Story of Elegance

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! We are embracing some (or all) of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful blues for today’s hop – there are so many great ways to showcase the blues in the current color families! We are excited to share our creations 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.

I’m so happy that our blog hop this month features the color blue.  I’ve been stuck on blue for the last week or so.  There are so many shades of blue in our color line up and I love it!

As I shared last month, I look forward to the monthly InKing Royalty Blog Hop because it gives me an opportunity to be deliberate about doing something outside of my normal card creating.  What I’ve decided to do differently this month is to make a card without flowers.  (Gasp!)

Yes, I’m clutching my pearls.  🙂

So here is my flower-free creation……AND it’s stamp free too!  Double whammy.

The Designer Series Paper is always a go-to when you need a quick card that is easy and beautiful.

For this card, I let the Stargazing DSP and the Gold Celebrations Specialty DSP do all the work.   I celebrated with the back side of the Specialty DSP.  teehee.

For the sentiment and embellishments, I went with the Wanted to Say dies in Silver Foil and Night of Navy card stock and I used Dimensionals to pop both up on the card front.

Super easy!

Look at all the pretty blues in this DSP.  Wow!

For the inside of the card I added a computer printed sentiment and stars die cut from the DSP.

To complete the ensemble I added DSP to the envelope flap and a couple of die cuts to the front of the envelope to coordinate.


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, 

There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

I’m sure you’ll enjoy the hop so if this is your first stop,  please continue on. If this is the end of the line for you, Thank You for hopping with us today.

I’ll be back on Friday with another card to share.  I hope you’ll join me.
Have a beautiful day!
Until next time,

Live Graciously!
