For those of you who know me, I’m sure you’ve guessed who will receive this. Yes, our little Sweet P is finishing up her first year of preschool this week. Gramma and Papa are so proud of her! A gift card will find it’s way into her treat bag for some ice-cream outings this summer!

I created a festive banner (Oh So Fun) from stamped and fussy cut triangles. They’re glued onto the bag along with some rose gold twine. I curved the sentiment (Oh So Fun) on my acrylic block to follow the curve of the banner.

Masking helped me fill the jar (Oh So Fun) with pea pods and teeny hearts (Sweet Pea). I popped it onto the tag with foam tape. After composing the bow, I added a slip of vellum with Sweet P’s (Sweet Pea) name on it along with the happy little pea (Sweet Pea).

I love the way this turned out and I think she’ll enjoy her surprise!

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

Project Thursday ~ A Coffee Card and A Year In Review

Hello everyone, I hope you all have a fabulous holidays week! Can you believe that a year almost gone by? New year is coming in 4 more days! And it also means that is the end of my term with Precious Remembrance Shop. It has been an amazing year and for sure I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this amazing team, for Dyane, and for her generosity through out the year.

I have one more card to share with you all today. I created this card with the new Everyday Stamp Set and Coffee Love Stamp Set.

I stamped one of the artsy image from the Everyday Stamp Set with Versamark Ink Pad and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then, I added some red paint using Sakura Koi Water Colors on the background. The heat embossed image resist the watercolor paint.

I used smooshing technique and splatter technique to add more texture with the watercolor paint. I dried it, distress the edge of the paper, and added it on a white card with permanent adhesive.

I stamped the cup from the Coffee Love Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne Ink Pad on a white cardstock and then I fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on the cup with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and I added the cup on the card with 3D foam tape.

For the other sentiments, they are from Everyday Stamp Set that I stamped with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous, trimmed it into sentiment stripes, and then I added them on the cup with 3D foam tape.

And… before you all go… Here are my Top 5 favorite cards that I created with Precious Remembrance Shop in this year of 2018:

Hello everyone… The “Getting Artsy Week” is continue! Helen is here today and I have an artsy, fun birthday gift bag and tag to share with you all for this Project Thursday.

I use the Plain – White / Flat Paper Bag for the gift bag. I inserted a stamping pad that I made out of fun foam inside the bag for easy stamping. And then, I stamped it with the artsy images from the Everyday Stamp SetHappy Art Stamp Set, and New Day Stamp Set.

I stamped each image in different colors using the VersaFine Clair – CheerfulVersaFine Clair – SummertimeVersaFine Clair – Green Oasis, and VersaFine Clair – Warm Breeze.

Next is creating the gift tag. First, I created the 2 ombre color backgrounds with monoprint technique using acrylic paints and gelli plate. I pulled the print using heavyweight cardstock.

I stamped one of the jars from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set on the green/blue ombre print with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne and then I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Everyday Stamp Set on the orange/yellow print using the  VersaFine Clair – Nocturne. I cut it into sentiment banner and punch a tag hole on it.

I wrapped twine around the jar and then I added the tag and one of the Light Mint Buttons. I use one of the mini wooden clothes pin to add the tag on the gift bag.

I hope this project give you idea how to celebrate someone’s special day in artsy kindda way. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Artsy & Fun Birthday Card

Hope you’re enjoying our artsy celebration week on the blog.  I decided to make a funky birthday card using these three PRS Stamp Sets:  EverydayOh So Fun and Fall Colors.  You may not see a flower image in these sets, but that didn’t stop me from making one for my card!  PRS DT 3 sets for flower

I began with the Everyday stamp set where I saw the circle as a bloom, one of the lines as a stem and the triangle as leaves.  The bloom was a little too small, so I used one of the solid triangles in the Oh So Fun set to give it more substance.  Must admit, it was fun to step outside my comfort zone to be a little artsy!  I used Distress Oxides abandoned coral, cracked pistachio and wilted violet along with a white pen for dots in the flower center.

PRS Flower Third Try Brighter Only

I layered 6 scalloped frame die cuts using gray cardstock for the top layer.  The sentiment from Oh So Fun was stamped in a dark gray ink.  I love the splatter images in the Fall Colors Stamp Set and used one for my card.  So glad you stopped by and hope you’ll check out the DT projects each day this week.  See you next time.

