Merry Christmas! I hope you have “decked the halls”, “shopped until you dropped” and “jingled all the way” to wherever it is that you are going because it is time to bake Christmas cookies!

Remember yesterday when I showed you these Santa cookies? Remember when I told you that Santa cutter quickly became my favorite cutter? The truth is I bought the set because the reindeer cutter and not the Santa cutter. The reindeer made my heart skip a beat when I saw it. It is the most adorable reindeer cutter I’ve seen in a long timeand I knew the reindeer cookies would be adorable.

  4. Stunning, Lisa!

  5. Hi Lisa,
    Your work is stunning! I love the air brush technique on it. I just cannot get myself to buy one. So intimidated by it. One of these days, just going to get the air brush gun.

  6. Oh my gosh…I WANT this cutter! So much so, that I headed right to the website to buy it! Sadly, I could not make myself pay almost as much for shipping as the cutter itself, so I had to pass :-(…it’s my biggest pet peeve!
    So, I will just enjoy yours…at least for this year!

  7. Lisa, I am so happy you did the tutorial for the reindeer. They came out adorable. Can’t wait for my shipment to arrive.

  8. I love this cutter, too!! Much better than others I’ve seen around town. Great find and cute cookie! :)

  9. These are the most elegant reindeer cookies, I’ve seen yet. I too love the cutter. It’s simple shape makes a really striking looking cookie.

  10. Lisa, I’ve never seen this cute reindeer cutter before and it is so cute. I love your color choices and the airbrushing finishes these off nicely. Happy Holidays!

    Love these guys, Lisa! And like you, I think I prefer them airbrushed, too! My fav is Rudolph with his big red nose! :)

    • I like them without the airbrushing but, I think the airbrushing is a great detail. But then again, I like to play with my airbrush gun! LOL

  12. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. And – I spy Rudolph in there! :)

  13. After the adorable Santa cookies, I knew it wouldn’t be long until you’d be sending out a little reindeer – Rudolph to be exact and I love him. You’ve got MAD airbrush skills!

    • Thanks Kim! I adore this reindeer cutter. It is such a great shape and I hope someday, we will have a lot of fun cookie cutters like this to chose from.

  14. Adorable!! I love that you added the “Lisa” touch by airbrushing them. :)

    • You made me laugh Mike! The true “Lisa touch” is spilling a bag of powdered sugar all over my shirt when making icing! LOL
