16 Days of Christmas Day #2

16DaysOfChristmas

Jeanette Comerford

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to Day# 2 of Whiff of Joy’s 16 Days of Christmas stockings! Each day of this event, a member of the Design Team will be sharing their specially made stocking with you and you will get a chance to win the stamp that they used on their stocking! Each day of this event, you can leave a comment to be eligible to win the stamp showcased on that day. Remember to come back often to enter and to see if you are a winner. We will be posting the winners at 7am CEST.

Today I am delighted to be sharing my stocking with you. I was inspired by these gorgeous hand-sewn stockings and knew immeditately that I could capture this look using Whiff of Joy die-lights!

I found a stocking shape in the Silhouette store and quickly cut two out of some white cardstock. I adhered them together to make it a bit sturdier. I found patterned paper (Kaiser Craft Christmas Carnival) that echoed the fresh and crisp colors in the stockings. I used the medium chevron  from the Chevron die-lights set to cut out the patterned paper and then all I had to do was adhere them to my stocking. I covered the back in the same way and then lightly sponged the edges with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

To embellish, I added my sweet Henry Mouse angel image and some adhesive gem stones. I punched a whole in the corner with my crop-o-dile and then threaded in some matching ribbon. I die-cut the tag using some glittered paper and then tied that to the ribbon with some baker’s twine. All done and I think that it will be a welcome addition to a special someone’s tree this year :)

  14. never thought of using paper as stocking decor instead of fabric, what a fun idea and so many possibilities with the various range of patterned paper available! So cute to add angel Henry Mouse as embellishment to the stocking!

  15. Wow, its so unusual with the different Contemporary colours you have used. It is beautiful though.
    I never thought either, of having paper/card stockings hanging up but it is a lovely idea...
