It should come as no surprise to you all that Stampingbella is one of my ALL TIME favourite Stamp lines ( I cannot get enough!) so therefore it is one of the lines I actually put on sale most often so that everyone gets a little more Stampingbella love in their lives! SO starting right NOW until October 30th ALLStampingbella stamps and dies will be 20% off!!!
I really love the Pattern Play Circles by Altenew. I’ve used it in different cards as the main stamp but I also think it makes a brilliant background like in this card.
For the background I used Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink to stamp the circles, then Wow! Embossing Ink pad to stamp in some of the circles and sprinkled with Wow! City of Angels Embossing Powder and heat set.
I have used one of the Large Santoro Gorjuss Girls (we have three different ones in stock) and coloured her using Spectrum Noir Markers.
I found the perfect sentiment for this card in the Honey Bunn Stamp Set by Mama Elephant.
Are you joining in #thedailymarker30day challenge hosted by Kathy Rac on Instagram?? I am, all you need to do is a pic on Instagram everyday during the month of your colouring and use the hashtag above (I missed one day so far) but here are the posts I have done so far and the supply list for each.
I am SOOOOO excited about these products because they are AMAZING!!! These are so fun and easy to use, grab these, some watercolour paper and you are set! They work brilliantly with stamps, embossing, sparkle pens, there are just so many techniques!
I have been wanting to use these two Catherine Pooler Stamp Sets since they arrived in my shop, but I had some projects on the go that needed to be finished first, so the moment they were done today I grabbed the Doin’ The Polka Background Stamp and the Grateful Heart Stamp Set. I had totally planned to colour in these flowers but loved the look as it was so I just added a little sparkle instead with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay
Cut your piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock (or Catherine Pooler Smooth White Cardstock) to measure 4.25″ x 5.5″.
Using your Tim Holtz Stamp Platform (I used the *NEW* travel sized one), position the sentiment and the large floral spray on the card as shown:
Stamp the floral spray into a piece of stamp masking paper, cut out and stick over top of the floral spray that is stamped directly onto the card.
Using the Doin’ The Polka Background Stamp, stamp in versa mark to totally cover the card (Don’t worry your floral spray is protected by the masking paper), sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.
Using a mini ink blending tool with Catherine Poole “It’s A Girl” ink start at the top right hand corner and work down on a diagonal. In the lower left hand corner blend up with Catherine Pooler Ink in “Party Dress” and blend the two together.
Cut a piece of black pearl cards that measures 6″ x 4.5″ and cut a decorative edge into the top using a die from the Crafter’s Companion Decorative Edge die.
Attach the Card front to the black Panel using some double sided tape. From here you can either make a card back and attach pr mount this right onto a card blank.
Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks to see more projects that I make with these amazing stamp sets!
Also, it is totally worth noting that by far, Catherine Pooler Inks are indeed the best and most versatile inks that I have EVER used!
Just to let you know that the extended sale on Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers will end this Sunday (March 25, 2018). They will then return to the Regular Retail price of $5.50 from the $5.00 sale price……which is still a good deal!
