Create It Wednesday ~ {Sketchy Love Spinner Card}

Today’s Create It Wednesday project is one that I’ve been dying to make…a spinner card! The letters from the {Sketchy Alphabet} Stamp Set were perfect for making my sentiment the star attraction of the card.

This was easier than I expected it to be. I stamped “I [heart] U” twice and die cut them so that I would have a front and back to my spinner. The hearts all come from the {Positive Thoughts} stamp set; for the trio of hearts, I did some masking and coloring so they would be solid black. I sandwiched my string between the two pieces and glued it into place with a strong adhesive.

I created the frame and and card front using the same nesting dies and assembled the card by layering my pieces onto the card in this order: plenty of adhesive, string and spinner stretched across the window, tan & white striped cardstock, then red and pink border. It’s really important to get the order right…ask me how I know 🙂

Hopefully, you’ll give the spinner card a try and find awesome sentiments using the {Sketchy Alphabet} stamp set letters to catch somebody special’s attention! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome hump day!

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!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Hello, Friend

Hello, everyone, and welcome to my first {Inspire Me Friday} post featuring the new release stamp set, Sketchy Alphabet!

I was inspired to play with various colors based on the patterned paper I used on my card base.  The nice thing about this alphabet set is the ability to color the letters any color you want!  I used colored pencils to match the various stripes on my card base.

5-19-17 PRS Sketchy Alphabet Project 1 IMG_4936

Using my Mini Misti, I lined up the letters to spell “friend,” and then added the “hello” on top from the Positive Thoughts set.  I added color to the letters using colored pencils. The layered flower mimics the colors in the paper and in my letters.

I hope you are enjoying the Sketchy Alphabet set and how versatile it is for cards and other projects!  If you have projects to share using Precious Remembrance Shop stamps on Instagaram or Facebook, be sure to add #preciousremembrancestamps so we can check them out!

AEI{heart}U! by: Rosemary Dennis

Hi everyone!!  Rosemary here for my first guest designer post on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog and I’m super excited to be here!!  Thanks so much to Dyane for asking me to be a guest designer!!  Have you seen the newly released Sketchy Alphabet stamp set??? It is super cute and very versatile!
For my card today I decided to use it in a way that is a little bit more elegant and created a card that would be perfect for an anniversary or a just because type of card.  I started by stamping all the letters in the alphabet on white cardstock using a light gray ink. I used my mini MISTI to do this to get a somewhat straight alignment of all the letters.  Once that was done I die cut the panel down with a rectangle die.  I then arranged the A, E, I, the heart from the Positive Thoughts set and the U on my MISTI and then stamped everything on vellum using VersaMark watermark ink.  Copper embossing powder was applied and heat set.  The strip was trimmed down and adhered to my main panel with rolled up glue dots.  I added some sequins that I had that are a pale copper color.  A piece of copper foil cardstock was die cut using the same rectangle die and then both pieces were adhered at angles to my light gray cardstock base.
Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed my project!

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!

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.

Mixed media postcard

(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!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

000_4709

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:

000_4715

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:
