More Stockings


Hello again!  Sunday already?  Two more weeks till christmas?  Yikes!  Must finish my christmas cards and get the rest of the shopping done!  Hubby off for a fortnight now and I've put the rest of my commissioned work to bed at last!  I digress.  Back to crafts.....
 
Yesterday I showed you my kitten boot - well this is the original shape of the stocking die.  It's listed in the Annual Catalogue on page 193 as Holiday Stocking Bigz L die.
 
At the end of the christmas term, I like to make a personal gift for my regular groups as a way of saying "thank you" for their support throughout the year.  This was my theme this year.
 
I used a variety of embossing folders to add texture to each stocking, Petals a Plenty, Vintage Wallpaper, Houndstooth,  Arglye,  and Elegant Lines.  I stamped and punched the circular "do not open til christmas" from More Merry Messages stamp set and mounted it on a scalloped circle punch for the cuff.
 
I chose Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler card stock so I could interchange the colours for the cuffs, heels and toes.  That lovely Cherry Cobbler sweater trim is only available in the Autumn/Winter catalogue which finishes on January 31, 2013.  If you haven't got any, get some - I love it.  Makes a change from using ribbon!
 
Inside each stocking there's a peppermint candy cane, a little gift wrapped in Festival Prints DSP, a tag with a lovely verse white embossed on cherry cobbler.  We have coloured embossing powder too, so I  embossed cherry cobbler on crumb cake too.
 
Everyone got a card too.  Here's one of the designs I made and the recipe.
 
Stamp sets: Christmas Lodge, Joyous Celebrations, Greetings of the Season
Ink:  Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, More Mustard marker
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories:  Framelits Labels Collection, Chevron Embossing Folder, Music Notes standard wheel, Rhinestones
 
I even decorated the envelope - inked the Music Notes wheel in versarmark and partially ran it on the corner of the envy, then used a sponge dauber and sponged some crumb cake on it and stamped "Noel" in Cherry Cobbler on top.
 
Thanks for stopping by - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
