And here are a few more of my newest dies...BIG GRIN

And I'm using several stamps from Quietfire Design - "Let Them Eat Cupcakes"  set "Happy Birthday", "Queen of Everything" set, "Francais" set "Paris" & "Words of Love" set "hearts".

I created my easel shape from white cardstock. Adhered the butterfly scrapbook paper (it gave me the French country feeling...) to the floor and both front pieces.

Die cut my tag (Tim's Sizzix "Tag" die) from some previously decorated cardstock done in a faux wood board technique using my Scor-It board to create the patterns, then hitting it with Distress browns, sanding etc...

Assembled all the next elements and played with positioning then adhered to tag:

Embossed the Queen of Hearts playing card (Sizzix Tim's "Poker Face" set) from white cardstock, then sponged lightly with distress "Worn Lipstick". Added the pink rhinestone heart.

Die cut the cupcake (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Cupcake with Cherry" outline) from black cardstock. Adhered a piece of Sookwang tape to my outline in the liner section only and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Gold". Cut the solid section using my electronic cutter and adhered my outline to it. Used Dreamweaver "Pearlescent" paste to add some icing texture . Added a red glossy circle sticker for the cherry.

Cut out an Eiffel Tower shape with my electronic cutter from black cardstock. Applied Perfect Medium all over and embossed with Tim's Distress "Walnut Stain" embossing Powder.

Stamped the "Let them Eat..." sentiment on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx, clear embossed, and die cut with part of the set from Marianne Creatables "LR0236". Sponged Distress "Faded Jeans" over most of it. Stamped the "Paris" with the black and hand cut, rounding the corners. Stamped the "Queen of" with the black and die cut with Spellbinders "Fancy Tags", cutting the left side, moving the die and cutting the right side to get a shorter tag. Threaded a blue ribbon thru the holes and around the tag. After everything was assembled decided I wanted the word "hearts" there as well. So stamped that with the black and used a Micron pen to add the "S".



Tied some twine around my three buttons and adhered the to card floor as my stopper.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" with the black and clear embossed.

Tied a bunch of fibers through the tag hole.
