Together

Making a special masculine card can be a little difficult.  Today’s card accomplishes this with the He’s All That Suite of products.

 

Stampin' Up!, He's All That, All That, He's The Man, Faux Suede Ribbon, Rustic Metal Dots, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

This card was for our anniversary.  It is fairly simple, but has some fun elements and the sentiment is spot on for us.  The He’s All That Bundle has some great masculine sentiments and some fun shapes to Die cut them.  The dies are the All That Dies.  This shape for the sentiment reminds me of the old fashioned Blue Ribbon award.  So finishing it with the Faux Suede Ribbon was perfect.

Papers

The He’s The Man Designer Series Paper has quite a different range of paper.  There are cars, camping, trees, and then more neutral prints.  This card includes cars and a neutral.  Using this layout is a great way to use less of one DSP piece,  And by using little strips for the under piece, you can use up all your scraps.  My paper packs end up with a lot of similar size pieces that I cannot bare to throw away.  This section is finished with a trio of the Rustic Metal Dots.

September InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This month’s blog hop is dedicated to leaves. As the weather begins to cool, the leaves begin to change colors and fall from the trees. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My Leaves

After beginning about three times I am happy to share with you my interpretation of the Leaves theme.  My version uses the Season of Chic Suite and a few other great products.

Stampin' Up!, Season of Chic, Texture Chic, Leaf Fall, Festive Pearls, Wink of Stella, Jackie Beers

Leaves

There are two different products for my leaves.  The first is the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder on the background.  This embossing folder has really great texture and the leaves sort of “fall” across the card.  Mine are embellished a bit with some Wink of Stella.  Sadly it does not show up very well in the photo.

The second set of “Leaves” are from the Season of Chic Bundle and Dies.  There are three different leaf dies used and are cut from the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper.

Layers

To complete the layers, I have the texture piece from the Season of Chic Dies.  It also is cut from a different piece of the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper.  This piece of DSP ties all of the colors used together.  And the final layer is for the sentiment.  The Thinking of You is from the same stamp set.  It is stamped using Early Espresso onto Petal Pink card stock.  For a final touch it has the addition of a single gold Pearl from Festive Pearls embellishments.

Christmas Cheer

Today’s card has a touch of whimsey to help bring in Christmas Cheer.  A mix of fun paper and stamps is a reason for cheer.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweet Candy Cane, Santa Express, Jackie Beers

Paper

This sweet piece of DSP is what gave me the idea for this card.  It is from the Santa Express Designer Series Paper.  And one sheet has four rows across of this scene.  So you can cut it into strips and then the width you want to use.  This piece is cut to 4 X 3.  So I can get 12 of these from one sheet of the DSP.

The bright colors of the DSP are also perfect for the Cheer of the card. Personally I love bright colors.  And Granny Apple Green is one of my favorites.  It is paired with Real Red for a bright and happy card.

Stamps and Dies

The large candy cane was chosen because of the candy cane in the DSP.  As I said, the DSP created this card!  The Sweet Candy Cane Bundle was one of my first purchases from the Mini Catalog.  The example in the catalog of this tag used on a real candy cane is what sold me.  And the sweet sentiments are all lovely.  Plus you get two candy cane stamps and both have matching dies.  You can cross the candy canes or have the direction you want for your project.

Finishes

The Real Red Ribbon on the tag serves two purposes.  It holds the tag, but also breaks up the Granny Apple Green.  And the Festive Pearls is never wrong for a touch of bling.  The touch of the green leaf on the tag was added to tie in the Shaded Spruce of the DSP.  And to give a little more color to the tag.  That leaf and the sentiment with Mistletoe Kisses are used on the inside of the card.

Rustic Birthday

Today’s card stars the Rustic Harvest Designer Series paper.  The gorgeous flowers and colors are a perfect fit to this time of year.

 

Stampin' Up!, Rustic Harvest, Biggest Wish, Happiness Abounds, Elegant Gems, Jackie Beers

Paper

The gorgeous Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper is so pretty.  These colors are perfect for Fall  but would work any time of year. One of my club ladies commented that she is never sure of the best way to use this type of paper when there is solid space.  This layout seems to fit that question perfectly.  Plus you can get more cards from one sheet of paper when not using nearly as large of a piece of it.

All of the colors used are pulled from this piece of DSP.  Merry Merlot is the card base color and not one I seem to use very often.  The Merry Merlot needed a warm and royal color to accompany it so I went with Mossy Meadow.  And surprisingly the large White layer fits well.  Maybe it is by pulling the white from the flowers in the DSP.

