Christmas Stocking Inspiration

Happy Saturday!

I have been holed up in my craft room all weekend stamping away while hubby watches football!
I hope you've had a chance to do some crafting too!

This week the design team is sharing projects that are "Christmas Stocking" inspired.
I have two projects to share with  you!

This first one is a Center Step Card.
You can see that the colors were inspired by this stocking paper by 3 bugs in a rug.

I used one of the newest Rubber Cafe stamps, Warren and Frosty.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Tidings set.

Here's another view that shows the steps better.

And here is a close up look at Warren and Frosty.

My second project is a fun little goodie to throw into a stocking.  It's a little Tic Tac holder.
I like to make up a bunch of these and keep them in a basket by the front door to give out to visitors who drop by during the holidays!

These are really quick and easy to make!

Start with a 5" x 3" piece of light blue cardstock.
Stamp the snowman from the "Baby it's Cold Outside" set from The Rubber Cafe onto a 2 3/4" x 1 7/8" piece of white Pugnacious Signature paper.

Score the blue card stock at 2 1/8" and at 2 7/8".  Adhere ribbon to backside of card.
Color image and adhere to front.  Use a utility knife to cut out the lower portion of the snowman.

Then just attach the Tic Tac box to the inside and tie the ribbon.

Here are a few poems you could include if you are so inclined....

In the cold of winter when snow arrives,

All the snowmen dance and feel alive.
If you follow in their tracks,
You will find little droppings from their cracks.
Round and white, so sweet and light,
Eat one, eat two and have sweet dreams tonight! 

Santa came and went last night

Traveling on his worldwide loop
Because you weren't so good this year
You get no coal, just snowman poop
Round and white, so sweet and light
Eat some and have good dreams tonight! 

Santa looked at his list,

Even checked it twice.
And he has seen that you
have not been very nice.
Since coal's so expensive,
Here's the scoop,
Santa's filling your stocking

You’re been bad,
So here’s the scoop.
All you get for Christmas
Is Snowman poop!

Happy Stamping!!!

Super duper cute! One more thing I'd love to make before Christmas. I guess I'll have to take a week of vacation and get crafty! Thanks for the inspiration!
