Christmas In July InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! It’s Christmas in July, and today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by … you guessed it … Christmas! What fun! Although Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog will be released to demonstrators this week (we can’t wait to share that with you), our Annual Catalog is filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make Christmas special. 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.

My card for this Christmas In July Blog Hop is made with a set from the Annual Catalog.  Actually all of the components are from the Annual catalog.  And it is traditional Christmas colors as well.

 

Oh, What Fun : 140386

 

Color Combination:

My color inspiration came from the designer series paper, as usual!  When I saw this sheet in the Be Merry Designer Series Paper pack I just knew it would make a beautiful card.  And I did not want to cover it up.  The sentiment and other design items are all from the set Oh, What Fun.  Such a cheery name for a really versatile stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment , which has a berry sprig attached to it, with Memento Tuxedo Black.  To keep from having a black berry sprig, I placed reusable tape over the sprig before I inked the stamp.  (I almost forgot to remove the tape before I stamped…LOL…so don’t tell anyone!) There is a stamp in the set of a berry sprig as well.  I stamped it in old olive on both sides of the sentiment and then colored the berries with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  The above and below line is also included in the stamp set.

I made the layers with the Lots of Labels Framelits.  To finish off the card I added a loop of the Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon.  The layers of the sentiment are raised with SU’s wonderful dimensionals.  To me this is a traditional Christmas card.

I hope you liked my card from products in the annual catalog.  I cannot wait to share more Fall and Christmas cards with you when the Holiday Catalog arrives.  But in the mean time, please give the sets in the annual catalog a second glance.

Fabulous

This is my second card using the super cute stamp set “You’ve Got Style”.  This lady is just adorable and a super “smile” card maker.

 

You’ve Got Style, 143898

 

I did not use any designer series paper today.  That alone is unusual.  I also did not start with a color combination or even a plan.  I know, crazy!  I stamped the lady and her kitty and then started coloring.  I used markers this time instead of watercolor pencils.  I wanted a bolder look.

After I got everything colored, I then decided on a color scheme and knew that it had to be bright.  Therefore Real Red and Daffodil Delight seemed to fit perfectly.  Since I did not use any designer paper, I felt like it still needed some background design.  I looked around and came up with this stamp from Oh So Eclectic for a random background pattern.  I think it worked perfectly.  Also, I could not leave off some “Bling”.  So the necklace and the kitty each received a small rhinestone for some sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate hearing from you and reading your thoughts on the card.

Thank You For Caring

Today’s card used a technique that I rarely do, but always love the results.  And maybe it isn’t really a technique per se.  It is stamping on your Designer Series Paper instead of just using it as a layer.  The results are usually very nice.  Here is what I did for today’s card.

 

Definitely Dahlia, 139911

 

This card definitely falls under Quick and Easy layout. There is really not very much to the card and the layers are simple.

The color combination came from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper. Wow! That’s a big name. But the paper lives up to that name.

Color Combination:

Other than the beautiful DSP, I simply stamped the Definitely Dahlia stamp with Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment with Tranquil Tide ink.  The sentiment is from the Label Me Pretty stamp set. The sentiment contains a tiny heart, but I wanted to add Fresh Fig to it , so I added an Enamel Shape Heart over the tiny heart.  And that is the extent of the card.  I hope you enjoyed it today.

You Are Amazing

I have another quick and easy card for you today.  The sets I have used are older, but wonderful, stamps that I have not utilized in a while.  So I dusted them off and came up with this card

 

All Things Thanks, 143097

 

This is such a sweet card and takes only a couple of minutes and minimum product to complete.  The color choice came from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has such unique patterns and is a group of the new InColors for 2017-2019.

The base and Ink are Dapper Denim with the variegated piece of DSP.  I bordered the DSP with a layer of Whisper White card stock and then bordered the Whisper White stamped piece with Dapper Denim card stock.  The flowers are from Flower Shop stamp set and have a matching punch.  I just stamped the center one with full strength Dapper Denim ink and then the other two are stamped after stamping off once.  If you haven’t tried that technique it is a great way to give some depth to your stamped collage type areas.

The sentiment is from All Things Thanks set.  Most of the sentiments in the set are a variation of Thank You, except for this one.  I use it frequently!  And to finish off the card, I added Clear Faceted Gems to the center of the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  The supplies are listed again at the bottom and clicking on a photo will take you directly to my Online Store.

Christmas In July Card

I am so excited about this Christmas set Sneak Peak!  The card I made today is using the Carols Of Christmas set.  It will be in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  As a Demonstrator I was allowed to preorder it.  And it is also part of the Christmas in July Special (see the note at the bottom of the post) for anyone signing up this month to be a demonstrator.  No more suspense, here is a few pieces of that stamp set.

 

Carols of Christmas, 144804

 

Isn’t this such a sweet card?  And so quick and easy to do.  The most time in making the card was adding the layers.  My color inspiration came from the DSP, as usual.  This is the Be Merry Designer Series Paper that is in the current catalog.  It is a must have for Christmas cards this year.  And to deflect from all the Cherry Cobbler, I added Garden Green to contrast.

COLOR COMBINATION:

I know I am super excited to see the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  And I hope you are as well after seeing just a few of the stamps fro this set.  If you do not currently have a demonstrator, please contact me and I will make sure you receive one of the catalogs.

Coffee With Friends

I don’t even drink coffee and I am in love with this new Coffee Cafe Suite!  Everything in the suite is just wonderful.  And it’s the little things!  The Designer Series Paper is beautiful, the matching framelits are a must have.  I have used the little tag,( I actually think it may be a tea bag!), several times to attach a tag to a little card or gift.  And I know we have had coffee sets from Stampin’ Up! before, but this one is just at at the top of the scale.  So enough of that, here is the card I made.

 

Coffee Cafe Bundle, 145331

 

My color inspiration for this card came from this DSP.  As I mentioned in my comments above, everything in this suite of items is wonderful, and the DSP is no exception.  This paper I used is probably my favorite of the DSP pack. And gave me the color combination.

I did this card with my Stamp Club on Sunday and one of the ladies commented that she would have never put these two colors together.  I responded with “I would not have either” it was the DSP’s fault!!

To give some extra color to the open portion of Soft Sky card stock, I used the coffee mark from Timeless Texture stamp set and stamped in Soft Sky Ink. The coffee cup is stamped in Soft Sky with the lid stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  They were cut out with the matching dies in the Framelits set.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  The one thing I would change is the little heart stopper in the lid.  I cut it out in Soft Sky card stock and you really cannot see it.  As a redo I would use the Early Espresso or Crumb Cake for that.

The products I used to day are listed at the bottom of this post.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.
