Birthday Cheer for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. 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 new I had the right idea for my card when Brian sent the banner for today’s Blog Hop.  The design in the banner is what I used on my card.  I had to laugh.  So, seeing that DSP you can imagine that my card is very bright and colorful.  Here it is.

 

Birthday Cheer Bundle, 150576

 

I love purple.  It was my Mother’s favorite color, so of course I did not like it in my young years.  But as those things go, it is one of my favorite colors now.  I definitely thought of her in making this card.  I used the Gorgeous Grape as the base, and I added the Dot To Dot Embossing Folder in Whisper White to separate the color a bit.  I then went crazy with color and layered two pieces of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

The sentiment is a combination of two different ones.  The main sentiment is from the Stitched All Around stamp set.  The added “It’s All About You”, which I thought was just perfect, is from Birthday Cheer. My original plan was to have that as the inside sentiment.  I thought about it a minute, and decided I liked it as an added bit of humor for the front panel.

The hat and cupcake are stamped in Gorgeous Grape and colored with Stampin’ Blends, using the DSP as a color source.  My post yesterday commented on the use of regular ink for coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.  Today’s pieces are another example of how well that can work!

I die cut the cupcake but had to fussy cut the hat.  They are both raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card a bit more depth.  The Glitter Enamel Dots were the finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Mary Fish at https://stampinpretty.com. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!  My complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Amazing Day

I am back to my Bright colors today.  I love getting my inspiration from the Designer Series Paper.  I hope you do that, or will now give it a look next time you sit down to create.  If you have been following me for any amount of time you know that I lean towards the bright colors.  The DSP from Happiness Blooms is definitely right up my alley.

 

Incredible Like You, 148708

 

The stamp set, Incredible Like You, is not the set that is part of the Happiness Blooms suite.  I think it matches perfectly anyway!  The flower looks very similar.  I used the colors from the DSP to stamp the flower in my center panel.

The beautiful DSP is actually both sides of the same piece of paper.  I love when it works that way.  I feel like I am getting more bang for my buck.

This stamp set also has a matching Kit you can purchase to make some gorgeous cards.  I occasionally love those kits, but almost always really find the stamp sets to be perfect ones.  So please do not overlook a kit if you prefer making your own cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I do really appreciate your visits.  And if you ever have any questions about a project, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Measurements:

  • Base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, folded in  half
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP is 2 X 5 1/4, and 1 X 4
  • center panel is 3 1/8 X 2 5/8
  • white is 3 X 2 1/2

Leaping With Joy for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have used a variety of stamp sets, most are from Sale-A-Bration, and created a very unique card, for me anyway.  I tend to do cards with different folds and bright colors.  Today’s card is definitely a Different Fold!

 

So Hoppy Together, 149725

 

Aren’t these frogs adorable?  I love their positions and features.  I wanted to make something different for today’s Blog Hop and decided to finally try the box card.  I have had it on my desk forever it seems.  You will love to know that it is really very easy to make.

Here is a close up of the frogs.

 

So Hoppy Together, 149725

 

And here is how it looks when you would pull it out of the envelope.  Yes, it fits in a regular A2 envelope.  It measures 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  Woohoo!!

 

 

In addition to the frog stamp set , which is So Hoppy Together, I used another SAB set that is new.  It is More Than Words.  Another new item is the DSP in the photo above.  It is a reverse side of the Painted Season DSP coming in March.  I forgot to mention that the black checked paper is a reverse side of the Botanical Butterfly DSP, one of the SAB items.  Although I did not photograph it well, the new punch coming also in March is the Story Label Punch.  It is used on the left side flap with the Happy Birthday.

A couple of the sentiments came from Piece of Cake and Incredible lIke you.  I was trying to get coordinating sentiments, and may have gone a tad overboard!  Another new item coming in March is framelit dies that match the frogs!  That would have made me happy, as I fussy cut the frogs today!  Stay tuned for these great products beginning March 1.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I will prepare a template, and maybe a video (once I get the nerve) on the box card.  It truly is so much easier than I originally thought.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom of the post.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Spring Has Sprung” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Tea Time

I apologize for being late two days in a row.  But sometime life doesn’t go smoothly.  Nothing is wrong, just things being crazy.  So thank you for checking in and coming back to see what I have for you.

