Gingerbread Joy!

The Stampendous Design Team has been busy for the last several months creating lots of samples with the great new stamps and stencils that were released in July and we are so happy to share them with you! This week's theme of "Baked Just For You!" features the adorable Gingerbread Baker set (CSD07).
Yesterday I shared the new Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamp and Die Set   on a fun little bag, perfect for sharing cookies with teachers, friends, mailman, whoever!

Today I've created a fun card from this versatile set and a background from the Dreamweaver Stencils line:
