New Wildly Happy Card for June 2019 IRBH

Inking Royalty Blog Hop June 2019 "New"

I’m Wildly Happy that it’s time for the Inking Royalty June Blog Hop! This year we’re featuring one word each month. June’s word is NEW, which is appropriate since this is the month when the new annual catalog went live. I imagine a lot of us will be using new products for our projects – I know I am!

As soon as the new catalog went live, I couldn’t wait to get the new Wildly Happy stamp set on page 101. It has some of the sweetest images in the whole catalog.

I especially love the elephants. I learned a lot about these magnificent creatures when I visited the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand a couple years ago. One of the elephants I saw was using her trunk to pull down bamboo trees – very big bamboo trees. The pattern of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper I used for the background on this card reminds me of bamboo leaves. It looks like mommy and baby are nuzzling in a cozy bamboo forest. So sweet!

Little Twinkle Congratulations Card

I made today’s card with the Twinkle Twinkle suite of products. I used the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, Little Twinkle stamp set, Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins, and Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine.

It’s meant to be congratulations card for new parents, but could also be for anyone with something new and exciting happening in their life, like a new house, now job, new marriage, even new brighter lighting!

Stampin’ Up! Diaper Cake

I recently made my very first diaper cake. I know, I know, they’ve been ubiquitous at baby showers for years now, but somehow I just never got around to making one. Until now. It was surprisingly easy. The hardest part was getting all those diapers bundled together without them going every which way. It helps to have an extra pair of hands for that step. Otherwise it was a piece of cake. <wink>  I used the Moon Baby stamp set as well and the Pretty Kitty and Bella & Friends stamp sets, and the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP.) I used Powder Pink and Pool Party to create a gender neutral cake, for times when you don’t know the baby’s gender, or for when you know there are a boy AND a girl. 

Kittens and puppies seemed like an appropriate baby theme. I mean, they’re babies, too. So Pretty Kitty and Bella & Friends were the perfect stamp sets to use.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3″ x 12″, 4 pieces of one pattern for the bottom tier, and 3 pieces of another pattern for the top tier 

Stamped with the Pretty Kitty stamp set:

  • 6 cats in Memento black ink onto scraps of Whisper White card stock (CS)

Stamped with the Bella & Friends stamp set:

  • 6 dogs in Memento black ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS

Stamped with the Moon Baby stamp set:

  • 2 of the baby-on-moon images in Memento black ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • cats, dogs, and babies
  • slightly larger circles from Powder Pink and Pool Party CS, to mat the stamped cat and dog images

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • cats & dogs in Pink Pirouette and Pool Party
  • babies in Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Ivory, and Bronze
  • one white doily in Pink Pirouette
  • one white doily in Pool Party
  • NOTE: I only colored the outer edges of the doilies, since most of the center would be covered up. I also learned – the hard way – to be sure to color the front side of the doily. The back side is too rough and will tear up the brush tip of your marker. Also, you can just use an ink pad to color the doilies.

Assembled the cake:

  • rolled individual diapers and held them with rubber bands
  • gathered enough diaper rolls together to create the bottom tier of the cake, and tied ribbon around to keep them together
  • did the same thing to create the smaller top tier of the cake
  • NOTE: I think I used about 50 diapers or so. It will depend on the diapers you use and on the size of your cake platter.
  • glued together the lengths of DSP and wrapped around each cake tier
  • glue the stamped images onto the larger die cut circles, then glued them onto the DSP strips
  • glued the two doilies together, lining up the holes around the edges
  • adhered a baby image to each side of the doilies using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • threaded a length of Solid Whisper White twine through the holes in the doilies at the top, and tied the ends to two wooden skewers
  • poked the skewers down into the cake, careful not to puncture the diapers

Pink & Blue Baby Shower Party Favor Cigars

Today’s project is made with several retiring products: World’s Best Trophy stamp set, Archival Basic Black ink pad, and card stock in Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and Soft Sky. Chocolate Chip is the perfect reddish brown color for a cigar. I wrapped it around large rolls of Sweetarts candies. The cigar bands are strips of card stock with 1″ punched circles. I didn’t have a stamp set that included “boy,” although there are a few that have the word “girl.” So I used the “son” and “daughter” from the World’s Best Trophy stamp set. These make great party favors for a baby shower. You can change the band color and sentiment for any occasion.

You can see everything that is retiring HERE. Everything is available through May 31, or while supplies last.

 

Here’s what I made:

  • daughter in Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Pink Pirouette CS

Cut using the 1″ Circle Punch:

Assembled the cigars:

  • burnished the Chocolate Chip CS pieces, and both of the CS strips, with a Bone Folder to soften and curl them
  • wrapped the Chocolate Chip CS pieces around rolls of SweetTarts candy and secured using Tear & Tape
  • wrapped the CS strips around the cigars and secured using Tear & Tape

Whole Lot of Lovely Baby Shower Chocolate Bars

I am back from a fun, amazing, full, exhausting weekend full of stamping events: two official Stampin’ Up! events and two events hosted by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. I gave a presentation at the first event, Brian’s Spring Stamp-Along on April 6 hosted by Brian King. Today I’m sharing one of the projects from my presentation; chocolate bars decorated with A Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper for a baby shower. It’s a very quick and easy project. I mean very quick and easy. For the basic design, you need a chocolate bar, a couple pieces of paper, and a baby sock. Then you can froufrou it up however you want.

 

Here’s what I made:
