STAMPlorations Christmas Release Day 1

Hello Crafty Friends!

STAMPlorations are doing a Christmas in August Release. They are releasing 6 stamp sets and 8 CUTplorations dies and, of course, are celebrating in true style with a Blog Hop starting today.

First up is this fun set designed by Becca under her label Big Grins by Becca Cruger. It is called Christmas Cookies & Cheer, a fun set and must have for any cookie or biccie (short for biscuit as we call them in the UK) lover.

As my DT project, I made a tag ready to adorn a bag of the homemade variety. Here it is:

I used some masking, tray first, the the apron, before stamping one of the sentiments into the background and adding a few snowflakes into the mix. I removed the masks, stamped and decorated the biscuits, added the rolling pin and a splash of colour and finished off with a sentiment, twine and a touch of Stickles.

Here is Becca's new set in full:
