Inspire Me Friday ~ Halloween Treat Box

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, with my next project featuring the {Happy Mail} stamp set!

I made one more Halloween project, pairing up the {Happy Mail} stamp set with the fun  {Beware} stamp set and a die cut milk carton (shared with me from my wonderful design teammate Lisa).

I stamped images on each side of the flattened milk carton before assembling.  It was a lot of fun combining images from these two sets (along with some splatters from the {Fall Colors} set)!

Here is the front of the box, followed by views of each side as you spin the carton around:

I plan on filling this carton with some yummy Halloween treats for one of my little neices or nephews.  What a fun way to receive some goodies this Halloween!

I hope you have been inspired by the design teams’ projects this week.  Be sure to share your creations with us using #preciousremembrancestamps on your social media pages!

Design It Monday ~ {Special Delivery!}

Hidyho stampers! Lisa here today with a fun little Halloween treat bag that’s super easy to make. If you have a Misti you can knock several of these out in no time!

I lined up all of the circle images from the Beware stamp set on my Misti then stamped them with black ink. Next came the Open Me sentiment from the Happy Mail stamp set. Keep in mind how you want the bag to be opened when stamping this image. I colored the images with Tombow Brush Markers then added some glitter to the outer circle with a Gelly Roll pen. I decided to make the date image pop a little more, so I stamped it on purple cardstock then punched it out. It’s added to the bag with a big foam dot.

The envelope from the Happy Mail stamp set was stamped twice onto the textured lime green cardstock then fussy cut. I added more of that Gelly Roll glitter on the teeny hearts. After die cutting a banner, I stamped the deliver sentiment (Happy Mail). I added this to the tag then tucked the two envelops in.

I gussied up the tag with a fun junk bow then addressed it. This will go to the two little kiddos across the street. I’ll tuck it into their mailbox as a fun surprise on Halloween since Trick or Treat takes place the weekend before. Word has it they’re crazy for suckers! Looks like they’re getting treats from us twice this year. Its okay, they’re a pair of cutie patooties and totally worth it!

Hello, I’m back featuring a project using some goodies from Precious Remembrance Shop.

Today I’m playing with Happy Mail + Beware:

Here’s how I was inspired!  I inked up those fun circle images from the Beware set in a charcoal ink.  It gives it a worn look and just what I was looking to complement my design.  I wanted to have a handful of the images included on my card so I staggered them with spacing and foam adhesives.

I managed to include two sentiments, one from each stamp set.  The Happy Mail set is perfect for card + envelope designs:

This has already gone postal and hopefully it will brighten the recipient’s day!

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by today!!!!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Halloween Treat Bag

Hello, everyone!  I’m so excited that October has arrived because I love making Halloween projects for my little nieces and nephews!  I love the excitement of Halloween, the costumes and the scary stories, the coming of fall and the cooler weather…and who doesn’t love the candy?

My project this week features our newest release set, “Happy Mail,” paired with the fun “Beware” set.  I made a quick and easy treat bag for a little one…and I will likely make more!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-1

I punched circles from card stock that matched the polka dots on my treat bags (from the dollar section at Target — a great find!).  On one side I stamped “TO:” while I stamped the “FROM” on the reverse side.

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-2

I combined stamps from both sets to make the topper for the bag. I thought the “open me if you dare” went perfectly with the upper-case OPEN ME!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-3

I also thought it was a fun touch to stamp “Happy Halloween” directly onto the bag. Can you spy it at the bottom?

Create It Wednesday ~ {Happy Halloween Mail}

What an awesome Wednesday to share a CAS Halloween card and matching envelope using the crazy versatile {Happy Mail Stamp Set}…which I of course combined with the wickedly great {Beware Stamp Set}.

BewareHappyMail

My favorite color combo for the witching season is lime green, purple, orange, and black. Without the lime though, I’d be lost 🙂 I stamped the circular images from the {Beware Stamp Set} to create patterned paper. Using 3 nesting circle dies to created the focal point, I pitched out (put in the recycle bin) the middle ring so that the black card base would show between the out and inner most circles. I stamped the sentiments and arranged them from longest to shortest. This stair step look works great as a design element for CAS cards.

