Leaf peeping at InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! Don’t you just love this time of year when all the leaves begin to change and fall?! We do, and we are excited to share our creations. 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 live in Pennsylvania which has spectacular views of the changing leaves.  Many people, including myself, love to go leaf peeping.  I hope you like peeping at my leaf card.

Aren’t those leaves gorgeous?  I covered my leaves with Gilded Leafing.  It’s a bit messy, but so worth it!
Here are the details:

Materials List
Autumn Leaves Bundle 162179
Cajun Craze Cardstock 119684  Card base and 3 3/4 in. x 6 in.
Thick White Cardstock  159229   4 in.x 6 in.
Gorgeous Gingham Designer Series Paper 163170   4 in. x 5 1/4 in.
Adhesive Sheet 152334  3 3/4 in. x 6 in. (2)
Gilded Leafing  154560
VersaMark Pad  102283
Gold Embossing Powder 155555

Putting it all together
* Place the 4 in. x 6 in. piece of Thick White Cardstock between the bottom and top layer of one of the adhesive sheets.
*  Die cut the leaves from the Adhesive Sheet.
*  Peel off the top layer of the Adhesive Sheet. Put the Gilded Leafing onto the leaves and pat down firmly.  Remove the excess with a stipple brush or an     old toothbrush. ( If you have a fresh manicure, you might want to wear gloves.)
*  Adhere the leaves to the designer series paper by peeling off the bottom of the Adhesive Sheet.
*  Peel off the top layer of the other Adhesive Sheet.  Place the Cajun Craze Cardstock between the layers of the adhesive and die cut the leaf veins.
*   Adhere the leaf veins to the leaves.
*  Die cut the sentiment piece out of Thick Whisper White.  Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark, sprinkle with the gold powder, and heat with the heat tool        until shiny.  Adhere to the designer series paper.
*  Finally, adhere the finished card front to the card base.

That’s it!  I really had fun playing with the Gilded Leafing!  I hope you give it a try.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Lynn Kolcun at Avery’s Owlery

Flower Power for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Despite the occasional cold spell or snowfall in some areas, we are well into Spring – and we are ready for the flowers to bloom. We are excited to share our flower-filled creations with you 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.

The fact that I love flowers is an understatement.  I ADORE flowers!  Stampin’ Up! has so many beautiful flower offerings in the catalogs.  It’s hard to pick just one, but I chose the Two-Tone Flower Bundle in the January-April Mini Catalog. Not only is the bundle beautiful, so is the gorgeous Fancy 
Flora Designer Series Paper.  I’ve paired these beauties with one of the dies from the Artisan Addition Dies found in the Annual Catalog.  Here’s what I created.

 

This card is so easy to make.  Let me show you how.

Two-Toned Flora Bundle
Something Fancy Bundle

Adhere the die cut piece to the designer series paper
Stamp the flowers using the two step stamps from the Two-Tone Flora Bundle and die cut
Add Wink of Stella for sparkle if desired

InKing Royalty Bloggers are Thankful

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! November is a time of gratitude and thanksgiving, and we’ve made projects that say “thanks!” to special people in our lives. 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 am thankful for where I grew up.  I lived on a small farm in Iowa and spent most of my time outside exploring creeks and playing Hide and Seek in the cornfields.  A favorite time for my sister and I happened after harvest was over, and the hunters would come to hunt pheasant.  At the end of the day, we were gifted some of the beautiful tail feathers of the birds.  Those feathers were many things.  Most of the time they became magic wands. Something that simple made us so happy.

My card today showcases the beautiful pheasant in the stamp set Painted Pheasant.  
I painted my pheasant using daubers with the ink colors Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana, and Merry Merlot.  The fallen leaves use the same three colors.  All of the stamped images were fussy cut and adhered to the front panel. The Merry Merlot card base was embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  The center section is a piece of Distressed Gold 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla Cardstock and die cut using a die from the Joyful Flurry bundle.

Spotlight on leaves for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This month’s blog hop is dedicated to leaves. As the weather begins to cool, the leaves begin to change colors and fall from the trees. 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.

My card today uses the Spotlight Technique and the Baby Wipe Technique to show off my leaves today.
Here’s my card:

Soft Seedlings is one of my favorite stamp sets from the July-December Mini Catalog.  Even though it has no coordinating dies, it’s very versatile.  I’ll walk you through my process.

Materials
Soft Seedlings Stamp Set
Peaceful Moments Stamp Set
Cajun Craze Cardstock – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
Basic White Cardstock – 2 pieces cut at 4 x 4 1/4 (one for the inside), 3 x 3, 2 x 2
Circle Dies
Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow Reinkers
Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots
Baby Wipes

Stamping Steps
*Stamp the leaf with Cajun Craze Ink on one of the large Basic White Cardstock Pieces.  
*Prepare your baby wipe stamp pad by folding a couple of wipes.  Add drops of color from the reinkers onto the baby wipes.  Tip: I like to set my wipes on a Silicone Craft Sheet.  It’s easy to clean and gives the wipes a bit of a cushion.
*Press the leaf stamp into the baby wipes and then stamp onto the 3×3 Basic White Cardstock.  Repeat the process with the sentiment, stamping on the 2 x 2 piece of Basic White.  
*Die cut the 2 stamped images using the circle dies.  Die cut the Cajun Craze cardstock pieces with the circle dies.  Adhere the stamped images to the coordinating Cajun Craze circles.
*Adhere the finished leaf piece on top of the part of the front panel that you are “spotlighting” (covering up).   Adhere the sentiment to the upper right side of the front panel.  Trim the circles so they fit don’t hang over the panel.
 *Adhere the finished panel to the front of the card base.
*Add 3 of the Metallic Dots to the card front.

I thought it turned out beautifully 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 Stamp Candy. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Enjoy the hop!

InKing Royalty Hop goes back to school

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! Can you believe it’s already time for schools to start back up?! The return to school after summer vacation is a really big deal for students, teachers, school workers and the parents who are left home alone. To honor this big event, we have created projects with a back to school theme. 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 retired from teaching in June after 31 years.  While I’m happily settling into the easy life, I have many friends who are rushing to get rooms ready for the first big day.  My project today is a card that pays tribute to all those dedicated public servants who feel like summer is just getting started, not over.

Here’s the card front:

And here’s the inside:

 

Here’s the recipe:

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
Cardstock
Bermuda Bay- Card base and 3 1/2 x 5 in.
Coastal Cabana – 4 x 5 1/4 in. and 3 3/4 in. x 5 1/4 in.

4.  Stamp the coffee cup that is 4th down in the 3rd column with the coffee cup in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

7.  Add the Classic Matte Dots.
8.  Pop the finished panel onto the base with Dimensionals.

Crane of Fortune for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! Spring is just around the corner, so we are sharing Spring projects with bees and birds. 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 chose to go the “Bird” route for my card today.  It features the Crane of Good Fortune Bundle.  This elegant bundle can be found in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  Take a look and tell me what you think.

Here’s how I created it.
Materials:
Crane of Fortune Bundle
Grassy Grove Stamp Set
Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and Stamp Pad
Basic White Cardstock
Smoky Slate Stamp Pad
2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds
Dimensionals

Process
Cut the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock 5 1/2 in. x 8 1/2 in. and fold at 4 1/4 in.
Cut 1 piece of the DSP at 4 in. x 5 1/2 in.
Stamp the crane in Smoky Slate onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock and die cut.
Using the remaining piece of DSP, die cut the lilies and free hand the rocks.
Adhere the crane to the card front and then adhere the cut pieces around it.
Stamp the sentiment on the gray section of the DSP and cut to 1 1/4 in. x 2 1/4 in.
Adhere the sentiment to a strip of remaining DSP measuring 3/4 in. x 3 in.
Add Dimensionals to the piece and adhere to the card front.
Add 3 of the Opal Rounds.  (I used up some gems that recently expired.)
