Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Monster Mash.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with fun projects that are inspired by the spookiest night of the year – Halloween. 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, while Fall and the chill it brings isn’t a particular favorite of Miss Hammie’s I do love its holidays. I mean, really a legitimate excuses to eat candy and sweet potato pie, sign me up! However the blog hop isn’t about candy or pie, it’s about paper crafting. Here’s what I did, I went with a simple card. I made the card base out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock  (51/2 x 81/2 scored at 41/4). I layered a piece of dsp from the Toil and Trouble DSP pack (51/4 x 4) into the card base. The sentiment and my “scary” goblin and mummy are from the Trick or Tweet stamp set found in the Holiday catalog. The jack ‘o lantern I just added because those two need a place to put their treats and it reminds me of the plastic treat holders kids carry. I used one of the oval Stitched Framelits Dies to cut out the sentiment using the Big Shot. I popped up my sentiment and my scary guys with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored that frightening duo with Stampin Write markers in Basic Black, Basic Gray and Highland Heather.  I placed my sentiment and my “trick or treaters” on an angle, well just because I wanted to.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “September Morn,” a Neil Diamond classic from the late ’70’s. As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the beauty of Autumn – September is when the air becomes crisp and the leaves start to fall. 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, seems like I’m starting to just post when there’s a  team Blog Hop.  I’ve decided not to make any promises because it seems like other issues seem to crop up and I can’t keep my word, which really bothers me. Now on to my project for this Blog Hop. I used Old Olive, Crumb Cake and So Saffron Card stock, Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Up ink pads and Old Ive, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Write markers. I used the Many Blessings stamp set.  The cardbase is Old Olive cardstock onto which I layered Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. I cut the layers in these sizes:  Crumb Cake 5 1/4 in. x 4 in., So Saffron 5 in. x 3 3/4 in.,  and Very Vanilla 4 3/4 in. x 3 1/2 in..  I adhered the three layers together with All- Purpose liquid glue. Then the layers were adhered to the cardbase with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think this card says Autumn because of the colors.  What do you think?

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! 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 dumplings first Miss Hammie has a confession to make. While I’ve heard the phrase “The Dog Days of Summer” for as far back as I can remember hearing what seem to me to be really silly phrases I never felt compelled to investigate the meaning behind it. Enter this month’s blog hop theme. How could I design a card based on the dog days being over if I didn’t know when they started, how long they last or basically their significance.  Once again I paid a visit to my old friend Google and here’s what I found:

the sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11.

One can only guess that if they, the “dog days”, are over that indicates cooler temperatures and possibly the first indication of Fall. My first indication of Fall has always been when the leaves start to change color and fall so that’s the idea behind my card.

I decided not to go thru a long drawn out explanation of how I created it. I borrowed a page from our beloved leader’s book and used layers. My cardbase is Crumb Cake, the layers are Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla. I used Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze ink. The images and sentiments are from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. To me it definitely speaks to the end of the sultry days of summer and the crispness of Fall. I’m pleased with how it came together and I’m certain that you’ll like it as well. A743FC31-4E10-4D90-927A-5483875EE9B8

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,

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).

FBF439DC-AE4A-431F-98E6-8647766217D7

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
