For this blog hop, I created two fun cards using inks and dies from Catherine Pooler Designs! A full list of available products are listed at the end of this blog post.

Catherine Pooler stamps, inks, and dies make creating cards a breeze! For this project, I used a direct to paper technique using CP inks!

Starting with a 4.25 x 5.5 inch white card panel, I applied Catherine Pooler stamping inks directly to the panel, creating a vertical strip of color from the top to the bottom of the panel. Each color overlaps slightly, creating an interesting color blending effect!

For my second card, I repeated this same technique using the front of a 4.25 x 5×5 inch card base.

Next, I ran the inked panel and one solid white 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel through my Gemini die cutting machine using the Catherine Pooler Wall Flowers Cover Plate Die.

The both panels were adhered to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.

For the sentiment, I used the “We’re All in This Together” printable by Catherine Pooler. This printable was created to spread joy and encouragement during the current pandemic. To grab this FREE printable, click HERE!

Using the Picture Frame Die by Catherine Pooler, I die cut the sentiment and adhered it to the front of the panel for both cards. For the first card, I created a layered design using black card stock to frame the printable.

For a finishing touch, I stamped and die cut small flowers using the Catherine Pooler Whipped This Up Stamp Set and the Whipped This Up Dies.

I hope the projects in this blog hop bring you joy and inspire you to create something beautiful for a friend or loved well!
