Stamped Backgrounds // Guest Designer Erica Thompson

Hey everyone I am back with another guest designer post using some fabulous Precious Remembrance Stamps! Today I will be using the Happy Art, Positive Thoughts and New Day Stamp Sets! I had so much fun with these stamps and created 3 fun cards to share with you today!
The first stamp set is the Happy Art stamp set

I started by spraying some of my Shimmerz paint onto my non stick mat and using my favorite stamp in the Happy Art stamp set and stamped it out on a white piece of cardstock that I will be using for my card front. Once I stamped it out in two different colors I added some splatters some black threads and then a few layers of pattern paper!

So fun and super quick to create some great cards!

I used this sticker from Bella Blvd. as my sentiment! Here is a look at the final card!
My next card I used the New Day stamp set and used the three circles to create a background! I used Versafine Black ink to stamp the images!

Next I added some black threads and then some fun pattern papers in my favorite colors!

I love these papers from Bella Blvd. Addison collection! The colors are so fun and look awesome with the black polka dot stamped background! Here is a look at the final card!

The last card uses the Positive Thoughts stamp set! I used the solid heart to create a pattern on the lower part of the card front!

I used more paper from the Addison collection from Bella Blvd and a piece of ephemera from the die cut pack!

I stamped out the word Hello from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the ephemera piece and I think it looks adorable!

Here is a look at the final card!

Here are all three cards using the Precious Remembrance Stamps! I have had so much fun being guest designer! I hope have enjoyed my projects this month! Remember to stop by the Precious Remembrance shop to pick up these fabulous stamps and also their Facebook page! Have a great day!

{Inspire Me Friday} 18th Birthday Card

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday!  I’m here with my last project for the new release “Date” stamp set and I hope you like it!

I stepped away from my planner this time around and made a birthday card for my son’s 18th birthday.  (How can my baby be turning 18?)  I combined several PRS stamp sets for his card, trying to keep it simple and masculine yet still festive and fun.

I die cut white card stock into a notebook page, then started combining stamps.  Several stamps from the “Positive Thoughts” set started it off, with sentiments from the “School Days” set added next.  I added my son’s age using the numbers in the “Date” set and highlighted his age using a arrow from the retired “Mom & Dad” set.

I popped up the white panel using foam tape onto a navy blue card base, then added the bow and mini clothespin for added interest.  I hope he likes it!

I also hope you have enjoyed all of the projects using the “Date” stamp set shared by our Design Team and Guest Designers over the past few weeks.  If you haven’t purchased yours already, go grab it at the PRS Shop!

Thanks for visiting today!

Create It Wednesday ~ Desktop Calendar

I’m wrapping up my Create It Wednesday posts using the new {Date Stamp Set} with some mixed media crafty goodness! I wanted to create a desktop monthly calendar for my craft room using this awesome newly released set. Here’s the finished product.
Mixed media postcard full2

I started by using some spray inks…lots of spray ink lol…and a mix of several graphic stamps from other PRS sets {Happy Art and Positive Thoughts}. I stamped them in archival ink and colored them in with some heavy body acrylic paint in similar colors.

(Yes, I did have an art oopsie and had to recreate the background…more time to play right??) Next I marked the calendar grid on some acetate and stamped the days and dates with StazOn ink (made to use on non-porous materials). To mute the background, so the numbers would pop out, I cut a piece of vellum and ran it through my sticker machine and adhered it to the card. I repeated the sticker making with the acetate calendar I made…you don’t even see the adhesive!

Mixed media postcard cu

I adhered a strip of plain white cardstock behind the days of the week then stuck it all on the “vellumed” background. I added a flag with the month and year and mounted my finished calendar with some removable adhesive to a media board for sturdiness.

I can’t wait to make one for every month of the year!! I hope you’ll give this a try. Thanks of joining me while I shared some ideas for using the new PRS {Date Stamp Set}.

{Inspire Me Friday} Birthday Planner Pages

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my first installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring the newest release Date stamp set.

When I received this stamp set, I knew it was time to take the plunge into making my own planner.  My 16-year-daughter started a “bullet journal” around the same time, so we have been giving each other ideas, searching Pinterest, and having a lot of fun together!

I decided to make a two-page spread in order to keep track of birthdays each month.  I started with March, and I had a great time pairing up the Date stamp set with a few other favorites from Precious Remembrance Shop (listed below).

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3007

I started out by stamping the heading box.  Next, I drew the lines with a fine tip Sharpie.  I stamped the month and the dates in green ink (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day).

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3008

Next, I drew two cascading pencil lines in order to create banners spanning both pages.  Once I stamped the mini flags (from the Oh So Fun stamp set), I drew a dashed line with my Sharpie, then erased the pencil.

2-17-17 PRS Date Project 1 IMG_3009

I used the splatters from the DIY stamp set across the bottom of both pages, then finished it off with the large circles and sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

Once I finished all of my stamping, I went back and filled in the family and friend birthdays for the month.  Here is how the finished project looks now:

I am still a “newbie” when it comes to planners, and I enjoy learning as I go.  I am having fun with this versatile new release Date stamp set, and it is so fun to mix and match all of my PRS stamps with it!

