Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.” We are half-way through the year, so there’s no better time to start thinking about the joy of Christmas. 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.

Even though this is a blog hop and you usually get cards that are a little extra special, I have gone the more simple route today.  I have used basically all new products and believe that it is still a special card.   It is also a card that would be wonderful to mass produce, as we tend to do with Christmas cards.



Stampin' Up!, Stitched Season, Blended Seasons, Nature Sings, Under the Mistletoe, Jackie Beers

Stitched Season Framelits, 149013



This gorgeous cut out is from the Stitched Season Framelits.  Did you notice the stitching around the cutout?  The dies also produce stitching on the section that is cut out as well.  So you get stitching on both, a one for now and one for later type results.  This framelits set is part of a bundle of products that are only going to be available in August.  It is these framelits and a super stamp set called Blended Seasons.  They definitely compliment one another.    I will attach a flyer further down.

Today’s card is really a great production card.  The gorgeous background is the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  The little banner is the reverse of that sheet as well.  And the sentiment is from the Nature Sings stamp set.  I love that sentiment.  And just to give it a little bling, I added some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to a few of the ornaments.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Rachael Shadeed at Bluebonnet Stampin’. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!  Also, I have listed all of the supplies used at the bottom of the post.
