A Stocking Full of Wishes

We're so glad you could join us for this month's Pals Winter Wishes Blog Hop! We hope you have your holiday wish list ready because today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous cards and projects showcasing our must have wish list items! You've probably hopped over from Rae Harper at Wild West Paper Arts, I'm stop number 9 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

I bought the Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die (124098) last year, but didn't find time to play with it like I wanted to.  I was so excited to see it in the 2012-2013 Full Catalog!!!  These little cuties will be seen on several of my gifts I give this year, some with the Stitched Felt items from last years Holiday Catty (we do have fun ornament ones this year, called Handmade Holidays Stitched Felt, #127832), and some with a stamped image, but all of them will have some kind of fun embossing on them.  I really like the look of the Perfect Polka Dots, but I think my favorite was when I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Perfecto!!!! While I like the looks of the "toes" and "heels" that is also part of the Die, I thought the bottom one looked more "vintage" by keeping it simpler.

One of the must haves that should be on everyone's wish list is MDS2! Nicole Watt used the Snow Festival Countdown Template (128136), which is part of the Remember December Collection Disc (129836) to create the to create the beautiful badges for this hop. She used the recolor tool on the lights and stockings embellishments to customize the look.  Ask me if you want more details on MDS2!Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Nicole Watt at Impressions by Nicole, stop number 10 on the Pals Winter Wishes Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!

    1. Thank you Sarah. Glad you hopped in :-)

  2. So pretty! I would love to see these made with SU's fabric, too! Very versatile and could be used on scrapbooks as well.

    1. Great idea Debbie! And I have some of the Christmas fabric. And... I am a scrapbooker and thought it would be fun to make them on put kids pics on the stockings hanging from the top of the layout.

  3. Beautiful idea...I agree that SU fabric would be very nice too! Thanks

  4. Great project idea! They are adorable

  5. Cutest stockings! Love them both, but I agree with you on the more vintage feel to the 2nd one.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I am thinking to try it in blue and white!!
