Sending You Love – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around LOVE. You’re certain to see some amazing ideas for Valentine’s Day in the hop, but there are other ways to honor love in the lineup, too. What fun! 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 features products from the Needlepoint Nook suite!

I love how well the products in the suite coordinate together. And what a fun combination of colors in the Designer Series Paper! The stitched elements in the dies really drew me to the Needle & Thread bundle. Be sure to give it a second look, even if you don’t do needlepoint – there’s something for everyone in the suite!

I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Jackie Beers at Blue Line Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  1. Love your combination of elements from the DSP, to the cardstock, to the stitched die. I am going to take your advice and give this suite another look. Beautiful!

  2. Such a sweet combination of colors! Love the added texture you gave with this Thinlits die – shows how simple cards can be so beautiful! So happy you hopped with us today! ♥

  3. Oh Julie, this card warms me up, makes me smile on this very frigid (-18 degrees) morning.
    The colors are cheerful and the message wonderful. Love the gorgeous stitched panel, what a lovely, lovely detail.
    Beautiful card my dear, thank you for sharing.
