Project Thursday ~ Personalized Gift Box With Stamps

Hello everyone… Helen is here today. So… Christmas is in less than 30 days now! I am getting starts to wrap some gifts. How about you? Today I have couple gifts boxes to share with you that you can make and personalized them with Precious Remembrance stamps.

I found several tutorials how to make boxes using Envelope Punch Board. I tried a tutorial to make these gift boxes today. These boxes are perfect for A2 handmade card set or flat gifts. First, I trimmed the cardstocks and scored them but before I put them together, I stamped the patterns on them.

On this first gift box, I stamped the triangle from Everyday Stamp Set on the red cardstock using the VersaFine Clair – Glamorous ink pad. After the images dried, I put the box together and glue it with permanent adhesive glue.

PRS-GiftBox2-HelenGullett

I stamped the circle seal image from Happy Mail Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous ink pad on a white cardstock and I punched it with 1″ circle punch. I added it on the back flap of the box.

For the tag, I stamped the label from Happy Mail Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis on a white cardstock, and then I trimmed it with paper trimmer. I cut out another white cardstock using a tag die and then I added the label on it.

PRS-GiftBox4-HelenGullett

On the back of the tag, I stamped the To and From from the Happy Mail Stamp Set with the VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis ink pad. And then I tied it up on the box with natural twine along with the christmas light charms.

On the second box, I used the stamp steps I did to make the red gift box above. On this one, I used the Everyday Stamp Set and VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis ink pad.

And for the tag, I used the one from Joy Stamp Set that I stamped on the white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis ink pad, and then I trimmed it with paper trimmer. I wrote the year, but I stamped the message using one of the sentiment from the Everyday Stamp Set. that I stamped it with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne (black) ink pad.

I hope this post today give you some ideas how to wrap your gifts in different ways this year. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Tuesday Ideas {Special Delivery}

Hello! It’s Kelly here today sharing a Christmas design using an assortment of fun stamps, including the newly released Everyday stamp set. I  love how versatile it is and it really does live up to its name! I used the oval/circular image from the set to create the background for today’s card. I used white pigment ink and stamped it onto a piece of Kraft cardstock that measures 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I rotated the image to get some variation in the design and to give it some extra visual movement.

I stamped the large Christmas sentiment, which is from the Oh Christmas stamp set,  directly onto the Kraft panel using black ink. I used my MISTI so that I could get a good impression.

 The red and white striped “postal” image, which is from the Happy Mail stamp set, is stamped on a strip of white cardstock and then adhered underneath the large Christmas sentiment using liquid glue. I ran it through my sewing machine using a zig zag stitch for some added detail.

The rest of the images are also from the “Happy Mail” stamp set. I stamped the envelope image onto a piece of red cardstock using black ink and then popped it onto the Kraft piece using foam squares. I stamped a trio of images onto a strip of white cardstock; special delivery, green chevrons, and the “Happy Mail” seal image. I popped this piece onto the red piece for even more dimension. The finishing touches are the fussy cut “Just for You” stamp, the holly embellishment, and a few sparkling gems. I adhered the entire focal piece onto an A2 white card base.  This design could work well for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, and more; all you would need is to change up the colors and main sentiment!

Inspire Me Friday – {Happy Birthday}

Hello and happy black Friday everyone!  Rosemary here with another Inspire Me Friday post using the very versatile Everyday stamp set.   Today I have combine the Everyday set with the super fun (and also very versatile!) Happy Mail stamp set to create a birthday card.

birthday letters 2

The starting point for my card were some lovely winter themed 6×6 papers that I found in my stash.  I pulled out the soft gray/green gingham piece, stamped it three time with the envelope image from Happy Mail using a gray/green ink that was several shades darker than the paper and then trimmed out the envelopes.  Lucky for me there was a strip of the woodgrain pattern that had the same soft grey/green in it that I could use for my design.  I trimmed the piece down a little bit to fit my card front and then stamped it with the little hearts background image from the Everyday set with the darker ink.   A piece of off white cardstock was adhered to my kraft cardstock base and then I adhered the stamped panel.  Up in the left hand corner I stamped a sweet little postage stamp image and the cancellation lines in a light gray ink.  The envelops were adhered to the card front with foam dots.    The sentiments from the Everyday set were stamped on some kraft paper in VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne, trimmed out and adhered to finish off the card.    This is a more feminine design, but it could definitely work for a guy by switching up the colors and papers.   Precious Remembrance Shop is having a Black Friday sale so make sure you check it out!

