Gingerbread Sketch tag

I tried my hand at something a little different. I used an svg file and my Cameo to draw these cute little ginger's.

I set up the pieces on my page how I wanted them. Then went back and "erased" the parts I didn't want to draw, like where the arms overlapped, etc. Once I had them the way I liked I set the Cameo to draw them with a white gel pen. I'm not entirely happy with the eyes but I can try something different next time. Other than that I'm very pleased with the look. 

Craft paper, The Paper Studio "Christmas Basics" stack, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Scraptastical Kreations "Gingerly Love" file (dad and dog), Unity Stamps "Tags, Glorious Tags" (to, from), white, red and green Gelly Roll Pens, red Stickles. The writing tool I use is from Hot Paws Creations.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've given you some inspiration! :)

Snowman and Rudolph Cookie Pops

Just finished up some cookie pops for a cookie exchange. I thought these might be something fun and different.

First up are the snowman cookies. I used Double Stuf Holiday Oreos, covered in Ghirardelli white chocolate. The eyes are Wiltons candy eyes, red licorice shoelaces and m&m's for the earmuffs. An orange TicTac nose and licorice shoelace for the mouth.

The Rudolph pops are the same Oreos covered in milk chocolate with mini pretzels cut in half (a real pain in the butt to do!), Wilton candy eyes, a mini Rolo and mini red m&m for the muzzle and nose. My son is the official taste tester and said these were "Oh my God delicious", lol.

Thanks for stopping by, hope I've inspired you to make something fun out of your cookies. ;)
