Saturday Creations ~ {Fall Colors}

Hi Everyone!  I have a card using the Brand New Precious Remembrance Stamp Set, Fall Colors!  Such a FAB set!

It’s time to start making those Thanksgiving cards and have them ready to mail:

I just LOVE the artsy flair to this leaf, the font in the sentiment, and the stamp that is a box of lines to encapsulate the words!  The grid pattern, stamped in a lighter color, makes a great background for the sentiment banner!

I used a woodgrain impression plate for the mat, distressed the edges, mounted it on an orange BG, more distressing, and then framed it on the white card so the Fall Colors would just POP!

Here’s a close-up of the two leaves at the top of the card:

I thought the natural twine and bow gave it that earthy feel.

On the inside, I added another leaf and the grid on top of scribbled colors of gelatos to add to the watercolor look:

It’s an easy way to add a FAB eyecatching effect to the inside.

Here’s a photo of my color mat:

If you haven’t tried this before, it is so easy and FUN!  You just scribble some of the color on a kraft mat, take a paint brush, and add water to the color.  It turns it into a watercolor that you can add color, and mix colors, and highlight the dots on the leaves, and just create your own look!  I used gelatos to color my leaves and then I cut them out.  Don’t they look real??!!!

Here’s the MUST HAVE stamp set, Fall Colors:

Thanks for stopping by!

{Crafty Sunday} bundle of joy

Happy Sunday!  Time to begin another week to work a bit, hopefully laugh a bunch and don’t forget your creative side.   This past week I spent a little time working on this card set, using as many stamps as I possibly and loving it.  From the border stamps to the cute baby buggy and stars, think I may have fit in just enough, so lets break it down.

Here are the sets that I used to create this card:

To begin stamp the base of the card/cardstock with layers of border stamps and paint splatter stamps.  Paint and stamp the chipboard piece and add rope to the top corner then adhere to the front of the card.  Lay thread on top of chipboard piece before pocket is added. Stamp and adhere kraft pocket on top of chipboard piece.   Stamp tab using border tape stamp, but out and staple to pocket.  Stamp stars and buggy onto cardstock, cut out and adhere to front of card.  (Note:  I used a border tape stamp on the buggy to add more detail.)  Thread and Adhere buttons to the buggy.  Stamp “celebrate” onto cardstock, cut out and adhere to card.  Add beads to card.

Created a gift pocket for the card using a brown paper bag using similar sets, but also used the “Holiday Wishes” set to stamp white on the bag.  That completes this project.  Hope you are having a relaxing day and enjoy your week.

{Crafty Sunday} good in everyday

Welcome fellow crafters to my first “Crafty Sunday” post!  So excited to be back to creating with my favorite stamps along with so many amazing designers.   When sitting down in my creative space with all of the Precious Remembrance stamps at my finger tips my mind went in a few different directions.  Today I wanted to share one of the ideas with you using basic supplies with the stamps to create something with a lot of color and spunk.

With just a cardstock mini album, paper, tape, thread and a few other items you can quickly create your own.  Begin by cutting paper to fit the outer cover of the album, stitch layers and adhere to the ablum.  Add tape at the binding.  Stamp paint drops from the DIY stamp set (in red).  Add glittered resin embellishments.  Stamp sentiment from the New Day stamp set, cut and adhere to the front of the album.  Lay thread on front of album.   Stamp pinwheels using the Oh So Fun pennant stamps, cut and adhere using foam dots.

One of my most favorite stamp sets, if I had to pick one which is nearly impossible, is the Border Tape #1 set.  Used these to create flag tags to add to each page.

There you have our first “Craft Sunday” project.  Hope you enjoyed this post and you are finding a way to add a little craftiness to your day!

Meet Our Guest Designer!

Happy Wednesday stampers!:) Oh happy day! Yay! August is finally here, and the time is getting closer for our next release. But before that, we have an awesome guest designer who will be joining us on our new stamp release that’s coming.

Please welcome Melissa Chipperfield along with her CAS perfection card!

Blog

I am a 30-something wife & mother of four (ages 10, 7, 4 & 1) who loves paper crafts, photography and taking notice of life’s little details.  Family time often includes spending time in the great outdoors, hiking, jogging or doing things like roasting marshmallows over a bonfire.  I’m a dental hygienist by trade, but am currently focusing on raising our children, working at the dental office only 1/2 a day each week to keep up to date in the ever changing world of dentistry.  When things settle into a quiet state in the house (usually late at night), I’m often found in my craft room with inky fingers, pulled up to the computer editing photos or simply curled up in a comfy chair reading a nonfiction book, craft magazine or photography article.

————————————————————————–

Hi, everyone!  It’s Melissa here guest designing for Precious Remembrance today!  I’m so excited to be designing and showcasing their wonderful line of stamps!  As you’ll soon see, I’m a clean & simple kind of gal.

For today, I thought I’d make a farewell card featuring a mixture of the clear stamp sets in the store.

This is a white on white card design, meaning I’ve popped up a white panel with foam dots on a white card base.  This gives it a little more dimension than if I’d simple stamped the design on the card base itself.  Two of the corners were rounded to add a little interest.

I stamped two tire tracks using a chevron image from the DIY Stamp Set, a very fun, creative set of images!

I then added a simple sentiment from the Journey Stamp Set, a must have set for all of us who love to travel or have a thing for taking lots of photos!

I finished this simple design off with a trio of black gemstones and a fussy cut heart from the Coffee Love Stamp Set, a coffee lover’s dream.

This card is so simple to put together, but delivers the farewell message in an effective & creative way.

I’ll be back with more clean & simple designs throughout the month, so stay tuned and keep enjoying your summer!  It’s quickly coming to a close!

Melissa from Oh, Smudge!

Blog

My name is Andrea, stay at home mama to a house of all boys in the sunny (and very humid right now) state of Florida.  With over ten years of crafting under my belt it is one passion that I cannot seem to stay away from for too long.  Things I cannot live without in my craft space: sewing machine, fabric and stamps.  Let’s just say there are touches of these elements in everything I create. 

—————————————-

With so many border stamps to choose from, why not use them to create your own background design?

Using one of my favorite border stamps from Precious Remembrance, Mom & Dad polka dots, I created a repetitive polka dot stamped background on a die cut cardstock label.  Next, folded in half, I and added stamped images from both the Friend and Oh So Fun stamps sets in black ink.   I then die cut white sketch paper in a small label die cut (approximately five cut in all).

To create the book, layer the sheets of paper and stamped outer label and sew down the fold to attach it together.  Fold it and press down to create the book.

I completed the look using heart stamps from Positive Thoughts and Love stamped onto cardstock, cut out and adhered to the front of the book.

Swoon!!! Oh how cute!!! LOVE!!!

Tons of ideas coming, so stay tune for more upcoming updates.

Birthday Card + Follow your heart {Pretty in pink!}

Hi stampers! Sharing a few cards today!:)  I made this birthday card a couple weeks ago, if you’re interested with the video tutorial on this one, you may find it here.

After I finished this card, I really want to recreate it in a different color scheme.

{Stamp Sets: Oh So Fun, Positive Thoughts}

So here’s what I came up with….

It’s pretty similar, I really did play with the shape of the elements that I put together. Instead of using a square scalloped, I used the rectangle shape. I used the bigger jar as well from the Oh so fun set. I did stamped my sentiment on a separate paper instead of stamping it on directly to the paper. And I actually added some heart washi tape inside the jar, it really looks delicate and sweet, but it adds a fun texture. And to make it all pretty in pink, I added some buttons!:)

Oh I had fun recreating this card. I hope you enjoyed!:)

Thanks for stoppin’ by.

Enjoy the day!
