I love how this turned out! This is a project that my downline created for our last demonstrator meeting. I used Pretty Petals background, versamark and silver embossing powder to emboss the tin. Then I wrapped some soft suede specialty designer series paper around the tin. I added a dusty durango scallop behind the belly band and a bird and flower from the Bird w/leaves and flower sizzix die. Lastly, I rubbed some soft suede some sahara sand cardstock cut out with the exclusive Stampin' Up! "Hi" embosslit.

I had so much fun decorating this cd tin with my Sizzix dies! I used the Sizzix Texturz die on the bashful blue cardstock to create the diamond texture and layered it on some chocolate chip cardstock. Then I used the Flower Layers with Leaf die for the flower in so saffron and barely banana with a brad from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware as an accent in the middle of the flower. I added some chocolate chip double stitched-grosgrain and "for you" from the Great Friend stamp set layered with a certainly celery scalloped oval.

These Peek-a-boo boxes are so fun to make! They are perfect for candy or other little gifts. The design comes from Qbee. The template can be found in this post. For this box, I started with a piece of 9 1/2" x 4 regal rose cardstock scored at 1", 3", 4", 6", 7", and 9" on the 9 1/2" side and 1" and 3" on the 4" side.
Here is the box opened. I got my Holiday Mini Catalog preorder this week and I'm working on some fun things to show you so stay tuned!

Here is another card from the catalog using crushed curry, soft suede and melon mambo. I scalloped the crushed curry and then tore some very vanilla across the top and placed it on the crushed curry. I used Matchbox Messages to frame the flower from It's Time to Bloom and added a little certainly celery medallion with a dimensional.

I still can't get away from this beautiful Cottage Wall DSP. I loved this card by Mary, so I tweaked it a little to make it my own. I used the "plate" (doesn't it look like a fancy plate?) stamp from the Gallery stamp set and punched out the sentiment from Matchbox Messages stamp set to place in the middle. I stamped the butterfly on the Cottage Wall DSP and then punched it out with the butterfly punch (love it!). I loved Mary's idea of stamping a flower, then punching it out with the 1/2" circle punch and placing it on our new large brads.
