Dog Days are Over – InKing Royalty Blog Hop
Welcome to InKing Royalty's August Blog Hop! This year's Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month's song is “Dog Days Are Over.” While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! 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.
I've created a fall-themed card for today's hop featuring the Rooted in Nature stamp set!
Here's a closer look at the beautiful Copper Foil leaves I added using the Leaf Punch:
I created the wreath background using my Stamparatus – such a fun technique! And isn't the color combination beautiful? I took color inspiration from one of the new Designer Series Papers that will be available in the Holiday Catalog – coming soon!
- Gray Granite card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″
- Gray Granite layer – 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″
- Blackberry Bliss layer – 3″ x 3″
- Whisper White layer – Cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits
