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 products to make Christmas special, such as the new Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the new Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  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.



Here’s what I made:

The Be Merry Designer Series Paper colors are Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Garden Green. For today’s card, I decided to replace Garden Green with Pear Pizzazz for a softer feel. What do you think?


Merry Mistletoe stamp set and Be Merry DSP combine to make this quick and easy Christmas card. Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pear Pizzazz card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″, for the inside

Stamped with the Merry Mistletoe stamp set:

  • deer and mistletoe in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White CS
  • sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • sentiment
  • one size larger oval from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS
  • two sizes larger oval from a scrap of Pear Pizzazz CS

Cut using the 1/16″ Circle Punch:

  • three circles from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS

Assembled the card:

  •  5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ Whisper White CS glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP glued onto the 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ Whisper White CS
  • 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ Whisper White CS (stamped with deer and mistletoe) glued onto the DSP
  • three ovals glued together, then glued onto the DSP and stamped piece
  • applied three small Cherry Cobbler Enamel Dots in the corner above the deer
  • glued 1/16″ circles: 2 to the sentiment, and one to the deer
  • went over the mistletoe berries with a white chalk marker, to give them that “white with a green tinge” that real mistletoe berries have
  • 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS glued to the inside of the card base
