InKing Royalty blog hop -Sneak Peek 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog.  We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog  – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek 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 happy to be sharing with you the today the Lovely Laurels dies and the Lovely friends Stamp Set.  The Lovely Laurels thinlet dies are quite unique.  They remind me of Roman times. The banner in the dies is quite lovely!!! I particularly like how you can put two together to make one big banner.  These dies were a must have for me!! 

These dies pair perfectly with the Lovely Friends Stamp Set.  This set is full of great sentaments and a beautiful font.  

I paired these with the New InColor Berry Burst, Oh My Stars Texture Impressions Embossing Folder, Lovely Words thinlits and Copper Trim.

Two very similar cards.  I love how you can make a few changes to a card and makes something all new. 

  • The laurels were die cut from thick whisper white.
  • I pressed the versa mark ink pad against the die cut. Then heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.  I did this twice
  • The friend dies is done the same way
  • The laurel and the banner is only glued down in certian areas.  This allowed for lift and texture.

  • The laurel was die cut in the New Berry Burst InColor.
  • Using one of my favorite (new to metechniques), I stamped one of the texture stampes (timeless texture stamp set)  in versa mark and then heat embossed it with copper embossing powder
  • Using fast fuse to glue the laurel down to the paper.
  • Stampin’ dementials under the banner to add depth.

Blog hop days make me so happy! I love seeing what all the Royals are creating.  I’m so lucky to be apart of such a uber talented group.

    InKing Royalty Retiring InColors Blog Hop

    • Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop!  Today’s hop is filled with projects inspired by the Stampin’ Up!’s retiring 2015-2017 In Color Collection – our tributes to Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder.  What fun!  We’ve really enjoyed playing with these amazing colors over the past two years – and 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 have so enjoyed the Retiring InColors. They really have been fun to work with! Mint Macaron has been a favorite from day one!!! Along with Watermelon Wonder 😍 Other colors have grown on me, such as Tip Top Taupe!!! Truly the best neutral ever!!!  Lets not forget, Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush… These colors are just delightful.  Though I am sad that these colors are leaving us, I am super excited about the NEW InColors available in June…yeppie 💞

    I paired our Retiring colors with the Special Reasons Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog.

    Special Reasons Stamp Set

    This stamp set is all the name suggests. It is perfect for making those extra special cards.  The flowers are just perfect and the leaves are two-step stamps adding extra texture. There are dies that pair with the stamp set making even more flower and leaves combinations.

    • The background is watercolor stripes of Mint Macron on Shimmery White.  Adding layers of color over each other for a deeper color that blends out to the original stripes of color
    • The flowers are stamped in Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon.  They are die cut with coronating dies
    • The leaves are stamped in Mint Macron. The vanes are stamped in Cucumber Crush
    • Tip Top Taupe is brought in as “the best neutral” for the sentiment

    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 her😁 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!!!

    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 😁  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.
