Video : Altenew Focus Post – Christmas Stockings!

Time for a new focus post at Altenew and I am showcasing the new Christmas Stockings Stamp set and coordinating die.

I have three cards and one video to share with you today.  Starting with a background technique.  I stamped the stocking images, some sweets from Way Too Sweet and the candy cane from Sweet Season all over the panel.

Then I coloured the whole background with the black Artist Marker and yes, I think it was worth it.

My next design nearly didn’t make it to the page, it was one of those cards where the idea was there but I was struggling to make it work.  It was only when I ‘gave up’ that it actually came together lol.

I created my fireplace and wood from the Framed set, the flames are from Majestic Bloom and you can see that there is a Wood Pallet Background floor on Parchment cardstock.

My final card is the most simple design and I have created a video to show one easy way to line up an image with a negative die cut.

I added a sentiment from the Festive Poinsettia stamp set and some Starry Night stars.

  1. All the stocking cards are great. Really love the little fireplace, but my favourite is the negative die cut as on your video. Very clever.

  2. Oh Therese, I love all the designs on this set, fun and festive.
    And what a cool way to create a dimensional look on your red stocking card, it’s indeed easier to line the die cut with the negative space.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. I really like the christmas stocking set and am really tempted. What’s holding me back is that I have such a hard time lining stamps up. Never seems to work out for me. BUT, this set is too darn cute!! A “luxury problem”!!! Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
