InKing Royalty January Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Valentine’s Day, so prepare yourself for lots of hearts and beautiful showcases of love. 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 choice for a Valentine’s Day card is a bit different.  I am not a big fan of Red.  As I was looking for options, I came across the Parisian Suite of products.  I new I had found my substitution.  It is a tad unusual, but I hope you will like it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever Blossoms, Parisian Dies, Parisian Blossoms, Jackie Beers

 

I definitely went in a different direction from Red!  I chose Petal Pink, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam.  I hope you will agree with me that the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper does have a hint of romance in it.  Of course, the “Amour ” pretty much defines the intention.

The flowers and die cuts are from the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  This is a bundle for any occasion.  The sentiment is from the Parisian Dies. It is the finishing touch.

I am hooked on the soft look to the flowers.  I made a similar “soft” card last week.  You can see it HERE.  My go to for beginning the softness of the flowers is to stamp them in Smoky Slate instead of Black.  I then colored only the highlighted areas and left the rest plain white.

I stamped and cut the branch with flowers as well as two extra blossoms.  The “Amour” is die cut from Smoky Slate.  Everything is placed with Multi purpose Glue except for the blossoms. One is added on top of another blossom for definition.  The second is anchoring the sentiment.

I also stamped the large image on the inside of the card and added a sweet sentiment there.

Poppy Love

I am sharing the Painted Poppy Bundle today.  I saw it at Stampin’ Up! OnStage in Atlanta last month, and I have seen other demonstrators’ cards.  Playing with it myself was still amazing!  The stamps and dies, as always, are awesome.

 

 

Poppies are very popular this year.  I have been seeing them everywhere.  I was looking at the little pocket calendars at Dollar Tree the other day and there were a couple with different poppy designs.

The border across the bottom is only half that size.  I stamped it twice.  For the large poppies, I die cut the solid flowers usig the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper.  The coordinating color is Poppy Parade (wonder if that was planned a while back/) so of course my outlines are in that color.

The leaf is cut from Mossy Meadow, another coordinating color for the DSP.  I secured it under the large flower and left the top part free to move around.  The sentiment is from another new stamp set, Positive Thoughts.  All of the sentiments are wonderful.  I used Old Olive card stock as the dividing layer as well as the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend for the border flower stems.  I liked the lighter color to pair with the Poppy Parade.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have a candy treat to share tomorrow.

Sending Love

 

I am sharing a mix of products today for a fond farewell to one of the cutest stamp sets.  It is the Birds of a Feather stamp set.  I think these birds are adorable and have used them for several occasions cards as well as some RAK cards during thanksgiving.

 

Stampin' Up!, Birds of a Feather, Stitched So Sweet, Heart punch, From My Heart, Jackie Beers

 

I paired this adorable rooster with a few new products for a sweet little valentine card.  The Designer Series Paper is the new From My Heart DSP.  The punched out heart is from the same DSP pack and is punched using the ruffled Heart from the Hearth Punch Pack.  The Ruffled Heart fits the heart in the paper perfectly, and the plain heart matches a plain heart as well.  I then used a stamp from the Birds of A Feather stamp set to place in the center of the heart.

The rooster is cut out using another new product.  It is the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I LOVE these unusual shapes.  The dies also have several rectangular shapes as well.  I grounded the chicken and heart with the Real Red Ruched Ribbon.  I also added a Real Red Glitter dot from the Toile Tidings Enamel Dots for the “O” in the Love.

I have paired products that are retiring from the Holiday Catalog with products that are debuting in the Mini Catalog 2020 soon.  I love sharing how well all of the SU products pair together.

The retiring products are the Birds of A Feather Stamp set, the Real Red Ruched Ribbon, and the Toil Tiding Enamel Dots.  So if you like these items please click on them in the supply list and get them ordered.  My new supply list allows you to click on an item and it will add it to your cart automatically.  How cool is that???

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Country Love

I am going to attempt to share only Fall and Thanksgiving cards this week.  Christmas is almost upon us and I don’t want to skip over Thanksgiving.  Although, I believe most of us have done that already.

 

 

I am thrilled with how this card came together.  My “Go To” Fall designer series paper has been the Come To Gather DSP.  I love every single piece in the package.  And both sides of each piece!  This is a print that I do not believe I have used previously.

The stamp set is the Country Home from the Annual Catalog.  I was thrilled that it carried over and it pairs so well with the Gathering Leaves in the Holiday catalog.  Everything except the “LOVE” is from the Country Home stamp set.  I stamped and then used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to color the arrangement.

The beautiful LOVE is from the So Many Stars stamp set.  There is a LOVE in the Country Home set, but this one had previously caught my eye.  I really adore the font of this one.

Thank you for dropping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Christmas Rose

The Christmas Rose products will be available for customer orders beginning on November 1st.  As will the new Paper Trimmer.  I thought I would share a project with the Christmas Rose stamp set.  This is so pretty and would work for other than Christmas.  The stamp set has two cases.  There is the single stamp, which is what I used today, in Red Rubber.  The second case holds several stamps and they are in photopolymer.  They can be used to add color to the large stamp I have used.  I chose to color mine with Stampin’ Blends instead.

 

 

I stamped the large image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it using a variety of the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the roses with Poppy Parade and used that card stock as the base and layer of the card.  The Designer Series Paper you see is from the Christmastime Is Here DSP.  I wanted a sort of subtle background for the rose.  This paper reminds me of old fashioned wallpaper.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • White is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • DSP is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Poppy Parade is 4 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • White is 4 5/8 X 3 5/8

Love Roses

I hope you are looking at the Christmas  Rose Suite of products that Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced.   Oh My!!  It is all beautifu!  I splurged and got it all, which I usually do not do on the limited releases.  I will say, I was very pleased when it all arrived.  I cannot say enough about the colors.  The gold glitter dots and gold ribbon are the icing on the cake for me.  I even ordered the bracelet as well.  It is gorgeous.  It has a little Stampin’ Up! tag along with the rose tag.  It is adorable.

Today’s card is sharing a bit of the Christmas Rose paired with some other SU products.  As I have said before, that is one of the reasons I love SU.  The ability to mix and match is wonderful.

 

Stampin' Up!, Christmas Time is Here, Inspiring Iris, Frosted Bouquet, Timeless Label, Magnolia Lane Ribbons Combo, Roses Dies, Jackie Beers

 

The Christmas Time Is Here Designer Series Paper is gorgeous!  It has gold touches throughout.  I chose the Poppy Parade to pull from it, as well as the Mossy Meadow.  The twine is the Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack.

The die cut behind the sentiment is from the Roses Dies, part of this suite of products.  It is so pretty.  The sentiment is from the Inspiring Iris stamp set.  I loved this sentiment from the first time I read it in the catalog.  It is so sweet and I am blessed to have a couple of people in my life this sentiment is perfect for.  I gave this card to one of those ladies.  The sentiment is punched with the Timeless Label Punch and then layered on the tags from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  The tag is a layer of Gold Foil and Poppy Parade.  The sentiment is stamped in the Gold Metallic Ink.

I have a link to the Christmas Rose Suite of products under the UPDATES at the end of this post.  Please take a look at the array of products.  You can order the entire suite, the stamp and dies, or any mix of the items.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow for another InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  You will love the great Halloween type projects.
