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.

Free as a Bird for Springtime InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Springtime, so I hope you are ready for gorgeous Spring colors, flowers and butterflies – and maybe some sweet baby animals. 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 for today was inspired by the beautiful blossoms of my flowering tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While not an exact match, they remind me of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I created a Center Step Card today using a tutorial by France Martin. Here’s the link to her tutorial Center Step Tutorial by France Martin

Here are the details.

  • The card base is Calypso Coral and measures 4 1/2 X 11 in.
  • The center panel measures 2 1/8 X 4 3/8 in. 
  • The 2 side panels measure 7/8 X 4 3/8 in.
  • I used the middle sized circle in the Stitched Framelits Dies along with a Calypso Coral circle cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.
  • The strip at the bottom measures 7/8 by 4 3/8 in.
  • I used the Well Written Framelets Dies to create the sentiment.
  • A Bird Ballad Trinket and an Old Olive ribbon bow finish off the card.

I put a 4 1/8 x 4 3/8 in. piece of DSP on the back so I’d have a place to jot a note and sign the card.  

I hope you like my card and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hugs, Robin

Tropical Birthday for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Hello!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate birthdays, so prepare yourself for a wonderful mix of celebratory cards. 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.

I’m crushin’ on the Tropical Oasis Suite in the Mini Catalog!  I used it today to make my birthday card.  Take a look:

 

I just love this sheet from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper!  Such fun!

Here are the details:

  • The card base is Crumb Cake.  
  • The Mint Macaron pieces are 4 in. x 5 1/4 in. and 1 in. x 4 in.
  • The DSP measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.
  • The sentiment is from the Geared Up Garage Suite and stamped in Early Espresso. (I love it when you can incorporate more than one stamp set on a card.)
  • I used 3 in. of the Braided Burlap Trim and frayed it at both ends.  I put Tear & Tape on the back and adhered it to the front and back of my sentiment piece.
  • I adhered one of the Tropical Oasis Trinkets to the trim with Tear & Tape.
  • I popped up the sentiment piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That’s it!  I hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

Let It Ride for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around VACATION. While many are reminiscing about their summer vacations, others are looking forward to the long weekend just around the corner. 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.  

I live on the East Coast.  A good part of my vacation is spent with my Dad in Iowa.  I grew up there and love to catch up on the news while I’m there.  My dad raises mules and has a special sign to welcome visitors.

The Let It Ride Stamp Set reminds me of this sign and the fun times to come!  Here’s the card I made with the set.

Here’s the details:

  • The card base is made from Whisper White Thick Cardstock.
  • The next layer is Early Espresso embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.
  • The background rectangle is Copper Foil embossed with the new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  I sanded it a bit because I thought it overpowered the stamped image.
  • The image from Let It Ride is stamped with a Rich Cocoa Memento Pad.  I then colored the image using Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.
  • The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.  I stamped it in VersaMark and them embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder.
  • The 3 copper brads finish off my card and are also sanded to remove a bit of the shine.  

Dad’s birthday is September 2 so this card will be on the way to him soon!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp With Brian.  There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Happy Hopping!  Robin

June InKing Royalty Blog Hop – New

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around NEW. With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog, NEW gives us the opportunity to showcase new products and play with new colors. There are also new occasions (babies, weddings, graduations) to celebrate, so you are going to see a variety of projects in this hop. 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.

I am sharing a card made with the new Sailing Home Bundle.  This bundle makes card design super easy!  With all of the stamps, dies, DSP, and accessories the cards practically make themselves!

Here’s my card:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the details:

  • While most of the Designer Series Paper in this bundle features shades of blue, I used a piece that is Mossy Meadow. 
  • The card base is Soft Suede and the other neutral color is Very Vanilla. 
  • The compass and lighthouse are stamped in Soft Suede and die cut. The die cut wheel is also done in Soft Suede. 
  • The compass needle is die cut from a Copper Foil Sheet and attached to the compass with a brad. So fun! 
  • The sentiment is perfect because I’m giving this card to my handsome hubby for our anniversary. 
  • The last element is the Braided Linen Trim which I tied in a Sailor’s Knot and attached onto the back of the DSP.  Super easy!  Here’s a picture from Martha Stewart that shows you how to make the knot:
