Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett

Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp Set, Oh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_01

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Inspire Me Friday – {for you}

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  I’m here today with one final project using the fun Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  For my project today I decided to create a gift bag using one of the white bags available in the Precious Remembrance Shop store. 

for you bag 4

My little bag is pretty simple.  I started by creating a rosette from some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye.  I used a small circle on the back to stabilize the rosette and then adhered the rosette to a pink doily that you can also find in the Precious Remembrance Shop store.   Using a neutral piece of paper from the same pad I stamped the words ‘for’ and ‘you’ in pink and then die cut it with a circle die.   The circle was adhered to the rosette and then I added a little bow twine with some paper twine.    To complete the bag I added a strip of coordinating patterned paper to the bag and a pink button (rose quartz from the Precious Remembrance Shop store) to the center of the twine.     I hope you will give this super fun and easy project a try using your Precious Remembrance Shop stamps!  Don’t forget… if you place a qualifying order of $30 or more you will automatically receive 10 stamp storage pouches!

Hope you have a wonderful day… thanks for stopping by!

Create It Wednesday~Gift For You

So glad you’ve joined me for another Create It Wednesday post.  There are lots of gift giving occasions coming up including Mother’s Day & graduation.  But it’s also fun to surprise someone with a little something unexpected.  I’ve dressed up a Plain White Flat Paper Bag from the PRS Store.  PRS DT April 1 (1)To begin, I created a tag using the partial die cutting technique with a circle die to fit a Mini White Doilie.  After attaching the doily, I stamped the rest of my tag with the splatters from the Positive Thoughts stamp set using a light green marker.  A scrap of light green cardstock was die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh border die to cover where I cut the doily in half.  Yellow and green Hand Dyed Buttons were easily added with liquid glue.  These beautiful buttons are available in several colors in the PRS Store.  I stamped the letters I needed from the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set in black ink on the green cardstock and punched them out with a little circle punch.  The letters were colored with the green marker and then covered with glitter glue for a fun sparkle. PRS DT April 1 Close Up I had enough of the cardstock left to cut 3 thin strips for the bottom of the tag.  Yellow and white twine was tied in a bow & attached with liquid glue to finish it off.  Before adhering the tag, I stamped a few solid and open hearts from the Love Coupon and the Happy Art stamp sets in yellow ink.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your next packaging project.  Have a great day!

Design It Monday ~ {Two Peas!}

Hello friends! Lisa here today with another installment of Design It Monday. Once again highlighting the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set, I’ve paired it with the Sweet Pea stamp set. Check it out!

Project_20180408_0001 copy

The color scheme for this card was based on the pretty little yellow doily. These (along with blue, pink & white) are available in the PRS shop. I framed the pea pod in a Polaroid die cut then added it to the card along with a selection of coordinating decorative paper. Using selective inking, I added the ‘two peas’ sentiment. Next came the Sketchy Alphabet letters. After stamping and coloring (Tombow Marker) the letters, I punched them out then added them to the card with foam tape.

Easy peasy ~haha, see what I did there!

Project Thursday ~ Fun Projects With Bits and Pieces, Stamp Set, Buttons and Mini Doilies

Hello Precious Remembrance Fans… It is Thursday and time for Project Thursday. Today I have 2 projects to share with you that I created using the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces, Happy Art Stamp Set, Antique Gray Buttons, and Mini Doilies.

PRS-DailyThoughts-BitsAndPieces-MixedMediaTag01-HelenGullett

My first project is a mixed media tag. I started with creating the tag background. I used watercolor 140 lbs paper for the tag because I like it thickness and sturdiness, especially with I works with mediums and water. I added Distress Oxide Inks on my craft mat – one color at a time – then I sprayed with water and dip my tag. I dried the color each time I added color to build up the layers of colors.

