Project Thursday ~ A Coffee Card and A Year In Review

Hello everyone, I hope you all have a fabulous holidays week! Can you believe that a year almost gone by? New year is coming in 4 more days! And it also means that is the end of my term with Precious Remembrance Shop. It has been an amazing year and for sure I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this amazing team, for Dyane, and for her generosity through out the year.

I have one more card to share with you all today. I created this card with the new Everyday Stamp Set and Coffee Love Stamp Set.

I stamped one of the artsy image from the Everyday Stamp Set with Versamark Ink Pad and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then, I added some red paint using Sakura Koi Water Colors on the background. The heat embossed image resist the watercolor paint.

I used smooshing technique and splatter technique to add more texture with the watercolor paint. I dried it, distress the edge of the paper, and added it on a white card with permanent adhesive.

I stamped the cup from the Coffee Love Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne Ink Pad on a white cardstock and then I fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on the cup with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous and I added the cup on the card with 3D foam tape.

For the other sentiments, they are from Everyday Stamp Set that I stamped with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous, trimmed it into sentiment stripes, and then I added them on the cup with 3D foam tape.

And… before you all go… Here are my Top 5 favorite cards that I created with Precious Remembrance Shop in this year of 2018:

I stamped one of the jars from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set on the green/blue ombre print with VersaFine Clair – Nocturne and then I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Everyday Stamp Set on the orange/yellow print using the  VersaFine Clair – Nocturne. I cut it into sentiment banner and punch a tag hole on it.

I wrapped twine around the jar and then I added the tag and one of the Light Mint Buttons. I use one of the mini wooden clothes pin to add the tag on the gift bag.

Create It Wednesday~Happy Halloween

Welcome to another edition of Create It Wednesday.  I’ve had a little 3×4 inch black bag in my stash waiting to be used for several years.  The adorable PRS Beware stamp set inspired me to turn it into a goodie bag for a friend.

PRS DT Halloween Bag no wm

I stamped the Trick or Treat border 4 times in black ink and Happy Halloween 3 times in purple ink.  I trimmed each into strips and attached them to the bag front.  The cute Jack O Lantern image was stamped in orange ink onto the little scalloped circle die cut.  For a bit of sparkle I added orange glitter glue to the eyes and mouth.

A white crochet thread bow was tied onto the die cut before attaching it to the bag.  Black, purple and orange twines were tied in a bow around the handle to finish it off.  Now I just have to find my shreds and add the candy!

Are you ready for Halloween?  Why not grab one of these sets for yourself while they’re on sale for just $7.99.  I’ll see you next time.

Inspire Me Friday – {for you}

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  I’m here today with one final project using the fun Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  For my project today I decided to create a gift bag using one of the white bags available in the Precious Remembrance Shop store. 

for you bag 4

My little bag is pretty simple.  I started by creating a rosette from some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye.  I used a small circle on the back to stabilize the rosette and then adhered the rosette to a pink doily that you can also find in the Precious Remembrance Shop store.   Using a neutral piece of paper from the same pad I stamped the words ‘for’ and ‘you’ in pink and then die cut it with a circle die.   The circle was adhered to the rosette and then I added a little bow twine with some paper twine.    To complete the bag I added a strip of coordinating patterned paper to the bag and a pink button (rose quartz from the Precious Remembrance Shop store) to the center of the twine.     I hope you will give this super fun and easy project a try using your Precious Remembrance Shop stamps!  Don’t forget… if you place a qualifying order of $30 or more you will automatically receive 10 stamp storage pouches!

Hope you have a wonderful day… thanks for stopping by!

Project Thursday ~ DIY Kraft Gift Bag

Hello everyone… Happy Thursday! Helen is here today with a Project Thursday to share with you that I created with Precious Remembrance clear stamps and Gift Wrap supplies.

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-01

To create this gift bag is pretty simple 🙂 It is a project that you can make in short time or mass-produce for your party.

First, randomly I stamped the cassette tape image from Daily Thoughts Stamp Set on all over the front of a Plain Kraft / Flat Paper Bag with similar color dye ink pad. Quick and easy stamping, right 🙂

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-03

Next is to create the personalized mini wooden clip and gift tag.

For the mini wooden clip, I stamped the stars from Daily Thoughts Stamp Set directly on the mini wooden clip using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink Pad. I set it aside to dry while working on the tag.

I stamped the sentiment box and sentiment phrase from the Happy Mail Stamp Set on a piece of white cardstock using Orange dye ink pad. Then, I trimmed it down and turned it into a tag. You also an use any tag dies if you have 🙂

prs-dailythoughts-feb22-giftbag-helen-02

I stacked one of the Mini Yellow Doilies, then the gift tag, and twine bow together, and clipped them on the stamped kraft paper bag with the personalized mini wooden clip.

The size of this paper bag is 6 1/4″ x 9 1/4″ that is ideal and big enough to stuff fun gifts inside and finish it with some white tissue paper.

I hope you all enjoy this Project Thursday this week… and don’t forget to check the Precious Remembrance store for more stamps, embellishments, gift wraps, and more…!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
