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:

Next is creating the gift tag. First, I created the 2 ombre color backgrounds with monoprint technique using acrylic paints and gelli plate. I pulled the print using heavyweight cardstock.

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.

Tuesday Ideas: A Beautiful Ride

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa returning with another Tuesday Ideas post!  Today, I’m highlighting the School Days stamp set one last time!

I had this idea come to me as I was looking through my stash of Precious Remembrance Shop stamps & saw the sentiment (New Day set)!  I went searching for the perfect paper to use for paper piecing!  Isn’t it great how the school bus in this set can quickly become any kind of bus you’d like it to be?!  I have so much patterned paper that this bus can take on whatever paint job it wants for months!  I used Stampendous Dots for the headlights this time as they are flat and shimmery pink in color.  I popped up the finished bus with foam dots to add a little dimension.

I hope autumn is treating you well!  Cooler days usually mean more time to stamp, right?!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Tuesday Ideas: Create a Plan

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more ideas for those Precious Remembrance stamps you have in your stash or have had your eyes on in the store!

How about a little organizational idea today?  Did you know you can use the Love Coupon set to create a weekly planner page for yourself?

Maybe you need to plan your meals for a week, create a chore chart for your child, record your hard efforts at the gym, document life’s little details at a moment’s notice, keep a gratitude journal or simply make a to do list.  This little sheet could work for any of those ideas & more!  I had a little clip board sitting around the house and it triggered the light bulb moment for this project!

Using a rainbow of ink colors, I stamped two columns of the coupon image and then added the days of the week to each box using the days from the This Moment set.  I added the circles & the “life is a beautiful ride” sentiment using one of the stamps from the New Day stamp set.  The little red heart is from the Coffee Love stamp set.  The finished page was trimmed to fit the clip board and a little piece of polka dot ribbon was added to the top.

So simple, but just think of all the things you could use something like this for!  I’m excited & I like to think this sheet could be color copied for mulitiple uses and then kept as the master copy!

Until next time, happy stamping!

p.s.  You might want to bop over to my blog today to see the last minute idea I had for a wedding card using two more Precious Remembrance stamp sets!

Design It Monday ~ {Artsy Layers}

{Giveaway winner annouced! Check it here.}

——————————————————————————————————

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a brush stroked, dotted, star splattered card! Now normally that might sound like a real mess!! But with Dyane’s trendy images from the {New Day} stamp set it all comes together in a fun display of artsy layers!

I started with the brush stroke image stamping it diagonally on a white panel in a variety of soft colors. Next I added the medium dotted circle using generation stamping. The starry splatter from the {Journey} stamp set was layered on followed by the sentiment. I pulled a variety of card base colors and let my hubby decide which one. I think he made a good choice!

I’m not a trendy person. By the time I get around to it it’s usually known as being “so last year”!! But with the fun mix of right on trend images in this new set, it’s easy to be trendy and okay to be different!

Thanks so much for spending a little time with us today. Stay tuned for more inspiration from our talented design team using this new set.
