Let’s Talk About Happy Things Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning. Nicole here with a layout I created using the Coffee Love Stamp Set. I decided to do something different… I bought this little album months ago. It’s been sitting in my craft bin. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to scrap in this size. It took me 25 minutes to create this tiny page. LOL…But I like it. ūüôā

I messed up the first time I stamped the “just a little” onto the journaling card. I wasn’t sure how I was going to still be able to use the card, but then I decided to stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock and then cut the sentiment out and cover up the mistake. It worked, but it’s not perfect.¬† I really like the sentiments in this stamp set. As you can see, I used quite a few on this spread.

The Let’s talk about happy things stamp is perfect for this spread because that is exactly what these kiddos do when they are together… they like to talk a lot and play together.

Here’s a video of how this layout came together…mistakes and all. ūüôā

Thanks so much for visiting today!

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.

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.

preciouse-remembrance-Dec27-helengullett

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 РNocturne Ink Pad on a white cardstock and then I fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on the cup with VersaFine Clair РGlamorous 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 РGlamorous, 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:

And here’s one last card from me using Coffee Love and Everyday stamp sets.

PRS DT Final card

The little hearts were white embossed on the travel cup which I stamped in Versafine Clair Onyx ink and fussy cut.  I used gray and red Zig watercolor pens for some ombre coloring.  The sentiment was stamped on a light gray panel splattered with red.   I mounted the cup with foam tape and stamped the little lines on the card front before adding the panel.  Fun to use white sequins for steam.  Wishing everyone a peaceful, crafty 2019.

Tuesday Ideas {you inspire me}

Hello! It’s Kelly here today sharing a vibrant card that uses the¬†Coffee Love¬†stamp set and the¬†Positive Thoughts¬†stamp set.¬† I haven’t used the main images from the “Coffee Love” set yet, so I thought it would be fun to use it today! My cute sister gave me a gorgeous pad of pattern paper that I thought would work well for today’s design.

To begin my design, I got to work heat embossing the cup image using gold embossing powder. I find that it is very easy to do fussy cutting when you do heat embossing because the raised image gives you a nice guide, rather than just flat ink stamping. I guess I like it because it is a little more forgiving¬† as well! {And it looks great, too!}¬† I embossed it a second time onto the black pattern paper and fussy cut the lid and then center portion. I wanted to have two coordinating patterns for this cute cup! I also heat embossed the word “enjoy” onto the coffee cozy.

It is important to use the right scale of pattern depending on the size of your image and I thought these two patterns worked nicely. I brought in a third, larger print to use as part of the background for today’s design. I ran it through my paper crimper to give it that “coffee cozy” vibe. It also provides great texture and dimension. I thought that the cup looked perfect nestled in between the floral print. I also used two of the additional images from the “Coffee Love” set above and below the corrugated floral piece.

I stamped the circle images from the “Positive Thoughts” stamp set because they added extra detail, but also because it reminds me of the ring that a cup would leave behind. I also stamped the “You inspire me” sentiment in black along the bottom of the card base. I am finding that I need more and more of these cards to send to all of the amazing people in my life that encourage me to be a better person! I hope you enjoyed today’s card.

Project Thursday ~ Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards

Hello everyone one… Helen is here. It’s Project Thursday time… And today’s project is a set of mixed media Artis Trading Cards that I created using stamp set, bits and pieces, paper snippets, buttons, and VersaFine Clair Ink Pads from Precious Remembrance Shop.

PreciousRemembrance-ArtistTradingCards-HelenGullett

On these artist trading cards, I used the Little Thing Stamp Set and the Coffee Love Stamp Set.

I stamped the triangles from the Little Things Stamp Set on tissue paper using VersaFine Clair Nocturne (Black) Ink Pad. This is a pigment ink, so it will take time to dry. I set it aside to dry while I was working on the cards.

PreciousRemembrance-ATC04c-HelenGullett

I used watercolor paper 140 lbs for the artist trading cards. To create the background, I use the ink smooshing technique with VersaFine Clair ink pads and Staz-On All-Purpose Stamp Cleaner Spray. Since these ink pads are oil-based inks, water won’t work with them. But the stamp cleaner works like magic!

PreciousRemembrance-ATC04-HelenGullett

The Ink Pads I used on these card backgrounds are:

First, I dab a little bit of the ink on a craft mat, then I spray it with the Staz-On All-Purpose Stamp Cleaner Spray. I smooshed the watercolor paper in the ink. I did one color a the time and then dried them with craft heater tool.

I added thin layer of my homemade texture paste using palette knife on each card. This way give some texture on them and muted the colors a little bit.

After the texture paste dried, I added the pieces of stamped tissue papers on them using gel medium.

Once these cards dried, I added each of them on purple cardstock mat, green cardstock mat, and orange cardstock mat. After that I hand-stitched couple of the edges with white embroidery thread. And I added them again the last 3.5″ x 2.5″ card mats with strong adhesive glue. Lots of layers… I know!!!

Next step, I stamped the cup from Coffee Love Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair РParadise, VersaFine Clair РGreen Oasis, and VersaFine Clair РSummertime. I fussy each of the cup with micro-tip scissors.

PreciousRemembrance-ATC01-HelenGullett

On this first artist trading card, I added the blue cup. I added the XOXO word from Bits & Pieces : Love Coupon. I secured it on the cup with mini stapler. I added the cup on the card with strong adhesive glue. I added the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set that I stamped using VersaFine Clair РNocturne (black) on a white cardstock, trimmed it into paper strip, and doodled the framed around it with Faber-Castel PITT Artist Pen. I embellished this card with some of the Sweet Lavender Buttons.

PreciousRemembrance-ATC02-HelenGullett

On the second and third artist trading cards, I did the same steps that I used to create the first card above.

I also used one of the sentiments from Little Things Stamp Set that I stamped using VersaFine Clair РNocturne (black) and one of the card from the Paper Snippets : TODAY. I embellished it with some of the Baby Blue Buttons.

PreciousRemembrance-ATC03-HelenGullett

And on this third artist trading card, I used one of the cute little cassettes from Bits & Pieces : Daily Thoughts to embellish the cup and the sentiment is from Little Things Stamp Set that I stamped using VersaFine Clair РNocturne (black). I trimmed the sentiment paper and added on the cassette with adhesive glue. I embellished it with some of the Light Mint Buttons.

For finishing touch, I added some of white gesso on the edges of all the artist trading cards with my finger for extra distress look on them.

Thank you so much for stopping by today… Have a wonderful day!

Create it Wednesday~A Little Something

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my project using PRS Little Things and Coffee Love stamp sets.  I began by stamping the fun circles from Little Things multiple times using VersaMagic Persimmon and Pink Grapefruit.  Glad I still have all my punches as it was a quick way to cut them all out.  I folded the top of the Plain White Flat Paper Bag and attached the circles across the bottom.

PRS DT July Pkg

Next I made a matching tag big enough to decorate the rest of the bag.  The smaller tag was dry embossed with a polka dot folder and I swiped the edges of the larger one with the Persimmon ink pad.  Then I attached the tags together and added the circles across the bottom.

PRS DT July Pkg close up

The sentiment from Coffee Love¬†was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate on a white scrap.¬† I used a piece of Washi as a mask so I could add the Pink Grapefruit ink to the top and bottom edges before adding it to the tag with foam tape.¬† Finished off with a white grosgrain bow and now my summery gift bag is¬†ready to give a friend.¬† Hope I’ve inspired you to check out all the great products in the PRS shop.¬† See you next time.
