Good Morning, Stampers!  Today I have another custom made card for a customer (turned downline).  She got so excited about creating the invitations that she signed up for the kit so she could buy all her supplies and tools at the demonstrator discount!  Smart move, Fabiola! Welcome to team “Creative Royalty”!

Fabiola texted me a photo she found online and said “can we make something like this in the colors I want, using the  Stampin’ Up! Quinceanera stamp set?”.  My response was a quick – “YES!” and I went straight to work designing. 🙂 This was the prototype I came up with:Handmade Quincenanera CardI started out with a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock that was 11 1/2″ x 6″.  I scored it at 8.5″ and 4.25″. Next I cut two pieces of Tempting Turquoise card stock 5.75″ x 4″ and two pieces of Whisper White card stock 5.5″ x 3.75″. On one of the Whisper White I stamped the girl from the Stampin’ Up! Quinceanera stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento ink and colored her with the Rich Razzleberry and Flesh Tone Blendabilities alcohol markers.  I added a little sparkle to her with the two way glue pen and the dazzling diamonds glitter.

quinceanera invitation bottomFor the bottom, I wasn’t sure what to put there until I had more information form her about the event.  So, I stamped a few flowers from the flower shop stamp set and a scroll from the Stampin’ Up! Chalk Lines stamp set in Versamark ink and used the Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto the Whisper White layer and heat set it with the Stampin’ Up! heat tool. I used a 12″ piece of 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and wrapped it around both the Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White card stock layers before adhering to the Rich Razzleberry card base and tied a pretty knot.

quinceanera invitation closedThe card folds on the three score lines to close.  I made a 1.25″ x 10″ strip of Tempting Turquoise card stock into a belly band and adhered a circle of Silver Glimmer paper punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.  I colored the sentiment with the Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ markers by coloring onto the stamp before stamping it onto the Whisper White card stock and punching out with the 1″ circle punch.  She was thrilled and ordered all the supplies to make it as her kit. 🙂  Gotta love that choose your own kit option!

We will be getting together soon to start making her invitations and planning her first Stampin’ Up! party as a demo and a member of my team, Creative Royalty!

Happy Stamping!
