Hi there! Did you know that each of the new releases from Fancy Pants now has its very own collection of co-ordinating stamps?
Today, I'm going to share with you two projects that I have created using a couple of the wonderful new stamps from the Childish Things collection.
My first project is a peg board/note board which I created for my 5 year old goddaughter (aka as my Lil Princess). Like all little (and big) girls out there she loves anything and everything to do with Princesses, so I couldn't resist using the sweet little Princess stamp on my project.
I covered three clothes pegs with strips of patterned paper before adding a paper rosette to each.
To complete each peg, I added a stamped Princess which had been clothed with dresses cut from scraps of patterned paper. I had initially thought that I might create fridge magnets by adding magnetic strips to the reverse of the pegs—however sitting on my workbench was a piece of thick chipboard and I soon found myself using it to take my idea one step further!
The chipboard piece was covered with patterned papers from the Childish Things collection. Before attaching the finished pegs, I popped two brads through from the reverse side of the board and threaded them with twine to create a hanging mechanism. The pegs were then secured to the board using a hot glue gun.
The lower half of the board is home to a file folder which creates a special place for my god-daughter to safely store notes and keepsakes.
With a BMX mad teenager in my house I just knew I had to use the bike stamp on my second project. (My son has his eye on the stamp, but I have hidden it safely from his grasp as I know its a stamp which I will use many times over!!)
Using Stazon, I stamped the image onto a piece of cardstock and when dry used Stickles to outline parts of the image.
I wanted my stamped image to tie in with the Glitter Cuts accent which had been layered beneath the cut Filter Paper pieces.
Don't forget to drop by the Fancy Pants Face Book page and share your Fancy Pants stamped projects with us—we'd love to see them.
