You should have arrived from Pam's blog if not you can start at Lisa's blog or the entire line up at the bottom of the page.

Today, I have for you my Kiwi Lane Gingerbread Man!  It took me a few versions before I came up with my favorite one.

Kiwi Lane: Traditions 6T, Sincerely 3A & 3B
Authentique Believe 6x6 and components
Die Cuts with a view Christmas ribbon
Queen & Co pearls
Ranger enamel accents white
misc satin ribbon & Craft Dee Bowz tool
pop dots

I thought it might be helpful for you to learn from my mistakes.  I used basically the same materials on this one but the lines with the enamel accents are not quite to my liking.

Kiwi Lane Traditions 6T, Bracket 4T
Stampin Up Stamp and punch Merry Everything
misc brad
and same papers and embellishments as above

Card #3 was really my first experiment.  I was not happy with the Liquid Pearl accents even when I put the pearl eyes on.  I added the lace to give it more vintage feel.

Kiwi Lane Traditions 6T, Sincerely 3A & 3B
Stampin Up stamp Festival of Trees
Stampin Up punch
Color Box olive ink
Liquid Pearls White opal
same ingredients as above

These 3 cards are projects #7, 8 & 9 with the 6x6 Authentique Believe paper pad

Next up is Anna!
