Many of my Stampin’ Up! team members (not only those with blogs) share their gorgeous projects in our team’s Facebook community – there’s such amazing and inspiring creativity in this group! I’m always excited when my team’s blog hop rolls around, though, because I get to share some of their amazing work with you. I’m just as excited to see their projects as you are, and I am proud to share them with you.
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. 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.
Make an Impressions with Garden Impressions
It’s no secret that I love Designer Series Papers – there’s no easier way to build a foundation for a beautiful card than with a gorgeous patterned paper with an appealing color palette. For today’s project, I pulled inspiration from a page of the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I gotta feeling this is going to be a popular pack of paper! Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Garden Impressions. The Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack is filled with gorgeous, abstract images of flower and beautiful patterns. The colors in this stack are vibrant and uplifting with touches of oranges, yellows, pinks, blues and greens. Cards can be so simple when something this beautiful supports the focal point. Here’s a look at the gorgeous colors and patterns in this stack of papers:
- Delightfully Detailed. The focal point of this card is the sweet sentiment from Detailed with Love and the stitched shapes (the sentiment is cropped with one of the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies and accented with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies). Here’s a closer look at the sweet sentiment: I’ve included links to these new products at the base of my post. I hope you’ll take a look before hopping to the next blog (or come back after you’ve finished the hop).
- Color Combination. Designer Series Papers are often the starting point for a great color combination. I LOVE the combination of Night of Navy, Mango Medley and So Saffron in this pattern. While the leaves and stems are not identified as Gray Granite, they are a close match – and I wanted to give Gray Granite a whirl. If you like this combination of So Saffron, Gray Granite and Night of Navy as much as I do, please save this:
