Inking Royalty Blog Hop "Here Comes the Sun"


Hello crafters!

Welcome to InKing Royalty's June Blog Hop! This year's Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs - this month's song is "Here Comes the Sun." As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. We are 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.

This is the first time I've participated in a blog hop and I'm very excited to share this project with you! For today, I created a positive, fresh and inspiring card; perfect for any special occasion or just to remind someone how wonderful they are and how important they are to you!



I used my new favorite in color "pineapple punch" as the base of my card and layered it with a piece of "wood textures" DSP. I love layering different textures on my project, today I used our simple and beautiful "linen thread" to help me mix my love for wood and rustic style with the bright colors of summer.

Finally, I used "Beautiful You" to stamp the image of a lady dancing, she always reminds me of how beautiful life is, and how we should always be happy and grateful to be part of it. I just adore this stamp set!







Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sheryl Sharp at Sharp Notes by Sheryl. There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group - and you don't want to miss it!

Party favors

Hi Madly Crafters!

For today projects, I decided to share with you the two different favors I made for my daughter's birthday party last week. As you all know, my sweet little girl just turned 5 and she loves Moana, so for her 5th birthday party I decided to throw her a Moana Luau. I had so much fun planning the party, putting it together and celebrating my sweet baby girl. You can see the invitation I created here http://www.madlycrafting.com/2018/04/moana-invitation.html

A few years ago I took the risk and made "strawberry jam", for the very first time, as a party favor for Victoria's baptism. I had no idea people were gonna like it so much so after that day I have always make this jam as one pf the party favors for her birthday parties and people loves it. But what can make a delicious homemade strawberry jam look even better? SU! of course! This year I made a very simple but cute tag for my jam, for this I used the "Label me Pretty" stamp set and the "Pretty Label" punch, remember until May 31st. you can get these two product as a bundle and save 10%.



In addition to the jam, I made these cute mini pineapples!!! I'm sure you have seen these before on the internet. Martha Inchley from "Inch of Creativity" came up with this amazing project and the minute I saw it, I knew I had to make it myself. I mean, look at them ... aren't they just adorable???? I filled these cuties with some lifesavers candy, the kids over them!




You can see the details from Martha's project here http://www.inchofcreativity.com/2018/04/you-asked-i-listened-my-pineapple-treat.html

I couldn't had ask for a most beautiful day to celebrate my sweet little princess. Now I'm done with her party and it's time to start planning my son's party! Its a never-ending story lol


Thanks for stopping by and I will see you next week!

SWEET LITTLE SOMETHING

Hi crafters!

For today's project I wanted to share the sweet, beautiful and loving set "Sweet little something". This is a three step stamp, and I will be honest with you, the first time I got one of these "multi steps stamps" I was terrified because I thought it was going to be so difficult to play with it. Let me tell you, I LOVE THEM!!! they are very easy to stamp with, they align perfectly, and they look so realistic, I feel like I want to hug this little bunny!



I cased the cover of this card from Cathy Caines from "In The Cat Cave", you can see her beautiful work at http://www.inthecatcave.com/2017/11/display03.html. I gave a little twist to Cathy's card and made this a easel card instead. I got the idea from Natalie Lapakko from "Stamp Witch", http://stampwitch.blog/easel-card/.


This is a quick and easy card you can make for welcoming a new baby to this world! I'm sure any mom will be happy to receive this. Hope you like it and hope to see you again next Wednesday!

xoxo,

Moana invitation

HI Crafters!!

For today's project, I'm sharing my daughter's birthday party invitation. Victoria just turned 5 last March but the weather here in Atlanta has been a little crazy this last months, so I decided to wait a little and push her birthday party for April. She is obsessed with Moana and of course wanted a Moana theme party. I figure a Moana Luau would be a great idea, so the crafter in me got to work and created the invitation. Now, if you know me you will know I never make flat invitations. For some reason, invitations have always been something I love to do, I feel like a party invitation give an idea of what the party will be like and what to expect. For this reason, every year I try to create a new way to deliver the party information in a very unique way.

The invitation is shaped as a "drum", if you have seen the movie you know that Moana has to bang the drum in order to get the message from her ancestors. I started by using the amazing "Bundle of Love" designer series paper, this paper is so beautiful and elegant, it can be use for many different occasions. I cut my paper into 7.5 x 4 inches rectangles and with the help of the "gift bag punch board" I punch along the long side to create little tabs for the base of my "drum". I glue this together using the "multipurpose liquid glue" and placed a 1 1/4" very vanilla circle at the bottom.


 I used the large circle in the  "Layering Circle Framelits" to cut a piece of fabric and use it as the top of my drum. Did you know you could cut up to 4/5 pieces of fabric at once? I decorated the top of the drum with some heat transfer vinyl and glue it all together using "tear and tape".


For the inside I just printed the information on a piece of paper and used coffee to color the paper so it looks old. I rolled the paper on a little stick and placed it in the inside. On the other end of the paper (the part going outside) I glued a Q-tip and decorated to look like a drum stick. Then jus added some "Love Mini Tinsel" in gold to decorate the drum and stamp a little tab saying "pull" to add to the drum stick.



I'm very happy on how this invitation turned out and hope you like it too. Can't wait to celebrate my little princess in a few weeks!

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back soon!

THANK YOU WITH PETAL GARDEN

Hi Madly Crafters!!


For today's project I made a simple but beautiful 3 x 3 thanks you card. This are perfect to give to your teachers, your mail person, your UPS guy (I love UPS since it brings me all my SU! goodies! :) or maybe your cashier. You could have this in your purse and have them handy to say "thank you" to someone special.

For this project I used the beautiful "Petal Garden" DSP, the variety of colors and imagine in this paper are gorgeous and perfect for every occasion. I love the combination of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum. I stamp on very vanilla using the "A good day" stamp set and well as the 1 3/8" scallop circle punch. As the final touch I add on of my favorite trims in the annual catalog, the "Very Vanilla 1/2" Trim", it is so elegant and soft... I love it!






I love making 3x3 cards, because they are easy and quick but very beautiful and sweet.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
