I Don’t Want to Wait ‘Til Christmas

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.”  We are half-way through the year, so there’s no better time to start thinking about the joy of Christmas. 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 have very few current Christmas stamps right now because the Holiday Catalog will be coming out in September. I had 2 sets that had any Christmas stamps but luckily At Home With You is one of my favorite sets and it can be all dolled up for the holidays. I made the background using Shimmery White Embossing Paste and the brick stencil from the Patterned Party Decorative Masks. I used watercolor paper for all of the layers and Cherry Cobbler for the base. I stamped with Memento Black and used reinkers with an aqua painter to color everything in.

While I had my all of my embossing paste out I played around with adding my reinkers directly into the paste and then applying it to the paper. I love the effect! From left to right I used Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Real Red. It is hard to see in photos but they have some serious sparkle!

Here Comes the Sun

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. 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 didn’t realize that this is my second post in a row using the set Enjoy Life until I went to write my post. Ooops…but obviously this set really speaks to me. I had the idea for this card from the moment I laid eyes on it. With the theme of today’s hop it was a no brainer that it was time to make it happen.

The colors I used are Pineapple Punch from the new In Colors, the beautiful returning Costal Cabana, Whisper White and Memento black ink. The ribbon is Whisper White classic weave. I rounded the corners with the new, awesome Detailed Trio punch. I made the sun image with a circle mask using the 2″ circle punch and simply sponged in the Pineapple Punch ink.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. What fun! 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 I saw the set Enjoy Life on pg 58 of the new catalog I was instantly in love with the upbeat, positive messages in both the images and the sentiments. Connie Fitzgerald designed this as her $1,000,000 sales set. I paired it with a piece of DSP from Tranquil Textures. I used Night of Navy, Fresh Fig and Whisper White. I took the idea for this card from pg 59 of the catalog.

Let the Good Times Roll

InKing Royalty Blog Hop - Let the Good Times Roll

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! This year’s hops are themed around some of our favorite songs. Today’s hop is pulls inspiration from B.B. King’s song “Let the Good Times Roll.” How fun is that?! We’ve created projects that either feature images with wheels (cards, wagons, bikes) or celebrate good times. We are excited to share our projects with you. 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 decided to take a little liberty with this months theme and go with circles. They are round like tires, right?

At Stampin’Up’s On Stage event last week we were introduced to one of the most incredibly cool new items that will be in the 2018-2019 catalog. The Delightfully Detailed Laser cut Specialty Paper is unlike anything I have ever seen before. I was immediately in love with the piece of interlocked circles. I layered it on top of a piece of my favorite returning color, Poppy Parade. I was over the moon when I saw that my favorite color of all time was returning as a new color in the new color line up. I lovingly took one of the last 3 sheets I have been hoarding for the last 5 years and was able to cut it without shedding a tear. I added a sweet little sentiment from Tabs For Everything and a bit of linen thread for a card that screams “PAM”!!!!

A little more about the laser cut paper. Each pack comes with 8 12×12 sheets and has several shapes and designs and even a bunch of borders. You can just cut out the pieces, or parts of the pieces…but the best part is that they are white on one side and vanilla on the other side!!! The possibilities are endless!

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on Sunshine Blog Hop - InKing Royalty

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate Spring and Summer. With inspiration from Katrina & the Waves’ song “Walking on Sunshine,” we’ve created projects that share the joy and excitement that accompany warmer weather. We are excited to share our projects with you. 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 know everyone is VERY ready for spring. Winter has been brutal this year! It was nice to break out one of the prettiest sets in the Occasions catalog, Petal Palette. It is full of beautiful florals, sayings and this sweet little bird that all scream SPRINGTIME.

I have always wanted to make a peek-a-boo card using a window sheet and I think this turned out really pretty. I used some Wood Textures DSP with Old Olive ink and cardstock, and Calypso Coral ink and 1/8″ sheer ribbon. I stamped the images on the inside of the card so that the image is seen through the window sheet. A few tiny pearls give it a pretty finish. So sweet!

IMG_0082

The following card is another version of the one above. I actually stamped the sentiment directly on the window sheet using Stazon. The leaf is stamped on the inside of the card so it gives a bit of depth. I also want to point out that SU will carry over the Wood Textures DSP into the next Annual Catalog. This makes my heart so happy!

They Say It’s Your Birthday

InKing Royalty Blog Hop - They Say It's Your Birthday

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop today is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share 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 is a complete and total CASE of a Valentines Day card I received from my dear friend Amanda Merrill. When I opened it I was blown away by the stunning layout using shimmer ribbon as a background. I have quite a hoard of this gorgeous ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and now I know how I want to use it all!

Here is my card which also uses a bit of 1/8 silver ribbon and Pool Party and Powder Pink shimmer ribbons from the Annual Catalog. I punched out a cake from a piece of Cake Soiree DSP and embellished it with a Pool Party banner. The greeting is from World’s Best Trophy. Since it is a photopolymer set I was able to curve my sentiment on the block so it fit on the banner.

IMG_6720

Here is the card that Amanda sent me. Isn’t it gorgeous???? I love how she kept it so simple.

IMG_6719

If you are wondering how I adhered my ribbon, I cut a piece of multi purpose adhesive sheet down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and stuck it to a piece of thick whisper white cardstock. I then used Amanda’s card as a guide to stick my ribbon down. I don’t know how she managed to get the exact ribbon layout to fit perfectly on a standard card size but I am glad she did that math for me! Once my ribbon was perfect, I tucked and adhered the ends to the back and mounted it onto a card base. It was a really fun card to make.

Thank you for your inspiration Amanda!!!

I THINK I LOVE YOU

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs – the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed 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.

Stampin’Up! has always hit a home run with their Valentines stamps and accessories…. and this year is no different. I think the Painted With Love DSP from the Occasions catalog is just amazing. Each piece is an artwork within itself. For my sweetie’s Valentine I used this beautiful paper to make an accent layer on my card and a coordinating envelope. I am in love with the Hearts and Stars wood elements from the annual catalog so I decided to add these instead of stamping hearts. They are so easy to use and adhere with just a touch of Mono Multi glue. Our products are very on trend so these funky wooden elements give off a very modern feel and fit right in with my simple style of stamping. The sentiment, stamped in Melon Mambo, is from our most recent Paper Pumpkin kit, and knew it would be my go to stamp this VD. If you are not subscribing to Paper Pumpkin or would like to know more about it please let me know!

I made the custom envelope using the envelope punch board and addressed it with the ever fun Brush Stroke Alphabet set from the annual catalog.

If you have any questions please contact me or leave them in the comments. I would love to hear from everyone who stops by. And please let me know if you are interested in learning more about Stampin’ Up! Now is a fantastic time to get started in your crafting journey as we offer so many free products during our yearly Sale-A-Bration event!
