Fab Friday 56

I do love a Friday don’t I?! Nothing special about work yesterday, it was just work. I came home and got to see little Daniel. His bump on his head is healing nicely. Still running all over the place with abandon, still as cute as can be! My friend Heather deemed last night wine night so I went over to her house and had some Layer Cake Malbec, delicious. We watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower and discussed life. Always a good way to spend an evening. Tonight I have my friend Danielle’s mum’s 50th Birthday party, I am being picked up soย that will definitely be a good time! ๐Ÿ™‚

This Friday is a Fab Friday and this time around we have an interesting color combo…

Fab Fri 56 12-05-2014

As promised I used the new set that we got at the Occasions Catalog reveal to make a fun and simple shaker card. My card base is a piece of Crumb Cakeย Card Stock. I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to make the shaker by cutting a piece of Whisper White for the base, some Old Olive for the frame and a piece of Window Sheet. Some Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Cherry Cobbler is punched out with the Confetti Stars Border Punch to fill the shaker along with some 2013-2014 In-Color Sequins. The tag in the middle is from the One Tag Fits All Stamp Set* and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Bermuda Bay. I used the Note Tag Punch to punch it out and the 1/8″ Circle Punch to make a hole for my Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine to go through. I stamped the gem on Vellum with Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The back side is colored with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers and then I cut it out with my Paper Snips. Some very tiny slivers of Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the tag. A fun simple shaker card to let someone know how much you appreciate them! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday color challenge and your sneak peek at the new set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog! Stop by the blog and take a look at the rest of the design teams projects and upload one of yours to the gallery! Thank you very much for coming buy and I wish you all a fantastic Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Justin
    I had a feeling we would see something gray from you with this stamp set! And you did just that! Love the embossing on the vellum, it gives a”realistic”mom to the diamond. I really like how you made the entire front of the card the shaker!
    Did you place your pre order yet? I was still awake at 2 this morning so my order, at least part of all that i”need”,has been ordered.
    I really enjoyed meeting you on Wednesday. You are a very funny guy! I think we could definitely get into trouble with each other! We need to meet again, maybe half way and not during rush hour!
    Have a fanatasic Friday!

    1. Hello Donna!
      Thank you!! I wasn’t wild about the set when we got it but it’s growing on me! So glad that you enjoyed the card, I am loving the shaker cards!! It was great to meet you and get to sit with you too! Yes, we could definitely get into lots of trouble together! We definitely need to meet and just hang out! We’ll make that happen! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow, that is a lot of colors but you’ve combined them perfectly. Love you shaker card and use of new stamps!

  3. Super cool card Justin! I bet you had fun punching all those stars. OR were they saved from when you cut star borders on other cards? I love shaker cards so you just knew I would love this one. How do you manage to mail them without having them squished? Have a great time tonight, I’m sure you will. Hugs to you my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! I did have fun punching all the stars! I did have some saved, I like to hoard leftovers and it makes me very happy when I get to use them! I use a bubble envelope and a piece of thick cardboard behind the card when I mail them. I had lots of fun at at the party! Hugs to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi Justin! Happy Friday! Had to tear myself away from looking at the new catalog on line…oh my! I want just about everything in there! Maybe I need to buy a lottery ticket today? Such a great card! Love that new stamp set! I never tire of your shaker cards—each one seems to be better than the last one. How that’s even possible, I don’t know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I met some girlfriends last night for our quarterly “meeting” at our favorite wine spot! It was so good to catch up with them. I love a good white…I’m hooked on a nice Gewurztraminer! Hard to say but easy to drink! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a fantastic day!

    1. Hey Karen!
      I am very late with my comments, sometimes the time just flies away! I too am loving the catty! LOL! If you win send some my way will you?!?! I’m glad that you are enjoying the shakers, I have so much fun making them and I love that it makes the card interactive! I am a big Malbec fan currently! I have always been more of a red than white person. I will still have to give the Gewรผrztraminer and try! I had a great Friday and hope that you did too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Good use of the new set Justin. Love a shaker card! Already placed 2 orders, one at 3:05 and the other one around 7:00 (hopefully I win the lottery today or something….LOL) Staying home as our furnace as decided to stop working yesterday!!! and waiting for the repairman! It is cold in here (about 51F but feels so much colder than that). Hiding in my scraproom with a little heater and hot tea. Perfect excuse to try that new set on a challenge don’t you think! Have a great Friday, may it goes quickly so you can get to your party!

    1. Thank you Louise! LOL! Two orders! Did you cave after the first one?! I am sorry to hear about your furnace, not the best time for that to happen! You sound cozy and that sounds like a good place to be! The day was good and the party was great! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Nice job J! I was totally thinking about using this set for the challenge as well! I am totally obsessed with shaker frames myself right now! I might have to make one tomorrow!

    1. Thank you Pam! Shakers are just too much fun! I look forward to seeing your one!! Enjoy the weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Amanda! The set is a cute one, I was a little puzzled as to what I was going to do with it and then I thought, when in doubt make a shaker! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚
