Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop. During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Springtime, so I hope you are ready for gorgeous Spring colors, flowers and butterflies; maybe even some sweet baby animals. We are excited to share our creations with you today! 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’m sharing a card made with new products coming in the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog! I’m so excited to get a preview of the catalog this afternoon (you can too when you become a demonstrator here), but for now you can order the amazing products I used here in the Ornate Garden Suite.
I started by watercoloring some watercolor paper with Pigment Sprinkles. This is easy to do. Just like the name suggests, you simply sprinkle some pigment powder on watercolor paper and spritz it with water. Let that dry completely.
Next, I used the new Ornate Layers Dies to cut out a lacy border shape from the watercolor. Another border was cut from Petal Pink cardstock.
The background was embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla cardstock, then I did some gold embossing. I lightly brushed the embossed background with my Versamark Ink pad and lightly applied some gold embossing powder. I love the not-so-perfect gold touches.
The sentiment was embossed with gold powder and then I tore the edge. An easy way you can tear straight lines like this is to use a Simply Scored board. Line up your sentiment with the grooves so it is straight, then use a dull tool like a Bone Folder or one of our Palette Knives and score, or rather, cut through the card stock.
Some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon helps break up all the horizontal layers of this card. I like the modern-vintage look this created and hope you do too.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Linda Krueger at The Stamp Coach. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
