Christmas Kickstart #51 - The Stockings Were Hung By The Chimney With Care

Hello friends.  Today I'm playing along with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where they are looking for STOCKINGS on our Christmas cards!


I used an older Avery Elle stamp set called Stockings and came up with this CAS cutie...


I started by using the Brick Wall Die (The Greetery) on the top half of my panel to mimic a fireplace since I don't own a fireplace stamp, and then stamped the stocking image below.  I used PTI's Bitty Big DSP in Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse to paper piece the stockings rather than color them.


I did color in the pompoms with a Copic and then added Glossy Accents to add a little shine to the card.  My sentiment also comes from the Stockings stamp set and worked out perfectly for this challenge!  

Check out what Jo and her Special GD elf Cindy C came up with to inspire you HERE and then play along to get a head start on those Christmas cards...it really will be here before you know it!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
