Happy Halloween Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone! Nicole here with a fun Halloween Layout I created using my scraps. It’s been awhile since I’ve dug through my scraps and it felt good to put them to good use!

Initially, I was going to turn the photos to black and white since the purple did not go with the patterns, but I decided to leave it alone and add a little purple here and there…

I added some of the circle images from the stamp set within the empty circles to make it more playful!

I used the tiny row of circles to create lines for my journaling.

Here is a video so you can see how this layout came together! Thank you for watching!

Design It Monday ~ {Beware}!

Hello! October is nearing it’s end and with that comes Halloween. Today, I’m sharing one more card featuring the Beware stamp set.

Project_20191020_0002 copy

I had the die cut banner on my desk, so I decided to begin there.

Those little Washi Pieces from the set were stamped first followed by the Beware sentiment.

Next came the polka dot borders serving as the dangle-y portion of the spider webs.

I stamped the web images then fussy cut them.

After deciding where the banner would be placed, I stamped a trio of soft gray webs then adhered the banner. A little Halloween Washi tape and rhinestones were my finishing touches.

There’s still time to add the Beware set to your stamp collection ~ it’s only $6.99!

Design It Monday ~ {No tricks, just treats}!

Hey there! It’s Lisa here today sharing a fun idea for a quick and simple Halloween goodie bag. Why buy pre-made bags when you can jazz up one of our Plain-White or Plain-Kraft Flat Paper Bags from the shop.

Project_20190915_0001-2 copy

First up, I added a strip of Washi Tape to the bag. Next came the stamped star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. Using a circle die cut border, I stamped three images from the Beware Stamp Set set using a smokey gray ink.  I stamped and punched out two orange Jack-o-lanterns then added them to the strip with foam tape. The strip of circles begins and ends with a star from the Totally Stamp Set. No circle border die, no problem. Just use punches or die cut circles for the same look.

I finished things off with two Trick or Treats sentiments (Beware Stamp Set) and some glossy bat stickers from my stash.

Add those treats and you’re good to go!

Design It Monday ~ {Eeeek, Spooky!}

September is flying by at lightening speed! That means Halloween is right around the corner. You still have time to pick up your Beware Stamp Set in plenty of time to get inky. There’s no time like the present, it’s on sale!  Here’s a little inspiration for you using that very set.

thumbnail_Project_20190827_0007 copy

Using the colors in the patterned paper as my jumping off point, I stamped three of the circle images. They’re punched out and two were added to the card with foam tape. Those yellow eyes on the PP make this just spooky enough!

There are oodles of fun images in this set with endless possibilities!

Our end of summer sales runs through September 30th.

Design It Monday ~ {Happy Halloween!}

I’m not quite ready to go full out autumn yet, but those days are fast approaching us. The bright beautiful September skies and cooling temperatures did give me a little nudge though. Here’s a not too spooky Halloween card for you in case you need one too!

Project_20190827_0005 copy

I pulled out my picket fence die again to give my smiling Jack-o-lantern (Beware stamp set) a resting place. He’s fussy cut to remove the outer sketchy lines. The fence also provided a perfect spot for the sentiment (Beware stamp set). While there are several layers on this card, the lines are clean keeping it from being too busy.

Beware_Stamps-600x600

This was quick and easy to create.

Why not give it a try. The Beware stamp set is on sale!

Inspire Me Friday – {Something New & A Year in Review}

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Rosemary here with my final Inspire Me Friday post for the year.   This post is a little bittersweet as this is also my final post as a member of the Precious Remembrance Design team.  I want to thank Dyane to asking me to rejoin the team this year.  It has been a lot of fun designing with Precious Remembrance Shop stamps over the last year, but sadly I must say goodbye.  My final project is one combining the Everyday stamp set with the Coffee Love stamp set.

prs coffee 2

For this card I decided to use a piece of embossed rose gold paper from a pad I recently picked.  The papers are from DCWV and the pad has glitter papers in it, these embossed ones, metallic and several others.  I just fell in love with the embossed paper and had to use it.  I simply cut two pieces and adhered them to a panel of white cardstock that I had die cut with a rectangle die.  To make my coffee cup I first stamped some white cardstock with the swipes background image from Everyday using Memento Desert Sand ink.   I then stamped the coffee cup from Coffee Love over the stamping with VersaMark watermark ink and embossed it using copper embossing powder.  Did that again for the center band of the cup as well as the lid.   I trimmed out all the pieces and before adhered them I stamped the heart circle image from Coffee Love on the band with the Desert Sand ink and then stamped the sentiment from Everyday in VersaFine CLAIR  Nocturne over the top.   The band and the lid were adhered with foam tape and then the cup was attached to the card front.   A clean and simple, but somewhat elegant birthday card!

