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 April Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPRING. Spring is a special time of year – it’s fun to celebrate the beauty of nature during this transition of the seasons. 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.
To a Wild Rose
Nothing says “SPRING” like big, beautiful flowers and bold, bright colors. My Spring-themed card features a sneak peek at the To a Wild Rose bundle and a sentiment from the Free as a Bird stamp set. Along with the mix of bright colors, this card has “SPRING” written all over it. Here’s my card:
- Sneak Peeks. Those of us who attended Stampin’ Up! OnStage events earlier this month have been able to pre-order select items from the upcoming 2019 Annual Catalog. My card features two stamp sets that are sure to huge successes – go ahead and put these on your wish list today. Here’s a look at the To a Wild Rose stamp set (Mary Ellen Byler’s $1 Million Sales Achiever stamp set): The set coordinates with the Wild Rose Dies (#149547) and is sold as a bundle for a 10% savings – here’s a look at the dies with the stamp set:I cropped the stitched background element and leaves with the Wild Rose Dies. I used a Stitched Shapes Dies oval to crop my sentiment and bordered it with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies – here’s a closer look:The sentiment is from Free as a Bird. The Free as a Bird Bundle (#151123) includes the Free as a Bird stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Here’s a look at the stamp set:
- Beautiful Background. Since the catalog has not been published for all the world to see, you might think that my Flirty Flamingo background of white flowers is a piece of Designer Series Paper. It’s not. I stamped these flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the blank space with a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker. I left a little of the center uncolored to show you how I’d colored it:
- Spring Colors. This card started as a simple background that mixed Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana. I needed something more, though, so I stamped and colored the leaves. That gave me just the pop of color I was looking for (on an already-filled-with-color card). If you like this combination of Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Call Me Clover, please save this:
