The Christmas Sweaters stamp set made for great projects at classes this we made 3 gorgeous cards and got covered in red ink and glitter……………….what’s not to like…..
We started with a simple card, stamping the adorable ‘fairy light sweater’ image using Momento Tuxedo Black ink across a panel of Whisper White 5⅞” by 1¾”. We then randomly coloured in the lights using Real Red, Pool Party and So Saffron ink pads and Blender Pens. After colouring we added the stamped piece to a layer of Pool Party 5⅞” by 2” and then to a Real Red layer 5⅞” by 2¼” using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
We stamped the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set using Real Red ink onto the Thick Whisper White card base before adding the stamped panel with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. This would be a great card to mass produce.
For the second card we stamped the ‘gingerbread’ jumper using the Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. We coloured it in using Real Red, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and So Saffron ink pads and Blender Pens before using a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and the Big Shot to cut it out. We also die cut a slightly larger scalloped circle from Real Red cardstock using the Layering Circle dies and glued the 2 layers together. The scalloped circles were added to one of the gorgeous Foil Snowflakes.
We stamped the jumper randomly onto a Pool Party panel 5⅜” by 3⅝”using Pool Party ink then wrapped a length of ⅛” Real Red Ribbon around the panel, securing it on the back with Sellotape. The panel was then added to a Pool Party card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back of the Foil Snowflake and the piece was added to the card front. To finish the card we added a bow made using the ⅛” Real Red Ribbon and adhered it using a Mini Glue Dot.
We used the ‘Santa Sweater’ to make the third card. The image was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and die cut using a square from the Stitched Shapes framelit dies. The sweater was then coloured in using the Real Red Marker Pen. We added colour to Santa’s glasses using the Crumb Cake ink pad and added colour to Santa’s face using a Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencil and the Blender Pens. He is such a jolly looking chap……. We covered his beard, mustache, eyebrows, hat brim and bobble with a thin coating of Tombow which we spread thinly using a cotton bud and covered it in Dazzling Diamonds Glitter………gorgeous. The stamped panel was added with Tombow to a square of Pool Party cardstock die cut using the Layering Squares dies.
We took a panel of Whisper White 5¼” by 3½”, inserted the lower right hand corner into the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot. We then randomly stamped the rest of the panel with the tiny stars from the Star of Light stamp set using Pool Party Ink. Two pieces of ⅛” Real Red Ribbon were then wrapped around the top of the panel and secured with Sellotape on the back. The stamped panel was then added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set was stamped in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Pool Party cardstock, the end was flagged with scissors and added to the card front with Tombow.
Three quirky, fun Christmas cards. I hope you like them.
