“Hello! I am excited to be here today to share in bringing you the special holiday release happening this week at Inspired By Stamping! I hope you are ready for some holiday inspiration. The set I get to show you today is called Sugar and Spice. Every year my mom and I bake gingerbread cookies with my kids. It’s such a fun tradition! I knew this set would make the sweetest gingerbread house so that is what I did.
This was so much fun to make! I started by cutting the box using my Silhouette Cameo. It was the perfect base to dress up. The bow and holly leaves are a sneak peek at another set releasing this week called Christmas Wreath. All the other images are from the Sugar and Spice set. I went with the current color challenge at Inspired By Stamping as well. For my “snow” I layed down strips of Scor tape and sprinkled glitter.
I added little rhinestones for extra sparkle. I love the little bows along the roof line.
I hope you enjoyed my little gingerbread gift box!
Welcome everyone! I am so excited to be sharing with you my cards using the brand new release stamps. I am so in love with these new sets and I’m sure you will be too.
Today we are concentrating on the Sugar & Spice set – there are so many ways to use these stamps. My first card is lots of fun using 3 gingerbread men.
There are so many different ways that you can ‘dress’ you gingerbread. Aren’t they the cutest!! I stamped my solid gingerbread man and then embossed the extras with white powder. I gave one a hat that was embossed too. Then I fussy cut them out and popped them up on my embossed background using foam squares.
I stamped a couple of the sweet stamps and fussy cut them out. The sentiment was die cut at an angle to give it a bit more interest.
My next card also uses a cute gingerbread man and for this one I have created a fun shaker card!
I was so inspired by the colours in the photo for our IBS monthly challenge that I used it for this card.
I stamped a background using the little sweet stamps from this set, created my shaker card by filling it with sequins and stars and popped it on the front of my card base. Below you can see all the little goodies inside once it has been shaken.
I created my gingerbread man the same as in my first card using the little stars for his front, fussy cut him out and used glossy accents to adhere him to the front of my card.
Wow! I had so much fun using this set. I hope you are enjoying the first day of Release Week – strap yourself in because there is so much more to come! Thanks for popping in today xx
Thank you Leah and Kylie for such gorgeous cards! I have a few cards to share now! Super excited to share these fun cards with you!
I started stamping the little gingerbread man in Memento Ink Desert Sand. It is a great color for my little guy. I then started building him with the scarf, hat and little frosting bands.
Just a note there are two sizes of bands for this set for the arms and legs. Just in case you were wondering why I have two of the same.
I then lifted him up on foam dimensionals and placed him on a tag that I had already cut out. I then stitched with red string and added some red and blue rhinestones. A super fun and quick card if you don’t want to add the stitching.
My second card has a little bit more layers on it with again some red Christmas stitching around it. I then stamped my gingerbread men in kraft colored ink and added some layers to them. It is so fun watching these little guys come to life!
I then created this fun banner by using kraft and white cardstock. This cute sentiment can be found from this set and matches perfectly with this little dudes. I then added a blue button and tied a bow with some hemp string.
Here’s a little close up of the little gingerbread men! They are just so cute!
I specifically drew the gingerbread to fit perfectly inside our most popular Mason Jars set. I began by stamping the mason jar onto an already cut out mason jar cut out. I always have cut outs with my stamp sets to make stamping super quick!
Next, I stamped the little candies from this set inside the mason jar. This gorgeous topper is from our Mason Jars Add On II stamp set. And then this little guy was added to the front of the card on foam dimensionals.
Last but not least, I added some IBS White Crochet Tape, buttons and ribbon from our Christmas Ribbon Collection. And don’t forget that cute sentiment in the corner is also from this fabulous stamp set!
We hope you enjoyed today’s cards and projects from myself and the designers! We have a few more great designs from our designers that we’d love for you to pop over and see! Here’s the list!
