{Paper Smooches} Roll With It, inspired by Gymboree + Video!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family in the U.S.!


This card was inspired by the gingerbread man pyjamas at Gymboree. As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly which stamps I would use to replicate it. I used the rolling pin from Kitschy Kitchen (Kitchen Icons), the gingerbread man from Giddy Gumdrops (Gumdrops Icons), a sentiment from Calorie Free, and shadows from the Shadows stamp set.




The patterned papers are from the Jubilee Wild Berry paper pad by My Mind's Eye. The enamel dots are from the Charmed collection. They were originally white and I coloured them with a R27 Copic marker to coordinate with the hat. I added shimmer to the icing on the gingerbread man and white parts on the hat with a Wink of Stella pen.


See you again tomorrow for the Paper Smooches DT Blog Hop! We have another big release for you and it's fantastic!!

Really cute card, Emily! Love your Gingerbread Boy and how you placed the rolling pins (just like the pj's in the photo)! Great idea to double stamp the shadow, too...Thanks!
