Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today – there’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Hello my sweet dumplings. I’ve decided not to be redundant and tell you the theme of this Blog Hop again. Instead we’ll get right to my card and why I made it. I don’t know why, but the word green always makes me think of Spring and new beginnings. Spring always makes me think of Easter and our Lord. They say never discuss politics or religion so I’m not going to, but my card reflects my feelings about the color Green. I used two shades of green for my card. The card base was made with Old Olive cardstock. I added a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to my card base because I like that color and it will be retiring soon. I added it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I had added a layer of Whisper White cardstock to my Lemon Lime Twist layer using Snail adhesive. I used two of the Layering Rectangles dies and the Big Shot to cut my layers. The sentiment on my card is from His Grace stamp set and the stamp I used for the grass is from the Enjoy Life stamp set. I used Old Olive ink for both the sentiment and the grass. The Cross was made using Kraft paper and a die from the Cross of Hope Framelits dies set.  I hope you’ll like this card as much as I do. It’s simple and the message touches a special place in my heart.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. 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.

Hello my sweet sugar dumplings and welcome to the February InKing Royalty Blog Hop. This month’s theme is, as stated above, Birthday. When I agreed to participate in the Hop, and I should point out our team leader or upline always asks if we want to, I thought Birthday this should be easy, a piece of cake (boy that was cheesy). I even knew or had an idea which one of my new stamp sets I was going to use. Only problem with that plan, the poltergeist. Did I forget to mention that I believe there’s a poltergeist in my house? The house is almost 75 years old and I often get the feeling a previous owner has a playful side and that’s why things seem to disappear, like the stamp set I had planned to use. Oh it will show up after the Hop. Then I thought of another stamp set I could use, but couldn’t decide on a color. I sort of try to picture cards in my head before I sit down to make them and this wasn’t coming together. I even considered just pulling out of the Hop, but my pride wouldn’t let me. I’m not going to be outdone by that poltergeist (or my forgetfulness). I said to myself birthday cards are a classic. What else is classic? Then it hit me Classic Simpliy. That’s right dumplings Classic Simplicity and what exemplifies that better than classic black and white, nothing. My card starts with a Whisper White card base that measures 51/2 x 41/4 inches. I layered a piece of Basic Black cardstock that measures 51/4 x 4 inches onto the card base. Then using the large die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits and the Big Shot I cut out a piece of Whisper White. Then using the Happy Birthday  Thinlits die and the Big Shot I cut out 4 happy birthdays from Basic Black cardstock. Then I layered them together using the Fine Tip Liquid Glue. I used the same glue to attach the layered Happy Birthday to the Whisper White piece I cut out previously. To add a little sparkle I added 3 rhinestones. Finally I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach this to the card base. I’ve always said nothing beats classic black and white and I think this card is a pretty good example of that.

January InKing Blog Hop

8854315f-f330-4a48-98b6-4707db29e0b3

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around LOVE. You’re certain to see some amazing ideas for Valentine’s Day in the hop, but there are other ways to honor love in the lineup, too. What fun! 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.

Hello my sweet dumplings. I know that I’ve been remiss, but the truth is I just haven’t felt extremely creative. So boo hoo poor Miss Hammie get over it and I’m really giving it the old retirement home try. That was a joke, I haven’t moved to that stage just yet. The theme for this month’s blog is LOVE and I had to really give some thought to how I would express it.

There are many types of love and I thought perhaps I would veer a little away from what one might expect. I decided on one that I experience every single day.

Heres a list of the things that I used to create my card.

I used components from 2 stamp sets, Nine Lives and Happy Tails. I used Badic Black and Melon Mambo ink. Whisper White and I believe Shaded Spruce cardstock. I’m afraid I don’t know the exact shade of the brown cardstock because it was a scrap. I used a pattern from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper stack. I also used the Dog Builder punch, the Stitched Seasons Framelits, my Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer.

Here’s my card

That’s right the unconditional love of our furry friends.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the bloghop, but since I’m the last person let’s say I hope you checked out all the amazing creations that came before me. If you started with me then use the guide below to start at the beginning and be sure to show my team mates lots of love.

It’s 2019

Hello again my sweet sugar dumplings, let’s continue. I posted the last card of 2018 so on to the first card of 2019. For this card I went with a really basic no frills look. Perhaps Miss Hammie has decided to adopt a “Take No Prisoners” attitude for 2019. The card says classic to me. It has a Whisper White 51/2 inch x 41/4 inch card base. I layered a 51/4 inch x 4 inch piece of Night of Navy cardstock onto the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Actually before adhering the Night of Navy layer to the card base I adhered the 2019 that I made using the Large Number framelits dies, Silver Foil paper and my Big Shot with TomBow All Purpose Liquid Glue.  I did absolutely no stamping on this card. The sentiment on the inside was a handwritten note from me to each recipient that included what I wished for them in 2019.

