Candy Land Birthday Party

Candy Land was the theme for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. She chose it based on both the board game and her extreme love of candy!

First up, the invitation: I used the stamp set Sweets for the Sweet to make the lollipop and candies. The base is 5″x7″ chocolate chip card stock that I gave some texture to using the Big Shot and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.

The candies were stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Lucky Limeade. I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and Versamark to make some of them sparkle. I wanted them a bit smaller than the lollipop so I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to cut them down a bit.

As for the lollipop, I stamped it with Daffodil Delight ink and used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on it. A little 1/8″ Taffeta Pretty in Pink Ribbon is knotted and attached with a mini glue dot.

The information was printed on Whisper White card stock. The Candy Land type font is called “Candy Cane” and I downloaded it for free online. Behind the printed information is Pool Party card stock that was die cut using the Big Shot and Scallop Square Bigz Die. It’s attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

I didn’t have much time to take pictures during the party, but I did manage to take a picture of the candy buffet. I took it with my phone so the picture is not the best quality, but you can see what I did. The little chalk board sign was painted and decorated using various stickers and little lollipop Christmas ornaments.

The lollipop topiary was made using a topiary form (from the floral section of the craft store) and Dum Dum lollipops. Almost 400 lollipops were used to cover the topiary!

Various vases, jars, and containers I had around the house or borrowed from my sister held all the candy. The gingerbread cupcake box was found at Hobby Lobby. I used it for a raffle–the prize being a brand new Candy Land board game. Inside the box, I put slips of paper with the childrens’ names and my daughter pulled the winner.

We still have a lot of candy left over! I’m going to leave the buffet up for a few more days because it makes me smile when I look at it. I suppose a candy buffet in my living room would come in pretty handy with company stopping by, and my daughter certainly won’t complain!

{Blessed} Baptism Card CASED from Stampin Success May 2010

I copied this card from the May issue of Stampin Success, by Jolene Slack, on page 23. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post the original picture, but it was featured in the new Color Renovation section. Jolene’s sample used new Marina Mist, here, I substituted Baja Breeze, a returning In Color.

The card base is made from a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Baja Breeze, folded in half. Next, I took a 5″ square of Shades of Spring DSP in the Certainly Celery pattern and layered it on the card base.

I used the Scallop Square Bigz Die and the Big Shot to cut a scallop square from Parisian Breeze DSP (retired). I sponged Baja Breeze ink along the edges using a Sponge Dauber, then adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Using more paper from Shades of Spring DSP, I layered a 3 1/4″ square of Certainly Celery on a 3″ square of DSP, attaching it to the base with SNAIL adhesive.

The square window was made by embossing Certainly Celery card stock with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Big Shot. Then, I cut the embossed piece down to 2″ square. I punched a window in the center with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and sponged the frame with Certainly Celery ink. I stamped “Blessed” from So Very (a retired SAB set) in Baja Breeze on Whisper White, layering it behind the window. I also stamped an image from Tiny Tags in Certainly Celery ink, stamped off, randomly over the whisper white.

At the top, I added a loop of Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals and a half back sticky pearl. Finally, I adhered the window piece to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
