Alcohol Inks Catherine Pooler Die Cutting Giveaways Stencils/Masks Techniques

All that Jazz Release Blog Hop and Release DAY

The All That Jazz Release from Catherine Pooler is AVAILABLE NOW! Stamps, dies, stencil and a new ink color!!!!!!! Welcome to the final day of blog hops! If you’d like to check out the other two days, click HERE.   I’ve got a couple of cards and a tag to share with you today!!!!

My first card features the “wonderful” die from this collection. I partially stamped a sentiment from the Good Things Stamp Set (from the Counting Blessing stamp of approval that also released today) and then adhered the wonderful. :). I stamped the sentiment onto an alcohol inked background with Midnight ink and heat embossed in black. I added some of the polka dots from the Doin’ the polka stamp set. Who doesn’t love polka dots???

For my next project, I wanted to focus on the new Square Dance stencil so I decided to make a card and coordinating tag.


I started by inking up the stencil with It’s a Girl and Shea Butter ink and the spritzed it with water and “stamped” with it by pressing the stencil onto a piece of watercolored cardstock. It gave me a beautiful print to work with.

Sentiment courtesy of the Good Things Stamp set. I love the bold sentiments and how fun they are designed. So happy this has finally released.

For my card, I did the same thing that I did above, inking up and stamping with the stencil. One dry, I offset the stencil a bit and applied some whipped spackle thru the stencil. It elevated the stencil to a whole new level.

See how you can still see the design from the “stamped” stencil and then the designed and raised dimension from the whipped spackle? And I just adore that “wonderful” die so I used it again…..

    Very Creative projects! Hows the snow up your way LOL ya not funny can not believe we are having a snow storm Now in March UGH

  68. Wow ! You’ve made such an incredible job with the backgrounds !

  69. I thought that first card was watercolor, because it was a little more muted than many alcohol ink backgrounds that I’ve seen. I think that’s great to know that one can achieve that look with alcohol inks! And the reinker cards are really nice too. I love the offset spackle one; that’s such a cool look! Thanks so much for sharing these great techniques with us!
