Inking Royalty: I Think I Love You Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop!

This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs – the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed 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.

Stampin'Up! Petal Palette stamp set, Ceelbrate You thinlits, Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, Valentine, DIY, papercrafting

Details:

  • The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock.I adore this cardstock as a base. The trick is to lightly score the cardstock before folding for a crisp clean line.
  • The top layer of Whisper White measures 3 3/4 x 5″. It like this bolder border (say that 3x fast!!) for a simple card layout.
  • I created a negative image using the Celebrate You thinlits from the Stampin’Up! SaleABration Catalog. These are free with a $100 purchase and are my favorite offering this year. I made a light line with a pencil to help me line up the images. Another little tip? By placing them in the bottom corner I don’t have to worry about centering the sentiments vertically. Make sure to keep the middle of the O and adhere with a mini dimensional.
  • The striking Painted with Love Specialty Designer peeks thru the negative space and is just perfect! The gold foil on this paper is always so hard to photograph, but in person? Oo-la-la
  • I added a little banner on the left side showcasing our Gold Glimmer Paper, Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon and a sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set inked in Melon Mambo.
  • Loads of dimensionals give it some pop.

Valentines for The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

I remember when the kiddos were little and we made dozens and dozens of Valentines for their school mates, family and our neighbors. In the past couple of years I haven’t done a lot of Valentine cards aside those for my fella, my parents, and to stick in goodie boxes to send to the college kids.

I have decided to up my Valentine game this year and have a list of people I want to be sure know how special they are to me. I’m not going to ruin the surprise by telling you who, but lets just say I have a lot of crafting coming up in the next few weeks.

I think this card will be perfect for mass producing AND making the recipient feel special.

Stampin'Up! Sure Do Love You bundle, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Valentine, DIY, Papaercraft, Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, clean and simple, CAS, card layout

Details:

  • The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White cardstock. i adore this cardstock for the base as it is really nice and sturdy. I scored it at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ for a nice crisp fold line.
  • The Whisper White Cardstock layer measures 3 3/4 x 5″ creating a nice wide border. This card is pretty simple in design and that wider border helps create a little more visual interest.
  • The Pink Pirouette layer is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″ and the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is 3 x 3. Can we have a moment for that beautiful paper? The gold that runs thru it gives it a lovely rich feel, worthy of a card that says “I Love You”.
  • Both the heart and the sentiment are from the Sure Do Love You stamp set and are cropped out using the Lots to Love Box Framelits. These come as a bundle and when purchased together saves you 10% #winning
  • I added a little gold foil doily and a wrap of Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon

Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop

I hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday season! I am always excited for the New Year, I love the idea of fresh beginnings! And when the New Year also means the kick off of Stampin’Up! SaleABration, well, it doesn’t get much better than that!

I am so excited to share my project with you today. It combines a couple of my very favorite SaleABration items and turned out super adorable!

And don’t forget, we have an exciting new twist to our SaleABration!

so how about that card?!

Stampin'Up! Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You thinlits, Party Pandas stamp set, SaleABration. Get all of these items for free with a qualifying purchase, papercrafts, DIY, I made this

I told you it was CUTE!

Details:

  • The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White cardstock which makes such a perfect base for a card. It is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. The scoring makes a huge difference in getting a crisp and clean fold line.
  • The top layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/4″
  • The focal point of the card is that fun Panda from the SaleAbration stamp set Party Pandas, free with a minimum $50 order. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cropped him out using the 2″ circle punch. I added the little sentiment on the sign, also from the Party Pandas stamp set and stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist
  • The panda is layered on a 3×3 piece from the Tutti Frutti 6×6 Designer series Paper Stack. This is a new paper stack found in the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. It has some really fun fruit designs on one side and then a graphic design like the one I used on the other. I  love that because it makes it super versatile!
  • The designer paper is layered on a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″ piece of Berry Burst Cardstock. And tied with a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.
  • The cropped out words are from the Amazing You stamp set, also a SaleABration stamp set and free with a $50 purchase. I popped them up with dimensionals to help them stand out.
  • How awesome is that “awesome”? As a word girl I always fall in love with our word thinlits. This one is from the Celebrate You thinlits die and is one of the free items you can choose with a $100 order during SaleABration. I used my fine tipped glue pen to adhere it to the card front.
  • The last embellishment I added were the Tutti Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins in Berry Burst. And yes, you read that right! They come with there own adhesive on the back making them so simple to use! They come in a set with 50 each of Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

Sneak Peek for the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Today on the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop we are sharing fun sneak peeks from the Occasions Catalog. This catalog is chock full of fun bright images that will make you smile!

I am sharing the stamp set Amazing Congratulations today. It has a world of potential and fun in how it can be used, but I opted for a really simply look

Stampin'Up! amazing Congratulations stamp set, Occasions Catalog, sneak peek, DIY, papercrafting

Details:

The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. The next layer is Whisper White cut to 4 x 5 1/4″

I used the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder at an angle to create a little bit of visual interest in the top Whisper White layer

The “congratulations” is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White. I colored it in using the Pool Party Stampin Blends

Stampin'Up! amazing Congratulations stamp set, Stampin' Blends, Occasions Catalog, sneak peek, DIY, papercrafting

The bottom sentiment, also from the Amazing Congratulations stamp set, is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.

Both of my embellishments are from the fun Tutti Frutti Suite also found in the Occasions Catalog. The sequins are a dream come true as they are ADHESIVE BACKED making them so easy and mess free to work with. The Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Striped Ribbon ties so beautifully.

Give Thanks – Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for October 2017. This month our theme is Give Thanks!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog –  Lisa Pretto @ InkBig Academy Stamps or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

 

So this month we are focused on the theme of “Give Thanks”, and there are few things I am as grateful for as my fellow demonstrators. These people have become my family and even if we only get to see each other a couple times a year, they hold a very special place in my heart.

One of the upsides of being a demonstrator is that you receive a lot of happy mail, which is a pretty awesome perk!

Here are some of the cards I have gotten in the last few weeks. I hope they inspire not only to create, but to send cards to the people you care about.

 

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog –Lisa Pretto @ InkBig Academy Stamps, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
