“Tuesday Ideas : The Colors of Fall”

Hello, Everyone! It’s Melissa from Oh, Smudge! joining the design team today and I am so excited to be sharing ideas with you every week for the Tuesday Ideas feature here on the Precious Remembrance blog!

This week, I’m sharing a clean & simple card design using the brand new Fall Colors set!

If you haven’t already grabbed one of these sets for your own, it’s time you did!  Amazingly enough, fall and its beautiful array of color is just around the corner!

I created a collage of leaves as a background on the main panel using shades of yellow, orange and dark red.  The sentiment was stamped in black directly onto the leaf collage.  I then used some gold spritz to add a little metallic shine and popped up the entire main panel with foam dots.

This is such a simple design and could be recreated in many different color combinations!  I hope this will inspire you to create some of your own using this wonderful set!

{Crafty Sunday} picture perfect fall

Fall is coming, our most favorite time of the year!  The crunching of leaves that have fallen to the ground.  The gentle breeze that is welcomed back into the air after a long humid summer.  Don’t forget about the changing of your decor too, those boxes that have been sitting around through three seasons just waiting to be used once again.  With the new release of the new “Fall Colors” stamp set I thought I would add a personal touch to my decor this year.

Seem to have a number of shadow box frames around the house and what better way to fill them then with a dimensional, floating collage of stamped goodness.  Where to start, you may ask?  It begins with creating a stamped background using the text box from the “Fall Colors” stamp set.  The finished product looking a little like stacked stone or bamboo.  Used a soft orange to allow it both to show, but not to overwhelm when adding the other elements.  You could also use the leaves, sentiments or paint splatters for your repetitive patterns.  The possibilities are endless.

Now comes the fun part.  Stamp leaves, bubbles (“New Day” stamp set) and hearts (“Positive Thoughts” stamp set) in a variety of colors.  Trim, punch and cut them to prep them for placement.  I added orange thread first, sentiment strip next followed by the stamped pieces.  Varied the number of foam dots under each piece to give them a layered effect.  Finally, added glossy glaze and beads to complete the look.  There you have it.  A new piece to hang come fall.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and see you back at Crafty Sunday soon!

{Inspire Me Friday} hi there!

Well, hi there, PR fans!!!  Are you ready for a relaxing weekend???  I sure am…and here in the States it will be a little extra-long, thank goodness.  Yes, with Labor Day weekend we’ll bid farewell to summer and say ‘welcome fall!’, and Dyane has designed a lovely set to do just that…Fall Colors.  The other gals have been having fun showing off this pretty set, and now it’s my turn!…(YAY!)…

LOVE the images in this set…they’re SO fun to play with!  You can see I mixed a couple colors on that little grid image, and embossed the leaf in gold on vellum.  I was pleased that there’s enough gold on the leaf image to hide the little dabs of glue underneath…vellum can be tricky to adhere.  The little gold splats are from the set, too, as well as the sweet  ’hi there!’ sentiment.  I gave the rest of the card a very simple treatment…

…by allowing the panel of gold patterned paper to peek through, and adding the matching buttons.  And that’s it…a simple and sweet fall greeting!  Hope you’ve enjoyed it, and if you have this new Fall Colors set, I KNOW you’re enjoying IT!!!  Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for stopping in!

Hello PRS fans!!! Rosemary here with my {Create It} Wednesday post sharing a clean and simple card that I made using the fabulous new PRS set Fall Colors!  Isn’t the set just gorgeous???   So many beautiful fall themed projects can be made with this set.  I went clean and simple for my project today.

I die cut a panel of rustic white cardstock and then stamped the panel with two of the leaf images using rust and burgundy inks.  Some rust and burgundy twine was wrapped around the panel and then a twine bow was added.  Finished things off with the sentiment stamped in a red/brown ink.  The finished panel was mounted on a rustic white card base.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my project today!

Design It Monday ~ {Autumn Wishes}

Giveaway winner announced! Check it here.

———————————————————————-

Hello stampers and welcome back for another version of Design It Monday! Isn’t the New Stamp Release {Fall Colors} beautiful~ swoon!! I’m featuring this new set today in a back to school project of sorts!

When I think of Autumn I think of back to school. New shoes, big yellow school buses, sharpened pencils, Crayola crayons and even a new teacher. I’m celebrating the latter of this group…the new teacher. I know a very special and well loved first grade teacher who will have 24 bright shiny faces in her class room today. My daughter-in-law! I made this little gift for her to celebrate another school year.

After randomly stamping my leaves on rustic cream cardstock, I die cut the panel with a notebook die. Next I added a little bracket border along the edge in a warm olive green. The sentiment banner is a combination of the sketchy box (Ripe Avocado ink), the sentiment (Pure Poppy ink) and then the grid stamp (Classic Kraft ink). I curved the banner using my fingers, attached it to the notebook page the adorned it with a teeny paper clip.

To the right side of the banner I added a couple of die cut felt flowers, leaves and a sweet red button. When this was complete I used an antique safety pin to attached it to my linen drawstring bag. A few new pencils for the teacher and the little token of affection was complete!

We’re so happy you stopped by to visit today. Stay tuned for more crafty works of art from the DT in the days to come! Until next time…

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.
