Parties just make me happy, especially when they look so nice :) Lemme walk you through this one...
First up, the invitation. It features the new CSS set, Party Elements: Celebration. I stamped the invitation headings, and added the info by hand. Speaking of "by hand" - I drew the tents you see scattered throughout the party. Simple, simple, but effective if you don't have exactly what you're looking for in your stamp collection. The red banner is also from the new set, and the number 4 comes from Cake Decorating Too. I used the cupcake-wrapper-as grass again, and added some starry skies patterned paper.
smaller cupcake wrapper die, and the favor flags stamp set and dies. They sat atop delicious nutella cupcakes with a vanilla/chocolate swirled icing (click *here* for the link - it was so easy to do and looks so great!)
orange homemade chocolates...
rustic-looking chocolate rice krispie squares...
and, my sister's show-stopping s'mores ice cream cake (with a brownie-bottom. I can't even tell you how yummy it was):
Clear and Simple Stamps blog for all the links.
And please, whatever you do...
don't feed the bears.
