Sunshine fun!

Inking Royalty blog hop

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.

About a week ago my dear friend and fellow royal, Andrea,  posted a card in the Inking Royalty Facebook page that was perfect for today’s blog hop!!  Of course, I asked her if I could share it with you guys!  She is a super talented paper craftier!  And I am very happy to be sharing Andreas card with you today!!!  I kinda swiped her color combination as inspiration for my own creations for the, Here Comes The Sun Blog Hop!

Inking Royalty

I adore this card so much!!! It is full of happy! Including the amazing color combination of Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, and Daffodil Delight!!  To create the sun burst Andrea used the light ray from High Tide Stamp Set.

I created three cards for you today using this wonderful happy sun color combination!!! To create the cards I used two Stamp Sets Abstract Impressions and Playful Backgrounds!  Both stamp sets have a very happy feel that works great with this sun color combination! Then for the simple sentiment, I used the always fun stamp set Hand Lettered Alphabet

  • The background was created using Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch inks with the Abstract Impressions stamp.
  • I flipped the stamp each time it was stamped to give a little verity to the shape
  • I was very tempted to add sequins for some bling, but in the end decided to keep it quite simple

  • This card used the Playful Backgrounds stamp set with the full spectrum of the sun color combination
  • The first step was to stamp the circle amoebas in Daffodil Delight
  • Then following in Pineapple Punch and Mango Melody
  • After stamping, I used A baby wipe to add some soft texture
  • The final step was to add the small dots

  • This time the ombree’ effect was created by stamping from light to dark
  • First up was Pineapple Punch, then Daffodil Delight, and finally Mango Melody
  • This fun stamp is in the Playful Backgrounds stamp set!

Lemonade summer

When it gets hot here in Alabama, all I really want to do is sit on the porch and drink Lemonade. It is hot and it is sticky. So our best defense is to stay as still as possible.  Summer is not officially here yet, but we have already had many of those two hot to move days!  I decided to make a fun little card to celebrate the warmth of the Summer and well Lemonade of course….

The Creative Way – A Product Feature

I love sharing different ideas with you about how to use your Stampin’ Blends!  Stampin’ Blends are Stampin’ Up! version of Alcohol Markers.  They are awesome in every way!!! Check out this post for more information about the Stampin’ Blends.

One of my favorite stamp sets from last years catalog was the Coffee Café stamp set!  I love anything to do with coffee or tea. And after almost 20 years in the Café business this set just makes me happy!

Coffee

Coffee Café stamp set and Coffee Cup Framelits

The stamp set and dies were combined with a technique by Jennifer McGuire, called Set Back Stamping.  This is a fun technique that really takes advantage of good white space, a focal point, and a colored panel. To create Set Back Stamping you will want to have coordinating die and a stamping tool, such as the Stamperatious is useful.

Lemonade

  • Using the Stamperatious, The cup was stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black.
  • Then the panel (2018 In-Color Designer Series Paper) was played over the white and the cup was stamped a second time
  • While using the Stamperatious, I stamped the fabulous friend with versa mark ink.  Then, heat embossed with black embossing powder
  • The cup on whisper white was colored with Pineapple Punch and Daffodil Delight blends.  After coloring in the image I decided to add Ice Cubes and the Straw.
  • The next step was, to use die cuts to cut the panel.  The inside of the cup was discarded. Then the panel was popped up using plenty of dimensionals.
  • The hello was created using the Pineapple Punch Stampin Blends on whisper white. After that dried, hello was heat embossed in black. Then die cut out using the Bunch of Banners dies. After die cutting, I used the colorless blender around the edges of the yellow banner to create a little variety of color
  • The final touch was using the same coloring technique to creat a thin yellow background on the card base.

Leaves, Leaves, and More Leaves!

Welcome to day 2 of The Creative Way!  I am stamping my way through the stamp set Rooted In Nature!

The Creative Way – A Product Feature

Today, I am using the two leaf stamps that remind me of leaf rubbings!  Do you remember when we were all kids??? One of the art activities would be to go outside on a nature walk and pick up leaves.  Then when we were back in the class room we would lay a piece of paper over the leaves.  The next step was to rub a crayon over the paper and be awed when the leaf vein pattern showed through the paper!  As a child I always loved doing this! So, as an adult I love that these two leaves remind me of my childhood!

Rooted In Nature

Rooted in Nature is a beautiful stamp set! I can’t say that enough!  Every time I use the set I find another reason to love it!

Nature

Rooted In Nature Bundle

The first post in this series shares a lot of my thoughts about the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and the Nature’s Poem Suite that it is apart of! You can find that post here

A card featuring the leaves from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set

  • The color combination is pulled right from the New 2018 In-Colors.  Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, and Lovely Lipstick
  • The leaves that are stamped in Blueberry Bushel were stamped twice before re-inking.
  • I adore the sentiment! Everyone needs to be reminded how wonderful they are!
  • The yellow sequins are from the Tutti Frutti Suite in the Occasions Catalog

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.

I really enjoyed making this sweet card!  The final step was to decorate the envelope!

I’m saying that Pineapple Punch is my favorite and it is….I was so hoping for a bright Sunny yellow! And boy did Stampin’ Up! deliver!!! It is awesome. The other 4 colors are just as amazing!!!

In May, there will be a special pre-release bundle available to all! Share What You Love Bundle will include the Love What You Do  stamp set from the up coming Annual Catalog!

Love What You Do

Love What You Do Stamp Set

The bundle also includes designer series paper, ink, and embellishments.  Also available are the 2018 In-Color ink pads!!  So, I decided to combine the Love What You Do stamp set and the new In-Colors for a little parade of sorts.

Lovely Lipstick is a beautiful pink red that will make your heart skip a beat!!! It is such a beautiful rich pink red and will be perfect for flowers, backgrounds, and so much more!

Love What You Do with Lovely Lipstick In-Color

  • This is the easiest card I have ever made!  The background stamp just lends itself to a very clean style!
  • The Background wash of color was stamped with Lovely Lipstick .
  • Then using Basic Black .I stamped the flower and sentiment .
  • The final step waturess to add a few Metallic Enamel Shapes

From here, I played with the card design to step it up a bit!  Also in each of following cards features the Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp .

  • The card was turned on its side and a strip from the Diagonal Stripe was added.
  • The washed background was Stamped with Blueberry Bushel by stamping off once then stamping onto the paper
  • The flower and sentiment were stamped at full strength .
  • The final step was to add a bow using the Whisper White twine.

Love what you do with Call Me Clover

  • The sentiment and flower were stamped with Basic Black ink
  • Finally, adding a combination one new twine in the Share What You Love embellishment kit and Whisper White twine

One of my absolutely favorite color combinations is yellow and blue….or is it blue and yellow.  Anyway, before I degrees…I just had to share how awesome Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch are together

Love what you do with Pineapple Punch

  • The wash background was stamped with Pineapple Punch
  • The Diagonal Stripe, sentiment, and flower were all stamped with Blueberry Bushel
  • The final touch was adding a few Metallic Enamel Shapes

The last but defiantly not least is Grapefruit Grove.  It is just a happy peachy orange!  I’m not a huge fan of oranges….But, I sure do love this color!  It also, looks classic paired with Blueberry Bushel

Love what you do with Grapefruit Grove In-Color

  • The wash background was stamped with Grapefruit Grove
