Many of my Stampin’ Up! team members (not only those with blogs) share their gorgeous projects in our team’s Facebook community – there’s such amazing and inspiring creativity in this group! I’m always excited when my team’s blog hop rolls around, though, because I get to share some of their amazing work with you. I’m just as excited to see their projects as you are, and I am proud to share them with you.
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPOOKY. With Halloween just around the corner, we are excited to share our spooky, fun projects with our neighbors, coworkers and family – and we’re 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.
I’m also excited to welcome Kelly Kent, my talented friend from Australia to today’s hop. We are so excited she has agreed to join our blog hop today! Australians don’t really “do Halloween” so she had to stretch a bit to make this work. What fun!
My card for the SPOOKY Blog Hop isn’t so much “spooky” as it is “spooktacular” as it showcases fun products from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle and Monster Mash Suite. Such fun to play with spooky products for a simple, fun card. Here’s my card:
- Spooky Elements. My card features a super-fun sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set that’s part of the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. Even if you don’t create projects for Halloween, the Ornate Frames Dies that are part of this suite are a must-have! Here’s a look at the Spooktacular Bash Bundle: “Have a spooktacular Halloween” is such a great sentiment that gave me the perfect perch for my spooky cat. The cat is found in the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set that’s part of the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle. Here’s a look:Here’s a closer look at how the cat stacks so perfectly on the sentiment:
- At an Angle. The background of my card is a fun page right out of a witch’s book of spells with potions, recipes and descriptions of some of the most recognizable Halloween characters. This pack of paper is such fun. Here’s a closer look at the colors and patterns in the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper:The page I selected presents these columns in a nice, neat perpendicular fashion. To give my card a little more drama, I cut the paper at an angle to showcase the paper a little differently. I love to play with Designer Series Papers like this.
- Fun Banner Triple Punch Tip. It’s quite possible you noticed the fun, lopsided banner on my card. The banner anchors the focal square to the side of the card and peeps out from the left side of the square. Here’s a closer look: I discovered this fun look back in 2015 and shared it on my blog back then. At the time, Mom filmed a video to share with my blog readers that proved to be popular. If you’ve not seen it, it’s worth a look-see. If you have seen it, you can reminisce below:
Stamp Sets: Spooktacular Bash, Wonderfully Wicked Papers: Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, Soft Suede, Basic Black, Whisper White Inks: Soft Suede, Tuxedo Black Memento Accessories: Banner Triple Punch, Stitched Shapes Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
