Have I got a lot of new things to show you today! The InKing Royalty Blog hop theme this month is Birds and Bees and I immediately thought of the phrase Bee Happy, which made me think of the new alphabet set, and of course, bees. Rather than me talking about it, let’s just get to it.
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! Spring is here, so we are sharing Spring projects with bees and birds. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post
How cute is this?! Now, just so you know, I swore I would never buy another alphabet set. Boy, was I a liar because this stamp set Alphabest is the best. The letters are big enough to read yet not too big to make a decent sentiment and there is a teeny tiny punch to go with it. The size was just perfect to compliment my bees from Honeybee Home.
With my theme of bees, I pulled out my last sheet of Heart & Home DSP. This product is still available from the Jan-June mini catalog. If you are going to make this card but, don’t do what I did and not pay attention to the direction of the paper. I wanted a horizontal card but my first piece of DSP was cut vertically, ergh.
More What’s New
You might have missed the dies I used to cut my DSP, called Deckled Rectangles because they are not a part of a bundle, but a stand-alone die set that can be used with anything. I have never been able to achieve the torn paper look in a way that was in the least bit artistic. Mine always came out looking like mountains instead of a pretty torn edge. While the Deckled dies don’t look exactly like torn paper they do have an interesting edge that I’m excited about.
One last new item is the 7/8″ Natural Finish Ribbon. This ribbon is beautiful on its own but you can also color or stamp on it. I tried stamping the bees on it but felt it made the card too busy so I left it as is.
