Luau Party {Tropical Invitation}

My daughter’s 4th birthday is coming up, and we’re having a luau themed party. I used the Fresh Cut Notes to make the tropical flower by layering it with Island Oasis DSP and cutting it out. Then, I added a Chocolate Chip 1/4″ Epoxy Brad to the center.

The card base is Early Espresso, with a strip of Apricot Appeal that was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Melon Mambo Grosgrain Ribbon (polka dots on the back). The grass skirt is made from Kiwi Kiss textured card stock, cut with paper snips.

To finish it off, I stamped the “you’re invited” in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.

Cheers! It’s a Party! {Summer Party Invitations}

I’m working on some summer themed party invitations using the Cheers to You stamp set. I like them all for different reasons but the last one is my favorite. This stamp set looks especially good embossed and colored in with Copics. Crystal Effects gives an added 3D effect that also makes the drinks stand out.

Yummy Ice Creamy Card {Sweet Scoops}

I made this card as part of an ice cream gift basket–with cones, sprinkles, hot fudge, etc. The colors were inspired by the basket I used.

The card base is Gina K Luxury White Base Weight card stock, layered with polka dot DSP from Island Oasis. I stamped the cone from Sweet Scoops in Creamy Caramel ink on Whisper white. Then, I stamped the ice cream in Pretty in Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. I attached it to the base with a Stampin Dimensional.

The Whisper White is layered with Old Olive. I paper pierced the White and then adhered it to the Old Olive with Stampin Dimensionals. Behind the Old Olive, I added a strip of Rose Red card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Lastly, the sentiment is from an old SAB set called Yummy. I stamped it on Whisper White and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. Then, I took Rose Red card stock and punched it with the Scallop Oval Punch, layering the two pieces. That was adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
