Inking Royalty February Blog Hop

Birthday card featuring dragonfly die

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by a Birthday Bliss theme. What fun! Stampin’ Up! catalogs are filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make birthdays special – and we are excited to share our creations with you today. We are also excited to welcome guest designer Michelle Last to our team’s blog hop this month. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My goal with this card was to create a fairly subdued background in order to highlight the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (142749). Working on Shimmery White card stock,  I stamped the muted flowers from  Special Reason (142902) in  Sweet Sugarplum and Rose Red inks. I then added Mint Macaron using a stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams set (142924) .  The sentiment (stamped in Rose Red) is also from this set. The diecut Dragonfly was cut from a piece of Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper. This paper is part of a Saleabration paper stack (143831), which will be available starting February 21st!

I layered my art piece on Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron card stocks.

Beautiful You part 2!

I have wanted to paper piece this dress since the first time I saw this stamp set!

I used Beautiful You stamp set (143004 in wood, 143637 in clear ) Whisper White (100730) Real Red (102482) and Basic Black (121045) card stock, along with the Sending Love designer paper stack (142733). Ovals are cut with our new Stitched Shapes Framelits dies (145372) Finished off with our rhinestones.
