Hi everyone!  The newest Collection from Catherine Pooler Designs, Ex Libris, along with the Apothecary inks, will be available next week!  StampNation members get to order early on April 5th.  General ordering opens on April 6th.

The third bundle is the In the Parlor bundle.

The In the Parlor Bundle includes:

  • Lovebirds Stamps & Dies
  • Twilight Patterned Paper
  • London Sequins
The last bundle is the Extra Libris bundle.

The Extra Libris Bundle includes:

  • Nested Hexagon Dies
  • Stitch Your Diamonds Cover Plate Die
  • Cross Your X's Cover Plate Die
  • Secret Garden Stencil
Here's a card using some of the Extra Libris Bundle.

I used the new ink color Wintergreen & Eucalyptus and created my own colored card stock and die cut the Wintergreen piece using the Cross Your X's Cover Plate Die.  I used the Stitch Your Diamonds Cover Plate Die to die cut the Eucalyptus piece.  I layered them on top of one another and used the frame from the Skyscape Mini Cover Plate Die.  

I embossed my card base with the Cross Your X's cover Plate Die to add more texture.  I stamped and die cut the flourish from the Notable & Quotable Sentiments Stamp set and colored it with Copics.  The sentiment was stamped & white heat embossed on a Sentiment Strip Banner Die.  I added a black and white twine bow to the flourish and that finishes off this card.
