You're Invited to a Party Blog Hop this Weekend!

and it was just in time for my niece's birthday! What to get a sneak peak? Shhh, don't tell anyone! Actually, I'll just share the invite today, since everybody has seen that (who my sister invited).



 How cute!

Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Fox and Friends
Paper: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, Itty Bitty Punches, Melon Mambo Dotted Ribbon, My Digital Studio

I used My Digital Studio for the white layer and inside. I simply typed up what I wanted and then made them the colors I wanted. This ensured I got as close as possible with my printer to the real Stampin' Up! colors! How cool is that?

The design started out a different way. I used the paper goods my sister bought as inspiration. Of course, she bought those particular ones because they are Stampin' Up! color-alikes! AND, Clare loves monkeys, makes the most darling monkey noises, and well, is a monkey who loves Melon Mambo.

I used the glue and emboss technique on the background so that my flowers stayed in the background and the monkey as the focal point. So far, these have been received very well. Just wait til they all see everything else I've been up to! You can, too, on Friday-Sunday at my blog for the Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop! You'll also see other party themes done the Stampin' Up! way!

Happy Stamping!
