Design It Monday ~ Tiny Treats!

Hello Precious Remembrance Shop friends! Lisa here today with my first Design it Monday using the newly released Date Stamp Set. I’ve paired this versatile set up with a couple of others from the shop to create some fun tiny treats!

To begin my project, I created tags using the month and number images.  I stamped the heart rectangle from the This Moment Stamp Set then added the month from the Date Stamp Set. My day of the month was stamped on polka dot paper then punched with a 1/2″ circle punch. This was added to the tag with a foam pop dot. The teeny hearts from the Sweet Pea Stamp Set were added next.

The tags were adhered to a die cut heart. After adding the gray polka dot ribbon, I glued on the teddy bear from the retired Little One Stamp Set. I stamped just the head of the bear, colored with Copics then fussy cut.

These were popped onto tiny glassine bags measuring 4″ X 2 3/4″. When shopping for Valentine tiny treats to put in the bags, I was delighted to find Tiny Conversation Hearts!

Stay tuned for more projects from the team featuring our new set! LisaDT-659x1024

{Crafty Sunday} bundle of joy

Happy Sunday!  Time to begin another week to work a bit, hopefully laugh a bunch and don’t forget your creative side.   This past week I spent a little time working on this card set, using as many stamps as I possibly and loving it.  From the border stamps to the cute baby buggy and stars, think I may have fit in just enough, so lets break it down.

Here are the sets that I used to create this card:

To begin stamp the base of the card/cardstock with layers of border stamps and paint splatter stamps.  Paint and stamp the chipboard piece and add rope to the top corner then adhere to the front of the card.  Lay thread on top of chipboard piece before pocket is added. Stamp and adhere kraft pocket on top of chipboard piece.   Stamp tab using border tape stamp, but out and staple to pocket.  Stamp stars and buggy onto cardstock, cut out and adhere to front of card.  (Note:  I used a border tape stamp on the buggy to add more detail.)  Thread and Adhere buttons to the buggy.  Stamp “celebrate” onto cardstock, cut out and adhere to card.  Add beads to card.

Created a gift pocket for the card using a brown paper bag using similar sets, but also used the “Holiday Wishes” set to stamp white on the bag.  That completes this project.  Hope you are having a relaxing day and enjoy your week.

Design It Monday ~ {Girl Time}

Giveaway winner announced! Click HERE.

—————————————————————————

Hello friends did you enjoy your weekend? I hope so. How nice of you to start you week off by joining us here at the Precious Remembrance Shop blog! I have a pretty little number today that is all out sweet and girly! It’s so nice to put in some real girl time on a card. Reaching for all of those pink, soft, feminine and frilly items is just what I did when designing this card.

Polka dot paper with different shades of pink set the tone for my card. The scallop border was made using the little cup from the new {Coffee Love} set and the heart border from the {Little One} set. A pretty white paper doily along with a die cut doily serve as the backdrop for a felt library pocket. The embellishments on the library pocket bring forward the different shades of pink from the polka dot paper.

The tag that goes in the pocket holds the sentiment for the card. I split it in half so that part shows while the tag is in the pocket and the other part is hidden. I just adore this paper with the tiny raspberries on it!

See I told you I got girly with this one! I love the way it turned out and I hope I’ve inspired you to get girly with your crafting! Thank you for joining us today, we appreciate your visits and comments. Have a wonderful day!

Congratulations Card and Border Tapes!

Hi stampers! I hope you had an awesome weekend with your family and friends.♥ It’s great to be back sharing more projects again!:) Look what I made! I found this adorable paper that will totally remind you of our Border Tape #1 stamp set. Sweet!♥

I just can’t get over with the cuteness of this paper, I thought by adding more of that similar pattern onto my card will make it more fun {or shall we say…inspired by the patterned paper.lol}! I went ahead and grab my border tape stamp set, I did 2nd generation stamping to have that soft look of the borders. Using different colors of inks and layering will give more texture to the stamped image.

{ Stamp Sets : Little One , Border Tape #1 Buttons: Simply Butter, Baby Blue }

I hope you got inspired with my quick project for today.♥

Keep on creating and enjoy the day!

