Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Here Comes the Sun for FabFriday 139
My DH’s (dear husband) favorite color has always been yellow because of the sunshine of sunny Southern California. He grew up and lived in the LA/Orange County area for more than 50 years. Now we live in sunny (read: humid) Central Florida.
Therefore, the new In-Color Pineapple Punch was the first color for which I reached. Of course, there has to be a sun represented on the card, and I achieved that by using the Layering Circles die set, the Stitched Shapes die set, and a Share What You Love doile. The scallops on the largest circle and the doile were my main homages to the sun.
Here’s my card:
I did change the orientation from the sketch, however the inspiration from the sketch is definitely there.
Here’s the Fab Friday 139 sketch:
Varied Vases Bundle
The Varied Vases bundle, designed by million dollar sale demo Mary Fish (in whose third level I am) is so much fun and very versatile. Hint: before trying to line the stamps up to try to get it to match the punch, it is much easier to first punch the vases on a scrap sheet of cardstock. Then you can lay the stamps into the punched areas and stamp with confidence knowing your results will line up with the punch.
The sentiment is also from this bundle, and it fit perfectly on the Petals and More thinlet banner. Next, I cropped a Blueberry Bushel frame for under the sentiment banner and punched the vases using Blueberry Bushel from the In-Color DSP stack. I just love this blue because it is so clear and pure, as are the rest of the 2018 – 2020 In Colors. That’s the main reason that I chose Call Me Clover for the background embossed with the Petal Burst folder. The Pineapple Punch Stamping Write marker was used to simply color the stamped flowers. I really wanted the colors to be the focus of this card, and I think I accomplished that goal.
