The Stockings Were Hung...

Hello, my sweet friends!

I have a new project to share with you today! 
I have recently stepped down from a couple of my DTs and now I have some time for some extra fun.

I used this adorable image from StampArt Design by Kathryne.
It's called "Paddy's Christmas", and you can find it at Whimsy Stamps right HERE.

I started with this fun Shelf and Frames die that I've had for a while but not used.
You can't even see the shelf now because of all the greenery I added.
I guess that's how it actually goes when decorating for Christmas! ;o)
I filled the frames with my smallest Christmas stamps,
and then hung the stocking.
Finally, I added stickles to several areas and glossy accents on the candy cane.

This is a page to add to my December Daily.
It will fit in beautifully with the pages documenting our Christmas stockings. 

Materials Used:
Papers: Hot Off The Press;
Imag: StampArt Design by Kathryne - Paddy's Christmas;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Quickutz - Frames and Shelf,
Tim Holtz Festive Greenery Decorative Strip;
Stamps: Gina K, Stampin' Up;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Stencil: Fiskars Oval;
Stickles: Diamond, Candy Cane;
Glossy Accents;
Unknown Rhinestones.

  16. Nancy,
    Such a wonderful card. I love the shelf with all of its greenery and that bear sticking out of the stocking...how cute is that! I love th shape of the cut away area and all of the pretty swirls :) Perfect together...

  17. First of all I'd like to apologize for being MIA last week, but whilst being in the midst of renovating our upper floor we had to go abroad to meet several suppliers (great timing, I know!). And on top of that we came home this morning to find our central heating broke down… Thank goodness it is fixed again now, so we don’t have to wash ourselves with ice cold water anymore ;-) No fun, let me tell you! I am truly very sorry for having missed out on all of your latest creations, but thankful to be able to enjoy them right now! Your beautiful work is always an immense pleasure for me to look at Nancy! Thanks for sharing, hugs, Ira xox
