Hi everyone! Monday??? Dang, how did that happen? This holiday weekend went by fast, I guess, because we were having fun! Time to get back in the groove. My husband was off work last week so my routine was wonky and it's the holidays... Oh, I think I need a nap! LOL. Thanks for all the comments on my last blog post. I really enjoyed reading about everyone's favorite crafty product. Hands down, the MISTI was the winner! Everyone's favorite tool! You have until the end of today to leave a comment to be entered into my prize drawing! Thanks to everyone for playing along. I will email the winner later tonight!
Today I have a really fun and silly card to share. As you've probably figured out, I don't take myself too seriously, and I love things that are campy, and kitschy. So, this set of stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp is right up my alley - Ugly Christmas Sweaters!!! SOOOO fun! I was smiling the entire time I was making this card! I went big and bold with the colors and glitter, and everything else. More is more! This card is super happy. I hope it makes you smile too!
I started with a crisp white A2 card base and then layered bright red on top of that. Then I chose some adorable patterned papers from Doodlebug (the strips and the gingham).... Next I die cut this amazing die I just got from Hero Arts! It's called Circle Confetti! I thought it looked like snow!! And, lemme tell ya, after you pop it out of the Big Shot, it will look like snow in your craft room when all those little dots fall out! LOL. All kidding aside, this is a very cool product! I think I might use it to make confetti for a shaker card later... The wheels are turning...
After I had my card all ready to go, I stamped and die cut out the two sweaters and the sentiment. The stamp sets have all kinds of things to put on your sweaters! The main stamp is a plain sweater and then you add what you like to it. OH MAN - so fun. I colored everything with my Copic Markers.
The sentiment is from another set - Warm Christmas Wishes. I thought that was the perfect saying for a sweater card! I die cut a SSS Stitched Banner Die for my words and added some holly leaves.
For the finishing touches, I added bits of Hero Arts Prisma Glitter, clear gems, white gel pen accents, and a green twine bow. It's like putting on your jewelry at the end of getting dressed. You gotta add some bling to a card, right? The reindeer nose is red and Santa's nose is pink. I used clear gems and colored them with Copic Markers!
That's it for today! WARM winter wishes to you my creative friends! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you soon! XOXO
