Make DIY Stamped Embellishments on your Handmade Cards with the Precision Press Advanced

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here and it has been awhile since I shared a quick tutorial. So as I was using my We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced the other day, I realized that I HAD to share this quick tip that will change your stamping on coordinating die cuts world! Line your stamped images up inside their matching die cuts perfectly with these tips. I know I need all the help I can get with this!

Handmade Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Precision Press Advanced and Vicki Boutin Stamps & Dies

This beautiful butterfly image is from Vicki Boutin’s Field Notes line. With this lovely image, I knew I needed to not only use it, but make it the star of my card.

Using the coordinating die, I would be able to pop the butterfly up off my card and let it shine.

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced + Vicki Boutin Field Notes Dies and Stamps Set

I started by die cutting the butterfly from card stock. It does not matter where in your paper you cut it. I used the edge to get more use of my paper on another project.

Place your negative piece (the left-over) inside the Precision Press Advanced. The location does not matter. Secure the paper in place with the magnets.

Set the stamp (flat side up) inside the opening. The clear stamp makes it easy to see through the die cut opening, allowing you to quickly line up the edges all the way around the stamp.

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced + Vicki Boutin Field Notes Stamps and Dies

Place the clear top of the Precision Press Advanced over the paper and stamp and press down. When you press down, the stamp will cling to the clear plate.

Take the clear top off and place the die cut card stock back inside the negative space.

Ink your image, place the clear plate back on the press, and push down. Because the stamp was lined up with the Precision Press Advanced, each of your impressions will come out perfectly! You could stamp hundreds of these beautiful butterflies with no mistakes!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Hey there We R friends! It’s Aly here again with some fun Halloween party decor to share with you. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I’m creating a holiday themed project I just can’t seem to find the right themed supplies that works with what I’ve imagined in my mind. When that happens, I turn to my non-holiday themed supplies and get creative!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This Halloween season I’ve been inspired by ravens, owls, moths, and other vintage style critter images. I wanted to create something like that for my cupcake toppers, but I didn’t have a Halloween themed stamp that looked anything like that. So, I grabbed my Precision Press Advanced, the CMYK Bird Layered Stamps, some silver, grey, and black ink pads, and went to work!

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 5

The CMYK Stamps are made to work with the CMYK Ink Pads, which is how I usually create with them. But this time, I used a grayscale color scheme instead of the cyan, magenta, yellow and black to create a different look.

Halloween Cupcake Toppers by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers 6

I picked four colors of ink: silver, grey, charcoal and black, and followed the same sequence of stamping as I do with the CMYK Stamps: charcoal first, grey second, silver third, and black last.

Once I stamped all of my black birds, I used my Detail Scissors to fussy cut the shapes. To dress up my cupcakes, I made some cupcake wrappers with the DIY Party Board and some black marble paper from the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection.

Then I glued the wrappers together, and glued some black and write striped straw segments to my blackbirds with the USB Power Mini Glue Gun. Hot glue is my go-to adhesive for 3D paper crafts.

To finish off my cupcake toppers, I added black seguin stickers for the eyes, and black floss bows I made with the Bow Loom and some black Stitch Happy thread.

I love the texture that the monochromatic colors and the layered stamps create!

The toppers together with the black marble cupcake wrappers look pretty cool too!

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.

Fall Home Decor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

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!

Stamped Card Set

Hello, We R fans! Enza back with you to share a set of cards created with the Precision Press Advanced. I know I say it all the time, but this is another of those tools you need in your stash, especially if stamping is your thing. It makes it easier to work with layered stamps, and is great to create repeated patterns.

My cards today feature a circular design that came together in no time.

Stamped Card Set by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Precision Press Advanced

I started by trimming my card panel to measure 5.5 inch square. I like to be able to resize it if needed, so I always make it a little bigger than my card base. I then positioned my stamp in the center with the help of the grid design on the acrylic stamping block.

Next, I used a smaller stamp to create a wreath all the way around the main image.

Again I positioned it on my panel, pressed the top down, and turned the block four times without moving the paper. I then arranged the stamp again, and filled the empty spots with a lighter color of ink.

Stamped Card Set by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers featuring the Precision Press Advanced

It was so easy and fast, that I stamped another panel with a different color combination.

For one of the cards, I decided to stamp and heat-emboss my sentiment directly in the center.

Since I’m a big fan of dimensional elements, I wanted something that popped a bit more. I stamped a few more of the smaller flowers in a matching color, die cut them with the coordinating dies that come in the Vicki Boutin set I used, and adhered them down with foam adhesive. Black splatters finished the cards.

Hello, and Happy Friday We R friends! It’s my turn to share my Top 3 Favorite Tools with you and I’m so excited. Honestly, it was really hard to narrow it down to just three because I’m in love with so many We R tools! But, I gave it some thought and here they are!

As a crafter, stamping and I have a love-hate relationship. I hate the effort and patience that it takes, but I love the results. When the Precision Press Advanced was released my relationship with stamping completely changed! I can totally stamp with confidence and ease now, and that is something worth celebrating for sure.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a teacher gift that is sure to leave everyone with smiles! Quick, easy, and thoughtful is the best kind of teacher gift you can make. Follow this fun idea and not only will it meet all those criteria, but the tools from We R Memory Keepers will make it fully customized, adding an extra-special finishing touch!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This gift has a few parts to it, but my favorite is the smiley face emoji sticky-note pad! Yes, those smiling faces, while finishing the tag sentiment by saying, “All SMILES because you’re my teacher,” are also sticky notes! What teacher wouldn’t love to have those cute supplies on their desk?! I know this former teacher thinks they are fantastic!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

One tip to start, be sure and get the sticky notes that are completely backed in adhesive, not just on the top edge. This will make your notes stay together better.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory KeepersEmoji Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I trimmed my sticky note paper down to the size for the Emoji Punch Board, which is 1.5” square. Then I proceeded to punch out the smiley face version. I love that they are so many faces to be made, but this worked for today’s project best. Stacking 3 notes together worked well while punching, more pieces of paper than that was too thick. As I finished punching each stack, I layered them together. Seriously fun and easy. This would be a great way to get your kiddo involved in crafting as well!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create a tag for the sticky notes, I used the Tag Punch Board to layer two cardstock tags together. On each of the tags, I stamped the sentiment using the Precision Press Advanced. Arranging the stamps on the press made it so that the sentiment could be stamped precisely on each tag, and if a mistake was made, another tag could be created easily. Not that I would know anything about that…

Accents of patterned paper from the DCWV Sweet and Sassy pad were added for color and fun.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To personalize each jar, I punched a strip of patterned paper with the Word Punch Board. Adding each teacher’s name like this was not only easy, but it will help my kiddo remember whom to bring the gifts to as well. It also puts a name to the face of the person he must look at if he eats all the candy.

Our Favorite Colors: Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with the new Precision Press Advanced. I bet you were expecting a stamped card from me, weren’t you? Surprise! It’s a layout! But guess what? I did stamp on it and had a blast! The We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced has some fantastic features that are going to make stamping on any project easy!

Mixed Media Scrapbook Page with the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory KeepersMixed Media Scrapbook Page with the Precision Press Advanced by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Stamps and paints from Vicki Boutin in some of  my favorite colors were going to make a great layout, especially when paired with some great tools!

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced and Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Products from American Crafts

After painting lines on my mixed media paper, I placed it inside the Precision Press Advanced. The Press comes with two very strong magnets, which was great for holding my paper flat. I placed my stamp onto my project, exactly where I wanted it to be located. I placed clear, plastic grid piece of the Press on top, using the pegs as a guide. When I gently pushed down, the stamp clung to the plastic.

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced and Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Products from American Crafts

The stamp was covered in paint, using a foam brush. Then I placed the clear, plastic grid piece back on top. The image will stamp perfectly in place, because the peg guides line everything up. The absolute best part about this is, if I did not get enough paint (or ink if you were regularly stamping), I can add more and it will stamp precisely a second time. No missing. No double lines! Yay!

We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced and Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Products from American Crafts

The clear, plastic grid piece of the Press can also be used individually. Making it a fantastic tool for scrapbookers! I wanted to stamp a small feather on the layout, including layer it over an edge of paper. I placed my stamp on the clear, plastic grid piece, added paint, and then stamped wherever I desired. The clear, plastic grid piece has these lovely foam feet that help make a solid impression.

We R Memory Keepers Word Punch Board

For some finishing touches, I grabbed a few more of my favorite We R Memory Keepers tools. Especially this brand-new tool, the Word Punch Board.

We R Memory Keepers Word Punch Board

After painting a piece of mixed media paper, I lined up and punched the words out for my title. Such a great look!

We R Memory Keepers Stylus Tool

I love the look of splatter on projects, but honestly, it completely freaks me out to create. I am always afraid I will ruin my project. I solved my fear with one of the We R Memory Keepers Embossing Stylus Tools. Simply dip the end in paint and apply to you project. Apply it to your project more than once before adding more paint and you can get various sized dots. Controlled and exactly where you want them.
