InKing Royalty May Blog Hop
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog, while also using some of the current products. What fun! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
There are a number of gorgeous DSP packs in the new 2018 – 2019 catalog, from which I’ve already pre-ordered a number of sets. There are still a number of DSP options as well as fabulous suites that I MUST have. My card this month is using just one of the beautiful patterns from the Tranquil Textures DSP pack. The colors are a mixture of current and new colors with Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White, Night of Navy, and Crumb Cake. For my card, I focused on the Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig, which I really wanted to emphasize.
Here’s my card:
Gorgeous Colors, Gorgeous DSP
Isn’t this color combination and DSP pattern fabulous? LOVE! There is a thin mat of Tranquil Tide right under the DSP, which is layered on Fresh Fig. I’d trimmed my papers incorrectly, but am pretty please with the final mat of Whisper White. I pulled the Fresh Fig for the Nature’s Twine (NEW!), and the larger Stitched Shapes circle, as well as the ink for the stamp. I think the darker cardstock colors really pull out the colors in the DSP.
Fonts and dies!
There is such a variety of fonts and stamps available in the new catalog, and this sentiment is from the new Love What You Do photopolymer stamp set. I can’t wait to place another order (pre-order??) to get more of these new fonts!
I did use the Stitched Shapes circle dies. I used the Tranquil Tide Stamping Write marker to outline the “stitch” marks in the ditch. I’ve been doing that quite frequently, mainly because I like the accented stitches.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Jennifer Spiller on Westside Paper Creations . There’salways lots of inspiration to be found in this group and today’s hop is another example of fabulous ideas. – So, sit back, relax with your favorite beverage, and then spend some time following this hop.
