Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps!

Good evening blog readers.........yes I am posting at night. I have something exciting to show you. Stampin' Up! has a new product that will be available to you on October 1st. This new product is called "Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps". Because I am a demonstrator I was able to pre-order this set and tonight I tried them out.......look below:

For my first try I made the Sugar Shortbread Cookie. There are 2 recipes included with your cookie stamps. I rolled out my dough and stamped my cookie stamps (no ink required):

Snowflake cookie stamp:

Pumpkin face cookie stamp:

and Heart cookie stamp:

and then I cut out my cookies with a biscuit cutter. My first attempts, rolling a ball and flattening then stamping, resulted in a not so "clean" edge on my cookies. I tried again with the biscuit cutter and the edges are really, really nice looking:

Here they are all baked:

and the recipe is delicious! Here is the information you will need on October 1st:

Sales period: October 1, 2011 - January 3, 2012

Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps are a brand-new product that will appeal to crafters and non-crafters, alike--not to mention kids! The easy-to-use cookie stamp has a solid wood handle with three interchangeable stamp images: a heart, a jack-o-lantern, and a snowflake. Just make your favorite shortbread cookie dough (or one of the two included recipes) and stamp away! Create beautiful, hand-stamped cookies in a flash. The stamp images are completely food-safe and child-friendly.
