Wild & Wonderful Product Release Day! Blog Hop Day 1

Share This!

W&W_Available-Now_Blog Happy Release day, my friends!  We have some pretty fabulous products hitting the shop…stamps, dies, background stamps and INK!  WOOOT!  Here is the round up!

WW Product sheet The projects today all use the super fun Kaleidescope Background Stamp.  All three of these backgrounds I made on a Live Stream with StampNation Members last week.

Kaleidescope 6 This background was embossed with Rose Gold Embossing Powder, ink sponged over the top, spritzed with water and let to dry.

The die cut Congrats was embossed several times with Rose Gold Embossing Powder.

Kaleidescope 5


Kaleidescope 4 The next background was the same ink colors, Shea Butter, Rose Petals and Green Tea.  I sponged the ink over a White Embossed Background and added the “a note of thanks” greeting.  I gently swiped my ink pad across white cardstock to get matching paper for my Rose Petals Ink!

Kaleidescope 3


Kaleidescope 2 The next background was Flirty Fuchsia, Aquatini and Lime Rickey sponged over white embossing.

I LOVE the colors that are made where the colors blended together!

A fun “thanks” stamped on the Dotted Circles die and a black strip of yardstick across the front and it's done!


Which of these three cards is your favorite?

Before we get to the hop and prizes…in other news…


Remember those palettes in the warehouse with all those boxes?   They've already made their way across the pond and I'll be right behind them!

  • Joanne Guarino May 22, 2018, 12:27 pm

  • Cindy Holmes May 22, 2018, 9:00 pm

    I so want the Kaleidescope stamp! you have really inspired me here with all these lovely cards! My favorite card I would have to say is the top one! I have always loved seeing gold and pink colors together! And this card really pops with those colors! And for choosing 4 new colors for ink pads hard choice because you already have such a great selection of them already! but my favorite colors would have to be more Pinks, Purples, Aquas, And Greens!

  • Wanda Radler May 22, 2018, 9:14 pm

    I love the rainbow Thanks card the best but that kaleidoscope background makes all the cards look amazing. TO round out your Carnivale ink colors – I think you need a deep blue, an almost neon green, another reddish orange and possibly I can’t think of anything else. Your inks are so amazing and I think you have covered them all!!

  • Kristin May 22, 2018, 10:17 pm

    LOVE this new release! These background stamps are to die for! I need them both!! Your cards are stunning. I especially love the one with the Rose Gold embossed background and embossed Congrats. That background–seriously! Kaleidoscope–stunning!

  • Jellie Bean May 22, 2018, 10:37 pm

    Nice cards!…I think you are doing a good job in colors already, so I only have one suggestion – a creamsicle or cantaloupe orange. Keep up the good work!

  • Ishani May 22, 2018, 10:47 pm

    Lovely release! Your cards are stunning! The gold embossed is so pretty with those colours!! LOVED the Thank you card and now have eyes on Limencello.. The next 4 colours.. mmm.. Am not good at that.. you are best at it!

  • Patt H. May 23, 2018, 12:16 am

    My favorite is the Congrats card with that gorgeous coloring! They are all fabulous tho. I need that Kaleidoscope! You have so many fantastic colors already so not sure what new ones are needed. Maybe some new fall colors ?

  • Connie Johnson May 23, 2018, 12:19 am

    I would like to see green, silver gray, peach added to the line :)

  • Lisa May 23, 2018, 1:42 am

    Such great colors already. A true navy, burgundy, pale yellow, and pale gray would be on my list. If metallics are coming, rose gold should top the list. :-)

  • Laurence Tremblay May 23, 2018, 3:30 am

    That’s an amazing collection, I love the stamp with words in several languages . My maternal language is French but I’m bilingual (English) I was super happy to see this stamp set because I make cards for people around me who only speak French and I’m a volunteer at our local battered women’s shelter and for several years now I go twice a week and do art therapy group with the women and children who want to participate. I wish I could win because it’s a non profit organization who has very little money to operate and help women and kids, so I’ve been buying everything for the group members who are usually between 15 and 25 each time we meet. I have watched several of your YOUTUBE videos but never took the time or had the time to come and read your blog, see your own line. And I’m super proud of you, any woman who follows her dream is an example to follow. And as for the ink shades, I’d go with rose petals, Shea butter, a khaki green and some type of blue, either marine or a periwinkle type.

    Thanks for everything Catherine

  • Arianna Barbara May 23, 2018, 5:30 am

    Wow! Fabulous new colors and cards! My fav is the first one!
    I would love to see orange, teal, coral and peach colors.

  • Leanne S May 23, 2018, 7:47 am

    What a wonderful release & those ink pads so juicy with fitting names to them.

  • Jodi Wayman May 23, 2018, 11:13 am

    Love that new background stamp & the cards you created with it! I think that a Dark Green-Teal, Electric Blue, Coral Orange-Pink and a Raspberry-Red would be great colors to add to this collection

  • Joy McCoy May 23, 2018, 11:27 am

    I like all the cards, but my favorite is the “congrats” card. The Rose Gold Embossing Powder, is indeed, WOW!! Colors in purple, blue, red, pink.

  • Iris Soscia May 23, 2018, 11:27 am

    My fave is the third card. I would like to see red, orange and green added to the Carnivale Collection.

  • Sue D May 23, 2018, 1:00 pm

    Fabulous backgrounds. My fave is the first one–so elegant.

  • Jan Arnold May 23, 2018, 1:16 pm

    I LOVE that background stamp – and I see it’s already sold out! I’ll be watching for there to be more in the store! All 4 cards are fantastic, but I think the first one is my favorite! The blending of the colors on the last card is amazing. I’m with you, the colors created when blended are awesome.

    I’m hoping for another green and a blue to round out the Carnivale Ink. Your inks are my favorite. Thanks for sharing your creativity, talent and entrepreneurship with us!

  • Darla May 23, 2018, 2:01 pm

    My favourite is the last card. Lovely combination of colours

  • Maria May 24, 2018, 11:01 pm

    Your first card is so elegant and stunning, I knew it would be my favorite, until I saw the purples and greens on the Thanks card at the end, and fell in love! Four new colors might be raspberry red, lime green, electric blue, and tangerine. Love the yellow ink in this set. It is perfection.

  • Nicole England May 25, 2018, 1:42 am

    Beautiful cards, the rose gold embossing. Colours- thats a tough one as the ones you have are so gorgeous. I would love to see a cornflower blue, azure green, rusty red and a beige grey (greige). I am dreaming already. Thanks Catherine, you are amazing.

  • Joanie Canzone May 25, 2018, 5:32 am

    Definitely orange, blue, a true green and a brown. The new colors are gorgeous and I can’t wait togetthem!

  • Sandra Wharton May 25, 2018, 7:28 am
