I gotta feeling…

I gotta feeling

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. 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.  Abstract Impressions stamp set is a beautiful layering flower set that has a wonderful artistic style!  So of course, I decided to use this set for the Blog Hop Today!

Abstract Impressions Bundle

Abstract Impressions Bundle

I love that Abstract Impressions is Bundled with a floral die and butterfly!  I gotta feeling you will too!  The floral die is absolutely gorgeous!!

The color combination is all new Stampin’ Up! colors as well!  Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, and  Gray Granite

Abstract Impressions Thank You

  • The rose is stamped using all three layering stamps. The base is Mango Melody stamped off once. The second layer is Mango Melody at full strength.  The third layer is Grapefruit Grove. Some of the roses have all three layers. Some only have two of the three layers.
  • The purple flower is Highland Heather for the base. This color stamps a lot darker than it looks when dry.  Then Gorgeous Grape stamped on top
  • The leaves are Granny Apple Green. The inside of the leaves are Granny Apple Green stamped off once
  • The final step was to add some Gray Granite dots by statistically inking one of the flower stamps

Spring has sprung…

Spring is just around the corner! Here in Alabama the trees are beginning to bloom and all the early spring flowers are up, daffodils, tulips, and others.  We had a warm February that got things rolling towards an early spring .But, old man winter is not through with us yet . The mornings have been cold (Alabama cold, mind you) and crisp . The birds are chirping there happy songs and the Pals are hopping along .

 

Welcome to the Pals March 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Spring has Sprung”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with Spring or Spring-related projects. You may see floral, Easter or other general Spring-inspired designs. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I love this time of the year when the birds start chirp their happy song.  It means Spring is right around the corner! One stamp set in the Occasions Catalog brings all the spring Birds home!  Flying Home makes me think about all the migrating birds flying back to their favorite backyard bird houses.

Flying Home Stamp Set

I think this may be the sweetest stamp set I have ever seen!   It just screams cute!!  In some ways it is very retro . In other ways it has a modern feel . So, as it once was said… what once was old is new again!

  • The bird houses were stamped with memento ink. Then colored with the Stampin’ Blends. Often I use my Prisms Color Markers along with the Blends .But, lately I have been trying to just use my Blends .
  • The card base is from Sale-A-Bration .The Tutti Frutti card bases and envelopes!  These card bases and envelopes are amazing! I love the colors . And the patterns make it easy to add anything you want on top!
  • The Hello is from Banners For You

The next two cards are actually the inspiration to create the card above as a clean and straight lined version!  Not all cards have to have lots of texture to be beautiful!  I love the straight forward version above as much as I love the full of layers and texture versions below!!!   All three cards could be made either way and still be beautiful!

  • Layers of texture are  like the branches, twigs, and twine that birds gather to build a nest. Layers of twine, ribbon, and vellum come together to build a backdrop for a sweet nest of birds
  • The stamped image is once again colored with the blends . To be honest, this would be a great set to also color with the. Stampin’ Write markers . The images for the most part are small enough that streaking is not an issue if you work fast . So, please do not feel that you must have Stampin’ Blends to color these images
  • The Hello Friend is from the Stamp Set A Good Day!

  • Yet again lots of layers and texture
  • The flower and the vellum leaves are from the dies May Flowers .These dies are perfect for all your Spring crafting needs
  • The flower and the vellum leaf are steeped up a bit .  I used my Stampin’ Blends in the light Daffodil Delight to quickly color both .
  • The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday Stamp set . It was to long for the space .So, I simply cut it in half . That was after trying several , and I mean SEVERAL different options . Finally, yesterday morning it just came together like magic .
  • The final touch was to add the enamel shapes

I always live decorating my envelopes! The Tutti Frutti envelopes are so pretty it really does not take much to add a little something special to them.  I used the little small birds and butterfly’s in the Flying Home set to add the extra touches for my envelopes

Merry Café

Yesterday, I shared a sweet pouch box that is perfect for a set of cards. You can see the pouch box here. Today, I’m sharing the cards that will go into the pouch as a gift! I used the same products to make coordinating cards.  The Merry Café is defiantly a favorite stamp set.

Merry Café

I love how this set coordinates with the Coffee Café bundle in the annual catalog.  The little perk up even coordinates with the small coffee cup die. What fun!

