Filling the Christmas stockings

Stampin' Up have so many gorgeous dies that can be used for everything from cards to scrapbook pages to decorations to gifts to table favours! You'll find them all on pages 190-194 of the annual catalogue and they are well worth a look! The Holiday Stocking Bigz die is great fun - come and see what I made for my Stampers 6 club ladies:

Well, it's not Christmas unless Santa comes and fills up your stocking is it?! Did any of my lovely ladies get pieces of coal in theirs? NO, of course not!

I embossed the main piece of stocking with the Square Lattice embossing folder before attaching the heel, toe and ankle sections. Sticky Strip is a must for this project as the stocking had to be quite tough to have yummies stuffed into it! I expect you've noticed that I used that wonderful stitched grosgrain ribbon again to embellish my stockings. I definitely need this ribbon in EVERY colour!

Here's what you need to make these stockings
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler
Other: Holiday Stocking Bigz die, Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Real Red stitched grosgrain ribbon, hand held hold punch

Yesterday, my youngest son removed his socks while we were having dinner and accidentally dropped one of them on the table. Everyone squawked! "Please remove that sock!" I said. "If I'd wanted a cheeseboard, I would have made one!"

Tomorrow it's Three Minute Thursday here and if you've run out of Christmas cards, I shall be showing you a fast design you can use to rustle up a quick last-minute batch! See you then,

    I didn't get coal but I did always get a satsuma in my stocking as a child - satsuma in the heel, a sugar mouse in the toe! xxx
