#fancyfridaytopfivepicks | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

We have an exciting hop for you this month where we are showing you our favourite new products in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog released at the beginning of this month.
I can honestly tell you that while I have a NUMBER ONE, there were too many of my favourites to list. So, I kept it simple for you.  I included a stamp set, a big shot item and some embellishments! While the Stitched Shapes are not brand new, its the first time they are in a catalog so I made up my own rules on that one.

What's my number one must have item in the new catalog? Hands down. The sequins. They are special because of the shine on them and the variety of sizes.  They were exactly what I was looking for when I simply couldn't find them.

With that said, some items that I use regularly are pearls, doilies, and the fine tip glue pen... whisper white paper... aqua painters... Stampin' Write markers... the list goes on!

Today's card uses all of my top five items.  The black shimmer ribbon matches perfectly with the gold glimmer paper as it seems to have drops of gold in it.  Add the gold, white, silver and black sequins creates a deadly combination.  As always, I need some white... and to my surprise I didn't use white on the card front so as to soften the sharp-ness of the black and white.  The pine plank embossing folder is a must have item in your craft stash!

Thanks for dropping by but before you go make sure to check out the inside of the card so that you can truly see why I love the Magical Mermaid stamp set.  I adore the font pairings of this set.  Its the full package as I can colour the mermaid (it's coming soon!) too!

I honestly can't wait to see what my fancy fridays have in their top five.  I'd love to hear what your top five is - just use the hashtag #fancyfridaytopfivepicks in your social media so we can check them out!  In the mean time, you'll have to see what my amazing friend Cindy has on her top five list!
