Seasonal Chums Window Box

Welcome to InKing Royalty's September Blog Hop! Today's Tricked Out Treats Blog Hop is filled with spooky, fun projects for Halloween. We are excited to share our creations with you today and hope these projects inspire you. After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to Robin's blog (link at the end of this post).

I love front and back stamp sets! Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums makes the cutest tags, but what fun it is to make spinners! To color the pumpkin, I smooshed a small acrylic block onto the stamp pad (Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, & Summer Sun an old yellow I had but any yellow will do) and used a small brush dipped in water on the acrylic block, one color at a time.

The cute treat box is made from the Stampin' Up! Window Box thinlits. I trimmed the tabs and didn't fold the top down. You will need to cut an extra back piece to make the spinner (cut the side pieces off). The awesome bats and spider webs are from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Tags framelits. Almost wish I was still working so I could have this on my desk! Found the perfect pumpkin wrapped Dove treats to mix in with the Brach's candy corn. It has to be Brach's when it comes to candy corn! 

Thought you might like a peek at the back of the spinner. This is a fun project that can be for any season. Hope you give it a try!

Merry Cafe for Fall Coffee Lovers

Time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop! This bloghop is quarterly, and fun, fun, fun. So many beautiful coffee cards; you must see them all. Start here. This card is #140!
Finally inked Stampin' Up!'s Merry Cafe, perfect for fall and Christmas. It was great to use some hoarded patterned paper! Used a texture stamp on the cup using Crumb Cake. Picked out the orange sequins from an older Pretty Pink Posh Halloween sequin mix.

Enbigganed the pic so you can see those eyes!

Be sure to hop the other blogs. The creations are always inspiring. Thank you to Amy for your hard work on these bloghops!

98th Birthday!

Made a special card for a wonderful friend. It's an A7, larger than the usual A2 size I usually make. This size accomodated the large numbers. So happy I purchased the Large Numbers framelits. So handy for special birthdays, and I think 98 is pretty special! Our friend is legally blind; I wanted to make a sturdy card with lots of texture and dimension.

The Stardream cardstock didn't photograph very well. The cake is citrine but looks brighter in real life. I didn't want to use white, thought it would look like a wedding cake. Such a pretty sapphire blue! The gold glitter paper is from a 6x6 pad. No stamps!

Rainbow Smoosh

Came back from vacation and managed to make another card for Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker! 

Laura Bassen makes everything look like so much fun, smooshing was no exception.

Okay, so the middle got a little muddy, Laura tried to warn us! Altenew Halftone Circles to the rescue. Smooshed using saran wrap. Really fun, and I do like how it turned out. 

Stamps: Altenew Halftone Circles
Dies: Your Next Stamp Fancy Thanks
Inks: Distress inks
Embellies: Pretty Pink Posh 6mm sparkling clear sequins

Always so much more fun when you visit!

Happy Birthday Rainbow

I'm such a fan of Online Card Classes! The current class is Rainbow Maker, and wow it's already been packed with techniques to try.

Wasn't sure which gallery to post this on. I decided on Day 2, since more of the card is stamping. Every other stamped image is overstamped with the next color, but ran out of room working right to left so just stamped purple on the left. Still very pretty!  Blended a rainbow strip with the same colors and used the Lawn Fawn happy birthday die. The Pretty Pink Posh border die finished it off. Wow, love how it turned out!

This is the strip I blended to cut the die. Thinking I should trim it up and use it on another card, right?

Stamps: MFT Abstract Art
Dies: Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border, Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Borders 2
Inks: Distress Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Lucky Clover, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple

Happy you're here, hope to see you in class!

When I saw the color palette for Ellen Hutson's June Pin-Sights Challenge I knew it was the perfect time to play with the Mondo Peony by Julie Ebersole and my Kuretake Zig Clear Color markers.

The BeYOUtiful die cut in bold black was perfect! A splash of Pretty Pink Posh Strawberry Burst sequins was the right shade and bling.

Washi Framed Coffee

My second card, another Stamplorations stamp I'm using for the first time. Linked up at #130.

Thought I'd frame the Framed Coffee Word Art with washi from Sweet Stamp Shop. This washi set is adorable!
