Coloring Book Party Favor

Today I’m sharing a party favor or activity for a child’s birthday party. It’s a coloring book and watercolor pencils in a decorated stamp case. I used the Picture Perfect Party and Just Add Color Designer Series Papers (DSP) and the Crafting Forever stamp set to create this fun gift. All the colors I used were inspired by the Picture Perfect Party DSP.

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
