Saturday Creations ~ {Wooden Gift Tag}

Hello Again and welcome back to another Saturday Creations!  Today I collaged a wooden tag with many layers to use on a birthday gift.

Here it is:

000_4873The tag is made of wood so it is a sturdy background.  I collaged paint, gesso, book paper and washi tape on the background.  The green is paint I smeared on with my finger and the black dots are actually part of a napkin!  The black around the edges is distress crayon.

I stamped the blossom from the PR Blossom Stamp set with black archival ink, clear heat embossed it,  and water colored the blossom.  It’s popped up and adds a lot of dimension to the tag.  Then I stamped the date from the PR Date Stamp Set and clear embossed it as well.  A little dyed seam binding ribbon, some lace at the bottom, and there you have it!  Secret – I loved this tag so much that I put MY birthday on it and it will be a gift to me!  LOL!

TIP:  Use water color paper because it is sturdy and can handle a lot of water and color and holds up well hanging off the side of the tag.

I hope this inspires you to purchase this new PR Date Stamp Set and create FAB projects of your own!

Saturday Creations ~ {Precious Remembrance Date Stamp Dinner Invitation}

Today I am sharing an invitation I made for a dinner party that has already happened!  As soon as I received this FABULOUS PR Date Stamp Set, I HAD to use it!  I couldn’t wait for the product release!  Let me tell you, my friends thought the invitations were so CUTE!  I hope you do, too!

000_4878I stamped the date block in black and the details in Aqua for a contrasting color that would match the background paper.  The random stripes were made using a line stamp from the Precious Remembrance Stamp Set Coffee Love.  I’m also really happy the sentiment “save the date” is in this set because it opens up all kinds of possibilities to use this Date Stamp Set!

Here’s a close up of the silverware I stenciled with graphite paste.  It’s really coarse and textural and makes a cool dinner invitation:

000_4879This Date Stamp Set is a MUST HAVE!

I hope you like my creation!

Saturday Creations ~ {THX}

I don’t know about you guys but there doesn’t even seem to be enough time to breathe this holiday season so I wanted to create a Christmas Thank You card that was quick and easy to mass produce.  I used the PR Oh Christmas Stamp Set and a piece of paper that was laying on my desk leftover from a 6×6 paper pad.

oh-christmas-500x500Since this card is going to a younger adult, I decided to use text speak so they would get the message.

Here’s my card:

pr-thx1I used the pine boughs from the stamp set – cool, huh?!

I added some white sequins for bling, polka dot paper, and non-traditional colors.  Here’s a closer view:

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and don’t forget to send THX cards!

Saturday Creations ~ {Using Three PR Stamps Sets to Say Merry Christmas!}

It’s almost Christmas and today I am showing you how well all of the Precious Remembrance stamps sets work together to make one special card.  I showcased the sentiment from the PR Oh Christmas Stamp set and paired it with the PR Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and for a twist, I used the jar from the PR Oh So Fun Stamp Set!  I hope you like the result:

Here’s a close up:

Tip – Don’t be afraid to mix and match, even if this leads to an unexpected twist!  But in order to do this, you MUST have more than one of the FABULOUS PR stamp sets.  Head on over to the Precious Remembrance Shop and start shopping.  These stamp sets make Wonderful gifts!

Saturday Creations ~ {Merry & Bright}

Hello Everyone!  I have one more card to post for Saturday Creations using this FABULOUS Precious Remembrance Stamp Set Oh Christmas!

I combined two of the sentiments and made them the focal point of my card.  I stamped them in Evergreen ink and used clear embossing powder.

Then I stamped the boughs to make garland around the sentiment.  They are clear embossed, too!

Saturday Creations ~ {Merry Christmas}

Welcome to Saturday Creations where I have masked several of the stamps from our PR Oh Christmas Stamp set to create my sentiment:

000_4864

I decided to go with the non-traditional colors of pink and green just to mix it up a bit.  I used oil pastels to watercolor the background and stamped a wreath from the PR Joy Stamp set with Versamark and embossed it with leaf green embossing powder:

000_4865Some twine and pink mini pearls were the perfect compliment.

The word Merry was heat embossed and then colored in with a pink marker.000_4866Can you see how I masked the sentiments to make it work?

TIP – Use a marker to add ink to one word – in this case Christmas – to get a good crisp image.

I hope you like my card!

Saturday Creations ~ {Oh Christmas Stamp Set}

I am in LOVE with this sentiment in our Precious Remembrance Oh Christmas Stamp Set and have used it for the focal point of my card:

pr-christmas1Doesn’t it look so pretty on this Christmas patterned paper? I colored the teeny tiny heart in the sentiment red to match the other red details on my card.

And to top it all off, the sentiment fits perfectly in this frame I used to make a shaker!

pr-christmasThe stitched lines in the date add an interesting detail don’t you think?

This PR Oh Christmas Stamp Set is a Must Have to make your Christmas cards!

Thanks for stopping by for my Saturday Creation!

Saturday Creations ~ {let it snow}

What does a Florida girl like me know about snow?  What I DO know is that the FABULOUS new Precious Remembrance stamp set Oh Christmas inspired me to create this snowy tag and card for some lucky friend at Christmas!

First up is my tag:

000_4825First I stamped the words let it snow three times on the tag with Versamark and white embossing powder.  I wanted to make a resist so when I added the four colors of distress ink, the words would still stand out.  I also added some paper squares in three sizes from large at the top of the tag to small at the bottom.  They were left over pieces from a die cut that I knew I would find a use for.  They add dimension and unexpected texture to my tag.   I also added glitter just to the squares.

000_4827

Then I spritzed the ink with water to make the streaky, drippy, pretty background.  The white dots of snow all over the tag are made from combining the dots from the Precious Remembrance Fall Colors Stamp Set on one stamping block, stamping with Versamark and embossing with white embossing powder.  To create the “snow” around the edge of my tag, I pressed the edges in Versamark and coated them in white embossing powder which I heat set.

And I just couldn’t stop there, I made a quick card with the same thought process:

000_4829But this time I used small iridescent snowflakes to make a flat Christmas card for mailing.  I stamped the sentiment the third time by masking the stamp.

I hope you like my snow inspired tag and card!  Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday Creations – {celebrate}

I had so much FUN creating with our PR Totally Stamp Set that I asked if I could make one more so here it is:

000_4771The background is three different colors of distress ink spritzed with water.  This is one of my FAV color combinations!

To make this card I used FOUR different Precious Remembrance stamp sets.  Can you guess which ones?

000_4773PR Totally Stamp Set for the brush stroke framing the panel (I only used half of the stamp to make the brush stroke thinner and heat embossed it in white), the PR Blossom Stamp Set for my FAV flower (I stamped in black and clear embossed, colored with distress inks, spritzed with water, and fussy cut the flower and stem out.  I ran a black marker around the cut edges of the flower so you wouldn’t see the white water color paper),  the PR Fall Colors Stamp Set for that FAB grid stamp (it always looks good to ground your flower so it doesn’t look like it’s floating in air), and the PR Oh So Fun Stamp Set for the word “celebrate.”

Seriously – how can you go wrong combining the Precious Remembrance stamp sets?!!!  Step outside the box and just create!

Hope you like it!

Saturday Creations ~ {You’re A Star}

Today’s Saturday Creation focuses on the stars in our Precious Remembrance Totally Stamp Set:

000_4804

The background is made with distress inks and then spritzed with water to create the perfect night sky.  There are some tiny gems ~ can you see them? ~ to give the appearance of stars in the galaxy.  This card is for someone who used to play professional baseball.  (To read more about him, go to my blog).

000_4768Tip – I don’t like my handwriting so I stamped “You’re______ ” and then masked the stamp that says “that’s all” just to get the “a” and then stamped another star in black to make the sentiment POP!  I framed it all with the brushstroke stamp. EVERYTHING I stamped was coated in clear embossing powder and then heat set to give it a shiny appearance.

I hope you like it!

Here’s the PR Totally Stamp Set ~ so versatile!
