Design It Monday ~ {Total Happiness!}

Hello and Happy New Year! Lisa here today with my first 2018 installment of Design It Monday. Today’s card is all about the stamping!

I drew a couple of light pencil lines on a 4″ x 3 1/2″ rustic ivory panel to help line up the fun graphic images from the Totally Stamp Set. Next came the sentiment using a combination of images. I did some selective inking on the word ‘totally’ and ‘me/you’ (Totally) then added the word ‘happiness’ from the Blossom Stamp Set. After die cutting a pair of file tabs, I added two more words from the Totally Stamp Set.

The design was modern and fun, but still a little too plain. So, I added a trio of flowers from the Blossom Stamp Set using a light green ink. I wanted the look to be subtle but add interest. To connect the rosy pink color throughout the card, I added the splatters (Positive Thoughts) using second generation stamping.

Just a little something funky and fun to brighten your day!

His & Hers Valentines!

Hi friends, Lisa here today sharing some his and hers valentines! These were all made using the Bits & Pieces: Love Coupon collection.

Project_20171227_0004 copy

My first ‘His’ valentine started with two die cut stitched panels. The large XOXO was added with foam dots. I created the tiny banners along the bottom of my focal image with snippets of patterned paper and one of the Bits & Pieces images that is cut in half.

The first of my ‘Hers’ cards began with a dotty PP with die cut edges. The Bits & Pieces images were layered on in a cascading design. A little Wink of Stella, a bit of a paper doily and a few enamel dots bring on that feminine touch.

For my second ‘His’ card, I continued with the stitched die cut panels layered in a wonky manner. Once again I stacked the Bits & Pieces images to keep the design clean and simple.

My final ‘Hers’ valentine is extra feminine with it’s lush red satin bow! I popped the focal Bits & Pieces square onto a die cut tag that was dry embossed with a lace doily impression.

These all went together so quickly with the fun Bits & Pieces: Love Coupon collection. You could mass produce several in no time at all for your family, friends or even those classroom valentines.  Order yours today so you can get to work!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Halloween Treat Bag

Hello, everyone!  I’m so excited that October has arrived because I love making Halloween projects for my little nieces and nephews!  I love the excitement of Halloween, the costumes and the scary stories, the coming of fall and the cooler weather…and who doesn’t love the candy?

My project this week features our newest release set, “Happy Mail,” paired with the fun “Beware” set.  I made a quick and easy treat bag for a little one…and I will likely make more!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-1

I punched circles from card stock that matched the polka dots on my treat bags (from the dollar section at Target — a great find!).  On one side I stamped “TO:” while I stamped the “FROM” on the reverse side.

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-2

I combined stamps from both sets to make the topper for the bag. I thought the “open me if you dare” went perfectly with the upper-case OPEN ME!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-3

I also thought it was a fun touch to stamp “Happy Halloween” directly onto the bag. Can you spy it at the bottom?

Inspire Me Friday ~ Gift Card Pillow Box

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my first project using the new release stamp set, “Happy Mail.”

I love all the little elements in this set!  I must admit, I fell in love with the sweet envelope as soon as I saw it…and that tiny little heart on it? Too cute!

For my project today, I used a pillow box die and cream card stock, then stamped the images using coral and tan inks.  I decorated both sides of the pillow box using the “Happy Mail” set along with a sentiment and little smiley face from the “Coffee Love” set.

Here is one side of the pillow box:

PRS Happy Mail Project 2 -3

PRS Happy Mail Project 2-2

Here is the other side of the pillow box:

PRS Happy Mail Project 2-4

PRS Happy Mail Project 2-5

These PRS stamps make it so easy to decorate pillow boxes, and if you give a lot of gift cards (or cash, candy, or small gifts), this is an easy way to jazz up your packaging!

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  My next “Inspire Me Friday” post will focus on Halloween inspiration with this set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspire Me Friday ~ To Do Lists

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, sharing two bullet journal pages I made using the new Sketchy Alphabet set along with some other favorite stamp sets from Precious Remembrance Shop!

As soon as the school year comes to an end, I usually begin writing my summer “to do” lists.  I often write a new list each week, so this year I decided to make them a little more fun.  I bought a blank journal at the local craft store and thought it would be fun to combine my love of stamping with my love of list-writing!

Here is the first page I did, using the Sketchy Alphabet set to make my heading along with the Date stamp set.  I added some fun flowers from the Blossom set around the page border and the cute smiley face from the Coffee Love set.

For my next page, I decided to highlight my love of coffee using the Sketchy Alphabet set along with the Coffee Love set, one of my all-time favorites!  I colored all of my stamped images with colored pencils.

