For All Things Party Edition

September 21, 2014 3 Comments

Creation Station Blog Hop Banner

Welcome to this edition of the Creation Station creative tour.  This week, we’re exploring For All Things for our harvest parties.  This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite sets in the Holiday Catalog.  By the time you’re through with the blog hope you’ll have ideas for everything from invitations to decor and favors using this one set.

If you’re hosting a party, you’ll need an invitation.

I decided to create mine using My Digital Studio.  The For All Things stampbrush set and Color Me Autumn were part of this month’s new digital downloads.

I started with a template from Sophisticated Spooks and using the magic that is My Digital Studio, I added a piece of Color Me Autumn designer paper.  Next, I recolored the center banner and the words “party”, “when”, “where” and “rsvp”.  Then, I added “Hello Fall”, leaves, acorns, and small banners from For All Things stampbrush set.  The only thing it still needs are the details and this invitation is ready to send.

Next, I decided a little fall themed decor was in order.

For my decor piece, I used Simply Pressed Clay.  Rolling it out flat and fairly thin, I stamped it with the leaf from For All Things.  Since I wanted the leaves to have some shape, I let it air dry like this:

I tucked several ink refill bottles and a couple sponge daubers under the stamped Simply Pressed Clay to curl my leaves.  Then left it to air dry.  Once dry, I cut out all of the leaves and acorns that I had stamped.

I had this lovely handcrafted pumpkin brulee candle that was just dying to be the centerpiece.  While is smells nice, it needed a little more.  The Simply Pressed Clay leaves were perfect for creating an arrangement around the candle.  They’ll add a splash of color to my table without taking up too much room – always a challenge with a centerpiece.

 

Now, I love party treats but, I particularly like to send guests home with a little something for the next morning.  My next item also works with the #stampingsunday theme for this week – treat bags.

I used one of the Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags which are food safe.  I gusseted the bag and created a flat bottom so that the bag stands on it’s own.  This way the baked goody won’t get smashed.  After folding over a top flap, I added a length of Gold Sequin trim from which I had removed several sequins so that it ends in a wisp of gold thread.  To top this, there a a couple of Simply Pressed Clay leaves held on with a Clothespin.

On the back side of each bag, I will clip a personalized love note.

I add just a quick note to let my guests know that I enjoyed their company and hope they will enjoy the enclosed treat with their morning coffee.

 

To the Cherry Cobbler base, I’ve added a strip of Color Me Autumn washi tape.  This is layered with leaves from For All Things and a Very Vintage button that’s been laced with Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Sorry I have no baked goody with which to send you on.  But, I do know there is a treat in store for you, several in fact.

    Sara: Your pressed clay leaves are awesome! I love how you made them even more 3D by wrapping them around the reinker bottles!

    Great use of the Simply Pressed Clay. The leaves look awesome around the candle!
