I was in an rainbow mood when I started designing and Catherine Pooler inks are absolutely PERFECTION! My first card features the new Birds of a Feather stamp set! I instantly thought adding some colorful feathers to a card front would be very eye catching! Any sentiment would work for this design but I had birthday on the brain! I also have a video to go along with this card. You can watch the video here or over on my blog in HD by clicking HERE.
I did a little two toned stamping on the feathers to create some dimension on the feathers. I am in LOVE with the font on the word BEST. Aren’t you??? 🙂 It’s from the Simply the Best stamp set. If you look carefully, I have a little plaid styled border over there on the right! That’s a stamp from the same Birds of a Feather stamp I used for the feathers. 🙂
Why stop at one rainbow card when I could make two!!! This next card features the GORGEOUS Medallion Mix-Up stamp set! This is a larger stamp set full of stunning medallions of different designs and sizes. I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT! I figured the DT would blow my mind with their creations and I was right. I thought I would try and do something different with the medallions. Why not a rainbow using rainbow colors? So I masked off the bottom portion of the largest Medallion image, inked it up with various colors of Catherine Pooler ink and stamped!
A colorful rainbow was born. The sentiment is from the fabulous Simply the best stamp set and YES – A coordinating word die!! LOVE LOVE! Speaking of, do you see that sparkle on that die cut? Uh huh… That’s an embossing powder created exclusively for Catherine Pooler called Wanderlust! NOM NOM!!!!
The Naturally Inspired collection has got you covered! You’ve got stamp sets, dies (both coordinating and stand alone), embossing powder and a NEW INK! That’s right! A NEW INK COLOR exclusive to this collection. It won’t be released for individual sale for many months! I used it but I’m not saying which color yet…. I’m mean like that, lol!!! You might be able to spot it.
What keeps you naturally inspired??? Me? Nothing in particular. I find inspiration everywhere I look. My mom taught me beauty is everywhere! All I have to do is open my eyes!
