Welcome to our first North Carolina Stampin' Up Demonstrator Holiday Blog Hop! Where Stampin' Up Demonstrators from NC share there inspirations for the upcoming Holidays. You are bound to get some great crafty ideas.
One of the favorite stamps sets from the Holiday Mini catalog is the Stitched Stockings set. You can check out the Holiday Mini Catalog on the right side bar. It's truly a must have set. It's so fun and not only can it be used for Christmas but for baby cards as well. You will see a card for a baby shower in the next few weeks so keep coming back.
First is a Stitched Stocking Christmas card . This card uses Real Red Cardstock which is embossed with Petals a Plenty embossing folder. Next is Crumb Cake Cardstock which is then layered with Very Vanilla. I stamped "Seasons Greetings (from the Snow Swirled Stamp set) in Real Red and heat embossed the stocking in Pewter embossing powder. Real Red Ribbon is accenting the card.
This next project is a Christmas Gift Tag. This time using the Stitched Stocking Punch. I cut out the Top Note using the Big Shots in Very Vanilla and then again in Pear Pizazz DSP Patterns Stack In Color. I cut the Pear Pizazz Top Note in half. Next I embossed very vanilla with texture plates using the Harlequin Design ( hopefully you can see the textured harlequin design). And punched out two stockings. The toe, heel, and top of the stocking was punched using Pear Pizazz card stock. I then added some bling. Using one of my favorite tools, the Crop-a-dile, I punched a hole and tied some Seam binding in Pear Pizazz to the gift tag.I hope these projects inspire you to make life creative!
