Inspire Me Friday {playin’ around with borders;)}

Hello, Precious Remembrance fans!!  Happy Friday to YOU!!!  Hope this day finds you with a satisfied tummy and some time to relax!  (Unless you ventured out for some Black Friday deals, that is.  And if you did…well, I’m kind of surprised to see you here…but so happy you made it!!! ) As I type this, my family and I have just wrapped up a long but wonderful day in Disney World!  We’ve followed our oldest down here to watch him perform with the rest of his high school band at Hollywood Studios.  Before we headed out this AM I photographed this card that I brought along on the trip…(and yes, I felt a little silly wandering around my resort, snapping pictures of my little posed card!;)

This one was made made with Dyane’s new Border Tape #1 set.  I hadn’t used this set yet, and the other girls have done such a nice job presenting it in it’s true washi style form that I thought I should play around a little and find another way to use it.  As you can see, I used the patterned sections of border/tape to create little flagged banners for my card.  I then added bits of trim and fabric to add some fun texture, along with the little red heart-shaped button.  Lastly I added some sweet ‘get well’ wishes with a sentiment from the Positive Thoughts set.  It was a really simple design, once I decided what I wanted to do! I love the fun patterns in this set!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful and full of holiday spirit, wherever you may be!!!

Design It Monday ~ {Inspiration}

Welcome friends! Isn’t it interesting where we draw our inspiration from as card makers. It might be a challenge graphic or a card from a fellow blogger, something as simple as a word and there’s always Pinterest. The inspiration for my card came from my son! He stopped by last week for lunch and I told him how handsome he looked!  He had on nice gray dress pants, a crisp button up shirt and a striped tie. After he left I had some time for crafting. The patterns in the new {Border Tape #1 } set reminded me of men’s ties. That very thought (along with my well dressed son!) was my inspiration for this masculine card.

I began stamping the images using smokey shadow ink that had been stamped off first for a softer gray color.  Once I had a large enough panel stamped. I die cut it with a notebook die. The ink spots came to be from me reminding my son not to let his rigatoni sauce splatter his tie! The sentiments are from the {Border Tape #1} set and the {Positive Thoughts} set. They’re both popped up with foam tape for added interest.

So just what inspires you to create?

Saturday Creations – {LEARN something new every day}

Welcome to Saturday Creations where I have used the New DIY Stamp Set from Precious Remembrance to make this CUTE school card!

I LOVE how you can pick and choose the sentiments to create so many different combinations!

I kept this one kinda sweet and simple so the chalkboard technique would stand out and showcase the words.  I also used a mini chalkboard on a tiny clothespin to add a FUN detail to my card!

I hope you like it and I know you are going to LOVE this stamp set:

Tip ~ When you pair the words from this stamp set with papers that have a school theme, you can easily make a school themed card without a lot of extra steps.   I hope you like it!  THX for stopping by!

Project Thursday – Library Style Journal Cards

For this weeks Project Thursday at Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop, I put together this set of journaling cards.  Project Life type scrapbooking albums are quite popular right now and I used both of the newly release sets on these.

Border Tape #1 & DIY

I took some cream library cards and trimmed them down to the standard 3″ x 4″ size and rounded the edges.  Then I added a few stamped images and paper to them – leaving just enough space for some journaling on each one.  The great thing about these too, is that the back can also be journaled on or even decorated because of the set up of the albums and the pockets the cards fit in.

This set will be perfect for scrapping back to school, don’t you think?

 

These are a lot of fun to make and they are a great way to use up small scraps of the designer papers that I know we all have.  You can make them ahead too!

Inspire Me Friday {Angles}

Good Friday morning to you, Crafters!!!  Delighted to be here sharing my latest project with the new DIY set!  This is such an ‘artsy’ looking set!  You mixed media people would have a hay-day with it!  Unfortunately, I don’t have any of those cool new mixed media supplies…yet…(I COULD be tempted, though;), but I did want my card to have an ‘artsy’ feel to it, so I settled on the colors of aqua, gray and silver.  And I’ve been awfully inspired by all the angles I’ve been seeing out there these days…decided to go with that trend also…

You can see I went with the ‘LEARN’ sentiment for my focal point.  I obviously wanted that to have an upward slant, and highlighted it’s positive message with some little chevron style arrows from the border included in the set.  (Learning new things always takes us in a positive direction, don’t you think?)  I played around a little and felt it looked nicer for that sentiment and it’s angle to stand out from the feathers in my background, so I stamped it separately and adhered it to my panel, giving the little arrows some additional dimension with foam tape.  Then I played with two different silver papers I had to add more layers, angles and dimension…

I finished it off by stamping the ‘something new everyday’ sentiment on the card base, and adding a few sequins, and I don’t know about those…I feel like I never have the exact color I need in the exact size I need…but it did need just a dab of further embellishing, and I think it looks better with than without;)  I appreciate you stopping in today!  There’s lots more inspiration to come from the other gals with this new set and the new Border Tape 1 set, so…stay tuned!

Design It Monday ~ {Learn Something New}

{Giveaway winner announced! Click here.}

——————————————————————-

Hi crafty friends, did you enjoy the new release blog hop? I’m sharing another project using images from both sets. I really don’t know why I felt the need to get a little fun and funky again, but I went with the creative flow that moved me!Actually I blame it on the ink spot, I just love them!! I started this card with a white panel then added the two stamped feathers, one in kraft and one in light aqua. The ink spots were added next with a sprinkling of my favorite light aqua rhinesotnes. I love the combination of kraft, light aqua and red, so I knew the sentiment would be stamped in red ink. I inked up the blueprinty “LEARN” followed with the fabulous “something new every day”. I think my learn is a wee bit crooked, but let’s just say it adds to the funkiness *wink*

Before adding the white panel to my kraft card base I wrapped it with twine. I adore the combination of fonts in this sentiment! Thanks so much for visiting today, we appreciate it!
