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!

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!

Hugs!
Robin

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!

Paper hugs!

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.
