Embossing Paste Leaves!

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinupI absolutely love the new leaf punch! There is so much you can do with it! For today’s project, I used it as a mask for embossing paste!Stampin' Up! Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s cards are the ones we made at our one-day retreat, Create the Day Away, and I couldn’t wait for you to see them! One of our demonstrations was on using embossing paste in different ways.

For this card we created a “mask” by punching a piece of Heavyweight Card Stock with the Leaf Punch. We laid the punched piece of card stock on top of the thin card stock panel and covered it with Embossing Paste. Lift up the mask and you are left with the embossing paste leaves!

We made both of these cards so that we could use a different arrangement of the card elements and a different sentiment on each card.

What do you think? Do you have any preference? Different options, different stamps, different combination of colors…and all quick and easy!

Give it a try! Punch your own leaves and use the punched piece as a mask for embossing paste. Send me a picture of your project ~ I’d LOVE to see it!

Gorgeous Cards for July Prettypapercards by Mail!

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set is one of my absolute favorites in the annual catalog, and the coordinating Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies are classic. That’s why I’m offering this stamp set for my July Prettypapercards by Mail!

People love coming to the card classes that I hold in my home, and I love having them! I would love to have YOU come to one of my classes! But because that’s not really possible unless you live in the San Diego area, I want to bring my classes to YOU!

Prettypapercards by Mail is just that ~ we will make cards together! I design 3 cards all using this month’s Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I will send you the stamp set and all the papers, die cuts, ribbons and embellishments you will need to make the cards I’ve designed.  You will also receive via email a pdf tutorial with detailed instructions and photos and comments from me on how to make the cards! Sometimes I’ll include a video, depending on the month.

And, on top of all that, I will include for you a fourth card, the one shown above, using the same stamp set, along with a personal note!

Here’s what one customer said about my card kits:

“Everything arrived today in perfect condition.
I love all of the cards, tips, and how your instructions are so easy to follow.
I’m so pleased with everything.”  Janice S.

Ruffled Ribbon Birthday!

Today’s card is such a fun birthday card! Sometimes I like to make different birthday cards, out of the ordinary, something unexpected.

My unexpected element today is a bold Berry Burst ruffled ribbon. I’ve mentioned how I love the crinkled seam binding and I like to ruffle it loosely on a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Underneath the ribbon I’ve tucked a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. These two colors look SO good together!

Actually, my husband helped me design this card! He’s very artistic and many times he advises me when I’m unsure of a layout. I really like the way he arranged the daisies, I would never even think of adding them! Pretty neat to have a designing husband 🙂

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Blog Hop for May 2017. This month our theme is “Sneak Peek”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Prettypapercards, 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.

Today’s card is a sneak peek of the new set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This stamp set has 32 stamps and many of them are sentiments in adorable fonts. That’s one thing I look for in a stamp set ~ good sentiments. When you need a card, the main thing is the right sentiment. Once you have that you can coordinate all the rest of the card around that sentiment.

And the best stamp sets are those with both fabulous sentiments AND pretty things to go with them! Look at these sweet flowers and pods and leaves! They are darling and just what I needed to make this card.

Pretty Pointer: The clear dots that look like pearls are really dots of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Just put a tiny “bubble” of glue on your card (and in this case, several bubbles!) and set it aside to dry. It’s a great way to create your own embellishments!

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 – Peggy Noe, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.
