Introducing Stocking Prints

With the popularity of both Heart Prints and Star Prints, I thought it would be fun to incorporate the concept of multiple patterns into something for the holidays.  After analyzing a few different themes that you might not see much in the stamping industry, I decided to focus on the classic holiday icon, the Christmas stocking.

Stocking Prints is a collection of mix & match stockings and cuffs, with the stockings featuring two different sizes along with a variety of patterns.

The details.

  • Stocking Prints will be available for purchase on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • It contains a total of 27 images (12 stockings, 5 cuffs, 1 decorative loop and 9 sentiments)

Now, how about we continue where we left off yesterday!  More quick & simple holiday cards!

Red & black card

This striking Pure Poppy & true Black combination is so vibrant & festive!  I just love it!  The focal point uses one of the small stockings and the stitched cuff, both stamped in Pure Poppy.  The sentiment is stamped on top of the stocking using True Black ink. 

Focal point closeup

Now, did you notice the framed label I stamped everything on?  I
actually made it from scratch myself using another one of our new
releases, Vintage Labels.  It's a border set designed to coordinate
with the Labels One dies from Spellbinders.  I will go into more depth about them later this week, but if you still yearn for a bit more, you can stop by the Creating Keepsakes blog today where I am being featured as their guest blogger.  My post with them outlines a couple quick & easy tutorials using Vintage Labels that I think you'll want to check out!

Trimmed ribbon

Underneath the focal point, I layered True Black Stitched Ribbon underneath True Black Gingham Ribbon.  Both layers were adhered with Scor-tape and trimmed evenly with the edge of the cover to avoid bulkiness.  Many of our ribbons are of such a great quality, they won't fray when trimmed this way!

For the interior, I stamped a sentiment from Holiday Wishes using Pure Poppy ink.  I added two small decorative flourishes from Vintage Labels on either side of the sentiment using True Black ink.


The borders included in Vintage Labels are perfect for adding to the front of an envelope, framing where the address will be written.  This white A2 envelope was stamped with the same dotted border that I used on my card using Pure Poppy ink.


Not only do the cute little cards above come together quickly, they are also budget friendly, coming in at only 50-cents each for the consumable supplies! 

Stocking lineup card

This project uses a color scheme that is a bit more nontraditional for a holiday card.  Smokey Shadow, Aqua Mist & Fresh Snow.

Stocking stamp

This particular card is SUPER easy to mass produce because you can assemble all of the stocking images on one block together.  This allows you to stamp the entire cover with one impression!

Focal point closeup

The sentiment, also from Stocking Prints, is stamped in Smokey Shadow ink.  I like how it nods slightly to the popular silver metallics that are so popular during the holidays, without having to go to all the trouble of actually heat embossing.

Ribbon edges

Just like the card above, I cut this Fresh Snow Velvet Ribbon so that is even with the front of my card.  The 1/4" Scor-tape we carry is perfect for adhering the ribbon into place securely.


(click on above image for larger view)

The interior uses another sentiment from Holiday Wishes, stamped in Smokey Shadow.  The upper portion of the interior block is stamped with Polka Dot Basics II using Aqua Mist ink.  A bit of the same Fresh Snow Velvet Ribbon is adhered in place as a border.


I stamped a single stocking with Aqua Mist ink in the the lower right corner of the coordinating white A2 envelope.


This card is bit more pricey than the others I have shown this week because of the elegant addition of velvet ribbon, but still comes in way under a $1!

Flourished card

(click on above image for larger view)

I've always loved plum & cream together and I thought they would be perfectly suited for a holiday card.  Plum Pudding, Vintage Cream & Classic Kraft.  To start, I stamped the large flourish from Fancy Flourishes three times on the kraft card cover using Vintage Cream ink.  I rounded the lower corners using a corner rounder punch.

Focal point closeup

The stocking was stamped using Plum Pudding ink on Rustic Cream cardstock.  I paired the small striped stocking and the star cuff to build the image. The stripes looked as though they needed a little something, so I added some Stickles to give the project a bit of shimmer & shine.  After the Stickles dried, I gut the stocking out.  I purposely made sure the exterior outline of these images were kept simple so they would be easy to cut out.


(click on above image for larger view)

The interior uses, yet again, Holiday Wishes.  This time stamped in Plum Pudding on Rustic Cream cardstock.  I stamped some of the star border from Around & About Sentiments on either side of it using the same ink.  Small dabs of Stickles finish it off.


For the coordinating Rustic Cream A2 envelope, I carried the stars & Stickles over to the flap of the envelopes.  I think it's such a nice touch!


This project is super economical, only requiring 35-cents worth of product.  Perfect for those who make dozens upon dozens of cards!

Single scarlet stocking card

Last, but certainly not least is one last project that uses a single stocking as it's focal point.  I figured with so many nontraditional color schemes floating around, I would get back to the basics with this project.

Focal point closeup

The base of the stocking is stamped with Scarlet Jewel (sigh……don't you LOVE the pattern on this stocking?!?!)  with the cuff being stamped in Ripe Avocado.  The sentiment is added underneath in Dark Chocolate. 

Embossing closeup

Instead of ribbon, I added a strip of Ripe Avocado cardstock that features a score line down the center as an accent.  The Scarlet Jewel background mat was embossed with a new QuicKutz Embossing Folder entitled Retro Diamonds, which I love!


The interior features one of Dawn's new sentiments from her set, Signature Christmas.  It's stamped in Dark Chocolate ink.  I added the punched leaves (Martha Stewart) and berries (1/4" hole punch) underneath the sentiment as a pretty accent. LOVE THIS!!!!


For one last finishing touch, I stamped the large flourish from Fancy Flourishes onto the matching Vintage Cream A2 envelope.  I love how the flourish seems to *creep* up the back and onto the front of the envelope. 


This card worked out to be another bargain at only 35-cents each to create!

    As a child, my Mom hung our Christmas stockings along the mantel. Each stocking had one of our names embroidered on it. It was a tradition that I have maintained with our children today.

    Your stocking set and samples are absolutely fabulous! Thank you for sharing your creativity!

    What a darling set! Love your coordinating envelopes as well. My memory of Christmas stoickings: I did not getting “stocking stuffers” instead my stocking was filled with oranges, apples, nuts and a candy cane. (Can you tell I’m not a 30-something! : ) )

    My sister and I had very utilaritian stockings that we hung up each Christmas Eve-my dad’s khaki green army socks! Several decades later-my sister and I still spend Christmas Eve and morning together, have prettier stockings, and take turns filling the stockings before going to bed.
    This stocking set and your samples are wonderful!

    Well, I don’t actually remember this, but Mom has the stocking. I was born very close to Christmas, and Mom said that the hospital sent me home wrapped up in blankets and cuddled inside this big red and white stocking. So as you can see, I love stockings!!! πŸ™‚

    Oh the stockings are just awesome – love the damask one, the polka dotted one…well, all of ’em. My stocking was my favorite Christmas decoration when I was a kid – my grandma made it from one of those pieced felt kits with sequins and such — so cute!!

  • 25
    Joan E. says:

    Fabulous cards. It is my husband’s job to fill the children’s stockings. They never know what to expect from his eclectic taste. Even though they are now adults, they still said it would not be Christmas without Dad’s unusual gifts.

