November DT project for Gina's Designs
Ah Yes, Its beginning to look alot like Christmas !!!.. ( well not here in Florida LOL But up north it is )
Hey Everyone, Jenna here. Just wanted to show you what I made for Gina's Designs DT Project for November !!..
Now THIS project was was truly a joy to make.. I love making ginger bread houses anyways, so when I saw this 3D gingerbread house kit in the DT package I was over the moon. Just looking at it makes me want to eat gingerbread cookies !!
Here is a little about how the project came together.
View of it lit up. I got the light from the dollar store, it is just a small bulb in a socket.... normally used with the ceramic Christmas village houses .
This is my Favorite Picture, the side view just makes me want to walk up and peer into the Window !!
Back View of the 3D Gingerbread House kit from Gina's Designs
Here is the side view of the house.. The shutters and Fence Piece came with the 3D Gingerbread House kit. I heat embossed the fence with holographic glitter embossing powder and then modified it to extend from the side of the house. The Icicles on all sides on the house are Actually separate pieces that I hot glued to the Roof once I had assembled it and then used Golden… pumice Gel, Extra Heavy Gel and white paint . I also used Glossy accents and Holographic Glitter over top of that to give it that shiny Icicle/Sugar coated look.
Full Frontal View of the 3D Gingerbread house Kit from Gina's Designs. The kit itself came with 6 structure pieces, two sizes of candy canes, Peppermint candy shapes, 2 Doors, 2 Door arches, 2 different size Shutter sets, Two Fencing Pieces, 2 small door shaped lattice pieces and 2 Large Lattice Pieces, 4 Icicle Strips and 2 gabled Icicle Strips.

Mirrored Gingerbread Dude was found at the Dollar store .The Frosting/Snow Effect was Created using a combination of Golden pumice Gel, Extra Heavy Gel and white paint . I also used Glossy accents and Holographic Glitter over top of that to give it that shiny Icicle/Sugar coated look
I was playing with photo angles.
This is a close up of the back.. I used the peppermint shaped chipboard
laser cuts that are embossed with recollections red tinsel embossing
powder and the bigger ones are heat embossed with White and and
holographic Glitter. The shutters were embossed the same way. The paper used if the Nutcracker Suite From Graphic 45. I used velum in the windows to Simulate frosted glass and made cute little curtains out of scraps.
My Favorite Part of the this project was creating the Roof, as with the rest of the project, I used Graphic 45 Nutcracker suite paper, I cut 1.5 inch squares and alternated the patterned of Candy Stripes. I heat embossed the peppermints with Recollections embossing powder in Red Tinsel (Glittery Red) and a pearl paper backing. The Frosting/Snow Effect was Created using a combination of Golden pumice Gel, Extra Heavy Gel and white paint . I also used Glossy accents and Holographic Glitter over top of that to give it that shiny Icicle/Sugar coated look.
Well I know I had fun making it, and I hope you enjoyed looking at it ... I also hope that everyone has a wonderful Holiday and A great new year !!..
