Inspire Me Friday ~ Hello, Friend

Hello, everyone, and welcome to my first {Inspire Me Friday} post featuring the new release stamp set, Sketchy Alphabet!

I was inspired to play with various colors based on the patterned paper I used on my card base.  The nice thing about this alphabet set is the ability to color the letters any color you want!  I used colored pencils to match the various stripes on my card base.

Using my Mini Misti, I lined up the letters to spell “friend,” and then added the “hello” on top from the Positive Thoughts set.  I added color to the letters using colored pencils. The layered flower mimics the colors in the paper and in my letters.

I hope you are enjoying the Sketchy Alphabet set and how versatile it is for cards and other projects!  If you have projects to share using Precious Remembrance Shop stamps on Instagaram or Facebook, be sure to add #preciousremembrancestamps so we can check them out!

{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!

{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!

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.

{Inspire Me Friday} Birthday Planner Pages

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my first installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring the newest release Date stamp set.

When I received this stamp set, I knew it was time to take the plunge into making my own planner.  My 16-year-daughter started a “bullet journal” around the same time, so we have been giving each other ideas, searching Pinterest, and having a lot of fun together!

I decided to make a two-page spread in order to keep track of birthdays each month.  I started with March, and I had a great time pairing up the Date stamp set with a few other favorites from Precious Remembrance Shop (listed below).

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3007

I started out by stamping the heading box.  Next, I drew the lines with a fine tip Sharpie.  I stamped the month and the dates in green ink (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day).

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3008

Next, I drew two cascading pencil lines in order to create banners spanning both pages.  Once I stamped the mini flags (from the Oh So Fun stamp set), I drew a dashed line with my Sharpie, then erased the pencil.

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3009

I used the splatters from the DIY stamp set across the bottom of both pages, then finished it off with the large circles and sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

Once I finished all of my stamping, I went back and filled in the family and friend birthdays for the month.  Here is how the finished project looks now:

I am still a “newbie” when it comes to planners, and I enjoy learning as I go.  I am having fun with this versatile new release Date stamp set, and it is so fun to mix and match all of my PRS stamps with it!

I’d love to see what you are making with this set…be sure to post your creations at Precious Remembrance Shop Instagram page using #preciousremembranceshop or #preciousremembrancestamps.  I know I would love to learn more ways to use this set in my planner!

{Inspire Me Friday} A Christmas “Thank You So Much”

Hello, everyone!  Its Judy here with a Christmas thank you card that is quick and easy to make!  I paired up two sets for my card: Oh Christmas and Thanks.

oh-christmas-500x500thanks-stamp-set3-500x500

I started out by embossing the sentiment in white on black card stock and die cut it into a label using a Spellbinders die.  Next, I drew a circle on a white card stock panel and stamped the pine boughs from the Oh Christmas set to make a wreath using two different green distress inks (Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters).  Finally, I used gold thread to mount the label to the white panel and framed it in black before adhering onto the green card base.  The final touch of gold and red Stickles on the wreath added some needed sparkle!

Even though there are several layers, this card is still very flat — that is always important to me, especially for mailing purposes!

12-16-16-prs-christmas-thank-you-img_2087

I hope you have enjoyed our Design Team’s week of Christmas thank you cards.  It always amazes me how well the different Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets work together, no matter the season!  I’m sure I will need a bunch of thank you notes after Christmas, and I know what stamp sets I can combine to make them!

{Inspire Me Friday} Merry Christmas Coffee and the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello, friends!  It’s Judy here with a special installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring two of my favorite sets: Coffee Love and Sketchy Christmas.  I hope you have been inspired by all of the Design Team cards and featured stamp sets this week…I know I have!

As luck would have it, today is also Day One of the week-long Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop, and Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors!

2016-winter-clbhWe are giving away a great prize as part of the hop…the “Totally” stamp set!

 

In honor of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop starting today, I made a card featuring my favorite coffee cup stamp and some fun patterned papers.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-img_1772

I started out by stamping the coffee cup onto kraft card stock as well as a gingham patterned paper and plain white card stock.  I fussy cut and paper-pieced the coffee cup before adhering it to the card base.  The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is stamped in green distress ink above two strips of coordinating holiday patterned paper.

12-9-16-prs-coffee-christmas-close-up-img_1779

I embossed the cream card base with a linen embossing plate…I love the rustic feel it adds to the card!  See that popped up circle snowflake?  I punched the circle from another coordinating  patterned paper, centering the snowflake image!  I finished it off by adding a red gem to the center, edging the circle with diamond Stickles, and popping it up on foam dots.  I also filled in the snowflake with a clear, sparkly gel pen…you can see it in just the right light!

Do you have this awesome Coffee Love stamp set?  It is a perfect set to use if you are participating in the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop this week!  I’m thinking this card will go to one of my kids’ teachers  for Christmas along with a Starbuck’s gift card inside!

Thanks for stopping by…and Happy Friday!

{Inspire Me Friday} White Embossing Times Two!

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy stopping by today with my final projects for the Oh, Christmas stamp release!  This time I made two separate projects…both using white embossing powder.

My first project is a card using some non-traditional colors, namely pink and light green.  I embossed the “Merry & Bright” sentiment using Versamark ink and white embossing powder, then watercolored the background using two distress inks (Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet).  Next, I used the same distress inks to watercolor the letters in the sentiment so their colors would be richer and darker.  Finally, I went over the letters with Wink of Stella to add some subtle sparkle.  The pink and green sequins are from our lovely Lisa’s Pretty Pink Posh “Sweet Pea” sequin mix!

Can you see the sparkle?

10-28-16-prs-oh-christmas-project-4-img-1104

 

For my next project, I decided to make a pillow box (to hold a gift card), and I knew this wonderful sentiment would fit perfectly!  I embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder, then stamped the smaller pine branches using Versamark ink and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder.  The three red gems as “berries” are the finishing touch!

10-28-16-prs-oh-christmas-project-4-img-1112

I hope you have enjoyed my projects using the versatile Oh, Christmas stamp set.  Happy stamping and thanks for stopping by today!

{Inspire Me Friday} Merry & Bright

Hello, friends!  It’s Judy here with my  next installment of {Inspire Me Friday} highlighting the Oh Christmas stamp set.  Have you been enjoying all of the wonderful projects shared so far by the Design Team and our Guest Designer this month?  I know I have!

I had some fun with embossing and coloring and adding sparkle to my card for today.  Sometimes a little sparkle is fun, especially on a Christmas card!

10-14-16-prs-oh-christmas-project-3-img-0375

For this square card, I stamped the “Merry & Bright” sentiment in VersaMark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  This helped the inks and the Glossy Accents to remain inside the lines.  I colored the sentiment with various Copic markers, then drew highlights with a white gel pen before covering in Glossy Accents.  The pine branches were stamped twice using two shades of green distress inks, then finished off with a bow punched from red glitter paper and a glitter gem.

10-14-16-prs-oh-christmas-project-3-img-0380

The frame  is an inlaid die cut stitched square using some fun polka dot paper.  This card looks like several layers but it is actually only two!  Nice and flat for mailing.

I hope I’ve inspired you with my project today…thanks for stopping by!

{Inspire Me Friday} Let It Snow!

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my next inspiration project using the new release, Oh Christmas.  I am loving this set, how about you?

Today I went with a snow theme!  Using a blue note card, I embossed the sentiment “Let it snow” using white embossing powder.  Next, I embossed the card using a Cuttlebug “Snowflakes” embossing folder and added some sparkly “Star Dust” Stickles to many of the embossed snowflake centers.  I die cut some snowflakes using light blue glitter paper and Spellbinders snowflakes dies, placing them in a cascade along the side of the card.  Finally, I aded white enamel dots for some dimension and added color.

{Inspire Me Friday} One Layer Christmas

Hello, everyone!  I’m so excited to be here today to share my first clean and simple project using the new release stamp set, Oh Christmas!

I really love one layer cards…they are no fuss to mail and don’t tend to get damaged from all the post office equipment!  So, for today’s project I kept it clean and simple, making a one-layer card that would be easy to mass produce if needed.

9-16-16 PRS Oh Christmas Project 1 IMG 0356

I started with a white card and planned the placement of my sentiment and tree stamps using my Mini Misti.  First, I stamped the sentiment.  (Can I just say that I LOVE this sentiment?  I adore the mix of type and script!)  Next, I stamped the tree using two different distress inks together.  Finally, I embossed the border using a Sizzix tulip frame embossing folder, then added some red metallic gems and clear drops of Glossy Accents for some color and shine.

9-16-16 PRS Oh Christmas Project 1 IMG 0349

 

You could combine this sentiment with so many of the Precious Remembrance Shop Christmas stamp set images…the wreath, the trees, the branch sprigs.  I’m sure you can imagine ways to use this beautiful sentiment on your cards!

Thanks for stopping by today…I hope you enjoyed my card!
