Wild & Wonderful by Catherine Pooler Release Day!


Welcome to release day for Catherine Pooler's Wild & Wonderful product line!  Products are NOW AVAILABLE for purchase in the Catherine Pooler store including THREE new ink colors!  Yippee!! You all know how much I love Catherine's inks!  Today Grape Crush & Limoncello inks are releasing and the much anticipated Be Mine ink that was included in a previous Stamp of Approval box is also releasing!  Yippee!!  These three inks are part of a new collection of inks in the Party Line called Carnivale that also includes All that Jazz which ranks as one of my all time favorite CP inks!  Check out the Carnival Bundle here.

Today's cards are popping with color!

Wonderful Wildflowers Bold & Striped
I love bold floral images with black & white stripes!  The Wonderful Wildflowers stamps definitely pop against the stripes in this first card.


Jen Carter CP Wonderful Wildflowers Thanks Black Tie Grape Limoncello

Aren't the flowers in the Wonderful Wildflowers stamp set gorgeous (there are coordinating dies also)?  I love how many color combinations you can make with these.  I am sharing another card tomorrow that uses the same flowers but they are subtle and elegant.  My color combinations for the flowers & leaves are (ink colors linked below): Flirty Fuchsia & Grape Crush, Limoncello & Orange Twist, Bellini & Party Dress, All that Jazz & Something Borrowed, Lime Rickey & Grass Skirt.  The centers of the flowers are also stamped with Party Dress & Limoncello.  The sentiment is from a new stamp set called Note of Thanks.  The black & white striped paper is from the Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper Pad which is one of my favorite paper pads!

Focus on the Good Duo
This next set of cards are very similar.  The only real difference is that on one I used the coordinating die cuts and popped up the images and on the other one the images are stamped directly on the cardstock.

  Jen Carter CP Focus on Good Kaleidoscope Duo 22

I die cut my card base to 4 1/4 x 8".  I stamped the fun new Kaleidoscope Background on to the Smoke & Mirrors gray carstock with VersaMark ink. 

Jen Carter CP Focus on Good Kaleidoscope Duo 1

I die cut a circle with a die from my stash and then started stamping the flower & leaf images using the new Focus on the Good Floral stamp set.  I stamped the images with lots of CP inks (individually linked below): Be Mine, All that Jazz, Limoncello, Party Dress, Bellini, Orange Twist, Black Jack, Daydream.  The sentiment is also in the Focus on the Good Floral stamp set.  

Jen Carter CP Focus on Good Kaleidoscope Duo 2

On the 2nd card I used the coordinating Focus on the Good dies and popped them up with dimensional tape.

I also used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add glitter to the centers of the flowers, stems and to the leaves.

Fabulous cards! I love how Catherine's floral sets are always kinda funky! So much fun! I love the 2 set of cards and actually think I like them stamped directly on the circle rather than popped (weird cause I always love to pop). The beautiful gray card base is the perfect background for those colorful flowers! Thanks for sharing your creativity and talent with us!
