{create it wednesday} eeek!!

Happy Wednesday PRS fans!!!   I popping in today with a spooky little card that combines two older Precious Remembrance Shop sets (Fall Colors and Beware) with the newly released School Days set.   I love paper piecing the school bus and this time I turned it into a spooky one.

I stamped the bus on some patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye Happy Hauntings 6×6 pad and then trimmed out the entire bus, as well as the windows on the bus.  The little zombie doll image, as well as the spider web image from Beware was stamped on some additional paper, trimmed out and then adhered in the open windows.   For my little scene I created “trees” using one of leaves from the Fall Colors set.  I inked up the leaf using grey ink, wiped some of the ink off and then stamped.   The “moon” was created using the “October 31st” image from Beware and stamped in yellow.   The “eeeks” were added by inking up another image from Beware, wiping off the parts that weren’t needed and then stamping.   I added a hazy/foggy look by inking up the cardstock with some Ranger Pumice Stone Distress ink and Memento London Fog ink.   Finished off the card by adhering my spooky bus with foam dimensionals.

Design It Monday ~ {A SimpleThanks!}

Hey there PRS friends! I have a super simple card today that would be a great thank you for one of the guys in your life. So many say they sometimes struggle with masculine cards, myself included. But with a couple of stamps and a bit of patterned paper you can whip one up in no time!

This card begins with a white panel and the two borders from the Holiday Wishes Stamp Set. I randomly stamped one of the borders using a soft gray ink going in two directions and overlapping. Next came the other border using a golden yellow ink. Once again I went in both directions and overlapped. I began my stamping on the diagonal from one of the corners. But you can start anywhere on the paper. If you have stamp blocks with grid lines on them, this is super easy to do. The MISTI tool would work great too.

After trimming down the panel, I added my big thanks sentiment from the new School Days Stamp Set using Versa Mark ink. It’s embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum. I popped this onto my card base covered with some masculine patterned paper. And that’s it…see I told you it was a simple card!

Saturday Creations ~ {thanks}

Today I am showing a card I made with the School Days stamp set using the sentiment “thanks.”  I LOVE that this word was included in this set because it makes the School Days stamp set very versatile!

The brushstroke look of this very useful word adds to it’s charm!

I used two other Precious Remembrance stamp sets, the Blossom Stamp Set and the Oh So Fun Stamp Set.  Isn’t is great that you combine components from all of the PR sets to make a FAB card?!

Tips of the Day –

1-I stamped the jar on tissue paper with black archival ink and cut it out.  I adhered the tissue with soft gloss gel.  The tissue gives it a translucent look and adds some texture.

2-For the flower, I had a scrap of watercolor paper with various sprays on it.  I stamped the flower on this scrap in black archival ink and cut it out.  It makes for an interesting effect on the flower ~ very shiny!

3-I stamped everything with black archival ink and immediately put clear embossing powder on it while it was wet.  When I heat dried it, everything came out super shiny which is a cool effect.

I hope you like my card!

Project Thursday – Fall Thanks

 

It’s Thursday and we are still showcasing the newest of the Precious Remembrance Stamp Sets………

School Days

I created a card showcasing the super large sentiment “thanks” stamp in this set.   I stamped the sentiment on some watercolor paper and then trimmed it with the leaves from the PRS Fall Colors Set.  I inked up the stamps and then spritzed them with a little bit of water.  I love the watercolor look without the painting.  I completed the card with a little bit of Kraft Rustic Twine.

Tuesday Ideas: Spook Bus

Hi everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I thought I’d use the School Days set to create a mini Halloween card.  It’s always fun to stick a little note in with Halloween treats and this little 2.5 x 3.5 card will be perfect for that!

I used a black marker to ink all but the ‘School’ sign on the bus.  I wanted to replace the sign with a Halloween themed one!  I grounded the bus & framed the sentiment using the border stamp in the School Days set.  I used the ‘Beware’ sentiment from the Beware stamp set to transition the school bus into a spo0ky bus.  The little spider is from a portion of one of the circle images in the same set.

Have you started on your Halloween cards & gifts yet?  Next week, October arrives and then it won’t be long before little ghosts & goblins are knocking on doors asking for sweet treats!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{Inspire Me Friday} Chalkboard Thanks

Hello, everyone!  I am so happy to be here with my second {Inspire Me Friday} post at the Precious Remembrance Shop!  So, did you get your hands on the new “School Days” stamp set?  You are going to love it…it is perfect for card-makers as well as scrapbookers!

As soon as I saw the thanks sentiment in this set, I knew I had to try the “chalkboard effect” with it!  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto black card stock and embossed it in white.  I drew the stitch lines around the border with a white gel pen, then mounted it onto a woodgrain patterned paper for a framed effect.  I stamped the cute 1″ circle stamp onto dotted patterned paper and popped it up with foam tape.  The patterned card has been in my stash for some time and I think it goes perfectly with a school-themed thank you note!

Now I have another thank you note for my stash…as I mentioned in my last post, I like to give thank you notes to my kids’ teachers throughout the school year and I think they deserve an A+ for their efforts!

I hope you enjoyed my card…thank you so much for stopping by today!

{create it wednesday} thanks…

Hey PRS fans!!!  Happy Wednesday to you!!  Rosemary here with a fall thank you card that I made using School Days (just released!) and the lovely PRS set Fall Colors.   I just love the sketchy leaves and the sentiments in that set.  For my card I used the large “thanks” from School Days and the three leaves from Fall Colors.

I started by watercoloring three fall colors (red, yellow and light brown) on a piece of watercolor paper using my Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolors.   After the piece was dry I stamped the leaves using a kraft colored ink and the “thanks” using a dark brown ink.   I then die cut the piece using a rectangle die that leaves a nice pierced edge around your piece.   A second larger rectangle was also die cut and some dark brown hemp twine was wrapped around that panel.  I adhered the “thanks” panel on top and then adhered the whole thing to a card base.  Some additional dark brown twine was tied around the wrapped string and the ends adhered to the card for a little finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today….

Design It Monday ~ { A Spooky Ride!}

Hello and welcome to another Design It Monday! Today I’ve turned the cute little bus from the new School Days Stamp Set into a spooky ride!

After stamping the bus onto white card stock, I die cut it with a stitched banner die. Using the spider web from the Beware Stamp Set, I gave the kiddos some creepy crawly friends to ride along with! This was done by inking up the portion of the stamp I wanted, then carefully wiping off the other areas with a baby wipe. I masked off the windows with Washi Tape, then stamped the webs.

I thought it would be fun to add a few reactions to those spiders in the form of a speech bubble. I added the “Eeeeks” from the Beware Stamp Set.  Star splatters (Journey Stamp Set) in Soft Stone ink bring the color of the card base forward. The chevron/arrows from the DIY Stamp Set give the illusion of a road/direction.

As you can see here, I have dimension on the school bus! The second layer had the wheels cut off so they appear more deep set. And the front layer is just the headlight and grill portion. To spook it up a little, I added the beware sign and big spider (both from the Beware Stamp Set) to the headlight!

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday Creations ~ {The Bus Stops Here}

Today I have a quick and easy card for you using the school bus from the new Precious Remembrance School Days Stamp Set and some designer paper:

I’m sure if you look in your stash of paper pads, you will find plenty of school themed paper you can make a back to school card with.  The tag and all of the BG lettering were layered papers from the same pad and together they add so much detail.

The school bus from this set is a FAV of mine!

I LOVE how it looks stamped on yellow cardstock with black permanent ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  It adds that little something special don’t you think?  I also LOVE how the lines in the paper look like a road.

I hope you like my card and can see all of the possibilities for creating with the School Days stamp set!
