Peace & Joy


Today at work I was writing the date and I realized that we are 1/3 of the way through October already.  How?  How is that possible?  Today it feels more like November in Kansas with wind and cold and even some mist coming down.  And here we are with only a little over 2 months until Christmas! Many of you are working on Christmas cards already and today I wanted to share one with you that I made using products from the latest Catherine Pooler release.  

Peace & Joy

Christmas Tree Farm Starry Night Cover Banner JDC

For this card I stamped several of the trees from the Christmas Tree Farms stamp setThis is such a versatile stamp set and can be used year round!  For the background I wanted to have a starry night sky so I used the Starry Night Cover Plate die and backed it with yellow cardstock to help the stars peak out.  The sentiments come from the Holiday Mix Stamps and I added a little strip of Patterns & Pine Patterned Paper to the bottom of the sentiment strip.

I wanted to create a banner between the trees and so I used the Throwing Confetti Cover Plate die to cut out the circles and then stamped the patterns with stamps from the Spot On stamp set

Thank you for joining me today!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Ardyth's 3K YouTube Video Hop

Join me over on my YouTube channel where I am celebrating Ardyth reaching 3,000 YouTube subscribers!  There are LOTS of prizes to be won!  And if you've been itching to try Catherine Pooler inks, each channel on the hop is giving away 2 ink pads to a random commenter!




Color Burst Sprays

Bear Grass Stencil Garden Gate Color Burst Jen Carter 1

I share in the video how I made this card using homemade color sprays.  To create the sprays I used the Catherine Pooler Color Burst Powders!  This is such a fun technique, especially if you like to make simple water color backgrounds!



I really like how you can get such a soft look with these bright colors by making them into sprays and also by taking some of the ink off after you've sprayed it.

Here's a closer look at the finished card.  You can see how some of the spots changed colors when mixed together.  I love that!  The stencil I used is the Bear Grass Stencil from Catherine Pooler.

For the top of the card I die cut the Garden Gate die in white and attached it.  I wrapped velllum around the top of the card and then attached the Hello letters that were die cut with the Hello Mini Cover Plate die.  To make the letters glittery I used a glitter pen (linked below) over the top.

All About Christmas Catherine Pooler Release Day

The latest Catherine Pooler release is available TODAY at 9 AM EST!  And there's a FREE Gift with Purchase for orders $35 or over (details below).  Yay!  I've been sharing some sneak peeks on my blog this week and today I have another card that is an elegant Christmas card made with a beautiful stamp set.


Boughs and Berries JDC

I created the grapevine part of the wreath with the Sweet Home Wreath stamp set.  I then die cut & stamped pieces from the beautiful new Boughs & Berries stamp set and Boughs & Berries dies.  This set is so pretty and I love the various patterns that make this set so unique!   The green border was die cut with one of the Bordering Sweet dies.

For the inside of the wreath I stamped the joy sentiment from the Boughs & Berries stamp set on Midnight cardstock and embossed it in white.  The background, which uses one of my favorite stamps, is the Buffalo Plaid Background stamp and it is stamped with Midnight ink
