Download Dish—Wonderland Party

I could not resist the Wonderland Party Ensemble (AU/NZ) for my daughter's seventh birthday. I only officially started planning about a week and a half before, but that’s the beauty of My Digital Studio, everything came together so quickly!

Here’s what I made with the ensemble and some coordinating traditional products.

1. Invitations:

2. Decorations:

  • Banners

  • Signs

  • Circle streamers and confetti (Inspired by the embellishment in the download.)

3. Party favors:

  • Bag

  • Notebook

  • Key chain

  • Lip balm

  • Deck of cards

4. Food:

  • Cupcake toppers

  • Flags for the straws and lid covers for the drink jars

  • My sister made those tarts with the heart-shaped strawberries. (Get it . . . Queen of Hearts?) They were so delicious!

My daughter was so happy with how everything came together which made me happy to be her mom and grateful for My Digital Studio. I have to give a shout out to my other sister for these awesome pictures. And to my mom who hosted the party and helped out with everything. (I have the BEST family!)

At the party we:

  • Had a tea party.

  • Went on a treasure hunt and pretended to follow Alice through Wonderland.

  • Played croquet.

  • Colored pictures.

  • Watched Jenna open her presents.

  • Ate cupcakes and fruit tarts.

I forgot to take step-by-step photos of each project, but I have plans to show you each project in more detail in upcoming posts. What would you like to learn more about?

Splattering Tutorial

Splattering Tutorial

This is a fun idea!   AND...a great way to use your Aqua Painters!

Today I wanted to demonstrate some basic techniques for creating different splatter sizes. I like to use the larger Aqua Painter for all of the splattering I do because the bristles hold more ink. I start by filling the Aqua Painter with some Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill and rubbing alcohol. The more ink refill I use, the darker the splatters will be.

Small splatters

Squeeze your Aqua Painter to get some ink into the bristles. Then lightly tap your Aqua Painter on your pointer finger and over your project.

Medium splatters

Squeeze your Aqua Painter to get ink into your bristles. It’s basically the same motion you used with the small splatters—without the tapping . . . and you will want to hold your Aqua Painter more upright. Quickly move your Aqua Painter towards your project and stop abruptly. You’re basically trying to fling the ink onto your project.

Big splatters (drops)

Hold your Aqua Painter vertical—and high above your project. Squeeze the Aqua Painter and let it drip onto your project.

Another fun technique you can try is mixing VersaMark Refill with rubbing alcohol. This will leave sticky splatters that you can cover with embossing powder, like our Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. So fun!

I hope you found these tips helpful. If you have any questions, let me know! I’d be happy to answer them.
