Sunny Studio Stamps - Gingerbread House


Hello friends!  I am here today with some sweet holiday wishes!  I used the new Gingerbread House die from Sunny Studio Stamps to make a shaped card!  This die is a large size and nearly fills an A2 card front.  It's perfect for creating shaped cards.  I started off by diecutting two of the largest house dies from medium  brown cardstock, along with all of the windows, the door, and the roof.  I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to ink the edges of each piece for more contrast.  Then, I cut the window, door and roof trim from white cardstock, and the body of the house from light pink cardstock.  If you have followed me for any length of time a pink gingerbread house should not surprise you at all! ;)  The edges of the main part of the house were inked with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.  Then, I diecut one of the Icing Borders from white cardstock glued that near the bottom of the house. I adhered all of the other pieces with liquid glue, and added Diamond Stickles to nearly everything.  LOL!  I forgot that ink will make the Stickles change color slightly, and that is why my roof looks a bit gold.  I think it is a fun contrast to the white.

Next, I stamped the two gingerbread from the Christmas Cookies stamp set in brown ink and colored them with Copic markers.  They were diecut with the coordinating Christmas Cookies dies.  The brown ink makes they look a but like I did no-line coloring.  I added their little faces back ink with a brown pen, and enhanced their icing stripes with a white gel pen, then popped them up with foam tape.  I adhered the front of the house to a second house diecut that I scored about 1/2" front the top so the card would open properly.  Finally, I added white gel pen accents to the rest of the card, and a few tiny clay hearts to finish off my card.
