Clear Stamp Storage Tips

Hello, everyone! Happy New Year!  It’s Judy here, and I’m stopping by to share how I store my clear stamps.

I don’t have anything crazy new to share, I’m guessing many of you store your stamps the same way.  However, I do have some tips that may be helpful.  I’m curious if anyone else does some of the things I do…let me know in the comments section!

Like Dyane shared in her previous post on stamp storage, I keep my clear stamps in clear envelopes like THESE.  I use my label maker to add the company name and stamp set name in the upper left corner of the envelope.

I store all of my clear stamp sets in a refrigerator drawer; I found mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond but you can find something similar at Amazon (like this one).  All of my clear stamps fit into one of these drawers.

Keep in mind that I have a limited crafting space.  I use a corner of my laundry room (where a former closet existed until my husband took it out).  Therefore, I limit the number of stamps I can have — of they don’t fit, I don’t get them.  This philosophy has worked well for me — I try to purge often and only keep what I really use and love.  Needless to say, I have saved plenty of room for all of my Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets!

Since I am on the design team for PRS, I actually keep all of my PRS stamps in a cute little basket so they are always easy to reach and all together.

When I use stamps to paper-piece, I usually do several at a time and save the extras in the back of the envelope.  Do you ever do that?

For example, here are three favorite stamp sets on the front:

Here they are when I flip them over…see all the extra paper-pieced images? They are ready to use!

The other thing I do is save my post-it masks and store them on the back, like that little coffee cup image in the stamp set on the right (above).  Can you see it?  Its very helpful to have everything in one place when I start to make a card!

So, that’s my own little way of storing my clear stamps.  I’m curious to hear what tricks and tips you may have and if you use any of the tips I’ve shared regarding paper-pieced images and masks?

Thanks for stopping by!

Storage Idea : Organizing Clear Stamps!

Hello stampers! Welcome to our very first post for 2017! Yay!:) Holiday rush is finally over. I hope you had an amazing holiday, I sure did!:) It’s the beginning of the year, planning, & organizing is such a big inspiration for us. Well today, I will be sharing with you how I organize my clear stamps.

Finding a solution in organizing your clear stamps may take awhile, since you have to figure out what’s best for you. And after trying out so many ways in making it work for me, finally this is it & I’m happy to share it with you!:)

I found it so convenient to store them in a clear plastic – clear stamps storage which is also available in our shop. I added a pretty good weight white cardstock inside, which is easier for me to see not only the stamps but I can also add the name of the stamp set using my label maker.

Now the question is where will I put all of them after? Well, for awhile they’ve been just sitting on random boxes, I was browsing around looking for a perfect one. Just last year, I saw this basket at Target $1 spot – I believe I got it for $3 (if not $5).:) First, I’m not gonna lie – because it’s cute (lol) , second the color matches my craft room, third, lovin’ the label part, where I used my vintage typewriter and typed Clear Stamps.

At first I was worried that it won’t stand properly because of the wire base. To my surprise, It holds my Precious Remembrance Stamps perfectly, and as you can see there’s a lot of room to add more.:) Just what I needed!

In case you’re interested on the same storage, I saw it in Target recently, they are still carrying it. Valentines is coming, they have a lot of pinks & red if  it’s your cup of tea!:)

Thank you so much for joining me today.

Stay tune because designer Judy will be back with more clear stamp storage idea.

Happy stamping!:)

Saturday Creations ~ {THX}

I don’t know about you guys but there doesn’t even seem to be enough time to breathe this holiday season so I wanted to create a Christmas Thank You card that was quick and easy to mass produce.  I used the PR Oh Christmas Stamp Set and a piece of paper that was laying on my desk leftover from a 6×6 paper pad.

oh-christmas-500x500Since this card is going to a younger adult, I decided to use text speak so they would get the message.

Here’s my card:

pr-thx1I used the pine boughs from the stamp set – cool, huh?!

I added some white sequins for bling, polka dot paper, and non-traditional colors.  Here’s a closer view:

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and don’t forget to send THX cards!

{Inspire Me Friday} A Christmas “Thank You So Much”

Hello, everyone!  Its Judy here with a Christmas thank you card that is quick and easy to make!  I paired up two sets for my card: Oh Christmas and Thanks.

oh-christmas-500x500thanks-stamp-set3-500x500

I started out by embossing the sentiment in white on black card stock and die cut it into a label using a Spellbinders die.  Next, I drew a circle on a white card stock panel and stamped the pine boughs from the Oh Christmas set to make a wreath using two different green distress inks (Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters).  Finally, I used gold thread to mount the label to the white panel and framed it in black before adhering onto the green card base.  The final touch of gold and red Stickles on the wreath added some needed sparkle!

Even though there are several layers, this card is still very flat — that is always important to me, especially for mailing purposes!

