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!

Oh So Artsy! Snow + Coffee Love

Hi stampers!:) How are you today? We had a light snow the other night, so the next morning we had a pretty snow on our yard. My kids got excited and played outside that morning, and the snow started to melt just after noon.lol  During winter time, it couldn’t be any better having a nice warm drink! Coffee for me! How about you?:)

Oh! just feeling so artsy today and inspired by different things, I chose these pretty simple color combo: black & white. No patterned paper this time (lol ok.. just a little bit of designer paper,at the center of my coffee cup for paper piecing). And the rest are just stamps.:)

Here are the stamps that I used for my background:

New Day, DIY, Positive Thoughts, Fall Colors.

I had a blasts mixed and matching these stamps.:)

 I stamped my coffee cup using the Coffee Love stamp set, and cut it out . I added some sentiments from This Moment stamp set. And that mini arrow border is from the Love Coupon stamp set. I love little details, that makes a lot of difference.:)

Added some dimensionals at the back of my image and some sewing thread for more texture. Using the same black ink (memento tuxedo black), I distressed the edges of my card as well.

————————————————–

I also want to share with you that there is a Coffee Lover’s Blog hop going on, thanks to designer Judy for the head’s up!:) Whether you love coffee or not. Some of you might be interested in joining the challenge and win some amazing prizes. If you have the Coffee Love stamp set, it’s the best time to ink it up again and join the fun!

I hope you got inspired for today’s project.

Thanks for stoppin’ by!

Project Thursday ~ Hello

 

It’s Thursday (my Friday, this week) and that means another project ….

I have been wanting to use the large “hello” sentiment from the This Moment Stamp Set since I got these stamps to work with.  I love the brushstroke font and the larger size.

I kept it to a CAS design to showcase the stamp.  This card can be easily mass produced  simply using paper pieces/scraps you may have sitting around.  So many possibilities…

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend………I’m off to a hockey tournament out of town.

Tuesday Ideas: Word Play

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa here today showing you more possibilities for your Precious Remembrance stamp sets!  I decided I’d play with words this time around since there are so many fantastic sentiment & font choices available in the Precious Remembrance collection!

I used a combination of stamp sets for this card.  The cute jar is from the Oh So Fun set and was stamped first.  I then filled the jar with the days of the week using the This Moment stamp set.  The larger sentiment was created by combining two separate words from the same set.  I stamped a single red heart from the Love Coupon stamp set in the bottom of the jar and applied some sparkle using a Wink of Stella brush marker.  The entire panel was then popped up using foam dots for a white on white design.

There really are endless possibilities when you start combining words within stamp sets!  Give it a try and you’ll find exciting new ways to use yours!

Until next time, happy stamping!

It’s your moment! Smile!:)

Happy Sunday Stampers!:) It’s another brand new week! Yay! Can you believe this is the last week of February?:) Time flies! Can’t wait for spring though, how about you?

Look what I made!:) I hope this will bring a lot of smiles your way!:)

Working with scraps again, and created this 3×4 size paper as my centerpiece.  It works with pocket page scrapbooking ,but here I decided to place it on a card.  The rectangle  and diagonal blue striped were stamped using the Love Coupon stamp set, it creates a fun layer to start with.

I created my own label embellishment using the label and sentiment from the This moment stamp set. Using 2 layers of paper creates an awesome dimension.

You can barely see it but under the ric-rac ribbon, I actually stamped a light blue polka dots border from the Border Tape #1 stamp set.  And then I stamped a pink heart which is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set, cut it out and stapled it at the center of the flower. Another easy DIY embellishment.

Before adhering my 3×4 card, I tucked a pretty tulle under it. More texture and it’s simply sweet!:)

But I felt like there’s still something missing…..

At first , I was thinking maybe some white splatters right on the blue paper would be great.

Hmmm… but I want something different.LOL

Sometimes my creative mind just won’t stop  thinking. Do you feel the same way sometimes?:)

And so, I decided to stamped words on it, a chalkboard inspired type of thing.:)

I used a white pigment ink, got my sentiment from the This Moment stamp set again.

And after it’s all done, I felt so happy!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post.

Keep on creating and have fun!:)

Glamorous Hello Card by: Heather Hoffman

Good morning! Heather here again from Houses Built of Cards to share another card using one of the newest releases! I can’t get over how fun the fonts are on these sets – and how they just shine all by themselves on a card!

I used one of the newest sets called This Moment:
I stamped it on some pattern paper from Basic Grey, then covered it with Wink of Stella to make it sparkle – I’m always sad that you can’t see that better in the pictures! Matted it at an angle with white and black cardstock on top of some floral paper from the same paper pad, and finished off with a few black self-adhesive gems I had in my stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

{create it wednesday}… love this moment

Hey PRS fans!!  I back today with another project using some of the newly released Precious Remembrance Shop stamps.  Today I combined This Moment with Fall Colors.  I think I have said this before, but it bears repeating… I just love how easy it is to mix and match all the PRS stamp sets!

I started by stamping one of the leaves from Fall Colors in three shades of green ink (Stampin Up! Certain Celery and Pear Pizzazz and Memento New Sprout).  I then grouped the day of the week stamps from This Moment on my acrylic block and stamped them over the leaves using a soft blue ink (Stampin Up! Soft Sky).   The word “love” and the sentiment “this moment” were stamped using a dark brown (Stampin Up! Early Espresso).  Some bits of washi tape were added to one corner and then I added splatters of the light blue and dark brown inks.   Rounded one corner and then mounted it on a light grey cardstock base.

Thanks for stopping by… now pull out your PRS stamps and do some mixing and matching!

hey there…rosigrl 

 

Design It Monday ~ {Touches of the Past}

Hello! I hope you’ve been enjoying our projects featuring the latest new stamp releases. I’m here today to share another combining the new with touches of the past. The past being a couple of our previously released sets.One of my favorite color combinations is aqua, red and kraft. On this card I chose to let the red take center stage with this fabulous sentiment from the new This Moment Stamp Set. I just love the paintbrush look of this image! After stamping the sentiment onto a die cut cream panel, I added the wispy feathers from the DIY stamp set. I stamped three consecutive times without re-inking.

Next came the large grunge circles from the New Day stamp set. I inked it up, stamped off once on scrap paper, then stamped it onto my panel. To bring a bit of my kraft card base to the focal panel of my card, I inked up the trio of splatters from the DIY stamp set. The finishing touch was the addition of my favorite aqua rhinestones. I felt the card needed something else bright to marry with the bright red sentiment.

And there you have it, one of our new sets with touches of past sets! Thanks so much for visiting with us today.
