Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.” We are half-way through the year, so there’s no better time to start thinking about the joy of Christmas. 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 dumplings, Miss Hammie has been MIA for a while. I’ve been dealing with a few things and I’m afraid my head hasn’t been in a creative space. Rest assured that’s all behind me and I decided to try and create a fun card for this month’s Blog Hop. My card was created using one of our new InColors, Call Me Clover, I think it’s a really Christmasy green, Real Red and Whisper White card stock. I used the Large Letter Framelits and the Big Shot to cut out the letters. It’s sort of an accordion card. I used the White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon to help secure it. The card base consists of two pieces of 5.5 x 8.5 inch Call Me Clover cardstock scored at 4.25 inch. I accented with Real Red cardstock cut to measure 5 x 3.75 inches. The layer on the front was attached with Stampin Dimensionals while the interior layers were attached with Mini Glue Dots. The Ho, Ho, Ho was attached using Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue. I think it’s really cute and a wee bit quirky and I believe you will also. Take a look.

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

 

. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. 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 let’s get to it.  The theme of our blog hop this month is “Here Comes the Sun”. I’ve been wanting to use the new Enjoy Life stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s new Annual catalog. This stamp set has a few sentiments and images that remind me of my niece and what says fun to her, running. What better time to run than when there’s sunshine, not hot, sunny since running in the rain really isn’t fun. As per usual I digress, sorry about that. I used two new colors, Balmy Blue ( at least I hope that’s Balmy Blue) and Call Me Clover as well as Whisper White and Daffodil Delight. My card base is Balmy Blue cardstock onto which I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped my images on a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the runner and Call Me Clover ink to stamp the grass. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the sentiment which I cut out using one of the smaller dies from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies and my Big Shot. Using my two inch circle punch I punched out a circle of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I attached that to the Balmy Blue layer using Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Blue  which I also used to attach the sentiment. Lastly using Stampin’ Dimensionals I attached that layer to the Whisper White layer. Hopefully you understood that my sweet ones, if not here’s the photo. I was surprised by how much I like it as my creative side seems to have been on an extended vacation of late. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

BIG NEWS !!!

Happy Marvelous Monday my sweet dumplings and if you knew how much I once dreaded Mondays, well that’s a story for another time.  I have ginormously big news to share with you so that makes it marvelous.  I’ve been bending your ears about one of my favorite Stampin’ Up products, it’s the monthly subscription crafting box Paper Pumpkin, for quite some time. Then I show you projects that I’ve made using products from one of our catalogs. Well my sweet ones Stampin’ Up has come up with the perfect solution. They’re coordinating the June Paper Pumpkin to the Broadway Bound product suite in the new Annual catalog. 

A39BA8A7-40C2-4FEF-8B93-350077FF1A72

Are you thinking “This looks interesting what do I need to do to get in on this?”. It’s as simple as 1,2,3, just subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by June 10th to get the June kit.  Since I know you want the full experience you also need to get items from the Broadway Bound suite. There’s some really fun designer series paper and coordinating cardstock, 1/2 inch satin ribbon, metallic pearls and cute candle embellishments.

