Today is a party with You're Invited and the Peek-a-Boo Chevrons Die-namics. All the new products will be available in the MFT Boutique on August 6th at 10pm EDT. Hop over to the MFT Blog for all the details.
I created a clean and simple birthday party invitation on a base of Kraft card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from You're Invited with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink (it covers BEAUTIFULLY!) directly onto the card base then I set it aside to dry for a few hours. I could have sped up the drying process with my heat tool but I didn't want to warp the card stock. Once the white ink was dry I used a technique I saw Jennifer McGuire do in this post, stamping coloured ink over white. I stamped the word Party a second time with Grape Jelly Premium Dye Ink slightly offset on the white ink. I think it's so cool how you end up with three shades...white, dark purple, and medium purple.
Then I created the rainbow of chevrons by using the Peek-a-Boo Chevrons Die-namics to cut out pieces of Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple, Blu Raspberry, and Grape Jelly card stocks. I'd love to say it was good design that I ended up with two chevrons of each colour, but it was totally good luck. ;-)
You'll find more information on the MFT Blog, along with a list of today's participating designers.
Here are the supplies I used:
