Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Christmas in July. Demonstrators have been able to order new products from the upcoming August-December Mini Catalog, so prepare yourself for a gorgeous mix of new products, products available in the Annual Catalog and returning favorites. What fun! 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 for today’s hop features new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog products!

Handmade Christmas Card featuring the Stampin' Up! Gift Wrapped Bundle with the sentiment A Very Merry Christmas.

The Gift Wrapped Bundle is a must-have this holiday season! I love the retro feel and the clean & bold lines. Super easy to change up the colors of the bows with cardstock, Stampin’ Blends, or Stampin’ Write Markers! Here’s another angle of this card:

Isn’t the Designer Series Paper divine?! It’s from the ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper!

To give the bow some added dimension, I cut a small circle from our Gold Foil Sheets using the Layering Circle Dies. Then I placed a dainty gold bow over top from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack! A trio fo Wonderful Gems finishes off the card. Quick, easy, bold, and cute!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Joanne Brown at Stamping with JoJo. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  1. A very classic, pretty Christmas card. The pops of gold are stunning on your card. I especially like the simple bow on the red bow. Beautiful.

  2. Thank you so much for all the great ideas from everyone. Coffee cups and holder were well done, may have to do that one. Also want to thank you personally for sharing so many things from the catalog, such a terrible time figuring out what to get.

  3. I love this set. One of my must haves. The kitschy mid century vibe is all over this. Your card is amazing. Love the plaid with it!

  4. I love the beautiful plaid paper and the gold bow on top of the red one. So pretty and festive. Enjoy your day!

  5. Julie – I love your card. This is my favorite set in the upcoming mini catalog, and I love how you used it for your card. Your colors are perfect, the gold bow is a gorgeous addition, and your gold dots are a “blown kiss”!! Thanks for sharing this beauty today.

  6. I love this paper and love this bow. Together they are perfection! Such a sweet, simple beauty! So glad you hopped with us today, Julie!
