Tea Party Invitation

From a Birthday Party to Bridal Shower... Tea Parties are back and are meant to celebrate!! 
 
Here is my twist on the Tea Party invitation... come and open it up... it is the ticket for a great invitation!
With a small 5oz. canning jar for the base... Painting the sentiment from the Tea Party stamp set (#129135) with Night of Navy and Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker so that I could capture part and not all of the sentiment.  Stamping this on our Tea Lace Paper Doily (#129399) for the top of this jar.  Hot Glue this on (but watch your fingers - I now have some nasty burns from this project.. eek!).   When you wrap the sides you can tie it up... here the white 1/4" Stitched Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon (#126877) and a side bow is ideal (and super cute). 
Stamping this cure oval on our Etcetera Designer Series Paper (#130129) with our Night of Navy ink (#126970) for a great coordinated vintage look.
With our That's the Ticket stamp set (#131946) stamped twice a piece so they can back up to one another for a Birthday, Admit One and a Fill-In Ticket..
 

When you have all your pieces punched and ready to go (the Ovals Framelits Collection #129381 and Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883) this jar is ready to be assembled. 
 
Wrapping the printed Etcetera Designer Series Paper's vintage ad page gives interest while the Tea Party covers the seam!
Backing up each item to one - another and a ribbon hot-glued in the middle... you can write the details of this event on either an attachment or the blank ticket.
Hot glue the ticket to the inside of the lid... adding our Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons to the lid and the bottom of the ribbon... this adds to the vintage feel and the buttons on the bottom of the ribbon to help the ribbon have some tension.


Tie this up with a trendy and vintage flair... from awesome buttons, beautiful stamps and coordinating punches/framelits... you can easily make a wonderful project/invitation/gift.  With room for more, from pictures to tea bags to more information on the event (where someone could be registered, etc.). 
With the clear glass allowing a 'peak' inside.. excitement over receiving this amazing invitation is sure to abound!

Tea Parties with a twist... twist this lid and be amazed at what you can add inside! 
 
How do YOU Party?!?!
Celebrate??  Invite??
Think outside the box and consider a Jar!
Re-Purposing items is fun, eco-friendly and cool!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
