Grateful for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GRATEFUL. Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we are grateful you’ve stopped by. We are excited to share our Thanksgiving-themed or grateful-centered projects with you! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The card I made is definitely a “grateful” card, but with a more monotone look to it.  My colors came from probably my most favorite designer series paper of all time, The Come To Gather DSP.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gathering Leaves, Come to gather, Jackie Beers

 

I have probably used every single piece of this DSP.  Today I paired two that are both of the same tone.  Maybe I misspoke on them being monochromatic.  Whatever they are, I love them!!

I die cut leaves using the Gathering Leaves Dies from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock.  The die both embosses and cuts the leaves.  I then added Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves for some sparkle.  I decided to add a touch more and went with the Leaf Punch and punched two leaves using the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

The sentiment is from A Big Thank You stamp set and is stamped using Pretty Peacock Ink.  It was then cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The background sentiment  layer is cut with these dies as well.  The sentiment layer was shortened using the technique of matching up the “stitched lines”.  I completed the card with a Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow.

For me It was very difficult to leave all of that open space.  But I sat on my hands and wouldn’t allow myself to add more!  LOL!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp With Brian. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Gather Thanks

I have shared several cards using the Gather Together Bundle.  I think it is a perfect Fall, and Thanksgiving set.  So I have it again today for a color challenge.

 

 

My card was too dark, so I tried lightening it so you could see the sparkle and the detail of the background.  From here it looks out of sorts.  I apologize!!  These Iphone updates are killing my picture production.

I paired Blackberry Bliss with Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake for the color challenge.  I was immediately impressed with how well the Blackberry Bliss blended with the lighter colors instead of overpowering.  To reward it for being so nice, I made it the focal point with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

The leaves are cut using the dies from the Gather Together Bundle.  They are amazing!!  They emboss and cut at the same time.  I love a tool that multi-tasks for me.  To give a bit of shimmer, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to each of the leaves.

The sentiment is from the stamp set and it is cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.   That piece is finished off with just a little bow tied from the Nature’s Twine bundle of twine in Blackberry Bliss as well.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow for one final project for the week.  I am still trying to get the photo adjustments working!

Thankful for Pals September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

When I saw the theme for this month’s blog hop, I knew immediately the sentiment I would be showcasing.  As I have gotten older I realize how fortunate I am in so many ways.  One of those  things I include is the stamping community of course.  In that regard this sentiment speaks to me.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Home, Gather Together, bouquet Bunch, Stitched Rectangle, Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron,Jackie Beers

 

My Thankful sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set.  It carried over to the new annual catalog and I was so happy!  The new Gather Together stamp set in the Holiday Catalog pairs perfectly with it  , as does the Come Gather Designer Series Paper.

As I generally do, I chose my colors from the designer series paper.  Pretty Peacock is quickly becoming one of my favorites and I love how well is pairs with Mint Macaron.  Looking at them separately you would not think so.  I also added Sahara Sand for the pitcher and the flecks in the bouquet.

The greenery is from the Bouquet Bunch Dies.  The pearls around the edges of the Stitched Rectangles are our basic Pearl colored with the Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  I hope you will give this a try.  Surprisingly they dry almost immediately.

The bit of shimmer ribbon is the Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon.  I added a Linen Thread bow to tie in to the Sahara Sand pitcher.

Thank you for looking at my project.  I really appreciate you stopping by and I would love to see what you think.

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, October 9, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share “My Favorite Season” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
