Farewell 2014-16 In Colors for InKing Royal Blog Hop

4-18-2016 6-23-42 PM

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop!  Stampin’ Up! announced it’s retired list yesterday – while we are sad to see some of our favorite products leave the catalog, we are certain that some amazing new products are on their way.  As we introduce the 2016-2018 In Colors to you, we know we have to say goodbye to the 2014-2016 In Colors.  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share some great ideas – featuring Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I pulled out all the stops and managed to get all the In Colors represented here on this card.  Mossy Meadow leaves, Tangelo Twist Sentiment, Lost Lagoon Butterflys and Blackberry Bliss (my personal favorite) flowers. Stampin Up Grateful Bunch AverysOwlery.com

I used the coordinating stamp and punch from Grateful Bunch punching once from the stamped image and once from Blackberry Bliss.  I added a baker’s twine bow to balance out the feel of the card.  I went pearl crazy and added lots of Pearls to the flowers, leaves and butterflys.

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