Fresh Baked is such a fun set. It's perfect for creating packaging for baked goods and treats, or for creating a gift package for those cooks in your life. I decided to put together a little gift basket for today using our newest card stock color and pigment ink, Cranberry Crush. I started with some store bought wooden utensils and cookie cutters. Then I put Fresh Baked to work creating some custom pieces.
To the basket I've added a hand stamped flour sack towel, a birthday card and some custom stationery and tags for the recipient to use. Here's a look at what's included with the stationery.
All of the images and sentiments used are included in Fresh Baked. It is packed to the brim with images and sentiments of all sizes. I just love how neutral Cranberry Crush is. It's a rich earthy red with a hint of purple and brown.
For the towel, I arranged my images on one block and just stamped repeatedly covering the entire towel using Palette Ink. I just love that little pot that I've used on the card. That's actually 3 different stamps, the pot, the sentiment and the lid. Here, I decided to emboss all of them in white to keep the design super simple and clean.
These kinds of sets are actually very quick to put together when you keep the design simple, but sure do make a statement upon presentation.

My next card is definitely NOT short on color. I decided to pair Fresh Baked with Quilt Prints.
How fun is that?! I used Quilt Prints along the top and bottom of my card to add tons of pattern and interest. There are two borders, a solid outline and a faux stitched outline, along with 10 different fillers to create your own custom patterns.
I used the Fresh Baked Companion Dies along with their coordinating images to create a cute little scene. That sentiment is also from Fresh Baked. Another font combination that I am loving.
How about another super simple one?
I used the little accent image included in Quilt Prints along with a sentiment from Fresh Baked. As much as I love detail, there's just something about a simple design with minimal color that makes me so happy.

Pretty Patches:Umbrella is the most recent addition to our Pretty Patches series. Many of you have requested more and I thought and umbrella was perfect for April. And the sentiment is just as heartfelt as the others in this series.
For my last sample today, I wanted to create a few baby cards and tags. I have quite a few baby showers in my near future and I don't know yet if I'll need pink or blue, so....I made both!
They seriously don't get any easier than this. I die cut umbrellas from our Ballet Slippers and Lake House card stock. A coordinating tag finishes it off and now I'm ready for those showers.
Whew! That finishes all of our formal introductions. But luckily the Design Team will be bringing us more inspiration over the next couple of weeks. I can't wait!I really hope you have enjoyed the previews. Tomorrow you get to see them all and get a chance to win it all before you can buy it!
