Good Monday morning! Now I know what they mean by “glamping.” [cheeky grin] Our electricity went out Friday early afternoon and we didn’t get it back until last night at 5:30pm. YES!!! Over 2 days without power. Saturday afternoon we had to go and get a generator (this is where the glamping comes in) because our crawl space had a foot of water because our sump pump couldn’t pump. We do have a gas fire place so that had been running and with a generator we could run the pump, a couple oil space heaters AND……the TV, cable and internet. So, that’s what I call glamping. Lol! Only the four house on our drive lost power, everyone around us was peachy.
Well, I’m happy to say I made use of the daylight and did some designing. I’ll be posting the fun last minute gift giving idea on Friday. I hope you’ll come back and check them out.
Okay, now on to today’s share. This is my third in this series featuring the Hang Your Stocking bundle. I know!!! Isn’t it super cute? I was playing around the shapes and when I turned the “Swirly Stocking” upside I had my a-ha moment……Presents. This is my “outside the box” use of this fun bundle that features the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set and Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies Set.
BASE: To me, this design layout lent itself to a long & narrow size card (one of my favs – 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). The base is Whisper White that was dry embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Now that’s quick and simple!
TRIO OF PRESENTS: These are the “Swirly Stockings” from the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies Set. Yes! They are turned upside down with the foot portion cut away. I die cut the solid stocking in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, then the Swirly Stocking in Night of Navy. [TIP: I used adhesive sheeting (vintage) to adhere them to the glimmer stocking.] The “lid” is the cuff die, in Night of Navy as well. Finally, the bows are also from the same die set in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer I placed them with mini glue dots.
SENTIMENT: You may think I’ve gone crazy but I cut apart a sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set. Photopolymer stamp sets are great! Not only can you see where you are stamping, but you can cut them apart and put them back together without much effort. Sweet! I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a narrow Whisper White strip, notching the end into a “V”.
I just love this design. It takes this bundle to a great any-time-of-year use. I hope you enjoyed today’s share as well as my previous two. Thank you for stopping by today. I also hope you have a great Monday!
