Good Monday Morning,
I love doing Taylor's Friday Cupcake Challenge - but can never quite get to it until Sunday evenings after the insanity of the weekend quietens down. Her sketch this week was a fun one and I couldn't wait to ink up more of Taylor's SASI (Stamp a Sweet Impression) stamps (if you haven't checked them out yet, you can view them here). I have been so excited to use her gingerbread image and so I had to pull it out for this sketch.
The brown cardstock and papers are from her Christmas kit. The gingerbread was colored with Prisma color pencils in shades of dark to light brown to yellow tones. The roof of the house was decorated with brads, there is also a golden brad as the door knob. The icing on the house, windows, etc. is liquid pearls. I used waterfall stickles, crystal stickles and orange stickles to color the gum drops in front of the house.
I cut the house and then popped it on dimensionals. The scalloped edge is created from corner rounders and then the sentiment Happy Holidays was embossed with white embossing powder. The ribbon is from the christmas kit and was attached by punching a hole in the scalloped edge and then tying it through. I touched some copper ink to the edges and added some snow with crystal stickles. The peppermint has a paper glaze on it which is a bit hard to see in the pic but quite shiny in real life :)
This was such a fun card to decorate and such a fun card to make. Makes me want to eat some gingerbread cookies with some chai.... yum!
Hope you are all doing well on this monday! Don't forget to check out what is playing this week on our blog challenge: Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!!! Every Saturday we pick a movie from which to draw inspiration in creating our craft projects - it is such a fun way to watch movies and make cards, etc. :) and also check out the fun sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Planet!
