Well I've been holding off but I can't do it any longer. I LOVE these cards. They're my absolute favorite. They're non-traditional colors, plus they're my awesome new PTI!
I suppose I've had the stocking stamps for a year, but the die was new from Laural and I loved these cards that I made for some very special friends.

These cards hold a special place in my heart since the first one I created was for the super friend who gave me the die =) and the second was for a non-traditional color master friend! Unfortunately, I'm not sure when they'll actually make it to their recipients, but I did want to show what can be done with completely non-traditional colors. I mean, really - Basic Gray, Basic Black, Crumb Cake & Elegant Eggplant? How much farther from a traditional Christmas can you get?

No matter what, I love 'em and I hope you'll give this beautiful color combo a try, too! It's great for any occasion! Afterall, this was a color combo from the Curtain Call Challenge Act 58 = but I didn't have Concord Crush, so I replaced it with Eggplant!

What do you think? Win??!!

No matter what, my day was a win. Shelly & I delivered Santa's Anonymous presents, made an Edmonton Humane Society drop off from the treat exchange gifts and still had time to have productive evenings (MrP & I hosted two other pairs of friends!) A fabulous day by all accounts!


  1. win, win, win, win!!!! Oh wow!!!! Tanny, these are over the top amazing!!!!! Those colours were made for this card!!!! heheheheh, thanks for the sneak peek!!!! I have a lovely spot on the mantle for it when it arrives.....really stunning...that sentiment set is just gorgeous and the stockings are perfectly hung :)

  2. You have done a fabulous job with these colours! Just love the row of stockings and I can see why you love this card so much. Totally adorable :) Glad you had a fun day too :)

  3. LOVE these cards!!! That deep purple is just gorgeous with the gray...So rich and elegant! Yay...and the popped up stocking is the bomb :)

  4. I got my totally gorgeous non traditional card in the mail last week. It looks fabulous sitting at my window cill. Do you mind if I Case next year? I only made a couple of stocking cards this year but love using that die!! I'm so glad you got such wonderful use out of it. Have a very Merry Christmas Tanis!

  5. Tanny, these cards are out-of-this-world, fabulous, magnificent....I could keep going!!!! WOW!!!! I completely ADORE this color combo and the layout. I am definitely going to CASE this one!
