Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop!  We are excited to share some super-fun creations with you today!  This month’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the spookiest time of year – Halloween.  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.

Fall is such a fun time of year.  I just love all the pumpkins, leaves changing color, best of all football season.  Halloween is just one of the fun holidays that just brings out the joy in decorating.  Everthing from hanging gost in a tree to hainging spiderwebs in the hall way are compleatly acipatable.  Black candile stick are just simply a must. Anyway, it is just a great holiday.  Childeren dress up an trick or treat… I wanted to create a card that brought out the spooky feel of Halloween.  That being said.  I had not really pruchased my stamps for Halloween yet.  I know right????  So, thinking about what stamps I had…I combined two sets to create a fun sean.  I debated on adding a sentament but in the end.  I decided that it was best without…

When I first saw the Anniual catalog I was imadately in love with the Glamper Greetings stamp set.  Who does not love a great camper????

I just used the bats and the little pumpkin for this set.  I can’t wate to play with the set more and create all sorts of different camper outings… I combined the basts and the pumpkin with trees form the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  This set is only avaibale for a limited time.  And it is just full of amazing trees.

There are so many posibilites with this set!  And the greetings are Amazing!!!!

 Here are a few detils:

  • To create the night sky I created a mask for my large Harvist Moon. (let’s all sing Harvist Moon)  and then used my Clarity stincle brushes and inks to create the background.  I first laid down some Smoky Slate ink fallowed by Dapper Denim.  Then I went back and forth between the to colors untill I liked the background.  I added a little Early Espresso to to bottom for the night time ground.  After removing the mask, I laid down the negative mask to show only the moon.  Then with the brushed add some Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.
  • The second step was to add some White Gouache to the card to create clouds.
  • Finally, I stamped the trees and the bats with Basic Black Ink and the Pumpkin in Tangerine Tango
  • The card is layered on basic black and the Warmth & Cheer Designer series paper stack

Fall Forward

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 dickbick.com )
