Royal Blog Tour

Welcome to my humble castle. I'm so excited to to show you my projects and hope you enjoy them 'royally' . Please don't leave without entering your name and email address for my Royal Blog Candy. Enjoy the Tour!! :)

All my projects on this tour will feature the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.

This first project uses the Thoughts and Prayers images from Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio. I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy making digital cards, but they are so quick to make and so easy to share.

One of the great things about using a digital program, I can sew much straighter with MDS than I can in real life! Plus by the time I remember to send the Get Well Card using snail mail, the recipient is already well. With My Digital Studio technology is grand! LOL




My second project is a little deskset. I love to have a pretty little set on my desk so I can drop a quick note to someone that needs a some encouragement and support. Don't these colors scream spring?

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers

Cardstock: Rose Red, Whisper White, Soft Suede

DSP: Thoroughly Modern

Ink: Soft Suede

Accessories: Large and Scallop Oval Punches, Bone Folder, Eyelet Border Punch, Pretties Kit, Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon


This third card is the favorite at my house. I found a wonderful tutorial by Dawn Griffith for the plastic bag double slider and knew it was just the thing for a masculine card. I know that my husband loves the interactive cards.



Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers, Sanded

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip

Stampin' Write Markers: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke

Accessories: Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Choclate Chip Corduroy Button, jumbo eyelet, linen thread


My last project features the BRAND NEW SU! Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder available in the Summer Mini Catalog May 1st. I couldn't resist giving you a royal preview of this beautiful background. Isn't it amazing how a plain piece of cardstock can be turned into something this gorgeous with a Big Shot and a embossing folder?!




Card & Box Recipe:


Stamps: Great Friend (For You sentiment), Thoughts and Prayers


Cardstock: Coral Cameo (retiring color), Old Olive, Whisper White, Kraft


Ink: Old Olive


Stampin' Write Markers: Old Olive, Coral Cameo, Barely Banana (mixed w/ Coral Cameo to make the lighter flowers)

Accessories: Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Button, Twine, Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder (available 5/1), Bitty Box die



ROYAL BLOG CANDY-
Does receiving a gift make you feel a little like royalty? Well, I know it does me. :) When the Royal Blog Tour ends on May 3rd and I surrender my tiara--a little feeling of royalty can be passed on to you.....
