Embossing Cookies


Embossed Cookies...for real!!!!

Now I realize to some of you use your embossing folders to emboss your shaped cookies may be sooo last year.  But I JUST saw this and was like...O.M.G.EEEEE!  Now why didn't I think of that.  I feel awful, I can't link the blog I found it on.  I was scrolling Pinterest when I saw the picture and I guess I didn't pin it.  Really sorry, I think it's SOOO important to link the blogs we find stuff on. 

My apologizes on the photo's, it's overcast here this morning.  And despite the whole rear of my house being glass the pictures still turned out dark:(

I'm still Holiday Baking (7 batches of Biscotti yesterday) and these are my Moms Shortbread.  Sorry, not allowed to share the recipe.  However, I changed it up and used this new little cutter I picked up.  This recipe yielded 70 cookies.  Make sure you wash your folder in hot water and soap first!


LOL...This is NOT one of those fancy Gourmet Blogs.  It's a craft blog so my counter is a direct reflection of my craft desk...messy but produces greatness!  *SNICKER*


I positioned the pattern on the folder to center on the cookie then pressed firmly. 


This is  Stampin Up Folder, Vintage...something?


Here are all 70 of my cookies...with my mess!  And a bag of caramels for the Chocolate Turtle Cookies I made next. 


Thanks for stopping by.  Have you thought of embossing your cookies and done it?  If you have let me know.  I feel like I'm the last to know!

Let me know if you're going to try this too?

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
