Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. When I first saw the Holiday Stocking, I knew that it would make a cute ornament. Not only that, but it would make a great way to give a gift card. I do not always want to pull out my sewing machine so I have opted for a no sew method.
Cut two stockings out of felt from the Holiday Stocking die set. Also cut the stocking cuff from white felt. For this stocking, I used glittered felt. The snowflake is from the Warm Winter Mug die set. I have cut the toe and the heel from green felt.
The felt glue is a bit on the thick side. Because I want to have the thinnest seam possible, I found it easier to apply the glue around the edge with a toothpick. The glue will dry clear
Lay the second stocking on top. I prefer to weight it down with a heavy book to dry. Once dry, attach the cuff, toe, heel, and snowflake.
I added a small hole in the back and tie a ribbon loop to make it into an ornament.
For a decorative option, you can add a blanket stitch to the stocking. I marked 1/4″ into the stocking and 1/4″ apart
Using thread or floss, create a blanket stitch around the edge of the stocking. It gives a fun, handmade feel
Here are a few of the stockings that I created with this technique. It is the perfect size to slip in a gift card or money.
Hello everyone, Alice here! Today it’s my turn to show you a creation. This time not a Halloween creation, but a Christmas card. I used dies from the new Cozy and Warm collection that were just released last week at Elizabeth Craft Designs.
For this card I used the Holiday Stocking die and an older background die from last year. I made a shaker card with it.
First I made a tray for the shaker material. I made this piece exactly the same size as the background die. In the tray I put the shaker material using different types of products. I like to mix the different types of shaker materials.
To close the shaker part I die cut one slimline background from white cardstock and adhered this piece on top. I really love this background die. He is a great fit for this card.
After I made the Holiday Stocking. For this I used colored cardstock in the same colors as the shaker material. To finish the stocking I added little Christmas Bells that I attached with some small pieces of hemp cord. Now they jingle like a Christmas sound.
On top of the card I made a banner with the text Merry Christmas. This is a sentiment from the Holiday Treats stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with the new distress color lumberjack plaid and on top of that I used distress glaze to finish.
Lastly I backed my shaker with a decorated piece of patterned paper and white cardstock in the same colors at the stocking and shaker material. Now your card is Finished!
I hope you enjoyed my shaker card and hope to see you again soon!
Hi Everyone, Katie here thank you for joining me with todays blog post! I am super excited to show you this amazing new stocking die from Joset’s new Christmas Collection, and of course I am using a ton of glitter. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and lets get started!
Step 1: Cut your stocking from your favorite card stock, next selected a 3D embossing folder and run it through your machine to give it some dimension. Next, I took my Vintage Photo Distress Ink and lightly inked the 3D pattern.
Step 2: Next apply your 2-way adhesive onto your strip of white cardstock and cut your stocking trims. I then peeled back the adhesive backing and add your choice of glitter. I used green for this sample but on my card I used Cool White Microfine glitter. (There are so many beautiful glitter choices)
Step 3: After you have assembled your stocking, cut your card front bases.
Cut your white base 4 1/4 “x 5 3/4 “and stamp your sentiment on the bottom from Joset’s new Holiday sentiments, I used “Christmas Magic”. Cut your green mat 4 1/2″ x 6″ , red mat 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ and your card base 6 1/2″ x 10″ scored @ 5″ 1/2″. Assemble your card as per the picture.
Step 4: With the same process by applying adhesive to card stock I cut out some holly leaves and berries from Winter Greens and applied glitter.
I pop dotted my stocking to the front of the card, added my glitter holly, added gems and speckled with white acrylic paint.
And we are done, I hope you enjoyed todays block post! I look forward to my next months post using Joset’s new Character Mrs. Clause creating a super cute baking Planner Essential page.
