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:

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here. Today, I have a CAS Holiday card to share with you all. I know we are just stepping into Fall Season, but I thought it is a good time to start the Holiday projects, too.

We receive Christmas cards and gifts in the Holiday season, it is always nice to have some thank you cards ready to send to express our gratitude for their kindness and love.

It is very simple to create this card.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_03

I started with stamping the wreath from Joy Stamp Set on white cardstock using VersaFine Clair – Green Oasis. I stamped it multiple times. After stamping the wreaths, I added some red dots on the wreaths for the berries using craft stylus and VersaFine Clair – Glamorous.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_04

I dried all the stamped images with craft heater and then fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

On a A2 white card, I stamped the stripes from the Joy Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair – Nocturne (black) and my Mini MISTI.

Then, I stamped the thanks sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Glamorous. I trimmed the sentiment in to a banner strip that would fit on top of the wreath.

PRS_HolidayThankYouCard_HelenGullett_02

I added the wreath on the card with 3D foam tape and then I added the sentiment banner strip on top of the wreath with adhesive glue.

It is done. This Holiday Thank You Card is quick and easy to mass-produce. I hope this inspire you to start your Holiday projects.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Thank You In Green

I’m easing into Fall today with a color combo of ivory, two shades of green and soft gold.  I began by repeatedly stamping an image from the Thanks stamp set in light green ink on an ivory panel. PRS DT SeptThe focal point was made by stamping another image from the same set in a darker green ink on a strip of light green cardstock.  By using a stamp positioner, I was then able to stamp with Versamark and emboss with clear powder.  The mat is a slightly larger strip of  darker green cardstock.  I colored the three hearts with soft gold glitter glue for a touch of sparkle. PRS DT Sept close up I wanted a fairly flat card to mail, but needed some dimension since the card and background are both ivory cardstock.  This was easily done by adding a couple extra cardstock layers under the panel.  I did use foam tape for the green strip for even more interest.

Always good to have thank you cards on hand, so why not head over to the shop and pick up this fun set.  While you’re there check out all the great stamps and products.  See you next time.

Inspire Me Friday {thank you so much}

Happy Friday everyone!   Hope you are enjoying the last day of August!  I have another thank you card to share with you today.   This one uses more of the fun images from the Thanks stamp set.  I seem to be on a mission to use all of the images in the set, lol!   But there are so many that it is hard not to make cards using all of them!

prs thank you 2

This time I used the fun word search image and the thank you so much image.  I stamped the word search four times on some light blue patterned paper and then trimmed them out.  I adhered the pieces to a panel of white cardstock.  The thank you so much image was stamped on a green patterned paper and then trimmed it out.  I added diamond Stickles to all the hearts and once the Stickles were dry I adhered the piece as you see.  The panel was then adhered to my card base.

Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

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.

PreciousRemembranceShop-IHeartU-02

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!

Inspire Me Friday {thank you}

Happy Friday everyone!  Wow… August is just whizzing by isn’t it?  I’m popping in today with a set of thank you notes I made using the Precious Remembrance Shop Thanks stamp set.   I love how this fun set has so many way to say thank you!

thank you 4

I started my project by going through my extensive collection of 6×6 paper pads and found one that had enough coordinating paper to create my cards.  I wanted to create a set of cards that could be used by a guy or a gal so I looked for papers that would work for both.  I die cut the little notebook page from one coordinating sheet and then cut the other pieces.   I stamped one of the fun sentiments from the set on the notebook pages with gray ink.  Once that was done I simply assembled my cards in short order.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Thank You So Much

It’s always good to have some thank you cards on hand.  For today’s cards I used stamps from two PRS sets:  Thanks and Oh Christmas.PRS DT August 3 again better (2)Just changing colors gives the same design a totally different look & keeps it interesting to stamp multiple cards.   I began by die cutting two white and one kraft note cards.

