Paper Pieced Stockings

It seems like Karen Lockhart's Warm Socks stamp makes it into every season of stamping for me. This time I've turned the socks into Christmas stockings. I paper pieced the stockings by stamping the main image onto Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. Then I cut out the stocking portions only and hung them onto my sentiment block with brads. I used a Warm Grey Copic Sketch marker to add some shading and dimension to the socks. I finished off my card with more Cosmo Cricket background paper and the *the stockings were hung* sentiment from Karen Lockhart.

I had an extra stocking that didn't fit on the front of the card so I just added it to the inside of the card along with a strip of patterned paper. Just another way to add some fun to the card.
Speaking of warm socks, we have no heat now going on three days. The girls have been walking around with a blanket and their big fuzzy slippers. Hopefully today, we'll have hot water again and some heat! I hope your day is warm and fuzzy!

The socks are the perfect touch, and I like the pair inside the car to continue the theme. I hope you get warm soon!

I really like that you keep finding new ways to use the sock stamps. So cute! Our furnace (Just 3 yrs. 0ld) quit on Sat. - we're still waiting for the part! Thank goodness we have a woodstove! I feel your pain and discomfort! Hopefully tomorrow we'll both be warmer!

NO HEAT? why did this happen and why has it taken 3 days to fix? bummer...but you do have a fireplace, so i feel a little less concerned for you.

cute cards...stay warm!
