Christmas Stockings

We are into our first week of December and it's time for a new
challenge theme at Double D and it fits right in the season as it is 
Christmas Stockings!

We have a fun mood board for you
just for that bit more of inspiration!!



I used a never before used die by Sizzix for my stocking,
in fact I had forgotten I even had it!
The candy cane and the bow came with the die, the other small pieces in the stocking are from a Cottage Cutz set and a bit of greenery from my 'green' bag stash!
The background die is a Tutti Designs and the banner die is
Cheery Lynn Designs!

I used paper from a few older pads of my 6 x 6 paper
trying to use some up, funny thing is by doing that
then before I know it my newer papers will be 'old' as well,
seems it doesn't matter one way or the other
just use it!!

Take a visit to the Double D blog for
plenty of fabulous inspiration!!

Entering the following fun challenges:
Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday .... ATG
NBUS .... Never Before Used Schtuff
Word Art Wednesday .... ATG
The Paper Funday .... ATG or Holiday Time

I am glad that you remember this die. I know how it is sometimes when you have a lot. You really made an awesome card here. I adore the knit stocking.

So FUN! I love all of the goodies you stuffed inside of your pretty little Christmas stocking! Fa La La La La

Leslie Miller said...

That is one great big fun stocking... and never been used! It's very cute with the knit pattern and all the little extras. I love how you used your papers, too. I recognize the Mintay. It's true that the new turns old before you can use it, but I concur that it just doesn't matter. It's good whenever you can get around to it. I've been trying to include it on more cards lately.

Delightful, Diane! I love the stocking die. The trim and bow are the perfect touch. That little gingerbread man tugs at my heartstrings. Love that you've filled this stocking. And I know I have those papers in my stash too. I've save that background paper forever. You got me started and enabled me to be a fan!

You had so many elements from different sets but tied them all together in a great way for your interpretation of the stocking inspiration. Thanks for creating this card!
