Kinderstampo Christmas in July Blog Hop!!

On the Fourteenth day of Christmas ...



There were gingerbread boys!  Lots and lots of gingerbread boys!  I purchased this wooden frame at Michaels for a mere $1.50.  I covered it with paper, framed the picture opening with a button garland on wire and made a woven ribbon background..... and my fun garland of gingerbread boys.  Fourteen to be exact!  The gingerbread boys were colored with Copic Markers (of course) and the stamp was a retired D.O.T.s rubber stamp.  You could use any stamped image or embellishment of your choosing to get the same effect.  The following is a short video on coloring my little gingerbread boy.  I hope you enjoy!!


Copics Markers used:
Gingerbread:  E99, E35, E53
Green:  YG67, G99, G20
Red:  R29, R22
Gold:  YR24, Y15, Y00

To add to the fun...I am giving away ONE FREE STAMP OF YOUR CHOICE to one lucky winner.  Just leave a comment here in the next couple of days, become a follower and you may win a free stamps from my own personal line at Shelley Bean Stamps!!  But wait....there's more....

Please stop by and check out my original and one of a kind rubber stamp designs.  If you make a purchase this weekend, during our blog hop I will also throw in a surprise! Just leave a comment there or shoot me an email when you order.

(and as always...free shipping within the United States!  Canadian friends..I will charge you actual shipping fees.  Email me if you want more info)
And now...the last, but by no means least stop, on this wonderful hop is here:
