Baby Booties

I love finding alternative uses for the Stampin Up punches. The stitched stocking punch is not just for Christmas - you can make baby booties from the stockings.

Pink stockings and add a few tiny pearls and a bow - what a cute card for a sweet little girl.

Blue stockings for a little boy.

Stamp sets - Stitched stocking, Alphabet set is not SU
Tools - Stocking Tag punch
Embellishments - 1/8 inch taffeta - Marina Mist

Here I cut off the cuff at the top of the stocking and glued it down lower to make it look even more like little baby socks.

And - what about a hobby horse? I have a hobby horse pattern somewhere. Wouldn't it be cute to make a hobby horse for a little one's birthday and present it with this card?

Ink - Wisteria Wonder, Regal Rose
Stamp Set - Stitched stocking, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Aren't those some fun, versatile uses for the Stitched Stocking stamp set and Stocking Tag punch?
