Create It Wednesday~Let the Music Play

Welcome to another Create It Wednesday.

Today I have a black and white card for you made with the new Daily Thoughts stamp set.  Yes, we still have an old boom box & cassette tapes that hubby uses in the garage!

PRS Daily Thoughts B&W

I started by stamping the cassette tape image randomly across a black panel in Delicata White Shimmer ink.  The trio of stars was stamped in a visual triangle to add interest.  There are so many encouraging sentiments in this stamp set.  I chose one that reminds us it’s good to pause in our busy lives and enjoy the moment.  I love how it goes perfectly with the cassette image.  Tiny black splatters give the sentiment strip a bit less contrast with the black.

  PRS Daily Thoughts B&W sentiment

See the 2 little stars to the right of the big one?  There’s enough space to ink just those 2 and that’s what I did for the left side of the card.

It ties everything together and makes the black panel pop.  Be sure to check out all the great stamps and other products in the Precious Remembrance Shop store.

Happy Stamping!

Design It Monday ~ {It’s in the Bag!}

Hello and welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I have a fun project using one of the Plain White Flat Paper Bags available in the PRS store. These are a terrific size measuring 6 1/4″ x 9 1/4″.

After deciding the positioning of the cassette tape from the new Bits & Pieces: Daily Thoughts, I began the stamping. The two dotted rectangles from the Love Coupon Stamp Set are stamped in Brown Memento Ink. Next came the sentiment and little star clusters from the new Daily Thoughts Stamps Set using Ocean Tides ink.

I stamped a line border (Holiday Wishes Stamp Set) twice along the top of the bag. There are two small holes punched through both layers of the bag to thread the gold twine through. A felt star and chunky button dress up the closure.

After stamping the sentiment onto the cassette die cut, it was mounted onto fun foam for depth. I also used a Copic marker to change the color of the tape in the cassette to brown. I attached a length of brown ribbon (using glue dots) to look as though the tape was unraveling. My teammate Kelly did this one of her cards. I was so happy to see someone else remembered this frustrating event with cassette tapes! It always took a little pinky finger or pencil to wind the tape back in. Sometimes it was successful, sometimes not! Oh, the good ol’ days!

Isn’t this sentiment wonderful? The Daily Thoughts Stamp Set is full of so many like this. I can tuck a special card, inspirational reading or listening material into this bag as a gift to lift someone’s spirits. A little chocolate wouldn’t hurt either!!

Thinking of You + Video Tutorial – Erica Thompson Guest Designer

Hello Everyone! Erica here and I am so excited to be guest designer for Precious Remembrance Shop! I am loving the new Daily Thoughts stamp set and today I wanted to create a quick and simple card!

I started with a white card base and some scraps from my January Clique Kit. I wanted to use the Think of You sentiments from the stamp set on my card. I created a white panel for my card and ran in through my Big Shot using a polka dot embossing folder. I love the texture that it gives!

I have a bunch of strips of paper from my kit and I thought I could use a few of them on this card! I love all the purples and pinks in this collection! I also die cut a circle out of white cardstock and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in some slate ink. To finish off my I punched a small hole in the circle die cut and added some jute string. I tied a small bow and that was it! This card came together very quickly and I love how it turned out! Using scraps from your stash is an quick and easy way to get some cards done! Here is a look at my completed card using the Daily Thoughts stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card and are feeling inspired to use up some of your scraps! Make sure to stop by the Precious Remembrance Shop and check out all the fun stamps! You can find the Daily Thoughts stamp set HERE! You are going to have so much fun with this stamp set I just know it! Have a great day!

    This set is amazing for daily dose of positive thoughts. For dreamers like me, it reminds us to have patience and to keep going forward.

    It is also perfect for music lovers, with a retro vibe – this set has tons of possibilities.

    My project for today is really fun! I do love this patterned paper – full of lemons! Yay! It makes me smile.:)

    First, I stamped some stars on the base of my card. Add the mini doily (also available in different colors). Add some sewing thread over it for some texture.

    I stamped the cassette tape on a different paper, colored it , and cut it out. Instant embellishment! And then put it on the top of everything.

    To finish it off I added some enamel dots. And it’s probably hard to see but I added a wink of stella on my cassette tape to make it sparkly & shiny. The photo doesn’t do justice but it’s fantastic!

      Project Thursday – Totally Messy Mixed Media Art Journal

      Hello Precious Remembrance Shop friends… Helen is here. I am super excited to share my very first project with you all today!


      I created a mixed media art journal using the Totally Stamp Set and Happy Art Stamp Set. This is also my first art journal page of this year with a new mixed media book.


      First, I added the neon acrylic paints (pink, yellow, green and purple) on the page with rubber brayer. Then I grab the toiler paper roll, dibbed it into acrylic paint and stamped couple circles on the page. Last, I added some splatters on the page. Acrylic paint dries quickly.

      Once the page is dry well, I started to stamp the sentiments from Totally Stamp Set and Happy Art Stamp Set, and I stamped the brush strokes images from Totally Stamp Set on the page with Black Archival Ink Pad. I added some shadow on the bold sentiment by stamping it again with Memento Rose Bud. Archival ink stays wet for a while, so be careful not smudge the stamped images.


      Using make up sponge, I added some white acrylic paint along the edges of the page. And then using Faber Caste Big Brush Stamper Pen, I stamped the other brush stroke image from Totally Stamp Set on the top left corner and bottom right corner. This brush pen dries permanent and works well on clear photopolymer stamps like Precious Remembrance stamps.


      Remember that I told you that archival inks dries slowly? The quote on this page is still wet, so I sprinkled some of the clear glitter embossing powder on it and heat set it with my craft heater. Result is that now the quote is sparkly and shiny. I also I stamped some stars from the Totally Stamp Set with White archival ink, sprinkled with the clear glitter embossing powder, and heat set it.

      Last step is that I randomly sprayed some of the irRessistible Neon Yellow spray. That finished my art journal 🙂

      I hope you enjoy this post and are inspired to create today! Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day.

      Tuesday Ideas {You’re my Sunshine}

      Hello and welcome! It’s Kelly here and  I am so excited to be sharing my first Tuesday Ideas with you! As a child of the 80’s…I’m “totally” in love with the Totally  stamp set! I love how versatile it is, especially when paired with another stamp set like I have used on my card today. I chose to use the darling Thanks stamp set.

      I thought I would create something modern using the bold, graphic prints in the pattern papers I chose to use. I really like the juxtaposition that the script of the “totally” sentiment pairs with the papers. All of the sentiments that I used on today’s card are embossed in gold. I also chose a few burnished gold sequins to bring in an added detail of dimension.

      I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out some of your pattern papers and pair them with your favorite PRS stamps. I love that you can completely change the feel of a stamp set by the colors, patterns and details that you add. Thanks for joining me today!

      Inspire Me Friday – {totally love you}

      Hi friends!!  So excited to be back on the PRS blog sharing a project I made using the super fun Totally stamp set!  I also used the Love Coupon stamp set and some pieces from the Love Coupon Bits  &  Pieces collection.

      totally 2

      I recently purchased a pad of patterned paper from the Prima Zella Teal collection.  I saw another crafter using items from this collection and I just fell in love with it.   As I thought about what I would make for my project I thought about this pad and decided to use some for my card.  I wanted a card that could be given to a man or a woman so I pulled out some paper from the collection that would work for both and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  Some additional paper that has a kraft look to it was die cut with another rectangle die.   Pulling colors from the collection I used some VersaMagic inks in Oasis Green to stamp the border and Wheat to stamp the large word totally.   The sentiment love you is from the Love Coupon set and actually says I Love you, but I masked off the I before inking up the sentiment and stamping it in VersaFine Onyx Black.  The little hearts from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces collection were trimmed out (they were originally circles) and popped them up with foam dimensionals.  Before layering everything up on my card base I wrapped some black twine around the patterned paper piece and then tied it with a simple knot.    I hope I have given you a good idea for a card to make for a man or woman!!
