More with Stampendous!

Welcome back to the Perfect Paper Crafting Blog.. This month we are teaming up with Stampendous an showcasing some fun projects for Christmas! Today Holly is using the Gingerbread Baker to create a fun Holiday Card that can be enclosed with some Yummy Holiday Treats!
Be sure to check out the Stampendous blog for a chance to win great giveaways, and be sure to check out their Facebook page for other great crafting ideas!
I started out by die cutting the gingerbread from some Suede cardstock and then I added some shading around the edges with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I stamped the face and little buttons and colored them in with Colored pencils.
Then I die cut the accessory pieces included in the set. The apron, hat and bowl and than I added some color using Copic Markers. I adhered the pieces with some liquid glue and set the image aside.
I created a Green top folding card base and then I added some pattern paper and matted it using the Mini Perfect Layers tool and my craft knife. The I adhered the pattern paper panel to the card base.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of White cardstock and trimmed it into a banner and adhered it to the upper right corner of the card front. I added a piece of White ribbon around the card front as well and tied it into a bow. Then I adhered the gingerbread cookie with some foam adhesive.
Be sure to stop back by for some more great projects from the other Design Team members. Holly 
Our friend Julie Tucker-Wolek also made some adorable cards using some Stampendous goodies along with Perfect Paper Crafting tools. Check out below for some more inspirations!

Jumping For Joy

We are so pleased to kick of our new design team with this fabulous project from Jenny Gropp.How fun is this little old lady jumping for joy? She’s jumping up and down cause it’s not her turning older! Her name Lillie and its an image from the fun Art Impressions. After coloring her up with Copics I used a Wobble to pop her up so she wiggles and jumps as soon as you pick up the card.

Here are the Copics I used to color Lillie. She’s a little on the skinny side so I had to cut the wobble down so you don’t see it sticking out behind her. To trim in the tiny little areas I used an Xacto knife. I added a little jute string detail around the oval die cut… not as tedious as it seems. I used a fineline applicator to put a small line of glue down and just laid the string along the glue.

I’ve used my Mini Perfect Layer Rulers to add all the yummy layers on the card. The smallest ruler has a 1/16″ edge and its my favorite and most used… those skinny little layers are ideal for card size projects.

I die cut some border edges from the patterned paper and wanted to layer them up. I used the Perfect Ruler and my grid mat to hold everything in place and cut a clean measured edge.

On the inside I always use up the left over paper. Also if you have lots of layers on the front… carry it through to the inside for a nicely balanced and finished card.

To showcase the scene, tape it to a piece of black card-stock, then using the 1/16th inch ruler, cut to mat the scene!

Next I wanted a white layer before I mounted to a top fold A-2 card-base. Tape it to white card-stock and with the 1/8th inch ruler, cut to mat and then adhere to the pink card base.
