#maplesyrupmonday with Catherine Pooler Designs

Have you tried Catherine Pooler inks yet??? If the answer to that question is a no, then you need to grab yourself a few and give them a try!!

I brought this line into the shop a few months back and it has since become a favorite for many people, including myself! The inks lend themselves so well to a variety of techniques but for this card I chose to simply go with straight up Stamping!

For the Stamp Set I chose the “Eat, Sleep, Create” Set and the new ink colours that were just released: Grape Crush, Be Mine, Limoncello and All That Jazz along with the awesome Midnight Black Ink which is also great to use with alcohol markers as well as watercolouring, talk about versatile eh!?

I matted the card front onto a piece of Black Tie Gala paper (also by Catherine Pooler).

In case you are unfamiliar with the #maplesyrupmonday posts, Laurie from It’s All Cut and Die and myself have teamed up to show you projects biweekly featuring companies we love all just tonhave a bit of fun, and we like to give things away on occasion too 😉

Beach Bums!

I personally LOVE doing the 30 day Daily Marker Colouring Challenge on Instagram…I don’t normally manage to get the full 30 days….ok, so I haven’t actually yet, but this time I am going to try VERY hard!

For this card I have used NEW products to my shop, I have JUST brought in The Greeting Farm stamps, which are pictured below, and Nuvo have just released their Shimmer Powders which are SO MUCH FUN!

I made the background a few days ago playing with the Nuvo Shimmer powders for the first time and had a card in mind using the New Greeting Farm “Beach Bums” stamp set.

The background I made by spritzing some water colour card stock well and then adding Nuvo Shimmer Powder in “Atlantis Burst” and “Blue Blitz”.  Once the shimmer powder dries (I used a heat gun) it is set and the mica does not rub off, which is great!

I cut the fringe that was on the towel in the stamp set to make to look a little more like an air mattress as I wanted both of these little cuties in the water.

All of the colouring is done using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers 🙂
