September 2021 InKing Royalty Blog Hop – Candy & Treats

Welcome to the September 2021 InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month’s projects feature candy and treats, so prepare your sweet tooth for some wonderful inspiration. 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.

Okay, so what do you do when you’ve spent days packing for a long weekend stamping retreat, and only remember you committed to do a blog hop the night before it goes live? Oops! Well, I didn’t want to undo all that packing, so first I checked to see what I could get to easily. Stamps and inks no, but dies yes. I was able to maneuver a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine out of its box. And I got to a Tombstone Treat Box. Okay, that would have to do. Of course, the project had to be quick and easy so I could get my post done in time. What I came up with is a spooky tombstone with twigs and fallen leaves, that you can put goodies in.

Here’s what I made:

Spooky Tombstone reat Box, Intricate Leaves Dies, Ornate Frames Dies #stampcandy

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut using the Intricate Leaves Dies:

  • several of the small leaves and 3 branches from scraps of Basic Black card stock (CS)

Cut using the Ornate Frames Dies:

  • frame from a scrap of Basic Grey CS

Put it all together:

  • burnished the folds in the box base and lid with a Bone Folder, then folded them to assemble (The box comes with peel off adhesive already attached!)
  • frame glued onto the front of the tombstone (top of the lid)
  • leaves glued along the bottom of the front
  • That’s it! Easy Peasy, Toil & Trouble! Or is it Bubble Bubble, Lemon Squeezy?

August 2021 IRBH – Leaves & Trees

 

Welcome to the August 2021 IRBH! This month’s projects feature leaves and trees, so you are likely to find lots of inspiration for Autumn. 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 further down this post.

Here’s what I made:

Gold Holly Leaves, Christmas to Remember stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies #stampcandy

 

The color is a little off in this photo, but you can see some of the sparkle and shine of the Gold Shimmer Vellum and the heat embossed sentiment:

Gold Holly Leaves, Christmas to Remember stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies #stampcandy

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Gold Foil Sheet layer cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Gold Shimmer Vellum layer cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Christmas to Remember stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then heat embossed in gold

Cut using the Seasonal Labels Dies:

  • sentiment

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • a ring from a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet using the two largest plain circle dies

Made the Wreath:

  • adhered Gold Holly Leaves, one by one, around the gold foil die cut circle, using Mini Glue Dots
  • I used a little over 2 packs of the leaves. You could use fewer by making the circle base smaller and making the wreath thinner.
  • The silicone craft sheet is the perfect surface to create the wreath. I happened to have the backing sheet from some labels on my table, and I would’ve had to stand up to get the craft sheet, so of course I used the label backing. But the craft sheet would’ve been better.
  • Gold Holly Leaves, Christmas to Remember stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies #stampcandy
  • back of the wreathGold Holly Leaves, Christmas to Remember stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies #stampcandy

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Gold Foil layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Stampin’ Seal+
  • Basic Black CS layer adhered onto the Gold Foil layer using Stampin’ Seal+
  • sentiment adhered onto the Gold Shimmer Vellum layer using Stampin’ Seal+
  • wreath adhered onto the Gold Shimmer Vellum layer using Mini Glue Dots
  • Gold Shimmer Vellum layer adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Stampin’ Seal+ under the wreath and sentiment, so it wouldn’t show through
  • Very Vanilla CS glued onto the inside of the card base