Stamps

Sentiments with different fonts are a definite favorite of mine.  The Biggest Wish stamp set is unique in my opinion.  It has the large and bold words, like the Happy, and then the same in the smaller cursive like the birthday.  It is a perfect mix and match type set with all of the most used sentiments.

Due to the fairly large open White section on the right of the sentiment layer, I knew something was needed there.  The small bunch of flowers came from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.  They are a different flower from the DSP but are colored the same.  And since they are not adjacent to the DSP it works fine. To add a bit of bling I went with a few of the Elegant Gems as a finishing touch.

Christmas Wishes

Today’s project involves the Leaves of Holly Bundle, which is an awesome stamp set and Dies.  It is a case of page 24 of the Mini Catalog.  Casing the catalog is a great way to get your creativity going.

 

Stampin' Up!, Leaves of Holly, Holly Berry Dies, Evening Evergreen Woven Ribbon, Fine Sparkle Gems, Jackie Beers

 

Bundle

The Leaves of Holly stamp set is special in that it has a two step stamping to give awesome definition to the leaves.  For my card I did not utilize that however.  This card has both stamps used, just not in the intended method.  By stamping a couple of each one, and in different colors, it gives a different look and shows extra  flexibility.

Using the matching Dies accomplishes a similar look as the double stamping.  The sentiment layer is part of the Dies and includes the two leaves on the left end of it.  Since those were attached to the sentiment layer, I added one more to go behind the opposite end.  And to bring in some of the Poppy Parade from the thin layer, I added the top layer die for those.  The berries also have double stamps and double die layers.

Finishing Touches

Since the sentiment layer was in White, I did not  want it to get lost on the White background in case it was longer than the stamped area.  So I added the Evening Evergreen Woven Ribbon behind.  The dark color helps make the White sentiment pop!  And the finishing touch is the little Poppy color of the Fine Sparkle Gems added to the sentiment layer.

Other Specials

Yesterday’s one day sale was great, but please do not forget the other great sales going on this month.  There are the Weekly Deals as well as the Perfect Partners.  You can get to both by clicking on my Shop Now button at the menu bar.  Both of these end at the end of the month, and we are halfway there!

Amazing

There are two amazing things I have to share with you today.  The first is the 24 Hour Sale that I mentioned yesterday.  It includes every stamp set in the Annual Catalog at 15% off!  (Note:  If it is part of a Bundle, it may still be less expensive to purchase the bundle!).  Plus, if you have been thinking of joining my Stampin’ Up! Team, it is a perfect day to do so.  You can add stamp sets to your Starter Kit with this discount.  That adds more stamps for your money.  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding that.

 

 

The second Amazing I have to share with you is the Amazing Year stamp set.  This set is small, flexible, and has sweet sentiments.  Those are things I love.

 

Stampin' Up!, Amazing Year, Painted Poppy, Cup of tea, Painted Texture, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

The fun package and the sweet sentiment are from the Amazing Year stamp set.  This little package is a favorite of mine because it can be used for so many different purposes.  And we should always celebrate our “Wonderful Friends”!  To pair with the other pieces used, I have added “splatter” from the Painted Poppy stamp set.  Plus the flower in the center of the package is from the Cup of Tea stamp set.  It matches the embellishment on the sentiment layer.

Layers

Layers are something I tend to use in my cards.  And this one needed some stamping or texture on the layer due to the open space.  By using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder, it got quite a lot of texture and some definition as well.  Going along with this is the two layers of the sentiment.  Those are simply banner cut using my Paper Snips for a fast added look.  Then the addition of the raised flower on the gift box and the Fun Flowers Resin shapes on the sentiment were the final touches.

Sending Cheer

A touch of 3D is a fun addition to a card.  For today’s project I have added one of the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes for a “bubbly” 3D look.

 

Stampin' Up!, Bottled Happiness, Vintage Bottle Punch, Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes, Starry Sky Metallic Ribbon, Hydrangea Dies, Sun Prints, Jackie Beers

Bottled Happiness

The Bottled Happiness Bundle includes a wonderful stamp set with a variation for bottles along with floral and sweet sentiments.  It also includes the Vintage Bottle Punch.  Punch Bundles are a wonderful deal in my opinion as they are less expensive than Die Bundles.  And to complete this Bundle, you can get the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes to make a 3D look using the punch and stamps.

For this card I did not use a bottle stamp, but did use the punch and shaker dome.  After layering the two DSP pieces on the Basic White, I used the punch and cut the bottle.  The shaker domes have adhesive already applied to the front rim and the back.  Simply remove the front adhesive cover and slide the dome into place.  Mine is filled with the Effervescent Elements.  These little bubbles are adorable!.  After filling as you wish, just remove the back adhesive covering to close the dome.  (For my card I added a scrap of Basic White a bit larger than the shaker dome to stick to the back.)  That ensured the bubbles were contained while I added these layers to the card base.

Sun Prints

These two gorgeous DSP pieces are from the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack.  By using both the Night of Navy and the Sahara Sand pieces it softens the look a bit.  They compliment each other perfectly and still allow the bottle of bubbles to star.  You may prefer to have the DSP showing through the bottle, but I was afraid that would be too much.  However I did save the punched out bottle.  It is applied to the inside of the card for a little extra touch.

 

 

Finishes

Between the beautiful DSP and the bottle it did not take much to complete this card.   Besides, I did not want to cover the pretty Sun Prints DSP.  So I went with a small tag which perfectly fit the nice sentiment.  The tag is from the Hydrangea Dies.  And the sentiment is from the Bottled Happiness stamp set.  To finish the tag I added a bow using the Starry Sky Woven Metallic Ribbon.

Thank you for visiting!

Blended Friend

An easy technique and a Make My Monday Challenge are the basis of today’s card.  And a Dragonfly Garden image completes the card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Dragonfly Garden, Deckle Rectangles, Blending Brushes, Heart Pearls, Jackie Beers

 

Make My Monday Challenge

The new challenge on Make My Monday is to have “Friend” in the sentiment.  That is a fairly easy one to accomplish.  And you can submit cards to this challenge as well.  Simply click on the icon below and you will be taken to the blog post.  Check out what the other design team members created for their Friend card.

Background

This fun background was equally fun to make.  It was made using the Blending Brushes.  This is not something I do regularly but am enjoying more and more.  But first I have to mention the outline of the blended area.  As has happened a few times previously, I found the piece on my messy desk!  It was the negative from having cut one of the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  So I added some removable tape and placed it on top of the White layer.

The two colors I used are Balmy Blue and Highland Heather for the blending.  Balmy Blue was added to about two thirds of the area.  Then beginning at the opposite end I started the Highland Heather.  There is not a lot of overlap, but there must be a little bit.  The Deckle edge still shows fairly clearly and I love that!

Stamps 

Another thing I like about this card is the simplicity.  The stamped image from Dragonfly Garden is done with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It gives the illusion of a shadow.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento as well and left with no layers.  That was a little hard to do since I love layers!

Finishing 

To complete the card I went with a little darker card base.  By using Gorgeous Grape it seems to draw out more of the Highland Heather color.  And the final touch was adding a single Heart Pearl next to the sentiment.  This was a fun and fairly quick card to make.  Now I am looking at my stamps for other “shadow” images!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Cheerful Basket Slider Card

Making Fun Fold cards is one of the techniques I love!  Today’s fun fold stars the Cheerful Basket stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Cheerful Basket, Hello Harvest, Very Best Occasions, Design A Daydream, Double Oval Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

There are a variety of stamp sets used on this card.  It is definitely a mix and match card!  And that is one of the things I love about stamping.  With fall colors in mind, I wanted a Fall look.  The first step is the basket.  It is from the Cheerful Basket stamp set.  The floral inside the basket is from the Hello Harvest stamp set.  By using a little masking at the rim of the basket I was able to cover the open area.  Plus an extra sunflower that is raised up gives detail and completes the covering.

More Stamps Punch

The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions stamp set.  Sentiment sets are wonderful and especially when they have a good variety!  To help the sentiment pop on the basket, I used the smaller cut out of the Double Oval Punch.  By adding a couple of the Rustic Metallic Dots the sentiment looks like a sign on the basket.  And was a perfect fit.

Papers and Colors

Choosing the colors normally comes from the papers.  But this one came more from the floral arrangement.  The card base is Calypso Coral with a layer of Granny Apple Green.  Luckily I found a matching DSP piece in the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper pack.  This huge pack is part of the Annual Catalog Host Rewards.

Fun Fold

This card was cased from Connie Stewart.  She has a great video of how to make it, so I am not going to duplicate.  It is pretty easy though and I love that.  Here is a view of how it opens.

 

There are similar cards with the three strips that I have made previously.  This one has additional folds and a tight closure.

I hope you have a great day!
