May Stamp Club Surprise

Well it certainly has been a scary and wild couple of days here in Minneapolis.  Saturday and Sunday were spent in the basement while the weather went way out of control.  Saturday night a tornado touched down just about 2 miles from our house.  Then on Sunday afternoon there was another tornado touchdown about 5 miles away on the other side of us.  Then 2 more touchdowns as it made it's way up to the North of us.  Thankfully, we are okay.  However, there was a lot a damage not that far away. 

This picture is from the touchdown Saturday night which was right up the road from us in Medina, a mere 2 miles away.  No, I didn't take this picture. 

Moving on, Remember I said in my last post that I had a Surprise to share from my May Stamp Club.  Well one of my ladies at Stamp Club is going to be a Mommy again pretty soon, so we decided that a Surprise Mini Shower was in order.  We were all going to make a card and then I decided that I needed that Special gift.  I have seen so many of these cute Diaper Cakes lately.  So, of course I just had to give it a try.  Off to the store I went to gather all the necessary items.  Then the rolling of all the diapers began.  Once you get all the diapers rolled, it's really pretty easy.

The happy Mom to be is going to have another little BOY!!  Just exactly what she wanted too!

So here we have my first attempt at the Diaper Cake.  Viola !!!

I found the cutest Teddy Bear for the Top of the cake, so I decided to go with that as my theme too.  I used Bashful Blue cardstock and the Celebrations Designer paper to make my bands around each layer.  Real Red and Pacific Point cardstock to make "BABY" on the cake front, using the Big Shot and Timeless Type alphabet dies and the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.   I used the Big Shot and the Stars die for the top layer and added all the little bears on each layer using toothpicks.  Scallop Circle Punch was perfect for making the little Teddy Bear Accents with Real Red grosgrain bows.  The Teddy Bear is from the Baby Bundle stamp set.  Added some Real Red Satin Ribbon bows on the bottom layer for the finishing touch and there you have it!!

Here's a close up of the front of the Diaper Cake.

Mom was surprised and Loved IT !!!!!  Mission accomplished.

As Always I Thank You for stopping by !!!

Happy Stamping !!!
