On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me . . . eleven degrees above average . . . or at least that is what it felt like when Barbara Lindsey and I stepped off a freezing cold plane, from freezing cold Melbourne, into the gorgeous tropical heat of a steaming Brisbane day, in order to attend the Brisbane Heartfelt Stampin' Event in November.
Yep! You gotta love a job that justifies you flying all over the country in the name of stamping! Tassie one weekend, Brisbane the next! No wonder you can't get hold of me!
If you recall - way back at the start of August - I demonstrated at the Melbourne Heartfelt Day, so it was a real pleasure to go to Brisbane and attend the day as a guest and do all the classes and see all the wonderful demonstrations by such talented fellow demonstrators. One of the projects we saw were three lovely Gingerbread House Easel Cards made by the very talented Liz Collett. They sure were sparkly!
At our last Stamp Club night for the year, I wanted to make something fun, Christmassy and a bit different, so I decided the girls would all make a Gingerbread House, inspired by Liz's. Thank you for the inspiration and straight forward instructions Liz!
This is what we came up with.
And the interesting thing is, I didn't even know that I owned a packet of More Mustard Card Stock until I went looking for it to make these cards! LOL
We had some fun (NOT!!) with the gorgeous Paper Doily Sizzlits die - two things : first you have to have it facing UP! and secondly, put waxed kitchen paper both sides of your card stock in your Big Shot sandwich! It makes the pieces just fall out!
You can see we used lots of Holiday Catalogue Products for these cards - the Scentsational Season Bundle from Page 16, the delicious Snow Festival Designer Series Paper from page 10, Greetings of the Season Stamp Set on page 8, Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set on page 5, and one of my favourite products of all - the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page 33. Whoa!!!
Lots of fun, and such a novel card for that special someone!
Well, one more day in my Twelve Days of Christmas series, so I will see you tomorrow! Take care and see you then!
