Spring time hello for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by a Spring Celebrations theme.  What fun!  Stampin’ Up! catalogs are filled with so many great ideas for Spring-themed projects – Easter, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Spring weddings…  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 adore the work of our guess hopper, Amy Koenders. (aka Amy K!!!)  She is full of tallent! Her clean and perfect style was my insperation for today’s card.  Amy’s cards alway have a splash if razle dazzle…Can you tell, I’m excited to be hopping along with herūüėĀ seriously though!!!! 

 I really thought a lot about what stamp set I wanteded to feature for our Spring celebration blog hop.  I decided that nothing says spring like a mason jar full of flowers. Simple yet so perfect!!  (hummm now who does that remind you of????) 

This bundle is full of wonderfulness!! You have everything for the most perfect mason jars ever, flowers, a gold fish, and lightning bugs (fire flies to some) … If that was not enough…The stamp set has great sentaments. 

  • The striped paper was the bases of the color palette.  By the Shore is a great set of designer series paper!!  Pool Party, Mint Macaroon, Dapper Denim, and Calypso Coral.  I added in So Saffron for some of the flowers..
  • Very Vanilla and Whisper White do like eavh other…I was worried about combining Very Vanilla and Whisper White, but I think they play well together in this case…
  • The Brick Wall texture impressions adds a layer of intrest to the background behind the flowers.

Because, the card was a little larger because of the leaves hanging off the top.  I decided to use my envelope punch board and makeca envelope for this card.  You guys know I like a pretty envelope so, I classed this one up with the striped paper!!! 

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

Birthday Bliss

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by a Birthday Bliss theme.  What fun!  Stampin’ Up! catalogs are filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make birthdays special – and we are excited to share our creations with you today.  We are also excited to welcome guest designer Michelle Last to our team’s blog hop this month.  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 y’all are excited as I am to see all the amazing projects the InKing Royalty have instore for us!!!  I can not wate to hop along!!  Today I am sharing two projects made with the Cake Crazy stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I love this set so much! It has a super fun layered cake that can be made in many different combinations….I just love the words that are included in the set.  They are some of my favorite words…super, crazy, fantastic, and spectacular!  Who doesn’t want to be wished a spectacular day. 

Cake Crazy Stamp Set

All the angles just add that much more fun!!!  I also, love the simple design this set allows for… The stamp set makes such a dramatic entrance that the card design and elemants can be quite simple! 

The color insperation is based upon the bow. 

Cake Crazy

  • This adorable bow is from the cupcakes and carousel accessory pack.  Along with that gorgeous ombree ribbon 
  • Colors are Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Crushed Curry

The inside of the card says Birthday with the little bow tie from the Cake Crazy stamp set.  

I have been watching a documentary on Netflix called Abstract. It is quite fascinating. The stories of how different artest come to and through their process. It has helped me understand my own process of card making and all the different aprochess to the process. There is no right or wrong way! Yeppie …And, everyonce in a while the designer says something I really conect to…like less is more…or ..nothing great has ever come out of a deadline…the world is full of people that are quite driven in the arts/design.  The weard reality in witch they live is amazingly awesome!  Check it out…

    Love is in the Air for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

    Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop – our first hop of 2017!  Today’s hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take “Love is in the Air”.  This is the best time of year to start planning your Valentine’s Day projects.  There are amazing, new products in Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog – and NOW is the best time to get them.  We are excited to share our projects with you and hope they inspire 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.  

    Last night when i went to bed i was thinking about what I wanted to share with you guys.  I decided on a watercolor background with beautiful circles.  Then I would add a heart that was a balloon. Well, that was the Idea…I was happy, I would get the chance to play with the new watercolor pencils. Yeppie ūüėĀ  I even knew what I was going to use to make the circles with…

    So tonight when I got home from work, I started on my card. The first step was to tape down some watercolor paper on a board.  I use an old wood clip bard.  Then I used my layering circles dies and traced some circles with a light-colored prismacolor pencil. (ginger root was the color)  And so then the fun began.  Using my new Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils, a paint brush, and some water I painted the circles.  Dried them and painted some more.  This process is not fast!  It took me about an hour.  Witch, I was not fully expecting. And is really what caused the next event.  Not, that the process was hard.  I was just being slow and carefull!  Trying my best to be like K. Warner Designs……Anyhow, I went and cut down the paper into two small squares.  Stamped love on the card.  And slapped it on a 4 by 4 card base.  Just like I know what I was doing!!!!! Woops…Where did the heart go that was suppose to be a balloon.  Anyway, I love the end results balloon or no balloon.

