Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Valentine’s Day, so prepare yourself for lots of hearts and beautiful showcases of love. 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 choice for a Valentine’s Day card is a bit different.  I am not a big fan of Red.  As I was looking for options, I came across the Parisian Suite of products.  I new I had found my substitution.  It is a tad unusual, but I hope you will like it.

I definitely went in a different direction from Red!  I chose Petal Pink, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam.  I hope you will agree with me that the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper does have a hint of romance in it.  Of course, the “Amour ” pretty much defines the intention.

The flowers and die cuts are from the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  This is a bundle for any occasion.  The sentiment is from the Parisian Dies. It is the finishing touch.

I am hooked on the soft look to the flowers.  I made a similar “soft” card last week.  You can see it HERE.  My go to for beginning the softness of the flowers is to stamp them in Smoky Slate instead of Black.  I then colored only the highlighted areas and left the rest plain white.

I stamped and cut the branch with flowers as well as two extra blossoms.  The “Amour” is die cut from Smoky Slate.  Everything is placed with Multi purpose Glue except for the blossoms. One is added on top of another blossom for definition.  The second is anchoring the sentiment.

I also stamped the large image on the inside of the card and added a sweet sentiment there.
