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!

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.

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