    I wasn’t sure about this set from the beginning…was thinking it was too non-traditional….but now I see just how traditional it can be. And where did the Fresh Snow velvet ribbon come from? I must have missed the memo – – that is perfect for wintery cards; need to get me some of that this month too!

    Laurie Gelo says:

    What an adorable set. I love all the different stocking images we have seen so far. I can’t wait to see the set in it’s entirety.

    My fondest memory of stockings in the anticipation on Christmas Eve of each one of us kids hanging our stocking at the mantel just before we would head off to bed. Then we would anxiously wait for the magical arrival of Santa during the night. Only to come downstairs in the morning and see each stocking filled to the brim with a candy cane and a stuffed animal adorning the top. Oh what a great memory from so many years ago.

    Barb W says:

    Love the stockings set. My sister and I always woke to full stockings of little things that we needed, wanted and little extras as a treat. For my husband and my first Christmas together, I did a special stocking for him, with little ‘treats’ and he was amazed. This was something new for him. Both of our daughters have grown up with this tradition and look forward to it every year. Their stockings were always the first thing to check out when they woke up on Dec 25, and still is to this day. (Oh yea, they are 19 and 20 πŸ™‚

    Regina M says:

    When I was a little girl, my parents took me to pick out my own stocking, saying I could have any in the store. Of course, I went straight for one that was three feet long (bigger than me at the time!) This set brings back a lot of wonderful memories of a very full stocking and a fretting mother trying to figure out how to fill it!

    CherylQuilts at SCS says:

    My mom always filled our stockings with fun things to keep us occupied long enough for mom and dad to get a bit more sleep. She and my dad would stay up all night putting up the tree, decorating it, and gathering all the gifts under it. They would be tired and needed more sleep…so our stockings were stuffed with treats, slinkies, and other toys to keep us busy until we could stand it no more and wake them up…mom and dad are gone now, but that’s what I have in mind when I see these. I love these stockings! (She always stuffed an orange at the bottom of each stocking! Sometimes that was hard to get out…ha-ha…ya think she knew that?!?!). Thanks, Nichole!

  • 96

    Very cute set. I love all the stocking styles. My favorite stocking memory comes from my grandmother. When my brother, sister and I were very young, grandma would sent a huge box at Christmas time. There was always 3 huge stockings in the box with the other gifts. These were the store bought varity made out of a red mesh type material. But, they were very large and filled with the most amazing things. All kinds of little trinkets and toys. Those stockings were my favorites. Thanks for the opportunity.

    This is a must-have set! Stockings are such a warm and cozy image. And the vintage labels set looks interesting, too. Can’t wait to see more of that one!

    Dana says:

    I was not going to purchase any holiday sets this season as I don’t send Chritmas cards, but the kraft and Plum Pudding card has totally changed my mind! I can’t wait to re-create this gorgeous card and send it to everyone I’ve ever met! How do you do it Nichole? I’m in awe of your stamp designs…

    Such pretty stockings. One of my favorite things about Christmas is hanging Christmas Stockings.

  • 112
    Erin Mattson says:

    It’s hard to think about Christmas, but these stockings do bring back wonderful Christmas memories. As adults, going back to my parents house for Christmas, we still hang our stockings on the mantle, and it is one of the best parts of Christmas morning!!

    I am really loving all of the sneak peaks so far! This stocking set seems like the perfect set to use for mass producing my Christmas cards this year. And with the great sentiments from the Holiday wishes set I will definitely have a cartful on the 15th.

  • 119
    Debbie Griffin says:

    I love opening our stockings on Christmas Eve. It’s just enough to take the edge off the kiddos excitement so they can sleep, but it provides a bit of foreshadowing of what lies ahead on Christmas morning! I love what you did with the flourishes creeping from the front to the back of the envelope! Looks so polished and professional!

  • 120
    Laurie P. says:

    I love both the stocking prints & fancy flourishes sets! As kids, we always looked forward to the treasures in our stockings first thing Christmas morning – other presents couldn’t be opened till after breakfast! I’m really looking forward to the fun and beautiful cards that can be made with these sets. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

    Melissa sibert says:

    I love the stockings!!!!! So pretty, simple, and elegant. Wow! Again you wowed us with simple but classy cards today. Thanks.

  • 122

    OMG…this set is so gorgeous! All the samples were so inspiring. I love Christmas stockings as they are a classic symbol of the season. For me they conjure memories of large family Christmas’ at my grandparents home. One year we had an old fashioned Christmas with all handmade decorations, popcorn & crandberry garland. Handmade candles instead of twinkling lights. We used oil lamps versus electricity and we reminded of the true meaning of the holiday season. It is my most cherished Christmas of all.

  • 123

    You’re making me excited to start those Christmas card creations soon! Love the sweet stocking images – they make simple, yet great cards! Thanks for sharing!

    Stockings, and what’s inside them, are one of the best things about Christmas morning! What a great idea to make this into a stamp set, so we can make cards out of this icon!

  • 126
    Rhonda M. says:

    The stockings are great! I love that there are two sizes and that that you can mix and match the cuffs! I love heart prints and star prints and am glad to see a holiday version. I’m sure it will become a classic PTI set! Thanks!

  • 127

    Jerri K says:

    I love the cards you have designed with the stocking set. The sentiments are great also. I love the inside of the cards.

  • 129
    Julia Aston says:

    I love the stockings Nichole and the wonderful outlines that fit in the Nesties – what a great design! your samples are super as usual – Stockings always bring me back to my childhood when we always found an orange tucked into the toe after we took all our treats out – I later found out that the tradition of getting an orange was an especially wonderful treat to get in the winter when they weren’t in season – who knew!

  • 130
    Misti says:

    Beautiful projects!!!

  • 131
    Kristine says:

    I love your projects, Nichole!! I still have the crocheted stocking my Mom made for me when I was very little! Can’t wait for the 15th!!

  • 132

    My girls have personalized stockings that I adore. I think I treasure them more than my girls do! Your stocking projects are beautiful!

  • 133
    Carmen says:

    Love the cards! I didn’t grow up with the stocking tradition, but being a kid, I thought that it was such a cool thing. Now I hang stockings for all of us, but most of the time I only put one or two little things inside the ones for the kids.

  • 134
    Rachel says:

    The stocking set is just sooooooo cute! I love how you incorporated “non-traditional” Christmas colors in your cards. Such fun and inspiring! πŸ™‚

  • 135
    Cammy says:

    Oh, this is fabulous! You are really putting me in the holiday spirit. I always loved the fun little gifts that would be in my stocking as a kid. Now, I get to fill the kids with fun things.

  • 136
    Jennifer M. says:

    I love this concept, love the samples too. Great work.

  • 137

    What a beautiful set, I love all the mix and match possibilities.

    My grandmother knit me the coolest Santa stocking when I was a kid. If you pushed his nose it would light up and play “Santa Claus is coming to town” and she couldn’t fit my full name Jackie so it says Jacky and I absolutely LOVE it, I still use it every year and it is one of my favorite things about Christmas.

  • 138
    Kim says:

    Love all the projects you made with the stockings. Definitely some quick and easy cards with these.

  • 141
    Jill says:

    I love the beautiful and simple Holiday cards! Great inspiration!