Happy 4th of July! – Celebrate Card

Hello stampers! Are you guys ready for July 4th?:) I know most of you are pretty much done preparing for the party celebration.  I have a celebrate card to share, pretty easy to make.^_^

Now, let’s jump onto the process of this card.♥

  • I started with a white card base (I know right? where’s my kraft?lol). I stamped my “fireworks”  and stars using, guess what?:) Little One stamp set. cute!^_^ Blue and red inks and you’re done!
  • But I wanted my card to have a softer look. And I was going back and forth whether to add it or not, you can’t probably tell from the photo, but I ended up adding a vellum.
  • I barely use vellum in my projects, I found it challenging to stamp (unless I embossed on it, then it’s ok with me.^_^). But whatever, I’ll give it another try anyway. So……
  • I added a clear glue on every edges of the cardbase, and put my vellum on top of it.
  • After cutting the excess vellum around, I distressed the edges using the broken china distress ink by ranger.
  • And here comes my favorite part , stamping on vellum! (yeah right?lol)
  • Using the same distress ink, I grabbed my borders from Christmas and Positive Thoughts stamp sets. Carefully I stamped each one of them. Wheew!
  • I then stamped my sentiment “celebrate” from the Birthday stamp set. I added a piece of scrap paper at the bottom for some interest.
  • I stamped more stars as well randomly on the vellum. Now you can see the difference between the softer and the sharper stars.
  • Lastly, I thought it would be fun to add some staples around, so that’s what I did!♥
  • Hooray! I did it! I call it done!^_^

Have a happy holiday! Thanks for joining me today. Don’t forget, Join us on Friday July 5,2013 for our new stamp release + giveaway!

Enjoy the day!

Inspire Me Friday {a star is born}

Happy to have you here for my last creation with the Little One set today! On today’s project, I’ve put to use a couple sentiments from the set, and that delicate little star border…

…that little thing stamps like a dream!  I was kind of inspired by a Father’s Day card I made for my hubby using a large star die cut and a starburst.  I thought it might be fun to use the little border as the pretty little rays of my starburst.  I just positioned the star first, and marked the center area that would be covered by it later. There was no exact science to how much of the border I inked up each time to create the starburst, so I knew the center might be a little messy.  My markings gave me an idea of how much ‘room for error’ I had.  Then I just inked up longer or shorter portions of the border as needed, and tried to stamp them as symmetrically as possible…didn’t have too many problems with that…

You can see the little banner I created with one of the sentiments.  I’ve found when I need a curved banner (I don’t have any dies for that) it’s easiest to start with a large circle die or punch.  I curved my stamp a little to follow the curve of the circle I cut, then followed that same curve with my scissor beneath the letters I’d stamped, leaving  room on each end for the cutting and folding of the tails.  I just can’t seem to hand-cut a symmetrical curve, so beginning with a perfect circle from a die/punch helps with that.  I also included the ‘Congratulations’ sentiment from the same set at the bottom to finish the card off.

And there you have it for your Friday inspiration…hope you enjoyed it!  We’re all wrapping this Little One set up just in time for a new one Dyane is introducing soon, so stay tuned!!!

Thanks so much for dropping in today!

Design It Monday ~ {A Star is Born}

We all know the definition of a star is an object of five or six points. Another being an outstanding performer. But the first definition of this noun is a heavenly body. And what, might I ask, could be more heavenly than the gift of a precious new baby!!??!! Dyane has given us various star images to choose from in the new Little One set. See if you can spot those I’ve used in the card I’m sharing today!

I must say I’m quite smitten with the delicate stars and dashes border from this set. I’ve used them to dangle my layered stars from this soft green scallop border. The stars are layered die cuts and buttons. I saw the flowers as rounded star points! They’re stamped with the polka dot border from the Mom & Dad set then topped with a button matching my cardstock. I like to pull my cardstock color to the front of my card for a more uniformed and complete design.

This darling sentiment tucks into the star perfectly! Not your traditional baby colors here, something more suitable for that up and coming outstanding performer to be!! So happy you could stop by today, take care.

Gender Neutral Baby Shower, Mason Jar Tags

Hi everyone! It’s Nicole, here again to share my final project with this adorable stamp set, and I couldn’t help myself but make another party decoration using the set, Little One. The, ‘It’s a…Boy? Girl?’ stamp is so cute, and can be used in so many ways for a baby shower, invitations, congratulations card, or announcement. But, I always love using stamps for party decor—so today I’m making a mason jar tag for a gender neutral baby shower. I’ve always noticed that there aren’t that many gender neutral products in the handmade world; so, I thought I’d use this particular stamp for this theme—and it came out so cute! Here’s what I did:

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white card stock, in chocolate brown, Memento Ink, and cut it out along the edge. Next, I applied some, vintage stain distress ink using my ink blender. Next I cut out a piece of yellow and green flower, pattern paper and made it big enough to leave a border around the previously cut sentiment. Once that was finished, I colored in the hearts on this stamped image using a yellow Copic marker.

Next, I thought it would be cute to add some question marks to the sentiment–to indicate that the gender is unknown. I used one of my favorite alphabet sets to do this.

Next, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes into the tag, and I used some twine to wrap it around the top of the mason jar.

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my last project; and, I hope you have been inspired! Thank you so much for having me—this was so much fun!
