InKing Royalty September Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! We are excited to share some super-fun creations with you today! This month’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the spookiest time of year – Halloween. 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.

Let me start by saying, I can’t believe people get paid for having this much fun! I am so excited about this card. My Grands are going to love it.

Imagine this: it is Halloween, you are walking in a beautiful meadow, and find this harmless looking jar:


However, when you look inside the jar, here is what you find:


It’s terrifying!

No, it is a “Magic Slider Card”, and here is an amazing Stampin Up! Video to show you how I made it.

Late Summer “Garden in Bloom”

Today I wanted to to celebrate the approaching end of Summer by creating a card using rich colors. Garden in Bloom (139433) features the two-step stamping technique. It gives a beautiful effect, but I need more practice! Here is my card:

Card stocks used include Whisper White (100730), Peekaboo Peach (141417), and Rich Razzleberry (115316).

The white panel is stamped with the following inks: Elegant Eggplant (126969), Rose Red (126954), Rich Razzleberry (126950), Peekaboo Peach (141398), and Garden Green (126973). Crumb Cake ink (126975) is lightly sponged over the Whisper White card stock layer.

The twine is Garden Green from the new holiday catalog three pack of colors (141999)

Thanks for joining me today!
