Project Thursday – Thinking Of You Card Set


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 ūüôā


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.


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.


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:




I love having any type of cards ready in my card box whenever I need them. What type of cards do you like to have them ready in your stash whenever you need it? I hope you all can enjoy this post and inspired to create today.

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

Tuesday Ideas: Gold Blossom

Hello, everyone!¬† It’s Melissa back with one last clean & simple card idea for the new Blossom set!

This week, I used gold tinsel embossing powder on one of the blossoms in the set to give it a little sparkle and shine.  I used one of the circles in the New Day stamp set as a flower center, popping it up with a foam dot.  The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts set.  I used a stitched border die to dress things up a bit and added more dimension by popping up the entire main panel using foam dots.

This set has so many possibilities and I love that it works so well for clean and simple design!

Until next time, happy stamping!

{create it wednesday} … watercolor

Hello PRS fans!!¬† Rosemary here today with my final post highlighting the new Blossom stamp set.¬†¬† Ever since I received this set from Dyane I have wanted to create a card that uses watercoloring because I think this set was made to be watercolored!!¬†¬† Well… today is the day!¬† I recently purchased a set of Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints and used them for my card.¬†¬† They sure are lovely to work with!

After watching a couple of videos showing how to use the paints I got to work.  I stamped the small jar image from Oh So Fun using VersaFine Vintage Sepia and then added the flower and stem using the same ink on Ranger watercolor paper.  I taped the panel to a small wood cutting board with painters tape and colored up the image.  Taping the panel down and leaving it that way to dry cuts down on warping that can occur as the panel dries.    Once the panel was dry I cut it down using a rectangle die with a little dotted border and added the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.   I added little drops of Glossy Accents to create the look of condensation on the jar.  Here is a detail shot of the droplets:

Tuesday Ideas: Color with Spray!

Hello, everyone!¬† It’s time again for Tuesday Ideas using the newest Blossom stamp set!¬† I created another clean & simple card design to share with you.

I tend to forget I can use my shimmer sprays to color images, but remembered when planning today’s post!¬† I stamped one of the pretty blossoms in the set on white cardstock before spritzing it with purple and gold shimmer sprays.¬† After it dried, the image was fussy cut and a clear gemstone was added to the flower center.¬† I die cut the stitched circle and stamped the three words on it.¬† The flower was then attached to the circle using a foam dot.¬† The assembled piece was popped up on the card base using foam dots.¬† I’m thinking this card will go to one of my crafty friends!

I hope you’re having a great start to your summer!¬† I’m still adjusting to having four kids home all day, every day!

Until next time!  Happy stamping!

{create it wednesday}… believe… inspire…

Hello PRS fans!!¬†¬† Rosemary here today with another {Create it Wednesday} post sharing a project that I made using the new Blossom stamp set.¬†¬† As many of you know right now the Summer Coffee Lover’s blog hop is going on and Precious Remembrance Shop is one of the sponsors… YAY!! So… when I saw Dyane’s super cute card (click here to see her card) for the hop I was inspired to create my version.

I started by stamping the coffee cup from Coffee Love twice using VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink.¬† I then covered both cups with one of the flowers from Blossom using bright summery colors.¬† The cups were then trimmed out.¬† Continuing with the bright color scheme I stamped the center portion of the cup on some bright yellow patterned paper, trimmed them out,¬†attached them to the cups and then stamped¬†them with¬†sentiments “create”, “inspire”, “happiness” and “believe”.¬† The lids were also stamped, again, twice, trimmed out and attached to the cups with foam dimensionals.¬† A panel of bright orange polka dot patterned paper was attached to the card stock base and then I added the cups and the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by… if you haven’t taken part in the Summer Coffee Lover’s blog hop, there is still time to get out your stamps and play along.¬† You could even win your own “Coffee Love” stamp set!

Hey There… rosigrl¬†
