Ugly Sweater | Simon Says Stamp

Ugly Christmas gotta love them, right?!  I picked up the Ugly Sweater stamp set by Simon Says Stamp at one of our multi-crafter Garage Sales along, with the SSS Merry Christmas Craft die, here's how I was inspired:

Let's chat about my card, sorry about the photog, I'm too impatient to wait for more natural sunlight this morning...and I'm leaving the house in a bit.  Isn't that classic Stampin' Up star garland awesome?  I've been squirreling that away for the right project and it fits the theme perfectly.

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


Next up is my tag!  I was busy away designing my tag when I realized I didn't have any place to well, make it look like a tag.  Thanks to Erin's post, she remedied the situation.

I could have made things so much easier for myself and used a blue panel rather than blending Broken China Distress Oxide on that rectangular piece...oh well, I made sure I incorporated the same color in the argyle stamping.  The rectangular scallop piece is via a Waltzingmouse die and the tag topper is a portion of a Reverse Confetti Tall Tag Trio.

Specifically, it was Karin's sweet tag.  I CASED her overall design, thanks for the inspiration Karin!


  1. Ugly sweaters for the win! The sweater vest on your CAS card goes so well with the fun garland. And the Santa sweater! Love it! Even better with an argyle background, it's like double the ugly sweater pleasure, lol. Great to see that you were inspired by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!
