BIG COMFY CHAIR



I would LOVE to have a big comfy overstuffed patterned chair to curl up in with some chai and watch the sun come up. The His and Hers Stamps and Dies along with the A Tisket A Tasket Patterned Paper collection are perfect for making some for my cards. 



This was a super quick and easy card to make. It's also one you could 'take up a notch' if you wanted to as well. Hmmm did I just challenge myself? Maybe I did lol.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BESTIE


I've got another slim line card for you today and this one was the easiest one yet. I used the stack of gifts from the Yay Gifts Stamp Set which is perfect for slim lime cards.


 I stamped the gifts and the sentiments with Midnight ink. I used Prismacolor pencils to color in all the gifts and to add some shadow at the base of the gifts. I added some striped paper from the Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper pack - I had to piece it together so as to have it long enough but it't not that noticeable. I adhered the panel to a card base with craft foam.

FLOATING HEARTS


I finally took the plunge and made a slim line card and I'm hooked! 
I used the Stitched Hearts Dies and the His and Hers Stamp Set from the Tie the Know Bundle which is one of the four bundles that make up the One Plus One Collection that hit the shop yesterday.


The card base is 7 x 8 1/2" and scored at 3 1/2" on the 7" side. This gives you a card front that is 3 1/2 x 8 1/2". The card panel is 3 1/4 x 8 1/4"


I used two of the hearts dies and cut hearts from a piece of computer paper to make heart stencils. I used the stencils and some blending tools to make some floating hearts. I die cut two hearts from one of the patterned papers in the A Tisket A Tasket paper pack and blended a little Limoncello ink around the edges.


The sentiment and the small heart is from the His and Hers Stamp Set and the striped paper is from the Black Tie Gala paper pack. I added it to the card base with craft foam for dimension.
Time to make another slime line card.

I'm playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge

ONE PLUS ONE RELEASE DAY


Today's the day!
Catherine Pooler Designs newest collection - ONE PLUS ONE is in the shop at 9am EST! I've had so much fun playing with the products in this collection and have two cards to share with you today.


I absolutely LOVE these chairs from the His and Hers Stamp set and the coordinating dies. They're perfect for so many themes such as anniversaries, retirement, fathers day or mothers day and more. I paired them with a sentiment from the Happy Place Stamp Set to make a card for someone who just bought a new home.


My next card is a simple shaker card. The Good Things Mini Cover Plate Die is perfect for making a frame for the shaker. 


I cut the frame from black card stock, placed it on a piece of paper from the A Tisket A Tasket Patterned Paper pack and then stamped the sentiment inside the frame. I adhered a window sheet to the back of the frame and then added adhesive foam strips. I piled on some Crater Lake Sequins, adhered the window to the patterned paper and then adhered that to a white card base. Simple and easy to make and super fun to play with.


I've linked to the items I used below as well as all the bundles that are available - the bundles offer a discount which is great too.
If you do shop through my links - THANK YOU! I so very much appreciate it and you.

MR. & MRS.


If you're like me sometimes, okay lots of times I leave things to the last minute. It's something I've wanted to change about myself for a long time but I've finally accepted the fact that I'll probably always be a last minute Suzie. Good thing I like clean and simple cards - they are perfect for when you need a card quickly. Not that you would forget to make a card for a wedding but I would lol.
The His and Hers Stamp set and the His and Hers Dies are great for all styles of card making but they are great for clean and simple!


All the products in the ONE PLUS ONE collection that hit the shop 

(that's tomorrow people!) are great for weddings, anniversaries, babies - all the momentous occasions that we all love to celebrate. AND they are great for any style of card making.



I stamped the grooms shoes and the sentiment in Midnight ink and the brides shoes in Twilight ink. The hearts are stamped in Rockin' Red in. The shoes and the hearts are cut out with the coordinating dies. I popped the shoes up with some foam tape for dimension. 


I'm playing along with the AAA challenge of Maxi White Space

WISHING YOU GOOD THINGS


There's nothing like a good sentiment to make a card and the Be The Good Sentiment Stamp Set is perfect for that. Paired with a simple background and you've got yourself a quick and easy but awesome card!


The One Plus One collection hits the shop July 22nd BUT if you're a StampNation member then you get to shop early - July 20th! How cool is that!

I used Sugared Lavender, Pink Champagne and Seafoam to do some ink smooshing on some water color paper. Once it was dry I cut a panel using the large stitched rectangle from the Postage Stamp Dies. I added it to a white card base with craft foam after stamping the sentiment with Midnight ink.

GOOD THINGS AHEAD


Have you heard?
There's a new release coming to a store near you soon!
Catherine Pooler Designs has a new collection that'll be available July 22nd. This collection is called One Plus One and has everything you need for anniversaries, weddings and babies.


 I recently retired and my husband should be joining me in retirement in the next few months, plus our 29th anniversary is next month so now I have my cards ready for him.

I used the following new products on my cards:
- Good Things Mini Cover Plate Dies
- Be The Good Sentiments Stamp Set
- His and Hers Stamp Set
- His and Hers Dies
- Nested Stitched Heart Dies
- A Tisket A Tasket Patterned Paper 


I used the Canvas Grunge Background Stamp to add some texture to the card. I embossed it with WOW white embossing powder and layered everything on to that. I like the subtle texture it adds.




I used the Rocks-Ann Background Stamps and some white embossing powder to add some texture to my next card.



I used Rockin' Red ink to make some colored card stock and then die cut the big comfy chair. I uses an ink blending tool to add more Rockin' Red ink around the edges for some shading. I'm wishing now that I made a chair using Limoncello ink - I'll do that for another card. I used Sand Castle and Over Coffee inks to blend on the GOOD and layered them onto some white letters.


The One Plus One collection hits the shop July 22nd BUT if you're a StampNation member then you get to shop early - July 20th! How cool is that!

ONE PLUS ONE = AWESOME!


Weddings, Anniversaries, babies... 
Catherine Pooler Designs newest collection called One Plus One has you covered for some very memorable milestones.

I've got two cards to share with you today. I shared a sneak of the first one the other day. 


I wanted to make a couple of anniversary cards that were more on the masculine side and the products in this release are perfect for that. 
I paired the Nested Stitched Heart Dies with the His and Hers Stamps and Dies. The black gingham paper in the A Tisket A Tasket Paper pack is perfect to add a fun but masculine touch to the cards.

POPPIN' PATTERNS AND COMING SOON



The Poppin' Patterned Paper is perfect for party balloons. All the patterns are so fun and work beautifully together for a festive look. Pair it with the Happy Birthday Many Ways stamp set, the Yay Gifts stamps and dies and you are set for birthday cards.
This card is perfect for mass producing. I stamped the balloons onto 6 of the patterned papers and cut out each balloon - yes that does take a bit of time but not much. Next I stamped the balloons again onto white card stock panels and then paper pieced the cut out patterns onto the white panels. I stamped the strings then cut the panel with the stitched rectangle die from the Postage Stamp Dies and then stamped the sentiment into the bottom corner.
I layered it onto another piece of patterned paper from the same pack and then onto a card base cutting off the pieces hanging over the edges.


Catherine is revealing the bundles from the new One Plus One collection all week. Have you been watching? She revealed the Tie The Knot Bundle yesterday - it's my favorite - I'll be sharing lots of cards very soon.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!



I pulled out some older products from Catherine Pooler Designs along with a couple new ones and had some fun making this birthday card. I started by stamping the Desert Diamonds Background stamp with embossing ink and stamped it onto a white card stock panel cut to 4 x 5 1/4". Next I heat embossed it with white WOW Embossing Powder and adhered it directly to a white card base. 

I cut the Instant Happy Dies from white card stock and then blended on some Peppermint Scrub ink. I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Flutters & Blooms Paper Pack to fit behind the frame. I added the frame with some craft foam for dimension.


I stamped the cacti, flower pot and flower from the Wanna Hug Stamp Set, cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card. I stamped the birthday from the Happy Birthday Many Ways Stamp Set in Midnight ink. 



I'm playing along with a couple of challenges today:
