Design It Monday ~ {Special Delivery!}

Hidyho stampers! Lisa here today with a fun little Halloween treat bag that’s super easy to make. If you have a Misti you can knock several of these out in no time!

I lined up all of the circle images from the Beware stamp set on my Misti then stamped them with black ink. Next came the Open Me sentiment from the Happy Mail stamp set. Keep in mind how you want the bag to be opened when stamping this image. I colored the images with Tombow Brush Markers then added some glitter to the outer circle with a Gelly Roll pen. I decided to make the date image pop a little more, so I stamped it on purple cardstock then punched it out. It’s added to the bag with a big foam dot.

The envelope from the Happy Mail stamp set was stamped twice onto the textured lime green cardstock then fussy cut. I added more of that Gelly Roll glitter on the teeny hearts. After die cutting a banner, I stamped the deliver sentiment (Happy Mail). I added this to the tag then tucked the two envelops in.

I gussied up the tag with a fun junk bow then addressed it. This will go to the two little kiddos across the street. I’ll tuck it into their mailbox as a fun surprise on Halloween since Trick or Treat takes place the weekend before. Word has it they’re crazy for suckers! Looks like they’re getting treats from us twice this year. Its okay, they’re a pair of cutie patooties and totally worth it!

Design It Monday ~ {You’ve Got Mail}!

Hey there stampers! I have an autumn card to share with you featuring the newest Happy Mail stamp set. I wanted to create a fun background for this one. Hope you like it!

17 0921 003 copy

I’ve stamped the You’ve Got Mail sentiment repeatedly using a soft gray ink on a cream background. Next I filled in with the set of arrows. It looked just a bit too plain, so I added the dots from the Fall Colors stamp set.

17 0921 005 copy

This panel was added to a cream card base then topped with some die cut patterned paper from my stash. My focal was created with two stamped and fussy cut leaves from the Fall Colors set and the postage stamp image from the Happy Mail set.

17 0921 004 copy

I trimmed along the edges of the stamped image then used a tiny hole punch to give it the look of a real stamp! Don’t you just love the way this looks!

Design It Monday ~ {Sweet Treats!}

Hello PRS friends! Lisa here today with my first Design It Monday post featuring the newly released Happy Mail stamp set. Dyane has challenged the team to create a Halloween themed project this month. I decided to make a fun treat box!

17 0914 007 copy

I stamped the checklist image from the Happy Mail stamp set replacing one of the choices with ‘Sweet Treats’ from the Beware stamp set. I popped this onto a little panel made with patterned paper. Using selective inking on the small row of arrows (Happy Mail), I checked the items off on the list.

17 0914 010 copy

I stamped the spider web from the Beware set then added a fun pumpkin button and a couple of tiny hand cut banners. After everything was added to the milk carton I stamped one of the Washi images from the Beware set. It’s added to the checklist panel to look as though the tape is holding it in place.

17 0914 011 copy

When deciding what to put in the little milk carton and who it would be for, thoughts of my son being a little trick or treater came to mind. It was like taking a walk down memory lane with his costumes running through my head!

17 0914 008 copy

He’s a grown man and a daddy now, but he still likes a certain sweet treat!

Thanks for stopping by today. Stay tuned for some very fun projects from the design team this go around!

Design It Monday ~ {My Girl!}

I was sneaky in finding out what my son’s favorite photo is of his baby girl. I knew it would become a refrigerator magnet for him for Father’s Day.

After elongating a tag die cut, I added the Sketchy Alphabet letters to the top spelling out MY GIRL. A strip of die cut hearts stamped with a sentiment from the Love Coupon Stamp Set anchors the photo. That precious photo was dolled up with a wee strip of patterned paper, buttons, sequins and a ribbon tab.

17 0618 004 copy

When everything was complete the top seemed a little bare needing a pop of black. Another sentiment from the Love Coupon Stamp Set was the perfect fit!

17 0618 007 copy

His baby girl is now 2 1/2! She drew some squiggly lines on the back for daddy and I popped on two magnets. She was very excited to give it to him on Father’s Day! In case you didn’t know, this little one was the inspiration for my Sweet Pea Stamp Set! Everyone says “she sure is grandma’s girl”…they’re right she’s my girl!

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!

Design It Monday ~ {Happy Birthday!}

Hello and Happy Memorial Day! I don’t have a memorial card to share, but how about a birthday card! I’ve mixed images from several stamp sets with the numbers from the Sketchy Alphabet set.

17 0526 001 copy

I created a mask then stamped the numbers inside the small jar from the Oh So Fun stamp set. The number 3 & 6 were placed close together and colored in to highlight the birthday being celebrated. My jar was fussy cut then placed over stamped images on a white panel. I used the grid-like tape from the retired Border Tape #1 set along with the circles from the Positive Thoughts set. I decided I wanted to add more of the aqua color inside the jar. The teeny heart from my Sweet Pea stamp set worked perfectly!

The sentiment and it’s frame (Oh So Fun stamp set) were added to a tag die cut then popped onto the card with foam tape. A couple of tiny rhinestones help to pull the gray colors together.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this card brought a smile to your face today!

Design It Monday ~ {Thank You!}

Hello, Lisa here today with a project featuring our new Sketchy Alphabet stamp set. I’ve paired it up with some of our previously released sets to create a school themed thank you card. Something suitable for a teacher or even the bus driver!

I left all of the letters intact on the acetate sheet they came on. Using Washi Tape to hold it in place, I inked up just the letters and stamped them on an aqua panel with my Misti. Next came the star splatters from the Journey stamp set. My sentiment is from the Thanks set.

To make the thank you even more special, I whipped up a little goodie bag with some sweet treats! A few letters from the Sketchy Alphabet set along with the school bus from the School Days set were added to die cut pieces. I dressed them up with patterned paper, a die cut doily and ribbon. The windshield on the bus is coated with glossy accents and the headlights are rhinestones! Just some added fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We have tons of inspiration headed your way using the new Sketchy Alphabet set. Stay tuned…

Design It Monday!

Hi there! Lisa here today with my final Design It Monday post featuring the Date Stamp Set. With the first day of spring right around the corner, I thought a light and airy card was in order!

17 0310 002 copy

I had a scrap of water colored paper left over from another project. It was the perfect size for this die cut butterfly. I added the month of April to it’s wing using Versa Mark ink, then heat embossed it with fine detail gold embossing powder.

17 0310 001 copy

My white card base was stamped repeatedly with flowers from the Blossom Stamp Set. This provided me the light and airy background I was looking for! The year was stamped and heat embossed next. My butterfly was added with foam tape to lift it from the flowers just a bit. A sprinkling of heart confetti sends a little love to the recipient.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Design It Monday ~ Simple Shamrocks!

Good day friends! I’m back with another installment of Design It Monday. Today I’m sharing some simple shamrocks with you on a St. Patrick’s Day card.

thumbnail_17 0226 003 copy

I’ve used the little heart from the Coffee Love Stamp Set to create my shamrocks. I stamped the heart three times then fussy cut them. There are several sets in the PRS shop with heart images. Imagine the variety of shamrocks you could make!

17 0226 002 copy

The month, day and date from the Date Stamp Set were stamped repeatedly on white cardstock then die cut. The small jar from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set was stamped onto white cardstock and vellum then fussy cut. I added some of my shamrocks “inside” the jar then layered the vellum panel on top of them. Some gold twine and sprinkling of metallic gold sequins added just the right amount of sparkle to the green and white color combo.

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!

17 0205 004 copy

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.

17 0205 005copy copy

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.

17 0205 003 copy

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
