My Frozen Party – Stampin’ Up! Style

Let the Frozen frenzy continue!  Today I am sharing all things that go into the category of party styling.  Quite a few of my Frozen party décor items were ‘made with love’ using Stampin’ Up! supplies – party bags, hanging snowflakes, happy birthday banner & cupcake toppers.  Then a few other lovelies to finish off.  The pictures are a combination of my photography, Dad’s photography & professional photography (thanks Siobhan!).  Thanks also to Southwest Special Occasions who made Maddie’s birthday cake complete with the best gluten free cupcakes I’ve ever tasted!  I wish I had an excuse for parties & cupcakes every day!!!  Kelly x

Frozen Themed Cards – Anna

Next on the big screen is Anna.  She is my daughter’s favourite and the hero of the movie!  One again, this princess punch art uses the Dress Up Framelits.  Princess cards are quite addictive!  Kelly x

How to make Princess Anna’s Dress:

  • Using the sleeveless dress framelit, cut out 2 Pacific Point dresses and 1 Basic Black dress
  • Cut 1 PP dress in half and leave one as is.
  • Either by freehand or using the Full Heart punch, create a ‘v’ shape in the middle of the BB dress.  Add Gold Foil to the back of the BB piece and cut around it to create a small gold border.
  • Using Rose Red, cut the largest die from the Apothecary Accents framelits set – cut this in half longways.
  • Cut two Rose Red 1-1/4″ circles.  Cut each again using the punch so you end up with an oval shape.
  • Cut a Tempting Turquoise 1″ circle for the neckline and a small strip of Elegant Eggplant for her cape (I used the now retired Horizontal Slot Punch).
  • Attach all the pieces together so they look like the picture below.  You may have to trim some of the pieces down so they fit better (especially the Apothecary Accent pieces).

Frozen Themed Cards – Elsa

I made a series of Frozen cards in the lead up to Maddie’s party as part of the fun.  I’ll start by sharing Elsa with you as she is the ‘pin-up’ girl of Frozen.  I am so sad that the Dress Up Framelits are now discontinued – they are perfect for princess cards.  Maybe you still have them in your collection like I do and my cards inspire you to make a Frozen card for a special princess you know!  Kelly x

How to make Queen Elsa’s Dress:

  • Using the sleeveless dress framelit, cut out 3 Tempting Turquoise dresses
  • Cut the straps from one dress, cut another one in half and leave one as is.
  • Either by freehand or using the Full Heart punch, create a ‘v’ shape in the middle of the strapless dress.
  • Again using the sleeveless dress framelit, cut just the top section of the dress using Vellum
  • Using Vellum, cut the largest die from the Apothecary Accents framelits set – cut this in half longways.
  • Attach all the pieces together so they look like the picture below.  You may have to trim some of the pieces down so they fit better (especially the Apothecary Accent pieces).
  • Jazz up Elsa’s dress using glitter – I used Crystal Effects & Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter and Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.

No better friend than a sister …

The birthday fun continues throughout this week.  I’m going to share as much of my Frozen party with you as I can.  I hope you enjoy it – I’ve had so much fun using my Stampin’ Up! supplies to create a beautiful birthday party for Miss M.  Where there is colour coordination – I’m in!!!

Today’s share is another birthday card.  I thought a Frozen themed Anna & Elsa ‘sister’ card was perfect for Alexa to give to Maddie.  I’ve added the custom ‘no better friend than a sister’ saying across the top as this truly defines the special relationship the girls share – they adore each other.  Later in the week I will share individual Anna & Elsa cards.  I just love the drawing Alexa did for the middle of the card with a picture of her & Maddie.  They are so precious at this age!  Kelly x
