Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing Holiday projects.
For today’s card, I’m using the Sweet Stockings Suite. As soon as I saw this stamp set in the July-December Catalog, it was on my shopping list. I just could not resist the adorable Christmas pets Suite. The stamp set features a dog, cat, and guinea pig peeking out of a stocking.
I wanted to do something really different with this stocking using a slimline style card. The stocking die is about 2.5″ tall, but I wanted it longer. To do this, I lined up the bottom of the stocking on my pattern paper. Then I ran it only half way through my die cut machine and rolled it back out. Using my paper trimmer, I continued cutting along the straight line of the stocking until I had it long enough. Then I taped the top of my die at the top of my cut lines and rolled that top half in just enough to cut the top of the stocking and rolled it back out. This gave me a really long stocking.
My background behind the stocking is just free stamping using some of the smaller stamps in the set.
My pup and Santa hat are colored using our Blends markers. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hat band and pom-pom. You can’t see it in the picture, but it really does shimmer in real life.
If you haven’t heard, our card stocks, inks, and dies on sale today through tomorrow. Now is your chance to stock up on these items.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. If you have any questions about how to put this together, just let me know.
