Seasons of Sweets Designer Kit

Lots of busy activities over this past weekend.  Getting ready for the holidays, shopping, etc….What fun it was to make the cookies from the cookie press, as shown here.  The recipe was very easy to make the using the cookie press stamps on the cookie dough was even easier.   I was surprised by the simplicity and ease to use these for the first time.

And, then, package them up in Stampin’ Up’s! Season Of Sweets Designer Kit.  Can I just say, all the components you need to put them together are in this kit.  No stamping involved.  Put the finished cookie in the plastic bag, put it into the package, add your belly band and your label and you are done!  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!  Perfect for the non stamper, children to assemble, or anyone with limited time.

Merry Minis Punched Ornaments

Clean and simple is always my mantra! Why make it complicated?!  Another stamp in the Greetings of the Season stamp set is Noel.

Greetings of the Season

I used the Merry Minis Punch Pack to punch out ornaments with the red glimmer paper.  They are delightful and fun to use on any card with any cardstock or paper.

The sentiment is from “Greetings of the Season” from the Holiday Catalog….a gorgeous set of large sentiments that would look great on any Christmas card!

For a YST (Your Stamping Teacher) tip:  Using your ruler, make a line with your Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to look like the ornament is hanging.  Then, pop-up the ornament with a small piece of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Easy Events Meets Greetings Of The Season

The NEW Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is quite elegant, yet delightfully modern in appearance.

Easy Events, Greetings of the Season

What makes everything work is the sponging done in Early Espresso Classic Ink.  Each Very Vanilla cardstock layer is sponged, then Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals are added for eye-popping drama!

The holly stamp from Easy Events pairs nicely with Greetings of the Season found, of course, in the Greetings Of The Season Stamp Set, shown on page 8 of the Holiday Catalog.  You will want to order your supplies soon, as the Holiday Catalog ends January 2, 2013.  Visit my ONLINE STORE today to place your order and don’t forget to check out the Clearance Rack and the kits that Stampin’ Up! is offering.