    Stockings remind me of tip toeing downstairs on Christmas morning full of excitement to check out what Santa had left for us. Our stockings, and the treats inside, kept us content while we waited for everyone in the house to get ready for the main event of opening presents.

  • 142
    Stephanie (steffie1027) says:

    Super cute, simple cards Nichole! Love how you can build your own stocking! As always, fabulous work! I always saved my stocking for last when I was a kid…there was always nice jewelry in it!

  • 143
    Sarah A says:

    Very very nice. Again very elegant. Love the projects you did. I can already feel Christmas around….

  • 148
    Jennie C says:

    Stocking Prints AND Fancy Flourishes?! Could life get much better than this? I sooo love fancy flourishes, and the stockings are delightful and very easy to use. One of the coolest things about having a set focused on one image, like stockings, is that you can easily do a card that has multiple stockings, each with a different look, and they all are so coordinated that it looks like you have a single stamp with lots of stockings on it. It’s so fun!

  • 149

    I can’t believe we are already talking Christmas cards, but I love it!!!!!!

    glorie says:

    Fabulous cards as always! My first Christmas in North America … my family and I shopped for Christmas stockings as well as hooks … great new tradition for us as a family … we still use those stockings up to today.

  • 151
    liz says:

    I absolutely love how you coordinated the envelopes with the cards. So simple, yet packs a big punch! Stockings in my family are always fun. We do them last and everyone gets lottery tickets. It’s fun to scratch them off and see who all won!

  • 152
    Chrissy L says:

    How cute! Love these stockings! My mom always made our stockings – I have a cross-stiched one with jingle bells on it. It’s always fun to hang all of them up and remember Christmases past!

    Wendy H says:

    I remember always getting fruit and candy in my stocking as a kid :). I think this set is fabulous and I can’t wait to see what else is in store this month.

  • 154

    Super fun set! I love all the samples. I enjoy visiting everyone’s blogs each day. It’s a hop of sorts! Love this time of the month!!

  • 155
    Krissa Brown says:

    WOW! Love the stocking set and it looks great with the fancy flourishes. We still get stockings even though we are in our late 30s and have children that we fill stockings for. My mom has changed it to ‘gift bags’ instead of ‘stockings’ so the kids won’t wonder why grandma is giving stockings to mom & dad and why didn’t Santa leave them at our house? πŸ™‚

  • 156
    Kathyc on SCS says:

    These stockings are adorable and I love the pairing with the flourishes! Even though my kids are grown, their stocking is still their favorite thing to open on Christmas morning!

  • 157

    Seeing all those stockings reminds me of how I made quilted stockings for my family and also each time someone had a baby in our extended family, I would add to their stash of stockings. It got to the point where I couldn’t keep up, so some of the nieces and nephews don’t have one from me. I kind of miss doing that, though. Love this set!

  • 158
    SaraMcJ says:

    I am SO excited about this set!! We just moved to a new state, into a new home, and this year we will actually have a mantel to hang our stockings from! I don’t know who is more excited about that – my kids or me?!?! These stockings are going to be so versatile for all sorts of Christmas projects – I can’t wait!!

  • 159
    annawas says:

    The fun continues! How cute are the stockings! The creative juices are flowing already! Seeing the cute stocking makes me think of mine as a kid hanging over the fireplace, just waiting to be filled! I know love to do the same thing with my kids.

    Sally says:

    The stocking set is beautiful! They have always been one of my favorite parts of Christmas, so fun to fill, and empty,lol

    how awesome! You filled the stocking niche! I’ve been drawing my own for years.
    I think of me sitting on my parents bed on Christmas eve, filling the stockings for my brother and sister. ( I was home from university) My dad comes in and says, “I guess you know about Santa Clause if you’re filling your own stocking!”

    Thanks for giving us stockings!

  • 172
    Chrissy says:

    These stockings are just fab. Our stockings were THE BEST part! I’m not sure we felt the same way back as children. They were always filled to the brim with such great little gifts. (After we were done with them we’d put them on our feet and walk around)
    Looking forward to the 15th!

    I love those vintage labels!!! Just saw you on the CK blog.. Awesome!!!!!

    And the stockings? How fun!!! I am in charge of stockings at our house…and I am a stocking person! My parents made sure we always had stuffed stockings each Christmas – they had oranges, new socks, hair products (as we got older – all girls), fun stuff… no matter how old we were, we had stuffed stockings!!!

  • 181
    Banu H says:

    This looks like another amazing set. The cards that you have created are stunning in their simplicity. They are so elegant and as you said easy to mass reproduce. Cannot wait.

  • 182
    Margaret Peltier says:

    Christmas stocking memories – mom filling them late at night and leaving a new coloring book and new crayons right at the top so that when we got up way to early – we would get the book and crayons and color while giggling – and when we would hear them stirring we would quickly put them back in the stocking and wait impatiently till they got up!

  • 183
    Carol says:

    Oh wow! I just love the stockings!! There are endless possibilities for this set! The stockings remind me of my growing up years, when all our stockings were hung from the mantel on our fireplace. Every month keeps getting better, with all the new stamp sets. Amazing job PTI!!!!

  • 184
    Winnie says:

    Oh the memories associated with stockings! I used to look forward to them so much as a kid! I remember one year my aunt crocheted stockings for each of us 6 kids… We were so excited..Santa filled them up with treats overnight and when we woke up or doberman was sitting in a pile of wool all full from our cookies and treats… Poor aunt’s handiwork!

  • 185

  • 189
    Janet S says:

    When my children were small I knitted them each a Christmas stocking that they hung on the fireplace each Christmas eve for Santa to fill. Now they are all grown and several years ago my son’s house burned to the ground and they lost everything (thank God my son, his wife and 2 children were safe). My oldest daughter called me crying, not about the house burning but “because now Matthew doesn’t have his matching stocking”. She went on to tell me how much it meant to her- the tradition of her and her siblings hanging their stockings for Santa and how now that they were all in their own homes she knew that they all still hung their stockings. I was amazed and never knew how those simple stockings I made so long ago had such a special meaning to her. SO I will be buying the stocking stamp set, and can’t wait to make my cards, thank you.

  • 190
    Jennifer says:

    Great cards, I think the last one is my favorite though. Love what you did with the inside of the card!! Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  • 191
    Amy says:

    We didn’t have a fireplace in the house where I grew up, so we hung our stockings from an armoire in our living room instead. Without a chimney to access, Santa just walked in the front door at our house (and left tracks to prove it).

    Can’t wait to see this set in its entirety!

    Yes – starting to see infinite possibilities. And thanks for simple card examples – its too crazy to mass produce complicated cards, but its nice to make a simple card that still looks as if you care.

    Lovely how the stockings coordinate with “older” sets. And thank you for sharing some non-traditional Christmas color themes, as well as the traditional.

    As for my memory: I’ve often looked forward to the stocking gifts more than the others because those in the stocking tend to be unusual, quirky, and a lot of fun πŸ™‚

    Stockings always make me think of my first Christmas with my sweet husband. For some reason I decided we needed the perfect stockings for our first Christmas and went on this major hunt for them. It kind of makes me laugh to think back on now!

