Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! It’s Kim here to share with you a Tuesday Ideas creation. And today’s project is all about layers.
I just love adding layers to my cards. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult for me to stop adding layers. Although I understand that this style can be intimidating to some, I will share with you my method for piling on the layers without going overboard.
With spring in the air, our family has started going on bike rides again. It feels so good to be outside when the weather has started to warm up. With that idea in mind, I found inspiration for my card today.
I started with a three-part color theme in blue, red, and yellow. For me, choosing my color theme first helps me to stay focused when gathering coordinating ribbons, trims, and buttons. With color in mind, I can quickly scan my craft room for matching embellishments and avoid any supplies that are not in my color theme.
After putting all my layers together, I completed my card by adding the “enjoy” sentiment from the Calendar Stamp set, “fun times” from the Friend Stamp set, and the yellow polka-dot heart from the Love Stamp set. Each perfect for a spring time card!
So…even though there are many layers on my card, it all came together rather quickly because I had a color theme in mind. I hope you’ll try this method out next time you’re feeling a bit crafty.
Thanks for joining me today!

Celebrating the sentiment today. Whether you add it to your project as a border or create the perfect sentiment, they definitely make a statement. In today’s card and box set, mixing and matching sentiments is a favorite with Precious Remembrance stamp sets.
Used several sets including Friends, Birthday, Thanks and Love stamps to create something special.
The box is bordered using the “thank you” border stamp from the Thanks set. A label created from stamping cardstock , cutting out the label, distressing the edges with ink and scoring along the middle to create the fold. Marked the “x” using the number one from the Calendar set as well.
How will you use your sentiments today? Thank you for stopping by for Create It Wednesday and hope you enjoy your day!
Hello, and welcome back, friends! Geri here, with my final Friday inspiration using the ‘Thanks‘ set. I used the image of the ‘thank you for’ list on this card, and used a little gold star to mark what I was thankful for…
…everything, of course! I pulled out some older papers I had stashed away, and a set of pockets I got awhile back for almost nothin‘ on clearance. Used the pocket to tuck my little ‘thank you’ note into…
…and used some other embellishments to pretty it all up. (I included a sentiment from the ‘Calendar‘ set on the pocket.)
I sure have enjoyed creating with this set, and appreciate you joining me each Friday! I’m sure Elena will have something sweet for you tomorrow to wrap up her inspiration, too…don’t miss it! Then I hope you’ll join us for inspiration using a great new set…coming soon!!!
What is the one thing you may see most tomorrow? Hearts…and lots of them. It is all about the love of hearts today, and Precious Remembrance has so many adorable ones to choose from. Today I am sharing a card using a few of these heart stamps to create a little something for spring.
Bring together your ink, cardstock and stamps (used Thanks, Positive Thoughts, Love sets) and create. Added texture to each heart petal by brushing a craft knife along the cut edges of the stamped edges. Folded each in half and used a combination of foam adhesive with craft glue to create the flowers.
Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and maybe find a new way to use your heart stamps this week!
Hello stampers! I am currently enjoying working on some projects using the previous releases. So if you’re like me, bring out your older stamps and give it some inking love! And oh! Don’t forget to grab your old paper collections too! But before I go on my project, let me share the following…
Do you guys remember the Love Stamp Set? That’s one of the first stamp set that we released in the shop. So if you’re new to the blog and haven’t seen that much of it, check this out~!
How cute are those?^_^
Now let’s talk about versatility. One of the most popular stamp set that we have is the Calendar Stamp Set. Not only it’s great whole year round, but you can make anything under the sun with this stamp set. Mix and match it with any stamps that you already own. Just perfect for any occasion.
And so I created not only 1 project for you guys, but I have 3 sweet projects for you to enjoy using both stamp sets!^_^
Check out this first one, you’re probably wondering… what else can I do with the sentiment stamps? Well, aside from using it by itself, try mixing it up with a sentiment die cut, I’m sure you have something in your stash that’s just waiting for you to get notice!^_^ Just like this one…. I have this die cut for years, and look how perfect it is. I stamped the word “Memories and Heart” from the Love stamp set. Those 3 hearts at the bottom is from the Calendar Stamp Set. Gotta love hearts!^_^
On to my next project! Looovvveee this card!^_^ I did the same technique on mixing it up with a sentiment die cut. Behind the die cut, I stamped all of the elements using the Calendar Stamp Set. And I just used a colored gel pen to fill in the hearts. And added some fun embellishments!
Here’s my last project for today, a kraft treat bag. Stamped using the Love stamp set, and the solid heart is from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.
I hope these projects gave you some inspiration on how you can play with our stamps. Now start creating and grab those supplies that you haven’t seen for awhile.^_^

I hope all of you are having a fun day so far and keep on smiling!^_^
You know, when I first started crafting, I’ll admit I thought the whole ‘dressing up present/packaging’ thing was a little dumb. I mean, why waste your time dressing up a package that the recipient is just going to rip through?
Since then, I’ve changed my mind. For one reason, I like to dress up things – it’s just so darn fun! Secondly, the recipients usually save the packaging and really treasure it!
So here’s a present for my sister (who’s birthday is coming up soon), all dolled and prettied up using the Calender stamp set.
Her birth date…
I went with a lot of pink because it’s her favorite color, even though I know the style of the packaging (shabby) isn’t her favorite. Hey, I did say one reason I dress packaging up now I because I like it.
Open the package up and you get a cute little owl whose wings spread open to reveal a little clock on his tummy!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping in!
Happy Friday, everyone! A friend of my family is getting married tomorrow and I thought the Calendar Stamp Set would be the perfect tool to personalize a wedding card. I started off with a dark blue card base and stamped a panel of cream colored cardstock with flowers from the Papertrey Ink (PTI) Pretty Peonies stamp set.
I then stamped and embossed a small die-cut panel with the “new couple” sentiment, which is from the PTI Beautiful Butterflies stamp set. Underneath this sentiment, I stamped the couple’s wedding date. Blue ribbon and a couple of buttons pull this card together!
I also decorated the inside of card with a few flowers and the date stamp again. I hope I’ve inspired you to look for ways to add personalization to your projects by means of adding a date. The Calendar Stamp Set is perfect for this and I’m so glad I have it to use for future weddings, birthdays and graduations!
Any day is a great day to say “I love you.”
Don’t you think?
I tend to make a lot of these lovey-dovey cards, because I want the people I love to know that I love them… You know, in case I do things to make them doubt it during the day… hee.
For this card, I stamped a very subtle watermark border down the left of the card: the journaling lines first, and then the months of the year (from the Calendar set.) Next, I printed the sentiment via the computer, and stamped the calendar month image over-top. I added the white splotches, heart image, and stitching lines (on the strip of patterned paper) from my favorite Precious Remembrance set: positive thoughts.
I hope you like it! Hope you take some time to create a little love note for someone special this weekend!
Happy Friday, everyone! Since autumn is quickly approaching, I decided to make a Halloween-themed card and put my beloved Calendar Stamp Set to use! I started off by adhering panels of polka-dotted scrap booking paper to my card base and covering the seams with orange rikrak.
I used a Spellbinders Labels 8 die to die cut the kraft panel and used the die from the Papertrey Ink Little Princess set to die-cut the “haunted” castle. I used the PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set to stamp to stamp the bat wings, which are actually mistletoe leaves! I added a pair of hole-punch eyes and my bat was complete!
I stamped a mini tag with the October 31st date and strung it with some twine and a button as a finishing touch. I hope I’ve inspired you to embrace our upcoming autumn by creating some seasonal craft projects of your own!
