Design It Monday ~ {Thankful for You}

Thankful, grateful, happy, delighted, pleased…just a few words to express how I feel about your love and support here on the PRS blog. I’ve created this card for all of you.

I used the Fall Colors stamp set (one of my absolute favorites!) to create today’s card. All three leaf images were inked up and randomly stamped onto and ivory panel. I embossed some of the little splatters with Versa Mark ink and gold embossing powder. After die cutting the panel, it was added to a dry embossed card base.  The sentiment was also gold embossed then framed with the cute sketchy rectangle from the set.



See what I mean? Isn’t this a beautiful stamp set!

I would like to wish all of you from the US a Happy Thanksgiving!
To all of our other friends, I wish you happiness!

GATHER Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone. I’m sharing another fall layout I created using Precious Remembrance Shop’s Fall Colors Stamp Set. I used pretty papers from Pink Paislee and die cuts from Vicki Boutin’s newest collection. The die cuts are beautiful. I received some from Scrapbooking & Card’s Today’s stampler and I think I need to check out the actual collection. 🙂


I stamped the leaf patterned on kraft paper using brown/pink ink then colored them in using markers. Aren’t they pretty?!


I added a few tags at the top to add a few more layers.


I stamped the “hi there! and autumn” sentiment onto the labels. Oh and I almost forgot about the “thankful for you…” sentiment below the photo. This stamp set is perfect for fall! And they are available in the shop! Click here.


A few close-ups of the embellishments. I went a little crazy with the layout. I tend to add stuff until I am pleased with the layout. 🙂



Thanks so much for visiting today!

Design It Monday ~ (Sentiment Focal}

Hello friends, welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I have a quick and simple Christmas card for you today where I’ve made the sentiment my focal point. Take a look…

I’ve used the large pretty sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. It was stamped with evergreen ink, then die cut with an older Spellbinders die. I added pine here and there around the edges. The same ink was used, but it was stamped off first to give a lighter appearance.

I added a panel of patterned paper to the card base before popping the die cut on. This went together quickly and is a perfect solution for mass production cards!


Thanks for stopping by, we love it when you do!

Let it Snow Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Sunday stampers! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the “Oh Christmas Stamp Set” and “Sketchy Christmas” stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop. I took these photos of Edward in January. He was so excited that we finally got a little snow… he was even dabbing in the snow. Silly kid.


To begin, I sprayed three different Coloration Sprays from Art Anthology (Juicy, Salmon, and Raider) onto white cardstock.

I matted three 2″x2″ photos on patterned paper and placed them on the layout to determine a design I was happy with. Once I had the placement of the photos finalized, I stamped the trees to frame the photos and added lots of pretty embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio.




I really like the font of this stamp. Isn’t it pretty!


I did not include any journaling since most of the embellishments used, included sentiments. 🙂


Thanks so much for visiting today! Come check out my video to see how this layout came together!
