{Inspire Me Friday} Open If You Dare…

Hello, PR fans!  Happy to be here with you today sharing a fun card that was a delight to make.  I had fun layering a couple fun sentiments from the BEWARE set…

You can see a few little ink splats from the DIY set there, too, along with some veneer stars colored with a black Copic.  Next is a fun embellishment I used as the focal point.  I mentioned in an earlier post that the circle images in the set are perfect for bottle cap embellishments, and that’s what I’ve made here…

The trim was made by cutting strips of the purple and black crepe paper to the same length (mine was a couple feet…I wanted enough to play around a little!), stacking them together, and folding them in half.  Next you stitch close to that fold line to hold all your layers together, and then snip away to create the fringe.  A little separating and fluffing, along with some sparkly mist, and you’re done!  I wrapped my trim around this bottle cap twice to create more fullness.  I love how the little plastic dome finishes it off so nicely!

You can see I used the little ‘Trick or Treat’ border from the set on the top portion.  The rest of the card is pretty simple and self explanatory, but if you have any questions…I’d be happy to answer!  So glad you could drop in today!  Stay tuned, as we have a little something special planned for later in the weekend here on the blog!!!

{Create It Wednesday} Sip… if you dare!

Hello PRS fans!!  Rosemary here with my last {Create It Wednesday} post using the Beware set.  I don’t know about you, but I have had loads of fun making different projects using this versatile little set.   The project I’m sharing today is actually the first one I made when I received the set, but saved it until the last!   A friend gave me some Halloween related goodies one day and one of the items was a pack of black and white straws.  When my Beware set arrived in the mail I just knew I had to create something for those straws.  This is the results:

I die cut some patterned paper from the October Afternoon Witch Hazel paper pad using a Spellbinders lacey circles die to create my rosettes.  (Each rosette takes two die cut circles to create.  If you are interested in how I made the rosettes, just let me know and I can do a tutorial on my blog.)  Once I had my rosettes created I stamped the icons using orange and purple inks, punched them out and then adhered them to the rosettes.    I used my hot glue gun to adhere the finished rosettes to straw to give them a bit strong attachment.   Here is a close up of the rosettes.

I love how they turned out and as you can see from the first picture, they go perfectly with the little wrapped treats that I created for my previous {Create it Wednesday} post.    Thanks for stopping by… and Happy Halloween!!

Design It Monday ~ {Halloween Bookmark}

Hi friends and welcome to another edition of Design It Monday! The team has shown you cards, treats and even jewelry using the latest {Beware }stamp set. So how about a bookmark today. These would make cute favors for a school party or something extra special for the kiddos lunch boxes!

I made my own bookmark by die cutting a portion of a label on one end of white and orange rectangles of card stock. But you could easily use a pre-made bookmark for this. I stamped one of the borders and sentiments on the white panel, then added a strip of spider web Washi Tape down the center.

Using the pumpkin image from the set, I stamped and punched it out, then added it to the bookmark with a foam dot. I cut my own bat wings to size then finished up with some Halloween twine. Easy Peasy!!

Thanks for visiting with us today. Mark your calendars for the 26th, we have a designer inspiration blog hop coming your way!

Saturday Creations ~ {trick or treat}

Welcome to Saturday Creations and this pumpkin inspired Halloween card using the new Precious Rembrance Beware Stamp set!

I also used the Precious Rembrance Positive Thoughts stamp set to make the black circles and splats.  Another GREAT PR stamp set!  The white is watercolor paper with orange and yellow paint smeared on it.  LOVE how it has more color in the left panel and graduates to less color in the right panel.

The leaf is an extra from a project for last month’s release, Fall Colors stamp set.  It’s the perfect extra somethin’ for this Halloween inspired card.

I decided to use the rule of three ~ three windows with three smiling pumpkins.   I clear embossed each one to make them shiny.

Some white paint dots on the black circles makes it more artsy and FUN!

Something else FUN to do with this Beware Stamp set is combine sentiments on one block and stamp them all at once.  Three sentiments is better than one!

I hope you like my card and are inspired to buy this FAB Beware Halloween stamp set!

Project Thursday ~ Halloween Treats

It’s Project Thursday – and my last Thursday showcasing the newest of the Precious Remembrance Stamp Sets – Beware

I put together this little treat box that is the perfect size for a few little Halloween treats or a gift card.  This project showcases the different sentiments that come in the set.  I used the 3D spider sticker embellishments again and tied off the box with some Halloween Divine Twine.

Above is a close up shot of the box and below is a picture of the complete Beware Set.  As always the set has great images with a couple of borders and corresponding sentiments.

If you don’t have this set yet, get it now!  Such a fun set to use in creating your Halloween goodie bags, boxes, etc.

Tuesday Ideas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!  I hope your October is going well for you and you’re feeling like you’re almost ready for Halloween!  I’ve been working on a few clean & simple Halloween cards and thought I’d share a couple of them today!  Both were created using the new Beware stamp set.

For this card, I used a die cut to create a simple country scene and, after stamping the sentiment, popped it up on top of a black panel of cardstock.  The moon was stamped using the Spooky circle image in the stamp set and a 1-inch circle punch was used to cut it out.  Using a clear Wink of Stella brush marker, a thin layer of sparkle was applied to the moon.  Once dry, the moon was popped up using a foam dot.  The entire main panel was also popped up using foam dots.