  • 213

    2 years ago, my daughter was 5 and hung up the family Christmas stockings as a surprise. When she showed me I said “How sweet you hung Mummy’s stocking first this year!” (It is usually Daddy first), and in her most innocent voice she said “This year I hung the stockings oldest to youngest!” I could hear my husband roaring with laughter from the other room…well she was right! That little story is one of our favorites!

    Stockings are such a fun tradition in my house. I love to pick out neat treats that can fit inside! My mom always describes the things that go into our stockings as “just for fun!” And they always are! (And yes, I am 33 years old and still get a stocking – I love my mom!)

    The “prints” series of stamps are my FAVORITE! So easy to use and produce stunning results. Stocking Prints is a perfect next addition.

    We always had stockings when I was little, even for the adults. It is such a great tradition. Today my husband and I still put them up along with one for our little doggie! Love watching him go at it. lol My original thought was this would be an easy month for me as I have SO many Christmas stamps, however you have totally proved me wrong…..again! This set is adorable. So far ALL the sets shown will be making their way into my cart.

    Great cards! One of my treasured Christmas decorations is a stocking my grandmother made me and I still use it today. It is a red velvet stocking with black/white pom pom fringe at the top. I have so many Christmas memories as a little girl at her house looking through all the goodies in my stocking.

    Rosemary says:

    Oh, love the Christmas stockings! Growing up I didn’t live in a house that had a fireplace, so we did’t really hang stockings. But, I remember going to Christmas parties put on by my dad’s work and getting what seemed to me the most fabulous Christmas stockings!

  • 256

    When I was a little kid, all the excitement of Christmas Eve culminated when we put the stockings out for Santa. When I got married and had kids I wanted them to feel that same excitement. But instead of classic red stockings, I got my son a dark blue stocking and my daughter a deep burgundy stocking!!!

  • 257
    Yvonne S. says:

    My Grandmother hand made stockings for each member of the family. They are a rich red color with an appliqued snowman on the front. I still hang these stockings each year while remembering all of the wonderful treasures Santa has put in them.

    In our home, we naturally fill the stockings on Christmas eve, after the kids have gone to bed. Then they know that when they wake us up in the morning, they can then go dig into their stockings while we drag oursleves out of bed. That is our tradition, and it buys us sleepy, coffee deprived adults, a few extra minutes! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 273
    Lisa G. says:

    Those stocking are adorable. I love all of the projects presented today. We didn’t have a mantle to hang stocking from so we used the stairs to hang them on. There are five kids in the family plus mom and dad had one. It was so cool to see all seven stockings handing and us kids couldn’t wait to see what goodies Santa left for us.

    My wonderful friend came over from California 18 years ago with a hand knitted and embroidered stocking for me; every year since then I have hung it in my daughter’s bedroom and sneaked in to fill it with goodies for her on Christmas Eve. The stocking is a true lasting memory of friendship.

    Rita says:

    Christmas stockings bring so many memories to mind. My mom stitched handmade stockings for each of her kids (all seven of us). We treasure those now “well-loved” stockings still today…they mean Christmas to each of us! Making “homemade” felt-stitched stockings with my elementary students was a favorite day in my classroom every year. Passing on traditions of homemade-heartfelt love! I am very excited about this stamp set and thank you immensely for making it possible for me to think about ways I can use it to create more memories of love!

  • 296

    I have been so excited to see the releases for this month. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I can’t wait to spread the joy of the season with these amazing Christmas stamps. Nichole, you always come up with the greatest inspiration for every time of the year. Thanks so much!

    Colleen Wold says:

    What another fabulous set! I love how you can mix and match to make so many fun and different stockings!
    Stockings bring back great memories of my brother and I waking up on Christmas morning…we were allowed to open up our stockings together before waking up my parents.

  • 299
    Anne says:

    I love the stockings. My favorite memory of Christmas stockings was in 1965. My husband had lost his leg in Vietnam and the hospital let him come home for Christmas. I knew this Christmas was going to be a lean one. We had four children and the baby was only 9 months old. I got the children ready for bed and I brought the baby out to my husband who was laying on the couch so he could kiss him good-night. When I looked up and out the window Santa was looking in the window. I opened the door and he had a huge bag of toys for the children and a stocking for my husband and me. Someone had arranged for this and to this day I don’t know who. So stockings are a beautiful memory of a mystical Christmas.

    MeShellaBella (aka Michelle) says:

    BEAUTIFUL! I just loved digging out our Disney stockings each year and hanging them up on the mantel. Mainly because all the other decorations were so “formal” that this was the “bit of whimsy” to Christmas as a kid! WONDERFUL sets this month! LOVE ’em!

    Jolene says:

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I am so over the moon IN LOVE with this stocking set!!! I’ve got snowflakes and wreaths and Christmas trees, but stockings?!?! NADA!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!

    I have a (now realized!) fettish for stockings apparently because I think I have about 10 of them for our little family of 4 (5 if you count the dog). I have some from my childhood, the dog has a few, the girls each have one and then I have some that I bought to match the rest of the decor (and I have a few color schemes depending on the mood I’m in that particular year…). This may be a must-have set for me… *sigh*… just like every other set! LOL!

    I’m really appreciating all of the non-traditional color scheme examples as well. Thanks Nichole!!!

  • 326
    Brenda says:

    Another amazing set. I love crafting at Christmas and have already started putting together a few ideas and stamping some focal panels on cardstock to be cut out. Out of all your beautiful sets I love the Christmas ones the most. Stockings in England were not hung by the fireplace, rather they were left at the end of your bed after you’d fallen asleep, so the first memory of every Christmas morning I have is scrabbling about in the dark at the end of my bed with my sister trying to find our stockings!

  • 327
    Tammy W. says:

    I am so excited for this stocking set! Opening my stocking Christmas morning was my favorite part of Christmas! Each year my father (and now my husband) would come up with the most unique, funny, interesting little gifts for our stockings.

  • 344
    Shirlann says:

    Christmas stockings are my favorite holiday decoration and I still get excited to play “Santa” every year! My stocking is from my childhood…yes, back in the 50’s! When quilted plastic was all the rage, red and (antique) white which still has the plastic holly and jingle bell attached. Inside is a letter I have kept from a Christmas when I was 10 years old, asking Santa for a camera. His unmistakeable handwriting in reply telling me that I get my wish as I was such a good girl this year. My dad has passed on, so every year when I hang my stocking I pull the letter out, savor his words, and tuck it back in.

    Stocking were never one of my family’s Christmas traditions. I was always a little envious of my friends who had them hanging over their fireplaces. These stockings are adorable. I love how you can mix & match!

  • 371
    Sarah W. says:

    Love the different designs on the stockings. I used to have a huuuuge plastic stocking that my parents would fill up and lay on their bedroom floor, usually brimming with pressies (we didn’t have a fireplace!).

    Well, I don’t know what I am gonna do…because I LOVE this set to pieces, also, like two more from this release.

    I got my first Christmas stocking when I was 28 πŸ™‚ They weren’t a tradition in my homeland, but my best friend’s mom sent me one from the States! It was purple (my favorite color), full with purple goodies ha ha πŸ™‚

    Isabel Z says:

    I’m in heaven–stockings. One of my favorite things to do at the holidays is to decorate the mantel. I love seeing all 5 of our stockings lined up from oldest family member to youngest. I just love the designs you incorporated into the stocking and can’t wait to see this set in its entirety. My mouth is always open in awe at your creativity. I would have never thought of framing the address and it adds such a nice touch.

