Stamping INKspirations - Christmas in July...

 Iconic Dies, Tidings & Trimmings

Welcome, today I am celebrating Christmas in July with the Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop.

I think I prefer Christmas in July than I do in October/November/December, the pressure is off and it means I can really enjoy creating!

I have used the new Iconic Dies paired with the Tidings & Trimmings bundle to create my card today.  The background paper is taken from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Iconic Dies, Tidings & Trimmings

I die cut all the pieces from Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen cardstock, two of our new In-Colors, and arranged them on my card front before adding a sentiment which is heat embossed in white.

I am holding my annual Christmas in July event next week and I have been busy making some display samples.  I thought this design worked really well for a tree decoration too and I love how this turned out.

Note to self though, don't be watching the football whilst gluing with a hot glue gun!!!  Ouchy!!!

  1. Hi Jo, your card and matching themed sledge are just beautiful, your comment about the hot glue gun did make me chuckle. I have seen quite a few projects now using the Tidings of Christmas DSP and I am definitely sold! Will be ordering it while the sale is on. Any chance of you doing a video to make the decoration, just keen to see how you put it together, plus I don't want to end up with glue everywhere or burnt fingers!

  2. Absolutely Awesome Jo!💕 Hoping you will do a video for this set.

  3. Wonderful!!! I love both the card and the sled!!! They look great!!❤️

  4. I was trying to resist the iconic dies, and now I’m going to reconsider! Love your card and the darling little sleigh.

  5. Magnificent ! It's so beautiful !

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! Love how the dies coordinate with the DSP! Hope your fingers are feeling better, Jo! Thanks for the inspiration and for hopping with us. x
