I Gotta Feeling – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. What fun! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Yesterday I posted all about my new Craft Studio re-do.  You can see that post HERE.  Today I’m sharing the first cards I made in my new studio.  I wanted to really focus on one of the new stamp sets I purchased in my Demonstrator Pre-Order and give a nod to Mary Fish. You can check out Mary’s Blog Here


I am a proud member of Mary Fish Stampin Pretty Pals SU group.  Mary hit a fantastic milestone in September 2017 achieving 1 Million in product sales.  This is so amazing and so is Mary.  To honor any Demonstrator who achieves the 1 Million in sales milestone, Stampin’ Up! works with them individually to create their own stamp set.  Mary’s Stamp set is so…….Mary.

It was obvious it was her’s from the moment I saw it.She is the queen of a clean and simply yet elegant style and her Varied Vases deliver this in spades.  She is the queen of a clean and simply yet elegant style and her Varied Vases deliver this in spades. 

I channeled my inner “Mary” thinking how she would use her stamp set.  Nothing too fussy but with important details. On this card I added small strips of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper.

I included details from other die sets like the Stitched Labels Framelits.

And made this one using all the new IN-Colors, In-color DSP and coordinating punch.

I store all my paper and Stamp pads in ‘Rainbow” order rather than by SU Color family.  It is two schools of thought and both are correct depending on your own personal preference.  I add an ‘I’ on the in-color stamp case so I can pick it out of my collection.


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop Julie DiMatteo at The Paper Pixie.