There’s a new catalog available, the Stampin’ Up Occasions catalog. It has some absolutely beautiful stamp sets and papers. I’m considering doing a YouTube video or a Facebook Live this month to show all the Mommies how to make cute Valentines for your child’s class. There might even be a treat holder. However I digress, along with the Occasions catalog it’s my favorite time of the Stampin’ Up year,

SALE-A-BRATION !!!!!

What is Sale-a-Bration you ask?  This is the time when if you place a $50.00 (sorry that $50.00 doesn’t include tax and s&h) order you get to pick a FREE item from our Sale-a-Bration brochure. Also like last year there are different levels of free items available. There are the $50.00 and the $100.00 items. For example if you place a $100.00 order you can select either two items from the $50.00 category or one from the $100.00 category. I placed my , well one of the orders that I’ll place during SAB, and selected a really awesome set of Framelits dies. I will be posting a blog tomorrow using a Sale-a-Bration that I think you’re going to love.

Well be good dumplings and I’ll be back tomorrow with another project.

It’s a New Year

Yeppers, that’s right my sweet sugar dumplings it’s a NEW YEAR and boy is Miss Hammie glad that 2018 is D.O.N.E. done!!! Sure I gained another birthday straight out of the gate, January 3rd in case you were curious.  I’m working on goals and plans to make 2019 my best year so far in all areas of my life.

However I’m here to share my craftiness and I have to admit my last card of 2018 is, IMHO, so beautiful I’m going to not only share my first card of 2019, but my last card of 2018 as well. I’m also not sharing information on the 2018 card other than the stamp set which I believe is still available, but don’t quote me on that. I will say this if you’re new to my blog or new to Stampin’ Up products or both even new to crafting that I would love to be the demonstrator that helps guide you.

I found myself in need of some thank you cards    in December and they had, not I wanted, they had to be special.  Here is that card. I made this card using the Painted Harvest stamp set. It’s an extremely versatile stamp set.  In my eyes I achieved beautiful, what do you think?

( for some reason WP is behaving a tad oddly so I will be adding another post with my other card).

December InKing Royalty Blog Hop

B19DECE0-3014-4EF7-AB41-851B741A0DAD

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by beautiful paper and beautiful ribbons – how clever! 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.

Here’s my project for today’s Blog Hop.

0500E23D-3E14-4E35-89A9-ACD8B8FAB368

To me nothing is prettier during the holiday season than Silver Glimmer Paper. For this card I layered Silver Glimmer Paper on a Whisper White 51/2 x 41/4 card base. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to layered a  5x 33/4 piece of Balmy Blue, to which I had added a piece of the White Flocked Polka Dot ribbon, onto the Silver Glimmer Paper. To embellish I used various size snowflake dies from the Snowfall Thinlits dies collection along with the Big Shot to cut out Silver Glimmer snowflakes. The sentiments, both on the front and inside are from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set. I used a scalloped and two plain ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies to cut out a Silver Glimmer Scalloped Oval, a Balmy Blue Oval and a Whisper White Oval. The sentiment was stamped on the Whisper White oval that was layered on the Balmy Blue oval using Stampin’  Dimensionals. Then I layered that onto the Silver Glimmer Scalloped oval using Snail adhesive. The snowflakes were attached using the FineTip Glue Pen.  I really enjoyed making this card and I’m hoping that you’ll like it as well.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the bloghop,

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “We are Family.” As you might guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by family – we have a wide variety of projects today! 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.

Hello my sweet honey dumplings the theme for this month Blog Hop is “We are Family” . I remember when they would play that song almost everywhere and everyone would get up and dance. For me family is about giving and sharing. Three things always remind me of family Thanksgiving, Christmas and Birthdays. I had a really difficult time deciding what type of card to make, in fact I actually made two.

The first card I made using some of that yummy new gingham dsp that will be available in the Occasions catalog. I chose the Lemon Lime Twist color. I made a standard cardbase from LLT cardstock to which I added first a layer of Whisper White cardstock and then the gingham dsp. As an accent I used a piece of the new Flax ribbon. The stamp set I used was Beautiful You from the Annual catalog.  Since my younger sister has a birthday next month and the sort of Mad Man vibe I get from that stamp set is perfect for her I know exactly which card will accompany her gift.

The second card I made was Christmas themed. I have to admit November, even the last week, is a tad early for me.  I like to be fully recovered from my Thanksgiving food coma before I move on to the grand daddy of all holidays, Christmas. However I digress, for this card I made a standard cardbase from Night of Navy cardstock. I added a layer of Silver Foil paper. I had attached a large Whisper White oval that I made using one of the Layering Ovals dies to the center of the Silver Foil. To opposite corners I added accents also made from Whisper White cardstock and dies from the Detailed Deer Thinlits dies. Using both Crumb Cake ink and cardstock I stamped the two small deers in the Dashing Deer Stampin set and cut them out using the corresponding dies. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I placed the deers inside the large oval. I added a simple sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock then cut it out with a small oval die with the next size die I cut out a Night of Navy oval to mount it on using Mini glue dots. That was added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
