Holiday Greetings set and it really is my favorite image in that set. the shape of the stocking is just fun to me, this version was water colored with some pencil over the top. The circle was pressed with a Sizzix basic grey folder and the sentiment is from the ranger dylusions line. the printed paper is from a Bo Bunny pad with lots of little vintage Santa images and the card finished out at 6" square in real life. that ribbon is unknown. I did use a teeny recollections gold brad to "hang" this stocking with, the cord is tucked around the prongs of the brad and taped to the backside of the stocking.

This is still the small scraps pile but, it also holds that plastic su box of stamped sentiments not die cut, and some work in progress. this wooden tray was a yard sale find years ago and used to sit front and center on the table with pockets of die cut sentiments and colored images in it. I am still making personal for me to give away Christmas cards, I don't mind the last minute-ness of it because, you know its not a rush thing. and Its only 13 degrees out side right now so, its easier to stay in and make snow covered things at this time of the year mentally I guess. That tree die is a recent Simon Says Stamp black friday happy mail that arrived.
the generic Amazon version plastic pockets. so they are all the same)
Thanks for stopping by, I will be mostly making the rounds from work as we are working on the house on the weekends.
there were none at work, there are none at home. the good news is there are things already stamped and tons of printed papers.and I had a short day at work and could come home in the daylight.
So this one that sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, I added some red pen to the open letters and tied it onto the satin bow looking for a wrapped gift look.
Can you believe it is December already? where does the time go? and speaking of time flying, The Two Paper Diva's online store will close on Dec 15th. So between now and then everything in the store is marked at 50% off through their store front. You can read the details on the store blog here.
This particular card the Stocking is from the Holiday Greetings set, it was paper pieced into this card the blue part is colored with some Sparkle noir glitter pens ( I did dilute that with water in a paint well) because, what I have found with those brush tip markers is they leak and they don't do it in drips they do it in huge start over again from scratch puddles... so, I drip some into a little plastic well and then pick up the colors with an aqua brush. ( and that keeps my fingers slightly cleaner too)
The sentiment and the nail are from the You are a handy guy set. I did deliberately stamp the nail off set so it could be "hung" with the scrappers floss, when I read that sentiment it tends to make me think of duck tape and bailing wire lol. So, I did add some clear gelly roll glaze pen to the nail image too.
Happy Wednesday (AKA Desk peeking day) :) if you'd like to play along with us the link up happens here at our hostess Julia's blog.
and I came up for an idea for my work Christmas gift card holders ( mostly still in my head) the beginning of that is here in this shot though.
We did the trip up to Crater Lake on Sunday and there was a cloud sitting on the top of the mountain so visibilty was limited to about 20 feet up there and we did not see the lake but, the snow was up to DS shoulders there.
seen this page. ( and I loved the banner) so, the Merry Christmas is from SU and the name is also from the perfectly penned set. The snowman is from Personal Stamp Exchange and the big snowflake is an Sizzix die. The snowman panel and banner are up on foam pop dots on this one.
This is the same ornament for Olivia as used for Courtney just different colors. the Ornament and that insulation pink lacy diecut square are both from Our Daily Bread Designs. the crochet lace is unknown but, not vintage.
