Stamp Simply - Christmas Morning

Do you fill stockings for Christmas?  I have stitched cross stitch stockings for each of my family members and one of our favorite Christmas traditions is getting up early Christmas morning and opening our stockings around the Christmas tree,  It's usually still dark, so the lights on the tree are lit and it is cozy and Christmas-y.  Here are most of the stockings I've stitched ...

So it's no wonder that I had to ink up this wonderful Just-Rite set from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for today's card!  I stamped the "Toy Emporium" stamp in a grey ink onto a piece of paper from Kaisercraft's St. Nicholas pad, then attached it to another piece of patterned paper with a zigzag stitch.  I went over the stamped image with a damp brush to soften it just a bit, then watercolored my stocking image which was stamped in Palette Noir on watercolor paper.  I attached my pretty embellished bow to the card before putting it on the card base, then added my stocking with some 3d foam squares, along with a couple of rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your Stamp Simply shopping list is below!!
