Catherine Pooler Tropical Treasures New Release + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to the blog hop for the new Catherine Pooler Designs Tropical Treasures Release!  All of the products are NOW AVAILABLE in the Catherine Pooler store!  There are some FUN new products available that you're going to want to add to your growing collection!  


I had so much fun creating with this collection that I had a hard time narrowing down what to share with you today.  So, I have a card set with 5 cards and then if you scroll to the very end you'll find one more rainbow inspired hexagon card for a total of 6 cards today.

Trendy Pineapple Note Card Set
For this first set of cards I was inspired so much by the new Wild Thing Background stamp. I LOVE those wonky polka dots!  This card set came along by accident actually.  I had die cut a pineapple from the super fun Pineapple & Smiles stamp set and had also stamped out several of the Wild Thing Backgrounds and then laid them on top of each other while I made a different card.  When I looked over and saw those polka dots peeking through the negative of the pineapple die cut image I knew right away I needed to make a card...or two...or five. And because of that this card set was born.  And I believe it is my favorite thing that I made for this new release!


So to start each card I die cut out the pineapple from 1/2 of the card front using the Pineapple & Bits dies.  I then stamped out the Wild Thing Backgrounds 5 times on Premium White cardstock using my Misti which made it go very quickly.  I used a sliver of cardstock from each color and made a rainbow at the bottom of each pineapple that is peeking out.  I stamped the various sentiments on the card front, wrapped black twine around each colored piece and then attached the colored cardstock with dimensional tape to the Wild Thing polka dotted background.  Below is a closeup of each card (I'll list the sentiment that I used underneath each one).

Hexagon Happy Birthday
This last card was inspired by quilting.  No, I don't quilt but I LOVE quilts and the patterns that you can find on quilts.  There are a lot of quilts that use hexagons in the patterns and that is where the inspiration for this card was found.

Jen Carter Hex Marks the Spot - Say it in Diamonds

For this card I started by stamping the black & white center of the flowers on Premium White Cardstock using the Hex Marks the Spot stamp set.  I chose two ink colors for each flower (colors linked below) and rotated colors as I went around the center.  I decided to use the solid hexagon for the petals but there are lots of fun patterned stamps so that you could easily use the solid hexagon for the center and use some of the patterned hexagons for the petals!  That would look super cool too!  The sentiment is stamped & embossed on vellum and is from the Say it in Diamonds stamp set that was previously released.

Jen Carter Hex Marks the Spot - Say it in Diamonds Closeup

Here's a closeup of the flowers.  Once I finished stamping all of the flowers, I added the trio of polka dots using a tiny stamp in the Fearless Pursuit stamp set just to fill in some of the gaps and add more visual interest.  I cut the panel down slightly and adhered it to a Midnight card panel.
