Just Add Ink #44 - Santa's Christmas Stocking

Hi there,
Today's post is for the Just Add Ink Colour challenge this week.  I missed last week's deadline for the Just Add Christmas so I have combined the two challenges in this week's colour challenge.  Last week I made a card but I wasn't really happy with some of the elements, so if I am able to resurrect it I will add it as a post later.  I need some Gift Card holders for Christmas so I found a fun template I down loaded from Claire Brennan last year at called Bitty Stocking Gift Card Holder. I made two stockings, only to realise in daylight that one of the retired Designer Papers is Old Olive and not Wild Wasabi, don't you just hate that!! Anyway I have included it as an alternative way to decorate the stocking. 

Stamps: Contempo Christmas
Card and Papers: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Apple Cider DSP (R)
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Embellishments: Crystal Effects, Chocolate Chip Grossgrain Ribbon, Stitching, Eyelet
Tools: Big Shot, Provo Craft Argyle EB Folder, S/U Small Oval Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch (R), Scallop Trim Border Punch, Embossing Tool, Sponge, Sewing Machine, Thread, Dimensionals, Scissors, Crop-a-dile, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Stamps: Vintage Labels (R)
Card and Papers: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Background DSP (R)
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Taylored Expressions Mini Crystals, Chocolate Chip Stitched Ribbon
Tools: Big Shot, Provo Craft Houndstooth EB Folder, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scissors, Mini Glue Dot, Dimensionals, Boho Blossom Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Jones Gloop Glue, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch
Thanks for stopping by today.  I have some more projects to post when I have time to process them. Catch up soon.
