I was so excited when my cousin asked me to make some army birthday party invitations for her son. Now I can’t take all of the credit because my little cousin who is turning 8 helped me design them =) I used My Digital Studio to lay everything out and found some camo and army guy clip art online. The font that his name is in is called “Army Rust” and it is from wwww.dafont.com.
If you have any questions, let me know! Thanks!
My cousin has been working away again! I just had to share these baby shower invitation she made. She mounted the Very Vanilla layer on a layer of Night of Navy leaving just a thin border. She created a focal image by aligning three circles in the colors Cameo Coral (retired), Cameo Coral and Crumb Cake. She finished the card by stitching through the middle of the circles.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you are having a good week! My cousin asked me to make some birthday party invitations and of course I agreed. When she said it was going to be a NERF party, I had to do a bit of research as to what the invitation should look like. I found some great examples on Pinterest. So this is what I came up with.
I found the clip art online with a google search and downloaded a font called Crillee from http://www.fontzone.net. I think it passed my little cousin’s approval because he said it was “cool” =). If you have any questions, let me know! Thank you for stopping by!
UPDATE! Since I have been getting a lot of the requests for the clip art, I have decided to include them in the post for you to download since sometimes I forget to respond to an email. Please only use these for personal use and not commercial use. Also, if you would not mind, please leave a comment below if you decide to use any of the materials I have shared below. Thanks! Enjoy!
I know it has been over a week since I have last posted, but things are a bit crazy right now =) My cousins and I got together tonight and created a chevron themed baby shower invitation. We stamped the main panel with the Chevron background stamp in Lucky Limeaid ink and then mounted it on a layer of navy.
The invites were inspired by her bedding below =)
I have a super cute project to show you today. So my cousin is quite the stamper/crafter and she came up with this adorable owl invitation for a baby shower. She always has the most creative ideas. Of course, Pinterest always lends a bit of inspiration. I was lucky enough to help out with the assembly processes so I just had to show you. The owl’s body is Crumb Cake, a great neutral that allows all the other colors to pop. The eyes are Whisper White and Early Espresso and super easy to make since they were punched with circle punches. The nose is made from the Small Heart Punch and is from Pumpkin Pie cardstock. To make the wings, my cousin hand drew a template and then used that to trace and cut out all the wings. The inner part of the wing is made from Old Olive cardstock that was embossed with the Square Lattice folder. The wings are also attached with brads so that the wings can open and reveal the wording. Finally, and Island Indigo circle frames all the details for the big event! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope that this awesome invitation inspires you to make something handmade for your next big event!
I have a bridal shower I wanted to show you today. My cousin and I made these elegant bridal shower invitations for my other cousin. I can’t take all the credit though, I only helped design and cut a bit of cardstock. My cousin did all the work..check out her blog HERE! She is super talented in stampin’ and especially sewing! Anyway, back to the invitation. We started out with a base of Baja Breeze (now retired..sad face) and used a retired embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! on it. To make the embossing pop a bit more, we sponged some Baja Breeze ink over it. The white was cut out using the Labels Framelits and a simple satin gray ribbon was added for an elegant touch. Thanks for stopping by!
I have a special invitation to share with you today. My mom is retiring from the postal service after 26 years, so we are going to have a little party for her. My brother and I created these invitations using Microsoft Publisher. We wanted to give my mom a hard time so we added the stamp on the left “Damanaged in Handling in the Postal Service” and we played that up by bending a couple corners and distressing the postcard a lot. We used scissors to rough up the edges and used Soft Suede ink to darken the edges. The different images such as the “Damaged” stamp, the bard code at the bottom and the postmark are all from a font called Dead Letter Office that I downloaded at http://www.dafont.com. I also downloaded the typewriter looking font there too. Thanks for stopping by!
So I have been keeping busy working on my Christmas cards, but I did want to share some baby shower invitations I made for my cousin’s shower. I kept the colors girly and trendy with Melon Mambo and Early Espresso. I just love the little whale from the set Fox & Friends. whenever I make cards or invitations, I love making the envelope coordinate with the invitation. Adding the whale made the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for looking!
I recently had the opportunity to create some wedding invitations for a friend. The base of my card is Stampin’ Up!’s Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I used some Damask digital scrapbook paper and a black satin ribbon.
I recently created these cute tractor birthday invitations for my friend. They were having a John Deere birthday and wanted some invitations to match. I downloaded the tractor image from Stampin’ Up!’s My Digital Studio files from the set Barnyard Buddies. I really want to buy the My Digital Studio software, but I have not yet, so instead I just download the images and use them in other programs such as Microsoft Publisher. I found that it is a great way to use Stampin’ Up! images since I have not purchased MDS yet. For the cardstock I used Garden Green and Summer Sun (retired). Thanks for looking!
