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.

Framing your creations is a fun way to decorate your space for any holiday.  My panel fits an 8.5 inch square frame but you could make it any size and shape you want.

Can you spot the Detailed Santa’s beard?  HINT:  Steam and fog

The Witches Cauldron is made from the Everyday Jar Framelets.  It is the Wire Hanger and the negative portion formed the body of the cauldron.  Clever , Huh!

I have a couple of the pieces made using the Paisley Dies.  The Witches hat and the Large Ghost were both paisley’s in a former life.

The cats are on a fence fashioned from the house roof die and the little house is haunted for sure.

I have an “eye” for jars.  Ok, pun intended.  Love the eyeballs.  I remember as a kid having a Halloween party where we were blindfolded and had to feel “guts” (cold spaghetti)  and eyeballs (cold peeled grapes) and lots of other yucky stuff.  I think liver was one and it was smelly!!

Try your hand and create something fun for Halloween!  Hugs to all.

Ho Ho Ho Santa’s here

Posted by on Sep 16, 2016 in Christmas, Design Ideas, Techniques | 0 comments

The Detailed Santa’s beard has seen a lot of action this week.  So to end our week I have a card that features Santa himself.  I chose to use the traditional Red,White, and Green Christmas colors with just a touch of light blue.

The Santa is raised with dimensionals.  The height adds shadows and interest to the card front.   For a little more interest I used the decorative dies to make the Peppermint Sticks as accents.   A 1/2″ strip of red was adhered behind the side cut outs that totally finish the Peppermint Stick Look.

The dark green gave the card a finished look.  So using the same green for the  Ho Ho Ho sentiment tied it all together.  The Greetings from Santa stamp set works so well with the Detailed Santa dies.  Snowflakes in Soft Sky added a bit of whimsy.

Hear Santa?

Isn’t this just the cutest card ever!!  So whimsical and fun.

Here’s is one more use for this die.  Make a cute banner for your fireplace, door way, window sill, or party decoration. The cute bow is from the Wreath die set.  I love the versatility of this die set.

I still have some more ideas for you to try- how about rising steam from a witches cauldron,or cute little ducks swimming in a stream, or a frothy milkshake or foamy beer.

I have a challenge for you.  Make a project using this die with one of these ideas above or an idea of your own. Then send it to me [email protected] or [email protected] with the subject as “Santa die challenge”.

I will post all your cute projects on my blog.

Shakespeare who penned this phrase, would have liked this next card.  It has trouble written all over it. A Dark, shadowy and foggy night with a deserted haunted house brimming with Ravens.

Again, it utilizes the Detailed Santa’s beard die.  Fun to make.  There are quite a few Halloween designer paper pieces in my stash to use for this card.  The tombstone print is a perfect background.  The black and white  subtle design made a perfect backdrop for my Haunted House.  The silver edged moon shines upon the flying black bat.

Eerie and spooky night

The Basic Gray swirls represent fog rolling into the neighborhood.  The haunted house was stamped in Elegant Eggplant which is a great Halloween color.  The corner elements added some much needed color.

Night time fog

The silver glimmer paper added a tad bit of needed glitz.  You can almost hear the bat wings flapping in the night.  The card is simple yet so many eye catching elements.

The week in review.  So far we have the detailed Santa’s beard as:
