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.
