Love Is In The Air

Hi Stampers!

Today is a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs and Loves Rubberstamps! I was lucky enough to be able to combine my Design Team Project for each one :)

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs the theme is all about LOVE! For my project I took an image called Sweet Cookies that I think is super sweet BUT she is at first glance an image for Christmas because she is really baking little gingerbread man cookies on her pan... WELL...I think she is sweet enough to be used for many occasions :)

I decided that for today little Miss Sweet Cookies would be baking little heart shaped, iced sugar cookies!



You can use this image ALL YEAR long...not just Christmas! You can get creative and make different shaped little cookies depending on what you are making it for! I am thinking little shamrock cookies for St. Paddy's Day...Small Easter Egg Cookies for Easter...Pumpkin Shaped for Halloween...little Turkeys for Thanksgiving...OR you could do the little standard circle shaped for whenever! 

Here is a close up of my image...



And the little cookies....


What I did for the pan was in the areas that had the gingerbread man ... I colored those in a darker shade with my copics. To create the little cookies I made little heart punchies and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then I placed Liquid Applique on the top and then sprinkled some chunky pink glitter on top. I smooshed the glitter into the liquid applique and then just let it dry. I did not heat it because I didn't want it to puff. The liquid applique dries the same color as you are using so it looks like smooth white icing, and it holds the glitter when it is dry as well. 

This project also fits in to our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week because it is ANYTHING GOES! Always a fun challenge! 

I hope you enjoyed my project today and that I gave you some inspiration on taking a look at your Christmas Stamps and see if there are ways you can use them all year round :)

Be sure to play along in BOTH of these fun challenges this week! Crafty Sentiments Designs - Love Is In The Air...and whatever you create for that one...it would also be eligible to enter in the Loves Rubberstamps Anything Goes Challenge as well :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
