Tuesday Ideas: Watercolor Halloween

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa returning to share a clean and simple Halloween card design using the fantastic new Beware stamp set!  Tomorrow is the first day of October and if you’re anything like me, pumpkins and Halloween decor are on your mind!

I started out by cutting a panel of watercolor paper to fit within the card base.  I then painted varying sizes of circular shapes on the panel using an orange watercolor.  While waiting for the paint to dry, I stamped the sentiment in black.  Once the paint was dry, three pumpkins were stamped on top of some of the larger watercolor circles using orange ink and three gold sequins were adhered as embellishments.  I then mounted the finished main panel to a panel of orange cardstock and popped up the entire center panel with foam dots for dimension.

With watercolors being popular, you could make lots of different versions of this card, varying the shapes & colors in the background to go along with any of the cute circles in this stamp set you choose!  This card is an easy one to mass produce for all those people on your Halloween list!  Pop it into an orange or black envelope and you’ve got yourself a festive paper greeting to give!

I hope this inspires you to create some of your own Halloween cards for the month ahead!  The new Beware set has lots of different images to choose from and endless possibilities!

Until next time, enjoy your autumn days!

{Crafty Sunday} ’tis near halloween

Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays in the past couple of years.  The season, picking out costumes, hosting a party for the neighborhood kids and just having fun with it all.  When the new Beware Precious Remembrance set came out I was in love all over again and motivated to get our party planning underway.  This week I wanted to share a little project which kind of remind me to trading cards, these ones being all about Halloween.  All you need is your PR stamps, ink, cardstock and some fun Halloween poems and you are ready to create!

Each tag was created using the following stamp sets: Beware, Border Tape #1, Fall Colors and New Day.  To top it all off I stamped a polka dot pattern onto a small clothes pin with black ink.  Stick these in goody bags, your child’s lunchbox or use them in your next scrapbook or craft project.  Took less than fifteen minutes to create these and that is what I love the most.  With almost twenty kids last year and a haunted house to decorate, these are the projects I adore.

Are you ready to October and Halloween?

Design It Monday ~ {A Pocket Full of Autumn}

Hi there Precious Remembrance Shop fans and a happy fall to everyone! What could be more appropriate to celebrates this first day of autumn, than a card using the Fall Colors stamp set? I’ve showcased this set a couple of times using traditional autumn colors. Today’s card takes a different turn. The crisp autumn days and cool nights made me think of cozy warm sweaters. And with that thought I reached for some of my favorite argyle patterned paper!

I die cut a library pocket from my paper then stamped the leaves from the set onto more patterned paper. I adore the leaves in this set and the fact that you can trim them out easily to give them a die cut look. This pocket full of leaves was added to a white panel that was stamped with a sentiment and the double stitched border from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

I’m thankful for so many people in my life. And of course my parents are right up there at the top of the list!  They eloped after dating just 4 short months and have been married for almost 57 years…I know right!! This card seemed appropriate for their autumn anniversary next month.

To personalize it, I added a sentiment from the Mom & Dad set onto a small canvas banner.  A few little splatters from the Falls Colors set were added before adhering it to the pocket.

I hope you enjoy your first day of fall, thanks for visiting with us today!

Saturday Creations ~ {Fall Colors Place Setting}

Hello!   It’s Sue Lelli with Saturday Creations offering you a home decor idea with the Fall Colors Stamp Set!

I decided to use these FAB stamps to created a napkin holder and place card for Thanksgiving!

This photo shows how I created fall leaves that look so life like by stamping the leaves in black on water colored paper that I had painted with different fall paint colors.  I fussy cut the leaves out, smooshed them in Versamark, and used clear embossing powder to make them shiny when I heat set them.

I made a flower out of co-ordinating paper to create a rose to round out the FAB leaves from the stamp set.

This is an even closer image so you can see the shine on the leaves and how FAB they look against the canvas fabric.

Here is a close up of the place card I made using more leaves from the Fall Colors Stamp set along with a felt border and flower.I LOVE how versitile this stamp set is and how you can use it for so many things!

I hope you like my place setting!

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!
