First, this box was created using the cool technique called a Slider Box. The tutorial can be found on Splitcoast Stampers HERE. When you pull the drawer open, a message slides out on the other end (as shown in the first picture).

For the top of box, I stamped the gourmet label with not quite navy ink onto coordinating designer paper then I cut out (removing outer oval on frame). I stamped another label with pear pizzazz ink onto pear designer paper and then cut out entire label. Layer the 2 pieces with dimensionals. Cup was stamped, cut out and attached with dimensional (jewel brad in center). For the top and bottom of box, I used the Nestabilities Label #8 die.
For this next card, I wanted to use this same pretty sparkly paper (from DCWV). The ribbon is silk seam binding from Stampin' Up. It looks so much prettier in person with all of the sparkly paper!
For my last card, I combined a greeting from each stamp set to make my own special greeting. The cupcake is a builder punch from Stampin' Up!. I inked up part of the "You're my cup of tea" stamp from the Tea Party set and stamped that first. Then I stamped the "Sugar" from the Yummy Food Labels set. This paper was all glittery as well. Too bad you can't tell from the pictures. I guess I was on a pink and blue kick this week!
