Ginger Joy Tag

Hi Everyone! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! This treat bag was featured on the Penny Black blog yesterday.

I absolutely adore the Ginger Joy stamp by Penny Black. Its so simple, so cute, so easy to customize, embellish and use again and again. Plus its a cling stamp so its easy to store (bonus!).

First I stamped the gingerbread man on kraft cardstock. I added a few brown shades of distress ink to his body for a "fresh out of the oven" look. The hands and feet were pieced with fabric. I love the extra interest and texture that fabric adds. You will see me use it again. ;) The berries are clear gems colored with permanent marker. Finally, I mounted him on a simple tag and added a few simple borders and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
