Catherine Pooler | April Showers Bring Collection Slimline

Hi all, welcome to today’s slimline card creations using the Blooming Wellies and coordinating die along with the A little drizzle slimline pattern paper. The Hearts Trios slimline die is from a previous release and used for the card base. I heat embossed the wellies with WOW! Embossing powder ebony on watercolour cardstock and die cut out. I used my Karin Markers to colour these in and placed on the bottom left of the card front. The sentiment I stamped with Midnight ink in the centre of the middle heart.

For today’s card creation I heat embossed the cute gum boot wellies from the Bloomin’ Wellies Stamp Set and heat set with Ebony embossing powder from WOW! Embossing Powder on white watercolour card stock and coloured the image in with Karin Markers. For the background pattern paper I have used the new A Little Drizzle Slimline Patterned Paper sample which are absolutely a perfect fit and a staple for your slim line cardmaking. I have matched it with the Heart Trios slimline dies from a previous release as I thought the sentiment from the stampset worked in perfectly with the overall card.

Who is excited to see this collection? I love the flexibility and variety the stamps and dies can give of this release. I have used the Under the Umbrella Die with the Pitter Patterns Stamp Set and coordinating Pitter Patterns Dies . I have made a slimline card with an ombre ink blended panel and to make it shine and sparkle I have heat embossed with Halo Embossing Glitter.

I stamped each of the patterns raindrops & sentiment with Suede Shoes ink and die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered down with bearly arts liquid glue. The umbrella die cut was propped up with foam adhesive. To finish the card off I used the Crater Lake Sequins.

AECP Educator Program | With a Twist Card Angel Card

Therese takes your favourite techniques and gives a twist! Get more out of your current products and think of different way to jazz up your paper crafting projects. Get new ideas and bring new purpose to your stamps, dies, and inks!

For my card I recreated the card base style where Therese partially angle card the card front. I love this style as it give such a cool and different look with just your paper trimmer.

The colour pallet I have chosen is a cool, minty collection from the Green Meadows quad ink pack. I stamped the leaves on the white card front and mounted that on a mint top folding card base. I heat embossed the largest of the floral cluster and arranged it so it partially peaked to the side of the card front.

I have created a tutorial on how I made the card.

AECP Educator Program | Beautiful Details

Learn different tips and techniques from Marika Rahtu on adding various details to your project to take it to the next level!

If you are looking for ways to use various mediums on your projects and maybe felt your projects may need a bit more of something? Then this class is perfect for you!

I have learned so much from Marika that I now look at my mediums differently. Even my ordinary black sharpies and pigments pen which I write with, I used for added dotted detail on today’s card.

Ill be honest with you here I had an enormous amount of gelli prints that created with Altenew stencils so I picked this Mega Bloom stencil from my stash that I thought would work great for this card. I placed the stencil back over the gelli print image and traced with my sharpie permanent ultra fine tip pen. I didn’t trace around each and every petal but I chose to trace one side only of each petals. I then added some dotted detail around the other side of the petals.

I also added thin black strips of black card stock on the corners of the card front.

Check out my youtube tutorial up on my channel.

I just couldn’t help myself and made another card this time adding dotted detail on the outer part of the watercoloured image. The below large image is from the ‘Courageous You’ which I heat embossed with WOW! Ebony powder on watercolour cardstock. I coloured the embossed image in with Karin Brush markers and an aqua pentel brush.

In addition to the beautiful details class I also got the idea to trim on an angle the card front as an added detail from the “With a Twist” clasess from Therese Calvird. Theresa’s class takes your favourite techniques and give a twist! She teaches you how to get more out of your current products and think of different way to jazz up your paper crafting projects.

So for this card I added the painted dots washi tape in the inner part of the cardbase so it peaks through the angled cut.
I also have another card for that class on my youtube coming shortly.

Take your favorite techniques and give a twist! Let’s get more out of your current products and think of different way to jazz up your paper crafting projects. Get new ideas and bring new purpose to your stamps, dies, and inks!

Altenew AECP – In the Mood | Orange – Health, Happiness, Courage

Instructor Stephanie Klauck teaches you all about your emotions and how it relates to colours. Feeling happy? excited? or blue? Learn how you can take your mood and apply it to your cards! In this class, you will learn various ways to add colors to your projects depending on your mood.

As part of my Altenew Educator Program I have not only loved learning all about colours but hot is also relates to emotions AND theories. I have learned so much as part of this online classes creative journey. I am so grateful for this opportunity and to the wonderful teachers that have taken the time to implement such credible classes.

