BLOG HOP Line Up - 




If you are hopping along, you should have come from Josefine Fouarge

Your next stop is Justine Hovey



If you get lost along the way, heed back over to the WOW! Embossing Powder or Catherine Pooler Designs blog for the complete listings of designers joining in the hop. 



So here is what I made with the gorgeous goodies…

This is the first time I've used the gorgeous Catherine Pooler ink pads  - oh they are fabulous - super juicy, beautiful bright vibrant colours to and because they are dye-based you can do ink 'smooshing' with them.  



Background of card randomly stamped using 'Be Mine' and "All that Jazz'. I did some 'ink smooshing' with the same colours, spritzed with water which created the lovely pastel postage layer to my card.  Stamped hearts using WOW! Embossing ink pad and White Pearl Embossing powder, this is so pretty in real life.  I added 'Girls Best Friend' Sparkles in the centres.  Stamped and embossed the fabulous sentiment with Platinum embossing powder - probably my favourite! Punched some daisies from spare 'ink smooshed' card, curled the petals and added gems to centres.


Up close to see the detail.....

I loved this set so much that I couldn't resist making a few more cards - hope you like them....
Rainbow coloured envelopes with platinum embossed little hearts and the borders top and bottom are card stock, the edges inked with an embossing ink pad and then dipped in Platinum embossing powder before being heated to melt the powder.  Love those diagonal stripes either side too.


Up close to see the details...
Love this rainbow of hearts, embossed with clear powder to give a wonderful enamelled look to them and again those diagonal stripes! Just love them.  
Up close to see the details....
Im known for my clean and simple cards, well you can't get much more clean and simple than this, but I just love it!
Hope you do too?
Up close to see the details of the embossed envelopes and just look how wonderful that fabulous sentiment looks embossed with Apple Red embossing powder!
