October 2020 InKing Royalty Blog Hop - Thanksgiving

Welcome to the October 2020 InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Thanksgiving themed projects. I used Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and Cinnamon Cider card stock to create little treat boxes. I made the tage using layers of card stock and two punches: the Lovely Layers Pick a Punch and the Triple Banner Punch (aka Banner Triple Punch.)

Be sure to hop around to all the stops because you definitely don’t want to miss any of the projects this super talented group has made for you today! Scroll down to see the blog hop list.

Here’s what I did:

Cut with my paper trimmer:

  • Cinnamon Cider card stock (CS) cut to 3-15/16″ x 3-15/16″
  • Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Rich Razzleberry CS cut to 1″ x 5″
  • Mango Melody CS cut to 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 1/2″ x 5″

Scored with Simply Scored Tool:

  • Cinnamon Cider CS scored 1″ from each side
  • DSP scored 1/2″ from each side
  • NOTE: You can score using the Paper Trimmer, but for boxes I prefer to use the Simply Scored tool, just to make sure all the sides are scored exactly the same.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • the box and lid as shown in the diagram (Click on the diagram to see it larger.)

treat box & lid #stampcandy

Cut using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch:

  • one end of each of the three CS strips

Stamped with the Banner Year stamp set:

  • sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink onto the Whisper White CS strip

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • the opposite end of the three CS strips, after they were glued together

Assembled the box and lid:

  • burnished the folds in the box and lid with a Bone Folder
  • each tab of the lid glued onto the inside of the adjacent side
  • box sides folded up, and tabs tucked inside the adjacent side (You can glue them if you want, but I usually leave them loose. I like the way it flops open when you take off the lid.)
  • tucked in some goodies (4 Hershey kisses fit perfectly) and put on the lid
  • wrapped the ribbon around the box and tied in a bow

Assembled the tag:

  • Whisper White CS strip glued onto the Mango Melody CS strip
  • Mango Melody CS strip glued onto the Rich Razzleberry CS strip
  • notched the end with the Banner Triple Punch
  • tag tucked under the ribbon on the box

Sweetest Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green

For today’s cards, I used the Sweetest Time Bundle (Sweetest Time stamp set and Sweetest Border Dies) to make just the sweetest Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green Christmas holiday card. These may not seem like very traditional Christmas colors, but I think they work, don’t you? I got my inspiration from a card on page 73 of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Here’s what I made:

I made two different cards. They have different sentiments, and the holly leaves and pine sprigs are colored differently. Which do you like better?

Here’s how I made the Sweetest Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green card:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White Thick CS layer cut to 5-1/2″ x 3″

Stamped with the Sweetest Time stamp set:

  • sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS (I used a different sentiment on each of the two cards. I used the same color ink, and the same die to cut both.)
  • candles in Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • candle flames in So Saffron ink
  • NOTE: On one I stamped the flames on the same CS as the candles, then fussy cut around them. On the other one, I fussy cut only the candles and adhered them onto the card, then stamped the flames above them, which I found to be much easier.

Cut using the Sweetest Borders Dies:

  • the Whisper White Thick CS layer using the holly border die
  • 2 holly leaves and a pine sprig from a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:

  • sentiment

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • the 3 candles

Colored using Sponge Daubers:

  • all die cuts in Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green inks
  • NOTE: I made two cards. On one I colored all the holly in Bermuda Bay and the pine sprigs in Granny Apple Green. On the other one I did the opposite.

Colored using a Stampin’ Blends Marker:

  • white ribbon in Light Bermuda Bay

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • ribbon adhered onto the layer using Stampin’ Seal+, wrapping the ends around to the back of the layer
  • 3 candles glued onto the front of the card base, overlapping them slightly
  • die cut holly layer glued onto the front of the card base, over the candles, and lining up the bottom edges
  • sentiment glued over the holly layer, hiding the bottoms of the candle (On one I glued the sentiment, and on the other one I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.)
  • individual holly leaves and pine sprig glued onto the sentiment

All is Bright with Sweetest Borders

I used the Sweetest Borders Dies and Sweetest Time stamp set along with ribbon and pearls to make this sweet holiday card. I used Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam instead of the more traditional red and darker green, for a subtler nod to the holidays. It also just happens to be one of my favorite color combos.

