Raspberry Tart Best Wishes Card

Here is the card I designed for the shoebox swap tomorrow. Yes! I actually came up with the entire design (for once)! I hope everyone likes it. There will be 10 demonstrators there (at Jeri's house). We are having a chili supper and lots of goodies. We will go around and make 1 of everyone's sample.
I just love this paper! I want to order a couple more packages.
Supplies (all Stampin Up)
Stamp Set: Best Wishes & More
Paper: Raspberry Tart DSP, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette
Ribbon: Old Olive
Ink: I used craft (Rose Red) on the bird and embossed him with clear EP. For the verse, I used Black Stazon
Other: Scallop Border Punch, Dimensionals, snail adhesive

Frap Bottle (Best Wishes & More)

Here is a quick little project using a recycled Frapuccino bottle (Starbucks brand from the grocery store).
To get the label off the Frap bottle: Fill bottle with hot water, empty, then zap with heat gun. If there is sticky residue left behind, use Goo Gone.
To get the expiration date stamp off: Use finger-nail polish remover.

Ribbon: Riding Hood Red taffeta
Paper: Riding Hood Red DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Black Stazon
Punch: Scallop Border Punch (SU)
Other: Dimensionals, Sticky Strip (to get the label to adhere to the bottle), and Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards (I got those at Archivers or Michaels)

Big Shot Envelope Die Box

Sorry I haven't posted for SO LONG! We were in Russia in December. We are in the process of adopting two children. It has been a long journey, but we are so excited. We are waiting to hear from our agency so we can return to Russia and bring them home.
Here is a project I finished tonight.
One photo is taken with a flash, and the other w/o a flash.
I put chocolate in the box, and plan to give this one to my friend, Lark. We are going to her house tomorrow.

Materials Used:
Big Shot Envelope Die (I don't own this! I wish I did! I cut it out at Jeri's house - thank you Jeri!)
Paper: Blush Blossom, and I think the other is either Chocolate Chip or Close to Cocoa from last year (DSP)
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Stamp Set: Country Living Set - the one from the Holiday Mini
Other: Glue Pen, Glitter (I hope it shows in the photo), sticky strip, circle punch, and Martha Stewart Ribbon in Apricot
Notes: Cut out 4 pieces with the die. Put sticky strip on the 1st and 3rd, and assemble. The DSP is 2" by 14" (have to piece 2 together).