Now on to my card creation…..

I kept it rather simple and applied the colour Orange with the Martian Terrain Inks. I added some interest by also heat embossing with clear embossing powder from WOW! Embossing Powder over the whole stamped image. For me, this card really spoke because of the sentiment which I felt related to the colour orange. I have so much gratitude for the crafting friends I have met along my journey and like to encourage them just like they have done for me along the way. My goal is not only to try new techniques as part of these classes but to really create with intent and most cases the recipient in mind.

I have made a youtube tutorial of my card creation for today.

Catherine Pooler | Gelli Prints Blessed Cover Plate

I have recently discovered Gelli Printing and have made lots of prints ready to make something out of them. The prints I have chosen today are more on the simpler side where I have played with straight out acrylic paints and added texture with some old bubble wrap. I got to the point where I had all these prints then asked the question NOW WHAT?!? In my head I wanted to create quick, simple and easy cards that could be mass produced. I chose the Catherine Pooler Peony in Bloom cover die from the “Blessed” release and die cut them in white and black card stock which I have placed on top of the prints. I found this cover die suited the prints so you can get a good peel of the prints still whilst adding a pretty floral element to the card front.

I have created a youtube tutorial on how I made this cardset. The sentiments are from Scrapbook.com – “Heartfelt Friendships

AECP | Polychromatic Cards

Hi all, I am super excited that I am learning so much from the Altenew Educator Program. The most recent course I have completed watching and partaking in is the Polychromatic course hosted by the very talented Nina-Marie Trapini.

Nina runs a thorough program playing with colours! This course will help you build confidence with colours or colour combos. In this class, you will learn how to use multi-colours comfortably! Use tips and tricks from this class to make your projects shine with various colours!  

For my card set today I delved into my card stock stash and chose colours that were close to my Altenew Mini Ink pads I had in my collection.

I used the lighter shades of my inks and repeat stamped the floral image from Kind Matters stampset on a full 5 x 7 ” cardstock panel. Once I have done all my stamping I added some depth to the floral images with copic colours. I used copic colours R85, Y02, YG41, RV42 & B00. All these colours not only matched the ink colours but the cardstock with a slight darker shade to add depth. I cut the full panels down either in half portrait, landscape and diagonals and adhered these down on white side folding card base.

For the sentiments I die cut with white cardstock and pressed the ink pads to turn these into coloured sentiments. I added some sheen to the sentiments by spraying an array of Nuvo sprays that I had in my stash. I had some pre-cut die cut hearts in white and craft cardstock.

I also added some extra sparkle with pre-embossed panels. This is a handy tip that I do for convenience to have glitter cardstock on hand which I do reach for on a regular basis.

For the overall presentation of these cards I place all elements together changing up the designs which all have the panels, glitter cardstock, die cut sentiments and heart die cuts.

To watch my process of what I had learnt from this fabulous class I have created a tutorial up on my youtube channel.

Catherine Pooler dry embossed card

Hi all, today’s card is using the newish Quilter Cover die for the dry embossed technique. If you are new to the dry embossed technique, let me give you the down low on the how to. First of all you need a die cutting machine and of course a cover die (background die). The whole idea of the this technique is to achieve an “impression” type of look rather than using the die in a traditional sense for cutting. I have an electronic cutting machine and the biggest tip I can offer when it comes to the impression part of running the “sandwhich” through the machine is a ‘rubber mat’. Most cutting machines you can purchase a rubber mat that pairs well with your machine.

Sandwhich Key –
1. Cutting platform
2. Rubber Mat
3. Cardstock
4. Cover Die
5. Cardstock Shim
6. 1 x Cutting Plate

Depending on your machine you may need to add a couple of shims. Shims can vary in thickness and I highly recommend using cardstock as shims depending on the depth of impression you would like to achieve. Try and not add too many cardstock shims as to not make it too thick so you don’t cut through the actual cardstock itself.

For my card, I have mounted the dry embossed panel on a white top folding card base. As an added element to my card I have die cut a heart panel with the layered stitched dies with kraft cardstock. I love the kraft cardstock can bring a natural looking element to add to the floral stamp design. The floral stamp design has been heat embossed with WOW! Embossing Powder in Ebony and water coloured in with Catherine Pooler Inks and water colour pencils.

To finish the card off I added some crater lake clear sequins to embellish the card.

