Frosting Cookies (edible and paper!)

Before getting started, I wanted to let you know about the crazy overstock sale at Ellen Hutson – holy guaca-craftsupplies! If you know there’s Christmas money coming to your stocking, you might wanna shop while there’s stuff left – sale ends Dec 19th…Merry Christmas to YOU! 

It’s Christmastime and I always look to share special treats with you…today we get to color with Copics – AND frosting!

Frosting Cookies (edible and paper!)

The Tiny Tags dies and stamps provided me with the *perfect* opportunity to do a doubletake…the dies looked like tiny cookies, so I colored them with markers….and then a friend of mine has a new cookie business, so I asked if she’d make me cookies I could tie my tags to. She did me one better and invited me to come learn how she does her cookie magic! Both are included here so you can enjoy two types of frosting…enjoy!

The reindeer were our main cookie of course…she took a gingerbread man cookie cutter shape and turned it into these darling reindeer! (I need a gingerbread man die now! lol!)sandy-allnock-frosting-cookies-reindeer

Sheila had a giant rack full of cookies-in-waiting, so while we waited for our reindeer to dry enough to transport, she set me to work decorating some snowmen. I tried out a little airbrushing to give them shadows, because…yeah, well, just because. LOL.

And she also had some big square cookies she had made as little palettes for me to try out airbrushing. She hasn’t done much so hoped I would show her tricks but – ha – this was hard! Not much like my Copic airbrush, and I had some challenges with controlling it. But it was fun to goof around with it!
