Winds of Change for June InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around NEW. With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog, NEW gives us the opportunity to showcase new products and play with new colors. There are also new occasions (babies, weddings, graduations) to celebrate, so you are going to see a variety of projects in this hop. 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 card reflects two of the NEW theme ideas.  I am showcasing a NEW stamp set, Winds of Change.  I looked at this set when I received my catalog and it was a must have.  As you know, I love to color with the Stampin’ Blends, and this set is perfect for coloring.  I also LOVE to travel.  Next month I am going on another Viking River Boat Cruise.  And we begin in Amsterdam!  I have never been to Amsterdam before, so this is my second NEW for the theme.  I am so excited about the trip, and am equally excited to share my card idea with you.

 

 

Even the sentiment on the card goes along with the theme!  I googled Amsterdam and looked at all of the windmills for some color inspiration.  They are typically brownish, but the blades can be different colors. I added just a touch of the Granny Apple Green to my blades to match the bottom section of the windmill building.

All of the pictures I saw were in vibrant colors, so that is what I went with.  I always prefer a mix of colors in flowers,  so I mixed my tulips and then added a whimsical touch with the butterfly.  The butterfly is from the Hold On To Hope stamp set and the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I colored it with Granny Apple and Daffodil Delight markers then die cut it.

The sentiment is done with my favorite new technique.  I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut to fit the size I needed.  (As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, there are several videos out there on how to do this little trick).

Sail Away Anywhere

I am running around like crazy these last couple of days.  So I have the Ultimate Quick and Easy card to share with you.  It really cannot get any easier than this.

 

 

This really sweet card is just perfect for a fellow traveling friend.  The best part, there is NO Stamping on it.  Well, there is on the inside.  I know…..It’s shocking that I would share a No Stamping card.  Well, sometimes they are just called for.  This is made with the Fabulous Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  These are double sided cards in two sizes.  You get a lot of them.  There are also stickers, some with place for writing if you are using it for scrapbooking.  But they are all gorgeous.

This one is 4 X 6 and I cut it down to 4 X 5 1/4.  The only thing I did to the front is to add the gold Metallic Pearl to the center of the compass.  I debated on using the silver one, but decided the old time compass would have been brass, so gold fit better.

Please don’t overlook products like this in the new catalog!  They are those hidden gems that you come to love.  Tomorrow I will have another of the Hidden Gems to share, so I hope you will return.
