Valentine’s Day – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Valentine’s Day, so prepare yourself for lots of hearts and beautiful showcases of love. 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 blog hop features the Music from the Heart stamp set!

When Dawn Olchefske demonstrated her Million Sales Achiever stamp set at a demonstrator event in Atlanta this past November, I instantly fell in love with the set and HAD.TO.HAVE.IT! Some of you know this, but I’m sure many of you don’t… I love to sing! I’ll share more on that in a future post (stay tuned!), so this set really spoke to me!

I love a good red, white, and black card and this stamp set (think piano keys) called for this color combo! It’s clean, simple, and the Real Red heart really pops!

For this card, I pulled out my trusty Stamparatus and lined up my stamps where I wanted them on the card layer. I first stamped both stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then, leaving the stamps and cardstock where they were in the Stamparatus, I added the Real Red heart where I wanted it and stamped again! Easy peasy!

The final touch is a rhinestone for some added bling – and voila! A clean and simple, yet beautiful card with classic colors. My favorite kind of card!

  4. I love the stunning simplicity of this card, and your stamping is perfect. The piano stamped across both the white card stock and the red heart is terrific. Is there anything cleaner and more sophisticated than red, white and black? Lovely! Happy Valentine’s Day.
