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:

Project Thursday ~ I {Heart} You, You’re My Sunshine

PreciousRemembranceShop-IHeartU

Hello everyone… Helen is here. Today I have a CAS card with fun watercolored distressed background and some layers using the Thanks Stamp SetJourney Stamp Set, and VersaFine Clair Ink Pads.

I created the background with smooshing technique using watercolor paper, water, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Ink Pads. After that, I sprayed and sprinkled with some water, let it sit for couple seconds, and dabbed if off with paper towel. I added some splatters on it with the same ink pad.

I dried it well with craft heater. And then I cut it with one of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

Next, I stamped the stars and dots from Journey Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair – Summertime Ink Pad. Then I added this finished panel on a white card with adhesive glue.

For the vocal point of this card, I created the layers of stamped images from both stamp set and twine.

I stamped the film strip image from Journey Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair – Nocturne (black) Ink Pad on a white cardstock, and then I fussy cut it with scissors.

The sentiments are from Thanks Stamp Set. On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the I {Heart} U circle image with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous Ink Pad and then I stamped the phrase “you’re my sunshine” with VersaFine Clair – Summertime Ink Pad. I fussy cut them also with scissors.

Now all piece are ready. I added the white twine on the card and secured it with dries-clear adhesive glue. Next, I added the film strip on top of the twine with 3D foam tape. And then I added both sentiments on top of the film strip with adhesive glue.

I hope you all enjoy today’s card. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {that moment}

Welcome! It’s Kelly here with my latest installment of Tuesday Ideas! I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head for quite a while, so I am excited to share it with all of you! Last time, I shared with you a fun idea for using acetate, and I’m back at it again, but this time I’m also incorporating Shrinky Dinks! I knew that I wanted to stamp the film strip image from the Journey Stamp set onto acetate using Jet Black StazOn ink. I also wanted to incorporate many of the larger images from the set into my design. This would have been impossible with such a small card, but by shrinking them, I have the perfect, tiny embellishment!

The images on the Shrinky Dink pieces are all from the Journey stamp set as well. I created this card to send to the photographer that took my daughter’s head shots and performance pictures when she performed in The Nutcracker this past Christmas season. I can’t wait for her to get it! I really think she will like all of the details that I included on the card. The “click click” and “smile smile” images are heat embossed on the card using gold powder.

I absolutely LOVE how perfectly the “that moment” sentiment complements this design. It, as well as the black sentiment stamped along the film strip, is from the newly released Daily Thoughts stamp set!  It is also embossed in gold for maximum shine! The film strips are stapled to the card and then I added a small pink bow to cover them.  I had so much fun on this design!