    Love this idea… your examples are beautiful. When we were kids, if we woke up early we were always able to open up our Christmas stockings without having to wait for my parents to get out of bed. It was always fun for us…then we waited in anticipation looking at all of the presents under the tree.

    I love Christmas stockings. They remind me of my kids who even now (at 14 and 17), know that after the presents under the tree are all opened, they can still rush to the fireplace and find that little something extra.

    Denean says:

    The stockings are just too cute! Love the cards!

  • 401

    Gorgeous!! Those stockings remind me of my absolute favorite part of Christmas, and that is watching my kids come down Christmas morning and head straight for their stockings! I always filled their stockings with some pretty great stuff – sometimes almost better than their presents. All of these sets will be wonderful additions to my collection!!

  • 402
    Lee Anne says:

    We grew up in a house that had no fireplace, so we hung our stockings in the hallway so that we passed them every day on the way out the door. Occasionally my parents would stick little treats in them before Christmas. My mother loved Christmas and loved to spoil us, so much so that our stocking stuffers were often our favorite presents. She would search an dlook for the perfect stuffers for me and my 2 sisters! What a great set this will be! You are really giving me time for reflection this week!

    Love looking at all your examples – it gets my creative juices going. The coordinating insides and envelopes are so clever; love how this set would be easy to mass produce cards!! Stockings are so special to the Christmas experience – even grown, it is the 1st thing my boys go to. All year long – I look for and purchase odd things to fill their stockings with.

  • 410
    Janis says:

    Christmas stockings are one of my favorite traditions. We never got elaborate…they were filled with candy, gum, small trinkets, and the requisite orange. My most memorable stocking gift is from the year I was nearly 16. Tucked in the toe of the stocking was a key to the family car for my own key ring. It symbolized trust and freedom. I’ll never forget it.
    This looks like a great set, but I have to say I’m SUPER excited about the Vintage Labels set! πŸ™‚

    Cindy Holshouser says:

    Well, this set reminds me of childhood Christmases. Although the tradiition still lives on. My mom made our stockings and they were so gorgeous. I think filling stockings is one of her favorite parts of Christmas. At the very bottom in the toe there was always (and still is) the little cluster of chocolate coins wrapped in shiny gold foil. This set is a beauty:)

    Elizabeth V. says:

    I love your cards today…well, actually every day! I love Christmas stockings! The first Christmas after I was married, my husband surprised me by buying us matching stockings and personalizing them with felt letters. We continued the tradition with our kids and, 24 years later, we still use them. They make me smile every year when I unpack them!

  • 422
    Donette Barry says:

    It’s a beautiful set…I love all the different stockings. I can remember my own stocking as a little girl was very non-traditional in that it was in the shape of “bloomers”…that’s what I got for being the only girl, lol! Thanks so much for the chance to win these fabulous sets!

    These stockings are a long way from my Dad’s socks hanging up on the mantle when I was a kid! We begged my Mom for “fancy” stockings when we got a little older. Isn’t it funny what things are important when you are a kid at Christmas time? And all the little treasures that you can fit inside…

    I loved my stocking growing up – it was one my grandmother made. It was very big and covered with lots of sequin work – straight from the 70’s! Every year, when my mom would get the decorations out, my brother and I would eagerly check our stocking, just in case something was left from the previous year! I love both of these sets!

    These stockings are too cute! Brings back memories of all the Christmases I have loved getting out my very first stocking that my mother lovingly made for me so long ago. Looking forward to the vintage labels, too. They look like they’ll be right up my alley!

  • 437

    I love this stocking set and will be lined up to buy it the minute it comes out! Our family has a great tradition of packing the stockings full of “little piddly” things – keychain flashlights, packs of gum, batteries, erasers, pocket packs of kleenex, and so on. All meticulously wrapped! Opening the stockings brings so much laughter to Christmas mornings – a memory I will treasure forever!!

  • 442
    Natalie S says:

    Oh, I remember the stockings when I was a child. My mom bought the traditional red fuzzy ones with the white cuff. She then put our names on them using white glue and chunky glitter. I bet LOTS of us remember those, huh? The neat thing is that my husband’s family had the same kind and his mom still puts them out each year…filled, of course! πŸ™‚

  • 443
    Roxanne says:

    What I remember and loved most about my childhood christmas stocking was the fact that it was made of a furry type fabric – not exactly sure what the material was. Maybe some type of soft crushed velvet? Anyway, it is the texture I recall most. A dreamy soft feeling that punctuated christmas for me. The Scarlet Jewel color reminds me of the color it was. What a fun and fabulous set. I have heart prints and star prints so I will need this to complete my “collection”! πŸ™‚

    I am loving those stockings! And the Vintage Labels – excellent! Our church always gave one to every child, and they were filled with peanuts, hard candy and an orange. YUMMY! Of course, back then, you could only get fruit when it was in season, so an orange at Christmas time was a big deal.

  • 451
    Valerie says:

    Love stockings. It reminds me of when I was young and we used to decorate our own stockings and everyone had to fill each one with a small gift. We even made one for our dog. Great ideas. Can’t wait to get a hold of this set.

  • 454
    Laura says:

    Love the new stocking set, it brings back wonderful memories from my childhood. I have six brothers and sisters and we would all hang our stockings right above the fireplace. On christmas morning we would all lay in our beds singing christmas carols until all of us were awake. Usually Mom and Dad were the last to join in and then it would be a race to see who would get downstairs the fastest. It was always a suprise what was left in our stockings.

  • 455
    Linzi says:

    Wow, I’d love to have that prize…these are just marvelous stocking stamps; I love the versatility they can bring for several different years to come, even.

    My aunt made me a sequined felt stocking that I still have to this day and I love it…she makes them for all the ‘kids’ and everyone just truly enjoys them.

  • 456

  • 457
    Kristy says:

    This set is so cute! I love all the cards you made, but the very last one (with the scarlet jewel and avocado) is my favorite. While still very simple, it is also quite elegant.

    My parents would always put small gifts in our stockings along with the usual candy and fruit. I especially remember the year I received a pearl ring in my stocking. It is still one of my most treasured objects.

  • 458

    I ADORE stockings!! My Aunt Sandy (who lives in Memphis) lovingly cross-stitched gorgeous, vintage-looking Christmas stockings for my entire family. I hang them on my staircase in my open foyer every year with JOY! I can’t wait to get my hands on this set!

    Thanx, Nichole!

    I’m working on one right now, I cross stitched these elaborate stockings for all the older kids and I’ve been working on one for the youngest child now for two years! Because of course they have to match! I am getting closer to finishing . . . closer . . . so much outlining! Stamping her a stocking would be so much easier! πŸ™‚

    Lovely stockings ! πŸ˜‰ I’m thinking this year will be DD first stocking – she will be 3 1/2. Stockings are one of the most magical parts of Christmas for me – so great that I actually started a tradition of Secret Santa stockings for the grownups in our family at Christmas and it’s now one of the most anticipated events ! I hope my girl loves it at much as I do.
    These projects are just gorgeous – I especially love the last two. thanks for the opportunity ! XX

  • 468

    As usual, great samples! Christmas stockings remind me of my great-aunt who knitted our stockings. They also remind me of the goodies we’d get inside, but there was never any candy because my father was a health freak and wouldn’t allow it. We’d get fruit instead, which was a bummer because I don’t even like oranges! So of course, my kids get candy in theirs, lol!

  • 469

    the stocking is such an icon for me. we always had our pictures taken with it on christmas eve. we lovingly put it on our chairs for santa and it was always the first thing we dug through in the morning. my parents even had their stockings from when they were kids (they were TRUE vintage!) and one year after wondering why santa didn’t fill their stockings, we decided to fill it ourselves. i think we chose a potato, onion and orange. i guess we just dug through the kitchen to find things. what a kid thing to do!

  • 471
    Karen L. says:

    I love this set…all the different patterns for the stockings!! My mother knitted all of our christmas stockings. Each had our name on the top and a different Santa scene. My Santa was standing next to a Christmas tree, she hand- stitched sequins all over the tree. Maybe that’s why I like “bling” so much now!!! Thanks again for the chance to win some great sets.

  • 472
    Steph says:

    I requested a stocking set with different designs and different heel and cuff options so I would absolutly LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win. The stocking with the Star Prints like flourish is devine! We alternate the Christmas holiday between staying home and going to my in-laws house in Indiana. This year we will be in Indiana with the rest of the family and it is soooooo……. much fun. My mother-in-law has bought or made a stocking for each family member as they have come to be a part of the family either through marriage or being born in. LOL With the grandparents, kids, and grandkids, we have a total of 21 stockings!!! They are all hung side by side and we all sneak a little something into the stockings so that on Christmas morning we have a fun goody filled stockings to pour out. It is the first thing we do on Christmas morning. It makes me giddy just thinking about it now. πŸ˜‰

    Elena says:

    I love, love love the stockings! When I was growing up, getting the stockings out that my mom had made for each of us was a special time each year. Hers had gotten discolored when she made it, but to me that just made them all more special for the homemade feel. As an adult, I made stockings for our family when my daughter was a year old, sewing some with names she called the people who received them, which made them special. I was sure to make an extra so that when we added to our family, I could just put the new one’s name on the stocking, which I did when my son arrived. –Elena

    Mollie says:

    I love the colors and detail of the last card! So beautiful!

    Val S says:

    What a great stamp set. I can remember hanging my Christmas stocking and hoping for wonderful things! Our stockings were really small, so usually our Santa gifts were stacked underneath our stockings and the stockings were filled with smaller things like chocolate or little toys. The stockings certainly do bring back wonderful memories!

  • 481
    Amy O. says:

    I LOVE this new set! Stockings are one of the first things that come to mind when I think of Christmas. Every year you knew mom would have an organe, an apple, a new tooth brush, an extra large candy bar and a brand new ornament for us in our stockings. She also had other little treasures tucked in there…but you could always count on the list above. One year I remember my brother and I getting our very own Scotch Tape…because we kept using all of hers! πŸ™‚

    Lisa Bohler says:

    My sister and brother had hanging santas that I’m sure were only available in 1960 something so when I was born in 1970 (surprise to mom and dad) I was the only one to have a stocking!!! Thanks for the memory recall!

    Becs Attwood says:

    Another great set – love how your simple, inexpensive cards still look a million times better than anything store bought. I don’t see anything like my Christmas Stocking though – mine was made for me by my Mum when I was a baby and it’s pale pink with my name & various Christmas images hand embroidered on it – it still comes out every year (30+ years later!!).

    Alice Roushia says:

    I remember as a child, each one of us (3) had our own stocking and each one hung in a certain spot each yr. Then there were 2 very small stockings that my Mother had for my Brother and I when we were little and they hung on each side of the glass mirror cabinet that hung on the wall.

    Thanks for bringing back the memories of great childhood Christmas’s. What an adorable set after seeing some of the items that have been made.

    Brittany says:

    Christmas stockings are a tradition in our house. They were my favorite thing to open up as a child to see all of the fun small gifts that Santa could pack into the stocking. The toe of the stocking is always filled with a tangerine. Now as an adult I create stockings for my family and shop throughout the year for small fun and meaningful gifts to fill the stockings with. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stocking set. Way to go Nichole!

    Wow- I was having trouble “picturing” this set- the cuffs and stockings confused me- yes, I’m blonde! The aqua mist and smokey shadow card helped me see the light- I LOVE the idea of lining the stocking up and stamping away!!!!

    Wow the possibilities for the stockings are terrific. It reminds me of my childhood… the whole family would hang their own unique stocking on Christmas eve. Christmas morning that was the first thing we went for. I have continued that tradition with my family. What fun this stamp set is going to be!

    elaine says:

    Great cards! And I love the stocking stamps. Stockings to me are a way of expressing someone’s character. We have our stockings that display every year, and then I have a “Stocking Tree” that holds the stockings of all of those who are no longer with us that had their special stockings in their day. On that tree are our grandparents and our parents (who have all gone to a better place) and our past pets who have gone to Rainbow Bridge. Each of these stockings has special characteristics of the loved one they belonged to.

    I’ve been hoping for a stocking set for MONTHS! I can’t wait to plop this gem into my cart on the 15th!

    As a kid, my sisters and I would get up in the wee hours of the morning to ransack our stockings (since they were the only things NOT wrapped), then go back to bed until a more reasonable hour to wake our parents.

    Peggy Taylor says:

    When I think of Christmas Stockings, I think of my mom. After I married, she made knit stockings for both of her granddaughters(my daughters). She passed away when they were very young. We will always cherish the memories of this loving mom and grandmama.

  • 524
    Cindy H. says:

    Oh boy, this is definitely going to be a winner in my book! When we were children the stocking was a really big deal. Among the small toys and fun things there was always an orange or walnuts in the toe. My DH and I still have a stocking filled with goodies from Santa – though we don’t get oranges or walnuts, lol. I love the designs on these stockings.

    It is definately Christmas in September!! I’m loving everything. My family has always celebrated St. Nick’s Day in early December. We hang our stockings and hope for something fun.
    When I was young, St. Nick always put an orange in the botton of each stocking…along with other goodies. So guess what my kids get too?
    Love it.

    I remember having handmade stockings when I was growing up. My mom is a sewer and made my brother and I stockings. I had a ballerina shoe/foot/leg where the ballet shoe was pink with pink “ribbon” criss crossing up the leg (if you can imagine that).

    Great cards! Thank you for the price breakdown. I LOVE the flourish on the envelope that creeps up and over to the front!

    Amy says:

    Oh my, you have stamps that go with Spellbinder dies?? I may swoon (well, maybe not, but that is way cool). I remember having a stocking filled with goodies every Christmas morning every Christmas of my life. My Mom still fills our stockings each year, and I’m only 46! Of course, now a package of scotch tape seems to show up most years — I don’t know why, it’s just Mom’s thing.

    Love this set!!! Stockings are one of my favorite memories! I still have the one from when I was a little girl. I have been trying to find “the perfect” stockings for my 3 kids and haven’t found them yet.

