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.)

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. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

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.

Sale-A-Bration fun for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! We are having so much fun with our new Sale-a-Bration products and are excited to share some of that fun with you today. This month’s projects feature papers or stamp sets (or both!) from Stampin’ Up!’s January – February 2022 Sale-a-Bration brochure. 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, Joanne Whittington at The Inky Dragon.

I chose the Driving By Stamp Set for my Sale-A-Bration pick today.  With the Stamparatus, this card could easily be made by a beginning crafter. Here’s my card:

I just love the van!  It gave off a 60’s vibe so I went with it.

1.  Start with a Pool Party card base.
2.  Using the Stamparatus and the Spiral Dye Stamp, stamp the background on a 3 3/4 in x
      5 in. piece of Basic White Cardstock.  I used Magenta Madness Ink. 
      I stamped off on a scrap piece of paper then stamped the cardstock.
3.  Stamp the van using Tuxedo Memento Ink.  Color the van using Pool Party, 
     Smokey Slate and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. Draw the “peace symbol” with a
     Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.
4.  Fussy cut the van and pop it in the middle of the card with Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Memento Ink and cut it up the middle.
     Adhere it to the card so that it resembles a “road” for the van to drive on.
6.  Lastly, give it a little sparkle by adding 3 Polished Pink Jewels from the 2021-2023 
     In Color Jewels.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!  Please continue on your hopping way.  If you get lost, the links are below.

Hugs!

Pretty Packages and Tags for InKing Royalty Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November 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 pretty packages and beautiful tags to inspire your holiday gift-giving. 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 it comes to the holidays, I’m all about quick and easy!  My project fits the bill perfectly.  Take a look:

 

I always have white gift bags on hand so I pulled out one of those.  I trimmed a 12 x 12 sheet of Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper to fit and adhered it to the bag front.

I cut the tag using a die from the Seasonal Labels Dies out of another piece from the designers series pack.  I also cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock using the same die and adhered the 2 together for strength and so I’d have a place to write on the back.

The bow is made from white tulle and strips of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and some silver retired ribbon I had in my ribbon stash.

That’s it!  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.  There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Harvest and Hope for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October 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 center around Harvest & Hope, so prepare yourself for gratitude and love in Fall-themed projects. 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 showcases the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.  I used bleach to stamp the pretty leaves onto the cardstock.  Here is my card:

 

Details:
Materials used:
Misty Moonlight Cardstock,
Cork Specialty Paper
Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set
Early Espresso Ink Pad
Water Painter and bleach
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Tasteful Textured 3D Embossing Folder
Stampin’ Dimensionals

Process:
1. Stamp the leaves onto the cardstock using the Water Painter filled with bleach.  I “painted” the bleach onto the stamp until it was very wet but not dripping.  Stamp with firm pressure and hold the stamp in place for about 20 seconds.  Do this with all the leaf stamps.

2.  Splatter some of the bleach onto the paper by tapping on the barrel of the Water Painter.

3.  Emboss the stamped and splattered panel with the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

4. Stamp the sentiment on the Very Vanilla piece in Early Espresso Ink.  Adhere to the panel using Dimensionals.

5.  Add 3 Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots for sparkle.

6.  Adhere the finished panel to the cork layer and then add that panel to the cardstock. (In case you were wondering, I adhered them on slanted angles on purpose.  It could be because I was up very late making the card!)

I really enjoyed experimenting with different colors of cardstock.  Each color faded differently.  I hope you give this technique a try!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Marilyn Jones at Stamp With MJ.  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!

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!
