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!

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!

Let it Snow Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Sunday stampers! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the “Oh Christmas Stamp Set” and “Sketchy Christmas” stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop. I took these photos of Edward in January. He was so excited that we finally got a little snow… he was even dabbing in the snow. Silly kid.

DSC_6380

To begin, I sprayed three different Coloration Sprays from Art Anthology (Juicy, Salmon, and Raider) onto white cardstock.

I matted three 2″x2″ photos on patterned paper and placed them on the layout to determine a design I was happy with. Once I had the placement of the photos finalized, I stamped the trees to frame the photos and added lots of pretty embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio.

 

 

 

I really like the font of this stamp. Isn’t it pretty!

 

I did not include any journaling since most of the embellishments used, included sentiments. 🙂

 

Thanks so much for visiting today! Come check out my video to see how this layout came together!

Create It Wednesday~Time for Tags

You’ve probably noticed there is a lot of tag making in blogland right now.  I joined in the craze using 3 Precious Remembrance Stamp sets:  Everyday, Happy Mail and Oh Christmas.
PRS DT Tag Much Better sharperThe sketchy circle from Everyday was white embossed on the large die cut tag to make snowballs.  Team member Lisa came up with that idea and I love it!   Distress Oxide Faded Jeans was used for the emboss resist technique and tiny white dots were added with a pen.   I stamped a branch from Oh Christmas at the top and bottom of a smaller tag using Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio.  The words from Happy Mail were stamped with Faded Jeans and I attached the small tag to the large one using foam tape.  Luckily, this piece of ribbon was just the right color and the dots tied in perfectly.  I thought a bit of sparkle was needed, so finished off with a glittery white dot.  Now I just have to buy the perfect gift!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US and I’ll see you next time.

Project Thursday ~ Mass Produce Thank You Cards For Winter

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Cards-HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here again today with mass-produce card ideas for this coming Winter / Christmas season.

Every month starting November 2018 until May 2019, I make 60 Thank You cards for donation at a Kids Camp programs. When comes to making a lot of cards or mass producing, I like to use clean-and-simple (CAS) style. I use these three CAS card designs for Winter camp which I made 20 cards for each design.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card1-HelenGullett

On this first one layer & CAS design, I used the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and the Fall Colors Stamp Set. I stamped the trees and dots with white archival ink pad to create the background. And then I stamped the sentiment from Everyday Stamp Set under the trees with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card2-HelenGullett

On this second CAS design, I use the Joy Stamp Set and Everyday Stamp Set. I stamped the wreaths with white archival ink pad to create the background, and then I stamped the Joy word inside one of the wreath with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous. For the sentiment, I stamped it on white cardstock with Memento Desert Sand ink pad, trimmed them into sentiment banner, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

PreciousRemembrance-MassProduce-Card3-HelenGullett

And for this third CAS card, I use the Oh Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped the evergreen leaf with white archival ink pad on the top of the card to create the background border. And I use the Everyday Stamp Set for the sentiment that I stamped it on white cardstock VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and trimmed it into sentiment banner. I wrapped the twine around the card, added the sentiment banner, and tied it up a bow. I added a little bit adhesive glue on the back of the sentiment banner to keep it stay on top of the twine.

These cards are done and ready for the kids at the camp to write thank you notes.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Inspire Me Friday – {let it snow!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Rosemary here with a new Inspire Me Friday post.   I’m sharing a card today that I made using the Everyday stamp set along with the fun Oh Christmas stamp set.  My card isn’t a Christmas card, but one that you could send out at any time during the winter season.

let it snow

I started with a A2 sized piece of white cardstock and stamped the background image from the Everyday stamp set that looks like a snow flurry across the top of the piece in watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  I then pulled out my Distress Oxide inks and lightly inked up the top of the panel where the embossing is with Broken China distress oxide ink and fading it out toward the middle of the card.   I placed my panel in my stamping tool and then using a scalloped rectangle die as a guide I placed the sentiment from Oh Christmas on the panel.  I removed the die and then stamped the sentiment in VersaFine CLAIR Morning Mist ink.  The panel was then die cut with the scalloped rectangle die.    I set aside the die cut rectangle and then adhered the panel to a white cardstock base.  The rectangle was then adhered using foam dimensionals.  I finished with some white baker’s twine tied in a bow.    I really like the way the stamped image looks like a flurry of snow!

Create It Wednesday~Christmas Cards

Once again it’s time to ramp up holiday crafting, so I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  PRS DT Nov both no wmI used three PRS sets including Everyday Stamp Set, Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set.  The A2 size card was done by stamping the large background image from Everyday Stamp Set using Distress Ink faded jeans on a watercolor panel.  PRS DT Nov first no wmThen I spritzed with water & let the ink spread on it’s own.  When it was dry I stamped a Sketchy Christmas tree in Distress Oxide lucky clover and Merry Christmas in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  A stitched rectangle was dry embossed for a frame and I popped up the Happy New Year sentiment strip.  To finish things off, I added silver confetti to match the silver mat.  Sometimes it’s fun to make a smaller card, like my second one which is 3 1/2 x 4  3/4.  PRS DT Nov second no wmAgain I stamped the background image from Everyday Stamp Set.  This time I used pumice stone Distress Ink & blended with a wet brush.  Kind of looks like mountains–perfect for a modern, rustic design.  I stamped the triangle tree from Sketchy Christmas three times in lucky clover Distress Oxide and the word Joy from the Joy Stamp Set in Distress Oxide candied apple.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added a couple extra layers of cardstock for dimension.  I sponged the pumice stone ink on the card front before adding the panel.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your holiday cardmaking.  See you next time.

Design It Monday ~ {Let it Snow!}

Hello and welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I was in the mood to create something other than a card for you, so how about a festive holiday banner. Let’s take a look, shall we.

I created three separate banner tags using chipboard pieces. They were each covered with vintage cream paper. Next, I distressed the edges with a warm brown ink then randomly stamped the paint swipes and splatters image (Everyday Stamp Set) using an aqua ink. After adding the patterned paper I topped each tag with the fussy cut  ‘let it snow’ sentiment (Oh Christmas Stamp Set). To connect the tags I used a coordinating twine. The spaces in between were filled with a trio of circle images from the Everyday Stamp Set. I suppose you could think of these as snowballs! A few rhinestones and Wink of Stella went on for that added holiday sparkle!
