Tropical Vellum Frame with Jen

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval

Hello! This is Jen from Jen's Ink Spot with you. Today we are going to the tropics!

I started this card by creating the background. I stamped the Canvas Background Stamp with VersaMark ink on white cardstock and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used several Catherine Pooler inks to make the blended background using a foam blender. From top to bottom the colors I used are: Royal Treatment, Coral Cabana, Polished, Be Mine & It's a Girl. Once I applied each color I went back in and blended a little bit more between colors to make the transition a little smoother.

I created a frame out of white cardstock by first trimming the piece to 3 3/4″ x 5″. I then cut out the inside piece to make the rectangle frame. I cut a piece of vellum to the same size as the frame and used VersaMark ink to stamp the sun, circle image for the inside of the sun & the sentiment from the Fearless Pursuit stamp set. Those images were then embossed in fine white embossing powder. I attached the vellum piece to the white cardstock frame with adhesive.

Next, I die cut three palm trees from Midnight cardstock using the Fearless Pursuit dies. Using the vellum frame as a guide, I drew a thin pencil line on the background panel that I had earlier embossed with the Canvas Grunge Background. This would help me to know where to place the palm trees. I took the black palm trees, adhered them where I wanted them and then trimmed off the sides that went over my pencil line so that they wouldn't show when I adhered everything together. I lined the back side of my vellum frame with dimensional tape and attached it to my card panel, which I then attached to my white card base.

Thank you for joining me today in paradise! I hope each of you have a wonderful day!

Tropical Wreath with Tracie

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval, Tropical

Hello Everyone! It is Tracie and I am happy to be here today on Catherine's blog sharing a fun card using product from the amazing Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection.

My card was inspired by the beautiful leaves and flowers in the collection. For a while now, I have wanted to learn how to make seasonal wreaths to display on our front door. I have not gotten there yet, so stamped ones will have to do! No, I do not hang cards on my front door ; )

This is a 4-1/4 inch square card with a 4 inch panel. Take the panel and stamp the wreath. I used my mini Misti, but you can accomplish this easily with a stamp block too. I placed the panel in the corner of my stamping platform.

Then I positioned a leaf from the Leave Me in Paradise set on the top center of the panel. The leaf was then stamped in Aquatini ink. Rotate panel and repeat until all four sides have been stamped. Now it is time to reposition the leaf stamp to the corner and then do the same as prior, but heat emboss.

For my heat embossing I used a beautiful gold from WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine, and I only applied one layer. After embossing I adhered the panel to the card base with liquid adhesive.

Now it is time to decorate the wreath. I absolutely love flowers and Hibiscus are a favorite. It is actually sad the flowers only last for one day. Stamp and die-cut three of the Hibiscus flowers. I used the fabulous Coral Cabana and Limoncello inks. Adhere the flowers with foam tape.

We can't forget about a sentiment. The sentiment is from the Tropically Yours set and is heat embossed on vellum in the same gold color as the leaves. Trim the embossed vellum to 2-3/8 x 1-3/8 inches. Adhere this vellum to a Midnight panel measuring 2-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches.

All it needs is a couple dots of liquid adhesive on the left edge. This will get tucked under one of the flowers when the sentiment panel is adhered to the card, hiding the adhesive. Adhere the sentiment panel to the card with foam adhesive.

I challenge you to create a wreath with the Tropically Yours Collection. Make sure to tag #catherinepoolerdesigns.

Thank you and have a beautiful day. – Tracie

Stamped Off Background with Kelly

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval

Welcome, friends!  It's Kelly and I'm excited to be sharing this card here on Catherine's blog today. It was one of those “Not sure where this is gonna go, but let's enjoy the ride!” type of cards. I know you can relate, right?! And sometimes, that's when some of our favorite cards are born!

So let's get down to it.

I cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 x 8 inches and scored at 4 inches and set it aside to use as my card base.

I then trimmed a piece of cardstock to 4 x 4 inches to use as my card panel. I used the Good Vibes border stamp set to stamp the background, but I dabbed off some of the ink before I stamped to give the faded and splotchy look.

I stamped my images from the Tropically Yours set and then used the matching dies to cut them out. I set them aside to assemble at the very end.

I then traced a circle (using the bottom of a gesso paint tub) on to a scrap piece of white cardstock and cut that out with my scissors. I used a small sponge dauber to apply the Aquatini ink to the edges, just to make sure the circle piece didn't blend into the background too much.

