Mixed Bunch Shower Invitations

In June, several family members hosted a bridal shower for a special couple in our family, Jenn and Tim. I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set to make the invitations for the gathering.   As part of the hostess gift I made matching thank you notes, which were already addressed to the gift givers to save time for the newlyweds.  This is a great suggestion from my daughter-in-law that we have used for multiple occasions.

Stamp Sets:  Mixed Bunch-Wood Mount (125535), Clear Mount (125537); Perfectly Penned- Wood Mount (122890), Clear Mount (122892); Sincere Salutations (Retired).

Paper:  Pool Party(122924), Poppy Parade (Retired), Whisper White (100730).

Ink:  Pool Party (126982), Poppy Parade (Retired), Basic Black (126980).

Delicate Doilies

Don't have DSP in the colors your need for a special project.  Head straight for the Delicate Doilies stamp set.  I love the Wisteria Wonder/Pool Party/Lucky Limeade color combination from the 2011-2013 In Colors  but did not have DSP in those colors.  Problem solved by stamping two sheets of Whisper White cardstock and cutting it into 4 pieces (4" by 5 1/4").

What do you think of the results?

A CAS'ed Card

I follow several blogs daily.  Confessions of a Stamping Addict is one of my favorites.  Recently, this card was posted by Lorri.  The card uses the new "Patio Party" Designer Series Paper  and  "Make a Cake" stamp set that were free when I signed up as a demonstrator in June.  Polka dots and pennants are a great combination.
