Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! As we prepare for the July 4 holiday ahead, we are sharing projects that celebrate the Red, White & Blue. Not all projects will be patriotic, but you are certain to be inspired by all of them. 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 Red, White, & Blue cards are generally stars and stripes.  Today’s card went in a different direction after perusing the different stamp sets that would work.  Hopefully you will still like it.

Stamp Sets

This card is a very unique one for me only because of the number of stamp sets I used in making it!  It is difficult to say that one is the star over the others.  Picking one would probably go to the Alphabet Bundle.  It is very unique with having the outlines and Punch.  However all of the others play an important part.  The flowers are from the Painted Poppies stamp set.  They are colored with Stampin’ Blends in a not realistic coloring!

For the center cake, it comes from the Breaking News stamp set.  This is one that as soon as I saw it I knew it was for me.  All of the little images are the kind I really love!  Cakes have become more beautiful and creative over the years.  So this one received a striped coloring both inside and outside.  Those stripes are created using the same Stampin’ Blends.

Dies, Punches, extras

Placing the cake as the center of the card required a special layering.  The new Decorative Circle Punch has become a “Go To” for me lately.  It is a perfect size with just enough detail around the edges.  To add brightness to the layer, I went with the same color as the card base, Sweet Sorbet, and used the Layering Circles Dies.

My favorite of the card is the USA.  Those pieces were stamped from the Alphabet stamp and then punched using the matching Best Label Punch.  They come as a Bundle to save you 10% and it is one you will definitely want to get.  For the finishing touch, I added a few of the Iridescent Rhinestones to the blue, Starry Sky, area.