At this point I was concerned about running out of room for my sentiment, so I went ahead and took care of that right away!  I then applied some fun foam on to the back and adhered the circle piece on to my card panel.  I arranged my floral and leaf images and then glued them down to the panel.

So, after taking a look, I wanted to fill in some of the white space to give the card a more finished look. Don't forget to look around your craft room for things you can use as a filler “image”. For me, it was a paintbrush. I used the end of two different paintbrushes and pounced it into my ink and then “stamped” it on to the circle piece.

To finish off the card, I glued the panel down to the base and then took a nap. Which is seriously the best way to finish off a card, am I right?!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Inlaid Die Cutting with the Cabana Tiles Dies

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval

Hi everyone! It's Chrissie.  I'm super excited to be back on Catherine's blog today! I had so much fun creating this card. It's one of those cards that's worth every second of the card making process.

Here are the step-by-step instructions so that you can easily reproduce this card.

Trim one piece of cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, score and fold at 4 1/4 inches. This will be the card base. Set it aside.

Next, trim another piece of white cardstock, but this one should be 5 1/4 x 4 inches. This will be the main card panel. Set it aside for now.

Die cut 10 Cabana Tiles out of white cardstock. Punch out the inner pieces and set those aside for a future project. Keep the outer 10 pieces for this card.

On a separate piece of cardstock, create several ink circles. Create 4 of each color: Coral Cabana, Orange Twist, Limoncello, Grass Skirt, Fiesta Blue and Pixie Dust. Die cut each one of these out. Punch out the inner pieces. Those will be used for this card. Set aside the outer pieces for a different project (see the Tropically Yours Project Guide for a card that uses these!).

On the main panel, stamp sentiment from Tropically Yours in Midnight Ink.

Assemble the die cut pieces onto panel and adhere using adhesive (liquid adhesive is suggested). Adhere white die cuts onto the panel in a diagonal pattern. Add in color pieces into each white die cut. This is time consuming, but also very therapeutic!

Trim off excess from the edges and assemble card; adhere front panel to card base using foam squares.

Thank you so much Catherine for having me on the blog today!

Masked and Sponged Sunrise with Kristie

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval

Hi everyone, Kristie here sharing a card using some goodies from the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection.

My card features some masking & ink blending using Catherine's inks. I love how these inks blend! I use the fun and jam packed Fearless Pursuit stamp set along with a sentiment from the Good Vibes Borders stamp set.

I started my card by masking off all 4 sides of my card base using post it tape. This leaves me a fun little rectangle to do some ink blending. I started with Limoncello ink at the bottom, then Coral Cabana in the middle and finally Flirty Fuchsia on the top. After getting the blend I was looking for I spritzed with water to get some water marks.

After removing the post it tape, I stamped the palm trees using midnight ink. I then placed another piece of post it tape across the bottom of the ink blended rectangle to be able to stamp half of the sun. I then white heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up onto my card base.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoyed my project today!

Grunged, Sponged, Stamped and Embossed Background

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Embossing, Encouragement, Stamp of Approval

Hello my friends!  Stampers across the country have received their Stamp of Approval Collections and have begun posting great tropical cards and projects on the internet.  We LOVE to see what you are creating, so if you share, please use #catherinepoolerdesigns or #stampofapproval so we can find you!

I had a blast getting inky with this background…all the layered goodness gave such amazing character to what really is a very simple card!  View the video tutorial to see how it was done.

Let's talk about the layers.

Canvas Grunge Background Stamp created the first layer of color and texture.

On top of that, the Coral Cabana Ink Pad was sponged lightly around the edges and a bit through the middle adding some great color to the background.

Next, the basket weave pattern from the Good Vibes Border Stamp Set was stamped over that to create even more interest.

Next, the mesh-like border stamp was stamped in WOW Embossing Ink, the embossed with Rose Gold. The metallic shine that gave just put this over the top!

One last element that I almost forgot!  The leaves from the Leave Me in Paradise Stamp Set…they were stamped in the same color as the background.  Can you see the detail that shines through from the stamps layered under the leaves?  I LOVE this look so much!

The card was finished off with some things they were laying on my desk!  A left over flamingo from the Stand Tall Stamp Set, a die cut leave from Leave Me in Paradise and the sentiment on a die cut circle were all the perfect touch.

