Full of Happiness for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. Hop, hop! This month’s projects celebrate Easter, so prepare yourself for a variety of gorgeous, Easter-themed projects. 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.

My project for today’s blog hop features the Full of Happiness stamp set!

I just couldn’t resist this adorable chick! And I love how the Dino Dies coordinate with this set to cut out the cracked egg! I chose Purple Posy for the background of this card, but a subtle pink, blue, or yellow would work!

He needed a little bow & some bling, don’t ya think? I love the texture on him – amazing results with our photopolymer stamps! I added a little more texture with the stamped-off Smoky Slate dots on the egg and the Subtle 3D Embossing on the Purple Posy background. Fun, fun!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp with Brian. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Ornate Garden Sneak Peek!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today’s project is a sneak peek at some beautiful products from the Ornate Garden Product Suite!

This Suite will be available for customers in an Early Release starting April 1, 2020! Items from this suite can also be added to a Starter Kit now – an amazing perk for demonstrators and new demonstrators!

For this project, I am showcasing the Ornate Thanks Bundle paired with the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack, and the Gilded Gems (just under the bow).

The Ornate Thanks stamp set comes with SO MANY sentiments! And it’s photopolymer, so it’s easy to build sentiments and stamp right where you want to.

Is that intricate border to “die” for, or what (pun intended)? Totally drool-worthy! Don’t worry, you’ll be seeing more of this Product Suite from me!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today! A quick note – my kiddos are home from school for the unforeseeable future, so I’m wearing many hats! I’ve added “home-school teacher” to the list while I navigate my full-time job during the day and Stampin’ Up! business at night. So, please be patient with me as my email responses may be even more delayed than they already are! But, never fear, I’m still here and will respond when I am able to! Thank you for your understanding. Have a wonderful & blessed day and stay healthy!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Mint Macaron card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded in half at 5-1/2″
  • So Saffron layer – 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″

Opportunity Night Replay!

On Friday evening, I had a live-broadcasted Opportunity Night over on my Facebook Page and thought I’d share the replay video with you in case you missed it or you’re not on Facebook! Without further ado, here’s the recording:

Here’s a recap of the up to $280 worth of goodies you’ll receive with the Starter Kit during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31):

  • Up to $125 in product of your choice
  • Any stamp set of your choice (up to $45 value)
  • 48-sheet 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper sampler pack ($11.50 value)
  • Mini Paper Cutter ($26.50 value)
  • Standard Business Supplies Pack ($50 value)
  • Paper Pumpkin Kit ($22 value)

Plus, the Starter Kit SHIPS FOR FREE, which is typically 10% of your order. So, if you ordered everything above, you’d pay up to $28 in shipping!

And here are my Top 10 Reasons it’s the BEST DECISION EVER:

  1. Ultimate Bundle – For $99 (plus free shipping!) you get up to $208 worth of product of your choice during Sale-A-Bration. It’s a no-brainer!
  2. Discount – You’ll receive 20% off all purchases as a demonstrator (or 20% commission on sales)!
  3. Test Drive – You get to test-drive being a demonstrator through the next full quarter plus an additional month, so if you sign up today, that means through July 31, 2020 without doing another thing!
  4. Zero Obligation – There is no obligation to stay active and no penalty to drop. If you don’t meet the quarterly minimum of $300 in purchases or sales, you simply just become inactive after July 31, 2020.
  5. No Selling Required – You don’t need to teach classes, hold workshops, have a blog, or anything like that. You get to do you in your own creative world. 95% of demonstrators are hobbyists – we all signed up for the discount! For the first 5 years I was a demonstrator, I just ordered what I wanted and enjoyed creating with it.
  6. Color & Product Coordination – Stampin’ Up!’s colors are second to none and all of their products coordinate. So you know that you can match your paper to your ink to your embellishments. It takes the guesswork out of creating, which, for this working-mom-of-two, is essential!
  7. One-Stop Shop – Stampin’ Up! offers everything you need to create (well, except for chocolate!) and it gets delivered to your doorstep.
  8. See It First – You get to see catalogs first and pre-order products before they become available to everyone else!
  9. Community – The teams I am part of and the Facebook groups I belong to are such a source of inspiration and encouragement! And the in-person events are uplifting and energizing. Think about it – you’re in a room full of people who love to brighten others’ lives and make a difference in this world with their handmade paper crafts. It’s a beautiful thing.
  10. Friendships – My fellow demonstrators and customers have truly become my family and are such a light in my life! They are the sweetest, most thoughtful people and my life is better because of each and every one of them.

Let me know if you have any questions! Remember, this Starter Kit Special is only available through March 31! Click the button below if you’d like to purchase the Starter Kit today! Have a wonderful & blessed day!

Easter/Spring Lidded Milk Carton

By popular demand, today’s project is a larger version of the Lidded Milk Carton I shared previously!

Here’s another angle:

I sized it to fit a 1.6oz Easter egg that I found at my local Target store:

Here’s what it looks like with the lid off:

So many of you asked me to make a larger version, so I hope you like it! I love the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper for a Spring project! Especially paired with Pool Party! And the sentiment from Timeless Tulips couldn’t be more perfect! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

Easter Promise

Today’s project features the Easter Promise stamp set!

This is a great Easter set with beautiful fonts, inside/outside sentiments, and floral/cross images. It’s a great set to add to your stash for its’ simplicity, but also for it’s versatility dependent on how you color the flowers and which elements you choose to add to your project!

For this card, I opted to keep it simple by stamping both the sentiment and the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I quickly colored in the flowers with Dark Daffodil Delight, Light/Dark Purple Posy, and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. And you know me, because I don’t enjoy fussy cutting, I used my trusty Brother ScanNCut CM350 to cut out the flowers, crocuses I believe!

For a little bit of texture on an otherwise simple card, I used my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder on the Purple Posy/sentiment layer – the perfect touch paired with a trio of pearls!

You’re The Best, Well Dressed!

This could be either a Thank You or a Father’s Day card! I paired these great stamps with a backdrop from the Country Club Designer Series Paper!

I know you will ask… I cut the tie and the word “thanks” using my Brother ScanNCut CM350 (check out my Favorites page for a link) and I fussy-cut the “you’re seriously the best” with my Paper Snips.

Easter Mini Gift Bag

Today’s project is a super easy mini gift bag for Easter!

Here’s another view:

And another:

And here’s a look at how adorable this bunny is from the Welcome Easter stamp set:

How sweet is he?!? Inside this mini gift bag is a Lindt Gold Bunny! They also come in Mini Chicks and Little Lamb – absolutely PERFECT to pair with the Welcome Easter stamp set!! I found these chocolates at Target.

This project is so quick & easy – perfect for making multiples! All you need is a 4″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper! So that means you can get 6 of these out of one sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP.

To make this project go together even faster, I used my Brother ScanNCut CM350 to cut an entire sheet of bunnies! This girl DOES NOT enjoy fussy-cutting, so the ScanNCut is my best friend for cutting multiple stamped images that don’t have coordinating dies!

Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial! I also show you quickly how I use the ScanNCut!

Here’s the template for reference (not to scale):

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Finished Size – 3″H x 1-3/4″W x 1″D

REMIX – Mini Lidded Milk Carton!

Today’s project is a different version of the mini lidded milk carton I shared last week!

It fits a Lindor Truffle perfectly! Here are some additional views:

I love this version with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper paired with Purple Posy cardstock! The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set can be earned for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration! For the floral image behind the sentiment, since Purple Posy ink has been discontinued, I used Highland Heather stamped off!

Here’s my video tutorial:
