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!

Saturday Creations – {HB2U}

I’m back with another card using the PR Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  I LOVE this font and think it looks great when you combine 4 letters or numbers to make a bold sentiment.  This is a birthday card for a dear friend of mine:

000_4981

For the background I stamped words from the PR Blossom Stamp Set.    The butterfly tail and tiny hearts are from the PR Sweet Pea Stamp Set.

Here is the 4 letter sentiment up close.  It was colored with a water brush pen and Prima inks.

I couldn’t stop playing!  Here’s another sentiment to use on a future card:

Then one last thing.  Here is a tag for a graduate gift of a cruise:

000_4988The background is water colored on white embossed paper with ocean creatures.  They just POP when color is added!

I hope you like my designs!  THX for stopping by!

Hi Friend by Rosemary Dennis!

Hi everyone!!  Rosemary here with another card using the new Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  I have really been enjoying being a guest designer!! My card today is a very simple one layer design with some collage stamping.
When I started the card I was thinking about breast cancer awareness and went with a pink and gray theme.  I started by stamping out the “Hi Friend!” sentiment using gray ink.  I didn’t use my MISTI, but just eyeballed the lettering as I wanted to get my letters as close together as possible.  Once I was done with that I added in the pink color using a few images from the PRS Positive Thoughts stamp set.  I actually used the same color ink for rings and the splatters, but before stamping the splatters I stamped off once on scrap paper so that the splatters would be lighter.   I added the sentiment “You inspire me” in black ink and then a few light pink hearts to finish things off.
I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Inspire Me Friday ~ #bestdadever

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with a fun Father’s Day card using the new Sketchy Alphabet stamp set!

I don’t know about you, but it seems to me we frequently use phrases that follow a hashtag, especially in social media.  When I saw the hashtag in the Sketchy Alphabet set, I knew I would use it for a card like this.  With Father’s Day right around the corner, this presented the perfect opportunity!

6-2-17 PRS Sketchy Alphabet Project 2 IMG_5502

I simply stamped the sentiment using black ink across a white panel, then mounted on a black border using an old border punch.  I paired a strip of patterned paper onto a coordinating aqua blue card base and put it all together.  I kept the sentiment black and white, but you could easily color in the letters for a splash of color.

Can you think of other “hashtag” phrases you could use on a card?  I think it is a great way to personalize your handmade cards.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Create It Wednesday ~ {Mexico Scrapbook Page}

I truly hope you’re finding some fun ways to create word and number layouts for your cards and art projects using the new {Sketchy Alphabet Stamp Set}! Today, I’m sharing a scrapbook page from my trip to Mexico last month with the wonderful BF.

This stamp set is made to create all the title, subtitles, headings, and phrases that you just can’t find in a ready-made stamp set! And it really does scream for you to color in the letters and numbers 🙂 I used a stamp press to make sure all of my ‘Mexico’-s looked the same regardless of my ink switching. I also added the “Don’t forget to take a break” sentiment from the {Blossom Stamp Set}.

I hope you’ll get really wordy and think up ways to use the {Sketchy Alphabet Stamp Set} for your projects! Have a great 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!

Saturday Creations – {Flash Cards}

Hello there!  When I saw this new PR Sketchy Alphabet stamp set with letters and numbers, I immediately flashed back to studying with my son when he was very young.  He was diagnosed with a learning disorder and one of the tricks we learned was to make flash cards to help him remember information.  I think this set would have come in handy!  We used to make the cards together so he learned while he was making the flash cards and then went over them time and time again until he memorized whatever the information was!  Here is my idea for math for a very young child just starting out:

000_4962

I stamped the word with the PR  Sketchy Alphabet set and made the lines with a stamp from the PR Coffee Love stamp set.  For the circle on the tag for the ribbon, I stamped the letter O.  I thought it was cute!

Then inside there are simple addition equations:

000_4967Different colors for each one!

I hope you like this idea!  Thanks for stopping by!
