Sunday is an event that should be pretty fun to attend (not to mention fantastic swag bags are included). The Wedding Party is sponsored by: Sprinkles, Blush Couture, Waxpaper (who I LOVE!), SoulBox (these two are wonderful!), NYLO and boothbooth not to mention many others.
I am a bit late in the notice (I have known about it for months and maybe next year will get invited) but better late than never!
Maybe I will see you there!
My little sister moved into her first apartment last weekend and as her housewarming gift I designed fill-in invitations for her parties. She really likes to cook so I thought these would be appropriate for sharing the love.
The first ones were developed using a stamp from PaperNosh on Etsy (I was the first to buy this stamp and now they are selling like hotcakes, get one while they are still in stock!) and then embossed with silver embossing powder from Paper Source. The Calligraphy was done in the Copperplate script with black ink and the flourish was done in silver calligraphy ink. All mounted on a brown card stock.
Next, I did a series of casual invitations that say “Appetizers”, “Cook Out” and “Desserts”. These were done on white card stock (left overs from another project) with black calligraphy in in the citadel script. Casual and fun.
Finally, a tribute to the fact that she is at Texas Tech… I made some football game watching party invitations, in the Red, Black and White. The Gothic script in black ink is lettered on more left over white card stock, mounted on red paper. The dots are with black ink and red gauche. The “join us” is elevated on black card stock and a white gel pen was used for the lettering.
I had fun making these and I think they were very well received on delivery.
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I decided to host a brunch for my mom and my mother-in-law. Here are some pictures of the invitation and the Menu. I was hungry when writing out the menu, it sounds so delicious I want to do a “practice run” this weekend 🙂
The set is done with purple watercolor in my Citadel Script with a splash of teal gauche on mat board backed by pretty paper from Michaels.
Okay… so I am not talking about the green in your wallet but the green that graces your hands, the bridesmaids hands and all of the tables at your reception. Your flowers! What happens after all of the partying is finished and the bride and groom are on the way to wedded bliss? The flowers get thrown in the trash. Instead try to find a nursing home or seniors home that would like to bring in some flowers for their clients or you could share floral decor with another wedding at the same place on the same day, maybe for a baptism the next day or a birthday party of a neighbor. Think of something to put those fresh cut beauties to good use!
