Very Vintage in Blueberry Bushel Stripes

Yes, I know, I use this stamp set a lot. But I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Today I’ve paired it with the Blueberry Bushel Designer Series Paper (DSP) and ribbon to make a very clean and simple (CAS) card.

 

Here’s what I made:

Lovely Floral Birthday Card in Copper Foil

A Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Lovely Floral Dynamic embossing folder make this birthday card shine. The sentiment is from the Detailed With Love stamp set, which is available in a bundle with the Detailed Trio Punch to save 10%. A piece of Copper Trim stretched out to make it much wider adds just the right final touch.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs, and this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.” You can play it near the bottom of this post. We are half-way through the year, so there’s no better time to start thinking about the joy of Christmas. For my card, I used the Mistletoe Season stamp set, the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. Check it out below. And be sure to hop to all the other InKing Royalty Blog Hop participants!

Little Twinkle Twinkle Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my Stamp Club last month. I used the Little Twinkle stamp set, the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, and the coordinating Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins. The Twinkle Twinkle Suite was designed with babies in mind, but this card would be great for anyone, even a manly man! I didn’t use the punch on this card, but you can buy it bundled with the stamp set to save 10%.
