InKing Royalty Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! It’s Christmas in July, and today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by…you guessed it…Christmas! What fun! Although Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog will be released to demonstrators this week (we can’t wait to share that with you), our Annual Catalog is filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make Christmas special.  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.

Carols of Christmas by Stampin' Up!

Today I’m playing with the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Card Front Builder Thinlits® Dies—a new release coming in the Holiday (Fall/Winter) Catalog. Can you believe it’s almost time for all those fun themes? What’s special about these stamps and Thinlits is that you’ll get a chance to order them early—a month earlier than the Holiday Catalog is revealed.

For my sample, I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using Stitched Shapes Framelits® Dies.

The background was created by stamping the Music Sheet Background Stamp with Smoky Slate over a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I also used one of the Card Front Builder Thinlits to cut the moon and stars in the background. A piece of Gold Foil Sheets is adhered behind the cut to add a little shine.

The trees are also included in the Thinlits set and frame the sentiment along with Cherry Cobbler Double-stitched Ribbon.

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