Winter Sweater Blog Hop


Welcome to my blog and the Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Sweater Blog Hop.

Today the Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team is having a special blog hop featuring the Winter Sweater die set.  This is a die set I love to use because you can create so many different sweaters with it.  Below I have three cards I designed using this die set

This hop starts on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blogso if you are starting on my blog first, you may want to head over there now so you can start at the beginning of the hop. I'm sure you do not want miss anything because there is lots to see!  Here are the links to all the Winter Sweater Blog Hop blogs:


To celebrate the Winter Sweater Blog Hop Elizabeth Craft Designs will be offering customers 15% off the Winter Sweater die using the code  “BRRR” at checkout.  This offer will last until Sunday, October 1.


It is always cool where I live in late October and I thought it would be fun to create a Halloween Sweater with the Winter Sweater die set.

This is a 6-inch card.  A piece of the design paper from the Cucina With Love design paper pack was added to the front.

The Sweater was die cut using black card stock.  The cuffs were die cut using orange card stock then a thin line marker used to draw lines and dots on them.  A black peel off  wavy line sticker was used to add to the top and bottom of each of the cuffs.

The Halloween stamp set was used for the candy corn witch, boo, and bat.  They were colored with markers and die cut using the matching die set.

The Spooky Sentiments stamp set was used for the Happy Halloween Sign.  It was die cut using the Labels 1 die set.  The sentiment was stamped on orange card stock, and black embossed.  The label was attached to black card stock and trimmed around the edges with scissors.

The ModaScrap Leafy Branch 2 die set was used to die cut three sets of leaves, using Mustard card stock.  Brown and Orange ink was sponged on the leaves.  Susan's Flower Tool Kit was used to shape the leaves.

The Label was attached with dimensional tape and the Leafy Branches were attached under the label.

The bat was die cut using the Halloween stamp set and die cut with the matching die set.  It was attached with dimensional tape.

To finish the card, black flat backed beads were attached to the corners of the card.


Below are two Winter Sweater cards I want to show you to give you additional ideas for your cards.  All the products used for all three cards are linked below.   


For this sweater I used a red yarn to cover the sweater.  The sweater was die cut with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the front so the yard would stick the body of the sweater.  A Way With Words dies were used for the Sentiment.  The Holiday Garlands 2 die set used to die cut the gold border.

This sweater was die cut using felt adhered to Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  You could also use one of the Velvet Adhesive Sheets from ECD.  For the background, a piece of the new Unconventional Christmas Paper was used.  The sentiment was stamped using the new Fashionable Phrases stamp set and die cut using the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners die set.  The ovals used are Fitted Ovals and Fitted Frames 4 - Curvy Ovals die sets.

Be sure to check out all the other design team's cards using this fun die set.
