#CyberMonday deals and another card using Hang Your Stocking and Christmas Stocking dies.

Today is the last day of the Online Extravaganza offers from Stampin' Up! and they are going out with bang! These four items are a bargain with brilliant discounts and they are in addition to all the other products that have been available all week. I love the Flurry Of Wishes bundle and the magnetic platform is great value today too! These offers are only valid until 10.30pm tonight though so hop over to my SHOP to order *whisper* or send a loved one a gentle hint (share this post) that you would prefer crafting supplies instead of socks this Christmas!
So, I still have a few more projects with the Hang Your Stocking stamps and matching dies so purchase them (separately) today for the best discount, links at the end of this post.
**To see the rest of the cards in this series please go HERE**
To achieve this look I stamped the stocking with White Craft Ink three times onto crumb cake card. Cleaned the stamps and over stamped in Perfect Plum, Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party.
TIP: Remember to clean the stamp thoroughly after every over-stamp, even if you are stamping the same color, to avoid white ink in your coloured ink pads.
This sentiment was stamped in the same way and is included in the Hang Your Stocking stamp set. Love the new stitched edge framelits and that they match our scallop circles for easy layering.
I added torn strips of paper from the This Christmas DSP which upon first glance is mostly a traditional colour palette but not so much when used for today's card, right?
I was really happy with this card and enjoyed making a DL card for a change, what do you think?
And here's a quick reminder of all the other great offers that also finish today...

A 'Hang Your Stocking' Shaker Card

I have my very favourite style of card for you today, a Shaker Card! I have made so very many and I still love both making them and the end results ;-) If you have no idea where to start with a shaker card I made a video tutorial HERE using balloon dies but the steps are the same. If you have any questions or wish to see a new video then please do give me a shout!
So, onto this new shaker card. This card is part of a mini series I have had running this week which happens to coincide with a couple of special offers from SU! More HERE and HERE, TIP: Purchase these stamps and dies separately for the cheapest deal 'till the 28th Nov '16. You can see all the posts in this mini series HERE.
So, back to today's card. I used both the stamps and dies to make mini stockings that were either stamped, heat embossed or die cut from glimmer paper for inside the shaker section and teamed them with the This Christmas DSP from the Annual catalogue to make this card...
I die cut the hole using the largest scallop circle die in the circles framelits set as I wanted a good sized window for my shaker.
TIP: To prevent the stockings sticking behind each other (and not 'shaking') add a couple of dimensionals to the rear of each stocking but did not peel the backing off.
This sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking set, I changed up the layout and used the scalloped oval at the front with a pain oval behind for a different look.
Add a touch of gold glitter paper across the bottom topped with Gold natural ribbon and we're done!
Well, I hope you enjoyed todays shaker card as much as I did making it? And I hope you give it a go!