Today’s card we made at my Stamp Club on Sunday.  I believe they liked it.  I know I enjoyed creating it because it is a bit different that what I normally do.  With the sentiment I chose for the front, this card could be used for so many different occasions.  I love having cards like that in my files for a quick one to grab and send.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I think this card is really pretty.  Or at least unexpected.  I paired the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog with the Tea Time Framelits from Sale-A-Bration.  They are one of the $100.00 Free items.   I believe I heard they are carrying over and that is very unusual.  Even if they do not, I believe they are well worth the price (so to speak!LOL!) The gorgeous ribbon is also from the Tea Suite of products.  It is Tea Ribbon Combo, and you get this color and an off white trimmed in gold as a pair.

The embossing folder to add some class to the tea set, is the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder also from the Occasions Catalog.  I love the beautiful detail it brings to the card.  The Tea Pot is die cut from the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.   That is where I got the Coastal Cabana card idea from…..I love getting color inspiration from the DSP!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Please return tomorrow as it is one of the PALS Blog Hops!  Those are always filled with super projects.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom the post.

You’re A Classic

I love the title of this post.  “You’re A Classic” could mean you are fabulous.  Or it could just mean you are old enough to be considered a classic, like a nice car.  I hope I fit into both of those definitions! LOL!

I have used the Geared Up Garage set once previously.  You can see that post HERE.  Today’s version is a bit different.  I love the simple layout used today.  It is one that could be used with any stamp set.  The best part is that it doesn’t use a lot of designer series paper.  Not that I do not have a ton of it to use!!

Here is the card:

 

Geared Up Garage, 148590

 

I love the designer series paper that is part of this suite of products.  It is Classic Garage DSP.  There are keys (that I used above), gas cans, gauges, steering wheels, drag marks, etc.  It is the ultimate car/guy paper.  And it is a 6X6 stack.

The only thing I did a bit differently is that I stamped the car on the upper section of the oval die cut.  That way the banner could cover the bottom and I didn’t cover up too much of the gorgeous DSP.  Also, I love that the DSP has the Basic Gray in it.  I rarely use that card stock and after using it here, I am in love with it again.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I do apologize if you came by on Friday and there was not a new post.  I obviously had my days mixed up!!  It was mid day before I realized it and I was not at home to make and post.  I guess I had one of those “Classic” moments!  LOL!!

Masculine Birthday

My title may be a bit misleading.  This does not have to be a masculine birthday card.  It just is not a “frilly” birthday card.  Plus, I tried to be more generic in the colors I chose.  I used the Hello Cupcake stamp set from Sale-A-Bration because it seems to lend the more simpler, less frilly, air about it.  You can decide for yourself though.

 

Hello Cupcake, 149714

 

Hopefully you can see the possibilities with this set even though I went with a simpler version.  Bright colors would make this a really fun and young card.  I will try that next.  Since I have been using really bright colors, I thought I would go for the more light and generic colors today.

This is a one stamp set card.  Those are great for quick , take on vacation, and beginner stampers who do not have a lot of products.  Truthfully, I love to make one set cards.  I believe it really shows the value of a set when you can make a card, or more, using only that set.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

The only non-simple thing I did on this card, and actually it is a simple thing to do!!!!  I stamped the icing on the layer and then on a scrap of paper.  I cut out the one on the scrap and raised it with dimensionals to give some depth to hang over the base of the cupcake.  The sprinkles are stamped in Mossy Meadow on the Soft SeaFoam, but left uncolored.  To tie the base of Crumb Cake to the greens, I wrapped Linen Thread (One of my all time favorite go tops!) around the stamped image layer.  The bow is tied separately and attached with a glue dot.  ***Another trick I learned long ago, when I discovered how difficult it is to tie a bow on a continuous length of ribbon and have it lay properly!

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Layer is 4 X 5 1/4
  • Layer is 2 3/4 X 4 1/8
  • White Layer is 2 5/8 X 4

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for another fun card.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom of the post.
