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.

To me Sun = Summer, at least it did when I was a child.  Another childhood summer memory is blowing on the little dandelion flowers and watching the fluff float around.  Now I think of allergies and where I was spreading those little seeds!!  But let’s stick with childhood summer good times!  This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the stamp set Dandelion Wishes in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  And when I saw the theme for this  month’s blog hop, again I immediately thought of the dandelions!  So here is the card made from my summer memories.



Dandelion Wishes, 146747



I totally love that sentiment!  I love the font as well as the statement.  And I am pleased that the card did come together as I envisioned it.  That is a super win for me.  Almost all of these products are new, which is another thing I love.

The colors I chose obviously were to match the Sun theme.  I believe they totally worked to create the summer feeling.  The new Pineapple Punch is a serious WOW and packs a punch (of color)!!


Color Combination:



In case you haven’t figured it out, the sun is from the Painted Harvest sunflower.  I stamped the center and then the least defined of the flower section.

All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
