Tonight was a very special night, I got to meet the newest edition to the family of one of my co-workers ... she welcomed a beautiful baby girl just over a week ago.
We all got together to celebrate this joyous occasion with a Baby shower, food, gifts, good friends and of course the guest of honor.
Please welcome to this big crazy world the precious Hannah Marie!
|Isn't she just so cute?!?|
I wanted to try to make a diaper cake for the shower, so off to the store I went and came home with a box of diapers and a few other supplies and started rolling up tiny little diapers.
After all the rolling I assembled all the diapers into the 3 tiers, then decided that the bottom tier was in need of another row. The diapers had Minnie and Mickey Mouse on them so I made sure that all the Minnies were on the outside rows.
Now how to decorate the cake? Up to my craft area I went and started up the Cricut, I used the New Arrival and Baby Steps cartridges for this project.
Here is a look at my first diaper cake.

After painting, I embossed Welcome Baby by Inkadinkado onto a piece of pink cardstock, colored in 'Baby' with a Copic and fussy cut it out and attached it to the H.
Then I cut out the Baby cuddling with the moon from the Baby Steps cartridge. I stamped this super cute face from the Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment and used my white Gelly Roll pen, a couple of Bic markers and some chalk. The face on the moon is from the Critter Faces Set A Medium by Peachy Keen.
The sentiment is from a set of Dollar stores stamps and is embossed in Recollections Party Pink.
The next 5 cuts all come from the Baby Steps cartridge.
I used the Peachy Keen The Cornies Assortment for the face on this cute little bib and patterned paper from a Momenta Super Paper Pad.
I would have to say that this is my favorite cut of them all, I used the Peachy Keen Monster Mash Assortment for this little toy and added letter brads in her initials H.M.I.
Here I cut out a mini circle using my Spellbinders Circle Dies and a Fiskars punch for the heart to match the paper. Then I stamped a tiny face using the Peachy Keen Hot Cocoa set and added 3 white button brads which I colored with a Copic to make them pink.
Next I stamped a face from the Critter Face Set A Medium in Memento Rose Bud and added a cute little pink bow to the top.
Finally I cut out the soother with some paper from Recollections and stamped a sweet baby face from the Peachy Keen Cutie Pie Face Assortment.

I cut out a scalloped circle using the Mini Monograms cartridge then embossed the Sweet Dreams Puppy from Inkadinkado's Baby Love with Recollections Party Pink.
Added 5 Copic colored button brads to it and there you have it... my first Onesie card.
The inside sentiment is Baby Star Dust by Stampendous, also embossed in Party Pink.
