Catherine Pooler Welcome Home New Release + GIVEAWAY!


Welcome to the blog hop for the new Catherine Pooler Designs Welcome Home Release!  All of the products will be available in the store on Wednesday, February 13th at 9 AM EST and you will be able to see all of the newly released products here at that time.   There are some beautiful new products available that you're going to fall in love with!  

Wonderful Ombre
I love ombre and when I pulled out the gorgeous new Rondi's Window Background stamp I knew that there were two things I wanted to do with it right away.  One was to color it.  The second was to emboss it on to an ombre background.  

Jen-Carter_Rondi's-Window_Awesome-&-Wonderful_pink-ombre

To create the background I used It's a Girl, Be Mine, Mandarin Spice, Polished & Coral Cabana inks with a foam blender.  I didn't use a heavy hand, but just inked lightly, moving up a little at a time.  The colors made such a beautiful colored background. I made sure the background was completely dry and then embossed in white the Rondi's Window Background stamp onto the blended background.

I die cut the previously released Awesome die from white cardstock and then "dipped" the bottom of it in VersaMark ink and embossed it with my favorite embossing powder Wanderlust.  The "you are" sentiment is new and comes from a stamp set that coordinates perfectly with the die called Awesome & Wonderful stamp setThat new stamp set also coordinates with the previously release Wonderful die as well!

A Bike Ride to Say Hello
The next set I'm featuring today is one that makes me long for Spring and warmer days!  It is filled with cute Spring-like images!

Jen-Carter_Beautiful-Ride_Way-to-Say-Hey_hello-postage-bike

I stamped the adorable bicycle from the new Beautiful Ride stamp set toward the end of my cardstock panel so that there would be enough room for the sentiment.  I colored the bike with copics.  I also added the suitcases to the bike rack and colored those with copics as well.  The adorable little bicycle streamers are a separate stamp also and they were stamped with It's a Boy ink.  

Jen-Carter_Beautiful-Ride_Way-to-Say-Hey_hello-postage-bike-closeup

I really like the Ways to Say Hey dies and thought one of them would make a great road for the bicycle.  I die cut the hello (yes, I got a little wobbly when I was adhering it and it's slightly crooked, oops!) from Smoke & Mirrors cardstock.   I then die cut the entire piece with one of the Postage Stamp dies.  The panel was adhered to another piece of Smoke & Mirrors cardstock.
