Wild & Wonderful Release Blog Hop - Day 1


Hi everyone and welcome to Day 1 of the Wild & Wonderful release blog hops for Catherine Pooler Designs.  There will be 3 days of blog hops where the Creative Team will be sharing inspiration using the new products.

There are not only stamps/dies that are new, but two NEW INK COLORS too!

My first card features the Kaleidoscope background stamp and the Note of Thanks stamp set.


I stamped the background in Midnight ink, let it dry for a bit before blending the colors.  I blended Party Dress, Limoncello and Fiesta Blue.  I love that only using three colors gives me 5 colors on my card.  I trimmed a piece of card stock at an angle and attached it to the background stamped and blended panel to create the angle.


The thanks stamp was white heat embossed onto a piece of black card stock and then cut out using a circle die.  I popped that up onto the panel and added some black and white twine.

My next card shows off the new Grape Crush ink pad color.


All of my stamping was done using the new ink color.  Wouldn't this make a great gift set for somebody?  Doing a bunch of these in different colors and packaging them all together?  


I added rhinestones and backed the sentiment strip with some vellum card stock for a bit of interest.
