Stuffed Stockings

Hello there. There is a new challenge beginning at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always anything goes as long as it’s Christmas related. Here is my card:

I used the Concord & 9th ‘Stocking Stuffers’ stamp and die set. The stockings and ‘stuffing’ bits were stamped with Gina K Amalgam ink and coloured with Copics. After die-cutting with the matching die set, I added a glittery silver cuff to the top of each sock – but didn’t add the heel and toe pieces as I didn’t want to take away from the colours and colouring.

As I used a piece of patterned paper for the background which had some dots – I added some to my images of the stockings, and some ‘Stickles’ glitter to parts of it too.

There were a few stamps and dies in the set which I had no clue what to do with – nor what they were. So I went and consulted the You Tube oracle – and found that there was a die to add the little ‘pull me‘ tag – and that you could also add a sentiment to pull which goes behind a stocking………….well – I had to have a go, didn’t I?

Here is the result:

I am loving this stamp and die set – I can see me using this for more cards. The most time-consuming was the colouring – but I’m getting into that now. I keep trying, I keep playing – and even though colouring is a means to an end – I’m liking it a little more…….!

I do hope you can come and join us for this challenge – get your stash ready for the end of the year. There is some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team – I encourage you to go and check them out. xx
