Sneak Peek for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

5-17-2016 9-07-37 PMWelcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop!  As Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, we’ve already been able to order some fun, new products from the upcoming 2016 Annual Catalog.  What a thrill!  Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature sneak peeks of projects from the new catalog.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Stampin Up 2016-2017 In Colors Averys Owlery


One of the items, among many, that I picked up as part of my new annual catalog pre-order was this super cute set of washi tape called Playful Palette.  In the Playful Palette suite is Designer series paper, and a stamp set.  I opted, for now, just for the washi tape.  I liked how they all managed to work together while still being so different.  They don’t even represent all of the new In Colors, but do have two included – Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum.

I paired all of these to highlight the Peekaboo Peach.  The card base and the Expression thinlit are Peach.  The Basic Black mat makes the whole thing pop.  Had I left that off it would have been all washed out.  I’m a big fan of the Endless Birthday stamp set, a carry over into the new catalog and I’m so glad.  The mix of script with type make it really easy to create your own greeting.  It is a must have staple in my stamping cupboard.

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