Seas the Day for the April InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to start planning our trips to the beach, the lake or the in-town aquarium. Today we’re sharing projects inspired by the ocean and sea – we are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! 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 chose to use the Seas the Day stamp set and coordinating dies for the hop today. I also used the Gentle Waves background stamp, but more on that in just a bit.

Here’s my Seas the Day card:

While the card may look complicated, when it’s broken down it becomes just a matter of steps.

Measurements:

  • The Balmy Blue base of the card measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent card.
  • Next, I trimmed another piece of Balmy Blue to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches for the top.
  • I tried to use as little colored cardstock as possible for the front, so I used scraps for the Calypso Coral and Garden Green pieces.
  • The inside white cardstock panel measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • Finally, I used some white cardstock scraps for all the stamping and cropping of the starfish, crab, octopus, and fish.

Let’s Break the Card Down:

  • First, I created the outside top layer. I started by stamping the Balmy Blue cardstock with Balmy Blue ink using the Gentle Waves background stamp. Since the stamp is a horizontal stamp, I needed to stamp, then mask. Here’s an example:

I repeated the stamp, mask, stamp process on the front of the base of the card as well.

Here’s a picture of this fabulous background stamp:

It’s so pretty! If you want this stamp, you need to get it before the mini-catalog ends on June 30, 2022! The Seas the Day bundle is also in the mini-catalog, so just plan to get the bundle and background stamp. Very definitely worth it!
  • Next, I used the background die from the coordinating Seas Die set to crop the ocean scene from my top layer of Balmy Blue cardstock.
  • Then I cropped the background die again using the Garden Green scraps and the Calypso Coral scrap. I just needed to snip the unwanted pieces off. Next, I lined up the new layers on the blue layers and adhere them down.
  • After adhering the seaweed pieces together, I cropped the longer branched pieces of seaweed.
  • I added dimensionals under the cropped background and adhered it to the base of the card.

Dry-fitting the Layout:

  • Before doing any of the stamping and cropping of the animals, I used the dies to play around with the placement of each.
  • Here’s the final dry-fit layout (but please excuse my much loved grid paper underneath):
  • Now, I just had to stamp and crop each. I used Rich Razzleberry for the octopus, Flirty Flamingo for the crab, Grey Granite for the starfish, and Bumblebee for the fish. I did stamp the bubbles in Balmy Blue directly onto the base of the card.
  • The octopus and one of the fish are popped up on dimensionals. I adhered the other pieces directly to the cardstock using my favorite multipurpose liquid adhesive.
  • It took me until the very end to decide what to do about the sentiment. I decided to stamp the sentiment on part of the cropped out front layer. Then, I cropped it using one of the Scalloped Contour dies. I wanted the rest of the card to be the focal point, so I adhered this directly to the cardstock.

Inside and Envelope Stamping:

  • I tried to mimic the front for the inside of the card. The oceans of happiness sentiment comes from Seas the Day. I got the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set.
  • The front of the envelope has just a bit of stamping on the bottom and left side. While stamping the front, I somehow got Garden Green ink on the back of the envelope. It was an easy fix by stamping seaweed, fish, and bubbles to decorate the back of the envelope. Problem solved.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card and envelope set.

Spring Flowers for the March InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! As we prepare for Spring, flowers are always on our minds. We are sharing flower-themed projects with you today and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Two Cards, One Blog Hop

I’ve already said I enjoy watching and learning from Jan B’s tutorial videos, and the bookbinding shutter card is what I created for the blog hop.  However, since the card is involved, not complicated, just involved, I wanted to include a more mainstream card.

Before I share the bookbinding shutter fold card, I also created a “regular” card using the same materials.  Here’s that card:

Measurements and Such:

Both sentiments come from the Easter Friends stamp set.  I could very easily make this a birthday card by simply changing the inside sentiment.  

  • The Garden Green base measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • Next, the Basic White layer measures 5-3/8 inches by 4-1/8 inches.
  • The top layer of DSP measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. I also trimmed a piece of this DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • I used the Scalloped Contour dies for both the Pale Payapa DSP (designer series paper) pattern and the Basic White layer.
  • The white panel on the inside measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.

Now, for the Bookbinding Shutter Fold Card:

The size of the finished fun fold card is 5-3/4 inches by 5-3/4 inches.  Therefore, I am going to have to make an envelope specifically for this card.  Here in the U.S., it’s more expensive to mail a square card, so the envelope I make won’t be a square shape.

