Catherine Pooler Party Collection: Spring Fling Blog Hop!

Hi!
Welcome to the Spring Fling Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Ingrid's blog! I have lots of inspiration to share today! I really had a good time creating using the new inks, stamps and dies.

All of these new products are available in the store, right now! Squee! They sell out quickly, so head on over there ASAP! :)


Plus, there is an amazing online catalog to flip through and see everything at a glance! 
It is simply amazing!!!




For my first project, I really wanted to showcase the inks, so I used a blender with a scrap piece of paper to make sure they were the highlight of this card!



Next, because I can't resist flicking inks onto watercolor paper... I used the new inks as watercolors and painted them onto the stamped images and background with a waterbrush.

Stamps Used: Beautiful You


I wanted to create a softer card using the Mother's Day sentiment, so I did just that! I gently blended the inks together with a blender and masked off part of the card panel using a scrap piece of paper.

Stamps Used: Simply Stated


Finally, I created two circular shaker cards! These are my favorites, for sure! I think the pop of black in the sentiments just really accentuates the soft pastel ink colors.  I die cut the sentiments with adhesive on both the front and back, so I could add glitter to the fronts and easily adhere them on the back.





For full details on the goodies today, check out Catherine's Blog.  There is a GIVEAWAY, but you have to hop to win (THREE lucky winners will each win the ENTIRE new ink release, or a gift certificate of equivalent value to the Catherine Pooler store if you’ve already purchased them!)!
