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

Hello my darling honey dumplings. Here’s the 411 on the Online Extravaganza. Today and tomorrow and then as quickly as it came it will be GONE. Today and tomorrow ( I’m trying to drive home that you only have about 5 1/2 hours left today and tomorrow to get these products from the Annual catalog. The items that are available are Tools and Ink. This would have been perfect for me before OnStage Live ( I’ll be sharing pictures of the swaps that I collected during OnStage after the Extravaganza). I needed Night of Navy ink for 42 cards and saving 10% on an ink pad and reinker would have been sweet.
Think of the cards you’ll be making for the holidays a couple or three extra ink pads would probably come in handy. There is also a select group of tools that’s also available at a 10% savings. Now I don’t know if you’ve been lackadaisical about this or not, but come Thursday Miss Hammie doesn’t want to hear any “Oh woe is me, I missed the Online Extravaganza Miss Hammie , think we could maybe cut a deal?” My answer Ahhhh, no. While I might run a few specials in 2019, I practically shouted this from the rooftops. However there’s still time to get tools and ink. Now you know the deal with the link below, so use it and save 10%.

Happy Monday my sweet dumplings super pumped to be here with you. Sound the saluting trumpets and drums. Why? Simple, the Online Extravaganza continues today.
I know, I know, you want Miss Hammie to tell you what’s included in the list of goodies today. Well, today you still get a 10% savings on selected stamps and kits from the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog. Need a bigger reminder?
Is that big enough? As in previous days I’m adding a direct path to what’s available via my online store.

Hello my dumplings, this is going to be a quickie. Miss Hammie told you that this event, ( insert trumpets and drums here) the
I wish I knew how to make that blink, oh well. It actually consists of three sales and today and tomorrow is the second sale. Miss Hammie certainly hopes that you’re not confused because there are great items to get at a 10% savings.
On either Friday or Saturday you should have purchased some lovely dsp’s with coordinating cardstock and embellishments. Now it’s time to pick the perfect stamp sets to turn those images in your mind into beautiful craft items to share with your family and friends. What? You don’t have any ideas, don’t fret my sweet Stampin’ Up has got you covered. What if all the coordinating materials came together with directions and all you had to do was put it together? Would that be something the creative side of you is asking for? Then one of Stampin’ Up’s kits with a coordinating stamp set is what you need. And guess what? Not only are stamp sets available at a 10% savings, but so are selected kits. I’m throwing that selected in there because as I told you nearly all, not all items in the Annual catalog are part of this Extravaganza.
I’m adding a link that will take you directly to the page that shows what’s available via my online store. Don’t miss an opportunity to get these products at a 10% savings.
Smooches my dumplings, now get shopping!

Well my sweet dumplings it’s Day #2 of the first sale in Stampin’ Up’s Online Extravaganza. I don’t know where to begin there are so many beautiful Designer Series Papers, dsp’s to me, in the Annual catalog. Here’s my advice look at all the designs that are available and pick the ones that speak to you. There are cardstocks that coordinate beautifully with all our dsp’s. There are also coordinating embellishments. Can you see the direction Miss Hammie has laid out for you? Once you get your beautiful paper, cardstock and embellishments all you’ll need for the perfect project will be the perfect stamp set. Spoiler alert, spoiler alert: Remember Miss Hammie said nearly every item in the Annual catalog would be on sale for 10% off the regular price? Well, there are stamp sets in the catalog, I’m just saying.
For today and tomorrow let’s concentrate on getting stocked up on paper and embellishments. Use the link below to go directly to the items that are on sale today and tomorrow. Hugs and smooches, TTFN

Hello my sweet dumplings as I explained in my hastily added post yesterday Stampin’ Up is having a (insert trumpet salute here) Three Day Online Extravaganza. Selected items in three groups, Paper & Embellishments; Stamps & Kits; and Tools and Ink will be available at 10% off. It’s like getting free shipping, cost wise. Over the three days nearly every item in the Annual catalog will be on sale for 10% off its regular price. Sweetnesses remember that Miss Hammie said nearly, so there will be some exclusions. I told you it was an extravaganza and to me 10% off nearly all the items is an extravaganza. I’m listing a direct link to the items being sold today via my online store. This the day to pick up that paper or those embellishments you wanted for those cards or the pages of those memory books you making as gifts. My suggestions for simple traditional holiday cards would be Whisper White, Garden Green and Real Red or Cherry Cobbler cardstock. When ordering paper the question is always “How much should I order?”. Remember you can make two standard size (51/2 in. X 41/4in.) from one piece of cardstock. Don’t forget a roll of coordinating ribbon or some other embellishment. It never hurts to add a little sparkle.

Hello my dumplings this news is TOO BIG not to share and because Miss Hammie has been very very neglectful when it comes to this blog I want to make it up to you by sharing some mind blowing deals that Stampin’ Up is offering starting tomorrow. Yes, I know I really should have shared this earlier, but better late than never, right?
SIX DAYS. THREE SALES. ONE SPECTACULAR PROMOTION!
Online Extravaganza will run for six days. During this time, Stampin’ Up will be throwing three, 48-hour sales featuring a selection of products from the 2018–2019 annual catalog—all at 10% off! Each 48-hour sale will feature two product categories (e.g., paper, stamps, ink, etc.). When one sale ends, the next sale begins; this cycle will continue until Online Extravaganza is over. By the end, nearly every item from the annual catalog will have been on sale!
I pulled that snippet straight from the home office. Did you read the line that said “Nearly EVERY ITEM in the Annual catalog will have been on sale”? NEARLY EVERY ITEM PEOPLE. Yes, Miss Hammie is aware she was shouting, this is BIG people. If you have friends who like to craft think Christmas gifts ( at 10% off). Or you want to do a bang up job on that baby book for your 20 year old, no not his child, his baby book. I’m not judging a masterpiece like him deserves a masterpiece to document his accomplishments. Maybe we should call it his memories book. You get the best products and you save 10%. That’s a win win, am I right?
I almost forgot, there’s still time to make those holiday cards you’ve wanted to do for how long now. I know, I know “But Miss Hammie I’m not crafty”. I’m about ready to ask if you wants some cheese and crackers to go along with that . . . , but I digress. I’ll be posting examples and directions for some simple, but beautiful holiday cards. Trust Miss Hammie your 7 year old could make them. In fact make it a family affair and let the kids help. Grammar and Grampa will love them, so will Abuelita and Abuelito.
Below I’m going to post, again straight from the home office, product types and the dates that they’ll be on sale. There will also be a link to my online store.