JanB’s video is about an hour long.  One of the things I really like about her videos is that she gives you all the measurements right in the beginning.  Therefore, I write down all the measurements while she’s giving them.  Then, I pause the video and do all my trimming and scoring before proceeding with her videos.   I made another bookbinding shuttercard and a coordinating “regular” card yesterday, which will be for a future Cardz 4 Galz design team entry

HINT:  I learned a huge lesson when creating the first card:  I would strongly suggest laying out your DSP pieces before you decide on the decorations.  The following is my dry run for today’s card:

 

Once I had my pieces laid out, I was able to go back and decide on the embellishments for the inside.   It was much, much easier to make design decisions when I laid all these out first.

Celebrating Birthdays for the February InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Feb 15, 2022 | InKing Royalty Blog Hop | 0 comments

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This is a great time of year to build your stash of handmade birthday cards, so we are sharing birthday-themed projects with you today. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Here’s my Artfully Layered birthday card:

This DSP (designer series paper) has quickly become one of my go-to set of papers. The colors are spectacular! Take a look:

I used two of the patterns for my blog hop birthday card.

The landscape layout of the card was inspired by the Sunday Stamps challenge, SSC276, sketch for this week.

Measurements:

  • The Old Olive base measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches.
  • In order to stay in line with the sketch while adding texture, I added a layer of Old Olive cardstock. Since the Bark 3D embossing folder will leave such a deep imprint, I didn’t trim the cardstock to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches until after I embossed it.
  • Next, I trimmed two pieces of the DSP for the slanted pieces of the card. Each piece measures ————
  • While I had the DSP handy, I trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2inches for the envelope flap.
  • The white cardstock panel on the inside measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I used a scrap piece of white cardstock for the sentiment tag.

Assembly:

  • After embossing the Old Olive layer, I popped it up on dimensionals and adhered it to the base.
  • Next, I placed each layer of DSP on opposite slants and adhered them with multipurpose glue.
  • Using the Biggest Wish stamp set, I stamped “happy” using Mango Melody and then “birthday” using Just Jade. Mango Melody is part of the background design on the DSP.
  • Then I cropped out the sentiment using the second largest die from the Tailor-Made die set.
  • Since there are Evening Evergreen leafy branches in the DSP, I used the Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon for the tag accessory.
  • The sentiment tag is popped up on dimensionals and then I adhered it to the front of the card.
  • Now, all I needed to do was stamp the sentiment on the inside and adhere it to the inside of the card using multipurpose glue.
  • Finally, I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap, punched the seal and ran it through the XYRON create-a-sticker. With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.

Otterly Awesome Sale-a-Bration for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! We are having so much fun with our new Sale-a-Bration products and are excited to share some of that fun with you today. This month’s projects feature papers or stamp sets (or both!) from Stampin’ Up!’s January – February 2022 Sale-a-Bration (SAB) brochure!

 

Here’s my card, which features both a SAB stamp set and a 6 x 6 inch DSP pack:

 

Measurements:

  • I used Balmy Blue for the base, which measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent card.
  • The black mat for the front of the card measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • The Simply Marbleous DSP (designer series paper) measured 4 inches by 5-1/8 inches. Then, I cut it in half, which left the blackcardstock showing in the middle. I also trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap, which I adhered and trimmed right away.
  • I used the stitched rectangle measuring 2-7/8 inches by 3-1/8 inches. However, I stamped and colored the adorable otter before cropping it out.
  • The black mat under the otter/sentiment rectangle measures 3 inches by 3-1/4 inches.
  • The white cardstock panel for the inside measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I decided to use the reverse side of the DSP for a strip along the bottom of the inside. It measures 4 inches by 1/2 inch.
  • Both birthday hats were stamped onto scraps of the same DSP as the front of the card.

What I Did:

  • The Awesome Otters SAB stamp set is just that – awesome! There are three otters in the stamp set and each one is so stinking cute! I’ve already made a card using this DSP and stamp set and you can find that card here
  • I used the Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad to stamp all the images and sentiments. This ink allowed me to use blends to color in the images.
  • Both otters’ bellies have been colored with the light and dark Crumb Cake blends.
  • Then, I used the light and dark Soft Suede to color the rest of the otters.
  • The water, balloon on the inside, and the cute birthday hats were colored using the light and dark Balmy Blue blends.

Creating the Inside:

  • I can’t begin to tell you how stinking pleased I am with the way the inside of the card came together. The balloon comes from the Mischievous Mice stamp set found in the January-June mini catalog. Since both stamp sets are cling stamps, there’s no easy way I could’ve gotten the balloon and the otter’s hand to line up without the Stamparatus.
    • I used both plates for the Stamparatus; the balloon stamp was on one plate and the otter on the second plate.
    • I was able to practice the placement of the stamps on a piece of the Stamparatus sized grid paper.
    • Once I had both stamps lined up correctly, I stamped the otter and then the balloon. Instead of trying to mask off the rest of the balloon stamp, I used the black Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the parts of the balloon I wanted to use.
    • After coloring the otter and the balloon, I used the tuxedo black ink pad to stamp the sentiment.
    • Then, I fussy cut both balloons and adhered one to the otter on the front and the second one on the otter on the inside of the card.
    • Finally, I adhered the DSP strip on the bottom of the cardstock.
  • After I’d finished the inside and outside of the card, I punched a 1 inch circle for the seal. As always, I ran it through the XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.

Party Fun with the December IRBH!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects are all about party fun – festive gatherings like New Year’s, birthdays and other fun times. How fun! 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.

First and foremost – a great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our fearless leader, Brian King!  My party card for this blog hop just happens to be for a very special birthday! 

Here’s my card:

I’ve already posted cards made with the layering diorama dies and you can see one of those posts here. For that post, I created a faux shaker card, but did include multiple pictures of hos I layered the diorama die cuts. The Party Puffin card has three layers: white is adhered directly to the DSP, the Granny Apple Green is popped up on dimensionals, as is the Misty Moonlight layer. The double layer of dimensionals for the layering dies also means I need to use a double layer of dimensionals on the foremost puffin on the right and behind the cake.

Measurements:

  • While it probably would’ve been easier to create a tent fold card, I went with a side fold. Therefore, the Granny Apple Green base measures 11 inches by 4-1/4 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches.
  • The piece of white cardstock for the back layering diorama mat measured 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. I trimmed another piece of white cardstock to the same measurements for the inside of the card.
  • The Granny Apple Green cardstock measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. The Misty Moonlight top layer measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches. Originally, I thought about using an embossing folder to give the Misty Moonlight cardstock some texture. Then, I decided I’d just randomly stamp the trio of candles on it instead. I did stamp off each time I stamped so the candles wouldn’t be too dark.
  • This Pattern Party Host 12 x 12″ DSP (designer series paper) stack is full of fun colors and patterns. Not into so much color? The reverse side of each of the 48 (yes, 48!!) sheets is black and white. All of those patterns are fabulous as well. Anyway, I trimmed the piece for the front of the card to 4-1/8 inches to 5-3/8 inches. I used a piece trimmed to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.

What Else I Did:

  • I used quite a number of dimensionals on this card. Not as many as on the shaker card for which I included the link above, but dimensionals definitely hold this card together.
  • After stamping the puffins and the cake in Momento Tuxedo black, I fussy cut each piece. I’m getting better and a bit faster at fussy cutting. If you are left-handed, you understand why this is a big deal.
  • Since Pale Papaya is a color in the DSP, I decided to use the blends combo for the beak and feet of the puffins. I used the light Smoky Slate blend for the beak as well. I decided to color the candle flames in Pale Papaya as well
  • Then, I used the bullet end of the Granny Apple Green and Misty Moonlight blends for the cake and the party hat.
  • I stamped the sentiments for both the inside and the outside in Misty Moonlight. The outside sentiment is cropped using the rectangle stitched dies.
  • Since I thought some additional color was needed on the inside, I stamped 3 fishes around the sentiment. Even though the fish have a bow, somehow I thought it would be creepy to have the fish for a present for the birthday puffin.

Finishing Up:

  • After I had everything together and adhered, I wanted something else, but knew I needed something subtle. So, I used the fine tip glue pen to color the Misty Moonlight semi-circles and the Granny Apple Green part of the birthday hat. I couldn’t just stop and leave the cake alone and naked, so I all use the glue pen on the colored parts of the cake.

HINT: Make sure you allow the glue to completely dry before you try to move the card. I’ve been impatient with that before and it didn’t work well. Here’s a close-up of the DIY epoxy dots I created (thanks to Brian King’s fabulous idea!).

  • Finally, I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap and punched a 1 inch circle to run through the XYRON create-a-sticker for the envelope seal. With that, I’d finished this very layered card, envelope, and seal coordinated set.

