Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! Today’s So In Love Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share ideas for Valentine’s Day or new products we love. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
This is one of the three projects we made at January’s Stamp Club meeting, and I thought it would be perfect for today’s blog hop. It’s a Valentine AND it’s made with new products that I love, including the Bloomin’ Love Bundle and the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit!
The card is 4″ x 4″. The card base is Whisper White Thick card stock, with a Crumb Cake CS layer, then the Blushing Bride CS top layer.
We cut the heart from a Silver Foil Sheet with the new Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Dies. The Precision Cutting Plate and the new Big Shot Die Brush make intricate dies like this a breeze to work with. The Precision Cutting Plate gives you a nice, clean cut; and the Die Brush makes it super easy to get the die cut – and all the extra little bits of paper – out of the die. No more poking and poking through all those little holes.
After gluing the heart to the front layer, we adhered a piece of ribbon from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit using a dry adhesive, such as Fast Fuse or Snail. A dry adhesive won’t bleed through the ribbon like a wet glue can. We wrapped the ribbon to the back of the Crumb Cake layer before gluing it onto the card base.
We stamped the banner in Blushing Bride, and the sentiment in Crumb Cake – so easy to line up with the see through photopolymer stamps! – then cut it using the Large Numbers Framelits Dies. This die set has a banner that coordinates with several of the new stamp sets.
We then glued the banner on top of the ribbon. Then we glued on some scattered sequins in Blushing Bride, White, and Silver. The Silver ones are from the Metallics Sequin Assortment, and the rest are from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. The kit includes gold sequins, but I was in more of a silver mood when I designed this card. I’m sure it would be just as lovely with a heart cut from a Gold Foil sheet and gold sequins.
We used the Envelope Punch Board to make the envelope from Whisper White Envelope Paper, then stamped the floral design on the flap in Crumb Cake.
