Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: Too Cool by: Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy here, and I have a fun abstract layout to share today.  Do you have any stamps that you don’t think you’ll ever have a use for?  For me, it’s the coffee cup stamp from the Coffee Love Stamp Set.  I don’t drink coffee, so I probably would never use it on a project.  I decided to challenge myself to use it anyway!  I went artsy and abstract with it, and I love how it turned out.  I used watercolor paints again instead of ink pads.  I began by randomly stamping the coffee cup stamp over and over using different colors.  I overlapped them and just made a colorful background.  I used another sheet and stamped the coffee cup using black archival ink.  I used the watercolors and ink sprays to add lots of shading and colors.  Once everything was dry, I used several punches and punched lots of circles.  You would never know what these stamps were in the beginning, so it really doesn’t matter what stamps you use for something like this!

Here you can see how awesome these random circles turned out.  Look at the difference in stamping with an ink pad versus watercolor.  It’s fun to get that wet and artsy look with the paint!  You really can’t mess this up, either.  It’s very easy to do.  I added more watercolors and ink sprays to the background and also machine stitched with black thread through some of the circles.

By punching out the circles, I had instant embellishments.  And each one is unique since I used several stamps.  In addition to the Coffee Love Stamp Set, I also used a few stamps from the Blossom Stamp Set.  I added some gold Color Shine, too, which is really fun.  I used some older American Crafts alpha stickers for my title and added in some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

Here on the right side, I created a little circle cluster.  That “LOVE” piece is a die cut from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces pack.  They’re perfect for using as embellishments or titles.  I added in some pink tangled thread and a few small Shimelle stickers.

I used a few more die cuts here from the Journey Bits & Pieces pack.  These are great for adding the date and adding fun sentiments to your project.  I love the typewriter font!

This was a lot of fun to create.  Those circles were really easy to make with all the stamps.  I hope this inspires you to get abstract and random with your stamps and create something unique and colorful!  Be sure to check out my process video to see how I created this page.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Create It Wednesday ~ Wrapping Paper Ideas

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re preparing to use your crafty ideas to jump into the holiday season. I adore customizing my Christmas present wrappings. It shouldn’t just about what’s on the inside of the paper, let’s see what we can do to the paper 🙂 I’m using the {Happy Mail} and {Oh Christmas} stamp sets for today’s collabo.OhChrHappyMail gift

I’m sure you never have leftover wrapping paper after the holidays right….ha! For this project, I use the bright white, ready to be decorated, reverse side of my leftovers! Because the surface is usually slick and shiny, I use solvent/archival quality inks like Staz-On or Archival Ink.

OhChrHappyMail giftwrap

Wrap the gift, but don’t tape anything down yet. This is super important! Just crease all of the edges so that you can see the area you want to stamp. Most presents aren’t sturdy enough to allow for a crisp image to be stamped directly onto a wrapped gift, so you’ll need to lay it on a flat desk or table to do your stamping. I used the pine sprigs and date from the {Oh Christmas} Stamp set and the tag, “open me”, and “special delivery” from the newest stamp set {Happy Mail}. And because I looooove embossing powder, the tag is done with both gold and green to match!

I hope you look at your leftover wrapping paper in a whole new light! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you “create it” in your own crafty way!

Design It Monday ~ {Just for You!}

Hi friends! I have a project just for you today to inspire your Christmas gift wrapping this year. PRS has several Christmas stamp sets that will let you put personal touches on your gifts.

Project_20171112_0001 copy

This little brown box had some kind of part we ordered through the mail. I love the cute size and decided to dress it up for Christmas. It started with the wreath from the Joy Stamp Set. After stamping it on a die cut circle, I added the small pine sprig from the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. One row along the outside of the wreath, one along the inside. I stamped them off first to give them a softer appearance. Next came the ‘Special Delivery’ sentiment (Happy Mail Stamp Set).

Project_20171112_0002 copy

The focal of the wreath consists of three fussy cut stars (Oh Christmas Stamp Set) and a little stamp (Happy Mail Stamp Set). I used a tiny hole punch on the stamp to give it a realistic look!

Project_20171112_0005 copy

The gingham and twine bow was jazzed up with a few fussy cut pine sprigs (Oh Christmas Stamp Set). Those teeny berries on the wreath were calling for some of my favorite aqua rhinestones. The paper doily adds a feminine touch. but you could leave this off if you need a masculine look.

Now what to put in this little box…hmmm…

Let It Snow! by: Amy Tsuruta

Hello, I’m back featuring my final project as a Guest Designer for the Precious Remembrance Shop!

Today I’m playing with: Oh Christmas, Fall Colors, Coffee Love.

Here’s a quick gift wrapping idea.  I’m a big fan of treat bags and the plain kraft ones are the best for stamping!  Team it up with a card and instant giftie!

I love to give + receive gift cards.  I’ll be the first one to say that I generally tuck them inside a card.  If you slip it inside stamped packaging, it takes it up a notch.  This bag didn’t take long at all to embellish.  The stamps are from the Oh Christmas stamp set.  The speckles are from the Fall Colors set and have been heat embossed in white.

My card combines the Oh Christmas + Coffee Love stamp. A pop of green puts it right into the festive spirit of things.

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by today!!!!  A big shout out to Precious Remembrance for having me as a guest designer these last couple of month!  Make sure you check out the Precious Remembrance Shop blog!

Design It Monday ~ {Special Delivery}

Hi stampers, Lisa here today! I’m taking a slight departure from fall and holiday projects to share a pretty little tag made with the Happy Mail and Sweet Pea stamp sets. Another example of how the PRS sets coordinate so beautifully together!

17 1019 004 copy

This began with stamping the pea pod (Sweet Pea) and envelope (Happy Mail) images. They were colored with Copics and fussy cut. Wink of Stella was added to the pea pod and a glitter jelly roll pen was used for the teeny heart on the envelope.

17 1019 003 copy

The flowers (Sweet Pea) were stamped onto my die cut tag then the postal lines (Happy Mail). After coloring the flowers, the envelope and pea pod were added with foam tape. The sentiment and arrows (Happy Mail) were stamped onto a banner before adding it to the tag. A few teeny hearts (Sweet Pea) were added along with sequins as accents. A junk bow and chunky button top everything off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Holiday Gift Card Holder

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, stopping by with my final project for the “Happy Mail” release.    Have you gotten your hands on this fun set yet?  I do hope so!

Now that Halloween has passed, I will slowly begin working on cards and projects for the holidays.  Today I focused on making a holiday-themed gift card envelope.  I don’t know about you, but I find we give a lot of gift cards as gifts each Christmas!

11-3-17 PRS Happy Mail Project 4 IMG_8358

I die cut the gift card envelope, then masked the edges.  I stamped the “TO” and “FROM” using the “Happy Mail” set, then took small pieces of masking paper and covered spaces below each heading.  Next, I inked the entire front using Antique Linen distress ink.  After inking, I removed the masks.

Finally, I stamped the tree from the “Sketchy Christmas” set and added colorful Stickles all over as decorations.

11-3-17 PRS Happy Mail Project 4 IMG_8358

This holiday project was quick and easy and could easily be mass produced.  Do you ever make gift card holders for the holidays?

I hope you have been inspired by the amazing cards and projects shared by the Precious Remembrance Shop design team.  We’d love to see what YOU create!

Thanks for stopping by!
