Right at Home: Let's Party!



Yum...
Nicole, Right at Home's owner, graciously asked me to be on the Right at Home design team for May and June and I was very happy to say yes. Today, Right at Home is releasing the first of its Stamped and Sealed Craft Boxes. May's box is called Let's Party, and it's perfect for making birthday cards, tags, etc. Let's Party includes:
  • Simple Stories "Let's Party" 6x6 paper pad
  • Right at Home Stamps "Sweet Birthday" 4 in x 6 in stamp set (exclusive to box)
  • One package of "Birthday Cake" sequin mix (exclusive to box)
  • Clear Wink of Stella 

Very cute stuff!  My first project using Let's Party is this birthday tag, perfect to add to a little box of chocolates!



I was inspired by these ombre balloons that Julie Ebersole watercolored.  I quickly watercolored the balloons on Neenah Solar White by using a waterbrush to pick up some ink from Tombow markers that I had scribbled on a craft sheet. You aren't going to be able to blend ink or paint when working with watercolors on Neenah paper, but you can get a quick wash, which is what I wanted.  Added a bit of one of the patterned papers on the inside of the tag.

My second project is a colorful birthday card and coordinating envelope.


If you read this blog, you know I love a good envelope liner and the paper that comes with this Box is perfect for lining envelopes. I also used some of the paper for the background for the card. If you look closely, you'll see that the paper has the music and some of the words to Happy Birthday.


Hmm... Now I want cake.  On an orange fancy plate. And chocolates.

Hope you've enjoyed my projects with Let's Party.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Looking for a party!
