InKing Royalty's Color Me Happy Blog Hop

21 June 2017

I am so EXCITED to be a guest on the InKing Royalty's June 2017 Blog Hop today! The InKing Royalty Team is led by none other than my very talented and special friend, Brian King.

Brian is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Atlanta, Georgia USA and we met back in 2013 at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Truth be told he just couldn't go on stamping unless we were friends and I agreed! Hahaha)

You may have just arrived here from the wonderful Lisa Pretto - love her! After you read my post, please hop over to the next person on the list at the bottom of this post.

The theme for the hop is 'Color Me Happy' and we are getting our inspiration from by Stampin' Up!'s 2017-2019 In Colors which are Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide. 

I decided to use my favourite three - Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist. The new 2017-2019 In-Colors are bold and bright, however I wanted to show how they can still be soft and feminine too. 

The rose is from the new Graceful Garden stamp set on page 57 and the sentiment if from the new Lovely Inside & Out stamp set on page 157. Both the rose and the sentiment have been stamped in VersaMark and embossed with White Embossing Power. I watercoloured the rose with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist. The base of the card and the piece through the middle are Powder Pink Cardstock. 

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project. Now please hop to the next stop on the blog hop, Jackie Beers from Blue Linen Stamping. The full list of inspiring stampers is below and you won't want to miss any - they are all amazing, so please hop through them all!
