Holiday Stocking Die

After showing you the shoe yesterday, I thought you might like to see the Bigz L Holiday Stocking Die done as a Christmas stocking.  Smiley from millan.net  (Hey, I occasionally have a "light bulb" moment!)

Here is one that I made with Garden Green cardstock and Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper (love this paper!).  I also used Winter Wishes Stitched Felt, Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon, and a Regals Button with some White Baker's Twine.  Do you like?

This second stocking was made by Cricket Thompson.  As you can see, the stocking can go either direction. Smiley from millan.net  (I seem to be master of the obvious today.  Tee hee!)

She ran the cardstock through the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Stocking Accents Originals Die was used to add the holly berries and leaves.  And don't you just love the "bling" of the Silver Glimmer Paper as the accent pieces?  The words come from the Curly Cute stamp set.  Again, this is so much prettier in real life!

The last sample for today was made by Laura Miller. She also used the Frostwood Lodge DSP and the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  She accented the top with some Cherry Cobbler cardstock punched out with the Snowflake punch and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.  It has a "country feel", don't you think?

Hard to believe we're talking about Christmas already, but it will be here before we know it!  Not only can you make cards and adorable accents with this stocking die, but you can use it to cut out fabric and sew a stocking!  I've really enjoyed playing with the Stocking Die and seeing some of the great things that have been made with it.  When you make something with it, send me a picture so I can see what you've made!

Until next time...
