A friend of mine asked if I could make some placecards for her daughters 4th birthday party. Of course I told her I could and then I asked the theme. When she told me Disney Princess's I thought I was going to have a seizure after remembering the horrible time I had with Tinkerbell. I was going to do something simple with crowns but then in the long run I ended up getting Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True so I could cut the princess's that matched the plates for the party.
I have to tell you that the Cri-Kits came in so handy!! I wanted to make the names in something glittery and wanted the font to match a fairytale. I thought I could use Storybook for the font if it would work okay with the Cri-Kits. I was thrilled with the results!! I did go back and fill in a bit with my Stampin Up markers but the names came out wonderfully!
I was pleased that all the little swirls and notches were clear and precise.
Here is the whole set of the place cards all finished. I was told the little girls really liked the place cards, and my friend was quite pleased with the end results.
While it was quite a task cutting all the princess's I do have to say they weren't too bad to cut. Putting them together took some time and patience but it was worth the work.
Here is a picture of Cinderella. I wanted to show the shadowing I did. I used Stampin Up inks and blender pen to do the shading on the images and I think it really added to the dimension of the characters. I also added a little glitz to each princess, whether it was Stickles or gems, I wanted each to have a little sparkle.
Here are pictures that you can see a little better if you want to see more detail. Don't forget you can click to enlarge the picture.
I think I will be using the Cri-Kits for making details on my projects!
Those are adorable! I might have to try something like this in the future for my daughter!!ReplyDelete
Those are fabulous!! My granddaughter would love them!ReplyDelete
These are really really nice. They will add somthing really special to her party. I can just see how excited all the little girls will be to have there name with a princess.ReplyDelete
I like how you did the shadowing. Trying to figure out how you made everthing so perfect.
These are amazing Okie. You get a gold star! Not just for creating these fab placecards but also for the patience it took to piece them together. Way to go Okie!ReplyDelete

OH My ... these do look wonderful, I love the look of the Cri-Kits on the lettering ... but I love the princesses even more ... the extra bling on each one is perfect ... this is going to be such a fun party for the kids ... and look at the pretty souvenirs they will have to take home with them!ReplyDelete

Beautiful job! I know the time it takes to put all these characters together, but oh how fantastic they look - and using the Cri-kit pens is an excellent idea (didn't have these when I first used the Disney cart)!ReplyDelete

Okie -- this convinces me that my Cricut needs a new blade .. (or a new operator). I have this cartridge and I can't for the LIFE OF ME get Cinderella to come out looking close to that. Her fingers get all messed up. ACK. Maybe I'll try that.ReplyDelete
Cute - cute - cute.ReplyDelete
WOW Okie! This came out wonderful! I love the look of theme! Sooo girly! :o) And you are right about the Cri-kit... they work great... Now I just need to go and order them! :o)ReplyDelete

Great Job Okie! I have that Dreams come True cartridge too, but I need to practice with it more. Love the cri-ket pens too, I need to get some of those.ReplyDelete
Love those. You did an awesome job considering those princesses are hard to put together.ReplyDelete
Can I ask you what size of the princess?ReplyDelete
Can I ask what size are those princesses were?ReplyDelete
Oh gosh it's been so long ago I don't really remember but I figure no less than 4". Due to the small parts with the princess cuts I try not to cut anything small than that.Delete
