Inky Divas Blog Hop- Big Shot

Hi and welcome to our second monthly "Inky Divas Blog Hop"! I'm so blessed to have such fabulous stampers in my group that I thought it was about time to showcase some of them through a blog hop!

Each month on the second Friday of the month, I will host a blog hop with a specific theme. This month, we've chosen: Big Shot projects!

The project I wanted to show you uses one of my favourite new dies for the Big Shot called the Holiday Stocking Die (Item #124098)

This is one of the projects we made at my last card class…it's super easy and super fun!  
You can use it as a gift card holder OR even a cute candy cane holder! This die is quite versatile and can also be made into a card! Since our dies can be used with over 50 different materials…it's super easy to create a fabric stocking with it!

Whisper White Cardstock 100730 , Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper 124002
Accessories: Big Shot 113439, Holiday Stocking Die 124098, Snow Burst Textured Embossing Folder 124096, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon 109034, Mini Silver Brads 122941, Dazzling Details 124117

  1. Use the Big Shot to cut the stocking pieces from the DSP and the accent pieces using Whisper White CS
  2. Adhere the 2 stockings back to back using snail adhesive (I actually used a bit of Tombow multi-purpose glue around the edges)
  3. Place the whisper white CS pieces through the Big Shot using the Snow Burst Embossing Folder.
  4. Poke a hole in one of the white tops and curl a small piece of red ribbon and attach using the mini silver brad.
  5. Adhere all white accent pieces to the stocking and add Dazzling Details Glitter to middle of all snowflake and let dry.
  6. You can now use this adorable holder as a gift card holder or to hold candy canes!


Thanks for joining me and I hope you enjoyed this card! Make sure you go check out the next stamper on this Blog Hop!

  1. Great looking stocking, Josee. I haven’t tried it with DSP, or fabric yet, which I will have to try, now that I’ve seen your great idea.

We Love to Hear From You
