Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January 2023 Blog Hop! If your craft projects aren’t already filled with hearts, then you might be behind the eight ball. No worries – we are here to help. We are excited to share our heart-filled creations with you and hope you love 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.
The Hearts theme was an easy one to follow with the fabulous new Country Floral Lane Suite of products in the new Mini Catalog. I loved this Suite as soon as I saw it and hope you will as well.
Stamps and Punches
My card is sort of a Heart Bouquet. And is not at all what I had planned originally! The Country Bouquet Bundle is a Punch Bundle. That was where I was originally headed. Then I saw the floral heart that I have used and changed directions just a bit. I did use the leaves from the punch. They are slightly hidden by the bow.
However, the floral heart intrigued me and I had to give it a try. It is a two step heart with the flowers and greenery separate. The flowers are stamped using Sweet Sorbet Ink and the greenery is Pear Pizzaz. Sadly with this being a punch bundle, I had to cut out the heart myself. Since a heart is mostly straight lines that was not a huge undertaking. I did use the leaves from the stamp set in Pear Pizzaz as well and punched them using the Country Bouquet Punch. Then decided it needed more greenery to look like a bouquet. So out came the Boughs Punch for the background greens. This punch has been getting a lot of use from me of late.
To continue with the Sweet Sorbet and Pear Pizzaz, I went with a striped piece of DSP. It is from the Country Floral Designer Series Paper that is also included in the Suite of products. I layered the striped DSP onto a piece of Basic White and then to the base card of Pear Pizzaz.
There are several final add on touches to complete this card. First is the sentiment. It is from the Country Bouquet stamp set as well. So this is a one set card basically. I love that!! But it is die cut with a die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. It is nothing flashy, and just has a bit of an embossed border around the edges.
The most notable of the finishes is the beautiful bow. The Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon is so pretty and extremely easy to work with. Due to that I went a bit out of the norm and created a three strand bow. I love how it really pops up. And the final touch is the Festive Pearls scattered around. There are some on flower centers of the heart, and one on the sentiment.
