Gingerbread Shaker Card w/ Paper Sweeties!! =)

Pin It


HELLO!!
I'm up on the Paper Sweeties Blog today sharing a SWEET Shaker Card using the Gingerbread Cluster from the Basket Add On: Baked with Love Stamp Set and the Large Gingerbread from the Sugar & Spice Stamp Set and then I used the Coordinating Sugar & Spice Sweet Cuts Die Set to Die Cut the Large Ginerbread Men and the Holly was Die Cut from the Holly Days Sweet Cuts Die Set and the Tag from the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts Die Set the Sentiment was Stamped from the Mason Jar Stamp Set!!
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these SWEET Gingerbread Men all together and thought they'd make the Sweetest Shaker Card along with these Mini Gingerbread Sequins from American Crafts!!

SQUEAL!! How Sweet are these together!!?? I used some older Pattern Papers from    and I LOVE the way they compliment this SWEET Design!! I Die Cut the Card Base using a Stitched Die and then added the two patterns together!! I Die Cut the Large Gingerbread Image from the Center of my Card and then backed it with some Acetate!! I also Die Cut some Fun Foam and then before adhering everything together I Stamped and Embossed the Large Gingerbread Image onto the Card Backing!! Then I added the Bow too just to add a PoP of Color!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Gingerbread Men Cluster and Watercolored them using some Distress Inks!! I added some Foam Tape and added them to the Top of the Acetate Window!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and the Hearts onto a Tag that was Die Cut and then added some Felt Holly Leaves that I Die Cut, a Ribbon, a Button and my Card was Done!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!!

I also made a SWEET Tag to go along with my Card!! I used the Die Cut Gingerbread Man that was Left over from the Card Front and then I Stamped and Embossed the Gingerbread Man onto some Kraft Cardstock and Die Cut it out using the Coordinating Die!! I also Stamped and Embossed the Bow onto some Lawn Fawn Plaid Patterned Paper and then I Die Cut it out!! I Glued the two together and added the Tag Hole to the top of the Tag and added the Twine!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you'll visit EVERYDAY for more AMAZING INSPIRATION from the Rest of the Design Team and the Guest Designers!!

HELLO!!

I wanted to use the AMAZING New Fireside Friends Stamp Set!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this SWEET Image and ALL of the Possibilities with it!!
Fireside Friends Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs
I Stamped and Embossed the Image onto some Distress Watercolor Paper using Versafine Black Onyx Ink and Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder!! Then I used my Distress Markers to Watercolor the Images!! Once it was dry I took some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops and added them to the Bow, Fire and the Tiny Heart beside the Sentiment!! Once the Nuvo Drops were Dry I Fussy Cut around the Image leaving a Small White Border!! I then took another piece of Distress Watercolor Paper and added some Faux Stitching with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Die and then I Inked around the Fire Place with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! I wanted to tie on the Turquoise from the challenge and this seemed to be the BEST way!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment and the Tiny Heart and then I added some Small Sequin Snowflakes by American Crafts and some Pretty Pink Posh Crystal Clear Sequins in 3mm and 6mm Sizes!!
