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.

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

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,


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).


2 More Days

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%.

And the Sale Goes On

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.

InKing Royalty Blog Hop


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.


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!

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. 


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
