So in Love for the InKing Royalty blog hop

So In Love
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! Today’s “So In Love” Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share ideas for Valentine’s Day or new products we love. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I  hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
There are so many things I love in Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful line of products, but right now I’m especially enamored with the A Nice Cuppa Photopolymer Stamp Set and coordinating Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies from the current Occasions catalog. The cute teacups, the sweet sentiments and COORDINATING FRAMELITS, made this a must-have for me. I’m excited to show you the projects I made using this versatile bundle.

The first is a card for Mom that could be used for Mother’s Day or any day you want to let your mom know she is the best! This card could be stepped up even further by embossing  the sentiment. Other favorites from the Occasions catalog I used are the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon, shown on both cards.

This next card is headed to my tea-loving coworker who has a birthday this month. Paired with a nice box of her favorite brand, I know she’ll appreciate the gift.
For this card, I used the same DSP, just a different pattern from the set. I choose a different teacup and  cut it out in Pool Party card stock. I also used the heart-shaped smoke Framelit and cut it out in Smoky Slate card stock. To change it up a little more, I decided to make this a round card, because it seems to be a habit for me on blog hops. Because of the size, I used half a doily instead of full one.
These frilly cards are a little out of the box for me, but this set brings out a Downton Abbey side I didn’t know I had. 😀

    I am loving your “Downton Abbey” dollies cards! Both are precious! But, your circle cards always make me smile the most! I am going to have to give it a try one day. I also so love the “have a cuppa” stamp set and the cup and kettle dies!!!! they are so wonderful :>
