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 “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 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.

Today I went totally off the range/ranch! I didn’t really want a lovey-dovey card and I did not think I wanted pink so where to go from there??? Well check it out…

CUT – A) cut open the package of crumb cake notecards B) cut 1-3.25 x 4.75 of pool party C) cut 1-1 x 3.25 of crumb cake D) cut 1-1 x 3 of pool party, island indigo & crumb cake

STAMP – sentiment on 1 x 3 crumb cake & delicate details on 1 x 3.25 crumb cake

BIG SHOT – take 3.25 x 4.75 of pool party insert in falling petals tief and run thru big shot so that 3.25 edge is at the top of the tief (gives appearance of the falling petals of rain on a window)

MORE CUTTING – A) fussy cut the edges of the delicate details so that it looks like a window valance B) cut lace doily in half (use very vanilla side) C) stack sentiment using paper snips to reduce the size of the triple layer incrementally (I just eyeballed) and then cut edges to your liking

ADORN – using Wink of Stella sparkle the falling petals as well as portions of the doily and the delicate details.

ADHERE – A) using fast fuse adhere the doily and the delicate details to the top of the pool party layer B) adhere the pool party layer to the note front and adhere the sentiment

For details about the products used for this card keep reading to the bottom of this post.
