Gingerbread Village with Guest Designer, Monica Taylor!
Hi everyone! Well as you probably know by now, I am celebrating all month long with my Christmas in July. I am also excited to be guest designing on the Brutus Monroe blog so I thought it would be fun to incorporate some of his stamps into my series.
Today i am working with the stamp set called Gingerbread Village. This set is so cute and there are so many possibilities with it. Let me show you what I created.
I made a few cards using this stamp set and the first time I stamped everything on white card stock and colored in the images using my copic markers. But I know that everyone does not have copic markers, so I decided to show you another way to get around a lot of the coloring.
Kraft Card stock is the perfect color for gingerbread. So I stamped my house and gingerbread man onto some kraft card stock. Before fussy cutting the images, I adhered some double sided adhesive so that I could create stickers. I find with smaller images, it is easier to use double sided adhesive that way I know they will have a strong adhesive.
I used my red copic marker to color in the candy canes and chimney and my green copic marker for my wreath. For the white, i used Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. I matted the white card stock onto some black card stock.
Then I took another piece of white card stock and created a red and white checkered border using washi tape. I adhered my black card stock onto this piece.
The scarf, hat and boots adhered to my little gingerbread man so easily as stickers. I highly recommend this when working with smaller objects.
I adhered this panel onto my card base and as a final touch added clear Nuvo drops over the white snow to make it glisten.
Here is a closer look.
