New Wildly Happy Card for June 2019 IRBH

Inking Royalty Blog Hop June 2019 "New"

I’m Wildly Happy that it’s time for the Inking Royalty June Blog Hop! This year we’re featuring one word each month. June’s word is NEW, which is appropriate since this is the month when the new annual catalog went live. I imagine a lot of us will be using new products for our projects – I know I am!

As soon as the new catalog went live, I couldn’t wait to get the new Wildly Happy stamp set on page 101. It has some of the sweetest images in the whole catalog.

I especially love the elephants. I learned a lot about these magnificent creatures when I visited the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand a couple years ago. One of the elephants I saw was using her trunk to pull down bamboo trees – very big bamboo trees. The pattern of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper I used for the background on this card reminds me of bamboo leaves. It looks like mommy and baby are nuzzling in a cozy bamboo forest. So sweet!

Believe You Can Host Set Smooth Sailing card

Today’s card is really simple, even though it may look like there’s a lot going on. The background is a piece of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) that is multiple designs together on one sheet, so that adds a lot to the overall look. The sentiment is from the Believe You Can host stamp set (only available with Stampin’ Rewards on an order of $150 or more) and it’s stamped directly onto the DSP layer. The additional pieces are cut from Soft Suede cardstock using the Smooth Sailing Dies.
