Stockings on Day 9

The new Stocking Builder Punch makes these cute little stockings and they’re a snap to put together.  It’s great for using up those old scraps.  This layout can be used with any image of your choice.  For example, instead of 3 stockings,you can use stars, ornaments, trees, flowers, butterflies, etc…  The sentiment at the bottom can also be changed depending on what your theme is.  I sponged the background a bit so that the white doesn’t contrast so much.  Sponging adds a nice touch to almost any color theme.

A Simple Thank Ewe

I am just on a roll today.  I managed to make 2 cards today, both inspired by sketch challenge on Just Add In (JAI52).  This is the first one and thought I’d change the style up a bit for something more cute.  The sheep is stamped on vellum and rubbed with a stylus to make it look “wooly”.  It’s also one of the techniques used in a technique class.
