Feeling Fall ~ Make it Move with Power Poppy
Happy Friday y'all!!!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I know I am looking forward to it!  I'm also excited to share today's Power Poppy project with ya!  Since it's the first Friday of a new month, there is a new Power and Spark Challenge hosted by are own, dear Ally.  She has challenged us to make it move.  Well, I took on that challenge, and it was exactly that...A CHALLENGE!!  I decided I wanted to make a double slider with a shaker main body.  Okay...that was a bit ambitious.  First of all, I've never even made a slider, let alone a double one.  And then add a shaker on the front?  YIKES!!  This baby took some time.  And, I have to doesn't slide perfectly.  I took the instructions a bit too far.  They warned not to make the plastic band inside too course, I made it too loose.  DOH!!!  But I'm happy with the look of it...even if it doesn't function perfectly.  I know better for next time right?  

I used two Power Poppy stamp sets for this project Feeling Fall and Nice Things to Say  (oh...and I should mention, the shaker part is actually a card and opens up so you can write on the inside of it.)  Here's a link to the tutorial I used to make this: 

Below you can see it with the slide outs.  They are actually supposed to slide out further, but, after gluing everything together, I must have had a malfunction.  Since it's assembled, there is no way for me to figure out what happened.  But, you can still see the sentiments (mostly), so mission accomplished.

I colored the image with Copics, and aged everything with with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink to vintage it up a bit.  I have a few mini velvet pumpkin and these two little guys remind me of them.  Aren't they sweet?

Oh my, Tosh! This is so gorgeous and elegant! It's amazing that it's a shaker card too...they often remind me of fun cards, but this is truly elegant! I love the gorgeous colors you've used, and the frame is amazing with the ribbon and lace at the top. It sure looks fabulous even if it doesn't function the way you want it. It's sure to bring joy to someone special. Stunning, as always, sweet friend! Hugs!
