Hello My Friends!!
It is about time I joined in with the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas again. I have jumped to Tag 4. Well! I am behind so I can choose which one I want to play with next. Jump HERE and you can see Linda's Tag.
I don't know if it is just me, but when I see these dies/stamps I always think of Christmas jumpers. So I decided why not make some in cardstock.
I took a Snippet piece of white card out of my crapalanche and some NBUS stamps of hats, scarfs and mittens mounted on a block, my Versamark and red glitter embossing powder and stamped a background panel.
Next the jumper. I turned on my Silhouette and went to the design store to find some jumpers. I cut two out of cardstock then cut the arms off, laid all three pieces side by side and stamped the Tim Holtz stamp and embossed it with WOW white embossing powder. I then joined the sleeves back on with some tissue tape. If you are wondering why I bothered to cut the sleeves off, I am also a knitter and fair isle is knitted in straight lines and then joined to the body, hence just stamping the whole jumper in one go would not look right.
When I put the jumper onto the background, I felt the background was far too "busy" but I really wanted to use it, so I stamped a sentiment on to some vellum with Versamark and WOW powder and placed it over the top of the background securing it with brads then a quick tag, well Linda's is a tag, some ribbon and a wooden embellishment, inspired by Linda's tag, finished the card off.
Oh, I said I made two jumpers so here is the second card.
I made this a portrait style card this time.
I really like these cards and may make a few more.
If you want any of the Tim Holtz stamps, they are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Thanks for calling by. There is still time to join in the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas with some fun prizes to win if you complete all 12.
Off to join in with the Snippets Playground as I did use some Snippets, just as soon as the gates have been opened.
