This little slugger is rounding third base and heading for home. Always a “hit” to welcome a new baby boy and this baby shower was a sweet nod to his dad’s love of baseball! Used my favorite onsie cutter is from Kaleida Cuts and “baby” cutter from Bobbi’s Cutters on Etsy!
This sweet baby will be coming this spring. She or he will be welcomed even more than the blooming flowers! Welcome, welcome!
Theodore R M was born on February the 11th! Happy, healthy babies are a great reason to celebrate! These cookies are for a bit belated baby shower celebrating Teddy (that’s what they are going to call him!). Naturally, a teddy bear theme was perfect for the occasion.
The teddy bears (panda bear cutter from Bobbi’s Cookie Cutters) started with a base coat of brown. Using Lila Loa‘s book for guidance, I mixed chocolate brown with purple to achieve the desired color. Once that was dry, I dabbed on some spots of same color icing and stippled with a stiff brush to achieve the “teddy bear texture.”
I let that dry for 1 hour and added the arms, nose and feet. After drying overnight, I stippled the arms and added hands.
Simple eye and nose details were added last, along with the rosy cheeks. The flower was made using wafer paper and a Martha Stewart (I think) Recollections punch (from Michaels). I painted them silver with a blue center (to match other cookie highlights ). Flowers were incorporated to match the invitation.
The stencil airbrushed on the 2 other cookies can be found at Killer Zebras.
There are some people in life that you just HAVE to admire. These cookies are heading to a baby shower celebrating the coming of their FOURTH boy! Holy testosterone! (As you can tell, we have a mere two children. And I was pretty happy to have the energy for them….).
Blue and the number 4 were interwoven throughout the set. I added a little silver bling because everybody deserves a little bling (especially a mom of four!). The “4” cutter is part of the zebrawood cutter set from SheyB ! They have such fast and friendly service!
This little outfit cutter is my current favorite. Can’t get over how adorable it is. Thank you Kaleida Cuts (so many designs to take advantage of!)!!! The clever technique is from the genius Tammy Holmes. Utterly brilliant design. Utterly delicious eye candy.
Every boy in this family has a name that begins with the letter “C.” The fourth will as well. And heaven forbid that I not take advantage of a chance to word play. I knew love was in the foreseeable future…
Just a quick post of some baby girl onesies I didi a while back. They were done in the ever popular pink, grey, and white theme.
