{Inspire Me Friday} 18th Birthday Card

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday!  I’m here with my last project for the new release “Date” stamp set and I hope you like it!

I stepped away from my planner this time around and made a birthday card for my son’s 18th birthday.  (How can my baby be turning 18?)  I combined several PRS stamp sets for his card, trying to keep it simple and masculine yet still festive and fun.

I die cut white card stock into a notebook page, then started combining stamps.  Several stamps from the “Positive Thoughts” set started it off, with sentiments from the “School Days” set added next.  I added my son’s age using the numbers in the “Date” set and highlighted his age using a arrow from the retired “Mom & Dad” set.

I popped up the white panel using foam tape onto a navy blue card base, then added the bow and mini clothespin for added interest.  I hope he likes it!

I also hope you have enjoyed all of the projects using the “Date” stamp set shared by our Design Team and Guest Designers over the past few weeks.  If you haven’t purchased yours already, go grab it at the PRS Shop!

Create It Wednesday ~ Desktop Calendar

I’m wrapping up my Create It Wednesday posts using the new {Date Stamp Set} with some mixed media crafty goodness! I wanted to create a desktop monthly calendar for my craft room using this awesome newly released set. Here’s the finished product.
Mixed media postcard full2

I started by using some spray inks…lots of spray ink lol…and a mix of several graphic stamps from other PRS sets {Happy Art and Positive Thoughts}. I stamped them in archival ink and colored them in with some heavy body acrylic paint in similar colors.

(Yes, I did have an art oopsie and had to recreate the background…more time to play right??) Next I marked the calendar grid on some acetate and stamped the days and dates with StazOn ink (made to use on non-porous materials). To mute the background, so the numbers would pop out, I cut a piece of vellum and ran it through my sticker machine and adhered it to the card. I repeated the sticker making with the acetate calendar I made…you don’t even see the adhesive!

I adhered a strip of plain white cardstock behind the days of the week then stuck it all on the “vellumed” background. I added a flag with the month and year and mounted my finished calendar with some removable adhesive to a media board for sturdiness.

I can’t wait to make one for every month of the year!! I hope you’ll give this a try. Thanks of joining me while I shared some ideas for using the new PRS {Date Stamp Set}.

Design It Monday!

Hi there! Lisa here today with my final Design It Monday post featuring the Date Stamp Set. With the first day of spring right around the corner, I thought a light and airy card was in order!

17 0310 002 copy

I had a scrap of water colored paper left over from another project. It was the perfect size for this die cut butterfly. I added the month of April to it’s wing using Versa Mark ink, then heat embossed it with fine detail gold embossing powder.

My white card base was stamped repeatedly with flowers from the Blossom Stamp Set. This provided me the light and airy background I was looking for! The year was stamped and heat embossed next. My butterfly was added with foam tape to lift it from the flowers just a bit. A sprinkling of heart confetti sends a little love to the recipient.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Saturday Creations ~ {Wooden Gift Tag}

Hello Again and welcome back to another Saturday Creations!  Today I collaged a wooden tag with many layers to use on a birthday gift.

Here it is:

000_4873The tag is made of wood so it is a sturdy background.  I collaged paint, gesso, book paper and washi tape on the background.  The green is paint I smeared on with my finger and the black dots are actually part of a napkin!  The black around the edges is distress crayon.

I stamped the blossom from the PR Blossom Stamp set with black archival ink, clear heat embossed it,  and water colored the blossom.  It’s popped up and adds a lot of dimension to the tag.  Then I stamped the date from the PR Date Stamp Set and clear embossed it as well.  A little dyed seam binding ribbon, some lace at the bottom, and there you have it!  Secret – I loved this tag so much that I put MY birthday on it and it will be a gift to me!  LOL!

TIP:  Use water color paper because it is sturdy and can handle a lot of water and color and holds up well hanging off the side of the tag.

I hope this inspires you to purchase this new PR Date Stamp Set and create FAB projects of your own!

Project Life by: Erica Thompson!

Hey PRS fans! Erica back with you today for another Guest Designer post! I am so excited to share my project with you and share how I used the stamp! I have recently started doing project life to document our daily life and this stamp is perfect! I wanted to do something a little different with one of the stamps to share with you all another fun way to use these stamps! I decided to create a cutfile for the month of March using the March stamp that comes in the Date Stamp Set! It really is very simple and can be done with just about any stamp!

