Whimsical Designs Sneak Peek Day 2!

Hello everyone and welcome to day 2 of the Whimsical Designs Sneak Peek Week! In case you have not heard the news yet Stephanie of Whimsical Designs has a new line of stamps coming out. Today all of the Whimsical Designers will be giving you sneak peeks of the other 2 sets. The first 2 sets were shown yesterday. Tonight at 7:00pm EST is the stamp reveal blog hop. All stamps set's will be available for purchase on Stephanie's blog, in her new shop. Here is my project:
Blog Hop Changed to Tomorrow Morning



In order to give everyone more time to leave comments under the post for the two day stamp sneak peeks the blog hop will start tomorrow, December 3 at 7:00am EST. You have until 12:00am EST tonight to leave comments under all of the designers post for the sneak peeks from yesterday and today. All of the winners of the stamps will be announced, along with the winner of the entire stamp release, tomorrow morning on the Whimsical Designs Blog.



I made this gingerbread house gift box. I cut the box from Sweet Tooth Boxes at 8 inches. This included the cuts for the windows, door, sign, and roof. I added velum paper on the inside of the box to the windows and used a white gel pen to do the stripes on all the windows and the door. I cut strips of glitter white paper for the roof edges and a 12 inch strip for the snow at the bottom. The tree I made by cutting 3 equal triangles and folded them in half and glued them together to get the 3D tree. The sentiment on the sign and the candy canes were stamped from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun stamp set. I stamped the candy canes, colored them with copics and cut them out and glued them to the sides of the roof. The sign I cut out of black and also white to get the sign. I stamped the Candy Cane Lane and drew in the candy cane top and bottom and colored it with copics. I hope you like my project! I think is turned out so super cute!
