Stocking Die

Submitted to Shopping our Stash Challenge #76 and to Clear it Out - Anything Goes

Shopping our Stash challenged us to use a product that we just had to have because it was on sale.  Ha ha ha, so many to choose from.  A few weeks ago, I was at Michael's and had a 40% off coupon that was expiring that day.  I wandered around and didn't find ANYTHING that I felt like I had to have but also wanted to use the darned coupon!  I decided on the Sizzix holiday dies.  There is a stocking, holly, a christmas tree and word-art for Joy.

Clear it Out challenged us to do anything - with Red.  I love the stockings because they just pop (both literally and figuratively) off the page!

Here's the card that I came up with using the stocking and the Joy dies.  The paper is just plain old brown paper with the hearth part covered by washi-tape paper.  The "fire" is the wing of my bird punch.....

I have glitter everywhere from that glitter paper!  I'll have to de-glittify my whole crafty area!  

Craftily yours,



  1. Karen, this is really pretty! Love all the shine to it and those stockings are just precious! I know exactly how you feel when you have that coupon in hand and they can't find anything - but think this Sizzix die is wonderful! I bet you use it often!
    Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash this week too.

  2. You mean I'm not the only one wandering around looking for something to use my coupon on?! I think you made an excellent choice! Your card is delightful, and using wings to make the flames is brilliant!

  3. Love it! So pretty with red stockings and the glittery "Joy." Thank you for joining us for the Clear it Out Challenge!
