Beautiful Day for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

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.

My Top of the List Favorite from the new Catalog is the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  Actually, it and all that is in that Suite of products!  From the banner above, it would appear that Brian King loves this paper as well!!  My card for today focuses on quite a few of the products, but especially the DSP.

 

Love What You Do, 148042

 

As I said above, I have used quite a few products from this AWESOME Suite.  In doing so, I have a lot more texture than I normally do.  Of course the star is the Designer Series Paper.  As an unexpected touch, I let it be the main focal point and added a little extra with different ribbons. (All of the supplies are listed at the very bottom of the post.)

The sentiment is part of a “Must Have” stamp set as well.  It is Love What You Do and has beautiful flowers, backgrounds, and sentiments.  I know I say it is all a Must Have, but this catalog is really over the top as far as I am concerned and I do want it all!

One other unexpected item on my card is the lighter base color, which is Petal Pink.  It is an Oh My! color.  I think it has a touch of light peach to the pink.  Whatever it may have, it is gorgeous.  And it pairs well with other colors both bold and bright.

Thank you for stopping by my page on the Blog Hop.  I very much appreciate it and love to read your comments.

I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Deb Cozzone . There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

    It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

Spring

I am once again focusing on some of the retiring products.  Today’s feature is the Host Rewards Stamp Set, Background Bits, and the ever popular Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

 

Background Bits, 144029

 

Because this is a Host Rewards stamp set, the only way you can get this gorgeous set is to either host a party, or have a qualifying order.  But, since you are stocking up on your favorite retiring product, this is the perfect time to do either one.

I love the soft Spring colors of this DSP and I tried to coordinate the stamped flowers by using the Wisteria Wonder marker to tie it together.  And of course the Petal Burst Embossing Folder always is a great pairing for flower stamps and/or DSP.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  If you are interested in earning this set before it is gone, please let me know.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Stained Glass

I have a beautiful Stained Glass card today that I made as a sympathy card.  There is no sentiment on the front, so actually it could be for any occasion.  But I needed a sympathy card and was thrilled with how it turned out.  I hope you love it as well.

 

Graceful Glass 6 X 6 Designer Vellum, 146344

 

Doesn’t this actually look like a piece of stained glass?  And the best part is that you do not have to stamp or emboss it.  This is a piece of the Graceful Glass 6X6 Designer Vellum.  I trimmed the panel down to fit on a standard card and then just colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  There are more colors coming in the new catalog and I cannot wait.

This piece is so pretty that it doesn’t really need anything to surround it.  I even thought of making a taller/skinnier card. But in the end decided on the regular A2 size.  To even things out I used to the Softly Falling Embossing Folder to give some texture to the side panels you see.  Sometimes a little bit is all you need.

If you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to hear from you and will be happy to send you the new catalog as soon as they are available.   Better yet, join my team and get a lot of the new products in your Starter Kit.  You get to pick everything for your Starter Kit.  It is the ultimate shopping spree!  Contact me and let’s chat.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I have a list of everything I used in the Supply List at the bottom of the page.

Hope

I have been focusing on stamp sets that are retiring. For a bit of a change of pace, I am using one that is not retiring.  It is the Hold On To Hope Bundle from the Occasions Catalog.  However……the bundle price is going away.  Both the stamp set and dies are carrying over, they just will not have a bundled together price of 10% off.  Any bundles you are still considering should be snatched up now and save.  Every little bit saved helps!

 

Hold On To Hope Bundle, 145969

 

I kept this card pretty clean and simple.  Don’t you just love the details on the Cross?  I stamped the cross in Soft Suede and then the detailed one in Crumb Cake, and cut it out with the matching die.

Note:  A must have for detailed dies is the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet.  I always make a mess of glue on intricately cut items and there is no mess with the adhesive sheets.  Yay!!

For the flower swatch I colored the stamp with Old Olive and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.   To add some equal alignment, I added the little corner stamp in Old Olive as well.  I love the little guy!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I very much appreciate your support and I love to hear from you.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

March Pals Blog Hop – Easter

 

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 decided to make an Easter card for today.  Although my card without the added bunny would be great for many occasions.  I think I just have chocolate bunnies on my mind 🙂

 

Blossoming Basket, 147124

 

My little bunny is sort of tucked into the flowers, but he was what I wanted for Easter.  And it is not too far out there to imagine receiving a basket of flowers with a chocolate bunny mixed in.

I used a couple of stamp sets to get this card completed.  The basket of flowers is from Blossoming Basket, a SAB item.  The Happy Easter sentiment is from You’re Inspiring, and the bunny is from A Good Day.  However, I could have made the exact same card, minus bunny, with just the Blossoming Basket as there are two great sentiments in that set.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I pulled my color combination from the beautiful DSP.  It is the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It is definitely a WOW.  I could have added the Peekaboo Peach to the combination as well.  I chose that instead of yellow for the flowers.  Using the Stampin’ Blends are so addicting and just down right FUN !!

I separated the basket and the sentiment to allow more of the beautiful colors from the DSP to show.  But because the white space is pretty big on the basket and sentiment, the business of the DSP does not overpower.  I hope you like this layout.

I appreciate you visiting today.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on April 11, 2018 for our Family First Hop. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that.

Daffodil Spring

I may be a tad early, but I have made my first Easter/Spring card.  This could go either way by simply changing the sentiment.  For me, when the daffodils begin breaking through the the dirt, it is Spring!!  My allergies hate it , but I love it.  When I saw this set in the Occasions Catalog, I knew it had to come to my house and was on my preorder.

 

Stampin' Up!, You're Inspiring, Jackie Beers, stampinup, your inspiring, jackiebeers

You’re Inspiring, 145808

 

I call Daffodils and Jonquils both Daffodils.  I never know the proper names, so please forgive me if I hav it backwards again.  I did start out coloring the entire flower yellow but then thought of the peach and decided to give it my own twist on nature.  And of course, I used the Stampin’ Blends….again  🙂

The large circle layer is a twist on the “Highlighting” technique that was popular years ago.  It is another one of the discoveries I made while cleaning out my craft room.  And the strip of DSP from Delightful Daisy is a great way to use the leftovers from the beautiful paper that you cannot stand to throw away!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great beginning to your week and will visit tomorrow.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
