Sealed with Love is in the Air for InKing Royalty Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop – our first hop of 2017!  Today’s hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on “Love is in the Air.”  This is the best time of year to start planning your Valentine’s Day projects.  There are amazing, new products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Occasions Catalog – and NOW is the best time to get them.  We are excited to share our projects with you and hope they inspire you!  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post, Shawn de Oliveira.

I have fallen in love with the products in the new 2017 Occasions Catalog and I’m excited to share them with you. Today’s project features the Sealed with Love suite of products on pages 14-15. 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s how I did it: 

I stamped the sentiment from the Sealed with Love stamp set in Memento Black ink onto a strip of Real Red card stock. I notched one end with the Banner Triple Punch.

I used the striped heart die from the Love Notes Framelits to cut a Real Read heart and to cut the other end of the strip so it would butt up against the heart. I glued the heart and strip onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.

I glued that onto a piece from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, then glued that onto a different, larger piece from the same DSP. Then I glued that onto the Sahara Sand card base. 

The products I used today are at the bottom of this post.

Here’s the hop:
