Such a fun set–you just can’t go wrong with cupcakes and ice cream, right?! YUMMO!!!

My project features “faux” watercoloring–one of my favorite cheat methods of getting that watercolor look on a solid image!

I used the border sprinkles image to create a striped background and then layered some vellum over top to diffuse the pattern a bit.  The cone and ice cream were inked up with Art Graphic Twin Markers, spritzed with water, and then stamped onto watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I stamped the sentiment over the ice cream with black ink and then die cut everything out.

A little messy next of gold thread is layered behind the ice cream cone and then I embellished it with the little heart cut from foil card stock.

EEP!  So cute!

Poppin-Bottles-001A-je

This is a larger sized bottle die–I love the presence it has–makes for some really fun options!  Here I just die cut it from the fun Happy Hooray Paper pad that’s part of the Party Bundle.

I hand-lettered the “Cheers” die and love using it to accent the the bottle!

Methinks this would make fun New Year’s Party invite, too!  I posted a few weeks ago with a project featuring this die set, check it out HERE.

YAY! Die

Cake-Wasted-001A-je

I love that this die cuts out a thick outline image–you can have a lotta fun with this!  Here I just made a simple watercolored background, die cut the cake from smooth bristol and then glued it over the same cut from Craft-a-Board to make my own chipboard type embellishment.  Some of the sentiments from Cue the Confetti are designed specifically to fit in the space between the banner and the top of the cake.

I love cake.

For this one, I cut the window out of a panel, made a shaker from it and mounted it over the card front where I’d stamped “Cue the Confetti”; the die cut was then mounted a little askew–I love this particular visual effect!

 

Confetti-Balloon-001A-je

The confetti images and the balloon string on this one lead to the inside of the card where I made a pleat inside the gutter crease so I could pop up the YAY! on clear plastic strips–just a fun variation for doing a pop up card!

While it’s not a “kit”, the Party Bundle created for this release is super fun and made it easy for me to pull together lots of card designs!  Hope you’ll pop back by on Saturday–more samples are comin’! :)
