Welcome to the Royal Blog Tour

 
Welcome to the Royal Blog tour one of my favorite ways to spend an evening is perusing great blogs. Well hop along for the opportunity to see some amazing work by some amazing women!  My castle has work using the pocjet shiloettes stamp set. and I woul  like to you share with you some of my designs using that  stamp set.
First card up is a variation of  a card you saw earlier on my blog and is again inspired by my stamping friend Jan  Rienhardt. I saw a card that she made with the sunset a while back and had to case it. Here is my version.


Supplies
Ink - Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Old Olive
Paper-More Mustard DSP, Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Stamps- Pocket Silhouettes, Flight of the Butterfly, Autumn days
Accessories- Butterfly Sizzlet


The next card up reminds me of the grasses on the beach on the outer banks of North Carolina. this card uses masking and of course Pocket Silhouettes

 
The next card is an easel card again using brayering and layering I love Easel cards because the person that gets the card can display it!
Supplies
Ink - Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Paper-Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, versa mark
Stamps- Pocket Silhouettes
Punches -  1 3/4  Circle
Accessories- Brayer, Clear embossing powder

Supplies
Ink - Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie
Paper-More Mustard DSP, Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Stamps- Pocket Silhouettes
Punches - Designer label, 1 Circle, word window, scallop
Accessories- Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon, Brayer, Clear embossing powder


I had a bit of leftover brayerd samples and decided to make a book mark with it I used my Petals Sizzix die and owe this idea to another friend Marilyn Schlueter, I truly amazes me how paper crafters are so wonderful and share all their great ideas.


Supplies
Ink - Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, versa mark
Paper-Pumpkin Pie DSP, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Stamps- Pocket Silhouettes
Accessories- Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon, Brayer, Clear embossing powder

next project is my May project for my stamp clubs. It features a carry all to hold your cards and envelopes. I also love the the card it is so clean and simple! I will be sending this to my mom for mothers day.


Supplies
Ink - Brocade Blue
Paper-Bella Blue DSP, Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla

Last up is my artsiest one! I absolutely love our new Smooch Spritz that will be available May 1st! I used several different techniques for this card. Including masking and over spraying I was so inspired by the Smooch Spritz  that I even made my own using Alcohol and craft Cameo Coral re-inker!

Supplies
Ink Cameo Coral, Soft Suede
Paper Cameo Coral, Soft Suede, Whisper White
