Catherine Pooler – Jolly Holiday Slimline card

Hi All, I have been absolutely been loving the new Jolly Holiday release and particularly how lovely the Jolly Trees stampset. This stampset has been so versatile and awesome for layering ink colours. For today I have done a quick and simple card of straight stamping with Eucalyptus and Green Tea ink. For the Christmas centre tree I have heat embossed with Metallic Rich Gold embossing powder and die cut out and placed on Cranberry Fizz ink panel and cut closely around to foam mount on.

I place and stamped the trees on the bottom of the slimline panel. Cut a panel of pattern paper and mount on a Cranberry Fizz ink blended panel. Die cut the new Merry Christmas word die three times. Press the top word die into the cranberry ink and adhere all down on the pattern paper strip.

Place the whole card panel on a navy slimline card panel.

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.
