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! Spring is just around the corner, so we are sharing Spring projects with bees and birds. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Hello with Happy Hedgehogs
If you are looking for birds or bees in Stampin’ Up!’s current products, there are many great options. This sweet bird from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set was a standout to me – he’s gifting you a flower for crying out loud! How sweet and thoughtful! ♥ Here’s my card for today’s blog hop:
Happy Hedgehogs is an adorable stamp set that makes two appearances on this card – the super-sweet bird is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Basic White, and the background of flowers are stamped with Polished Pink ink on Polished Pink cardstock. While the Happy Hedgehogs Bundle is still an option in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog, the stand-alone stamp set is quite adorable. Here’s a look:
This card is really sweet, despite its rough edges – or, perhaps, it’s because of the rough edges. Three layers on my card are cropped with the new Deckled Rectangles Dies, one of seventeen stand-alone dies in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog. Not only are the two Polished Pink panels cropped with large Deckled Rectangles Dies, but the Thick Basic White panel with the bird is cropped with one of the smallest dies. I cropped that same die from Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana and added a tiny strip below the Basic White panel.
If you are making a Spring card, you need Spring colors – brilliantly bright or subtly soft. I, obviously, went with the bright tones. If you like this mix of Polished Pink, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
