Two Broke Girls Collaboration Week

No, I'm not talking about the new t.v. show (which I haven't watched yet). I'm referring to myself and my friend Jess Larsen over at Jess Larsen Designs.  Let's be honest, most of us who do this crafting thing end up spending a pretty penny on supplies. And if your like me, you don't even feel guilty :o)  So Jess and I have teamed up to give our supplies some love and provide you with a week of inspiration.  Be sure to stop by both our blogs everyday this week to see what we've been up to!  I found Jess' blog during the first Young Crafter's Unite Blog Hop and I'm so glad I did! She's super talented and funny to boot. Here's a little bit about Jess:

Hi everyone! My name is Jess Larsen. I am a 24 year old papercrafter, with a love of all things stamps and ink. I
 I am currently the editor of a small newspaper. I love my day job. It involves a lot of talking to people, writing and design work — three of my favorite things! I have a great husband who is super supportive and my best friend. We have two adorable cats who always keep us entertained. In my free time, I can usually be found creating in my craft studio. I have been crafting ever since I was little, and it is the always the most relaxing and enjoyable way to spend my time. When I'm not crafting, I love spending time with family and friends, camping, watching good movies and t.v. shows and playing guitar. I am excited for the week ahead and want to say a huge THANKS to Danielle for organizing this awesome week! She rocks! :-)

For Day 1 we decided to go with a color combo and each do our own take on it.  I had recently purchased a bunch of Hero Arts holiday stamps, so I thought I'd challenge myself to make a Christmas card using these non-traditional Christmas colors.  I'm super happy with how it turned out!
I stamped and clear embossed the background. The reindeer was stamped on kraft, and I colored the sweater with my Copics and paper pieced it. The trees were also stamped and paper pieced. I ripped the hills by hand and added some glitter for a little sparkle. Hope you enjoy! Be sure to visit Jess' blog to see her take on the color combo.  See you tomorrow for Day 2!
