Catherine Pooler Designs Hello Sunshine Release Blog Hop


I LOVE THIS RELEASE!!
It's time for a new release over at Catherine Pooler Designs. Some of my favorite designers and myself are hopping along and sharing our projects that we created using products from the new release.

The Hello Sunshine release is a mix of fun images, papers and sentiments as well as some beautiful flowers and sentiments. The background dies are gorgeous - it's all amazing!

My first card features the Right Angle Cover Plate, I Scream You Scream stamps and dies and the Sum Sum Summertime Patterned Paper.


Instead of using the Right Angle Cover Plate as a die I embossed with it. You do this by making your sandwich for your die cutting machine in this order: die cutting plate, embossing mat, paper, die, embossing plate and then run it through your machine. I used a blender pen to add some fun colors to the ice cream truck and then did some embossing and die cutting for the sentiment.

My next card features the Sunshine Flowers Stamps and Dies and the Throwing Confetti Cover Plate.


I don't know much about flowers at all but I do love sunflowers and couldn't wait to color these beauties in. I added them to the background that I die cut with the Throwing Confetti Cover Plate and added to the card base with craft foam that I also cut from the cover plate. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of card stock cut with a circle die and then added that to the panel and trimmed off the edge.

Now it's time to hop along. Be sure to leave a comment at each stop for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the SHOP.

Father's Day Card



Hi Everyone!
Father's Day is coming - have you made your card yet?
I've got a quick and easy card to share with you today. 
I used Altenew's Best Dad Ever stamps and dies and did simple coloring with my Prismacolor pencil crayons. I cut a little slit in the mug and inserted the razor.
I stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink onto a piece of white cardstock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die and adhered the stamped and colored images directly to the panel. I added a little shadow with a pencil crayon and adhered it all to a grey card base.


I'm playing along with the current Addicted to CAS challenge.

Summer Swirls at The Card Concept

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to another challenge at The Card Concept. This weeks inspiration photo is a hot air balloon and something I've always wanted to try. I think it would be amazing!


My card uses Catherine Pooler Designs stamps, dies and inks. If you've never checked out her products you should because they are excellent. Yes I am on her design team BUT I honestly believe that and would say it even if I wasn't on her team. Especially the inks! They are my go to inks for almost any project. You can learn all bout her inks HERE.  

My card is super simple to make.
I stamped the background with Twilight Ink and The World Awaits Stamp Set.
The balloons are from the Love is in The Air stamp set and stamped with Rockin' RedLimoncello and Something Borrowed ink and then die cut with the Love is in The Air Dies. Next I stamped the basket with Black Jack ink. The baskets are much easier to line up after you die cut out the balloon.
I stamped the sentiment from The World Awaits with Midnight ink and then added all the balloons - some with craft foam for dimension.





I'd love it if you'd come and check out the rest of the design teams cards HERE and if you're feeling the urge to join us it would be awesome to see your cards in the gallery.

Grad Card Crazy

I'm going Grad Card Crazy right now and having a lot of fun doing it.
When you have a lot to make but don't want to mass produce the same card I strongly recommend clean and simple cards. I used minimal supplies and embellishments which helps to make the process go smoothly and quickly.

Besides the supplies listed below I also used Avery Elle's Hats Off stamp set, Taylored Expressions Class Of die and Cherry Cobbler card stock from Stampin' Up.



The googly eyes on this owl I picked up from a dollar store.





All the cards are pretty simple and straight forward but here's a link to another post where I did a card similar to this next one.


If you have any questions on these cards, please message me or leave a comment and I will be glad to answer them for you.

Stamp Out Cancer Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the Scrap'n Stamp hop to Stamp Out Cancer. The team and some guest designers have gotten together to spread the word about how important it is to be a strong advocate for your health and when you know something is wrong keep pushing until you get answers. Your health is too important not to.
In lieu of prizes for this hop, Scrap'n Stamp will be donating 10% from all the sales made this weekend - June 8th and 9th - to Push For Your Tush Fundraising Walk for Colon Cancer Canada in honor of team member Nancy Barnett Elrick. 



You can read more about Nancy's story HERE and if you would like to donate to the Push For Your Tush Fundraising Walk For Colon Cancer Canada you can do that HERE.






I printed a free cancer ribbon image from Joanne Fink from Zenspirations for my card onto some watercolor paper. I love the words inside the ribbon and the message it sends. I stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Blessings 2 from MFT. The written font is beautiful! I did some simple ink smooshing with some distress oxide inks - I think that's my favorite technique onto the panel and onto another piece of watercolor paper. I tore one edge and layered everything together adding a small strip of b&w patterned paper.



I love how quick and easy this card was to make but more importantly I love the message. 

Be sure to check out all the hops to see how everyone was inspired.
