June InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate the 4th of July – the projects are inspirational, patriotic and filled with reds, whites and blues. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Who doesn’t enjoy a 4th of July celebration?!  I have a friend who really loves the 4th because his birthday is on the same day as our country’s.  He is a no fuss kind of guy, so I have made a quick and easy card for him.  Here’s my card:

I chose the new stamp set, Happiest of Birthdays to take center stage on my card.  The bold font hops right off of the card front!

My friend is going to like the color combo of Misty Moonlight, Whisper White and Real Red – traditional colors for this special holiday.

 The Real Red background was created with the Buffalo Check background stamp.  I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time getting the image of this stamp straight, even with the Stamparatus.  Nothing looks worse than a crooked plaid!  I also wanted the dark squares of the image around the outside.  I got around it by inserting a 6 x 6 in. piece of Whisper White in the Stamparatus.  I stamped the image and then trimmed to get the part of the image I wanted.  

I popped up my sentiment with Dimensionals and added a couple of Star Designer Elements and that’s it!  I think my friend will like his card and I hope you do too!

Sunshine Theme for InKing Royalty May Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Sunshine, so prepare yourself for projects that are filled with sunny images of joy in the great outdoors. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My card today features an old technique with a new bundle.  The technique is the Sunburst Technique and the bundle is the NEW Birds and Branches Bundle found on page 120 in the new Annual Catalog.

Here’s my card:

Isn’t that bird and nest sweet?  And, did you notice there are two new In-Colors on my card as well?  Of course you did!  This bundle features two-step stamping images, branches and adorable little eggs.  The dies have a pretty circle cut-out perfect for layering as well as the edge die I used today.

Here are the details:

Paper measurements- Thick Whisper White Cardstock for your base, Pacific Point measuring 41/8 X 5 3/8 in., Whisper White measuring 2 1/2 X 5 1/4 in., Just Jade measuring 3/4 in. X 5 1/4 in. , BumbleBee In-Color Designer Series Paper Assortment  that measures 1 3/8 X 4 and extra Whisper White for Stamping you images.

  • Using 2 sheets from the DSP pack, cut 2 pieces that measure 1 3/8 X 4 in. from each sheet.  Next, place them in your paper trimmer and cut on the diagonal from corner to corner.
  • Gently fold Whisper White Cardstock in half to find the center.  Start adhering your DSP on either side of the crease.  Continue until all the pieces are glued down.  (These will hang over your cardstock.) Next trim around the outside of the piece with scissors or your trimmer.  Tah-Dah!  You now have a sunburst!
  • Adhere the finished sunburst to the Pacific Point Cardstock.
  • Die cut the Just Jade piece and adhere.  (This die is designed to form a decorative edge for the bottom of a card.  I cut the piece and left an edge on it so I could glue it down.)
  • Stamp and die cut the bird and next images and adhere.
  • The Hello Sunshine sentiment is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set.  I’m so glad this set was carried over!  Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark and emboss using White Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.
