Design It Monday ~ {Special Delivery}

Hi stampers, Lisa here today! I’m taking a slight departure from fall and holiday projects to share a pretty little tag made with the Happy Mail and Sweet Pea stamp sets. Another example of how the PRS sets coordinate so beautifully together!

This began with stamping the pea pod (Sweet Pea) and envelope (Happy Mail) images. They were colored with Copics and fussy cut. Wink of Stella was added to the pea pod and a glitter jelly roll pen was used for the teeny heart on the envelope.

The flowers (Sweet Pea) were stamped onto my die cut tag then the postal lines (Happy Mail). After coloring the flowers, the envelope and pea pod were added with foam tape. The sentiment and arrows (Happy Mail) were stamped onto a banner before adding it to the tag. A few teeny hearts (Sweet Pea) were added along with sequins as accents. A junk bow and chunky button top everything off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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!

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.

17 0611 003 copy

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!

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!

Design It Monday ~ Tiny Treats!

Hello Precious Remembrance Shop friends! Lisa here today with my first Design it Monday using the newly released Date Stamp Set. I’ve paired this versatile set up with a couple of others from the shop to create some fun tiny treats!

17 0205 004 copy

To begin my project, I created tags using the month and number images.  I stamped the heart rectangle from the This Moment Stamp Set then added the month from the Date Stamp Set. My day of the month was stamped on polka dot paper then punched with a 1/2″ circle punch. This was added to the tag with a foam pop dot. The teeny hearts from the Sweet Pea Stamp Set were added next.

17 0205 005copy copy

The tags were adhered to a die cut heart. After adding the gray polka dot ribbon, I glued on the teddy bear from the retired Little One Stamp Set. I stamped just the head of the bear, colored with Copics then fussy cut.

17 0205 003 copy

These were popped onto tiny glassine bags measuring 4″ X 2 3/4″. When shopping for Valentine tiny treats to put in the bags, I was delighted to find Tiny Conversation Hearts!

Stay tuned for more projects from the team featuring our new set! LisaDT-659x1024

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!:)

{Inspire Me Friday} You’re Sweet…That’s All!

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, back with my next installment of {Inspire Me Friday} highlighting the fun “Totally” stamp set!

For my card, I combined the graphic images from the “Totally” set with some accents from two others sets, including “Happy Art” and “Sweet Pea.”

8-12-16 PRS Totally Project 3 Card

I took some of the guess work out of deciding what colors to combine by using a set of coordinating ink cubes by Hero Arts called “Summer Splash.”  The ink colors in the set include all of the inks you see on my card: Tide Pool, Butter Bar, Orange Soda, and Soft Granite.

I started out with a white stitched die cut rectangle, and I stamped the paint stripes, ink splatters (from “Happy Art”), and stars.  Next I added the main sentiment in Soft Granite ink.  I filled in the blank with the word “sweet” from the adorable “Sweet Pea” set and used the swirly underline from the same set to highlight the word “really.”  Some of Lisa’s “Sweet Pea Sequins” finished off the card.

I mounted the white rectangle onto gray card stock before adhering to my tide pool card base.  I am happy with the general sentiment on the card front…this way I can add a more specific sentiment on the inside of the card when I need it.  This could easily be a birthday card, a thank you note, or even a thinking of you card.

8-12-16 PRS Totally Project 3 Card 2

I do hope you have enjoyed my card…now it’s your turn to get your Precious Remembrance Shop stamps out and play!  Have fun!

Design It Monday ~ {You’re all that…and more!}

Hi friends, I’m back with another Design It Monday post using the new Totally stamp set. I have a bright and playful card to share today!

16 0720 0016

I started with a die cut tag then added the stamped images. I used the selective inking method on some of the sentiments from the set to mix things up a bit! The line under the word all is stamped a little crooked…oops! I guess that just adds to the hand made charm, looks hand drawn!

16 0720 0015

I used one of the underscores from the Sweet Pea stamp set to emphasis the word that. Several stars were added in three ink colors. The star splatters are from the Journey stamp set. I used one of the little rectangle boxes from the This Moment stamp set to add a hand written message. Some fun patterned paper and twine finished things off for me.

I think this saying applies to all of the PRS stamp sets. They mix and match so easily. Yep, “They’re all that and a bag of chips”!! How’s that for a throwback saying!! Thanks for stopping by.

Saturday Creations ~ {totally Smitten}

How about a mixed media piece using our new Precious Remembrance Totally Stamp Set?

000_4753

I liked stamping the brush strokes to kinda “frame” the canvas that I inserted into the wooden frame that was painted turquoise.  I even stamped the geometric patterns on the wooden frame and added some molding paste through a stencil!  And then came the dark blue splats!  How FUN is that???!!!

000_4752

I LOVE combining Precious Remembrance stamp sets and for this creation I used stamps from three different PR stamp sets – PR Totally Stamp Set using three of the stamps, the PR Happy Art Stamp Set for the hearts, and the Sweet Pea Stamp Set (designed by Lisa Elton) for the word Smitten.

This was so much FUN and totally different than the idea I started out with!  Sometimes you just have to go with the creative flow!
