Here are some of the Great Items you will find in the Etsy Store for this week Too Stinkin Sweet!!!!!

Here are the particular pieces I choose for my inspiration this week.

I got out SU! Card Stocks in Pacific Point Blue from last years in colors and the Metallic Gold Heavy Shimmery Card Stock SU! sells.  I also used some Shimmery Organza sheer ribbon on my project. 

To make the Medallian/Pendant I cut out a Circle Shape with my Colluzel and then I took a decorative Corner Punch and took the Corner sizer part off and punched all around the circle to create the pretty pendant.

I also took a square of the Metallic Gold Card Stock and embossed it with my CB folder Text and Textile and I die cut the flower with some of my SU! die cuts bottons and bows, and I added a Brilliant Blue Button to the center of the flower.

The Pacific Point Card Stock Square is embossed with my Big Shot and CB embossing foler Swiss Dots and then I took my Metallic Gold Stamp Pad and distressed the edges of the Card Stock with that.  I distressed the small gold square with my Pacific Point Stamp Pad.  The Flower is also embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Well I hope that you enjoy my Project today for this weeks Etsy Inspired Post and I hope you play along with us by going to this weeks shop Too Stinkin Sweet and picking out an inspiration piece, making your own project then linking it up to the Etsy Inspired Blog to win the Prize from Unity and from the Etsy Shop by next week at 12 Noon PST!!!!
