Sunshine fun!

Inking Royalty blog hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Here Comes the Sun.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the joy of the summer sun. We are excited to share our 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.

About a week ago my dear friend and fellow royal, Andrea,  posted a card in the Inking Royalty Facebook page that was perfect for today’s blog hop!!  Of course, I asked her if I could share it with you guys!  She is a super talented paper craftier!  And I am very happy to be sharing Andreas card with you today!!!  I kinda swiped her color combination as inspiration for my own creations for the, Here Comes The Sun Blog Hop!

Inking Royalty

I adore this card so much!!! It is full of happy! Including the amazing color combination of Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, and Daffodil Delight!!  To create the sun burst Andrea used the light ray from High Tide Stamp Set.

I created three cards for you today using this wonderful happy sun color combination!!! To create the cards I used two Stamp Sets Abstract Impressions and Playful Backgrounds!  Both stamp sets have a very happy feel that works great with this sun color combination! Then for the simple sentiment, I used the always fun stamp set Hand Lettered Alphabet

  • The background was created using Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch inks with the Abstract Impressions stamp.
  • I flipped the stamp each time it was stamped to give a little verity to the shape
  • I was very tempted to add sequins for some bling, but in the end decided to keep it quite simple

  • This card used the Playful Backgrounds stamp set with the full spectrum of the sun color combination
  • The first step was to stamp the circle amoebas in Daffodil Delight
  • Then following in Pineapple Punch and Mango Melody
  • After stamping, I used A baby wipe to add some soft texture
  • The final step was to add the small dots

  • This time the ombree’ effect was created by stamping from light to dark
  • First up was Pineapple Punch, then Daffodil Delight, and finally Mango Melody
  • This fun stamp is in the Playful Backgrounds stamp set!
