Stamp Focus: Christmas Stockings + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese and it's time for another stamp focus! I have a wonderful set called Christmas Stockings Stamp Set and its coordinating die set with three projects to share.

My first card is all about the background. I used the stocking image as well as some sweets from the Way Too Sweet Stamp Set. The candy cane from Sweet Season was also perfect for this design.

The fireplace and ‘wood' were from the Framed Stamp Set.  The ‘flames' were created from the Majestic Bloom image and of course, there had to be a Wood Pallet Background floor stamped on Parchment Cardstock.

Altenew - Christmas Stockings - Starry Night - Therese Calvird (card) 1 copyI added a Heart Beat red sentiment to my Pale Gray Cardstock base from the Starry Night Stamp Set.

I love this new Holiday stamp and die set. I really tried to ignore it but as usual I gave in and bought the set. Can’t wait to start making my Christmas cards with this set.

I agree, it’s a classic and can be stamped in soo many combos which is perfect depending on whether or not you want more traditional or modern combos of colours and patterns. Hope you have as much fun as I am with this set! Thanks for commenting, Therese

Yes, I like how that one turned out. I actually made a mistake and so thought I had nothing to lose and ‘covered up ‘ the background with black, it was not part of the original plan lol. Have a great day, Therese