PRS-DailyThoughts-BitsAndPieces-MixedMediaTag02-HelenGullett

After all colors dried, I added some water splatters on it and dabbed it off with paper towel. Then I added thin layer of white gesso around the edge using my finger. I dried it with craft heater and then I stamped the triangles and hearts from the Happy Art Stamp Set with Black Archival Ink Pad. I dried the ink again with craft heater.

Next, I added some gel medium to cover the tag with foam brush, added one of the Mini White Mini Doilies on top of it and then added some gel medium again all over it. This will glue and seal the doily on the tag. Then I added some more white gesso randomly on the tag.

PRS-DailyThoughts-BitsAndPieces-MixedMediaTag03-HelenGullett

Once the gesso is dry, I added one of the big cassette from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces Set with dries-clear adhesive glue. Next, I added the word strips and stars on the tag with dries-clear adhesive glue and I added some mini staplers on them for extra accent.

PRS-DailyThoughts-BitsAndPieces-MixedMediaTag04-HelenGullett

I added the buttons strip on the tag with 3D foam tape for extra dimension. And I embellished the tag with more star and buttons. That finished the tag 🙂

And for my second project it is a Thinking of You card. The front card is a clean-and-simple design. I stamped the scribble and splatter images from Happy Art Stamp Set in the middle of the white card. Then I added the Thinking of You piece on it with 3D foam tape and added the stars with dries-clear adhesive.

And for the inside, I created this pop-up using this tutorial. For the back of the cassette, I trimmed a white cardstock that the same size with the cassette. I used one of the Mini Yellow Doilies.

I hope you all enjoy today’s projects post. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {never give up} bag and tag

Welcome! It’s Kelly here! I’m back today sharing a new companion project that goes along with the project I made last time. I really liked how my card turned out, so I decided to make a coordinating bag and tag. To begin, I got to work stamping images from the DIY Stamp set and the Daily Thoughts stamp set onto a Flat Kraft Bag. These are perfect for all kinds of gift giving or even to use as an envelope for your card. I plan on using it to add a chocolate bar or a sweet treat for someone who is going through a hard time. They also work well for gift cards, especially the kind you find at the big kiosks at the store that have the large part with the hang tag. I hate taking those off, but they are hard to fit in traditional gift card holders! These flat bags are the perfect solution!

I used white pigment ink and black for a bold look. I just love how the sentiments from these two stamp sets mix and match so well. I always like adding a tag for some extra detail.

I ran some Kraft paper through my paper crimping tool and adhered it to the white base. I also embossed the feather onto vellum using gold powder. I used the “never give up” sentiment from the DIY set and the other sentiment is from Daily Thoughts. I used a large eyelet to secure all three of the layers. It is a great alternative to glue when using vellum. I also added a bit of Black and White baker’s twine. I think this project will complement the card nicely. Thanks for joining me today.

Create it Wednesday~Daily Thoughts Gift Bag

Welcome to another edition of Create it Wednesday.  My project today is a gift bag to brighten someone’s day.  The PRS store has both white & kraft bags available.  I started by making a double tag.  Several of the encouraging sentiments in the Daily Thoughts stamp set were lined up on an acrylic block & stamped repeatedly in brown ink on a white die cut rectangle.  At the bottom I overstamped two leaves from the DIY stamp set in Brilliance Pearlescent Olive ink & added a little wooden star.

The tag was attached at an angle to a vellum die cut rectangle.  I used a brown twine bow & a little white clothespin to add the tag at the top of the bag.

PRS Daily Thoughts Bag

Little star clusters from Daily Thoughts were stamped randomly in kraft ink around the tag.  Now it’s ready to fill with treats, a paperback book or better yet–a stamp set from the PRS Store!  Hope I’ve given you some ideas for personalizing a gift bag with stamping.

Project Thursday ~ DIY Kraft Gift Bag

Hello everyone… Happy Thursday! Helen is here today with a Project Thursday to share with you that I created with Precious Remembrance clear stamps and Gift Wrap supplies.

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-01

To create this gift bag is pretty simple 🙂 It is a project that you can make in short time or mass-produce for your party.

