Merry Christmas Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set. I love these two stamp sets and since Christmas is around the corner… I thought I’d inspire you with this layout. I had so much fun creating this layout. And I love how joyful and colorful this layout is.

MERRY CHRISTMAS_DEC2019_PRECIOUS REMEMBRANCE SHOP (1)blogim

To begin, I sprayed Colorations Sprays all over white cardstock. Once the ink was dry, I stamped several shapes/sentiments onto the cardstock. Then I used my circle punch, star punch and scissors to cut out the images to use for my layout.

I love the little sketchy trees! They are adorable. I added some jewels and a star to one of the trees to make it fun.

I used the “Merry Christmas” sentiment as my title at the top of the layout and then I stamped the “greetings” sentiment onto the little tab to help embellish the photo a bit.

So many embellishments and lots of color on this festive layout. It totally gets me in the mood for Christmas!

Happy Holidays Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone! Who’s ready for the holidays? Today, I’m sharing a holiday layout I created using the Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set along with some Oh Christmas Bits & Pieces.

Merry Christmas_Precious Remembrance Shop

To begin, I sprayed Colorations Sprays by Art Anthology onto white cardstock. The Indigo and Peacock Feathers sprays go perfectly with the die cuts. They are very close in colors. A perfect match if you ask me. I used the “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” sentiment as titles/sub-titles for the layout. I stamped the “Happy Holidays” sentiment on white cardstock using black ink and then I cut the image out using scissors. I used foam squares to pop it up off the page a bit.

I used a few die cuts, enamel dots and puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. The embellishments worked with the color scheme I was working with. I added a few pieces of red because when I think of Christmas,  think of the colors green and red.

Love the little scribble line from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp set. I used it just below sentiments at the bottom.

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 – Glamorous.

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 – Glamorous. 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 – Glamorous 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!

Tuesday Ideas {A wonderful holiday Season}

Hello, it’s Kelly here today! The month is already almost half over which means the countdown to Christmas is on! Christmas crafting is always so much fun, especially when you have fun stamps to play with like the amazing Joy stamp set! I love all of the fun images and it pairs so nicely with the Everyday stamp set for an unexpected design!

I created the wonky circle piece using one of the images from the Everyday stamp set and adhered it to an A2 card base. On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the wreath image using Chartreuse ink in the left hand corner. I stamped the hearts from the Everyday stamp set in the bottom right corner as well as some additional sentiments from the Joy stamp set for a fun, collage style card.

The focal image is stamped in black and cut out and adhered to the card using foam squares for some extra dimension. I also stamped the skinny sentiment and trimmed it out and added it to the focal image where it says Message:. I thought that it gave the card an extra pop of color and balance. Of course I also added a few red Nuvo drops around the wreath to mimic some festive berries. A simply bow of red baker’s twine finishes off this collage Christmas card.

Create It Wednesday~Christmas Cards

Once again it’s time to ramp up holiday crafting, so I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  PRS DT Nov both no wmI used three PRS sets including Everyday Stamp Set, Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set.  The A2 size card was done by stamping the large background image from Everyday Stamp Set using Distress Ink faded jeans on a watercolor panel.  PRS DT Nov first no wmThen I spritzed with water & let the ink spread on it’s own.  When it was dry I stamped a Sketchy Christmas tree in Distress Oxide lucky clover and Merry Christmas in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  A stitched rectangle was dry embossed for a frame and I popped up the Happy New Year sentiment strip.  To finish things off, I added silver confetti to match the silver mat.  Sometimes it’s fun to make a smaller card, like my second one which is 3 1/2 x 4  3/4.  PRS DT Nov second no wmAgain I stamped the background image from Everyday Stamp Set.  This time I used pumice stone Distress Ink & blended with a wet brush.  Kind of looks like mountains–perfect for a modern, rustic design.  I stamped the triangle tree from Sketchy Christmas three times in lucky clover Distress Oxide and the word Joy from the Joy Stamp Set in Distress Oxide candied apple.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added a couple extra layers of cardstock for dimension.  I sponged the pumice stone ink on the card front before adding the panel.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your holiday cardmaking.  See you next time.

Project Thursday ~ CAS Holiday Thank You Card

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here. Today, I have a CAS Holiday card to share with you all. I know we are just stepping into Fall Season, but I thought it is a good time to start the Holiday projects, too.

We receive Christmas cards and gifts in the Holiday season, it is always nice to have some thank you cards ready to send to express our gratitude for their kindness and love.

It is very simple to create this card.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_03

I started with stamping the wreath from Joy Stamp Set on white cardstock using VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis. I stamped it multiple times. After stamping the wreaths, I added some red dots on the wreaths for the berries using craft stylus and VersaFine Clair – Glamorous.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_04

I dried all the stamped images with craft heater and then fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

On a A2 white card, I stamped the stripes from the Joy Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair – Nocturne (black) and my Mini MISTI.

Then, I stamped the thanks sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous. I trimmed the sentiment in to a banner strip that would fit on top of the wreath.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_02

I added the wreath on the card with 3D foam tape and then I added the sentiment banner strip on top of the wreath with adhesive glue.

It is done. This Holiday Thank You Card is quick and easy to mass-produce. I hope this inspire you to start your Holiday projects.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Hi stampers! Happy Monday!:) Let’s start our week with a brand new project idea, and this time it’s for your planner!

This month has been full of Christmas project ideas, from cards, gift wraps, tags, & more!:) Christmas is definitely getting closer, and what a fun time to document each day, look back, and see all the activities you did every year.

Here are some inspiration on how you can decorate your planner using our Oh Christmas Sticker Collection + our stamps – JOY, Happy Mail, Sketchy Christmas.

See the entire collection here:

OH CHRISTMAS STICKER COLLECTION

On the top, you can use these days of the week stickers & can easily write your own date since it’s not labelled by year. Nice!:)

Start adding stickers & space for writing. You have an option to keep it open / white space. Have fun!

I wanted to incorporate different shapes & texture. I decided to stamped some images on some other boxes. You can easily mix & match our collection.

Weekends is a family day for us!:) So I know I don’t need too much space to write notes. But if you do, don’t add stickers yet, & place it later on.:)

That’s my Christmas week planner. I can’t wait to fill it with fun & unforgettable notes!

Thank you so much for joining me today.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.:)

DIY: Gift Wrapping Paper!

Happy Saturday stampers! I’m back with another fun gift wrapping idea!

Have you seen the last one that I made using paper bag? If you missed it, you may check it here.

Today’s project is all about making your own gift wrapping paper – using stamps!:)

Yay!:) If your gifts are bigger, find a roll of plain wrapping paper or a roll of plain art paper that you can easily stamp on. What I made here is a smaller box – like for jewelry. Which you can easily use a printing paper and stamp on it!

STAMPS: Happy Mail , Happy Art, Sketchy Christmas , Joy

Making your own patterned gift wrapping paper is very special and has a personal touch!

It’s a memorable one for sure!:)

Now, are you ready to create your own DIY gift wrapping paper?:)

Design It Monday ~ {Just for You!}

Hi friends! I have a project just for you today to inspire your Christmas gift wrapping this year. PRS has several Christmas stamp sets that will let you put personal touches on your gifts.

Project_20171112_0001 copy

This little brown box had some kind of part we ordered through the mail. I love the cute size and decided to dress it up for Christmas. It started with the wreath from the Joy Stamp Set. After stamping it on a die cut circle, I added the small pine sprig from the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. One row along the outside of the wreath, one along the inside. I stamped them off first to give them a softer appearance. Next came the ‘Special Delivery’ sentiment (Happy Mail Stamp Set).

Project_20171112_0002 copy

The focal of the wreath consists of three fussy cut stars (Oh Christmas Stamp Set) and a little stamp (Happy Mail Stamp Set). I used a tiny hole punch on the stamp to give it a realistic look!

Project_20171112_0005 copy

The gingham and twine bow was jazzed up with a few fussy cut pine sprigs (Oh Christmas Stamp Set). Those teeny berries on the wreath were calling for some of my favorite aqua rhinestones. The paper doily adds a feminine touch. but you could leave this off if you need a masculine look.

Now what to put in this little box…hmmm…
