Saturday Creations ~ {THX}

I don’t know about you guys but there doesn’t even seem to be enough time to breathe this holiday season so I wanted to create a Christmas Thank You card that was quick and easy to mass produce.  I used the PR Oh Christmas Stamp Set and a piece of paper that was laying on my desk leftover from a 6×6 paper pad.

oh-christmas-500x500Since this card is going to a younger adult, I decided to use text speak so they would get the message.

Here’s my card:

pr-thx1I used the pine boughs from the stamp set – cool, huh?!

I added some white sequins for bling, polka dot paper, and non-traditional colors.  Here’s a closer view:

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and don’t forget to send THX cards!

{Inspire Me Friday} A Christmas “Thank You So Much”

Hello, everyone!  Its Judy here with a Christmas thank you card that is quick and easy to make!  I paired up two sets for my card: Oh Christmas and Thanks.

oh-christmas-500x500thanks-stamp-set3-500x500

I started out by embossing the sentiment in white on black card stock and die cut it into a label using a Spellbinders die.  Next, I drew a circle on a white card stock panel and stamped the pine boughs from the Oh Christmas set to make a wreath using two different green distress inks (Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters).  Finally, I used gold thread to mount the label to the white panel and framed it in black before adhering onto the green card base.  The final touch of gold and red Stickles on the wreath added some needed sparkle!

Even though there are several layers, this card is still very flat — that is always important to me, especially for mailing purposes!

I hope you have enjoyed our Design Team’s week of Christmas thank you cards.  It always amazes me how well the different Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets work together, no matter the season!  I’m sure I will need a bunch of thank you notes after Christmas, and I know what stamp sets I can combine to make them!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {Happy Art and Oh Christmas} Thanks

Let’s wrap up this year with an expression of gratitude! Today, I’m using lots of stamp surgery (if you’ve seen my posts, you know I’m a fan) to create a subway art Christmas Thank You card. happy-stamping-oh-christmasfull

I’m always excited to give and receive thoughtful gifts, so what a way to say thanks with this card. When creating this look, I arrange my base set of stamps on a large stamp press/block, rotating them different directions, until I get a design I like. I ink up all the stamps at once and press really well into the center of my paper. Sidebar- I have to say that these stamps ink up and stamp fabulously every time! Then I go back and fill in the blank area, working from the center outward. All you do is change the orientation of the stamp from the previous time you used it.

happy-stamping-oh-christmas

I wanted to include traditional Christmas colors of red, green, and gold and the main sentiment from the {Happy Art Stamp Set} was just the right opportunity by using some embossing powder. The rest of the stamping was done with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I added some shadows in those big, amazing, open sentiments from {Oh Christmas} and around the embossing using a W3 Copic marker (it’s a perfect match for the ink!). I added a strip of gold glitter tape and called it a night.

Thanks for joining me and I hope this gives you a way to mix your holiday and everyday stamps sets! Have a very Merry Christmas and see ya in the New Year!

Tuesday Ideas: A Holiday Thank You

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa here with my final post for Precious Remembrance Shop.  I am stepping down from the design team and continuing on in my creative journey.  I have truly enjoyed my time spent with Dyane and her amazingly talented team and will sincerely miss being a part of all the wonderful creativity here!

For my farewell post, I created a holiday themed thank you card.  At season’s end, we’ll all need a few of these!

2016-dec13

I used one of the pine images from the Oh Christmas set to decorate the fun coffee cup from the Coffee Love set.  I love the clean fonts of the sentiments in the Thanks stamp set and selectively inked one to label the cup.  The trio of stars are also from the Oh Christmas set and I stamped and then embellished them with a gold Wink of Stella brush marker to add a touch of festive sparkle.  The green chevron washi tape I found in my stash and used it to ground the coffee cup (please excuse the pun).  The cup is popped up with foam dots for dimension.  This design is a very simple one to create.  I love the sparkle of the stars (they remind me of Starbucks’ gold stars…)!

I hope you’re well on your way to finishing up your holiday cards.  Don’t forget to make a few thank you cards while you’re at it!

Wishing you all the best in the new year ahead!

Design It Monday ~ {Thank you!}

Hello stampers! The fun continues here this week as the design team shares Christmas thank you projects.

16-1210-002-copy

This card began with a sentiment image from the Holiday Wishes Stamp Set. I trimmed out the rectangle box then added a tag stamped with a thank you sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set. I heat embossed the sentiment in Liquid Platinum to coordinate with the glittered stars on the background paper. Two fussy cut pine trees from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set were adhered to the back of the rectangle. A large vellum snowflake was added to the card along with the stamped images.

