Welcome to the very first InKing Royalty Blog Hop. For our very first hop, we’re excited to share projects that showcase the fun on the holidays – from Halloween through Christmas, this certainly is the season to be jolly!
You may have started the Blog Hop here or may have hopped over from Katie Ferguson at Cottage Paper. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next. If you get off track at any point during the blog hop, there’s a complete list of participants at the end of this post.
Before I share my post, I want to say that I’m so proud of my group – InKing Royalty is the name of my Stampin’ Up! team – demonstrators from all over the U.S. For this hop, I’ve also invited Pam Morris (my upline), Mary Fish (her upline) and Lisa Pretto (her upline) to join us. We’re such a close group, so we all know one another well. I’m so happy they were able to join in. Now, back to the hop…
Get Your Santa On
I’ve been fascinated by the dancing Santas in the Santa & Co. photopolymer stamp set from the very start. Wasn’t always in love with them but always fascinated. While I was studying these dancing Santas, I wondered if they would stack on one another – could I create a stack of perfectly-balanced Santas? I’m not one to sit around wondering, so I put my thoughts to the test. By finding the balance in each image (that place where the weight of each Santa is perfectly aligned), I was able to create a 6″+ stack of Santas. Yippee!
But, what do you do with a 6″+ tall pile of Santas? They are really too tall to really put on the front of a card, yet they are too adorable to not share with others. After a little pondering, I turned my Santas into a festive door hanger:I colored these jolly men with Blendabilities and cropped the sentiment with my Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. The base of this hanger is 4″ wide x 11″ tall. I cropped the hanger circle with a 2-1/2″ Circle punch. The panel of Santas is 2-1/2″ wide x 6″ tall.
Stamp Sets: Visions of Santa, Get Your Santa On Papers: Real Red, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Whisper White Inks: Real Red, Blendabilities (Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Nude, Color Lifter) Accessories: 2-1/2″ Circle punch, Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals
