Christmas Stockings

I'm back today with my DT post,
I've made a couple of Christmas stockings,
The first stocking is in a slightly vintage style,
I used some of the beautiful 46mm white Guipure lace on the top and some of the gold coloured sequins,

I used a template off my Cameo machine just making it larger, then I used one of the papers from the North Pole paper collection, for the base, This vintage style image is from the North Pole paper collection, I distressed the edges a little,
I built up layers with some of the fabulous Scrapiniec mesh background and some of the
 Christmas tree ribbon, I also used a  Wycinanka chipboard - Winter is coming garland - 01 which I have cut down,

I got this gorgeous Craft Passion - Holly with fruits die in my DT package the other day and it went fab with the image too, these dies cut beautifully first time, I slightly rounded the fruits/berries die cuts with my ball tool to give a little 3D effect.

I then used the same die behind a poinsettia die I have, this I cut out, layered it up then added a
gold coloured sequin for the middle, I also used some of the decorative twig in red and some
red Pomegranate apples too,

My second stocking is more shabby chic in style.

I used the same template, but don't they look so different? the papers used on this one are from the North Pole paper collection, I used some of the gorgeous shabby ruffle trim in white on the top this time, a silver coloured sequin and then some 25mm Guipure lace in white underneath,
Further down the stocking I also used some cotton lace,
I coloured this magnolia image with my distress re-inkers to match in with the colours adding a little purple too, I then used some purple Pomegranate Apples to bring the colour in too.

Behind my poinsettia I've used the same holly die cut from Craft passion and a Scrapiniec holly leaf which came as part of the  Big Holly Wreath chipboard by Scrapiniec, I also used a
 white Pomegranate apple this time as the center of my poinsettia.

Close up of image and the gorgeous chipboard Poinsettia by Scrapiniec which I have covered with glamour dust and sparkles like mad in real life,
So there you have two stockings, made similar but which look so different,
See you soon,
Happy Crafting!!
