Love & Prayers - CP Designs

Hi everyone!  Today I am excited to share with you some new stamps/dies that will be available in Catherine Pooler's new online store.  The store is set to open on June 25th for StampNation members and the 26th to everyone else.  The store will remain open for 5 days when it will close until it's official opening in August!

Most of the products from the first three Stamp of Approval collections will be available as well as FOUR NEW PRODUCTS!


I have used 3 of the 4 soon-to-be released products.   Wild BloomsAnd stamps, as well as the And dies.

I am absolutely in LOVE with Wild Blooms.  This two step stamp is just stunning.  The two stamps can be stamped and layered together like I did here or you can use them separately.   Don't you just love that Ampersand die?!  It is so perfect.  The And stamps have many different sentiments to mix and match.


Here is a peek of my card for this week's challenge at StampNation where I just used the solid image in the Wild Blooms set.


Make sure you check out Catherine's blog for more cards using these amazing new products and more info on the products that will be available in the store.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Eva's Favorite Flowers & Coordinating Dies---YES, please!!!

Hi everyone!  I am super excited to be able to share one of the new products that will be offered in Catherine Pooler Designs online store!  YES, Catherine is opening her own shop this weekend.  She is going to sell the past stamp and die collections that are part of the previous released Stamp of Approval collections!  Super exciting, right? 

The first Stamp of Approval box, the Friendship collection had an amazing stamp set called In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers.  So many awesome flowers to stamp and layer.  It is one gorgeous set and now that it has coordinating dies, it just makes this set so much more versatile!!  I love stamp sets with matching dies, so many more opportunities to get creative and no FUSSY cutting!  I prefer to not fussy cut, if I can help it.

Supplies used:
Stamps:  In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers (SOA Friendship Collection/Winnie & Walter), Young at Heart (SOA Young at Heart Collection/CAS-ual Fridays)
Ink:  Smoky Slate (SU), Jet Black (Ranger), Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  Whisper White (SU)
Accessories:  Eva's Favorite Flowers cutaways (Winnie & Walter), Tag Buddies (SOA Friendship Collection/CAS-ual Fridays), Black & White Twine (Timeless Twine)

I absolutely love this color combo and went a bit crazy making 3 different cards using these same colors.  :)  I am sharing two today and will share the last one soon. 

Of course, I had to use rainbow colors with black and white.  ;)

Supplies used:
Stamps:  In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers (SOA Friendship Collection/Winnie & Walter),

Sending Sunshine

Hi everyone!  This week's challenge over at StampNation is based on an awesome sunflower image that Heather found.  The challenge was to use the colors in the photo, but I couldn't resist mimicking the photo.

Here is a peek at my card.