CASE Your Fellow AECP Crafter Hop

Hi all, today I am playing part of a special blog hop with a fabulous group of very talented crafters from the Altenew Educator Certification Program. This group has a special place in my heart as I embark on my crafting journey to find my authentic style. For something different we are all playing along and have been matched up to crafters to CASE each other. CASE means Copy And Share Everything
but it can be interpreted in many ways. I am very lucky to have been given the talented Yasmine Magdy Sadek. I chose the below picture of hers to CASE

I am the last person in the hop so just in case you have missed it I have link back to the top of the hop list where it all started thanks to the amazing coordiantor of this hop Natasha Davies. https://youtu.be/O1WQDqugvME

My stampset of choice today is from the Kindness Reminders. I really enjoyed watercolour this image in. I have been practicing using a ‘new to me’ which are the product the Watercolour Brush Markers. Can I just say WOWzers these babies are PIGMENTED. Not even joking. To practice my control of distributing the ink I had 2 clean water aqua brushes handy as well as a microfibre cloth (paper towel is another option). I have created a youtube of my cardmaking process on today’s card.

Best Things in Life Floral Set

The For Your Crew Collection consists of four bundles of products (available for purchase separately, but they coordinate perfectly for fabulous hand made creations!) that each speak to a different type of friend or family member in your life.You’ll find just the “just right” stamps and sentiments for everyone you make cards for!From your Party Crew to your Posh Crew and even your Hip and Preppy Crew, these stamps, dies and accessories cover it all from the classy to belly laugh friends.

Today, I have used the The Best Things in Life stampset from the Posh Crew release. Its such a beautiful floral image and love that it comes with coordinating dies.

I heat embossed the floral images on ranger watercolour cardstock with WOW! Embossing Powder ebony powder. I coloured the images in with both the ink pads and altenew brush markers. Once the watercolour images are dried completely I added some extra dotted detail then die cut the images with coordinating dies.

For the Ink blended panels I very lightly inked up diagonal edges up with the new CP Date Night Inks Puckered Up, In the Park, Catching Rays and Chiffon inks.

I mounted the images on an older die set “Merry Labels”. I love that these labels have an embossed feature around the edges. For the sentiment I used the “One Liners” stampset. I have to say this has been a staple in my collection.

Catherine Pooler Designs | Date Night Inks

Catherine Pooler Designs have launched a brand new ink collection that is just absolutely beautiful. This collection is called “Date Night” all the names of the inks have a special meaning that is related to the collections name.

For the first card, I have blended Pucker Up, Serenade & Drive In with ink blending tools. My tip when it comes to ink blending is not only using good blending tools that suit your you and your blending style but to practice ink blending to master working with a light touch and working your your way to add pressure to increase colour depth and intensity. PLUS it also helps having amazing inks to blend with 😜 Oh it also helps to have smooth cardstock like the Catherine Pooler white cardstock. Never forget about the cardstock!

I have die cut the Savannah Cover plate die which I then mounted on the ink blended panel. The panel is a perfect design to show case the ink blended panels to peek through. I have also stamped the Happy Butterflies with the Drive In ink then heat embossed with the NEW Halo Embossing Glitter. Can I just say MY MY MY this clear iridescent embossing glitter is absolutely beautiful.

I wanted to show case in my cards how well not only do these inks blend but how well they actually go together as well. I have created 2 cards with the below card I have used Chiffon, Catching Rays and DO-SI-DO inks. I have heat embossed with Gold Rich embossing powder for the butterfly on vellum.

Both sentiments have been heat embossed on the left over panels of the ink blended panel with Opaque Bright White embossing powder. My tip for heat embossing sentiments is to use a super fine version of the powder to capture the fine details of any sentiments or stamped images.

I hope you enjoy today’s card creation. Now also over on my instagram CPD is giving away 8 $25 Gift Cards this week- one for each new color!  https://www.instagram.com/joherbert/

*NEW* | Catherine Pooler Date Night Inks

Today, I have created a new card with the brand new Catherine Pooler Date night ink collection. I have used all the inks from the collection to create today’s card. I just couldn’t help myself and use all of them all at once. The colours are so complimentary to each other that I was able to create so many cards just with this collection.

I have created a youtube tutorial of my card making process and included some of my favourite older products .

Altenew · Water Colouring · Wow Embossing

Altenew Educator program | Creative Watercolour media card

Hello and welcome to my blogpost. As part of my Altenew Certification Program I have enrolled, I took the Creative Watercolour Media class by Jennifer Rzasa & Co. I played with the Watercolour 36 pan set which I have had in my stash and had a great excuse to play with it again. To ease into the class I started off with florals that I could colour in one petal at a time. As I am not particularly good at keeping my colouring in the lines I chose to heat emboss the image.

