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.

Create It Wednesday~Christmas Cards

Once again it’s time to ramp up holiday crafting, so I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  PRS DT Nov both no wmI used three PRS sets including Everyday Stamp Set, Sketchy Christmas and Joy Stamp Set.  The A2 size card was done by stamping the large background image from Everyday Stamp Set using Distress Ink faded jeans on a watercolor panel.  PRS DT Nov first no wmThen I spritzed with water & let the ink spread on it’s own.  When it was dry I stamped a Sketchy Christmas tree in Distress Oxide lucky clover and Merry Christmas in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  A stitched rectangle was dry embossed for a frame and I popped up the Happy New Year sentiment strip.  To finish things off, I added silver confetti to match the silver mat.  Sometimes it’s fun to make a smaller card, like my second one which is 3 1/2 x 4  3/4.  PRS DT Nov second no wmAgain I stamped the background image from Everyday Stamp Set.  This time I used pumice stone Distress Ink & blended with a wet brush.  Kind of looks like mountains–perfect for a modern, rustic design.  I stamped the triangle tree from Sketchy Christmas three times in lucky clover Distress Oxide and the word Joy from the Joy Stamp Set in Distress Oxide candied apple.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added a couple extra layers of cardstock for dimension.  I sponged the pumice stone ink on the card front before adding the panel.  Hope I’ve given you some inspiration for your holiday cardmaking.  See you next time.

Project Thursday ~ A Thank You Card

Hello everyone… November is here! In this season of thanksgiving, there are many ways we can express our gratitude. Today, for our Project Thursday, I have a Thank You card to share with you all that I created using the new Everyday Stamp Set and Fall Colors Stamp Set.

PRS-ProjectThursday-ThankYou-CAS-HelenGullett

I stamped the leaves on vellum paper with VersaFine Clair – Summertime, sprinkled with some clear embossing powder, and heat it up with craft heater. After that I fussy cut the leaves with scissors.

For the sentiment, I stamped on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Pinecone and then I trimmed it into a sentiment strip that fits on top of the wreath.

PRS-ProjectThursday-ThankYou-CAS02-HelenGullett

On a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed into 4 inch x 5.5 inch. I added some gold splatter on it with Finetec Gold Paint and small flat waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and added it on a kraf card with adhesive glue.

I found this paper rope in my stash box and I used it as the wreath. I shaped it into circles and added it on the card with adhesive glue. I held it down until the glue dried with couple acrylic blocks for couple of minutes.

I added couple of the vellum embossed leaves on the wreath with adhesive glue, and then I added the sentiment strip on it with 3D foam tape.

I hope you all like this clean-and-simple card with a twist of layers. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Inspire Me Friday – {happy halloween}

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you had a great week!  I’m popping in today with a fun little Halloween card that I made using four different (yep… four!) Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets!   The four sets are Beware (currently on sale for $7.99!), Fall Colors, Positive Thoughts and New Day.

October 31 3

As I thought about what I was going to make for this week’s post I went through all of my PRS stamp sets.  I knew I was going to use the Beware set, but wanted to mix things up a bit and when I saw the Positive Thoughts set I thought the circles image would work perfectly with the icon images from the Beware set.  So I started playing around with those two sets and working out my layout.   As I worked on the design I threw in the dots images from the New Day set and really liked what I saw.  I pulled out traditional fall/Halloween colors and got to work putting together my final design.   Once all the stamping was done I decided that the card needed just a little bit more so I added in the little splatter images from the Fall Colors set using Delicata Celestial Copper ink.  You can’t tell it is copper in the photo, but it looks really pretty in real life.    The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Halloween/spooky so I’m going to add this to their gallery.   And make sure you come back to the blog tomorrow as there will be a fun hop going on to celebrate the release of a new Precious RemembranceShop stamp set!  YAY!!

Have a wonderful day!

Inspire Me Friday – {thankful for you}

Happy Friday everyone!  Rosemary here with one final thank you inspired card.  Fall is almost upon us so for this card I pulled out one of my most favorite Precious Remembrance Shop stamp sets to create my card.  That set is the beautiful Fall Colors.  This set has three gorgeous leaf images and lots of lovely sentiments.

3 leaves

As you can see this one is all stamping using a lovely fall palette of red, orange and green.  The grid image was actually stamped in a kraft colored ink, but it is readinig gray in the photo.   I started by stamping the grid image three times and then added in the leaves in red, orange and green.  I added in some small splatters using two different splatter images from the set and the same inks.    To finish off the card I stamped the label image in the kraft ink and then stamped the sentiment from the set partially inside the label.   The panel was then die cut and adhered to my light gray card base.   If you don’t own the Fall Colors stamp set already, you should really consider adding it to your stamp collection.  It can be used for all four seasons and not just fall!

