Products being revealed today are:

- Bake it Merry stamp set + die
I used the Make it Merry dies and stamps to create these gift tags and had so much fun putting them together!
Both tags start with die cut cookie sheets cut from silver foil cardstock. Then I die cut all the cookie shapes from heavy weight white cardstock, cutting and stacking two of each together for a little extra dimension.
I colored the cookies with Copic markers, using a darker shade of “golden brown” around the edges to simulate that baked look, and for the Christmas shaped cookies, I just drew around the edges of the white cookies with a tan Copic marker to suggest the browned cookie that shows outside of the white frosted area.
Then I covered the tops of the cookies with some Glossy Accents and sprinkled them with clear Glass Glitter to look like sugar.
The BAKE cookie was simple to make too! I die cut the frosting layers twice, once from white cardstock and again from red cardstock. Then I punched out the “sprinkles” from the white letters, glued it to the brown shadow die cut, added the tiniest drop of glue to each of the openings, then aligned the red die cuts over top of the white ones and used a pokey tool to push the tiny red shapes into their corresponding opening in the white frosting layer.
I ink blended and Copic colored the rolling pin, stamped and die cut the holly pot holder and die cut the oven mitt from patterned paper and fun foam. The Holiday Goodies sentiment is from the Bake Someone Happy stamp set and the “Bake yourself a merry little christmas” is from the Bake it Merry stamp set.
The next projects are little oven treat boxes made using the Bake Someone Happy Dies and Stamps! Just too dang CUTE!! I feel like I’m in a vintage appliance showroom, although interestingly, you can buy ovens in these colors even today!
This die set also includes a mini cookie sheet and all the kinds of cookies and spatulas and oven mitts and hot pads and HOOKS for the oven mitts and hot pads, and oven knobs and handles and burners and oh be still my beating HEART!
I die cut the avocado green oven of my youth, from Stamping Up Old Olive cardstock, the pink from MFT Tickled Pink cardstock and the blue oven from MFT Berrylicious cardstock. (Close color facsimiles are linked below.)
You can see how the oven door tucks into a slot just below the knobs (which are cut from black foil cardstock, as are the burners) and allows access to fill and empty the oven treat box.
The little candy canes and gingerbread boys on this baking sheet, are part of a confetti mix of Christmas treat sprinkles included in this release.
