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.

Christmas is my favorite time of year, so I was so excited to make my first Christmas card of the year for today’s hop.  I have meshed a couple of items together for this project.  They are from the annual catalog and the upcoming mini catalog.


Stampin' Up!, Warm Hugs, Wreath Builder, Jackie Beers


I decided on a wreath since that is usually the first piece of Christmas decorations that I put up.  I used the two different wreath dies out of the Wreath Builder Dies for my base.  I love the fuller look, as well as the two different textures you get from these dies.

For my decorations, I took the little trees from the Warm Hugs Bundle.  I thought they were just the perfect size.  There are Christmas decorations in the Wreath Builder bundle, but I went with the Warm Hugs, from the upcoming Mini catalog, for the rest of the layers.  The trees are stamped on Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and die cut.  I added stars from the All The Trimmings Embellishments to each tree.

The center of the wreath is from the Warm Hugs Bundle.  The Daffodil Delight , which you cannot see very well, has a stitched border close to the edge.  It is layered with the cute sentiment, which is a favorite of mine.  I just love HUGS!!!  The heart is also from the dies and is cut from the same paper as the trees.

The background of my card is also from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP pack.  There are really gorgeous patterns in that pack of paper.  To finish off my card I made a double bow out of the Red Braided Linen Trim.  I realize it looks like I didn’t turn the sentiment properly since the dots are not even.  But I did that on purpose.  It may not be how it’s supposed to look, but I wanted the “Warm Hugs” to be the first thing someone sees!!  I hope you will let me know what you think of these wonderful new products.
