Design It Monday ~ {Thanks}

As we count down the last days until Christmas, we don’t want to forget about those thank you cards! I put together this little number with some bits and pieces I had leftover. It all began with a polka dot tag.

After decideding on the placement of the tag, I stamped my sentiment (Thanks stamp set) three times. I had several pine pieces (Oh Christmas stamp set) stamped and fussy cut. I added them to some leftover snowflake die cuts then glued them to the polka dot tag.

My happy little sweet peas (Sweet Pea stamp set) with their sparkly hats became my snowflake centers and focal point. I added them with thick foam dots and love the way they look!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Design It Monday ~ {Merry Christmas}

Hi there! I’m back with another Christmas card for this week’s Design It Monday. Today’s card features the Sketchy Christmas stamp set.

Project_20191110_0005 copy

I started with the background. Using some paper from my stash, I randomly stamped one of the trees creating my own patterned paper. After adhering it to a cream card base, I added a coordinating panel of striped paper.

My focal image is the same tree, just jazzed up!

I used the scribbly image from the stamp set as a garland.

Isn’t it fun!

I coordinated my sentiment color with my textured layer.

Design It Monday ~ {Thankful for You}

Thankful, grateful, happy, delighted, pleased…just a few words to express how I feel about your love and support here on the PRS blog. I’ve created this card for all of you.

Project_20191112_0002 copy

I used the Fall Colors stamp set (one of my absolute favorites!) to create today’s card. All three leaf images were inked up and randomly stamped onto and ivory panel. I embossed some of the little splatters with Versa Mark ink and gold embossing powder. After die cutting the panel, it was added to a dry embossed card base.  The sentiment was also gold embossed then framed with the cute sketchy rectangle from the set.

See what I mean? Isn’t this a beautiful stamp set!

I would like to wish all of you from the US a Happy Thanksgiving!
To all of our other friends, I wish you happiness!

Design It Monday ~ (Sentiment Focal}

Hello friends, welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I have a quick and simple Christmas card for you today where I’ve made the sentiment my focal point. Take a look…

Project_20191110_0001 copy

I’ve used the large pretty sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. It was stamped with evergreen ink, then die cut with an older Spellbinders die. I added pine here and there around the edges. The same ink was used, but it was stamped off first to give a lighter appearance.

I added a panel of patterned paper to the card base before popping the die cut on. This went together quickly and is a perfect solution for mass production cards!

Thanks for stopping by, we love it when you do!

Design It Monday ~ {Beware}!

Hello! October is nearing it’s end and with that comes Halloween. Today, I’m sharing one more card featuring the Beware stamp set.

Project_20191020_0002 copy

I had the die cut banner on my desk, so I decided to begin there.

Those little Washi Pieces from the set were stamped first followed by the Beware sentiment.

Next came the polka dot borders serving as the dangle-y portion of the spider webs.

I stamped the web images then fussy cut them.

Project_20191020_0003 copy

After deciding where the banner would be placed, I stamped a trio of soft gray webs then adhered the banner. A little Halloween Washi tape and rhinestones were my finishing touches.

There’s still time to add the Beware set to your stamp collection ~ it’s only $6.99!

Design It Monday ~ {No tricks, just treats}!

Hey there! It’s Lisa here today sharing a fun idea for a quick and simple Halloween goodie bag. Why buy pre-made bags when you can jazz up one of our Plain-White or Plain-Kraft Flat Paper Bags from the shop.

Project_20190915_0001-2 copy

First up, I added a strip of Washi Tape to the bag. Next came the stamped star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. Using a circle die cut border, I stamped three images from the Beware Stamp Set set using a smokey gray ink.  I stamped and punched out two orange Jack-o-lanterns then added them to the strip with foam tape. The strip of circles begins and ends with a star from the Totally Stamp Set. No circle border die, no problem. Just use punches or die cut circles for the same look.

Project_20190915_0003 copy

I finished things off with two Trick or Treats sentiments (Beware Stamp Set) and some glossy bat stickers from my stash.

Add those treats and you’re good to go!

Design It Monday ~ {Eeeek, Spooky!}

September is flying by at lightening speed! That means Halloween is right around the corner. You still have time to pick up your Beware Stamp Set in plenty of time to get inky. There’s no time like the present, it’s on sale!  Here’s a little inspiration for you using that very set.

thumbnail_Project_20190827_0007 copy

Using the colors in the patterned paper as my jumping off point, I stamped three of the circle images. They’re punched out and two were added to the card with foam tape. Those yellow eyes on the PP make this just spooky enough!

There are oodles of fun images in this set with endless possibilities!

Our end of summer sales runs through September 30th.

Design It Monday ~ {Happy Halloween!}

I’m not quite ready to go full out autumn yet, but those days are fast approaching us. The bright beautiful September skies and cooling temperatures did give me a little nudge though. Here’s a not too spooky Halloween card for you in case you need one too!

Project_20190827_0005 copy

I pulled out my picket fence die again to give my smiling Jack-o-lantern (Beware stamp set) a resting place. He’s fussy cut to remove the outer sketchy lines. The fence also provided a perfect spot for the sentiment (Beware stamp set). While there are several layers on this card, the lines are clean keeping it from being too busy.

Beware_Stamps-600x600

This was quick and easy to create.

Why not give it a try. The Beware stamp set is on sale!

Design It Monday ~ {Thanks}

Hi friends! Lisa back today with another installment of Design It Monday. I have a bright and happy thank you card. Check it out…

Project_20190825_0003 copy

I started with a scrap of white card stock and the thanks image from the School Days stamp set.  After stamping the image in a bright and happy green, I trimmed it down and die cut one edge. I added this to my card base stamped with an image from the previously released Blossom stamp set. I stamped the blooms with Versa Mark ink then clear embossed them. Layered die cut hearts and sweet wooden apple buttons I bought on Etsy finish things off.

Design It Monday ~ I Love School!

Oh the wheels on the bus go round and round! Yep, it’s that time of year again. And what perfect timing. The School Days stamp set is on sale! Take a look at what I have to share using it…

Project_20190811_0002 copy

After stamping the bus and colorng it with Copics, I die cut it then added it to the polka dot embossed panel with foam tape. I repeated the scallops from the red heart on the edge of the sentiment strip.

Project_20190811_0001 copy

The bus received some snazzy rhinestone headlights!

Project_20190811_0003 copy

I layered three tags together to bring a handful of pencils to life.

Project_20190811_0006 copy

This would be a sweet combo to have ready for one of the kiddos on their first day back, the bus driver, a teacher, crossing guard. Heck, I bet even the lunch lady would appreciate it! Now hurry on over to the shop to put the School Days set in your cart. While you’re there, have a look around. There are several sets on sale!
