Match This Sketch 211

Sometimes a card comes out exactly the way I saw it in my head.  This one is not one of those cards.  I knew I wanted to use the Picture Perfect Party DSP stack.  This DSP is fabulous, it’s actual pictures.  LOVE it!  I also knew I was going to use the coordinating Picture Perfect Birthday photopolymer stamp set.  The rest of the card just kind of evolved, and while I kept the sketch in mind, I did stray, but the spirit of the sketch is still there.

Here’s the card:

Here’s the sketch for a comparison:

I used the 2 inch scalloped circle punch for the large circle, the Bermuda Bay ribbon is for the strip going across the card, the sentiment is for the small circle shape, and the 2 candles for the 2 vertical strips.  It’s all in the interpretation, right?  The shapes are all represented, so it kind of matches.

Wrap it up Blog Hop for InKing Royalty

 

December Blog HopWelcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. 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.

All wrapped up is not how I feel about all the holidays right now, I don’t even have a tree up yet, but it will be later this evening.  My cards are all made, written, addressed, and will be mailed tomorrow.  I also have the gift boxes for my nieces and nephews (age range from 33 to 14), who would rather money than anything else, so they are my Wrap it up! for this blog.

Here are my boxes:

I used the Stampin’Up pizza boxes and decorated them with the Merry Little Christmas DSP, which I love for it’s non-traditional colors of Whisper White, Old Olive, and Basic Black.   The pizza boxes will be filled with a variety of baked goods (because I am the dessert baking aunt), and I added a little pocket for the cash portion of the gift.   These may look more involved and complicated then they were to put together.  It’s all about the layers:  3 layers of paper for the top of the box, and 3 layers for the tags.  They also didn’t take as much paper as it appears because the white and green shapes were punched out of the layers.  Ugly on the underside, perfect paper on the top.

In addition to the Merry Little Christmas DSP and the pizza boxes, I also used the Merry Little Labels clear mount stamp set, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock, the Everyday Label Punch, 2 inch Circle Punch,  the retired scallop circle punch and the Layered Circle Framelits for the white and green parts of the labels.

Happy Holidays!

FALL FAVS

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by some of our favorite Fall-themed products.  What fun!  Stampin’ Up!’s catalogs (both the Annual Catalog and soon-to-be-released Holiday Catalog) are filled with so many fun products for the Autumn holidays – and 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.

Here’s my card:

August blog hop

I initially made this card for last week’s Global Design Project 100th card challenge but decided to save it for this blog hop.  I CAS(E)d my fearless upline, Brian King, using some fabulous new products available in the soon-to-be-released holiday catalog.  I chose this colorful DSP for the background of the card  because the colors just match what I remember from FALL  when I was growing up on Long Island (I live in Florida now and completely miss experiencing seasons actually change).  The Painted Autumn DSP has some fabulous paper designs and colors, and I highly recommend adding it to your holiday catalog wishlist!  The base is Lemon Lime Twist, with another layer of Early Espresso under the DSP, which allows the DSP to pop right off the card!

The Leaf Punch coordinates beautifully (as all SU punches do!) with the Painted Harvest stamp set.  The leaf stamp is a two-step set, and I stamped the base in Cajun Craze and the details in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla base, then punched it out.  I used mini-dimensionals to pop the leaf, but allow it to lay under the label.  CUTE!

I also used the new Every Day Label Punch for the Lemon Lime Twist top piece and 2 Early Espresso pieces used to create the mat.  The layered label is popped up with dimensionals.  When I was doing a “dry run” of the card, I realized that I needed something under the labels, so I grabbed my Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, stamped my greeting from the Painted Harvest stamp set, and then attached everything together.  I’m happy with the result.  The DSP really is the star of the card, and keeping the rest of it simple, but it’s definitely not plain.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Jennifer Spiller @ Westside Paper Creations. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Have a Peachy day!
