Catherine Pooler Jolly Holiday New Release

Who is excited to get their christmas creations happening? And what is even more exciting is playing with some fun, trendy and fabulous goodies. Catherine Pooler has certainly delivered and brings to you an array of new inks, stamps, dies, stencils, sequins, papers AND a slimline collection of dies and papers!!!

For today’s card I have made a fun shaker card with the new “Caroling Sentiments” stampset. I know it is not a traditional Christmas colour pallet however sometimes I like to go out of the norm and go with colours that I know the recipient would like.

Another detail I like to add is using a a tone on tone heat embossing effect. This time I used the White pearl embossing powder. This adds a subtle effect that is elegant, shimmery and fun all at once.

As something different I have made my own shaker panel with the nested oval dies. It is a fairly simple card but fun to make all the same. Check out my step by step youtube tutorial below.

For my card below I have made my own glitter paste with the Sparkles and embossing paste. For today’s technique I have spread the embossing paste through the stencil, while the stencil is wet I have poured the sparkles over the top and set aside to dry. Once dried I used a dry fluffy dry paint brush to sweep away any excess sparkles. Using embossing paste with the sparkles range is one of my favourite methods.

I have made a tutorial on how I made these two cards below.

–> Ashlee McGregor <— If you get lost along the way here are the lineups for both days! 

For the first card, I made my own glitter texture paste with transparent gloss paste & the Pumpkin Spice sparkles through a coffee stencil. I turned this card into a shaker card wobble version with the coffee cup. Watch how I made this card up on my youtube channel.

For my second inspiration card for today, I have covered a whole panel of white pearl embossing powder. It is hard to see the pearl but it is so shimmery which adds a subtle sparkle. It’s a great way to create your own pearl cardstock. For the sentiment, I have used the Under the sea for the whole shadow part of the card.

Ink Blending and Heat Embossing with WOW! Embossing Powder

Hi all, welcome to today’s card creation.

One of my favourite things to do is have some DIY glitter cardstock on hand for die cutting sentiments.  

TIP: I press my WOW! Embossing Powder Ultra slow drying inkpad directly on white cardstock then pour the embossing glitter over the sticky cardstock and heat set. I have several panels on hand now ready for future cards.

I have played with some Altenew dies and stamps as well as Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Florals 2 stampset. This stampset has such intricate details to it and love that WOW! have superfine embossing powders as options to capture and heat set all the little intricate details of stampsets.

When it comes to enhancing an embossed image I love using a grey copic marker to make the image pop so it come to the forefront and not blend in the background.
