Christmas Accessories

We want to thank all of you who have participated in our current challenge at  My Grafico Crafts . The good news is that if you were too busy to post last week, you still have this week. Our current challenge is: Dinner/Cleaning.
Our feature this week will help set a “Christmas-y” mood. Christmas Accessory Stamps by Dilek Design Studio are great for card making, gift wrapping, or any other project you are working on this Christmas season. I was so excited because I had so many ways to use these. I am sure you will be seeing some of these in future posts too. 

I chose to use a Christmas tree and one of the stocking images in this project.
 The Christmas tree is layered as well as the three stockings. You can see them better in the next picture.

This is a side view so you can see the dimension.
This was such an easy project. The adorable images and the delightful DP worked so well together. The stockings were paper pieced then glittered on the cuff and edges of the socks. The tree also has some red glitter and bling from a gelly roll pen. (Love these Pens!!) The sentiment was stamped in gold ink and backed with DP. Finally the bow was made using my new bow maker!! I can't wait to put someone's special gift into this bag:)

I couldn't resist making an ornament too. The holly was paper pieced too. I chose to cut the slit in the leaves to make it 3 Dimensional.  I used red glitter on the holly berries and some red bling. All of this was layered on a purchased snowflake. The bow was again made using my new bow maker! So simple, yet to elegant.
