Hi friends! I'm popping in with a fun little holiday card today. The sentiment is from the limited time free My Cup To Your digital and the sweet little stockings are cut with the Winter Friends Die Set.
The Diva Inspirations challenge this month had me thinking of this sweet St. Nick paper from a few years back. All the different styled stockings are so cute, so I dug the collection out and aged the panel a bit with three shades of distress ink and then blended a Prima oil pastel around the edges. The stockings are cut from coordinating paper and then again from white paper for the cuffs. I cut off just the cuff part and glued it over the top, then sketched in the design of the stockings with a marker, scraping on a bit of gesso to lighten up the cuff, then clipping on with mini library clips so they would look like they're hanging from the lines on the paper.
The sentiment is a mixture of two digis from the My Cup To Yours set. I'm really drawn to this holiday cheer sentiment and just keep using it! I cut out the holiday cheer portion and then hand trimmed the banner from the other holiday cheer sentiment to pop up underneath.
If you want to play along with our Diva Inspirations challenge, please do. I love peeking at everyone's creations! There are no rules, and you can take the inspiration any direction you like.

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
