Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog. We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek 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 for today’s InKing Royalty Hop is using items that I won at OnStage and that I got with the pre-order that us demonstrators LOVE!  Is a great treat to see the catalog first and to then get to touch and play with new items.

Oh So Eclectic, Lovely Inside and Out

The sets I used are Lovely Inside & Out for the sentiment and Oh So Eclectic for the flowers and leaves.  Oh So Eclectic is a very versatile stamp set and can be used singly or as a TWO STEP process.  I did the two step process and stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzaz and then the top with Always Artichoke.  The flower is stamped in Fresh Fig (one of the new InColors and one I LOVE!) and then secondly in Archival Basic Black. I used a Pear Pizzaz Stampin’ Write Marker to color the stem of the flower.

I added the sentiment in Pear Pizzaz and Always Artichoke and then used my friend Julie DiMatteo’s technique ( Julie’s posts are a must see, she is Number 2 in todays lineup.)  I added a little splatter to the white part of the card.  To do easy splatter Julie uses a marker, Fresh Fig, and flicks the large tip on the inside of the cap.  It is so simple….proof is in the card that I did! I then added a couple of rhinestones just for some bling.