I first heat embossed both floral images with Ebony embossing powder and watercoloured in using the pan set. My biggest tip that I have learnt is have clean water and a clean brush handy. I love having two brushes to work with, 1 brush to pick up the pigment paint up and 1 to help distribute the paint throughout each petal. I have created a tutorial up on my youtube channel of my creative process.

There is a lot to learn when it comes to watercolouring and bot oh boy I am loving this class. I am yet to complete it but I just could help but pick up a brush and start colouring. I have to say the watercolour bug has bit me hard 😃

The colour inspiration was from the January monthly card challange.

A Touch of Winter for January’s 2021 Inspiration Challenge

In my card I also showcase a cool pearl embossing powder that changes colour when it is heat set.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a lovely day!

Catherine Pooler Designs | Heart Trio Slimline Die

Hi all, welcome to today’s card design where I am using the new Heart Trio slimline die from the latest Love N Hearts release.

There are some super cute and fun collections in this release. See some pictures below.

I have used some scrap pieces of cardstock and adhered them down on an angle behind the 1st layer of the heart trio die cut. With the In the Park ink I blended with a blending brush just around the edges and adhere down with liquid adhesive directly to the slim line card base. For the top layer I foam mounted it over the top.

I stamped with the Versafine Onyx black ink the smallest floral image from the Grace in Bloom stampset and coordinating dies. I used my Dove blender pen to pick up the Do-Si-Do ink, In the Park, Chiffon ink to colour in the floral images.

Stamp the sentiments on a strip of white cardstock with versafine onyx black ink and adhere down.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card creation with the New Release items.

Altenew

Altenew Certification Program – Layering Stamps

Hi All, welcome to my very first blog post as a participant of the the Altenew Certification Program.


A little about why I joined the program….. first of all for those that know me well I like to be behind the scenes when it comes to creating. This may shock some of you but I have a lot of fears about my crafting abilities. I love crafting but I have a OCD personality when it comes to presenting my final crafting pieces. What I want to achieve with this course is to push myself with techniques, styling and especially my confidence for 2021.

So here it goes my first post…
This post is all about stamp layering. Altenew offer a great range of layering stamps (which I had already purchased but used sparingly). Having said that I was always not confident in not aligning these stamps correctly ….even though they provided samples and images on what to look out for as far positioning goes, I still felt like I was doubtful in my capabilities in getting it right the first time. Once I took that negative chatter out of my thinking I was able to create more with ease and pleasure. It took me until my second creation to enjoy the process.

What I do recommend from what I learnt in the Layering courses, is using a stamp positioner like the MISTI or following Nicole’s informational step by step instructions. If you want to master all things layering she is the Queen!

Class Link – HERE

Have all of these wonderful layering stamp sets, but not sure how to use them? Do you want to be more creative with those layers and make something amazing? In this class, you will learn how to use Altenew’s layering stamp sets and line those images up easily and perfectly! You will also learn different ways to utilize the stamps to create wonderful cards in no time.

Our leading instructor Nicole Picadura will walk you through in detailed videos so you can tackle those layering stamp sets with a snap of a finger! Also, each lesson will share different ideas to create projects using stamp sets.

Instructor: Nicole Picadura


Here is my first ever card, practicing my layering process. Let me be honest I started in going in very strong as I was over enthusiastic, wanted to share everything I learnt, stamp everything out perfectly and over embellish. What I learnt from my first card is that clean and simple is best, enjoy the process and bring it back to basics. The stamps itself add quite a punch and there is no need to over do it. Also another thing I learn shake up your glitter brushes well and don’t squeeze while adding the detail to dye inks and not add a big fat blob in the centre of the flowers.

My stampset of choice for today’s card I have used Fabulous Florets this stampset is what I would class has medium size images which made for good practice. I have to say the MISTI came in handy for not only the stamping and placement but for also my mini ink pads. As this image has a solid image which is is bigger than my mini ink pad the impression on pressing my mini ink pad to the image can sometimes leave the size of the ink pad marks. To remedy this I press and twist/swipe ever so slightly and stamp and repeat the process at least a couple of times to get a good coverage and overall stamped solid image. I then go ahead and stamp and align the rest of the floral image and hand cut out. There are matching dies available for this floral stampset however I did not have them on hand so I proceeded to hand cut them all out. This included the leaves as well.