For my second card, I created a simple, one layer design.  Using the dotted border image in the stamp set, I stamped the left three lines of dots.  Then, the dated circle was stamped in black and a little orange ink was sponged onto the words.  Finally, the three lines of dots on the right were stamped.

A classic black and white color scheme provides endless possibilities when designing a card, especially if you use a small pop of color (as seen in the second card)!  When I think of Halloween, I automatically think of black, orange, green and purple!  What colors do you think of when making Halloween projects?

The circles in the Beware set can be used for so many different things!  I used one for the moon in the first card & Halloween themed lollipops in this post!  What other creative uses can you think of for these cute images?

Beware Stamp Set

The border stamps in this particular set offer lots of options.  You can create your own borders, frames or use them as random lines in your designs!

Until next time, have fun finishing up your Halloween projects!

{Crafty Sunday} let’s do plaid

When I think of fall plaid comes to mind.  Flannel shirts, the wool plaid blanket we used to cuddle up by the fireplace with growing up and walking into the Pendleton factory where my grandfather worked at for over thirty years.  This is the time of year to start pulling out those things to keep us comforted and warm during the cool days.  Today I wanted to take it to the paper and create my own version of plaid in colors I love.  Here is the breakdown of  my stamping steps.

Did you know that Precious Remembrance has such an amazing variety of border stamps that you can probably mix and match the stamps each and every day for something completely new?  Now you can experiment with stamps and colors in a whole new way.  Try fall or Halloween colors and just see how so many new color layers come out as you stamp your plaid!

Stamps: Border Tape #1, Coffee Love, Fall Colors, Positive Thoughts, Holiday Wishes.

Thank you for popping by…

{Inspire Me Friday} Fun with Jewelry

Hey, everyone!!!  Geri here…and it seems like it’s been forEVER!!!  I’ve been having fun with the new Beware set…those cute little circular images have been screaming…’Embellish with me! Embellish with me!!!’  So that’s what I was working on…some fun bottle cap embellishments…the circles are the perfect size, ya know?!  But you’re going to have to come back to see those another day, because while I was working on them, I had another idea that I could not wait to try!  Does anyone out there dabble in jewelry???  Well, this girl does…enough to know there are some simple ways to make cute jewelry out of 1″ circular images…and I thought little Mr. Owl would be perfect in a necklace for my daughter…

I made this one with resin which is a little fussy, but really fun.  I kept it simple for my daughter, and to not overwhelm anyone reading today who hasn’t tried it before.  I stamped the owl with brown Staz On (although it appears black) onto some paper in my daughter’s favorite color and punched it out.  The liquid resin can make inks bleed, so I thought the Staz On might work better than my other inks.  It’s always recommended that you seal your images first, but that can be done with something as simple as Mod Podge.  The image can also be adhered into the pendant tray with Mod Podge.  Then your mixed resin is dripped in and allowed to dry overnight.  I added a few glass beads and tried a different style necklace for my finished product…

…and she LOVED it!!!  An easier method that would look really nice is using the same silver pendant tray and circular image with a glass bezel on top rather than the resin.  (Hobby Lobby just happened to be out of the circle-shaped bezels…that’s why I went the resin route.)  One tutorial for that technique recommended using Glossy Accents to adhere the image to the glass. There are other glazes that can be used, but I love that so many things that I already have on hand for my paper crafting can be used to make pretty little wearable treasures like this one!  So anyway…if you’re interested…there are lots of tutorials out there for either technique, and I’d be happy to answer any questions to get you started.  Just BEWARE…you might get hooked!!!

Thanks for stopping in today!  And stay tuned for those bottle caps!!!

{Create It Wednesday} Spooky Treats!

Hello PRS fans!!  Rosemary here to share a fun little treat wrap that I made using the newly release PRS set “Beware“.     These little wrap are so easy to create using multiple stamps from the set.  To make the wrap you will need a sheet of Avery (or other similar brand) #5260 mailing labels, some inks of choice and your stamps.  This label size is perfect for wrapping around a Hershey’s Nugget candy.

I started by stamping the “trick or treat” line image along each long side of the label using black ink. ( Note:  when making the wraps do one column of labels at a time and make sure to not stamp on to the labels in the adjoining column.)  I then stamped one of the little washi tape images on either end of the label using orange, green and purple inks.  The center was left unstamped because that will be covered up.  Below is a photo of a completed label.   Stamping the labels can get a bit messy so don’t be surprised to find ink all over your fingers and hands!   The icons were stamped using the orange, green and purple inks, punched out, Glossy Accents applied and allowed to dry.   I wrapped  each candy with a label and then added the little icon.  And there you have it.  A fun little treat for Halloween!

Design It Monday ~ Too Cute To Spook!

An adventurous walk in the park gave me the idea to create a cute Halloween card with the owl from the new Beware set nestled inside a hollow tree!

We spotted such a tree on our walk and thought it would be the perfect spot for a spooky old owl! This little fella isn’t too spooky, but he looks pretty cozy in there doesn’t he?

I created a small shaker area to tuck him, along with a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins, into. A couple of stamped and fussy cut leaves from the Fall Colors set ground his little home. I think he’s too cute to spook and wouldn’t mind coming upon him on one of our walks!
