"Perfectly Preserved" little gifts

I loved this stamp set (Perfectly Preserved) as soon as I saw all the cute things you could do with it! I have had it for a few months now, but not had a chance to play with it until now (funny how moving interstate does that). I love how you can cut out the jars/fruit with the coordinating die-making windows in cute little boxes, and cute little cut-outs in cards, etc. Here are just a few cards I made-but I'm itching to get to some other ideas I have seen with this gorgeous set.

I CASED this very simple, but stylish card from Jen Nelson. I really love the earthy colours.

These cute little milk carton boxes with a die cut window I also CASED from Christine Miller
with one or two tiny changes.

 After being inspired by the above sample, I came up with my own card below using the "Perfectly Preserved" stamp set and coordinating dies.

Monsters Inc. Party for Owen

Well Mr O's long-anticipated birthday finally arrived. In keeping with the Monster's Inc. theme, my clever sister made a gorgeous cake complete with Sulley, Mike, and Boo. I also felt the occasion a good time to design a Monster's Inc punch art set for a waterfall card. I had fun trying to use punches to capture the look/character of the Monster.

Since Owen is learning to read, I also used a bit of stamping here and there to jazz up these birthday readers
