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 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 jam-packed 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.
When I think of sunshine, I think of…wait for it…wait for it…yellow. Brilliant, huh? The new Pineapple Punch, a 2018-2020 In Color, is packed with an amazing concentration of sunshine. That’s why I reached for three Pineapple Punch products to create this card for today’s blog hop:
- Bouquet Blooms & Dandelion Wishes. My card features two new stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – the circular burst is from Bouquet Blooms, and the sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes. Both are wonderful. I stamped the circular burst with Pineapple Punch ink. The stamp set includes photopolymer stamps, so they are easy to line up and stamp down. Here’s a look at the Bouquet Blooms stamp set (while it’s offered as a bundle, I only used the stamp here): I stamped the sentiment with black ink on Pineapple Punch cardstock, punched it out with my 2″ Circle punch and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at the Dandelion Wishes stamp set:
- A Stitched Detail. I mounted my Whisper White panel on a Night of Navy frame, leaving a little more blue on the left side. Before gluing down the white panel, I added a cross-stitched border with one of the edgelits dies from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies (it’s the one on the bottom, right of this picture): The edgelits die adds a unique element to this simple card – I simply ran it through my Big Shot with the Magnetic Platform, cutting plate, cardstock, die, and another cutting plate (similar to a Framelit). I imagine it’s supposed to be used with the Precision Base Plate, but I didn’t want to reach for mine (LAZY) and gave this a try. Worked like a gem! Here’s a look at the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies:
- Tall & Thin. I wanted to make a card with a unique shape for this uplifting burst of sunshine, so I trimmed off the edges to make a tall, thin card. The card base is 3-3/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. It’s not THAT different, but it’s different enough. 🙂 I love this shape because it can still fit in a standard envelope, but it’s a new look.
