Color Splash / Spring / Everyday Card

Happy first day of Spring stampers! Oh my! Are you excited as I am? I’m super excited for spring, I can’t wait to see tons of lovely flowers.

And what’s a better way to celebrate spring here? I have another everyday card with some splash of spring colors for you! Woohoo!:)

I used my adirondack inkpads to create that lovely watercolor background. It’s on a watercolor paper which makes it easier to blend with water. I just had a blast mixing any colors. No rules!:) Just have fun!

Once the paper is dry, I stamped everything else on top of it. All of the elements and sentiments are from the Love Coupon and This Moment stamp sets. I did add some splatters using my glimmer mists, it adds a little something.:)

I added some enamel dots at the end for more spring vibes!:) Oh how I love this card! It brings so much happiness! I hope you enjoyed it too!:)

Saturday Creations ~ {One card – three ways!}

Hello everyone and welcome to Saturday Creations!  For my card, I made a mixed media background using 2 Precious Remembrance stamp sets and then changed up the embellishment I added.  I just couldn’t decide because I liked how all of them looked for different reasons!  Let me show you what I mean:

The background was created by stamping the paint brush stroke 3 times with a stamp from the PR New Day stamp set.

Then I stamped hello from the PR This Moment Stamp set.  I LOVE the font!

Here is my first card:

First I tried my card with the bee which I colored with watered down acrylic paint.  I also added some light molding paste through a stencil and dusted glitter on it while it was still wet.  There is white glitter in the paste at the top (hard to see) and blue/green in the paste at the bottom.

For my second option, I added a birdy.

Notice how the sweep at the end of hello is the perfect perch for both the bee and the birdy.

And last, I went all mixed media out by adding the woman and turning the card sideways:

I have so many friends who work in mixed media that I could send this card to!

All three cards are packed full of details yet still flat for mailing!

I hope I have inspired you to combine your Precious Remembrance stamp sets and dabble in a little mixed media!

Thanks for stopping by!

Project Thursday ~ Planning

I took the leap and entered into the world of Planners………

I got this great planner full of pages to be filled in and realized that one of the newest Precious Remembrance Stamp sets was absolutely perfect to use with my entries & extras in the planner!

The This Moment Set works so well with planners.  The days of the week and the other sentiments included all fit perfectly with documenting daily life in a planner.  I die cut a notebook page above and left it open to highlight some big things about the day…

On this mini page, I focused on the movie theater ticket from our family day at the movies this past weekend.  And not only is this stamp set perfect, but so many of the stamps from the other stamps available are also super perfect for using to embellish the pages of my planner.

I did the same thing with an admission ticket to the Olympic Skating Oval where we skated a couple weeks ago after a hockey tournament in Lake Placid.  I used the day of the week, the arrows, and the “memories” sentiment.

This stamp set is perfect to keep on hand for working through this planner the entire year ahead.

Tuesday Ideas: Create a Plan

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more ideas for those Precious Remembrance stamps you have in your stash or have had your eyes on in the store!

How about a little organizational idea today?  Did you know you can use the Love Coupon set to create a weekly planner page for yourself?

Maybe you need to plan your meals for a week, create a chore chart for your child, record your hard efforts at the gym, document life’s little details at a moment’s notice, keep a gratitude journal or simply make a to do list.  This little sheet could work for any of those ideas & more!  I had a little clip board sitting around the house and it triggered the light bulb moment for this project!

Using a rainbow of ink colors, I stamped two columns of the coupon image and then added the days of the week to each box using the days from the This Moment set.  I added the circles & the “life is a beautiful ride” sentiment using one of the stamps from the New Day stamp set.  The little red heart is from the Coffee Love stamp set.  The finished page was trimmed to fit the clip board and a little piece of polka dot ribbon was added to the top.

So simple, but just think of all the things you could use something like this for!  I’m excited & I like to think this sheet could be color copied for mulitiple uses and then kept as the master copy!

Until next time, happy stamping!

p.s.  You might want to bop over to my blog today to see the last minute idea I had for a wedding card using two more Precious Remembrance stamp sets!

