Inspire Me Friday – {totally love you}

Hi friends!!  So excited to be back on the PRS blog sharing a project I made using the super fun Totally stamp set!  I also used the Love Coupon stamp set and some pieces from the Love Coupon Bits  &  Pieces collection.

totally 2

I recently purchased a pad of patterned paper from the Prima Zella Teal collection.  I saw another crafter using items from this collection and I just fell in love with it.   As I thought about what I would make for my project I thought about this pad and decided to use some for my card.  I wanted a card that could be given to a man or a woman so I pulled out some paper from the collection that would work for both and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  Some additional paper that has a kraft look to it was die cut with another rectangle die.   Pulling colors from the collection I used some VersaMagic inks in Oasis Green to stamp the border and Wheat to stamp the large word totally.   The sentiment love you is from the Love Coupon set and actually says I Love you, but I masked off the I before inking up the sentiment and stamping it in VersaFine Onyx Black.  The little hearts from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces collection were trimmed out (they were originally circles) and popped them up with foam dimensionals.  Before layering everything up on my card base I wrapped some black twine around the patterned paper piece and then tied it with a simple knot.    I hope I have given you a good idea for a card to make for a man or woman!!

Create It Wednesday~A Graphic Hello

Greta here and I’m excited to share my first Create It Wednesday project with you.  I chose a wintry color combo of teal and gray for a one layer note card.


The Totally stamp set has some fun graphic images & I used two of them.  Each image was stamped at an angle across the top of the card front.  It was really easy to line up the images and could be done in a variety of color combos.


I added a bit of sparkle to the triangles with a glitter gel pen.  Love how the sketchy word from the This Moment stamp set goes with the graphic images.  Think this works for a guy or a gal, so that’s always a plus.

Hope I’ve given you some inspiration to get stamping!

Design It Monday ~ {Total Happiness!}

Hello and Happy New Year! Lisa here today with my first 2018 installment of Design It Monday. Today’s card is all about the stamping!

I drew a couple of light pencil lines on a 4″ x 3 1/2″ rustic ivory panel to help line up the fun graphic images from the Totally Stamp Set. Next came the sentiment using a combination of images. I did some selective inking on the word ‘totally’ and ‘me/you’ (Totally) then added the word ‘happiness’ from the Blossom Stamp Set. After die cutting a pair of file tabs, I added two more words from the Totally Stamp Set.

The design was modern and fun, but still a little too plain. So, I added a trio of flowers from the Blossom Stamp Set using a light green ink. I wanted the look to be subtle but add interest. To connect the rosy pink color throughout the card, I added the splatters (Positive Thoughts) using second generation stamping.

Just a little something funky and fun to brighten your day!

DIY: Gift Wrapping Idea – Sweet Little Gift!

Hi stampers! Happy Holidays!:)

Today I have another gift wrapping idea for you. Perfect for any occasion.

Look! I can totally see it for Valentine’s Day too. What do you think?

STAMPS: Happy MailLove Coupon

I stamped the hearts from the Love Coupon stamp set repeatedly on a piece of printing paper.

To add more softness, I placed a white doily on the top along with some white thread for some fun texture.

I stamped my sentiment as my tag from the Happy Mail stamp set, and placed it in the middle of everything.

And then I drew a red heart on one of the boxes.

It goes perfectly with the other gift wrapping ideas that I previously shared. But this one definitely has a sweet touch!:)

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

May you enjoy celebrating this holiday season with family & friends.

It has been an amazing year. Thank you so much for joining us.

Looking forward for another fun adventure next year with you!

Happy Stamping!

His & Hers Valentines!

Hi friends, Lisa here today sharing some his and hers valentines! These were all made using the Bits & Pieces: Love Coupon collection.

Project_20171227_0004 copy

My first ‘His’ valentine started with two die cut stitched panels. The large XOXO was added with foam dots. I created the tiny banners along the bottom of my focal image with snippets of patterned paper and one of the Bits & Pieces images that is cut in half.

Project_20171227_0003 copy

The first of my ‘Hers’ cards began with a dotty PP with die cut edges. The Bits & Pieces images were layered on in a cascading design. A little Wink of Stella, a bit of a paper doily and a few enamel dots bring on that feminine touch.

Project_20171227_0005 copy

For my second ‘His’ card, I continued with the stitched die cut panels layered in a wonky manner. Once again I stacked the Bits & Pieces images to keep the design clean and simple.

Project_20171227_0006 copy

My final ‘Hers’ valentine is extra feminine with it’s lush red satin bow! I popped the focal Bits & Pieces square onto a die cut tag that was dry embossed with a lace doily impression.

These all went together so quickly with the fun Bits & Pieces: Love Coupon collection. You could mass produce several in no time at all for your family, friends or even those classroom valentines.  Order yours today so you can get to work!

More Sweet Peas!

Hi there PRS friends! I’m back today with two more Christmas tags to share. Once again I’ve used the Sweet Pea Stamp Set. But this time I’ve added images from the Oh Christmas Stamp Set too.

