Diaper Cake

I made this diaper cake for my daughter’s baby shower this week-end.  72 diapers rolled up with a rubber band around each one, 3 layers. I have a baby bottle in the middle of the bottom and part of the middle layer. Then I bought a little blanket with the a puppy attached, so hopefully Anthony will only want to carry that blankie around and not the big one. I put little socks, a couple of wrist toys, a boo-boo cow, (in his tummy there is a plastic cube that you freeze and then put back in the cow for boo-boos), pacifier (when you drop the pacifier it automatically closes up so it doesn’t get dirty. Got to love that!), & a teething ring.

Then I made her some thank you’s using Baja Breeze and So Saffron c/s. I found a card in one of the magazines the I get and thought this would be a cute thank you card. I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch and one of the Sixxiz Texturz plates to emboss the top of the rattle. For the handle on the rattle I punched a 3/4″ circle punch and then a 1″ circle punch over that to get the ring. Then I used my scallop edge punch to punch the corner on one side and rounded the other corners. (Thanks to Patty Bennett’s tutorial) Added some ribbon and  sponged around the edges and then you are good to go.

Card Purse

Here is another Card Purse using the Urban Garden DSP and the Upsy Daisy stamp set. I hardly ever use white card stock as my base for my cards, and here all the cards are Whisper White. This DSP is so stunning that the white really shows of the paper. The flower on the purse is from the DSP. I just cut 3 different flowers and layered them on top of each other and then curved the paper a little to give it dimension. Click on the photo to see it better.

So have I convinced you yet? Do you want  to join my Stamp Club? I have 2 openings  left. We meet the 3rd Sunday of the month at 1pm. You are required to place a $25 order and we rotate being the hostess. So that means that you will receive one level 1 hostess set and $15 of free merchandise at least. You can always get  outside orders to boost your hostess benefits. Can’t commit to every month. Thats ok, I would still love to have you come. You can place a $25 order or pay $10.
Wait till you see what we are doing next month…..I’ll post tomorrow.

Stamp Club Project, Card Purse

Check out the project my Club Gal’s did yesterday. I found this pattern on Julie’s Paper Pleasing Idea blog. We used the DSP, ribbon & stamp sets from Sale-a-bration which are all free. (Free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 you spend). Click on the photos to see them better. We also used the Texturz Plates and Emblosslits from Sizzix on the cards. The Girl’s made 4 cards with envelopes that fit inside the purse. This would make such a cute Easter, Mother’s Day, or Just Because gift.
