Aged to Perfection Birthday Card

This is a great stamp set for almost any occasion.  It is from Fiskars and called Aged to Perfection and is a clear stamp set.  The sentiment on the outside reads "Heard it through the grapevine" and on the inside "Like fine wine you only get better with age!"  I thought this would make a great birthday card for the wine connoisseur. 
The cardstock used is Stampin Up Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and white.  I embossed the first layer with the Stampin Up embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper.  I also used a purple and gold wire ribbon on this layer.  For the next layer, I used the grapevine stamp and Always Artichoke ink.  The grapes were stamped, colored with Copic BV17 Deep Reddish Blue and G99 Olive, cut out and layered on top.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out using the Nestabilities Petite Oval Small and Petite Oval Scallop Small.

Cupcake Gift Box

Isn't this just the cutest gift box you have ever seen?  I created this using a metal hinged tin, the size of an Altoid box.  I used Stampin Up Create a Cupcake Builder punch with some old Baby Blue designer paper and Chocolate Chip cardstock to create the cupcakes.  The background designer paper is Elegant Soiree.  The box has been trimmed with Chocolate Chip grograin ribbon.

Wedding - Love

Another wedding card.  This one I created with Stampin Up Apricot Appeal and White cardstock.  The embossing folder used to emboss the white layer, is from Sizzix Thank You #5 set.  I used Flower Fest stamp set and 5 Petal Punch to create the layered flower.  Both of these are from Stampin Up.  Apricot Appeal grograin ribbon is placed under the flower.  The sentiment is Stampin Up Wonderful Words.

For the Newlyweds

Getting ready for all of those spring and summer weddings!  Created this card with Stampin Up Red Riding Hood, Always Artichoke and White card stock.  I purchased a new embossing folder that I just love. It is Sizzix Wreath and stamped the image inside the wreath.  It was colored with Copics R35 Coral, R37 Carmine and G99 Olive. Placed olive green organza ribbon underneath Stampin Up Decorative Label punch and layered on top with Extra Large Oval and Large Oval punches.  The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin Up.

Fine Silver Script Pendant and Earrings Set

This is a beautiful Fine Silver Pendant and Sterling Silver set.  The pendant was created with Fine Silver Art Clay.  It was stamped with a script stamp and torch fired.  I used patina gel to darken the silver and bring out the design on the pendant.  It is finished with Swarovski Crystals and a freshwater cultured pearl and hangs on a 18 inch Sterling Silver chain. 
The earrings are Sterling Silver and have the same Swarovski Crystals and freshwater cultured pearl.  The earrings are 1 3/8 inches long.
