{Inspire Me Friday} White Embossing Times Two!

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy stopping by today with my final projects for the Oh, Christmas stamp release!  This time I made two separate projects…both using white embossing powder.

My first project is a card using some non-traditional colors, namely pink and light green.  I embossed the “Merry & Bright” sentiment using Versamark ink and white embossing powder, then watercolored the background using two distress inks (Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet).  Next, I used the same distress inks to watercolor the letters in the sentiment so their colors would be richer and darker.  Finally, I went over the letters with Wink of Stella to add some subtle sparkle.  The pink and green sequins are from our lovely Lisa’s Pretty Pink Posh “Sweet Pea” sequin mix!

Can you see the sparkle?

For my next project, I decided to make a pillow box (to hold a gift card), and I knew this wonderful sentiment would fit perfectly!  I embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder, then stamped the smaller pine branches using Versamark ink and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  The three red gems as “berries” are the finishing touch!

I hope you have enjoyed my projects using the versatile Oh, Christmas stamp set.  Happy stamping and thanks for stopping by today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {Let It Snow}

I’m back for my last Create It Wednesday post where I’m showcasing the awesome {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set. I couldn’t let the release pass without throwing in some snowflakes!

For the card: The burst of color on the card was created using Yupo paper, alcohol inks, blending solution, and a snowflake stencil. I die cut the snowflakes from silver and white cardstock and dotted the center of each one with a rhinestone, because a little sparkle definitely screams holiday to me. I then heat embossed the “let it snow, let it snow” sentiment from the stamp set in silver. If you look closely, you’ll see teeny tiny rhinestones as the dot for each “i”.

I even got  inspired by fellow DT member Lisa and created a tag…it was a totally happy accident 🙂

For the tag: I was testing coloring the sentiment using Zig Clean Color brush pens, but decided it was too aggressive for the card…so, I thought, “How about a tag like Lisa?” The sentiment stamp took the ink so well!! It’s proof these stamps are great quality.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects from this new release. Thanks for stopping by…now, go create!

Design It Monday ~ {Which Came First?}

Hello stampers! Lisa here today with one more Design It Monday post featuring the Oh Christmas stamp set.

project_20160911_0007-copy

I’ve often been asked if I choose the stamps or the papers first when creating my cards. Kind of like the chicken and the egg question…which came first! In this case it was this particular sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. I knew I wanted it to be the focal point, so I kept the other elements simple. I stamped the image on a ledger paper then die cut it along with some red glitter paper to back it with.

project_20160911_0008-copy

I chose a traditional plaid paper then adhered it to the white card base followed with the sentiment label. To dress it up just a tad, I added some fussy cut pine sprigs and die cut mittens stamped with that same pine. I also used a hole punch on some of the red glitter paper scraps for glittery dot accents.

project_20160911_0006-copyMy matching tag was die cut with the same label using the ledger and glitter papers. This sentiment comes from the Sketchy Christmas stamp set. More stamped pine accents were used here.

So just which did come first, the chicken or the egg!!

Saturday Creations ~ {Merry Christmas}

Welcome to Saturday Creations where I have masked several of the stamps from our PR Oh Christmas Stamp set to create my sentiment:

000_4864

I decided to go with the non-traditional colors of pink and green just to mix it up a bit.  I used oil pastels to watercolor the background and stamped a wreath from the PR Joy Stamp set with Versamark and embossed it with leaf green embossing powder:

000_4865Some twine and pink mini pearls were the perfect compliment.

The word Merry was heat embossed and then colored in with a pink marker.000_4866Can you see how I masked the sentiments to make it work?

TIP – Use a marker to add ink to one word – in this case Christmas – to get a good crisp image.

I hope you like my card!

Christmas Tags by Stephanie Gold!

