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.

Create It Wednesday~Artsy & Fun Birthday Card

Hope you’re enjoying our artsy celebration week on the blog.  I decided to make a funky birthday card using these three PRS Stamp Sets:  EverydayOh So Fun and Fall Colors.  You may not see a flower image in these sets, but that didn’t stop me from making one for my card!  PRS DT 3 sets for flower

I began with the Everyday stamp set where I saw the circle as a bloom, one of the lines as a stem and the triangle as leaves.  The bloom was a little too small, so I used one of the solid triangles in the Oh So Fun set to give it more substance.  Must admit, it was fun to step outside my comfort zone to be a little artsy!  I used Distress Oxides abandoned coral, cracked pistachio and wilted violet along with a white pen for dots in the flower center.

PRS Flower Third Try Brighter Only

I layered 6 scalloped frame die cuts using gray cardstock for the top layer.  The sentiment from Oh So Fun was stamped in a dark gray ink.  I love the splatter images in the Fall Colors Stamp Set and used one for my card.  So glad you stopped by and hope you’ll check out the DT projects each day this week.  See you next time.

Project Thursday ~ You’re A Fantastic Friend

Hello everyone… Helen is here. For today Project Thursday, I have a fun black and white card for a fantastic friend to share with you all.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett

Stamps I use on my cards today are the new Little Things Stamp Set, Oh So Fun Stamp Set, and Blossom Stamp Set. I started with creating the black and white polkadots and tripes background.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_01

I stamped the polkadots stripe stamp from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad with MISTI and Creative Corners. I stamped one stripe, and then move up the cardstock 1 inch and then stamp again. I repeated the step until the whole panel stamped.

I trimmed the background panel very slightly smaller, I added one of the Mini White Doilies on it, bit off the edge and wrapped it on the edge of the panel,  and added it on an A2 White Card with dries-clear adhesive.

I stamped the flowers from Blossom Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink Pad on a piece of Vellum Paper, then sprinkle them with White Embossing Powder that I mixed it with some Holographic Embossing Powder for extra sparkle. I heat set them with craft heater. Then, I fussy cut the flowers with micro-tip scissors. I used one of them on the jar.

PRS_YoureFantasticFriend_HelenGullett_03

Then I stamped the jar and sentiment from Oh So Fun Stamp Set and also one of the sentiment from Little Things Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on a different white cardstock using MISTI. After that, I fussy cut the jar with micro-tip scissors and trimmed the sentiments into sentiment strips with paper trimmer. I added someVersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on one of the sentiment strips using Sponge Dauber.

I added the jar on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue, next I added the flower on it. Then, I added the sentiment strips on the card with dries-adhesive glue, and the other one with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

My black and white card is done 🙂 I hope you all enjoy it today. THANK YOU for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Ideas {Thinking of You}

Hello friends! I am thrilled to be back with my second installment of Tuesday Ideas! I have a quick card to share with you. I chose to use black and white with just a pop of color! I’m completely in LOVE with this jar from the Oh So Fun stamp set! They are so versatile for so many occasions! I chose to stamp the smaller jar using black  StazOn ink onto a piece of acetate and filled my jar with Simply ButterSoft Pink, and Light Mint buttons. I love how they look behind the acetate. I used a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine to adhere the acetate onto the card. I also stamped a few of the triangle images onto the side of the card from the Oh So Fun set as well. The Daily Thoughts set paired up so nicely for this design! I love all of the small sentiments as well as the larger ones! I added a strip of pattern paper at the bottom to bring it another pop of color.  I hope I have given you a few ideas of different ways to use your stamps paired with acetate!

Tuesday Ideas: Word Play

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa here today showing you more possibilities for your Precious Remembrance stamp sets!  I decided I’d play with words this time around since there are so many fantastic sentiment & font choices available in the Precious Remembrance collection!

I used a combination of stamp sets for this card.  The cute jar is from the Oh So Fun set and was stamped first.  I then filled the jar with the days of the week using the This Moment stamp set.  The larger sentiment was created by combining two separate words from the same set.  I stamped a single red heart from the Love Coupon stamp set in the bottom of the jar and applied some sparkle using a Wink of Stella brush marker.  The entire panel was then popped up using foam dots for a white on white design.

There really are endless possibilities when you start combining words within stamp sets!  Give it a try and you’ll find exciting new ways to use yours!

Until next time, happy stamping!
