InKing Royals April Blog Hop

Displaying In Color Hop.png

Welcome to InKing Royalty's April Blog Hop!  Today's hop is filled with projects inspired by the Stampin' Up!'s retiring 2015-2017 In Color Collection - our tributes to Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder.  What fun!  We've really enjoyed playing with these amazing colors over the past two years - and 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.

My card today uses my three favorites from the retiring colors; Mint Macaron,             Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder.  Here's my card:



Here's the scoop:
  • Watermelon Wonder is the card base. 
  • The stamped image is backed with a piece of Tip Top Taupe.
  • The Definitely Dahlia background stamp makes this Clean and Simple Card elegant
  • The dragonfly from Dragonfly Dreams was made in 3 quick steps  First, I took a baby wipe and picked up ink from my Watermelon Wonder Stamp Pad lid.  Then I swiped the baby wipe across a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Next, I stamped the dragonfly in VersaMark and Watermelon Wonder and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Finally, I die cut it using a Detailed Dragonfly Thinlet.
  • The sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams was stamped with VersaMark and Tip Top Taupe and embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • A sprinkling of pearls in different sizes completes the card.
Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop,

Happy Stampin',
