Gingerbread Baker Homemade by Debi Hammons

Time to wrap up this week of goodies using Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamps and Die Set, but there is one more round of inspiration to share with you.

Just when you think that every idea has been done using a product there is another idea that will come around waiting to be whipped up into a project.

Gingerbread Baker Bowl by Wendy Price

The projects up until now have been focused on our sweetest gingerbread man, but if you set him aside and use the rest of the dies you’ll find more great projects as did Wendy with this super cute card using the bowl die.

Gingerbread Baker Tag by Janelle Stollfus

What about a cook’s gift tag? Janelle used the apron and hat along with the border pattern stamps for this festive tag, it even has the heart from the bowl stenciled on the apron pocket.

You can create tons of projects with this stamp and die set for more than the holidays, just change the colors and it can be a great summer set for a cook-out or grilling theme!

That’s all from us here on our blog and there is more on our designer’s blog, too!

Gingerbread Baker Sweater by Janelle Stollfus

The fun in our weekly theme is arriving on Thursday to see what stencils we’ll add in the mix, but today there is a twist and it could be just about any one of our stencils!

We’ve given our Gingerbread Baker a personal day off and out of the kitchen so we can inspire you with some stenciling idea.

Janelle created a colorful sweater for our baker with Ornate Christmas Tree Stencil to make the sweater on the first card in this post. Use any stencil to make a colorful design and create a oodles of tops, dresses and pants. All you need are a few sticky notes, ink pads, stencil brushes or sponges and a fresh cut Gingerbread Baker.

Gingerbread Baker Jump Rope by Janelle Stollfus

This gingerbread gal is smiling much wider as she’s enjoying some time jumping rope. That super smiling face was made using the shape templates on the Picasso Shield/Stencil tool. Create more expressions just by changing the angles or choosing a different shape!

Loads of Tidings For Christmas

Truck Tidings by Debi Hammons

It’s a Christmas tradition to have a fresh tree to decorate but what could be easier than loading it in the back of a truck? Maybe stamping it in the back of our Truck Tidings Cling Stamps and Die Set!

Debi Hammons created this tradition, shown above, by masking off the decorations making it look like a great, and easy, way to carry on the tradition through Christmas cards and scrapbook pages.

Truck Tidings by Fran Seiford

A very happy Monday to everyone and for our US peeps, have a great Labor Day holiday! Even though the U.S. postal service won’t be out for delivery today we are transporting our own holiday parcels because whether we want to believe it or not, it’s time to cruise through our July catalog of holiday goodies! We have a full line-up of themes that will take us right up until New Year’s to share and it’s time to get trucking through the holidays!

Our theme this week is all about getting those presents delivered on time and Truck Tidings really delivers tons of choices! This set includes images for a truck, presents and a decorated tree that are manufactured in our deeply etched rubber cling mount stamp each with a matching die, plus a perfectly suited sentiment to complete the set!

To get great ideas and an awesome tip on how to create masks, watch this short video with Fran Seiford.

We’ll be back again on Wednesday with more inspiration!
