Hi and welcome! Today I have another Sizzix tutorial for you, for a pastel gingerbread house. I had such fun making this and it almost looks good enough to eat. Follow along to see how I got a shimmery glittery house without using any dry glitter.
I had such fun creating this pastel house and it makes me happy just to look at.
The base, as well as the step piece (which I forgot to include here), were covered with Distress Grit-Paste. I used the same paste for the ground of my Halloween Manor House, but painted it gray. If you leave it white, it looks like snow or frosting. I love this stuff. When it was completely dry, I misted the Grit-Paste with the Mica Spray. This gave a wonderful subtle shine to it, which was impossible to capture on photo. Later, I also added some Icicle Stickles.
I made a gingerbread house with the Village Dwelling die last year too, you can find that Gingerbread House tutorial here, if you want more inspiration. I wanted this house to look different which is why I went for a pastel look instead.
Here you can see what the house looks like with a battery-driven tea light inside. It shines beautifully through the vellum windows.
These houses are also great projects for kiddies crafting and children will love to embellish their own gingerbread house. Last year Anton and his friend made their own gingerbread houses and loved it. I did all the die cutting first and assembled the house. They got a bunch of embellishments and had fun customizing their houses. You can read more about it and see their houses in my original Gingerbread House Tutorial.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
