Project Thursday ~ Chalkboard CAS Card

Hello everyone… Happy Thursday! Helen is here today with a black and white chalkboard look CAS card showcasing the new Daily Thoughts Stamp Set.


Creating this card is pretty simple 🙂 I used black cardstock for the card base and chalkboard panel.  And I only use one type of ink pad, Moonlight White Brilliance Archival Pigment Ink Pad.

First, on a piece of black cardstock, I stamped the cassette image with Mini MISTI couple of time using Moonlight White Brilliance Archival Pigment Ink Pad. Since it is an archival pigment ink, it is slow drying ink, so I used my craft heater to dry the ink quicker and move to the next step.


I stamped the stars from the Daily Thoughts Stamp Set on the top and bottom corner of the cassette using the same ink pad. And I also stamped the sentiment and little arrows from Love Coupon Stamp Set on the label space of the cassette image. And then I stamped one more sentiment from the Daily Thoughts Stamp Set below the cassette with the same ink.

I dried all the stamped images and sentiments with craft heater. After that, I sponged the same ink on the panel using sponge dauber to give the chalkboard look on it. I started from the edge and worked my way to the middle. I repeated every edge of the panel.

I punch the corners of the panel with WRMK Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper and then added the panel on the card base. The card is done. It is not only clean-and-simple, this card is also thin and mail friendly 🙂

I hope this Project Thursday give you an inspiration to create today! And before you go… check out all the new products at Precious Remembrance Shop!

THANK YOU for stopping by and have a fabulous day.

Create It Wednesday ~ {Oh Christmas}

Today, I’m bringing you a CAS (clean & simple) card using the new {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set. My card is really highlighting the heartwarming sentiment that comes with this stamp set. It has every design element you could possibly love—a heart, an arrow, script/cursive, varying font size, and presence!


I went with traditional holiday colors…and of course, some gold embossing! How to create this look:

  1. Create a window in a piece of red cardstock using a decorative frame. You could use a die or a cutting machine (I used a stock frame already loaded into my Brother Scan-n-Cut).
  2. Stamp and heat emboss the fabulous sentiment in gold embossing powder. Line up your open die cut over the sentiment and pop up with lots of foam adhesive.
  3. Heat emboss the pine boughs in gold embossing powder on green cardstock and fussy cut, leaving enough green to add some color to the card. Arrange and glue in place. Add some sequins for sparkle…the holidays always call for sparkle in my opinion 🙂


Tip: I stink at lining things up perfectly the first time. So when I cut windows for projects like this, I cut it on a much larger sheet of cardstock than I actually need, then line up my window. I mark where I need to trim my cardstock, and presto—a perfectly lined up window!


I hope you give this look a try for your holiday cards. The {Oh Christmas} Stamp Set gives you lots of creative options.

Thanks for stopping by…and go create!

Create It Wednesday ~ {You’re All That!}

Like, whoa! How much inspiration has been packed into the {Totally} Stamp Set new release projects?? Well I certainly couldn’t let this release pass without a little stamp surgery to mix it up and demonstrate how truly versatile the {Totally} stamp set is when crafting!

One of the joys of using clear stamps is that you can cut them apart….don’t have a heart attack on me just yet…because they stick back together (not permanently of course) super easily!

To create this look, mask off half of the brushstroke stamp and use it to create the stem for the flower. Next, only ink the one little image from the border stamp and use it as the leaves on the stem. Repeat the border stamp down the side of the paper to create…well, a border 🙂 Gather up a monochromatic set of inks for the flower and stamp using the star stamps until your heart’s content with the size and shape of your bloom. I also added some yellow and white embossed stars and a white embossed center, with some stickles for the dots. I also used some stickles on portions of the border. I created my sentiment by cutting apart the “that’s all!” to be “all that!” Some splatters and we’re done!

Can you believe every bit of this card was made with stamps from the {Totally} Stamp set??!!

{Crafty Sunday} let’s do plaid

When I think of fall plaid comes to mind.  Flannel shirts, the wool plaid blanket we used to cuddle up by the fireplace with growing up and walking into the Pendleton factory where my grandfather worked at for over thirty years.  This is the time of year to start pulling out those things to keep us comforted and warm during the cool days.  Today I wanted to take it to the paper and create my own version of plaid in colors I love.  Here is the breakdown of  my stamping steps.

Did you know that Precious Remembrance has such an amazing variety of border stamps that you can probably mix and match the stamps each and every day for something completely new?  Now you can experiment with stamps and colors in a whole new way.  Try fall or Halloween colors and just see how so many new color layers come out as you stamp your plaid!

Stamps: Border Tape #1, Coffee Love, Fall Colors, Positive Thoughts, Holiday Wishes.

Thank you for popping by…

You know how much I love my kraft paper for my card base, but today I won’t be using it! Surprise surprise!^_^

This paper is a little bit glossy and has some horizontal patterns on it, as you can see, totally darling. I’m trying to achieve a softer look, just perfect for spring!^_^

Mother’s day is on May 12,2013. Any gift ideas that you can share? How about start it by making some handmade goodies, that would be really special!♥
