Bringing Sexy Sweaters Back

Hello! Today I have a fun card to share that uses the awesome new Ugly Sweater stamps from Simon Says Stamp that recently came out as part of their Cold Hands, Warm Heart release!

These stamps are so so fun with lot's of humour and a ton of creative possibilities! There are so many fun ways to make the sweater and vest 'ugly' including the awesome Santa that I added to my ugly sweater. And that sentiment... an absolute favourite! I love it!! ;) ;)

To create my card, I stamped the sweater and the Santa on white cardstock and coloured the sweater green with Copic markers. I also stamped and coloured a second Santa so I could add it directly on top of the other one with foam adhesive.

Once I had all of the colouring done, I masked off the sides of the sweater and stamped the word 'sexy' along the bottom under the Santa. I wanted it to look like it was actually a part of the sweater. To stamp the rest, I cut all the words apart and then stamped them above and below the sweater to complete the sentiment.

I added some white dots to the cuffs of the sweater with a white gel pen and I also stamped a bunch of snowflakes on the sweater and heat embossed them all with clear embossing powder.

I stamped a bunch of the snowflakes onto a piece of Green Apple cardstock with Fog ink and then layered a piece of vellum on top before adding the Postage Edge diecut panel with foam adhesive.

To complete the card, I gave Santa a gem nose that I coloured with a light pink Copic marker, I added Star Dust Stickles to his beard and hat and scattered sequins and Silver Stickles around the card. ;)


I also have a winner to announce from the SSS Cold Hands, Warm Heart blog hop. Huge congrats to CraftyPaws! Simon Says Stamp will be in touch with you to get your prize mailed out!! ;)
