As I write this, it’s Sunday evening here on Long Island. There’s a little bit of wind, but nothing that resembles a storm, yet. But we are ready for Hurricane Sandy…battened down the hatches, stocked the cupboards and fridge, got the generator ready and gas cans filled. Bring it on! No, not really. I am not worried about no power as much as I am about tree’s coming down and causing serious damage. So…lets keep our fingers crossed and prayers going. Wishing safety to everyone in Sandy’s path the next few days!
Now, here’s a super quick project that’s really fun! I used the new Fresh Baked stamp set from Flourishes to create a label for my cookie package.
I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock. I stamped off the color a bit on scrap paper first so that it was a nice soft brown. I stamped the wording with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used a Copic black Multiliner to write in my name. I then used Wheat Ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop to ink around the image which was cut out with a Spellbinders Classic Circles large die and the mat with a Scalloped Circles die which I ran a gingham ribbon through.
I bought a package of these plastic boxes a couple of years ago at a stamp show and I forgot that I had them. It was perfect size for a single serve treat for a friend, neighbor, teacher, bus driver…you get the idea! I just cut a piece of patterned paper to fit inside the box which I adhered with a tiny bit of tape so it would stay on the bottom. I’m gonna make a bunch for the holidays!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy start to their week!
