Happy Sunday stampers!:) Are you guys ready for Thanksgiving day? It’s a pretty busy week for sure! My daughter’s 5th birthday is actually the day after Thanksgiving! Lots of preparation coming but really fun!:) Her theme will be Frozen. Yay!:) Oh I had fun collecting the decorations and all. But it will be a surprise party for her! Shhhh!:)

I also want to let you know that we will have a Thankgiving Stamp Sale coming up! This is the perfect time to grab your favorite sets!

I have some quick projects to share with you today. I made my Christmas cards in advance, lovin’ the pop of non-traditional colors.

I had fun filming a quick video of DIY Christmas wrapping idea as well. A perfect match for my cards. I hope you’ll enjoy!

Thank you so much for joining me today. Have a fun week!:)

Saturday Creations – {JOY}

Today I am sharing another tag I made with the FAB new stamp set by Precious Remembrance called Joy:

The background was made using pink and white distress paints with gold stars from the PR Journey Stamp Set .  Once again I was going for an artsy look.  I LOVE pink and red together for a not so traditional Christmas look!

I randomly stamped Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year plus the Greetings sentiment from the Joy set.

I stamped JOY in red, clear embossed it, and fussy cut it to add to the wreath I stamped directly onto the tag.  I added white sequins and red seed beads to decorate the wreath.

Once again I cut up the sentiments from the huge stamp block.

The hi and the heart are from the PR Positive Thoughts Stamp Set ~ still one of my FAVS!

My tip to you ~ make some Beautiful tags with this JOY Stamp set to add some pizazz to your Holiday Gifts!

Project Thursday – Joy

 

It’s my turn to share a project using the newest of the Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop sets ~

Joy Stamp Set.

I again have kept it pretty simple using the Joy sentiment and a couple of die cut snowflakes.

The snowflakes have been coated in some white glitter for texture, and then I added a little twine bow to accent the sentiment.

Sometimes, I just really love a card with lots of white space – and I’ll admit, I like how quick and easy they are to make too.

Great if you need to “mass produce” for the holidays.

Tuesday Ideas: Creating a Simple Holiday Star

Hi everyone!  It’s Melissa here, back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!

How many of you have ever looked at a stamp set and wished you could figure out ways to use it other than the obvious?  I had a light bulb moment recently with the new Joy clear set & wanted to share it with you today!  It occurred to me that I could single out a portion of the larger image in the set to create a unique and fun holiday card!

Who knew trees could be used to create a holiday star?!  I stamped and fussy cut five tree images and arranged them to create a star, popping them up for dimension.  I added gemstones to give it a little sparkle.  The sentiment is also a portion of the larger image in the stamp set, also cut out and popped up with foam dots.  Such a simple holiday card, but that’s a good thing with days seeming shorter and schedules feeling fuller!

I wonder if some of you have already figured out other unique ways to use this stamp set?!  I’d love to hear from you!

Until next time, keep taking these busy days one at a time!  The new year will be here before we know it!

{Crafty Sunday} tis the season with clay

The time has come to begin tackling the annual Christmas gift and card list.  What gifts to get, which photo to choose for the card, are there any handmade gifts to be made?  Taking it one day at a time.  Have you started your countdown?  Recently I have been posting ideas on my blog, specifically about clay.  Find it difficult sometimes to work with polymer clay so I am attempting air dry clay from Martha Stewart.  The project I am sharing today uses one of the star shapes I am working with.

Supplies: stamps, air dry clay, roller, cookie cutter, twine, hole making tool and twine.

Once the piece was air dried for over 24 hours I stamped the front using the newest Precious Remembrance stamp set, Joy.  Used the solid border stamp to create a subtle checkerboard background and the word “Joy” in a bolder pink.  Added twine and glitter for a complete embellishment or ornament.  Added this element to the card created using embroidery thread, cardstock and the stamp “greetings”.

This clay is very light weight and perfect for embellishments on project.  Actually quite amazed how well the stamping turned out on it.  Enjoy your day and tackling your Christmas list as well!

{Inspire Me Friday} a bit of embellishing…

Hello there, friends!  So glad you could drop by today!  I’m sharing a simple card I made using the new JOY set and the large journaling card image from it…

You can see I did a bit of embellishing with the bow, bell, star, and by adding the little red strips of paper to the tree.  I used a fine tip Zig pen to fill in the empty spots in red, and personalize it…kind of fun for a card.  Then I simply layered this with some other festive papers that were cut slightly larger than the journaling card, along with a doily, on a soft clean Kraft base…

I love the combination of the Kraft, the cheery red, and the clean bright white! And I think just the little bit of embellishment added to the journaling card goes a long way!

There’s lots more to come using this set between now and Christmas!  Be sure to stay tuned!  And thanks so much for stopping by!

Geri’s Paper Wishes

{Create it Wednesday}… warm wishes

Hello PRS friends!!  Are you loving the new PRS set Joy???  I know I am!!  Today I have a card to share that is easy that would be easy to mass produce using several different color combinations.  For my card I went with the Christmas classic of red and green.

I started by stamping the large image from the set in dark red ink.  To make sure that I had a nice even border around the image I first measured the image and then cut my cardstock piece about 1/4″ larger.  The image is about 2 1/2″ x  3″ so I cut my piece 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ and then stamp my image.  I then stamped portions of the image again using green ink, trimmed those pieces out and adhered to the main image using foam dimensionals.  Some Crystal Stickles were added to the Christmas tree.   The sentiment “warm wishes” is from the PRS Coffee Love set and perfect for the little message box.   I added three score lines to the card base and then adhered the image.  Finished things off with a few green sequins.

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

Design It Monday ~ {A Little Joy}

Hello friends! Did you enjoy our blog hop featuring the new {Joy} stamp set? A big congratulations to Katie B. on being our give-a-way winner! I’m sharing a card today using the new set that went together very quickly and would be easy to mass produce.

This card uses a single stamp from the set. But sometimes “a little joy” can pack a big punch with the right background!

I began with the dry embossing of my card base. It’s folded tent style. Next I die cut two large snowflakes, one from cardstock, one from polka dot vellum and an ornament. The {Joy} sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with gold powder. These items were layered onto the card after the pretty red tinsel edge ribbon (Pretty Pink Posh) had been added. I opted for metallic gold sequins  (PPP) as my ornament topper and for a splash of elegance on the snowflake.

I think the pop of red ribbon goes beautifully with the crisp white and elegant gold. This ribbon flattens nicely for easy mailing. But you could omit it all together or swap it out for twine.

I hope I brought a little joy into your day with my card. Stay tuned for more projects from the team featuring the new {Joy} stamp set!
