designer series paper – I used a piece of Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Then set on a card base. The little butterfly is another cute stamp in the set.

I know you’ve got a wish list of items you want from either the Annual Catalog or the Spring Occasions Catalog. Why not take this opportunity to get this fabulous Bundle FREE with your order? (Check out the Petal Palette Suite – one of my current faves!)
