Christmas In July - Color Challenge | Inkspirations Blog Hop

Forever Fern for Christmas in July

Inkspirations Blog Hop July 2022

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the July edition of the Inkspirations Blog Hop.  This month Angie gave us a color challenge - and a theme Christmas in July!  Since we have crafters all over the globe who hop with us, we have a warm weather and a cold weather color palette.  

Cold weather:

  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Evening Evergreen
  • Soft Succulent
  • Sahara Sand
  • Early Espresso

Warm weather: 

  • Bermuda Bay
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Petal Pink


I chose to use the Cold Weather colors for my project!  I just had a hard time wrapping my creative brain around the warm weather colors and a Christmas theme.  Guess I need a holiday vacation in the tropics to give me inspiration!

In addition to the challenges issued by Angie, I decided to use a Catalog Sketch that was shared on the CASEing Tuesday FB Group this past week.  So here is the sketch that I am working with.

I created a Stampin’ Show & Tell video demonstration for you to walk you through the creative process from start to finish.  I take you through my creative thought process to pull the colors, the theme, and the sketch all together for today’s project.  Take a peak and then let me know if it inspired you.  Remember, you are welcome to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you enjoy the videos, that way you will be notified when I share something new.


Since I took you through all the steps and the sketch has measurements on it, I am just going to list the supplies I used below.  Remember to leave me comments at the end, tell me what you liked here today, and if I inspired you to do something similar. Then, hop right along to the next stamper in our blog hop today.  Enjoy Danielle Kassing's project, and please leave us comments.  We love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin,
