SNEAK PEEK DAY 1 - Bundle of Joy (Part Deux)

Sorry for only showing one pic and none of the details in my post earlier!  Anyway, here goes...these baby shower invitations were made using two stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge...the new release set is called Bundle of Joy and the older set is called Shower the Baby.  They work nicely together, don't you think?  I made each of them into shower invitations but they could easily be made into thank you or even congratulation cards.


I've been admiring every one's dresser cards in the SCS gallery for a long time now.  I've always wanted to make one, but really didn't have a reason before now.  I really like the way it turned out!  It was pretty straight forward to make.  A piece of double sided DP was cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored across the center.  The top and bottom pieces were cut a hair wider than 4 1/4" (maybe 1/8" bigger...I can't remember exactly now).  The drawers were 1" x 3 3/4".  Check out my new EK Success border punch on the bottom!  Love it!  All of the blue pieces (back side of the DP) were lightly sponged with Marina Mist.  Mini brads were fastened for the knobs and the drawers were popped up on Foam Squares.

The "hanger" is actually the scroll from the border punch.  I was going to make one out of wire, but thought this might work for what I wanted...it did!  The onesie (one of my favs in this set) was colored with Copic Markers before OCL's Sparkly Fluff was glued to the heart and was popped up on a Foam Square to help keep it in place.  The blanket in the bottom drawer is just a scrap piece of ribbon that was adhered with Glue Dots.

The inside is all stamps from the Shower the Baby set.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words.

Copic coloring:

Onesie:  B02, B01, B00, B000  Rattle (inside of card):  Y02, Y00, Y000, Y0000  Outline:  110







SUPPLIES
STAMPS:  OCL's Bundle of Joy, Shower the Baby
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Twinkle Twinkle American Crafts DP
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black; SU Marina Mist
ACCESSORIES:  Copic markers; ScorPal; EK Success border punch; sponge; mini brads from Colorbok; Foam Squares; ribbon from my stash; paper snips; Sakura Quickie Glue Pen; OCL's Sugar Sparkly Fluff; Stamp-a-ma-jig
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

My co-worker is throwing a baby shower for her step-daughter and she showed me the adorable invites she bought.  Of course I HAD to make one!  The store-bought one didn't have the diaper liner, the lacy bottom and there were slits in the card stock for the flaps.  I put my own spin on it and came up with this.  

The safety pins (from Bundle of Joy), were colored with Copic markers and cut out.  They were strategically popped up on the card front to hold the flaps into place then Glossy Accents were applied to give them a little added depth.  Check out the back side of the diaper!  Isn't it cute!?! 

Three strips of card stock were cut and a border punch was used to make the scallops...I was hoping it would resemble lace.  ***I was going to share the templates I created for the diaper and diaper liner...but I'm too tired to try to figure out how to link or attach a PDF to my blog.  If you're interested in receiving these templates, please request them through the comments.  If you leave your email address, I'll send them to you.***  UPDATE - I figured out how to link a PDF.  Here is the diaper template and the diaper liner template.  Please let me know if you have any problems downloading them.

The inside were all stamps from Shower the Baby.  The diaper liner was punched with the same border as the diaper bottom and adhered to the inside flap.

SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
  
Hang in there...we're almost done!  I found this onesie template online and tweaked it to make it more of what I wanted.  ***Again, I'm not sure how to attach or link a PDF to my blog so if you would like the tweaked onesie/bib template, please leave a request in the comments section with your email address and I'll send them to you.***  UPDATE - I figured out how to link a PDF.  Here is the onesie and bib template.  Please let me know if you have problems downloading it. The template was cut out on double-sided DP.  The bib was cut out with a Nestie then the neckline was hand cut . Holes were punched in the back and twine was used to tie the back.  The safety pin was made and attached as described above.  The duck is from Shower the Baby and was colored with Copic markers.  After it was colored, it was cut out and OCL's Sparkly Fluff was glued on to it then it was popped up on Foam Squares.


The inside of the card was all stamps from Shower the Baby.
