Starry Congrats!

Time to share a couple of cards a la

Blue, Blue Happy Birthday to You!

Birthday Boy: Borders, Toadilly Cool, Streamers, Cute Cuts; Button Market:
 Orange Stars, Blues; Designer Tape: Orange Stripe

I love the 3-D effect that was created by punching two stars into the brown paper
 and then applying it over the background paper with foam dots.
I then hand-stitched buttons to the center of each star and then a round button,
which made a nice bridge between the two!
 A few beads were sewn onto the cupcake to bring dimension to the sprinkles.

 Congrats, Couple 
Kiss Me: Flutter, Love Notes, Borders & Cute Cuts, Just Write Journaling Stickers,
 Alpha+Bits Stickers; High Five Alpha Stickers: Brown-Cream; 
Ciao Chip Elements: Trees; Crochet Flowers: Dahlia;
 Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Dot

By keeping the focal point at the bottom 2/3 of this card really made the other 1/3 look lonely!
When creating cards with cardstock, I like to spiff it up a bit by using an embossed pattern.
A little piece of doily peeking out also helps to dress-up the embossed cardstock.
 For the bottom, I cut various papers into small strips, adhered to a background pape
r and then machine stitched them together.

  1. The top one is my fave! The cut out stars, the pretty blues broke up by the striped yellow pp on the bottom - FAB!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
