Gingerbread Girl

Tonight, I am going to an employee Christmas Party for a Waikiki hotel which happens to be one of my sweeties's accounts ( that's why we get to go) Everyone was given a gingerbread person shape to decorate for a contest. So, here's my entry, #53.
Ginger Girl has a beautiful tan thanks to some Bazzill cardstock. She was sweetened up with some White Scribbles paint icing all around her outline. Her cute dress has a bodice of Bazzill cardstock and a coordinating printed skirt courtesy of Doodlebug Designs. It is cinched at the waist with a sassy velvet bow made from American Crafts ribbons. Her Santa hat was found in the Christmas ornament aisles of Ben Franklin Crafts.

Her icing got a little messy and she got some under her chin. So, just like in the old T-shirt painting days, I needed something to cover it up. I thought, since it's a Christmas Party, why not hold a wreath? Her wreath was made by cutting off the branches from a tinsel pick spray. Twisted them together into the circle shape. Cut some berries off another pick and glued them on. Wrapped a flashing bulb necklace around for added bling!

I know you can't tell but she's actually quite large. The cut-outs they gave us  were over 12" tall. I don't care if I will win, I really just want to see what creative ideas other people do, that's the fun part!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend everybody!


  1. Awww so cute Joy~
    I just hope you get something for your gingerbread girl... she's so cute..... love all that detailing you did to her.....

  2. Wow! You really did a great job with the Scribbles icing. I thought that it was rickrack trim. I believe that some of the best creations are the result of covering up mistakes. Your gingerbread man is cute. Good luck with the competition. You should have put your Joy of Crafting logo on the wreath...but maybe they would have disqualified you. LOL!

  3. Hi Joy,
    Your Gingerbread Girl is cute. I'm with Lynn, I thought your Scribbles was rickrack too.
    Hope you see a lot of good ideas when you're at the party.

    Hoku is getting better everyday, I'm so glad. Thank you for you sweet and caring comment.

    Hugs to you.

  4. She's cute enough to eat. Love her dress, I think she's a winner! Have fun at the party!
