InKing Royalty Blog Hop: We Are Family
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop. This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs and this month’s song is “We are Family.” As you might guess, our Blog Hop is filled with projects that are inspired by family. We have a wide variety of projects today and we’re excited to share our creations 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.

Just Because Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
Today I’m sharing a #simplestamping card you can in minutes and it’s the perfect card for anyone and everyone in your family. With simple stamping, you don’t need many supplies and fancy techniques to brighten someones day. Just the right stamp set and some ink can go a long way.

Just Because Host Stamp Set

I started with a 4-Bar (3.5″ x 5″ folded) card base of Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Next I stamped a background with Soft Sea Foam ink using the Bokeh Dots stamps set. That was topped with a black line-art stamp from the (coming soon) Just Because stamp set that you’ll be able to earn with Stampin’ Rewards in January 2019. I love the large images in this set. They are perfect for coloring and I thought the sentiment on this particular stamp fits today’s blog hop perfectly.

A touch of Stampin’ Blends markers and a quick knot of linen thread completes this #simplestamping card. Can you imagine thanking the people in your life that made you who you are? Leave the fancy techniques behind and make dozens of these these adorable little notes that will surely bring a smile to your loved ones’ faces.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp with Brian. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
