Gingerbread Card & Pin

Since I haven't posted a video in awhile I thought it would be fun to also do a Holiday Card along with the Pumpkin Patch Video...

These gingerbread men pins are something I've done for years... So, when I started thinking about doing them again this year my mind went on overdrive to see how I could incorporate them into a card... and this is what I came up with!!!

My thoughts were to put these cute little gingerbread men on a plate... for Santa! So here is my interpretation of it! And I think they turned out just "YUMMY"... tee hee!!

So instead of waiting I thought I'd share my "Gingerbread Man Card & Pin" video with you all right away!!! I hope you like it as much as I do and you'll try making some for someone this holiday season. If you do please let me know how it turns out… and send me links to your pics!

Happy Holidays.











I love this gingerbread stamp, I had it since 1993... they don't make it anymore but if you go to either ebay and type in gingerbread man, or go to this stamp artists website (www.printworkscollection.com)... you might just find something you like...
Paper: DCWV, Stamp: Annette Allen Watkins (www.printworkscollection.com), Chalk Pencil: Schwan/Stabilo, Color Pencils: Staedtler Watercolor Pencils, Blender:Go to your local art store, they will have it, Ink: Ranger, Tag: Teresa Collins, Fingernail Polish: Target, Circle Cutter: EK Sucess, Adhesives: Tombow, Xyron

So very creative. Rainee will be a super crafter by the time she grows up with all this first hand experience! Puts me in the holiday spirit.

This is a very cute idea! I have some gingerbread men stamps that I haven't used yet because I wasn't sure what to do with them. You've just inspired me : )
