Ugly Sweater...


Do you ever get that feeling that your conversations are being recorded? No..just me then?

Well several weeks ago JT and I had a Skype playdate and she showed me some cool papers that she wanted to make into Christmas sweaters / jumpers for cards. Only problem was she didn't have a die and didn't want to handcut them.

So I looked around for her to no avail.

Then after my birthday SimonSaysStamp released their 2014 Christmas range and these beauties were part of it -

So I bought x2 sets - one for me (thanks to my in-laws bday gift) and one for JT (currently somewhere over the Atlantic). It's like SSS overheard us and granted our wish.

As you can see from the main card, I have been having fun with this set. I got my colouring inspiration from Audrey @ Pink Originals - the tags she made with the set are awesome and fun.

Here are a couple more (I made 12 in total) -

Ugly Sweater + Star Brads

Ugly Sweater + Wreath stamp
These cards were fun to make and really make me smile and I hope the recipients feel the same way.

Hope you have all had a good week, one of my high points came when I discovered Gayatri Murali's blog and now she's sending me one of her gorgeous cards!

Have a great weekend! Hubby and I are most excited as his Mum and Sister arrived tonight for 5 days, so it's going to be an action packed one!



  1. These cards really made me smile and they will the recipients too! Love them! Have a fab weekend, hugs Carole Z X

  3. Oh Wow! these are wonderful Claire! so bright and cheery… and lots of fun! Love the paper pieced sweaters and the sentiment is brilliant…

    Big hugs Sue B xx

  4. Love these Claire and I really wish I lived in the US because I'd be buying them!


  5. We are so aligned - I spent my jet-lagged Saturday night stamping and cutting sweaters last night! So funny - I haven't added any of the little santas or wreaths - that's a good touch. Thanks for finding these! x

  6. Ah these are brilliant, Love those Ugly sweaters!! Love Hazelxx