Project_20171219_0001 copy

As mentioned in my last post, my little Sweet P will be receiving a tea set. I thought this tag would be perfect for that package! After die cutting a tea pot, I randomly stamped the teeny single heart (Sweet Pea) using Versa Mark ink and embossed in gold. The pea pod (Sweet Pea) was stamped on the die cut oval then popped onto the teapot with foam tape. I stamped and fussy cut the small pine sprigs (Oh Christmas) and tucked them in with buttons and little felt holly leaves. The pea pod and pine are accented with a glitter Gelly Roll pen.

Next up is another tag using the cutie patootie Miss P from the Sweet Pea Stamp Set. She’s stamped colored, punched out, glittered then added to a die cut snowflake with a foam dot. The snowflake was stamped with the teeny heart and embossed in gold.

Project_20171219_0004 copy

I’ve used the date and pine images (Oh Christmas) on a die cut circle. Second generation stamping on the pine sprigs gave the wreath more depth.

Project_20171219_0003 copy

An ultra sparkly glittered tag topped with oodles of gold twine and some pretty chevron ribbon complete the picture. This one will probably go on some new books for Sweet P’s library!

Thanks so much for visiting with us today. I’ll be back soon with some fun Valentine inspiration! Wishing you all a very happy and blessed holiday season.

Plan With Me – Christmas Week Edition + Video!:)

Hi stampers! Happy Monday!:) Let’s start our week with a brand new project idea, and this time it’s for your planner!

This month has been full of Christmas project ideas, from cards, gift wraps, tags, & more!:) Christmas is definitely getting closer, and what a fun time to document each day, look back, and see all the activities you did every year.

Here are some inspiration on how you can decorate your planner using our Oh Christmas Sticker Collection + our stamps – JOY, Happy Mail, Sketchy Christmas.

See the entire collection here:

OH CHRISTMAS STICKER COLLECTION

On the top, you can use these days of the week stickers & can easily write your own date since it’s not labelled by year. Nice!:)

Start adding stickers & space for writing. You have an option to keep it open / white space. Have fun!

I wanted to incorporate different shapes & texture. I decided to stamped some images on some other boxes. You can easily mix & match our collection.

Weekends is a family day for us!:) So I know I don’t need too much space to write notes. But if you do, don’t add stickers yet, & place it later on.:)

That’s my Christmas week planner. I can’t wait to fill it with fun & unforgettable notes!

Thank you so much for joining me today.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.:)

Sparkling Sweet Peas!

Surprise, it’s Lisa here on a Saturday! I’ll be popping in over the next couple of weeks with some extra projects. Today I’m sharing a couple of Christmas tags I made for my little Sweet P using the Sweet Pea Stamp Set. Speaking of this set, it’s on sale for $8.99 as a special gift to you!

Project_20171214_0012 copy

After die cutting an ornament, I stamped the small sweet pea pod then filled in with some tiny gold embossed stars. The pea pods are colored with Copics and the peas themselves are glittered. This ornament die came with a label. I cut it from vellum then heat embossed Sweet P (using selective inking) in gold. There is a solid white ornament on the back to cover the bleed through of the Copics. It also helps to hold the gold twine in place.

Project_20171214_0006 copy

I had so much fun making this tiny mitten tag ~ it’s 3″ tall! After stamping and coloring (Copics) the large sweet pea pod, I used a knitted embossing folder to give the mitten a warm and cozy look. The bottom cuff is covered with tiny seed beads and I filled in the empty spaces in the pea pod with glitter. The tag is topped with a snippet of satin ribbon, old fashioned tinsel and a little hand cut banner holding Sweet P’s name.

Project_20171214_0011 copy

I think these will go on the baby doll and cradle she’ll have to unwrap! She’s getting a tea set too. I’ll be sharing that tag soon!

I hope I’ve inspired you to look at your stamp sets differently. It doesn’t have to be a Christmas set to make Christmas tags. Hurry over to pick up your Sweet Pea Stamp Set to create sparkly little tags for the Sweet Peas in your life!

DIY Greeting Card with Gift Card Holder! Yay!:)

Hello stampers! I’m sure most of your Christmas cards are already out!:) But, it’s never too late to make one that you can just include in your gift bags for Christmas party or Christmas morning when it’s time to open presents!

This card is perfect in any occasion. Easy to make any day.:)

I kept it pretty simple when it comes to color combo, the classic black & white.

On a piece of paper, I used the Happy Mail Stamp Set for my design. I stamped a mixed of images from the set.

I added a layer of glassine bag on the base of my card where I can easily add any gift card or notes inside!

Over the glassine bag, I added some thread for a nice touch & texture. And then layer that piece of paper with stamped images on top.

Inside of the card, you still have spot to write your notes for friends & family. Fun right?:)

Thank you so much for joining me today. Stay warm & happy stamping!