50C8D23A-C254-439D-B509-348C1836F798There’s a bundle that consists of the Broadway Birthday stamp set and the Broadway Lights Framelits dies. Now if you’re a newbie to paper crafting and just want to give this a try I would probably give the bundle a pass even though if you have a bit of experience the bundle does save you 10% over buying these items separately. However if this is a test drive for you I suggest the designer series paper and coordinating cardstock pack and the metallic pearls. The catalog is good until this time next year so if you enjoy it you can pick up the other items later. Now remember you MUST SUBSCRIBE BY JUNE 10 to get the June kit.  Here’s an additional incentive if you subscribe using the link below as a thank you from me I’ll send you one of the new Annual catalogs. In the event you can’t wait for your hard copy you can access the online version via my online store. There’s a link below for that too. As you peruse the catalog and like all us crafters start thinking “ Well I need this too and ooh that’s so pretty I want that too”. Once you start totally those up you’ll see why I say the best choice is to sign up. Once you become a demonstrator like moi, that’s right my sweet dumplings Miss Hammie is trilingual, lol not really. I actually know a little French, more than a little Spanish and I’m a native English speaker, but as often happens I digress. Demonstrators get a 20% discount and you’re under no obligation to sell to anyone. Avid crafters who love the products enjoy the savings that being a demonstrator gets them. When you sign up you pay $99.00 and get to select $125.00 worth of products that ships to you free of charge. If you decide nope this was a bad idea after a week or two you can simply shoot them an email and say that you no longer want to be a demonstrator and that’s that. There’s no fee to quit, you don’t have to return anything. One of the many things that I can say about Stampin’ Up without hesitation is that they just want their demonstrators and customers to be happy. You can be part of this by joining my team. There’s a link below for that too. 

Well my dumplings that’s it for me for today so TTFN

Father’s Day

Hi again dumplings, In case you didn’t hear this information already the new Stampin’ Up Annual catalog is live and you can order now. Well not right now because I would like for you to check out these cards. Now the dsp and stamp set have retired, but the ink that I used for both and the punch are available in the new catalog.  Besides you never know, things sometimes turn up on the Clearance Rack which you can access thru my Online Store. Anywho here are the cards. I really loved this stamp set, no that’s not true, I loved the entire suite. It was (and for me is) absolutely perfect for the men in my life. They don’t hunt, they don’t fish and while one has owned a truck, he doesn’t own one now.  Moving on here are the cards.

06180E76-6CBC-46D1-AE59-6F685BE2901F

The card base is Crumb Cake onto which I adhered a layer of Tranquil Tide. The last layer is dsp from the True Gentleman dsp pack. I added two slim strips of Tranquil Tide and Dad also in Tranquil Tide. I used the Stampin’ Up Adhesive Strips to attach Dad to the dsp and Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid glue to attach the strips. I used the Large Letter Framelit dies and the Big Shot to cut out the letters.  I think any Dad would be happy to open an envelope and find this inside (probably along with the keys to a new vehicle).

Next we have what’s called an Impossible Card. I saw it on Splitcoast Stampers and had to give it a try. The card base is Night of Navy, still available. The dsp is also from the True Gentleman dsp pack ( you’re really angry with yourself now aren’t you ). Both sentiments are from the Truly Tailored stamp set and I used the Tailored Tag punch to cut out the “To a classy kind of guy”.

I’m sorry you missed out on this, if you did. I’m positive some of my sweet dumplings followed my advice and checked out the Occasions catalog and already have their Father’s Day cards ready to go. However as I promised I’ll find some appropriate dsp and a stamp set and do these same cards with products you can get now. Be good because I’ve got some big, no huge news for you on Monday. Or you could come hang out with me on my FB page, Robbye Stamps tomorrow for a stroll thru the new catalog. If you can’t make it I’ll see you on Marvelous Monday, TTFN

It’s Here ! ! !

A fabulous Friday to you my sweet dumplings.  Last night when I was finishing up my Father’s Day cards, remember I said on Wednesday that I would share a couple of Father’s Day cards today, it hit me. Like a truckload of bricks it hit me, “Aye Dios mío estupida” the new catalog goes live tomorrow and these are out of items from the Occasions catalog which ends in about 20 minutes. All that I can say is don’t despair I promise to redo these with new products intime for you to have them ready before the 17th. Also as an added bonus I have a card to show you that’s created from all new products, well almost all new. It does give you a look at one of the new InColors in action, Grapefruit Grove to be specific. It also uses the Love What You do stamp set and the 1/8 inch Grosgrain ribbon in Grapefruit Grove. All three are available in the new Annual catalog. The card base is Grapefruit Grove. I layered a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock onto the card base. Onto the Crumb Cake I layered a piece of dsp from the InColor 6 X 6 dsp pack. Finally I added a piece of Crumb Cake. I flagged the end of it using the Tailored Tag punch, stamped the sentiment and added a tiny bow.  I’m pleased with the outcome. If you want to peruse the new catalog it will be available online today. You can access it thru my online store and I’ll be providing a link. It goes live at noon mountain time so that 2:00pm EDT, 1:00 pm CDT and 11/00am PDT. Here’s the card.

