Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man

Isn't this just the cutest little gift?  I received one of these from my downline, Linda Wilkie, and right away I just had to case it.  I am offering this project at my classes this month. 
Recipe:  Stamp Set:  Sweet Season;  Paper:  Real Red, Crumb Cake, Basic Black CS;  Ink:  Basic Black, Chocolate Chip (to sponge the edges of the gingerbread man), Basic Black marker;  Accessories:  Scallop Border, Fancy Flower, 1" circle, and 1/4" circle punches, 1/4" Real Red gg ribbon.
The gingerbread man is a Little Debbie product, and is pre-bagged. 
To get the scallop border, I used a 4" x 3/8" strip of cardstock, punched the length of one side, turned the cardstock to the opposite side, and punched again.  If you have a Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim Bigz die, use the rick-rack portion of the die, just another option I found to be easy.
I used double-sided sticky tape to adhere the little bag to the topper.  Fun and easy.  I hope you will want to give it a try.

Tile Coaster

I made this tile coaster after watching Tami White demonstrate the technique on YouTube. Great concept to stamp on a plain ole' tile from the local hardware store and make a beautiful coaster. It was fun too.
What I did: Stamped on the coaster with black Stazon ink. Used a blender pen and chalks to color the leaves. Next I lightly, and I emphasize lightly, sprayed the tile with acrylic matte sealer and let dry. I put a piece of self adhesive felt on the bottom to protect my table, and done. Now, is that not easy or what!! I hope you give it a try.
Recipe: Stamps: With Gratitude (retired), En Francais; Paper: None; Ink: Black Stazon; Accessories: Blender Pen, Pastels (chalks), post-it note (to mask the leaves before I stamped the background stamp), matte acrylic sealer.

Word Play 5-Petal Flowers Card

I really enjoyed making this card because I was able to use my Big Shot for lots of it's parts.
Recipe: Stamps: Word Play; Paper: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White cardstock; Ink: Marina Mist; Accessories: 5 Petal flower punch, square lattice and framed tulips embossing folders, little leaves sizzlit die, brads, paper piercer tool, mat pack, and dimensionals.
I learned how to put this card together on Laurie Zoellmer's blog at:
Punch out nine Marina Mist flowers using the 5 Petal Flower Punch. Then run them through the Big Shot (113439) using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (119976). If you don't have a Big Shot, you could omit this step, they would be pretty not embossed too. For the leaves, use the Sizzlit Die, Little Leaves (114511) with Pear Pizzaz card stock,. To emboss the Whisper White card stock, use Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (121809). Hold the flowers together using a Rhinestone Brad. Glue the middle flower down and pop up the other flowers using dimensionals. I used the stamp set, Word Play for the words.(w 120308 c 120651).
Hope you give it a try, and please visit Laurie's blog, she has posted some fantastic cards and projects.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
