Snowflake Stocking for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps, and a very warm welcome to my new followers.

 Just popping in to tell you that the lovely Leonie Pujol is launching some new stamps and embossing folders tonight at 8pm on Hochanda. I don't have any samples from the new launch to show you as I am still on a break following my elbow op. However I have it on good authority that the new products will go very well with the Christmas Entwined Dies :D

This is one of the samples I made for the launch of the dies

To start off I blended some Peeled Paint distress ink over a 7"x7" piece of Sheena's stamping card, then flicked a wet paintbrush over it and blotted with kitchen towel. I stamped the stocking border stamp over the card several times using black Memento ink and then stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Greetings set onto a scrap of white card and cut it up. I drew lines on with a black fineliner so it looks as if the sentiment is hanging from the stocking washing line.

To do the stocking I used Leonie's Snowflake Base Die to cut some snowflakes from off-white card, and glued  them onto burgundy card stock

I then cut this into a stocking shape using a Sizzix Bigz die

and ran it through my ebosser with a Sizzix embossing folder called 'Happy' to get a knitted effect

I've finished off with some adhesive gems and velvet ribbon.

My teamies Nick Roberts, Jane Royston, Elaine Mellor, and Natalie Ellis
will be blogging some of their makes at 8pm tonight to coincide with the launch.

 Leonie will also be back on Hochanda tomorrow (Thursday 6th October) at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm.
You can watch Hochanda live online, Sky channel 663, Freeview 85 or Freesat 817.