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Create It Wednesday~Time for Tags

You’ve probably noticed there is a lot of tag making in blogland right now.  I joined in the craze using 3 Precious Remembrance Stamp sets:  Everyday, Happy Mail and Oh Christmas.
PRS DT Tag Much Better sharperThe sketchy circle from Everyday was white embossed on the large die cut tag to make snowballs.  Team member Lisa came up with that idea and I love it!   Distress Oxide Faded Jeans was used for the emboss resist technique and tiny white dots were added with a pen.   I stamped a branch from Oh Christmas at the top and bottom of a smaller tag using Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio.  The words from Happy Mail were stamped with Faded Jeans and I attached the small tag to the large one using foam tape.  Luckily, this piece of ribbon was just the right color and the dots tied in perfectly.  I thought a bit of sparkle was needed, so finished off with a glittery white dot.  Now I just have to buy the perfect gift!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US and I’ll see you next time.

Design It Monday ~ {Special Delivery!}

Hello, hello! Need a little break from your Thanksgiving and Christmas card making? How about something with a touch whimsy today. I remembered this cute paper with all of the little houses and the wheels were in motion!

First up was the gray panel. After die cutting it I stamped the hearts image from the Everyday stamp set around the edges. I layered on the die cut house paper then added this to the aqua card base.

The focal element for my card was created with a cluster of images. The envelope (stamped with hearts from the Everyday stamp set) and Happy Mail circle are both from the Happy Mail stamp set. The sentiments added to the picket fence are also from the Everyday and Happy Mail sets. And finally, to kick the sweetness factor up a notch, I added a trio of Rose Quartz buttons.

Thanks for spending a bit of your day with us!

Project Thursday ~ Mass Produce Thank You Cards For Winter

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Cards-HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here again today with mass-produce card ideas for this coming Winter / Christmas season.

Every month starting November 2018 until May 2019, I make 60 Thank You cards for donation at a Kids Camp programs. When comes to making a lot of cards or mass producing, I like to use clean-and-simple (CAS) style. I use these three CAS card designs for Winter camp which I made 20 cards for each design.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card1-HelenGullett

On this first one layer & CAS design, I used the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and the Fall Colors Stamp Set. I stamped the trees and dots with white archival ink pad to create the background. And then I stamped the sentiment from Everyday Stamp Set under the trees with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card2-HelenGullett

On this second CAS design, I use the Joy Stamp Set and Everyday Stamp Set. I stamped the wreaths with white archival ink pad to create the background, and then I stamped the Joy word inside one of the wreath with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous. For the sentiment, I stamped it on white cardstock with Memento Desert Sand ink pad, trimmed them into sentiment banner, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card3-HelenGullett

And for this third CAS card, I use the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped the evergreen leaf with white archival ink pad on the top of the card to create the background border. And I use the Everyday Stamp Set for the sentiment that I stamped it on white cardstock VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and trimmed it into sentiment banner. I wrapped the twine around the card, added the sentiment banner, and tied it up a bow. I added a little bit adhesive glue on the back of the sentiment banner to keep it stay on top of the twine.

These cards are done and ready for the kids at the camp to write thank you notes.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Tuesday Ideas {A wonderful holiday Season}

Hello, it’s Kelly here today! The month is already almost half over which means the countdown to Christmas is on! Christmas crafting is always so much fun, especially when you have fun stamps to play with like the amazing Joy stamp set! I love all of the fun images and it pairs so nicely with the Everyday stamp set for an unexpected design!