Have a wonderful day!

Create It Wednesday~Paper Weaving

Hello everyone & welcome to another Create It Wednesday.  It’s been a long time since I’ve made a card with paper weaving and I thought the polka dot strip in the new Little Things stamp set would be fun to use.
PRS DT June oneMy inks are Delicata Sapphire Blue and Ruby Red which provide a lovely shimmer.  I stamped the image multiple times in each color.  Then I added some repositionable adhesive to the top of a panel of cardstock and lined up all the red strips side by side.  Next I began weaving with the blue strips–fun and easy!  When all the pieces were in place, I attached it with permanent adhesive and trimmed off the edges to the size I wanted.  The woven panel was added to a slightly larger white card.PRS DT June one close up

I used the same inks for my sentiment, stamping the big word from Happy Art onto a die cut vellum circle.  The encouraging words from Little Things were stamped & trimmed into a small strip which I attached over the circle.  This flat, cheerful card could be for a guy or a gal–maybe for someone who just got a promotion or is starting a new career.  Be sure to check out all the wonderful products in the PRS Store and I’ll see you soon.

Create It Wednesday~Triangle Medallion

Hello everyone & welcome to another Create It Wednesday post.  Hope you caught our new release Blog Hop & now we’re sharing more projects using Little Things.   I thought it’d be fun to create a medallion using the larger image of 3 triangles.  PRS DT May lastUsing a stamp positioner makes it very easy since you just move the cardstock & leave the stamp in place.  I’ve loved Brilliance inks since they were introduced many years ago & picked 3 beautiful pearlescent colors:  Lavender, Sky Blue & Jade.  Before moving to the next color, I changed the position of the stamp.  There are infinite possibilities & each would give a different look, not to mention changing up the ink colors.  The sentiment circle from School Days was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black, clear embossed & punched out.  I attached 2 more circles to give a bit of dimension & attached it over a nest of silver thread.  The panel was matted with silver & lavender cardstock before adhering it to a white card.  Didn’t seem to need additional embellishments & is pretty flat for mailing.  Little Things is a great stamp set with fun images & wonderful sentiments–hope you’ll check it out.

Create It Wednesday~Congrats To You

Hello everyone!  I’m back with another project using the versatile Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  I love how you can create whatever sentiment you want.  This time I simply stamped the letters onto a die cut circle using Distress Ink gathered twigs.  PRS DT April 2 sentimentAfter coloring them in with a marker, I sponged the circle with Distress Oxide fossilized amber, leaving the center white.  The edges were sponged with the gathered twigs to help add definition over the background.  Leaf images work well for both masculine and feminine cards, but this one is for a male relative.  Color combinations that might not work for clothing can make beautiful cards.  Here I used Distress Oxide fossilized amber, cracked pistachio & twisted citron.  PRS DT April 2

I assigned a color to each of the leaves in the Fall Colors stamp set & simple rotated them around the edge of a square card.  If you look close you will see I did first and second generation stamping each time.  PRS DT April 2 close up 1To be sure the circle tied in with the background, I sponged the card edges with fossilized amber and gathered twigs before adding the brown splatters.  Keeping with the masculine theme, I just tied on brown twine & added a wooden burst.  The circle was mounted with thin fun foam giving a bit of dimension.  PRS DT April 2 Close up 2Hope I’ve inspired you to use beautiful leaf images all year long and maybe try out some different color combinations.

The PRS Store now has inks, so be sure to check them out.  This month with a qualifying $30 purchase, you will automatically get 10 stamp storage pouches included in your package–how great is that?!  Happy crafting and I’ll see you soon.

Inspire Me Friday – {Let the Music Play}

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!

PRS Doily 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!!

Inspire Me Friday {Wedding Card}

Happy Friday, everyone! A friend of my family is getting married tomorrow and I thought the Calendar Stamp Set would be the perfect tool to personalize a wedding card. I started off with a dark blue card base and stamped a panel of cream colored cardstock with flowers from the Papertrey Ink (PTI) Pretty Peonies stamp set.

I then stamped and embossed a small die-cut panel with the “new couple” sentiment, which is from the PTI Beautiful Butterflies stamp set. Underneath this sentiment, I stamped the couple’s wedding date. Blue ribbon and a couple of buttons pull this card together!

I also decorated the inside of card with a few flowers and the date stamp again. I hope I’ve inspired you to look for ways to add personalization to your projects by means of adding a date. The Calendar Stamp Set is perfect for this and I’m so glad I have it to use for future weddings, birthdays and graduations!
