A Cup of Christmas

It's been fun collaborating with Joy Clair Stamps for the month of March.  

Today I combined stamps from Joy Clair's Christmas Coffee & Ugly Sweater Background Builder (I love how the repeated design elements work together).

Remember, leave a comment on all of the posts with the Collaboration Image (below) for a chance to win.

I found with Christmas Coffee, it worked better for me to stamp the outline first and then stamp the inside pattern.

The MISTI makes it easy to line-up your stamps.

I used the Ugly Sweater Builder and my Memory MISTI to stamp the background for my card (yes indeed my Christmas Trees are upside down ... lucky for me, I could just flip the design).

The layout is this week's Match the Sketch.

    Reminding me of a sweater pattern
    warms my chilly body. It's cold
    and dreary and getting ready to
    pour buckets of rain. Friendly
    card makes me happy. thanks

  11. I don't know why it's called Ugly Sweater. I LOVE IT. Anyway, the MISTI makes it so much easier to stamp. LOVE the whole project.

  12. Cute layout! I love the sweater pattern (especially on the cup) and never would have realized the background was upside down, because the trees are white when flipped that way!