Tuesday Ideas {Celebrate your day!}

Hello! It’s Kelly here today sharing a bright, citrus-y, summer design with you! There’s something so fresh & cheery about green, orange, and yellow, don’t you think?

To begin my card, I stamped the polka dot strip image from the Little Things stamp set in green, orange, and yellow. I used my MISTI stamping tool to get the stamp properly aligned and it helps me get a nice saturated image. I left just enough room between each color so that I could stamp the long sentiment from the Oh So Fun stamp set in black ink.

The jar and the sentiments inside are all stamped in black as well and are from the Oh So Fun set as well. I used a ribbon spool and lightly traced around it so that I could get a curved shape to create the banner in the upper right hand corner. The little triangle shapes inside the jar and the banner pieces are also from the Oh So Fun set.

I also added half of a Mini Yellow Doilie using some glue. I just love the extra detail it gives the card. I also used a few of the little splatter images from the Fall Colors set. I thought it made the card look a little juicy! LOL! I also added a few Nuvo drops to the banner and a few of the splatters for extra detail. The “LOL” circle is also from the Little Things stamp set and is stamped in black. Thanks for joining me today! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Celebrate Card : Like Confetti & Fireworks!

Happy Sunday everyone!:) Dyane here, and today I have a card for you that’s perfect for the upcoming holiday – July 4th!

Aside from mix & matching stamp sets, stretching your stamps is something I just LOVE when it comes on making projects. Versatile stamps that can work whole year round & in any occasion.

That’s what I did on this project!

This is a one layer card, and keeping it plain white for my card base. I focused on 3 colors of inks – red, blue, & black.

First, I stamped my polka dots border from the Little Things stamp set. Love that border , just perfect in any projects!

Now the fun collage stamping will start!:) Woohoo!:)

I started stamping the wavy lines followed by the arrows from the Happy Mail Stamp Set. Making sure that everything are well balanced.

After that, I stamped the 3 big stars from the Totally stamp set.

It doesn’t stop there because we are still gonna’ make it more fun like fireworks!:)

I stamped my “Celebrate” sentiment from the Oh So Fun stamp set.

Now my favorite part is here!:)

Adding tons & tons of stars like a confetti! Yay!

It’s quick & easy using the stars from the Daily Thoughts stamp Set .

To complete my confetti, I have to add a final touch using the dotted splatters from Fall Colors stamp set.:)

Oh how I enjoyed making this card! I hope you like it too!:)

Remember: You can always change the sentiment like “thank you”. Or using the same layout , you can change the entire color palette and make a card for another occasion. The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for joining me today & Happy Stamping!

Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett

Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp Set, Oh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_01

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_02

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_03

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {Celebrate…it’s your day!}

Hello friends, it’s Kelly here to share a fun birthday card I’ve been working on using the Oh So Fun stamp set as well as the ever-useful Sketchy Alphabet! I love how playful and fun they look on today’s card! I stamped the letters onto some pattern paper and then added some Crystal Glaze to give them the look of epoxy stickers you can buy. That is why I love stamps so much, because you can make as many as you want and you never run out! You always have the letter you need!

The jar image is stamped onto both the pink paper and then again onto the alphabet/number pattern paper and then fussy cut. I added it on top of the pink panel using foam squares. I combined a few of the included sentiments onto a coordinating strip of pattern paper. I added some Rose Quartz buttons on either side for some added detail.

I added another one of the included sentiments at the top of the card base as well as the cute little banner/triangle images. I did some straight machine stitching at the top as well using gray thread. I love how bright and cheery this birthday card came out! Thanks for stopping by today!

Design It Monday ~ {Bloom in Happiness!}

Hi there! I am so ready for spring, how about you? It’s officially here according to the calendar. But Mother Nature has been playing tricks on too many of us! So how about a little spring in the form of a card today.

Project_20180318_0004 copy

The design team has been given the task of creating words with the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set. As you can see, I’ve stamped the word bloom. Coordinating patterned papers were added to an aqua card base. They’re topped with a trio of  flowers from the Blossom stamp set that have been tucked into the small jar from the Oh So Fun stamp set. I did some masking on the stems so they would extend into the jar further. The blooms are colored with Copics and Wink of Stella was added to just the inner petals. Thick foam dots gave them tons of dimension! The other portion of the sentiment comes from the Blossom stamp set.

My PaperTales

True happiness blooms from within. For me, card making makes that happiness continue to grow and bloom. Through the years those blooms have turned into a garden full of card making blogging friends! Have a delightful day and thanks for stopping by!