Love This Moment by: Heather Hoffman

Hello! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards with one final card to share as guest designer – thanks so much for having me! I had so much fun! I played with both sets to make another card to share – and layered lots of pretty pattern papers together:
I used both the newly released Love Coupon stamp set:
And this set called This Moment:
I stamped the heart in red dye ink and covered it with Wink of Stella – you can almost see it in the photos! I then stamped everything else in one layer, then stacked up all my pattern papers and added 3 messy rows of stitching to hold it all together. I felt like the word “love” got lost a little under the stitching, so I stamped it again on a strip of white with the edges trimmed at an angle, and popped it up with foam adhesive to make it stand out a bit more. Finished off with a few sequins sprinkled on, and also used my fingers to curl up the paper around the stitching to give it some fun dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by today – and again to Precious Remembrance for having me!
Have a wonderful day!

{create it wednesday}… Love this

Hey PRS fans!!  Rosemary here with my last {Create It Wednesday} post showcasing the newest Precious Remembrance Shop releases:  This Moment and Love Coupon.  My card today uses both sets along with another PRS set Positive Thoughts.    As many of you know the Spring Coffee Lover’s blog hop is going on right now and even though I’m not a coffee drinker I have really gotten into the spirit of things and made several coffee themed cards.  My card today is also coffee themed so I will be posting it to the Spring Coffee Lover’s blog hop.

Now Precious Remembrance Shop has a great coffee themed set called “Coffee Love“, but I wanted to show you how you could use other PRS sets to create a coffee themed card.  I mainly used images from the Love Coupon set to create my stamped background, adding in the circles image from Positive Thoughts as it reminds me of coffee rings.  I used light blue, grey and kraft inks to stamp all of my images on some Teresa Collins Studio Gold patterned paper.  The sentiment (created using the large word “love” from Love Coupon and a portion of a sentiment from This Moment) was stamped in black ink and then I added the die cut word coffee.  The edges of the patterned paper were distressed a bit and then matted with kraft cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by…

Design It Monday ~ {Gettin’ Scrappy}!

Hi friends, Lisa here today with a scrappy card for {Design It Monday}! The inspiration for this card came from a 6×6 My Mind’s Eye paper pad with lots of little bits begging to be used along with a snippet from a die cut banner and a previously stamped flower.

I started by trimming the bits to give them all straight edges. Next came a panel of thin cardstock covered with adhesive tape. I simply added the decorative paper pieces like a puzzle trimming and fitting as needed. When this was complete, I ran it through an embossing folder to give it a quilted look, love it! After adding the square doily scrap to the bottom, it was adhered to my card front.

Doing some selective inking, I added the remember sentiment from the new This Moment Stamp Set to the snippet of my banner die cut. I tucked it under a flower from the Mom and Dad Stamp Set (retired) that was left over from a previous project. This focal element is popped up on a vellum doily die cut.

The bottom of the card holds another sentiment from the This Moment Stamp Set ~ today. I added the stitched looking border from the Positive thoughts Stamp Set to echo the feeling of the quilted panel.

This card was fun to make and I loved putting all of those pretty scrappy bits together, it sure felt good to use them up!

Saturday Creations ~ {there’s something good in every day.}

Welcome to Saturday Creations!  I used three Precious Remembrance stamp sets and some mixed media techniques to make my card.

My sentiment is from the PR New Day stamp set which is one of my FAVS! I also used the brush stroke as a backdrop.

Don’t you just LOVE this sentiment?!!!  There IS something good in every day!

I paired it with the days of the week stamps from the new PR stamp set called This Moment.

The words were stamped on a piece of watercolor paper where I first added some text tissue paper with a soft gloss gel.  Then I added light texture paste through a stencil to give my card some dimension.  All of the raw edges were distressed with black ink to make them stand out.

The heart is from the new PR stamp set called Love Coupon Stamp set.  I LOVE how well ALL of the PR stamp sets work together!

I mounted the stamped panel on watercolor paper that I colored with pink and orange paints and inks.

Stamping tip:

When I want to line up words, I place the stamps on a lined sheet of paper how I would like to stamp them.  The lines help you keep the words straight and helps with spacing, too.

The next step is to place an acrylic block firmly on the stamps so they will cling to the block when you pick it up to stamp the image.

After I inked up the words, I stamped them on a scratch piece of paper.

This way you can look at the stamped image and see if you need to make any adjustments BEFORE you stamp directly on your card.  I hope you find this tip useful!

I also hope you like my Saturday Creation!