I may try this design again with different colors and different die cut images over the top.  Do you have any suggestions?  Leave me a comment and let me know.

Fun & Whimsical with Karen

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval, Tropical, Uncategorized

Hello, Karen here from The Bald Dragonfly with a fun and whimsical card featuring items from the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection.

This card packs a punch, but is really simple to create! I started with a card base made from the Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. I stamped (with Coral Cabana, Midnight and Daydream inks) a bottom border created from the Good Vibes Stamp Set.

Then, I created a free background with some splatters of Coral Cabana Ink. I stamped an awesome, uplifting sentiment from the Fearless Pursuit Stamp Set. I finished the card by stamping one of the flamingos from the Stand Tall Stamp Set, die cut it out with the Stand Tall Dies, and then watercolored it very lightly with Coral Cabana Ink.

See how simple it is to create a fun, uplifting card with these awesome products from the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection? I hope you were able to pick one up and enjoy it!

Tropical Ink Smooshing with Susan

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval, Tropical

Hi Everyone! Susan here and I'm thrilled to be visiting Catherine's blog today with a card that I had so much fun making. I used products from the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval collection. This is my favorite box so far!

I used what seems to be my favorite technique lately, Ink Smooshing. It's so much fun because each time you do it the results are different.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper that I cut to 3 ½” x 4 ¾” and prepped it with an embossing buddy. I stamped a variety of leaf images from the Leave Me In Paradise stamp set (love that name) using versamark ink and then heat set them with white embossing powder.

I used Coral Cabana, Melon Ice, Aquatini and Flirty Fuchsia inks to do the ink smooshing technique. For this technique it's best to start with the lighter color and work your way up to the darker ones. Start by smooshing some ink onto a craft mat and then give it a few sprays of water. Take the watercolor paper and start pouncing the paper into the ink puddle in a few spots around the paper. Heat set it with a heat tool and then repeat the process with the next color and so on until you're happy with the look.

I love this sentiment from the Fearless Pursuit stamp set. I stamped it with midnight ink onto white cardstock and cut it to just the size of the sentiment. I sponged the edges with Coral Cabana ink.

I added the technique piece to the card base using craft foam and the sentiment was added to the technique piece using a thinner piece of craft foam.

A simple and fun card to make!

If you've never tried ‘Ink Smooshing' before I hope you're encouraged to give it a try.

Happy Stampin'

Susan


Adding Interest to Stamped Images with Ardyth

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Gallery, Projects, Stamp of Approval, Tropical

Good morning! It's Ardyth and I'm excited to be here on Catherine's blog with this card using stamps and dies from the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection.

I started with a white panel trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4. I lightly blended Fiesta Blue ink onto the centre. Next, I stamped the leaves with Lime Rickey, using a stamp positioner. This allowed me to add some depth to the centres of the leaves with Aquatini ink.

On a separate panel, I stamped a flower with Limoncello ink, using a stamp positioner. I used a sponge dauber to add Tiki Torch ink to the centre and edges of the flower, to create dimension. I used the same method to stamp another yellow flower and then another, this time using Coral Cabana and Tutti Frutti inks. I added the stamens with black ink.

I die cut the flowers and arranged them on my card front. Before I glued them down, I placed my sentiment on my stamp positioner, removed the flowers and then stamped with Midnight ink.

I adhered the flowers to the white panel, popping up the Coral flower for some more dimension.

To finish my card, I glued the completed panel to a black 4 1/4 x5 1/2 card base.

These pops of tropical colours are warm and sunny and perfect for this summertime card!

Inlaid Die Cutting and Gold Foiling for Hand Made Cards

Catherine CP Designs, Die Cutting, Encouragement, Stamp of Approval

You guys…I am having a foiling frenzy over in the Clubhouse!  These new Cabana Tile Dies from our latest SOA, Tropically Yours, look completely amazing with metallic pops and now I think I am addicted to trying out different combos.  

On this first card, I wanted to try out blending some sunset inspired colors from our Spa Collection.  One of my favorite Summer treats, is sitting on the beach in the evening and taking in all the colors. This warm color palette just feels right with shadowy palm trees…turning the shapes into a funky version of that dusk sky.  What do you think?

Here's the full video tutorial on how I made this card.

This one just may be one of my favorites!!  I blended together bold Party Colors like Flirty Fuchsia, Something Borrowed and Party Dress and colored by own custom card stock,  then I cut all of the same shapes with the Cabana Tiles using gold foil to mix and match, creating these inlaid shapes.  Layer on two palm trees from the Tropically Yours die set and this card just screams Miami to me…road trip!!  

Another way to add pizzazz to these dies is to emboss die cut hexagons with the Midas touch Embossing Glitter.  This card sparkles like crazy!  It really plays up the art deco feel of these dies.  By arranging the shapes around this bold sentiment from the Fearless Pursuit stamp set makes it the star.

This one I made live, this week, over on my YouTube page.  If you want to take a closer look and craft along…here's the link to that video!

So, are you feeling lured in to do some inlaid die cutting and play with foil??  

I think once you get started, you will also find it hard to stop!  I am on a role, people!

Coral Cabana and a gold embossed sentiment is sheer perfection!  I just went shopping with my soon-to-be college student getting stuff for her dorm room.  Coral, Burgundy and Gold….this card would look perfect as a framed piece in her room!

Check out the full card and details on Tracie's blog.

The texture from the Canvas Grunge background stamp and Good Vibes Border sets is off the HOOK on this card!  It's exactly what I was thinking when we worked on the designs for these stamps.  It's so great to see ideas come alive like this!

Visit Melissa's blog post here.

The sentiments in this collection are all time personal favorites of mine.  “Don't stop until your proud”, “Follow your soul it knows the way”, “Your vibe attracts your tribe”, “you had me at aloha”, and this one…I don't know if I'll ever get enough of using these on cards!  

Jenny made this amazing sentiment the star of her card and has two different ones on her blog, check it out here.

This card by Maureen is sophisticated perfection!  The perfectly stamped and placed hibiscus with the Spa Collection Color Palette, and the simple sentiment and border stamp all come together to make a magnificent card!

View this on Maureen's blog!

Seriously…the black on black texture on this background makes me giddy!  I LOVE it!  See it in its full glory on Kristie's blog here.

Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day #3

Catherine CP Designs, Encouragement, Stamp of Approval

Welcome to the third and final day of Blog Hops celebrating the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Collection!   What incredible inspiration we’ve had over the past few days.

If you are new to Stamp of Approval Collections—

We design a collection of products that come in one fabulous box and provide a free Project Guide download with step-by-step instructions for dozens of hand made cards using the collection!  We talked about the concept and gave a behind the scenes look at this collection on this YOUTUBE LIVE.

Our very first collection premiered August 6, 2015 and was such a huge hit!  We sold out in 1 hour and 1 minute….  Then we oversold, panicked, then made a plan and everyone was happy in the end. We’ve grown a lot since then and it’s been an amazing ride!

Each quarter, people from around the globe tell me what a difference Stamp of Approval makes for them.  To some it might just be a box of stamps.  But to others, it’s a creative outlet.  It’s a way to gather with friends and bond.  It’s the perfect way to send messages of love to friends and family.

To this community, it also bring us together.  SOA fans are like kids on Christmas morning (me included!!!) and as an adult, it’s not often that we get to feel like that!  And how much fun is it to share in that TOGETHER?

Thank you for sharing in this amazing paper crafting ride with me…you all make it SO MUCH FUN!

I have a few projects today, then watch for us on Facebook and Youtube (like my page, subscribe and turn on notifications).  I'm sure we'll pop on and do some stamping!

I LOVE the background on this card.  I stamped the Canvas Grunge Background stamp, then sponged Tiara ink over it.  I love this textured look!

Then I die cut the palm trees and coconuts, cut them out and mounted them on a card layer along with the greeting and the sun.

The next card has a great layered look with the sentiment in black on a white layer, then popped up on top of a layer that is 1/8″ larger.  I tucked the stamped images in between and under the layers.

The tropical leaves were stamped in bright fun colors from our Party Collection of ink.  I love the rainbow look!  It's unexpected and fun.

The inspiration doesn't stop here…TONIGHT is our PJ Release Party at StampNation and we are scurrying around the office getting ready.  

Our Live Streams are always a ton of fun.  We’ll chat, give you a peek behind-the-scenes, answer questions, have some trivia (and prizes!), stamp and send StampNation Members the super-secret early ordering link.

This card I made on YouTube Live using as many stamps as possible from the set!  I LOVE the tropical feel of this card!

This card was made with the Cabana Tiles Dies.  I die cut all the hexagons and dabbed each one into a different color ink and adhered them to my card front to get a fun and graphic “Good Vibes” card.
