Hope everyone is having an awesome week!! Did you get your holiday shopping done yet? I am still buying presents for people, i am hoping to be done by Monday. The only presents i have are for my son, I have no idea what to get hubster. He said he doesn't know what he wants. So I need some ideas, what is everyone getting their husbands?
Alright now back to my project, i get side tracked so easily. LOL
So we had to create an invitation or tag for the SweetSassyDiva design team, but i want to do something original. So, i looked through my stash and saw this die by Tim Holtz, and thought how neat would it be to get in invitation like this to a holiday party. They can hang it up and it would be such a cute little decoration as well as a reminder for the party. Of course i had to use my new Stampin Up products. I am just in love with all of their products, especially the Shimmer paint in Champagne.

So the first thing i did was cut out the chip board, along with my Designer Series Paper using the Big Shot and glued them on with the Tombow Multi glue. I took my sponges and inked the edges with the chocolate chip ink pad and then again with the espresso ink pad. I then took my whisper white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso. I again took a sponge and distressed the Whisper White cardstock with Crumb Cake Classic ink pad. Then I took an image from the Artistec Etchings Stamp set and used Crumb Cake ink pad to stamp it onto my sentiment, making an awesome background. I did the same thing with the crown, stamped it on whisper white cardstock with Early Espresso ink and then cut it out and put Gold Lame Smooch to accent some areas. For the bird i used the Punch Potpourri stamp set with Early Espresso Ink, except for this one I stamped it on designer series paper to get that awesome text background and sponged some crumb cake over that. I then put shimmer paint across my bird using a piece of sponge as well as my crown. Glued it all down and you are done!! Super easy!! On the back side of it you can put the information regarding the party.
Hope you like it!! If you are interested in purchasing any of the Stampin Up products i used please visit: http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/milamemories/
