Dream Team Member, Lisa Harrolle, has been sharing some fabulous cards made with the Foundations Box over the past week!  Don’t miss her Thank You card here and her Ornament Card here.

She didn’t stop there…she pulled out some awesome techniques to use with the new Catherine Pooler Inks and I LOVE what she came up with!  Take it away, Lisa!


There are so many fun ways to stretch these inks.  Ink blending and water coloring made it’s way onto my next card.

First I heat embossed these adorable little cups from the For Everything stamp set that is included in the Foundations Box with white embossing powder.  I water colored over each cup using the Grass Skirt and Orange Twist inks.

Then I broke out that fabulous Fiesta Blue ink and a blending tool and went to town blending over the top of the whole card front.   Wait…..there’s another trick that works great with these inks.  I just added some water droplets all over the card and used a paper towel to lift up the color.  Perfect distressing!

I absolutely LOVE this card!  If you haven’t ordered your Foundations Box yet, we are taking orders and they will be shipping the week of December 13.  Plenty of time for our US friends to give the gift of creativity this year!

    Beautiful card, so fun! Love the watercoloring and great idea to use those smaller super cute stamps.
