Today’s fun and whimsical card was inspired by my teammate Barb Capen and I received it in a team card swap. I love how all of the background stamping is done in the White Craft Paint. I feel that it compliments the fun nature of the gingerbread house. I’ve said before that I would be grabbing the Yummy Christmas Stamp Set as I love how the gingerbread house can be die cut using the Cuckoo Clock Dies (gotta love it when you can double down on a die set).
Barb and I both stamped our gingerbread house on Crumb Cake Cardstock and chose fun colors of Stampin’ Blends to bring them to life. I would like to remind you that typically I use Whisper White Thick Cardstock when coloring with my Stampin’ Blends. With that being said, remember that the weave in the Whisper White Thick Cardstock is a tighter weave. This means your blends will spread easier on our regular cardstock, so a very light touch is needed.
Barb chose to add the Shimmery Crystal Effects to her candy canes and peppermints and I just love the sparkle. The White Chalk Marker was used for many of the white highlights to represent snow covered areas as well. We both used our Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue and sprinkled the Ice Stampin’ Glitter on it for the roofs and the snow in front of the houses. This card would be precious to send to a little one in your life at Christmas time as I’m sure it would make their day. Thanks so much Barb for inspiring me with your adorable card.
