Fancy Friday is Featuring Favorites

For February's Fancy Friday Hop we are all featuring our favorite Occasions Catalog product.  For me this was a tricky one because I have so many favorites.  I will say I have been blown away by the awesome framelits offered in this catalog.  Each set is beautiful, intricate, and offers such versatility. One of the sets that I purchased and have loved is the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.

Like I mentioned the framelits are out of this world AWESOME!  There are pieces to cut stamped flowers and leaves, there's a label die, leaf dies, stitching dies, and a die that coordinates with the Pretty Label Punch from the Annual Catalog.  All that in one set of framelits combines to make an ultra cool super versatile pack.

For my Needle & Thread themed card I tried a less common fold for this card and I think I like it. Actually I know I like this fold.  For this card instead of the card base, which is Night of Navy, opening, the card front panel pulls down to reveal the inside.  This easy fold allows for some fun layering and unveils a little surprise interior decor.

My front opening panel is Whisper White and it's layered on top of a piece of Blueberry Bushel cut with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  I get a kick out of combining colors that are so similar they blend and even clash at the same time.

My ink colors include Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue, and Pear Pizzazz.  A strip of Balmy Blue Gingham Gala DSP was the perfect touch to tie my palette of blues all together.

Next time you are thumbing through the Occasions Catalog take a close look at each of the framelit packs.   You too will see just how clever and brilliant the designers at Stampin' Up! are.

This is all from me for today, but wait there's more fanciness coming your way.  Next up, the most fabulous and adorable Susan Wong.  She is sure to spark your imagination.
