Happy Holidays Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone! Who’s ready for the holidays? Today, I’m sharing a holiday layout I created using the Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set along with some Oh Christmas Bits & Pieces.

Merry Christmas_Precious Remembrance Shop

To begin, I sprayed Colorations Sprays by Art Anthology onto white cardstock. The Indigo and Peacock Feathers sprays go perfectly with the die cuts. They are very close in colors. A perfect match if you ask me. I used the “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” sentiment as titles/sub-titles for the layout. I stamped the “Happy Holidays” sentiment on white cardstock using black ink and then I cut the image out using scissors. I used foam squares to pop it up off the page a bit.

I used a few die cuts, enamel dots and puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. The embellishments worked with the color scheme I was working with. I added a few pieces of red because when I think of Christmas,  think of the colors green and red.

Love the little scribble line from the Sketchy Christmas Stamp set. I used it just below sentiments at the bottom.

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.

Project_20191112_0002 copy

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…

Project_20191110_0001 copy

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!

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.

DSC_6380

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!

Happy Halloween Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone! Nicole here with a fun Halloween Layout I created using my scraps. It’s been awhile since I’ve dug through my scraps and it felt good to put them to good use!

DSC_5512

 

Initially, I was going to turn the photos to black and white since the purple did not go with the patterns, but I decided to leave it alone and add a little purple here and there…

DSC_5495

I added some of the circle images from the stamp set within the empty circles to make it more playful!

I used the tiny row of circles to create lines for my journaling.

Design It Monday ~ {Beware}!

Hello! October is nearing it’s end and with that comes Halloween. Today, I’m sharing one more card featuring the Beware stamp set.

Project_20191020_0002 copy

I had the die cut banner on my desk, so I decided to begin there.

Those little Washi Pieces from the set were stamped first followed by the Beware sentiment.

Next came the polka dot borders serving as the dangle-y portion of the spider webs.

I stamped the web images then fussy cut them.

Project_20191020_0003 copy

After deciding where the banner would be placed, I stamped a trio of soft gray webs then adhered the banner. A little Halloween Washi tape and rhinestones were my finishing touches.

There’s still time to add the Beware set to your stamp collection ~ it’s only $6.99!

Wonderful Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Love Coupon Stamp Set. Just recently, I became an auntie and I am so excited. Edward and I are in love with Henry! He is so precious.

DSC_4915

To begin, I sprayed white cardstock with pink and tan spray mists (Colorations Sprays) by Art Anthology.

DSC_4922_2

I used a circle template to draw two circles overlapping each other in the center of the layout and then I cut the butterflies out from the patterned paper and mounted them on the layout using foam squares to add dimension to the layout.

I added a few additional embellishments here and there along with some stamped images. Love how soft and pretty this layout turned out.

Here is a close-up of the stamping at the bottom.

Design It Monday ~ {No tricks, just treats}!

Hey there! It’s Lisa here today sharing a fun idea for a quick and simple Halloween goodie bag. Why buy pre-made bags when you can jazz up one of our Plain-White or Plain-Kraft Flat Paper Bags from the shop.

Project_20190915_0001-2 copy

First up, I added a strip of Washi Tape to the bag. Next came the stamped star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. Using a circle die cut border, I stamped three images from the Beware Stamp Set set using a smokey gray ink.  I stamped and punched out two orange Jack-o-lanterns then added them to the strip with foam tape. The strip of circles begins and ends with a star from the Totally Stamp Set. No circle border die, no problem. Just use punches or die cut circles for the same look.

Project_20190915_0003 copy

I finished things off with two Trick or Treats sentiments (Beware Stamp Set) and some glossy bat stickers from my stash.

Project_20190915_0005 copy

Add those treats and you’re good to go!
