Design It Monday ~ {Thanks}

Hi friends! Lisa back today with another installment of Design It Monday. I have a bright and happy thank you card. Check it out…

Project_20190825_0003 copy

I started with a scrap of white card stock and the thanks image from the School Days stamp set.  After stamping the image in a bright and happy green, I trimmed it down and die cut one edge. I added this to my card base stamped with an image from the previously released Blossom stamp set. I stamped the blooms with Versa Mark ink then clear embossed them. Layered die cut hearts and sweet wooden apple buttons I bought on Etsy finish things off.

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!

Project Thursday ~ A Coffee Card and A Year In Review

Hello everyone, I hope you all have a fabulous holidays week! Can you believe that a year almost gone by? New year is coming in 4 more days! And it also means that is the end of my term with Precious Remembrance Shop. It has been an amazing year and for sure I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this amazing team, for Dyane, and for her generosity through out the year.

I have one more card to share with you all today. I created this card with the new Everyday Stamp Set and Coffee Love Stamp Set.

I stamped one of the artsy image from the Everyday Stamp Set with Versamark Ink Pad and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then, I added some red paint using Sakura Koi Water Colors on the background. The heat embossed image resist the watercolor paint.

I used smooshing technique and splatter technique to add more texture with the watercolor paint. I dried it, distress the edge of the paper, and added it on a white card with permanent adhesive.

preciouse-remembrance-Dec27-helengullett-02

I stamped the cup from the Coffee Love Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne Ink Pad on a white cardstock and then I fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on the cup with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and I added the cup on the card with 3D foam tape.

For the other sentiments, they are from Everyday Stamp Set that I stamped with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous, trimmed it into sentiment stripes, and then I added them on the cup with 3D foam tape.

And… before you all go… Here are my Top 5 favorite cards that I created with Precious Remembrance Shop in this year of 2018:

Design It Monday ~ {Create Art}

Hi there, Lisa here today. Our fearless leader Dyane challenged us to use some of the artsy images from various stamp sets to have some inky fun! This card is a bit different from my usual style. But then again, the layers, colors and embellishments are my style, so maybe I didn’t stray too far after all! I’ll let you decide.

18 1215 003 copy

Layer number one is a vintage cream card base stamped with the string and splatter images from the Happy Art stamp set. The next layer holds images from the DIY stamp set. It was added to the base with fun foam. I used the same teal/green ink on this layer but stamped it off once for a lighter shade. My third layer comes in the form of a ribbon tab. It’s a simple embellishment that adds so much interest. Layer number four holds the paint swipes image from the Everyday stamp set and a sentiment from the Blossom stamp set. The fifth layer is a simple trio of sequins.

I had so much fun creating this little piece of art. It’s nice to step out of that comfort zone from time to time!

Stay tuned, there are more artsy creations coming from the team!

Design It Monday ~ {Miss You}

Hi friends! I’m fast forwarding through Christmas this week to bring you a love themed card. Check it out…

18 1128 007 copy

Ticket stubs, a scalloped note and blossoms fill a pretty little polka dot envelope. The envelope and pink note enclosure are from Martha Stewart. I stamped the dashed frame from the Love Coupon stamp set onto the note. Next I masked it off then added a flower from the Blossom stamp set.

This ticket stub from the Love Coupon set was stamped with kraft ink then masked off to add the hearts (Everyday stamp set) and the sentiment (Love Coupon).

18 1128 009 copy

This one was masked off to add the paint swipe background and a repetitive sentiment from the Everyday stamp set.

Once all of the goodies were glued into the envelope I added it to a polka dot embossed panel that was adorned with portions of a paper doily. And finally everything was adhered to a red card base. I think this design would work well for not only Valentine’s Day, but an anniversary, birthday, Mother’s Day or even an I miss you card! How about you?

Design It Monday ~ (Thinking of You!}

Hello friends! Lisa here today with a couple of bright and happy cards to share. I like to keep a few cards on hand with what I call a generic sentiment. A card to lift a friend’s spirits, a last minute birthday card or just to let someone know they’ve been on my mind. That last thought is just the case with my first card, Thinking of You.

Project_20180806_0003 copy

This one started with a white panel and the star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. I used several colors of bright cheerful inks turning the stamp in different directions to achieve my overall pattern. Next came a die cut window to create the shaker element. Before putting the shaker together, I stamped the sentiment (Daily Thoughts Stamp Set). The shaker is filled with buttons, confetti and sequins.

Not wanting that little die cut square to go to waste, I created a second card.

Project_20180806_0004 copy

Once again I started with a white panel and the same die cut opening. This time I filled the opening with the leftover stamped square that included a sentiment from the Blossom Stamp Set. I chose the card base color from the inlaid piece to continue the bright happy look.

A fun pair of cards to have in my stash, don’tcha think!

Design It Monday ~ {Border Possibilities!}

Hidyho PRS friends! I have two cards to share with you today featuring the Little Things stamp set. What started out as one project blossomed into a bonus card!

Project_20180607_0002 copy

I had a thought just as I was going to bed one night that I wanted to make a flower using the polka dot border from the Little Things set. I stamped the border several times then die cut about a dozen circles in two different sizes from the long strips. I glued the smaller of the circles to the back of a large button.

*A tip here is to cut the bottom, or white half of the circle, into a V so you can conceal it behind the button.*

My plan was to then add the larger circles as a second layer to the bloom, but I didn’t like the way this looked. Instead, I adhered a die cut vellum flower. I popped this onto a cute patterned paper frame with a snippet of a Mini Yellow Doily from the shop. I added a sentiment banner to the top of the card along with a few punched butterflies.

Not wanting those larger circles to go to waste, I created a scalloped border with them!

Project_20180607_0004 copy

I’ve used the same paper and doily here but created a more modern looking card. One of the flowers from the Blossom stamp set helped to ground my design. A few speckles from the Fall Colors set were added for good measure.

Never underestimate the possibilities of your stamps. One pretty little polka dot border provided me with two cards. Now who’s mailbox should these be delivered to?

Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett

Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp Set, Oh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_01

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_02

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_03

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Helen Gullett
