Sparkle & Shine Like a Sunflower


Being a Kansas girl, you've heard me say it before, I love sunflowers.  So much so that in college and early in my married life I use to collect sunflower decor.  Now I don't decorate with sunflowers but I am still attracted to their beauty and have been known to buy a bouquet or two for the house from time to time.  Playing with the new Be Wild Stamp set from Catherine Pooler I discovered that I could make a sunflower-like flowers with the stamps in the set. I know sunflowers are fall flowers but I think they are beautiful enough for anytime of the year on a card! :)

I first die cut a circle out of my card panel, making room for the sentiment that I'd add later and then started stamping the outer yellow flower petals from the Be Wild Stamp set with Tiara ink.  I then went in and stamped the inside circle with Over Coffee ink.  I added the little trio of black dots four times to each circle. I chose the tiniest leaf from the set and used Lime Rickey ink to add in the green leaves.

The first thing about this Be Wild Stamp set that drew my eye was the Sparkle & Shine sentiment.  I love it!  And that's exactly what a sunflower does! I stamped that sentiment on a piece of green cardstock and then adhered the sunflower panel with dimensional tape to the top.  I added some yellow sequins to finish the card off.

Hip Hip & Hooray!


Jen Carter Hip hip and Hooray CP Ampersand rainbow 1

I thought it was time for another rainbow card!  I love this big ampersand die from Catherine Pooler Designs!  It is such a great design and of course it needed to be in a rainbow!  I die cut a white panel with the Postage Stamp dies, then die cut the large ampersand from the And dies set (it's 50% off in the store right now, better hurry!) and then layered strips of colored cardstock behind it.  The background is stamped in Versamark with the new Wild Thing Background stamp.

The sentiments are from the Woohoo stamp set which is one of my personal favorites and it is embossed with the fun new Bang Embossing powder from the Confetti Embossing Trio.  I loved that these sentiments were thick enough to use this powder on!  I lined each sentiment with a little Midnight cardstock to help it pop just a little more. 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope your day is full of Hip Hip & Hoorays!

Sending Smiles + Big Sale


Happy April!  Today I wanted to share a fun card with you using some newer Catherine Pooler products.  And one of the products I used on this card is on SALE right now in the shop (more on that at the end of this post)!

Jen Carter Pineapple and Smiles - Wild Thing - Wonky Triangles

First up I started with the background. I stenciled Grass Skirt & Be Mine inks on Premium White Cardstock with the Life Changing Blender Brushes & the Wonky Triangles Stencil.  I then stamped over the triangle background with the Wild Thing Background stampIt reminds me of a watermelon but I finished the card with a pineapple. :)

For the focal point of this card I die cut and stamped the pineapple using the Pineapple & Smiles stamp set and the Pineapple & Bits dies.  I then used a Zig Blender Pen and It's a GirlBe Mine ink to color in the pineapple.  For the top portion of the pineapple I used Grass Skirt & Lime Rickey inks and then outlined the leaves with a black micron pen (05).   I added some googly eyes to the pineapple & used a little sliver from the Blowing Bubbles Border die to make a mouth for the pineapple.  I also added some flower sequins from the Inspiration Point Sequin set for some bling for the "hair".  I die cut the background tag in vellum using the Lovely Flowers & Banners die set and embossed the sentiment in black, also from the Pineapple & Smiles stamp set.  I used Midnight paper as accents on the card also.

Big Sale
I'm not sure how long the sale will last, but right now there are lots of great deals, many for 50% off, in the Catherine Pooler store!  The Lovely Flowers & Banners die set that I die cut the vellum tag with on the card above is only $11.98 for a limited time (50% off).  Many of my favorite stamps & dies are also on sale!  Be sure to check it out!

Thank you for stopping by today!
