Ahh, the new mini catalog is here and in it: the stocking punch!!
I just absolutely love our punches!
I am always thinking for ways to use our punches.
Here is one I came up with that I hope you will enjoy :)
My thought: if you put 2 of these stockings together it could look like a sweater?
So, of course, I had to play;))
I stamped several stockings in our new in-color 'pool party'.
oh, let me put them together and see how they would look as that sweater. Well, duh Kris, one of them has to be a mirror image!
So, back to the stamping board ;).
To make my mirror image, I knew I had to pull an old trick out of my sleeve:)
I stamped my image,then used an old solid stamp and kissed the 2 together. This will give me my mirror image.
Now, you know what to do,right?
"Huff" on this mirror image stamp and stamp on our whisper white cs.

Ok punch out and enjoy,right??
LOL...not so fast.
In order to punch it has to be the opposite side.
So, I place my image up to my light and outline the stocking:

Now, I can punch out my mirrored stocking :))
|punch, punch :)|
Now, I put my socks together to form a sweater.
I trim the sleeves and circle punch the neckline.
I made 2 little booties using the same stamp and a little bonnet as well(with the wide oval punch)
I ran all these through my Big Shot and the square lattice embossing folder.
Add pearls and a (non SU!)wooden hanger for my little sweater.

For the rest of my card:
Base is so saffron cs,layered with pool party cs,and a piece of dsp from our neutrals dsp paper pack.
I used our absolutely gorgeous new vanilla velvet ribbon.
And using the bigz oval die and our new textured impressions designer frames embossing folder, created a frame for my saying from our occasions alphabet stamp set. Add pearls,here and there...
Put these all together for my finished product!!
Hope you enjoy!
Until Next Thought,