This card was easy to make and could be quickly mass produced. The time to fussy cut the trees was minimal. Stamp, stamp, snip snip, glue glue ~ viola!!

Saturday Creations ~ {Using Three PR Stamps Sets to Say Merry Christmas!}

It’s almost Christmas and today I am showing you how well all of the Precious Remembrance stamps sets work together to make one special card.  I showcased the sentiment from the PR Oh Christmas Stamp set and paired it with the PR Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and for a twist, I used the jar from the PR Oh So Fun Stamp Set!  I hope you like the result:

Here’s a close up:

pr-christmas-hwCan you recognize the stamps from the different stamps sets?

Tip – Don’t be afraid to mix and match, even if this leads to an unexpected twist!  But in order to do this, you MUST have more than one of the FABULOUS PR stamp sets.  Head on over to the Precious Remembrance Shop and start shopping.  These stamp sets make Wonderful gifts!

{Inspire Me Friday} Merry Christmas Coffee and the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello, friends!  It’s Judy here with a special installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring two of my favorite sets: Coffee Love and Sketchy Christmas.  I hope you have been inspired by all of the Design Team cards and featured stamp sets this week…I know I have!

As luck would have it, today is also Day One of the week-long Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop, and Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors!

2016-winter-clbhWe are giving away a great prize as part of the hop…the “Totally” stamp set!

 

In honor of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop starting today, I made a card featuring my favorite coffee cup stamp and some fun patterned papers.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-img_1772

I started out by stamping the coffee cup onto kraft card stock as well as a gingham patterned paper and plain white card stock.  I fussy cut and paper-pieced the coffee cup before adhering it to the card base.  The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is stamped in green distress ink above two strips of coordinating holiday patterned paper.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-close-up-img_1779

I embossed the cream card base with a linen embossing plate…I love the rustic feel it adds to the card!  See that popped up circle snowflake?  I punched the circle from another coordinating  patterned paper, centering the snowflake image!  I finished it off by adding a red gem to the center, edging the circle with diamond Stickles, and popping it up on foam dots.  I also filled in the snowflake with a clear, sparkly gel pen…you can see it in just the right light!

Do you have this awesome Coffee Love stamp set?  It is a perfect set to use if you are participating in the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop this week!  I’m thinking this card will go to one of my kids’ teachers  for Christmas along with a Starbuck’s gift card inside!

Thanks for stopping by…and Happy Friday!

Create It Wednesday ~ {New Day & Oh Christmas Tag Team}

Versatility is the name of the game for today’s Create It Wednesday card! I love when I can combine stamp sets to create great projects, and the result was exactly that when I used the {New Day} and {Oh Christmas} stamp sets. new-day-oh-christmas

newdohc2

I started by creating the focal point for my card, the sideways tag with an inlaid die cut snowflake. The brushstroke stamp from {New Day} was perfect to bring in different hues of blue ink (Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Weathered Wood Distress Inks). I even used the medium sized dot from the set to stamp the hole reinforcer on the tag! For the sentiment, I used some masking to stamp “let it snow” from {Oh Christmas} just once.

A few sparkly accents with some Wink of Stella and sequins on the tips of the snowflake and dotting the “i” in the sentiment and we have a wintery collabo 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to see my project and join us Friday when Judy continues our cool combinations of stamp sets for Christmas cards!

Tuesday Ideas: School Themed Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more inspiration for Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I’m sharing a school themed Christmas card which uses two stamp sets from the Precious Remembrance Shop store:  School Days and Oh Christmas.  This time of year, school children often take a little something to school for their teachers and this clean and simple card is just perfect for the occasion!

2016-dec6-space

I had so much fun making this card!  I found some fun, plaid washi tape recently and adhered it to the bottom of the card .  The “MERRY” and “Christmas” are both partial sentiments from the Oh Christmas set.  I inked up selective portions and stamped them.  I fussy cut the letters in “MERRY” and drew little red polka dots on them to add a little festive element.  I arranged them randomly to make them come alive and popped each one up with foam dots for dimension.  The school bus was stamped in black ink also and left uncolored to keep the overall design simple.  I can see this going to a bus driver!  They need a little of our gratitude too!

I hope you’re making progress in your holiday card making!  Isn’t it crazy just how quickly time goes by this time of year?  With clean and simple designs, you can get your cards made and in the mail on time!  I hope this inspires you somehow as you are putting things together this holiday season!

Until next time, happy stamping!
