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!

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

Five For All Pizza Box for an Over the Hill Birthday Party

It’s a party! My presentation at the Spring Stamp-Along last week was all about party favors, food, and decor for five different types of party. One type was a birthday party for an adult. I haven’t seen the Over the Hill birthday theme used in a long time, so I decided to go with that. I used black and silver for all the projects. The Five For All stamp set has funny birthday sentiments perfect for this theme.

Today I’m sharing a box that could hold a small gift or a party favor. Don’t you just love the Mini Pizza Boxes? And they’re carrying over to the new catalog! Unfortunately, the Five For All stamp set is not. It’s one of the products that will be retiring, so it will be available through May 31, or while supplies last. See all the retiring products HERE.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Silver Foil Sheet cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″

Stamped with the Five For All stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto the Basic Black CS square, then heat embossed in silver

Painted using Archival Basic Black ink refill:

  • the outside of the box – let it dry completely before adhering anything to it
  • NOTE: I used an old paintbrush. The ink did stain it, but did not hurt it at all.
  • NOTE: I used an alcohol pad to remove any ink from the inside of the box.

Assembled the project:

  • folded the box together
  • adhered the sentiment onto the Silver Foil Sheet piece using Tear & Tape
  • adhered the Silver Foil Sheet to the top of the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals, being sure to leave a “tunnel” for the ribbon
  • ran ribbon under the Silver Foil Sheet, wrapped it around the box, and tied it on the side
  • applied Metallic Enamel Shapes (silver dots) to the top of the box around the Silver Foil Sheet, to resemble a marquis

Pink & Blue Baby Shower Party Favor Cigars

Today’s project is made with several retiring products: World’s Best Trophy stamp set, Archival Basic Black ink pad, and card stock in Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and Soft Sky. Chocolate Chip is the perfect reddish brown color for a cigar. I wrapped it around large rolls of Sweetarts candies. The cigar bands are strips of card stock with 1″ punched circles. I didn’t have a stamp set that included “boy,” although there are a few that have the word “girl.” So I used the “son” and “daughter” from the World’s Best Trophy stamp set. These make great party favors for a baby shower. You can change the band color and sentiment for any occasion.

You can see everything that is retiring HERE. Everything is available through May 31, or while supplies last.

 

Here’s what I made:

Teeny Tiny Wishes Happy Birthday Bottle of M&Ms Party Favor

Today I’m sharing another project I made for my presentation at last weekend’s Spring Stamp-Along hosted by Brian King of stampwithbrian.com. It’s an oh so quick and easy project (you know how I like those!) that I made for a kid’s birthday party theme. I used a little plastic champagne bottle filled with Mini M&Ms. The bottom comes off the tiny bottle so it’s easy to fill. I know it looks as big as my gumball machine prop in the pictures, but it’s only about 3″ tall. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I’ve been saying for years that everyone should own this stamp set. It has a sentiment for all the major occasions in life. If you don’t already have it, I strongly encourage you to get it before it disappears!
