So excited to be collaborating with the fabulous Catherine Pooler and her Team. I've been using their inks, stamps and dies for a while now and absolutely swear by them…. I LOVE them !!!
Working on a card panel slightly smaller than the card base, ink up the diagonal strip from the Happiness enclosed Stamp Set with CP ink Daydream and stamp, repeat moving over slightly.
Using some scrap white card, ink up a bit of the flower from Wonderful Wildflowers in Aquatini then fill in with Daydream.

Ink up the flower this time with WOW! Slow Drying Embossing Ink Pad and stamp over the flower and emboss with Clear Gloss. Take the tri-petal stamp from the matching flower and ink up with WOW! Slow Drying Embossing Ink, this time add WOW! Sparkles to it, shake off the excess and heat from underneath. It's important to heat from underneath, as this remelts the clear gloss and the Sparkles settle into the embossing powder. This is great if you don't like the idea of glitter shredding, as it stays exactly where it is, even if you rub it !!

Using the outline stamp on the flower, stamp and emboss in Opaque Bright White, if your previous embossing is still warm this will grab some of the white in the Sparkles area, I really liked the effect this gave. Repeat so you have two flowers, then die cut them with the matching dies.
Stamp in CP Ink Daydream 'You Are Wonderful' on a scrap of card and adhere to the panel. using foam pads adhere the flowers and finish off with a few sequins. Adhere the panel to the card base.

My next card is as simple as simple can be, using the gorgeous little gift out of the Happiness Enclosed Stamp set and the teeny tiny heart…. (I adore this and often the little bits get over looked, so I thought I'd use them)
Stamp and emboss the little gift parcel in four different colour powders, I used Avocado, Pink Robin, Bird of Paradise and First frost.
I filled in areas with the tiny heart, did I tell you I lOVE this :) :) using the Catherine Pooler inks in Party dress, Green Tea and Tutti Frutti.
One thing we often get asked is 'How fine are your powders?' well…. take a look at this, it's the smallest font and it embossed like a dream…. To make it 'pop' I mounted it onto a bit of black card stock and adhered it across the front of the card.

I wasn't going to do a third card, BUT….. Catherine and her team sent me the most beautiful background stamp 'Kaleidoscope Background Stamp' OH MY !!!! it's absolutely a dream to work with, as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do a multi coloured embossed background. I teamed it up with the fabulous Postage Stamp Dies to make a frame.
Start by die cutting a frame from the Postage Stamp Dies, I used the largest ones. Ink up the stamp and place your card stock on top of the stamp and rub all over to transfer the ink.
Next, using one colour of embossing powder at a time, sprinkle in areas shaking off the excess as you go.
On the last colour, fill in the whole design, this will put powder wherever you didn't get the other colours. Heat set.
 Add an adhesive foam strip to the back of the frame and adhere to the front panel.
Using the 'Hello' die from Pink and Main, die cut the word and the outline, adhere the outline to the card front. Ink up the 'Hello' using Daydream.
 Ensure the ink is dry, then emboss three times with Clear Gloss.
 Adhere to the outline piece.

I hope you've enjoyed my creations.


Hugs

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…
