Welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I’m so glad you’re here…and there’s BIG news to share! We’re shaking things up this year on the Fancy Friday Design Team! This will be our last official ‘blog hop’ because we’re moving in a new direction! We’ll be posting a challenge on the first Friday of every month over on Instagram and Facebook. And then we’ll show you our team projects as the month progresses. We can’t wait to have you around …and any time you’re inspired by our challenge, tag us in or use hashtag #stampinfancyfriday. This month’s challenge is to create a project that shakes. It’s a perfect fit for this month with our Fancy Friday Design Team shake up…and I think any time’s a perfect time to make shakers because they’re always super fun!
I’ve been wanting to make something a bit nontraditional for Valentine’s Day for my grandaughter…something that would reflect her personality and things she loves. She can be sweet and soft…and loves to give hugs and kisses. She definitely knows what she wants…and isn’t afraid to say “no”. She’s a daddy’s girl…and loves to hang out with him in his garage and tinker with the tools. So…I pulled out the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating dies…along with the Stitched Labels dies…and got to work. Here’s what I came up with!
I grabbed a Pool Party card base and used the Stitched Labels dies to create the stitching lines…cut the shaker window, covering it with a piece of Window Sheets…and added the embossed sentiment using clear powder. I used clear powder to emboss the car image and cut it with it’s coordinating die. I also cut the gears cluster in Rococo Rose and vellum cardstock…and the Stitched Labels large doily-like frame in white. I attached the car, the cars and a bit of the doily to the card base…framed the shaker window with foam adhesive…and poured in the sequins. I finished up by added a white panel to the card’s inside to close up the shaker…tied on some white twine…and attached a couple of metal elements. I think it’s perfect for her!
