Catherine Pooler & Colorado Craft Company Blog Hop

Hi all, welcome to today’s blog hop where two fabulous design teams have created some wonderful inspiration for you all.

As part of the collaboration, we are using two new stampsets from Colorado Craft Company as well as the Catherine Pooler Paradise Found Ink collection. Both companies have up for grabs a $30 gift cards for the Catherine Pooler Store and Colorado Craft Company store. All you need to do comment on each of the designer’s blogs by the 31st August 2020 and the winners will be announced over on the Catherine Pooler Designs & Colorado Craft Company blogs.

Now as this is a hop your next stop is —–> Adrienne Kennedy.

For the first card I created an inked background & sentiment panel with the Royal Treatment ink. I heat embossed the wand from the new Big & Bold Ruby Slippers with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder. The sentiment panel I have heat embossed with Opaque Bright White

For the background of the stars I have used the Star stencil, Tacky when Dry gel medium and Glitter gold FABfoil from embossing powder. I have used the DOVD blender pen to colour in the heat embossed wand with Sauna and Royal Treatment ink.

I loved playing with the Paradise Found inks and for the second cards ink blended panel I have used Sauna and Mandarine Spice. I stamped the ruby shoes with WOW! Embossing ultra slow drying ink and heat embossed with Ebony embossing powder. I then coloured in with the dove blender pen with Peppermint Scrub ink. To get the glittery shoe effect I added wanderlust embossing glitter which I heat set. I fussy cut the shoes out and adhere down on the ink blended panel.

To finish the card off I heat embossed the sentiment with Opaque Bright white embossing powder on black cardstock.

  3. Jo, I absolutely adore all your ruby red slippers cards. The slippers stamp set have stolen my heart and your cards are super inspiring. Have a lovely weekend!


  4. Great cards! I particularly like the first one with the wand & all the glittery look. I also like the way you framed the CCC Season Girl Autumn stamp & then leaf design in the background.


    1. The Purple and Gold coordinate so nicely together!
      I like all of them! The last card with the stenciled background is gorgeous!
      Thanks for sharing.


  5. The sparkle on the shoes! Oh my! The stars are perfect for the wand-I’ll have to figure out how to do that!


  6. Beautiful! The colors are so warm! Now I misread the order of description to picture and at first thought you fussy cut the shoes with the red outline and I thought holy moly WOW and wow!! I liked that card very very much, but to fussy cut the entire outline hmmmmm not for me. Tee hee beautiful work!!


  7. Awesome cards! Love the quote from Glinda the Good Witch! Beautiful background and coloring on your lovely autumn scene card!
