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:

Remember for InKing Royalty May Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around REMEMBER. This word can mean different things to different people – fond memories, respectful tributes, special occasions that we’ll never forget. 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.

When I thought of a cardmaking look to go with the word remember, I thought of vintage.  The Woven Threads Suite in the new Annual Catalog has a vintage look to it, so I’m going to give you a sneak peek.  I love the suite’s distressed-look papers, old-fashioned script, and elegant images.  The Woven Threads Suite also features all of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  My card is a sympathy card.  Family deaths are difficult, but are a time of remembering fond occasions spent with our loved ones.

Here’s my card:

The details:

  • The top and bottom papers are found in the Woven Threads DSP.  The DSP with the script is from the   6X6 In-Color Designer Series Paper Pack.
  • The sentiment is included in the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set and is stamped in Rococo Rose.
  • The ribbon is the 5/8″ Woven Threads Trim.  (Tip- Pull the bottom string from the thread and the ribbon “tassles”.)
  • The leaf and key are from the Bird Ballad Trinkets found in the Bird Ballad Suite.

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

Enjoy the Hop!
