{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!

DIY Valentine’s Day Decoration / Banner + Video!

Welcome stampers! It’s great to be back again sharing another project idea for you – Valentine’s Day edition!:) You can pretty much make these banners in any theme, but since Valentines is just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to get inspired & create!:)

These are mini banners, I have quite a lot of scrap paper from my 6×6 paper pads, each banner measures approximately 2 “x 3”- cute!

(STAMP SETS: Love Coupon , Happy Art , Sweet Pea , This Moment , Thanks, School Days)

Now if you have some scraps – simply create some of these. I created a fish tail on each banner to add a little something since I didn’t add any embellishments except stamps.

I used 3 colors of inks – red, pink, & black. That will give us not only a Valentine inspired colors but it makes our banner look coordinated.

Most of the stamps that I used are not Valentine theme stamp set – always think outside the box –   versatile stamps is so much fun to work with, it goes a long way as far as creating different projects.

Lastly , I punched some holes to add my string. Now, you can easily add it to your Valentines decor, or how about to your Valentines gift bag? That’s pretty much what I would do!:)

So glad you stop by today!

Thanks again for joining & happy stamping!:)

Tuesday Ideas: School Themed Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more inspiration for Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I’m sharing a school themed Christmas card which uses two stamp sets from the Precious Remembrance Shop store:  School Days and Oh Christmas.  This time of year, school children often take a little something to school for their teachers and this clean and simple card is just perfect for the occasion!

2016-dec6-space

I had so much fun making this card!  I found some fun, plaid washi tape recently and adhered it to the bottom of the card .  The “MERRY” and “Christmas” are both partial sentiments from the Oh Christmas set.  I inked up selective portions and stamped them.  I fussy cut the letters in “MERRY” and drew little red polka dots on them to add a little festive element.  I arranged them randomly to make them come alive and popped each one up with foam dots for dimension.  The school bus was stamped in black ink also and left uncolored to keep the overall design simple.  I can see this going to a bus driver!  They need a little of our gratitude too!

I hope you’re making progress in your holiday card making!  Isn’t it crazy just how quickly time goes by this time of year?  With clean and simple designs, you can get your cards made and in the mail on time!  I hope this inspires you somehow as you are putting things together this holiday season!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{Inspire Me Friday} Thanks, You Are Awesome!

Hello, everyone!  Happy Friday!  It’s Judy here, and it’s time for my final project using the latest stamp set, Happy Art.  I do hope you have it in your stash now and have been playing with it often!

I made another one-layer card by combining stamps from two Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets.  The sentiments are both from the School Days set, while all other elements are from the Happy Art set.

I stamped the solid circle in Soft Wheat ink, then the scribble design using Wet Cement ink.  The blue distress ink splatters frame the “thanks” sentiment stamped in Latte chalk ink. (I stamped it twice so it would be dark.)  I repeatedly stamped “You are awesome!” using the same blue distress ink, and the triangles in Soft Wheat.  (And the sequins?  Of course they are from the Sweet Pea Sequin Mix designed by my team mate Lisa!)

Saturday Creations ~ {SPOOKY}

Today I have a Spooktacular card using the new Precious Remembrance School Days Stamp set along with the Precious Remembrance Beware Stamp Set.

It may be a little scary for young kids but would be great for older trick or treaters:

I cut out the windows in the school bus and added two images to create a SPOOKY bus ride for sure!  The word SPOOKY is great for the license plate and is another image from the Beware Stamp Set.  The googlie eyes make the bus seem alive and the black moon with the bats adds to the terror!

Up close, you can see that this is no ordinary little girl!

The background was created with a variety of sprays, paints, splats, and watercolor pencils.

I hope you like this twist on the School Days theme!  Happy Halloween!

Project Thursday – Spooky Bus Ride…

 

Well, it’s Thursday and time for one final Project Thursday post showcasing the School Days set.

I combined the School Days Set with last year’s Halloween set – Beware.

I thought these die cut ghosts would look perfect with the school bus to make a CAS Halloween card.  I stamped and cut the bus adding 6mm sequins for the headlights.

So, that’s a wrap for this set and Project Thursdays – but stay tuned…..a new holiday set is releasing soon!

Tuesday Ideas: A Beautiful Ride

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa returning with another Tuesday Ideas post!  Today, I’m highlighting the School Days stamp set one last time!

I had this idea come to me as I was looking through my stash of Precious Remembrance Shop stamps & saw the sentiment (New Day set)!  I went searching for the perfect paper to use for paper piecing!  Isn’t it great how the school bus in this set can quickly become any kind of bus you’d like it to be?!  I have so much patterned paper that this bus can take on whatever paint job it wants for months!  I used Stampendous Dots for the headlights this time as they are flat and shimmery pink in color.  I popped up the finished bus with foam dots to add a little dimension.

I hope autumn is treating you well!  Cooler days usually mean more time to stamp, right?!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{Inspire Me Friday} Spooky Journey

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to my next installment of  {Inspire Me Friday} using the “School Days” set! 

With Halloween quickly approaching, I decided to stretch my stamp set and make a Halloween card.  I stamped the bus on a Halloween-themed patterned paper with spiders on it, being sure to let the big spider show through the bus window!  I added some gray shading in the windows using a Copic marker. Unfortunately the word “School Bus” didn’t come out clearly when stamped on the slightly textured paper, so I drew grid lines over it to make the bus look a little scary.  (Sometimes a stamper has to improvise, right?)

The sky and the roads were also made with Halloween-themed patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the “Journey” stamp set as the finishing touch.

I can just imagine little ghouls and goblins going to school on this bus!  I mean, they have to go to school, too, right? 

I fussy cut the bus and popped it up with foam tape for some dimension; I also added Glossy Accents to the bus lights for some shine.

I hope you enjoyed my card…thank you so much for stopping by today!
