Baby Shower Decorations - part 2

Hello, I'm back!! Today I am going to share the card, diaper bouquets and banners that I did. I really had so much fun designing and doing all of these things for my sister-in-law's baby shower. I had so many ideas going through my head but ultimately we landed on a coral, turquoise and pink color scheme with hot air balloons and bunnies. I wanted to do something that wasn't the traditional pink for a baby girl shower. And I was just in love with the hot air balloon diaper cake that I had to have that in there somewhere. So imagine my surprise when I go into Carter's a few weeks before the shower and they have a whole section of baby girl's clothes in peach and turquoise with hot air balloons on it. What are the chances of that. It was perfect! We were doing a clothesline banner so the 5 onesie set that they had was a perfect fit for this. (The set included gray which was a color we also used). I love how everything just coordinated so well.

So I will start with the clothesline banner. I couldn't get a great picture of this so this is the best I have right now (I will update this if her friend got a better picture of it).


All of the clothes were hung with clothespins on Smokey Slate Chevron ribbon (which is hard to see in the photo). In between each onesie, I die cut a onesie from the Papertrey Ink die in Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana and Pink Pirouette. The heart is from the Hearts a Flutter framelits.

Next up is the "It's a Girl" banner. (Again, sorry for the bad/blurry photos). I wasn't able to take any at home so the best I could do was while it was hung up at the restaurant.


I printed out all of the letters from MDS in Crisp Cantaloupe, which were then punched with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. I then punched scallop circles from Pink Pirouette cardstock. The Coastal Cabana flowers were from the Floral Framelit dies. And all of these items were then glued to paper doilies and attached to Calypso Coral chevron ribbon with clothespins. Next to the "A" letter I added 2 Coastal Cabana roses from the Flower Spiral die.

We will now move on to the diaper bouquets. This was an idea that I had seen at another baby shower that I really liked. I liked it instead of the traditional diaper cake. I made 4 of these for the tables. I searched pinterest for how to make the diaper flowers. Then I used the Flower Spiral die to add roses to each bouquet. I added 5 roses to each bouquet in Pink Pirouette and Crisp Cantaloupe. I added Smokey Slate and Calypso Coral chevron ribbon to each of the mason jars.


And last but not least is my card for the baby gift.



I cased the 3rd card on this site. I just changed a few things to the colors and theme of the shower. Since I actually don't have the Baby We've Grown stamp set, I just printed out the images I wanted from My Digital Studio. Looking back, I should have printed the bunny bigger but oh well. I used the Fresh Prints DSP stack for the background. I colored and cut out the bunny and used the Starburst framelits for the "Brand New" image. To finish it off I added Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon and 2 pink buttons from my button stack.

Now that this is done, I hope to have a little more time to get back to crafting. I do have my son's second birthday invite to share as soon as I get that finished. Then I hope to play with some new catalog goodies soon! Thanks for stopping by!
