Catherine Pooler Designs / Paradise Found Release Blog Hop

Winter Woodland

Welcome to the Paradise Found Release Blog Hop for Catherine Pooler Designs!  
This release we are featuring 8 NEW INKS, 3 new stamp sets, 3 new die sets, and the whole Stamp Of Approval collection:  Naturally Inspired!   


Here are the new ink colors:

Peppermint Scrub
Mandarin Spice
Sauna
Green Tea
Eucalyptus
Daydream
Juniper Mist
Royal Treatment

Aren't these names awesome? This is the perfect, rich, sophisticated color collection! They fill so many color holes and they stamp absolutely perfect!  If you have been following Catherine the past week, she has been revealing all the new SPA Collection colors and they are DIVINE! 

******************************************

My first card uses one of the new stamp sets and 3 of the new inks. The new Winter Woodland set has several silhouette animals and trees. There are even matching Winter Woodland Dies (but didn't arrive in time for designing)!

Winter Woodland2


I started my card with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended Sauna, Royal Treatment, and Juniper Mist for a sunset sky (find all the inks HERE). They blended beautifully!! I added splatters of Heidi Swapp White Color Shine and then stamped my trees to the right in Midnight Ink. I hand trimmed some snowy hills and added Prisma Glitter to the edges. I stamped and hand trimmed the deer and bunny images. Then I arranged them where I wanted them and stamped the antlers in Midnight Ink as well. After all elements were adhered, I stamped the sentiment onto a white banner and added it with foam adhesive.

Best Plaid


My second card uses the new Plaid Background Stamp and the new ink, Peppermint Scrub. To stamp the plaid, I barely tapped my ink pad to the stamp to cover the surface and then laid my piece of white cardstock over and rubbed. Beautiful plaid!!! I created my sentiment using the Simply the Best stamp set and Best Die. I can't wait to create more plaids in other colors!!
