CSS Release Review...Party Hop


Today is a party hop for Clear and Simple Stamps!

Each of us used the Party Elements: Baby stamp set to create a fun party ensemble.  Mine is for a birthday party, made with Joey (my toddler cousin) in mind.



I made the party set to stretch the versatility of the stamps and dies- they don't have to be used strictly for baby projects!  I was trying to think of what Joey would like to see on a party invite.  Bright colors are always great for kids, and the new blue CSS felt was the perfect color to go with the designer paper I used.  And I KNOW Joey would love touching the soft and fuzzy felt!

Since "B-Day Party" is not a sentiment in the new release, I chose to use alphabet stamps.  I used the same stamps to label the treat bag, and to put the name on the recipient's invite (Emma is Joey's big sister...I can't wait for her to see that I "invited" her to the party!).  The slider part of the invite was really easy to make- I layered 2 4.25"x5.5" pieces of cardstock and adhered on 3 sides, making sure to cut a circular notch to help you pull out the invitation.





I knew I wanted the card to say "for Joey"- and I just LOVE the font in "Party Elements: Baby" used for the date/time/place/rsvp stamp.  To get "for" in the font I wanted, I selectively stamped the "or" from the word "honor" and the "f" from the word "of."  Whenever I get a new stamp set, I always think of other ways to use it!


I think my favorite part of the party set is the treat bag- cookies, popcorn, (maybe peanuts for the elephant?) would all be fun little snacks for guests to take home.  I had so much fun creating with this set....I only wish that I lived in the same state as my cousin so I could actually throw him the party!

Now it's time to hop along to see what everyone else made!

Such a fun ensemble! I especially love all the blocks of color. I love your tip for getting more mileage out of your stamps, that's advice we can all use.