I have no doubt that I will be using my PRS stamps on future “to do” lists in my journal…and the Sketchy Alphabet set is perfect for personalizing my pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {HB2U Shaker Card}

I have had no shortage of exciting ideas for using the new {Sketchy Alphabet} Stamp set and today’s Create It Wednesday is my last chance to give you a little inspiration. If you love to text or can appreciate the millennial generation’s way of sending greetings, then you know a good HB2U (happy birthday to you…just in case you need a hip lingo refresher lol) makes a fab sentiment!

hb2u

How fun is a shaker card?! I die cut the balloons from the card front to fit my sentiment and used all kinds of fun confetti to sandwich between my acetate window and the base of the card front. I always use two layers of foam tap stacked on top of each other to leave enough room for my goodies to actually shake around. I stamped HB2U using the {Sketchy Alphabet} stamp set on some vellum. Hint- Staz-On ink is great for this and Copics work well on vellum to color in images, like I did here.

A cute blue bow and it’s all ready to share! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations using this new stamp set. If you’ve missed any of them, you can see them at the links below. Stay tuned for the talented Judy Marino’s wrap up on Friday! Thanks and go create 🙂

Inspire Me Friday ~ Congrats, Grad!

Hello, everyone! It’s Judy here with my next {Inspire Me Friday} project using the new “Sketchy Alphabet” stamp set.

It is graduation season, and I am in need of several high school graduation cards this month.  With three teenagers of my own in high school, I find that they are invited to a lot of graduation parties as their older friends graduate.  Their high school color is green, so I used my “Sketchy Alphabet” set and added some green to the sentiment using colored pencils.

6-16-17 PRS Sketchy Alphabet Project 3 IMG_5575

The lovely green sequins are from our very own Lisa Elton’s “Sweet Pea” mix, and the graduation cap is a sticker.  I love the texture it adds to my card!

Create It Wednesday ~ {Sketchy Love Spinner Card}

Today’s Create It Wednesday project is one that I’ve been dying to make…a spinner card! The letters from the {Sketchy Alphabet} Stamp Set were perfect for making my sentiment the star attraction of the card.

This was easier than I expected it to be. I stamped “I [heart] U” twice and die cut them so that I would have a front and back to my spinner. The hearts all come from the {Positive Thoughts} stamp set; for the trio of hearts, I did some masking and coloring so they would be solid black. I sandwiched my string between the two pieces and glued it into place with a strong adhesive.

I created the frame and and card front using the same nesting dies and assembled the card by layering my pieces onto the card in this order: plenty of adhesive, string and spinner stretched across the window, tan & white striped cardstock, then red and pink border. It’s really important to get the order right…ask me how I know 🙂

Hopefully, you’ll give the spinner card a try and find awesome sentiments using the {Sketchy Alphabet} stamp set letters to catch somebody special’s attention! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome hump day!

Design It Monday ~ {Sweet P!}

Hi friends and welcome to another installment of Design it Monday! I have a personalized card for my little granddaughter featuring the Sketchy Alphabet set along with the Sweet Pea stamp set.

17 0611 001 copy

I began with some patterned paper, a paper doily and a die cute doily. These were added to a marshmallow card base topped with a champagne card stock panel. Next came the pretty little pea pod that was colored with Copics then highlighted with Wink of Stella. There are a few dew drops on the pea pod and surrounding area made from Glossy Accents. I stamped my letters and number then punched them out with a 3/4″ circle punch. They’re added to the card with foam squares. I did some selective inking on the Sweet Pea sentiment.

17 0611 003 copy

I added Wink of Stella on the number and letters too. After all, little girls do love sparkle! Who am I kidding, big girls love sparkle too!

I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. Thanks for visiting PRS today. Your comments always bring a smile to my face!

Inspire Me Friday ~ #bestdadever

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with a fun Father’s Day card using the new Sketchy Alphabet stamp set!

I don’t know about you, but it seems to me we frequently use phrases that follow a hashtag, especially in social media.  When I saw the hashtag in the Sketchy Alphabet set, I knew I would use it for a card like this.  With Father’s Day right around the corner, this presented the perfect opportunity!

6-2-17 PRS Sketchy Alphabet Project 2 IMG_5502

I simply stamped the sentiment using black ink across a white panel, then mounted on a black border using an old border punch.  I paired a strip of patterned paper onto a coordinating aqua blue card base and put it all together.  I kept the sentiment black and white, but you could easily color in the letters for a splash of color.

6-2-17 PRS Sketchy Alphabet Project 2 IMG_5504

Can you think of other “hashtag” phrases you could use on a card?  I think it is a great way to personalize your handmade cards.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!