I hope you have enjoyed our Design Team’s week of Christmas thank you cards.  It always amazes me how well the different Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets work together, no matter the season!  I’m sure I will need a bunch of thank you notes after Christmas, and I know what stamp sets I can combine to make them!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {Happy Art and Oh Christmas} Thanks

Let’s wrap up this year with an expression of gratitude! Today, I’m using lots of stamp surgery (if you’ve seen my posts, you know I’m a fan) to create a subway art Christmas Thank You card. happy-stamping-oh-christmasfull

I’m always excited to give and receive thoughtful gifts, so what a way to say thanks with this card. When creating this look, I arrange my base set of stamps on a large stamp press/block, rotating them different directions, until I get a design I like. I ink up all the stamps at once and press really well into the center of my paper. Sidebar- I have to say that these stamps ink up and stamp fabulously every time! Then I go back and fill in the blank area, working from the center outward. All you do is change the orientation of the stamp from the previous time you used it.

happy-stamping-oh-christmas

I wanted to include traditional Christmas colors of red, green, and gold and the main sentiment from the {Happy Art Stamp Set} was just the right opportunity by using some embossing powder. The rest of the stamping was done with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I added some shadows in those big, amazing, open sentiments from {Oh Christmas} and around the embossing using a W3 Copic marker (it’s a perfect match for the ink!). I added a strip of gold glitter tape and called it a night.

Thanks for joining me and I hope this gives you a way to mix your holiday and everyday stamps sets! Have a very Merry Christmas and see ya in the New Year!

Tuesday Ideas: A Holiday Thank You

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa here with my final post for Precious Remembrance Shop.  I am stepping down from the design team and continuing on in my creative journey.  I have truly enjoyed my time spent with Dyane and her amazingly talented team and will sincerely miss being a part of all the wonderful creativity here!

For my farewell post, I created a holiday themed thank you card.  At season’s end, we’ll all need a few of these!

2016-dec13

I used one of the pine images from the Oh Christmas set to decorate the fun coffee cup from the Coffee Love set.  I love the clean fonts of the sentiments in the Thanks stamp set and selectively inked one to label the cup.  The trio of stars are also from the Oh Christmas set and I stamped and then embellished them with a gold Wink of Stella brush marker to add a touch of festive sparkle.  The green chevron washi tape I found in my stash and used it to ground the coffee cup (please excuse the pun).  The cup is popped up with foam dots for dimension.  This design is a very simple one to create.  I love the sparkle of the stars (they remind me of Starbucks’ gold stars…)!

I hope you’re well on your way to finishing up your holiday cards.  Don’t forget to make a few thank you cards while you’re at it!

Wishing you all the best in the new year ahead!

Design It Monday ~ {Thank you!}

Hello stampers! The fun continues here this week as the design team shares Christmas thank you projects.

16-1210-002-copy

This card began with a sentiment image from the Holiday Wishes Stamp Set. I trimmed out the rectangle box then added a tag stamped with a thank you sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set. I heat embossed the sentiment in Liquid Platinum to coordinate with the glittered stars on the background paper. Two fussy cut pine trees from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set were adhered to the back of the rectangle. A large vellum snowflake was added to the card along with the stamped images.

This card was easy to make and could be quickly mass produced. The time to fussy cut the trees was minimal. Stamp, stamp, snip snip, glue glue ~ viola!!

Saturday Creations ~ {Using Three PR Stamps Sets to Say Merry Christmas!}

It’s almost Christmas and today I am showing you how well all of the Precious Remembrance stamps sets work together to make one special card.  I showcased the sentiment from the PR Oh Christmas Stamp set and paired it with the PR Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and for a twist, I used the jar from the PR Oh So Fun Stamp Set!  I hope you like the result:

Here’s a close up:

pr-christmas-hwCan you recognize the stamps from the different stamps sets?

Tip – Don’t be afraid to mix and match, even if this leads to an unexpected twist!  But in order to do this, you MUST have more than one of the FABULOUS PR stamp sets.  Head on over to the Precious Remembrance Shop and start shopping.  These stamp sets make Wonderful gifts!

{Inspire Me Friday} Merry Christmas Coffee and the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello, friends!  It’s Judy here with a special installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring two of my favorite sets: Coffee Love and Sketchy Christmas.  I hope you have been inspired by all of the Design Team cards and featured stamp sets this week…I know I have!

As luck would have it, today is also Day One of the week-long Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop, and Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors!

2016-winter-clbhWe are giving away a great prize as part of the hop…the “Totally” stamp set!

 

In honor of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop starting today, I made a card featuring my favorite coffee cup stamp and some fun patterned papers.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-img_1772

I started out by stamping the coffee cup onto kraft card stock as well as a gingham patterned paper and plain white card stock.  I fussy cut and paper-pieced the coffee cup before adhering it to the card base.  The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is stamped in green distress ink above two strips of coordinating holiday patterned paper.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-close-up-img_1779

I embossed the cream card base with a linen embossing plate…I love the rustic feel it adds to the card!  See that popped up circle snowflake?  I punched the circle from another coordinating  patterned paper, centering the snowflake image!  I finished it off by adding a red gem to the center, edging the circle with diamond Stickles, and popping it up on foam dots.  I also filled in the snowflake with a clear, sparkly gel pen…you can see it in just the right light!

Do you have this awesome Coffee Love stamp set?  It is a perfect set to use if you are participating in the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop this week!  I’m thinking this card will go to one of my kids’ teachers  for Christmas along with a Starbuck’s gift card inside!

Thanks for stopping by…and Happy Friday!
