Our Cue Word is – Balloon.

Here’s the card that I came up with.:) I always enjoy images that can be use in different ways. They say, always think outside the box. Well, since I don’t have “balloon” stamp, I made my own using circles!Yay! These circle images are from our Positive Thoughts stamp set – which is use mostly as a background, and the A+ circle is from our School Days stamp set & I used 1″ circle punch so I can layer it over the other circles!

To make the “string” of the balloon, I stamped it using the borders from the School Days stamp set, as well as the “you are awesome” sentiment. And the images inside the circles are stamped using the Coffee Love stamp set & Positive Thoughts stamp set.

To add more interest, I stamped the arrow border on the side of the card using the Journey Stamp Set.

I added another sentiment below the card to complete and make this card perfect for a celebration! I used the letters from our Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I tried my best to make it clean & simple. But you know, it’s kinda’ hard to stop when you’re having so much fun stamping.:) lol

I hope you enjoyed my project!:)

♥ Dyane

Saturday Creations ~ {Mini Album with Sketchy Alphabet Title}

I had so much FUN playing with the Precious Remembrance Sketchy Alphabet Set that I wanted to post one more project for you!  I used this FAB stamp set to make the title for my mini album of our vacation.  Here it is:

And here is a close up of the title:

000_5009TIP:  I used the line in this wood plank paper to line up my letters.  I stamped them one letter at a time to create the perfect spacing.  I colored the letters in with a water brush pen and an ink pad (ink from the inside of the lid).

It was a Wonderful trip and now I have a mini album with just the right font for my title.

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspire Me Friday ~ To Do Lists

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, sharing two bullet journal pages I made using the new Sketchy Alphabet set along with some other favorite stamp sets from Precious Remembrance Shop!

As soon as the school year comes to an end, I usually begin writing my summer “to do” lists.  I often write a new list each week, so this year I decided to make them a little more fun.  I bought a blank journal at the local craft store and thought it would be fun to combine my love of stamping with my love of list-writing!

Here is the first page I did, using the Sketchy Alphabet set to make my heading along with the Date stamp set.  I added some fun flowers from the Blossom set around the page border and the cute smiley face from the Coffee Love set.

For my next page, I decided to highlight my love of coffee using the Sketchy Alphabet set along with the Coffee Love set, one of my all-time favorites!  I colored all of my stamped images with colored pencils.

I have no doubt that I will be using my PRS stamps on future “to do” lists in my journal…and the Sketchy Alphabet set is perfect for personalizing my pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {HB2U Shaker Card}

I have had no shortage of exciting ideas for using the new {Sketchy Alphabet} Stamp set and today’s Create It Wednesday is my last chance to give you a little inspiration. If you love to text or can appreciate the millennial generation’s way of sending greetings, then you know a good HB2U (happy birthday to you…just in case you need a hip lingo refresher lol) makes a fab sentiment!

hb2u

How fun is a shaker card?! I die cut the balloons from the card front to fit my sentiment and used all kinds of fun confetti to sandwich between my acetate window and the base of the card front. I always use two layers of foam tap stacked on top of each other to leave enough room for my goodies to actually shake around. I stamped HB2U using the {Sketchy Alphabet} stamp set on some vellum. Hint- Staz-On ink is great for this and Copics work well on vellum to color in images, like I did here.

A cute blue bow and it’s all ready to share! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations using this new stamp set. If you’ve missed any of them, you can see them at the links below. Stay tuned for the talented Judy Marino’s wrap up on Friday! Thanks and go create 🙂

Design It Monday ~ {My Girl!}

I was sneaky in finding out what my son’s favorite photo is of his baby girl. I knew it would become a refrigerator magnet for him for Father’s Day.

After elongating a tag die cut, I added the Sketchy Alphabet letters to the top spelling out MY GIRL. A strip of die cut hearts stamped with a sentiment from the Love Coupon Stamp Set anchors the photo. That precious photo was dolled up with a wee strip of patterned paper, buttons, sequins and a ribbon tab.

When everything was complete the top seemed a little bare needing a pop of black. Another sentiment from the Love Coupon Stamp Set was the perfect fit!

His baby girl is now 2 1/2! She drew some squiggly lines on the back for daddy and I popped on two magnets. She was very excited to give it to him on Father’s Day! In case you didn’t know, this little one was the inspiration for my Sweet Pea Stamp Set! Everyone says “she sure is grandma’s girl”…they’re right she’s my girl!

Hooray!! by: Rosemary Dennis!

Hi everyone!! Rosemary here with my last guest post for Precious Remembrance Shop.  I have really enjoyed my time as a guest designer and want to give Dyane a big thanks for having me!!  My card today was created for my little niece Kaia.  She will be turning one and I thought the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set was the perfect way to personalize her card.
 
I started out by stamping the word hooray using aqua, coral pink and light green inks.  The exclamation point was stamped in gray.  I then die cut the piece with a scalloped rectangle die.  The balloons were created by using the circle heart stamp from the Coffee Love stamp set.  I stamped my “balloons” using the same three inks.  I die cut matching green cardstock as a mat for the main panel and a larger mat from coral pink cardstock.  I then layered everything up on the front as you see.
For the inside I simply stamped my sentiment as you see it using the same inks, die cut it and then matted it using some aqua cardstock.  I love how it turned out and can’t wait to send it off to little Kaia!
Hope you have enjoyed my posts these last two months!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Congrats, Grad!

Hello, everyone! It’s Judy here with my next {Inspire Me Friday} project using the new “Sketchy Alphabet” stamp set.

It is graduation season, and I am in need of several high school graduation cards this month.  With three teenagers of my own in high school, I find that they are invited to a lot of graduation parties as their older friends graduate.  Their high school color is green, so I used my “Sketchy Alphabet” set and added some green to the sentiment using colored pencils.

The lovely green sequins are from our very own Lisa Elton’s “Sweet Pea” mix, and the graduation cap is a sticker.  I love the texture it adds to my card!

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 ~ {Sweet P!}

Hi friends and welcome to another installment of Design it Monday! I have a personalized card for my little granddaughter featuring the Sketchy Alphabet set along with the Sweet Pea stamp set.

17 0611 001 copy

I began with some patterned paper, a paper doily and a die cute doily. These were added to a marshmallow card base topped with a champagne card stock panel. Next came the pretty little pea pod that was colored with Copics then highlighted with Wink of Stella. There are a few dew drops on the pea pod and surrounding area made from Glossy Accents. I stamped my letters and number then punched them out with a 3/4″ circle punch. They’re added to the card with foam squares. I did some selective inking on the Sweet Pea sentiment.

I added Wink of Stella on the number and letters too. After all, little girls do love sparkle! Who am I kidding, big girls love sparkle too!

I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. Thanks for visiting PRS today. Your comments always bring a smile to my face!
