It's A Party

I can't believe it has been ten days since my last post.  

Well, I actually do believe it.  The past couple of weeks have been really busy with work.  But the last big event took place this Friday, and I tell you... I was sooo excited to play in my planet.

I was very ready to do my pending craft projects, but I started with cataloging my new stamps that I have bought from weeks or months ago (click here to see how I catalog and store my unmounted and clear stamps).  There are still a good number left, but it sure feels great to finally store a bunch of them the "right" away.  I will do my best to buy any new stamps (even though there's a lot I really want right now), until all my stamps are catalogued and stored. 

Then last night, I started making invitations for my cousin's 50th birthday and 20th anniversary party.  While making these cards, I realized that this year is the most I ever made - from baptism, to wedding and now to birthday/anniversary invitations.  I would consider it an accomplishment, craft wise.  

Anyway, as my cousin and I were talking about the color scheme of the party, it was decided that gold will be used for the 50th, and emerald green, china and platinum for the 20th.

This is what I came up with:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp - Georgia Pacific, Recollections
image/sentiment - Inkadinkado
ink - Stampin' Up, Tsukineko
tools - Quickutz embossing folder, Fiskars corner punch, Stampin' Up punches, Spellbinders, EK Success edge punch
adhesive - Scotch, mounting tape

To achieve this look, I punched a strip of white cardstock with the EK Success edge punch, then stamped the sentiment above it.  After that, I punched with the Stampin' Up Label Punch, then inked the edges with Tsukineko Brilliance Ink in Platinum Planet.

The design is easy and simple that I was able to make 42 in a few hours.

Now it's the season for graduation parties.  Another good reason to play some more in my planet.  'Til next blog!
