Art in Bloom Holiday Card

For the final Christmas in July project, I have chosen to create an Art in Bloom holiday card.  The Art in Bloom Bundle is in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  The Art in Bloom Bundle includes the Art in Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder.  Be sure to watch the assembly video below to see how to use Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. While the bundle isn’t a holiday design, by using traditional holiday colors of red & green the Art in Bloom Bundle easily transitions to a holiday card.  Additionally, using the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (a returning favorite in the Mini Catalog!)  and adding a holiday sentiment completes the card’s theme.

Sneak Peek: Christmas to Remember

Today’s Christmas in July project offers a sneak peek of the Christmas to Remember Bundle from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  You’ll be able to order products from the Mini Catalog starting August 3, 2021. (Yes, catalog date is July but due to product and global shipping delays, launch had to be delayed.) The Christmas to Remember bundle is just one of the offerings in the Painted Christmas Suite. This was one of the first bundles on my preorder list. With the array of holiday greetings in the stamp set, I have plenty of greetings for holiday cards.  When combined with the coordinating Christmas Pinecone Dies as a background, beautiful holiday cards are easy to create. For my project, the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper creates the background for layering the die cuts.

Christmas in July 2021-Snowman Season Gift Tags

Keeping with this week’s gift tag theme for Christmas in July, I am featuring Snowman Gift Tags.  A recent purchase of snowman notepads became the inspiration for the snowman gift tags.  Since I’ll be “giving a little something” to folks throughout the holiday season, it’s only appropriate to make the presentation special. Right?!  Even better, the notepads fit perfectly into the Ombre Gift Bags. And with coordinating snowman gift tags, the “little something” is ready to present later this year.  The Snowman Season Stamp Set and the Tailor Made Tags Dies in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog are perfect for making the gift tags.  Best of all, the tags are quick and easy to make!

Christmas in July 2021-Poinsettia Gift Tags

It’s the second week of Christmas in July 2021 and today features Poinsettia Gift Tags.   Last holiday season, I saw Poinsettia Gift tags created by other demonstrators and made a mental note to use the set for gift tags in the future. So this year, I am making Poinsettia gift tags for some of my holiday packages.  The Poinsettia Dies are perfect for creating the poinsettia embellishment for the tags.  The first tag is a poinsettia gift tag design using non-traditional Christmas colors.  The 2021-2023 In Colors are some of my favorite colors and so I selected Polished Pink for the poinsettia.  It will be perfect to for use this Christmas on one of my granddaughter’s gifts.  In addition, I’m sharing another poinsettia gift tag using stamped poinsettia layers which are cut with the coordinating dies.  The color scheme is more subtle (crumb cake on very vanilla cardstock). 

Project Materials:
