Simply Sunday Challenge - Favors/Treats/Party

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend! I am so excited to share with you my first Simply Sunday Project as a member of the Getting Cricky Design Team! This week, the theme is Favors/Treats/Party.
My favors are for a Queen for a Day birthday party. Every woman should be queen for at least one day, right?! I made a magic wand and crown using sentiments from Kristal's Positive Thoughts stamp set. $1 from each set sold benefits Storefront Shelter, a homeless shelter for children and youth. What an awesome cause. I feel so good using her stamps - not only do I LOVE them, but they benefit those in need. Click HERE to purchase your own set!
For the magic wand, I used Core Couture paper (so sparkly and perfect for a queen!). I cut the pretty queen from Once Upon A Princess at 3". I added strips of glossy accents to her hair to give it some dimension and blue googly eyes. The wand is actually a drink stirrer that I purchased on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $1.25 for a dozen in assorted colors. I knew they would come in handy some day! I added three different types of Hobby Lobby ribbon and used my iRock to adhere the sparkling gems befitting a queen. I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities die to cut the shape for the sentiment, and used "A Queen is not afraid to fail" from Positive Thoughts. I inked the edges with Colorbok pink chalk.
The crown is also from Once Upon A Princess and created with Core Couture paper. I added strips of decorative ribbon and used my irock to attach the gems.
I used three different Positive Thoughts stamps: "Today is your day" for the birthday queen; "Attitude is everything" because a queen definitely needs an attitude; and "Whimsy is essential" because gosh darn it, it is! I used the same Nestibilities die for the sentiments, inked the edges with Colorbok pink chalk and adhered them with foam tape.
Did you know Kristal is releasing three new stamps sets? Let me tell you, they are AWESOME! Definitely must-have's! I am so excited for them I can hardly wait! You want to see them?? Get a sneak peak and all the details on Friday August 19th! Kristal will debut the stamps on a Ustream followed by a Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop! The fun starts on Friday, August 19th at 9:00 pm EST so mark your calendar - you do not want to miss this!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to Getting Cricky and link your favors/treats/party project :)

  26. Oh my gosh, Lisa! Your very first official DT project couldn't be more sprightly! :o) I LOVE all that gorgeous ribbon and the ultra shimmery papers. I seriously cannot get over the queen.. you made her so gorgeous, bursting with so much love and celebration. I don't think I've ever seen blue googly eyes.. they're fantastic! (And I love her sparkly shoes!) The crown is so impressive, too. The layering is fabulous and pink and green are always just stunning. Incredible set, my friend! :o)

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
