Project Thursday, Better Late than Never…

My apologies to all of the Precious Remembrance fans who were looking for a Project Thursday post this morning.  Unfortunately, life got in the way of my crafting organization and I totally missed getting this posted timely.  Better late than never, I guess…

I had some burlap pieces lying around and thought it would look great with the leaves in the Fall Colors Set that was released this month!  I love how this card came together.

 The brown button pulls out the specks of brown color added to the leaves and the sentiment.  I have to say this set has become one of my favorites for sure.

Again, I apologize for my delay in getting this post out to you all today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday Ideas: Autumn Treat Box

Hello!  It’s Melissa back with another Tuesday Ideas post using the wonderful Fall Colors stamp set!  I hope you’re warming up to the idea of the arrival of autumn!  Next week marks the beginning of the season and fall craft projects are on the to do list!

This week, I wanted to share a little treat box idea!  I’ve been wanting to make a little gift for my children’s close friends and teachers.

 This is so simple to make!  Here are the main supplies that I used:

  • Fall Colors stamp set
  • kraft cardstock
  • red & orange ink pads
  • gold Spica pen
  • craft scissors
  • small gift box die of your choice (or you can use a premade box)
  • double sided tape for assembling the box
  • foam dots
  • 1/16-inch circle punch
  • twine or cord
  • small, clear sealable bags
  • small treats of your choice (I used candy corn & cocktail peanuts)
  • tissue paper

 

I started by die cutting the box from kraft cardstock, stamping the sentiment on the front & then assembled the little box using double sided tape.  (There are lots of different box dies in the stores right now and I know you can even buy boxes that are already cut for you!)  I stamped two leaves on a piece of kraft cardstock by first inking a leaf image in orange and then dipping the edges in red.  I then fussy cut them and added a little sparkle with a gold Spica pen, following the veins of the leaves.  I paired the leaves together and adhered them to the box front using foam dots.  I then punched two small holes with a circle punch on either side of the stems.  I inserted a small piece of twine through the holes (from the inside of the box) and tied a knot on top of the stems, trimming the twine to the desired length, once secured.  I cut two small pieces of tissue paper to fit inside the box and placed a small bag of treats inside with them.

I can’t wait to give these out on the first day of autumn!  You could use a variety of colors on these boxes including different colored leaves and tissue papers to match whatever treats you decide to put inside!

Enjoy your week!

{Crafty Sunday} it’s how you celebrate

The past month has been filled with birthday’s around here.  Friends, family and soon I will officially be one more year older.  What better way to celebrate than with a few balloons and greeting cards.  The first card above was created using a few familiar Precious Remembrance stamps to create something unique.  Beginning with one of my most favorite background stamps from the Mom and Dad stamp set, I used a soft pink to create a polka dot background.  I then used the rings from the Positive Thoughts stamp set to create the balloons.  From here, use your PR border and border tape stamps to create your own colorful bundle of balloon designs.  The dash border stamp was used as the string, added the balloon detail to the bottom of each with a pen and drew a bow at the base.  Finished it off with a sentiment from the Oh So Fun stamp set.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Inspire Me Friday {playing with fall colors}

Hello, PR fans!  Good to be with you today, sharing a little more inspiration from the Fall Colors set.  I don’t know about you, but I’m always ready to switch gears to a warm, rich color pallet in the fall.  So for today’s project, I wanted to play around with some color.  The other gals have been showing off those pretty leaves in the set so well…I thought I would use some color to show off my favorite little sentiment in the set…

 …it’s such a natural way to greet someone.  You can see I dressed it up by embossing it in gold on a piece of scalloped vellum, and then using a portion of doily to peek out from underneath.  The doily helped my sheer sentiment to not get lost on the panel of bold fall color, created by simply sponging my chosen colors onto a stencil covered piece of  cream card stock…

And there it is…bold and trendy color, with a touch of softness. I really liked how these colors worked together, but the options for color combinations are endless.  And as popular as stencils are right now, you probably have more than one on hand to play around with yourself!  If you do…

HAVE FUN!!!

