I am so excited to be able to share with you our second round of a new monthly hop! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format. We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus. The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy! Over the last year “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors. Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month. This month we have a sketch that I designed for the team. And you know what? You can join in too! Just use our sketch and post a comment with your link on any of the Fancy Friday team’s blogs. And you can click our logo above to get to the Fancy Friday Pinterest page!
I wanted to focus on this beautiful hostess stamp set, Bloom with Hope, and thought the “out of the box” technique with a framelit would be perfect for the sketch. How did I take the image out of the box? Well, I have created a little video to show you!

Once I had my image panel created, I used my Stampin’ Distress Tool on the edges and sponged them with Crumb Cake ink. Under the Tree Specialty DSP is a perfect match for this image and I used two different prints. The Garden Green print is so cool for the background. Then I took a piece of the diamond Cherry Cobbler print that was cut with my Large Scallop Framelit and paired it with some Venetian Crochet Trim to create the sketch layers. I popped the image up on Dimensionals and added this great sentiment. Know which set it is from? It is a sentiment set called Good Greetings. Truthfully it should be called “Awesome Greetings” because it is really, well, awesome! This set is a hostess exclusive for hosting a $300 workshop and you can earn it now! Let me know if you need more details. I stamped in Momento Black ink (just like the image) and then distressed and sponged it too. I anchored it with a Gold Basic Button tied Linen Thread. The card base is Kraft Card Stock, which is my new obsession!
And congratulations to Lauren! She is the winner of the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from last month’s giveaway!