First, randomly I stamped the cassette tape image from Daily Thoughts Stamp Set on all over the front of a Plain Kraft / Flat Paper Bag with similar color dye ink pad. Quick and easy stamping, right 🙂

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-03

Next is to create the personalized mini wooden clip and gift tag.

For the mini wooden clip, I stamped the stars from Daily Thoughts Stamp Set directly on the mini wooden clip using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink Pad. I set it aside to dry while working on the tag.

I stamped the sentiment box and sentiment phrase from the Happy Mail Stamp Set on a piece of white cardstock using Orange dye ink pad. Then, I trimmed it down and turned it into a tag. You also an use any tag dies if you have 🙂

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-02

I stacked one of the Mini Yellow Doilies, then the gift tag, and twine bow together, and clipped them on the stamped kraft paper bag with the personalized mini wooden clip.

The size of this paper bag is 6 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ that is ideal and big enough to stuff fun gifts inside and finish it with some white tissue paper.

I hope you all enjoy this Project Thursday this week… and don’t forget to check the Precious Remembrance store for more stamps, embellishments, gift wraps, and more…!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Inspire Me Friday – {A Gift Bag}

Hello PRS fans!!  I’m here today sharing a fun little gift bag that I put together using some pieces from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack, stamps from the Daily Thoughts stamp set and one of the white bags available in the Precious Remembrance Shop store.

20180209_122759

I started my project by pulling out some of the pieces that I wanted to use.  The color scheme was based on the color of the stars that appear on the ends of two of the word strips.  I found some patterned paper that was a good match and created a rosette using a die I have in my collection.  To stabilize the rosette I added a circle to the back and then adhered the circular sentiment and the strip sentiments from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces collection.  I cut a strip of patterned paper from the same collection as the rosette and stamped it with one of the little square images from the Daily Thoughts set using inks that were a close match to the colors of the stars.  Then I used the star images from the Daily Thoughts set to randomly stamp all over the white bag using the same colors.   Once I had the bag covered to my liking I adhered the stamp strip.  I found baker’s twine in my stash that matched and tied that around the bag making the bow rather large so it would peek out from around the rosette once I adhered it to the bag.   A quick gift bag that you could fill with small goodies to gift to a good friend or family member!  I hope I inspired you to create a gift bag for a special occasion!

Have a wonderful day!!

Design It Monday ~ {It’s in the Bag!}

Hello and welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I have a fun project using one of the Plain White Flat Paper Bags available in the PRS store. These are a terrific size measuring 6 1/4″ x 9 1/4″.

Project_20180106_0013 copy

After deciding the positioning of the cassette tape from the new Bits & Pieces: Daily Thoughts, I began the stamping. The two dotted rectangles from the Love Coupon Stamp Set are stamped in Brown Memento Ink. Next came the sentiment and little star clusters from the new Daily Thoughts Stamps Set using Ocean Tides ink.

Project_20180106_0015 copy

I stamped a line border (Holiday Wishes Stamp Set) twice along the top of the bag. There are two small holes punched through both layers of the bag to thread the gold twine through. A felt star and chunky button dress up the closure.

Project_20180106_0018 copy

After stamping the sentiment onto the cassette die cut, it was mounted onto fun foam for depth. I also used a Copic marker to change the color of the tape in the cassette to brown. I attached a length of brown ribbon (using glue dots) to look as though the tape was unraveling. My teammate Kelly did this one of her cards. I was so happy to see someone else remembered this frustrating event with cassette tapes! It always took a little pinky finger or pencil to wind the tape back in. Sometimes it was successful, sometimes not! Oh, the good ol’ days!

Project_20180106_0012 copy

Isn’t this sentiment wonderful? The Daily Thoughts Stamp Set is full of so many like this. I can tuck a special card, inspirational reading or listening material into this bag as a gift to lift someone’s spirits. A little chocolate wouldn’t hurt either!!
