Sneak Peek InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog. We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek 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.

Sneak Peek #1. Daisy Punch, Eastern Palace DSP

I had an opportunity to play with the new Daisy Punch this weekend to make a gift bag and gift card holder. I used the Daisy punch to create the focal point for both. I used the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper with the gift bag punch board for the bag as well as the tags on the front. This punch pairs with a stamp set, paper, ribbon and faceted gem embellishments.  You don’t want to miss this fresh suite of products when they are available to order in June.

Sneak Peek #2 – Pretty Label and Label Me Pretty Stamp Set

For the gift card holder I used the daisy punch again, but also the new Pretty Label punch with the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set.  I punched the label out twice in Dapper Denim and cut each piece in half, one long ways and the other short ways.  I then used those four pieces to make a layered border behind the whisper white piece.  I used to do this all the time with the Decorative Label Punch when I wanted the top layer to be ‘grounded’.

Sneak Peek #3 – Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock and 1/2 Finely Woven Ribbon

One of my favorite new In-Colors this year is Lemon Lime Twist.  I have to admit, I didn’t think it would be when I first saw it.  What would I ever do with that bold bright yellow-green color.  Well let me tell you, LOTS.  It pairs wonderfully with Dapper Denim like I have done here, but also with Pool Party (yup, just wait), Black, Gold and so many more.  You will be seeing this color a lot across the Stampin Up Universe.

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