Hey everyone! Stephanie Gold here and I am back with my projects using this incredible Oh Christmas Stamp Set! When I first saw this set, I immediately wanted to use that little ’25’ on a series of tags for gifts so that’s what I have for you today!
I really like to keep all of my tags different but coordinating so I always go with different sizes, shapes, and textures to create a finished set.
One of the wonderful things about this set is how versatile it is. I literally used every single stamp to make all of the cards and tags from my guest posts. Stamping the pine leaves over and over creates a fun pattern which is great for backgrounds behind one of the sentiments and the stars are the perfect accents to any project.
Thank you all for stopping by and a huge THANK YOU to Precious Remembrance for having me! I can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful Christmas creations. 🙂
Xo, Stephanie

Tuesday Ideas: A Little Christmas Sparkle

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more Tuesday Ideas inspiration using the wonderful Oh Christmas set!

2016-oct18

In addition to lovely sentiments in this set, there are some wonderful pine twig and star images!  I used them to create this one layer holiday design.  I stamped the sentiment first in black ink.  The pine twigs were stamped in green and then the stars were stamped and embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder for some festive sparkle.  I love having the sentiment as the focal point on this.  That script font is just beautiful, isn’t it?!

Enjoy the rest of your October and until next time, happy stamping!

{Inspire Me Friday} Merry & Bright

Hello, friends!  It’s Judy here with my  next installment of {Inspire Me Friday} highlighting the Oh Christmas stamp set.  Have you been enjoying all of the wonderful projects shared so far by the Design Team and our Guest Designer this month?  I know I have!

I had some fun with embossing and coloring and adding sparkle to my card for today.  Sometimes a little sparkle is fun, especially on a Christmas card!

10-14-16-prs-oh-christmas-project-3-img-0375

For this square card, I stamped the “Merry & Bright” sentiment in VersaMark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  This helped the inks and the Glossy Accents to remain inside the lines.  I colored the sentiment with various Copic markers, then drew highlights with a white gel pen before covering in Glossy Accents.  The pine branches were stamped twice using two shades of green distress inks, then finished off with a bow punched from red glitter paper and a glitter gem.

The frame  is an inlaid die cut stitched square using some fun polka dot paper.  This card looks like several layers but it is actually only two!  Nice and flat for mailing.

Create It Wednesday ~ {Merry & Bright}

I hope you’ve been enjoying the awe-inspiring holiday creations from our wonderful design team and guest designer showcasing the {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set! For today’s Create It Wednesday project, I’m swooning over the bold sentiments in this fab stamp set.

merry-poinsettia

To create this card, I used a poinsettia die to cut some watercolor paper and several shades of reds, oranges, and greens to paint the flower. I then misted the whole flower with mica spray…the sentiment does say “Bright” 🙂 I heat embossed the eye-catching sentiment with gold embossing powder, then the open space was calling for me to color it in…so I did, using the same watercolors 🙂 Some patterned paper and a gold embellie for the flower and this card is ready for the holidays!

I was trying to capture the bold shine you get with this sentiment. Imagine the color combos you can add! I’m loving it. Here’s everything you get in the {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping in…now, go create!

Design It Monday ~ {Simple Pine!}

Hello and welcome! Have you been enjoying all of the wonderful projects the design team has been sharing using the new Oh Christmas Stamp Set? I sure have!! Today I’m bringing you another coordinating card and tag set using those very stamps.

project_20160911_0013-copy

Not only is the large sentiment in this set incredible, but that little simple pine sprig is just perfect! I created a wreath with it using a die cut stitched circle as my guide. It was stamped several times with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The die cut was inlaid on a white panel with the sentiment stamped below it. I added clusters of pearls as berries and a small patterned bow to adorn the wreath.

project_20160911_0011-copy

My coordinating tag uses the simple pine sprig once again. I stamped each sprig a second time without re-inking to soften the edges just a bit. This one is adorned with embossed stars along with the pearl berries and bow.

A simple pine wreath is a traditional Christmas item. I’ve kicked it up a notch and modernized it with the teal and platinum color combo! Thanks for visiting us today!

Saturday Creations ~ {Oh Christmas Stamp Set}

I am in LOVE with this sentiment in our Precious Remembrance Oh Christmas Stamp Set and have used it for the focal point of my card:

pr-christmas1Doesn’t it look so pretty on this Christmas patterned paper? I colored the teeny tiny heart in the sentiment red to match the other red details on my card.

And to top it all off, the sentiment fits perfectly in this frame I used to make a shaker!

pr-christmasThe stitched lines in the date add an interesting detail don’t you think?
