Happy Birthday for InKing Royalty Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This is a great time of year to build your stash of handmade birthday cards, so we are sharing birthday-themed projects with you today. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! 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’ve been busier than usual this month so my card is quick, simple, and easy to reproduce.  I made my card using the Blessings of Home Bundle and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & Home Card Pack.  The card bases and envelopes are versatile enough for guy or gal cards.

Supplies
Card Base and Envelope-These cards are a bit larger than an A2 card. 
White Frayed Ribbon
Misty Moonlight Cardstock and Ink Pad
Basic White Cardstock
Classic Matte Dots
Harvest Dies
VersaMark Ink Pad
White embossing powder
Heat tool
Dimensionals
Tear and Tape
Stampin ‘ Cut and Emboss Machine

Process
1. Stamp the large flower stamp from the Blessings of Home Stamp Set on a piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock with VersaMark ink.
2.  Sprinkle the cardstock with white embossing powder, tap off the extra and set with the heat tool.
3.  Die cut the finished piece using the coordinating die from the bundle and the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.
3.  Cut a 5 1/2 in. piece of the Frayed Ribbon and attach to the card front with Tear and Tape.
4.  Adhere the die cut piece using Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Basic White Cardstock with Misty Moonlight Ink.
6.  Die cut the sentiment using the die from the Harvest Dies.
7.  Adhere to the card front.
8.  Embellish the finished card front with a sprinkling of Classic Matte Dots.

Leaves and Trees for the August InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature leaves and trees, so you are likely to find lots of inspiration for Autumn. 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 features the Beauty of the Earth Suite on page 10, and the Gold Leafing on Page 143 of the Annual Catalog .  The card features a Tent Fold.  I learned this fold from Lisa Curcio.  Here’s the link to her tutorial https://youtu.be/VL3EHNSYHag 

Here’s my version:

Here’s the details:

  1.  The card base is Merry Merlot with a window cut from the front.  A window sheet is adhered behind the window.
  2. The Designer Series Paper has added flecks of Gilded Leafing.  I first added dots of glue using a glue pen.  Next I dipped the DSP into the Gilded Leafing.  I used a stipple brush to remove the excess.  It’s really fun to use but a bit messy.  Those little gold flakes want to go everywhere!
  3. Adhere the DSP to the inside panel.
  4. I stamped the tree branch with Soft Suede ink.  I 2-step stamped the foliage using Merry Merlot and Night of Navy inks, stamping off once when I stamped the Navy.
  5. I used my glue pen again to add glue to foliage part of the tree.  I then repeated the Gilded Leafing process.  So pretty!
  6. I die cut the tree trunk and foliage.  I adhered the 2 tree pieces together and added them to the front of the card.
  7. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and added it to the card front.                                                                                                                                                                                                     What is usually the inside of the card is on the back of this one.  Here’s what it looks like.

  1.  I repeated the tree stamping process on this tree but used the smaller foliage pieces included in the stamp set.
  2. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy.  It’s from the Through It Together stamp set found on page 72 of the Annual Catalog.

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

Poinsettia Place Suite for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Christmas, which – believe it or not – is just around the corner. Please prepare yourself for lots of beautiful projects that share the joy of this holiday. 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.

There are so many beautiful bundles in this year’s August-December Mini-Catalog, but my favorite is the Poinsettia Petals Bundle.  Here is my card featuring this gorgeous bundle:

Here are the details:

  1.  The poinsettia is stamped in VersaMark on Petal Pink Cardstock and then embossed with white embossing powder.
  2. The berries are stamped in VersaMark on Mint Macaron Cardstock and then embossed with white embossing powder.
  3. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink.
  4. The center is three of the Wonderful Gems.
  5. The background is done on Watercolor Paper.  I saturated the top 2/3rds of the piece with my Water Painter.  I then did a watercolor wash using Pool Party ink.  A used my stamp pad lid as my palette.  Finally, I ground sea salt over the top of it and let it dry.  After drying, I wiped off the excess salt.  I love the way it turned out!  I hope you do too!

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!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Candy Ford at https://stampcandy.net/blog/. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Until next time,                                                                                                                                                    Robin

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!
