Create It Wednesday~Celebrate

Hello everyone & welcome to another Create It Wednesday.  Today’s card uses two PRS stamp sets:  Daily Thoughts and Oh So Fun.  I began by trimming a white cardstock panel to the shape I wanted.  Then I white embossed the fun cassette tape and sponged with Distress Oxide twisted citron.  As you can see, I used a heavier hand inside the images.

Next I stamped the little sentiment as the title for each cassette using the same ink.  A stamp positioner made it possible to stamp multiple times to achieve the intensity I wanted.  I filled in some of the blank space with the little star cluster.  The dots were done by touching the end of a waterbrush to the inked panel & blotting with a paper towel.  I stamped “celebrate” on the card front & then dry embossed for some great texture.

The stamped panel was mounted with fun foam to finish off my simple birthday card.  I think the bright green is festive & works for a guy or a gal–especially someone not too young who loves music!  So glad you stopped by and hope you’ve found something to inspire you.  Be sure to check out all the wonderful products in the PRS Shop and I’ll see you next time.

Design It Monday ~ {Trevor Documented!}

Hi friends, Lisa here today! I’m sharing a fun little project using six Kraft/Flat Bags from the shop. This is for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They’re retired and enjoying many outdoor adventures with their 2 year old grandson Trevor. This little project is something for them to record some of those adventures, tuck in a photo or two and maybe a pressed leaf or flower that sweet little Trevor discovers! Grab your coffee or beverage of choice, this is a photo heavy post!

I began with a collection of coordinating patterned paper.

Then pulled several stamp sets and items from a couple of the Bits & Pieces collections.

I scored and folded the bags in half then punched holes to tie them together. The patterned paper wraps around to the back of the book bringing a sturdier feeling to the paper bags. Using the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set, I stamped and punched the letters for Trevor’s name. I’ve used stamps from Daily Thoughts, This Moment and Positive Thoughts on the cover.

This pair of inside pages features images from the Journey stamp set and the large camera (color altered with Copics) from Bits & Pieces: Journey.

Star clusters from Daily Thoughts and a couple of items from Bits & Pieces: Daily Thoughts  and Bits & Pieces: Journey jazzed up this page.

This page is my favorite. I like how well the lime green and aqua in the patterned paper coordinated with the aqua from the Bits & Pieces: Journey items. I stamped a sentiment from the Daily Thoughts stamp set on a die cut banner.

But then again, I like this one too! That glow around the stars on the paper is so nifty! I used the Positive Thoughts stamp set here.

The left page has a pocket under the patterned paper. It’s decorated with sentiments from Bits & Pieces: Daily Thoughts.  The right page contains a sentiment from the Daily Thoughts stamp set.

I slipped same file tabbed papers into the bag openings with more journaling spots. I used the Sketchy Alphabet and This Moment stamp sets on them.

And there you go. A fun little memory book for grandma and grandpa to fill with their cherished Trevor memories. Thanks so much for sticking with me!

Foiled Gift Tag by Erica Thompson!

Hello and Happy Saturday! Erica back with you today to share my last project as Guest Designer! I have had so much sharing with you all and I hope you have enjoyed all my projects! I have said this over and over but I really do love all of the stamps from PRS! I get so much use out of them and that is really important to me! Today I am using the Daily Thoughts and Positive Thoughts stamp sets!

I wanted to create a simple tag to add to gift and treat bags! I knew I wanted to use the cassette image from Daily Thoughts but instead of just stamping it out I thought it would be fun to add some gold foil!

Now in order to add foil using my Minc machine I needed to make sure the image was printed with my laser printer. I stamped the image out on a piece of white cardstock and took a photo of it. I then uploaded the photo to my computer and opened it up in Silhouette Studio.

Once it was in Silhouette Studio I resized the image and filled an 8.5×11 sheet with the image. I sent it to my laser printer and then cut our the images. Now they are ready to be sent through the Minc machine for some foil!

