Raspberry Tart....Yum!

Raspberry Tart designer papers....gorgeous! The Big Shot Top Note die was used in all items, too. Stamp sets: A Little Somethin'; Dreams du Jour; (both from the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog) and French Script background stamp (retired).
I also used the scalloped square Stampin' Up! punch. Love it!
The butterflies are embossed on vellum card stock and colored in with a Pretty In Pink Marker.
These candy bag toppers are such a quick and easy little thing to make! Just fill a small cellophane bag with some candy (who doesn't like Hershey Kisses?!) and put on a tittle topper and it's done!

Stampin' Up! has a brand new catalog coming out later this month, and I think some of the new Spring/Summer designer papers in it are among the prettiest yet! I just love the new Raspberry Tart papers and the colors in them: Real Red, Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Pretty In Pink and Kiwi Kiss.
So I played around with them last night, and came up with two cards and two little candy bag toppers. I figure the candy toppers could be used for Valentine's Day, but would be a nice "little something" for any time of year.
The Big Shot Top Note die is still one of my favorite accessories these days, and I used it in each of these. I am also a huge fan of Stampin' Up!'s wider grosgrain ribbons. Not only are they super pretty, but they are such a nice quality and easy to work with. I hope you can see the little butterflies; they were so fun to make! I stamped on vellum card stock in craft ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I colored in with a Pretty In Pink marker. I cut them out and folded the wings a bit. Attached with a bit of a glue dot. They look so pretty in real life. Just a real nice added touch.
So these are my first Raspberry Tart creations. What do you think?
