Catherine Pooler Designs ‘This Christmas’ Release – Adorning Doves Card

Hi all, so for today’s card I am practicing my ink blending. I started with the first ink layer with Pixie Dust ink and slowly worked around the edges with the Catherine Pooler ink blending brushes on white card stock. I made sure to stop and leave some of the bottom card stock panel blank to look like I faded the ink out. For the second layer, I have added Flirty Fuchsia ink to add some depth to the first inked layer. I then stamped the leaves with Sugared almond ink towards the top of the card. For the centre elements of the card I stamped with the adorning doves stamp set. For the dove image, I have stamped with the Flirty Fuchsia ink plus added some ink blending for a little bit of extra colour. The rest of the elements and sentiment I have stamped with Midnight ink. To finish the card off I adhered down some Crater Lake sequins.

It is a fairly simple card and can be easily mass produced. Tell me, do you like making cards that can be easily mass produced or do you like making one off unique cards each and everytime?

Just in case you missed it I have played with the same stampset over on my youtube channel.

Catherine Pooler Designs ‘This Christmas’ Release – Adorning Doves Shaker Card

Can I just say I love love love this release. There is something magical about christmas right? It is my most favourite time of year. I would start setting up now if my family didn’t want me to forget about their birthdays along the way (hehe)

Today, I have played with pinks, I know I know its not traditional Christmas colours, however let me tell you I was exploring with non traditional colours with this release. Between you and me I love doing this most years so by the time I am mass producing with the traditional colours I haven’t felt like I have over done it with the green, red white colours combo. It’s my way to keeping me engaged in my hobby.

So let me get started with my card shall I? I am a big fan of the crater lake sequins. It sits on my desk as a go to. It had been a while since I made a shaker card so I wanted to make something easy, interactive and a little on the pretty side.

To show you my process I have created a youtube tutorial on my process. You actually see how I wasn’t happy with how the card started and by adding the inner layer of the shaker component made my heart sing.

I couldn’t help myself….. I did use my ‘Cocktail Party’ Trios with WOW! Embossing Powder. Amongst using my all tiem favourite Metallic Gold Rich I paired it with my Made You Blush embossing glitter.

My favourite tip when it comes playing with new embossing powders & glitters to make a whole embossed 5 x 7 inch panel. This way I get to see the colour in all its glory. It is then ready for me to die cut or cut down into strips and any other elements. If you haven’t watched me over on my channel yet, you see me show casing this tip frequently. I am all about time saving when it comes to crafting as sometimes all I want to do it colour, focus on stamping or even ink blending. Wht is your favourite crafting hack.

Catherine Pooler | Two Tone Boho Feathers Cards

Hi all, I have made a card set where I have creates heat embossed two tone feathers with the brand new Boho Feathers stampset. For the purple feathers I have used embossing powders from Metalline Violet with Fruit Tingle from my Cocktail Party Trios and for the Teal feathers I have used Oasis and Midori Splice.

I have cut up white cardstock strips of different widths and inked them up with Cummerbund, In the Park, Sparkle berry and Serene inks. I have stuck to the same colour combo with the water colour background panel and sentiments. I have kept the cards simple and finished embellishing with the Crater Lake sequins.

Impressive Heat Embossing AECP | with WOW! Embossing Powder

Hi all, welcome to today’s post where I have played with layering stamps in a different way. With a twist, I have layered the build a flower stamps with embossing powders. I have created a step by step youtube tutorial revealing all my tips and tricks to layering embossing powders. My tutorial show cases my very own Pink-a-licous Trios from WOW! Embossing Powder. I have used an oldie but a goodie layered stampset – Build-a-flower “Camellia.

This is part of my submission as part of the Altenew AECP program. My course I have learnt from today is the Impressive Heat Embossing by Svetlana Marchenko. I have put my own spin on my submission and this course gave me the confidence to think outside the square when it comes to heat embossing. Be sure to grab your MISTI, embossing powders and layering stamps and join me along my tutorial.

Catherine Pooler New Release | Boho Fall Release

Hi all, welcome to the brand new Boho Fall collection. The stampset and dies I will be playing with today is the Boho Feathers. I have to say I absolutely love the feather designs AND accompanying sentiments in this set. For today’s card I have used the resist technique by heat embossing on watercolour cardstock with WOW! Embossing Powder Opaque Bright White. For the watercolour look I have used Catherine Pooler ink refills…. that’s right you read right. Dont be afraid to use your re-inkers as a colouring medium. They are super pigmented and are very vibrant which means these can go a long way.