Now that I have shared my final project with you I would like to share my favorite projects from the last year.   First up is a card I made using the Daily Thoughts stamp set along with items from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack.prs card

This next project uses several different PRS stamp sets.  The fun Sketchy Alphabet, Positive Thoughts and Blossom.  Love the clean and simple design!

Another favorite project from this past year is this card.  This card uses images from DIY and Little Things.

Do you see a pattern forming?  Most of my favorites center around stamping!  This next project is full of stamping with another favorite PRS set, Fall Colors.

My last project is probably my most favorite and I think showcases perfectly just how much fun you can have with PRS stamp sets!  This card was made with the Beware stamp set, New Day stamp set and one of my go to PRS stamp sets:  Positive Thoughts.

I hope I inspired you to pull out your Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets and start mixing and matching to see what you can create!  Have a very happy new year!

Inspire Me Friday – {happy halloween}

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you had a great week!  I’m popping in today with a fun little Halloween card that I made using four different (yep… four!) Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets!   The four sets are Beware (currently on sale for $7.99!), Fall Colors, Positive Thoughts and New Day.

October 31 3

As I thought about what I was going to make for this week’s post I went through all of my PRS stamp sets.  I knew I was going to use the Beware set, but wanted to mix things up a bit and when I saw the Positive Thoughts set I thought the circles image would work perfectly with the icon images from the Beware set.  So I started playing around with those two sets and working out my layout.   As I worked on the design I threw in the dots images from the New Day set and really liked what I saw.  I pulled out traditional fall/Halloween colors and got to work putting together my final design.   Once all the stamping was done I decided that the card needed just a little bit more so I added in the little splatter images from the Fall Colors set using Delicata Celestial Copper ink.  You can’t tell it is copper in the photo, but it looks really pretty in real life.    The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Halloween/spooky so I’m going to add this to their gallery.   And make sure you come back to the blog tomorrow as there will be a fun hop going on to celebrate the release of a new Precious RemembranceShop stamp set!  YAY!!

Have a wonderful day!

Design It Monday ~ {Happy Halloween!}

Hello, Lisa here today with a ‘too cute to spook’ Halloween card! We have a certain little trick or treater who is very excited to dress up and knock on doors in gramma & papa’s neighborhood. She loves it when gramma’s neighbor Miss Paula turns on all the inflatable Halloween decorations when we’re out for a tricycle ride! I think we’ll hand deliver this card to Miss Paula as a special thank you.

Project_20181020_0005 copy

I stamped four of the circle images from the Beware Stamp Set, punched them out, then added them to a purple die cut tag with foam tape. After threading the polka dot ribbon on the tag I adhered it to a card base embossed with stars. The Happy Halloween sentiment is underlined with polka dots to mimic the ribbon treatment.

Just a little FYI…the Beware Stamp Set is currently on sale for $7.99…what a bargain!

Thanks for visiting, we love it when you stop by!

Create It Wednesday~Happy Halloween

Welcome to another edition of Create It Wednesday.  I’ve had a little 3×4 inch black bag in my stash waiting to be used for several years.  The adorable PRS Beware stamp set inspired me to turn it into a goodie bag for a friend.

PRS DT Halloween Bag no wm

I stamped the Trick or Treat border 4 times in black ink and Happy Halloween 3 times in purple ink.  I trimmed each into strips and attached them to the bag front.  The cute Jack O Lantern image was stamped in orange ink onto the little scalloped circle die cut.  For a bit of sparkle I added orange glitter glue to the eyes and mouth.

PRS DT Halloween Bag Close up

A white crochet thread bow was tied onto the die cut before attaching it to the bag.  Black, purple and orange twines were tied in a bow around the handle to finish it off.  Now I just have to find my shreds and add the candy!

Are you ready for Halloween?  Why not grab one of these sets for yourself while they’re on sale for just $7.99.  I’ll see you next time.
