Welcome to InKing Royalty’s June Blog Hop! Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog introduced us to five new In Colors: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. What a beautiful collection of versatile colors! Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s favorite new In Color. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Pick my Stampin Up In Color Choice – Dapper Denim
I pulled out Dapper Denim because somehow I’ve gone 6 weeks without having used it yet. Shocking, I know. I also hadn’t had a chance to use my Flourish Thinlits and decided to combine the two for my card for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop today. I pulled out my Dapper Denim Stamp pad then pulled out various other stamp pads to find a color combination I liked.
Select Complimentary Colors
I pulled out my Dapper Denim Stamp pad then pulled out various other stamp pads to find a color combination I liked. I finished with Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede. In fact, I think Brian has recently done a card with similar colors, probably why these looked good to me today.
You might notice that I combined stamping and the thinlits. I started thinking I would use the large flourish from the die set along with some stamping underneath but I just didn’t like how it was coming together and I didn’t want to pull out another stamp set. So I started over. Twice. Finally I stamped the flower image using stamped off Dapper Denim once, then full strength. I added the Mint Macaron leaves and then the sentiment. I had already cut out two flowers from the die set so I added those on top of the stamped flower. Lastly, I took that great big flourish I had die cut from Denim and clipped it apart into three pieces and tucked them in around the flowers. Now that I liked. I topped the flowers off with some embellished rhinestones that I had left over from the Holiday Catalog. They were lost for a while, in a box…..then they were found. Might as well use them.
