Paper: CSS Release in Review: Party Hop

August 11, 2012

Come with me…
and you’ll be…
in a world of pure imagination!
Any other Willy Wonka lovers out there?! If so, not only are you humming that tune right now, but you are also going to love all the sweetness coming up in today’s post!
Today the entire Clear and Simple Stamps Design Team is joining in on one heck of a party! We are all using our supplies to throw a party – with the theme of our choosing!
Being a lover of anything called “dessert”, it was only fitting that my party have a whole lotta sweetness. I hope you will sit tight and scroll through all the photos I have for you today  – because there are A LOT (15 to be exact!)
…but before you can attend my party, I’d better give you a formal invitation, right?
Who says that an invitation can’t be a gift on it’s own!? I used the Party Favor 2 Box to create a giftable invitation. I stamped the top with Circles Plus, then added a die cut from Favor Flags to let the recipient know that this was a party invitation.

Inside, I placed a mini card measuring 2.5″ square which was a perfect fit for the invitation as well as a pool of jellybeans! 

Using Party Elements: Celebration as well as Apothecary, I stamped the inside and outside of the mini invite.
Now that you’ve been invited (and hopefully accepted!) it’s time for the party….

Now how about a tour of this dessert table? You won’t believe just how many CSS products are perfect for your parties!
The Banner 1 Die Cuts Collection offered just about everything I needed to create this focal point of my dessert table. I stamped each piece of the banner with Circles Plus to create a cohesive theme.
The new Cupcake Wrappers were an obvious choice for this party and I created a simple label for this arrangement using Labels 9 and the beautiful “Eat Cupcakes” sentiment from Sweet Sentiments.  

To create these color-coordinated candy bar wrappers, I first wrapped chocolate bars with metallic silver wrapping paper. Then, I stamped white cardstock with Circles Plus and added a label with the newly released Wrappers Die collection. The sentiments from Sweet Sentiments could not be any more perfect for this project!

Again, the Wrappers Die collection proved to be the perfect frame for labeling this pile of decadent truffles and yummy chocolate dipped lady fingers. Here, I used computer generated wording that coordinated with the stamps throughout the rest of the dessert table.

Oreo, anyone? Again, I used my computer to create this label and framed it using the border die from Mini Tri-Fold 1.

The Toppers die collection and coordinating stamp set were absolutely perfect and super easy to use on these treat bags filled with homemade mini donuts and chocolate covered almonds. A Favor Flag and labels from Sweet Sentiments finished off the packaging.
And just in case there was only one use for those toppers, here, I used the largest Toppers die to create a tent fold label.
Last up is one of my favorite elements of this dessert table! With a few strips of cardstock and a whole lot of triangle die cuts, I created this candy shaped treat boxes! Aren’t they just adorable?! Let me know if you’d like to know how to create these for yourself! They require a bit of work and attention to detail – but I think they are totally worth it!
Okee dokee – have you made it to the end? Have you passed out from sugar overload? I hope not! You’ve got a ton more inspiration to see on the blogs of the rest of the CSS Design Team! Happy Party Hopping!
Until Later Loverlies,
AmberKG
