Inking Royalty June 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.

I'm a teacher and now that I'm done with school for awhile, I like to spend my time soaking up the sun near water.  My card today features the bundle "Lilypad Lake" found on page 133 of the new annual catalog.  My mind immediately went to doing a center step card and I hope you enjoy the finished product.



I colored the stamped images using my Watercolor Pencils and an Aquapainter.  I had forgotten about these pencils and it was fun working with them again.  All of the images including the grass and ocean waves were cut using the die cuts from the bundle.  The sentiment, "Be calm and leave it to God", is two lines.  I stamped the two lines separately and punched them out with the Classic Label Punch.  Below is a close up of the steps of my card.


That's all for today!   I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Candy Ford at Stamp Candy  There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group - and you don't want to miss it!

Happy Stampin'!
Robin

  6. (sorry, I leave my message as a comment because I didn't find contact form on your blog, hoping you'll see it soon).

    Hello Robin !
    I'm writting an article for the issue n°48 of the french magazine called "Passion cartes créatives".
    The subject is the marble effect...
    I wish to show your card (seen here : https://songbirddesignsbyrobin.blogspot.com/2017/06/inking-royalty-june-blog-hop.html) within this article.
    Is it yours ? If yes, would you agree with that ?
    If yes, could you please send me as soon as possible a high resolution photo of your creation.
    Of course, your name or pen name if you want will appear next to the image, and the address of your blog will be in the address book.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer, even if it is negative, so that I can get organized (I have to give my paper for tomorrow).
    Best Regards, Elise AMANN
