Country Floral Lane for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

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.

January 2022 InKing Royalty Blog HopWelcome to InKing Royalty’s January 2023 Blog Hop! If your craft projects aren’t already filled with hearts, then you might be behind the eight ball. No worries – we are here to help. We are excited to share our heart-filled creations with you 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.

Country Floral Lane

I’m going to share a secret I’ve never, never said before … sometimes a beautiful mix of Designer Series Papers is all you need to build a gorgeous card. I selected three patterns from Stampin’ Up!’s Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper (each pattern is filled with sweet hearts) to create the card I’m sharing with you today. Here’s my card for today’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop:

Framed Florets, Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian King, Valentine's Day card

All three of the panels on my card are pulled from the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in this love-themed pack of papers:

Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, 160375While I chose to work with the Petal Pink patterns in the pack of papers (say that five times fast!), I could have just as easily created the same card with Balmy Blue pages or the Sweet Sorbet pages. This is such a great pack of papers!

Here’s something else I’ve never, never said before: When I set out to make a simple card with just a few layers, I never dreamed I’d end up with TEN layers of cardstock. The panels looked great, but I wanted to see how they’d look with a little frame around them, and so the layers began to stack up.

The sentiment on my card is pulled from the new Framed Florets stamp set in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. If it looks familiar, that’s because the stamp set was an early release stamp set last year. Here’s a look at this must-have Framed Florets Bundle:

I’ll share more about this paper and this card tomorrow – I hope you’ll come back!
