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!

August InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Autumn Weather, so prepare yourself for projects that are filled with warm tones and beautiful nods to the upcoming change in weather. 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.

Fall is the time of year when the weather starts to cool down and we gather up the last of the bounty from our gardens.  My card today features the Autumn Goodness Bundle found on page 48 of the August-December Mini Catalog.  I love the beautiful stamps in this bundle but I love the dies even more-especially the wheelbarrow die featured on my card today.

My card is a super easy fun fold!  The base of the card is a 5 1/4 in. x 5 1/2 in. scored at 1 in. on the 5 1/4 in. side.  The fold becomes a flap for another part of the base which measures 4 in. x 4 in.  

Other details:                                                                                                                                                                1.  The wheelbarrow is stamped in Soft Suede on Crumb Cake cardstock.                                                                   The veggies are stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.                                                            Both images were cut using the die cuts.   

  2.   The DSP used on the sides/inside of the card is the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper found           on page 45 of the Autumn-December Mini Catalog.  The strips are 1 in. x 4 in.

 3.  The Very Vanilla pieces measure 3 in. x 3 and 3/4 in. and 4 in. x 5 1/4 in.

 4.  The pretty copper ribbon is part of the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.  I can be found on          page 45 of the August-December Mini Catalog.

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.

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!

Peek-a-Boo for Inking Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPOOKY. With Halloween just around the corner, we are excited to share our spooky, fun projects with our neighbors, coworkers and family – and we’re 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 is a rare one for me.  It uses no stamping!  Instead, I used dies, an embossing folder and Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create my card front.  Take a look:

Aren’t those spooky figures cute peeking through their windows?  Here’s the details:

  • My card base is Basic Black with a Smoky Slate panel.
  • The Smoky Slate piece is embossed with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.
  • The windows are cut using the Layering Squares Dies.  The black frames are cut from the same dies only larger.
  • I snipped the characters from a sheet of DSP from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper pack.  I then glued them to the back of my gray panel.
  • The sentiment is cut using the Hand-lettered Prose Dies.
  • 3 Clear Epoxy Droplets add a little shine.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you will hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Kelly Kent at https://mypapercraftjourney.com/.

Happy hopping!    Robin

April Inking Royalty Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPRING. Spring is a special time of year – it’s fun to celebrate the beauty of nature and to get back outside during this transition of the seasons. 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.

Spring for me means flowers-lots and lots of flowers.  I love getting my hands dirty in the garden. I didn’t have to get dirty for the flowers I’m showing you on my card.  Instead, I’m giving you a SNEAK PEEK of a GORGEOUS flowered Designer Series Paper called Perennial Essence. This paper evokes images of Monet’s many Impressionistic flowered paintings.  Take a look:





Here are the details:
  • I kept my card simple so the paper could shine.
  • There are many colors swirled together on this DSP.  I chose to focus on Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow
  • Did you notice the new ribbon? It’s called Organdy Striped Ribbon.  I adhered it to a strip of Whisper White because the green from the DSP was showing through and overpowering the softness of the ribbon.
  • The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.  I stamped it in Mossy Meadow on the circle die, cut from the Stitched Labels Dies.
  • To finish my card, I added some Powder Pink sequins from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
  • ALL of the products used in my card will be in the new Annual Catalog which launches the beginning of June!

Happy Spring!
