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:

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.

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.

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!

Create It Wednesday ~ {New Day & Oh Christmas Tag Team}

Versatility is the name of the game for today’s Create It Wednesday card! I love when I can combine stamp sets to create great projects, and the result was exactly that when I used the {New Day} and {Oh Christmas} stamp sets. new-day-oh-christmas

I started by creating the focal point for my card, the sideways tag with an inlaid die cut snowflake. The brushstroke stamp from {New Day} was perfect to bring in different hues of blue ink (Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Weathered Wood Distress Inks). I even used the medium sized dot from the set to stamp the hole reinforcer on the tag! For the sentiment, I used some masking to stamp “let it snow” from {Oh Christmas} just once.

A few sparkly accents with some Wink of Stella and sequins on the tips of the snowflake and dotting the “i” in the sentiment and we have a wintery collabo 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to see my project and join us Friday when Judy continues our cool combinations of stamp sets for Christmas cards!

Tuesday Ideas: School Themed Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more inspiration for Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I’m sharing a school themed Christmas card which uses two stamp sets from the Precious Remembrance Shop store:  School Days and Oh Christmas.  This time of year, school children often take a little something to school for their teachers and this clean and simple card is just perfect for the occasion!

2016-dec6-space

I had so much fun making this card!  I found some fun, plaid washi tape recently and adhered it to the bottom of the card .  The “MERRY” and “Christmas” are both partial sentiments from the Oh Christmas set.  I inked up selective portions and stamped them.  I fussy cut the letters in “MERRY” and drew little red polka dots on them to add a little festive element.  I arranged them randomly to make them come alive and popped each one up with foam dots for dimension.  The school bus was stamped in black ink also and left uncolored to keep the overall design simple.  I can see this going to a bus driver!  They need a little of our gratitude too!

I hope you’re making progress in your holiday card making!  Isn’t it crazy just how quickly time goes by this time of year?  With clean and simple designs, you can get your cards made and in the mail on time!  I hope this inspires you somehow as you are putting things together this holiday season!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Design it Monday ~ {Revisiting old friends!}

Hi there! We have something fun planned for the next two weeks. The design team will be revisiting previously released stamp sets and pairing them with Christmas sets! I’m sharing the Journey Stamp Set with you today.

16-1203-001-copy

The camera in this set is perfect for paper piecing! The ‘lens’ of the camera was stamped again then punched out and added with foam tape. A coat of Wink of Stella was added to the outer circle. Pine branches from the Oh Christmas Stamp Set were stamped on coordinating patterned paper. The star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set where stamped over the pine with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment comes from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set.

While I had the patterned paper and stamps out, I decided to make another card!

16-1204-001-copy-2

I layered several die cut pieces together onto a white card base. The card was dry embossed with a pine branch embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment (Journey Stamp Set) with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed out the square then added it to the card. A few pine branches (Oh Christmas Stamp Set) were stamped and fussy cut, then tucked in among the layers.

I hope you enjoyed these! It’s so easy to mix and match all of the PRS sets. Stop by tomorrow for a project by design team member Melissa!

Happy December by Andrea Budjack!

Time to wrap up the month of November and head on into December with some holiday stamping cheer.  So grateful to be guest designing with Precious Remembrance over this past month.

I have fallen head over heels for birch wood slices this season.  There is just so much you can do with them.  Today I wanted to showcase how you can easily stamp on the surface and create your very own, unique ornament, gift tag, or holiday decor.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and thank you for allowing me to share my love for Precious Remembrance with you!

Stamps Guide the Needle by Andrea Budjack!

Over the past few months there have been many trips down the embroidery aisle at my local craft store.  The colors draw me in and I do not hesitate to add a few new shades of thread to my collection. 
For my second project, guest designing this month here at Precious Remembrance, I wanted to share a project where stamp and thread meet.

Begin with stitching a black threaded line across your fabric.  The length will depend on the hoop you are using.  Using pale ink, here I used grey, stamp the pine needles.   This is the point when you add the fabric to the hoop and secure it properly.  Now, time to stitch.  Use the stamped image as a guide for your needle and thread.  I also used a portion of a sentiment stamp in the Oh Christmas set to stitch “happy”.  Added a few french knots and done.  To finish things off, stamped a gift tag and box.

I am not a seasoned embroider; however, with a few of my favorite stamps it makes the process much easier and consistent.

Have a wonderful day and see you back here again soon!

Deck The Walls by Andrea Budjack!

This is the time of year when we start digging into our creative stash for the holidays.  Handmade cards, handmade ornaments, and if we have time, handmade gifts.   Today I wanted to share a quick and easy project that can fulfill that gift need, or maybe keep it for yourself.

All the materials you will need for this project are as follows:

Precious Remembrance Stamps – OH Christmas

Ink

Driftwood or small dowel

Twine

Pearl beads

Needle/thread

Adhesive

Wire (optional)

Tassels or charms (optional)

Begin by tying the twine to the piece of wood.  String on beads, tassels/charms, and wire pieces.  Time to stamp!

Stamp as many stars and pine branch onto cardstock as desired.  Cut out each piece. (Note: To create the 3D pine branches, simply cut out two stamped pine branches.  Stamp image on the reverse side of each.  Cut 3/4 of the way up on one and 3/4 of the way down on the second piece.  Slide them together, through the cut, and fan out to create a “x” at the top and bottom.)

Attach the pine pieces to the wire attachments using a needle and thread.  Then, attach the stars to the twine using a double layer of 3d adhesive dots and two stamped/cut out stars.

There you have it.  The wonderful thing about a project such as this is that it can have anything dangle from the twine in the color palette of your choice, using your favorite stamps and items.  Make it larger to add more detail, or smaller as an ornament on your holiday tree.