This is so easy to do and can be done with other stamped images! I just wish I had more colors of foil in my stash!

I went ahead and foiled all the images that I printed and cut and now I have some super cute tags to use! I can add different sayings onto the cassette as well with stamps or stickers! For this project I used the Positive Thoughts stamp set and stamped the word Hello onto the cassette!

I also added a pretty black doily and some cute polka dot tissue paper! I clipped the tag onto the bag with a gold paperclip that I added some ribbon to. So quick and simple!

 

I love this technique and hope you give it a try! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Don’t forget to follow Precious Remembrance Shop on Facebook and Instagram so you can stay up to date on their next release! I know I can’t wait to see it!

Project Thursday ~ Thinking Of You Card Set

PRS-ProjectThursday-Mar8-HelenGullett

Hello everyone… Helen is here today. I have a set of Thinking of You cards to share with you that I created with two stamp sets and buttons. When I make a set of cards or mass-produce, I like to go with clean-and-simple style 🙂

PRS-ProjectThursday-Mar8-HelenGullett-001

First step I created the watercolored backgrounds. I scribble some of the Aquamarine Spectrum Aqua marker on a piece acetate and sprayed with some water. Then I used that acetate to stamp directly on the front of the white cards. I did it couple time to create the layers and dried it every time I added layer of color.

PRS-ProjectThursday-Mar8-HelenGullett-002

Next step is creating the flowers. I stamped the petals and stalks from Blossom Stamp Set on patterned papers with Versafine Onyx Black. Then I fussy cut each of them with micro-tip scissors. I added the flowers on the cards with dries-clear adhesive glue.

PRS-ProjectThursday-Mar8-HelenGullett-003

After all the flowers added on the cards, I stamped the sentiment from Daily Thoughts Stamp Set with the same ink pad using Mini MISTI. And then I embellished cards with some Simply Butter Buttons. And the cards are done… here are the close up of the cards:

Thank you so much for stopping today! Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {never give up}

Hello and welcome! It’s Kelly here and I’ve got an inspirational card to share with you today. I combined a few sets to create a card for someone who may be going through a hard time. To begin, I embossed the feather image from the DIY Stamp set using gold powder onto vellum. I also embossed a few of the outline star images from the new Daily Thoughts around the feather for some added interest and detail. The smaller  sentiment, which is also from Daily Thoughts, is stamped onto the vellum using Jet Black StazOn ink. I like using this particular ink because it is a solvent ink and it won’t smear on the vellum.

The arrow or chevron image is gold embossed as well onto a strip of coral colored cardstock. I trimmed it down to fit nicely over the vellum piece. I did some loose, messy watercoloring onto a panel of cold pressed watercolor paper and then ran it through my crimping tool for some added texture. I did some creative gluing on the back of the vellum, applying glue on top of the gold stars, the feather, under the coral strip and under the “w” on the word “when”. Once I had the glue in place, I adhered it to the corrugated panel. I applied pressure here and there so that it all stayed in place.

The “never give up” sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink onto  a strip of black cardstock. I added this to the vellum piece using foam squares. This entire focal panel is adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock that has another embossed detail. I wasn’t planning on using a third set for this card, but I just LOVE the small detail that these horizontal lines give the side of the card. This particular stamp is from the Coffee Love set. I added a few clear sequins, which also have glue under them to hold the vellum to the corrugated piece. The finishing touch is a bow of black and white Baker’s twine, which gives it another pop of black! I actually added the “never give up” sentiment over the top of the tail of the twine to hold it in place.  I love how soft and pretty this card turned out…just perfect to give someone for a bit of encouragement!

Inspire Me Friday – {Currently… Thinking of You}

Hello and happy Friday everyone!!!  Have you been enjoying all the fabulous projects that the design team have been creating over the last two months???  I know I have!!  Today I have a little black and white number that uses both the Daily Thoughts stamp set and another item from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack.  I just love that embellishment pack!!

BlackWhite PRS

I started my project by stamping the cassette tape on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then trimmed it out.  I cut a strip of black cardstock and adhered it to a white cardstock card base.  Since I had decided to use the circle sentiment that says ‘thinking of you’ from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack I stamped the word ‘currently’ in VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed it in white embossing powder.  Once that was done I trimmed it out and layered up all my elements just as you see them.   Super clean, simple and fun!!

Thanks for stopping by today… I hope you have a wonderful one!!

Create it Wednesday~Daily Thoughts Gift Bag

Welcome to another edition of Create it Wednesday.  My project today is a gift bag to brighten someone’s day.  The PRS store has both white & kraft bags available.  I started by making a double tag.  Several of the encouraging sentiments in the Daily Thoughts stamp set were lined up on an acrylic block & stamped repeatedly in brown ink on a white die cut rectangle.  At the bottom I overstamped two leaves from the DIY stamp set in Brilliance Pearlescent Olive ink & added a little wooden star.

PRS Daily Thoughts Bag close up

The tag was attached at an angle to a vellum die cut rectangle.  I used a brown twine bow & a little white clothespin to add the tag at the top of the bag.

PRS Daily Thoughts Bag

Little star clusters from Daily Thoughts were stamped randomly in kraft ink around the tag.  Now it’s ready to fill with treats, a paperback book or better yet–a stamp set from the PRS Store!  Hope I’ve given you some ideas for personalizing a gift bag with stamping.

Design It Monday ~ {Volume!}

Hey there stampers, Lisa here with another Deign It Monday post! I have a CAS card to share with you today featuring the Daily Thoughts Stamp Set.

The title for my cassette tape was created using the Date Stamp Set. I jazzed up portions of the cassette with a silver Gelly Roll pen and Wink of Stella.

Project_20180108_0001 copy

What is U2, you might be wondering? That would be the name of one of my favorite music groups ever. I have a CD in my car that I play just about every time I’m out an about. I love a warm day when I can have the moon roof open, all windows down and the volume UP!! I’m courteous when other driver’s are close, but crank it up when I’m on the open road LOL! Yep you might say I ‘enjoy the moment, and let the music  play’…with volume!

Project_20180108_0002 copy

Turning up the glitz volume, I embossed the stars (Daily Thoughts Stamp Set) with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I had not intended to have the sentiment on a banner. But, I dropped my stamp block and had to adapt and overcome!

Your CAS cards can speak volumes with just a pop of color and a little sparkle. The added bonus is that you don’t need extra postage for a flat card!

So Cute OMG! by Erica Thompson

Hello! I am so excited to be back on the Precious Remembrance blog today sharing another project with you! Today I have a very colorful and fun 12×12 layout to share and I hope you love it as much as I do! I used the Daily Thoughts stamp set and had so much fun!

I pulled out the fun and colorful Addison 6×8 paper pad from Bella Blvd and began stamping the cassette tape all over the different papers! Once I had them all stamped out I cut them all up and began layering them up to create colorful cassettes!

Once all my cassette tapes were done I started to add them to my white 12×12 cardstock. I decided to add them to the top half of my layout and add my photo in the middle center of the paper! I pulled embellishments from the Addison collection as well and I think the headphone ephemera piece goes perfect!

I added a little bit of color with some inks and mists to add a little more fun and color to the layout!

This layout came together pretty fast once I had all the cassette tapes put together which was actually pretty fun to do! I love how bright and colorful they all look! I also added some word stickers to some of the cassettes that I thought went well with the photo of my daughter and her bestie! Here is the completed layout! This stamp set is so much fun and can be used so many ways!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Make sure to check out the Precious Remembrance Shop to see all their amazing stamps! Also follow them on Instagram and Facebook for more inspiration and to stay up to date on all the new releases! Happy Stamping!