So glad you were able to stop in today!  Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Geri’s Paper Wishes

{Create It Wednesday}… happy thanksgiving

Hello PRS fans!!!   Fall is definitely on its way.  As I walk my little guy to school in the morning I’m noticing that the leaves are slowly starting to change colors.  I have a little project to share today that features some handmade falling leaves using the Fall Colors stamp set.

Mini bags still seem to be rather popular and I purchased some quite awhile ago.  I haven’t used them a lot, but found that they were perfect for creating some little Thanksgiving bags.  I can tuck a gift card or some candy treats inside and give them to my kiddos and nieces this Thanksgiving.  I started by inking up the little bags using some Ranger Old Paper distress ink.  I then added stamped the bags with the grid image from Fall Colors using some red/brown ink.  Bits of coordinating washi tape were adhered and then the sentiment “happy thanksgiving” was stamped at the bottom of the bag.  I stamped the sentiment multiple times without reinking to get that shadowy effect.  The leaves were inked with sunflower and rust inks, stamped on some thin cardstock that had printing on it and trimmed out.  I crinkled up the leaves and then inked them with burgundy ink.  Finished off the little bags with some burlap twine.

I hope you enjoy my little project and thanks for stopping by…

Design It Monday ~ {The Gathering}

Hi there friends! Can you believe it’s September already? The kiddos in our area have been back to school for a couple of weeks now. This limits their playtime in the evening, but believe me, they make the most of it. For the last couple of years they have gathered up all of the leaves from our front yards into wagons, child sized wheelbarrows even plastic bins! They hustle and bustle up and down the street raking and gathering. Then one of their yards is chosen for the dumping ground!! And well…of course you know what happens next ~ wink *

I made this card with our neighborhood little ones in mind. An embossed notebook page, stamped with grid lines using kraft ink and tiny golden yellow splatters. My trio of leaves was stamped, trimmed out and water colored. Dark speckles we added before they were gathered on my card using foam dots.

To be little again ~ jumping into a giant pile of leaves, tunneling through, making leaf angels. And the giggles…lots and lots of giggles!

Here’s my project for today:

{Stamp Set: Oh So Fun}

I started with my main image, using a watercolor paper. Before stamping my mason jar, I watercolored the center of my paper using the pale pink marker from the Dual Brush Pen – Portrait Marker . Let it dry, then I started stamping my mason jar and all other sentiments from the Oh So Fun stamp Set. I chose the fun polka dot paper for my background, and started layering my papers using the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue and Mono Glue Pen for the edges. Works perfectly!:) I added some washi tape and created a bow twine to add some interest.

I wanted my mason jar to pop more, so I decided to watercolor around it using the same set of markers. Oh I had so much fun playing with colors!

Come back tomorrow for more project ideas using these products.:) Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below! Yay!:)

{ Stamp Set: Thanks }

These layers of papers are adhered using the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue, SUPER easy! A little goes along way, and the great thing when working with glue is you have time to move your paper to where you want it, but once it’s set, it’s there for good! It’s a strong permanent glue!:)

Before stamping my sentiment from the Thanks stamp set, I created a settle background on a watercolor paper, using their Dual Brush Pen – Portrait Marker  {these markers are water-based, which is blendable – sweet!:)} ,  make sure to let it dry before stamping. I added some sewing thread before adhering my sentiment. But those loose thread around my focal point sometimes won’t stay in place, like how I want it too. With the help of the Mono Glue Pen which is my new favorite, those small detailed areas that is needed to be adhered are solve! Oh how I LOVE it!

I added some fun enamel dots and washi tapes to finished off this card! Woohoo!:)

I hope you enjoyed my project for you today. Come back tomorrow for Day 2 of our hop!:) Feel free to subscribe in our blog if you don’t want to missed any fun projects coming!:)
