Happiest of Days

I am back today with a quick and quick and easy little card featuring the Happiest of  Day stamp set! I love the sketched look of the stamps  and that it is super sweet!  It is just one of those sets that a girly girl loves.

Oh Happiest of Days stamp set

This set is perfect for those who like to color! Or add doodling to a card.  I have seen lots of doodling lately on cards. It is defiantly an on trend thing! And it adds lots of personality to your handmade cards.  Rambling Rose Studio is amazing at doodling. You should definitely check out Billie’s work! Her cards are awesome and she will defiantly make you want to try your had at doodling.

  • Everything is stamped in basic black.
  • The three packages were colored with prisma color colored pencils. The colors used were Chartreuse (pc989), vert printemps (pc913), and eaugepále (pc1089)
  • The corner stamp is from the Host Set in the Holiday Catalog, Season of Whimsy
  • The last thing to do was add the doodling lines! I used a zig millennium 05 to do this.

The card base is a 4 bar size. Stampin’ Up! makes great 4 bar note cards and Envelopes. These are perfect for little cards like this. The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3 3/8 by 4 7/8 inches.  The stamped Whisper White layer is 3 1/4 by 4 3/4 inches.

You guys know I love to decorate my envelopes.  So I added a little doodling to it as well and a Happy Birthday from Teeny Tiny Wishes

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

I’m going to leave you with an up close of the coloring. It was quite simple to add just a little bit of shading by layering the three colors on top of each other! Also, adding thin layers of color helped to build the color up!

Below is the supply list! Happy Stampin’ Remember you will also need a fine point pen for the doodling. And a way to color this awesome set!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope each of you have a wonderful Tuesday!  Stay creative my friends!

Peace-

Take 2 with #GDP1000

The Global Design Project is celebrating their 100th challenge!!! How fun is that. Earlier this week I cased the fabulous, Brin King.  You can see my card here.  Today, I am caseing my friend Shawn DeOliveira.  Shawn and I officially met last year at World Card Making Day in Atlanta!  Though we know each other in the cyber world much longer.  So, I knew I had to CASE his awesome card for the Global Design Project 100th Challenge!

I love this card so much! The colors are awesome! The use of metallic is just perfect! One think that always impresses me about Shawn’s cards is the graphic feel they have.  That, and how he uses ribbon is beyond amazing!

Here’s the banner for Global Design Project. I hope you all will hop over to see the design team’s cards for this very special challenge!

I wanted to use metallic, like Shawn did! I also wanted to case his card design.  I love the clean and beautiful feel his card had.  I loved the texture of the background so, I wanted to case that as well.  That gave me a starting place…Matallics, design, and texture!!!

So the only thing let to decide on was the stamp set!

I decided on Lift Me Up! Mainly because, I thought the dies and stamped balloons would work as a focal point. Much like the sentiment, vellum, and ribbon all draw the eye to a certain point on Shawn’s card.  And, well, I love this set! And I had not used it recently.  So, it was time to dust it of…

Lift Me Up Stamp Set

I love how cute this stamp set is! And it is even better that the stamp set and coordinating dies work together to make verity of balloons.  What fun!!!

  • I decided for the metallic I would use the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper paired with silver foil.  What a fun combination! Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst complete the color combination
  • For the texture I added silver embossing with the touches of texture stamp set. This was added to the Berry Burst background and to the large balloon
  • The sentiment is outlined with a banner border from Thoughful Banners.  Look how wonderfully the sentiment fits right in there!

Christmas in July for Inking Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop!  It’s Christmas in July, and today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by … you guessed it … Christmas!  What fun!  Although Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog will be released to demonstrators this week (we can’t wait to share that with you), our Annual Catalog is filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make Christmas special.  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 am so loving all the Christmas products in the annual catalog! We have several stamps that carried over from last year’s holiday catalog. They are wonderful stamp set and I am so glad that they stayed around. I adore Flurry of Wishes, Christmas Pines, and Father Christmas just to name a few Then there are two new stamp sets that are just awesome! Merry Mistletoe and Nature Sings. There are a few other stamps that work well for the Holidays like At Home, Wats of Occasions, and Colorful Seasons. The stamp set I am loving the most right now for the Holidays is Carols of Christmas. It is being released in August! And it is awesome. The is set pairs with the card front builder dies! They are amazing as well. You can get this set now for FREE! When you join Stampin’ Up! In July. (more about this at the bottom of my post)

Carols of Christmas

Today I paired this with two stamps that are not Christmas related. But, end up making a fun and festive card. Fabulous Flamingo and Pop of Paradise. Both of these sets have one thing in common. Flamingos!!! I love Flamingos! They are just beautiful creatures.

