A little more Tropical with Catherine Pooler!

I am so LOVING this release from Catherine Pooler and I have been working on more cards today so I thought I would pop a quick tutorial up for you 🙂

You’re so tweet – how cute is that?!

Here is how I made this sweet Tropical card:

  • Cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Stamping Cardstock to 16 cm x 9.5cm
  • Using The Toucan Do It Stamp Set from Catherine Pooler’s latest release stamp out the two birds in an alcohol proof inkpad.
  • Use the double flower from the same set and stamp along the edge of the lower half of the card with your alcohol proof ink pad.
  • Apply a thin layer of Nuvo Making Fluid using a fine tip brush, allow to air dry completely.
  • Once dry using your Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brush, blend Shea Butter Ink along the top of the card, then Bellini, and Finally Party Dress along the bottom.
  • With your finger rub off the Nuvo Masking Fluid.
  • Colour the birds and flowers using your Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers.
  • Stamp some flowers on the card using Shea Butter and Bellini Ink, cut two flowers out using the Toucan Do It Coordinating Dies, adhere with foam squares.
  • Add Wow! Glass Slipper Sparkles to the centres of the flowers.
  • Stamp a Border using the Good Vibes Stamp Set along the top left hand side of the card with and embossing ink, sprinkle on Wow! Wanderlust Embossing Glitter and heat set.
  • Mat and layering using gold glitter yardstick and pastel card.
