InKing Royalty Hearts Blog Hop

 


Welcome to InKing Royalty's January Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites - our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month's projects feature hearts, so prepare yourself for lots and lots of love. 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. 





I thought it would be fun to use the Nothing's Better Than stamp set, and instead of saying a day without coffee or chocolate, I would use "love" for an anniversary card for my hubby. 42 years! I am so grateful that if I had to be stuck at home, I'd be stuck at home with him. At our age, we're very lucky everything is easy and fun, even the 60 hour power failure we just shivered through. The die cut love in the heart is backed by shiny gold cardstock.

Stamps: Nothing's Better Than
Dies: Wreath Builder (heart), Detailed Hearts (background)

For Leslie

Couldn't let a Shopping Our Stash challenge go by this time of year. This one's for you, Leslie.


Re-worked my card to an exclusively red, white, and black color combo, the theme for #435. My previous post lists details on stamps and dies used. This has been a most challenging year, and the world needs as much kindness as everyone has to give.

Here's to a new normal in 2021. 

Thank you for stopping by!

InKing Royalty blog hop: New Year's Day

 


Welcome to InKing Royalty's December Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate New Year's Day, a special day to start anew and prepare for the coming year. 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. 




It has been quite a year. We are all looking forward to 2021, hoping to get back to the world we used to know. I was delighted to find this sentiment in Waterfront. It pairs perfectly with the beautiful World Map die. I've cut it out of the gold foil backed by Night of Navy, my favorite combination for this globe. The globe is centered, just looks wonky from this side angle, to capture the shiny foil. :)

I saw a card by Fiona Bradley where she snipped a section of the Detailed Hearts, which is what I did. It wasn't quite wide enough, so I snipped the center. The small gap is covered by the globe.

Here's to kindness in 2021.

Stamps: Waterfront
Dies: World Map, Detailed Hearts
Misc: Tasteful Textile 3D embosssing folder

InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Christmas!

 


Welcome to InKing Royalty's November Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate Christmas, which - believe it or not - is just around the corner. Please prepare yourself for lots of beautiful projects that share the joy of this holiday. 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. 

I created a serene, peaceful card from the inside looking out. Very 2020. It is the best time of the year, connecting with family and friends.


This card was a challenge to photograph! Don't tell Brian, but there's a sprinkle of hoarded Dazzling Diamonds on the die cut trees. I guess I won't be sending this card to him, lol! Just had to do it, though. It's so pretty irl (in real life).

Stamps: SU Grace's Garden (mirror imaged bird), SU A Merry Hello (sentiment)
Dies: SU Best Plaid, SU Majestic Mountain, 
Misc: SU Evergreen Forest ef

Let's Venti!

Are you enjoying the fabulous 2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


This is my second card for the hop, linked up at #441. Although it's not the 4th of July, it is election season! So, yes I went there. Not encouraging any further political debates, just thought a red, white, and blue card would be timely.


The Create a Smile mug is perfect for red and white stripes, colored with R29 and fussy cut. I checked my stash, and came up with a sheet of flag scrapbooking paper for the background. Sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen. I thought the sentiment was perfect for this election!

Stamps: Create a Smile Coffee First, Essentials by Ellen Oh Frappe by Julie             Ebersole
Dies: Gina Marie Designs slimline
Misc: SU Lovely Labels pick a punch, Pretty Pink Posh sequins


Thank you for visiting!

Forever Fern Mug

 Our favorite blog hop is here! 



Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This card is linked up at #91.

Have you had a favorite coffee mug or tea cup crack or chip? I have seen pretty tea cups turned into night lights, and many mugs turned into mini planters. The Stampin' Up! Forever Fern stamp set is one of my favorites, and was perfect for a fall planting:




I created a box behind the Memory Box mug. There are four layers of leaves. The "coffee" and hearts are from Cas-ual Fridays. 

Stamps: SU Forever Fern 
Dies: Memory Box Cozy Mugs, SU Forever Flourishing
Misc: Cas-ual Fridays Coffee Chips chipboard on the wood slice


So happy you stopped by. Enjoy the hop!

InKing Royalty Thanksgiving Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty's October Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate Thanksgiving, so you'll enjoy Autumn landscapes, warm colors and sweet reminders of all the reasons we have to be grateful this time of year. 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. 

We are grateful for friends and family, perhaps now more than ever. Love this sentiment from Country Home.



Forever Fern is one of my favorite sets. Very pretty inked up in many different color combinations, can't wait to try more! My Thanksgiving wreath is in fall colors: Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Mossy Meadow. 

The thin strip is made from a Smooth Sailing die, layered on a strip of cardstock colored with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Stamps: Forever Fern, Country Home (sentiment)
Dies: Forever Flourishing, Sailing Home
Embossing Folder: Pinewood Planks
