Peekaboo! It’s InKing Royalty’s Blog Hop!


Peekaboo Peach


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog introduced us to five new In Colors:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  What a beautiful collection of versatile colors!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s favorite new In Color.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

How did I choose my favorite In Color for this post? I punched out a piece of card stock in each color, put them in a bowl, swirled them around, and pulled one out. I mean really, how else could I choose just one of these amazing colors?

For the background I used a stamping method that has been around for many years, and was recently demonstrated at a Stampin’ Up! event by fellow demonstrator Brandy Cox.

I used the square piece from the inside of the easel stamp from the Painter’s Palette stamp set. This is more easily done with the clear mount set, since the wood mount stamps have permanent adhesive on the back, and there isn’t a wood block included for this extra square piece.

I stamped the square in Peekaboo Peach onto Whisper White card stock. I stamped the paper several times between re-inking to get the different shades. I also overlapped the squares to create darker areas. It reminds me of fabric from the 1970s.

I inked up the new Pineapple stamp in Emerald Envy and Early Espresso, then stamped directly on top of the stamped background. These two colors are deep enough to (mostly) cover the design under them.

Okay, maybe I cheated a little bit by sneaking in another of the new colors, but doesn’t it look awesome?

I cut the sentiment with the Hello You Thinlits from Whisper White card stock, then I covered it with Clear Wink of Stella and glued it to the card front. The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock.

I’m proud to say, “No Stampin’ Dimensionals were harmed in the making of this card.” Sometimes I force myself not to use them, just to be different. But this card really only needed Multipurpose Liquid Glue – my favorite paper crafting glue ever!
