Some New Yummies and a Month Long Challenge

Hello, my friends!

There are going to be a few exciting changes happening around here in the next couple of months. Today I get to tell you about one of them!

I know that many of you are familiar with my fondness for Jellypark digi images. I have used them regularly for a long time. Well, I am very happy to share that I am now part of the Jellypark Design Team! I've been a fan of Claire's sweet images ever since I first saw them, and I'm so excited to have joined the team! :o)

For my first project I have used this brand new Jellypark release called "Gingerbread Dress Up" that you can find in the Jellypark Store. As soon as I saw it I had an idea of what I wanted to make. Since this is for my introduction at the  Jellypark blog I wanted my project to be special. Here it is:

Here it is open:

Yes, I made a little gingerbread easel card for my gingerbread man! The trick came in putting my plan into action. I only have a few Cricut Cartridges...nothing Christmas themed...and nothing that could be adapted. My Slice Cards have gingerbread houses but they were too small. So I had to make this one from scratch...which was lots of fun! I drew out the house in the size I wanted. Then I cut the icing trim and used the goo punch on it. The candy was made from a circle punch and the modern label punch. I then covered it with Glossy Accents. It looks a little bit cloudy in my photos because it was still wet.

Materials Used:
Papers: American Crafts - Merrymint, Kraft Cardstock;
Image: Jellypark - Gingerbread Dress Up;
Dies: Sizzix Framelits - Tags, Rounded;
MM Slice Design Card - Fa La La;
Punches: Martha Stewart - Drippy Goo Punch,
Fiskars - 1" Circle, Stampin' Up - Modern Label,
WRMK  Corner Chomper - Cloud;
Stamp: Tim Holtz - Mini Holidays;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Buttons & Ribbon: My Stash;
Other: Enamel Accents - White, Glossy Accents, Clear Glitter Glue.

Please head on over the the Jellypark Friends Friday Challenges where we're having a month long Christmas Challenge. Then make something and join in the fun! :o)