The front card base has been dry embossed with the Angled Mosaic 3D folder and adhere down with liquid adhesive to allow for wiggle room. The reason why I chose a 3D embossing folder is to add a subtle white on white texture.

For the sentiment, I have used the Birthday Builder sentiments which I have stamped in Desert Night ink on a half inch strip white cardstock which I have foam mounted on to give it dimension. To finish the card off I have used clear sequins and adhered these down. I have to be honest here I am still working on the placement of sequins on my card creations. Sometimes there are days where I feel like a nailed it and there are some I know I over did it. Do you have the same issue?

For the next card I know what I need to work on. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to show casing what I learn next.


Till next week,
Jo

Beautiful New Year! Catherine Pooler New Release

Written Tutorial

For today’s card design I went for a more bold design. I used black and white card stock layers, ink and embossing powder. I wanted the colouring to stand out against the black and white which I think I achieved?

I heat embossed the Beautiful Day floral image with WOW! Embossing Powder Ebony in superfine detail to capture the design. I watercoloured the image in with inks and Watercolour makers.

For the sentiment I die cut black and white card stock with the Wishes dies and for the add on sentiment I stamped with the coordinating All round wishes stampset.

To finish the card off I used the crater lake sequins. If you didn’t already know I use these sequins alot for card creations as they have the sequins with and with the hole in centre of them.

This is all part of the new BEAUTIFUL NEW YEAR collection.

Beautiful New Year! Catherine Pooler New Release

Hi Everyone and welcome to another fabulous New Release from Catherine Pooler Designs.

BEAUTIFUL NEW YEAR is a must see…. Available December 9th!!
For todays card, I played with a slimline card base. I have tried something new where I place my own touch by hand drawing onto my card creation. I am still getting use to the larger longer real estate space of a slimline card layout.
The floral arrangement is from the Beautiful Day stampset which also comes with a coordinating die.

Written Tutorial –

I have been loving this gorgeous floral Beautiful Day stampset so much. I have heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder on watercolour cardstock. To colour these in I have used watercolour makers from Uniquely Creative and an aqua pentel brush to help with the blending and watercolouring. As this stampset comes with coordinating dies I have die cut this out and foam adhere down on an already ink blended panel.

I have previously shared a youtube tutorial on how I ink blend panels and add depth with Black Jack Ink. For todays card I heat embossed the sentiment over the top of the panel with Opaque Bright White. I finished the card off with Crater Lake sequins.

Just in case you missed it….. youtube tutorial below

Hi Everyone and welcome to another fabulous New Release from Catherine Pooler Designs.

For todays card, I played with a slimline card base. I have tried something new where I place my own touch by hand drawing onto my card creation. I am still getting use to the larger longer real estate space of a slimline card layout.
The floral arrangement is from the Beautiful Day stampset which also comes with a coordinating die.

Written Tutorial –


I have heat embossed the floral arrangement with the new WOW! Embossing Powder Judith’s Blush on watercolour cardstock. I used the an aqua brush to pick up colour from the ink pad lids and coloured away. Even though the Catherine Pooler Inks are dye inks as I have used watercolour cardstock it gave me the wiggle room colouring time to blend. I added some extra detail with Zig Markers over the top of the image. This was place with foam adhesive towards the top centre.

To fill in the space towards the bottom I have used the new Sincere Thanks stampset and stamped it three times in different ink colours.

I felt like the space was a bit too sparse and needed some ooompf (you know what I mean right?). To remedy this I used my Copic Multi liner to free hand draw the lines and add some dotted detail in the corners. I finished the card off with crater lake sequins and thats it.

Tell me have you done any hand drawings on your paper craft creations? Also what was your favourite set from the new release? I have more more projects to share with you over the next couple of days.

Thanks for stopping by and I am looking forward to reading your comments.

Catherine Pooler New Release | One Plus One | His and Hers Stampset

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by and visiting me today. Today I am show-casing a couple of cards from the new Catherine Pooler “One Plus One” release. The stampset used is the brand new “His & Hers” Stampset along with the new Polka Dot cover plate background die.

The above card I created a panel where I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW! Embossing Powder Metallic Rich Gold Powder on white cardstock. I stamped both images in Rouge & Midnight Inks and to finish the panel off I matted it on black cardstock.

I kept the rest of the card rather simple adhering down a die cut polka dot piece on a side folding card base.

