Stamped Card and Envelope

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly Crawford here with a card and matching envelope. When you are stamping, its wonderful to be able to not only create custom-colored images, but also coordinating projects like envelopes. We R Memory Keepers has all the tools to help you create stamped cards with ease.

My card began with color inspiration from the Cedar Lane 6×6 Paper Pad. From there, I choose the Rose Layered Stamp set to create my card.

The layered stamp sets include a guide image. It is a stamp that assists in perfectly lining up your images. Because of my project, today I did not use that guide image, but it is very handy. The other three images in the set include layers. These layers build up the image and create a lot of depth.

You can see how the layers build upon one another. Also notice the acrylic block I am using to stamp my image. I really like the lines on the block. The lines meet in the middle and go all the way across. Having those lines really helps line up your images.

While I was stamping my main image for my card, I also decided to stamp a liner for my envelope.

I stamped my rose image repeatedly onto white text-weight paper.  (so as to not add bulk to my envelope) Using my Envelope Punch Board, I created a simple liner. What a special touch to add, with ease!

I trimmed my second stamped rose out and adhered it with foam. This added a ton of depth to my card. The finishing touch to the card was a bit of Stitch Happy Multimedia Baker’s Twine.

Butterfly Favor Boxes with Layered Stamps

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today bringing you a quick favor box made with the 1,2, 3 Punch Board and the Butterfly Layered Stamp Set.

Butterfly Favor Boxes with Layered Stamps by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I love to make favor boxes for parties or family events and stamps really make the job easy because you can have all the favors look the same with just a few supplies.

For this favor box I used my 1,2, 3 Punch Board to make a Small size box. All the instructions are already on the board so it is super easy! I started with a 6 inch paper to use my 12 x 12 inch paper completely.

How cute is this polka dot cardstock from Bazzill Paper?  There are a lot of colors to choose from!

To have a cohesive look I choose the Layered Butterfly Stamp and made them in the same color as my box. These new Acrylic Blocks come in three different sizes and have guides in the middle so you can align your stamps perfectly!

Next, I used my Vicki Boutin stamp set and stamped a sentiment using the black CMYK ink.  After that I punched a tag with my Clear Cut Punch.

Finally I used my Ribbon Cutter to cut and seal three different ribbons.

To assemble the box I placed some candies inside and embellished it with the ribbon, tag and butterfly. I love the tone on tone look of these favor boxes!

These little favor boxes are super cute and with the help of your favorite Punch Board and some stamps you can make them very quickly.

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.

Stamped Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

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.

Stamped Bookmarks by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

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.

Holiday Cards with the Layered Stamps

Hi there! Aly Dosdall here again, and today I’m sharing a holiday card set that I made using the Gifts Layered Stamps and some festive papers from the Falala collection by our sister brand, Crate Paper. Check it out!

Holiday Cards with Layered Stamps by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

If you haven’t worked with the Layered Stamps yet, you should give it a try! They’re so much fun, and so easy to use. I’m not an expert stamper, but I really enjoyed creating with this stamp set. I love that I can customize the colors for my image so it coordinates perfectly with my project.

Holiday Cards with Layered Stamps by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

There are three stamps in this set, and each builds off of the one before to create a multi color image that adds dimension to your projects. They’re numbered, so you know exactly what order to stamp them in. Start with the lightest color for stamp 1, and move sequentially to the darkest color for stamp 3.

We R Memory Keepers Layered Stamps

The Layered Stamps include a guide that helps you align each stamp correctly so that your final image is a success. The guide really takes the guesswork out of the process–I love it!

I added a frame around each stamped image that I made with the Frame Punch Board and some papers from the Falala collection. Then I used a couple of die cut stickers from the collection for my sentiment and finished off each card with a few Sequin Stickers.

Precision Press Valentine Cards by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The Precision Press is perfect for beginner stampers, you can stamp two or three times without risking to move your design. For this cards I created a background with my stamp, my Precision Press worked perfectly because you can see exactly where you are stamping!

Create a  heart mask with lightweight paper and put some white cardstock underneath. Hold everything with some washi tape.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-2

Place your stamp over your paper, close the Precision Press and stamp all 3 layers of your design.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-3

Once you are done move your stamp repeat the process.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-4

Fill your design with flowers and remove the card.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-5

Use your Typecast Typewriter to add a sentiment and a sewing machine to make some borders for your heart shape.

valetines-cards-by-eva-pizarro-6

I did two different cards. For the first one, I cut my design and adhere it to a folded piece of patterned paper. I did a zig zag stich all around my heart shape and used papers from the My Funny Valentine collection by Pebbles Inc.

