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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

Design It Monday ~ {Thank you!}

Hello stampers! The fun continues here this week as the design team shares Christmas thank you projects.

16-1210-002-copy

This card began with a sentiment image from the Holiday Wishes Stamp Set. I trimmed out the rectangle box then added a tag stamped with a thank you sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set. I heat embossed the sentiment in Liquid Platinum to coordinate with the glittered stars on the background paper. Two fussy cut pine trees from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set were adhered to the back of the rectangle. A large vellum snowflake was added to the card along with the stamped images.

This card was easy to make and could be quickly mass produced. The time to fussy cut the trees was minimal. Stamp, stamp, snip snip, glue glue ~ viola!!

Design it Monday ~ {Revisiting old friends!}

Hi there! We have something fun planned for the next two weeks. The design team will be revisiting previously released stamp sets and pairing them with Christmas sets! I’m sharing the Journey Stamp Set with you today.

16-1203-001-copy

The camera in this set is perfect for paper piecing! The ‘lens’ of the camera was stamped again then punched out and added with foam tape. A coat of Wink of Stella was added to the outer circle. Pine branches from the Oh Christmas Stamp Set were stamped on coordinating patterned paper. The star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set where stamped over the pine with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment comes from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set.

While I had the patterned paper and stamps out, I decided to make another card!

16-1204-001-copy-2

I layered several die cut pieces together onto a white card base. The card was dry embossed with a pine branch embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment (Journey Stamp Set) with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed out the square then added it to the card. A few pine branches (Oh Christmas Stamp Set) were stamped and fussy cut, then tucked in among the layers.

I hope you enjoyed these! It’s so easy to mix and match all of the PRS sets. Stop by tomorrow for a project by design team member Melissa!

Design It Monday ~ {Which Came First?}

Hello stampers! Lisa here today with one more Design It Monday post featuring the Oh Christmas stamp set.

project_20160911_0007-copy

I’ve often been asked if I choose the stamps or the papers first when creating my cards. Kind of like the chicken and the egg question…which came first! In this case it was this particular sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. I knew I wanted it to be the focal point, so I kept the other elements simple. I stamped the image on a ledger paper then die cut it along with some red glitter paper to back it with.

project_20160911_0008-copy

I chose a traditional plaid paper then adhered it to the white card base followed with the sentiment label. To dress it up just a tad, I added some fussy cut pine sprigs and die cut mittens stamped with that same pine. I also used a hole punch on some of the red glitter paper scraps for glittery dot accents.

project_20160911_0006-copyMy matching tag was die cut with the same label using the ledger and glitter papers. This sentiment comes from the Sketchy Christmas stamp set. More stamped pine accents were used here.

project_20160911_0003-copy

So just which did come first, the chicken or the egg!!

Design It Monday ~ {Simple Pine!}

Hello and welcome! Have you been enjoying all of the wonderful projects the design team has been sharing using the new Oh Christmas Stamp Set? I sure have!! Today I’m bringing you another coordinating card and tag set using those very stamps.

project_20160911_0013-copy

Not only is the large sentiment in this set incredible, but that little simple pine sprig is just perfect! I created a wreath with it using a die cut stitched circle as my guide. It was stamped several times with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The die cut was inlaid on a white panel with the sentiment stamped below it. I added clusters of pearls as berries and a small patterned bow to adorn the wreath.

project_20160911_0011-copy

My coordinating tag uses the simple pine sprig once again. I stamped each sprig a second time without re-inking to soften the edges just a bit. This one is adorned with embossed stars along with the pearl berries and bow.

project_20160911_0009-copy

A simple pine wreath is a traditional Christmas item. I’ve kicked it up a notch and modernized it with the teal and platinum color combo! Thanks for visiting us today!

Design It Monday ~ {Let it snow!}

Hello, Lisa here today! I’ve had so much fun creating with the new Oh Christmas Stamp Set. As I mentioned in my last Design It Monday post, I will be sharing cards and matching tags for all of my posts! First up, the card.

project_20160911_0019-copy

I pulled colors from the patterned paper (Crate Paper) for my focal panel. The stars were stamped in three colors. The lighter pink came from stamping the bright pink without re-inking. Coordinating twine and a jingle bell were the only accents needed!

project_20160911_0017-copy

For the matching tag, I used a die cut star. The top and bottom were masked off to stamp the stars. I added the star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set and a sentiment from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set that’s popped up with a thin strip of foam tape. Once again there are accents of coordinating twine and a jingle bell.

project_20160911_0015-copy

I like my traditional reds, greens and golds for Christmas. But once in a while it’s nice to mix things up a bit. Oh, and by the way…the sentiment ‘let it snow’. Nope, NOT ready for that yet!!

Design It Monday ~ {Bring on the sparkle!}

Hello! I’m back with a new Design It Monday post sharing two projects featuring the newly released Oh Christmas Stamp Set.

project_20160911_0026-copy

I’ve used this wonderful new sentiment on a tag as the focal for my card. Some vintage looking paper from Crate Paper provided the perfect background. I love to bring on the sparkle with my Christmas designs! This one has vintage tinsel, glittery scallops, and glamorous rhinestones!

project_20160911_0024-copy

I played follow the “sparkle” leader with the tag! In addition to the tinsel and rhinestones, I used a generous amount of Wink of Stella on the stamped images. I love that the letters on both of these sentiments are open so that you can color them in. I used a water brush and ink to give the word ‘merry’ a similar coloring to the patterned paper and felt holly leaves.

project_20160911_0021-copy

I love the way these turned out! In fact, I’ll be sharing a Christmas card and matching tag for several more Design It Monday posts ~ yay!! Until next time…

Design It Monday ~ {Totally Masked!}

Hi there! Lisa here today with one more card featuring the Totally Stamp Set. I’ve combined it with some other PRS images to create a masculine card.

Project_20160806_0005

This card measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. I stamped the ticket from the Love Coupon Stamp Set onto a Post-it note to create a mask. Then I stamped it three times onto a white panel. Next came one of the border images from the Totally Stamp Set. I used a Post-it note to mask off the edges of the tickets. Those tiny arrows in the opposing corners are also from  Love Coupon Set.

Project_20160806_0006

‘Monday’ and ‘Memories’ (This Moment Stamp Set) where stamped with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I colored the tickets with Tombow Brush Markers and added a few silver stars. Even guys like a little bling!

I went totally masked crazy on this one, hope you like it!!