    Each card just got better and better! I LOVE traditional Christmas Stockings, this set is definitely on my list! Whenever we pull the stockings out of the decoartion boxes, my kids have to try them on their feet and walk around with them up to the thighs – they are so cute! It’s also sad because each year the stockings get shorter and shorter πŸ™‚

    Love the stockings and the cards! My parents always hung all of their kids (8 of us!) and now the kids’ spouses and grandkids’ stockings on their fireplace for Christmas. There were over 25 stockings! Last year, my parents basement flooded (big time) and all the stockings had to be thrown out. Some of the kids’ stockings were over 40 years old. Thank goodness we have pictures of all the old stockings. They remind us of such great Christmas memories.

    Wow, the more I see of this month’s release the more I need to add to my wishlist… stockings always remind me of mandarin oranges!

One year she forgot and she never heard the end of it from my sister (adult!) – we still joke about it today!

    Stockings always have a funny memory for me…living in Hawaii we didn’t have a fireplace or mantle so we’d always have to find somewhere to hang them from. It’s either a balcony railing, stair bannister or edge of a shelf.

    Malyssa says:

    I still have and use the very same stocking that my mom & dad used my very first Christmas. The stocking was from Santa and I was the only one that had one, so when I was in my senior year of high school, I decided to spread the stocking tradition to include my parents so now ‘Santa’ leaves one for each of them. And I love those stockings because I bought material to match things my mom & dad like(a christmasy gold musical note print on ivory for my mom and a metallic navy and gold stripe to represent everything nautical for my dad!) and made the stockings myself.

    When I see a stocking I remeber the home made one I had all my life. I had gone to a craft fair and picked out a differnet one and when it came to Christmas, Santa accidently filled the wrong stocking with my tings. So my parents told me Santa knows best, this must be your stocking. And to this day I have that same stocking, while my sister has my stocking.

    Linda W says:

    My most vivid memory concerning Christmas stockings is very recent. We had just moved here, everything was very hectic what with moving on Dec.5, trying to sell the other house, unpacking, decorating, baking and planning for the family to all come here with not nearly enough beds. I thought I could get away with not doing stockings for our boys and their spouses, the grandchildren were all taken care of, and regular gifts were wrapped and under the tree. Then came that moment when younger son (27 then) looked at me with those big doe eyes and and said. “Where’s my stocking?” I’ll never forget that and I’ll never not have stockings waiting for everyone. What an awful mother I was.

  • 587

    I started our tradition of hanging stockings when my girls were little. They are young adults now and I still give them stockings for Christmas πŸ™‚

    We usually went to Grandma’s house for Christmas (week long trip) and always to their stockings with us. One year I forgot to pack them. The girls didn’t want to miss out, so we used thier Dad’s long tube socks as a substitute!

  • 598
    Kristina says:

    So fun! I love all of the different patterns. I think my favorite is just the tradition of having the same stocking hanging every year at my grandmother’s house. She handmade each stocking, and personalized them when each grandchild was born. There are so many of us now, the flireplace is really crowded! And there’s always a competition to see who’s stocking makes the top row. πŸ™‚

    I love to watch my kids dump their stockings every year. I always pick up little things throughout the year to stick in their stockings. Sometimes I put a little money or a little pricier gift, but mostly little odds and ends they can use. And I usually wrap each one so when they are done with what’s under the tree, they are still excited to empty their stockings.

    I love stockings! This set is just fabulous! I remember the needlepoint stocking that I handmade for my first child on his first Christmas. That stocking still hangs in my living room each year and my son is now 28 years old.

    Valerie says:

    Love the stocking images and all of the cards you made with them. I won’t be able to resist these on the 15th! Thanks for the chance to win them.

    Diana says:

    What a cute set…brings back Christmas memories when we would set out our empty stockings on Christmas Eve (they were fuzzy red, with a white cuff, and our names stitched in gold). On Christmas morning, we would wake up and find that Santa had filled them with small toys, foil-wrapped chocolates, and an orange.

    The magic still happens at our house…my oldest is 16, and he still delights in a full stocking on Christmas morning!

    Stacy says:

    I love the stockings set! Brings back memories of my own childhood stocking, which was handmade by my great grandmother.

  • 618
    Kim Stevens says:

    I remember my mom making my 6 brothers and sisters and me our very own unique stockings and we would hang them in order by our age on the fireplace mantel. I can’t wait to see this whole set. Have a beautiful day!

    Justine says:

    OK now this has gotten me excited…….. Love the stockings and wow, I just love it. Shopping cart for sure.

  • 620

    All your cards are so inspiring and put me in the holiday mood. Love those stockings!

  • 621
    NancyAF says:

    Am I excited?? YES I AM! Great set!

  • 622
    Julie Hughes says:

    My favorite stocking memory was opening my stockings. We were allowed to open only our stockings without our parents. My sister and I would always wake up early, wake the other one and go down stairs to look in awe at the gifts Santa had brought.

    Rebekah says:

    Oh My!… I just love these cards and those cute stamps!! Thanks for showing a range of ideas and colours!

    CarolLynn says:

    I think of the stockings a friend gave my husband and I for Christmas. Every year when I decorate, I hang these stockings and I am reminded of my first Christmas away from home (I was in the Air Force) stationed in England and newly married.
    Awesome cards–thanks again for the inspiration!

    Michele F says:

    Gorgeous projects! I love the stockings. I know that that will be my go-to set for the holidays this year. They really remind me of our Christmas decor. Our stockings, each a different color, were made by my mother-in-law. They are simple and classic just like the stamps. I love how it looks.

  • 629

    Kristy says:

    Besides the celebration of Christ, I look forward to the stockings more than anything else at Christmas. We have so much fun and we still do stockings for everyone in the family including the grandparents. Thanks for this stamp set. I can’t wait to use it.

  • 632
    Kathy McDonald says:

    Another GREAT stamp set, Nichole! Stockings are my favorite part of Christmas. I knit Christmas stockings for each of my family members, and Mom still hangs them on her bannister every year. I arrive early enough on Christmas morning to add my stocking stuffers to those already there. I look all year for fun things to put in our Christmas stockings.

  • 633
    Marie says:

    What a terrific idea. A multitude of gorgeous stockings. Can’t wait to see the whole set. Again so many possibilities

  • 634
    Debbie says:

    I absolutely love the stockings! Thanks for the inspiration – your designs are beautiful.

  • 635
    Brooke says:

    I am absolutely loving the “special” touches to your cards and envelopes. I’ve just come back from a trip to the market and I was also noting there how the special touches at various stands made some better than others.

  • 636
    Cara says:

    Stockings now make me feel inferior. Ours were simple and great as kids. My husband’s experience was that the stocking should be the most exciting thing on Christmas Day. I let him take care of it, since I can’t live up to his standards.

    Very cute set!

  • 637
    Maria M. says:

    As you promised, your sample projects are simple and elegant. Maybe this year, as I say every year, I will make my own Christmas cards. Hopefully this year is the year it will happen.

  • 638
    AnneSATX says:

    Oh, joy! When I moved into my own home as a young adult, I decided I would collect Christmas stockings to decorate with during the holidays. Every year I buy another special stocking for my collection. The only problem? No one fills them for me! LOL.
    And thank you for showcasing cards that are truly within my ability to recreate! They’re all just beautiful.

  • 639
    Stacy W. says:

    Those stockings are great! I love the look of the non-traditional colors. I am going to have to try those colors.