  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 3-1/2″ x 3/4″  for the sentiment

Stamped with the Sweetest Time stamp set:

  • holly leaves in Soft Sea Foam ink, and berries in Petal Pink ink, onto the Whisper White CS for the inside

Cut using the Sweetest Borders Dies:

  • bottom edge of the largest Soft Sea Foam CS layer using the holly border die
  • NOTE: I kept the two largest holly berry circles that came out of the die cut

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • ribbon adhered onto the top part of the die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer using Stampin’ Seal +, wrapping the ends around to the back
  • die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer glued onto the front of the card base, lining up the top edges
  • 2 saved Soft Sea Foam CS circles glued into their holes in the center of the die cut area
  • sentiment glued onto the Petal Pink CS layer
  • Petal Pink CS layer glued onto the small Soft Sea Foam CS layer
  • small Soft Sea Foam CS layer glued onto the larger Whisper White CS layer
  • larger Whisper White CS layer adhered onto the die cut Soft Sea Foam CS layer, over the ribbon, using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • a second piece of ribbon tied in a bow around the first ribbon, to the left of the sentiment
  • pearls applied over the “berries” in the die cut. I used 5 small, 10 medium, and 2 large pearls. The 2 large ones are on the filled in circles. You could leave out the saved circles, and let the 2 large pearls have a Petal Pink ring around them.
  • Whisper White CS with stamped holly glued onto the inside of the card base

 

Here you can see where I glued the two largest circles back in the holes for the two largest pearls:Sweetest Time Bundle (Sweetest Time stamp set and Sweetest Borders Dies) #stampcandy #stampinup #handmadecards

Christmas Means More to a Singing Reindeer

Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Christmas Means More stamp set and ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper. I also used the Layering Ovals Dies, Peek-a-Hoot Dies, and Sweetest Borders Dies to create this fun singing reindeer. I used to do a lot of what we used to call “punch art” – creating something using punched (or die cut) pieces. I’m not sure why I stopped, because I always enjoyed it. One of my faves was this reindeer. Today I made his using die cut shapes.

  • DSP strip cut to 4″ x 7/8″

Stamped with the Christmas Means More stamp set:

  • sentiment in Real Red ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside

Cut scraps of CS using the Layering Ovals Dies:

  • Crumb Cake CS using the largest die
  • Crumb Cake CS using a middle sized die

  • Basic Black CS using the smallest die

Cut using the Peek-a-Hoot Dies:

  • a scrap of Early Espresso CS using the larger branch die

Cut using the Sweetest Borders Dies:

  • a scrap of Real Red CS using the little circle die

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Basic Black CS oval glued onto the smaller Crumb Cake CS oval, near the bottom end, to make the head
  • Whisper White CS oval glued onto the larger Crumb Cake CS oval, near the top end, to make the body
  • bottom end of smaller Crumb Cake oval glued onto the top end of the larger Crumb Cake oval
  • Early Espresso branches glued onto the back of the head, near the top, going out to the side instead of straight up
  • small Real Red CS circle glued onto the very tip of the head, for the nose
  • reindeer glued onto the DSP layer, then excess body trimmed away from the bottom edge (leaving the sides of the body loose if you want the song book to stand out from the card front)
  • fold in the Real Red CS burnished with a Bone Folder, to make the song book
  • fold in each 3/8″ x 1″ piece of Crumb Cake CS burnished with a Bone Folder, to make the arms
  • 3/8″ x 1/2″ piece of Early Espresso CS glued onto one end of each 3/8″ x 1″ piece of Crumb Cake CS
  • Early Espresso ends rounded with Paper Snips, then a skinny V cut from the end, to make the hooves
  • front part of arms glued onto the front of the Real Read CS book, folding the rest to the back
  • adhered the song book (see 3 options below)
  • DSP layer glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP strip glued onto the Whisper White CS for the inside
  • Whisper White CS with sentiment glued onto the inside of the card base

Adhered the song book:

The bottom of the book should be even with the bottom of the reindeer body and DSP layer.

  • First is the way I did in the first 2 photos above. Be aware that you will need to hand deliver this card, or send it in a box. 
    • back part of arms wrapped around and glued onto the back side of the reindeer body
  • Second is the way I did in the bottom 3 photos above.
    • 2 layers of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals applied along the inside of the fold in the Real Red CS book
    • back part of arms folded back and glued onto the card front, with the Dimensionals sticking to the reindeer body
    • Third is to glue the book flat. Simply fold the back part of the arms around to the back of the book and glue the whole thing onto the card front. I would suggest applying a little ink along the spine before gluing it down, so it will still look like a book.
