Build A Gingerbread House Card!

Hi friends,

I created today's card using Hero Arts Gingerbread Stamp & Cut set. I originally saw this cute Gingerbread House card idea at the Hero Arts website, so I thought I would try it myself!

Started with blending Iced Spruce distress oxide ink pad using an ink blending tool over a 4.25" * 5.5" white cardstock. White Gansai Tambi paint was flicked over this cardstock with a small paintbrush and set aside to completely dry. Once dry, snowflakes from the Gingerbread Stamp & Cut and trees from the Home For the Holidays stamp set were stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

A 1.25" x 5.5" strip of white cardstock was adhered along the bottom edge of the gray sky background. The sentiment "From Our home to yours HAPPY Holidays" from the Gingerbread Stamp & Cut  was stamped with Black Ink along the white border.

The two Gingerbread House Stamp & Cut houses and the gingerbread men were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Black Ink, colored in with Prismacolor pencils, and die cut the images before adhering them to the scene with foam adhesive squares for a bit of dimension. Added some highlights using a White gel pen over the colored images.

The card was finished with some sparkle using Wink Of Stella on these colored images.

Please leave us a comment, if you like this card. Your comments mean a lot to us and encourage us to keep sharing.

Hope you are having a great festive season. If you are still working this holiday season, I hope you make it through it with a smile on your face and a song in your heart. If you are not, enjoy your well-deserved rest! 

Have fun and til next time happy crafting!

It’s penguin-ing to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello everyone! Welcome to another blog post for Kraftgali!

When I saw Lawn Fawn’s Here We Go A-Waddling (LF1468) stamp set, I knew I just had to create a card that included these penguin friends image. I don’t know about you, but I know a TON of people who love penguins (& me).

I paired the sweet Penguin Friends images with basic stitched rectangle & circle Die and pretty DCWV Christmas Glitter Paper.

I stamped the trio of penguins on smooth white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored in the images with Prismacolor Pencils. All the images were cut using my Scan & Cut 2 machine. I added white detail of the penguins with an opaque Uni-ball white pen.

I stamped a greeting from the same Stamp Set on thin strips of black & white cardstocks & heat-embossed them. 

The other bird is from Avery Elle Winter Woodland Wonders stamp set that I colored in a similar way.

I die cut the Circles Die and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die from DCWV Christmas Glitter cardstock.  I also die cut three Circles from white cardstock and adhered them one on top of another with the Christmas Glitter cardstock circle adhered to the top. I applied distress oxide ink to the center of a top fold card base to cover half of the circle window. Then I added some twine to the rectangle panel & later adhered the rectangle panel and the circle frame and images to the finish the card using double-sided tape.
