Sunny with a Side of Sparkle New Catherine Pooler Release Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the new Catherine Pooler Release, Sunny with a Side of Sparkle!  All of the products are currently available in the store and you can see all of the newly released products here.


Comic Book Inspiration
For this first card I was inspired by the comic book look.  

Jen Carter Comic Starlights Sunburst Geo Trio Postage

The new Twisted Sunburst Stencil was perfect for creating this look.  I took the stencil and sponged Rockin' Red ink over it.  I then took the previously released Geo Trio Stencil and while I still had the Sunburst Stencil taped down I sponged Midnight ink on top to create the dots.  I started with the smallest dots toward the center and they got a little larger as they went out.  When I finished sponging I die cut the panel with the largest stitched rectangle die in the Postage Stamp die set.  I stamped the sentiment from the new Starlights stamp set. I die cut two of the largest stars and a few of the small stars in the Starlights die set.  I die cut two of the Star Word dies to create a shadow effect on the card.

Sending Love
The new paper pack called Peacock & Paisleys Patterned Paper is so bright and fun!   For this card I used it in a little unexpected way.

Jen Carter CP Love is in the Air Sunburst Postage Paisley Peacocks

I started by creating the background.  I used the Postage Stamp dies to cut the Peacock & Paisleys Patterned Paper panel & the blue postage layer also.  I cut the flowered paper at a diagonal so that I'd have a nice break between the two patterns and it also is a nice place for a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the newly released Bon Voyage stamp set.  The hot air balloon and the clouds are die cut from the Love is in the Air dies and the basket is stamped with the Love is in the Air stamp set.  That big, fun sun is another favorite die and is called the Sunburst die.
