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.

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!

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.

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.

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!!