I started by stamping the image out on a piece of white 4×6 cardstock in a nice black ink! Versafine is my favorite! I then took a photo of the image and uploaded it to my computer as a JPEG file. Next I opened up my silhouette studio and then opened up my JPEG file of the stamped image! All there is to do now is trace the image, move the JPEG image over and delete it and what is left is your cut file! You can now adjust the size of the image and send to your silhouette to cut! Super simple and quick and another way to get the most our of your stamps!
Here is a look at the image turned into a cutfile! I used the cutfile for my March title page and I love how it turned out! I also cut out some of the days of the week that I will use later in my album! I used my March Clique Kit that you can find HERE and it makes it easy to create journal cards that all go together! In my last guest designer post that you can find HERE I shared how I made my own journal cards for my December Daily album and I decided to do some of that technique for these pages!

I just love how the March looks stamped over and over again on a white piece of cardstock! I just added a heart from the embellishment pack that came in my kit and I have a cute 3×4 journal card!

I used the grid stamp and stamped it out on one of the pattern papers in the kit and also stamped out the Month Date Year inside the grid. I trimmed it down with my scissors and only used the Month box on one of my cards. I will save the Date and Year for another card in my album. Here is a look at my final two pages. I love how they came out and how much use I am getting out of this stamp set! You can pick it up HERE in the Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop! While you are there in the shop be sure to check out the other fabulous stamps and products in the shop!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I would love for you to check out my blog for my projects later this month using the stamp set and don’t forget to also follow the Precious Remembrance Stamp blog! Have a wonderful and creative day!

DIY Notebook by Stephanie Muzzulin!

Hi It’s Stephanie here with you today sharing a fun and quick project with you today.
Besides making my cards I LOVE to make notebooks!!!
This is such a great way to use up that scrapbooking paper that I have been hoarding all these years LOL I know I am not alone in this problem!!
I bought this punch for plans to add pages to my planner but it is so much fun making my own notebooks with it.  If you do not have a punch like this a regular three ring binder punch would work just as well and you can use binder rings to put it all together.
For the cover of my book I wanted to add a fun little saying/quote this is going to be a notebook for my daughter so I thought this sentiment from the DIY Stamp Set was perfect!!! After that I just laminated the front and back covers to make it a little more durable and than I just started punching the pages and using the rings from Me and My Big Ideas to put the pages together and than you are done!! So simple and these make such great gifts as well!!
For the inside of the notebook I just added some fun paper, diecuts and you can personalize it even more by adding some stamped images from the Date Stamp set!!!
 
Thanks for letting me share my little project with you!!

{Inspire Me Friday} Daily Goodness

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my next installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring the new “Date” stamp set!  Are you enjoying all of the wonderful inspiration by our Design Team and awesome Guest Designers this month?  I hope so!

For my project this time around, I decided to make a quick and easy one-layer card and I paired up several PRS stamp sets.  I couldn’t help but think that the days of the week in the “Date” stamp set would go perfectly with the sentiment from the “New Day” set.  Of course, the pretty flowers from the “Blossom” set” go well with any stamps!

3-3-17 PRS Date Stamp Project 3 IMG_3255

The fun dots and brushstroke are also from the “New Day” set, stamped in Scattered Straw distress ink.  The days of the week were stamped in a Soft Granite ink so that the main sentiment in black ink would really stand out.  The flowers were watercolored using distress inks for a soft look.

For a final touch I added three sequins and ran my blue ink pad along the edges of the card to frame it.

Design It Monday ~ Simple Shamrocks!

Good day friends! I’m back with another installment of Design It Monday. Today I’m sharing some simple shamrocks with you on a St. Patrick’s Day card.

thumbnail_17 0226 003 copy

I’ve used the little heart from the Coffee Love Stamp Set to create my shamrocks. I stamped the heart three times then fussy cut them. There are several sets in the PRS shop with heart images. Imagine the variety of shamrocks you could make!

17 0226 002 copy

The month, day and date from the Date Stamp Set were stamped repeatedly on white cardstock then die cut. The small jar from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set was stamped onto white cardstock and vellum then fussy cut. I added some of my shamrocks “inside” the jar then layered the vellum panel on top of them. Some gold twine and sprinkling of metallic gold sequins added just the right amount of sparkle to the green and white color combo.

Saturday Creations ~ {Precious Remembrance Date Stamp Dinner Invitation}

Today I am sharing an invitation I made for a dinner party that has already happened!  As soon as I received this FABULOUS PR Date Stamp Set, I HAD to use it!  I couldn’t wait for the product release!  Let me tell you, my friends thought the invitations were so CUTE!  I hope you do, too!

000_4878I stamped the date block in black and the details in Aqua for a contrasting color that would match the background paper.  The random stripes were made using a line stamp from the Precious Remembrance Stamp Set Coffee Love.  I’m also really happy the sentiment “save the date” is in this set because it opens up all kinds of possibilities to use this Date Stamp Set!

Here’s a close up of the silverware I stenciled with graphite paste.  It’s really coarse and textural and makes a cool dinner invitation:

000_4879This Date Stamp Set is a MUST HAVE!

I hope you like my creation!
