Inspired by Stamping - Build a Stocking (and so much more!)

Welcome to Friday everyone! This is a special post as I have made some extra cards this week using the new release Christmas stamps from Inspired by Stamping.

This new release will blow your socks off. Joanna has outdone herself and the DT have had so much fun creating with these new sets.

Today, I am going to use the Build a Stocking set on two different cards. The stamps are very versatile and you will see why with my cards.

Here is my first card -

Lots of embossing for this one! I stamped the stocking and fussy cut it out. Then I embossed the cuff and fussy cut it out and adhered it to the top of the stocking. Then I embossed lots of stars all over the stocking. The background was created with the snowflake stamp. The sentiment is from an older set but still beautifully co-ordinates - Elegant Christmas Sentiments.

I used the IBS Monthly Colour Challenge for this one - you can check out the challenge HERE

My next card uses the same set but has a completely different look -

As soon as I saw the tree and deer in this set, I knew I had to make a cute little scene. 

I started with tearing a piece of paper in half. I used one of the halves as a mask at the bottom of the card. I then sponged ink over the top half to create my sky. I tore some white cardstock to create my snow banks. Once they were all adhered, I stamped my trees. The lighter trees were inked and then stamped off onto scrap paper and then stamped between the darker trees. I stamped the deer and fussy cut then popped him up with some foam squares.

The sentiment is also from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set.

The last thing to do was add heaps of stickles for my snow along the torn edges of the cardstock.

Our release has come to a close! I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the new stamps over the last few days.  Don't forget our monthly challenge too! There is amazing inspiration for you to choose from.

Thanks so much for looking xx


  1. Two really beautiful cards, Kylie! I love all the stars on your stocking and the snowflake background is so pretty! Your winter scene on the second card is really lovely, too! I love all the shades of blue you chose for the sky and how you stamped the trees...Gorgeous!

  2. LOVE these cards Kylie. The stocking so adorable with the stitched stars and houndstooth cuff. And the colours of the sponged background for your wintery scene are gorgeous ... love all the sparkle from the stickles. Loll xx

  3. Love your cards Kylie! They are just adorable! I love the second one too! What a great card. It could even become a masculine card too with the scenery! Love it! xoox
