Inking Royalty June Blog Hop


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.

Since I used Butterfly Basics and Timeless Textures on my GDP40 card, I have been wanting to do a vintage collage type card using these two sets.

I did my collage piece using stamps from both sets (inks used were Sweet Sugarplum, in 1st and 2nd generations, Dapper Denim for the sentiment and the little three dimensional butterfly, and a bit of crumb cake 2nd generation over the sentiment).

All I had left to do was add  Thick White baker’s twine (super easy to work with), and layer like crazy with card stock in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White.

Now wasn’t that easy and fun? Here is my finished card:


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop,
