Welcome to InKing Royalty's May Blog Hop! During this year's blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month's projects celebrate Sunshine, so prepare yourself for projects that are filled with sunny images of joy in the great outdoors. 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.
When I think of sunshine & summer, my mind wanders to a field of sunflowers! So, I've got a sneak peek for you!
Introducing the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle! This beautiful bundle will be available on June 3! For this card, I used Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, and Mossy Meadow – beautiful, earthy colors together. The sentiment is heat-embossed in white and the finishing touch is a Linen Thread bow.
For the main focal point, the sunflower, I first inked up the stamp in Crushed Curry, then I dabbed a Sponge Dauber into Early Espresso Ink then onto the center of the stamp. Alternatively, you could also use an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker! The Sponge Dauber gives a softer transition between colors, but both work great!
I can't wait to share a little sunshine with someone when I send this card!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Joanne Brown at Stamping with JoJo. There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don't want to miss it!
Have a wonderful & blessed day!
