Creation Station: Harvest Party!!!

Hello!  Are you ready for a Harvest Party?  This week, our talented group of Stampin' Up! Demos are featuring all things related to Harvest Parties.....we'll also spotlight the For All Things stamp set and our new Petite Cafe Gift Bags.

So, let's get the party started!

First - you need an invitation:

I did something a little different for this, and created a belly band for my invite.  The belly band was stamped with You're Invited and then adorned with some scraps of Typeset Designer Series Paper, a scrap of burlap ribbon (just the edge that I had cut off for another project), some feathers and a gold button.

I stamped the background of the Crumb Cake card base with the leaves and acorns from For All Things. 

Now, when you get to my party, you'll enjoy a buffet.  I'll label the things we've got with cute little cards like this:

When you take your seat, you'll have a napkin that's got a napkin holder sticking with our theme.

I just wrapped some of our burlap ribbon around my napkin, tied it off with some Old Olive Thick Bakers Twine and added a tag that was stamped with images from For All Things.  You could easily change your tags out - maybe to include your guests' name.

 At my party, the guests are going home with a treat....presented in our Petite Cafe Gift Bags.  
I stamped the sentiment from Num-Num and kept this pretty simple.

Added some burlap, feathers and leaves, called it good!  

I hope I've left you with some inspiration today.  Now it's time to travel onto the very talented Ilina Crouse's blog  - just click the Next button below.  Or click the Back button to see what Justin Krieger has dreamt up for us!  Either way, it's inspiration galore!

Wonderous Wreath - a wreath for all seasons!

A lot of times when I'm purchasing new decor for my house, I often think that I'd like something more if I could just switch one thing out for the next season.   You know, something that's multi-purposed!  That way I wouldn't have to find a place to store it. I could look at my new treasure longer....etc, etc.

This is exactly why I love this Wonderous Wreath stamp set from Stampin' Up!  It's multi-faceted!  Just change out your colors and it can be for any season.  Add some flowers for spring, stamp it in patriotic colors for Independence Day....this wreath is awesome!

Another great thing - swap out your sentiment - it can be for birthday, anniversary.  Heck, stamp it in baby blues for a new baby (or pinks!).  

Today I went the fall route.  I used a Crumb Cake base, and topped it with a Mossy Meadow panel that had been embossed in woodgrain.  Then added just a small strip of Hello Honey.  The wreath itself was stamped first with Hello Honey, then with Tangelo Twist, and lastly the berries are Cherry Cobbler.  I added a little bow to finish it off, and my sentiment.  

What do you think?  What colors would you use for something different?  I'd love to hear!  Leave me a comment....just look for the comment link under this post.

Creation Station - Alphabets

Good morning friends!  Time for another Creation Station blog hop.  This time we are focusing on alphabets and tags.  I'm gonna stick with all things Alpha and the great things you can do with them.

Here's an idea that's easily adapted to anything you want it to say.   Just use the letters, scramble them up and stamp away!  This also makes a great mailable card.

Next up, a little Christmas card....I simply used the negative image of the Little Letters dies and married it with the Holidays sentiment.  Can you say easy peasy?

Lastly, I again used the negative images paired with the Hexagon punch for a fun birthday card.

All of these cards are very clean and simple and good mailable cards too.  Hope you like them. along your way to the other blogs for more inspiration.
