Halloween for September 2020 Inking Royalty Blog Hop

InKing Royalty Blog Hop September 2020 Halloween

 

Welcome to the September 2020 Inking Royalty Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects are all about Halloween. I used the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set, Essential Tag Punch, and Fancy Label Punch to create tags for this cute and scary little treat bag. The candies inside are Bloody Bones Sweet Tarts Candy. Ooooooo spooky! You can buy them here.

Prepare yourself for a wonderful mix of spooky, scary and sweet. 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, Ann Murray at Murray Stamps Ink, on the list you can see when you scroll down. Be sure to hop around to ALL the stops, because you definitely want to see all the projects this group has created for you!

Here’s what I did:

Stamped with the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set:

  • raven in cage in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Real Red CS

Cut using the Essential Tag Punch:

  • stamped image and sentiment

Cut using the Label Me Fancy Punch:

  • a hole in the top of each tag
  • NOTE: I found it a little difficult to line up the punch exactly where I wanted it, so I drew a tiny dot on the tags where I wanted to punch, then positioned each tag so I could see the dot through the hole in the punch. Easy Peasy!
  • Lining up the tiny hole of the Label Me Fancy Punch #stampcandy #stampinup

Put it all together:

  • put candies in a Mpsaic Gusseted Cellophane Bag and tied the top with a piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • black and white twine run through the 2 tags and tied around the top of the bag, tying a small bow in the back
  • For the photo, I glued the tags together so you could see both at the same time. You can leave them loose if you prefer.

My husband and I have a Halloween party every year, and this year’s theme was going to be “What’s black and white and red all over?” Unfortunately we had to cancel it this year. But I just realized as I was typing this post that those are the colors of my project today. I’m sure that fact was floating around in the back of my brain somewhere as I made the tags.

Tag Buffet Project Kit

Today I’m sharing the Tag Buffet Project Kit. It makes 30 large tags. Each one is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, and they also make great additions to card fronts. I don’t think any photos do these tags justice. They have gold accents, and delicate laser-cut features. Everything is pre-die cut. All you have to do is stamp the sentiments and layer the pieces together.

Pretty in Pink for the July 2020 OSAT Blog Hop

OSAT Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the July 2020 OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Pretty in Pink, so we’re featuring the amazing pinks in the Stampin’ Up! color line up. As usual, I couldn’t choose just one, so I used them all: Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Rococo Rose, Melon Mambo, and Magenta Madness. I cut strips of card stock in all the colors and arranged them in a sort of pinwheel design for the front of the card. The sentiment I cut using the Playful Alphabet Dies, Whisper White Card stock, and the new Foam Adhesive Sheets. I stamped the frame from the Swirly Frames stamp set and heat embossed it in white. For the tag, I covered one side in the same strips, and cut the top with the Fancy Tag Topper Punch.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops! I can’t wait to see what all the blog hop team members have for us today!

Fast & Simple Tropical Oasis Tag

Today’s project is a tag I made for the gifts I brought back from Mexico for my Candy Hearts team members. I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and the Tropical Oasis Trinkets along with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Every year, my husband and I join a few other couples for a midwinter tropical vacation. All the husbands met while speaking on a software conference series called No Fluff Just Stuff. They call themselves the Fluff Talkers, and the spouses call ourselves the Fluff Widows. This was the 11th year the couples have vacationed together on what we call the “Pasty Geeks” trip. This year we went to Mexico. It’s a great place to get vanilla, so that’s what we brought back as souvenirs.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 2″ x 3-1/2″
  • Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″

Cut using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch:

  • one end of the Real Red CS

Assembled the tag:

  • Whisper White CS glued onto one side of the tag
  • DSP glued onto the other side of the tag
  • trinket adhered onto the DSP using Mini Glue Dots
  • tag tied onto the bottle’s red elastic band using Linen Thread
  • NOTE: I folded the thread in half, pushed the loop end through the hole in the tag, ran the two ends through the loop, and pulled taut. Then I tied a knot in the two pieces of thread about 1/4″ or so above the tag. This leaves a bit of the thread for the tag to dangle when it’s tied to the bottle, instead of the tag being tied up against the bottle.

Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!