For the other card I stitched all around my heart to make the heart stand out and then layered some patterned papers on the back.

I love how these cards turned out! Now you can create your own patterns with different colors and stamps! The Precision Press is going to make everything easier!

Valentine Cupcake Toppers

Hello, We R Memory Keeper fans, Laura here. The holidays are the perfect time to share a special little treat with the ones you love. Today, I am going to show you how to make these fun sweet Valentine cupcake toppers using the new Precision Press and the Typecast typewriter.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-1

I started with the butterfly stamp set. Line up the guide on the precision press. I aligned mine in the upper right corner. This way I could add my paper flush along the edges of the lower guide to do multiple stamp designs with ease.

I created multiples of the same design. I aligned a square of white cardstock in the corner. I started using the peach colored stamp pad with stamp number one.I repeated this process on several sheets of plain white cardstock.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-2

In between stamps, I wiped off the guide with a baby wipe and dried with a cloth. Then, I used the pink stamp pad with the second stamp.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-3

Again, I did all my butterflies with stamp two before moving on.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-4

Lastly, I used the navy stamp pad and stamp three to create the outline of the butterfly. Then, I allowed all the stamped images to dry. Once they were completely dry, I cut around the edges of each butterfly leaving a small white border around each one.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-5

I used more white cardstock and the Typecast typewriter to stamp the words “sweet valentine” on the cardstock. I love how the typewriter gives my toppers a vintage feel.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-6

I cut circles around the words to create a background for my butterfly stamped images. I also cut out circles from this beautiful pink and gold striped paper from the Typecast collection.

To assemble my cupcake toppers, I started by adhering the white typed circle to the pink and gold paper using my sticky thumb adhesive. Then, I added an adhesive foam square to the back of the butterfly to attach it to the circles.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-7

I used a strip of washi tape to attach my lollipop sticks to the back of the cupcake toppers.

valentine-cupcake-toppers-by-laura-silva-8

This is the perfect way to share a ‘sweet’ treat with your ‘sweet’ valentine, this Valentine’s Day.

These would be really adorable to make for a class party. And you could even use them without the lollipop sticks as a fun gift tag.

Thank You Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today to share a card set that uses the fantastic new Precision Press! This new stamping tool has so many great applications but We R Memory Keepers took it another step with incredibly inventive stamps that are ideal with the Precision Press. This is going to be your go-to stamping tool!

thanks-card-set-kimberly-crawford

The Precision Press allows you to stamp repeated images, in exactly the same place. Because of that, creating multiple cards is a breeze!

thanks-card-set-3-kimberly-crawford

Simply place your stamps and paper, apply ink, and close the lid. Perfect placement every time. And if you happen to miss a spot or two with ink, no worries, apply more ink, and close the lid again! No more missed stamped images!

thanks-card-set-4-kimberly-crawford

We R Memory Keepers took the idea of this tool to another level with the Layered Stamp sets. The set of images comes with a guide image. This thinner image keeps everything in place as you change stamps. I began my card set by placing my card stock onto the base of my Precision Press. The surface of the base has a texture to it that grips and holds the paper in place. I then placed the guide image down on the clear lid of the Precision Press.

thanks-card-set-5-kimberly-crawford

The first image, which is numbered, perfectly fits inside the guide image opening. This image is thicker, which allows you to apply ink to the raised image, but not the guide image. It is possible to get ink on the guide image, but because it is thinner, it will not leave marks on your card stock.

thanks-card-set-6-kimberly-crawford

 

Once your ink is applied, close the lid and push down on the image. Leave the stamps in place and you are ready to stamp the next piece of card stock. You can continue this process for as many images as you want to create.

thanks-card-set-7-kimberly-crawford

Once all my floral images were stamped, I wiped the stamp clean and removed it from the Precision Press. The next image, the thanks sentiment, was placed inside the guide image. Again, it fits perfectly, lining up the images. The inking, stamping, repeating process continued.

thanks-card-set-2-kimberly-crawford

 

Because I knew my images would stay in place, I experimented a little with the Banner Layered Stamp to add more color and depth. On my thank you cards, I applied green ink to certain areas of the floral image and stamped my card stock panels. After cleaning off the image, but leaving it in the guide image, yellow ink was added to the stamp. The possibilities are endless!
