I used the Fall Colors stamp set (one of my absolute favorites!) to create today’s card. All three leaf images were inked up and randomly stamped onto and ivory panel. I embossed some of the little splatters with Versa Mark ink and gold embossing powder. After die cutting the panel, it was added to a dry embossed card base.¬† The sentiment was also gold embossed then framed with the cute sketchy rectangle from the set.

See what I mean? Isn’t this a beautiful stamp set!

I would like to wish all of you from the US a Happy Thanksgiving!
To all of our other friends, I wish you happiness!

GATHER Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone. I’m sharing another fall layout I created using Precious Remembrance Shop’s Fall Colors Stamp Set. I used pretty papers from Pink Paislee and die cuts from Vicki Boutin’s newest collection. The die cuts are beautiful. I received some from Scrapbooking & Card’s Today’s stampler and I think I need to check out the actual collection. ūüôā

I stamped the leaf patterned on kraft paper using brown/pink ink then colored them in using markers. Aren’t they pretty?!

 

I added a few tags at the top to add a few more layers.

 

I stamped the “hi there! and autumn” sentiment onto the labels. Oh and I almost forgot about the “thankful for you…” sentiment below the photo. This stamp set is perfect for fall! And they are available in the shop! Click here.

 

A few close-ups of the embellishments. I went a little crazy with the layout. I tend to add stuff until I am pleased with the layout. ūüôā

 

 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Fall Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Friday! I love Fall and I can’t wait to take some pictures of the leaves changing in my neighborhood. I decided to pull an old photo of Edward out to scrapbook. He was two years old. We went to the park this day and had a great time together…exploring and playing.

I used the Fall Colors Stamp Set along with a variety of inks and paint to create the leaves pattern in the background.

A lot of thought went into this piece. Lots of stickers and embellishments carefully placed to frame the adorable picture.

Design It Monday ~ {Thank You So Much}

Hi PRS friends, Lisa here today with a trio of thank you tags. As another school year comes to a close there are always people to thank. Teachers, bus driver’s and crossing guards just to name a few. These cute little tags would be perfect to add to a small token of your appreciation. Take a look.

Project_20190519_0001 copy

I started by stamping the thank you sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set onto rustic cream cardstock. Next the tag was die cut followed by stamping the second portion of my sentiment (School Days). I added the yellow hearts (Everyday) letting them flow off of the tag’s edge. Opposing leaves in soft aqua (Falls Colors) add just the right amount of interest without being in you face!

Coordinating ribbon and twine provided just the right finishing touch. I hope you like them and that I’ve inspired you to create some thank you projects with your PRS stamps!

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.

3 leaves

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.

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:

Create It Wednesday~Artsy & Fun Birthday Card

Hope you’re enjoying our artsy celebration week on the blog.¬† I decided to make a funky birthday card using these three PRS Stamp Sets:¬† Everyday,¬†Oh So Fun and Fall Colors.¬† You may not see a flower image in these sets, but that didn’t stop me from making one for my card!¬†¬†PRS DT 3 sets for flower

I began with the Everyday stamp set where I saw the circle as a bloom, one of the lines as a stem and the triangle as leaves.  The bloom was a little too small, so I used one of the solid triangles in the Oh So Fun set to give it more substance.  Must admit, it was fun to step outside my comfort zone to be a little artsy!  I used Distress Oxides abandoned coral, cracked pistachio and wilted violet along with a white pen for dots in the flower center.

PRS Flower Third Try Brighter Only

I layered 6 scalloped frame die cuts¬†using gray cardstock for the top layer.¬† The sentiment from Oh So Fun was stamped in a dark gray ink.¬† I love the splatter¬†images in the Fall Colors Stamp Set and used one for my card.¬† So glad you stopped by and¬†hope you’ll check out the DT projects each day this week.¬† See you next time.

Project Thursday ~ Mass Produce Thank You Cards For Winter

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Cards-HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here again today with mass-produce card ideas for this coming Winter / Christmas season.

Every month starting November 2018 until May 2019, I make 60 Thank You cards for donation at a Kids Camp programs. When comes to making a lot of cards or mass producing, I like to use clean-and-simple (CAS) style. I use these three CAS card designs for Winter camp which I made 20 cards for each design.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card1-HelenGullett

On this first one layer & CAS design, I used the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and the Fall Colors Stamp Set. I stamped the trees and dots with white archival ink pad to create the background. And then I stamped the sentiment from Everyday Stamp Set under the trees with VersaFine Clair РGlamorous.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card2-HelenGullett

On this second CAS design, I use the Joy Stamp Set and Everyday Stamp Set. I stamped the wreaths with white archival ink pad to create the background, and then I stamped the Joy word inside one of the wreath with VersaFine Clair РGlamorous. For the sentiment, I stamped it on white cardstock with Memento Desert Sand ink pad, trimmed them into sentiment banner, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card3-HelenGullett

And for this third CAS card, I use the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped the evergreen leaf with white archival ink pad on the top of the card to create the background border. And I use the Everyday Stamp Set for the sentiment that I stamped it on white cardstock VersaFine Clair РGlamorous and trimmed it into sentiment banner. I wrapped the twine around the card, added the sentiment banner, and tied it up a bow. I added a little bit adhesive glue on the back of the sentiment banner to keep it stay on top of the twine.

These cards are done and ready for the kids at the camp to write thank you notes.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Project Thursday ~ A Thank You Card

Hello everyone… November is here!¬†In this¬†season of thanksgiving, there are many ways we can express our gratitude. Today, for our Project Thursday, I¬†have a Thank You card to share with you all that I created¬†using the new¬†Everyday Stamp Set¬†and Fall Colors Stamp Set.

PRS-ProjectThursday-ThankYou-CAS-HelenGullett

I stamped the leaves on vellum paper with VersaFine Clair – Summertime, sprinkled with some clear embossing powder, and heat it up with craft heater. After that I fussy cut the leaves with scissors.

For the sentiment, I stamped on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Pinecone and then I trimmed it into a sentiment strip that fits on top of the wreath.

PRS-ProjectThursday-ThankYou-CAS02-HelenGullett

On a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed into 4 inch x 5.5 inch. I added some gold splatter on it with Finetec Gold Paint and small flat waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and added it on a kraf card with adhesive glue.

I found this paper rope in my stash box and I used it as the wreath. I shaped it into circles and added it on the card with adhesive glue. I held it down until the glue dried with couple acrylic blocks for couple of minutes.

I added couple of the vellum embossed leaves on the wreath with adhesive glue, and then I added the sentiment strip on it with 3D foam tape.

I hope you all like this clean-and-simple card with a twist of layers. Thank you so much for stopping by!
