Gingerman gift

Over at Jellypark we have a special month long Christmas themed challenge for you to play along with whenever you like throughout December.

Here is my creation using one of the fab new release's
I used the new gingerbread man digi stamp to add to a tag on my gingerbread mix gift jar made for the school Christmas fair - I hope whoever receives it likes it !

Here is the tag with a little space for a personal message and the gingerbread recipe printed on the reverse.
My gingerbread man is coloured with pro-markers with a little shading added with prisma pencils.

 Don't forget to check out the jellypark friends challenge blog to see all the great DT inspiration and also to be introduced to our new DT girls :)

Believe :)

This weeks new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend is an easy peasy one, especially with Christmas just around the corner, we want you to use some red - yep that's it ! Remember it does not have to be a Christmas project just as long as you use some red and, of course, some stamping !

Here is my card made with a super cute Saturated Canary image who is also our lovely sponsor this fortnight.
I coloured the fabulous image first with my pro-markers then added some shading with my prismas. The DP's are all from the Sherry K Christmas digi paper pack. The dress and the sentiment were both pieced onto the same Spotted DP - I just resized the print in word - another huge advantage of using digital papers :)
The snowflakes were diecut using my new (just couldn't resist them !) crafts too fresh snow snowflakes - I am so pleased with them they will def' feature on most, if not all, of my Christmas cards which I am only just starting on !!!

Don't forget to check out the Stampin' for the weekend challenge blog where you can see all the DT inspiration and get all the details for the challenge.
