AWH Blog Hop: Kid's Birthday Parties


Today I’m excited to bring you a blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today we focus on the kids in our lives, from birthday cards to party ideas.

Hopefully you've arrived from Rachel Palmieri's blog, but if you haven't you can just start hopping from here and keep hopping until you get back.

Sale-a-bration continues and this week we have three new additional items you can earn for free with a $90 order - ask me how!
I decided to make a lolly bag for my project for the Blog Hop. Apart from getting the invitation in the first place, I think the lolly bag is one of the big things on a kid's radar when they attend a birthday party!

I started with a Night Of Navy base and used my Gift Bag Punch Board to create the box. While it was still flat I Silver Embossed the city scape image from Everyday Hero onto the front a couple of centimeters from the bottom of the bag. I also Silver Embossed the same image a few times on a separate piece of Night Of Navy cardstock. I then Clear Embossed the 'ray' image onto the background. It turned out a little darker than I'd like, but I still think the effect works.

The superhero was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock, coloured with my new Watercolour Pencils and then blended with my Clear Wink Of Stella pen. I think the WOS is my favourite way to blend the pencils. I stuck with shades of Black and Grey on the superhero, mostly because the new Lego Batman movie is coming our soon, and this fits right in!

You can also see in the photo that I have trimmed the other city scape pieces and layered them across the bottom of the box. The top layer is popped up on Dimensionals to give more depth.

What do you think? Would a young party goer love to get a box like this to take home? I think so!

You are about to continue the Blog Hop by jumping over to Ros Davidson's blog. She's fabulously creative, so you're bound to find oodles of inspiration there.
