Nested Stockings

Where did the summer go? 

Kids are back in school, with all the insanity that goes with it, vacations are a not-so-distant memory, and it is once again time to get busy with the important things in life...crafting for the holidays! 
Yay! 
All of September the Dream Team will be featuring all the new goodies we have for the "Most wonderful time of the year", the fall and winter holiday season. 
New stencil designs, new dies, and...brand new embossing folders featuring some of our top-selling designs, all to be found on-line through the Stencil with Style web-site, or your local papercrafting store.
Here's my holiday inspiration for this week featuring the new nested stocking dies:


The sentiment was created with LL3047-Happy Holiday stencil.

I mixed a little Fern Green Archival Ink into my embossing paste to create the color.


These three stockings were cut from velvet paper.
The sentiment is from Stampendous stamps.


For my final card, I created the background with the new LX7026 Cheveron Stencil with the left over tinted paste from the top card.

I die cut the stocking out of glitter paper.  
The top part was cut out of double sided sticky paper and covered with flock.


Of course, we have our monthly challenge for you to play along, so post your own holiday creations, and use the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month. We also have our fabulous Guest Designer for the month of September,Wendy Price
Here's the list of our "B" Team with their links for the week:
