Fancy Friday - For Family Theme

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). This month we are focusing on families, and making cards to celebrate them and their special days and accomplishments. You'll love what you see tonight on our fancy blog hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from my beautiful friend Susan's blog. She's as much fun as her beautiful creations!

I decided to focus today on the furry members of our families. I made a feline card that could be used to welcome a new cat to the family, and I made a sympathy card for the loss of a canine family member. Pets are such an important part of families, and I think it's great to both welcome them and to mark their passing.

Needlepoint Nook Suite

Hello and welcome back! I recently made a birthday card using the Needlepoint Nook Suite, including the stamps, dies and patterned papers. This card was for my Mom, and I love the color palette and how the whole thing turned out! I started with my favorite pattern from the Needlepoint Nook papers, and I used both the multi-color embroidered pattern and the light purple stitched pattern. Next I stamped flowers and leaves in Berry Burst, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather and Old Olive. I also die cut some pieces from Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, as it looked nice with the brighter patterns in the paper also.
