Fall Forward - August 2016

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have been actively ordering from the 2016 Holiday Catalog – before it opens to customers on September 1.  We are excited to share some of our new goodies with you today!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the Fall months – Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner.  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 may wonderful stamps in the new Holiday Catalog.  I am in love with it all.  Especially, the fall additions.  The Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper is absolutely amazingly beautiful along with the stamp set.  And I love all the Hounting Halloween additions.  But, one of my absolutely favorites from the catalog is Totally Trees.  I will admit that Stampin’ Up! has lots of trees right now.  But, all of them are wonderful!!!  Totally Treese adds a little flair to the trees with solid backgrounds that the trees can be stamped over.  Our you can use just the trees.  I also, love all the tropical feeling trees added to this set.  What fun!!!!  I really think this is one set from the Holiday Catalog that can be used over and over.  And for any season!!!!

Totally Trees

Just look at all the wonderful trees you get!

Here are a few details:

  • The colors used are Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, and Whisper White
  • The trees are stamped on Bristol paper (this is a vellum finished paper that is ideal for wet and dry techniques and is great for stamped images)
  • I stamped the background after spiriting the stamp with water.  This gives the variety in color.
  • Then after the background was dry I stamped the trees on top
  • Then it was just adding layers and stamping the sentiment on the Whisper White layer.

That fabulous sentiment is from the Suite Seasons Stamp Set in the Holiday Catalog.  When I say this catalog is fabulous.  It really is just jammed packed full of amazing stamps, paper, ribbon, and so much more….

Here is the supply list:

Stamp Sets: Totally Trees and Suite Seasons

Paper: Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

Ink: Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze, Basic Black

Other: Bristol Paper (you can find this at your local craft store or at )

The Global Design Project team has a great color challenge going in.  Basic Black, Melon Mambo, and Smokey Slate.   I love, love, love all the cards by the design team.   So be sure to hop over to Global Design Project to check out all there wonderful projects. This color combination is  so very happy!   Just seeing the color Melon Mambo makes me happy.  And you guys know I love Smokey Slate :>GDP045_Colour_Challenge

For my design I decided to go completely clean and simple.  Relying on this fabulous color combination to shine!  I have been trying to push myself into doing more 3-d projects.  Stampin’ Up! makes it really easy with the variety of boxes they provide for the big shot.  One of which is the new Popcorn Box.  This little box is perfect to treats of any kind.  It is extremely easy to put together….

Here is a little video by Stampin’ Up! all about the Popcorn Box

Seeing all those popcorn boxes lined up in all their glory makes me want fall to come with all of its Carmel popcorn, popcorn balls, and just wonderful popcorn watching football…..

Popcorn box

I kept things pretty simple with the actual box.  And used the coordinating stamp set to make that fabulous tag.    Now no popcorn box would be complete without a card to go along side….IMAG3491

The card features many of the same elements as the popcorn box and the tag.  This helps bring both the card and the box together as one .    I just love the new selections of washi tape.  I have been using them a lot to add little accents of color to cards.  The Melon Mambo washi is from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Washi TapePop of Pink Designer Wahsi Tape

Here is one last look at the two projects.  And I will have to say, just look how cute the two are together.  Just a little match made in heaven….IMAG3497

Bundle to save.  When you purchase the Ready to Pop bundle you are saving 10%  Think about all the cute little popcorn boxes you could make.  And the set is great for other projects as well!!  I am compleatly in love with the little rick rack die!!!  I know I will be using him a lot!!!!
