BIG SHOT BLOG HOP!

Greetings, and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Big Shot Blog Hop! We are featuring some of the wonderful things you can do with this AWESOME tool. After you see the fabulousness, you're gonna want one of your very own, and you can get one for FREE - just ask any of the bloggers on this hop how!!!

I am stop #16 (of 18) and if you are following the hop in order, you just landed here from Tanya's page, where she is featuring the Buttons #5 Die. (Click HERE for the complete list.)

My Big Shot accessory is the Holiday Stocking Die. I love everything about Christmas, and just had to have this die as soon as I saw it! And my first project is a Christmas card (what else?)!
As you can see, the die cuts the stocking, cuff, toe and heel pieces which makes it fun to mix and match. (See those tiny gold bells? I magically turned the silver Mini Jingle Bells into gold. Come back Monday to learn how!)

The next project can be either a gift for someone naughty or nice, or an ornament to decorate a door or tree.
It's fun to use non-traditional colors sometimes, and using Pool Party for Christmas just made me giggle. One doesn't usually associate swimming pools with Christmas.....well, unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere!

My last project shows that this stocking die can be used for more than just the holidays. Here is an adorable baby bootie card that could be used as an announcement, baby shower invite, or a congratulations card.
I've even seen this die turned upside down and made into a stick horse! I had lots more ideas, but ran out of time, so be sure to check back periodically. I may just wow you with this Holiday Stocking Die in the near future!

Thanks for stopping by! Up next is Adriana's blog. She's featuring the Stocking Accents Die, the companion for this one!








This blog hop was organized by the good folks at Stampin Addicts, a friendly forum for folks fond of Stampin' Up! Come join in the mayhem...I mean, fun and creativity!  It's open to demonstrators and and regular stampers - anyone that loves Stampin' Up! Pssst! Be sure to check out the gallery when you're there!
