You're Invited...

to a Woodland Party!  And to the Release Review for Clear and Simple Stamps!  With this bimonthly release, we had SO many fun new sets!  We are having a blog hop today to continue sharing all that is available for the January/February Release!  There is a party going on today, so I hope you will stay around and hop with us!

  I have created a set of invites and some matching cupcake toppers using a couple of the new Critter sets.  Here is my party project...


I have some pictures to share to show you just how easy these invites are to make!  You need a few supplies first:

Kraft Cardstock

If you want to make the cupcakes and Critter decorations, you need these supplies:


For the invitations I took 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pieces of kraft cardstock.  I stamped You're Invited on the top of each card first, making these in assembly line style.  Next, I laid out DATE, TIME, PLACE, and RSVP so I could see right where they needed to go...


I took a clear block and put it right down on top of the stamps, so each time they would stamp the same...



Here is a picture of my assembly line.  I put each stamp on a different block, laid everything out to keep it going.  


A quick tip for making the lines, I used a line stamp from Tweet Notes I.  I added a sticky note to the side of the cardstock to mask off and make a clean edge.  This made the stamping super easy and fast.  Much easier than drawing lines with a ruler!


Here is a picture of my 6 invites after I stamped the little critter up in the corner.  I colored them in with Prismas and OMS.  (And I just realized I didn't get a picture of that!)


Here are those cupcake toppers.  My disclaimer here....by no means am I a Copic artist.  I have come to the realization that I don't have to make everything look perfectly blended.  A good solid color on the image never hurts!  :)  Although I did try tome on the fox and the owl...that is why they are in the back!  hehe!
(and yes I did make my own cupcakes and frosting!  YUM!)


Here is another picture of the completed invite...


And the set...



I hope you like my little party!  Now I am pretty sure the other DT girls are going to have some fabulous creations today!  I can't wait to see them! 


 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
