It's time to PARTY!!!!

Are you ready for a party??

A couple weeks ago, I hosted a workshop for Keely and one of her attendees wanted to make invitations for her son's birthday party.

She chose Patterned Party as her set and Summer Smooches for her Designer Series Paper. I came up with a simple design for her (it's her very FIRST time stamping solo) and she was thrilled. I showed her this card too:

When she's ready to step it up, she'll have some more inspiration!

I stamped the banners in Island Indigo on Whisper White and then matted that onto one of the patterns in Summer Smooches before adding it to the Island Indigo card base.

The balloons were coloured using markers directly on the rubber. They were stamped on Whisper White and matted on Island Indigo. I then wrapped a short piece of Daffodil Delight stitched grosgrain around the image and adhered it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

From the strip of numbers in the stamp set, I used markers to colour JUST the number I wanted and stamped it onto Whisper White. It was punched out using the small oval and adhered over the ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals. I added Dazzling Details to the flame.

I finished the inside too, of course:

What do you think?
