InKing Royalty Blog Hop - Walking on Sunshine - spring & summer cards

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate Spring and Summer. With inspiration from Katrina & the Waves’ song “Walking on Sunshine,” we’ve created projects that share the joy and excitement that accompany warmer weather. We are excited to share our projects with 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.

You know how I like to mix and match products. For my card, I used 2 bundles and 3 Designer Series Papers (DSP) to create a summery scene by the sea. The waves are from the Sweet Soiree DSP. The table is from the Wood Textures DSP. The tumbler is from the Delightful Daisy DSP – I think I saw one just like this recently in a store.

Whether you remember the song or not, be sure to check it out here:


Here’s what I made:
