GINGERBREAD HOLIDAYS

Hey there stampers, it's day four of the Our Craft Lounge/May Arts product swap.  I've been so inspired by what the designers have been posting; such a talented group of ladies!  The product swap is just about over but the fun isn't stopping there...Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week will be the Sneak Peeks and Blog Hop for OCL's new release (20 sets including their new singles).  You won't want to miss it!

Today I'm combining May Arts beautiful wired ribbon with two OCL sets: Gingerbread Fun and Sweet Holiday. I borrowed Gingerbread Fun from a friend and after playing with it...it made my gotta have it list. I think these two sets look great together!

The gingerbread house is a Sizzix die and was super easy to assemble.  Stamps from both sets were used to accent the windows and door.  The center of the heart really pops with Crafty Sparkles and puff paint was used on the roof line of the bag and card.  A bow and tag complete the treat bag.

The card has a simple layout. The images were stamped with black ink then colored with Copic markers. Glossy Accents was used on all of the candy.  The tan card stock was embossed and the sentiment was curved around the die cut.  A bow finishes off the card and a gingerbread man was cut out and attached as an accent.

Well I guess that's it for today.  I hope you stop back by tomorrow to see my last OCL/May Arts product swap project.  Also stop by The Lounge and May Arts Ribbon Blog for a list of participating designers.  Don't forget to leave comments for a chance at the May Arts ribbon blog candy.  There are a lot of ways to win...every day, leave comments on:
