Around the World with Frantic Stamper

Jen Carter Globe World Space Sentiments

My favorite die from the latest Frantic Stamper Around the World release is this cute Globe die.  I die cut it from watercolored patterned paper and then used a black marker to color the base black.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite Frantic Stamper stamp sets, Sentiments from Space.  I die cut the white panel from the Pinprick Rectangles die set and used dimensional tape to adhere it to the aqua base.

I'm entering this in the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sunflower Medallions & Cyber Monday Sale with Catherine Pooler

**Catherine Poolers's Cyber Monday sale is still going strong!  Don't miss out on all of the great bargains!  

Since we are still in Fall but quickly heading into Winter, I wanted to share a set of cards I made with the Fall Sunflowers in mind using products from the last Catherine Pooler release.

Sunflowers with Medallions
I'm a Kansas girl and have always loved sunflowers.  I've been wanting to make a sunflower card for months now and so when I was playing with the goodies from the last Catherine Pooler line and saw the perfect new ink colors for sunflowers an idea was born!

Jen Carter CP Medallion Sunflower Trio All 3

Because I couldn't stop with just one sunflower card I made three!  The cards are all very similar.  I used the newly released Medallion Mixed Up Stamps (you can see other cards I made using this set here), Simply the Best stamp setBest in You stamp set and several new ink colors: Daydream, Sauna, Eucalyptus, Green Tea & Icing on the Cake

Jen Carter CP Medallion Sunflower Trio 1

The basic way that each of these cards are put together is that I started by stamping one of the medium sized medallions with Sauna ink.  I then chose a smaller medallion to fit inside that one, inking it with Icing on the Cake.  I stamped it off once on a scratch piece of paper and then stamped it inside the yellow medallion.  I then chose the smallest medallion and again inked it with Icing on the Cake and stamped it again.  I masked off the large medallion and stamped the other two smaller medallions in Sauna ink and Icing on the Cake ink.  For the leaves I pulled out the Best in You stamp set and stamped two of the leaves in that set with Eucalyptus & Green Tea inks.

Jen Carter CP Medallion Sunflower Trio 3

For the next two cards I stamped on kraft paper.  The sentiments on all three cards are from the Simply the Best stamp set.  The scripty best is stamped in Daydream ink and then the smaller sentiments are stamped in Icing on the Cake.  

Jen Carter CP Medallion Sunflower Trio 2

The plaid strips that are either on top of or layered underneath each card are stamped using the very cool Plaid Background stamp.  On the first card it is stamped with Daydream ink and on the last two it is stamped with Sauna ink.

I had a great time combining different medallions to make the sunflowers.  I love how they turned out.  You could make lots of similar flowers in all different colors.  I think they would also look great in Peppermint Scrub ink, don't you? :)

New Mini Release
You'll love the two new stamp sets and one die set being released Thursday night/Friday morning!  I had so much fun working with them!

Jen Carter Unstoppable Magical Winter Unicorn wm

When I think unicorns, I think rainbows and so I decided early on that this card had to filled with them!  I stamped the background using the FUN, MUST HAVE new stamp set, Unstoppable stamps (available Thursday night/Friday morning at 11:00 CST).  I used a rainbow of inks from Catherine Pooler in order: Sweet Sixteen, Pixie Dust, It's a Boy, Garden Party, Tiara, Bellini, It's a Girl & Party Dress.  I LOVE this new stamp set!  There are so many possibilities with it! 

I die cut the vellum piece with Stitched Mats Rectangles (this set will be 25% off during the Black Friday sale!) and then layered everything on top of that.  The adorable unicorn was die cut & stamped with the fun NEW Magical Winter dies & Magical Winter stamp set (available Thursday night/Friday morning at 11:00 CST). I embossed her with hot pink embossing powder and colored her with copics.  I added glitter with a pen.  The rainbow was die cut with the Rainbows & Clouds die set (50% off during the sale!) and then I added the clouds from the Cut it Out Clouds & Accessories (also 50% off during the sale!).

Jen Carter Unstoppable Magical Winter Unicorn Closeup Sentiment

I had a hard time getting the sentiment to photograph so that you could see it, so here's a closeup.  This sentiment is in the Unstoppable stamps and it fits so perfectly with the Magical Winter stamp set.

