Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog introduced us to five new In Colors:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  What a beautiful collection of versatile colors!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s favorite new In Color.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Captured Pixie

Flirty Flamingo seemed perfect for this cute little Pixie.  She flew right in and made herself at home.  I used the Smallest of the fairies from the Fairy Celebration stamp set for this card.  The bitty butterfly punch was used for the floating wings.

The pixie dust is floating all around the jar and inside, too.  The fairy was colored directly on the stamp with Stampin’ Write markers and then stamped onto the card stock.  This technique makes it so easy to add colors to the stamped image.

The Jars of Love made a perfect home for our Fairy and notice that the lid is not shut tight so she can fly away anytime she likes.  Here wings are floating on a small piece of window sheet adhered between the black oval and the card front.  So when the card opens her wings take flight.

 

Love the sentiment

My second card also uses the Fairy Celebration.  This image was stamped on vellum and embossed with black embossing powder.  Coloring the image with markers on the back side lets the color show through.

Black and white designer paper from Playful Palette framed this image.  Doesn’t it just pop!  The Flirty Flamingo Mini Bow was the perfect accent

The new catalog is making choosing a favorite suite very difficult.  How do you choose between whimsy and floral, or between pink and playful?  Why not just choose them all?

Here is a look at the Suites offered in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog for 2016-2017.

2016badge-lagoonWe are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are based on “B“ themes such as Birthday, Bride or Baby. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Bride and Groom Together Forever

Bride and Groom Together Forever

June is the traditional month for many weddings.  Garden weddings , lakeside weddings, or beach weddings all with the scent of beautiful spring flowers in the air. My card today is a whimsical wedding card for just such a celebration.  Bride to groom or vice versa either way shows their love and devotion.  The yellow flower in her hair and tie around his neck add a pop of color for interest.

This card was a combination of three stamp sets, three colors and three layers.  I love it when the creation of a project combines multiple elements that work together.

The elephants are from one of the new hostess sets “Love You Lots”  The black and white background paper is from the Playful Palette paper pack.  I love the cute saying “Love You to Pieces” from Sweet Stack stamp set.

So cute

So cute

Did you notice the triple layer, one being just a border, behind the sentiment?  Those were made with the new layering square framelets.  Pretty cool, huh.

Love Flowing

Love Flowing

The heart accent in the sentiment is a great symbol of love, so I added some small hearts in various places on the card and envelope.

On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the “Layering Love” stamp set.  The sentiment was inked in Cherry Cobbler to carry out the color scheme from the card front.  Did you notice the three small hearts on the designer paper?  Don’t you agree that this card oozes with fun?

Perfect sentiment for a wedding

The envelope continues with the color scheme and heart accents.  A small stripe of designer paper was added to the left side and small hearts clustered in the lower right corner.

Coordination envelope-perfect finishing touch

All together I love how it turned out!!  Thanks for stopping by!!
