 ...because today is release day for Catherine Pooler Designs new Date Night inks and

I used 4 of the new Date Night Inks on my card today - 

In The Park, Cummerbund, Pucker Up and Drive-in.



Here are all of the 8 new colors. They are so pretty!!


I stamped the main image from the Through The Prism stamp set using my MISTI onto some water color card stock. I used the MISTI so I could stamp it a couple of times to be sure to get good coverage. Next I heat set it with some WOW White Embossing Powder and then had some fun with one of my all time favorite techniques - ink smooshing. I started by smooshing the ink pad onto a large block, adding a little water then pouncing the paper into the ink. I dried it with my heat gun and then repeated the process with the next ink color.


After it was all dry I repeated the process but this time I used the re-inkers instead of the ink pad. I squeezed a couple of drops onto a large block, added a couple sprays of water and then pounced the paper into the ink puddle. This really made the colors more vibrant. 
By doing it with the ink pad and the re-inkers I was able to achieve a two tone look of each color.



To finish the card I layered it onto some black card stock leaving the tiniest of borders. I cut a strip of the striped paper from the Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper and added it to the left side of the card base then added the inked panel. 

For the sentiment I did another of my favorites - heat embossing with white onto black card stock - it's a simple technique but it definitely packs a punch.


Now to write in this card and get it in the mail. One of my goals this year is to send out more 'just because' cards to friends and family. The world is so crazy right now and who knows when we'll be able to visit with loved ones again so why not send them something to let them know you are thinking of them. And a handmade card is perfect for that.