I created the wonky circle piece using one of the images from the Everyday stamp set and adhered it to an A2 card base. On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the wreath image using Chartreuse ink in the left hand corner. I stamped the hearts from the Everyday stamp set in the bottom right corner as well as some additional sentiments from the Joy stamp set for a fun, collage style card.

The focal image is stamped in black and cut out and adhered to the card using foam squares for some extra dimension. I also stamped the skinny sentiment and trimmed it out and added it to the focal image where it says Message:. I thought that it gave the card an extra pop of color and balance. Of course I also added a few red Nuvo drops around the wreath to mimic some festive berries. A simply bow of red baker’s twine finishes off this collage Christmas card.

Inspire Me Friday – {let it snow!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Rosemary here with a new Inspire Me Friday post.   I’m sharing a card today that I made using the Everyday stamp set along with the fun Oh Christmas stamp set.  My card isn’t a Christmas card, but one that you could send out at any time during the winter season.

let it snow

I started with a A2 sized piece of white cardstock and stamped the background image from the Everyday stamp set that looks like a snow flurry across the top of the piece in watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  I then pulled out my Distress Oxide inks and lightly inked up the top of the panel where the embossing is with Broken China distress oxide ink and fading it out toward the middle of the card.   I placed my panel in my stamping tool and then using a scalloped rectangle die as a guide I placed the sentiment from Oh Christmas on the panel.  I removed the die and then stamped the sentiment in VersaFine CLAIR Morning Mist ink.  The panel was then die cut with the scalloped rectangle die.    I set aside the die cut rectangle and then adhered the panel to a white cardstock base.  The rectangle was then adhered using foam dimensionals.  I finished with some white baker’s twine tied in a bow.    I really like the way the stamped image looks like a flurry of snow!

Create It Wednesday~Christmas Cards

Once again it’s time to ramp up holiday crafting, so I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  PRS DT Nov both no wmI used three PRS sets including Everyday Stamp Set, Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set.  The A2 size card was done by stamping the large background image from Everyday Stamp Set using Distress Ink faded jeans on a watercolor panel.  PRS DT Nov first no wmThen I spritzed with water & let the ink spread on it’s own.  When it was dry I stamped a Sketchy Christmas tree in Distress Oxide lucky clover and Merry Christmas in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  A stitched rectangle was dry embossed for a frame and I popped up the Happy New Year sentiment strip.  To finish things off, I added silver confetti to match the silver mat.  Sometimes it’s fun to make a smaller card, like my second one which is 3 1/2 x 4  3/4.  PRS DT Nov second no wmAgain I stamped the background image from Everyday Stamp Set.  This time I used pumice stone Distress Ink & blended with a wet brush.  Kind of looks like mountains–perfect for a modern, rustic design.  I stamped the triangle tree from Sketchy Christmas three times in lucky clover Distress Oxide and the word Joy from the Joy Stamp Set in Distress Oxide candied apple.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added a couple extra layers of cardstock for dimension.  I sponged the pumice stone ink on the card front before adding the panel.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your holiday cardmaking.  See you next time.

Design It Monday ~ {Let it Snow!}

Hello and welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I was in the mood to create something other than a card for you, so how about a festive holiday banner. Let’s take a look, shall we.

I created three separate banner tags using chipboard pieces. They were each covered with vintage cream paper. Next, I distressed the edges with a warm brown ink then randomly stamped the paint swipes and splatters image (Everyday Stamp Set) using an aqua ink. After adding the patterned paper I topped each tag with the fussy cut  ‘let it snow’ sentiment (Oh Christmas Stamp Set). To connect the tags I used a coordinating twine. The spaces in between were filled with a trio of circle images from the Everyday Stamp Set. I suppose you could think of these as snowballs! A few rhinestones and Wink of Stella went on for that added holiday sparkle!
