To create my projects, I used stamps from both Our Daily Bread Designs and North Coast Creations. Both projects use the beautiful Christmas Paper Collection 2013 also from ODBD.
My first project features the Stuffed Stocking template, all template pieces were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.
After cutting all the template pieces from card stock and the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection, I stamped the image from North Coast Creations Santa Paws stamp set (available November 15th). I wanted to use multiple colors on the image, to do this, I places EZ Release tape over the Ornament and Branch, then inked the dog with Ranger Coffee Archival, removed the tape, then colored the ornament and branch with Markers. I stamped the bow portion of the image onto Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut it out and placed over the image using dimensionals. Both the White and Espresso panels are dry embossed using the Snowflake Texture Fades Embossing Folder. To embellish the stocking, I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding, a poinsettia that was stamped and die cut using Our Daily Bread Designs Poinsettia Wreath stamp set along with the ODBD Custom Poinsettia Wreath Dies/ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies, and also a stamped tag that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die. To accent the pattern paper panels, I added faux stitching using Drywall Tape and a marker.

My second project features the Pop Up Frosty Template along with the Snowflakes Template. This template is perfect for Christmas Gift Cards!
Before cutting the template pieces on my Silhouette, I removed the score lines, as I wanted to manually add those. Once the pieces were cut, I stamped the Snowflake Background from Our Daily Bread Designs in Blue ink on the card and envelope templates as shown. The snowman and gift pieces were cut from scraps of the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection. The sentiment is from North Coast Creations Holly Jolly Christmas is stamped in Black, with the leaves and berries colored with markers. I added a bit of Spica Glitter Pen to all the pattern paper panels, and a dot of White Gel pen to the snowman's eyes.
