Try It Out Tuesday #21 -- A Summer Tea Party



Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) Today is Tuesday so that means it's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's Store Blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to create a summer invitation using any of the stamps Susana sells. I decided to create an invitation to a summer tea party. I used this adorable image, designed by Victoria Case exclusively for Susana's Store. This particular image is called Tea for Two. Isn't it just adorable? :) It was so much fun to color too. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock and colored it with copics. It's hard to see in the picture, but I added Shimmerz to the butterfly's wings and I also added Pearls to her dress and to her bracelet, as well as around the image.

Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Sage Shadow. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by my design paper. I added a pink ribbon and then used my Nesties Label 4 to cut out the "You're Invited" tag (the sentiment is computer generated). I then adhered my image to my SU cardstock and to the card base using dimensionals. Finally, I used my SU Word Window punch to cut out the "Tea for Two" sentiment (also computer generated) and added pearls. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Make sure to stop by Susana's Store Blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing creations. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day :)

Big Hugs, Christine :)
