Peachy Keen Stamps & KaDoodle Bug Designs Celebrate Christmas Hop

Welcome to Day #5 of the KaDoodle Bug Designs and Peachy Keen Stamps Christmas in July Facebook Hop! It's been looking a lot like Christmas around here despite the warm summer weather. We have some amazing projects to share with you all week long from both of our very talented design teams, as well as some great prizes to be won!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Tamara's Facebook Page if you're hopping along in the right order.  If you just happened upon this post then you'll want to go back to the KaDoodle Bug Designs and pick this up from the beginning so you don't miss one single amazing creation or a chance to win a fabulous prize!

For my project today I'm using the Baking Gingers SVG File from KaDoodle Bug Designs

I enlarged the Ginger Head file for a 5x5 card (a little bigger with the bow) and cut it with creamy caramel card stock.  I cut this file with my Silhouette Cameo and used the weld feature to make the head shape into an actual folded card.  I wanted to give the paper a look of actually being painted, so I did a lot of sponging with creamy caramel, soft suede, close to cocoa and very vanilla ink from Stampin' Up!  Cheeks were added using chalk and white highlights were added using a white Gelly Roll Pen from Peachy Keen Stamps.  The adorable face was stamped with the PK-04 4"  Shading details were added in using Copic markers.  I used the PKSC-31 July 2014 Stamp of the month for the banner and sentiment.

My sweet little shaped ginger card was finished off with crystal glitter from Martha Stewart and a bow with button for embellishment.

Below, please find  the details about prizes and how you can win.  Your next stop on this fabulous hop will be at my dear friend Lisa Buttafuoco's Facebook Page.  I KNOW she's got something absolutely amazing to share with you!

So reminiscent of past times together. This beautiful piece of art is a typical Lorie masterpiece!
I still can't believe it's coloured not painted. But that makes this work even more amazing! Love this and love you my friend. xxx
