Catherine Pooler Storybook Collection New Release + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to the blog hop for the new Catherine Pooler Designs Storybook Collection 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!  


And there's 4 new ink colors too! Yippee!! Check out my recent blog post showing the new colors stamped out with a brand new background stamp.  


Hello Sweet Friend
The new Fluttering Friends stamp set is simply adorable!  As soon as I saw it I knew it would be so cute on cards.

Fluttering Friends Jen Carter

I started by first stamping the bird and leaves from the Fluttering Friends stamp set and then die cut with the coordinating Fluttering Friends dies.  I colored the images with copics.  I blended the background using Life Changing Brushes and Limencello, Mint to Be, Seafoam & Aquatini inks. I wanted the bird to be on a perch of some kind so I die cut a tree "branch" from the Winter Woodland die set and then stamped it in Over Coffee ink with the coordinating tree image in the Winter Woodland stamp set.  The sentiments, I'm in love with that font!, are also from the Fluttering Friends stamp set. I used some striped black & white paper from the Black Tie Gala patterned paper pack to give the card a little more contrast.

A Wonderful Time is Ahead!
For this next card I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest and ran with it.  

Just Wonderful Floral Apples Jen Carter

There are so many ways that you can use the new Just Wonderful Floral stamps.  For this card I turned them into fruit!  I stamped the various apples or peaches or whatever you see 😁 with Lemongrass, Coral Cabana, Pixie Dust & Be MineThe sentiment is from the same stamp set.

The leaves were stamped with Mint to Be ink and highlighted with Midnight accents here and there.  I used the leaf images from both the Just Wonderful Floral stamp set and the Be Wild stamp set.  I get the leaves to be textured on the fruit stems I inked the stamp in the color I wanted and then "kissed" it onto a patterned leaf image and then stamped. I created a video to show this process in more detail.

Your softly colored bird and background looks so cute. I like the effect

Nan0807 said...

Beautiful cards! Thanks for posting the video something I always forget is the kissing technique.

Thomas said...

Wow, you kick started my brain with the kissing technique. I've used it but never thought about using it with layering stamps. I like the simplicity of using only the one ink color .

Donna Hawkins said...

Your cards are stunning! The colors you used just make them pop and fun!!

Carol Hardie said...

Great cards Jen. Thanks for the kissing technique reminder. Really does extend the use of your stamp sets. That little birdie card stole my heart. What a cutie.

Wow. You do some amazing color jobs! I really like your colorful style! Your cards are stunning and have surely made me want to buy the wood slice die directly after I finish this hop!

Kelsey Thomas said...

Awesome cards!
