InKing Royalty October Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Thanksgiving, so prepare yourself for Autumn landscapes, warm colors and sweet reminders of all the reasons we have to be grateful this time of year. 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.

This month’s theme is right up my alley.  Every year I really enjoy making Fall Cards and those that say we are Grateful.  I also tried a new card layout.

 

Stampin' Up!, Arrange A Wreath, Banner Year, Gilded Autumn, Jackie Beers

The Focal point of the card is the Wreath!  I love the Arrange a Wreath Bundle.  I feel it is really showcased here.  The background of the wreath is stamped using Mint Macaron on Very Vanilla card stock.  I sort of fussy cut around the outside of the wreath, but not overly detailed.  I then did the same for the inside.  The Cinnamon Cider wreath is not stamped on. It is only die cut using the wreath die.  The embossing of the leaves is part of the die!  I love that.

The banner across the wreath made me very happy!  I played with different versions for getting the sentiment.  I used the Banner Year Bundle for the sentiment.  It does not really show in the picture, but I used my bone folder to curve the banner just a little.  So it looks wavy across the front of the wreath.

The finishing touch to the wreath is the bow.  It is the Metallic Ribbon from the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo.  And it pairs beautifully with the gorgeous DSP.  This is one of my all time favorite DSP.  It is the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.

And here is the inside of the card .  This also shows the different fold I mentioned at the beginning.  I have made a couple of regular size cards with this fold. (I got the fold from fellow Demonstrator Paula Butler in a beautiful card for a card swap)  I just stretched it out quite a bit for this Slim card.

 

You can see that only the center raises up.  To finish the inside I stamped the Mint Macaron Wreath again and then added the sentiment.  The sentiment is also from the Banner Year set.

Measurements:  This card fits into a regular A10 Envelope

  • Thick Very Vanilla card stock base is 4 X 8 3/4
  • Very Vanilla center layer is 4 X 8, scored at 4 and folded
  • Center DSP is 3 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • Cinnamon Cider side layers are 3 7/8 X 2 1/8 (need 2)
  • DSP side layers are 3 3/4 X 2 (need 2)

 

I could not get the pictures to look as it should.  I am still playing with new photography and the Slim Line Cards are an added challenge in this!  So I apologize for my larger than necessary watermark.

Country Slim Card

As I said yesterday, I am sharing a Slim Line Card today.  I was late getting on the wagon for these cards, but have made quite a few now.  This one is a favorite, as I love the DSP in it.  Sadly, this is a DSP that is not included in the sale 🙁   But the paper is wonderful and really shines on the card.

 

Stampin' UP!, Country Home, Gilded Autumn, Jackie Beers

 

I believe this paper is gorgeous!!  It is the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.  The gold in the pumpkins really shines.  I did not want to cover up that paper, so went with as small of a stamped layer as possible.  This is probably a first for me in that I did not add a layer beneath the focal layer!  A testament to the beauty of the DSP!

The stamped image is from the Country Home stamp set.  I do love this set.  The Milk Can and the Pitcher that the different flowers fit on top of are both favorites.  They remind me of my younger growing up time.  I actually have a milk can that was my Mom’s.

That sweet sentiment is also from the stamp set.  I stamped it in the Mossy Meadow that is predominant in the flower arrangement.  To finish it off, I added a single Gold Glitter Enamel Dot beneath the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting today.  I very much appreciate your support.  Monday I will have another new project and hope will you stop by.

Season Of Thanks

I have gotten into the Slim Line cards somewhat.  So I have another one to share with you today.  For this card I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  I believe this large flower, or any large flower, would be great on the slim line.

 

 

I really love how this card turned out!  I went a bit bolder with the coloring on the flowers here and I have to say that the picture does not do it justice.  I have to work on my photography!.

The sunflowers are stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  I then colored the center, which is dark from the Early Espresso, all over with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  I went over the darker areas with the Dark and then all over with the Light.  The petals are colored with the Light Cajun Craze for the darker parts, and then Light Mango Melody all over.  I was surprised at how well they all worked.  It gives a lot more definition using the darker colors.  I wanted to try it and it was great.  So do not let your doubts stop you. It’s only paper!

The sentiment is from the Gather Together stamp set.  I love the saying.  I debated on layering the sentiment because of all the white space in the center.  But I think the smaller sentiment in there sort of pops.

Thank you very much for stopping by today!  I have the measurements listed right below here and the supplies I used are at the bottom of the post.  Remember to day is the last day to get the added bonuses of the current Starter Kit Promotion!!

 

Measurements:

  • base card is Very Vanilla cut to 7 1/2 X 8 3/4, and scored on the 7 1/2 side at 3 3/4.
  • Mossy Meadow layer is 3 1/2 X 8 1/2
  • Very Vanilla top layer is 3 1/4 X 8 1/4

Grateful

Before I get started telling you about today’s project, I want to share a few things that begin today in my Stampin’ Up! World!

First, the Clearance Rack is refreshing today!!!!  If you click on my Shop button in the menu, it will take you to the store.

Second, Stampin’ Up! has an awesome new Starter Kit promotion beginning today.  I have all of the details listed towards the botom of the page.  But I will tell you a bit of it  here.  The Starter Kit is for Stampin’ Up! Enthusiasts who love our products.  That is the first step.  if you decide later on that you want to make a business of it, WooHOO!  But there is NO PUSH  to do more than just be a lover of SU!  This special is the regular $99.00 for $125.00 worth of products of your choice.…..PLUS you get the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set as well as the So Much Love stamp set.….PLUS enough pre-cut card stock to make 16 cards.  That is a great deal to me.  And I would love to answer any of your questions, as well as have you join my team.

Last but not least:  the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine is available to customers beginning today!  I have it and it is AMAZING!  I love everything about it.  (And…it can be added to the Starter Kit!!!).  Also, the magnetic platform becomes available for order today as well.  This new magnetic plate is a solid sheet of magnet, and is self healing!  That is a game changer in both regards.   I cannot wait to get my hands on that!

Okay, now about today’s project.  The title says it all.  I am so Grateful for everything, and card making and the friends I have made are high on the list.   This card is a quick and easy one that to me has the perfect sentiment.

I am following the sketch from Case This Sketch #387.  I love sketch challenges as the base for my cards.  Here is the sketch.

The sentiment layer is from the Celebration Tidings stamp set.  It is a photopolymer set so it is very easy to line the pieces up.  That layer is three separate stamps.  The pieces are colored using Stampin’ Blends.

The background stamps are from the Gather Together stamp set.  It was one of the Returning Favorites sets from last year’s holiday catalog.  I stamped the pair of pumpkins a couple of times and colored with Stampin’ Blends also.  The splatter is out of the same set.

I used Just Jade Stampin’ Blends for most of the leaves.  So it was the perfect addition between the two layers of white for the base of the card.

I have listed all of the products at the bottom of the page.  Just below here is the extra information regarding the Starer Kit promotion.

 

 

Additional Products: In addition to the regular starter kit (for $99.00, new recruits choose $125 -worth of products) new recruit will also receive enough cardstock pieces to make 16 cards, a pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the So Much Love stamp set, and the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I hope you are having a good day and a relaxing one.  Although I know holidays are not always relaxing.  In my work life, I had to work more holidays than I was off so I really enjoy them now.

For today’s project I went a little wild with my turkey!  I hope you are awake because this will wake you up for sure.

 

 

Did this bright card wake you up or make you scream?  LOL!!  I colored the turkey before I had decided on anything else for the card.  I wanted him to be a bright and cheerful guy, so went with Poppy Parade and Pretty Peacock besides the turkey brown.

I could not find DSP that seemed to fit the turkey until I came across this feather piece from , you guessed it, Come To Gather DSP.  I know you think that is the only DSP I own!  But when I saw the feathers, I knew this was the perfect piece, plus it was in Pretty Peacock.

The Poppy Parade layers , and all of the layers, were originally going to be normal layout.  At the last minute I decided to go wacky with that as well.  Sometimes life gets wacky , but I am always still Thankful.  That is sort of what this card is about.

The sentiment layer is from the stamp set, but cut with some beautiful dies.  The Ornate Frames Dies are from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  WOOPEE!!! the dies are going to carry over!!  I love when something that is so different and flexible carries over.  So you will continue to see these beautiful sentiment backgrounds.

Before I go, please remember that tomorrow is the last day to order the Christmastime Bundle.  All of the products in the bundle are shown below and can be reviewed just by clicking on the picture.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return for another project tomorrow.

 

REMINDER:  The time is running out for the Christmastime Is Here suite of products, which includes the Christmas Rose Bundle.  They will be gone after November 30th.

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!