BewareHappyMail2

And who wouldn’t want to send this card in a matching envelope…which by the way, I’m really feeling mail art right now. The new {Happy Mail Stamp Set} had just what I needed!

Design It Monday ~ {Sweet Treats!}

Hello PRS friends! Lisa here today with my first Design It Monday post featuring the newly released Happy Mail stamp set. Dyane has challenged the team to create a Halloween themed project this month. I decided to make a fun treat box!

17 0914 007 copy

I stamped the checklist image from the Happy Mail stamp set replacing one of the choices with ‘Sweet Treats’ from the Beware stamp set. I popped this onto a little panel made with patterned paper. Using selective inking on the small row of arrows (Happy Mail), I checked the items off on the list.

17 0914 010 copy

I stamped the spider web from the Beware set then added a fun pumpkin button and a couple of tiny hand cut banners. After everything was added to the milk carton I stamped one of the Washi images from the Beware set. It’s added to the checklist panel to look as though the tape is holding it in place.

17 0914 011 copy

When deciding what to put in the little milk carton and who it would be for, thoughts of my son being a little trick or treater came to mind. It was like taking a walk down memory lane with his costumes running through my head!

He’s a grown man and a daddy now, but he still likes a certain sweet treat!

Thanks for stopping by today. Stay tuned for some very fun projects from the design team this go around!

Saturday Creations ~ {SPOOKY}

Today I have a Spooktacular card using the new Precious Remembrance School Days Stamp set along with the Precious Remembrance Beware Stamp Set.

It may be a little scary for young kids but would be great for older trick or treaters:

I cut out the windows in the school bus and added two images to create a SPOOKY bus ride for sure!  The word SPOOKY is great for the license plate and is another image from the Beware Stamp Set.  The googlie eyes make the bus seem alive and the black moon with the bats adds to the terror!

Up close, you can see that this is no ordinary little girl!

The background was created with a variety of sprays, paints, splats, and watercolor pencils.

I hope you like this twist on the School Days theme!  Happy Halloween!

Project Thursday – Spooky Bus Ride…

 

Well, it’s Thursday and time for one final Project Thursday post showcasing the School Days set.

I combined the School Days Set with last year’s Halloween set – Beware.

I thought these die cut ghosts would look perfect with the school bus to make a CAS Halloween card.  I stamped and cut the bus adding 6mm sequins for the headlights.

So, that’s a wrap for this set and Project Thursdays – but stay tuned…..a new holiday set is releasing soon!

{create it wednesday} eeek!!

Happy Wednesday PRS fans!!!   I popping in today with a spooky little card that combines two older Precious Remembrance Shop sets (Fall Colors and Beware) with the newly released School Days set.   I love paper piecing the school bus and this time I turned it into a spooky one.

I stamped the bus on some patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye Happy Hauntings 6×6 pad and then trimmed out the entire bus, as well as the windows on the bus.  The little zombie doll image, as well as the spider web image from Beware was stamped on some additional paper, trimmed out and then adhered in the open windows.   For my little scene I created “trees” using one of leaves from the Fall Colors set.  I inked up the leaf using grey ink, wiped some of the ink off and then stamped.   The “moon” was created using the “October 31st” image from Beware and stamped in yellow.   The “eeeks” were added by inking up another image from Beware, wiping off the parts that weren’t needed and then stamping.   I added a hazy/foggy look by inking up the cardstock with some Ranger Pumice Stone Distress ink and Memento London Fog ink.   Finished off the card by adhering my spooky bus with foam dimensionals.

Tuesday Ideas: Spook Bus

Hi everyone!  It’s Melissa back with another installment of Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I thought I’d use the School Days set to create a mini Halloween card.  It’s always fun to stick a little note in with Halloween treats and this little 2.5 x 3.5 card will be perfect for that!

I used a black marker to ink all but the ‘School’ sign on the bus.  I wanted to replace the sign with a Halloween themed one!  I grounded the bus & framed the sentiment using the border stamp in the School Days set.  I used the ‘Beware’ sentiment from the Beware stamp set to transition the school bus into a spo0ky bus.  The little spider is from a portion of one of the circle images in the same set.

Have you started on your Halloween cards & gifts yet?  Next week, October arrives and then it won’t be long before little ghosts & goblins are knocking on doors asking for sweet treats!

Until next time, happy stamping!
