Back to school cookies and new cutters

You probably already know Ann Clark and their wonderful cookie cutters, all made in the USA. I partnered with them and we created our first two shapes together: the paint brush and the palette. Combined with their rectangle and pencil cutters they make an awesome back to school set.

  This is the paint palette cutter and the cookie version.

Here is the paint brush cutter with some cookies.

And the mini set together. 
Just these two shapes can make a fun, cheerful gift for any aspiring artist.

 The Ann Clark pencil cutter to go with them.

 And the rectangle can make a blackboard cookie and a ruled paper cookie.

I re-opened my Etsy shop, so you can get all they supplies I use and you were always asking me about. I added this fun set to the store.

Finally, you can watch how I decorated these cookies:

Say "thank you" with cookies

Thank you cookie set with swirl roses and sanding sugar by Tunde Dugantsi

I always like to work with generic shapes. There is so much you can do with a square or an oval cookie! For this set I just grabbed an assortment laying around and started to play with them.

I always have icing transfer flowers in stock. Whenever I have some left over icing and some spare time I make some flowers. These little swirl roses are shades of Americolor dusty rose. I start with a color, then when I don't have enough icing in the bag to continue piping I mix some white to it to get the next shade. I repeat this once more to have three shades of the same color.

I store my flowers in plastic containers and list the extra in my Etsy store. This way, whenever I need some flowers I have a nice stash to choose from.

The other color for this set is yellow and to make it interesting I added some texture by sprinkling sanding sugar on the flood icing. This looks just as good for me as disco dust, but it's all natural from TruColor. I love these sanding sugars, but I did not like the plastic jars they came in. So I bought spice jars to store them. The great news is, TruColor just came out with a new packaging: spice jars. They should be available in stores soon!

Here you can watch how I made these cookies, enjoy!