Paradise Found Release by Catherine Pooler

Welcome to the Paradise Found & Spa Ink Release from Catherine Pooler Designs! 

Hold onto your seats because this is a great release.  Have you seen the beautiful new ink colors?  Let me tell you they are gorgeous!!  

Also, if you had your eye on the Naturally Inspired SOA box and were waiting for those items to arrive in the store, you're in luck because they are releasing today too!  Whoop, Whoop!  If you'd like to shop now to make sure you get what you want before it possibly sells out, you can shop here now!

Today I have two cards to share with you using new products and new ink.

Walking in a {Plaid} Winter Wonderland

Jen Carter Plaid Winter Wonderland 2

This is my favorite card that I made with this release.  I started by stamping this awesome new Plaid Background Stamp with Midnight ink (it looks gorgeous stamped in the new colors too!!).  I trimmed the edges down so that the Midnight cardstock would show on each side.  

Jen Carter Plaid Winter Wonderland Closeup 1

This new Small Doily Die is so pretty!  I die cut it out of Kraft cardstock.  I then stamped some of the "greenery" from the new Winter Wonderland in Midnight ink and the new Eucalyptus ink color that you'll love for all things floral!  The sentiment and bow are also from the Winter Wonderland set as well. I tied some black twine around the middle of where the doily would go and then popped up the doily with dimensional tape.

A Winter Wonderland Wish

Jen Carter CP Winter Woodland Best Wishes 1

I love this new Winter Wonderland set and all of the wonderful things you can do with it!  There are also coordinating Winter Wonderland dies.  For this card I stamped the birch trees from the set on white linen paper for some texture using Black Jack Ink stamped off once and then stamped again for an even lighter tree.  I smooshed some ink onto an acrylic block and then used an aqua pen to pick up the color and draw the lines on the tree.  I know it looks labor intensive but it went really fast!  I stamped the deer in Icing on the Cake ink and the bunny is also stamped with that ink but stamped off once first.  I masked off the tree so the bunny looks likes she's hiding behind it.  The bird is stamped with the new Peppermint Scrub ink.

Jen Carter CP Winter Woodland Best Wishes Closeup

For the top of the card I stamped the snowflake cluster from the Winter Wonderland stamp set in VersaMark Ink and then embossed with the newly released, exclusive (and pretty cool!!) Wanderlust Embossing Powder.  I die cut the gorgeous Best Die on paper that I had blended Juniper MistDaydream & It's a Boy inks.  I then pressed the die cut into VersaMark Ink and embossed it with the same beautiful Wanderlust Embossing Powder.  The "wishes" sentiment is stamped from the Simply the Best Stamp Set.

Spa Ink Color Collection

Jen Carter CP Spa Ink Colors Swatch

I wanted to stamp out all of the gorgeous new colors for you so that you can see them together.  (This stamp is from the Medallion Mix-Up Stamps also being released today.) These are perfect rich colors, great for all of your Fall & Winter themed cards!  I LOVE them so much!  Pictured above are Royal Treatment, Juniper Mist, Daydream, Eucalyptus, Green Tea, Sauna, Mandarin Spice & Peppermint Scrub.  Believe me they are totally worth the investment!  You can purchase them HERE! 😀  And, if you don't have any of these gorgeous inks yet, why not treat yourself to the entire collection for Christmas??!!  You can find the complete ink collection HEREThey are honestly my favorite inks ever!

Christmas with Frantic Stamper

Jen Carter JOY Mistletoe

For this CAS Christmas card, I started by die cutting the Mistletoe from Frantic Stamper and then coloring it with copics.  I added some red pearls to it also where the berries are on the die.  I die cut the bow from gold cardstock, also with the Mistletoe die I die cut the J & Y with the new JOY dies.  I placed the mistletoe joy on a piece of peach cardstock die cut with one of the Pinprick Rectangles dies.  I rounded the corners with a corner rounder on the kraft cardstock to finish the card off.

I'm entering this card in the Addicted to CAS challenge to use bows.

Thanks for stopping by!
