Kind of Batty Catherine Pooler Release Day 1



Welcome to release day for Catherine Pooler's Kind of Batty product line! This release incorporates a few different themes: flowers, leaves & Halloween.  There's something for everyone AND there are THREE new neutral inks releasing: Twilight, Sand Castle & Over Coffee!  




Products are NOW AVAILABLE for purchase in the Catherine Pooler store!  

I've have made so many cards with this first group of products that I'm showing today that it was hard to narrow down which ones to share!  You'll be seeing a lot of cards using these products in the weeks to come!  I've put together a few videos with tips on lining up the stamp images that I'm going to share with you today also.

Kind of Wonderful
This first card is my favorite of all of the cards that I made with these products!  It reminds me of a picnic, I think because of the colors. 

Jen Carter CP Rose Garden Kind of Wonderful Angled Squares Picnic 1

I first stamped the background with Sauna ink using the cool and very versatile Angled Squares Background Stamp.  I die cut the tag from the Lovely Flowers & Banners die set to help make the focal point of the card.  I stamped the large Kind in Rockin' Red ink from the Kind of Wonderful stamp set and then added "of wonderful" underneath from the same stamp set.

The gorgeous flowers are from the new Rose Garden Stamp set & coordinating Rose Garden die set.  Below is a video with tips on how to line the flower stamps up.  The biggest tip that I found and that a Design Team member shared with me is to start by stamping the 3rd layer stamp first and then stamp the rest.  That was a game changer for me!  I demonstrate this tip in the video.  The colors I stamped the flowers & leaves in are:  All that Jazz, Juniper Mist, Sauna, Shea Butter, Rockin' Red, Peppermint Scrub, Garden Party, Lime Rickey, Eucalyptus, Spruce, Over Coffee & Icing on the Cake.





I hope that that video helped to show how to line up the different layers. There is also a guide available on the stamp page that shows how to line them up as well.  Like I mentioned before, the biggest thing to remember is to stamp the layers in this order: Layer 3, Layer 4, Layer 1, Layer 2 and die cut last.  That helped me big time!

Thank You Squared
I played around with the Angled Squares Background Stamp for this next card and found a fun way to layer the background!

Jen Carter CP Angled Squared Stacked Hello Autumn Thanks

For the background on this card I stamped the Angled Squares Background Stamp three times in Mandarin Spice, Polished & Lime Rickey inks.  I then used my paper trimmer to trim each piece down and then layered them on top of each other using dimensional tape.  On the 2nd layer I also tied some twine around the panel to coordinate with the fall theme.

Aren't those leaves gorgeous?  I shared a video below on how to line each leaf up and I did it by die cutting the white cardstock first and then stamping the image on the die cut piece.  I thought that this helped with easy placement (exactly opposite of how I did the Garden Roses stamp set on the first card.)  The colors that I used for these leaves are: Tutti Frutti, Mandarin Spice, Sauna, Black Jack, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt, Spruce, Polished, Coral Cabana, Rockin' Red, Shea Butter, Tiara, & Sauna.  The sentiment, from the Kind of Wonderful stamp set, is stamped in the new Twilight ink.


These leaves really are easy to line up!  Hopefully you can see that by watching the video. I really enjoyed playing with this set a lot and have quite a few more cards to share in the next few weeks using them.