For the above card I created my own background by alternate stamping both glasses with Rouge and Aquatini Inks on white cardstock which I have mounted on a black mat panel.
I have stamped the sentiment with Midnight Ink on a square piece of white cardstock and matted on black cardstock. To finish the card off I added a heart shaped die cut from kraft.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card creation.

Papercrafters Unite Against Racism Blog Hop

Hi all, thank you for stopping by. I feel very honored to be very part of this very special hop. The goal of this hop is to come together to stand behind our crafty sisters and brothers of colour not just in the art industry, but also to show our support in the never-ending fight for equality all over the world.

All details of this hop and the line up of sponsors are up on Justine Hovey’s Blog .

As this is a hop don’t forget to visit your next hopper – Nandini Karmarkar.

For my first two card creations I bought digital stamps from Angie Bloom Digital Designs and Graciellie Designs to support small business that convey important messages with gorgeous designs. I felt both companies offered an array of images and sentiments that were fitting for today’s hop.

The first two cards I have incorporated an array of ink blended panels with Catherine Pooler inks and sprinkles of WOW! Embossing Powder Ultra High powders.

To see how have created these cards you can watch my tutorial up on my youtube channel.

The next card below has been inspired from my home country Australia where I reside. I first want to start of by acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the lands on which I reside today and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

I have carefully chosen the stamps from Hero Arts as the images reminded of the indigenous illustrations from the local Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders people here in Australia. The tones are a reflection of the earth as the indigenous use the land of natural tones, colours and earth materials to make their colours with.

WOW! Embossing Powder Blog

Now onto my card creations. Today, I have made 3 cards using a variation of WOW! Embossing Powder products – Sparkles, Embossing Glitters and straight-up super fine powders.  I have used the same stampset from Gerda Steiner Designs – Carol Puppies Stampset and watercoloured them in with the Altenew paint pan pallet.

I first stamped the images using my MISTI with Versafine Onyx black ink which I then watercoloured the images in. I set aside to dry then I restamped the image over the top of the watercolour images to get a good crisp black image over the top.

Card 1 - Jo

For the first card I used Coconut Ice embossing glitter on the die-cut diagonal frame by pressing the clear ultra slow drying ink direct on the diecut. It is hard to capture the embossing glitter in a photo but it really makes for a fabulous die glitter cardstock panel. The sentiment has been heat embossed with Angel Eyes from the Ferryman Trios set.

card 1a - Jocard 2 - Jo

Second card  I have heat embossed a scalloped circle die cut with Salsa embossing glitter. I have also roughly swiped  the pennant edge with ultra slow drying ink and poured neptune embossing glitter. Card 2a - Jo

For the last card I have used the Flamingo Sparkles and created my own paste with Texture Gloss paste. Using a plastic spatula I have mixed the sparkles and texture paste and spread it like butter over a poinsettia stencil. Card 3 - Jo

I hope you enjoyed today’s card creations for the hop.

Holiday Blog Hop with Catherine Pooler & WOW! Embossing Powder

I have to say I have been having a ball playing with the Catherine Pooler Holidays release.
Today I am playing with the Angel Wings die and Merry Christmas Angel stampset in my first card set.

Now becuase today is a hop you most likely have come from Catherine Pooler Desgns Blog your next hop is to the very talented Daniel West.
I have a full list of the line up towards the end of my blog post for you all just in case you get lost in the hop.

Did I mention there are PRIZES for this collaborative hop?
Both Catherine Pooler Designs & WOW! Embossing Powder are each giving away a $25 gift card to their stores just by you leaving a comment on each of the designers blog posts. Each comment gets an entry to the hop so comment away so us some crafty kindness as we are super excited to read your comments along the way.

For the Angel wings dies card I have done some really light ink blending with some distress oxide inks.
The card on the left I have used Black soot and Hickory Smoke oxide inks and the card on the right I have used Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar. The key to get a smooth inkblending I have used the make up blending brushes. To get the glittery wings I have used Iced Silver & Aladdin Embossing Glitter.

These trio of cards I have masked the labels dies with some purple tape and heat embossed in selected sections. I found doing this technique really show cases the new Catherine Pooler Bundle Up Trios embossing powder really well. There is such a fabulous array of sparkly texture .
The above card I have used the Sage Embossing Glitter & below I have used Peppermint Scrub from the Bundle Up Trios – Inspired by Catherine Pooler.
Christmas Cards
Lastly but not the least the above card I used the Skylight Embossing Glitter.
I hope you enjoyed today’s blog collaboration and please visit each of the Designers blogs.
