One Word – Green!

Posted by on Mar 20, 2019 in Uncategorized | 8 comments

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today – there’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! 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 really been enjoying a moment with very simple cards. There is always something refreshing in remembering the things that first brought you to paper crafting.  For me it was that moment when you stamped a perfect image!!! What could be better than stamping done right

I fell in love with the Seasoned with Kindness stamp set when I saw our fearless Inking Royalty Leander make an awesome card!  You can see Brian’s card here

Seasoned with Kindness

Seasoned with Kindness

This set just perfect for little hello and thank you cards.  Especially when paired with the sentiments in Varied Vases.

So, this is supposed to be all about green!  I picked two of my favorite Stampin’ Up! greens.  Call me Clover which is one of the current In Colors.  The second green is Mint  Macaron.  Mint Macaron is my absolute favorite Stampin’ Up! green.

  • The images were stamped with black ink
  • Then using Stampin’ Wright Markers the image was colored
  • The final step was to use a Mint Macaron border to bring the card together

  • I have been adoring white ink lately! I love how it look here on Mint Macaron paper!
  • The black border and sentiment makes the white pop!

  • Here the leaves are stamped in white. Then stamped in black ink all on Call me Clover

  • This card was also colored with Stampin’ Wright Markers.  Tiny images are often easier to color with the Stampin’ Wright Markers verses the Stampin’ Blends . The Stampin’ Wright Markers allows you to quickly color.  You can add two layers to create light and darks

Blog Loving Friends Spring Hop

Posted by on Mar 1, 2019 in Uncategorized | 9 comments

This is my second time hoping with this very talented group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. This month we are celebrating the upcoming spring season.  I can’t wait for 75 and sunny!!!

I have really taken a step back over the past few weeks and thought about basic stamping and how pretty it can be. There is something to be said about going back to the basics! Or in this case your first ❤. Stamping does not always have to lead to coloring, collage, ventage looks, and so on. We all should learn to embrace the simple elegance of a beautiful stamped image!  So, today I’m sharing a series of cards that are stamped in whisper white pigment ink.  The sentiments are all stamped in basic black.  This gives good contrast to the white stamping.  I adore clean and simple cards! They always seem to have a great modern feel to me!   I have been in mass production card making mood. Clean and simple cards definitely make mass production easier and fun!  So, here we go…

This card is not  necessarily a spring card.  Though I do think that being on the beach does scream spring break. This beach seems more exotic get away to me. Anyhow,  I really just wanted to share that this simple technique really works with just about style of stamp! I love how the white stamping on the gray looks like an etching

Some colors just scream spring! Coastal Cabana is definitely one of those colors!  I have been thinking about how I really wanted to use this swirly stamp from Beauty Abounds.  The white and simplicity of the card really allows for the beauty of the stamp shine!!!!

The Wonderful Romance stamp set is quickly becoming a favorite!  I truly love this set so much!! Granny Apple Green is another one of those. “It must be spring” colors!  This is truly a happy color!!!

The All That You Are stamp set has everything I love about stamping! Pretty images that are perfect for coloring. Yet, beautiful enough to be simply stamped. I kept each card quite simple. But, you could add thread, bakers twine, sequins, or enamel dots to spice it up a bit!

I have been longing to use the pretty roses in the Tea Together stamp set!  I’m hoping to get a moment to color them very soon! But, until then I will just stamp them to creat my one custom Designer Paper! What fun!!!

I hope you will give your white pigment ink a second look!  It really is a wonderful way to make several cards quickly. Especially now that we have a stamperatious.

I hope each of you will continue to hop along with the Blogging Friends Blog Hop! Happy Friday my sweet creative friends!
