Gingerbread Men Scentsational PCCCS10

Tumbling Gingerbread men…. another fun card using the Scentsational Season Stamp set from the current stampin’ up mini catalog!  This one is for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #PCCCS10.  Hope you like it!

Be Of Good Cheer is probably my most favorite Christmas themed Designer Series Paper from this years DSP collection!  I love the traditional colors of Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Very Vanilla… don’t you?

After viewing this weeks’ paper craft crew sketch challenge… LOL couldn’t help but create another tumbling gingerbread men card, similar to one we made in last week’s Christmas card class (My first tumbling gingerbread guy card was made for the SCSC49 challenge shown HERE.)

It’s so easy to die-cut the gingerbread men using the big shot machine and matching Holiday Collection Framelits die!  The Holiday Collection Framelits are Sizzlit Dies and can be found on page 16 of the current mini catalog!3_moremerrymessages_sentiment_With_Scallops

This sentiment is from the More Merry Messages stamp set found on page 15 of the annual catalog… it was a must have from the moment I saw it… just can’t get enough words for card much less holiday cards, can you?  Rhinestone jewels were colored using a red sharpie marker and placed on the scallop punched edge.  LOL, wish I had added red rhinestone jewels to the gingerbread men (buttons… not their eyes… you know who you are!!)

I’m a total sucker for holiday stamp sets… and let me say that this years’ mini catalog has presented a huge struggle… LOL, I’m still finding stamp sets I’d love to have, most recently the Watercolor Winter Stamp set featured on page 14 of the mini catalog!!

The tumbling gingerbread men reminded me of a small child tumbling out of bed on Christmas morning…. and then getting dressed for the Christmas services… hence the final upright gingerbread guy has a real red bow tie!  Just my weird sense of humor, sorry!