My first card has an elegant feel using metallic green and gold inks.  You could add some gems or sequins, but I decided just to tie on some white and gold twine. PRS DT August Elegant again (1)
The other white note card is a Christmas thank you with it’s red and green color combo.  This time I stamped the sentiment in black & colored in the little hearts with a red marker.  Again I left off embellishments simply tying on red and white twine.
PRS DT August Christmas no wmThe kraft note card gives a totally different look which I think is especially nice for Fall.  I first stamped the branches in white pigment ink and rubbed lightly with my finger.  Then I stamped again using the same brown dye ink as the sentiment.  Instead of coloring the little hearts, I just added dots with a fine point white Sharpie.
PRS DT August Kraft no wm

So there you have it–three different looks using the same images.  So many options I can make a lot more and never get bored!  Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next time.

Project Thursday ~ Thank You CAS Card Set

PreciousRemembrance-FallThankYouCardSet-HelenGullett-01

Hello everyone… Happy Thursday! I hope you all have been fun time enjoying Summer with your loved ones. Today, for Project Thursday, I have a set of Thank You cards to share with you. I created these cards using the Thanks Stamp Set and Fall Colors Stamp Set.

I love Summer, but I cannot wait to enjoy Fall, soon! The Fall Color combos is my inspiration to create the backgrounds for these CAS cards. Started with stamped the leaves and dots splatters images from the Fall Colors Stamp Set on watercolor papers using VersaMark Ink Pad and then I sprinkled some of white/glitter embossing powder. I heat set the images with craft heater.

Using medium round brush, I added clean water on the paper, just randomly wet the paper. Then, I picked up the yellow, orange, red, and green watercolor paints with the brush and added them on the wet paper. I let the water did the work to blend the colors together. This watercoloring technique is called wet-on-wet. The heat-embossed images resist the watercolor paints, and this is called the heat-embossing/watercolor resist technique.

PreciousRemembrance-FallThankYouCardSet-HelenGullett-02

I speed up the drying process by using craft heater from the back of the watercolor paper. This way is safer for the heat-embossed images to not to melt again. After all panels dried, I cut them using one of the Crazy Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the faux stitch border image from the Thanks Stamp Set directly on the white cards with VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad. I also stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and then trimmed them with scissors.

I added the watercolored panels on the center of the card bases with dries-clear adhesive glue. Next, I added the sentiments on the card with 3D foam adhesive. I added some clear sequins to embellish the cards. And… They are done.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all are inspired to create. See you all next time!

Inspire Me Friday {i heart you}

Hello friends!  Rosemary here with a card that I made using the super cute Precious Remembrance Shop set called Thanks.  This set has so many fun images that can be used to create thank you cards.   I used several images to create my card.

copper heart 4

I used the color combo from Color Throwdown, as well as the layout from Freshly Made Sketches to help me create my card.  It is a little hard to tell, but I used copper embossing powder on the four circular images.  I took a close up of the embossing so that hopefully you can see it better.   I die cut all the images, as well as a panel of white cardstock and then placed the panel in my stamping tool, arranged the circles and then stamped the sentiment in VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink.   All the circles were adhered using foam tape and then I attached the panel to a black cardstock based.

I finished off the card by die cutting another panel of white cardstock and stamping the ‘thanks’ sentiment in the bottom corner with Nocturne ink and adhering it inside.

There you have it… a clean and simple thank you that would be easy to reproduce in any color combination!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Thanks

Welcome back to another edition of Create It Wednesday.  This month we’re focusing on the terrific PRS stamp set called simply, Thanks.  Lots of fun images to use for a wide variety of card styles.  The darling circle with hearts caught my attention, so I used it for the focal point. PRS DT August
I stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy & used a circle die to cut it out.  I inked a slightly larger circle die cut with the same ink & added the heart circle using foam tape.  For the background I stamped a frame in Brilliance Starlite Black using the thank you border stamp.  I used VersaMagic Oasis Green to stamp the little thanks, except for the tiny heart which I stamped in the poppy ink.  PRS DT Aug close upThe splatters are done with stamps in the Fall Colors stamp set using the green & poppy  inks.  I added Stickles to the white heart as well as a few dots on the background.  A soft gray cardstock was attached to the card front before adding the stamped panel.  Hope I’ve given you some ideas for thank you cards using Thanks and other great PRS stamp sets.  See you next time.
