La Belle Vie...Ooh La La

I finally made time to sit down and get creative with the new products!  Here are a few items I made using this new kit: La Belle Vie and Stamp Set: Jardin (Just click on the names to order.)
 A one page layout that I can't decide what photos to put on...perhaps some wedding or tea party pics?
the smudges around the black paper are Smoky Plum Pigment Ink.  It is impossible to tell in the photo but I added some shine with the metallic silver marker around the frame after stamping in Staz On.  There are also a couple of dots of Pink Glitter Gel for shimmer on the "So Adorable" and "Cherished" Tags

A sweet little gift tag:

For this cutie I just used left over paper (the exclusive La Belle Vie Purple and a sheet of extra pattern paper)  some white rosette ribbon and the pink alcohol marker set...when I get the blending pen I will rework this cupcake a bit!  I colored the bling (from the Boutique Assortment) with the alcohol marker to make it pink and it worked like a charm. :)  You can color the sparkles with these new markers as well.  I wonder how it will look on silver or white brads? Hmmmm.  Oh, I also used a strip of the burlap to make the tag hanger.  Man that stuff is versatile.

A long card: 3 1/2 by 8
On this one I decided an everyday, any reason card would be good.  Pattern paper base with the lightest side inside the card (or you can add a piece of plain cardstock to the inside for a good writing surface).  A strip of black C/S, Burlap ribbon (yep again) and shimmer tape (my new favorite item in the latest idea book).  I added a couple dots of pink glitter gel and stamped some La belle Vie Pink paper with Cotton Candy Ink.  Not sure I would use the shimmer tape again with this one but I do love me some shimmer! :)

A standard-size card: 4 1/4 by 5 1/2
I like the look of the burlap and torn paper edges with this paper pack.  (side note I did NOT think I would like the burlap but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!)  The phrases are from the "zip strip" at the top edge of the paper sheets.
