Christmas Is Love With Lots of Sugar Sprinkled On Top--PP373

December 3, 2017

WOW!  December has rolled around and we are all at a mad rush to get everything done and still have time to enjoy the season!  

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  Our lovely Laurie has a fabulous theme challenge for all of us!  What could be better than Christmas baking?  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a white card base.  The background paper is from SugarPea Designs Happy Holidays Patterned Paper collection.  It was perfect for my little gingerbread people and baker.  I stamped the characters using SugarPea Designs GingerSnaps and Whiskey Business stamp sets.  They were colored with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced the little girl's apron and hat.  I also added white gel pen accents to the GingerSnaps.  The images were cut out using the matching dies.   sentiment is from the SugarPea Designs Seasons Greetings stamp set.  Wink of Stella was added for lots of shine. I just love the way this card turned out.

  1. What a sweet card! I like the way the characters break out of the frame as though they're about to step out. The paper piecing is great and a hot pink gingerbread baby - priceless! Your colouring is magnificent.

  2. How cute Claire! those images are adorable and I love the plaid.

    Have a great day!

  3. Your little gingerbread babies are adorable Claire and I just love your little baker's paper-pieced plaid hat and apron. The background paper provides the perfect border too - just like squiggly icing! I am so looking forward to my annual gingerbread baking session - not long now!

  4. Your images are adorable and Perfect for the Paper Players Challenge!

  5. I love the way this turned out too! Love the icing on the frame, the paper piecing, and those yummy gingerbread characters. Your white highlights makes the frosting look so shiny! I hope you're having a good week ~ Hugs, Annie

  6. Oh my goodness, your gingerpeeps are as cute as can be. Love their bright and happy colors and the paper pieced baking accessories. One's apron should ALWAYS coordinate with your baker's hat! Adorable card, Claire!

  7. Ooooh - this is SO FUN Claire! I love the bright happy colours and your detailed colouring is fantastic!

  8. How adorable, Claire! Your little gingersnaps are so precious. I love the patterned hat and apron, the rick-rack border, all of it comes together so perfectly!
