Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the "Kind of Batty" release blog hops for Catherine Pooler Designs. Today new stamps, dies and ink hit the shop. The Creative Team will be sharing projects to introduce you to the new items over the next few days. You can see all of the new products HERE!
This release is actually two releases rolled into one. Some products are under the "Kind of Wonderful" release and some Halloween products are under the "Going Batty" release.
Together they are the "Kind of Batty" release!
My cards feature the products from the "Kind of Wonderful" release.
Look how amazing that layered leaf looks with Catherine's inks!!! Stunning, right?!!! I started by stamping the leaf using all the layers and die cutting it with the coordinating die. I then used just one of the layers to stamp the row of leaves using the yellows/oranges I used on the die cut leaf.
I popped up the die cut leaf onto one of the solid stamped leaves and then stamped the sentiment using Midnight ink and added some strips of black card stock to the bottom and some black and white twine to the top and my card is done.
My next card features these amazing products:
I started my card by stamping and white heat embossing the kind from the Kind of Wonderful stamp set. I then sponged Lime Rickey and Aquatini ink over top. After getting a good blend, I used a paper towel to wipe off the excess ink from the white embossing. This step really makes the white embossing pop.
I then die cut it using the coordinating die cut. I also die cut the layer behind from black card stock. I love this look! I glued this onto my white card stock and stamped the coordinating sentiment above using Midnight ink.
The stripes on the bottom are from the new Angled Squares Background stamp. I stamped it onto a piece of white card stock using Midnight ink and instead of using the whole piece, I trimmed part of it off and used it on the bottom of my card. Some black and white twine finishes off my card.
