Oh I had to play with this fun set! Kristina Werner is a genius to have picked up on the ugly sweater thing and turned it into stamp and die sets for Simon Says Stamp! I made this card the other day, but now having seen peeks on Instagram and some of the hop cards yesterday, I’m not sure if my sweater is ugly enough LOL. There are some seriously crazy stampers out there who really know how to rock this set :D
I enjoyed putting some of my new found Copic skills, courtesy of Online Card Classes Copic Markers for Card Makers, to use to try and get a bit of texture into my jumper (UK speak). I’ve still a way to go I think, but equally I had a lot of fun colouring this in :D The jumper from Ugly Sweater is stamped in Memento tuxedo black and accented with the tree image from Sweater Words & Appliqués. After colouring with Copics and cutting out with the matching Sweater die, the tree is accented with Stickles on the star and Glossy Accents on the baubles. The fabulous sentiment is stamped in black on a Neenah solar white panel and then the sweater foam mounted above. All foam mounted again onto a top folding Neenah card base.
Phew, that’s me for today – three posts in one day, it’s like proverbial buses around here LOL. There’s more in store for tomorrow mind with the last of the Clearly Besotted peeks before the release goes live (there might be a little hop tomorrow shhhhh) and more from the Cold Hands, Warm Heart release from Simon :D

Tags are always a fun element and yours was striking. That’s a great set of text stamps, too. Thanks for your ideas.
