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}.

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!!

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!

full-window

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 so special}

It’s time for another Create It Wednesday project, and I’m still showcasing the awesome new release of the the {Totally} stamp set. This set really let’s you get bold and graphic!

 Totally special

I began by stamping the border stamp repeatedly in 3 rows (always think odd numbers in design) using Versamark ink on black cardstock. Heat setting brightly colored embossing powders to the stamped borders really created a pop on this card! I embossed my sentiment on vellum, pairing the {Totally} stamp set with “you’re so special” from the {Blossom} stamp set. A few sequins and a notebook paper edge punch and this became a graphic CAS design with a rainbow of colors 🙂

I’m “totally” loving this stamp set; it plays so well with the other stamps from Precious Remembrance Shop and other stamps sets you have in your stash! Swing by and check out the shop here. I hope you have a super special day 🙂

{Inspire Me Friday} You Can Totally Do It Yourself

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my first project post for the newly released “Totally” stamp set.  I do hope you enjoyed the cards shared by the Design Team on the release day last week (and Lisa’s fun card on Monday).

There are so many possibilities with this set…and not just for card-making.  This set would be great for Project Life journaling cards, scrapbook layouts, artists trading cards, mixed media projects, and so much more!

I decided to try my hand at a different type of card, definitely outside of my comfort zone but in the end I had a BLAST making it!

7-15-16 PRS Totally Project #1

I started out by die cutting a white panel with a stitched rectangle die.  Next, I inked the graphic stripes with two inks (Hero Arts “Butter Bar” and “Orange Soda”) and repeatedly stamped them to cover the entire panel.  Using black dye ink, I stamped the sentiment by mixing two stamp sets – Totally and DIY.  I distressed the edge of the panel with Antique Linen distress ink, mounted the panel on black card stock, then onto a yellow card base.  For the final touches, I added a watercolored flower from the Blossom set and three black pearls.

715-16 PRS Totally Project Card #1 2

So, what do you think?  I hope I have inspired you to try something new…you can totally do it!  😉

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happiness & Coffee Lover’s Bloghop!

Hi stampers!:) Have you heard the news? Coffee Lovers is back for a summer bloghop! Woohoo!:) And guess what? We are one of the sponsors! Hooray!:)

All the lovely details can be found over  here. I hope you’ll join us and have fun!:)

Welcome to Precious Remembrance Shop if you’re new here. I hope you’ll find tons of project inspiration, we have more project ideas coming using our stamp sets!:) Stay tune!

Now onto my project for today! You know it!:) It’s all about coffee!:) I did some masking here to make the coffee cups overlap. Do you guys like how it looks? I really enjoyed this!:)

Another thing is that if you have the Coffee Love stamp set, you’ll see that there’s a striped border stamp included, there’s so many ways to use it, and here I used it to decorate my cups!:)

Since I’ve been doing some shading here and there, it’s best to work on a watercolor paper as a card base, this will help you blend the markers / ink well.:) I used quite a lot of stamps that I’m hoping will give this card great texture! And really love the end result.:)

Here are the lists of stamps that I used:

Coffee Love Stamp Set : Coffee Cup , Striped Border, Enjoy sentiment

DIY Stamp Set: Arrow Border , Splatters

Border Tape #1 Stamp Set : Polka Dots Border ( Found @ top right & lower left corner)

Fall Colors Stamp Set : Grid Background

Blossom Stamp Set : Don’t Forget  – Take a break , & Happiness Sentiments

I also added some patterned papers and buttons with twine to dress up the coffee cups! Cute!!!:) Makes me happy! A touch of white polka dots using a white gel pen for the background, it adds a soft texture and it looks magical like a starry night!:)

I hope you enjoyed today’s project, and got inspired!:)

Your comments makes me happy. Thank you so much for stoppin’ by!

Design It Monday ~ {Touches of the Past}

Hello! I hope you’ve been enjoying our projects featuring the latest new stamp releases. I’m here today to share another combining the new with touches of the past. The past being a couple of our previously released sets.One of my favorite color combinations is aqua, red and kraft. On this card I chose to let the red take center stage with this fabulous sentiment from the new This Moment Stamp Set. I just love the paintbrush look of this image! After stamping the sentiment onto a die cut cream panel, I added the wispy feathers from the DIY stamp set. I stamped three consecutive times without re-inking.

Next came the large grunge circles from the New Day stamp set. I inked it up, stamped off once on scrap paper, then stamped it onto my panel. To bring a bit of my kraft card base to the focal panel of my card, I inked up the trio of splatters from the DIY stamp set. The finishing touch was the addition of my favorite aqua rhinestones. I felt the card needed something else bright to marry with the bright red sentiment.

And there you have it, one of our new sets with touches of past sets! Thanks so much for visiting with us today.

DIY: Decorative Tags!

Hi stampers! Look at these tags that I made.:) Fun! 

Ok, so I made a lot of tags and tabs from my stash, using my dies and cricut. I use tags a lot for my scrapbooking and project life albums. And these will definitely go on my future pages.

But really, tags are such a fun accent in any projects. You can never go wrong with these cuties!:)

For my sentiments and background, I used the Oh So Fun and New Day stamp sets.

If you watched my haul videos in our youtube channel, you know I recently got the tiny attacher. Oh my! LOVE it! Love the tiny staple.

Washi tapes and Enamel Dots added some fun layers for these tags too!:)

And finally, I got my ribbons out again and use them here instead of twine.  I forgot how much I love my ribbons and I’m so happy to see them on my projects again.:)

Thanks for stoppin’ by and happy weekend!
