Inking Royalty June Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty's June Blog Hop!  Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Annual Catalog introduced us to five new In Colors:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  What a beautiful collection of versatile colors!  Today's Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist's favorite new In Color.  After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

As you can tell by the header, my favorite color is Sweet Sugarplum.  I'm a sucker for anything purple, and this purple is delightful!

Here's my Sweet Sugarplum card:

My card features the Floral Phrases Stamp Set.  This stamp set is so elegant and I have been making many wedding cards with it.  

I tried a new technique (at least new to me) using Gesso for my card background.  I don't want to hold up your hop, so I'm going to have a free tutorial in my newsletter next week.  You can sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this post.

After my background was finished, I added several layers using Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum.  I LOVE the ruched ribbon!  It ties like a dream and doesn't unravel.

Finally, I added a few pearls for some bling.
