Build a Bear boy invites.

Today I worked on stuff for the upcoming craft fair. I made a set of 8 boy party invites using the Build a Bear stamp set from the mini.

I used some retired DSP and Tangerine Tango cardstock! No more hoarding!! LOL

The balloon was stamped then I used 1 1/4" and 1" punches to make a balloon pop with dimensionals!!

I am super happy with this set and can't wait to get the girl set done!

I plan to make a set of girl invites with the girl paper!!

Thanks and enjoy!!

Hello, Just playing around with ideas for my SIL's upcoming shower. I wanted to match the invites so went with the colors and stars!

Here are the invites again...

ISN"T THIS COOL!! It is a sour cream container...I will put some kisses or candy inside!

I know you all are asking how to do it...Those in Hostess Club will find out in a few weeks (hint hint)

I am on the hunt for Groovy Guava DSP so I can make some in each color!! IF YOU HAVE SOME I CAN BUY...EMAIL ME!!

Thanks all!

Thank you cards...

I needed to make a few thank you cards so went to the galleries at SCS for inspiration and came up with these. I wasn't sure about putting the butterfly on all of them (i made 12-2 to send out and the rest to box up for the craft fair)

My friends seemed to think both looked good so I will probably end up adding the butterflies as I cut them!!

Cottage Wall DSP
Razzleberry, Old Olive, Whisper White and Orchid Opulance cardstock
Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon (retired)

Thank you for looking!!
