Happy Easter

Jen Carter Easter Egg Pop Up Happy Bunny Friend wm

Easter is almost here!  Wow, this year is flying by!  I wanted to share another card I made using the fun Cover Up Die: Easter Egg Pop Up.  Oh goodness, this die is fun!  I shared a card where I colored the images in a similar fashion here.  For the eggs I used several stamp sets from Lil' Inker Designs but mainly the Unstoppable Stamps.  I stamped them with lots of fun Catherine Pooler Ink colors.  The large friend is from the Friend Stamp set and "Happy Easter" comes from the Happy Bunny Stamp set.

I layered yellow cardstock behind the pop up eggs die and you can see the yellow from behind the eggs I popped up.



Happy Easter weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

#Amazing You

Jen Carter Frantic Stamper Amazing You


Frantic Stamper recently released probably my favorite Frantic Stamper dies ever called Brooklyn Alphabet.  I love the size of the dies and how tall they are (approximately 2").  There are so many possibilities with these dies.   I started by taking several colors of Distress Oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron & Peacock Feathers) and blended a rainbow background on a white piece of cardstock.  I then added some drops of water to the blended ink to make the splotches.  I used the Brooklyn Numbers die set to make the # sign and then used the Brooklyn Alphabet set to spell out amazing.  The "you" is from the Handwritten "Love You" die set.

I attached the white panel to the rainbow background white foam tape and added some sequins to finish the card off.

Wonderful Friend


DSC_5363

Hi friends!  Today I am sharing a card using products from the latest Catherine Pooler release.  Did you happen to check out the gorgeous floral set from the last release called Grateful Heart?  I took a look at that set and thought right away what a beautiful background those images would be stamped in black on white cardstock.  So that's what I did.  I arranged them on a large block and stamped it several times on my card panel filling in the gaps where necessary.  I adhered this to a cardfront and then adhered a small stripe of the must-have Black Tie Gala patterned paper to the left side.

DSC_5365

For the sentiment I cut a piece of the new Catherine Pooler vellum (48 lb cover weight) and then attached the sentiment that I had die cut with the new Wonderful die.  I stamped & embossed the "Friend" sentiment from the Lovely Flowers stamp set. I embossed some of the flowers from the Grateful Heart stamp set and then colored them with my Catherine Pooler inks, just picking up the color from the lid of the ink pads. I finished by adhering some clear sequins.  


I love me some black & white papers!  And I LOVE the patterns in this Black Tie Gala paper pack!  This is the pad of paper that I used as a strip on my card and I'm sure you'll see me using this a lot.  If you haven't picked up a pad yet I highly recommend it! :)  

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Hope you have a gorgeous day!

All that Jazz Catherine Pooler Release Day!



Welcome to release day for Catherine Pooler's All that Jazz product line!  Products are now available for purchase in the Catherine Pooler store including the much anticipated All that Jazz ink!  Yippee!


A Magnet for Miracles
I really like the large sentiment in the Grateful Heart stamp set that says, "A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles".  How cool is that? 

DSC_5350

For this card I watercolored the background using five Catherine Pooler ink colors: Garden Party, Tiki Torch, Tiara, Flirty Fuchsia & Party Dress.  After the background dried I stamped the sentiment form the new Grateful Heart stamp set.  

DSC_5354

I die cut some of the flowers from the Grateful Heart die set, stamped them with the coordinating Grateful Heart stamp set and embossed them in white.  I then watercolored using the inks from the background and also using a little bit of Lime Rickey in the leaves to add some contrast.  I added some glitter from a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen on top of the flowers.

You Were Made for Something Wonderful

DSC_5348

For my last card for today I used several other new products that are now available to order.  I first used the super cool & new Square Dance Stencil and blended It's a Girl, Rose Petals, Mint to Be & Seafoam inks over the stencil onto white cardstock, overlapping colors as I moved to the middle.   I die cut the tag with the Tags, etc die set (Get this! You'll love the versatility!). I stamped the sentiment on to the tag, masking off the very bottom, from the Good Things stamp set. I die cut the new Wonderful die three times out of black cardstock and adhered them together and then attached it to my tag.  The gorgeous black and white paper that you see peeking out underneath the white & pink layers is an item that you'll want to get quickly because it will sell out.  It's called Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper.

Everything I've shared today is available to order now here...and that includes the long anticipated All that Jazz ink!  You'll even find the "I Want it all Bundle!".

All that Jazz Catherine Pooler Release Day 2


Hello!  Welcome to a sneak peek of the newest Catherine Pooler release! The products I am showing today will be available for purchase on Tuesday, March 20th at 9 AM CST.



You Are Loved More than You Know
Isn't that generally the case?  Sometimes we can feel so alone but often we have our own little cheering section that we overlook.  When times are hard those are the people who show up!

DSC_5376

I went bright and bold with this card!  With Catherine's inks it is easy to do!  I took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and then inked it up with a foam blender and Flirty Fuchsia, All that Jazz (it is FINALLY releasing tomorrow!!!!), Garden Party & Be Mine (coming soon) inks.  It looks like I used more inks because when the inks are blended together they create such beautiful colors!  Once I had my background inked I took the new Music Notes Background stamp, spritzed it with water and then stamped it onto the background.  It reacts with the ink to create a watermark background!  I added a strip of the gorgeous, must have Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper to the side of the card base.


DSC_5378

I die cut a piece of NEW! 80 lb Vellum with the Tags, Etc die set and then stamped and embossed in black the beautiful new sentiment from the new Grateful Heart Stamp Set.  I die cut the flower & leaves with the Bloomin' Bouquet die set and stamped them with the coordinating Bloomin' Bouquet stamp set (releasing on March 20).  The flower is stamped with Flirty Fushcia ink & the leaves with All that Jazz ink I spritzed the flower with water and added some black enamel dots to the center.  I layered all of that on the vellum tag and attached to my card base.  

You Were Made for Something Special
I believe that is true.

Jen Carter CP Made Something Special Front wm2

I went with bright colors again for this card.  Because let's face it...Catherine's inks are so beautiful and make gorgeous, colorful cards!  For this card I stamped the flowers with the Counting Blessings: Bloomin' Bouquet Stamps & die cut some of them out with the coordinating Bloomin' Bouquet dies.  The colors I used are Party DressTiki TorchTiaraAquatiniPixie DustGarden Party & Lime Rickey.  I stamped the sentiment using the Counting Blessings: Good Things stamp set.  To finish it off I added a few clear sequins and attached to a yellow card base.

Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 3


Welcome back to the last day of the Lil' Inker Designs release!  All of the products are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store, so you can start shopping now! :)   

Ouch! That's Rough!
A little over two years ago Lil' Inker Designs released a cute stamp set called So Prickly.  Today we are bringing you So Prickly Cactus dies that coordinate perfectly with the stamp set but work well by themselves too.

Jen Carter So Prickly Stamps Dies Cactus wm

I started by die cutting a piece of white cardstock with one of the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles dies and then trimmed off the side so it was the size I needed for my cacti.  I then chose a patterned paper for my cacti pots that I had die cut with the So Prickly Cactus dies and added a piece of light orange cardstock to the tops for some contrast. I die cut the cacti and the blooms and then attached the assembled images to my panel.  I die cut the background patterned paper card panel with the largest Stitched Mats: Rectangles die.  The sentiment was stamped using the coordinating So Prickly stamp set.

So Very Kind
For this last card I am sharing another new die set that is also part of a series.  This one is called So Very Kind Greeting die.

Jen Carter So Very Kind Greeting Encouraging Words wm

I die cut the So Very Kind Greeting die out of a piece of Dip Dyed Ombre Paper and then backed it with a piece of white glitter paper to add some shine.

I die cut and watercolored one of the flowers in the Encouraging Words stamp set and adhered it to the corner of the card.  The nice thing about the So Very Kind Greeting die is that you can make quick and simple cards!

Lil' Inker Designs March Release: Day 2



Welcome to day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs Release!  All of the products being shown today are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store!  

Today I have two more spring cards to share with you.

Bouquet of Roses
This new Bouquet of Roses stamp set is so gorgeous and for this card I decided to try a technique that I haven't done for a while!


Jen Carter Bouquet of Roses Cover Up Eyelet wm

For this card I first took a piece of light purple cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles die.  I then took the large image from the Bouquet of Roses stamp set and embossed it in white on my panel.  I then colored the image with my copics.  I love the way this turned out!  I added the little tag and sentiment to the tag (lots of options on how to do this!) using the extra stamps in the set.  For the background of my card I die cut the gorgeous Cover Up Die: Eyelet on white cardstock and then backed it with a piece of purple ombre paper from the Dip Dyed Ombre Paper Pad.

Some Bunny Loves You
My second card today combines two new die sets and a new stamp set as well.

Jen Carter Easter Egg Pop Up Happy Bunny Border Stamps  wm

I started by die cutting that fun egg background with the new Cover Up Die: Easter Egg Pop Up.  I then created a mask by die cutting the background a second time with thin typing paper.  I cut one of the eggs out and then used it as a mask as I stamped the images on each egg using the Unstoppable Stamps using Catherine Pooler inks.

Next, I die cut the adorable bunny border with the new Happy Bunny Border die (there are two dies that you can overlay for more bunnies!) from white cardstock and then stamped the images on the bunnies & the sentiment using the coordinating Happy Bunny stamp set.  I added glasses & a bow tie with dies from the Happy Bunny Border die set.  I just LOVE those little tiny details!

I'm going to enter this card in the Simon Monday Challenge to create a Spring card.
