InKing Royalty Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog.  We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog  – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek 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.

Today’s card is a sneak peek of two products from one of my favorite product suites – Pick a Pattern – in the upcoming Annual Catalog. As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order the Pieces & Patterns stamp set and the coordinating Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper – LOVE! The sentiment, “hello there,” is cropped out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered on a Basic Black scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circles Framelits. The flower stamps also come from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set – they add a little more texture to the card. The final touch is a little bit of bling using the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

  • Emerald Envy card base – 8-1/2 x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″ (or folded in half)
  • Pick a Pattern DSP strip – 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Crushed Curry strip – 3/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black strip – 1/8″ x 5-1/2″
