All the Trimmings Release from Catherine Pooler Designs


Welcome to Day 3 of the new Catherine Pooler Release, All the Trimmings!  All of the products will be available in the store tomorrow October 17th at 9 AM EST and you will be able to see all of the newly released products here

3 New Ink Colors
Have you heard that we have THREE new ink colors releasing?  YAY!!  Here's a peek!


You're going to want to add these to your collection!  You can check out the rest of the beautiful ink line here.  I have tried many, many inks since I started stamping and these are my favorites!  Trust me!  Give them a try! 😁

Today I have two projects to share with you.  Let's start with the tag kit.

Color Your Own Tag Kit
I like to think of ways to use my stamps & dies for more than just cards.  And I also love to get my daughter involved with using the products too if I can.  I thought that the images in some of the new stamp sets, especially the Holiday Charm Stamp Set, Santa Approved stamp set & the Seasonal Sentiments and Borders Stamp Set, paired with the new Nested Labels dies would make super fun tag kits!  

The idea of the kits is that you give a child (your children, grandchildren, neighbors, classmates, etc) the kit and they can color their own tags to put on the gifts under the tree.

Below are what the kits look like all bundled up.

Jen Carter Make Own Tags Kits 2 with CP WM

I used the Nested Labels dies to make smaller tags for the packaging.  I also used some of the fun new Love, Doves & Poinsettias Patterned Paper to decorate the tags with.  The little "Nice List Santa Approved" image is from the Santa Approved Stamp Set (die cut with the coordinating Santa Approved dies) and stamped with the new Samba ink.

Each kit contains 6 die cut and pre-stamped tags (make sure to stamp with a water safe ink such as Midnight so that the ink doesn't run when watercolored on) and some sort of coloring medium.  I used two different coloring mediums with mine, a kid's watercolor palette and some crayons.  You could also do a small set of mini markers as well.  In my kit I didn't include any ribbon or twine but you could add that in as well.



My daughter had a great time coloring the tags!  Here she is in action.

Here's some of the finished product.  My daughter colored the Christmas tree on the bottom left.  (Yes, I reused the packages from the last wood slice ornament set I made previously. 😀)

Here are a few closeups of the tags (these images are from the Holiday Charm stamp set & Seasonal Sentiments & Borders stamp set):

Sadie also colored another tag using an image from the Santa Approved stamp set and for this one we put it on a gift bag.

Here's another closeup.  She did such a good job with that elf I thought and had so much fun with it too!

Thank you for sticking with me through all of those photos!  I have one last project to share today and that is a card that I hope you'll like!


Noel

Jen Carter Peace Love Doves Seasonal Sentiments Noel

For this card I embossed the Peace, Love & Doves Background stamp with Wow! Bright White Embossing Powder on Premium White Cardstock.  I then used Catherine Pooler ink to watercolor the images.  The inks I used are: Samba, Rockin' Red, Tiara, Spruce, Eucalyptus, Green Tea & Twilight.  I used a water pen to move the color.

For this sentiment panel, I die cut two sizes of the Nested Labels dies with Midnight cardstock and then on the larger one I embossed two of the images from the Seasonal Sentiments & Borders stamp set in Wow! Bright White Embossing PowderOn the smaller one, that I adhered with dimensional tape on top of the larger one, I embossed the Noel sentiment, also from the Seasonal Sentiments & Borders stamp set.  I used a glitter pen to color inside the Noel and the swirls.  I stamped the holly from the Holiday Charm stamp set and colored it in with my inks as well.  I love watercoloring when the images have been embossed because the water pools slightly and gives a natural highlight to the images.
