Christmas Stockings

Ok have I got a loaded post for you!!  In September I had my sister (Simone) visiting and we created some gorgeous stocking - (XMAS-472) using a chipboard piece from Southern Ridge Trading Company


We'll start with her amazing piece and I'll tell you all about them then I'll post mine in another.  The papers were bought from Live and Love Crafts and were last year's Maja Papers called "Vintage Frost Basics".  That collection was STUNNING!!  

These laces are also from Live and Love Crafts (LLC from now on), except for the burlap which is Bo Bunny.  The ribbons with pearl centers actually came like this and are now a staple in my lace collection.  LOL! 

Simone used some snowflakes from Southern Ridge Trading Company (SEA-164) and just left them bare.  See?  You don't have to do a darn thing with them to look gorgeous on your projects!  She used some twine to wrap the loop part of her stocking to reinforce in the event the stocking is actually hung.  

More pretty snowflakes from SRTC - SEA-165 and SEA-166.  The bark heart is from LLC and so is the Melissa Frances resin star. 

Another gorgeous snowflake, resin star and lock, key was some old stash and that big gorgeous flower is Prima - "Tattered Treasures Wheat".

This PEACE is more chipboard from SRTC - XMAS-160 - and Simone painted it with cream colored acrylic paint first and then covered it in Snowdust Stickles.  It's sooooo pretty!!

And the completing piece on the toe is filled with more luscious flowers.  She even stickled a lot of the flowers and other pieces on her stocking.  The vintage berries and frosted berries were from LLC.

There you have it!  One beautiful gorgeous Christmas stocking!!  Didn't she do such an amazing job?!!  Oh and she even distressed the edges using my Zutter Distrezz-It-All.  I freakin' love that thing and use it every weekend I'm sure!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
