Fall Home Decor

Hello We R Memory Keepers fan! Soraya here today to share a fun  tutorial to make a home decor using the Precision Press Advanced and an floral Layered Stamp.

The Precision Press Advanced is the perfect tool to create layered stamps with various colors! I decided to go with this floral pattern to make my home decor. Each stamp is used with the ink pad set CMYK which allows you to layer the colors from the lightest to the darkest. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. They are used in traditional printing precesses to achieve a full range of colors.

Use the grid on the Acrylic Stamping Block to place your stamp then use the same measure to place the others. So fun! And look how the final print is texturized!

Repeat the process once again then cut out the flowers with the Detail Scissors. Both prints will be stuck one to another.

To make a lot of small fall leaves, I used a clear stamp that I placed on an acrylic block with coral/orange ink. Once they dried well, I cut them all out with my small scissors.

Since my home decor will be on a bamboo circle, I decided to make the tittle using the Happy Jig with the pink gold wire. I left some free wire on both ends to attach on the bamboo circle.

Time to assemble and decorate it! First of all I used my mini glue gun to place the ribbon all around the bamboo circle. Then, I glued the previously stamped flowers and leaves on it. And finally I added some resin flowers and completed the tittle  “Time to FALL in Love”. And voilà!

St. Patrick’s Day Stamped Cupcake Toppers

Hello We R friends! Aly Dosdall here again. St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon, and at our house it’s a fun day where we celebrate mostly with food! We die our milk green, cook green eggs and ham, and always have a yummy green dessert. This year, I’m thinking it’s going to be cupcakes.

And to dress up those cupcakes, I’ve got a fun idea for some St. Patrick’s Day stamped cupcake toppers featuring the CMYK Stamps + Inks, and the new Acrylic Block Set. I thought this CMYK layered stamp set would be perfect for the holiday since it includes all the colors of the rainbow.

I started by stamping the design from the Hello CMYK Stamp Set. These stamps have a cool pixelated look and work by layering the four basic colors together one on top of the other.

I substituted the “hello” sentiment in the middle with the “lucky” sentiment from the Vicki Boutin Moth Dies and Stamps Set. I used some washi tape to cover the “hello” sentiment when inking the black layer of the design, and then removed the tape before stamping so the sentiment didn’t show up.

Once I finished stamping the toppers, I cut them out with the new Detail Scissors from the Hand Tools collection, and then hot glued them onto some paper straws with the new USB Power Mini Glue Gun. I love that this glue gun is portable since I don’t need to worry about connecting to an outlet. I simply used my phone charger–awesome!

What I love about the CMYK Stamp Sets is that they really are a statement piece on your craft projects. They’re perfect focal points and really don’t need much embellishment.

I finished off my cupcakes with some wraps I made out of Bazzill Basics Gold Foil Cardstock with the DIY Party Board. I love how they turned out! Thanks for stopping by–I’ll see you next time.

Stamped Bookmarks

Hi there, We R friends, Laura here today. I must admit I am a little bit of a paper hoarder. If I have scraps from projects, I usually save anything that is left over. This year I have been trying to use up some of my stash. Making stamped bookmarks is the perfect way to use up those smaller pieces of scrap cardstock. My bookmarks are two inches by six inches.

The fun part about using stamps is you can layer them on your project to create an entirely new look. When I am working with stamps that I will be stamping off the edge of my design, I place a piece of scrap paper under my cardstock. I use washi tape to secure both my bookmark and the alignment frame, so nothing shifts.

When using the CMYK stamps, start by placing your K stamp on the acrylic block. The acrylic block stamping set has three different sizes to make it easy to find one that will work with all your clear acrylic stamps. Apply black ink and place the stamp in the frame.

Repeat this process with the M, C, and Y stamps and coordinating inks in that order. I did two roses on my bookmark with each one going off the cardstock a bit.

For the layered stamps you follow the same process of first placing your alignment frame on your project. But for these stamps you can completely customize your project by using any color stamp ink you want!

For the hello bookmark I used the cyan and magenta ink pads. I started by using the alignment guide to create the layered hello part of the stamp. Then I used the floral stamp to free hand a pattern around it on the rest of the bookmark.

On the layered camera stamp, I started by stamping each camera in black. Then, I used different colors to create the inner designs. I stamped the cameras on an angle to make the bookmark a little more interesting.

To finish off the bookmarks, use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the top of the bookmark. Thread ribbon or twine through the hole.

Precision Press Card Set

Hello there! Tessa Buys here with a set of cards created with my new favorite We R Memory Keepers tool – the Precision Press.

precision-press-cards-1

When it comes to my stamping abilities, “precision” is not a word that comes to mind. I never seem to be very happy with my results. However, the Precision Press is a total game changer for me! Every stamp has been crisp, clear, and exactly in the right position. And playing with the CYMK inks and stamps has made the experience even more fun!

precision-press-cards-2

To demonstrate how easy it was to stamp this floral design, these photos are of my very first attempt. The instructions were simple to follow and the results fantastic!

precision-press-cards-3

I decided to fussy cut the design because I wanted to adhere it over several strands of string.

precision-press-cards-4

I used foam adhesive to attach the cut out pieces over the string. The card front is also attached to the card base with foam adhesive.

precision-press-cards-5

I used the We R Memory Keepers typewriter and some Typeset stickers to create my sentiments.

precision-press-cards-6

I finished off each card with a sprinkle of We R Memory Keepers sequin stickers. I love the subtle sparkle that white sequins have set on white cardstock.

Thanks to the Precision Press, this non-stamper may just become a stamping pro after all. If you’re a reluctant stamper like me, I think you’ll fall in love, too! Happy creating!
