Who has Christmas on the brain? Anyone…. With all the things going on world wide, I need some festive inspiration to really get my brain in a positive place. The Jolly Holiday release from Catherine Pooler came at the perfect time. I sat and played for hours…. No design in mind. Just played…. Wanna see what I came up with? Oh, and before I forget! Catherine has TWO NEW INK COLORS! I didn’t get them in time to use them on my cards, but do check out the first two items in the supply list at the end of this post. The red and green are GORGEOUS, deep shades….
A chalkboard snowman! Simple to achieve and oh so eye catching! The background is something I already had made previously so it took no time at all to pull this card together. The snowman is from the Caroling Sentiments stamp set and coordinating die.
I adore the Jolly Trees stamp set… So many adorable shaped patterned tree. The Brand Ambassador made some killer projects with these trees so I wanted to try and show them off in a different way. So, I made a circle wreath! The trees outline the wreath and the sentiment is from the same stamp set as the snowman above!
Here are some more of those adorable trees. I summoned my inner mixed media gurus to create this card. It all started with a white piece of paper. Because Catherine’s inks react to water well, I was able to create a beautiful watercolored scene here. See the grey? Just some swinking with Twilight Ink.
And lastly, some simple DIY patterned paper with some of the smaller images of the set! And loving the new Merry Christmas word die!
These handmade cards only showcase a small part of the new release. I link to ALL the new release below for you! It’s really amazing and I hope you’ll check it out!!!!!!
