Doc McStuffins Birthday


I love this kind of challenge! When I get a call from a potential client in need of something essential but obscure, I am SO on the case. I got a call recently from a friend in need of Doc McStuffins party ware and was reminded of me when she looked on Etsy seeing not much artistry or selection.


It can be a challenge to find Doc McStuffins party ware. Who knew? With her being new and all the range with the young ones you'd think it would be in abundance. NOPE. So, in order to make a darling little girl's wish come true, I was hired to make 24 cupcake picks and wrappers. You will not believe how hard it was to find Doc McStuffins stickers. After calling all over town, I finally found the stickers at Five Below. I must say, that's a great store. Always has what is needed for less. Don't sleep on Five Below!


This was the first time I made cupcake wrappers. I decided to use my eBosser to add texture with their Delicate Dots folder. In 3 passes, all 24 wrappers were embossed. The folder is 8 1/2 x 11" and the machine is electric!! No more cranking!!! Woo hoo!! 8 wrappers fit in the folder at once. I love my eBosser!!! And I loved how the cupcake picks came out with all the different characters and sayings.


Supplies:
  • DCWV pink glitter cardstock punched with 2" marvy circle punch
  • Recollections white cardstock punched with 1.5" marvy circle punch and inked with Tim Holtz distress ink - Seedless Preserves
  • Bazzill purple cardstock cut at 8" fit to length - Cricut Cartridge Life's A Party
  • eBosser - Delicate dots embossing folder
  • Sandylion Doc McStuffins stickers
  • alphas from my stash
  • Terrifically tacky tape

Kamilah turned 4, so making a special pick for her was oh so important! Using the topmost part of the sticker sheet (the label) I fussy cut the large image of Doc McStuffins and combined it with a smaller sticker. On the back, the branded bandaid and personalization complete the look.



The family was gracious enough to share some pictures of the event. Here's a view of some of the dressed cupcakes! Everyone gave a glowing review of them saying "it was some of the best handmade work they've seen!" Makes me feel good. The best review was from the birthday girl who was overjoyed and so excited. Happy 4th Kamilah!
