Have you heard the news? Catherine Pooler Designs is releasing 6 new ink colours on Wednesday, 13th October 2021.

These colours are part of the Party Collection and today reveals Flame and Glitz. Flame is a dark orange shade that adds a feeling of warmth, light and a spark of excitement. Glitz is a deep, warm yellow that will bring the golden hues.

If you are new to the Catherine Pooler Designs ink you can click HERE to learn more about them and how they work. 

Some of my favourite things about her inks are how easy it is to stamp with. Catherine Pooler inks delivers solid, crisp images every time with minimal effort. Their inks are also water reactive (as show in the tag below) which is great for ink smooshing ink blending and getting those cool little water splotches look too. 

I have ink blended today card tag with the two colours to show you how well they compliment each other. I have heat embossed a recently released stampset ‘Life is Brew-tiful’ which I have used in a previous blog post.

Now onto my card. I recently purchased this stampset from Catherine Pooler Designs which I was super excited to break out for today. This stampset is called Life is Brew-tiful. I stamped the images with Versafine Onxy Black ink and heat embossed with clear gloss. I used the pigment ink from my Karin Markers and picked it up with an aqua brush.

I then ink blended the tag die cut with Catherine Pooler Polished ink with the Catherine Pooler large ink blending brush with a really light hand in circular motions.

For the card front panel I cut white cardstock up on an angle and ink blended with the Mint to Be ink and adhere down on a white top folding card front.

For the bottom half of the card front I used Kraft cardstock. To add some detail on the card front I heat embossed a strip of white cardstock with the ‘Made you Blush’ embossing glitter from the WOW! Embossing Powder Pink-a-licious Trio.

For the embellishments I have used sequins and teal twine.

Peachy Christmas – Adorning Doves Stampset

For today’s card I have added a little twist to the card front by cutting a small angle off to feature what is inside the card.

I have stamped the foliage with the Clay Mask ink on the left hand side of the card front as well as the dove which I then die cut out and place on the inside of the card. With the same ink I ink blended a panel for the inside card and a die cut circle as elements. Die cut the Round of Merry die 3 times and for the top panel I pressed into the Samba ink. To make it look shiny I added some glossy accents and set aside to dry.

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.
