The Royal Blog Tour Has Ended

The Royal Blog Tour is over and I hope you enjoyed your visit. The links will stay up for awhile so you can go to: http://www.theroyalblogtour.net/ and still see everyone's work if you need more time. I appreciate all who responded with comments. I had over 70 people email me and later today I will use the random generator to pick a number for the winner. I will contact the winner and after that, I will announce who it was and what they won. The people who left comments on my blog will be added to the other comments left and when December 1st rolls around, they will be entered in my monthly blog. Good luck everyone.

Above is a new card I did using the inlaid technique. I glued the snowflakes onto silver cardstock and then ran through the big shot using the lattice embossing folder. I then put a scrunched up real red ribbon on the bottom. I did not want to put any saying on the front. I also put rhinestones on the snowflakes.

Welcome to Racing Towards Creativity Royal Blog Tour

Welcome to my part of the Princess Tour.   I do hope you enjoyed Carol Taggart's Castle. She had some great projects. My name is Jennifer Eby.  I am spotlighting the stamp set called 
"Word Play."
 It is on page 147 of the regular catalog.  If you want to know how and what supplies I used, please email me and I will provide you with the directions. I am also offering Blog Candy. What I am giving away and what you must to do to be in the drawing is at the end of my samples.

I got the idea of the nurse from Kay Sha. I made her into a Candy Striper. She has some really cool owl creations. Otherwise, the rest of the card was my creation.

Sometimes Waiting Is Worthwhile
I just love the idea of the Caterpillars that turn into beautiful butterflies. Now that is so worth the wait. Notice that their antenna are the same through the conversion.

Clowns Make Thee Laugh
Some people think clowns are scary but they are supposed to be funny and make you laugh. Mostly used the bird punch on this one.

Time Gone By
This card needs little explanation. I used the distressing kit on this one.

Dream To Be A Stampin' Up Demo
Need I say more? This is a technique I learned at regionals where your put the finished card in the embossing folder. Gives it a whole new look. Go in the directions of your dreams and become a SU Demo.

Big Birthday Cup Cake with a Cherry on Top
I took the stamp and colored it in with markers so I would not ink the inside of the stamp. I cut it apart and crimped the bottom (paper part) of the cupcake. I watercolored the top and added crystals where the tiny circles were and glittered the cherry. A big cupcake should make you wish big.

For Blog Candy, you must do all three
1. Email me w/subject line "Royal Blog Candy" : jguyeby@verizon.net
2. Pick which card you liked the best: Name of Card
3. Tell me why you like the card.

I will pick a random number from the first to last number of emails received. It will end when the blog tour ends. I will inform you if you win.  You will win a current SU stamp set and some extra SU products.

You may comment below but that will only enter you in my monthly blog candy and not the Royal Blog candy. You may do both for a chance to win twice, but I do need your email if you comment below. I offer very good monthly blog candy, usually a stamp set.

You will next visit the Royal Princess Linda Aarhus. You will love her creations.

Monday, November 1, 2010


Here is a card I made with the new technique called "inlaid" because all the additions to the card look inlaid once you put them through the embossing folder.

I have notified by email, October's winner for the blog candy. As soon as I hear from her, I will announce who it is.
