Clean and Simple Plaid Note Card with Melissa

0 comments

Hi, everyone! I’m Melissa from Catherine’s design team and I’m honored to be guest posting today on her blog. I wanted to share a card made using one of the new inks and the new background stamp from the newly released Paradise found release.

For my card today, I decided I wanted to create a bit of a masculine card. I did add some twine and gold embossing to the card, but if you wanted to keep it super masculine, you could omit the twine and stamp the sentiment using Midnight ink instead.

I started by creating the patterned paper strip. I used a strip of white card stock, the Green Tea ink, and a mini ink blending tool to create my own piece of Green Tea card stock. I then stamped the card stock with the Plaid Background stamp using Midnight ink. To complete the panel, I matted the plaid paper I created on some Midnight card stock.

I created a layer from white card stock cut to 4⅛” x 5⅜”. Without adhering it yet, I laid the matted plaid panel on the layer to decide where I wanted to place it. This allowed me to line up my sentiment just above where the plaid panel. I used the Merry Christmas stamp from the Here We Come A-Caroling stamp set from the recent Winterhaven Stamp of Approval collection for the sentiment. I stamped it using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it using Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder from WOW!.

I wrapped the plaid panel with some natural twine three times and finished it in a bow. I adhered it to the layer just below the sentiment using liquid glue. Finally, I adhered the layer, also using liquid glue, to one a white note card and that completed the card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today.

Happy crafting!

Adding Details to Winter Woodland with Lisa Harrolle

PLAID BACKGROUND is back in stock y’all!  Just in time for this simply amazing card by Lisa Harrolle…check it out!

Hi everyone, Lisa here. I’m just stopping by Catherine’s blog today to share a little Christmas card that I made using a whole mix of stamps and dies from the Catherine Pooler Designs store. One thing that I absolutely love about Catherine’s designs is that they all work so well together.

For this card I started out by stamping a card front with the awesome Plaid Background stamp, using Peppermint Scrub ink from Catherine’s Spa Collection. I added some dark gray stripes using my ruler and a kuretake watercolor marker then added some sparkle over the lines with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. Super easy!

I diecut this plaid piece using the outer die from the Lattice Frame Die set and one of the circles from the Circles Dies set. The sentiment from the Merry & Bright Boughs stamp set fits perfectly inside this circle die so after securing the plaid piece with temporary adhesive, I stamped it directly onto the card front using my Misti stamp positioner!

While I was at it, I also added a little bird and some foliage from the Winter Woodland stamp set on each corner using Black Jack ink and Peppermint Scrub for the berries. Then I popped up the plaid panel with some dimensional tape.

Spa Release 013adj2 copy.jpgSMALL I could have stopped there with a perfectly fine card but I really wanted to add a fun Christmas image. I decided to stamp the little deer from the Winter Woodland stamp set with Catherine’s Icing on The Cake ink. Now, Icing on The Cake is a pretty dark brown and I wanted my deer to be lighter so I inked up my stamp and then stamped off once on a scrap piece of paper, then stamped the image on white cardstock. I love the soft, textured affect that it gave the deer.

I added some simple shading by using a brown Prismacolor pencil and love how it turned out! I used some solid Icing on The Cake for the antlers, added a little eye and nose with a black Pitt Pen by Faber-Castell and a white sparkle in the eye with a white Gellyroll pen.

I fussy cut this deer because I didn’t have the dies at the time but I highly recommend getting the coordinating dies for this Winter Woodland set. It’s just so much easier than cutting (speaking for me and my bad eyes anyway). Some silver sequins and a big natural twine bow are great finishing touches for this card.
