It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop for May! Our theme this month is “I gotta feeling” and we’re showcasing new products from Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Because we’ve gotta feeling that you’re gonna love the new stuff! I used the new Hand Delivered host/hostess stamp set and the new Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.

Here’s what I made:

This card is all about the color, so the construction is very simple. It’s only 2 layers of paper on a card base.

OSAT Blog Hop – On the Red Carpet

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

Hurray, it’s time for the One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop! This month’s theme is On the Red Carpet. This month we’re sharing glamorous projects (think the red carpet at the Oscars) and/or projects made using new products (as in rolling out the red carpet for the new stuff.) I decided to go a bit literal with the theme and create a project with a glamorous lady on the red carpet. The fancy lady is from the You’ve Got Style stamp set.

I created the texture for the red carpet background and for her fur coat using the suede card stock technique. It’s really simple – just burnish the paper with a Bone Folder on both sides and in all directions until the two paper layers separate. It just just take a minute or so. Each of the resulting two pieces will have a regular smooth side and a fuzzy suede-like side. 

 

Here’s what I made:

Send this card to someone fabulous! Made with the You've Got Style stamp set and Gold Faceted Gems by Stampin' Up! for the OSAT Blog Hop for May 2018. I created a red carpet and fur coat by burnishing cardstock with a Bone Folder until the layers peeled apart. This gives the paper a suede feel. #stampcandy

 

Here you can see the suede-like texture of the Real Red background and the Very Vanilla coat and hat. I just wish I could get the Wink of Stella on her jewelry and champagne to show up in a photo!Send this card to someone fabulous!

  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Very Vanilla Thick CS cut to 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″

Created “suede” card stock pieces:

  • burnished the Real Red CS layer and the Very Vanilla CS piece with a Bone Folder until the layers separated

Stamped with the You’ve Got Style stamp set:

  • lady in black ink onto the Whisper White CS layer

Colored using a Clear Wink of Stella Pen:

It’s time for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop for the April kit, You Are My Anchor. This is such a fun kit! The colors are great; the images are great; really everything about it is awesome.

Here’s what I did:

  • a Calypso Coral note card cut to 3″ x 5-1/4″
  • 1 wave note card cut in half
  • 1 note card cut in half (doesn’t matter which design because I used the solid white side)

Assembled the card, front:

  • fold in the Island Indigo CS card base burnished with a Bone Folder
  • a large round die cut glued onto the side of the 3″ x 5-1/4″ Calypso Coral note card piece

  • NOTE: I covered the score line in the note card piece with the rope twine
  • Calypso Coral note card piece and large round die cut glued to the front of the Island Indigo CS card base
  • rope twine adhered to the back of a lifesaver die cut using Glue Dots, then the lifesaver adhered to the large round die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals

Assembled the card, inside:

  • wave note card half with boats glued onto the back side of a matchbox cover

  • lighthouse die cut glued to the inside top of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • the two Island Indigo striped note cards glued together at the ends – at both intersections, one flap will be on the outside of the adjacent side, and the other flap will be on the inside of its adjacent side
  • using Paper Snips, cut along the score lines up the four corners only up to the horizontal score line
  • folded all four flaps toward the inside and glued them to the inside of the 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece, which will form the bottom of the box
  • cut along one score line at each corner of the 3″ x 3″ Island Indigo anchor note card piece
  • glued the resulting flaps to the inside of the adjacent sides
  • filled the box with goodies and put on the lid
  • 2 small die cut banners glued to the back of the small round die cut tag as shown
  • tied a piece of the rope twine around the box, through the tag, and tied in a box

  • top of treat bag folded over
  • note card, Island Indigo colored ribbon, and some rope twine clipped to the top of the treat bag using a Gold Library Clip

ICS Blog Hop – Guy Greetings Happy Birthday Card

It’s time for the ICS Blog Hop for May. This month’s theme is It’s a Guy Thing, and we’re making masculine projects. Why do we have so much trouble with guy cards? I think it’s because we aren’t using the right products. Because when you have the right stuff, it’s easy. Like the Guy Greetings stamp set and True Gentleman Designer series Paper. With these two products and some card stock, I created this very simple and oh so masculine birthday card for a classic guy.

After reading my post, I hope you’ll hop to the next stop, Joni Metras of Joni in the Spotlight Stamping. Just scroll down and click on the arrow.

Let the Good Times Roll with IRBH

InKing Royalty Blog Hop, April 2018 #stampcandy

It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Let the Good Times Roll. We’re sharing projects that are party themed or that have wheels, or both! I’ve use 2 stamp sets (Let the Good Times Roll and Glamper Greetings) and 2 Designer Series Papers (Wood Textures and Coffee Break) to make today’s card. Glamper Greetings and Coffee Break DSP are on the retiring list, so you’d better grab them while you still can.

When you hear “Let the Good Times Roll” you might think of The Cars’ song from the 1980s, but I opted for something a little older. Watch the video below to hear the Shirley & Lee song from the 1950s:

 

Here’s what I made:

This camper reminds me of the 1950s. I can imagine it parked somewhere with this song playing on the radio. That would be an AM radio, no stereo!

Glamper Greetings and Let the Good Times Roll stamp

Glamper Greetings and Let the Good Times Roll stamp

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) layer cut to 4-7/8″  3-3/8″
  • Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″

Stamped with the Glamper Greetings stamp set:

  • camper in Memento black ink onto scraps of 3 different pieces of Wood Textures DSP
  • camper in Memento black ink onto a scrap of Coffee Break DSP (blue)

Stamped with the Let the Good Times Roll stamps set:

  • sentiment in Memento black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • NOTE: I curved the photopolymer stamp into an arc

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one whole camper from the lightest stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • door  from a darker stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • trim  from an even darker stamped piece of Wood Textures DSP
  • “curtains” from the stamped piece of Coffee Break DSP
  • sentiment

Cut using a 1/8″ Circle Punch:

  • window in door – the window is a little larger than 1/8″, so I punched around the circle 3 or 4 times

Colored using markers:

  • tire and hitch (is that what it’s called?) using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • spot behind the door window using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker
  • hub cap using a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker

Assembled the card:

  • Early Espresso CS layer glued onto the front of a Whisper White Note Card
  • Coffee Break DSP layer glued onto the Early Espresso CS layer
  • door, trim pieces, and curtains glued onto the whole camper
  • sentiment and camper adhered to the Coffee Break DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
