A Plate of Goodies


Do you like to dress up "goodies" you give away?  I thought I would post a band I created for a plate of cookies that is going to a new neighbor.  I used the eBosser "Dainty Dots" embossing folder to emboss a band that goes around this plate of cookies then decorated the top with the new Heartfelt Creations "Decorative Lattice Swirl" die for the background.  The flowers were created using the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #2" dies and embellishments.  The pretty leaves are from the Heartfelt Creations "Beautiful You PreCut Set" and die cut using the matching die from the "Decorative Flower Pot" die set.  The daisies were die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Darling Daisies" dies and the stamens in the daisies are from the BAF #2 Embellishments dies.  I used a very old JustRite stamp set called "Homemade Treats" for the "Fresh Baked" label.  

The new Flower Dies by Susan Tierney Cockburn have arrived at Joan's Gardens.  I will be posting these new flowers, and some tutorials, very soon.   Susan is the one who wrote the "Paper Bouquet" book that we have been using to learn to create flowers; she has come out with a whole new line of flower dies, tools, and supplies we are very anxious to work with.   If you haven't seen these new dies, you will want to check them out over at Joan's Gardens.  Joan does have a reduced price on all her products plus she only charges you exact postage, which is a great savings.
