You've Got This

I LOVE this new stamp set! It will be available when the new catalog goes live on June 2nd. I just adore this color pairing of Lost Lagoon with the new Mint Macaron:)
I learn all kinds of interesting things on the Stampin' Up! Demo board. For instance there are two types of cookies, a macaron and a macroon. I didn't know there was a difference. Because of our new color, Mint Macaron, I now know.

Macarons are made of almond meringue cookies sandwiched together with buttercream, ganache, or jam.
macaron is pronounced Mack-ah-ron (sounds like the name Ron)

A coconut macaroon is a drop cookie made of egg whites, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and coconut. They are most commonly dipped in chocolate, as well. This style of macaroon is most commonly found in Italian bakeries, and in many bakeries throughout the U.S. 
macaroon is pronounced Mack-ah-roon (sounds like kangaroo).

  2. Hi Carole,
    I saw your beautiful cards on Splitcoast ~ did you fussy cut the flowers? Or did you mask? I think you have convinced me that I need this stamp set even though I'm drowning in floral images already!