Fabulous Flamingos Stamp Set

I Love this summery stamp set.  Click here to see another card featuring this stamp set.

Pop of Paradise Stamp Set

This was one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2016 Annual Catalog.  I am so very happy that it is back for another year.   Click here to see another card featuring this stamp set.

 

 

  • I stamped the flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo in Archival Basic Grey.  Then created a watercolor wash around the flamingo with Lemon Lime Twist ink.  The first layer was done with a really light wash of color.  Then I went back and added a second layer of color in some places.
  • The next step was to stamp the inside of the flaming in Flirty Flamingo
  • Then using a exact-o knife I made two slits and added the felt scarf using glue dots to keep the scarf in place.
  • The final touches was the sentiment, bakers twine, and the little holly cluster.  This is from the Carols of Christmas set.  I used Lemon Lime Twist marker and Flitry Flaming marker and colored the image then stamped it.

I love how this card came out so clean and simple.  It really is just fun to step out from time to time and experiment and see what you can come up with.  The second card.  I used the Flamingos from the Pop of Paradise stamp set and the ornaments from Carols of Christmas to create a little Christmas scene.  This reminds me of a big city Christmas window display.

  • This card was done in layers.  Each image was stamped with either Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, or Perfect Plum.
  • The second step was to then stamp each image with versa mark and heat embossed with clear embossing Powder.  Then Heat embossing each image.
  • The third step was to add the watercolor wash in Lemon Lime Twist
  • Then for a little interest I  stamped the Lemon Lime Twist and Perfect Plum ornaments a second time.  And die cut them out.  After die cutting them, I added them on top of the existing ornaments.  Either directly or by popping them up with a mini dimensional
  • The felt scarfs are add just like the other card.  I cut little slits in the paper to feed the felt through.  Then using glue dots to keep the scarfs in place.

I really enjoyed creating these whimsical Christmas Card.  It is always fun to look at your stamps and come up with something different.  I love looking at Instagram getting ideas for cards.  I have seen a few other cards similar to this which gave me the idea to try something different with these flamingos.

Let’s be friends forever….

Friendship is one of the great joys in life.  It is something that should be celebrated!  Eastern Places bundle has a great stamp that celebrates all things friends.  “let’s be friends forever”  This sentiment is just so perfect!!!

Eastern Places Bundle

This bundle is so much fun! All the different dies work together to make fun flowers and medallions. Then the stamp set coordinates with the dies to add accents and different shapes to the dies! What fun 😍

  • The background is  faux marbling made just like yesterday’s cards.  Using shaving cream, ink, embossing paste, and a catalyst.
  •  Square cards are all the rage right now!!! Didn’t know that??? I just declared it because, I have been making lots of square cards lately.
  • The vellum was die cut with one on the Eastern Places dies. Then also cut out with the layering circle die that was just slightly larger.
  • After heat embossing the sentiment with silver embossing powder, I added a little glue behind the letters and added the Lemon Lime Twist circle.  This helped the sentiment stand out and it gave me a place to add stampin’ dimensionals.

This “all the rage” square card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 .   The paper was cut so that it measures 5 1/2 inches on one side and 11 inches on the other.  And is scored at 5 1/2 inches.  The layers (working inwards) are Card base (Basic Gray) 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 after scoring and folding as above,   Lemon Lime Twist  5 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches, Soft Sky 5 1/8 by 5 1/8 inches, Silver embossed 5 5/8 by 5 5/8 inches, Lemon Lime Twist 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches,  faux marbling 4 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches

Tie Dye fun! #tiedyebackgrounds

There is a super fun technique going around that results in a tie dye look.  I first saw this technique in a Stampin’ Up! demonstrators Facebook group and I was just amazed by the beauty!!! I have experimenting with this technique a bit.  You can see another card here.  I even used the technique for the cover of a journal I am working on for the Hacking the Color Wheel class I’m taking.   Then today it showed up in my inbox from splitcoast stampers.  Check out the tutorial here.
I love playing with different techniques that are so unique each time you use it! The key to this is to pick colors that work well together.  Soft colors are just as beautiful as bright colors! I am just drawn to bright colors, so that is what I use the most!

  • The tie dye panel is “dyed” with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Creating a two color background panel is a great way to highlight different areas of a card! The Lemon Lime Twist has gold behind it. The white section gold!!! This helps bring out the gold medallions
  • The Eastern Gold vinyl stickers are just awesome!!! They are really high quality stickers.
  • I think this is my favorite of the new sentiments!!! It is in the Just add text stamp set
