Monday, 23 November 2009's quick card!!

I cheated heavily on this! I used a wee gingerbread man panel that I had previously made and threw some ribbon around a piece of card!!

My gingerbread man is from the Oven fresh Gingerbread Joy set that is back in stock today in the store, Snowflake from Very Vintage Christmas set, also back in stock today!

I stamped and sponged while that circular bit of card was still in the circle spellbinders die. Added the sentiment after, and some stickles for buttons!

I just bought a couple of punches, fiskars, and I'm not sure if i like them, they cut paper fine but I was kinda hoping to use them on card too! lol.

The red gingham ribbon came from my local grocery store last Christmas! The black and white gingham is Offray I believe!

RE: the previous post! Many thanks for asking...

BTW - thanks for all the fab solutions for my cuttle-bugbear in the last post! excellent! I'm all set!

Also - Wellies - are Wellington Boots! rubber boots/galoshes?

"Cuttle bug on part of card only" - I'm no such genius - I just used a cuttlebug folder that was just a wee border - they are small skinny folders designed to only emboss part of the card!!

Yes, the ink still manages to stain the versamark pad, but I keep two - one for 'dirty' work, where I know the pad will get stained and a 'clean' one for stamping patterns or clear embossing! Hope that makes sense!!


  1. Ver cute card! I just love your little gingerbread men Claire! They are making their debut in my classroom next week. I know the kids will love 'em too!

  2. Adorable! Love the idea of using part of an image. Got to incorporate that! Wellies = boots! Who knew??

  3. Another cute card! Love how you used the little gingerbread man. So cute!

  4. Cute, cute, cute, Claire! I too take FOREVER to make just one card & don't really enjoy reproducing many (as for Christmas cards)! LOL!

  5. I love the pop of color the ribbon gives this cute card! I say hooray for the quick and easy ones as they are often the very best!

  6. I love your big tag and the fun ribbons behind Claire! The colors are super and I just love your gingerbread man!!

  7. Even when you cheat your projects come out gorgeous! This is just as sweet as it can be! BTW, I finally got your blinky up on my blog. I'm so proud to promote you! Hope you are well! Best, Curt
