Sunny with a Side of Sparkle New Catherine Pooler Release TODAY


Welcome to release day for Catherine Pooler's Sunny with a Side of Sparkle product line!  



Products are NOW AVAILABLE for purchase in the Catherine Pooler store!  Today we are releasing new stamp sets, new die sets, a fun new stencil and the much anticipated Love is in the Air products from a previous Stamp of Approval Collection and a new pack of patterned paper that coordinates with products from the Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval products as well!  There's LOTS of new products that I think you'll love!

Say it in Diamonds
This first card features a stamp set that is my favorite from the release called Say it in Diamonds!  The possibilities on how and where to arrange the diamonds in this stamp set make for unlimited possibilities!  For this first card I used only two of the images from the set with a rainbow of color.

Jen Carter CP Postage Say it in Diamonds Hello

To put this card together I first chose the sentiment and stamped it in the top middle center of my card panel.  That sentiment served as my guide on where to stamp the rainbow of images on my card. The colors I chose for my card are: Be Mine, Orange Twist, Limoncello, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue & the lovely Grape Crush. To keep the images lined up I started by stamping the images directly surrounding the sentiment and then went out from there.  When I was completely finished stamping the panel, I then used my all time favorite die set 💖from Catherine Pooler called Postage Stamp Dies to cut out the outside postage frame panel.  Then, I used one of the nesting stitched rectangle dies also included in the set to die cut the main image panel which I popped up with dimensional tape.  I stamped the sentiment a second time on white cardstock and then embossed it with Wanderlust Embossing Powder (GET THIS!!!) 💙which adds a beautiful glitter to the sentiment.  I used my paper trimmer to cut it in the diamond shape and attached it with dimensional tape.

Wish Upon a Star
This next card features several other new products including the Starlights Stamp Set, Star Word die and the SOA Postage Stamp dies.  I chose a unique color combination for this card as well.

Jen Carter CP Wish Upon a Star Gala

The colors I used for this card are Juniper Mist, Mandarin Spice, It's a Girl, Sauna & It's a Boy.  I stamped a pattern with the Starlights Stamp Set and inserted little filler stars between the larger stars.  For the edge of the card I used a piece of black & white striped paper from the Black Tie Gala paper pad.

For the sentiment, I diecut the Star Word die from yellow cardstock, dipped it in VersaMark ink and then embossed it with Wanderlust Embossing Powder (remember how I told you earlier you need this powder...). 😄  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of rustic cream cardstock that I had diecut with the Postage Stamp Dies.  Here's a little video that shows how I did that.


I really like the Postage Stamp Dies because they are unique and provide lots of layering possibilities.  I love having these in my collection and reach for them often!  I love that I can make custom sized sentiment or image panels easily using this die set!  In my opinion it is a must have!
