A Partridge, a Pear, and a Tree

trio-of-sweatersSimon Says Stamp’s Ugly Sweater set is so fun and has so many possibilities — though, I think any creation made with it wouldn’t be ugly at all!!

I used three different patterned papers for the sweaters and coordinating papers for the trim — all were stamped, cut out, and glued.

trio-of-sweaters-5Behind the three sweaters I used Concord and 9th’s Tree Ring Background stamp and a strip of flowered paper.  I stamped the sentiment on acetate and then layered these on a gray card.   The tree ring was coloured with gelatos.

Each sweater was embellished with a different item — a wooden bird coloured yellow with alcohol ink markers, a pear sticker attached with foam tape and highlighted with liquid pearls, and a wooden tree coloured and also highlighted with liquid pearls. trio-of-sweaters-3 The flowered and striped sweaters were attached directly to the card and the “pear sweater” was attached with foam tape.  A few silver sequins were attached to the card.
