Gingerbread Treats


I ordered this set a long time ago....and finally got it mounted and inky!! I collect Wizard of Oz items and thanks to my Mom, collect Gingerbread items too, so I was a shoe-in when I saw this set!! The 'snow' on the house and the feet & hands of the gingerbread boys have Liquid Applique added to them. I also used a clear Sakura stardust pen on the little 'candies' and other parts of the house. Coloring this made me want bake cookies!!
I felt like the lower left corner just needed 'something' so I added a gingerbread boy charm. I cut out a gingerbread boy image, leaving a small paper tab at the top of his head, punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile, added an eyelet and some silver cord. I love my Crop-a-dile---setting eyelets is SO much easier now. I used to ruin so many eyelets and images when I used a hammer & eyelet setter. Now, setting an eyelet takes me about two seconds. Hope you like this creation---and thanks for looking!!
