Gingerbread For You

Such a cute little gingerbread boy! Sadly the dies that coordinate with the retiring Sending Cheer Stamp Set, have sold out, but don’t let that stop you from getting this adorable set. All of the shapes are easy to cut with your scissors. Get this before it’s gone for good.

This holiday season, make your own gift tags and cards with the Sending Cheer Stamp Set. Stamp an image, then punch or die cut it and you have a tag—it’s quick and easy! But quick and easy doesn’t mean boring. Stamp a gift image in one color, then stamp a bow image on it in a bright ink for fun contrast. Or stamp a stack of stocking images and top each with a different color cuff. And don’t forget cards! Just imagine how festive these images will look on handmade cards.

Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.

  3. Using Crumb Cake ink, stamp the Gingerbread Boy towards the top of the 3 ¼” x 2” piece of Basic White.  Using Black Memento stamp the face onto the Gingerbread Boy, and using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the hearts onto the Gingerbread Boy. 
  4. Using Shaded Spruce ink pad, stamp the holly leaves onto the 1 ½” x 1 ½”.  Using the Cherry Cobbler ink pad, stamp the holly berries.  Die cut these pieces using the coordinating dies from the Sending Cheer die set.