  • 640
    colleen says:

    I absolutely love what you’ve shown of Stocking Prints! Stockings remind me of being a little girl, when Christmas was always so magical and worry-free. My parents always wrapped the small presents for our stockings so they were truly a surprise, too. And they were filled with nuts and oranges and apples, a tradition from my Dad’s parents. Good memories.

  • 641
    Diane says:

    You’re right–it’s all about simplicity and this set has simplicity and elegance. Thanks for sharing the awesome ideas, again! Diane

    I LOVE these simple, affordable Christmas cards! They are so cute and I’m so glad you chose the stocking as the “icon” to make the 3rd in your series of print stamps! Too cute! Thanks for a chance to win! I had an elaborate stocking knitted for me by a family friend – I still cherish it years later!

  • 643

    I had a handmade stocking from Grandma that eventually split open one year. Guess I got too much candy! I love the stocking stamp set! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I am feeling inspired…. and lucky!


  • 645

    I’ve always used the same stocking since I was a kid, my Holly Hobby patterned stocking. It’s nice and big so it fits lots of presents in it! LOL! Opening stockings on Christmas morning has always been a big deal at our house.

  • 646
    Terri Moore says:

    Cute set. I am especially liking the labels. I look forward to seeing more about them.

  • 647
    Kathy W says:

    I love these stocking images! Great cards to highlight the set. It is tradition that everyone in the house (including pets) has a stocking, and that everyone helps fill everyone else’s sock. That way, it feels Santa came because you don’t know who any one item is from…and no one tells. Stockings are a bigger deal than presents!

  • 648
    Tracy Y says:

    My mom always filled our stockings with “little” packages consisting of jewelry, perfume, nail polish, etc. always lots of girly-girl items and each one was individually wrapped. I love how the images on the various stockings coordinate with other PTI sets!

  • 649
    Joyce C. says:

    Would love to win those two sets! The stockings are simply delightful and the cards are delightfully simple. Great work!

    We always put up our stockings together, the girls look forward to seeing them each Christmas season. I can’t wait to make small sweet notes for them , as well as their gift tags of course! Thank you.

  • 652
    Abby V says:

    I really love all the cards. That damask stocking is my fave! Growing up we never did the Christmas stocking thing-growing up in the islands, it wasn’t a big thing. But now that I have my own kids, we hang out stocking on the mantle. I spend Oct/Nov/Dec looking for small things to put inside their stockings. They get to open it Christmas morning since we open the “big” presents on Christmas Eve.

  • 653

    I think my favorite gifts most often were the fun little ones tucked deep inside my stocking!! i still love to open mine up~

  • 654
    Karen H. says:

    This is an awesome set – I love stockings – they were always my favorite part to Christmas!

  • 655

    What a beautiful set and your samples are gorgeous! I love the one with the leaves and berries on the inside of the card! I remember waking up and looking down to see if Santa had stopped by – my sister and I would run to our stockings and go through them as we waited for our parents. See we always woke up quite early so my parents weren’t as fast arriving down the stairs as we were!

  • 656
    Ashley B says:

    Christmas Stockings remind me of the fact that’s that how we always started Christmas off when we were kids. We opened our stockings first thing Christmas morning once everyone was awake and then we started opening gifts. When I was in HS & College, I got a new stocking that was tiny and said, “No Candy, Just Cash”! It was always in good fun, but it’s still makes me smile everytime I think about it. : )

  • 657
    Maureen says:

    Christmas stockings are my favorite part of christmas…except for maybe the food. You made the cutest cards with those cute stockings. Can I copy those as my christmas card…all credit to you of course.

    These samples are so pretty! I love the clean and elegant look, which you captured perfectly. I can see me whipping several of these out very quickly πŸ™‚ Ive added these to my wish list.

  • 660
    Mary B says:

    I just love all the projects made today with the stockings. When I was young, we lived outside of the US. One year, my aunt sent me a package to be opened on Christmas Eve. Yep, it was a beautiful stocking to be hung that night. Still remember that Christmas…thanks for the chance to win!

  • 661
    Wendy Fox says:

    Stockings are my favorite Christmas memory! When my sister and I would wake up on Christmas day (about 4am!), my parents would let us open our stockings and then play with our goodies until everyone else got up. Stocking stuffers are still very important around here!

  • 662
    Susan Hall says:

    quilter says:

    I loved the Nat King Cole song to set the mood, and the stockings definitely are Christmasy and I love the simplicity, but yet elegance of your designs for the cards. I really like the border to use with the nesties. This is going to be on my list!! I am a quilter, so have made Christmas stockings, but these will go together so much quicker!

  • 666

    I love your new set, it reminds me of Christmas growing up-my Grandma had stockings for everyone, the adults the kids, the DOGS! Plus one GIANT family stocking that was ~3′ tall, thats huge to me now, imagine to a 6 year old! Thanks for posting your samples!

  • 667
    Amy P. says:

    My family always had a tradition of opening stockings last on Christmas. When my husband and I married, I found out that his family had the tradition of opening them first. Then much to my dismay I learned that though my family put fun stuff like jewlery and such in stockings, his put batteries and socks. It was a hard compromise for me. But now we open them first, with fun stuff inside! Stockings is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.

  • 668
    Cheri Howard says:

    More beautiful, inexpensive inspiration! I lot all the cards, but I never even THOUGHT to use my nesties as a piercing template! Now I have to try it!

  • 669
    Anette Eakins says:

    Love the stockings! Growing up in Germany, we didn’t do stockings at Christmas. But we put our boots by the door on December 6 (St. Nicholas Day) and St. Nick would fill the boots with little treats- small toys, clementines, nuts, candy. I continued this tradition with my boys. And they, of course, also have stockings that get filled on Christmas(so they get a double whammy).

    One of my favourite things about PTI is how many of the sets coordinate together. I love how the flourish on the stocking image matches the flourish set – these small details really make a big difference on a card or project. Love it!

    I love all these cards! And the breakdown of consumables makes it easy to justify them *wink*! I think I’m most drawn to the last sample because it’s the colous of my 4yo’s sweet woof & poof stocking! πŸ™‚

  • 693
    Wendy says:

    Christmas stockings are so close to my heart! My mum made each of her children a HUGE Christmas stocking when we were very young and each year Santa would come and fill them and leave them on the ends of our beds. We used to get so excited at the idea of Santa coming in to our bedrooms!I still have my stocking and will treasure it forever. Such a gorgeous set, I’m adding it to my wishlist!

  • 704
    Steph W. says:

    On Christmas morning we still do stockings between 5 and 6am. We have done this since I can remember as a child (and I’m 30!). Back then, it was my Mom and Dad and Sister and the rule was no stockings could be opened before Dad got coffee. Well, that’s still the rule, except now my Sister and I can make it for him. I love stockings because it is a fun was to give small gifts to each other and now that we live apart it keeps us together on Christmas Eve night. I guess that is the benefit of having a smaller family, only 6 of us now to get together. I love the holidays so much, but that first coffee and time spent when it is quiet on Christmas morning, then getting louder laughing together is probably my favorite day of the year.

    Thanks for the chance to win. I told myself I would be good this year and only get one holiday set, but I don’t think that will happen. =)

  • 705
