Happy Friday everyone!!! I have one last project to share using the new Daily Thoughts stamp set, as well as the new Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces. I have had so much fun creating projects with the Bits & Pieces that I used a couple more for today’s card!
One of my earlier cards had this same little tag combo that I just love and so I decided to use it again. I paired it up with one of the little doilies that you can find in the PRS store. The background was created by stamping the little stars image from the Daily Thoughts set in a light gray ink on light gray cardstock. I trimmed that down, adhered it to my card base and then added the doily and tag. I finished things off with the black twine bow. After I finished my card I realized that it has little things from each of the projects that I have made over the last two months!! I hope you enjoy it!!
Thanks for stopping by… hope you have a wonderful day!!
Hello and happy Friday everyone!!! Have you been enjoying all the fabulous projects that the design team have been creating over the last two months??? I know I have!! Today I have a little black and white number that uses both the Daily Thoughts stamp set and another item from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack. I just love that embellishment pack!!
I started my project by stamping the cassette tape on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then trimmed it out. I cut a strip of black cardstock and adhered it to a white cardstock card base. Since I had decided to use the circle sentiment that says ‘thinking of you’ from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack I stamped the word ‘currently’ in VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed it in white embossing powder. Once that was done I trimmed it out and layered up all my elements just as you see them. Super clean, simple and fun!!
Thanks for stopping by today… I hope you have a wonderful one!!
Hello PRS fans!! I’m here today sharing a fun little gift bag that I put together using some pieces from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces pack, stamps from the Daily Thoughts stamp set and one of the white bags available in the Precious Remembrance Shop store.
I started my project by pulling out some of the pieces that I wanted to use. The color scheme was based on the color of the stars that appear on the ends of two of the word strips. I found some patterned paper that was a good match and created a rosette using a die I have in my collection. To stabilize the rosette I added a circle to the back and then adhered the circular sentiment and the strip sentiments from the Daily Thoughts Bits & Pieces collection. I cut a strip of patterned paper from the same collection as the rosette and stamped it with one of the little square images from the Daily Thoughts set using inks that were a close match to the colors of the stars. Then I used the star images from the Daily Thoughts set to randomly stamp all over the white bag using the same colors. Once I had the bag covered to my liking I adhered the stamp strip. I found baker’s twine in my stash that matched and tied that around the bag making the bow rather large so it would peek out from around the rosette once I adhered it to the bag. A quick gift bag that you could fill with small goodies to gift to a good friend or family member! I hope I inspired you to create a gift bag for a special occasion!
Have a wonderful day!!
Hey There… rosigrl!
Hi friends!! So excited to be back on the PRS blog sharing a project I made using the super fun Totally stamp set! I also used the Love Coupon stamp set and some pieces from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces collection.
I recently purchased a pad of patterned paper from the Prima Zella Teal collection. I saw another crafter using items from this collection and I just fell in love with it. As I thought about what I would make for my project I thought about this pad and decided to use some for my card. I wanted a card that could be given to a man or a woman so I pulled out some paper from the collection that would work for both and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. Some additional paper that has a kraft look to it was die cut with another rectangle die. Pulling colors from the collection I used some VersaMagic inks in Oasis Green to stamp the border and Wheat to stamp the large word totally. The sentiment love you is from the Love Coupon set and actually says I Love you, but I masked off the I before inking up the sentiment and stamping it in VersaFine Onyx Black. The little hearts from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces collection were trimmed out (they were originally circles) and popped them up with foam dimensionals. Before layering everything up on my card base I wrapped some black twine around the patterned paper piece and then tied it with a simple knot. I hope I have given you a good idea for a card to make for a man or woman!!
Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!! Rosemary here on the blog today to share two cards that I made using the Sweet Pea stamp set. Today is a bit of a sad day for me as this is my last post as a member of the Precious Remembrance Shop design team. It was a hard decision to make as Dyane is one of the sweetest people you could ever find and it has been so much fun being a part of the team, but as the poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote “all good things must come to an end”. And so my time with Precious Remembrance Shop has come to an end. But, you will still find me creating with my PRS stamps (which I LOVE) and like the rest of you I will be eagerly awaiting the next release!! Now… on to my first card!
I decided to do some watercoloring and so I stamped one of the little pea pod images on some watercolor paper with VersaMark watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set. (I actually did that twice you will see the other one on the second card.) I then taped my watercolor cardstock to a little wooden cutting board I have and did my watercoloring. Taping the watercolor cardstock down helps to cut down on the warping that occurs when you watercolor. After I had colored the pea pod I added a little wash of color using a lighter shade of green than the one used for the pea pod. I die cut the image along with a tag from some patterned paper. The sentiment was stamped and adhered all the layers to my card base. Finished things off with a bow made from light green and light pink baker’s twine.
The second card uses the same layout the only difference is that I used a sentiment from the PRS set Thanks and created a little banner. Because the patterned paper had a bolder look to it I used dark pink baker’s twine along with the light green to create my little bow. I created the second card as a little ‘thank you’ to Dyane for seeking me out and asking me to join the PRS design team. I will never forget that day and just how excited I was to be asked! It has been a true honor being a part of this wonderful team!! Oh… and one more thing! Did you see the yummy new sequins Dyane has in the shop??? I will be picking up some to add to my growing sequin stash… I hope you do to!!!

