A Sweet Day!

It was a "baking sort of day" so...I decided  to try out Stampin' Up's Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps.
I used the smiley Jack-O' Lantern face.

Here's what I did:
1. rolled dough into balls
2. flattened with a glass, dipped in sugar
3. dipped cookie stamp into sugar, then pressed into dough
4. used a biscuit cutter to trim away excess and to make uniform in size
5. baked at 350 for 10 min.

Here they are, hot from the oven!

Next, I decorated, trying sugars and using colored food coloring gel to paint on faces.
Fun fun!
