InKing Royalty October Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! There are so many ways to say, “Thank you!” – today’s blog hop is filled with projects that share our gratitude. Stampin’ Up!’s catalogs (both the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog) are filled with so many fun products that help us show our gratitude – 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 chose the Painted Harvest, and matching products, for my Grateful Card.  I  have been so pleasantly surprised by the variety of uses for this stamp set.  I do not think I would ever get tired of using it.  Here is my Gather Together card.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I would have never thought I would use Lemon Lime Twist in so many combinations when it first appeared earlier this year.  But I have discovered it to be a very versatile color.  I pulled it directly from the Painted Autumn DSP on this outing.  It and the Cajun Craze were the prominent colors in the DSP and were perfect together.

The wreath is created with only the Lemon Lime Twist for both stamps of the wreath.  And they were both stamped full strength.  The lighter shades, almost tan looking variations, are just from the stamp itself.  Now you see part of why I adore this stamp set!!  I added the speckle stamp for my berries.  At first I was disappointed that I need to re-ink my pad, but then I liked the lighter touch of the Cajun Craze.  It’s funny how that works sometimes.

I truly adore this sentiment!  It is something I know I should think of more often.  It is very appropriate.

Hug In a Mug

The card I designed for today is my first one with this super cute set from the Holiday Catalog called Hug In A Mug!  Who would not love a Hug In A Mug?  I adore that name.  The set seems to be a little bit of a sleeper set possibly due to the Coffee Cafe in the Annual and then the seasonal coffee in the Holiday Catalogs.  But this one is just really cute.  I hope you will give it a look.

This card is a CASE from one of the Make ‘n Takes we did at World Card Making Day.  I loved the mug of steaming cocoa with the sentiment.  I added the hearts to the Pool Party layer to go along with the sentiment also.  Because of the quilt and the sentiment, I believe this card could be used for so many occasions.  A hug and a quilt are just year round love!

I have paired the stamp set with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  This quilt pattern just emphasizes the Hug!  At least that is what I think of when I see a hand quilted quilt.  Also it brings back wonderful memories of my childhood!

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

These are the unlikely trio of colors I used for this card.  I would have never added the Lemon Lime Twist to these other two.  I did pull all three colors from the DSP.  And since it works in the DSP, it must work here.   I thought it would make the sentiment POP.  I hope you agree…..otherwise you are probably thinking I have lost my mind !  LOL…

Remember that today is the last day for the World Card Making Day Sale!!  It is also the last day to sign up for the October Paper Pumpkin….remember that October and November are coordinating this year.  I cannot wait to see what they are!

Fall Acorns

Here in Atlanta it actually feels a little like Fall today.  That is a welcome change for us.  So I have a super cute Fall card to show you.   I have used the much overlooked Count My Blessings stamp set.  At first glance this set may say  Fall, but I believe most of it can be used any time of year.

 

Stampin' UP! County My Blessings, Jackie Beers, stampinup, County my blessings, jackiebeers

County My Blessings, 144790

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

My color inspiration was from the acorns and I chose fairly traditional Fall colors.  I did use my Aqua Painter with Pumpkin Pie for the tips of the leaves and then feathered that into the old olive.  The background is Soft Suede ink stamped onto Soft Suede card stock,  I sometimes forget to do the simple things to make our own DSP, so to speak.  It really is quick and easy.

This card is not at all difficult to do, even with the water coloring.  More layers sometimes make it look like more I do believe.

A quick tip for the ribbon accent:  I cut a strip of ribbon and tape each end to the back of my panel.  Then cut a smaller piece and simply tie it around the attached strip.  I get a pretty close to perfect little knot and do not need extra fingers for attempting to tie the ribbon pieces in front and yet keep it tight around the panel.  I never could do that very well!!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I love hearing from you and I hope you will try a quick project like this one.  The measurements I used are below and the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great day!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 Old Olive folded in half for the base
  • 4 X 5 1/4 Whisper White
  • 3 3/4 X 5 Soft Suede
  • 2 3/4 X 2 7/8 Old Olive
  • 2 1/2 X 2 5/8 Shimmery White for watercoloring

Metallic Thank You

This card is my first using the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Oh My !!  This paper is gorgeous.  The picture of my card, and the photos in the catalog, do not do it justice.  It is awesome !

 

Stampin' Up! Labels To Love, stampinup labels to love, Jackie Beers, jackiebeers

Labels to Love, 144967

My plan was to showcase the beautiful DSP and the oversized banner was what I chose.  Because of the gold, I could not decide on a base color.  By going with the white, it keeps it clean, but I needed something to highlight the gold.  So I decided to add the little bit of black.

I have been trying to use these beautiful Foil Snowflakes since I got them before the catalog even went live.  And all of a sudden there it was, the perfect spot for the snowflake!  I added the strip of black as if the snowflake is a wreath or a hanging ornament.  I am not sure which idea I prefer.

The sentiment is from the “must have” set Labels To Love.  The set covers several holidays.  This sentiment I believe can be used at any time.  I rarely heat emboss, ( maybe once a year! ).  However with the gold in the DSP and the snowflake, I had to emboss the sentiment.  I am so proud of myself that it turned out well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very  much appreciate you looking at my creations and for the nice comments.

Give Thanks

I have another Fall card for today.  Although to Give Thanks is something that could be used year round.  I have used the “direct to paper” technique again to showcase this simple punched sentiment.

 

Stampin' Up! Labels To Love, Jackie Beers

Labels To Love, 144967

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I really like this color combination.  It is soft on the “direct to paper” technique but stands out on the card stock surrounding it.  And the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon is just a must have!!  It is gorgeous and so easy to work with.

If you missed my previous “Direct To Paper Technique” card, you can see it HERE.

The sentiment is from the Label To Love set.  This set has sentiments for a variety of holidays and they all fit the Everyday Punch.  The punch is a bundle with the Merry Labels set, but it works with both sets.  A double winner!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is Crushed Curry cut 8 X 4 and folded in half
  • Pear Pizzaz layer is 3 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • Glossy card stock layer is 3 1/2 X 3 1/2

Hello Fall !

I love when Fall smells hit the air!  Although living in Atlanta we do not really get very much Fall.  But I am going to pretend for today’s card.

 

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe, Merry Cafe, stampinup , Jackie Beers

Merry Cafe’, 144965

 

Can you smell the pumpkin latte?  I love anything Pumpkin….pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin decorations!!  So when I saw this sentiment in the new Merry Cafe’ stamp set, I knew that would be the focus of my first card .

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

Thankfully the card is not as dark as these colors look !  Yikes…..  With sufficient white space it works I believe.  The DSP is Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper.  It is bordered in black and black also borders the Whisper White to ground both of them.

I stamped and die cut the wrap for the cup, using the Coffee Cups Framelits.  Since that and the tag are raised, I chose to stamp the cup and lid directly on the whisper white.

The leaves are stamped in Crushed Curry , which is stamped off one time, just for a little cup decoration.  Linen Thread attaches the tag, which is from the Corrugated Elements accessories.  I adore those!  And the added heart is from the Regals Enamel Shapes.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have an awesome day.  I have the supplies I used listed at the bottom of the post.  You can click on any photo and be taken directly to my online store.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is Sahara Sand cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and folded in half
  • Basic Black is cut to 5 1/4  X 4
  • DSP is cut to 5 X 3 3/4
  • 2nd Basic Black is cut to 4 1/2 X 3 1/4
  • Whisper White is cut to 4 1/8 X 3 1/8
