Ugly Christmas Sweaters…you gotta love them, right?! I picked up the Ugly Sweater stamp set by Simon Says Stamp at one of our multi-crafter Garage Sales along, with the SSS Merry Christmas Craft die, here’s how I was inspired:
Let’s chat about my card, sorry about the photog, I’m too impatient to wait for more natural sunlight this morning…and I’m leaving the house in a bit. Isn’t that classic Stampin’ Up star garland awesome? I’ve been squirreling that away for the right project and it fits the theme perfectly.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:
Next up is my tag! I was busy away designing my tag when I realized I didn’t have any place to well, make it look like a tag. Thanks to Erin’s post, she remedied the situation.
I could have made things so much easier for myself and used a blue panel rather than blending Broken China Distress Oxide on that rectangular piece…oh well, I made sure I incorporated the same color in the argyle stamping. The rectangular scallop piece is via a Waltzingmouse die and the tag topper is a portion of a Reverse Confetti Tall Tag Trio.
My card was inspired by Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags – Day One.
Specifically, it was Karin’s sweet tag. I CASED her overall design, thanks for the inspiration Karin!
