Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Sweet Little Stockings Card

Hi Stampers, Well it is time to start my Alternate Monday share again.

What is Alternate Monday???  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Stockings Card:


The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Cherry Cobbler 4 x 5-1/4

DSP panel: Sweet Stockings 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Thin mat: Cherry Cobbler: :cut to fit around the Stocking Die

Embossed piece: Basic White die cut from the Stocking Die and them embossed with the Tasteful Textile EF

Die cut stockings of your choice from the piece of Sweet Stocking DSP and the coordinating die from the Stocking Dies

The Details:


  • Stamp the dog, candy cane, gift, and Santa hat onto Basic White card stock with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Color in the images with your Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Cherry Cobbler: hat, candy cane and strips on package
  • Old Olive: ribbon on package
  • Cinnamon Cider: puppy
  • After you color in your images use the  coordinating dies from the Stocking Dies to die cut the images out
  • Die cut the holly, berries and star with the Jolly Felt using he dies from the Stocking Dies

The Sentiment:


  • Stamp the “Sending Lots of Love” sentiment from the Sweet Little Stocking stamp set with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Die cut the sentiment using your paper trimmer to 3/8 x 3

Putting the card together:


  • Adhere the DSP to the Cherry Cobbler mat and attach to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the Embossed piece to the Cherry Cobbler mat and attach to the right, front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach your two stocking to the embossed panel with liquid glue
  • Attach the dog on to  the left stocking with Dimensionals glue the Santa hat to his head with glue
  • Attach your package and candy cane inside the right hand side stocking with liquid glue
  • Attach the sentiment to the bottom of the embossed panel with Dimensionals

Finishing Touches:


  • Glue the felt holly and berries to the Santa hat on the puppy and the right hand side of the right stocking
  • Attach a Bumblebee felt star to the left hand side stocking and you are done