Pretty Packages and Tags for the November InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature pretty packages and beautiful tags to inspire your holiday gift-giving. 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 wound up making a couple of cards and a tag with the Whimsy and Wonder DSP (designer series paper).  The patterns I picked either have gorgeous presents or beautiful holly leaves.  Since I am all about non-traditional Christmas colors, this DSP is perfect for me.  I actually think I am going to have to order another pack at the rate that I am using it.

Here are my projects:

The inspiration for the fun fold card below came from Jackie Beers’ post, which you can see  here..

The inspiration for the following card came from the Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge.  Even though I went a little bit overboard, you can see the sketch in my card. 

Measurements:

Fun Fold Card:

Fun Fold:

  • If you hop over to Jackie’s post for the fun fold. you will see her absolutely wonderful card AND get the measurements. Really, you want to see her card!
  • HINT: The first time I made one of these cards I put all the DSP strips on mats. Don’t do that. Trust me. The card will be too thick and will be very difficult to keep it closed when needed.

Tag:

  • Both the top and bottom tag pieces measure 4-1/4 inches by 1-7/8 inches. Thankfully, I have the tag topper punch, which made creating these tag pieces super easy.
  • I stamped the sentiment using Misty Moonlight on a piece of scrap white cardstock, then cropped it with a Stitched So Sweetly die.
  • I just cut a length of Blushing Bride ribbon to what I thought would be a good size and threaded it through both tags. Then, instead of tying a knot, I wrapped a piece of linen thread around the ribbon to tie it off. The linen thread picks up the color from the Crumb Cake presents.
  • The top and bottom layers of the tag are offset because I wanted to have both beautiful pieces showing. I adhered them in place with a dot of glue and the dimensionals under the sentiment die cut.
  • That’s it. Beautiful, but oh, so easy.

My Mistake:

  • I made a mistake right at the start because I adhered the embossed piece of Blushing Bride cardstock to the base with dimensionals first. I should’ve done that after I had the rest of the front put together. The popped up layer of cardstock made it a tad more concerning because I didn’t want to crush the embossing.

Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #532 card:

  • The Blushing Bride base measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/2 inches.
  • I trimmed another piece of Blushing Bride to 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 so I could run it through the Wintry 3D embossing folder. Since the snowflakes folder is also good for the mini cut and emboss machine, I did have to run it through the machine twice to get the whole piece embossed. Then, I trimmed it down to 5-1/4 by 4 inches.
  • HINT: When using the 3D embossing folders, remember to start with a piece of cardstock that’s bigger than what you need. If you trim it first, then emboss it, the cardstock will be too small because of the depth of the embossing details.
  • The pretty presents DSP pattern measures 3-1/8 inches by 4-1/2 inches. I also trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. The Misty Moonlight mat measures 3-1/4 by 4-5/8 inches.
  • The snowflake DSP measures 1-7/8 by 4-3/8 inches and the mat measures 2inches by 4-1/2 inches
  • Again, I just cut off a length of ribbon and folded it in half to go behind the sentiment panel. I used my favorite Christmas stamp from Perfectly Plaid in Misty Moonlight. Then, I cropped it with the same Stitched So Sweetly die as the tag.
  • Time to put everything together.
  • The challenge sketch called for a tab between the two pieces of DSP. Instead, I chose to use one of the Wonderful Snowflakes from the Whimsy and Wonder Suite Collection. I am extremely thankful that I bought the whole collection since I got 10% off the bundle. The best part about these snowflakes is that they have a mat finish on the reverse side so you can color them with the Stampin’ Blends. Score!

Putting It Together:

  • I put dimensionals under the top, embossed layer of Blushing Bride cardstock.
  • The two DSP panels and the snowflake are adhered with multipurpose glue.
  • After folding the ribbon in half and tying it off with a piece of linen thread, I adhered the piece that would be behind the sentiment with tear-and-tape.
  • The sentiment has dimensionals under it.
  • HINT: Be careful of the placement of the dimensionals because you don’t want them to sit on top of the ribbon. The sentiment panel wouldn’t lay correctly if the dimensionals are on top of the ribbon.
  • Here’s a look at the inside of the card:

  • I used a sentiment from Whimsical Trees and a snowflake stamp from Merry Snowflakes.
  • Finally, I punched a 1 inch circle out of the snowflakes DSP and rang it through the XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • With that, I had completed this coordinated card/envelope/seal card set.
  • I hope you try it. The card looks complicated, but the looks are deceiving. You don’t have to tell anyone how it all came together in much less time than it took me to type out the directions. That will be our secret!
