Tim Holtz Gingerbread House Die with Shari Carroll

Happy Friday! It’s Shari here with another house from the Tim Holtz Village dies series.

When I first thought of doing this Gingerbread house, I was thinking pastels and sugary treats. But then my inner grey kicked in and I went with modern Peppermint inspired colors.


I used the Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock as the base for my house, it’s so stunning and contrasts well against the white and red.


The roof is made of three colors Fog, Schoolhouse Red and White. Using color cardstocks makes coordinating easy, I used less than a full sheet of each color.


I have put together two videos for this project, you can view them below or on our YouTube channel; Part One and Part Two.

I hope I’ve inspired you to create a village for the holidays!

And before I go, Happy Veterans Day!

  1. I love watching you put these houses together. I so wish I had the money to buy them because they look like they’d be so much fun to do. Thanks for sharing. Look forward to your next house adventure!

  2. Oh my goodness!! I can’t believe this as I just received the village dwelling base bigz XL die a couple of days ago and the gingerbread bigz is waiting on my “never ever gonna end” wish list as I am hoping to make a couple of these to give as gifts for Christmas! I love your contemporary version and it’s giving my brain a little nudge as to making different versions of ginger bread houses!!

  3. LOVE Tim’s house series of dies!! I have a few of them and this one is tops on my list of ones to get!!! You did an awesome job making your house look totally adorable!! TFS!

  4. I love this project. Great tutorial videos too. They are long but you have a nice voice and speak well, so it’s really time pleasantly spent.
