Happiest Holiday Collection Day four: Fully Stocked

Morning! Welcome to day four of the Happiest Holiday collection release. Today is the fun Fully Stocked set to share with you. Missed any of the sneak peeks so far? Head back over to the Power Poppy Blog and catch up, you don't want to miss any of these new stamps. 



Marcy's inspiration behind Fully Stocked set is over on the Power Poppy Blog. Here is a snippet for you: Folks, I could draw stockings every day, different themes, different patterns, different styles, all stuffed with goodies. Do you know HOW HARD IT WAS to narrow this down to only three? The stocking struggle is real. Luckily, each of these special stockings was carefully curated, decorated, and trimmed to the nines. Plus they're fully stocked and each one comes with a coordinating accent image. We have a gardener's dream with a journal, tools, tags, and trimmings, complete with mistletoe accent stamp. A vintage European-style linen stocking has sleigh bells, greens, gifts, and a pretty pear. Accent this one with the greenery-topped bell. Lastly, give the gift of childhood with the button-and-appliquéed stocking, filled with kid-centric delights. A group of buttons makes a nice background stamp. Three scripty sentiments work with all of the illustrations beautifully. 


Is this stocking for the kids not adorable? Those buttons alone make me smile and I added two tiny real ones for this gift tag. The homespun Christmas feel of the designer paper seemed perfect for this stocking also from the My Minds Eye Cozy Christmas pad. I used Lil Inkers stitched rectangle dies for the tag layers. Cut around my stocking to pop it up on dimensionals and added a sentiment tag with another tiny button. Then some ribbon and twine button combo.  Oh and some sparkles was added to the stocking also. Voila!