I’d love to see what you are making with this set…be sure to post your creations at Precious Remembrance Shop Instagram page using #preciousremembranceshop or #preciousremembrancestamps.  I know I would love to learn more ways to use this set in my planner!

Saturday Creations – {—hi—}

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card and two creations that could be framed and hung on a wall using our new PR Happy Art Stamp Set Here is my card ~ think flowers and hearts!


I used distress inks and brushed across the hearts with a water brush for the color bursts.  The flower is made with three of the stamps from this set, the large spot, the small splat and the scribble.  The stem is from the PR New Day Stamp set and the —hi— is from the PR Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.  What I LOVE about the Precious Remembrance stamp sets is that they all compliment each other ~ lots of hearts, lots of FAB fonts and universal sentiments!

So after I made my card I decided to make two pieces with the flower motif:

000_4714This time besides using the paint stroke for the flower stem I also used the sentiment from the PR New Day Stamp Set.  Because there were ink spots in the sentiment, I flicked black ink all over the page.  Then I decided to make an even brighter version:


The color around the edges is distress ink applied and moved around with a water brush.

I had so much FUN playing with the PR Happy Art Stamp Set!  You will, too!  Until next time:

{Inspire Me Friday} Hello

Happy Friday, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my first post using the newest release, Happy Art.  If you haven’t ordered your set yet, be sure to stop by the Precious Remembrance Shop store and get your hands on one today!

I decided to use the splatters and scribbles to make a colorful background for a white, dry-embossed die cut butterfly.  I first stamped the solid circle in Soft Vanilla shadow ink, then I layered the scribble image on top using Wet Cement dye ink.  The splatters were then stamped in various distress inks to add pops of color.

The “hello” sentiment from the Positive Thoughts stamp set was also stamped in Wet Cement ink in the top corner.

This would be an easy card to mass produce using a variety of colors and sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed my card…have a great day!

{Inspire Me Friday} Smile

Happy Friday, everyone!  It’s Judy and I’m here with my final card for the “Sweet Pea” stamp release.  I have had so much fun with this adorable set, I hope you have gotten your hands on it and have had a chance to play!

For my card today, I decided to make a background pattern on the card base using the largest sweet pea image, then filled in the open spaces with the tiny heart stamp.  I stamped the adorable smiling sweet pea image on white card stock and colored with colored pencils, adding Sakura jelly roll glitter pen to the hair.  The “smile” sentiment is from the “Positive Thoughts” set, and I stamped the lines under the sentiment using the same green ink as the card base stamping.  I layered the white circle onto a scalloped circle punched from green glitter paper.  I popped that up using foam tape onto my card base, and voila!  A colorful, quick card meant to brighten someone’s day!

Design It Monday ~ {A Bit of Christmas!}

Hi there friends! I hope those of you from America enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend! I’m here to officially begin my holiday season with a bit of Christmas. I remember being a child, looking at snow globes and all things Christmas captured in a glass jar or under a dome. As I held it in my little hands close to my face, it seemed it was a bit of Christmas captured for eternity.

With that memory I set out to “capture” one of the trees from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set in the large jar from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set. The card begins with a white card base layered with a vellum die cut panel and then the die cut patterned paper panel. The jar was stamped and trimmed out. Next came the tree in a light pink ink.

To create a garland on my tree, I used the stitched line from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. It was heat embossed with gold powder as was a second lid for the jar. The lid and the jar are both popped up. Small sequins decorate the tree along with a tiny glittered wooden star.

And there you have it, a bit of Christmas to hold onto for eternity! Thanks so much for visiting!

{Inspire Me Friday} Thanks, You are Awesome!

Hello, everyone!  I am so excited to be here today with my first post for {Inspire Me Friday} at the Precious Remembrance Shop!  I am absolutely in love with the new release stamp set, School Days, and I can’t wait to share the projects I made with this wonderful set.

While I adore the bus image in this set, I had a lot of fun playing the with the script “thanks” sentiment this time around!  I thought it would be neat to pair it with one of the smaller sentiments underneath.  I layered a few banners of school-themed patterned paper (from the DCWV “Grade School” stack) onto the card, finishing it off with a few clear gems and a stamped “stitch” from the Positive Thoughts set across the top of the card.

I like to give thank you notes to my kids’ teachers throughout the school year, so a card like this will definitely come in handy!  I’ll have to make a few more for my stash…and I’ll be sure to share them with you when I do.

Be sure to check out the School Days set at the Precious Remembrance Shop…it is one of my favorites!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Tuesday Ideas: Gold Blossom

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with one last clean & simple card idea for the new Blossom set!

This week, I used gold tinsel embossing powder on one of the blossoms in the set to give it a little sparkle and shine.  I used one of the circles in the New Day stamp set as a flower center, popping it up with a foam dot.  The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts set.  I used a stitched border die to dress things up a bit and added more dimension by popping up the entire main panel using foam dots.

This set has so many possibilities and I love that it works so well for clean and simple design!

Until next time, happy stamping!
