Here Comes the Sun – InKing Royalty Blog Hop!

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.

My project for today’s hop is a bright & cheery thank you card featuring the beautiful yellow of Crushed Curry!

I combined some fun new products to create this card – the Healing Hugs and Friendly Expressions stamp sets, the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Stitched Labels Framelits – some of my favorites!

I “fussy-cut” the the roses and leaves from Healing Hugs using my ScanNCut – shhh! don’t tell anyone! 😂

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sandra Cornejo at Madly Crafting. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  1. Beautiful card. A ScanNCut might have to go on my Christmas must-have gift. Your combination of elements is stunning.

  2. Yellow Roses are my favorite and these are extra special. I love your entire layout. And now I have to move this set up on my list.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, Julie! I love everything about your Crushed Curry card. So sweet! I’m so glad you hopped with us today!

Have a question or comment? I’d love to hear from you!
