Spellbinders / October 2017 Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY


Welcome!  I am so honored to be helping Spellbinders alongside so many fabulous designers to celebrate their October release of Die D-Lites.  They have some amazing new die collections! 


I went very Clean and Simple to show off these dies.  I love florals and used the new Die D-lites Daisy 2 Etched Dies I started with 2 panels trimmed at an angle, one in grey and one in black.  After adding these to my white top folding notecard, I added a stamped sentiment to follow the angle of the panels.  Using the Daisy 2 Dies, several were die cut with red, pink, yellow, green, and orange cardstocks.  Once I had these in an arrangement I liked, I used Press 'n Seal to pick up the arrangement, add glue, and adhere in place.  TIP:  these dies also emboss but I didn't want that much dimension here.  


To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to FIVE lucky winners. Please leave a comment on Spellbinders blog by Thursday, October 19th 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day.

Now, for the giveaway from MY blog.........a $25 Gift Certificate to the Spellbinders store.  Just leave me a comment by Thursday, October 19th and I'll pick a lucky commenter!  Winner chosen will be contacted by me!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Starting off this release with the adorable new coloring set called Eskimo Kisses.  After Copic coloring my images and die cutting, I added them to my scene which was made using blue dotted paper from Spots & Stripes Brights Paper Pad.  My sentiment was white heat embossed onto a black strip of cardstock that was cut into a banner with scissors.  The edges of the card base was done using the new Stitched Borders 1 SugarCut.

Catherine Pooler / Stamp of Approval Box Release

Merry Christmas

I am so excited to let you know that the Stamp of Approval Box: Winterhaven is now available for purchase from Catherine Pooler.  Remember to grab those add-on products to round out the collection!

I've used Here We Come A-Caroling along with the add-on dies for this set.  I stamped the star cluster with Versamark and white heat embossed.  I added a few white dots heat embossed as well.  I added the Santa and reindeer image onto a white die cut circle that has the Winterhaven house/tree dies added in black silhouettes.  My sentiment was stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed over the music score stamp.

Lil' Inker Designs / A Haunting We Will Go


Hello!  Stopping in with a quick Halloween card.  I adore these cute critters from the A Haunting We Will Go from Lil' Inker Designs.

I used the Side Stitched Rectangles on a grey panel and stamped the spider web multiple times in black ink.  Using the Stitched Chevron Border Die, I ran it through once and then again shortening it for my card layout.  I added my Copic colored critters and bat along with some black gems.


Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Catherine Pooler Designs / Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Blog Hop

Tis the Season

Welcome to Day 2 of the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Blog Hop!  I'm excited to share some projects today featuring this fabulous collection.

How does ordering work?
Our Stamp of Approval Collections are while supplies last and when they are sold out, they are sold out.  (You will be able to purchase the items individually later in our shop.)

My first card uses Tis the Season.  I stamped the poinsettias in Rockin Red and Icing on the Cake using the rock 'n roll technique.  The leaves were all embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder.  My sentiment was stamped onto a strip of white cardstock and layered with vellum and added to my panel with foam ahesive.  For some bling, I added some gold sequins in various sizes.

Tis the Season2


My second card uses the Wreath of Joy die set.  I die cut the wreath and "dipped" it in watered down Lime Rickey and Grass Skirt Catherine Pooler inks.  I love love this look!


The Joy word die was die cut with red cardstock and along with the background, was spritzed with Gold Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  My wreath was layered onto tri-level square panels.  This leaves the card fairly flat for mailing!
