Thoughtful Branches Royal Pick of the Week!

I used the Thoughtful Branches Bundle to create a simple sympathy card for my card class last Sunday. We all need to have sympathy cards on hand when the need arises.

I am thrilled that my card was chosen as the pick of the week on my team’s Facebook page!

InKing Royalty August Blog Hop Cookie Cutter Halloween

Fall Forward - August 2016 (1)

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have been actively ordering from the 2016 Holiday Catalog – before it opens to customers on September 1.  We are excited to share some of our new goodies with you today!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the Fall months – Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I am so excited about fall, and can’t wait to share some new Stampin Up! Holiday products!  I love Halloween colors, stamps and other new products. Here is my project:

20160823_192357-01 (1)


I stamped the cute little mummy (from Cookie Cutter Halloween 142255) in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock. I punched him out easily with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch 140396. I added retired googlie eyes and a heart from the new Pumpkin Pie Glitter Paper 142029.

My card base is Pear Pizzazz 131201, layered with Tangerine Tango 111349 and Basic Gray 121044. The layers were torn and distressed with Basic Gray Ink. Details from Ghoulish Grunge 142241 were stamped on the Basic Gray and on the base card. I used the new Halloween Night Baker’s Twine 142027 and “Happy Halloween” from Jar of Haunts 142247 was also stamped in Basic Gray.
