Meet Our November Guest Designer!

Hello everyone!:) Glad to be back here with another exciting news! We have an amazing guest designer who will be joining us this month showcasing more of the Oh Christmas stamp set. And if you’ve been following us since Day 1, you probably remember her as of one our designers before. She’s very talented and so happy that she’s finally back in her blog creating so many fun ideas!:) And she’s now here to inspire us more!:)

Please welcome Andrea Budjack!

Hello there, my name is Andrea and I am so excited to be back creating with my favorite stamps at Precious Remembrance this month!  A little about me.  Grew up a country girl, moved to the city and longing for a country life again.  I am a mother to two boys, a full-time teacher to these two boys, an entertainer most days and definitely a full-time housekeeper (comes with the territory).  In my much needed spare time (see I didn’t say quiet time), I enjoy being crafty.  I have been creating for over ten years and am drawn to sharing my creative process on my blog regularly.

Here are some of her amazing work using our stamp sets before. Stay tune for more!:)

Distressed Christmas Wreath Card by Stephanie Gold!

Hey everyone! Stephanie Gold here with my last guest post for Precious Remembrance. I have had such a great time working with the Oh Christmas stamp set and I hope you have been loving it too!! I have one last card to share with you today:
I recently purchased my very first distress inks so I wanted to give those a shot on a Christmas card. I created a wreath using the two different pine leaf images and a couple different green colored inks. I accented the wreath with red stars and then distressed the outside edge of the card lightly using Antique Linen.
I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock, cut it out into a banner shape, and then lightly distressed those edges as well. I popped the banner up using dimensional adhesive and finished the card off with a little gold wrapped twine. 🙂
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have an incredible November! Happy Autumn everyone!
Xo, Stephanie

Tuesday Ideas: Holiday Simplicity

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more clean and simple inspiration using the Oh Christmas stamp set!  For today, I created a very simple, one layer design.

2016-nov1

I stamped the sentiment first in black.  A trio of pine boughs was stamped on either side of the sentiment in green.  I added a touch of sparkle to the words using pearlescent watercolors.

Yet another design that is easily mass produced in time for the holidays!  How are your cards coming along?

Until next time, happy stamping!

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. 🙂

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!

Merry & Bright by Stephanie Gold

Hey everyone! Stephanie here again and I am thrilled to be back for another guest post using this incredible stamp set: Oh Christmas.
I have a more traditional Christmas card for you today that still keeps in with my simple aesthetic.
Using a candy cane-like pattern paper, I created a background that would accent my sentiment… the large and festive “merry & bright” – I love this sentiment so much!! It’s super versatile too.. I’m already picturing it in my December album on journaling cards and on tags that I make each year for family gifts. 🙂
My background is kraft paper ran through with a cover plate die and topped with a doily for a feminine and soft touch. How fun would it be to put this card into an envelope stamped with those green leaves from this set?? I think I will have to go back and try that out haha.
Thank you all so much for having me back!!! Enjoy your awesome Christmas stamp sets and tag me in your photos on IG!! @goldensimplicity_sg I would LOVE to see what you create!! Much love!
Xo, Stephanie

Tuesday Ideas: Color Blocked Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa and I’m back with another clean and simple holiday card idea for you!  Once again, I’m using the beautiful Oh Christmas stamp set.

2016-oct4

I decided to use one of the fantastic sentiments in the set as the focal point and this is what transpired.  I used two different bright colors to create a color block beneath the main panel.  These were mounted on a piece of black cardstock for a little more contrast.  The assembled piece was popped up with foam dots for dimension.  You could use any two colors you wanted and even vary colors from card to card for a wide variety of holiday cards!  So simple and so fun!

October is here and the countdown continues.  I hope you’re getting a head start on your card making and crafting!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Clean and Simple Christmas Card by: Stephanie Gold!

Hey everyone!! Stephanie Gold here and I am so excited to be guest posting on the PR blog today!! Has everyone ordered up their Oh Christmas stamp set yet? Oh my goodness, I ADORE this set. {See here for the first card I made with it during it’s release and the blog hop.} For this next card I wanted something very simple and light.
 
The Christmas sentiment is one of my favorites. I love the fonts!!! I accented the sentiment by creating a flowing stream of stars from one corner of the card to the other in red and pigment gold. Then I finished it off with a bit of seam binding as ribbon and scrunched it… I loved the simple turn out but if you like a little more action, you could easily add sequins, rain stones, or even some Wink of Stella.
Thank you so much for having me!!! I will be back soon with a couple more cards made with this lovely set. In the meantime, if you haven’t gotten your hands on one, you can find it HERE.
Much love! Xo, Stephanie

Tuesday Ideas: Framed

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more Tuesday Ideas inspiration!

The Oh Christmas set is in the spotlight again this week and I created yet another clean and simple design for you!  This time, I used one of the pretty pine bough images to create a frame for the sentiment.

2016-sept20-tuesideasxmas

I stamped the pine boughs around the edge of the card, varying the height and double stamping each one to achieve richer color.  I then used a white glitter Wink of Stella brush to apply a layer of sparkly frost to the stamped images.  The sentiment was stamped in black inside the frame.  The main panel is popped up with foam dots for dimension.

If you’re looking for some quick holiday cards to make this year, this may be the design you need!

Until next time, happy stamping!