    Winter Wishes

    winter-wishes-blog-hop

    Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop!¬† While Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are actively ordering from the 2017 Occasions Catalog and earning products from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration brochure, we are also getting ready for the upcoming holidays.¬† We are excited to share some fun winter-themed projects with you!¬† Today’s Winter Wishes Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on Winter.¬† After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

    Recently I was scrolling though Instagram, as I often do, and discovered a great post by Fox and Hazel where she used acrylic paint to decorate her envelopes. ¬†So, I pulled out my paints and got to work. ¬†When I finished the envelope I decided that I liked them so much that I would make matching cards. ¬† The supplies I used are Decorative Mask (aka stencils) acrylic Paint in various colors, a palette knife, a paint splatter, Stampin’ Up sponges and Stamps, and a pint pin to address the envelopes.

    20161212_090958

    The first envelopes I made I simply scraped the paint across the envelope or card layer using the palette knife.  If you do not have a palette knife you could use an old gift card for this.   At this point, I also added splatters of paint using the funny looking splatter tool and my finger.

    20161212_085122

    I started off by testing several colors but settled on this variety of paint colors.  Copper, Pewter, light Gold, White, Hookers Green, Cadmium Red dark, and ocean blue/green

    20161212_090800

    The next step was to add stamping to the envelopes and the cards. ¬†I used a variety of stamps mostly current stamps by Stampin’ Up! ¬†A few tips. ¬†The photopolymer¬†stamps¬†seem to slide around a little on the paint. ¬†So you just have to be careful stamping over the paint.

    20161212_090603

    20161212_085245

    Then I decided to pull out the Decorative mask and the sponges.  I first tried to do this with the palette knife, but the effect was quite bold.  And more in your face than what I was looking for.  So the sponge was the way to go.  The sponge and paint added a soft look that is pleasing to the eye!

    20161212_085145

    There are several ways to make matching cards!  Different stamps and colors add a whole new feel to basically the same design.

    20161212_085212

    The deer antler card is one of the cards that I tried the palette knife with the Decorative Mask.  You can see how much bolder it is compared to the envelope below it.

    20161212_085300

    The Noel card did not photograph very well.  But, it is truly gorgeous.  I love the paint on the crumb cake base combined with the gold heat embossing!

    20161212_090525

    All that is left is to address the envelopes with your paint pen.  The Gold and Sliver gel pins would look wonderful with the stenciled envelopes.

    P.S. The address below is made up. ¬†I just wanted you to know what the envelopes look like finished. (even with my crappy handwriting) ¬†How cool would it be to live on Stampin’ Ave.

    20161212_085035

     

    I made a video for y’ll, so that you can see the process of making the ¬†cards! ¬†I hope you enjoy it :>

    thanks-blog-hop

    Welcome to this month’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop!¬† This month’s hop is dedicated to showing our thankfulness.¬† We are celebrating with thank you notes, cards that show our appreciation and projects of thanksgiving.¬† We are excited to share our projects with you and hope they inspire you to create!¬† 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 a amazing friend, Tracy. ¬†She is a super talented artist. Who truly defins the word artist, because she not only paints, she has made pottery, and has a very fablous jewlery business. ¬†Where she makes her own jewlery. ¬†If you fallow me on instagram or my personal facebook page. ¬†Then you know I am always going to paint class. ¬†Tracy is the mastermind behind the classes. ¬†Last month for my Birthday she gave me one of her peices of jewlery. ¬†A wonderful Crown with a bar that has “be awesome” hand stamped on it. ¬†How cool is that! ¬†We all know someone who goes above and beyond to make us feel special. ¬†Tracy is one of those people who always encurages and lights up a room. ¬†I am truly Thankful, Greatful, and Blessed to have her in my life.

    This card may look familiar to you. ¬†It is becuase, I made a simular card for a past blog hop. ¬†I promissed two ladies that I would share how the card was made with a video. ¬†What’s that???? ¬†A video!!!! ¬†Say What??? ¬†I was very nervious about doing this to be honest. ¬†It was one of my goals for this year. ¬†So, It was time to start getting over the fear and actually do it! ¬†I am amazied by all the over the top videos out there. ¬†I’m not going to tell you how many times I re did the audio. ¬†I just seem to freeze and my brian shuts off when the recorder starts. ¬†:> ¬†Anyway, here is the video all about how I made this lovely little thank you.

    Pasleys and Poseys

    This style of  card is really fun to make.  And once you figure out how.  You will be making theme all the time.  They are quick and easy to make.  And leave a lott of WOW factor!!!
