Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPOOKY. WithHalloween just around the corner, we are excited to share our spooky, fun projects with our neighbors, coworkers and family – and we’re 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, it is time for another Blog Hop. I have a question, can I share a secret with you? I would be willing to bet that everyone that comes to visit my  blog during this Blog Hop has great stories to tell about Halloween when they were children. Here’s my secret, I don’t have any great Halloween tales to tell because believe or not I can not remember one Halloween when I was a child that I didn’t get sick a day or two before Halloween and could not go Trick or Treating with my older sister. She would always ask for extra candy for her “baby” sister who was at home sick. Now before you think how sweet and considerate, she would give me one candy bar and keep the rest for herself. But enough about my unfortunate Halloween memories and on to my idea of spooky. I’ll confess my family isn’t big on Halloween, never has been. Our neighborhood organization holds an event each year that I donate treats to. So when I turn out the lights and pretend I’m not home my conscience is clear. That being said the Halloween stamp sets aren’t high on my list of “must haves” which made this month’s blog hop a wee bit of a challenge. I wracked my brain to come up with something “Spooky”. I decided to go with traditional Halloween symbols that corresponded to current items that I had and came up with this card.

EA459432-D1D3-4032-8835-532687C6DD0A

I used three colors of card stock, Basic Black, Smokey Slate and Whisper White. My card base was made with Basic Black that I layered with the Smokey Slate and Whisper White. I used Whisper White card stock and my 2 inch circle punch to create the “spooky” crescent moon and the cat punch to create the cat that you see against the moon. I created a “window” for the cat to sit in and look at the crescent moon using the Rectangle Stitched dies.

Another tool that I used was the new Stampin’ Trimmer (I LOVE it and suggest strongly that you purchase it). I also used TomBow liquid glue and black dimensionals.

I’m really pleased with how it cam e together and I hope that you like it too. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

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

AUTUMN InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around AUTUMN. There is so much to love about the transition from summer to winter, and we are excited to share our Autumn-themed projects 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 Miss Hammie has a confession to make, I haven’t been doing a lot of crafting lately. I’ve been exploring some new outlets like gardening. I have always felt like gardening and I just didn’t get along. There are bugs and other yucky type things that I don’t particularly care for. However I decided to give it one more try and I am actually enjoying it. I haven’t been particularly successful, but it has been fun. However I decided it was time to get back to crafting which is honestly my first love. That’s not quite true, music is my first love, but when you sing like a cat backed into a corner you tend to settle for listening to music rather than trying to make it. As you all know the Blog Hops this year have centered around a word. This months word is AUTUMN. I have to be honest I don’t really think autumn when its 95 degrees, but We are going to make this work.

For my project I went with the stamp set that I always think of when I hear the words Fall or Autumn. While its not one of our newer stamp set for me Painted Harvest is the epitome of autumn.  It is on page 128 of the Stampin Up Annual catalog. The Designers Series Paper I chose was from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. It is on page 167 of the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog.  I think this card is saying autumn and I hope you feel that way too.

F408828A-9BC9-49E6-BCE0-5A69821ED392

Here’s how I put it together:

I used Old Olive card stock to make my card base. It measures 51/2 in. x 41/4 in. I layered a piece of Crushed Curry card stock that measures 51/4in. x 4in. onto my Old Olive card base. My next layer was the Mosaic Mood dsp, it measures 5in. x 33/4 in. The final layer is Whisper White card stock and it measures 43/4in. x 31/2in. I stamped my image and sentiment on the Whisper White card stock.

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

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.

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.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. What fun! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The new catalog is so amazing I have to admit it was a tad difficult for me to decide exactly what to stamp set to use. I finally decided on the Rooted in Nature stamp set for the sentiment on the front of my card. The card base was made from Old Olive and I layered it with dsp from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. I have to admit I couldn’t find my Rich Razzleberry ink pad so I used my Stampin’ Write marker to ink up my stamp. I toyed with the idea of using Tranquil Tide in fact I even stamped it and used my Big Shot to cut it out, but the Rich Razzleberry just worked better.  Then I used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and my Big Shot to cut out the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment on Petal Pink cardstock. Petal Pink is one of our new colors that will be available June 1st. I embellished the front with a piece of 1/4 inch Velvet ribbon in Rich Razzleberry and two small pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls pack.

Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler

InKing Royalty Blog Hop - Let the Good Times Roll

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! This year’s hops are themed around some of our favorite songs. Today’s hop is pulls inspiration from B.B. King’s song “Let the Good Times Roll.” How fun is that?! We’ve created projects that either feature images with wheels (cards, wagons, bikes) or celebrate good times. We are excited to share our projects with you. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

So welcome to a Whirlwind Wednesday my sweet dumplings, now it’s confession time. I’ve only ever been to New Orleans once and never during Mardi Gras, but it was exactly what first came to mind when I heard the theme of the Blog Hop. And while it might sort of dictate color choices if I chose to go that way, it didn’t give me an idea of what type of image. So I was at that “Oh what have I gotten myself into” stage I seem to always visit when I agree to be part of the team Blog Hop. Then the Miss Hammie in me said “Just do it your way” .  So to me this translates to “Let the Good Times Roll”.  Good times translate to lightheartedness and fun.  I’m really happy with it and I think that you’ll be as well.

9B39F35A-3D47-4D1B-86E0-026BCC28A56A

I used a little bit of everything for this card. I used the stamp sets Bike Ride, and Yay You which are available now and Pick a Pennant which will be available on June 1st. The card base is Real Red cardstock that I layered with dsp from the Tutti-Frutti dsp pack. I stamped on Whisper White card that I brayered with Pool Party ink. I used an Old Olive Stampin’ Write marker to create a grassy field for the bike.

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