Coffee Café Bundle

I mix and match stamps from both sets all the time! I love the sketched look of the coffee cup in Merry Café so I use it a lot!!! I also adore the little coffee beans in the Coffee Café set !   They both go perfectly with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

I adore this paper! I seem to be wanting to use it on every project! The colors are just amazing and there are some watercolor wash pages that I just love!!

  • The colors are Cajun Craze, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip.
  • The thanks a latte (Coffee Café) is stamped in Soft Sky!  I promise thought, I’m wondering if I used Pool Party to ink my Soft Sky Ink Pad.
  • The coffee cup(Merry Café) is stamped on designer series paper then die cut with the coordinating dies Along with the coffee lid on Cajun Craze
  • The coffee cup sleeve is die cut in Crumb Cake
  • The little adorable espresso beans are stamped on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink
  • The background is a few stamps from the Merry Café set using Old Olive and Cajun Craze

 

  • The colors used are Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black
  • The Daffodil Delight layer is embossed with the layers leaves embossing folder
  • The sentiment is from the Merry Café set. How fun is that sentiment
  • The yellow peeping out behind the Cajun Craze coffee cup sleeve is made by cutting a yellow sleeve then cutting it in half and glueing it to the back of the other coffee  sleeve.

The card base is a Very Vanilla Note Cards (4 bar size)  The Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and envelopes are perfect for this size of card!!!  The layers are as fallows

  • 3 3/8 by 5 7/8 inches

I chose to use the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I love this set so very much! It is truly amazing!  And is available tomorrow September 1st in the new holiday catalog!!!! You are going to love, love, love this catalog!!!! Promise❤

Painted Harvest

There are so many amazing options with this beautiful stamp set! I just can’t seem to put it down!!! So, I decided to show you the versatility of this awesome stamp set!

  • The sunflowers are a two-step stamp. So, each flower base is stamped in Daffodil Delight. Then the top layer either Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, or Tangerine Tango
  • The next step was to add the centers in Smoky Slate with dots in Basic Gray and Lemon Lime Twist
  • Then add some ink splitters in Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate, and Daffodil Delight
  • The leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and punched with the new coordinating leaf punch.
  • The sentiment stamped in Smoky Slate and punched with the 2 inch circle punch. The background is the 2 1/4 inch circle punch
  • The gingham ribbon soften the card bringing it all together!

The second card is a quick and easy card that was super fun to make. I flipped the sketch and rotated the circle and banner. How fun is that????

 

  • The background was made with the Embossing Paste and Lemon Lime Twist ink refill. I just mixed a little ink into the Embossing Paste till I had the desired color.
  • Using one of the Decorative Mask and a pallet knife I added the texture to the card.
  • The flower was stamped in Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach, The leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, The sentiment in Peekaboo Peach
  • The ribbon is the new Burlap Ribbon in the Holiday Catalog

A fun color combination for GDP097

The Global Design Project has a great color combination for us this week. It is Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi, and Crumb Cake.  Be sure you hop over to Global design Project and see all the fab. inspiration the design team has for us this week!  I think you will be quite impressed with what they came up with.  Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom and see all the wonderful creations by those playing along.

This lovely color combination is quite vestal. And should be kept in mind for all seasons. It makes beautiful summer flowers, awesome fall leaves, and would be wonderful for a modern Christmas Card!

I decided to pull out a stamp I had not used in a while. Defiantly Dahlia. This is a large background stamp that is us

I thought berry burst would be the perfect color for this sweet flower! And of course, I made another square card with it!!! I paired the Dahlia with a sentiment in the Climbing Orchids stamp set. I made three versions of the card for y’all today. The first two are the Global Design color combination. The third was a happy accident ?

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst on Shimmery White paper. You can’t really tell in the picture. But, this paper gives the stamped images a beautiful finish.
  • The thinking of you was stamped in Wild Wasabi.
  • The third step was to add the layers and ribbon

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst again.
  • Then I used a baby wipe to add texture to the flower.
  • Next using another baby wipe I added Crumb Cake.

  •  The Dahlia was stamped in Basic Gray. You can see little spots of Berry Burst. That’s because I did not clean my stamp before reinking. I was planning on using Berry Burst, but picked up Basic Gray.
  • This one was so pretty just the way it was. That I decided to keep it extra simple and not add a bow
  • I really love how the Basic Gray picks up the detail of this stamp

The final cards are 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.  The Shimmery white layer is 4 1/8 by 4 1/8.  Then each layer is built out from there.  The two Wild Wasabi cards the layers are 4 1/8 , 4 3/8, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.  The Basic Gray card layers are 41/8, 41/4, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.
