CDS Sneak Peek - Baked for You

This new set, Baked for You illustrated by Lori McCroskey will be available November 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps. If you like to give baked goods as holiday presents or as a hostess gift this set is definitely for you. My first sample I thought would be perfect to put hot chocolate supplies in. I love a hot chocolate to keep me warm in the winter - mmmm.... The white space where I have stamped "Stir, sip and savor" will fit the different sentiments from the set so you can customize it to almost anything you want to.

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Gina K, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip
INKPADS: Versamark Frost Dazzle, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: Nestabilities, Half Back Pearls, Ribbon, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Gift Box (SU)

My second sample uses two different stamps from the set, a cookie and then the circular sentiment "a little taste of heaven". You'd laugh if you knew the story behind the cookies.... So I'm about as good of a baker as I am a cook.... If you know me, I'm not that great at either. Can you believe I almost messed up the easiest cookies to make (they're Pillsbury - right out of the pack!!!). Almost a hockey puck was created but not quite. I made the cookies in the morning and left a note saying DO NOT TOUCH as I needed them for this project. I get home from work that day and all I hear throughout the evening is my brother saying "Have you taken a picture yet - I want those cookies!" Let's just say, he didn't mind the hockey puck consistency of my cookies and they all ended up in bellies of the ones I love.

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Gina K, Pretty in Pink, watercolor paper
INKPADS: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: Circle Punch, Scalloped Circle Punch, Tombow Markers, Aquapainter, Half Back Pearls, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Cellophane Gift Bag