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!! Rosemary here to share a little Valentine’s day treat bag that I made using the new Sweet Pea stamp set and the Love Coupon stamp set.
I started by making the little treat bag using a Sizzix treat bag die set. Once that was finished I stamped the coupon image from Love Coupon on some patterned paper and trimmed it out. One of the sweet pea images from Sweet Pea was stamped in the center using dark red ink. A little sentiment from Love Coupon was stamped on additional patterned paper and trimmed it out. The red glitter strip was created by die cut the piece with a die from the treat bag die set. I adhered that to my little bag along with the coupon and then added the twine tied in a bow. The little hearts that were die cut from the strip were randomly added to the bag as well. I adhered the sentiment strip and then added the little arrow paper clip. The little hearts in the corner were stamped in dark red ink using an image from Sweet Pea. This little treat bag would be even easier to put together using a pre-made treat bag.

Hello Precious Remembrance Shop fans!!! Rosemary here with my first post of the new year!! Have you all be enjoying all the projects the design team has made with the newly released and super adorable Sweet Pea stamp set?? I know I have!! Today I have a card to share using that very stamp set! During this past Christmas I learned that my niece is going to have a baby!! My sister (her mom) is over the moon to finally be a gramma! When the new Sweet Pea stamp set arrived in my mailbox I immediately thought of my niece and created a card that would be perfect for a baby shower. Now… I don’t know if my niece is having a boy or a girl yet, but changing up the color scheme would be super easy!
I started this card by picking out some patterned paper to use and chose some papers from a couple of different My Mind’s Eye paper pads and did a little bit of paper piecing using one of the sweet little pea pod images on a white cardstock rectangle. The sentiment was added using the same green ink that the images were stamped in. The mat for that panel was die cut from some pink patterned paper. I die cut the lattice panel from white cardstock, attached it to a pink cardstock base and then adhered the image panel. A sprinkling of the pale green sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Sweet Pea sequin mix were added and I was done.
Thanks for stopping by today… and don’t forget you still have three opportunities to win this new set and the Sweet Pea sequin mix!

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!! Rosemary here with one last Christmas card using Sketchy Christmas. I have had so much fun creating different cards using this fun set!! This time I did manage to make a card that wasn’t the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, lol!!
For this card I used some papers from the BasicGrey Aspen Frost pad and created a snowy little scene. The snowflake paper was die cut and then a off white cardstock panel was cut using the same rectangle die. I then die cut that panel using some border dies to create my “snowy” hills. I stamped the bottom hill with the sentiment and then layered them, popping up the bottom one for dimension. The trees were stamped on the olive green paper using brown ink (which ended up looking olive!), trimmed out and adhered to the hills. I added some Ice Stickles glitter glue to create a snowy look on the ground around a few of the trees as well as on the hills and then added the holographic snowflakes to the tops of each tree as a finishing touch. I quite like how it turned out!! I’m adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: die cuts.
Thanks for stopping by today… wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
Happy Wednesday PRS fans!!! Rosemary here with another card using the Sketchy Christmas stamp set. Did you pick up some yummy new PRS stamps this past weekend? I hope you did!! Dyane sure had some fantastic deals going on. I have another Christmas card to share and I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to make another traditional red and green Christmas card, but guess what??? I did, lol!! I recently purchased pads of Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye and Pink Paislee. Alot of papers in both pads are done in traditional reds and greens and since they were within close reach I just had to use them.
I die cut some woodgrain paper from the My Mind’s Eye Sleighbells 6×6 pad as my main panel and a piece of red patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Yuletide 6×6 pad as a mat. The little trees were cut from the patterned that was found on the reverse side of the woodgrain piece and then adhered to the card. I added the sentiment in red, a few red sequins and I was done. Another easy to mass produce Christmas card.

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!! Rosemary here with another card to share using the Sketchy Christmas stamp set. I am obviously in a traditional red and green Christmas card mood, lol!! Some of that has to do with the fact that I’m trying to use what I find close by in my little crafty area and one of the things I found was a piece of polka dot patterned paper in an olive green color. I grabbed a piece of red and white patterned paper, some inks in corresponding colors, some dies and I was ready to create. The layout is based on the current Sweet Sunday Sketch so I will be posting my card there.
The sketch is pretty straight forward. I layered up the patterned papers on my white cardstock card base and then after die cutting the white circle stamped the tree. A little sequin snowflake was added to the top of the tree. The sentiment strips were stamped in red ink, trimmed out and adhered to the tree. A little bit of Diamond stickles was added to the base of the tree and dots added to the tree for a bit of sparkle. Super simple and easy to reproduce in other color schemes.
