Christmas in July – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Christmas in July – InKing Royalty Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! Can you believe we are half-way to Christmas? It might seem a bit early to start looking at wintry scenes and holiday goodies, but there are so many great products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog that we want to share before the Holiday Catalog is revealed next month. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on Christmas in July. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Oh goodness, Christmas in July, this was such fun…

Christmas in July 1of5 SWMKZB

Whisper White & Old Olive cardstock for the card base, layers & tree.

Lovely As A Tree (I’ll never grow tired of this set or this tree), Flurry of Wishes (sentiments) & Work of Art (large swash).

Christmas in July 2of5 SWMKZB

Olive Olive ink for the sentiment, background stamping & tree. Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker for the tree trunk and branches. I am sure there is a name for the technique but I love the way it looks (cool huh?).
Christmas in July 4of5 SWMKZB
Gold Glimmer paper for the star & linen thread to wrap it all up (so to speak).

Things were just a touch messy when I finished up… I know that never happens to anyone else – right?

Anyway, detailed instructions (print recipe) can be found at the bottom of the blog hop list just before the supply list!
