Happy Friday! I have 2 Christmas Tags and 1 Christmas card to share today! I have been enjoying family, friends, and lots of food over the past few days! My family and I are so Very Blessed and Very Thankful! We have more festivities scheduled for today and tomorrow, so I wanted to pop in and get my latest creations posted.
I am playing along with this week' s The Card Concept. The challenge is to make a tag based on the inspiration picture. I thought it would be fun to create sweater tags this year! With all the "ugly sweater" parties this time of year, I thought a sweater tag would be fun! I must face facts, though. I can only hope people who receive my Christmas cards keep them forever....but I am pretty sure a gift tag is going to get trashed! Boohoo! I personally think these sweater tags are absolutely adorable....not "ugly sweater" at all!
These were so quick and easy that I made two in no time at all! I am using all MFT Stamps products unless otherwise stated. The first tag uses MFT black licorice card stock. I stamped the sweater with MFT Sweater Knit background using versa mark. It is very subtle but shows in real life...not so much in the pictures. The I die cut the Christmas Cuteness snowman and stamp with the coordinating Christmas Cuteness image using MFT hybrid black licorice ink. I colored with copics and popped it up on some Jody Boosters(stash) for some dimension. I used the cropodile to punch holes in the top left of the sweater. I added ribbon ties with some red and white twine(stash).
For the second sweater, I used used Red Hot card stock. I stamped the stitched pattern from Nordic Knits stamp set across the front using MFT Red Hot premium die ink pad. I die cut the adorable dear from Christmas Cuteness dienamics. I stamped the coordinating image from Christmas Cuteness stamp set. I colored with copics and popped it up on some Jody Boosters(stash) for some dimension. I love how these both turned out! I definitely want to make more of these! I am playing along with Simon's Work It Wednesday Holiday Themed Challenge.
In keeping with the sweater theme, I am moving along to my Christmas card which also showcases two sweaters!
Have a Cozy Christmas!
I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and The Color Throwdown. I just love these colors together and the sketch is always fun!
For my card I am using MFT kraft, electric red, berrylicious, and smooth white card stocks. I die cut the red panel using MFT Blueprints 13. I stamped the sentiment from MFT Cozy Greetings with MFT Pigment Sweet Tooth ink pad. I heat embossed with white embossing powder(stash). I die cut the white horizontal strip with MFT stitched scallop (medium sized one). I did this at the top and the bottom. I added a kraft stitched strip from MFT Blueprints 1 to the center.
For some added detailing I die cut this panel using the stitched die from MFT Blueprints 20. I die cut the stitch strip in electric red and berrylicious as well so I could add in the different colored stitches. Love this look! I softly sponged the edges for a warmer feel. I die cut the berrylicious focal panel using MFT rounded stitched rectangles stax. Love these! I softly sponged the edges. I die cut two of the smaller sweaters using MFT Comfy Sweaters. I stamped both sweaters using MFT Nordic Knits stamp set. I used MFT Natural Premium ink on the kraft and MFT Premium electric red on the electric red sweater. I die cut the center of the sweater image using MFT Blueprints 20. I really love how this card turned out!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
