It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!! This week, I used Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Gingerbread Dreams (E061) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.
To make this card I stamped the Gingerbread House image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool in order to give me a nice crisp image. I coloured in the image with a little guidance from Kit and Clowder’s Gingerbread house video created by Alyce. For the snow and candies, you can’t see it in this photo, but I used Spectrum Noir – Crystal Clear Sparkles. Once I finished colouring in the image, I fussy cut around it. I also stamped out the sentiment and fussy cut around that as well.
Next I used the Gingerbread Chain punch from Creative Memories to cut out my little gingerbread men and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the icing and a dab of Copic Marker #29 for the cheeks.
For the assembly of the card, I used 6″ x 6″ AC Autumn Cardstock for the base. I had a piece of Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper from a previous project that I had worked on and layered this on top of the Gingerbread men paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Milk and Cookies.
Lastly I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up all of the images and sentiment. I added in the little red embellishments to represent the little gingerbreads dreaming of their wonderful gingerbread house. LOL!