I made this for a customer of mine that had placed an order. Guess I’ll post those Father’s Day cards either in a separate post or tomorrow. Either way I plan to share them with you. And since I’m not feeling snarky I won’t even say that I told you to check out the Occasions catalog because there were some really beautiful papers, interesting tools and embellishments in there. Oopsie guess I just did. Who knows sometimes things turn up on the Clearance Rack. I’ll post a link to that too.  If you enjoy paper crafting and want to score a 20% discount on products consider joining my team, there’s a link below for that too.

Thank You Cards

Wonderful Wednesday my sweet dumplings. Today we’re going to visit the type of card that everyone should have on hand all the time. In fact you should have several along with envelopes and forever stamps. I know you’re thinking birthday and to be honest you should have a nice supply of those on hand, but I meant thank you cards.  Do you have any idea how wonderful it feels to be appreciated? Someone does something unexpected for you wouldn’t a lovely card with a handwritten note inside be a nice way to say thank you.  I have a few people that have done things I really appreciated, here are two of the cards that I made to send to them. I used dsp from the Share What You Love dsp pack. I used Mint Macaron and Petal Pink cardstock to make my card bases. The sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set. I stamped it in Tranquil Tide ink and then using the Big Shot and the next to largest oval die in the Stitched Shapes Framelits cut it out. I used Tombow Multi-Purpose liquid glue to adhere the dsp to the cardbase and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the front of the card.

I am really pleased with how it all came together and I hope all my dumplings like them and get inspired to create and keep thank you cards handy. I’ve been considering offering a free pdf of one of my cards each week. It will give you the dimensions and the products that I used. If you think you might enjoy that let me know. I haven’t included any business references so far this week. However here’s a heads-up.  On Monday I used a stamp set that you could have gotten as a free gift with a fifty dollar purchase and now it’s gone forever, bye bye, you missed it. Well today is May 30 and all Retiring Products will go away forever too on May 31st at 11:59pm mountain time because our new annual catalog, where that beautiful dsp that I used today is, goes live on June 1st. There are some really deep discounts. There’s a link below to my online store. Use it and save yourself a dollar or two or you could join my team and score $125.00 worth of products that you select for $99.00 and you get free shipping. There’s a link below to do that too. As they say on game shows “The clock is ticking “. Be good dumplings until Friday when I share a few ideas for Father’s Day. TTFN

Graduation Time

Hello my sweet dumplings and here’s hoping your Memorial Day is awesome. It’s late May, early June so that means graduations galore.  This year I only have one special graduate and I hope she thinks this card that I made for her is one half as special as she is. I decided on an eclipse card, it’s sort of my farewell to the Large Number Framelits that are retiring in a few short days. Honestly I’ll be holding on to mine because they’re great for birthdays and anniversaries. I used one of our new colors Balmy Blue because it is the closest to her school colors. I used two stamp sets the sentiment on the front of the card is from a new set in theStampin’ Up Annual catalog that goes live on June 1st call Hand Delivered. The sentiment inside the card is from a Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Amazing You(sorry, its no longer available).

Dumplings I feel as if I owe you guys an explanation on my absence. Things have been a little off balance lately.  Without going into a lot of detail I haven’t felt very creative. I just couldn’t seem to get it together. Then I had a visit from my daughter and didn’t have time for much else. Well last night everything just seems to come together and the card above and the one that I’ll share on Wednesday are the end result. Hopefully the dry spell is over and there are no more heartbreaking surprises looming. Much love my sweet dumplings and TTFN
